The news she received was completely unexpected. “I was told I had stage four cancer,” she said.” I have a type of blood cancer called non-Hodgkin follicular lymphoma (NHL).

  • Lawmakers ready to tackle coal ash, education, opioid crisis, more

    As the General Assembly readies for a return to the Capitol on Jan. 2 to start another legislative session, it is worth taking a look back on what has happened since the last one ended in late March.
