West Virginia health officials said Saturday that several people have been admitted to hospitals for chemical-related symptoms following a solvent leak into the area's water supply that has left more than 300,000 residents unable to use tap water. Seventy-three people have gone to area emergency rooms since the spill late Thursday and four have been admitted with symptoms such as skin irritation and nausea, Secretary Karen Bowling of the Department of Health and Human Resources said at a news conference in Charleston.

At 88, Mamie G. Barr still quilts. And quilts. And quilts. Although she acknowledges her hands aren't as nimble as they once were, Barr spends eight hours sewing between one and three quilts a day to put a smile on a child's face, keep a homeless person warm while sleeping on the streets or brighten the day of an elderly invalid. The La Habra resident donates the quilts she makes of hand-me-down scraps to churches, nursing homes and service organizations that turn them over to needy people.

Mamie G. Barr, 84, remembers when welfare didn't exist. "When someone needed help, we would all get together and help them," said the La Habra woman who spent much of her life as a registered nurse. Barr is still busy helping others these days. She sometimes spends up to 10 hours a day quilting and sewing various types of garments to give to needy folks. For Christmas, she made and gave away 400 lap robes and small quilts.
