Underwood Out of the Hospital

Charleston Area Medical Center tells WSAZ-TV that former Gov. Cecil Underwood is home resting after a nearly three-week stay in the hospital.

The Associated Press also has an item on the 85-year-old, who had been admitted "on May 31 because of weakness."

"Underwood was the state's youngest governor when he was elected in 1956 at the age of 34," AP explains. "He became the state's oldest governor 40 years later when he won another term in 1996 at the age of 74."
