Kenneth and Helen Felumlee back when it all started 7 decades ago...

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The producer of "Touched by an Angel" is back on television with a new series.
Martha Williamson is the creator and producer of "Signed, Sealed, Delivered," a Hallmark Channel show debuting Sunday night.
"Signed, Sealed, Delivered" is about an offbeat group of U.S. Postal Service employees who get hard-to-deliver mail to the right place.
Former "Ugly Betty" star Eric Mabius plays the group's straight-laced leader, Oliver.
Valerie Harper guest stars in the series' first two episodes.
Williamson's previous show, "Touched by an Angel," aired on CBS from 1994-2003.

NASHPORT, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio couple who held hands at breakfast every morning even after 70 years of marriage have died 15 hours apart.
Helen Felumlee of Nashport in central Ohio died April 12. She was 92. Her husband, 91-year-old Kenneth Felumlee, died April 13.
The couple's children say the two met as teenagers and had been inseparable since then.
The Zanesville Times Recorder reports that the pair married Feb. 20, 1944, and raised eight children.
Their daughter, Linda Cody, says the two were deeply in love to the end.
Cody says her father began to fade about 12 hours after her mother died and told them that he didn't want to leave her by herself.
She says, "We knew when one went, the other was going to go."

SUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) -- A rare snowy owl that was apparently hit by a bus in the nation's capital and sent to Minnesota for rehab is back in the wild once again.
The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota released the owl on Saturday outside Superior, Wis., near the Minnesota and Wisconsin state border.
Center director Julia Ponder says the owl is in great condition and flew off with strong, steady wing beats. She says it will hopefully head north.
The owl was found injured in downtown Washington in late January and taken to the National Zoo before being transferred to a Washington, D.C., wildlife rehabilitation center. It then came to Minnesota for rehab, because The Raptor Center has expertise in replacing damaged feathers.
Snowy owls are native to the Arctic.

SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) -- Wyoming wildlife officials say a golden eagle that was apparently electrocuted near Sheridan is the second-oldest that has been identified in North America.
The Sheridan Press reports the eagle was found March 19 under a utility pole.
Wyoming wildlife biologist Tim Thomas says the bird appeared to be electrocuted by a power line and had a small metal band attached to its leg.
Thomas says he reported the identifying numbers on the band to a federal laboratory, which said the bird had been banded as a fledgling in 1983 near Gillette.
The bird's estimated age was 30 years and 9 months, tying for second place in the lab's longevity records with a Colorado eagle.
The oldest recorded banded eagle was found in Utah in 2012, and was 31 years, 7 months old.
