W.Va. woman gets 3 years for tax evasion

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — A former bookkeeper has been sentenced to three years and one month in federal prison for tax evasion.

Federal prosecutors said Tuesday that 40-year-old Georgiana Ciavarello of Nitro admitted stealing $759,000 from her Charleston-based employer.

She was responsible for drafting checks and making deposits and transfers into Quail Ridge Construction Co’s bank accounts.

Ciavarello admitted she illegally negotiated employee per diem checks for cash, and failed to pay income taxes of nearly $217,000 from 2007 through 2010.

U.S. District Judge Robert Chambers ordered Ciavarello to pay more than $1 million, which includes the embezzled money, the unpaid taxes and Social Security benefits she improperly received.

 

KDMC mobile mammography unit to visit Ironton

ASHLAND, Ky. — The American Cancer Society recommends women age 40 and older have a screening mammogram each year. Screening mammograms help detect breast cancer early, when it is most treatable.

To help women meet this goal, King’s Daughters Mobile Mammography Unit travels throughout the region performing mammograms. The mobile mammography unit will visit King’s Daughters Family Care Center, 912 Park Ave., Ironton, beginning at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19.

Screening mammograms do not require a physician order, but an appointment is necessary. To schedule, please call King’s Daughters Centralized Scheduling at (606) 408-2742 or toll free 1-877-304-1935.

All tests are performed by specially trained mammography technologists using digital equipment, which results in less radiation exposure.

Many insurance companies cover the entire cost of mammography; check with your insurance provider.

King’s Daughters provides a limited number of free mammograms to uninsured/underinsured women through grant funding provided by the Susan G. Komen Foundation. For more information, please call 1-888-377-KDMC (5362).
