NIRO TO LEAVE HOSPITAL
Frank Niro, Executive Director of the U.S. Chess Federation
is expected to be discharged from the hospital tomorrow, Saturday, February 8.
I have spoken to him and he is doing very well. A full recovery is
expected and tests showed there was no damage to his heart.
The medical cause seems to have been a blood clot. Stress was not a factor and he expects no
restrictions on his ability to perform his duties. Frank is eager to return to work as early as next week.
