Question: An ongoing case in U.S. federal court involves the late Fulton John Sheen — a two-time Emmy winner and a Catholic archbishop known for revolutionizing TV preaching in the 1950s and ’60s. His niece wants his ashes moved from St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Fifth Avenue in New York City to where?

Answer: She wants them in Peoria. That’s where Sheen, who died in 1979 at age 84, was ordained. He was born in El Paso, at 25 W. Front St. Actor Martin Sheen (of TV’s “West Wing” and father of Charlie Sheen) took his stage name after El Paso’s Fulton Sheen.
