STRATFORD - A retired couple in Stratford says they've been without heating oil in their home for the past three weeks. Wednesday, they got some good news with the help of News 12 Connecticut.

Wilbert and Mattie Joyner live in their house on a fixed income.

Despite the freezing temperatures, they say they haven't had heating oil in their tank since the beginning of the month.

The couple says times got tough, but today News 12 Connecticut put them in touch with State Representative Charlie Stallworth, who was able to fill the couple's tank.
