Curtice said he did not know the extent of the pilot’s injuries, but did confirm that he was the plane’s only occupant.

Blue ribbons for asthma awareness

October 24, 2013

Residents still have a couple more days to wear blue ribbons and help spread awareness of asthma – a common condition that can also be fatal.
For the 17th year in a row, family and friends of the late Christopher John Schumacher are staging Blue Ribbon Asthma Awareness Week, Oct. 15-25, to not only honor Schumacher’s memory, but to show support “for all those who have asthma and know someone who suffers from asthma,” according to organizers.
Schumacher was 14 – just shy of his 15th birthday – when he died from a severe asthma attack on Oct. 19, 1996.
