A Wish Comes True

April 26, 2013

ST. MARYS — For St. Marys resident Courtney Roby, 17, this week was a little bit of sunshine in what has proven to be an impossibly difficult year.

In July 2012, doctors discovered Roby had a brain tumor. She had been having headaches five or six months earlier, her mother, Chasity Buchanan, said. She took Courtney to the chiropractor, who didn’t find anything serious. When they persisted, Buchanan scheduled Roby for a consultation at Dayton Children’s Medical Center. Roby never left the hospital that day.

Speaker Warns Teen Drivers

April 24, 2013

NEW BREMEN — Jacy Good was with her parents, coming home after her college graduation on a stretch of easy-to-drive road outside Redding, Pa., when she stopped at a gas station, and remembers deciding not to get coffee because she planned to nap later.

That’s the last thing she remembers for more than three months.

A few miles down the road, a distracted driver talking on the phone didn’t see her and her family’s vehicle or the 30-ton milk truck also involved in the accident that killed her parents.
