Carbon Monoxide Warning

A 23 year old woman, who lives in Krakow on Highway A, called 911 after her carbon monoxide detector went off. 911 dispatchers told the woman to leave the house with her one year old child and wait in her car for Washington fire crews to arrive. the CO leak was attributed to a propane furnace. Both the woman and child were fine. Washington Fire Chief Bill Halmich is glad this situation turned out fine but says all too often carbon monoxide leaks end tragically. Halmich would like to see everyone who heats their house with fossil fuels including propane, natural gas, oil or wood burning stove to have and test a Carbon Monoxide detector. Halmich also advises people with an attached garage, no matter what type of furnace you have, to be aware of the risk of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning. Symptoms include headache, fatigue, nausea, dizziness and confusion. If your CO detector goes off, immediately leave your residence.

Coach Dusty Weiskopf says Bethany is good at handling the basketball and teams would find it difficult to press Union when Bethany was in the game because of her lateral movement. When combining her scoring and assist averages, Bethany was contributing about 25 points per game.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
