  • Biding his time

    March 11 will mark the 15-year anniversary of when Aaron Glasscock woke up to Drug Enforcement Administration agents storming into his hotel room in Gainesville, Fla., and arresting him for conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
    At that very moment, Aaron’s life, and the life of his family, was forever changed.
    “When the D.E.A. agents came in that morning everything I thought I knew, and my life in general, was turned upside down, and then shook,” Aaron wrote in a letter.

  • Life’s breath

    Cara Cissell Brahm is waiting – and hoping – that some day soon she'll be breathing a little easier.
    Since this summer, she has been on the list to receive a double lung transplant.
    Cara, 37, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when she was 10 years old. Two of her sisters (both older) were also diagnosed with the condition.
    “It mostly affects the lungs, but it can also affect the digestive system and the pancreas,” she said.
    Mindy died in 1999. Another sister, Lisa, received a transplant two and a half years ago.

  • HAM DAYS: Voice from the stage

    Charles Lancaster Sr. has been part of every PIGasus Parade, providing commentary and introducing parade participants as they pass the Main Street stage.
    This year, Lancaster, 78, will be seeing the parade from a different point of view — as the grand marshal.
    "This will be a real treat for me," Lancaster said.
    When Ham Days was still in its infancy, Lancaster was invited to serve as the master of ceremonies for the parade. It's something he's done ever since.
