Troy High 2012 graduate posts poignant message telling smokers, "you never know what you'll miss."
On the first anniversary of her father's lung cancer death at 57, a recent Troy High graduate posted a powerful, personal message to smokers of all ages. "You are not immune to the dangers," Lia Grabowski says in a Facebook presentation of 16 handwritten photo slides. "It may not hurt you now, but you never know what you'll miss." Earlier slides list three family milestones already missed by Felix Grabowski, a former online news director at The Detroit News and co-founder of a national online education service firm based in Troy.

The post has been shared more than 100 times by outraged Facebook users by Friday evening; Janice Daniels adds a comment of her own and draws responses.
Janice Daniels is not yet a month into her new position as mayor of Troy, and she is already causing controversy after a status update slamming gay marriage on what appears to be her personal Facebook page went viral Friday afternoon. The June 25 status update reads: "I think I am going to throw away my I Love New York carrying bag now that queers can get married there."
