A show of support

Athletes, coaches and fans wore orange Tuesday night at Norway High School in support of the Weaver family of Escanaba. Tara and Jerry Weaver were going to their son’s basketball game Friday when a semitrailer driver lost control on U.S. 2 in Garden Township, crossed the center line and struck their SUV head-on, resulting in their deaths. The couple is survived by three children, two of whom still attend Escanaba High School. Norway hosted Kingsford for boys and girls basketball Tuesday and conducted a fundraiser for the Weavers. At least 101 fundraisers have been set up across the region, including a GoFundMe campaign that has raised almost $167,000 to help with the funeral, college and other expenses. (Terry Raiche photo)
