Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
2-11-06 – A group of local students are banding together to help a little boy with a rare heart condition. Clayton Pickelsimer was born with a double outlet right ventricle. A condition that causes blood to back up into his heart and brain.
Before his second birthday, Clayton underwent two major surgeries and suffered a stroke. His sister Caylin and some of her friends held a benefit in Healdton Saturday night to raise money for Clayton and other children that suffer with heart conditions.
Children attended a dance at the armory in Healdton. Proceeds will go to the Little Hearts Lifeline at Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City.
