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.
12-19-03 - The city of Ardmore got an early Christmas gift, more than $160,000. But the money belonged to the city all along.
It goes back to a story that we made public two years ago. The city’s $990,000 investment with an east coast company was frozen, due to a federal investigation.
Bentley Financial was accused of not investing clients’ money as promised. Since then, the city has slowly recouped much of the initial investment, a total of $752,000 so far.
The city is also expecting a third distribution of the remainder of the money. Since the bad investment, city leaders have changed their policies on investing with out of state firms.
