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.
1-21-04 - What was a leaking and dilapidated pool in Sherman will soon become a water splash park. The 34-year-old pool at Hawn Park will be demolished this month. It's cost the city almost $40,000 the past few years in repairs.
So instead of continuing that cost they're building a $300,000 water splash park that will have 15 water cannons and spouts. Admission will be free and the city won’t have to hire lifeguards since the park won’t have deep water.
If the splash park is a success city officials say they will build more in the future.
