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.
2-10-04 - Ardmore police say they have their man in a charity rip-off at a local convenience store Saturday. But it's not the first high-profile trouble for Sean Jacobs. Jacobs made the news in October when police say he tried to break into an Ardmore convenience store on highway 70. But before he could get inside, the owner shot him in the face. Jacobs would bond out a few weeks later, and last Saturday night police say a surveillance camera showed him at Lasley's One Stop, where he stole a jar full of money meant for a charity. Jacobs was arrested Monday for petty larceny, but his original bond could likely be revoked for Saturday’s incident.
