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.
3-23-04 - New retail development looks to be paying off in Sherman and Denison. Both cities are well above their average in sales tax revenues for the beginning for 2004. Sherman reported an 11% increase from Jan ’04 to Jan ’03 while Denison reported a 20% increase during the same time period.
City leaders in both communities say it is likely a sign that the economy is rebounding locally and that consumer confidence is coming back. Sherman has added a massive retail complex at US 75 and Loy Lake Road, which should have an even bigger impact on sales taxes as more businesses open there during the coming months.
