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.
5-18-04 - New business is about to blossom in downtown Sherman and residents could soon be eating it up. A developer is turning an old wholesale hardware building and lot into a farmers market.
Located near Travis and Wall Street, the market will open in June and offer fresh fruits and vegetables from area farmers. Developer Victor Ratliff hopes to eventually add live entertainment and arts and crafts to the building.
So far, half a dozen local farmers have signed up for the market and Ratliff expects that number to grow once they open. The market will be open every weekend this summer.
