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.
7-21-04 - Two malnourished horses in Bryan County have been removed from their owners care, and charges of animal cruelty could be next.
It was a story First News brought you one week ago after two women had been bringing the horses water and food for weeks, in what appeared to be an abandoned field.
But as the women tried to arrange a rescue, men claiming to own the animals showed up and led them away to an even smaller pasture. But since then, Bryan County investigators have confiscated the horses and moved them to an undisclosed location. They’ve also finished a report and handed it to the Bryan County DA, which could then file charges.
