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.
8-12-04 - Sherman Police Chief Jerry Caylor is retiring after 33 years with the department. Caylor made the announcement today, saying he wants to devote more time to his farm.
He began his professional career as a dispatcher with Sherman PD, eventually becoming a patrol officer and working his way up through the ranks.
For the past ten years he’s served as chief. Caylor says he’s had a fulfilling career and has mixed emotions about leaving. Caylor will officially step down at the end of August.
City officials say they will promote from within, and could name Caylor’s successor as early as Friday.
