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.
CHOCTAW COUNTY, OK-- Choctaw County residents will decide whether alcohol will be served in restaurants in a special election next year.
Commissioners have placed a "Controlled Drinking" proposal on a special election ballot, set for January.
If passed, the controlled drinking law would allow restaurants to serve alcohol.
Commissioners believe this will promote job and economic growth in Choctaw County.
Currently, 54 other Oklahoma counties have controlled drinking laws.
