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.
GRAYSON CO, TX-A Whitewright man accused of planning to rob a Sherman convenience store with a meat cleaver will spend the next year in jail.
31-year-old William Woods pleaded guilty to theft and was sentenced to 12 months in state jail. Police said back in November, Woods and 37-year-old Ernest Taylor were walking toward the Exceleron downtown carrying a meat cleaver, pepper spray and a switchblade when they were stopped by officers.
Woods was arrested on several charges at that time including the theft charge.
