A combination of very strong winds, falling temperatures and frozen precipitation will make Wednesday and Wednesday night dangerous for motorists. Freezing rain and sleet will change to snow before ending late Wednesday or early Thursday. Wind chills of 5 to 10 degrees...with air temperatures in the low 20s...can be expected. Roads will be icy Thursday morning but should melt during the day as skies clear and temperatures rise above freezing.
3-1-05 - A man who escaped from an arraignment at the Fannin County courthouse didn’t stay free for long. Authorities captured Teddy Demtrius Ellis Tuesday night, just a few hours after he managed to slip out of the courthouse.
Ellis was being arraigned on a robbery charge, but while he was in the restroom, he managed to cut his leg restraints, which allowed him to escape. Minutes later, authorities found his jumpsuit about a block away.
Law enforcement finally caught up to Ellis at a Bonham home, after a family called 911.
