Two upper level waves will interact with a warm and very moist air mass to generate thunderstorms through Saturday. Lightning and torrential rainfall that could cause flash flooding are the primary threats...with a secondary threat of damaging winds. Turn around, don't drown!
9-15-05 - The president of the Coalgate Chamber of Commerce goes on trial next week on auto theft charges.
Rebecca Washburn was arrested on June 15th on charges stemming from her rental party.
The police chief said her tenants didn't pay rent for several months, and then they left. That's when Washburn apparently took a vehicle on the property.
Washburn said it was abandoned, but the car owners disagreed. The vehicle was eventually retrieved from Washburn's property.
Washburn owns several business in Coalgate including the Country Charm Inn and the Branding Iron.
