WINTER WEATHER ON THE WAY

Winter weather is on the way.  At news time the National Weather service had issued a winter weather advisory for Bond County and counties to the north, south and east, and a winter storm warning for Madison County and counties to the west.  According to the latest data Bond County could expect anywhere from 1-3 inches of Snow/Sleet and .1 inch of freezing rain/drizzle.  Warm air will take control of the upper atmosphere while cold air remains at the surface.  This will set up the freezing rain/drizzle throughout the day on Thursday.  The most likely timing for Bond County to start seeing precipitation will be late morning into early afternoon and continuing into the evening hours.  However precipitation is possible anytime on Thursday.  Untreated surfaces are likely to be slick.  Tune to WGEL Radio for the latest information on this and all storms that affect our area.

HIGHLAND FOOD PANTRY BENEFITS FROM PERFORMANCE

The Highland Area Christian Service Ministry Food Pantry received more than $5,000.00 from a recent Hard Road Theater production of Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple.”  Bill Sullivan, of Hard Road Theater, and one of the actors in the performance said the Hard Road Theater started in 2001.  The second show they produced was “The Odd Couple.”  This year, when they were deciding what shows to do, they decided to redo a previous production for their winter show.  They choose to revive “The Odd Couple” as a benefit for the HACSM Food Pantry as it is in need of extra support this time of year. To make a donation to the Food Pantry, contact Sullivan at 654-2103.
