ADOPT A PET: Meet Zoya

ADOPT A PET: Meet Zoya

 

DECATUR, Ga. - If you dream of coming home to a wet nose, wagging tail and tons of kisses (in addition to, perhaps, a half chewed shoe or overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local pet shelter. According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million domesticated animals enter animal shelters nationwide, every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. However, you can change those numbers but adopting a "companion" for yourself or your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.

FAMU dismisses students charged with hazing

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The four students charged last week
with hazing pledges of a Florida A&M marching band club known as
the Clones have been dismissed from the university. The move was announced Monday during a FAMU board of trustees
meeting.

The students will have a chance to appeal their dismissal
before a student judicial committee.

The four band members face misdemeanor hazing charges after
reports that other students were punched and paddled during an
initiation.

Last week's arrests are the latest in a scandal that
has rocked the university and its famed Marching 100 band.

The four students arrested were: Denise Bailey, 22; Brandon
Benson, 23; Hakeem Birch, 21 and Anthony Mingo, 22. According to a
police report, all denied that hazing occurred or said they didn't
know about it.

Short Term

We have storms delveoping all across the metro area this morning, as of 9:45 nothing is severe. As you can see down below there are more storms west of the metro area that will be moving in here soon. There is a lot of lightning with these storms. There are more storms to the north along the cold front that will be moving in later on this morning. The 3rd image below is what is called helicity. What that is is the amount of spin in the atmosphere and there is a lot of it just south of the front. The thing that is lacking this morning is instability, it is very limited. So as these storms continue to come in from the west and the north look for the main threat to be in the form of wind, hail, and heavy rain. There have been some unconfirmed reports of some wind damage in Carroll county.
