  • ‘God saved us all’

    Straight-line winds earlier this evening caused major damage and sent a number of people preparing for a church service scrambling for their lives.

    The storm that blew through the Alton area of Anderson County around 6:30 p.m. tore the roof off a daycare center called Abundant Life Christian Learning Tree House. At nearby Florida Tile, the strong winds flipped over two FedEx trailers and damaged a portion of the roof. The winds also damaged several homes and uprooted a number of trees.

    There were no reports of injuries.

  • Beat the heat with icy treats

    Growing up in the south Texas heat, my sisters and brothers and I were always either in the lake, the pool or the sprinkler.

    If for some reason we ever took a break from the water, we were running around barefoot with the other neighborhood kids, laughing and playing and secretly hoping to hear the music of the ice cream truck so we could enjoy a cool treat.
