RICK PERRY STATEMENT-SOTVOWIPE


TEXAS GOVERNOR RICK PERRY MADE A PUBLIC STATEMENT TODAY REGARDING THE DECISION OF A GRAND JURY TO INDICT HIM ON TWO FELONY COUNTS.

This indictment amounts to nothing more than an abuse of power

and I cannot, and will not, allow that to happen.

THE GOVERNOR IS CHARGED WITH ABUSING HIS POWER LAST YEAR WHEN HE TRIED TO PRESSURE THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY OF TRAVIS COUNTY, TO STEP DOWN BY THREATENING TO CUT OFF STATE FINANCING TO HER OFFICE. Return to index of stories...


RICK PERRY STATEMENT-SOTVO


I am confident

we will ultimately prevail, that this farce of a prosecution will be

revealed for what it is, and that those responsible will be held to account.

THE INDICTMENT MAKES PERRY THE FIRST TEXAS GOVERNOR IN NEARLY 100 YEARS, TO FACE CRIMINAL CHARGES.

IT ALSO PRESENTS A MAJOR ROADBLOCK IN HIS PRESIDENTIAL AMBITIONS. Return to index of stories...

WEATHER-PWC ~ WX WALL


FORECAST: HOT FINISH TO THE WEEKEND

A few scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue across Southwest Florida this evening, before the activity becomes increasingly isolated tonight.

Overnight lows should range from the upper 70s along the coastal areas of the region to the low and mid 70s for spots further inland from the Gulf of Mexico.

On Sunday, we will have a southern component to the wind, which means the chance of a shower will exist in the morning, espeically along the coastal communities and over the Gulf.

By the afternoon though, we will be feeling the impacts of a wedge of drier air in the mid levels of the atmosphere. That will help to keep rain chances isolated through Sunday afternoon.

With less rainfall to track across the region temperatures should warm near 94 at Fort Myers, 95 at Port Charlotte and 91 at Naples.

Looking forward to the upcoming work week, heat will be a headline factor in the forecast with temperatures a few degrees warmer than the seasonal norms for mid August expected. Rainfall coverage looks isolated Monday and Tuesday, with highs near 94 degrees each afternoon.

TROPICAL UPDATE

A tropical wave off western Africa that was showing signs of organization yesterday has been having trouble keeping it's momentum. As of now the feature remains just a collection of showers and thunderstorms. With pockets of relatively drier air over the Atlantic to contest with it appears very unlikely this wave will be able to amount to much in the coming days. Return to index of stories...
