NICE CHANGES - 07/13/14

It's pretty unusual to see a cold front make it down to middle TN and southern KY this time of year.  But this week we are going to be lucky.  Theo only hiccup is that we are going to have to go through some rough storms first.  Now,  the slower this front moves the better this may work out for us.  That means instead of getting plenty of powerful storms we'll get plenty of rain.  I believe that since we haven't had a ton of rain lately we will be able to handle what will come our way.  Now once this front passes by on Monday afternoon temperatures will drop by some 10 degrees.  For some of us on the plateau highs may not even make it to 80.  All i can say is that enjoy it while you can because this treat won't last long.  Warmer air returns by the weekend.

DRUNKEN BANK ROBBER

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- If you're planning to knock over a bank, it's probably best not to knock down a few first. That's what a man in Tallahassee has found out the hard way. Authorities say an intoxicated Stanley Geddie walked into the Capital City Bank and demanded $100,000 from a manager -- claiming he had a handgun and plastic explosives. When police arrived, they found the man "very intoxicated and spaced out" in the manager's office. They also found a cab driver who said he brought Geddie to the bank -- and complained he got stiffed on his $25.50 fare. At least the would-be robber decided not to drive to the bank heist. The Tallahassee Democrat reports Geddie is charged with robbery, petty theft and resisting an officer. He's also being held on two probation violations.

BASEBALL GIVEAWAY

UNDATED (AP) -- Spring training -- a time for baseball teams and their fans to be optimistic. But the Houston Astros are balking over a planned promotion by one of its minor league affiliates. The Fresno Grizzlies of the Triple-A Pacific Coast League feel so confident the 'Stros will win a title soon, they planned to hand out replica 2017 World Series rings as a promotional giveaway this summer. But once the big league club heard about the pitch, they asked the Triple-A team to bench it. Grizzlies officials say they don't want any issues with its parent club.

POLICE HORSE ON THE LAM

CLEVELAND (AP) -- You've heard about the occasional rogue police officer. But a rogue police horse? A spokesman for the Cleveland police department says a horse with the department's mounted unit was tied up at a cemetery -- but got loose and started roaming the downtown area. Police finally caught up with Jack and got him back where he belonged. Police say there were no reports of injuries or property damage. Officers say Jack stayed on the street during his escape -- but didn't stop at red lights.

GOATS CAPTURED

SEATTLE (AP) -- You've probably heard the phrase: "getting someone's goat." In this case, police in Seattle got someone's goat -- times 10. A herd of 10 goats got free from a yard in the Beacon Hill neighborhood -- and began chasing a group of children. That led police on a chase of their own -- after the creatures. The police website says officers were able to wrangle the goats into a pen. Animal control officers were called to reach the goats' owner.
