NJN/am for Tuesday, February 25

It's Tuesday...

Weather: Snow? AGAIN? Yes, but for a very short time and it won't amount to anything. Today we'll have a 50 percent chance of rain with highs in the middle 50s. The precipitation may briefly change to a wintry mix during the overnight hours, as the lows drop to around freezing. The precip clears out tomorrow morning, with highs Wednesday struggling to reach 40.

Adamsville man found safe. A young special-needs man named Dennis Brantly Branham is headed back home, after police and his parents tracked him down to a shelter in Nashville. Police say Branham had left his home and hitched a ride to the Music City to pursue a songwriting career there. His parents found him at the shelter Monday.

Sports: Easy opener. Locust Fork had no problem with visiting Appalachian in its softball season opener Monday, as the Hornets won 16-0 in 2½ innings. Madison Cater, Jamie Gail Hudson and Anna Hood each batted in three runs. Weather permitting, the Hornets will travel to Pinson Valley this afternoon. Baseball: Corner put up six runs in the third inning, as they blew by homestanding Curry 12-3 on Monday. Dillon McCaleb drove in two runs with a sharp single to shortstop in that inning and sent home another run on a ground-out in the sixth. The Jackets are scheduled to play at Hueytown this afternoon, if the rain holds off.
