Locals To Be Arrested For Charity

Is there a warrant out for your arrest?
In this case, it would be a good thing since it is all part of a Jail and Bail fund raiser for the 2016 Relay For Life of Jefferson County. 
Set for Friday, Feb. 19 at Stagecoach Mall, 20 plus community members will be picked up by local law enforcement volunteers for incarceration until each individual reaches his or her bail amount.
“Our relay team was looking for a fun way to bring in some donations and I thought we might give this a try. I know no one in the community has done anything like this for some time, so it should generate a lot of awareness for the Relay For Life locally,” Diane Schutt, team captain and organizer of the event said.

The forecasted snowfall for Jefferson and Saline counties is 8" to 12". No matter what the snow total will be the winds are going to make travel impossible Monday night through Wednesday morning. Plows might not get out till Wednesday morning.

At this time power outages don't seem to be a problem during this event. But there could be some.
