Mills father claims his son is bipolar and never meant the child hard. The PCSO said they are unaware of any disorder and Mills will face charged of luring and enticing and two counts of simple battery on another incident.

 

 

Colorado State University has released their preliminary hurricane forecast. It calls for a busy season with 14 named storms, seven reaching hurricane status and three of those becoming major hurricanes. It also raises the chance of one major hurricane making landfall to 63%, up from last year’s 52%. The list of names for the 2018 hurricane season are here.

 

 

With the start of start of hurricane season less than two months away Florida state officials are asking residents who do not live in evacuation zones to think twice about leaving when a storm is approaching.  They want to make sure resources are available for people who really need them. Their message is to “know your zone, know your home.”
