"We received some information, and from there Agent Jim Phillips began an investigation," said Task Force Director Darrell Collins. "The investigation ultimately led to seizing about 80 plants that BEATING THE HEAT were being grown on property off Highway 35 on Lookout Mountain."

New license annex OK'd in Rainsville � DeKalb will soon have two driver's license offices By Kelly Townsend [email protected] Driver's licenses will soon be renewed in Rainsville as well as Fort Payne. The DeKalb County Commission unanimously approved Tuesday to hire an employee to run a new driver's license machine at the Rainsville Annex. "On Aug. 27, we will put someone to work," Probate Judge Ronnie Osborn said. "We will take a week to train them and the machine will be in place and ready to go as soon as the DeKalb County Commission issues the order." President Sid Holcomb said the machine will cost $19,068 and Rainsville, through the help of Sen. Lowell Barron, gave $25,000 for the machine. DeKalb County Administrator Matt Sharp said Rainsville cut the city a check for $25,000 to cover other operation costs, such as $500 for installation and $600 per month for the phone line. "Sen.

MEMBER FDIC FARMERS WIRELESS 261 2D Gaull Axe, Ft. Payne  516.2100 1-M0497-411O By Greg Purvis [email protected] As DeKalb County suffers through record-breaking summer temperatures, it's important to remember that pets aren't quite as proficient at staying cool as people. For people, staying cool during an Alabama August heat wave can be as simple as turning down the air conditioner and staying out of the sun. But for animals - especially pets that spend a lot of their time outdoors - keeping cool is serious business. As the heat index soars to 110 degrees or more, keeping cool can be a matter of life or death. "When our pets get too hot, their systems start to shut down," said Meredith � See Animals, 3 Photo courtesy Tigers for Tomorrow Katie, a resident tiger at Tigers for Tomorrow, pounces on a chicken-filled ice pop recently.
