Heat Advisory for Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana

IL, TN, IN, KT (AP) -- A heat advisory remains in effect until 7:00pm CDT Saturday.
Temperatures will continue their heat up through the 90s each afternoon over the next several afternoons as high pressure aloft builds into and across the nation's midsection.
These temperatures will combine with rather muggy conditions to produce afternoon heat index values from 100 to 105 several days in a row. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside.
When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening.
Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.
Precautionary/preparedness actions: A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors. Make sure outside pets have plenty of water.

Administrator Moved To Teaching Position Due To Residency Policy

Updated: Monday, June 9 2014, 10:34 AM CDT
SPRINGFIELD -- An administrator within the Springfield public school district is being moved to a teaching position for the next year because they live outside the district's boundaries.

Last year, District 186 approved a change to their residency requirement that affected school administrators requiring them to show proof of address.

The district has actually had a residency policy on the the books since 1983, but board president, Mike Zimmer, says it's been loosely enforced.

"I think that if you are an administrator in a building, you should expect that your children would go to the school in Springfield," Zimmer said. "I know when I was an administrator in the district, your whole family gets involved then."

Zimmer wouldn't identify the name of the administrator in question, citing personal issues.

He adds that the board isn't outing any one employee for the residency rule. He said living within the district is a policy and the board is choosing to enforce it.Administrator Moved To Teaching Position Due To Residency Policy
