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.

Jacksonville's Teens Get Schooled at Police Work

Updated: Tuesday, June 10 2014, 03:33 PM CDT

JACKSONVILLE -- 15 teens got a first hand glimpse into the life of a police officer today.

The Jacksonville Police Department hosted its first annual "Teen Police Academy." The kids learned about handling a crime scene, shooting firearms, and what goes on in an officer's daily routine.

Patrolman Tino Vasquez thinks it's very valuable lesson. "We can take care of any misconceptions that might be out there, give them a better understanding what we do, especially those who are considering law enforcement as a career."

Organizers say they also spoke with today's participants so police would better understand the youth in the community and hear any concerns they might have.
