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.

Vetoing Arizona's Religious Freedom Bill

Updated: Thursday, February 27 2014, 11:10 AM CST

Deciding to veto. The pressure on Arizona Governor Jan Brewer to make a dicision on a controversial religious freedom bill is over.

Brewer spent much of her time behind closed doors today, contemplating her decision, and meeting with representatives on both sides of the issue.

With her state and the nation eagerly awaiting her choice, Governor Jan Brewer held a press conference to announce her decision.

"Senate Bill 1062 does not address a specific or present concern related to religious liberty in Arizona. I have not heard of one example in Arizona where a business owner's religious liberty has been violated. The bill is broadly worded and could result in unintended and negative consequences. After weighing all of the arguments, I have vetoed Senate Bill 1062 moments ago."

The Governor of Arizona went on the encourage Arizona residents and all Americans to let the ugliness of the debate over the controversial senate bill turn into a renewed search for greater respect and understanding.
