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.

First Transgender Priest Preaches at National Cathedral

Updated: Tuesday, June 24 2014, 11:36 AM CDT

HISTORIC SERMON --

An openly transgender Episcopal priest preached for the first time at the Washington National Cathedral.

The Rev. Dr. Cameron Partridge, the Episcopal Chaplain at Boston University, was a guest preacher on Sunday. He became the first openly transgender priest to preach from Canterbury Pulpit at the cathedral.

The Right Rev. Gene Robinson, the first openly gay Episcopal bishop, presided at the service as part of the cathedral's celebration of LGBT pride month.

The service included readings and prayers from members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

The Very Rev. Gary Hall, Dean of the cathedral, says he hopes Partridge's appearance "will send a symbolic message in support of greater equality for the transgender community."
