Alfred Dowe has served on city
council for six years, and had two
years remaining on his term, but in a
letter to Mayor Nelson Harris, Dowe
said he was resigning, effective
immediately.


Dowe wrote, "it has been my
extreme pleasure serving the community
that I love and it is in that spirit,
given the recent events, that I choose
not to be a distraction to the progress
of the city."


Harris would not offer specifics
about the new information, but
confirmed that it involved cases of
double billing, in which Dowe sought
reimbursement from the state and the
city for the same expense.

CK/WEATHERBUG


< Webb in the SkyTracker7 Forecast CK/SKYTRACKER Center. An upper level disturbance
will quickly race through the area this
afternoon through this evening. As a CK/WEATHERPRO result, morning sunshine will give-way
to increasing clouds and a few rain or
snow showers. Some areas could possibly
get a light coating of snow from
3:00p.m. through 9:00p.m. Highs are
forecast in the low to mid 40s with
light and variable wind.


Any precipitation ends Sunday night
with clearing skies as high pressure
returns. Winds will be light and
temperatures will be chilly. Lows near
30.


Monday looks like the "pick of the
week" with mostly sunny skies (high
level clouds develop during the
afternoon) and highs in the mid and
upper 50s. Clouds once again return
Monday night, and as southwest winds
increase, temperatures will stay mild


in the lower 40s.


A cold front crosses the area Tuesday
with a 60% chance of showers. Highs are
forecast in the low and mid 50s.


Expect mostly cloudy conditions
Wednesday with snow showers in our
western mountains. The Greenbrier
Valley of West Virginia may get several
inches of fresh snow Wednesday.
Temperatures will be sharply cooler in
the 30s for most hometowns.


Thursday looks partly sunny and cool
(highs near 40). Friday calls for
mostly cloudy skies with afternoon
highs in the lower 50s.


Next weekend: Right now, the first
weekend of March calls for morning
showers on Saturday, then partly sunny
for the rest of the weekend. Highs near
50. Lows in the mid 30s.


SUNDAY: Increasing clouds. A few
rain/show showers. Cooler. High: 44


SUNDAY NIGHT: Gradual clearing. Low: 32


MONDAY: Sunny and warmer. High: 57


Have a great day! Meteorologist Jay

Community college is recovering after
being hospitalized for bacterial
meningitis. This is a contagious


infection of the fluid surrounding the
brain and spinal cord.


Health officials tell News 7 they
contacted everyone who may have been
exposed and they are getting
appropriate treatment.


There is a vaccine that protects
people from the four most common types
of meningitis.


But students at community colleges,
unlike four-year public instutions,
are not required by law to get the
vaccine before enrolling.

The nationwide beef recall..had the
Second Harvest food bank checking its
own food supply. Turns it didn't have
any of the affected meat.


But the CEO says anytime there is a
food recall the food bank must be on
alert because the organization provides
food to 350 different organization that
feed more than a hundred-thousand
people in our community a month.

council for six years, and had two
years remaining on his term, but in a
letter to Mayor Nelson Harris, Dowe
said he was resigning, effective
immediately.


Dowe wrote, "it has been my
extreme pleasure serving the community
that I love and it is in that spirit,
given the recent events, that I choose
not to be a distraction to the progress


of the city."


Harris would not offer specifics
about the new information, but
confirmed that it involved cases of
double billing, in which Dowe sought
reimbursement from the state and the
city for the same expense.

< Center. An upper level disturbance
will quickly race through the area this CK/SKYTRACKER afternoon through this evening. As a
result, morning sunshine will give-way
to increasing clouds and a few rain or CK/WEATHERPRO snow showers. Some areas could possibly
get a light coating of snow from
3:00p.m. through 9:00p.m. Highs are
forecast in the low to mid 40s with
light and variable wind.


Any precipitation ends Sunday night
with clearing skies as high pressure
returns. Winds will be light and
temperatures will be chilly. Lows near
30.


Monday looks like the "pick of the
week" with mostly sunny skies (high
level clouds develop during the
afternoon) and highs in the mid and
upper 50s. Clouds once again return
Monday night, and as southwest winds
increase, temperatures will stay mild
in the lower 40s.


A cold front crosses the area Tuesday
with a 60% chance of showers. Highs are
forecast in the low and mid 50s.


Expect mostly cloudy conditions


Wednesday with snow showers in our
western mountains. The Greenbrier
Valley of West Virginia may get several
inches of fresh snow Wednesday.
Temperatures will be sharply cooler in
the 30s for most hometowns.


Thursday looks partly sunny and cool
(highs near 40). Friday calls for
mostly cloudy skies with afternoon
highs in the lower 50s.


Next weekend: Right now, the first
weekend of March calls for morning
showers on Saturday, then partly sunny
for the rest of the weekend. Highs near
50. Lows in the mid 30s.


SUNDAY: Increasing clouds. A few
rain/show showers. Cooler. High: 44


SUNDAY NIGHT: Gradual clearing. Low: 32


MONDAY: Sunny and warmer. High: 57
