The Wrap: This Week in Review
- This weekend In-State only pheasant hunting season begins. With the number of hunting accidents on the rise, be extra careful out there. So, clean those guns and claim a wooded area or field. It’s go time, hunters. Who’s more anxious…you or your hunting dog?
- A skydiver’s dangerous bid to break the sound barrier was a sonic bust Tuesday, blown away by gusting winds. Extreme athlete Felix Baumgartner will live to dive another day after his 23-mile free fall into the New Mexico desert was scratched over unsafe gusts of 20 mph. Daredevil Baumgartner, 43, appeared disappointed as he shook his head and exited the capsule that he hoped to ride 120,000 feet into the stratosphere for this jump.
- A Harrisburg family is safe after a fire damaged their home Wednesday night. Firefighters arrived at the scene around 2:30am and found flames coming from the roof of the garage. Harrisburg Fire Chief Bill Fink said the family is safe and the pets were rescued.
- Rain. No, not a typo or an error. Rain entering the picture for Saturday before clearing for Sunday and mild temperatures to begin next week. Take a look at the radar on the KIKN 100.5 First Alert Weather. (We haven’t seen that green color on the radar in a while)
