Good morning, everyone, it's 7:45am. It's a somewhat sunny and cloudy morning out there, about 70 degrees. It's going to be about 80 today, with some showers this morning but the sun coming out in the afternoon. Anyway, I'm hoping there's not craziness in the neighborhood like there was last night. On the precaution side of things, I'll be monitoring the St. Hyacinth's carnival from 9:30pm to midnight in this color unless conditions warrant for an earlier monitoring time. Lastly, the only thing I have this week is a hearing Downtown on Tuesday morning regarding Danny's Liquors. Hope that goes well. On that note, here's crime for today.
