If you're traveling during the holidays, one of the first decisions is what to do with your pet.  You can take it with you, board it, or have someone come to your home to care for it.  Once you decide what's best for you and your best friend, you can relax knowing both of you will have a good holiday.


Authorities are trying to take care of the most vulnerable citizens as temperatures soar across Alabama.

Temperatures are predicted to reach 100 degrees and hotter across much of central and north Alabama on Thursday, and the National Weather Service says that's only the start of a heat wave that will last into the weekend.

In Birmingham, police say they're beginning ``Operation Welfare Check.'' Officers will check on elderly and sick people at the request of relatives and friends to see who needs help.
