ABILENE, Texas (CNN/KTAB) - Forget rain or sleet or gloom of night. One mail carrier can add falcons to his motto.
For the past two weeks, Ron Eudy has had to step into a "battlefield," a block along his mail delivery route where a group of falcons have marked him as a predator.
"It's a thump I promise you and luckily it hits me in the head and it's a bang, it ain't just a little thump," said Eudy.
Neighbors along the block have become his allies.
"I said look out Ronnie here he comes again and bam, you could hear him hit the top of his hat," said Marvin Smith.
The birds don't seem to bother anyone else, just Eudy and only when he wears a specific white helmet. Now he wears a blue hat and they don't come after him anymore.
The new owner of a closed power plant along Lake Michigan says he's looking to transform the site by building a marina and residences with lakefront views.
While not officially ruled a homicide yet, the apparent fatal shooting of a man Tuesday afternoon in Fort Wayne would tie the record for homicides in a year in Allen County at 44, matching the total in 1997.
Police officials in Hamilton County said Wednesday morning a missing woman had been located.
