Panhandle angler drowns in Hebgen Lake

WEST YELLOWSTONE, Mont. (AP) - A Texas Panhandle fisherman has drowned in Montana's Hebgen Lake, near West Yellowstone.

A deputy Gallatin County coroner says the body of 70-year-old Robert Reed was found Sunday morning. Deputy Coroner Ken Davis says Reed apparently drowned while pulling his raft to shore in a thunderstorm.

Reed was from Amarillo, Texas, and had been visiting family in West Yellowstone. He'd been reported missing Saturday night.

Search teams from Madison and Gallatin counties found his vehicle, raft and dog, shortly after the search began. But Gallatin County Sheriff Jim Cashell says the body wasnt found until Sunday morning, when a helicopter was called to assist in the search.

Gallatin County Coroner Duncan MacNab says Reed was found in 8 feet of water.

McNab says Reed had emphysema, and may not have had the ability to survive very long in the water.

    Drivers in downtown Amarillo could soon be dealing with fewer one-way streets. It all has to do with the parking garages going up on Buchanan Street. Cars will need to exit right and left on 7th and 8th Avenues, and right now it's against city ordinance to turn left out of any parking garage in the city. That will cause some problems when people try to exit the new parking garage onto, well, any street surrounding it. The city believes the solution to this problem, along with gett...
