Five Things You Need To Know Today, July 26

What happened to St. Charles Church on July 26 nine years ago?

Here are five things you need to know today:


1) We love you, Mother Nature

Well, Mother Nature sure has been good to us. And we just want her to know that we love her! According to the National Weather Service, we will enjoy sunny skies and a high of temperature of 84 degrees.


2) St. Charles rocked by arson

It was nine years ago today that the was devastated when an arson fire was set in the Main Street church. It was the second arson fire within a year at the church, which left parishioners shocked and confused. The July 26 fire started when someone set a drop cloth aflame after stuffing it inside a piano.

5) You can't always get what you want...

But sometimes, you get what you need. Right? On this day in 1943, musician Mick Jagger was born. Best known as the frontman of the Rolling Stones, Jagger has also acted and studied economics. Rocking since the 1960s, Jagger and the Stones are still going strong today. What's your favorite Stones song? We might have to go with Gimme Shelter.
