FOX San Antonio - FOLLOW UP STORIES
A local chimpanzee once thought to be half-human half-ape has died. Oliver died Saturday morning at the age of 55. His caretakers at Primarily Primates on the San Antonio's northwest side say they found him peacefully curled up in his favorite hammock. Oliver became famous in the 1970's when it was thought he had an extra chromosome that made him look and act more human. Oliver was exploited for nearly 30 years before scientists finally determined he was in fact just an ape.

CLEBURNE, Texas (AP) -- School is expected to resume Monday in a North Texas community where a tornado damaged homes and cut power.
Campuses in the Cleburne school district, about 25 miles south of Fort Worth, were closed Thursday and Friday after a tornado Wednesday night caused electrical outages and dangerous road conditions.
Dallas-based Oncor (ON'-kor) said Friday afternoon that about 600 customers in Cleburne were still without power, down from about 4,000 in the area at the height of the outage.
The National Weather Service has rated the tornado that hit Cleburne as an EF-3. Winds were estimated at 135 mph to 165 mph. No deaths or serious injuries were reported in Cleburne.
Cleburne is 25 miles southeast of Granbury, where a tornado Wednesday night killed six people.
