Two notable passings today....

Friday - March 25, 2011

Hope your night is going well.  Enjoy this mild night because we'll all be dodging raindrops tomorrow.  Not an all-day event....but some of the showers might be thundery.

Our lead stories tonight at 10 deal with the passing of a couple of notable men in our city.  Long time radio talk show host Don Markwell died late this afternoon.  He'd been seriously sick for some time.  And, a man who was bigger than life around the Cleveland Avenue YMCA, Willie Jones also died today.  We'll talk about their careers and contributions to our community.

We'll update our story from 5 and 6 on the minister who's been charged with sexual torture and child abuse. 

We're working on a new story from Auburn.  There are a couple of developments in the tree-poisoning case we thought you'd like to know about.

Need an RV?  Just like to look at those big coaches...or maybe a more affordable pull-behind?  They're all here at the convention center through Sunday.  We'll show you what's on display.

Plus, Relay for Life kicked off tonight. We'll share the excitement.

And, we'll look at the radar - the only LIVE radar in town - for any stray showers out there.

Please make us a part of your late night...immediately after Dateline.

Bob H.
