New City Council member elected in Montgomery

Tuesday - April 19, 2001

Election day in Montgomery - for a four-month term in office.  That's right.  The winner of tonight's special runoff election serves only through August.  You see, it's the unexpired term of former Montgomery City Councilwoman turned U.S. Congresswoman Martha Roby.  We've got the numbers and the reaction from the two combatants.

A sad anniversary to remember tomorrow.  One year ago the Deep Horizon oil rig blue up in the Gulf of Mexico killing 11 men and starting the country's worst ecological disaster.  We're in Gulf Shores for a report on the cleanup and the costs to tourism and the gulf coast's economy.

Prattville had to go back to the bank - to borrow more money - to make a payment on money it's already borrowed.  We'll explain the process and what's next for the city that's working hard to work out it's financial situation.

And, we have reaction tonight from the developers of a large landfill in Conecuh County.  The project has lots of locals upset - to the point of hiring a lawyer to sue.  The developers say they're bringing jobs, a big payroll and lots of new taxes to the county.

Plus we have the forecast for tomorrow...which includes some rain chances...leading up to a beautiful Easter weekend.  And that's a good thing.

Hope you'll join Val, Rich, Jeff and me in less than a half hour after this note hit your email box!

Take care,

Bob H.
