Governor Bentley's address to the state -

Tuesday - May 3, 2011

6 days after the tornadoes hit -

Governor Robert Bentley needs to say something to the entire state of Alabama. You can hear it, here on WSFA 12 News tonight at 6 p.m.  The governor will detail the state's plan to help the thousands of Alabamians who are still suffering after the worst tornado outbreak in U.S. history. 

Because of Dr. Bentley's extended remarks - which start about 6:01 tonight - we are expanding our newscast to a full hour.  There are so many stories to tell.  So many people to help!

Also tonight...

The local school board has selected a site for the new eastside high school.  I can tell you adding buses and cars to get 700 or so kids, teachers and support staff to this location could really congest an already busy, busy stretch of highway.  Find out more starting during the news at 5.

And, you won't have to run your air conditioner tonight.  Rich says the front that passed through the state bringing some heavy rain and gusty winds will also pull the rug out from under our nighttime temperatures.  How low will it go? Find out in each of our nightly newscasts.

Val and Mark kick things off about a half hour after this hits your email box. I'll join you at 6 with the governor's address and more storm stories. Until then - pray for the tornado victims and find a way to help.  No effort it too small.

Bob H.
