A federal appeals court panel drops two convictions against former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman and ex-Healthsouth CEO Richard Scrushy...and ordered a new sentencing for the pair. Siegelman's been out awaiting appeal since the spring of 2008. Scrushy's been serving time in a federal facility since 2007.
All bets are off for live dog racing at Victoryland in Shorter. Word today from the track's owner that only simulcast races will be available at the once-booming dog track and bingo casino. We'll have a live report.
And, if you'd like to do something to help the tornado victims in our state...you just need to watch a country music benefit concert featuring Alabama's own Hank Williams, Jr and a host ofNashville country stars. You can see a rebroadcast of their shindig on WSFA 12.2 Friday night.
Plus, Rich says there are some showers in our future...but no gully-washers! Maybe just some much needed soaking rain instead.
Look for you at 6 and 10!
