Bags of ice shipped in for storm victims....

Tuesday - May10, 2011

Why are thousands of bags of ice - intended for storm victims - melting away at a staging area in Montgomery.  The results of WSFA 12 News Reporter Samuel King's investigation...our lead story at 10!

A man who appeared to be helping after the tornado in Elmore County...now charged with theft.

Once folks from surrounding states flocked to Victoryland - first to bet on the dogs - later for the electronic bingo.  Then the bingo machines went away under state threats of confiscation - and now, the owner has ended live greyhound racing...only the televised simulcast races remain.

Two down - five to go.  Don Siegelman and Richard Scrushy saw their federal convictions reduced today.  And, they get a new sentence out of that appeals court decision.  We'll have the specifics coming up.

And, the man in charge of the National Weather Service Office in Birmingham - talks about how they make the decision to pull the trigger on critical warnings for potentially severe weather.  And, he admits they don't always get it right.

Join us for these stories - high school sports highlights - and more...tonight.

See you on the set!
