A line of storms brings much needed rain to parched parts of the state....

Monday - June 21, 2011

Defense attorneys continue to be upbeat about the way the state house corruption trial is progressing.  Today, the third state lawmaker who cooperated with the FBI took the stand.  Ben Lewis was a member of the Alabama House of Representatives before being appointed as a district judge in Dothan.  We'll recap the day's testimony from the Federal Court House.

Away from the trial, a lawyer for defendant Milton McGregor was visibly upset over the timing of a Court of the Judiciary's release of a complaint against a former judge...specifically the fact that McGregor was mentioned in one of the counts involving a custody hearing involving McGregor's daughter and her ex-husband.  We'll listen as attorney Joe Espy talks about whoever's behind the allegations.

Next time you pick up your cleaning supplies or other items at a Montgomery Dollar General store...you can grab a six-pack of beer or a bottle of wine.  Over the objections of several residents who feared an increase in loitering and crime in their neighborhoods, the City Council approved the alcohol sales for six of the Dollar General locations - with five other stores' requests pending.

And, yep...it rained in Montgomery tonight...a good old summer-time storm that was just what the doctor ordered for the parched parts of our viewing area.  Rich Thomas lets us know if the storms are out of here for the the night.

Hope you'll join us for these stories and more...shortly.

Take care,

Bob H.
