Congratulations. You've made it past hump day and we're on the downhill side headed toward the weekend.
At the State House corruption trial, another of the prosecutors' key witnesses spent another day being hounded by defense attorneys. Jarrod Massey, who's already pleaded guilty, talked about which state lawmakers was being offered bribes...and by whom. And, he talked about how many votes were locked in "for" pro-gambling legislation in the state Senate. We're live at the Federal Courthouse for the story at 5 and 6.
Police in St. Clair County got more than they bargained for when they found a cache of explosives in an abandoned vehicle parked on the side of the road near I-20. It was loaded with what appeared to be explosive devices. At 5, we'll tell you what happened next!
In the midst of all this incredibly hot weather, an innovative company in Bullock County has come up with a way to help folks keep their cool. It's simple - but appears to get the job done. See if for yourself at 5.
And, in Montgomery the folks in a couple of neighborhoods have found themselves victims of a series of auto break-in's. We'll ride along with police officers as they close in on the crooks responsible.
Hope you'll join us for these stories...and highlights of today's All Star Sports Week competition. Sports Director Jeff Shearer anchors tonight's sports from the Acadome at Alabama State University the basketball venue for the week.
