Possible Post Office Closings; Montgomery Budgets

Tuesday

July 26, 2011

 

GOOD MORNING!

WE SHOULD LEARN LATER TODAY IF SOME POST OFFICES IN RURAL ALABAMA WILL BE FORCED TO SHUT DOWN. ABOUT 36-HUNDRED POST OFFICES ARE UNDER REVIEW, AS THE POSTAL SERVICE LOOKS FOR WAYS TO SAVE MONEY. AND TODAY POSTMASTER GENERAL PATRICK DONAHOE WILL RELEASE THE LIST OF THOSE BEING STUDIED FOR POSSIBLE CLOSURE.

ALABAMA'S DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE LAWS... ARE ABOUT TO GET A WHOLE LOT TOUGHER. THANKS TO A BILL PASSED DURING THIS YEAR'S LEGISLATIVE SESSION -- FIRST TIME OFFENDERS COULD FACE PENALTIES OF UP TO A YEAR IN JAIL OR HAVING THEIR LICENSE SUSPENDED LONGER.

DOLLARS AND CENTS AT THE FOREFRONT OF CONVERSATIONS IN MONTGOMERY THIS WEEK AS THE CITY HOLDS BUDGET MEETINGS FOR THE 2012 FISCAL YEAR. THE PUBLIC SAFETY DEPARTMENT IS IN THE HOT SEAT TODAY.

THOSE STORIES, PLUS YOUR LATEST DOPPLER 12 STORMVISION FORECAST TO START YOUR DAY, STARIGHT AHEAD ON TODAY IN ALABAMA, 5-7AM ON WSFA 12 NEWS.

SEE YOU SOON!

TONYA TERRY
