Two Congresswomen about to share Montgomery voters

Monday - September 19, 2011

Thanks for making us part of your prime time viewing.  Tonight at 10, we'll talk about an unlikely appearance by two Alabama Congresswomen who are on opposite sides of virtually every issue.  But soon Terry Sewell and Martha Roby will share representation of Montgomery.  We'll have more on where they spoke and what they said at 10.

Alabama's tough immigration law may have a direct impact on farmers in our area.  They're finding it more difficult to hire laborers to gather crops and other jobs.  Tonight we'll explore the problem and how much it may cost farmers in the long run.

A state senator from southwest Alabama's business is being investigated.  Fairhope city officials were served with warrants and a grand jury has requested city records over a contract awarded to Sen. Tripp Pitman's business in Baldwin County.  The contract was for clean up work after the gulf oil spill.

A new Facebook page has some parents a little upset these days.  It's called "Smash or Pass." Kids can express their opinion about classmates and others.  We'll sample parental reaction to the pages.

Plus, we'll check in with College and Career Night - an annual event of the Junior League of Montgomery that allows students and parents time to weigh their college options - especially when it comes to tuition costs and scholarships. 

And, Rich Thomas talks about increasing rain chances early in the 7-day forecast.

Stay up and watch!  We'd appreciate it.

Take care,

Bob H.
