PIKE ROAD VOTES TO RAISE TAXES & BUILD SCHOOL SYSTEM...

Tuesday - October 11, 2011

Hello from the Newsroom.

A lot of celebrating tonight in Pike Road.  Voters there approved a property tax hike to create and fund a city school system.  We'll sample reaction to the vote of confidence for the city's leadership.

Montgomery School Board members voted tonight to allow a consultant to start discussions for the sale of one or more empty school buildings.

A spokesperson for the school system says an 18 year old Lee High School student will likely face expulsion after being caught with a starter's pistol on campus.  Another student was arrested for pot possession, too, after the school went on lockdown this morning.

And, we'll introduce you to a woman who does a lot more than just wait tables at a Montgomery restaurant.  She's this week's Cash For Kindness recipient.

Look for these stories and a lot more at 10!

See you on the set!

Bob H.
