Good evening, one and all. Here's what we're working on for our ten p.m. newscast.
We're looking at some
promising economic news. Alabama's jobs picture is
improving. The state's unemployment rate is now down to 6%,
compared to over 7% nationwide. In Huntsville it's less than 5%. An economics expert tells Sarah Navoy that anyone now looking for a job is more likely to find one, sooner, than
he would have as recently as six months ago. We'll hear some more of that
analysis and get a look at what it's really like out there from someone in the
middle of that job hunt.
A woman missing since last
month has now turned up dead in Albertville. Jennifer Lynn Hinote hadn't
been seen since December. Her body was found yesterday
off Highway 431. So far investigators are calling this only a "death
investigation" and not a "homicide" yet.
We're also looking at a big
development in the aftermath of the UAH shooting rampage. A judge has now thrown out a
lawsuit against UAH's former provost Vistasp Karbhari. He was being sued by
relatives of victims of the 2010 shootings in which then-professor Amy Bishop
shot six of her colleagues, killing three. They claimed that senior
school administrators knew Bishop was dangerous and didn't do enough to protect
the victims. Today the judge summarily
dismissed the case against Karbhari.
We'll be following those
stories and a lot more on WAFF 48 News at Ten.
