Good Evening, I'm Barbara Gauthier in the WTVM Newsroom. Here's a look at some of the stories we're working on for News Leader 9 at 11.
Coroner Contest in Muscogee County Up in Air
It's the race that really wasn't! Current Muscogee Coroner Bill Thrower's name appeared on the primary ballot Tuesday, even though he had been disqualified before the election. When the votes were counted Thrower had won the majority. So what does that mean for the coroner's contest and where does that leave Democratic candidate Buddy Bryan - whose name was also on the ballot? We'll answer those questions and let you know what's next for the contest.

We'll also hear from two newly elected Muscogee County School Board members who managed to beat out the incumbents. What are their plans for the school district?

We'll show you what happened at local restaurants.
