Good Evening, I'm Barbara Gauthier in the WTVM Newsroom. We hope you'll join us tonight for Newsleader 9 at 11. Here's a look at some of the stories we're working on for the newscast.
It's a fear that's plaguing the military community and the families that depend on income from Fort Benning. Now we're seeing what may be the first casualties of decreased government spending. Civilian contractors and employees are losing their jobs. Newsleader 9's Dante Renzulli spoke to workers on post who are seeing the effects firsthand.
Plus, a task force is being assembled and now the state is getting involved in trying to catch a serial arsonist in Columbus. This comes as a reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest. We've got the latest.
Also, a Lanett woman is behind bars tonight after admitting to deceiving perspective adoptive parents. Newsleader 9's Annie Hubbell is on this story and she'll tell you what the woman did.
And we'll take you to a birthday celebration like no other tonight - as a Columbus woman celebrates a century of living.
