Good Morning
Today is Friday, July 23

Well - it's not even 5 a.m. and it's already been a busy morning. It's also been very busy for local firefighters that were called out this morning to a huge barn fire between Fruitland and Jackson. Be sure to tune in to The Breakfast Show to see the video and hear what happened.

This morning we also have a new story that should hit home for any pet owners. It involves animals and antifreeze.

Today Laura is in charge of the StormTeam Center - and she's telling me if you're a big fan of the heat and humidity then you're in luck! We're looking to have another absolutely marvelous sweaty day in the Heartland. You've been warned.

And this morning Laura is also taking on the role of wildlife expert (sort-of) and showing us why a local man was just featured on the National Geographic Channel talking about alligator gar fish.

Are you looking for work? Around 6:15 this morning see a story that looks into an industry that's not only got jobs available - there's a national shortage!

There's no shortage of news coming out of the gulf region these days. This morning on The Breakfast Show we'll have live video from the cap on the well. You may ask why you should care today - because Tropical Storm Bonnie is on her way making a b-line for the ships on the surface. We'll have details about what BP is planning to do while the storm passes.

And looking ahead - today Saline County Chief Deputy Todd Fort is scheduled to make his first court appearance to face charges of sexual assault and official misconduct. Look for live coverage of this story beginning on Heartland News at Noon and updates throughout the morning at kfvs12.com

Thanks again for making The Breakfast Show your choice for local morning news.
