Greetings from the desk of Jonathan Hardison! I hope you're having a nice evening. Here are some of the stories we're working on for tonight.

How deep do the cuts go?

Could our state really be in such bad budget shape we would cut 75 percent of the narcotics units on the streets and slash the number of state troopers on the roads to dangerous levels? Our Christy Hutchings is well-sourced in the law enforcement community and she's hearing some serious worry from a lot of corners. Tonight on FOX6 News at 9 she's talking to state troopers about their concerns for not only their jobs, but your safety.

Animal cruelty

"It's a dog graveyard," is how neighbors in Bibb County are describing the property where several malnourished dogs and cats were found yesterday. It's a story we broke for you on our WBRC app and tonight on FOX6 News at 10 we're following up with those neighbors on why they feel betrayed by the woman who's now accused of multiple counts of animal cruelty at a place where at least 15 animals had to be euthanized.

Those stories and more beginning at 9 on FOX6 News. I hope you'll watch us on air, online at or in the WBRC News app by clicking "Live Newscasts."
