Good afternoon from the desk of Janet Hall.  Here are the stories we’re working on for FOX6 News this evening.
 
School Superintendent says “NO”
Should Alabama lawmakers combine the Education Budget with the General Fund Budget?  “NO." That’s the response from Jefferson County School Superintendent Craig Pouncey. We’ll talk to him about why he thinks it’s such a bad idea at 5 p.m.
 
Tribal Gamble
The Poarch Creek Band of Indians claims they have the solution for Alabama’s financial problems. They’re offering $250 million to lock up exclusive gaming rights in the state. We’ll take a look at the pros and cons of their proposal at 5 p.m.
 
Play Ball! Hold the peanuts.
Buy me some ---- and cracker jacks. Sorry, no peanuts. We’ll explain why Barons Baseball will have no peanuts in the ballpark next Tuesday. Here’s a hint. It’s sponsored by the Alabama Allergy & Asthma Center.
 
Those stories and more beginning at 5 p.m. on FOX6 News.
