Good afternoon from the desk of Janet Hall.  Here are the stories we're working on for WBRC FOX6 News this evening.

Buddy system for UAB students

After recent muggings on or near the UAB campus, many students are using a new app to stay in touch with friends. The app alerts buddies when you fail to arrive at a place you were planning to go. We'll show you how it works at 5.

Register your drone

The FAA came out today with new regulations concerning drones. If you have a recreational drone you must register it with the FAA.  If you're giving a drone to someone for Christmas be sure you know about these new rules. We'll have full details at 6.

Lost ring from 1939

A woman found a class ring from the old Shades Cahaba High School in her backyard.  It's from the class of 1939. Now she's asking your help to track down the rightful owner. We'll have that story at 6 p.m.

Those stories and more beginning at 5 p.m. on WBRC FOX6 News.
