Good afternoon! 

Today is Thursday, February 9, 2012

WAVE 3's Maira Ansari was on the scene today when a 132-year-old church in Santa Claus, IN was moved a half-mile to a new location. Maira will explain why the church was moved and show you how crews made it happen.  You'll also get a look at another big building in Santa Claus that will soon be on the move, as well.

We've just learned that the White House may be working toward a compromise on a controversial policy that would require church–affiliated employers to cover birth control. The Catholic Church has slammed the new rule as an attack on religious freedom.  Watch my interview with Louisville Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, which aired last night at 11, for his reaction to the original plan, and join us for the latest developments on this story tonight on WAVE 3 News at 5.

If you didn't get to see Dawne Gee's Pass the Cash segment last night on WAVE 3 News at 5:30, you missed a good one. Dawne and a WAVE 3 viewer came to the aid of a family facing financial hardship because of chronic health problems. You can watch the emotional story at if you missed it on TV.

You probably know that Dawne finds a great deal of fulfillment helping others. That's why she spearheaded a huge food drive called "Pass, Punt, Kick Hunger." Click on this link to find out what you can do to help -- even from the comfort of your home.

And tonight on WAVE 3 News at 11, reporter Matt McCutcheon is working for you, finding out whether the Sherman Minton Bridge might reopen earlier than scheduled and what the next major obstacle for Kentuckiana drivers will be.

Thanks for watching WAVE 3! We're glad you're a part of the WAVE 3 family. I invite you to join us tonight for WAVE 3 News at 5, 5:30, 6, 7, 7:30 and 11.

Anchor, WAVE 3 News at 5:30, 6, 7 and 11
