We're one day away from the holiday weekend!

I hope you'll join Dawne Gee and me for WAVE 3 News at 5 as we get you ready … We'll try to work on WAVE 3 Chief Meteorologist Kevin Harned on that very-hot forecast.

We also have WAVE 3's Jaimie Weiss trying to untangle the web around the murder case of Lloyd Hammond.  He was convicted of killing three people but the Kentucky Supreme Court overturned that today.  Jaimie's looking into what's next.

A warning for parents about a product a number of you probably have in your home.  Doctors say kids are being rushed to the hospital because they think it's candy.

WAVE 3's Lori Lyle is Stretching Your Dollar as you try to figure out what to do with your kids when they get out of school for summer vacation.  She'll have some budget-friendly ideas.

And Dawne has a story that will bring a tear to your eye and joy to your heart … a critically ill child meets the American heroes he looks up to.
