Too Much To Miss….So Please Don't!!

I hope you'll join Janelle MacDonald and me for WAVE 3 News at 5!

There are so many wonderful places to go in WAVE Country but with all the traffic headaches in town it is easier to "see" where you want to go than actually get to it!  WAVE 3's Chris McGill prepares you for yet another bump in the road as a new project starts next week that may slow you down and bring traffic to a crawl.

She lost her daughter and two beautiful grandsons all in one night.  The mother of Sade Goldsmith talks to WAVE 3's Scott Adkins about her daughter and her daughter's sons allegedly murdered in their new P.R.P home. Sade's mom tries to put in words what this loss means to their family.

WAVE 3 Troubleshooter Eric Flack may have uncovered reports of abuse and  misuse in the office of Metro Councilwoman Barbara Shanklin from long ago that were allegedly reported but ignored.  Now the LMPD Public Integrity Unit is called to step in and investigate the problems a few thousand dollars later.  We'll take a look at how Councilwoman Shanklin allegedly used a 30-thousand dollar grant meant for former inmates to line the pockets of family. Plus, why was her grandson allowed to work in her government office after six felony arrest in seven years.

Only TWO DAYS away from the 2012 Olympic games in London and we'll take one more look at security for the athletes and the spectators after a private London Firm fumbled the job.  Also, David Beckham's name is not on the role of the British Olympic Soccer Team but we have found out that he will play a role in the games.  We try to get him to reveal just a little bit about what he will be doing.  WAVE Country is invited to celebrate the start of the 2012 Olympics Thursday at 7pm at the Muhammad Ali Center.  We'll tell you why they are having a free event and why it is all to celebrate this year's Olympics making history already.

You want your family clean but you want to make sure your budgets not a wash.  WAVE 3's Lori Lyle will help you keep your family spotless while you're counting your change.  More important, she will give you information to keep them safe when you didn't even know danger was lurking.  Lori will help you stretch your dollar with those pre-measured paks of detergent, while also packing in lots of things you probably never knew that's far more important than how clean your kid's shirt may be.
