Powerball jackpot grows to $600 million

Overcast Friday afternoon in the Jackson metro area, but who cares. It's Friday! I'm Howard Ballou with a look at some of the news stories you will see on WLBT.

This Saturday's Powerball drawing is now worth at least $600 million. No one matched Wednesday night's numbers, making Saturday's jackpot the third largest in U.S. history.

Plus, a former Mississippi police chief already charged with demanding money or property in exchange for dropping criminal charges against people, has been indicted on nine new counts.

And, both candidates in the race for Jackson mayor get endorsements as the runoff gets closer.

In sports, SWAC baseball scores and highlights.
