"Bert Case Day"

Today is "Bert Case Day" in Hinds County

A beautiful, cool fall Monday afternoon in the Jackson metro area. I'm Howard Ballou with a look at some of the news stories you will see on WLBT.

The first Monday in October now has a special designation in Hinds County: It's Bert Case Day after the Board of Supervisors commemorated him during their meeting this morning, by giving the veteran WLBT news anchor and reporter the Above and Beyond Award.

Plus, an undercover drug operation in Vicksburg ended with 14 people behind bars. The sting started back in July after complaints of drug activity in different parts of the city. 

And, the Supreme Court won't hear an appeal from disbarred Mississippi attorney Richard "Dickie" Scruggs.

Also, the 7-year-old child who fell from the Skyride at the Mississippi State Fair is in serious condition while Fair Commission and Department of Agriculture officials investigate.

In sports, not a winning weekend for the big three universities and the coaches discuss what went wrong and what's next.

Clear skies and 73 degrees in the metro. See your full First Alert Forecast.
