Here's what we're working on tonight...

From WAFB Managing Editor George Sells:

Cops say they have their man in that explosive scare at Assumption High School yesterday... a 17-year-old kid charged with posting panic-inducing Facebook messages.

And tonight on 9News at 6pm, WAFB's newest reporter Kiran Chawla has a look at the broad scope of social networking websites.

One of the owners in the BP incident in the Gulf has gone to federal court to get the enormous blowout preventer removed from the Michoud NASA facility. Transocean implies the people at Michoud don't know what their doing.

FEMA has given Livingston Parish what it says is the final word on the cleanup after Hurricane Gustav. FEMA is not paying $16 million requested for post-storm cleanup.

The stock market today was up 22 points.

In weather for the next three days temperatures back above normal -- in the middle 90's.

Join Paul Gates at 5, Donna Britt and me at 6 and Katie Couric in between for the CBS Evening News at 5:30pm.
