From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning
It's shaping up to be a big day for education in EBR. The school board will meet again and many are hoping for a better performance this time around. There is also a big education summit planned for today. What would you like to see? We'll continue our "Other Half" series this morning with George Rodrigue. The Blue Dog wouldn't be what it is without the lady by his side. The streets were still wet for my drive into work this morning, so you may want to head out a little early just in case. Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before getting on the roads to see if there are any problems out there. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
