Major service cuts for CATS may be premature

Some say a recent report about major service cuts for the CATS bus system may be a little premature. The CEO of CATS says they stand to lose millions; and even with the new tax, they will have to restructure some things. WAFB's Greg Meriwether will have the details on 9News at 5.

The trial is underway for a man connected to a murder that happened May 4, 2011 on Aster Street. WAFB's Jim Shannon was in court and will have the latest on 9News at 6.
