Good Tuesday evening. I hope you're staying nice and warm. 

One of the top stories we're following for you tonight is the Iowa Caucus. Of course, we'll have the results in this all-important hurdle on the road to the White House for presidential hopefuls. But we're also going beyond the results to ask, "Do you know what a caucus is? And how will this affect us here in Alabama?" WAFF 48's Eric Sollman will have more from our political analyst, Dr. Waymon Burke, to help clear up any "caucus confusion."

We're also digging into another question you might have: Exactly what does a police advisory council do? A council was formed in the city of Huntsville back in June of 2010. The purpose is to serve as a "middle man" between the police department and the community. But what does this community really do? Would you know how to contact them with a problem or a question? WAFF 48's Margo Gray is digging deeper into some very important questions involving North Alabama's first and only police advisory council.

Unfortunately it's happened again. Yet another child has been hit by a vehicle. In a story that's All New at 10, we're bringing you the very latest details involving a 10-year old in the Madison County town of Toney who was hit by a vehicle while riding a scooter in the street.  In the past month, we're had two other tragedies involving children hit by vehicles on Madison County roadways.

Be sure and join us for these stories and another chilly overnight forecast. All New tonight on WAFF 48 News at 10.

We'll see you in just a bit,
