AL educator faces sexual abuse charges; Impact of potential government shutdown on Valley

We're staying on top of the story of a teacher in Giles County, Tennessee, who's originally from Lacey's Spring, Alabama, who is facing two counts of sexual battery. WAFF 48's Shumuriel Ratliff will have the latest on the investigation into Edmond Ray Bryan, who faces charges of using his position of power to make sexual contact with his victim.

We're also following the developments of a possible government shutdown and its impact on the Tennessee Valley. WAFF 48's Charles Molineaux talks to former Alabama Congressman Bud Cramer to get his thoughts on how Obamacare is playing into this current development. He'll also explain how it could affect us locally.

And we're following the possible construction of a new Publix in Guntersville. The Guntersville City Council voted to approve an incentives package on the construction of a popular super market chain in the River City that would create 120 new jobs. We'll have more details at 10.

We hope you'll join us for WAFF 48 News at 10. See you then!
