John Hunt Park master plan updates go before council - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

John Hunt Park master plan updates go before council

Good Thursday evening.

What to do with Joe Davis Stadium now that the Huntsville Stars baseball team have bolted for Biloxi? A new master plan for John Hunt Park went before the Huntsville City Council today, and it includes tearing down Joe Davis Stadium and building an indoor athletic complex. WAFF 48's Vincent Crivelli will have more on the plan and the reaction to it.

With the sleet and snow we saw across the Tennessee Valley today, are we out of the woods from a transportation standpoint? Maybe not. There's a chance some of the precipitation on the roads could freeze and cause problems in the morning. In fact, we're starting to hear from some school systems who are delaying the start of class on Friday. We'll have the list for you on waff.com, and WAFF 48's Jack Madison also checked in with the crews of the Huntsville Public Works department to find out how they're preparing to head off or handle any problems.

And we often hear of Amber Alerts being issued when children are reported missing. But is there a glitch in Alabama's warning system? WAFF 48's Jim Abath will explore why the numbers don't appear to add up.

We hope you'll join us for these stories and more at 10.
