HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Good morning! Here is a quick look on what is happening today!

Time to head to the polls!

Lawrence County voters are going to the polls today for a proposed property tax increase for schools.

Voters will decide whether to approve a property tax that would help fill a $2 million hole in education funding after the closure of International Paper. The Superintendent, Keith Grimes says a ‘yes' vote is absolutely critical to maintain quality education for students. Tax revenue would be earmarked for education and would stay in Lawrence County.

Today marks the year anniversary of the Lincoln County tornado

The tornado began near the state line and then slammed the South Lincoln Elementary School in the Lincoln community. 

The front of the school was torn off, about three-quarters of the building's roof was ripped off and a school bus was tossed into the building, which was empty at the time of the storms.

Supreme Court to hear historic same-sex marriage arguments

The justices are meeting today to offer the first public indication of where they stand in the dispute over whether states can continue defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman, or whether the Constitution gives gay and lesbian couples the right to marry.

We'll have more at noon!

Hope you have a great day!
