Capt. Bacon will be in charge of around 100 soldiers overseas. There will be a departure ceremony for the battalion Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Arab High School auditorium.

Police still mum on incident at farmer's co-op in Decatur

Today, we'll be following up with Decatur investigators to confirm what happened at the Alabama Farmer's Cooperative late last night. Witnesses say they heard an explosion around 10 last night. Right now, police are refusing to answer any questions but they're promising an update later this morning. It's unclear if anyone was hurt or anything was damaged.
