Good Morning Everyone! Here's what we're working on this morning.

The reward is now at $15,000 for information behind a kidnapping in Tennessee. A lot of people are praying for the safe return of 9-year old Carlie Trent, taken by her uncle who doesn't have custodial rights. We'll bring you the latest behind the search for her.

We're getting in breaking news overnight about a stabbing rampage in Massachusetts. We'll break down all the details.

Finally a decision! The Madison County School will move forward with building a brand new high school in Monrovia. The hang up was over easing overcrowding at Sparkman High by splitting the students up to make up the new high school. Nope, the board voted for a whole new school with grades 9-12. You have to hear the last hurdle the county has to clear before it all becomes a reality.

Our state Chief Justice is still suspended from the bench but he's fighting to get his power back. Chief Justice Roy Moore's attorneys want his charges dropped. We'll let you hear the war of words over this for yourself at 5:30 a.m. & 6:30 a.m.

With Governor Bentley's signature, we have two new laws in the state. One adding a new illegal drug to the controlled substance list and the other now determining our official state dessert. Hear what took the cake, get it....at 5:30 & 6:30 a.m.

Do you really know all the symptoms of Asthma? Apparently, wheezing and shortness of breath is just the beginning when it comes to warning signs. We'll explain.

See you starting at 4:30 a.m.
