What we are working on for the first day of school

Good Monday morning!!

Here are some of the stories we're working on this morning on WMC Action News 5:

It's back to school for many students in the Mid-South including all Shelby County Schools and Municipal School Districts. We are live with traffic updates, Durham bus information and what you need to know to get your kiddos ready for that first day. Join us!

Durham is still the bus company despite a history of accidents and drivers with criminal histories. Now Durham has a new contract and a new boss. We're talking about a piece Andy Wise is putting together on the issues of safety on WMC Action News 5 this morning.

Shelby County commissioners will decide if a popular health clinic inside Southland Mall can stay open. For a lot of people in Whitehaven this health clinic is where they can get everything from immunization shots to WIC services. The health department has operated a clinics at Southland mall for some 10 years. We'll discuss the issue on both sides this morning.

In the overnight hours there has been a shooting in Ferguson, Missouri during protests on the one year anniversary of Michael Brown's Death. Investigators say someone opened fire on police and officers returned fire. A suspected shooter is in the hospital.

Don't forget this week you have a chance to help honor the memory of fallen Memphis Police Officer Sean Bolton. WMC Action News 5 is partnering with I Heart Media, McAlister's Deli, Clear Channel Outdoor, Bumpus Harley Davidson in Collierville, and Memphis Police Association for a fundraiser.
