Here's a peek at our Friday morning headlines

Good morning!!

Shelby County Schools are working to find who has been vaccinated for measles and who has not. So far six cases of measles have been confirmed in Shelby County, but none of the patients are current students. The district is now sending letters home to parents. We'll explain what those letter say and how that is part of a plan to help limit exposure.

There are big changes in store for an old shopping mall to revive it with new shops and businesses. It all starts this weekend when part of Raleigh Springs Mall on Austin Peay Highway will be demolished. We'll have a look at the plans aimed at revitalizing the area.

The TBI is stepping up efforts to find a 9-year-old girl kidnapped in East Tennessee. Investigators say 9-year-old Carlie Marie Trent was taken out of school by an uncle who has no custodial rights.

Ahead today, there will be a community celebration for Rev. Samuel "Billy" Kyles for people from across the city to pay their respects to the civil rights activist. There will be two viewings. We'll explain how you can go this morning on WMC.
