Here's a peek at our Friday morning headlines

Happy Friday!!

Support is brewing this morning for plans to let WISEACRE move into the Mid-South Coliseum. We have the reason Mayor Jim Strickland says the beer proposal was the only deal to get approved.

Police in a small Mississippi city say they have discovered the bodies of two Catholic nuns. The women were found in their home and authorities believe they are homicide victims. We have an update on the case this morning.

An East Tennessee police department is the mourning the loss of one of their own. Police say a drug investigator was responding to a domestic disturbance call when the suspect opened fire. This happened in Blount County, Tennessee. We'll tell you what happened to the suspect in this case this morning.

The amount of police officers killed in the line of duty is up this year and one boy is showing officers support. We're going to tell you about a 5-year-old boy who used his allowance to buy lunch for officers. Details this morning on WMC.

A new study finds a record-high number of families are saving for college. We'll break down the numbers in a new study this morning.

Emails off Hillary Clinton's private email server could be released in just a few weeks. A federal judge has ordered the state department to start delivering some of the emails uncovered by the FBI no later than September 13. We'll have the latest from the campaign trail this morning.
