Saints' eavesdropping allegations

It's WLOX News Director Brad Kessie. There is apparently more off field trouble for the New Orleans Saints.  Click here and go to WLOX.com.  You'll read about the latest investigation involving GM Mickey Loomis, and allegations he bugged the visitors' locker room in the Superdome. ESPN is reporting Loomis eavesdropped from his Superdome suite for three seasons.

Is it time for Amtrak's Sunset Limited to make a stop in south Mississippi again?  The mayor of Biloxi says yes.  He's asking the city council to help bring the passenger train back to Biloxi.  We have details about the Sunset Limited's future on our CBS channel, WLOX News at 6:30.

Your child's health is the topic of tonight's Healthwatch report.  Due to new requirements for kids entering the seventh grade, the state department of health has expanded its free vaccine week to include children through 18 years old.  

Karen Abernathy found out it's more important now than ever before to make sure your children are vaccinated, because the rate of children getting vaccines in Mississippi is dropping.  You'll see her report on WLOX News at 6:00.

And on our WLOX Facebook page today, we're getting a variety of comments about a report detailing VA healthcare.  According to that report, federal investigators have found that nearly half of the veterans who seek mental health care for the first time waited about 50 days before receiving a full evaluation, a much longer lag-time than cited by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
