Students light candles to remember lost classmate

It's WLOX News Director Brad Kessie.  It will be another emotional night at St. Martin High School.  Friends will gather on the Jackson County campus for candlelight vigil to remember Johnny Le.  On Monday, Le graduated from St. Martin.  On Tuesday, a celebratory swim in the Tchoutacabouffa River turned to tragedy. 

Elizabeth Vowell will be at tonight's candlelight vigil.  We'll take you to the vigil on both WLOX News at 6:00, and on WLOX News at 6:30.  And on WLOX News at 10:00, you'll hear what I imagine will be some very poignant thoughts from friends of Johnny Le.

We just got an email from the U.S. Attorney's office.  Michael Gardner will spend the next 200 months in prison.  Gardner is the man who admitted he robbed the Waveland Hancock Bank last July. 

Imagine the pressure Elizabeth Wicks felt the last four years.  Her brother was the Ocean Springs class valedictorian in 2002.  Her sister was valedictorian in 2007.  Could she make it three for three?  Tonight, when the youngest of Tom and Caroline Wicks' three children attends her high school graduation, she'll make her parents very proud.  Danielle Thomas has the story on WLOX News at 10:00.

On WLOX.com tonight is an article that will change the way some of you get your news.  The Times Picayune will no longer print news from New Orleans seven days a week.  Instead, its issues will come out just three times a week.  To learn why that rather drastic change is being made, we encourage you to check out the story we've posted on our website.

Have a great night.
