Several members of the board had hoped to vote on the measure tonight.

But---after almost 2 hours of debate---alderme n voted 5 to 2 to table the issue.

The motion came after several starkville residents and some aldermen members raised concerns that the ordinance discrimates against short- term rentals while long term rentals are left alone.

The city of columbus's budget looks a lot different than it did this time last year - and in a green way// after being over 71-thousand dollars in the hole in october of 2018, as of october of this year the city's general fund is over 1-point-1 million dollars.

Last year mayor robert smith designed a saving plan to get the city back on track.

That plan included generating money from salaries and benefits from positions that were left open, including nine in the police department... that alone saved the city nearly 500 thousand dollars.

Total employee savings were from 32 open positions across several departments.

Including an assistant police chief position which mayor smith says will be filled in 2020.

A police department in our area will soon be without an officer for about a year, as he is deployed with the u-s army reserve.

As allie martin reports, it is not the first time the small department has had to make accommodations as its officers are called to wear a different uniform,..

Things are always busy for new albany police sergeant joe keaton.

He and his wife are foster parents, he is a deacon at his church and he also serves as a platoon sergeant with the u s army reserve.

" i just wanted to come in, serve the community and help people."

Next month, sergeant keaton will be deployed to afghanistan.

He has been in the army reserve for 31 years and has had one prior deployment.

Keaton says being deployed once before makes things a little easier, but he will still miss his family and friends.

"nothing really different, different site, same job, different site."

Sergeant keaton isn't the only officer on the force to be deployed.

Corporal stephen nolen is in the mississippi national guard and recently returned from his first deployment as part of a nato peacekeeping mission in kosovo.

Corporal nolen says having a boss who supports servicemembers helped a great deal.

"my job was very easy cause, new albany police is very military supportive, had no issues whatsoever with my job, very good leadership here."

Standup bridge of course when an officer is deployed, crime doesn't stop and calls for service still must be answered.

So new albany police chief chris robertson and the entire force make necessary adjustments.

"most agencies, me included, we either use reserve officers, or we do a conditional hire type thing.

An officer comes in, works for up to a year and then, with understanding when officer who is deployed comes back, he will have to resume his duties."

Both keaton and nolen say they take great pride in serving their community and their country.

In new albany, allie martin, wcbi news chief robertson has had as many as three officers deployed at one time.

The incident happened at winston plywood and veneer about 11 this morning.

Now, an investigation is underway.

Our stephanie poole spent the day in louisville and has more.

Winston plywood and veneer looks quiet from the outside but inside the longstanding winston county facility, a tragic work-related death has a community in shock.

" at approximately 11:21 a.m ths morning the 911 received a call from 1160 south church avenue at winston plywood and veneer and that there was an industrial accident.

Sources tell wcbi that brandon foster was working on a wood chipping machine when the incident happened.

Investigators have not released an official cause or what machine foster was working on.

Louisville police chief sean holiness says it's likely debris was a factor in the accident.

"at approximately 11:27a.m.

Fire and patient care arrived on scene and a couple of us police officers because we really didn't know what we had to maintain the scene and give care to the individual."

Coroner scott gregory says foster died at the scene of the accident, inside the plant.

Louisville mayor will hill says it's in times of tragedy the winston county community comes together.

"as being the face and voice of louisville to some degree we as a community must come together to be there to support those who lost.

Whether it's possessions or the most important thing lost of life.

We want to be there for our industrial partners.

Winston plywood is such a community partner and their apart of our community in so many ways."

Atlas holdings bought the plywood mill in 2014 and later rebuilt after a devastating tornado hit the facility that year.

It officially reopened in 2017 and employed more than 300 people, at the time.

Mayor hill says compassion will hold the town and the folks that work at winston plywood together.

"it's a tough day anytime you're dealing with tragedy, your friends and neighbors, some of which you may not know, this is what community is all about."

The plant is temporarily closed.

Osha is investigating the apparent accident, along with local officials.

Coroner gregory says an autopsy has been ordered for foster.

Winston plywood and veneer released a statement late this afternoon, saying in part it is working with investigators, clergy, and crisis support personnel.

Ceo bruce warren says quote... "winston plywood is devastated by the loss of our friend and colleague as a result of this accident.

Our team at the mill is a family in every way, and our family has suffered a heart-wrenching loss today.

We don't have any words to express our profound grief, and we are praying with his family."

The 71st annual reed's tupelo christmas parade rolled through the streets tonight// crowds lined the streets to catch sight of their favorite floats and old saint nick himself// this year's theme was a christmas of peace and harmony// first place winners in tonights parade were i-c-c, tupelo buffalo park, and royalty dance company// stinger christmas is a time of giving - but for some it's also a time of ?taking?// we find out how to keep the grinches at bay when if you ordered gifts online, any day now, packages will start showing up on the doorstep.

Holiday package delivery usually means a spike in "porch pirates" - people waiting to take those packages while you're not home.

Our cash matlock has more on how local law enforcement are working to prevent this.

It never fails.... ... every year, thousands of packages are stolen off people's doorsteps and porches.

Lieutenant andy long with the amory police department says getting caught taking something that's not yours... can land a person serious jail time.

"if they take it off the porch, in the state of mississippi that would be tresspassing, which is a misdemeanor and then the theft of it would be determined on the amount of the product, depending on what you had delivered, or what they wind up taking."

If the stolen item is worth a thousand dollars or more, long says that's considered grand larceny, which is a felony.

Aberdeen police chief henry randle says there are several steps you can take to prevent something like this from happening to you.

"make sure you got somebody there to pick it up because you do know that holiday season brings about a lot of activity that's unwanted."

"make sure you're talking to your neighbors.

Neighborhood watch could be as many as you and your neighbor."

Lt.

Long says so far this holiday season, they haven't had any reports of stolen packages, but they did have one earlier this year.

"thanks to a doorbell video, with high quality video, we were able to identify that suspect and successfully prosecute them."

If you see someone taking your delivery or your neighbor's... police advise you to ?not?

Confront the thief.

"if you see someone that's not from the neighborhood or you see someone in the backyard, please pick up the phone, call 9- 1-1 or your local agency to get a car in that area because a brief description of someone goes a long way."

"keep your eyes on them.

Don't try to interact with them.

Don't try to stop them to hold them.

You'll wind up possibly having some civil or possibly criminal issue going on with your self."

A recent study by comcast shows 1 in 4 people have had a package stolen from their home.

Again, police say if you have anything stolen, or see something suspicious in your neighborhood, call 9-1-1.
