Coming in Friday's Star

Here are a few of the stories our reporters are working on or Friday's edition:

- Reporter Rachael Scarborough King is preparing an update on the investigation of a fatal shooting that happened Wednesday afternoon in Ohatchee.

- Reporter Todd South is planning to look at old-fashioned swimmin' holes in the South. Todd, a Kansan and student from the University of Georgia, spent time at local swimming holes to get a feel for the experience. With the heat recently, it seems a perfect time to cool off.

- Reporter Dan Whisenhunt, who covers the City of Anniston and Calhoun County, is examining the financing for resource officers at area schools. Will Anniston and Calhoun County schools have resource officers when school opens next month?

- Columnist George Smith will have his usual Friday morning offering.

- Sports will have coverage of the British Open golf tournament and an update on the Tour de France, among many other things.

- And put this on your calendar: In Saturday's edition will be a look at power shoppers -- people who say they're born to shop -- in advance of the opening of the Oxford Exchange shopping center in Oxford.
