Local news coming Friday

Here's what the metro staff is working to bring you in tomorrow's paper:
  • The long wait is nearly over. Football season has finally arrived. High school action is kicking off Thursday night between Wellborn and Saks, with a full slate of games Friday. Check for full coverage Friday and Saturday.
  • There's sure to be a strange feeling in the air at one football venue tomorrow night: Lou Scales Stadium, where for the first time in more than two decades, Larry Ginn will not be coaching the Alexandria Valley Cubs. Features Editor Laura Tutor explores what it is about Alexandria that makes that fact matter so much.
  • Staff writer Matt Kasper visits Eagle's Landing, a drug- and alcohol-abuse recovery center near Jacksonville, where women learn to change their lives by being accountable to themselves and to each other.
