This weekend in The Star

Coming this weekend in The Star:

On Saturday:
Dan Whisenhunt visits with two local businesses who focus on fun. Beyond Imagination is going strong and there's new business, Play Station, that just opened on Hillyer Robinson. Are arcades making a comeback?

The annual Leonid meteor shower is happning Saturday night and into Sunday with a special guest appearance by Comet Holmes. Andy Johns tells you what you need to know about this good night for star gazing.

On Sunday:
The Clay County superindendent is forming a blue ribbon panel to look at consolidating the county's two high schools and building a new one with state bond money. Steve Ivey talks with school officials and residents about the idea.

With water supplies dwindling, it seems like a good time to ask: Who is in charge of making sure our drinking water is safe? Editor-at-large John Fleming has this story.

Meanwhile, water is leaking in Hobson City. Todd South looks into this.

Nick Cenegy has a story about an innovative law enforcement tactic: The guy handing you your hamburger at the fast-food chain may not be a fast-food worker. He or she may be a semi-undercover cop, stationed there for the holidays to combat what some say is an increase in robberies this time of year.

On Monday we will have coverage of some weekend events including the Community Thanksgiving Service at Parker Memorial Baptist Church on Sunday and candlelight tours in Heflin.
