Viewers have responded with comments and views to stories on our webchannel about a trial involving beloved trees, the week’s major home video releases, Pony conventions, Presidential hoops, and a recent space launch.
Last month, Harvey Updyke Jr. was sentenced to three years for poisoning the trees at the popular Toomer’s Corner on the Auburn University campus. He was charged with criminal damage of an agricultural facility, which is a C-class felony. On our web-channel, viewer Suzy Q responded to the story with the comment, “I think the Updyke man should have to plant trees everyday he is on probation. I hope we never hear about him again, because I'm tired of hearing about him.”
As we do every Tuesday, the Morning show took a look at the major and notable home video releases of the week. Those included the hit “The Bible” miniseries, the 15th Pokemon feature film, and a collector’s set of Marvel superhero movies. On our Facebook page, Christy Davis said which one caught her interest with this comment, “I will definitely be buying The Bible. It was amazing and I would like to share it with the people who didn't or couldn't watch it on TV.”
