Thanks for joing us tonight.

A very sad and somber night in eupora as hundreds of family, friends, and complete strangers came together to remember 14 month old major j'don barr.

Natural sound love and support has been pouring from all over to a family who lost their pride and joy in an accident monday afternoon.

As tears shed people hugged each other, sang songs of comfort, and sent beautiful blue and white balloons into the sky.

Little major was run over yesterday afternoon in accident on posey street.

Family friends say that everyone is at a loss for words but so grateful for every prayer.

It's a lot of love out here and i'm glad and what i see is a strong supporting cast.

A lot of people form the city came out here to support them, i think that's good."

Plans are underway to have shirts made as a fundraiser to help out the family with arrangements and expenses.

Sheriff chris dickinson says they were called to this home at 247 fidgett road around 1:50 this afternoon.

Investigators say michael george had four gunshot wounds to his body.

Deputies are still speaking with witnesses.

Right now the suspects name is not being released.

The investigation into a fatal officer involved shooting last night in pontotoc county continues.

Union county sheriff jimmy edwards identified the suspect as terry payne.

The sheriff says payne led deputies on a chase down country road 102.

The chase went on into pontotoc county and that's where investigators say payne got of his car and raised his gun at officers who then fired their weapons.

"no one ever ever wants to b placed in that situation, where they're being shot at, but when they are, it gives them the right to protect themselves and that's what they had to do.

We had prayer with them last night at sheriff's office and counselor with them."

Dickinson says payne had a previous criminal record.

The mississippi bureau of investigation is taking over the case.

New at ten a pontotoc woman faces charges in florida after orange county deputies say she left three puppies inside a hot car, killing two of them.

54-year-old penelope stanley was staying at an orange county florida hotel.

Deputies say this morning they got a call that dogs were barking to get out of the car.

The other two were in distress.

A second dog died at the animal control office.

Stanley faces animal cruelty charges.

A legal fight is brewing over what meat substitute products should be called.

The state of mississippi is being sued in federal court.

Courtney ann jackson explains why some say the law is unconstitutiona l and how the state is responding.

Labels like this---use terms like bacon, burgers, chorizo.

But it also shows that it's 100% vegan.

Makers of plant-based foods claim they will no longer be allowed to use terms like "meatles meatballs" or "veggie burger "people understand tha foods labeled as meatless do not contain meat.

Customers seek out these foods specifically because they are vegan.

However, for sellers of vegan foods it is extremely helpful to explain to customers the characteristics of the foods using meat product terms."

Mississippi's new law that took effect monday seeks to crack down on the way those products are labeled.

But this federal lawsuit argues that's a violation of the first amendment rights for companies like upton's foods.

"our packaging is very proudl labeled as vegan and fully compliant with all the fda regulations.

We see this law in mississippi as a protectionist move by the meat industry to stifle competion and we feel that that is unfair."

Agriculture commissioner andy gipson--- "that's hogwash.

Wha prompted this movement is that consumers of mississippi have been crying out confused about what's on the shelf.

Is this meat or is this not meat?"

Here's the thing...mississippi hasn't actually finalized any regulations connected to the new law.

The proposed regulations were filed with the secretary of state's office monday---the same day the lawsuit was filed in federal court.

Gipson notes there is a 25 day comment period for anyone who takes issues with the regulations.

"if it's not meat, you can't cal it meat.

It's just that simple.

They can say meatless, meat- free.

That's even in our rules.

But i don't know if they've taken the time to read the rules.

Bless their heart."

The cdc is warning swimmers about a parasite that could be in the same water you're trying to cool off in on a hot summer day.

Our stephanie poole visited one local hot spot where employees say they make sure the water is monitored around the clock to keep everyone healthy.

é nats for many local families, swimming is just part of summer.

But before diving in, be aware of one swimmer that could already be hiding in the water.

Cryptospordium, is a fecal parasite.

And, the centers for disease control says it can last in the water for days.

At starkville's large public pool, executive director of parks and recreation gerry logan and his staff constantly regulate the water quality.

Nats " we monitor th water ph, water stability everyday.

We have a couple of different measures in place so checking ph everyday and chlorine levels."

On warmer days, the levels go up even more.

" the sun abov can affect the water quality and ph levels and chlorine levels.

We tend to have to use more cause it dilutes over time."

Logan says these methods should help keep the pool sanitized and regulated from any breakout of this and other diseases.

But it takes more than just chlorine.

Logan urges swimmers to practice good hygiene before hopping in.

" shower befor and after you enter a public pool."

He also suggests that toddlers wear swim diapers.

And avoid swimming if you're injured.

"if it's a cut, or minor cut, open wound they don't really need to go to a public pool.

They may put a bandage on there but it doesn't matter, the water will still get in there and they're basically transferring that into the open water.

" logan says " it's really jus testing the water frequently and adjusting as necessary."

Nats okolona is up next on the high school football tour..

New faces will lead the chieftains, but the goals remain the same see the preview next in sports... spx open coach harvey and company have reloaded this roster and are eager to showcase some of the new faces you don't win football games in august or september.

You win football games right now guys.

That's why we do this everyday.

Okolona's hard work and daily grind will be put to the test this season.

Head coach lamart harvey faces his toughest challenge yet as the chieftains have experienced plenty of turnover the last two seasons.

"we lost 25 seniors the last years so this year is going to be rebuilding.

I hope people can be a little patient with us because we have some young guys in positions that's going to have to make some plays."

"i don't talk a lot on the field.

Don't try to force anyone to do something.

I just try to lead by example and the underclass men follow under what i do."

The biggest hole to fill for okolona is left by star running back jacorrius stanfield.

"i don't know if we can fill him we have some guys capable of doing some of the things he did, but stanfield is one of those once in a lifetime once in a generation type of players.

With his size and speed and everything.

We got some guys who are going to try to fill his shoes but he was a small guy but the shoes are mighty big to fill."

"it's not going to take on person.

It will take a lot because coach tells us not a lot of players come like that.

He was a dime a dozen so it will take a lot of us to do what he did."

"it's hard to replace him but know it's a few guys who can do what he do.

The whole team has to step up, not just one man."

All around team effort will be key as okolona will battle it out in what is easily the toughest region in 1a.

"noxapater, nanih waiya, tcps smithville, ourselves and french camp all made the playoffs last season.

This year 2 clubs will be missing out.

We're just trying to strive to get in the playoffs.

We want to get in the dance.

It's going to be a challenge but we're up for the challenge."

"we just got to give mor effort than they do and keep competing no matter how tough the game gets."

"they just another team.

W have to compete.

I know nanih won the state championship but they don't scare us because we've been playing against tougher teams so we just have to compete."
