South Christian Elementary school is closing early today due to a power outage. Christian County Public Schools spokesperson Heather Aubin says the power outage can’t be fixed during the school day, but she expects workers will resolve the issue by Monday. The elementary school was dismissed at 12:45. Students must be picked up before 2:30. 

Whitney grew up listening to Car Talk to and from her family’s beach vacation each year, but it wasn’t until a friend introduced her to This American Life that radio really grabbed her attention. She is a recent graduate from Union University in Jackson, Tenn., where she studied journalism. When she’s not at WKMS, you can find her working on her backyard compost pile and garden, getting lost on her bicycle or crocheting one massive blanket.
