Pastor protest allowed on public property

Hello again friends, it's Paul Cameron in the WBTV newsroom. 

Tonight at 11:00PM—a protest against a local pastor and his anti-gay sermon will take place on public property after all.  The ACLU negotiated with Catawba County officials, getting them to drop their 14-day rule for assembly permits.  At last count, more than 1,000 people have signed up for Sunday's event.

What's the softest target for a copper thief?  Air conditioning units at churches, which are mostly unused for during the week, are the prime targets.  Three Charlotte churches have had their A/C's stolen in the past week.

Charges filed tonight for crime from 33 years ago—the kidnapping and murder of a 6-year old boy.  Etan Patz was last seen in his neighborhood walking home from school in 1979.  Tonight, a former grocery store worker in that same neighborhood is in jail.

Also tonight, who forgot to shut the door?  A boarding staircase which doubles as a cabin hatch, fell off an airplane and landed on a golf course.  Fortunately, no one hit and no one fell out.
