Bad week for business at Birkdale

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

Tonight at 11:00PM—it's been a bad week for business at Birkdale.  Twice in five days, a water main has broken, shutting down restaurants, boutiques and irritating nearby residents.  All this as crowds at Birkdale have been monstrously large since school let out.  We'll see how close they come to restoring service as promised later tonight. 

Sad news out of Afghanistan—three Military Police officers, all from upstate South Carolina, were killed by a suicide bomber.  Their unit was just two months from returning home.

This is unbelievable—a hiker falls 800 feet of Mount Hood in Oregon, and lives.
