Parents convicted in 2009 ‘balloon boy’ hoax pardoned

A couple convicted of criminal charges in the “balloon boy” hoax that fascinated the country more than a decade ago were pardoned Wednesday by the governor of Colorado.

Richard and Mayumi Heene reported their 6-year-old son had floated away in an homemade UFO-shaped silver helium balloon in 2009. But the child was never on the balloon, and he was later found unharmed at his home.

Meteorologist Tom Konvicka

SEVERE WEATHER REMAINS POSSIBLE through midnight. High wind and a few tornadoes are the primary threats. Instability is lacking and this should limit the scope and intensity of the event; however, forcing is quite strong from an upper-level trough and surface cold front so there remains potential for this situation to over-achieve. Monitor your sources for weather information-warnings may be issued.

Ok so, why is your news so biased. I just feel like the news lies so much. They were just now talking about the coronavirus bill on Jambalaya. President Trump is trying to get American families more than the measly $600 that the LEFT FINALLY agreed on. They have been trying for months on end to get the left to agree on a bill to get money to the American people!!!! The Democrats in Congress have turned each and every single Bill Down!!! It irritates the ever-loving crap out of me, when I try to watch my local news and they are so anti Trump that they continue to lie and push the Democratic agenda on the people!! The GOP are Not the ones that have been blocking a Coronavirus bill!!! That would be the Democrats!!! Once again!!! The GOP are NOT the ones that have been blocking a coronavirus Bill!! Why are you lying to people???? So tired of all these news stations lying or blocking news that people need to know!!’ I guess I will have to stop watching my locals on Kalb. Can’t stand it anymore. Every single time they talk about President Trump, it’s always negative. Every time they interview Traci Potts I want to vomit. It’s always negative against him to try and brain wash the people. I have had ENOUGH! So good-bye channel 5! It’s been real the past 30 years!! 👋

Back in the summer JBE & Coach O were on KALB back to back & stated "They needed to get LSU football back for the fall season "because of the revenue it generates" & to do so had to have students back on campus to qualify to play. This when high school seniors were not allowed to graduate or finish their sports seasons. It's hard to social distance playing footbal (or any other contact sport). I'm reasonably certain players weren't wearing mask when they lined up across from each other on the field either. Now JBE is telling us a Halloween gathering, a Thanksgiving Dinner gathering, A Christmas gathering is going to cause these massive Covid surges. MAYBE IF THE STATE OF LA. & JBE STARTED SELLINGDINNER TICKETS WHERE EVERYONE BUY A TICKET FOR $5/$10 WHATEVER SO HOLIDAY DINNERS WOULD GENERATE REVENUE LIKE LSU FOOTBALL DOES MAYBE IT WOULD BE SAFE FOR US TO HAVE HOLIDAY DINNERS AGAIN!!!! Is there any time in the foreseeable future that KALB plans to start reporting facts instead of political propoganda??

KALB Friends, My husband and I have just viewed your documentary about Hurricane Laura. Thanks so much for producing this documentary; its first class and award-winning. We sincerely appreciate you guys over here in Leesville. Keep up the great work!
We folks who are using antennas are having problems getting a good picture for Channel 5. Is something wrong or how long will we experience this problem? Thank You and have a great day.🎄
Channel 5 acting up on the Bunkie area.
Your journalist on the local news need to read the news and keep their commentary or so called opinions to themselves. Their opinions are normally wrong and misleading to a community who will follow anything or anyone instead of soliciting the facts and truth. The only journalist that stick to the fact is the weatherman. Stop doing more harm than good. Second look should be eliminated all together. Please feel free to contact me for I stand by this post wholeheartedly. Ida Valant-Osborne USA retired.
KALB, y'all need to seriously investigate what's going on at the Garden of Memories cemetery here in town...https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=4041836929206863&id=100001417867289
Just wondering - if COVID is such a contagious threat that I should not go to any small Christmas parties among people I know, and Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years celebrations are discouraged as being irresponsible exercises of freedom, then why is that same government COMMANDING me under penalty of law to show up with over 100 strangers to congregate for an extended period at an enclosed public place less than 2 weeks after the holidays?
