Thursday, Sept. 11 - More From GMR8

Here are your Local Headlines and More from Thursday's Good Morning Region 8.

Sept. 11, 2008 - 7 Years Later - Today is the 7th Anniversary for the 9-11 terror attacks on America. Click Here to see video from the day it happened.

Patriot Day in Craighead Co. - The Craighead County Veterans Monument Foundation is hosting Patriot Day today at 8:30 a.m.

They will recognize those in Jonesboro who serve as our first line of defense like firefighters, police officers, and emergency personnel, as well as those serving in the military. Details on this special event tonight on Region 8 News at 5 and 6.

WM3, "No New Trial" - A Craighead County Circuit Court Judge denies the West Memphis Three a new trial.

From the Frontlines - In a meeting with the President of Iraq, President Bush said conditions remain difficult in Iraq, but security gains are not allowing him to pull out troops.  Defense Secretary Robert Gates hinted at further troop cuts in Iraq next year, but that a go-slow approach is justified because of slow progress on the political front.

In the Foxhole!  "The Trash Talk Continues..."

Trey Stafford and Bob Snell at it again this morning about the big game between Arkansas State and Southern Miss. Bob Snell is a former Southern Miss "Golden Eagle" (we call 'em the Golden Chickens) mascot.

Bob says he'll route for both teams, but if Southern Miss loses, Bob will adorn the Southern Miss Golden Eagle "head" and a red wolf jersey on GMR8 Monday morning.

If Arkansas State loses, (Go Red Wolves!) Trey Stafford has to do the chicken dance during the radio segment.

So what do you think? Who will win the "Big Game"? And who would you rather see pay up on Monday's GMR8?
