Hyundai Goes to 4-day Week

A decline in auto sales has prompted the Hyundai plant in Montgomery to swap to a 4-day work week for the remainder of 2008.

Hyundai isn't the only Alabama auto maker to be affected. The Mercedes plant in north Alabama will also be going to a 4-day week. The Honda plant in Lincoln, AL will be reducing output by 10,000 vehicles, as well.

Not all automakers in Alabama are suffering, however. The Toyota plant in Huntsville, which shut down it's V8 engine production earlier this year, will be restarting the line this week.

Cow Killed and Eaten in Field

3 men in White Plains, AL killed, butchered and ate a pregnant cow in a farmer's field. The cow was killed with a bow and arrow. The men have been charged with killing the cow, which could amount to a felony.
