News channel 3, WREG, out of Memphis, Tennessee reported last night, Wednesday, April 6, 2011, on the swirling email controversy which has engulfed Helena-West Helena Alderman Joe St. Columbia. Watch the Video by clicking on the More Email Controversy Link:

Here are a few of the photos gleaned from that page:
