On WTOC: Push for smoking ban continues

Savannah is holding another meeting about a proposed smoking ban. The ordinance would  prohibit smoking within 20 feet of any business entrance. WTOC's Don Logana will talk to experts about impact the proposed ordinance would have around town.

It's the 100th day since an oil rig explosion and the massive BP oil spill began in the Gulf of Mexico. Check out WTOC.com's Coastal Crisis special coverage for the latest updates, interactives, tracking maps and livestream video.

Phone scams requesting water bill payments continue in the Beaufort area. Scammers are getting more sophisticated and even abusive with their calls. Lowcountry reporter Jaime Dailey will investigate and find out how consumers can protect themselves.

Tonight on THE News, Bureau Chief Dal takes us inside the huddle to see why so much is riding on what the Georgia Southern Eagles do on the football field. Watch part two of "the Only Option" Wednesday at 6 p.m. See part I here.

With soaring temperatures, come high utility bills. WTOC's Brooke Kelley looks at an option that will give consumers a break on the cost.
