looking ahead to a richland county council meeting tomorrow that will include a plan for significant structural changes in the penny sales tax program. a councilman has proposed those changes in the wake of a state review raising questions about fraud and public corruption. jack kuenzie spokokwith council member seth rose today and has more about why he wants to create new oversight of tax revenues. judi---councilman rose has a three-point proposal aimed at more transparency and fiscal responsibility. this---after dor sent a scathing letter to the county administrator saying the found "multiple instances of illegal activity" over two and half years in the penny tax program. rose first calls for repealing what's known as ordinance"---which changed the normal procurement
rose says, can give the appearance of impropriety. he also says the general fund should be used to pay for work supposed to be used only for transportation projects. and rose wants to give the transporation advisory committee real authority to scrutinize spending. they're not going to be the only changes that need to be made. but they are three major steps in the right direction to restore trust in the penny program and to make sure that every cent that is collected goes towards the projects and are done in a transparent way. rose also wants the chair of the citizens committee to be made an ex-officio member of the richland county council penny committee---and have a vote, which would give that person access to records and documents. rose is expecting some pushback from other members of the council. the special called meeting is tomorrow at 4:45.
for the first time in 40 years, the city of charleston has a new mayor. this afternoon, john tecklenburg was officially sworn in on the steps of city hall. tecklenburg takes over for joe riley, who was mayor since 1975. at the ceremony today, tecklenburg acknowledged riley's commitment to his city...saying he has big shoes to fill. tecklenburg will preside over his first city council meeting tomorrow. tomorrow, governor nikki haley will take her message to a national stage following president obama's state of the union address. haley will deliver the republican response from the governor's mansion in columbia immediately following the president's speech. the honor is typically given to a rising member of the opposite party. the state of the union address is tomorrow night at 9--right here on wis. after the break--we're approaching another historic drawing--as the powerball stakes climb above 1 billion dollars.
as we await wednesday's drawing-- one lottery ticket hot spot in columbia is hoping to continue its lucky streak. wis' meaghan norman has more charles and judi, i think it's still hard for some to fathom the jackpot is in the billions. the obama gas station in north columbia -- known for selling some winners over e last few years -- - has seen overwhelming demand over the last week. close to 30-thousand dollars in powerball
and almost 9-thousand dollars worth sold on saturday alone. as the jackpot grows, so do the hopes and dreams of many taking a risk to play. one woman i spoke to won 12-dollars from saturday's drawing and is putting that toward the billion dollar jackpot. "i'm trying to win at least 10-million. i don't want it all, just a little bit." "why $10 million?" "because i think i can cover all my bills and my 401-k plan and then a little bit more retirement money. i got everything else. when i do win my priorities are first to get down and thank jesus that i did win, give some to the church and the rest to my family. we're always supposed to have hope. we're never supposed to give up trying to get that ultimate. i'm going to always strive to have a little bit more, a little bit better. i'm always going to have hope. as long as i have cash, i'm real lucky. see what i got on my head? real lucky." a lot of others i spoke to share that confidence and maybe for good reason --- over the last few years, this store has had a 75- thousand dollar winner, 250-thousand dollars and a 2-million dollar winning
games. even though the odds are around 1 in 292-million, many loyal customers say they will continue to try their luck -- hoping this time, their numbers are called. in the studio, meaghan norman wis news 10. we've got another chilly week ahead in the midlands. we'll have more on that coming up in your full forecast after the break.

"do you think you're being overlooked going into this game because everyone's focusing on derek henry, the heisman trophy winner and now here's your chance to show what t te of running back you are." "i have no doubt alabama's not overlooking me. no, the media probably is, but just got to prove myself again." "what biggest challenge does the alabama defense present to you?"

"are they good enough to stop the clemson offense?" "we'll see. i can't answer that." winning the national title would mean the
