Levee Fundraiser Saturday

In Grand Tower, a tavern is hoping the fundraiser it is hosting will raise some money to help repair a Mississippi River levee a town worries is starting to fail.

Grand Tower Mayor Michael Ellet has said the levee near the town has developed a 19-foot hole, and large sinkholes are cropping up.

Ellet says te town isn't in jeopardy right now, but repairing the levee before any subsequent rise in the river could cost $1 million.

Charlie T's Bar and Grill is holding a benefit Saturday including music and a silent auction, hoping to draw some funds for the levee fix-up.
