HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A California music teacher has timed a soundtrack of the infamous Star Wars into a Christmas light show. According to YouTube user Tom BetGeorge, the show began as a way to tribute his favorite Star Wars songs and raise money for the poor and homeless.

BetGeorge said, "He [God] told us to help those in need - and that's why I do it, and that's what I think Christmas is really about."

BetGeorge said 99 percent of the lights are LEDs, so the electricity to run the show for the month of December was around $100. Along with the support of his neighborhood, the show had a successful second year.

The light show is being played live from 6-9 p.m. every night until New Year's Eve.

    The Mississippi State Department of Health reported there are now 12 cases of West Nile Virus in our state Thursday morning. Although, every case is serious, that number pales in comparison, to the 247 cases in 2012. Still, you have to put a human face onto these figures to really know what this virus is capable of doing. For the past five years, the lasting affects of West Nile have been overwhelming for the Courcelle family. "You see it in the movies. You don't ever think you...
