Coming up on Good Morning East Texas: Rescue crews are facing grim conditions in Haiti. The International Red Cross estimates the death toll at nearly 50,000, and crews are having difficulty reaching some of the hardest-hit areas.
An East Texas native who lives in Haiti has seen some of the devastation up-close says there are bodies lining the streets. Wayne Snow says many areas are without electricity or telephone service.
An outside group has finished its review of security procedures at Tyler ISD's John Tyler High School. Officials say the campus is already making some of the improvements that were recommended after the stabbing of teacher Todd Henry last semester.
And…some East Texans are trying a new way to straighten their smile. We'll look into the alternative to braces that could help you avoid spending years with a mouth full of metal.
