Coming up on Good Morning East Texas: The Texas Rangers have a new owner this morning. We'll tell you who won the late-night bidding war…and how much it cost them.
They'll add mud to the cement that's already in place. We'll have the latest on the timetable for BP's efforts to permanently seal its sunken oil well in the Gulf of Mexico.
Newly-released video shows the events in a controversial traffic stop that caused an East Texas police officer to resign. We'll hear what one of the men inside the pickup truck thinks would be a more appropriate punishment.
Some East Texas non-profit groups are joining forces to gather up school supplies for children here…and in Central America. We'll have a special guest in the studio with more information on "Operation Backpack".
And…we'll meet two young girls with lots of energy…who need a family to call their own. That's in today's "Gift of Love" report.
Heat advisories remain in effect through Friday evening. This afternoon will be hot once again with highs reaching around 100 degrees and heat index values between 105 and 110 degrees. We will be watching a few storms develop this afternoon to our south and there is a very slight chance a couple of these could make it into our southern counties.
