Forest Festival time! - KTRE.com | Lufkin and Nacogdoches, Texas

Forest Festival time!

It's that time of year again! And if you're going to the Forest Festival in Lufkin tonight, don't forget it's KTRE night. Bring three canned goods to the KTRE Mobile Studio and get five dollars off an armband. And we'll take all those canned goods to help feed the hungry. So everyone wins!

And Brad Hlozek will be live from the Forest Festival to get a first-hand look at how your weather will be. So Check that out at 6.

Today in Lufkin, while one man is on trial for the sexual abuse of a young girl, leaders in Angelina County are coming together to determine how to stop sexual violence. Francesca Washington explains at 6.

The First United Methodist Church in Nacogdoches is celebrating 175 years of existence. The milestone is significant to the church, but also to all of Texas. Donna McCollum explains at 6.

And here's some of what we're working on for 4, 4:30 and 5:

At 4 we're going to show you the story of a police officer who is getting a "bad rap" for her side job. We'll tell you why her singing is causing such a stir around the community at 4, and you'll see some video of her rapping, as well.  

We all love to buy pumpkins to bake with and decorate with this time of year, but this year, they may be harder to get your hands on. We'll tell you why at 4.

And new at 4:30, we'll tell you about a driver who was brutally assaulted by a marine who was a passenger in his taxi. the video is unbelievable, and has truly affected the driver; he'll tell you his story coming up.

We'll also tell you at 4:30 about one of the most talked-about stars on TV. These days: Honey Booboo. We'll show you a brand new interview with her as Shaley Sanders tells you more about this precocious child...whether you like it or not. ;)

New at 5: federal investigators are looking into a small plane crash in Florida that injured two people. Video of the plane was captured as the plane was landing. Melanie Torre tells you more about it tonight.

We'll show you new video at 5 that was captured on home video of the flood damage in Tucson, Arizona. Many homes have thousands of dollars worth of damage and are having a difficult time getting insurance help. Check that out coming up.
