Nac residents unhappy with higher taxes

Some people weren't too happy today at the Nacogdoches budget hearing and they made their voices heard about the higher tax rate. Donna McCollum tells you what they had to say and the explanation behind the rate in her report at 6.

At 10, Francesca Washington explains how East Texas schools are adjusting to the new healthy lunches initiative.

On East Texas News at 4, we'll tell you about a mother who saw her son on a liquor store surveillance video committing burglary. The tape was released by police. We'll show you the story this afternoon.

Also at 4, in our "Dersanappfurdat" segment, our Jamey Boyum will show you an app that will light up your world! Don't miss that, coming up.

New at 4:30, we'll tell you about a school that is getting a makeover, as people get together to help rebuild after a tornado wiped out the entire gymnasium. A retailer came to the rescue! We'll show you which retailer as well as the results, coming up at 4:30.

A veterinarian tell us at 4:30 about "the worst case of (animal) neglect she's ever seen" and what the after-effects of the raid on this home were.

And new at 5, we will talk about last night's sports fiasco: replacement refs. Will this end the NFL referee lockout? Also at 5, Dr. Ed Dominguez will tell us about how your own birth could affect or predict your pregnancy. If you were delivered pre-term, what might that mean for your own children? Dr. Ed will fill us in coming up.

We hope you'll watch!
