Discount too good to be true?

We hope you're having a great Thursday!

Here's what we're working on in the KTRE newsroom right now:

Some East Texans have received a pharmacy discount card in the mail, which says it can save you up to 75 percent on prescriptions. Is it too good to be true? Shaley Sanders finds out at 6.

Jean Davidson is always introduced as the granddaughter of the founder of the Harley Davidson empire. It grabs listeners' attention. It's just what Davidson wants before delivering a message she considers many times more meaningful. Donna McCollum has that report at 6.

At 4, you'll see some crazy video of some good Samaritans who stopped a thief who tried to rob a 62-year-old woman at a grocery store. Let's just say he'll be looking for new work.

Some parents may have caught their kids having a party at their home while they were gone. But how would you like to learn on Facebook? We'll tell you about one family who did just that in Annette Falconer's report at 4:30.

At 5, the Bible verse cheerleader controversy continues in Kountze, Texas. The girls are fighting the school's superintendent, who told them to stop using scripture verses on their signs. The girls now have an attorney; we'll tell you their story this afternoon.

We'll also tell you about a family who drove hundreds of miles to Houston so their daughter could receive cancer treatment, only to have thieves swoop in to make matters worse. We'll tell you what happened and you'll hear their response to it, only at 5.
