It's fair time! - KTRE.com | Lufkin and Nacogdoches, Texas

It's fair time!

There's a different kind of feeling in the air, with the Pineywoods Fair beginning tonight. Brad Hlozek will bring you the forecast live from the Nacogdoches County Expo Center at 6. If you're coming to the fair tonight, be sure to bring three canned goods with you for five bucks off the carnival armband. We here at KTRE will greett you with the voucher and, I have to say, Nacogdoches certainly knows how to bring it! We're getting ready to get to work boxing those cans you bring us.

Be sure to catch the highlights from tonight's cheerleading competition at the fair at 10.

A Nacogdoches woman feared her living room ceiling would cave in. And it did! New images at 6 show concerns over a leaky roof were very valid.

At 6 and 10, we'll continue to provide you comprehensive coverage from the trial of a Lufkin man accused of killing a three-year-old boy.

Leading off the show at 4, a hit-and-run victim says he's lucky to be alive, after getting hit by a vehicle. You'll see why when you see the video.

Also at 4, meet the most honest cab driver in America. One who returned $250,000 to the rightful owner!

At 5, we'll update you on what the Supreme Court says about a program used by the University of Texas that uses race as a factor in admitting freshman students. The case originated from a caucasian young woman named Abigail Fisher who says she was passed over by the University because of her race.

Also, we'll tell you the story of a tennis referee accused of killing her husband. Her lawyers say she's innocent, as she passed a lie detector test. More on that at 5.
