So long to Saturday mail

The US Postal Service has announced plans to quit delivery on Saturdays. At 5, Caleb Beames gets reaction from East Texans about the move.

The Nacogdoches County sheriff is wrapping up his first month in charge. At 10, Leigha Hughes explains why the office believes they've made great accomplishments already.

Nacogdoches economic developers have some fresh information on what kind of retail business the city can support. It's the kind of data that tells Target and other major retailers where to open up shop. At 6, Donna McCollum finds out the demographics alone provide a reality check on what Nacogdoches is capable of supporting.

A district judge has ruled that the tax system Texas uses to finance public schools is unconstitutional. Many East Texas schools are among those that the judge has ruled in favor of. At 6, Maegan Prejean brings you reactions from three local school districts who describe the ruling as bittersweet.
