Kidnapping conviction draws national attention

A national figure came to East Texas Monday to protest the conviction of a woman who kidnapped a child seven months ago. Quanell X and the New Black Panther came to San Augustine to explain why and Michelle Reed will have the report at 6.

The debate over the use of guns in schools is another national debate and tonight in Huntington, school officials will discuss whether to allow some staff to carry concealed handguns. Leigha Hughes will be there with the latest at 10.

Following a federal lawsuit, Tenaha police no longer conduct traffic stops on US 59. But the city marshal wants you to know the town is still safe. Donna McCollum has the report at 6.

Also at 6, Maegan Prejean explains how SFA is celebrating and promoting positive self images to students during the week.
