Here come the Dragons!

It's been a long, long while since we've been able to brag on our Nacogdoches Dragons. But the team is off to a torrid 3-1 start which includes a huge win over the rival Lufkin Panthers. And tonight it's homecoming against the equally impressive 3-1 Pine Tree Pirates. And we'll be there to preview the game live at 6. And you can follow along with all the scores tonight on or on the KTRE mobile app. And be sure to catch KTRE Red Zone with Justin Woodard at 10:35!

A driver with the 36th annual Texas T-Party is trying to recover from injuries he sustained after his antique car was rear-ended. But the convention continues and at 6, Caleb Beames explains how antique car drivers have to be extra careful on the highway.

A longtime Nacogdoches radio and TV personality, Norman Johnson, and his wife are coping with serious illnesses. And while a benefit will be held tomorrow to help with medical expenses, Donna McCollum reports at 6 that the Johnsons say their circumstance illustrates why healthcare reform is so badly needed.

You'll want to check out Brad Hlozek's forecast, especially at 10, to make plans for your weekend, as the first fall cooldown is on the horizon.
