A very happy homecoming

Every day, we bring you the latest news and sometimes it's not always under the best circumstances, but every now and then we find a story which can make us smile and even bring happy tears to our eyes. And we're happy to say that's the case today, as Caleb Beames made the drive to Groveton to witness three young children see their soldier dad for the first time in a year. We bring you that story at 6.

This past weekend an Alfred Wright peace rally was held in his hometown of Jasper, followed by the heated protest 45 minutes away in Hemphill, the last place Wright was seen alive. We'll show you what happened in our report at 6.

A Tyler County child will remain in foster care for another month, after a judge decided to continue a case involving the daughter of a man who was shot dead while on visitation with her. Michelle Reed was there all day today and brings you that report at 6.

We continue our look at local political races. Tonight we feature the candidates wanting to be the next Nacogdoches County clerk. This race is creating a bit of history for one of the oldest counties in the state. It's something Donna McCollum found out from one who should know.
