Rural East Texans find Hope in clinic

Some of our viewers aren't able to take care of the wealth of health care available in cities like Lufkin and Nacogdoches. A broken finger could mean an hour-long drive to a hospital. Not so in the small town of Tenaha, where a woman has set up a non-profit clinic to assist those in rural areas. Leigha Hughes has that story at 6.

Right now the Wednesday Nacogdoches Farmers' Market is closing down shop at the downtown location. They'll be back on Saturday and again on Wednesday. At 6, Donna McCollum tells us the return of Wednesday market is a welcome site because it's a sure sign of good things to come.

We're just outside 24 hours until the 6th annual KTRE Pineywoods Showdown kicks off. At 6, Caleb Beames reports on how the Angelina County girls have extra incentive after seeing how a win for them will mean more help for the Lufkin and Diboll Boys & Girls Clubs. Also at 6, Laura Sadler explains how even though Nacogdoches County has never won a game in the series, they think this is the year the Angelina teams will fall.

At 5, we'll tell you why men decided to walk a mile in high heels.

And at 10, Michelle Reed tells you about a little survivor who has overcome arthritis at age 6.
