Memorial takes on new meaning in Nacogdoches Co.

Every year, law enforcement honors those who have died during the call of duty. But this year in Nacogdoches County, it hit close to home as deputies have had to risk their lives on three separate occasions. Though they survived, they know how dangerous their job is and they take on a new appreciation for those who did not survive. Donna McCollum has that story at 6.

Also at 6, Francesca Washington gets reaction from truck drivers, who have been involved in fatal accidents each of the past two days.

It's been just a little over a month since the small town of Lovelady was hit by a tornado.  Multiple families were affected by the storm including 2 elderly women that were friends. Both say they were blessed to have not died in the storm. At 6, Caleb Beames talked to the women the morning after the storm and caught up with them today to see how their lives have changed.

Late-life depression affects millions of people. But at 5, Cheyenne Simpson catches up with grandparents who say they have found joy on social media.
