Healthy house - KTRE.com | Lufkin and Nacogdoches, Texas

Healthy house

 It looks just like a regular house on the inside and out. But as Leigha Hughes shows you at 5, the eco-friendly, efficient home is virtually free of all chemicals, toxins and poisons.

 At 6, Caleb Beames covers the tragic death of an official working his first game.

 Most ranchers, farmers and even lawn owners agree pesticides and herbicides are beneficial substances for controlling unwanted insects and vegetation. Still their use remains debated. The Texas Department of Agriculture attempts a tight control of licensing procedures, but as Donna McCollum reports at 6, a new policy is expected to make the necessary certification less convenient to obtain.

 There's a certain buzz in the air. It's because this is Week 1 of the high school football season. We have so much planned. At 6, Laura Sadler comes at you live with a preview from Lufkin's Abe Martin Stadium with a preview from the Red Zone Game of the Week: Lufkin vs. Longview. Then tonight at 10:35, we bring you highlights from games all over the East Texas area. Are you going to a game and want to keep up with all the scores? Then it's easy with our new KTRE Red Zone app! You can get it for FREE at your app store by searching "KTRE Red Zone."

Have a great night, be careful and enjoy the game!
