Would you wear a 3G Watch-Phone? It could happen soon...

Christopher Summerville Christopher Summerville

Hope you're having a great Wednesday; here's just some of what we are working on for you today:

Our cell phones can already tell time, but we can't exactly wear them on our wrists.  Until now. We'll show you video of the new 3G watch-phone that is made in the Netherlands.  Will it be the next big thing in East Texas?  See what you think, tonight at 5.

At 6, we'll revisit the story about the East Texas man, Christopher Summerville, accused of shooting a Smith County deputy; he's now facing more charges not related to the shooting. We'll disclose the new charges to you tonight.

Officials are still trying to round up a few more exotic animals that have been on the loose since last night in eastern Ohio.  At least 56 animals, including tigers, lions, and monkeys escaped from a preserve and their owner was found dead.  Our Michael Thompson tells you at 5 what officials now believe occurred at the preserve. 

Today in Kansas City, police sent a bomb and arson truck to the home of the missing ten month-old baby girl, Lisa.  Officials say there are no explosive devices in the home; we'll tell you at 5 why the trucks were sent and how it may help the investigation into the disappearance of the child.

The FDA finally says that contamination at the packing facility is probably the cause of the deadly listeria outbreak in cantaloupes in recent weeks. We'll tell you what they found at the facility at 5.

Also, the city of Nacogdoches has adopted a no-texting-while-driving ordinance.  Enforcement will begin as soon as warning signs are installed at city entrances.  What do you think of the change? Should other cities in East Texas adopt the same ordinance?

And Dirk Nowitski isn't going to be allowed to throw out the first pitch at a World Series game in Arlington this weekend. We'll tell you why he's not allowed to participate tonight at 6.

These stories and more, plus an update on our lovely weather, are coming up for you at 5, 6, and 10.  We'll see you then!

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut. Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
