Running for wounded warriors

Coming up on Good Morning East Texas...

A Florida man is on the run...for a good cause, and Tuesday he made a stop in Beaumont. John Pyles is running to help raise awareness and money for the wounded warrior project. We will have more on John and his cause just after 6am.

And, today the petition goes out to get alcohol sales in East Texas towns, including the city of Tyler. We will have the latest details on this petition.

Plus, those of us from East Texas all have a little bit of cowboy in us at heart. So, if you like barrel racin', or bull doggin', or bronco bustin', you'll be excited to hear that the 2012 Angelina County Benefit Rodeo starts today in Lufkin. Good Morning East Texas' Lauren Callahan will be live in the studio to take a look at what the rodeo has meant to Angelina County for nearly 50 years now.

on KLTV.com right now, a teenager in China, shown on surveillance video, makes a phone call while walking along the street. Then, a hole suddenly swallows her up. But it's her rescue that has citizens of Shaanxi Province buzzing. Click here for the story and video.

It's a blustery start to your hump day; some of the wind gusts on the weather net sites are over 20 miles per hour! Good Morning East Texas Meteorologist Grant Dade says...

A warm and windy afternoon is in store for us today.  Lake wind advisories are in effect for much of the area as we see southerly winds gust over 30 miles per hour at times today.  High temperatures will reach the middle 80s with a mostly sunny sky.  Tonight we will only see temperatures drop into the upper 60s.  Thursday will be warm and windy again with highs in the middle 80s.  See what your weekend has in store weather wise on Good Morning East Texas.

    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.
