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.
