Texas family speaks out on Boy Scout policy

Good afternoon, East Texas! We  hope your day is going well.

We're busily working on these and other stories for you today in our newsroom:

First, a Texas family that was impacted by the ban is speaking out in favor of changing the Scouts' policy on gays in the organization; they are in favor of changing the policy, as it hits close to home for them. Find out why at 4.

At 5, Dr. Ed Dominguez will join us, today talking about a new study that says individuals who participate in cardio-respiratory exercises during middle-age had significantly lower risk for dementia in their later years. Dr. Ed will weigh in on that in just a bit.

And then at 6, we'll discuss the Super Bowl blackout investigation, National Pancake Day, and our Annette Falconer will follow-up with us on how the cosmetology school at Kilgore College has been fighting a battle today...a battle against bats in their building!

We'll have all that and much more, as well as your best local weather forecast from Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto.

Join us on the livestream at KLTV.com at 4, 5, and 6!

We'll see you then!
