We have a lot of interesting stories and video to share with you on East Texas News at 4:
An Upshur County family is frantically searching for its pet Wallaby, named Hamilton, which escaped from it's home in Gilmer on Friday. The community is pitching in, keeping eyes open and attempting to help. We'll check in at 4.
Also at 4, I'm going to write this, but you won't believe it, I bet: The Denver airport is "under attack." It's being attacked by bunnies. Yes, bunnies! We'll tell you what's going on coming up.
At 5, we'll discuss the once-again rising prices of fuel, and why it's happening. We also have a slideshow of area gas prices, taken today all around the area. Click here to view
And we'll talk at 6 about the fuel spill that occurred on Loop 323 and Commerce prompting a HAZMAT clean up, and we'll share the latest on the American Legion murder in Henderson that occurred over the weekend.
All of that and much more is coming up for you this afternoon at 4, 5, and 6. Don't miss it!
