Good afternoon! I hope your day is going well!

This afternoon, we have many new stories to share with you.

First, among other things, East Texas News at 4 we'll have a story that might be rather people who love pie.Bob Hallmark tells you what some unusual pie lobbyists in Austin are asking for, and how it will effect you.

At 5, our lawmakers say the military criminal justice system is broken, and are taking steps to fix the problem. Several soldiers appeared before a senate committee saying harassment in the armed forces is widespread, and that commanders don't seem to care.

And during the news at 6, our Lauren Callahan has spent time today with Tyler's Bishop Strickland, and she got his reaction to today's announcement about the new pope, Pope Francis, who is from Argentina. She'll bring you that story this evening.

Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto will share with you the weather forecast for this weekend, which is the opening weekend of Tyler's Azalea Trail!

Join us on the livestream on at 4, 5, and 6 if you're not near your tv this afternoon. Or watch on our free news app on your iPhone or android!

We'll see you soon,
