Good afternoon, everyone! We hope you enjoyed your weekend and got plenty of well-deserved rest.
Here's some of what we're working on for you in the newsroom today:
After all the controversy that surrounded the HPV immunization in adolescents, a new report from the Mayo Clinic says that use of the vaccine is falling short of what was expected, possibly due to parents' fears about possible side effects. Dr. Ed Dominguez will join us at 5 to discuss the findings and to hear what he suggests.
Also at 5, our Cody Lillich was in the courtroom today as jury selection was supposed to begin in the trial of David and Sabrina Kimbley of Winona, who each are charge with 13 counts of child endangerment. You may remember that the Kimbley's son Jake was found dead in the family's septic tank last year. This trial, however, will deal only with the couple's living children and their living conditions.
Also, four stores were burglarized in south Tyler last night, and they were all electronics-related businesses. We spoke with business owners who are tallying their losses this afternoon. Check that out at 6.
And Cherokee County DPS are still looking for the man who escaped after a chase Saturday night. Sergeant Patrick Dark says a trooper made a routine traffic stop on Hwy 110 near New Summerfield. The trooper asked the man to step out of his vehicle, but he took off instead. More on that coming up.
And our Lauren Callahan will tell you about a forgotten cemetery in Smith County who one resident says is falling into sad disrepair. Why is no one maintaining this old cemetery? Lauren tells you why tonight at 6.
And our Mark Scirto will tell you what you can expect for the next week in weather; join him for the most reliable forecast at 4, 5, and 6!
