Witnesses describe what they saw after Irving bus accident

I can hear you sighing with relief out there; happy Friday, everyone!

Here's a sampling of what we're working on for you in the newsroom on this sunny afternoon:

First, we heard from some witnesses to the bus that crashed on the way to a casino yesterday in the Irving area. They describe what they saw, though their eyes couldn't believe it. That's at 4.

At 5, federal cuts in the greater East Texas Community Action Program are leading to layoffs and reduced services region wide. The deepest cuts are to the Head Start program offered in five counties. Our Donna McCollum tells us the non-profit agency is into it's third year of "streamlining."

We'll also have Pam from Sweet Gourmet with us at 5 during In The Kitchen; she'll share a recipe for a great, unique idea for your next party. Don't miss it!

And at 6, more than a dozen churches across Terrell held a day-long prayer vigil to help people make sense of the recent tragedies in their county. KLTV's Lauren Callahan visited with one Kaufman County minister today who shared why faith is such an essential part of the county's healing process.

Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto will join us at 4, 5 and 6 from the StormTracker 7 Weather Center to tell you what to expect for your weekend, as well as for the next 7 days. Looks pretty good!

Here's the link to the livestream so you can watch us live on KLTV.com tonight. We're here for you!

We'll see you soon,
