7 from 7: Stories for your Wednesday afternoon

Good afternoon, everyone! We hope you are all enjoying your Wednesday and looking forward to big plans for July 4th!

Here is a list of stories we believe you'll find interesting this afternoon:

1. We know that at the top of most folks' minds right now is "where can we go see fireworks with our families?" KLTV to the rescue: we have a list of places and times to go have fun celebrating our freedom!

2. Authorities seize 27 cruelly treated animals from a property in Gilmer. Details about the animals and what will happen to them next here. We'll tell you more at 6 on KLTV7 News.

3. Longview Police Department is offering free safety courses for women 18 and older that include a handgun safety class, and a hands-on day at the department's shooting range. Click here for full details.

4. Do you or someone you know need money for college? Tyler Junior College will award 100 scholarships to students majoring in science, technology, engineering or math in Fall 2013, thanks to a grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. TJC received a $263,200 grant from the board. Details here.

5. A crazed man snatched a toddler right out of a shopping cart while her mother's back was turned and held the 2-year-old at knifepoint.  KLTV's Summer Dashe will show you today at 5pm that the mother of that child says there is nothing you can do to prepare for that moment. Join us at 5 for that video.

6. Wondering what your weather will be for 4th of July and weekend activities? We have that for you right here, as well as live with KLTV's Chief Meteorologist Mark Scirto on East Texas News at 4, 5 and 6.

7. Last but not least, we have an ENTIRE July 4th category on our website! Click here to see everything from fireworks pictures, grilling tips, and more!
