7 from 7: Stories for your Friday afternoon

Good afternoon, and happy weekend to you all!

Here are some stories we think will interest you this afternoon:

1.In a series of recent stings by Longview Police and the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, twelve retailers were found selling alcohol to minors. On August 14, authorities checked 56 different locations to validate compliance with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code and Texas State Law. See the list of those who were not in compliance here.

2. We have obtained the arrest affidavits of the three young men who have been charged with the murder of 20-year-old Briana Young in a Tyler park on July 30. You can read over the affidavits here.

3. Tyler Junior College's Apache Belles will introduce their 66th line and announce this year's officers during formal announcements 7 p.m. today in Wise Auditorium on the TJC main campus.The Belles will unveil this year's high-kick routine, as well. The event is free and open to the public.

4. September will not only bring the start of fall, but also the start of a new requirement for Texas drivers. The state's Move Over/Slow Down law, which has required drivers to yield to police, fire and emergency vehicles, has now been expanded to provide that same protection for Texas Department of Transportation workers. The law takes effect September 1.

5. After an anguish-filled summer, Moore, Oklahoma students returned to classes Friday at two elementary schools destroyed last spring by a deadly tornado that ripped a 17-mile path of devastation through the suburbs of Oklahoma City."He's a little anxious. He didn't want to eat," Julie Lewis said, wiping tears from her cheeks after escorting her son to his first day of fourth grade.  Read their story here.

6. Citing four confirmed measles cases in the last month and nine cases for the year, the Texas Department of State Health Services has issued a health alert and is urging immunization against this highly contagious illness. State health officials are asking health care providers to be on alert for potential exposures and patients with measles symptoms, particularly in the North Texas area. More details here.
