7 from 7: Stories to kick off your weekend

Posted: Updated:

Good afternoon, everyone, and happy Friday!

Here are some stories to finish off the work week:

1. Tyler police say they are continuing to investigate more reports of vehicles vandalized in the early morning hours Friday. One witness observed a white Toyota Camry that was sitting next to a victim's vehicle when the windows were smashed. If you know any other related information related to this suspect vehicle or any other information, please contact Tyler police. (903) 531-1072. Our Laura Sadler spoke with Officer Don Martin this afternoon and will bring you more details on East Texas News at 6.

2. It's becoming an unfortunate regular feature in East Texas news in recent days: fires, including one in Lindale on Hwy 69N, and one in Upshur County that destroyed a man's home. We are also hearing reports that fire crews are en route to a structure fire in Lindale; we will update our website as more information becomes available.

3. Who's getting rain out there? Make sure to send pics to us via sendit@kltv.com! We'll happily take your photos from the sidelines of tonight's football games, too, to use on our website. Send 'em on!

4. Members of the Texas Nationalist Movement say if they get enough petition signatures, Texans will be able to decide whether our state should secede from the union. The group will be collecting signatures in Tyler on Saturday. Details here.

5. The annual Children's Clothing Consignment Sale is set to take place on September 12-14, and you won't want to miss it if you need furniture, home accessories, and, obviously, gently-used clothing for your kids! Details here.

6. Rose City bragging rights on the line tonight in Tyler as RE Lee faces off with John Tyler! Entering the 2013 season, the John Tyler Lions had become the dominant program in Tyler. Since 2010, the Lions had won a combined a 36 games. Tyler Lee had won just four times, under three different head coaches. But after their first 2 and 0 start in 8 years, it appears Tyler Lee football is back. Check out what some of the players told our Ryan Peterson, and make sure to watch KLTV News at 10, Red Zone at 10:35pm, and Red Zone Overtime on KLTV.com after that! We have got East Texas football covered for you!

7. In case you missed it, check out this story about a military father stationed overseas who was able to watch his daughter be born right here in Tyler with new technology. What a heart-touching story, and our Shaley Sanders was invited in to capture their moments of joy. Read that story and watch video here.

Here's the link to our livestream!  If our newscasts are on television, they're also on KLTV.com!

We'll see you soon,
