7 from 7: Stories for your Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

Good afternoon! We hope you're having a fantastic day on this cloudy Tuesday.

Here are some stories of interest for you this afternoon:

1. If it were possible for a travel stop to have fans (and it is), Buc-ee's would be the one with the most fans, it seems, due to the food, shopping and immaculate bathrooms. Well, East Texans may not have to drive as far to get visit one of the famous Buc-ee's travel stops. Buc-ee's is coming to Terrell! 

2. Texans (or those who wish they were Texans) may also be interested to find out what happened today in Texas history. Here's today's list, which includes the death of a country star and a little song called "Joe's Been A-Gittin' There."

3. What is your flu IQ? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a quiz for you online so that you can learn more about how to p

revent flu and recognize symptoms. Click here, and look for the red START button.

4. Henderson County Sheriff Ray Nutt's deputies, along with other law enforcement officers arrested 10 Henderson County parents who violated court orders requiring them to pay child support. Today's sweep was conducted in conjunction with the Texas Attorney General's Child Support Division. The effort focused on parents who were the subjects of arrest warrants because of their failure to pay child support. More details here.

5. The woman who was stabbed while nine months pregnant in a vicious home attack recently (which her husband watched, horrified, from overseas via FaceTime) got to hold her baby girl for the first time Monday. Here's the update on their condition. We'llh ave more on that today on EAst Texas News at 5.

6. The Texas Supreme Court is tackling whether a state that bans gay marriage can grant divorces to same-sex couples who married in other states. The court heard arguments Tuesday on two cases of gay couples in Austin and Dallas. Both got married in Massachusetts and later wanted a divorce in Texas.

7. An eight-year-old East Texas boy is the area's newest junior sheriff. Five law enforcement agencies presented Caden Bailey, a terminally-ill second grader, with honorary awards, making him something he has always wanted to be when he grows up.
