Good afternoon! We hope you are having a great day.

Here are some stories for you to peruse this afternoon:

1. Friends and neighbors are praying and a CaringBridge site has been established for little Camp Peteet, a one-year-old who fell into a small pond on his family's property today. Camp is now in a Dallas hospital and is reported to be stable in ICU.

2. The Tyler Fire Department has been on the scene  most of the day of an overturned milk truck on the 900 Block of Palace and West Erwin, and a crew from Southland Environmental HAZMAT Response team came in to clean up the spilled milk and other items the truck was transporting. This has caused traffic rerouting for most of the day, but we have just received word that the area has now reopened to traffic.

3. Nacogdoches County Sheriff's investigators arrested a 31-year-old Cushing woman Monday after they went to her house and found two small children unattended. One child was playing in the roadway, and the other was playing with dangerous chemicals.  This was not Melanie Arnold's first run-in with CPS, as multiple types of drugs were found in her home in 2012 within the children's reach, even hidden inside cookie packages.


4. An 11-year-old girl was banned from her Colorado school for shaving her head to support her best friend who was undergoing chemotherapy. After a firestorm on social media, the school decided to let her come back to school. "She's my best friend and yeah. (You wanted to support her?) Yeah," Kamryn Renfro said.

5. Seemingly divided, the Supreme Court struggled Tuesday with the question of whether companies have religious rights, a case challenging President Obama's health overhaul and its guarantee of birth control in employees' preventive care plans. Several companies, such as Hobby Lobby, are lobbying against Obama's health care law.

6. As part of a social experiment, a Canadian radio station torched $5,000 after its listeners told them to. Listeners of 90.3 AMP Radio in Calgary, Canada had the option to vote to burn or bank the money. And of course, they voted to burn it.

7. Dallas police have successfully ended a standoff with an active shooter in the Victory Park area. Police say that the suspect is in custody and there were no injuries in the standoff, which began at around 10 a.m. on Tuesday. Several schools and museums around Victory Park went into lockdown mode during the standoff with a 45-year-old man who was angry over his eviction from an apartment complex in the area. Details here.
