7 from 7: Stories for your Tuesday

Good afternoon!

Here are some stories for you to peruse on this sunny, warm Tuesday:

1. An East Texas man has admitted to molesting a 12-year-old on a school playground. The 20-year-old man, Joshua Michael Tutor, admitted he knew she was underage and that it was wrong.

2. Grieving borrowers told to repay student loan immediately and in full if relative dies. It could be in the fine print that you or your child signed.


Heather Little at The Forge in Ben Wheeler, Texas.

3. She's written songs that you've heard Miranda Lambert sing, she's worked as a custodian to support her kids after a difficult marriage split, and now she's climbing back on top, following her musical dreams...her name is Heather Little, and you can read her story here.


4. We launched a new page on our website today, and we'd love for you to check it out! It's called The Loop and it's all about East Texas culture: Music, people, places, events, arts, and food. We'd even like you to be a contributor! If you have a story idea or some photos to share, contact StephanieFrazier@kltv.com for more information.  Check out www.theloop.kltv.com for more information!

5. The second-oldest World War II veteran was honored today in East Texas. His name is E.E. Hill and he is 107 years old. Our Kristen King met with Hill today, and she'll share his story tonight on East Texas News at 6.

6. The Supreme Court will decide whether or not a company called Aereo has the right to take television broadcast over the public airwaves, collect it with antennas, and then distribute it on the internet for a fee. Broadcasters say they are stealing their copyrighted material. Aereo disagrees. We'll tell you more tonight on East Texas News at 5.

7. They are being called "prep school perps." Two graduates of a prestigious PA high school are accused of running a massive drug ring. Authorities say the suspects were selling all kinds of drugs to students at three colleges and some high schools, as well. Watch the news at 5 p.m. for more on this story.

Here is the link to our livestream on KLTV.com. We're here daily with live newscasts at 4, 5 and 6, just in case you can't get to your tv.

We'll see you soon!
