Area Weight Loss Challenge Kicks Off Today

Here were are, officially in the weight GAIN season.

Those little packs of Halloween candy have been "fun size," but they're not so fun when they're sitting on our thighs and back sides. And looking ahead, there are turkeys and trimmings, pumpkin pies, and Christmas candies, and big steaming mugs of hot chocolate with whipped cream in our future. And perhaps a few festive adult beverages too. Tis the season.

Today is the day to weigh in at Bergfeld Park and gain control of your body!

Here’s How East Texans Can Help Those Affected By Hurricane Sandy

The weather in Tyler is just fine, so it's hard to imagine exactly how bad it is right now on the East Coast as Hurricane Sandy makes her way into New York and New Jersey. There are blizzard warnings in places like West Virginia, because Sandy is mixing with a winter storm there, and meteorologists say that's the first time in history a storm like that has been created - hurricane meets winter storm. And we look out the window and see nothing of the sort. Wanna help those who need it?

The American Red Cross says there are blood drives up and down the Eastern Seaboard that are being cancelled because of Hurricane Sandy, and they're advising those of us in areas that are unaffected by the hurricane to donate if we're able.

Henderson House Built in the 1800′s Offers Haunted Tours

Last year the East Texas Paranormal Group conducted an investigation into the 1855 Howard-Dickinson House in Henderson, and came up with some spooky findings.

Judy Sewell, executive director of the Henderson Area Chamber of Commerce, told the Tyler Morning Telegraph that the group's high tech equipment helped it encounter some spirits that other groups had not been able to detect before when simply spending the night without the high tech gadgets, and she said the spirits they found where friendly and not hostile.

Wanna encounter the spirits for yourself this weekend?

Local Firefighters Take a Break to Fight Breast Cancer With ‘Bras for the Cause’

We're used to seeing firefighters in dangerous settings where their lives, and perhaps ours, are on the line. There are shooting flames, and smoke, and fire trucks and hoses.

Last night in Tyler, local firefighters took a break from the front lines to get in touch with their feminine side and raise money and awareness for breast cancer at a Bras for the Cause event, with the Women's Council of Realtors.
