Good afternoon, everyone! What a beautiful, sunny day we have to kick off this week!

Here are some stories for you to check out on this lovely day:

1. East Texans will head to the polls on Tuesday as early voting begins across the state.
Secretary of State Nandita Berry says voters can cast ballots early through Feb. 28. The deadline to request a ballot by mail is Friday. Remember to have your photo id with you when you vote! Here are your voting locations, by county.

2.  Autopsy results are still pending, but the remains of a body found in a Longview creek on Friday are those of missing 30-year-old Gaylon Bradley. He had been missing since February 9.

 

Sec. of Treasury Alexander Hamilton

3. Oops! Popular coupon site Groupon kicked off their Presidents Day saving event with an homage of sorts to President Alexander Hamilton, saying, "President Hamilton is best known for the fiscal sensibilities that led him to author economic policies, establish a national bank and control taxes." The only problem is, Hamilton was never president of our country.

4. Over a half-million dollars in materials were stolen or damaged at Sunoco Logistics in Kilgore, police say, sometime between February 5-12. They also say it is likely that one or more suspects were burned when a high-voltage wire was cut using bolt cutters. If that rings a bell and you have a tip for police, call Investigator Eddie Hope at 903-237-2530 or CrimeStoppers at (903)236-STOP.

Designer Michele Savoia

5. The body of fashion designer Michele Savoia was found Sunday in the Hudson River. Savoia was last seen at about 4 a.m. Thursday leaving The Marquee, a well-known Manhattan club. An autopsy will be conducted.
