East Texas News is updated once a week with archival stories from our eight newspapers. Stories typically appear on East Texas News one week after they have appeared in our print editions. Check back weekly for new additions to our webpage.

The Courier is published in the county seat of Crockett, home of the World Championship Fiddlers Festival. Crockett is famous for its many historic homes, including two open to the public. A museum in the former depot offers a view of the area's past and the county’s 200-plus historical markers provide more insight into bygone days. The Grapeland Peanut Festival and Lovelady Love-Fest are annual events that attract large crowds. Mission Tejas State Historical Park offers picnicking, hiking, the mission replica and the historical Rice Log Cabin.

Ratcliff Recreation Area is a peaceful pine-covered paradise with an inviting lake for swimming, paddle boating, fishing and hiking trails. Campsites are at both parks. Top-notch bass fishing is featured at Houston County Lake. The Courier covers every facet of the county, with a special emphasis on education.
