Good afternoon! We hope your day is going well.

Here are some stories for you to peruse today:

1. Officials revealed a new timeline Monday suggesting the final voice transmission from the cockpit of the missing Malaysian plane may have occurred before any of its communications systems were disabled, adding more uncertainty about who aboard might have been to blame.

2. Authorities have identified a person of interest in the disappearance of an East Texas woman who was reported missing on Friday. Alicia Benefield, 19, of DeBerry, was last seen driving along Highway 31 into Panola County around 1 a.m. Friday after leaving a party. Her boyfriend Ridris Webster has been identified as a person of interest, but has not been charged with any crime.

3. Those who are having trouble making ends meet have some help which could keep them out of the dark. The LITE-UP TEXAS program promises to live up to its name, helping those who qualify pay their power bill. Find out more here.

4. A third person has died from  injuries suffered in last week's South By Southwest crash in Austin. Sandy Le of Austin died at an Austin hospital; Rahsad Owens, 21, is in custody and has been charged with capital murder and aggravated assault with a motor vehicle. His blood alcohol concentration was .114 at the time of the crash. His bond has been set at $3 million.

5. L'Wren Scott, a fashion designer and celebrity stylist who was Mick Jagger's girlfriend, was found dead in Manhattan on Monday in what was being investigated as an apparent suicide. Scott's assistant found her hanging at 10 a.m. Monday.

6. General Motors issued a new recall of 1.5 million vehicles Monday, part of an effort to assure buyers that it's moving faster to fix safety defects in its cars and trucks. See the list of recalled vehicles here.

7. If you have always wanted to learn how to use that nice camera but are a bit intimidated by it, Gallery Main Street is hosting a photography class that just might help you get it off the shelf and put it to use.
