Good afternoon! Hope your day is going splendidly well.

Here are some stories of interest for you to read this afternoon:

1. Today marks 77 years since the explosion that destroyed the New London School and killed hundreds of people, the majority of them children. Many of you likely have relatives who remember that day or perhaps were even involved in search and rescue. Read the retelling of the story and see actual images from that day here.

2. The Department of Homeland Security, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), US Postal Inspection Service and the US Attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana announced today the complete results of one of the largest online child exploitation investigations in the history of ICE, and some of the victims of the ring are kids right here in East Texas. Find out more here.

3. What if the missing Malaysia plane is never found? Such an outcome, while considered unlikely by many experts, would certainly torment the families of those missing. It would also flummox the airline industry, which will struggle to learn lessons from the incident if it doesn't know what happened.

4. A news helicopter has crashed Tuesday morning in Seattle near the Space Needle killing two people on board the aircraft.

5. The Smith Co. Sheriff says two men were arrested for burglarizing a building in Tyler and attempting to sell scrap metal afterward. Their identities will be released later today.

6. Wood County authorities are hoping the public can provide information regarding the theft of over $6,000 worth of fuel.  On March 8 or March 9, unidentified suspects took 2,000 gallons of red diesel from a bulk storage tank located at a job site on County Road 3590 near the Wood County and Upshur County line.Call the Sheriff at 903-763-2201 if you have any information on this crime.

7. A police motorcycle was involved in an accident in southwest Tyler Tuesday morning; the officer involved is Jason Seeton, a 21-year veteran with the Tyler PD.
