7 from 7: Stories for your Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
Good afternoon!

Here are your stories to peruse on this warm Tuesday:

1. We have assembled a slideshow with names and descriptions of almost 200 still-missing children from Texas. Please click through to see if there is anyone you recognize. We can all imagine how traumatic it must be to have a child go missing, and we certainly hope that the children in these images are safe and can be reunited with their families.

2. Enrollment in Texas public schools continues to surge, growing by 820,019 students or more than 19 percent over the past decade, a new report released today by the Texas Education Agency found. The 2012-2013 school year marked the first time that statewide enrollment officially topped 5 million. Also notable was the fact that Hispanics are now the majority in Texas public schools.

3. Two dogs apparently broke down a door in a home to attack an elderly woman in Kaufman Monday afternoon. The dogs belonged to the woman's son, who had a total of eight dogs on the property. The woman was found dead inside the home by her son. No charges have been filed.

4. Fifteen people were arrested in a Gregg County child support sweep in March. Each of the fifteen individuals violated court orders requiring them to pay child support. Each faces up to six  months in jail.

5. A new option for Walmart lovers who would like the prices but in a smaller setting:  A  new Walmart Neighborhood Market Wednesday, April 2 after a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony at 7:30 a.m. The new store, approximately one-third the size of a Walmart Supercenter, is located at 1900 E. SE. Loop 323 in the Southpark Retail Center and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

6. An East Texas man charged in the death of his two-year-old stepson has been sentenced to life in prison without parole. A grand jury deliberated for nine hours Monday before finding Billy Wayne Hasel, of Palestine, guilty of capital murder. Hasel was arrested on three criminal charges in September 2012.

7. President Barack Obama says 7.1 million Americans enrolled for health care coverage by Monday's midnight deadline. He's praising the achievement of overcoming lost weeks at the start of sign-ups last fall.
