Good afternoon! Are you seeing the sun, finally? What a wonderful thing, after all the gray we've seen.

Here are some stories for you to peruse on this lovely afternoon:

1. Sharon Maxwell, found guilty in 2012 for the murder of her husband Gordon Maxwell, appealed her conviction, citing that evidence in her case was insufficient. The court disagreed, and she will remain in prison without parole. Maxwell was found guilty of shooting her husband four times, dragging his body into his truck, and setting it on fire.

2. Described as "the one great star that television created and who created television," comedian Sid Caesar, is reported to have passed away at his home in the Los Angeles area Wednesday morning. He was 91. Read about his groundbreaking comedy sketches and television shows here.

3. Do you have a student who will be a college student in the next year or so? Make sure to join Taylor Hemness this afternoon at 4, 5 and 6 as he reports from College for All Texans, in Austin. There are people there ready to take your calls this evening, to help you get started finding out about scholarships, grants and loans, as well as to answer your questions about FAFSA, which every parent must fill out online in order for their child to receive student aid.

4. David Trey Metoyer, 20, was arrested by Tyler police Wednesday for indecent exposure, a class B misdemeanor. Tyler police say that Monday, Metoyer was observed in the parking lot of Anytime Fitness on Troup Highway exposing himself while sitting in his vehicle.
Metoyer was a football standout at Whitehouse High School before signing with the University of Oklahoma. This is not Metoyer's first indecent exposure offense.

5. Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was convicted Wednesday on charges that he accepted bribes, free trips and other gratuities from contractors in exchange for helping them secure millions of dollars in city work while he was in office, including right after Hurricane Katrina. The federal jury found Nagin guilty of 20 of 21 counts against him.
