Join us today at Noon! - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Join us today at Noon!

Good morning!

 

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7 News@Noon.

 

A recent violent assault at a local Habitat for Humanity home is still being investigated, but now we're learning that this is just one of a string of crimes apparently targeting these Habitat homes.  We're talking the Habitat construction superintendent about this situation and what's being done to combat it.

 

Also today, Port of Lake Charles officials tell us about legislation that would reinforce the Port's power and authority along the Calcasieu River. 

 

Plus, the baby boomer generation is searing for love online – but can you use the computer to connect to true love? We're finding out how online dating for those over 50 really seems to work!

 

And we're going inside Chimp Haven near Shreveport.  It's a cutting edge facility for former research primates – a place where they can retire peacefully.  New legislation could mean the Haven will grow to accommodate even more chimps.

 

Ben tells me the sun-drenched days will continue, but what about those temperatures?  He's preparing his full forecast right now.

 

We hope you join us for 7News@Noon, and remember you can watch us both online at kplctv.com and on air.

 

Have a great day everyone!
