Join us today for 7 News at Noon!

Good Morning everyone! 

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom getting ready for 7News@Noon

High drama in Ohio this morning as federal authorities arrest five men in an alleged plot to blow up a bridge near Cleveland.  How big of a danger was it? 
Find out what happened at noon. 

Meanwhile, it's been one year to the day that members of Navy Seal Team 6 got into a compound outside of Pakistan and executed an all-out raid that brought down terrorist leader, Osama bin Laden.  He had been America's number one public enemy since the 9/11 attacks.  Today how Americans are remembering that downfall. 

Locally, testimony in the Davis-Saltzman murder trial continues.  So far, much of the discussion has revolved around fingerprints…those of the victim, of deputies and some of which that remain unidentified.  KPLC's Theresa Schmidt is in the courtroom and is live blogging on kplctv.com and sending us updates for the show. 

Also today, it's time for Precious Pets!   We'll introduce you to some great animals looking for a great home and family.  So at noon, be on the lookout for some kitty visitors from Hobo Hotel for cats. 

Speaking of pets, we're also looking at a pet foster program that provides temporary homes and peace of mind for military members who must leave their four-legged pals behind when they are deployed. 

Ben is putting together his full forecast, but gave me a couple of hints about today's conditions.  He says expect more partly sunny skies with temperatures and humidity levels on the rise.  

Remember you can watch us online at kplctv.com and on air at noon. 

We hope you join us and have a great day everyone!
