Tuesday Afternoon Headlines - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Tuesday Afternoon Headlines

Hello everyone. This is Cynthia Arceneaux from the KPLC Newsroom.

If you're like me, those yearly automobile inspections really sneak up on you fast. Lawmakers in Baton Rouge are working on a proposal that would let you get a tag that would last for two years instead of one. Of course, it'll cost you $20 instead of the usual $10.

And how about it? Got $4 million to splurge on a prime piece of real estate? Tonight we'll find out if the City of Lake Charles received any bids on the beachfront property that's up for sale, the old Harrah's property. As of this weekend they had no bids in just yet. But they are optimistic at least one developer will come forward.

Temperatures will be warm with highs near 90 degrees and lows in the low 70s for one more day then we will finally see a break in this stagnant weather pattern! But the humidity will make it feel more like the mid 90s during the afternoon hours; use caution and drink plenty of water if you are going to be outside.

This is Sam filling in for Joe at the sports desk. The LSU baseball team is gearing up for regional's Friday against ULM. Hear from former LSU Tiger, Randy Zeigler on his return to the box. Plus, the LSU Lady Tigers are only two days out from the Women's College World Series; hear from first year head coach Beth Torina on why this group has been so resilient. And, Serena Williams stunned at the French Open.

Those stories and more today on Live at Five and 7 News at Six.
