Don't miss 7 News at Noon!

Good morning and happy Fourth of July!

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

The symbol of our country's freedom and independence was flying high around the lake area.  We'll show you how folks were busy putting up memorial flags in Sulphur.

Over in Welsh, citizens were up early to dedicate Veterans Park. KPLC's Holly Carter is there and will have our report.

One of America's earliest air pioneers is still the focus of mystery. It's been 75 years since famed aviator Amelia Earhart disappeared. Now, a University of Hawaii Research ship could help solve the question of where her plane went down.

Plus a Silicon Valley social networking giant is opening its doors to some fresh ideas from high school students.  They'll work alongside Facebook engineers and hopefully consider a career in technology after college.

Wondering about your weather for the rest of this holiday?  Cedric tells me expect the heat and humidity to continue for the next several days, as will the chance for isolated showers and storms.  Will any of those rain chances wreak havoc on fireworks displays?  He'll have the answer in his live, local forecast at noon.

We'll also have a rundown of Independence Day events happening later today.  We hope you join us either online at or on air.

Have a wonderful and safe Fourth of July everyone!
