Don't miss 7 News at Noon!

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

And so it begins. Ameristar Casinos, Inc. is moving earth today in preparation for its Ameristar Casino Resort Spa in Lake Charles. Bulldozers will begin clearing the site for construction and we'll hear about plans for the resort.

We'll show you how an actual plane was seen going down the road to a local school. What was the destination, and how will it benefit area students? We'll have the answers at noon.

Also today, do you ever worry about radiation risks associated with getting x-rays? A new study shows nearly 2 million people annually were exposed to unnecessary radiation during a 15 year period.

Plus, if you have a credit card with miles or points attached, we'll show you how to make the best use of it. We'll have simple tips to maximize those rewards, without racking up the debt.

As far as our weather is concerned, Ben tells me to expect the low 90's by this afternoon.  Showers and thunderstorms should be greatly limited, but we could get a few hit and miss showers.  Ben's working on his complete local forecast right now, so look for it at noon.  In the meantime you can go HERE for weather info 24 hours a day.

Remember, we're broadcasting live at noon on kplctv.com and on air.  We hope you join us, and have a great day everyone!

    Potentially strong thunderstorms expectedPotentially strong thunderstorms expected

    A weak cold front is expected to arrive tonight. There could be some severe weather associated with some of these storms. The greatest threat for severe weather is in northern Louisiana. We may still see hail, heavy rain, and damaging winds. The front will be moving quickly, so we are not expecting the rain to last very long. The rain should be moving out by around midnight tonight. The cold front will cool our temperature down to the middle 50s overnight.

    10 hours a day: that's how long most of us spend in front of a computer or phone screen each day. KPLC's Britney Glaser reports that time can do numbers on your eyes, particularly for eyeglasses wearers.

    QUESTION: I recently went before the Sulphur City Council for an introduction for a variance of a city ordinance. I was told I would appear for the introduction and state the reasons for request. I was also told to submit as much information and sent a letter to each council person explaining that my 11-year-old grandson wanted chickens for a project he was working on. I also sent a signed letter from the only neighbor who this may affect stating he had no objection.
