Good morning everyone!

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

We'll tell you about the connection between a local gas giveaway and the banking industry.

It's back to school for McNeese  today. Lots of events planned for incoming freshman and returning students.

Speaking of back to school, all this week KPLC's Britney Glaser is taking a look at ways to stay healthy in the classroom. Check our her story about breaking "germy" habits HERE.

Also today, you may have seen them – even tried to kill them…but they continue to march on.  We're talking about an army of ants trekking into Louisiana by the millions. They are not your everyday ants and it seems impossible to get rid of them. 

Plus, it's not quite seven brides for seven brothers, but it certainly is a mega wedding. Five wives, five husbands – one giant family celebrating one huge ceremony. See it at noon.

As far as our weather is concerned, Ben tells me to expect very warm and muggy conditions.  By this afternoon it will feel as though we're between 100 and 105 degrees. Whew!!!  There may be a few isolated showers to cool some of us off, but those rain chances aren't that great – at least for now.  Ben is working on the numbers for the rest of the week, so be sure to tune in to his live, local forecast at noon.

Remember you can watch us online at kplctv.com or on air.  We hope you join us and have a great day everyone!
