Join us for 7 News at Noon!

Good morning everyone!

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

The City of Lake Charles will not be able to begin enforcement of its stricter sex offender registration law – at least for now. That ordinance originally sought to require sex offenders to pay a $600 registration fee, but that got lowered to $400. A lawsuit ensued, and now there's a court decision we'll tell you about at noon.

Also today, if you're having trouble finding a job, it may be time to pick up a special skill.  There's new demand for skilled laborers, like welders, and it just may be your ticket to unemployment.

Plus, a mother who lost her son just wanted a sign. Now, her son's heart beats in another man. It gives him the chance at the healthy life her son never had. This is a truly heartwarming story as the mom gets to hear her son's heart once again.

As far as weather is concerned, Ben tells me coastal showers and storms returned this morning and there could be further storm development today as a disturbance swings thru our area.  That additional rain will keep temperatures back in the upper 80's to near 90 for most of us.  Ben's checking on increasing rain chances as we head towards the weekend, and he's also keeping a watchful eye on Tropic Storm Isaac as it continues to strengthen in the Atlantic.  Right now, you can take a look at what's happening HERE.

Look for these stories and more at noon. Remember, you can watch us online at kplctv.com and on air.

We hope you join us, and have a wonderful day!

    This is the first time the group has rehearsed all together. This weekend being the only real preparation. For music director Bob Marcantel, he's only a little stressed out. “My choir members came up to me after the first rehearsal and they said this music's hard, and I said, 'Would you expect anything less?' ” said Marcantel.
