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.

It's life in prison for Robyn Davis and Carol Sissy Saltzman following their conviction in the murder of Brian Davis back in 2009. KPLC's Theresa Schmidt was in court as the women spoke.  Find out what they had to say at noon. For background on this case, you can go HERE.

There's an incredible animal cruelty case we'll tell you about. Crowley Police are investigating a complaint regarding animal cruelty at the Crowley Animal Shelter. It's a story that includes dog fighting allegations and more. One man, a former worker for the shelter, has been arrested.

Also today, there's a big change in lunch menus across the nation as kids go back to school. Reports show more children are obese than ever before, so changes on their lunch trays may help curb childhood diabetes and other obesity related diseases. 

Plus a discovery in the dirt and sand near a NASA research center that has nothing to do with space or technology. Instead, this discovery has everything to do with prehistoric times.

Kind of a gloomy day, and Ben tells me scattered showers will continue on and off throughout the day today. What will our weekend bring, and what about Isaac? Ben is working on his live, local forecast right now, so be sure to check it out at noon. In the meantime, you can check out the tropics HERE.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and have a wonderful weekend!

    Hodges Gardens. It's one of the most beautiful spots in Louisiana, but in just days visitors will no longer be able to see it.  It's almost time.  Time for something good to come to an end.  Chris Nolen is sorting and packing up items from Hodges Gardens State Park.  "What are you going to do with magnets that say Hodges Gardens State Park when there's no state park," said Nolen.  That's right Hodges Gardens will officially be closing ...
