Remembering 9/11 at Noon

Good morning everyone!

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

We are remembering 9/11. The eleventh anniversary finds ceremonies in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania as the names of the nearly 3,000 victims are read. Things were a bit different today – for the first time in New York, only family members were to speak instead of elected officials.  You can also access more on the anniversary and the remembrances HERE.

Also today, an unveiling of the Purple Heart Recipient Highway in Calcasieu Parish.  It's a portion of Highway 12 – it begins at the intersection of Highway 12 and Old River Road, westbound to the intersection of Highway 12 and Delbert Clark Road.

As you travel down our highways, do you ever wonder what sort of cars attracts the attention of thieves?   Car theft is up across the nation, and crooks are targeting older models for their parts.  We'll tell you how you can keep your car off thieves' radar.

Elsewhere in local news, Capital One Bank decides to close two bank branches in southwest Louisiana.  We'll tell you which ones, and when they will close.

Plus, a restoration expert has seen a lot over the last four decades, but recently he found treasure very close to home.   He uncovered thousands of years of history buried under his own house – and even in the very logs of his cabin.

In weather, we have enjoyed another cool morning, but get ready this will be the last day of the noticeably cooler, drier air.  Ben says by tomorrow the humidity will return and showers may be soon to follow.   What's happening with the conditions?   Look for his full, live, local forecast at noon.  He's also watching the tropics and there is something new out there – check it out now HERE.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air.  We hope you join us, and we hope you enjoy this last bit of cool, crisp weather!
