Join Us For 7News Live@Noon!

Good morning everyone!

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

We'll have news of layoffs that could affect Moss Regional employees as early as Oct. 1.  KPLC has learned that a proposed reduction plan was issued today, but hospital officials tell us final decisions have not yet been made.

Meanwhile, the shockwaves continue over in DeQuincy where employees are reeling from the impending closure of the Phelps Correctional Center. Today, the Louisiana Department of public Safety and Corrections will meet with workers to inform them of employment options available to them.  We'll have details on that as well, but in the meantime you can read more about the Phelps situation HERE.

Also today, you can't always erase the mistakes of youth – especially if you want to remove a tattoo, in particular a large tattoo. If you smoke or if that tattoo includes colors, that could add to the difficulty in removing it. We'll tell you about a new study on the process.

Plus, a technical school's approach to education is a break from tradition. Students there are learning how to build something before they leave high school.

Weather-wise, it's a beautiful day! Cool weather arrived this morning with most every location dropping into the 50's. Ben says we'll get into the lower 80's by this afternoon, but we'll have very low humidity. What will the weekend bring?  Check out Ben's full, local, and live forecast at noon.

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