Join Us For 7NewsLive @ Noon!

Good morning, everyone!

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

The search begins for a new superintendent of schools for Jeff Davis Parish. David Clayton currently holds that position, but has announced his retirement in June after 32 years of service.

Also today, the pollen counts are high and that can mean misery for the millions of folks who suffer from asthma. However, we have news for those of you who use an inhaler – new studies show you may be able to decrease the doses.

Plus, a 66-year-old man saves his beloved pet from almost certain death. He took on a seven foot, 130 pound alligator and lived to tell the story.

A great story today has to be the gorgeous weather. Ben tells me these conditions, with a slighter higher humidity, should be around for the day and hang around for high school football tonight.  What about our weekend, well, he's working on those numbers right now so be sure to check out his live, local forecast at noon.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air.  As we end the week, check out THESE amazing shots of the space shuttle Endeavour as it continues on its final journey to a museum.    

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend!
