Giving so much it hurts - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Giving so much it hurts

Good morning!

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

A judge in Baton Rouge is expected to decide today on whether he agrees with the Louisiana Federation of Teachers in a lawsuit against the Jindal administration. The LFT believes the changes to teacher tenure and salary laws violated the state constitution.  

Also today, it's an accomplishment 85 years in the making. After living a full life, we'll tell you about one woman who still felt as though something was missing. Well now she can finally say the picture is now complete after achieving her dream of a high school education.

Plus, it's a selfless act – but it can take a lot out of you. We'll show you how caregivers helping loved ones with cancer often put their own needs on a back burner. That can lead to some serious health problems and we'll explain.

Ben's back and he brings with him clear and cool conditions. He tells me to expect warmer temperatures, but by tomorrow things could be changing. He's putting his live, local forecast together right now, so be sure to tune in at noon.

Mistakes, we all make them, but check out THIS whopper of a typo in a school ad.

And big changes are coming to the SWLA Mardi Gras scene. We'll tell you more.

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