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

Big news for Saints fans. Coach Sean Payton has been reinstated by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. This follows a season-long suspension for his role in the team's bounty scandal. This all came about after a meeting between Goodell and Payton. What happened at that meeting? Get the details at noon or read about it HERE.

Three Americans were among 38 workers killed in last week's hostage standoff at an Algerian natural gas plant. One of those was a native of Nederland, Texas – 57 year old Victor Lovelady. We hope to have more reaction from those who knew him at noon.

Also today we'll tell you what prompted an online coupon company to cancel all its offers related to guns. It apparently has to do with recent consumer and merchant feedback.

Lots of folks bought things over the holidays and now are facing high credit card bills. Find out why it may not be a great idea to go for those anticipated income tax refund loans.

Plus, if you are a regular aspirin user we'll tell you why you might be concerned about your eyes. A new study claims a link to increased risk for macular degeneration.

And in weather, Ben tells me the sunshine will stay with us for awhile longer. By tomorrow the highs should be closer to 70! Quite something for a week in January. Will that trend hold into the weekend? Ben is working on those numbers now, so be sure to tune in for his live, local forecast at noon.

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

    Patient safety is paramount in hospital settings and traditionally, it has taken one-to-one care 24/7 for some of the most at-risk patients. KPLC's Britney Glaser shows how a new video monitoring system is keeping patients safe and freeing up nursing staff for other duties.
