Good morning!

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

Sulphur Police are in the midst of a robbery investigation. It happened last night at the Radio Shack store on Highway 108. This morning the Police Chief is talking to us about what happened and about the suspects who have been arrested.

In politics, Governor Bobby Jindal has strong words for his own party. He's saying Republicans will never win elections by just pointing out the failures of the other side. We'll have more of the Governor's comments at noon, but in the meantime you can read more about his address in Charlotte, North Carolina HERE.

Also today, be careful what you take to fight the flu. A lot of folks take too much of a good thing without even knowing it – so we'll explain what to keep in mind before you medicate.

And while we're on the subject of health, are you a fan of hog's head cheese? If you are, you need to know about a recall of a certain brand. Nearly two and a half tons of the cheese may be tainted with salmonella. At noon we'll tell you which packages of Richard's Hog Head Cheese are involved. You can also learn more about it HERE.

Plus, are you puzzled about how to decorate a small room or apartment? Well today we'll share what micro apartment dwellers have learned as we offer some great ideas for changing up tiny spaces.

It should be a pretty warm day. Ben tells me to expect the temperatures to climb into the 70's.  However, he says the sunshine will be replaced by overcast skies tonight because of a weak front pushing thru. What will that mean for the temperatures over the weekend? Ben will have the answers in 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 we hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Sinkholes in the road are an issue all over Lake Charles and a pretty common sight in the Downtown area. Drivers usually have to dodge the cones, especially on Division Street. If you drive down the stretch of Division Street, in between Ryan and Bilbo, you're probably used to avoiding a sinkhole. The most recent one was fixed Tuesday, caused by a cracked drainage line under the street where water seeped out and created a void. “They just go in, cut out a section and pour as...
