Good morning!

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

A man throws white powder into a woman's face and then tries to kidnap her in DeRidder.  Today, we'll tell you about a reward now being offered for information leading to an arrest in this case.

Also today, technology is used every day in surgery, but we'll show you how one doctor is using the same device your kids may be using to do knee replacements. It all has to do with an ipod.

Speaking of kids, we're going to show you how some local elementary school students are lending a hand to the Oak Park Food Pantry. In only a week, Nelson Elementary students gathered thousands of canned dry goods.

Plus, find out about the extreme steps one high school principal is taking to keep drugs out of his school. He's requiring students get a haircut – not for the looks – to test them for drugs.

Looking for drugs in one community leads to an incredible find – a meth lab actively cooking underneath the mattress where a little girl slept! See that story HERE.

A very chilly night in Southwest Louisiana turned into beautiful clear skies today. Ben says we'll get back into the lower 60's, and it won't be as windy. Those temperatures are expected to drop again tonight, but how low will they go? Ben will have the answer 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 enjoy the beautiful day.

    A few showers possible this afternoonA few showers possible this afternoon

    For today, we will have a few small pop up showers in the afternoon. Rain chances are at only 20%, so not everyone will see rain. Any rain we do get, will not last long. There will be plenty of passing clouds, but that won’t stop the heat. Highs today will be in the low 90s, with heat indices in the mid to upper 90s! Even though fall is officially starting today, it certainly will not feel like it! By tonight, we will keep the rain chances low as all showers come to an end.
