Fickle finger flip gets tagged

Good morning!

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

The times they are a'changing. Get ready to say goodbye to Saturday mail delivery. The Postal Service says in August it will stop delivering mail to homes and businesses on Saturdays, though the mail will still be delivered to post office boxes. Post offices that are now open on Saturdays will remain open. And packages will still be delivered on Saturdays. We'll tell you how much money this is expected to save the system.

Speaking of mail, tax forms and W-2's are sitting in mailboxes across the country – a prime target for identity thieves. We'll offer advice on keeping your personal information safe.

One girl gets too personal and displays disrespect with the judge in her drug related case. She raises her finger and that raises the ire in the judge. We'll tell you what happened.

Plus, can your health be affected by changes in the weather? There may be a lot of sniffles going around this time of year, but can you really blame the rain, the cold, whatever? Find out how to stay healthy no matter what the temperature is outside.

Meanwhile, the weather will be impacting our lives today and thru the evening. Ben tells me by later this afternoon, some heavy showers will push into the area and really pick up in intensity at times tonight. We'll have a 100 percent chance of rain tonight, but nothing severe is expected. Ben will have full details on what we can expect during 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!
