Hello everyone. This is Cynthia Arceneaux from the KPLC Newsroom. We've been talking about the deal for months between the Mardi Gras Boardwalk group and the City of Lake Charles to buy the old Harrarh's property along with the parking garage for new development along the Lake Front. The group got city council approval tonight. But there're still sticking points over the noise levels that would be permitted in the businesses that would spring up in the development. Some councilmen are concerned that the noise levels may be too much for nearby residents. Lee Peck will have a live report tonight.
And do children in Louisiana stack up against school children in other states? That's the big question that's front and center in a project called "Louisiana Believes." State Superintendent John White introduced the program to educators today. We'll show you how they intend to improve education for our students. Those stories and Wade Hampton will update us on the wet weather coming our way on Thursday. Join us tonight at ten for 7news Nightcast.
