Diocese responds to lawsuit

Good morning!

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

The Diocese of Lake Charles has been named in a lawsuit involving former priest Mark Broussard who has been accused of sexually abusing young boys. One of Broussard's alleged victims is seeking  million of dollars in damages. We'll have more from the plaintiff's attorney and a statement from the Diocese.

Some major rehab work is slated for a main runway at Lake Charles Regional Airport. This work will prompt a closure of that runway for 90 days. We'll explain what's being done.

We'll tell you about the recall of more than 30 thousand pounds of pork sausage since they may contain small pieces of plastic, likely from gloves.

An inspiring story out of Georgia as a middle school gets a visit from the oldest living member of the Negro Baseball League.

Also today, can you really find hope in a bottle? We're going to take a look at some of the hottest slimming super foods on the market.

Plus, it seems you're never too old for Facebook. 104-year-old Marguerite Joseph surprised her own family when she posted her profile. We'll show you how she's sharing her years of longevity with the world.

We have mostly cloudy skies today, with temperatures expected to rise to maybe the upper 60's. Ben tells me a shower or two is possible later this afternoon and evening, but what about the weekend? Look for Ben's complete, live, local forecast at noon.

And we'll have some really cute video of some monkeys riding dogs racing against each other.  You know me, I can't resist! Hopefully it will help end your week with a smile.

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!

    This is the first time the group has rehearsed all together. This weekend being the only real preparation. For music director Bob Marcantel, he's only a little stressed out. “My choir members came up to me after the first rehearsal and they said this music's hard, and I said, 'Would you expect anything less?' ” said Marcantel.
