They call him 'Mr. Stubbs'

Good morning!

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

A recent state audit uncovers possible violations in Westlake. The report says the mayor may have violated state law with some appointments to city government as well as violations involving vehicles.

A suspected killer remains on the run. Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's deputies continue to search for a man accused of killing a man outside a nightclub early Sunday morning.

In other crime news, we'll have the story of one business owner who has had enough with thieves. We'll show you the sign he has outside his building that has many folks doing a double-take.

Also today, we'll take a look at so-called "Detox Diets." They promise to rid your body of toxins, excess calories and even help you shed pounds – but do we really need to put our bodies through a detox?

We may be in for a bit of a chilly day. Ben tells me some areas may not even get out of the 50's all day. He says clear and cool conditions will prevail tonight with lows in the upper 30's to lower 40's. What about the rest of our work week? Tune in for Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

Perhaps the end of the weekend rain is reason enough for dancing. Some fifth graders in Sulphur have been learning the Foxtrot, the Merengue, the Tango and Swing. We'll bring you some of the sights and sounds of their Dancing Classroom.

Plus alligators are known for quick moves, but we'll show you one gator that needed some technology to get him up and running. He's known as Mr. Stubbs because he was already missing his tail when he was rescued. Now thanks to a prosthetic covered in the aptly named  Dragon Skin he can move much better. Check it out HERE.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us and have a great day!
