What you 'like' says so much about you

Good morning!

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

We've been telling you that Allen Parish school officials were interested in getting school resource officers in all parish schools. Well, we've learned that the Allen Parish School Board has voted to call a May 4 election to ask voters to approve a property tax to fund the plan. At noon, we'll tell you how soon those full-time officers could actually be in the schools.

We, of course, are following the conclave to elect the next pope. We'll have the latest from the Vatican City on-air and online.

Also today, a flu-like virus is on the rise. It's called R-S-V and can be especially dangerous for babies. We'll take a look at why doctors are finding it in higher than normal levels for this time of year.

Plus, there's a lot of buzz about a new book by the number two in command at Facebook. C-O-O Sheryl Sandberg is talking about why so few women make it to the top in corporate America.   

It's been clear and crisp so far today. Ben tells me temperatures will rise into the 60's later today – thanks to all the sunshine. It will be chilly again tonight. At noon Ben will tell us how cold it will get in his live, local forecast.

If you would like to get news, weather and more fast - like us on Facebook! By the way, did you know your "likes" on Facebook can reveal a lot about you? They can, and you can read more on how HERE.

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