Tighten up - without the pain - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Tighten up - without the pain

Good morning!

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

State lawmakers are discussing the pros and cons of expanding Louisiana's Medicaid program.  They are getting information about the federal health care law that allows for the expansion.  The Governor opposes it, but lawmakers haven't voted on the idea. A bill has been filed to authorize the expansion in the upcoming legislative session.

A man wanted in connection to a deadly shooting at a lake area nightclub has been found in Beaumont. We'll update that story.

Plus you won't believe THIS story out of Kentucky – a woman kills her grandmother and puts the body out with the trash! Wow.

Also today, it just may be the future of flight – a plane that can fly without any fuel is being developed. We'll show you how this bird harnesses power from the sun.

How would you like to get a forehead and eyebrow lift without injections or surgery? We'll take a look at a new procedure that uses ultrasound to painlessly tighten skin.

In weather, another picture-perfect day. Ben says it will be clear and cool with our afternoon highs topping out in the upper 60's to near 70. Chilly temperatures will come back tonight ahead of a major warm-up beginning on Friday. It looks like a very warm weekend ahead, but how high will those temperatures go? Tune in at noon for Ben's live, local forecast.

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