Cap off your St. Patty's Day with 7News Nightcast!

Good Evening, SWLA and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Gerron Jordan in the KPLC Newsroom.  Here's what we're working on for tonight's Nightcast:

A single vehicle crash in the early morning hours claimed the life of a 26-year-old man from Westlake and left another man recovering with serious injuries.  We'll have details from officials.

On Tuesday, the House Ways and Means committee will start sifting through Governor Jindal's proposed tax plan.  Tonight, we talk to local legislators of the past and present to get their reaction to the plan.

After winning their double header against Texas A&M- Corpus Christi yesterday, the McNeese Girl's Softball team went on to sweep the series this afternoon.  Weekend Sports Anchor Seth Lewis will have all the highlights in sports.

Warmer weather stuck around today but the clouds did roll in.  Meteorologist Cedric Haynes is working on the latest forecast in the weather center and tells if the spring like weather will last through the official start to the season.

I hope you join us tonight at 10 on Nightcast!
