Could something in your purse make your pet deadly ill?

Good morning!

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

The state legislative auditor's office releases a report on the Calcasieu Parish Registrar of Voters. What does it contain? We'll take a look at noon. You can also read the entire report HERE.

Also today, could something as common as sugar-free gum be deadly to your pets? We'll have words of advice from veterinarians before it's too late.

Plus, the U.S. is moving toward a goal of energy independence, but there's still a debate on how to get to that goal. Today, we'll take a closer look at the future of biofuels.

In weather, it should be a very warm and muggy day with a cold front sparking an isolate shower or thunderstorm this evening. Ben says, however, that most areas will not see rain.  What will tomorrow bring, and the rest of the week? Ben's working on those numbers right now so be sure to tune in for his live, local forecast at noon.

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