Good morning!

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

The Supreme Court is slated to hear cases involving gay marriage this week. We'll show you how folks are already lining up to get tickets despite snow falling in the nation's capital.

Lots of big, local  issues coming up on the ballot slated for April 6. Early voting is happening now and we'll tell you how long that will last.

Also today, we'll show you how getting a second opinion saved one man's finger after he nearly lost it in a freak accident. A new procedure made all the difference.

Plus, it's getting easier for parents to keep track of their teens' driving habits. We'll take a look at the latest device that tracks your teens movements and their moving violations.

It seems we're back to colder conditions this Monday. Ben says freezing temperatures in areas north of I-10 are possible again tonight. There's even a Freeze Watch for parishes in that area! I guess Mother Nature isn't recognizing the calendar yet. Look for what you can expect tonight and throughout this week during Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

We'll also have the story of how a car ended up high in the sky! It went speeding off a lawn right onto a roof making for quite a ride for the occupants. See the story HERE.

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