Good morning!

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

We're taking a look at some of the tax proposals on the April 6 ballot.

We're also following a bizarre story out of Texas in which a man is arrested after attacking his wife with a long sword and a meth pipe! You can see some of that story HERE.

A more positive story involves a Marine and his K-9 companion. They are receiving a special honor for their service. They helped protect U.S. forces in Afghanistan by searching for mines.  Now that they're home, they're helping each other deal with the stress of war.

Are you diabetic? If so, some of you may have a glucose meter that's part of a recall. We'll tell you why Johnson and Johnson is recalling two million meters worldwide. 

Plus, do you have a child in their twenties? Chances are you're still paying for their cell phone bill. We're checking out a new report that shows how parents are still footing the bill for their older children.

Another chilly day, with more freezing conditions expected in some areas tonight. Ben says this should be the final night you'll need to protect your plants. Find out how cold it will get tonight, and when the warm-up will begin during Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

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