Good morning!

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

Senator David Vitter visits the lake area today. We were there as he addressed local business leaders and held an open house at his Lake Charles office. We'll have some of what he had to say during our noon show.

I say, I say what's going on in Acadia Parish? Foghorn Leghorn may be looking over his shoulder out there as authorities are seeking a rooster bandit! Nine roosters have been taken, and the owner wants them all to head back to the roost. Can you identify the suspect? Check out the picture HERE.

Also, Jeff Davis authorities are looking for a suspected diesel thief. Check out that story HERE.

We'll also show you how music is giving hope to some Alzheimer's patients trying to cope with the disease. See how a care facility is attempting to bring back precious memories through song.

Plus, prom can be exciting and unforgettable. One high school is making sure the experience is no different for special needs students.

Another cold morning, but Ben says this should be the last of the extreme cold conditions.  Our high today should be in the middle 60's, and by Thursday we should be up to the lower 70's.   What can we expect as we get closer to the holiday weekend? Tune in at noon for Ben's live, local forecast.

How would  you like to spend a little time sunning on the beaches of Hawaii? Lots of folks travel there for vacation, but now authorities are worried about all those pleasure seekers taking in all those ocean waves. A string of drowning incidents is prompting a video warning to travelers. Learn more about it HERE.

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

    Sinkholes in the road are an issue all over Lake Charles and a pretty common sight in the Downtown area. Drivers usually have to dodge the cones, especially on Division Street. If you drive down the stretch of Division Street, in between Ryan and Bilbo, you're probably used to avoiding a sinkhole. The most recent one was fixed Tuesday, caused by a cracked drainage line under the street where water seeped out and created a void. “They just go in, cut out a section and pour as...
