Locked in a car for nearly a week!

(Source: CNN) (Source: CNN)

Good morning!

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

A country legend has passed away. George Jones, who recorded dozens of hits about good times and regrets has died at the age of 81. At noon we'll take a look back at his musical legacy.

In Allen Parish, a 36-year-old woman who allegedly attacked a junior high student and teachers at Oberlin High has made a plea in state court. 

A big day for Boys Village as a newly rebuilt administration building is unveiled. The original burned down in November of 2010.

Also today, a group of Girl Scouts had all of their flowers ready for Earth Day planting when a thief stole their plants! We'll show you how a project meant to teach them good works soon soured.

Plus, an important lesson for pet owners. See how authorities rescue a dog locked in a car for nearly a week!

And you won't believe this story – check out how a woman allegedly used an ambulance service as a taxi for the last seven years! How and why did she do it? See the story HERE.

Warmer weather has returned to our area with a mix of clouds and sun. Ben says we'll top out close to 80 degrees by this afternoon, with a minimal chance of rain for today. Showers are possible on Saturday, but how big of a chance? And what about the rest of the weekend?   Look for all the answers in 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 wonderful weekend!
