How many folks have keys to your house?

(Source: MGN Online) (Source: MGN Online)

Good morning!

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

A big day for a couple of a major projects in the Lake Area. McNeese holds a ribbon cutting for the new student parking garage, and the City of Lake Charles has its own ceremony for Phase 1 of the Enterprise Parkway extension. We'll have coverage from both.

We'll also have the latest in the Boston Marathon bombing investigation. Three more suspects are in custody. Read more HERE.

Also today, just how many people have keys to your front door? We'll take a look at how a limited number of keys to common household locks could be putting your home at risk.

Plus, a new medical procedure gives heart patients too frail for open heart surgery another option to fix a common cardiac problem. We'll show you how it works.

While we're on the subject of health, parents you may want to check something out. It's about a dirty habit your kids may have that you've been trying to stop. Turns out, one researcher is saying it could be good for them. Dig in to the disgusting details HERE.

Ben tells me we can expect more showers and storms today with temperatures into the lower 80's this afternoon. Tomorrow afternoon will usher in a cold front. What will that mean to our temperatures? Find out 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 yourself a great day!
