Good morning!

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

House Speaker Chuck Kleckley gets an ovation at the State Capitol today. We'll tell you how its connected to the proposed budget.

A survivor of the Virginia Tech massacre is hoping to make schools safer for students. She's developed a smart phone app that will allow officers to quickly communicate with students.

Plus, a burglar didn't get very far after a break-in. Police say that's because he decided to take a nap. Yep…a nap.  Look for this eye-opening story at noon.

In weather, Ben tells me we should warm up to near 80 this afternoon with a few pop-up showers possible.  Are we done with the rain? What about temperatures over the weekend? Things could be very different by Saturday. Find out what's in store during Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

Speaking of weather in "our neck of the woods,"  did you hear – Al Roker and the Today show are coming to Carlyss? Yes it's true, and  we'll have all the details on when and where, so be sure to tune in. You can also read about the event HERE.

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