Ruling the roost

Good morning!

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

Should parents face charges for the crimes their kids commit? We're going to tell you about one area community that's trying to cut down on juvenile crime by targeting parents.

Also today, a world renowned sports facility has trained lots of first-class athletes over the years. This week, it is focusing on the toughest kind of athletes in the world – the wounded warrior.

Plus, we'll meet Mick – Mick Nugget the rooster. Yep, that's his name and we'll show you how he rules the roost at a coffee shop.

In weather, it was a wet ride into work for some of us today. Ben tells me the storms may be tapering off for now, but he says we can expect some additional afternoon and evening showers and possibly some heavy downpours, lightning and gusty winds. What about the rest of our week? And what about that tropical depression over the southern Bay of Campeche?   Tune in at noon for Ben's live, local forecast  for the answers. You can also access up-to-the-minute weather information 24 hours a day HERE.

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