Good morning!

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

We'll tell you about the arrest of a local man accused of exposing himself near the kids water fountain at the Lake Charles Civic Center. It's an incident that's prompted the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office to increase patrols around the bathrooms at the Civic Center. Read more HERE.

Also today, are you looking for somewhere to go this summer? How about the new Space Shuttle Atlantis Exhibit at the Kennedy Space Center in Orlando? We'll have a sneak peak.

Plus, nutria have been a pain for Louisiana wetlands since their arrival in the early 1930's.  So now one man says he's found a way to put those pesky rodents to good use.

In weather, Ben tells me the dry, hot weather will be unrelenting this weekend. Heat index values will make those upper 90's temperatures feel like 105 to 108 degrees! Is there any relief in sight? Find out during Ben's live, local forecast at noon. In the meantime, we have some tips to make sure you can stay cool inside by taking the proper care of that A.C. unit. Check it out HERE.

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