Good morning!

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

Some Jeff Davis Parish employees are getting a raise. We'll tell you how much of a raise was approved by the parish police jury. You can also read about it HERE.

Also today, we take a look at the HCG Diet. It's so dangerous, the FDA has banned it from being sold over-the-counter. We'll hear from the family of a woman who died 18 days into the diet.

More hopeful news for an unlikely pair. People say a dog is man's best friend, but what happens when a woman and a dog come together after beating a deadly disease? It's a heart-warming story you won't want to miss.

Plus, nearly 36 million dental crowns are installed annually. Getting a dental crown can be a time consuming process, but now there's a new machine that can do it instantly.

In weather, Ben says we can expect widely scattered showers by late afternoon. Will the rain pattern continue into the weekend? Find out during Ben's live, local forecast at noon or get the latest in weather our web site HERE.

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