Man loses sight, but not his vision of building a home


Good morning!

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

No special veto session in Louisiana. 26 of 39 senators voted to cancel, despite a push from advocates for the disabled who wanted lawmakers to revisit the Governor's vetoes of $6 million for disabled services. Read more HERE.

Also today, an East Texas man that's dreamed of building his own home may have lost his sight but not his vision. We'll show you how he's bringing that dream to life.

Plus, just because you're getting older doesn't mean you become forgetful. A new study shows that more people are living longer and remaining sharp.

In weather, Ben says much of the day will be dry with the best chances of afternoon thunderstorms along the coastal parishes of Cameron and Vermilion. We'll heat up to about 95 today with the heat index between 100 and 105!  What can we expect for our weekend? Find out during Ben's live, local forecast at noon or you can always visit the Weather page on our web site.

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