*A Westlake chemical plant will hold a public meeting tomorrow on a proposed barrier to keep chemicals out of Bayou Verdine.  Find out what it has to do with pumping chlorinated hydrocarbons away from the bayou at the plant formerly known as PPG, now Axiall Corporation.

*Funeral arrangements have been announced for 12-year-old Taylor Oliver, a local girl that we've highlighted many times on KPLC through Children's Miracle Network and health stories involving her life with a brain tumor.

*The royal baby hype has reached its peak as well-wishers crowd around Buckingham Palace to show their excitement for William and Kate.  Today, the prince's birth will be marked by a gun salute in front of the palace and from the Tower of London.
