Aeroframe employees claim they aren't being paid

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on today.

A day after AAR Corporation replaces Aeroframe operations at Chennault International Airport, former Aeroframe employees claim they aren't being paid for work they've done. KPLC's Gerron Jordan has this story.

Also local folks were heading to the Prien Lake Mall… instead of spending money they were looking to see if they were owed money from the government. We'll explain why the State Treasurer's Office was hoping to give away at least $20,000.

Plus, school supplies can be expensive. We'll show you how one school is making the return to the classroom a lot easier for parents and students.

We wanted the rain and that's exactly what we got today across Southwest Louisiana. Meteorologist Cedric Haynes has your forecast.

And is Sports, several NBA stars are in town, including a few former LSU Tigers. Seth Lewis is there for the Tournament of the Stars.

We'll see you tonight at six for these stories and more. Until then, we're always on at kplc.tv.com.
