Town of Welsh lifts ban on pit bulls

Good Evening,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on for Nightcast.

There's a change of heart in the Town of Welsh. City officials lifted the ban on pit bulls. However, KPLC's Haley Rush tells us the lift comes with some stiff penalties if any dog is found to be vicious.

Plus, the Louisiana State Treasury Office gave away more than $101,000 in unclaimed money to SWLA residents this weekend. Tonight, KPLC's Gerron Jordan will explain how you can find out if you are owed any cash.

And it was an opportunity for prospective students to meet Southern University System President Dr. Ronald Mason, Jr. Wilson was in Lake Charles as part of his statewide tour to talk about Southern University and one of the system's biggest events – the "Bayou Classic."

Also can we expect more rain for our work week? Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton is in for Cedric tonight and will have your forecast.

We'll see you tonight at ten. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.
