Breastfeeding in public - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Breastfeeding in public

(Source: MGN Online) (Source: MGN Online)

Good morning!

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

A local organization is getting more than a million dollars to help people sign up for new insurance options available under the health care law. Those options would be part of the federal online marketplaces, called "exchanges."

Also today, we're talking about August being breast feeding awareness month. We'll take a closer look at policies in Louisiana regarding breast feeding in public. You can also take part in our poll on the subject HERE.

Plus, meet a 73-year-old grandmother who worked her way back from an illness – by becoming a power lifter! We'll tell you how she did it.

In weather, Cedric says we can look for plenty of sunshine with a few clouds. Our highs will range from the upper 80s to lower 90s, and tonight we can expect clear, crisp, conditions. Saturday also looks great, but what about our Sunday? Cedric is checking into that as well as the tropics as a disturbance moves to our south. You'll want to check out his live, local forecast at noon – and remember, you can always access local weather and tropical conditions HERE.

And while you're on our website, you may want to check out THIS story. It's about the world's tiniest bible.

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

    It's a major headache Prien Lake Elementary parents have been dealing with for the past three days--traffic.  The new access road that Calcasieu Parish Superintendent Karl Bruchhaus says is finally finished was suppose to help fix that problem, but some parents are still struggling with the traffic.  Even if it's only an inch, parent Amy Jackson was excited just to be moving.   "Last year I was safe by leaving my job downtown by... 2:30," said Jac...

    I Wanna Know: Why don't they cut the grass?

    High grass and weeds can be hiding places for pests like rodents and snakes, and they can breed mosquitoes. That's why Lake Charles resident Raymond LeDay wants to know why billion-dollar company Entergy doesn't cut its grass. The Southeast corner of Highway 171 and Fitzenreiter Road is a large tract of land. Much, if not most of it, is owned by Entergy.
