Good Evening,

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

Allen Parish officials say action taken by the cities of Lake Charles and Sulphur has resulted in an influx of sex offenders moving into their parish. Tonight, KPLC's Gerron Jordan tells you what they're doing to level the playing field.

We'll also hear more from former Governor Edwin Edwards. The four-time Louisiana Governor was in Lake Charles to honor Senator Jim and Marilyn Cox and talked about the future of the Democratic Party.

Plus, a new study says Facebook is causing people to be depressed. KPLC's Haley Rush takes a look at the study and asks McNeese students what they think.

 And a huge sigh of relief along the Gulf coast as what was once Tropical Storm Karen is now a slow moving rain event. And how do you like these cooler temperatures? - Meteorologist Cedric Haynes has our forecast.

Rebecca Cade is on the Sports desk tonight. She'll have recaps from McNeese and LSU.

We'll see you tonight following NFL's matchup between the Texans and Giants. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.
