Rosepine Volunteer Fire Fighters on Strike

Good Afternoon,

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

The Rosepine Volunteer Fire Department is shut down until further notice. Volunteer fire fighters walked out on Tuesday. They tell KPLC's Erica Bivens they won't return until they can get updated equipment. She'll have the story tonight at Six.

And more than 1,000 Calcasieu School Board employees and their families got moving on their path to wellness. We're there for the School Board's first 5K & Fun Run.

Also it was a celebration of what makes us different at Lock Park. We'll show the best of the International Family Day in the Park.  

Plus, from Xboxes to Wiis, gamers teamed up with Christus St. Patrick's Hospital and the Children's Miracle Network for a good cause. KPLC's Monica Grimaldo will introduce you to some of the real winners who will benefit from the event.

I hope everyone is outside enjoying this amazing weather. Meteorologist Cedric Haynes has your forecast with a reminder that we fall back tonight – and gain an extra hour.

And the Pokes take on Southeastern Louisiana University. KPLC's Rebecca Cade will have a live preview from Cowboy Stadium.

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