Price is Right: We talk to some of this weekend's big winners

Good Evening,

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

From fixing some extreme traffic conditions around Prien Lake Elementary, to upgrades to technology and security – voters in South Lake Charles' district 34 will be asked to support a proposed tax by the Calcasieu Parish School Board. KPLC's Haley Rush explains.

A Montana man is on a mission to show his support for veterans by taking a walk across America. KPLC's Monica Grimaldo has this story.

And in case you missed it… we'll show you how Southwest Louisiana honored veterans this weekend, including the unveiling of the Lt. Douglas Fournet Memorial on the Lakefront.

Also it's the story everyone is talking about this weekend – The Price is Right! KPLC's Gerron Jordan shows you how SWLA waited to hear those three words: "Come on Doooownnn!" He talks with some of this weekend's big winners.

If you like the cooler temperatures, you're really going to like Cedric's forecast for the week. He's in tonight with all the details.

Rebecca Cade is also on the Sports desk. She'll have the high school football playoff brackets. Plus, McNeese and LSU highlights.

We hope you'll join us tonight following the Saints and Cowboys matchup. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.
