Man's best friend helping soldier adjust to life after war

Good Evening,

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

A local animal rescue group is making more than just a match. We'll show you how they've trained one of man's best friends to help one of America's heroes adjust to life after the war. KPLC's Haley Rush has this story.

And for all the oak trees the storms have taken away from Grand Chenier, new life and trees are returning to the area. KPLC's Erica Bivens was there as the group "Acorns of Hope" got to work to restore what's been lost.

And not everyone can travel for a high school football playoff game, especially if it's more than three hours away. We'll show you how local high school broadcast students teamed up with other future broadcasters from across the state to bring the game to a larger audience.

Also, if you're like me – I was pleasantly surprised by the cooler weather this morning – especially since it was rather warm last night. And, it's only just begun to get cold according to Meteorologist Cedric Haynes. He'll have all the details in his forecast.

We hope you'll join us tonight at Six for these stories and much more. Until then, we're always on at
