Good morning!

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

Kinder Police Chief Gary Pelican has been charged with theft and malfeasance in office, after an investigation by state police revealed that he was using town credit cards to fuel vehicles owned by his family members. You can read more on the investigation HERE.

Tattoos are coming under fire in the military. The Army is working to ban tattoos below the knee or elbow. We'll take a look at why this has become an issue.

An incredible dog rescue story from one of our Raycom sister stations today. While we've had some cold temperatures here, it's nothing like the sub-zero stuff in Indiana. We'll show you how little Peanut survived after his stomach, feet and tail had frozen to the floor of his pen. You can see the whole story at noon and read more HERE.

Also today, they're some of America's favorite little treats, so why is there a push to make a change to M&M's? Some parents say the coloring makes their kids hyperactive, and they're even launching a petition drive.

Plus, what are the chances? A husband and wife in Arizona each got a hole in one during the same game.

In weather, Ben tells me we're in the midst of a warming trend with highs ranging from the upper 40's to lower 50's today as the clouds increase. What are our rain chances as we get closer to the weekend?  Ben will have the answer during his live, local forecast at noon.

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