Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.
Jeff Davis Parish voters will decide on a sales tax to fund the maintenance and operation of a new parish jail. We'll tell you what the tax proposal involves and when it will appear on the ballot.
Also today, it's a dangerous trend – kids and teens snorting "Smarties" -- yes, the candy. Doctors say it could cause serious health problems. Hear what they have to say at noon and you can read more HERE.
Plus, someone caught a police officer in the act – taking a photo while the officer was offering help to a homeless man. That officer has been getting a lot of attention ever since.
In weather, Ben tells me we can expect gusty winds and cloudy skies as a cold front comes through today. We may see a few showers by this afternoon, and by tonight, look for sharply colder temperatures along with the threat of a light wintry mix. Ben is saying it is possible to see sleet, freezing rain, even a bit of snow, but he stresses any precipitation will be very light. At this hour, it's still a bit tricky to say exactly what's going to happen. Look for the latest info during Ben's live, local forecast, and remember you can always access weather details HERE.
