Hello everyone,

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're covering today on KPLC 7 News.

First off, I have a reminder for our viewers. Due to NBC's coverage of the Olympic Games, we have a change in schedules. We will bring you up-to-the minute headlines and weather during our Connections at Midday show at 11:53 a.m. We will follow with more news and complete live weather information online and on our mobile app starting at our regular time of noon. Here's a link for that live stream:

A 39-year-old Vernon Parish substitute teacher faces charges of inappropriate sexual relations with a 17-year-old student. Look for that story at noon, and you can read more HERE.

We'll also tell you about some help being offered to dozens of residents of a local trailer park that's being shut down. You can learn more HERE.

Ben tells me clouds will continue to hang around today – limiting a lot of the sunshine. Despite the clouds, rain chances remain less than 20 percent today and tomorrow. A cold front comes in later in the week, what will that mean for the forecast? Check out Ben's live, local forecast during our Midday update and during our live online broadcast at noon for the answer.

During this time when we're displaced by the Winter Olympics and Days of Our Lives, we will continue to bring you the latest news of the day in a couple of different ways. We hope you join us both on-air during the Midday Show and online HERE.

Have a great day everyone!
