Good morning!

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

Authorities have made an arrest in the bomb scare that closed down the University of Louisiana at Lafayette campus last week. More on the investigation by Lafayette Police and the FBI is available HERE.

Vernon Parish Police Jurors will consider financially assisting the parish communications district, after 911 revenues have failed to keep up with the cost of maintaining it. Look for that story at noon, and read more about the issue HERE.

Do you have more grass to cut than time to do it? How about using goats for the job? We'll show you how a New Orleans area park has put the animals to work. More on that story HERE.

Speaking of enterprising animals, we'll also have the story of a Sahara Desert tortoise with a hunger for travel. Find out how he broke out of his home and took a 31 mile trip!

Ben tells me we'll have plenty of heat and humidity today with temperatures rising into the low 90s, but it will feel like it is between 103 and 105. So, be careful out there! What can we expect tomorrow? What about the latest tropical depression? Tune in at noon for Ben's live, local forecast for the answers. You can also check out the latest weather conditions HERE.

Remember, if you're away from the TV at noon you can always tune in to kplctv.com to watch us online and your mobile device.

Have a great day everyone!
