Good morning!

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

We'll tell you about a Lake Charles man who has been arrested and accused of kidnapping a woman on Saturday. You can also read more HERE.

Also today, a former Sulphur Police officer made a plea in his case involving the shooting death of a dog. More on that story HERE.

A woman who survived a terrible bear mauling is talking about the incident. She says her near-fatal experience has made her a more determined person.

Plus, he's possibly the most adorable city leader in the country, but 5-year-old Mayor Bobby Tufts' term is up. We'll hear from him as he takes a look back at his time in office. You can also read more about it HERE.

Zack is in for Ben this week, and he tells me highs will once again top out in the low 90s by early this afternoon, but it will feel like it is over 100 degrees at times. The coastal storms will slowly work inland throughout the day today, bringing a chance for those hit or miss summertime downpours. What can we expect for the rest of our work week? And what about the tropics? Tune in at noon for Zack'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 on your mobile device.

Have a great day everyone!
