Good morning!

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

It's the beginning of the end for the old Matt Walker Stadium at Sulphur High. We'll have a live report at noon explaining what's happening now as they prepare to demolish it. Do you have fond memories of the stadium? If so, you can send your old photos and more HERE.

Exciting news for a woman from Iowa. Daina Daigle was up for an Emmy… and guess what? She got it! Look for that story at noon, and you can read all about it HERE.

A 9-year-old girl says she knew exactly what to do when fire broke out in her home. Now she's credited with saving her family.

Plus, a woman turns a friend's accident into a pet ambulance service. It's the first of its kind to partner with a fire department.

Ben is back, and he tells me to expect things to heat up today with temperatures in the 90s by lunch. After noon, you can look for some showers and storms to being popping up through early evening. Some of those storms could produce brief, heavy downpours. What about the rest of our work week? Tune in at noon for Ben's live, local forecast for the answer. 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!
