Good morning!

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

A fire at an apartment complex in Iowa. KPLC's Monica Grimaldo will have a live report at noon. You can also read the story HERE as it develops.

Common Core remains a hot topic and today the state Superintendent of Education, John White, is addressing the next steps following recent rulings in litigation involving the Common Core and associated assessments. You can read more about this morning's news conference on the topic HERE.

The three-day qualifying period opened today and will run through Friday. Contenders are putting up qualifying fees and signing paperwork to run for a variety of state and local offices. KPLC's Theresa Schmidt will have more information at noon and on later editions of KPLC 7 News.

We'll see how one company hopes to use "pedal power" for more than just commuting. It's a plan for capturing the energy produced by bicycles to create clean water.

Plus, he may be man's best friend, but he's also a best friend to his fellow dogs! We'll show you how a heroic canine is hailed a hero for a dog-to-dog blood transfusion.

Ben tells me there's not much change to the weather pattern, and that means more widely scattered showers and thunderstorms today. Some of those storms could be capable of producing heavy downpours with intense cloud-to-ground lightning. Can we we expect more of the same tomorrow? What about the tropics? Ben says there are a couple of tropical waves that bear watching. He'll have news on all of that during his live, local forecast at noon, and you can always access the latest weather info 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!
