Good morning!

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

A new angle in the Common Core fight emerges today. Governor Bobby Jindal files a lawsuit against the Obama administration, accusing it of illegally using federal grant money and regulations to force states to adopt the education standards. Look for this story at noon, and you can read more HERE.

Some folks in Alabama are dealing with a scary infestation of brown recluse spiders. They now have glue traps throughout their home, and they are catching dozens of the dangerous spiders a day – some in a three-year-old boy's toy box and bed! How are they dealing with this influx of creepy creatures, and how can you prevent the same problem in your home? Find out at noon, and you can read more HERE.

Parkinson's Disease patients can benefit from new physical and speech therapy. We'll show you how it's helping their day to day lives and may even slow the progression of the disease.

Plus, we'll show you a new way to protect your cell phone from thieves. One community is planning to require a “kill switch.” It will be the first of its kind legislation in the country.

Ben tells me we'll only get into the lower 90s today, with a possibility of a passing shower or thunderstorm. Those rain chances could get better as we head into the weekend. Check out Ben's live, local forecast at noon to get a look ahead and to see what's happening in the tropics. You can also check out current weather conditions HERE.

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

Have a great day everyone!
