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

It's been 70 years since the U.S.S. Orleck was put into active service at the end of World War II, and for the last four years, it has served as a museum ship in Lake Charles. Today, volunteers from across the U.S. are in town to help restore the destroyer. KPLC's Erik Tyger will join us live from the Orleck for a look at what's being done. You can also learn more about the efforts HERE.

Abandoned properties in Jeff Davis Parish may soon be sold online. We'll explain how the police jury stands to profit from a new contract.

Plus, a British singer is looking to be the first to sing among the stars -- literally. At noon, find out why she wants to perform on the International Space Station.
    
Also, federal agents say they've uncovered a hidden bunker built by a convicted bank robber. Apparently, the only outward sign was a small hole in the ground covered by plywood.

In weather, we have another rainy day to contend with, as rain chances will hang around into the afternoon before tapering off this evening. What will tomorrow bring, and what about the weekend? Meteorologist Ben Terry will have the lowdown during his live, local forecast at noon. You can also access weather info 24/7 HERE.

Also at noon, a one-year-old poodle is getting a lot of looks these days. The dog's owner trained the little poodle to walk on his hind legs in a colorful outfit. It is quite something to see. So, if you can't wait until noon, check it out HERE.

Remember, if you're away from the TV, watch us live at http://bit.ly/1lCk0p5 or through the KPLC News and Weather Apps for Apple or Android devices.

Have a great day!
