SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) - Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News @ Noon.

The creative arts team at Moss Bluff middle school is preparing to present a series of anti-bullying skits to spread awareness. The first happens a little after noon today. KPLC's Monica Grimaldo is there and will have a live report. Read more HERE.

The nature of the construction industry is changing, and the demand for employment is growing. Here along the Louisiana Gulf Coast, construction companies are already competing for top talent in a tight marketplace. Look for more at noon.
  
Plus, properly trained animals can have a calming effect on nursing home residents. At noon, we'll see how a blind golden retriever is getting as much as he's giving.

A cloudy, dreary, ultimately rainy day for our Friday. Will this continue thru the weekend? Meteorologist Ben Terry will let you know during his live, local forecast at noon. Check out the forecast HERE.

Remember, if you're not near a TV at noon, you can watch us live on our mobile apps.

The KPLC 7News app is available for Apple, Android and Blackberry devices.

Have a great day, and a wonderful weekend!
