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

A former Mermentau Police Chief is in jail following a drug arrest. It happened early this morning on Grace Street in Jennings. We'll have the story at noon, and you can read more HERE.

After at least four years of ample access to the cafeteria or takeout in the dorm, meals for new grads can be a little more challenging. At noon, we'll show you how to prepare easy and healthy meals on an entry-level budget.

Plus, a Vietnam veteran has run more than 58,000 miles to honor the memory of those who have been held as prisoners of war or deemed missing in action. Look for his story at noon.

In weather, a very stormy morning gives way to minimal rain chances this afternoon. However, one or two very isolated showers could develop later in the day. What can we expect tonight and tomorrow? Meteorologist Ben Terry will have the answers during his live, local forecast at noon. You can also access weather info 24/7 through our weather apps for Apple and Android Devices.

Have a great day!
