Good morning!

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

President Obama holds a news conference today – touching on a wide range of topics including his signature health care law. He says it's already benefiting most Americans, even if they don't know it. We'll have more on what he had to say at noon.

Entergy Gulf States Louisiana signs a big contract with Sempra Energy's Cameron LNG. We'll tell you what that means for the company.

Also today, eating health food is a good idea at any age. At least one study says eating too much processed food may even lower I-Q scores in young children.

Plus, a U.S. Marine is being called a hero after he saves a woman from being trampled by a bull. The entire thing was caught on tape and we'll show it to you at noon.

Ben says temperatures will hold in the 70s today thanks to all the clouds. He expects a good coverage of showers and storms to develop during the afternoon. But what about tonight and the rest of our work week? Get the answers during Ben's live, local forecast at noon, and you can always access the latest weather information HERE.

Remember, you can always watch us online at and on air. We hope you join us, and have a great day!
