Local students heading to D.C. for pro-life rally

Happy Monday to you!  Britney Glaser here on this special day of the year, remembering the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

*On today's Sunrise, we'll have details on area events to commemorate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., including a parade that will roll through Lake Charles this morning.

*Youth groups from the Diocese of Lake Charles are getting ready for a trip to Washington, D.C.  They are going to take part in the national pro-life rally and the March for Life to mark the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade.  We'll have a life interview on site this morning.

*A non-partisan government watchdog group is responding to Governor Bobby Jindal's plan to get rid of state income taxes in favor of higher sales taxes.  They say it could greatly affect the poor, retirees and the disabled, but those in support disagree.

*A Lake Charles man remains jailed this morning, accused of beating his girlfriend and killing her dog.  Investigators say the man beat her for several hours in a drunken rage, before turning his aggression on her small dog.

*Is college worth it?  For most, that answer is yes.  But for others, it's not such an easy answer because of the high cost and tough job hunt.  We'll look into the pros and cons and see if collegiate trends are changing.

*After a beautiful weekend, the big question is whether or not the nice weather will last any longer.  Meteorologist Ben Terry will have the answer!

Make it a Sunrise day!
