Brace for higher beef prices - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Brace for higher beef prices

Happy Thursday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*If you want beef for dinner, it's costing more to make it happen.  We'll take you to the McNeese State University Farm to hear what's behind the rising prices.

*A sex offender lawsuit is dismissed locally, getting the wheels in motion for a Lake Charles city ordinance that increases the registration fee for sex offenders.

*We have reaction and the latest details about the United States Postal Service's decision to end Saturday mail deliveries.

*President Obama's nominee to head the CIA goes before a senate panel today, just as the administration decided to release a classified memo justifying the use of drones to kill terror suspects overseas, even if they're U.S. citizens.

*The Merchant's Parade rolls through Lake Charles Friday night.  We'll have a live interview about what's in store.

Make it a Sunrise day!
