Sequestration Deadline

Hello everyone. This is Cynthia Arceneaux from the KPLC Newsroom. There are less than 48 hours before the so-called "sequestration" takes place if no deal is made in Washington on government spending. Coming up today on Live at Five, we'll break it down for you and show you how one particular program for the elderly would be affected if no agreement is reached.

Funeral arrangments have been made for the Jennings couple who was found dead in their home over the weekend. Services for Charles Williams, Jr. and Katrenna Segura Williams are set for 11am on Saturday at the Simien-Lewis Funeral Home in Jennings.

@@And a little bit of entertainment history on tonight's Hometown Patriot. An Allen Parish native is writing a biography of Louisiana governor Jimmie Davis. John Bridges will have a visit with the writer and look into how the singing governor was able to merge his two careers of music and politics. Those stories and Wade Hampton will let us know how cold we can expect it to get tonight. Join us for Live At Five and 7news at Six.
