1,000+ signatures reached in Ft. Polk troops petition

Happy Wednesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*A petition against the troop reduction at Fort Polk reaches more than a thousand signatures.  Later this week, those concerned about the reductions can attend a public meeting.  We'll share those details, plus information on an upcoming meeting in Washington, D.C.

*The murder trial of Wilson Locke resumes this morning before Judge Clayton Davis.  Locke pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in the killing of his step-daughter on May 4, 2005.

*The divided high school football playoffs, the new format, had the attention of a select group of lawmakers.  It is known as Proposition 18 and it passed in January, creating separate championships for public, private, charter and magnet schools.

*Preventing military suicides is on Congress' agenda this afternoon.  We'll have a preview of the hearing to be held on suicide prevention.

*Lung cancer is typically linked to smokers, but it still common in those who have never picked up a cigarette.  I'll talk to one Lake Charles woman in the fight for her life against the number one cancer killer and tell you how to help the search for new medications.

*SOWELA is hosting an open house on Tuesday, March 19th.  We'll have a live interview about what's in store.

Make it a Sunrise day!
