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.
