Good Tuesday morning to you! Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's ahead on today's Sunrise:
*For the second year in a row, the Baton Rouge metro area leads the nation in the most HIV cases per capita. New Orleans is close to it on the list. We'll talk about what's being done to raise awareness about this epidemic.
*Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's deputies continue the search for a suspected killer in a weekend night club shooting.
*The process to select a new pope gets underway in the Vatican today. We'll have a report on what's in store and when we could learn who the new leader of the Catholic church will be.
*We have comments from Westlake city officials this morning over the state audit that says the mayor may have violated state law.
*The effects of the sequester are being felt in lots of ways, including the funding cuts for college education with military members. We'll talk to one Louisiana National Guard serviceman about that today.
