Good Wednesday morning to you! Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's ahead on today's Sunrise:
*Several local agencies in Calcasieu Parish decided to use future casino proceeds to help fund the I-210/Cove Lane project. The parish school board won't be one of them. We'll take you inside last night's meeting where that decision was made.
*The cardinals are meeting at the Vatican right now to select a new pope. We'll explain when the votes are expected to come in today.
*There are a few housekeeping items before developer Roger Landry can close the deal on the old Sears retail site in downtown Lake Charles. Find out what's next to keep the project moving forward.
*The man connected to the deadly shooting at The Keg Nightclub in Lake Charles over the weekend is now in jail. We'll have details on his arrest, plus information out of Acadia Parish for a wanted fugitive there.
Make it a Sunrise day!
