FAA to announce control tower closures today

Happy Monday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise beginning at 4:30 A.M.:

*Final word comes today from the FAA on which airport control towers will close.  It's something airports in Southwest Louisiana will be paying attention to because of the sequester.

*The investigation into Friday's deadly helicopter crash that killed three men in Cameron Parish continues today.  We'll update the case as it stands today.

*We've told you about budget cuts forcing the suspension of the federal tuition assistance program for the military.  Find out why Louisiana National Guard members are safe.

*New this morning: a very disturbing story involving two parents that allegedly locked up their autistic child in a cage for hours.  We'll tell you how the discovery was made and the criminal charges they're facing.

*It's going to be unseasonably warm today.  Meteorologist Ben Terry will have your work-week forecast.

Make it a Sunrise day!
