Black dust still an issue for area residents

Good Tuesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's ahead on today's Sunrise:

*It's a story we first told you about in February - a local industrial company polluting a Lake Charles neighborhood with black dust.  Residents say the problem is ongoing with no solution in sight.  See what they're calling a nuisance and concern.

*A $19,000 reward is being offered for more clues in the disappearance of New Orleans school teacher, Terrilynn Monette.  She has not been since since March 2nd. 

*When a McNeese State University graphic arts professor and artist was given the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, he feared that his days of drawing would end because of tremoring hands.  I'll tell you how he's using his disease today to find the funny side of the disease in "The Dopamine Chronicles."

*A fight in Baton Rouge leaves two police officers with stab wounds and a suspect dead.  Find out what happened in this deadly incident.

*Jubilation in Kentucky as the University of Louisville wins the NCAA championship!  We'll have game highlights are reaction after the team took down Michigan.

Make it a Sunrise day!
