*There's no excuse for boredom this weekend across Southwest Louisiana.  We'll tell you what's in store from the Downtown Lake Charles Crawfish Festival to DeQuincy Railroad Days, the Westlake Fest and more!

*We'll look more deeply this morning into the billboard that has caused a stir in Lake Charles, demanding that Sasol choose between Louisiana or Iran's terrorist regime.  Find out who put up the billboard and the controversy behind it.

*Two new courses being offered for area students will help fill the gap for industry openings in plant process technology and industrial instrumentation.

*We'll be cooking brunch in the Sunrise Kitchen today with Beth Dawdy ahead of the Women's Commission Fall Conference that is always a popular event.

*Is fishing on your agenda for the weekend?  Outdoor guide, Hal McMillin, will update us on area waterways.  Meteorologist Ben Terry will also let us know the all important weekend forecast.
