Job security now in limbo for local Aeroframe employees

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

*Job security at Aeroframe in Lake Charles could be in limbo, after a big decision by the Calcasieu Parish School Board last night voting down a tax extension that Aeroframe has not had to pay for 10 years. 

*City of Lake Charles officials say they're just days away from closing on the old Sears retail site downtown.  We'll tell you where the project is expected to go from here.

*The countdown is on!  Tomorrow morning, NBC's Al Roker will broadcast live from the Carlyss Fire Department, recognizing Lori Primeaux-Coleman and area firefighters.  We talked to Lori about what she calls a "band of brothers" and the bond between emergency responders across the area.

*No doubt you've heard of the "Ethel Precht Breast Cancer Walk," but you might not be as familiar with the foundation behind it, functioning 365 days a year.  I'll tell you about some of the free resources available for people affected by breast cancer.

Make it a Sunrise day!
