Millions more in funding for National Hurricane Museum project

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

*We are one step closer to seeing the plans for the National Hurricane Museum and Science Center in Lake Charles become a reality.  The project itself will cost up to $70 million.  Last night, the Port of Lake Charles came to an agreement to give the museum $3 million.

*A young woman from Sulphur that moved to Thailand to rescue young girls from prostitution is cleared of any wrongdoing after being investigated by Thai authorities.  We'll update you on that story and hear from Kayleigh Stansel's family.

*A new dog park is opening in Kinder today.  It's called "Lucky Paws" and we'll have the details on the grand opening celebration.

*Wall Street went wild after hearing car sales are up, consumer confidence is up and there's positive news about the housing market.  Find out if that good news is expected to last and what it means for your bottom line.

*More than half of the class of 2013 has an average of more than $35,000 in college-related debt - the bulk of that is student loans.  We'll tell you a way to lower the interest on that debt.

Make it a Sunrise day!
