City leaders sign off on Mardi Gras Boardwalk

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

*It's a done deal: Lake Charles city leaders sign the final document allowing the Mardi Gras Boardwalk project to move forward.  So what's the projected timeline?  We'll talk about that this morning.

*You may remember the story of a Jennings man - Eddie O'Connor - who reached out to 7News when two of his horses were killed.  He now says they were poisoned.

*The number of Louisiana students scoring high enough on the ACT to get into college jumps by nearly 20 percent.  We look into what's behind the surge.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry has a preview of this weekend's forecast.  Will we see rain?  He'll have that answer.

Make it a Sunrise day!
