Food stamp program faces big changes

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

*One in five Louisiana residents relies on food stamps, but now the program is facing big changes.  Find out what that could mean for the amount of local people using shelters and food pantries.

*The Beauregard Parish School Board votes to join forces with other school boards across the state.  We'll have an inside look at last night's meeting and tell you about the unanimous decision dealing with dollars for school supplies and curriculum.

*Pit bulls are legal again in Welsh.  Find out what led to the lifting of the pit bull ban in the town.

*There is no greater pain for a parent than the loss of a child.  It's been 23 years since a Sulphur mom buried her two-day-old son.  This morning Cindi Broussard Rust opens up about overcoming the grief, sadness and finding hope while remembering Spencer.

*Is your lawn crunchy yet?  Meteorologist Ben Terry says our rain chances are promising for the weekend!

Make it a Sunrise day!
