Push for military strike authorization by Pres. Obama

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

*This week begins the big push by the Obama administration and the President himself to convince lawmakers to authorize a military strike in Syria.  We will have a look at how President Obama plans to convince a reluctant Congress to back him.

*We have new information on that bizarre story from Angola State Prison where a violent incident ends in gunfire at the prison gates.  Hear from the prison's warden about the events that unfolded and what led to one man being taken into custody.

*Scary moments at a fair in Connecticut.  18 people were injured when the swing ride lost power, dumping children on the ground.

*From 101 to 1, there were a couple of very special birthdays over the weekend in the Lake area.  Find out how Iowa's Ledia LeBlanc rang in her 101st birthday and what it takes to throw a one year celebration for quintuplets in Lake Charles!

*Do you have room in your home for a furry friend?  We're opening the Sunrise Pet Shop this morning to introduce you to a dog or cat up for adoption.  We'll also tell you about volunteer opportunities at the animal shelter if you want to pitch in for a great cause.

Make it a Sunrise day!
