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

*An Oberlin family looks for answers and accountability from the town after a 12-year-old is bitten by a neighbor's dog.  Find out why the Courvilles say the punishment does not fit the crime.

*Lake Charles police are asking anyone who witnessed a fight at On The Rocks in Lake Charles over the weekend to come forward and speak to them.  The man reportedly trying to break up a fight was struck and has now been declared brain dead.

*Fears of a rare brain-damaging amoeba found in the St. Bernard Parish water system has prompted school officials there to take extra precautions.  This morning, you'll hear what's being done to keep school kids safer.

*A report from U.N. weapons inspectors finally goes to the United Nations Security Council weeks after the apparent chemical weapons attack in Syria.  We'll tell you what the international community is hoping the response will be today.

*Crew members are working to put the finishing touches on the newly revamped studio for "Today."  We have a preview before the show starts at 7:00 this morning.  You'll see the new features, as well as learn more about the new addition to the show, Carson Daly.

Make it a Sunrise day!
