Mardi Gras Boardwalk plans move forward

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

*The Mardi Gras Boardwalk project in Lake Charles moves forward.  This morning you will hear from city officials about the work being done behind the scenes to bring this huge project into reality.

*As the government shutdown enters day three, concerns build in Southwest Louisiana.  It has to do with several federally funded programs and projects.  Will we see a big impact in the short term?  We will get that answer today.

*Agent Orange has long been believed to have impacted the health of Vietnam veterans.  There is a town hall meeting scheduled for later this month to address these concerns.  Find out how you can take part in this event.

*A group of bigfoot enthusiasts show never before seen video that they say proves bigfoot is real!  You'll see what the "Sasquatch Genome Project" in Texas is doing to dispel a legendary myth.

*The smooth sounds of jazz will fill the Sunrise studio this morning!  We have a special treat in store for you with saxophonist, Mickey Smith.  He'll be performing live and telling us about "Music With a Mission."

Make it a Sunrise day!
