Pres. Obama to address problems with new health plan

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

*Later this morning, President Obama will give a speech in the Rose Garden to address problems with the rollout of his new health plan.  Americans were supposed to be able to sign up for insurance starting October 1st, but the website crashed and hasn't yet been fully repaired.

*If you need help signing up for the online insurance marketplace, there is one-on-one help available.  We'll tell you how you can set up an appointment with one of the Southwest Louisiana Area Health Education Center's Navigators for Healthy Louisiana.

*Bad news for Tiger fans!  LSU says it is raising football and baseball ticket prices for the first time in three years.

*We about six weeks away from the end of hurricane season with 11 named storms, but only two hurricanes.  We'll take a look at the science behind this year's slower hurricane season.

*Speaking of weather, how are you liking this crisp forecast?  Meteorologist Ben Terry will tell us how long this fabulous weather will last in his pinpoint forecast.

Make it a Sunrise day!
