Green light given on dredging for Port of LC

Good Wednesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at today's top stories:

*The website at the forefront of the Affordable Care Act has the Obama administration doing damage control.  We'll find out where that stands today and why more people are demanding that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius step down from her job.

*Legendary local pirate Jean Lafitte is the subject of a three-part learning series at a local library.  You'll hear what's in store and how you can take part.
