Good Tuesday morning to you! Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:
*Plans to put a hotel at the Lake Charles Civic Center and turn it into a true convention center are still alive, but the means to finance it will have to go back before voters. Hear why city leaders are giving this proposal one last shot.
*Members of the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education are touring some area schools today throughout Calcasieu Parish. The goal is to better understand the challenges schools face on a local level.
*State Attorney General Buddy Caldwell says those who took advantage of the recent food stamp glitch will not be prosecuted. That has U.S. Senator David Vitter speaking out about future benefits for food stamp abusers.
*A jury is seated and opening statements are scheduled to begin this morning in the Jaime Day case. She's the Lake Charles woman accused of abusing her then nine-year-old stepson back in 2010.
*We'll have a live interview in the Sunrise studio this morning with Eligha Guillory about the 2013 Business Summit and Showcase coming up Thursday evening in the Lake Charles Civic Center.
*Topping national news this morning: the gunman who opened fire at a New Jersey mall late last night has been found dead. We'll have the latest information on this developing story.
