90,000 LA residents must find new health insurance

Happy Hump Day to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*More than 90,000 Louisiana residents must find new health insurance policies.  The State Department of Insurance says Obamacare is the reason.  We'll have a look at what to do next.

*Having a baby is supposed to be a joyous time, but for many moms, it can be one of their darkest times.  This morning, we have a very honest conversation with a mom that was once in the depths of postpartum depression.  I'll also tell you about counseling that is available locally, regardless of your ability to pay.

*We talk a lot about lakefront development, but some residents are saying it may be time to take a step back, especially when it comes to boathouses and piers.  We'll detail the proposed guidelines and restrictions being discussed.

*Testimony picks back up this morning in the trial of Jaime Day, the Lake Charles woman accused of abusing her step-son.  Find out about the dramatic testimony from this boy that is now 12 years old.

*Looking for a healthy start to your Thanksgiving holiday?  We'll tell you about the Turkey Trot in Lake Charles in a live interview with the Rotary Club and SOWELA.

Make it a Sunrise day!
