Avenue of Flags and Veterans Day programs

Good Monday morning to you and happy Veterans Day from all of us at KPLC!  Britney Glaser here with a look at some of today's headlines:

*You can honor our nation's veterans today by participating in patriotic activities in your town.  In Lake Charles, the Avenue of Flags at Orange Grove-Graceland Cemetery will have 800 flags displayed today.  In Vinton, there's a program at Vinton City Hall and we'll also tell you about special ceremonies in Crowley.

*The Calcasieu Parish School Board is asking voters in South Lake Charles for support in this Saturday's election.  There's a property tax proposal to enhance security at schools, update technology and improve traffic conditions in front of some busy schools.

*It's a desperate situation right now for many people in the Philippines.  Typhoon Haiyan has left a path of destruction like nothing people have ever seen before.  See the damage firsthand today and hear how the United States is helping with humanitarian efforts.

*From fad diets to famous dogs, Americans spend billions of dollars avoiding certain foods or favoring certain pets because of allergies.  But experts say they may be feeding an allergy fear that science can't back up.  We'll debunk some common allergy myths.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry says a major cool down is in store this week, but it won't last long!  Get your pinpoint forecast that details when that front will arrive in SWLA.

Make it a Sunrise day!
