Sesame Street Live! joins Sunrise crew

Good Tuesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*The characters from Sesame Street Live! are getting a head start on their performance at the Lake Charles Civic Center today by joining the Sunrise crew!  Wake up your kiddos and tune in for a fun interview with these furry friends.

*A boil advisory is in effect this morning in parts of Beauregard Parish because of a broken line.  We'll detail who's affected.

*A kidnapping victim in Lafayette is recovering this morning in the hospital.  Now, authorities are working to determine if family members of the victim were justified in killing the suspect.

*The Coast Guard has given up its search for a missing ship crewman that went overboard about 60 miles southwest of Port Fourchon over the weekend.  

*I have a special Healthcast this morning part of a series you can see all week called "Against All Odds."  Our first story takes us to Beauregard Parish, where four generations of women in one family have had cancer.  These women aren't the only ones fighting the disease, their female cousins and aunts are, too - stumping researchers.

*Are you feeling the chill that's returning to the area?  Meteorologist Ben Terry is tracking today's cold front and will tell us just how low the mercury will drop today.

Make it a Sunrise day!
