State wants lease of former Lacassine sugar cane syrup mill

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

*The state is looking to lease the site of a former sugar cane syrup mill near Lacassine.  Find out what the state hopes to do with the 22 acre site.

*A manhunt continues this morning after 31-year-old Jody Balach escaped from a work detail yesterday afternoon in Vernon Parish.  We'll share his description this morning so that you can be on the lookout.

*By the end of the week, we're supposed to find out exactly how many people have been able to sign up for health care through the government's troubled website.  Some early numbers are already in and they're low.  Hear about the congressional hearing to update lawmakers on efforts to fix the site.

*It's a cold morning here, but the big weather story worldwide remains the aftermath of that powerful typhoon that slammed the Philippines last week.  Find out how you can help people in desperate need of food, water and clothing.

*There are only 200 registered cases of Erdheim-Chester Disease in the world today.  It's the disease that took the life of Gary Brewer of DeRidder six years ago.  In a special Healthcast this morning, I talk to Gary's wife who is fighting for others to live against all odds.

Make it a Sunrise day!
