Live look into Nelson Mandela's memorial service

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

*Nelson Mandela's memorial service is happening right now in South Africa.  We will join NBC's special live coverage this morning to see the amazing show of support for this monumental leader.

*An East Texas community reacts to a brutal hatchet attack at a Wal-Mart.  Hear from witnesses this morning who saw the attack unfold.

*Beauregard Parish Police Jurors want to change the way sales tax money is allocated.  We'll tell you how they want to shift money to afford rising insurance premiums for employees.

*Louisiana sees an increase in flu activity.  That's according to the Centers for Disease Control's weekly flu surveillance report.  So what does that mean if you haven't gotten your flu shot?  We'll have that answer this morning.

*The Black and Gold Sax Quartet from Sulphur High School joins us live with some sounds of the season.  They are helping us with our final push to get toys and food for KPLC's Community Christmas/Salvation Army Angel Tree.

Make it a Sunrise day!
