Controversy surrounding expected resignation of Oberlin mayor

Good Thursday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*The man in the middle of Oberlin's financial crisis, Mayor Rick Smith, will resign.  The Allen Parish Clerk of Court confirms he has submitted his resignation to the Secretary of State's Office.  This comes the same week that a special meeting was held to address major issues with the town's finances.

*Talk of Governor Bobby Jindal running for Vice President of the United States is coming up again.  Senator John McCain says he would like to see him run along with Governor Chris Christie on the 2016 Republican ticket.  What does Jindal think about this?  Hear his response this morning.

*This week's cold snap did not last long enough to put a dent in the mosquito population.  Find out how these pests can survive below frozen surfaces.

*A dream comes true for a Lake Charles teen with cerebral palsy.  He is joining us in the 6:00 half-hour to talk about meeting Denver Broncos star, Peyton Manning.  The dream was made a reality thanks to Louisiana State Police's Grant a Wish program.  We'll tell you how you can support the cause at an upcoming fundraiser.

Make it a Sunrise day!
