Day 2 of boil advisory, festival kicks off, teacher fights for school

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

*It's day two of the city-wide boil water advisory in Sulphur.  We'll tell you what led to the big problem and the status of the repair.

*The principal of Ralph Wilson Elementary in Lake Charles hopes to get her school off a proposed list of closures.  It's to help close a $10 million budget shortfall.  Hear from Principal Wynetta Proctor about what she says makes her school special.

*A warning this morning from the Louisiana State Attorney General's Office has to do with an e-mail that's actually a virus.  We'll tell you what to look for in this e-mail that looks like it's from a court clerk.

*The Louisiana Fur & Wildlife Festival kicks off today in downtown Cameron.  Find out what's in store tonight from live music and food to tomorrow's gumbo kick-off, trapping and skinning and skeet shooting.

*It's a foggy start to a Friday.  Meteorologist Ben Terry has a look at your visibility and the rain chances for this weekend that are on the increase.

Make it a Sunrise day!

    A modern-day 'Sandlot' comes to Lake Charles

    Sunday, May 28 2017 7:54 PM EDT2017-05-28 23:54:49 GMT

    At the David household, there's something special going on in the backyard.

    “One day in the backyard we came out here and decided to start playing around,” said Dylan David, who started a Wiffle ball league with his friends.
