Starks boil advisory, missing shelter pets and Welsh speeders

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

*A boil advisory is still in effect for those living in the Starks area, including Starks High School.  We'll tell you what led to a water supply system breakdown and what's being done to repair it today.

*U.S. Senator David Vitter of Louisiana introduces a bill to require food stamp recipients to show a valid photo ID at the register.  It's part of an effort to prevent fraud.  Find out what spurred this action and why Vitter is pushing this legislation.

*Several animals are stolen from a Shreveport area animal shelter and the teenaged thieves are caught on tape.  Six Pit Bulls are missing, as well as a cat, vaccination drugs and several pounds of dog food.

*Residents in Welsh are split over a new ticket system for speeders along I-10.  We'll tell you how speeders won't get pulled over for breaking the law, but they can expect a ticket in the mail.

*Several people in Southwest Louisiana have died as a result of the flu this season.  In my Healthcast you'll hear what's making this flu season so severe and the strain of flu that's sickening younger people.

*It's Throwback Thursday and today we are throwing it back to our favorite game shows!  From Supermarket Sweep to Press Your Luck, we'll share our favorites - but we want to hear from you, too.  Let us know your favorite throwback game on our Sunrise facebook page.

Make it a Sunrise day!
