Good Monday morning to you! Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:
*11 years ago this week, the Space Shuttle Columbia broke apart in the skies above Western Louisiana and East Texas. See what's being done to honor the lives of the seven astronauts killed in the explosion.
*We are still waiting for an autopsy report for 27-year-old Lacie Fontenot, whose body was found in Lake Arthur. She was discovered face down in a shallow ditch Friday on the west side of Lake Arthur.
*Lieutenant Governor Jay Dardenne will be a McNeese State University today talking about ghosts of Louisiana's political past. It's part of the Sage series and we'll tell you how you can be a part of the lecture series.
*How does a new Ryan Street exit ramp in downtown Lake Charles sound? That will be up for discussion tonight at the Downtown Development Authority meeting. We'll have a preview of what's in store.
*If you travel on Choupique Road, make plans to take another route. Starting at 7:00 A.M., the road will be shut down for the replacement of a bridge. We'll tell you how long this closure is expected to last.
