Sunrise crew goes red for National Wear Red Day

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

*Today is National Wear Red Day to bring attention to the number one killer of women: heart disease.  Our Sunrise crew is wearing red and the Southwest Louisiana chapter of the American Heart Association is hoping you'll go red today, too!

*President Obama will sign the farm bill into law today.  We'll tell you how it will affect the food stamp program and cash subsidies for farmers.

*New polling shows an ongoing shift when it comes to illegal immigration.  Find out what Americans are saying about the pathway to citizenship.

*McNeese State University will hold a free lecture about Mardi Gras, Shakespeare, Spenser and Milton in 19th century New Orleans.  It's happening tonight and we'll tell you how you can be a part of it.

*Looking for something unique to do this weekend?  The zombie apocalypse will have people running for their lives tomorrow at Camp Edgewood!  Runners will have a belt of flags and run through zombie filled woods trying to escape. 

*Outdoor guide Hal McMillin is joining us this morning to talk about Sportsman's Paradise!  From snow goose hunting to getting your gear ready for spring fishing - he'll have the information you need to enjoy the great outdoors.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry says we've got a bitterly cold morning in store - and rain chances are on the increase this weekend.  He'll have your pinpoint forecast.

Make it a Sunrise day!
