Fate of E-cigs, saltwater barrier hours, MLK speech reenactment

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

*A lot of questions still surround e-cigarettes like second-hand smoke effects and whether or not to ban them from public places.  There's a proposal in the state legislature to regulate them and that topic is already being debated locally by the Lake Charles City Council.

*There is a plan to extend the hours of the saltwater barrier.  Find out how it will be funded and how much longer the barrier will be open.

*McNeese State University continues its celebration of Black History Month.  Tonight, an impersonator of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. will perform an inspirational reenactment of the famous "I Have A Dream" speech.  We'll tell you how you can check out the free performance.

*The right lane of I-210 eastbound from the Prien Lake bridge to Nelson Road will be closed tonight at 8:00.  Find out how long that closure will last and what is being done with the Cove Lane interchange project connected to it.

*It's #Throwback Thursday and today we are throwing it back to our favorite childhood Disney movies.  Be a part of the conversation by sharing your fave on our KPLC 7News Sunrise facebook page.

Make it a Sunrise day!
