Loud boom investigation, diploma changes, Mardi Gras rundown

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

*Several people in the Sulphur area heard a loud boom last night.  Sulphur firefighters investigated an area near Cities Service Highway a few blocks north of I-10.  We'll tell you what they are reporting and where the investigation goes today.

*Changes could be coming to the state's career-track diploma.  This is intended for high school students who do not intend to go to a four-year college.  Find out what Superintendent of Education John White is proposing.

*It's Mardi Gras time!  We will have a live interview in our 6:00 half-hour with the full rundown of Mardi Gras events from today through Fat Tuesday across Southwest Louisiana.

*From a Downton Abbey lecture to Kenyan acrobats, this season's Banners program is packed with fabulous events.  You don't want to miss a live segment previewing what's in store beginning next week.

*Stomach bugs and lingering flu viruses have some local folks feeling under the weather.  In a new segment called, "What's Going Around," I will report what local hospitals and clinics are treating in the highest numbers and how you can stay healthy.

*It's a chilly morning, but Ben Terry tells us we have a lot of sunshine heading our way!  He'll have the pinpoint forecast that also includes some rain chances as we move closer to Mardi Gras.

Make it a Sunrise day!
