Firefighter contracts, Bible as state book, drug-free youth - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Firefighter contracts, Bible as state book, drug-free youth

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

*Lake Charles firefighters have worked without a contract for more than 2 1/2 years.  We'll tell you the progress with working out a compromise with city officials.

*Would you support a move to make the King James Version of the Bible the official book of Louisiana?  That's being considered by state legislators and the bill is now set to go to the house floor.

*A local town is being sued over its ban on pit bulls.  The lawsuit alleges that the town's ordinance is unconstitutional because it allows the town to seize and identify a pit bull without any type of hearing.  We'll share the details of the suit and find out how long the city has to respond.

*Have you been feeling under the weather?  From allergies to chronic sinusitis and Type A flu, I'll tell you what's going around this week in Southwest Louisiana.

*Today's #TBT is Easter traditions!  Share your Easter pictures and memories on our 7News Sunrise facebook page.

*Several local students are heading to Washington, D.C. to give a presentation on living drug-free.  We'll have a live interview to tell you about this movement called "IDFY."

Make it a Sunrise day!

    A few scattered showers this afternoonA few scattered showers this afternoon

    We will start today with partly cloudy skies, building up for scattered thunderstorms later this afternoon. Rain chances are up to 40% today, so we should not see as much rain as yesterday. Most of the rain will come to an end by the late afternoon. After sunset, rain chances will go back down to zero percent overnight with mostly clear skies. In between any showers, we will have warm temperatures for southwest Louisiana.
