Hearings set over Common Core, tax holiday preview, traffic Town Hall

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

*Dates are set for two trials related to Common Core standards in Louisiana.  We'll tell you when a judge is expected to hear the arguments for and against the multi-state english and math standards.

*Louisiana'a back-to-school tax holiday begins tomorrow and many of those school supplies are eligible for state income tax deductions.  We'll explain how you can save money on everything from school supplies to tuition.

*The Westlake Police Department is preparing for a Town Hall meeting later tonight.  It will focus on law enforcement and traffic incident management plans for the upcoming industrial expansion.

*LSU fans have one more reason to brag about Death Valley.  The stadium is now topping the list as the most intimidating in college football.  Hear how the ranking came about!

*Area high school students can get a jump start on a college degree with the help of McNeese's dual enrollment program.  We'll have a live interview this morning with the university's community service and outreach director about how to be a part of this program and get into college even earlier.

Make it a Sunrise day!
