"This is Home" tour heads to Beauregard Parish with Sunrise team

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

*Today is the second installment of our live newscasts from each of the parishes we serve.  This week, John Bridges and I will be in DeRidder to celebrate the rich history of Beauregard Parish as part of our 60th anniversary "This is Home" tour.  We would love to have you meet us at the Beauregard Parish Museum in downtown DeRidder!

*Our live guests this morning include James Hanchey, who will talk about the wonderful exhibits at the Beauregard Museum, Lori Darbonne with the Beauregard Tourist Commission, Misty Clanton with the City of DeRidder, and Eva Porter with the soon-to-be-opened Timber Museum.

*KPLC News Director Charlie Haldeman will be filling in on the news set this morning with today's top stories - from funeral arrangements for 15-year-old Cameron Carter, who died in a weekend hunting accident.

*The next step is being evaluated for lakefront development in Lake Charles.  A market study is currently underway to decide what type of retail and restaurants the lakefront can support.  We'll have the latest information from the Lake Charles City Council as they consider hiring an architect.

*Two ebola patients being treated in the United States are receiving the same experimental drug.  Find out the newest information on the worldwide ebola crisis as it reaches closer to home.

Make it a Sunrise day!
