LA Senate debate today, Capes for Casa and live music with Mickey Smith

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

*Mary Landrieu, Bill Cassidy and Rob Maness will face off today in a live debate for the Louisiana Senate seat.  Find out how you can watch it and what's bringing one of the candidates to Leesville today.

*You have the opportunity to hop on a bus and learn about the rich history of downtown Lake Charles.  We'll have the details of the free bus tour taking place Saturday.

*If your morning commute involves traveling on the I-10 Calcasieu River Bridge westbound, you don't want to miss our Sunrise Traffic Report.  We'll tell you about a lane closure starting this morning at 8:00 A.M.

*Local children in need will get the chance to dress up for Halloween thanks to a local sewing project.  Find out about Capes for Casa and how you can either help or or benefit from the cause.

*Jazz is a big part of Louisiana history and one local teacher hopes that will continue.  Mickey Smith will join us to talk about Music With a Mission and to perform the smooth sounds of his saxophone!

Make it a Sunrise day!
