Live with the Clydesdales and Washington-Marion band, Ebola update

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

*The Budweiser Clydesdales have come to Lake Charles to be a part of McNeese State University's homecoming parade rolling through town later today!  John Bridges will be live from the stables at MSU this morning with a behind the scenes look at these magnificent animals.

*We are gearing up for our 60th Anniversary Block Party this Saturday in downtown Lake Charles!  The fabulous Washington-Marion marching band will be one of our performers, but they're tuning their instruments early this morning to play on Sunrise!

*Do you believe that the CDC has a handle on Ebola in America?  That question will be front and center today on Capitol Hill as lawmakers hear testimony on the Ebola crisis with CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden.

*There is currently more than $103 billion worth of proposed industrial expansions in the state of Louisiana.  With $79 billion of that being invested in the Lake Charles area, economists say Southwest Louisiana is the fastest growing area of the state.

Make it a Sunrise day!
