Merry Christmas law, DeRidder's gothic jail, Common core legislation

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

*It's been six months since Governor Bobby Jindal signed a bill into law that gives public schools permission to celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah.  We'll go over what's allowed in a school setting from displays and decorations to holiday greetings.

*The Gothic jail in downtown DeRidder could be a big topic at a meeting of the Beauregard Parish Police Jury today.  Jurors are scheduled to tour the jail, then discuss grant opportunities and future plans.  

*Senator David Vitter has added an amendment to the federal spending bill.  It would block the federal government from forcing states to adopt Common Core standards.  Find out when this amendment is up for a vote.

*Elf on the Shelf has become a popular holiday tradition for many families across the country.  We want to see your creative pictures!  Find out how you can show off your creativity on KPLC.

Make it a Sunrise day!
