Live preview ahead of job fair, LA monkeys die at zoo, cooking eggs benedict

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

*If you're looking for a job, you don't want to miss today's newscast.  We will be live with one of the organizers of a big job fair at the Lake Charles Civic Center today.  Find out what you need to do to be a part of the event.

*A huge drug bust is made in Lake Charles and a young woman from Georgia is now in jail in Calcasieu Parish.  Hear how a K-9 aided in the discovery of more than $300,000 worth of marijuana.

*Two critically-endangered monkeys die at the Alexandria Zoo.  Investigators say a caretaker left them out in the cold.  We'll tell you about the fallout for the caretaker and how a third monkey is doing today.

*Wondering what to cook for breakfast this morning?  We have a delicious and healthy recipe in the Sunrise Kitchen with Fran Landry, a dietitian at West Calcasieu-Cameron Hospital.  She'll be showing up how to prepare baby spinach and tomato eggs benedict - and she'll share the details on a new round of free healthy cooking classes.

*Meteorologist Ben Terry tells us today is another day to bundle up and some folks could see some rain tonight.  Will the sun come out tomorrow?  He'll have that answer!

Make it a Sunrise day!
