State furloughs, LA abortion law, walking to Bethlehem, cooking pot roast soup

Happy Friday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on a busy Sunrise:

*A budget shortfall for the current fiscal year could mean furloughs for state workers.  We'll tell you how this proposal could affect the weekly paychecks of state workers - and we will also tell you why the budget shortfall could have a big impact on state college campuses.

*Lake Charles Police Chief Don Dixon will hold a news conference today with Sulphur Police Chief Lewis Coats.  The pair is expected to release information regarding multiple car burglaries throughout Lake Charles and Sulphur.

*The Martin Luther King, Jr. Festival begins today with the annual MLK Breakfast at Trinity Baptist Church.  Find out how you can be a part of the event and what else is on the schedule leading up to the MLK holiday.

*A federal judge in Baton Rouge says he won't drop his temporary order against enforcing Louisiana's latest abortion law.  It requires doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic.  We'll tell you what's next for this case.

*Looking for a fun way to burn some calories?  One local church is inviting you to walk to Bethlehem with them!  We'll tell you how to be a part of the kick-off event this weekend in a live interview.

*We've got a tasty and easy recipe in the Sunrise Kitchen this morning with our friend, Cookie Hauser.  She will show us how to make a stick to your ribs pot roast soup!

Make it a Sunrise day!
