WATCH LIVE ON 7NEWS SUNRISE: Louisiana sales taxes go up by one cent

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Good Morning. John and Britney here with a look at what's coming up on 7News Sunrise.

It's no April Fools' joke. Louisiana sales taxes go up by one cent today, thanks to the legislature's action during a special session to address Louisiana's budget deficit.

Outdoor guide Hal McMillin will give us a report on turkey season in Southwest Louisiana as well as a fishing update, now that the floodwaters have receded.

Are you looking for an easy, yummy recipe to cook this weekend?  Don't miss our Sunrise cooking segment with Cookie Hauser.  She'll be showing us how to make a delicious deep dish pizza.

Plus, a new challenge is making the rounds on the internet and it could lead to serious injuries.

In weather, it's been a muggy and quite warm past few days but today we flip the script as cooler air rolls on in behind a departing frontal boundary. Problem is, rain sticks around too. Meteorologist Zack Fradella will have more coming up in your 'First Alert Forecast.'

Remember, if you are not near a TV at this morning, you can watch us live on the desktop or your smartphone.
