From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

Baton Rouge remains No. 1 in the country when it comes to AIDS cases per capita. Find out what an AIDS "task force" meeting today hopes to do about it. And, what can you do about the need for life saving care at Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital? You could buy a $50 ticket that supports the hospital's efforts and puts you in the running for a brand new Lexus. Five cars, five winners but time is running out. Don't forget you can catch our 9Online webcasts three times throughout the day. Check out our DOTD Traffic Watch cameras before hitting the road today to make sure there aren't any delays on your route. If you do run into any unusual traffic issues while on the roads, you can always see traffic on our WAFB app. Join us for 9NTM & The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
