9News Early Edition from Matt Williams: March 12, 2013 - WAFB 9 News Baton Rouge, Louisiana News, Weather, Sports

BR leads nation in AIDS cases for 2nd year


From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

It's set to start at about 5 a.m. CST. Conclave set to take over the Sistine Chapel. The cardinals won't emerge until a new pope is named. The on-again, off-again, on-again trip to the sinkhole for Gov. Bobby Jindal is back on this morning. What would the governor like to see happen down in Bayou Corne? And, we'll tell you all about the annual "Keep the Pace" race coming up. It's a memorial run to remember a young woman murdered by a serial killer.
