Louisiana officials return from border with new focus on making security a priority

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

A second aid worker with the deadly Ebola virus is in the air right now, flying towards the United States. The first patient is already responding to treatment at a hospital in Atlanta. We will bring you the latest on efforts to save both. Plus, if you are a fan of the local farmer's market, but just can't make it down there, how about the market coming right to your door? Lauren Westbrook gives you a look at IndiePlate. And, the LSU Vet School is bringing a hawk and an owl into the studio. You know Diane Deaton is going to love this. Or, at least we will love watching her run from them.
