BATON ROUGE - With all of the disputes, lawsuits and news surrounding Common Core in Louisiana, it can be difficult to keep up with why the education standards are so controversial. The Louisiana Black Alliance for Educational Options wants to change that.

BAEO is teaming up with Rep. Patricia Hayes Smith and Rep. Ted James to host a pair of Town Hall Meetings to educate the community about Common Core, and to explain how they believe the community will benefit from its implementation and why state leaders are going to court over the standards.

Eric Lewis with BAEO stopped by 2une In Wednesday to talk about the meetings. He believes Common Core is necessary.

"Common Core is essentially about raising the bar for our children," Lewis explained. "For so long in Louisiana we've talked about how we rank near the bottom nationally when it comes to academic achievement, and Common Core gives us the opportunity to compete with the rest of the nation."

If you're confused about Common Core or want more information, you can attend one of two Town Hall Meetings. The first is Wednesday night at 6:00 p.m. at the McKinley Alumni Center in Baton Rouge.The second is Thursday night at 6:00 p.m. at the Greenwell Springs Library.

Auditions are now underway for the 2014-15 Baton Rouge Symphony Chorus. Everyone in the Baton Rouge area is invited to try out. The Symphony Chorus will perform at least three concerts over the next year. While the group is already large, Chorusmaster Dr. David Shaler says dozens more could be added.

"Right now we're a chorus of about 120, but that could easily grow," Shaler explains. "We have room for more, and I think they'll find a wonderful community of musicians and singers in the Symphony Chorus."

Auditions are now through Friday, August 8th at Broadmoor United Methodist Church. You can make an appointment by contacting Chorusmaster Shaler by e-mail at dashaler@gmail.com or by phone (225)924-6269, ext. 233

New magnet programs in Baton Rouge schools include Mandarin Chinese, broadcasting http://www.wbrz.com/news/new-magnet-programs-in-baton-rouge-schools-include-mandarin-chinese-broadcasting/ http://www.wbrz.com/news/new-magnet-programs-in-baton-rouge-schools-include-mandarin-chinese-broadcasting/ 2une In Tue, 29 Jul 2014 6:33:28 AM Hunter Robinson New magnet programs in Baton Rouge schools include Mandarin Chinese, broadcasting

BATON ROUGE - If you still have not decided where to send your child to school when class resumes this fall, there are some new magnet programs in Baton Rouge schools that could help you make up your mind.

Polk Elementary School is offering a Mandarin Chinese Program for the first time. Cayla Borruano with the foreign language academic immersion magnet program says the program was started because the French and Spanish programs were so successful. Even though many parents many not think Chinese is important to their child's development, Borruano says it could help them later in life.

"There is a lot of economic drive to impart Mandarin Chinese to our students these days," she explained. "Our goal is to prepare them for the economy that they're walking out of school into. We want to make sure they are more marketable and more viable in our global economy."

They are looking for children coming into kindergarten.

That program is not the only new one in the Baton Rouge area. The new Brookstown Middle Magnet Academy will offer health sciences, broadcast communications and honors academy magnet programs. Deborah Roberts is excited about the broadcast communications program.

"The kids will work with state of the art equipment to write and produce their own music, videos, radio programs, journalism and online newspapers," Roberts explained.

There are still twenty or thirty spots remaining in the broadcasting program.

Louisiana Mentor has opened four new foster homes for therapeutic and challenged children in Baton Rouge and are set to open another in Walker, but Gallent say they're looking for more in our area. She talked about the type of assistance the kids need.

"Some of them are mentally retarded, some have physical needs, some have emotional needs and some have behavioral problems," Gallent explained. "These children have been abused and placed in foster care, so there are some major issues, but we have some amazing people who want to be foster parents to them."

Gallent went on to say that she really sees a difference in kids that are placed in good homes.

"We see so many come in our office, we see them grow and develop and blossom," she said.

There are some requirements to become a Louisiana Mentor. You must be between 21 and 65 years old, have a GED or high school diploma and have a spare bedroom in your home.

BATON ROUGE - The new J.K. Haynes Charter School in Baton Rouge wants to help you get your kids ready to go back to school and showcase some of its program.

J.K. Haynes Charter School opens this fall at the location of the old Banks Elementary School. The school is locally operated and free to attend. School leaders say the smaller classes will allow for more one-on-one interaction between students and teachers and improved overall academic success.

"We were one of the first schools approved under the new charter system by the East Baton Rouge Parish School Board," says Board Chairman Nelson Taylor. "We have a history of excellence and are from the local community and want the local community to support us."

Even though this its first year as a middle school, Diana Haynes says their school is different because of its history.

"We have been open since 1997," she explains. "We've established a nurturing environment and welcoming environment for parents."

Assistant Principal Frederick Boudreaux agrees.

"We are a local school for the local community. We've been there for 17 years and we want to give you a school to love," he said.

To celebrate its opening, J.K. Haynes Charter School is hosting a Showcase and School Supply Giveaway on Sunday from 3:00-6:00 p.m.

J.K. Haynes is currently enrolling students in grades 6th-8th and will open next month.

TSA fees set to increase http://www.wbrz.com/news/tsa-fees-set-to-increase/ http://www.wbrz.com/news/tsa-fees-set-to-increase/ 2une In Tue, 22 Jul 2014 8:40:40 AM Hunter Robinson TSA fees set to increase

WASHINGTON, D.C. - If you thought your last flying experience was bad, it could be getting worse. The TSA is set to double and even triple the fees you pay to fly.

The raised prices were mandated by Congress and will automatically be added when you book your flight. If you're flying non-stop or on a trip with multiple legs, you'll pay up to $5.60, an increase from just $2.50. If your connection is longer than four hours you'll be charged for a separate flight. That means you could pay $11.20/passenger for what used to cost you $2.50 each.

The prices will generate an extra $17 billion over the next ten years that will help fund the TSA and help reduce the federal deficit. Many people aren't happy with the increase.

"People don't like the TSA," opined airfarewatchdog.com founder George Hobica. "It's like paying more for a root canal, it's something you didn't want anyway."

BATON ROUGE - The incarceration rate in Louisiana is higher than any other state in the country. Judge Trudy M. White has been approved to begin a re-entry court through the 19th JDC aimed at changing that statistic.

The re-entry court will look to solve the issue of young offenders returning to jail after their release.

"It is an opportunity for young, short-term offenders to go to Angola and learn one of many trades," Judge White explains.

The young prisoners will be taught trades like automotive repair, plumbing, drywall installation and more by lifers who will never get out of prison. After two years, participants will then undergo an intensive supervision by the court.

"The court is then responsible to help them find a job, transportation, housing and any self-help service they may need," Judge White says.

To be eligible for the program, inmates must be recommended by a judge in the 19th JDC. We'll know more about the re-entry court following a press conference on Thursday.

Block out skin cancer with a free screening from Baton Rouge General http://www.wbrz.com/news/block-out-skin-cancer-with-a-free-screening-from-baton-rouge-general/ http://www.wbrz.com/news/block-out-skin-cancer-with-a-free-screening-from-baton-rouge-general/ 2une In Tue, 22 Jul 2014 6:33:27 AM Hunter Robinson Block out skin cancer with a free screening from Baton Rouge General

BATON ROUGE - More than two million people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year, but you can block it out by getting a free screening tomorrow from Baton Rouge General Medical Center.

The best ways to detect possible areas with skin cancer are to do self-exams. It's recommended that you do them once per month and look for any abnormal skin growth or any change in the color, shape, size or appearance of a skin growth.

The best way to avoid skin cancer altogether is to take preventative measures, especially during the hot, sunny summer months.

"You can still be in the sun and do it safely," Dr. Genevieve Maronge says. "The most important thing is to wear sunscreen everyday, including on your face using a broad spectrum sunscreen that's at least SPF 30."

Dr. Maronge also says you should find shade during the hottest and brightest hours of the day and wear protective clothing like wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses and sleeves whenever possible.

A key to beating skin cancer is early detection. That's why Baton Rouge General is hosting a free screening tomorrow from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at the Bluebonnet location. You can find more information on their website.

BATON ROUGE - Researchers at Pennington Biomedical Research Center are testing out the effectiveness of exercise desks. We visited Pennington this morning on 2une In to give you an inside look at the future of desk jobs.

We tried out two models this morning- the treadmill desk and the cycle desk. The concept isn't to replace your normal workout, but instead to replace the sedentary behavior of doing nothing while you sit in your desk all day.

The woman behind the research is Dr. Catrine Tudor-Locke who says she uses both machines everyday. Dr. Tudor-Locke says they realized some problems during testing in a local office, but the pedal desk may be the answer.

"The idea behind the pedal desk is to have you seated like you're used to working," she explains as she pedals at her desk. "But you're still able to increase your energy expenditure in a confined space without getting distracted".

Check out the video to get an inside look at the new desks.

BATON ROUGE - Tensions at the U.S.-Mexico border are high as wave after wave of illegal migrant children spill over into the United States. U.S. Senator and gubernatorial candidate David Vitter (R-Louisiana) stopped by 2une In this morning to talk about his bill he says is the solution to the crisis.

Vitter says it would halt the influx of unaccompanied children coming into the U.S. illegally by expediting the deportation process and reforming existing immigration laws.

"Our lax enforcement of immigration laws for decades has only encouraged more immigrants to come here illegally," Vitter explained. "That's exactly why we're seeing the influx of unaccompanied immigrant children arriving at our southern border."

"We need a policy that actually deters illegal immigration. I've said that if we want to send a message to others thinking about coming here illegally, let's deport these people by the planeload," Vitter went on to say.

His bill calls for immediate detention for all children apprehended as the border, as well as quicker deportation for those affiliated with gangs. Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-Louisiana) is introducing the companion bill in the House of Representatives.

While talking with John Pastorek, Vitter also commented on his ongoing campaign to be Louisiana's next governor. Watch his interview for more information.
