GEISMAR - Louisiana is known for its live music. Playing instruments, signing and dancing are all part of our heritage. 5th graders at Spanish Lake Primary School in Ascension Parish are getting a head start on the tradition by learning to play ukulele.

"They are in the classroom all day reading, writing and doing math, but this gives them to do something different," music teacher Chad Leblanc explains.

Leblanc says it helps students with their memories and confidence.

"We learn the songs and the chords and the instrument," he told 2une In's Kylie Dixon. "It takes so long to do, but it's going to be worth it in the future."

BATON ROUGE - Thanksgiving signals the beginning of the holidays and is a time for joy and celebration, but it can also be a time for loss, anxiety and depression.

You can get help for the holiday blues at the Baton Rouge Crisis Intervention Center. Haley Shows joined John Pastorek on 2une In Tuesday with all the details.

Beginning January 1st we are going to offer traumatic loss grief counseling. It's part of the center's Traumatic Loss Outreach Program.

"We are activated by the Coroner's Office, and we go out to the scene of a traumatic death," she explains.

Shows says those events can include anything from a tragic car accident or shooting. She believes it's best to plan ahead.

"If you know this is your first anniversary without your loved one, know what you're going to do this holiday season," Shows recommends.

For more information on how to cope with traumatic loss, visit the Baton Rouge Intervention Center website or watch the video.

CROWLEY - After years and $4.5 million in renovations, the Grand Opera House in Crowley is full of life. The theatre was a hot spot in the early 1900s, but had been sitting untouched and closed off until a family saw the beauty in this Louisiana Legacy.

The 113-year-old building is once again a gem in downtown Crowley. Artists like Hunter Lambert are enjoying it just like others did a century ago.

"The amazing restoration that was done just made it more beautiful and enhanced it," he told 2une In's Kylie Dixon. "It didn't take away any of the age of the essence."

That essence is remembered fondly by Barbara Geesey. She grew up going to the Grand Opera House of the South.

"We enjoyed the movies because it was the outside world," she explains. "Most of us didn't get outside this small town until maybe when we went to college."

In the opera house's heydey, many famous people made Crowley one of their stops. Then after 4 decades of music, dance and movies, the second form became silent. The doors shut and the curtains closed.

Then Kim Gattle and her family spear-headed the restoration. They say it's not just about the music, but also about a community coming together and being proud of their community.

BATON ROUGE - Everyone is getting prepared to serve Thanksgiving dinner, but not everyone knows where their food came from. In Louisiana, a lot of it comes from our own backyard.

This time of year, a lot of attention is given to the human treatment of animals. Kleinpeter Farms has received its fifth perfect score for the care of the cows at its St. Helena Parish dairy farm. The honor comes as the American Humane Association unveils a national survey of 5,900 Americans showing overwhelming support for the humane treatment of farm animals raised for food.

"Providing the best care for our cows has been an obsession or our family since Kleinpeter Farms Dairy was founded 101 years ago," President Jeff Kleinpeter told 2une In's Rebecca Buchanan. "This survey tells us what we've known for a long time: Not only is caring for our cows the right thing to do, it's what our customers want us to do."

According to the survey, 94.9% of Americans are "very concerned"about farm animal welfare, up from 83% a year ago. More than 75% of people said they were willing to pay more for humanely produced eggs, meat and dairy products.

BATON ROUGE - Duck season opened last weekend in the West Zone, and the East Zone is just days away from starting.

"Opening morning is the best morning of them all, because you know there are going to be a lot of ducks out there," explains Ron Guidry from Deaux Chenes Hunting Club. "But it's kind of hard because it seems like half of civilization is sitting within a five-mile radius of where you are."

There are plenty of teals still in the area and a lot of spoon bills to fill an early season limit. Around the coast, there were mixed bags of mallard, greys and some model ducks, but the majority of big ducks will arrive as stronger fronts push south.

News 2's John Jackson takes you duck hunting in this Outdoors Report. Watch the video for more information.

LEEVILLE - Along the Louisiana coast, the once-thriving fishing town of Leeville is sinking.

Leeville boasts some of the best fishing in the state inshore among the marshes, but coastal erosion has left nearly two-thirds of it underwater. One woman is trying to save what is left.

"Everyone is just sitting around and watching it erode," Janet Rhodus told News 2's Whitney Vann.

Three years ago, Rhodus started Launch Leevile, a non-profit dedicated to save the sinking town.

"No one else was doing it, and I couldn't stand to see it any longer," she explains. "So I'm going to try and do what I can."

Janet reached out to Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne, who agreed to do what he could to help save it.

"We named Leeville a Cultural District," Dardenne says. "There's grant money to help that no one went after until Janet did."

Watch the video for more information, and be sure to tune in to Weekends with Whitney, Sundays at 6:30 a.m.

BATON ROUGE - A motivational athlete visited Baton Rouge this week to encourage you to get up and get moving.

Mark Wellman was paralyzed in a mountain climbing accident, but he hasn't let that stop him from doing what he loves. He visited the Baton Rouge Rehab Center Tuesday and climbed a rock wall to show what you can do if you put your mind to it.

"These people have gone through an accident or an illness," Wellman says. "They've lost something they're used to having."

Wellman was the first paraplegic to climb El Capitain, an 3,200 ft. tall granite cliff in Yosemite National Park. The treck took him eight days and over 7,000 pull-ups! He was also a member of the U.S. Disabled Ski Team and carried the flaming torch up an 120 ft. rope to light the cauldron for the 1996 Paralympic Games in Atlanta.

BATON ROUGE - More than 4,000 children are in foster care in Louisiana. The Louisiana Adoption Advisory Board is working to find their forever families today at the Capitol.

Child and Family Service's #1 goal is to eventually foster kids to their original homes, but when that's not an option, adoption can be the next best thing.

"We want to call attention to the number of kids that are in the foster system waiting to be adopted," Kent Gonsoulin explains. "There's some fear with adopting kids from the system, but they're great kids and need homes just like every other kids."

Of the 400 foster kids currently available for adoption, 150 are waiting adoptive placement.

"Those children need a permanent loving home," DCFS Dept. Director Jan Byland told 2une In's Rebecca Buchanan. "We need people to open their hearts and homes to those children and give them a permanent place to stay."

The Call to Adoption is Thursday from 11 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on the Capitol steps. Click on the video links or visit the Louisiana Adoption Advisory Board website for more information.

BATON ROUGE - Enjoy comedy with a serious message this weekend at the No Hate Comedy Date.

"We're promoting anti-bullying, anti-hate and unity in the community," explains producer Y'zell Williamson.

They've invited famous acts Lady Bunny and Coco Peru to come to Baton Rouge and perform at the Manship Theatre Saturday night. Organizers believe comedy is the perfect avenue to get their message across.

"You can pass a message anyway, but with comedy people tend to be more accepting and open to what you're trying to promote," producer Quentin Little told 2une In's John Pastorek.

"There's a way to spread a positive message across and what better way to do that than through laughter," Williamson says. "Someone once said a smile is a smile in any language, so it's a great way to get everyone together for one cause."

Performance for the No Hate Comedy Date at 5 and 8 p.m. Saturday at the Manship Theatre in downtown Baton Rouge. For ticket information visit the Manship Theatre website or visit their box office at 100 Lafayette St.

BATON ROUGE - LSU has named it 2015 Alumnus of the Year.

Newton Thomas received the honor early this week. He graduated from LSU with a degree in electrical engineering in 1967. Sixteen years later, he founded the Newtron Group, which became the 15th largest electrical contractor in the country in 2012. While Newton was surprised, others say it was a no-brainer.

"I'm in total awe. This was totally unexpected," Thomas told News 2's Whitney Vann. "I'm aware of some of the people who've won this before me and what they've accomplished. To be included in that group is an unbelievable honor."

"We couldn't be more proud of what he's accomplished, both as an alumnus of LSU and a role model for students on the way," explains LSU President F. King Alexander.

Newton will be inducted into the LSU Alumni Association's Hall of Distinction in March.

DENHAM SPRINGS - November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. The American Cancer Society predicts more than 46,000 people will be diagnosed with the disease this year, and less than 7,000 will survive. 2une In's Rebecca Buchanan caught up with Shara Rusk, a Denham Springs woman living with the deadly disease.

"They call it the silent killer for reason, because you just don't know," Rusk says. "I thought I pulled a muscle in my back, and I figured the pain would go away."

After a couple weeks, she went to the doctor and got the news: Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. Doctors told her it couldn't be removed. Patients usually have no symptoms until the cancer has already spread to other organs, but some signs include yellowing of the skin, back pain and weight loss.

"Normally when you find out you have pancreatic cancer and it's in Stage 4, it's too late," she explains. "There's only 6% of us that live past the five year mark and 1 in 5 that live past the year."

Shara was given three months to live without treatment, or up to a year with it. She decided the harsh chemo treatment was worth the extra time with her family.

Watch the video to see Rusk's emotional inside-look at her battle with pancreatic cancer.

BATON ROUGE - Hundreds of students have the chance to be part of a program that helps them with science, technology, engineering and math. Janet Pace with the Foundation for EBRSS and Nancy Stich from Capital one stopped by 2une In to tell you how you can help them STEMUp.

The program is funded by $100,000 from Capital One's Investing for good program. It's designed to mentor middle students who are interested in STEM career paths.

"We're targeting middle school students to help them create an identity so by the time they get to high school they're taking the right science and math courses that are going to get them to an end game," Pace told 2une In's Kylie Dixon.

Louisiana is expected to need 69,000 STEM jobs by 2018, including 35,000 in the Baton Rouge region alone.

"STEMUp Baton Rouge engages mentors from the business industry," Pace explains. "They'll be using a great national curriculum called "Engineering Everywhere" that will help them sustain growth through lessons and projects throughout each semester."

STEMUp is currently looking for people to volunteer to be mentors. They're hosting the first informational Friday at 9 a.m. at the Main Library.

BATON ROUGE - In 2013, more than 800 students signed up for the first Geaux Big Service Day at LSU, followed by 1,200 this year. They complete 29 service projects across East Baton Rouge Parish and are looking for more work.

So far, the group has 47 job sites and will accept more until Thanksgiving Day.

"Whether it's painting washing windows, cleaning up their yards, raking leaves and anything we can do as students, we'll do," Geaux Big Executive Director Bryce Bourgeois says.

"I love this project because it gives students the opportunity to go out and learn more about what the community has to offer," Associate Director Arenn Martin explains. "We get to really thank the Baton Rouge community for all they do for us as students."

Any resident, non-profit, school or small business is eligible to request volunteers. All labor and tools are covered at no cost to the homeowner with the exception of paint. The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank knows first-hand the impact student-help can have.

"We're very involved with the pantry on campus, Kitchens on the Go brings food to us, it's a great working relationship," Mike Manning told 2une In's Rebecca Buchanan. "It's tremendous for us to get this kind of assistance because we're so dependent on volunteers."

BATON ROUGE - Our Cool School this week is Scotlandville Magnet High School in Baton Rouge, where one senior has high standards for himself and his school.

Anthony Kenney has it all- good grades, a nice looking resume and a supportive family. He's the Band Captain of the marching band, President of the Student Government Association and even Junior Deacon at his church. His hard work has caught the attention of his fellow students.

"Anthony Kenney makes school more enjoyable," senior Tyler Williams told 2une In's Kylie Dixon. "Everytime we go on a trip, Anthony will pray and make everything seem more God-like. He brings something to the school that none of the other students have".

Anthony says he doesn't do it for himself. He puts Scotlandville Magnet High School as priority #1.

"I just love Scotlandville because a lot of my family came from here, and I want to continue that legacy of bringing it to new heights each and everyday," Kenney says.

"He loves his school and exudes confidence in his school," observes Principal Howard Davis.

With an acceptance letter from Southern University already in hand, he's still waiting on his letter from LSU. He'll have a tough decision to make when the time comes, but for now, he plans to enjoy his last few weeks at Scotlandville Middle Magnet.

What you need to know when enrolling for healthcare http://www.wbrz.com/news/what-you-need-to-know-when-enrolling-for-healthcare/ http://www.wbrz.com/news/what-you-need-to-know-when-enrolling-for-healthcare/ 2une In Tue, 18 Nov 2014 5:15:12 AM Hunter Robinson What you need to know when enrolling for healthcare

BATON ROUGE - Open enrollment has begun for those wanting to get health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. There are some changes this year, including increased fines for being uninsured and a shorter enrollment period.

"The biggest single change is that the fines have tripled," Louisiana Healthcare Education Coalition State Coordinator Doug Wilkinson. "Last year it was a $95 fine if you didn't enroll. This year it's $325 or 2% of your gross income, whichever is greater".

The enrollment period is also two months shorter this year. Enrollment began Saturday and will run until February 15th, but if you want coverage by January 1st, you have to everything taken care of by December 15th.

Wilkinson says the problems that plagued the Obamacare website aren't popping up this time around.

"It's my understanding that two million people logged-on Saturday without any glitches," he told 2une In's Kylie Dixon.

In 2013, Louisiana had over 400,000 people eligible for subsidies, but only 100,000 signed on to purchase insurance. Wilkinson says there are new plans this year, so you shouldn't just choose the same option you did last year.
