Legislative Wrap Week 1, Veteran Health, LDMA: Louisiana Music, Happy Birthday, U.S.S. Kidd Anniversary, Whooping Crane

Legislative Wrap Week 1 The state’s expenses are projected to grow faster than the revenue the state has to meet them. You’ve heard it before. That means colleges, hospitals and prisons are on unstable financial ground. Governor John Bel Edwards kicked off the Legislative session on Monday by outlining his plan to make up the gap between money in and money out. But what Edwards sees as a revenue problem, House leadership says can fix by cutting spending. SHARE

Veteran Health In collaboration with the US Army, Pennington Biomedical Research Center has released a program and smartphone app that uses the latest in mobile technologies to customize health programs for soldiers, veterans and military families. We take a look at how the “HEALTH Intensive” program puts a healthy lifestyle at a soldier’s fingertip. SHARE

U.S.S. Kidd Anniversary It was April 11th, 1945, at a location 90 miles east of Okinawa when a Japanese kamikaze plane bombed the naval destroyer – the USS Kidd – killing 38 crewmen. Since that time, their shipmates have gathered each year to pay tribute to those who died in the attack. Fred King shares his experience. SHARE

LDMA: Louisiana Music The Louisiana Digital Media Archive celebrates our state’s music in April, just in time for festival season. We highlight Cedric Watson, a zydeco musician from Lafayette who is working hard to preserve the legacy of Louisiana’s traditional creole style while adding a few twists of his own. SHARE

Happy Birthday, Whooping Crane Louisiana’s first wild-hatched whooping crane turned one-year-old this week. SHARE
