Everyone’s favorite story of a mermaid, girl power comes to the Theatre Baton Rouge stage

Ariel wants to find out what it is to be human, but Jenny Ballard believes the 16-year-old mermaid discovers something more powerful along the way.

And it’s not necessarily love, though she finds that with Prince Eric.

“I would call it girl power,” says Ballard, who is directing Theatre Baton Rouge’s production of Disney’s “The Little Mermaid.” “It’s about much more than Ariel finding her prince. It’s about Ariel finding where she belongs in this world, and though Prince Eric is a part of that, he’s secondary to it.”

Theatre Baton Rouge will open the musical Friday, June 3, on its Main Stage, which is equipped for cast members to go underwater and above it.

The numerous victims in Saturday's deadly crash in rural Walworth County included a vibrant young family on its way to a relative's wedding.

Carlos Venegas, 26, Maria Flores, 27, and their 2-year-old son, Carlos, were killed when the family's pickup truck was broadsided by a semitrailer truck at Town Hall Road and Highway K in the town of Sharon.

The couple's 6-year-old daughter, Giselle, survived and was in stable condition Monday at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. She is expected to remain there for days, said Rosa Venegas, her aunt.

It Was the Best Day Ever'

Iraq War Veteran and Mom to Special Needs Son Receive Free Dream Wedding

When Matthew Brown bought a ring to propose to his girlfriend, Hannah Reese, he couldn't wait to pop the question.

"He asked me to marry him in his mother's living room at a family get-together," Reese, 24, tells PEOPLE. "He said he had wanted to plan something big, but he bought the ring that day and just couldn’t wait."

But the Iraq war veteran and his bride-to-be's wedding didn't come together quite as quickly as the proposal.

Though the McKeesport, Pennsylvania, couple began saving for their dream wedding after getting engaged in June 2012, Brown lost his job just six months later. Then, just months after Reese gave birth to the couple's second child, a son named Colton, he was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy, a rare genetic disease that affects voluntary muscle movement.

Red tuna crabs back on shores of Monterey Bay

Patrick Webster of the Monterey Bay Aqaurium photographs some of the millions of pelagic red crabs that washed up on Del Monte Beach in Monterey on Monday,

Monterey - The bright red tuna crabs are back in the Monterey Bay, having washed up on Del Monte Beach in droves.

Early Monday, residents and visitors started noticing the crabs, also known as the pelagic red crab or pleuroncodes planipes.

They creatures are hard to miss, their red shells a stark contrast to the sand of Del Monte Beach. There were hundreds of thousands on the beach Monday according to Andrew DeVogelaere, a research coordinator director with the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary and the Sanctuary Integrated Monitoring Network.

DeVogelaere said the crab is usually found off the coast of Baja California but shows up other places during the El Niño weather pattern. Adults tend to live in the deep sea currents while their babies often wash up to shore, blown in by the currents.
