Bearing Wall

Want to open up a bearing wall between a kitchen and dining room. House is a two story colonial. Want to put in a 5 foot wide by 3 foot high opening. Looking in some construction manuals it kooks like a double 2x8 would be the right size header. Looking to make sure I have the proper header lengths. Also looking for the steps to follow to do this job properlly. One wire running in wall to upstairs bedroom.
