You're gonna be with him till the day you die. 11:49:03

A FEW HOURS LATER IT WAS JIM WHO DIED.

HE WAS A PASSENGER IN A CAR ANOTHER DRIVER SLAMMED INTO.

Ghan Ilias, Jim's Older Brother

11:50:27 And it just hasn't clicked to me that he's gone bc he's the

best. 11:50:33

THE LOSS HIT CYPRESS LAKE HIGH SCHOOL HARD.

JIM GRADUATED IN 2012 AND STOOD OUT ON THE WRESTLING TEAM.

CLAY ROGERS SAYS THE SCHOOL HAD A MOMENT OF SILENCE THIS MORNING.

Clay Rogers, CLHS Junior

13:42:50 it was touching. He deserved it, he really did. He was a

great guy. 13:42:54

ROGERS AND HIS BROTHER KNEW JIM FROM SCHOOL. HE SAYS THIS WASN'T A

NORMAL MONDAY.

Clay Rogers, CLHS Junior

13:42:27 the hallways were different. People were sad, a lot of kids

were quieter. I think it had a big impact on a lot of the students.

13:42:36

HIS INFECTIOUS DRIVE AND ATTITUDE HAD AN IMPACT ON EVERYONE HE MET.

GHAN REMEMBERS WATCHINGTHE SUPER BOWL WITH HIS LITTLE BROTHER AND IS

THANKFUL HE CALLED HIM SATURDAY AFTERNOON.

TOSS TO CHAD-OC, VO


FORMER GOVERNOR CHARLIE CRIST IS IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA TONIGHT.

HE'S IN FORT MYERS TONIGHT TO SIGN HIS NEW BOOK.AND COINCIDENTALLY.THIS IS AN IMPORTANT ANNIVERSARY IN HIS POLITICAL CAREER.

FIVE YEARS AGO TODAY, CRIST HUGGED PRESIDENT OBAMA AT HARBORSIDE EVENT CENTER.

CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICANS REVOLTED AGAINST CRIST.

IT ULTIMATELY LAID THE GROUNDWORK FOR CRIST TO SWITCH PARTIES. Return to index of stories...

GOVERNOR CRIST ONE ON ONE-BUBBA


THE LAST TIME I INTERVIEWED CHARLIE CRIST, HE HAD JUST FINISHED SPEAKING AT THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION.

THAT WAS 17-MONTHS AGO WHEN CRIST WAS AN *INDEPENDENT.

NOW HE'S A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT RUNNING FOR GOVERNOR AGAINST HIS OLD PARTY. Return to index of stories...


GOVERNOR CRIST ONE ON ONE-BNR-PKG


THIS AFTERNOON CHARLIE CRIST HELD A FUNDRAISER AT BROADWAY PALM DINNER THEATER IN FORT MYERS.

FRIDAY NIGHT CRIST MADE HEADLINES BY TELLING H-B-O'S BILL MAHER THAT HE THINKS THE U-S SHOULD *LIFT THE TRADE EMBARGO WITH CUBA.

TODAY I ASKED HIM WHY.

Well I think it's been long enough now. It's been 52 years. and it

strikes me that it has not worked - that it's not helping the people.

FLORIDA CONGRESSMAN *AND CUBAN-AMERICA MARIO DIAZ-BALART FIRED BACK. CALLING "CRIST'S COMMENTS. SHAMEFUL. TO SUGGEST THAT CURRENT LAW. IS TO BLAME FOR THE PROLONGED CASTRO TYRANNY IS REPULSIVE AND ONLY SERVES THE INTERESTS OF THE CASTRO BROTHERS."

AS A REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR CRIST SUPPORTED THE CUBAN EMBARGO. IT'S ONE OF SEVERAL AREAS WHERE CRITICS SAY CRIST HAS CHANGED HIS STANCE.

ON THE ISSUE MARRIAGE. WHEN CRIST WAS A REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR, HE SUPPORTED A CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT DEFINING MARRIAGE AS BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN.

Chad: you supported that when you were Govornor.

Now what's your stance on gay marriage in Florida?

I support it. much like the President.

CRIST NOW FAVORS OVERTURNING FLORIDA'S BAN ON GAY MARRIAGE, ECHOING PRESIDENT OBAMA.

Who am I to tell people who to love? or frankly who to marry and I

agree with that. and frankly i think that's an appropriate

progression.

I THEN ASKED THE FORMER GOVERNOR ABOUT THE NUMBER ONE CRITICISM HE'S FACING THIS ELECTION.

CHAD: He was a Republican. Independent. A democrat. Do you have a

defense against the label of Flip-flopper? 57

CRIST: sure. Because you change parties doesn't mean that you have

changed. Let me explain it this way. I didn't move. The leadership

of the Republican Party moved at lighting speed as a matter of fact. Return to index of stories...


GOVERNOR CRIST ONE ON ONE-BUBBA


ONE HOUR FROM NOW CHARLIE CRIST WILL BE AT THE BOOKS A MILLION AT THE FORUM IN FORT MYERS.

THIS TELLS YOU HOW THE GOVERNOR'S RACE IS ALREADY HEATING UP.

SUBTLE LASER BEAM SOUND EFFECT OVER BEAM SWIPE VIDEO

AN INTENSE GREEN BEAM OF LIGHT CUTS THROUGH THE NIGHT SKY.

Pilot in Plane / 00:23 Right now we're getting hit pretty good with a green laser.

EXPLODING INTO THE COCKPIT OF A PLANE AND BLINDING THE PILOT.

ground Control / 00:31 I copy. You're getting hit with a green laser.

LAST YEAR ALONE, 322 PILOTS REPORTED BEING HIT BY LASERS LIKE THIS WHILE FLYING OVER FLORIDA.

mike Warner/Commander of Aviation Division / 02:45 That can hamper our ability to fly safely. 02:47

MANY OF THEM FLYING IN AND OUT OF SOUTHWEST FLORIDA INTERNATIONAL.

mike Warner/Commander of Aviation Division / 13:37 It's when the kids go wait a minute that guy is coming in for a landing. That's when it gets to be a problem. 13:42

MIKE WARNER FLIES FOR THE LEE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE.

HE'S BEEN HIT BY A GREEN LASER.

mike / 05:10 If you see a beam you can follow it back to it's source. 05:14

EXACTLY WHAT HIS CREW DID IN MAY OF 2011.

mike / 08:58 The danger with a laser strike is the laser is so powerful that it just washes out these goggles and it takes them a while to recover. During that time we can no longer use these and we're back to flying with the naked eye. 09:13

USING NIGHT VISION LIKE THIS THEY WERE QUICKLY ABLE TO LOCATE 32-YEAR OLD MICHAEL SMITH.

Joe Smith /nephew sentenced to prison / 19:27:50 He was still out in there playing with the laser when they rolled up. 19:27:53

HIS UNCLE TELLS US THE INCIDENT HAS HAD A LASTING IMPACT.

Joe / 19:20:58 He's lost his home and family. Over what? A moment of ignorance? 19:21:05

SMITH WAS CONVICTED AND IS SERVING 2 YEARS IN A FLORIDA PRISON.

joe / 19:26:00 I don't know that all that jail time was necessary for him to learn his lesson.

SINCE 2010, 22 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ARRESTED IN LEE COUNTY.

NATIONALLY MORE THAN 3800 LASER STRIKES WERE REPORTED TO THE FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION.

DAVE / I'm here in North Fort Myers. To show you how powerful these laser are I'm pointing it into downtown Fort Myers our camera stationed there

was easily able to pick it up.

FEDERAL SAFETY REGULATIONS LIMIT LASERS TO JUST FIVE MILLIWATTS OF LIGHT.

WHILE OURS MEETS THOSE STANDARDS, IN MOMENTS WE WERE ABLE TO FIND HIGHER POWERED LASERS FOR SALE ONLINE.

BALLOON POPPING FROM YOUTUBE

SOME SO POWERFUL THEY CAN POP A BALLOON.

MATCH BEING LIGHT FROM YOUTUBE.

EVEN LIGHT A MATCH.

Samuel Goldwasser/Laser Expert / The proliferation and increasingly powerful lasers is a catastrophe waiting to happen.

dr. Ashish Shamar/Eye Specialist / 01:13:26 Obviously if it's a much powerful or stronger source of light; then the damage can be profound. 01:13:33

THE FBI REPORTS SEVERAL COMMERCIAL PILOTS HAVE SUFFERED SIGNIFICANT INJURY INCLUDING BURNED RETINAS;

THE COAST GUARD REQUIRES PILOTS TO RETURN TO BASE AND HAVE THEIR EYES EXAMINED IF A GREEN LASER IS POINTED AT THEM.

dr. Shamar / 01:15:18 There's a moment where they can lose their vision for a little while or it can be deflected through the glass or goggles that can impair their vision for quite a bit. 01:15:29

LEAVING PILOTS LIKE MIKE FLYING BLIND.

mike 03:44 You'd be surprised sometimes the environment we work in. We have to keep a constant heads up for other traffic. 03:48 Return to index of stories...

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


NICE WEATHER AGAIN TOMORROW

Another beautiful day is on the way for Tuesday. High pressure remains in control of our weather pattern for the rest of this evening and tomorrow. Skies will be mostly clear tonight and it will be pleasantly cool this evening. Temperatures will fall to the mid/upper 50 tonight and only a few inland areas will see some patchy ground fog in the morning. Skies will be bright and sunny during the day on Tuesday with highs in the lower 80's.

We will be tracking a potentially strong cold front moving toward our area by late day Wednesday. The front is expected to bring some heavy showers or thunderstorms which could move through here with strong winds by Thursday morning. After the front blows through we should end up with another string of nice days starting Thursday and lasting through the weekend. A few chilly mornings are possible on Friday and Saturday with a potential for mid 40's on Friday morning. The daytime highs will be in the comfortable 70's after the front goes by.

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.
