FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

High pressure near Florida will continue a dry and mostly sunny pattern this

afternoon and tomorrow with highs aiming for the middle 80s. A surge of

tropical moisture will arrive on Friday.mixing some more clouds with our

sunshine, and perhaps triggering 1 or 2 stray showers. Steering winds from

the SW would suggest that Friday's shower activity would favor inland areas.

A frontal system will reach North Florida Friday night, and stall out through

the weekend. That would give SW Florida a partly sunny - warm, and humid

Saturday and Sunday with a chance for a stray shower each day. Return to index of stories...

RISING MILK PRICES-TRX PKG


GET READY FOR STICKER SHOCK IN THE DAIRY SECTION.

A POSSIBLE INCREASE OF AS MUCH AS 60-CENTS COULD PUSH THE PRICE OF MILK CLOSE TO FIVE OR SIX DOLLARS A GALLON.

S/ Tina Sandoval / Shopper:09-:14

"So yeah, when it goes up we are going to feel it. So defiantly its going to impact my family.

TINA SANDOVAL FAMILY DRINKS TWO GALLONS OF MILK EVERY WEEK. SHE SAYS THEY MIGHT HAVE TO CUT BACK NOT JUST ON MILK BUT CEREAL TOO.

"And I have grand kids that cereal like 3 of 4 times a day. So that's where most of the milk goes.

WHY THE INCREASE? ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS. NOT ENOUGH COWS TO MAKE ENOUGH MILK TO MEET DEMAND.

WHEN THE COST OF FEED WENT UP LAST YEAR, FARMERS CUT BACK ON THEIR COWS.

"Some times twice, some times three times a day. "

THE HIGHER PRICE OF MILK WOULD HIT THE POCKET BOOKS HARD AT ACTION DAY PRIMARY PLUS.

EVERY MONTH THE KIDS DRINK UP TO NINE HUNDRED GALLONS WORTH.

ACTION DAY PRIMARY PLUS SAYS IT WOULD EAT UP THE PRICE INCREASE THIS YEAR BUT IF THE COST OF MILK DOESN'T DROP, IT MIGHT HAVE TO PASS IT ON TO PARENTS.

"That would hit us. Its about 6 hundred dollars a month, just for this increase.

ANY INCREASES IN MILK PRICES MAY HAVE A RIPPLE EFFECT ON OTHER DAIRY PRODUCTS INCLUDING YOGURT AND ICE CREAM.

WILLOW BEND CREAMERY USES 20 TO 30 GALLONS OF MILK JUST FOR ITS MILK SHAKES.

IT'S POSSIBLE THE PRICE OF ICE CREAM MAY GO UP BECAUSE OF THIS.

DUNN JUROR SPEAKS-PKG


Byron: "Do you think Michael Dunn got away with murder?"

Valerie: "At this point, I do, myself personally. Yes."

A JUROR FROM MICHAEL DUNN'S MURDER TRIAL IS SPEAKING OUT ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING ON INSIDE THE JURY'S DELIBERATION ROOM.

"We took a poll. There was two of us undecided. Two for "was justified" and the rest were "not justified.". We all believed that there was another way out. Another option."

IN AN INTERVIEW WITH ABC'S NIGHTLINE, JUROR NUMBER 4, NAMED VALERIE, SAYS THE DISAGREEMENTS ULTIMATELY LED TO A MISTRIAL FOR THE MOST SEVERE CHARGE OF FIRST DEGREE MURDER.

SHE BELIEVES DUNN WAS GUILTY.

"We had a lot of discussion of him getting out of the car. The threat is now gone and your intent is still to go and pursue this vehicle."

Dunn: "Like, I'm the f***ing victim here. I was the one who was victimized."

JUST YESTERDAY, THE PROSECUTION RELEASED NINE RECORDED CALLS MADE IN THE WEEKS AFTER DUNN SHOT AND KILLED 17-YEAR-OLD JORDAN DAVIS OUTSIDE A FLORIDA GAS STATION.

DUNN FELT HE WAS THE VICTIM.

Dunn: "I mean, I don't know how else to put it. They attacked me. I'm the victim. I'm the victor, but I was the victim too."

IN ANOTHER CALL WITH HIS FIANCEE, DUNN SHARED HIS NEGATIVE PERCEPTION ABOUT THE TEENS HE OPENED FIRE ON FOLLOWING AN ARGUMENT OVER LOUD MUSIC.

Dunn: "When the police said that these guys didn't have a record I was like, you know, I wonder if they're just flying under the radar."

Rouer: "Right."

Dunn: "Because they were bad."

IN ANOTHER, HE REHEARSED THE ARGUMENT HE MIGHT MAKE TO CONVINCE A JUDGE TO RELEASE HIM ON BOND.

"I acted within the law, though with a tragic outcome. Please grant me this bond so that I may return home to my family and prepare to defend that which I value second most: my freedom."

BUT DUNN WILL NOT BE FREED - HE'S FACING A RE-TRIAL - AND AT LEAST 60 YEARS BEHIND BARS WHEN HE'S SENTENCED NEXT MONTH.

JUROR NUMBER 4 BELIEVES DUNN HAD OPTIONS THAT WOULD HAVE AVOIDED ALL THIS ENTIRELY.

Valerie: "Roll your window up. Ignore the taunting. Move a parking spot over. That's my feeling."

THEY WERE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE BALMY 64-DEGREE WEATHER IN OMAHA, NEBRASKA

. ON THE GOLF COURSE!

BUT WITH THAT HOPE. COMES FRESH PROBLEMS.

ALL THAT MELTING SNOW AND ICE IS SWELLING RIVERS. OVERLOADING STORM DRAINS.

. AND CAUSING MAJOR PROBLEMS ON OUR ROOFTOPS.

IN EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA. WET, HEAVY SNOW COLLAPSED A CARPORT. TRAPPING A

MAN IN HIS 70'S UNDERNEATH.

CREWS HAD TO CUT THROUGH THE ROOF TO PULL HIM OUT.

AND IN BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA. THE INDIANA UNIVERSITY MEN'S BASKETBALL GAME

WAS CANCELLED. AFTER A 50-POUND PIECE OF METAL TRIM FELL FROM THE ARENA

CEILING. DAMAGING THE SEATS BELOW. APPARENTLY GIVING WAY FROM THE PRESSURE

OF MELTING ICE AND SNOW.

BUT WHILE SNOW-WEARY AMERICANS ENJOY THE WARMER TEMPERATURES. FORECASTERS

SAY. DON'T GET USED TO IT.

ANOTHER SHOT OF VERY COLD AIR IS COMING BACK INTO THE EAST AND MIDWEST.

LATE NEXT WEEK. Return to index of stories...


ULTRASOUND STEAKS-VO PLASMA


JOHN MULLER REPORTING.

CATTLE PRODUCERS ARE PASSING ON THE HIGH COST OF BEEF TO YOU THE CONSUMER.

NOW THEY'RE CONSIDERING A TOOL FROM THE MEDICAL INDUSTRY.

MICK KJAR TELLS US HOW THE USE OF ULTRA SOUND MAY MAKE GROWING BEEF MORE EFFICIENT. Return to index of stories...


ULTRASOUND STEAKS-PKG


IT STARTS OUT LIKE ANY OTHER ULTRA-SOUND. FIRST A LITTLE SHAVING, THEN A LITTLE LUBE-ING.

"just a little old regular vegetable oil. That makes good uses of kitchen cooking supplies."

BUT THEN IT GETS MUCH DIFFERENT THAN YOUR TYPICAL ULTRASOUND.

"the first one is between the 12th and 13th rib, and then we go right over the top of that loin. And for those of you at home this would be right where your ribeye steaks come from. So based on the different tissue densities we can differentiate between different muscling patterns and between fat and muscle".

And DETERMINE IF THIS STEER IS EVEN ABLE TO PRODUCE U.S.D.A. PRIME EVEN BEFORE IT GOES INTO THE FEEDLOT.

AND IF IT CAN. IT WILL GET THE BEST FEED TO MAXIMIZE IT'S PROFITABILITY. OR ADDED VALUE. THE ANIMALS THAT AREN'T GENETICALLY PREDISPOSED TO GROWING THE BEST MEAT WON'T HAVE THE BEST FEED WASTED ON THEM.

THAT WILL SAVE THE FARMER MONEY AND GROW THAT JUICY T-BONE OR ROAST IN THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY.

"and with the most efficient care, with good nutrients, with good stewardship we can turn these animals into the high quality product our consumers demand". Return to index of stories...


ULTRASOUND STEAKS-OC


MICK KJAR REPORTING.

USING ULTRA-SOUND TO DETERMINE QUALITY IS NOT NEW IN THE MEAT INDUSTRY.

BUT USING IT TO FIND THE BEST CUTS OF MEAT IS NEW. Return to index of stories...

WOMEN WEIGHT LOSS-PKG


TAMMY AND CHRIS GARNER WORK OUT TOGETHER REGULARLY; ALTHOUGH THEY'VE BOTH LOST A LITTLE WEIGHT TAMMY SAYS IT'S MUCH TOUGHER FOR HER

"You have to work hard. as opposed to my husband who stops eating two cheeseburgers and the loses ten pounds"

WE'VE ALL HAD THE SAME FRUSTRATION; WE WATCH OUR DIET AND GAIN WEIGHT; IN ALL CASES IT HAS TO DO WITH METABOLISM; SOME OF US JUST BURN CALORIES FASTER THAN OTHERS GENERALLY SPEAKING STUDIES SHOW WOMEN BURN CALORIES SLOWER THAN MEN; RECENT RESEARCH SHOWED THAT ONE REASON MAY BE AN ENZYME

"it could be increased as much as nine fold in the female not the male"

TWO OTHER BODILY CHEMICALS MAKE IT WORSE AS WOMEN AGE; WHEN THEY'RE YOUNG; HIGH LEVELS OF THE HORMONE ESTROGEN HELP WOMEN'S BODIES BURN FAT;

AS THEY AGE ANDESTROGEN DROPS THEY DON'T BURN AS MANY CALORIES; AND THE FAT HOLDING ENZYME GETS EVEN MORE ACTIVE

"males are prone to this throughout life in women its estrogen dependent and food quality dependent"

THE GOOD NEWS; YOU CAN USE THIS INFORMATION TO YOUR ADVANTAGE; TO SORT OF TRICK YOUR BODY INTO LOSING INSTEAD OF GAINING WEIGHT

LOWER THIRDS;

1-FOOD QUALITY; AVOID PRESERVATIVES AND TRANS FATS AND SATURATED FATS

2- EAT FATS EARLY IN THE DAY WHEN THEY CAN BE BURNED OFF

3-THE SAME WITH CARBS; POTATOES, PASTA, BREAD AND CORN

4- WHICH MEANS LIMIT CARBS AND FATS AFTER 4PM

5- ALWAYS EAT BREAKFAST; THAT STIMULATES THE BODY TO RELEASE FAT BURNING HORMONES

6-DO EXERCISE

EXERCISING DOES NOT HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS AS MUCH AS DIET; BUT OVER TIME IT TURNS FAT TO MUSCLE; AND MUSCLE BURNS MORE CALORIES THAN FAT

ALL SIX STEPS ARE MEANT TO TELL YOUR BODY IT NEEDS TO USE FAT INSTEAD OF STORING IT; IN A SENSE YOU'RE JUST MAKING IT MORE EFFICIENT; SO YOU CAN STAY SLIM YOUR WHOLE LIFE THROUGH Return to index of stories...

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

High pressure near Florida will continue a dry and mostly sunny pattern this

afternoon and tomorrow with highs aiming for the middle 80s. A surge of

tropical moisture will arrive on Friday.mixing some more clouds with our

sunshine, and perhaps triggering 1 or 2 stray showers. Steering winds from

the SW would suggest that Friday's shower activity would favor inland areas.

A frontal system will reach North Florida Friday night, and stall out through

the weekend. That would give SW Florida a partly sunny - warm, and humid

Saturday and Sunday with a chance for a stray shower each day. Return to index of stories...
