BOLD ENOUGH TO EXPOSE HER YOUNG CHILDREN TO DRUGS.

THIS MOTHER IS ACCUSED OF TRAFFICKING COCAINE.

JUDGE

04:05:11-:14

I believe it's appropriate to set a bond of 50 thousand dollars on that felony charge.

AND CARRYING DANGEROUS NARCOTICS.

ACCORDING TO INVESTIGATORS, THE COKE WAS WITHIN REACH OF HER 2 YEAR OLD TODDLER AND 11 MONTH OLD INFANT.

JUDGE

04:04:46-:48

There appears to be probably cause to support your arrest and detention.

TODAY FRANCIA POMPILUS AND THIS MAN, STEVE GABRIEL MADE THEIR FIRST APPEARANCES.

THEY BOTH FACE DRUG AND CHILD NEGLECT CHARGES.

STANDUP

03:54:33-:42

The suspects may have been able to get away with it all if they had just simply come to a complete stop at 27th Street Southwest before turning onto White Blvd.

BUT DETECTIVES SAY THEY DIDN'T.

AND A MILE AND A HALF DOWN THE ROAD, DEPUTIES PULLED THEIR CAR OVER AT PINE RIDGE ROAD AND COLLIER BOULEVARD.

INSIDE THAT CAR THEY SAY THEY UNCOVERED MORE THAN 100 GRAMS OF COCAINE.

DEPUTIES ALSO REPORTED FINDING NEARLY 14 GRAMS OF POT AND ALSO PRESCRIPTION PILLS.

Can you just give me one moment so I can total it for her your honor? Ok.

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.

MORE WARMTH FOR THE WEEKEND

We've closed the work week with plenty of cloud cover courtesy of a frontal system in North Florida. A few showers will be possible early this evening, with temps holding in the 70s. Fog may again develop inland overnight, with mild lows in the upper 60s.

We will start the weekend Saturday on a somewhat cloudy note. The front will stay north of the area, but will provide enough moisture for clouds and possible a few showers inland. Temps stay warm Saturday, with highs in the mid 80s.

Clouds diminish for Sunday, with partly cloudy skies expected. A very isolated shower is possible, but most areas will stay dry. Highs on Sunday again climb into the mid 80s.

The warmth and the humidity stays in place to start next week. We open Monday with partly cloudy skies and again a chance of a very isolated shower. Highs on Monday again will be in the mid 80s.

Tuesday will be a repeat of Monday, with partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid 80s.

The frontal boundary finally pushes towards Southwest Florida mid to late week. It will bring more clouds and rain showers to the area. Right now, the best chance for rain looks to be late Wednesday into early Thursday.

Temps will cool to close out next week, with highs only in the low 70s. Return to index of stories...

STANDING ON A PODIUM DURING A MEDAL CEREMONY IS THE ULTIMATE HONOR FOR AN OLYMPIC ATHLETE.

BUT IS THERE MORE AT STAKE THAN COUNTRY PRIDE?

DAVID IN FORT MYERS ASKED THE GOOD QUESTION:

At one point, I didn't have any faith in myself. I didn't believe in myself.

BOB BEAMON CHANGED THE WORLD'S BELIEF IN WHAT WAS HUMANLY POSSIBLE.

A number of things it was just a perfect day.

everything was just in sync.

HIS LONG JUMP AT THE 19-68 SUMMER GAMES IN MEXICO CITY BECAME KNOWN AS THE 'LEAP OF THE CENTURY.'

BEAMON ACTUALLY OUT-JUMPED THE MEASURING EQUIPMENT.

and they had to go to Ace hardware to get a manual measuring tape.

IT TOOK OLYMPIC OFFICIALS SEVERAL MINUTES TO MEASURE HIS JUMP OF 29 FEET, 2 AND A HALF INCHES.

as they say - beautiful.

HIS GOLD-MEDAL WINNING LONG-JUMP *STILL STANDS AS AN OLYMPIC RECORD NEARLY A HALF-CENTURY LATER.

WHILE BEAMON DIDN'T WIN MONEY THAT DAY, HE EARNED WORLD-WIDE FANS.

Holy mackerel he really did something.

TO THE QUESTION OF WHETHER CURRENT ATHLETES GET REWARDED FOR WINNING.

Well the answer is yes, now they do.

AMERICANS WHO WIN GOLD - ARE GIVEN 25-THOUSAND DOLLARS.

cha-ching

Really? I had no idea.

SILVER MEDALISTS ARE AWARDED 15-THOUSAND.

MEMBERS OF TEAM U-S-A WHO WIN BRONZE TAKE HOME 10-THOUSAND.

THOSE EARNINGS ARE TAXED BY THE U-S GOVERNMENT.

THE U-S OLYMPIC COMMITTEE IS A PRIVATE ENTITY THAT GETS ITS MONEY THROUGH CORPORATE SPONSORS, THE SALE OF BROADCAST RIGHTS, AND TRADEMARK INCOME.

DESPITE CASH BONUSES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR ENDORSEMENTS, BEAMON DOESN'T RESENT CURRENT ATHLETES.

I applaud them. I want them to get as much as they can.

AFTER '68, BEAMON DIDN'T COMPETE IN ANOTHER OLYMPICS. BUT DON'T PUT IT PAST HIM.

I was thinking about coming out of retirement too.

Chad: giving it a shot in 2016?

Bob: Return to index of stories...
