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.

Tranquil weather continues"

It was a beautiful weekend across Southwest Florida, with cool mornings and warm afternoons. A quiet weather pattern will remain in place over the next few days, before another storm system enhances the rainfall potential by late in the week.

We dealt with very little fog this morning and now mostly sunny conditions will be in command of our skies through the afternoon. It will also be another unseasonably warm day with temperatures climbing into the lower to middle 80s away from the coast. A late day gulf breeze will keep our beaches a few degrees cooler in the upper 70s to 80°.

With high humidity tonight and temperatures expected to settle into the lower half of the 60s, we'll more than likely see a few areas of patchy fog by early tomorrow morning.

High pressure will continue to migrate east Tuesday and Wednesday. As a result, our days will stay warm with highs in the middle 80s. Our wind flow will begin to turn more southerly, allowing more moisture to move in across the peninsula keeping overnight temperatures in the middle 60s. A mainly dry weather pattern will stay in place through Wednesday, with showers and storms being a good bet by Thursday as another storm system moves across the northern gulf coast region. Once the rain exits by early Friday, expect clearing skies and a slight cool down heading into next weekend with comfortable humidity values. Return to index of stories...

It's all like a bad dream from the Soviet past:

Russian forces in the thousands seizing territory.armored vehicles lining

the roads.the Russian navy pouring in more forces.and Ukraine's

outgunned, outnumbered troops imprisoned on their own bases by stone-silent

Russian troops.

MORAN AT BASE: "WHY ARE YOU HERE?"

The big question now: Will Vladimir Putin get away with it?

Secretary of State Kerry told George Stephanopoulos vowed a tough response

from the US and allies.

SOT: KERRY: "Russia may be able to invade Crimea, but in the end, Russia

will isolate itself."

Already--the markets are punishing Putin, with the rouble--Russia's

currency--plunging to an all-time low.

But the deed is done--and here in Crimea--most people have welcomed the

Russian troops--rejecting the revolution in the other half of their country

last week.

It's calm on the surface , but as we spoke with a woman holding a

Ukrainian flag--a tiny gesture of defiance against Russia--we saw the

fierce passions just below the surface. Return to index of stories...

SENIOR NUDE MODEL-2 SHOT


A FEW DECADES AGO - IT WENT LIKE THIS -

AMERICANS WORK HARD FOR MOST OF THEIR LIVES, THEN RETIRE AND TAKE IT EASY.

NOT TRUE TODAY.

PENSIONS AREN'T WHAT THEY USED TO BE.

KATRINA SMITH INTRODUCES US TO A MAN WHO FOUND A UNIQUE WAY TO MAKE SOME EXTRA MONEY. Return to index of stories...


SENIOR NUDE MODEL-PKG


STEVE MAZZA SPENT 45 YEARS OF HIS LIFE SELF-EMPLOYED.

THAT'S HOW HE ENDED UP LOOKING FOR WORK IN HIS RETIREMENT YEARS.

"In his 6 year career as a nude model, Steve Mazza has had his body drawn some 30,000 times."

THAT'S RIGHT, 6 YEARS. 7 OR 8 CLASSES A WEEK AT COLLEGES AND ART CENTERS.

SO HERE'S HOW IT BEGAN.

"I was looking for part-time, you know. a little extra money a lot of seniors do that and a friend of mine brought me a newspaper article. an ad of a school looking for a model. He did it as kind of a joke, and he didn't realize I'd act on it impulsively."

HE DID. THE VERY NEXT DAY, HE BOOKED HIS FIRST GIG.

HE'D SHED HIS CLOTHES MORE HOURS EACH WEEK AS HIS POST-RETIREMENT NUDE MODELING CAREER PICKED UP.

BUT THIS CAREER ISN'T FOR THE FAINT OF HEART.

"So I'm standing on the other side of a steel door in an almost dark room and there are 18 students waiting for me to step out of there."

STEP OUT HE DID.

BUT I'LL BET YOUR WONDERING WHAT HIS WIFE THINKS.

PAT MAZZA IS A RETIRED FROM A LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT.

"I know he's comfortable being nude and I've known that for a long time. I think he's doing something that's beneficial to the students. There's a potential there."

"The first question was, 'WHAT??!!'" Steve said. "'You're not really!', and I said, 'Why not? We could use a little extra money, and it's a nice job!'"

INCREASINGLY RETIREES ARE WORKING WELL IN TO THEIR GOLDEN YEARS.

THE TEACHER SAYS IT MIGHT NOT LINE YOUR POCKETS BUT IT COULD HELP OUT.

"Most places are going to pay $10 - $15 per hour, depending on experience and where you're working

TO HELP OTHERS WHO MIGHT BE INTERESTED FIND COMFORT IN THIS LINE OF WORK, STEVE WROTE A BOOK ONLY HE COULD WRITE, "IT TAKES A NAKED MAN TO TELL A NAKED STORY."

"those funny stories like meeting people in public. there's a lot of humor there and my friends always encouraged me they said, there's a story there!"

THERE'S QUITE A BIT OF HUMOR, BUT ALSO SOME SELF REALIZATION, AND IT'S INTERESTING. 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.

Tranquil weather continues"

It was a beautiful weekend across Southwest Florida, with cool mornings and warm afternoons. A quiet weather pattern will remain in place over the next few days, before another storm system enhances the rainfall potential by late in the week.

We dealt with very little fog this morning and now mostly sunny conditions will be in command of our skies through the afternoon. It will also be another unseasonably warm day with temperatures climbing into the lower to middle 80s away from the coast. A late day gulf breeze will keep our beaches a few degrees cooler in the upper 70s to 80°.

With high humidity tonight and temperatures expected to settle into the lower half of the 60s, we'll more than likely see a few areas of patchy fog by early tomorrow morning.

High pressure will continue to migrate east Tuesday and Wednesday. As a result, our days will stay warm with highs in the middle 80s. Our wind flow will begin to turn more southerly, allowing more moisture to move in across the peninsula keeping overnight temperatures in the middle 60s. A mainly dry weather pattern will stay in place through Wednesday, with showers and storms being a good bet by Thursday as another storm system moves across the northern gulf coast region. Once the rain exits by early Friday, expect clearing skies and a slight cool down heading into next weekend with comfortable humidity values. Return to index of stories...
