TRACIE POTTS IS FOLLOWING THE LATEST FROM WASHINGTON. Return to index of stories...


MISSING PLANE-PKG


THE FIRST OF FIVE PLANES TO RETURN FROM TODAY'S SEARCH. FOUND NOTHING.

NOW FRANCE MAY JOIN THE SEARCH:

"They've agreed to assist us with the considerable experience and expertise." "The focus is to reduce the area of search and possible rescue."

THE NAVY'S P-8 WAS LAST TO HEAD OUT.

THE NAVY'S ADVANCED RADAR CAN DETECT SMALL OBJECTS LIKE THE TWO PICKED UP BY AUSTRALIAN SATELLITE.

"It could just be a container that's fallen off a ship. We just don't know."

IF THEY ARE FROM THE MALAYSIAN JET, EXPERTS SAY THAT DEBRIS COULD EXPLAIN WHAT HAPPENED:

"It could give us clues as to the type of impact, was it a high speed impact or just the aircraft breaking up as it was trying to be put down possible intentionally in the water."

THE SMALL GREEN RECTANGLE - THAT'S TODAY'S SEARCH AREA.

IT'S A THREE HOUR FLIGHT FROM THE WEST COAST OF AUSTRALIA. WHICH LEAVES PLANES ONLY TWO HOURS TO SEARCH.

"It's about the most inaccessible spot that you could imagine on the face of the Earth. But if there's ANYTHING down there, we will find it."

TWO SHIPS ARE ALSO IN THE AREA:

THE AREA BEING SEARCHED IS RIGHT AT THE EDGE OF THE RANGE WHERE EXPERTS THINK FLIGHT 370 COULD HAVE GONE.

audio outcue: Tracie Potts, NBC News, WASHINGTON.

THE NAVY IS STILL CALLING THIS A SEARCH AND RESCUE MISSION - HOPEFUL THAT IF THIS FLIGHT ENDED UP HERE, THE PLANE'S BLACK BOX MAY STILL BE PINGING, AS FAR AS 3 MILES BELOW THE SURFACE.

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.

MORNING FOG, THEN MOSTLY SUNNY

We will once again see fog forming in Southwest Florida this morning. That fog will likely linger for a little while and mix out as we head into the mid to late morning time frame. Right now it looks like the fog scenario shouldn't stick around quite as long today as it did yesterday.

By late morning to midday, we'll see mostly sunny skies and that is what we will continue with through the day. Afternoon highs will be near 80 degrees at the beaches and into the mid 80s in inland warm spots.

More cloud cover will begin to arrive as we head through the night, but there could still be some fog for you morning plans on Saturday, too. Lows tonight will be in the mid 60s and tomorrow we'll head back into the low to mid 80s. Through the day Saturday, cloud cover will continue to increase and we could even pick up a stray shower. The best chance for that stray shower will be aimed toward our deeper inland areas. Sunday looks to be a little sunnier without much change in temperatures. Then into next week, we'll see another storm system that will bring the chance for some showers by Tuesday. Return to index of stories...

WAL MART ATTACK-PKG


"You know I would never dream something like that would happen."

ESPECIALLY INSIDE A WALMART STORE. BUT IN THIS SURVEILLANCE VIDEO YOU CAN SEE A YOUNG MAN GRABBING AT LINDA ANDRADE'S NECK. TRYING TO PULL OFF HER GOLD CHAIN GIVEN TO HER BY HER HUSBAND, 30 YEARS AGO.

"And I just yelled at him. I think I said, what do you think you're doing? That's mine"

THE THIEF QUICKLY WALKED OUT OF THE STORE AND JUMPED IN THIS WHITE CAR LEAVING LINDA DISORIENTED.

"I just kept yelling Help, security, help"

LINDA SAYS SHE WALKED ALL THE WAY TO THE FRONT OF THE WALMART PLEADING FOR HELP BUT NO ONE CAME UNTIL SHE GOT TO THE EXIT AND WAS MET BY AN UNDERCOVER SECURITY GUARD. THE STORE MANAGER THEN SHOWED UP AND LINDA EXPLAINED WHAT HAPPENED.

"And she said, well if you want to make a police report, she says you'll be here 2 or 3 hours."

SHOCKED AND BRUISED BY THE BRAZEN ATTACK LINDA WONDERED WHY THE CRIME WASN'T BEING TREATED MORE SERIOUSLY BY THE STORE MANAGER OR SECURITY.

"It was just like no big deal. even made my think well maybe I'm making something out of nothing."

SO LINDA, NOT WANTING TO WAIT TWO TO THREE HOURS, WENT HOME AND CALLED POLICE. WITHIN 10 MINUTES OFFICERS ARRIVED. SAN BERNADINO POLICE LIEUTENANT RICH LAWHEAD SAYS THE DELAY IN CALLING 911 ACTUALLY HELPED THE SUSPECT GET AWAY.

"Maybe an arriving officer would have seen the suspect, that kind of stuff."

WALMART RELEASED A STATEMENT APOLOGIZING SAYING IN PART "WHILE WE CAN'T ALWAYS PREVENT CRIME FROM HAPPENING, WE CAN DEFINITELY DO A BETTER JOB OF HOW WE RESPOND IN A SITUATION LIKE THIS."

LINDA APPRECIATES THE APOLOGY BUT SHE AND HER HUSBAND AREN'T SURE WHAT TO DO ABOUT THAT GIFT HE GAVE HER 30-YEARS AGO.

"Because it's frayed on the ends you know. Its a rope chain and im not sure how they are going to fix it." Return to index of stories...

IN FACT, PROPANE DRIVEN OUTDOOR POWER EQUIPMENT WAS THE TALK OF A TRADE SHOW LAST FALL IN KENTUCKY.

"Propane produces 80% less toxins or carbons than gasoline or diesel"

THIS YEAR MORE THAN EVER, AMERICANS WILL BE USING OUTDOOR POWER GEAR. POWERED BY SOMETHING OTHER THAN GASOLINE.

IT MIGHT EVEN BE A HYBRID.LIKE RAVEN'S MULTI-PURPOSE VEHICLE.THAT ALSO HAS A LAWNMOWER DECK.

"You can have an electric vehicle which will run about 45 minutes just on batteries but you've always got that gasoline engine there for backup"

MORE LIKELY, THE EQUIPMENT WILL BE BATTERY-POWERED. RUNNING MOTORS LIKE CORE EQUIPMENT'S REVOLUTIONARY CIRCUIT BOARD MOTOR.

"They're building billions of circuit boards a day for cellphones, computers and everything else. So, we're just taking that to motors"

THE PRESIDENT ORDERED A

SECOND ROUND OF THEM THURSDAY.

JOHN KARL HAS THE STORY. Return to index of stories...


RUSSIA G8-PKG


SCRIPT:

TAPE

This time President Obama is going right at President Putin - aiming

sanctions at his chief of staff, his billionaire friends and a bank so tied

to Putin's associates it could be called "Putin's Piggyback."

SOT OBAMA -- 11:05:32

THESE ARE ALL CHOICES THAT THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT HAS MADE, CHOICES THAT

HAVE BEEN REJECTED BY THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY AS WELL AS THE GOVERNMENT

OF UKRAINE.

The move comes amid reports Russia has amassed some 20,000 troops on its

border with Ukraine - a move President Obama warned could be a sign Putin

may be about to go further.

SOT OBAMA -- 11:06:25

THE WORLD IS WATCHING WITH GRAVE CONCERN AS RUSSIA HAS POSITIONED ITS

MILITARY IN A WAY THAT COULD LEAD TO FURTHER INCURSIONS

But right as President Obama was speaking. Putin slapped his own

sanctions, including a ban on travel to Russia on top US officials -

including two top Obama aides and Republicans John McCain and Speaker of the

House John Boehner, which include a ban on traveling to Russia.

McCain mocked the Russian move, tweeting "I guess this means my spring break

in Siberia is off"

But the back-and-forth puts Russia-US tensions at the highest level since

the Cold War. And Russia is vowing to retaliate in the days ahead. Return to index of stories...

NEW STREET DRUG-trxONCAM


OFFICIALS HAVE A WARNING ABOUT A DANGEROUS NEW STREET DRUG.

IT'S CALLED "PHEN-AZ-EPAM."

IT WAS DEVELOPED IN RUSSIA BUT GAINING POPULARITY IN THE U-S.

SCOTT GORDON REPORTS FROM TEXAS WHERE USE OF THE DRUG HAS SPIKED RAPIDLY AND BEEN A FACTOR IN A NUMBER OF DEATHS. Return to index of stories...


NEW STREET DRUG-PKG


IT HAPPENED THE NIGHT OF JANUARY 7TH.

18-YEAR-OLD WILLIAM BRAWLEY -- A SENIOR -- WAS HIT BY A CAR WHEN HE AND TWO OTHERS TRIED TO RUN ACROSS BUSY LOOP 820 AFTER HIS OWN CAR RAN OUT OF GAS.

AT FIRST, HIS PARENTS DIDN'T UNDERSTAND.

"There was a bridge right in front of them."

"They could have just crossed over the bridge. It was 50 yards in front of them."

BUT NOW, THE RESULTS OF TOXICOLOGY TESTS MAY PROVIDE A CLUE.

BRAWLEY HAD A RUSSIAN DRUG CALLED "PHENAZEPAM" IN HIS SYSTEM. AND IT LIKELY EFFECTED HIS JUDGMENT.

"It wasn't the cause of his death. He was hit by a car. But it could have played a role."

PHENAZEPAM ACTS AS A TRANQUILIZER -- MORE POWERFUL THAN XANAX OR VALIUM.

IT IS LEGALLY SOLD ONLINE AS TABLETS, PILLS OR POWDER, SOMETIMES IN COLORFUL PACKAGING.

"It's scary, if they can order it online and you can take enough of it to kill you. They're worried about marijuana, but this is the demon right here."

IN TARRANT COUNTY, DRUG AGENTS ARE ALARMED.

THE MEDICAL EXAMINER SAYS PHENAZEPAM MAY HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO 9 RECENT DEATHS -- 4 OF THEM IN JUST THE PAST 3 MONTHS.

IT WAS ALSO AMONG THE DRUGS FOUND IN MICHAEL SCHMIDT.

HE WAS THE DALLAS LAWYER WHO CALLED POLICE TO HIS CONDO IN JANUARY, AND THEN SHOT AT ARRIVING OFFICERS BEFORE THEY SHOT AND KILLED HIM.

WILLIAM BRAWLEY'S PARENTS HOPE OTHERS LEARN FROM ALL THIS.

"I just couldn't believe it. I don't want somebody else to lose their child."

"It took a big part of our lives. Our whole family. And we miss him." Return to index of stories...

-REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS--

ON HIS WAY TO HIGH SCHOOL THIS MORNING, 16-YEAR-OLD JUSTIN CASSQUEJO WOULDN'T TALK ABOUT HOW HE ELUDED WHAT WAS BELIEVED TO BE IMPENETRABLE SECURITY AT THE WORLD TRADE CENTER.

CASQUEJO TOLD INVESTIGATORS: "I WALKED AROUND THE CONSTRUCTION SITE AND FIGURED OUT HOW TO ACCESS THE FREEDOM TOWER ROOFTOP. I FOUND A WAY UP THROUGH THE SCAFFOLDING, CLIMBED ONTO THE 6TH FLOOR, AND TOOK THE ELEVATOR UP TO THE 88TH FLOOR. I THEN TOOK THE STAIRCASE UP TO THE 104TH FLOOR. I WENT TO THE ROOFTOP AND CLIMBED THE LADDER ALL THE WAY TO THE ANTENNA."

WEATHER-WX WALL


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.

MORNING FOG, THEN MOSTLY SUNNY

We will once again see fog forming in Southwest Florida this morning. That fog will likely linger for a little while and mix out as we head into the mid to late morning time frame. Right now it looks like the fog scenario shouldn't stick around quite as long today as it did yesterday.

By late morning to midday, we'll see mostly sunny skies and that is what we will continue with through the day. Afternoon highs will be near 80 degrees at the beaches and into the mid 80s in inland warm spots.

More cloud cover will begin to arrive as we head through the night, but there could still be some fog for you morning plans on Saturday, too. Lows tonight will be in the mid 60s and tomorrow we'll head back into the low to mid 80s. Through the day Saturday, cloud cover will continue to increase and we could even pick up a stray shower. The best chance for that stray shower will be aimed toward our deeper inland areas. Sunday looks to be a little sunnier without much change in temperatures. Then into next week, we'll see another storm system that will bring the chance for some showers by Tuesday. Return to index of stories...

WHERE ARE KIDS GETTING THEIR CAFFEINE FIX THESE DAYS?

NOT FROM SODA, ACCORDING TO A NEW REPORT - OR AT LEAST NOT AS MUCH.

CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS SEEM TO BE SWITCHING TO ENERGY DRINKS AND SWEETENED COFFEE DRINKS AS THEIR CAFFEINATED BEVERAGES OF

CHOICE.

AMY OSHIER REPORTS IN TODAYS HEALTH MATTERS. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


PKG:

MOVE OVER SODA- THE BUZZ FOR TODAY'S TEEN HAS SHIFTED GEARS. OVER

THE PAST DECADE CONSUMPTION OF ENERGY DRINKS AND SWEETENED

COFFEE CONCOCTIONS HAS DOUBLED. THE TREND IS NOT EXCITING

DOCTORS.

TWO-SHOT

DR. JULIA FASHNER/FAMILY PRACTITIONER

RUNS:

:29 It says it has 120 milligrams of caffeine-per container. And this is what would be

twice as much as found in a soda size.

IT'S THE CAFFEINE KIDS MAY BE CRAVING, BUT IT'S ALSO WHAT HAS EXPERTS

CONCERNED.

DR. JULIA FASHNER/FAMILY PRACTITIONER

RUNS:

1:35 The issue really is they have smaller a body size than adults and so the caffeine

will have more milligrams in their body system for how much they weigh. And this

will have more safety concerns and more negative side effects for those children or

adolescence than for any adult.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

The shift in preference may be a result of the growing perception of soda as being

linked to obesity. While young people may not guzzle them like they would a soda, they

may not have to- some coffee and energy drinks have up to four times the caffeine of an

equal amount of soda. Only manufacturers aren't required to reveal it.

DR. JULIA FASHNER/FAMILY PRACTITIONER

RUNS:

3:44 It's not branded to soda and it's not branded as anything in the food industry. So

the FDA has no regulatory power over it. And it's sitting right next to the can of soda, it's

sitting right next to the sports drinks.

THE APPEAL TO KIDS MAYBE MARKETING, FLAVOR OR THE BRIEF BOOST

THEY OFFER- EITHER WAY, THE DOWNSIDE MAY BE A BUZZ KILL. FOR LEE
