SPRING TRAINING-TRX SS TOPS OBX


IT'S ANOTHER BIG DAY FOR SPRING TRAINING BASEBALL,

AND THAT MEANS EXTRA TRAFFIC AROUND THE BALL PARKS THIS AFTERNOON.

BOTH THE RED SOX AND TWINS HAVE GAMES IN ABOUT ONE HOUR.

JUST UNDER SIX MILES FROM EACH OTHER.

THAT MEANS TRAFFIC ON DANIELS PARKWAY IS CROWDED.

NBC2'S STEVE CAMPION IS LIVE FROM JETBLUE PARK WITH A LOOK AT CONDITIONS.

STEVE? Return to index of stories...


SPRING TRAINING-REM-7


UNDER AN HOUR TO GO BEFORE THE SOX TAKE ON THE BALTIMORE ORIOLES -

YOU CAN SEE CARS CONTINUE TO POUR IN HERE.

WHAT MAKES THIS SO DIFFERENT THIS SEASON -

JUST DOWN THE ROAD,

THE TWINS PLAY THE PITTSBURGH PIRATES AT THE SAME TIME. Return to index of stories...


SPRING TRAINING-VO


THAT MEANS -

THOUSANDS OF CARS ARE HEADED INTO BOTH JETBLUE PARK AND HAMMOND STADIUM.

LEE COUNTY DEPUTIES ARE STANDING BY TO DIRECT TRAFFIC AND MAKE SURE THINGS GO AS SMOOTHLY AS POSSIBLE.

SIGNS ARE UP -

WARNING DRIVERS TO TAKE ANOTHER ROUTE *IF* YOU'RE NOT HEADING OUT TO THE GAME.

WE TALKED WITH A LOT OF FANS -

ARRIVING EARLY, TELLING US THEY'RE JUST HAPPY TO BE PART OF THE ACTION. Return to index of stories...


SPRING TRAINING-SOTVO


Alan Caldwell, Sox Fan

"Obviously, the Red Sox won the World Series last year so everybody is wanting to come. We wanted to be proactive and beat the traffic and get down here."

Sharon Avair, Sox Fan

"We left early and we're not in a rush to get back."

THE BIG ISSUE IS GOING TO BE LATER THIS AFTERNOON.

THE GAMES START AT 1:05 - MEANING THEY'RE GOING TO LET OUT AT RUSH HOUR. Return to index of stories...


SPRING TRAINING-REM-7


SO IF YOU'RE WATCHING US IN THE OFFICE OR PLANNING TO BE TRAVELING NEAR THIS AREA LATER -

DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND AVOID DANIELS PARKWAY IF POSSIBLE.

AT JETBLUE ALONE -

BETWEEN FOUR AND FIVE THOUSAND CARS WILL HIT THE ROAD ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

BILL NEELY REPORTS FROM PERTH, AUSTRALIA. Return to index of stories...


MISSING PLANE-PKG


MORE CLUES FROM SPACE BUT FRUSTRATINGLY AT SEA NOTHING FOUND TODAY.

IT WAS ON SUNDAY THAT A FRENCH SATELLITE PHOTOGRAPHED 122 OBJECTS, MOST OF THEM SMALL, BUT ONE 75-FEET-LONG.

NOW THAT'S THE LARGEST NUMBER OF OBJECTS TO BE PHOTOGRAPHED SO FAR, AND THEY WERE ALL IN A FAIRLY SMALL AREA, 300-SQUARE MILES.

"It is not very far from the objects sighted by the Chinese government which is over here, and the Australian government which is over there. So this is still the most credible lead that we have."

THE PROBLEM IS THERE'S A DISCONNECT BETWEEN WHAT IS BEING PHOTOGRAPHED FROM SPACE AND WHAT THE CREWS BASED HERE CAN ACTUALLY SEE FROM 300 OR 200 FEET ABOVE THE OCEAN.

THERE HAVE BEEN DOZENS OF MISSIONS SO FAR.

VERY, VERY LITTLE HAS BEEN SEEN AND NOTHING HAS BEEN POSITIVELY IDENTIFIED AS WRECKAGE.

"Today 12 planes went out. The visibility was very poor indeed. The bad news is that more bad weather is on the way. Bill Neely, NBC News, Perth, Western Australia." Return to index of stories...

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.

SUNNY, BREEZY AND COOL TODAY

Now that the cold front is past Southwest Florida, the cool, breezy weather is here. We'll see lots of sunshine today, but afternoon highs will only warm into the lower 70s. Winds from the northeast will be around 10 - 15 mph with gusts near 20 - 25 mph.

Into tonight, we'll start to see a few clouds coming back into the forecast. Overnight lows will still be well below average as we drop into the lower 50s with some upper 40s in inland cold spots. Through the next few days, cloud cover, temperatures, and humidity will all be on the increase. Highs will be back into the lower 80s by Friday.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ALLERGY PROOFING YOUR DAY.

THIS IS SOME REALLY HELPFUL ADVICE FROM ALLERGISTS AND DOCTORS ABOUT HOW YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR DAILY ROUTINE TO AVOID CERTAIN TRIGGERS. DOCTORS SAY ONE OF THE BIGGEST THINGS YOU CAN DO IS TO START YOUR ALLERGY MEDICATIONS EVEN BEFORE YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS.

FOR MOST PEOPLE, TREE AND GRASS POLLEN IS TO BLAME FOR THOSE HORRIBLE ALLERGIES.

TRY NOT TO OPEN YOUR WINDOWS IN THE MORNING WHEN THE POLLEN COUNT IS HIGH.

CHANGE YOUR AC FILTERS TO REMOVE POLLEN, DUST AND MOLD.

OR CONSIDER BUYING AN AIR PURIFER WITH A HEPA FILTER

EXPERTS SAY WEAR SUNGLASSES, AS THEY BLOCK AIRBORNE ALLERGENS FROM GETTING INTO YOUR EYES

ONE HUGE STEP EXPERTS SUGGEST IS TAKING AN ANTIHISTAMINE BEFORE BED.

IT MIGHT MEAN YOU WAKE UP FREE OF SYMPTOMS. CONSIDER READING WEATHER REPORTS -- OR THERE'S A COOL APP CALLED POLLEN DOT COM "ALLERGY ALERT."

THAT'LL GIVE YOU POLLEN COUNTS. Return to index of stories...

NEW IRS SCAM-PKG


THE VOICE ON THE OTHER END CLAIMS THERE ARE CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST YOU.

"we are calling from the tax crime investigation unit."

IN SOME CASES THE CALLER I-D LOOKS LIKE IT'S FROM THE IRS.

AND THE CALLER MAY KNOW THE LAST FOUR DIGITS OF YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER.

A SUBURBAN CHICAGO VIEWER WAS SUSPICIOUS. SO HE RECORDED THE CALLER.

"there is a notice issued on your name and there are serious allegations pressed against your name."

THE TREASURY INSPECTOR GENERAL SAYS IT'S THE LARGEST PHONE SCAM OF ITS KIND.

CALLERS WHO CLAIM TO BE FROM THE IRS ARE TELLING INTENDED VICTIMS THEY OWE TAXES AND MUST PAY USING A PRE-PAID CARD.

SCAMMERS SAY UNLESS PAYMENT IS MADE IMMEDIATELY IT COULD MEAN LOSING A DRIVERS LICENSE, A BUSINESS, OR BEING DEPORTED.

SO FAR THOUSANDS OF VICTIMS HAVE COLLECTIVELY PAID MORE THAN ONE MILLION DOLLARS TO WHOEVER'S BEHIND THE SCAM.

"As soon as someone pretending to be IRS will tell you that you owe money and if you don't pay you're gonna be arrested, that's a clear sign that that is not the IRS who is on the phone."

ACCORDING TO THE GOVERNMENT. THE SCAMMER MAY EVEN CALL A SECOND TIME.CLAIMING TO BE POLICE AND THE CALLER ID SUPPORTS THEIR CLAIM. Return to index of stories...

JASON BEISEL REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


OSPREY ON A CRANE-PKG


WITH THE SURROUNDING WATER AND PANORAMIC VIEWS -- TWO NEW RESIDENTS DECIDED

TO CALL DOWNTOWN TAMPA HOME.

Barb Walker/St. Petersburg Audubon Society: 54:27 - "They like to have a lot

of space around them so this is a really common spot for them."

SO IT'S NO WONDER WHY THESE OSPREYS STARTED BUILDING THEIR NEST HERE.

THE ONLY PROBLEM -- IT SITS ATOP THIS 150-FOOT CRANE helping BUILD TAMPA'S

11-MILLION-DOLLAR RIVERWALK.

Tom Charles/Johnson Brothers Project Engineer: 12:33 - "We noticed them

yesterday. Our best guess is it happened over the weekend while we were gone

."

SINCE OSPREYS ARE FEDERALLY PROTECTED -- moving THEM isn't EASY.

Barb: 55:55 - "If there are eggs and young you really can't take the nest."

MEANING JOHNSON BROTHERS -- THE COMPANY DOING THE WORK -- WOULD NOT BE ABLE

TO OPERATE THE CRANE UNTIL THE EGGS HATCHED -- COSTING THEM THOUSANDS OF

DOLLARS A DAY AND DELAYING CONSTRUCTION OF THE RIVERWALK FOR MONTHS.

THE AUDUBON SOCIETY came to check THE NEST to see if it COULD BE relocated

BEFORE THESE LOVE BIRDS start a family.

Barb: 56:11 - "We caught this in time."

03:34 - "Tell them to go as slow as they can."

"Go ahead and lower it as slow as you can."

Jason Beisel: "Shortly after the crane came down you can see workers began

installing wires and that cone as a temporary fix until they can figure out

a way to keep the birds from coming back."

Tom: 13:24 - "I'm going to get with the superintendent and we'll come up

with a plan." Return to index of stories...

NATS: girls on playground

Chemotherapy to treat a rare form of childhood cancer left her without hair.

Delaney Clements SOT

"People would call me a boy sometimes. They would give me dirty looks and stare at me all the time."

Her friend, nine-year-old Kamryn Renfro, wanted to make Delaney feel less alone, so she asked Delaney's mother to shave her/i head.

Wendy Campbell SOT

"I was like, 'Kamryn, I can't do it. I really got to talk to your mom.'"

But Kamryn persisted, and her mom approved.

Kamryn Renfro SOT:

"It felt like the right thing to do."

Delaney Clements SOT

"It made me feel happy that I had someone there for me and I wasn't the only one to be bald as a girl."

The girls are different ages.go to different schools.but without her hair, Kamryn could give back a little of what chemo took away.

Wendy Campbell SOT

I was kind of taken aback that at such a young age she wanted to do something so bold."

So bold it got attention. Kamryn's school in Grand Junction, Colorado, said she couldn't go back until her hair grew /iback. Under the charter school's strict dress code: "shaved heads are not permitted."

Delaney Clements SOT

"I felt bad for her because she was excited to go to school and show everybody what she did."

Kamryn's mom took to Facebook.

"I have to wake up a little girl tomorrow," Jamie Renfro wrote, "who was excited to go to school and talk to her peers about what she had done and why."

Then, something else went viral.

Jamie Renfro SOT:

"We knew from the beginning that they had policies and procedures, and we were trying to go about the right channels to get that changed."

Last night, they did.

NATS: school board vote.

The school board voted three-to-one to let Kamryn come back to school.

Kamryn Renfro SOT:

"I thought that people might make fun of me but now that I actually got to go to school they actually didn't make fun of me."

A brave young girl who helped fight her friend's cancer.and taught her school /ia lesson.

PLAYER SAVES UMPIRE-VO PLASMA


IN BASEBALL, IT'S THE UMPIRE WHO TELLS A PLAYER, "YOU'RE OUT," OR "YOU'RE SAFE."

BUT AT A HIGH SCHOOL GAME IN GEORGIA, IT WAS A PLAYER WHO RAN TO HOME PLATE.TO SAVE THE UMPIRE.

JON SHIREK REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


PLAYER SAVES UMPIRE-PKG


SOME OF US GO THROUGH OUR WHOLE LIVES AND NEVER FIND OUT. IF WE'D COME THROUGH IN THE CLUTCH.

AT 16, ROCKDALE COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL JV FIRST BASEMAN ALEX NORWOOD FOUND OUT. WHEN IT'S THE BOTTOM OF THE 9TH WITH TWO OUTS AND AND YOU'RE AT BAT TO WIN THE GAME. HE FOUND OUT WHAT HE WOULD DO.

AND WE'RE NOT JUST TALKING BASEBALL. WE'RE TALKING REAL LIFE.

"The ump just collapsed."

THE HOME PLATE UMPIRE COLLAPSED AT THE ROCKDALE COUNTY / NEWTON COUNTY JV GAME FRIDAY NIGHT. THIS IS THE UMP, WOODY REAGIN, IN THE SECOND INNING. ONE OF THE PARENTS, ANRAE STRANE, SHOT THE VIDEO WHEN HIS SON WAS AT BAT.

AND WOODY REAGIN, THIS VETERAN UMPIRE, WHEN THE SECOND INNING ENDED.

"He spun around like he'd gotten hit, and he just collapsed."

AN APPARENT HEART ATTACK.

ROCKDALE'S COACH, JERRID HARRIS, RAN TO HOME PLATE.

"I asked, who all knows CPR? And the voice behind me was confident, quick. And said, I know how to do CPR, and I'm ready to go.

/ And I turned around and I saw Alex. / He got in there and started chest compressions immediately."

ALEX NORWOOD HAD ONLY LEARNED CPR TWO WEEKS EARLIER. IN ORDER TO EARN HIS LIFEGUARD CERTIFICATION.

"And I checked for a pulse and he didn't have anything. So I started doing compressions, and I only did the first set of thirty compressions before the EMT got there, so I really don't feel like I did that much."

WOODY REAGIN WAS ALIVE WHEN THE AMBULANCE ARRIVED.

HE'S STILL IN THE HOSPITAL,

AND THE TEAM JUST LEARNED HE'S IMPROVING.

COACH HARRIS HAS ALWAYS TRIED TO TEACH HIS PLAYERS. TO BE READY. WHEN IT'S TIME TO MAKE THE PLAY.

"You're given skills, whether it's baseball skills or life skills, and when it's time to step into the batter's box, and you hope you don't ever have to in a situation like that, but when it's time to step in the batter's box, you go to swing."

ALEX NORWOOD CAME THROUGH. IN THE CLUTCH. Return to index of stories...

ANY PARENTS WHO VAPE OR USE E-CIGARETTES -- LISTEN UP!

PAIGE HILL HAS THE STORY EVERY PARENT SHOULD SEE -- Return to index of stories...


ECIG JUICE POISONS KID-PKG


THE NUMBER OF OKLAHOMA KIDS GETTING THEIR HANDS ON LIQUID NICOTINE USED TO REFILL E-CIGARETTES AND BEING RUSHED TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM GROWS EACH YEAR.

REN GAULRAPP'S FOUR-YEAR-OLD HAPPENS TO BE ONE OF THEM.

We hear a little noise, come in and he has taken the lid off of all of them and has this liquid everywhere. He`s got it all over him. He`s been eating it. The liquid itself is very sweet. There`s not really anything in it in the lower nicotine levels that are going to discourage a child from wanting to play in them.

HE VOMITED ALL DAY AND THEN SUFFERED PAINFUL WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS.

BUT DOCTORS SAID HE WAS LUCKY GAULRAPP'S E-LIQUID HAD LOW NICOTINE LEVELS.

JERRY HANCE AT FLAVOR VAPOR NORTH SAYS THE HIGHER THE NICOTINE LEVEL, THE MORE DANGEROUS THE LIQUID.

There's hundreds of poisons in every household. Nicotine since it's came about, whether it's in a cigarette or in a pipe, no matter what it is, it is a poison.

THE E-JUICE AT HIS SHOP IS MADE BY CHEMISTS IN A LAB WHILE MOST STORES IN OKLAHOMA MAKE THEIRS IN HOUSE. HE THINKS THAT MIGHT BE WHERE SOME OF THE LETHAL LIQUIDS ARE COMING FROM.

TO SOLVE THAT PROBLEM, HANCE SAYS REGULATION IS THE ANSWER.

You're never going to be able to make a product and sell it without it being regulated. Come in regulate it and make everybody go to a lab.

THE ACCIDENT HASN'T STOPPED GAULRAPP FROM USING E-CIGARETTES, THE LIQUID NICOTINE AT HER HOME JUST GOES ON A HIGHER SHELF NOW AND SHE'S ADDED TO HER SON'S ?DO NOT TOUCH? LIST.

It smells like candy, it really isn't -- this really can hurt you. Return to index of stories...
