AS MORE IMAGES COME TO LIGHT THAT SHOW A POSSIBLE DEBRIS FIELD IN THE SOUTHERN INDIAN OCEAN.

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


MISSING PLANE-PKG


Well another very frustrating day for the families and for the crews here.

Only a few of the eleven planes due up today had actually reached the search area when they were ordered back.

Some didn't even take off.

The reason - severe icing in the search area, high turbulence and near zero visibility.

And that weather is expected to continue until midday tomorrow.

"Despite the search and air for two and a half hours we were unable to locate anything visually, as I said the weather wasn't very good for the search."

All the more frustrating because there were more clues today, more satellite images.

This time from Thailand, images that showed about 300 objects, some as long as 40 feet.

So the circumstantial evidence is building of one or two debris fields.

Remember yesterday we had fresh images from the French showing 122 objects and that was about 200 miles from where the Thai satellite photographs were taken this week.

So circumstantial evidence is building, the planes simply can't get there.

And so far there isn't a single piece of debris that has been positively identified, photographed close up, never mind recovered.

REPORTER CLOSE:

SO IT IS A RACE AGAINST TIME AND IT'S ONE IN WHICH WE SEEM TO BE NOT GOING VERY FAR AN ASTONISHING 19 DAYS AFTER THIS PLANE VANISHED.

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.

BREEZY WITH MORE CLOUDS

It is a cool morning across Southwest Florida, but warmer weather is on the way today. Winds will come from the east, turning east-southeasterly at 10-15 mph with gusts near 20 mph. While it won't be as windy as yesterday, it will still be rather breezy. With more of that east to southeasterly turn on the winds, we will warm up today. Afternoon highs are headed to near 80 degrees. With more humidity coming into play we can't rule out a very spotty shower popping up this afternoon. Overnight, we'll see plenty of clouds and we won't be as cool. Expect low temperatures Friday morning to bottom out in the mid 60s with lower 60s inland.

For tomorrow, we'll have cloudy skies and even a few showers showing up by evening.

A cold front pressing its way into Southwest Florida will give scattered showers for Saturday into Sunday. Some of the latest computer guidance suggests that the rain may taper off by Sunday afternoon.so it's possible that the end of the weekend might turn out to be rain-free.

SOME COFFEE CONNOISSEURS CARE ABOUT THEIR ORDERS,

"I like the taste of it too"

"It has many delivery systems latte, espresso, cappuccino.

OTHERS.

ARE JUST SIPPING FOR THE HIGH.

"If it came in a drip, I'd be on it. If I could put a drip in my jugular, I

wouldn't drink it, i'd just drip it in."

NOW, THERE'S A FASTER WAY TO GET THERE.

"People eat coffee beans, i've done that"

STANDUP. If eating or drinking your way to a caffeine coma is just too

slow, or too filling, a new trend popular among teens is coffee smoking.

With homemade videos going viral all over the internet.

"That's weird"

"Do you roll your own? Kind of lumpy I suppose, do you crush them?"

BE IT BEANS OR BITTER GROUNDS. THERE ARE STEP BY STEP SITES SHOWING KIDS

HOW TO SMOKE BOTH.

this and that's kind of the charm of it"

"I'll stick with the regular latte yes"

THE SIDE EFFECTS CAN BE DANGEROUS- BREATHING TROUBLE, DIZZINESS AND VOMITING

BEER ARREST-VO TC MON


AN ARKANSAS WOMAN GOT INTO TROUBLE,

FOR BREASTFEEDING AFTER DRINKING ALCOHOL IN A RESTAURANT.

THE CHARGE WAS DROPPED LAST WEEK.

BUT THE ISSUE OF BREASTFEEDING AND DRINKING - STILL A VERY REAL ONE.

JUJU CHANG SPOKE WITH THAT ARKANSAS MOM. Return to index of stories...


BEER ARREST-PKG


LESS THAN AN HOUR OUTSIDE LITTLE ROCK LIES THE TINY TOWN OF TOAD SUCK,

ARKANSASPOPULATION ROUGHLY 300.

IT'S ALSO HOME FOR TASHA ADAMS, A STAY AT HOME MOTHER OF THREE.

JUJU CHANG

How much do your kids mean to you?

TASHA ADAMS

More than anything in the world.

WITH HER BABY IN TOW, SHE AND HER PARENTS STOPPED FOR DINNER IN THE NEARBY

TOWN OF CONWAY.

TASHA ADAMS

I had a beer, with that, and then I had another one, later on/

BUT THAT'S NOT WHAT JACKIE CONNORS SAYS SHE SAW. THE OFF-DUTY WAITRESS -

SHOWED UP EARLY FOR AN AFTER HOURS STAFF MEETING.

JACKIE CONNORS

There were /two or three, um, drinks in front of her already, when I got

there

JACKIE - WHO HAS AN INFANT DAUGHTER OF HER OWN - CONSULTED HER OWN MOM.

JACKIE CONNORS

She texted me back and said, "Call the police."

JUST AFTER 11 O'CLOCK / POLICE ARRIVED AT THE RESTAURANT

TASHA ADAMS

And they said, ma'am, um, we've got a report that you

were drinking alcohol while breastfeeding. And I said, okay. I didn't know

that was illegal.

IT ISN'T ILLEGAL.

THE OFFICERS MADE A JUDGMENT CALL AND ARRESTED HER / FOR ENDANGERING THE

WELFARE OF A CHILD. HER CHILD.

JUJU CHANG

In, in your opinion, you did nothing wrong.

TASHA ADAMS

Right.

BUT WAS TASHA IN FACT ENDANGERING BABY ANA?

DR. JEN ASHTON

/once in a while to consume a drink,probably will not do any harm for the

baby.

JUJU CHANG

So even the American Academy of Pediatrics does not say zero tolerance.

DR. JEN ASHTON

Correct. They don't say zero.

The district attorney recently dropped Tasha's child endangerment charge

THE MANAGEMENT OF GUSANO'S RESTAURANT WOULDN'T RESPOND TO OUR REPEATED

REQUESTS FOR COMMENT.

BUT THE WAITRESS - JACKIE CONNORS / WAS FIRED THE WEEK AFTER CALLING THE

COPS ON TASHA.

JACKIE CONNORS

If I was ever in that situation again / I would still do the same thing

because that baby can't speak up for itself /

/

TASHA ADAMS

I'll say it 'til the day I die. I'm, I was sober enough to breastfeed my

kid. Return to index of stories...

HOWEVER, THEY DID NOT ASSOCIATE MOVEMENTS WITH DANCE ABILITY. 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.

BREEZY WITH MORE CLOUDS

It is a cool morning across Southwest Florida, but warmer weather is on the way today. Winds will come from the east, turning east-southeasterly at 10-15 mph with gusts near 20 mph. While it won't be as windy as yesterday, it will still be rather breezy. With more of that east to southeasterly turn on the winds, we will warm up today. Afternoon highs are headed to near 80 degrees. With more humidity coming into play we can't rule out a very spotty shower popping up this afternoon. Overnight, we'll see plenty of clouds and we won't be as cool. Expect low temperatures Friday morning to bottom out in the mid 60s with lower 60s inland.

For tomorrow, we'll have cloudy skies and even a few showers showing up by evening.

A cold front pressing its way into Southwest Florida will give scattered showers for Saturday into Sunday. Some of the latest computer guidance suggests that the rain may taper off by Sunday afternoon.so it's possible that the end of the weekend might turn out to be rain-free.

"Keep up!"

BUT THE REAL SPEED, COMES FROM HER FEET.

"This is what I do every day."

EVERY DAY SHE WALKS THREE TO FOUR HOURS.

RACKING UP 4 MILES ON THE BACK ROADS.

"Side street. This is my side street."

DID WE MENTION SARAH'S AGE?

"100 years and 5 months, I guess it is."

EVEN AT 100, SHE STILL HAS A NEED FOR SPEED.

"I enjoy very much doing it and I know it's for my own benefit."

EVERY DAY, GIVING HER BODY A TUNE UP.

"When we get up and we move it's really like taking your car out for a drive. Everything really gets lubricated, your engine warms up, all that blood and circulation--everything moves around, everything gets oxygenated."

LINDA LARSON HEADS MINUTES IN MOTION. A GUNDERSEN HEALTH SYSTEM SIX-WEEK CHALLENGE TO GET THE COMMUNITY OUT AND MOVING EACH DAY.

"And we really are at our best when we're moving. And it doesn't have to be hard and it doesn't have to be fast."

"That's quite a good pace."

THIS YEAR SARAH'S PARTICIPATING.

"Then I go down here."

HER VIEW, NOT MUCH THIS TIME OF THE AFTERNOON.

"Everybody sleeps about this time of day. *Laughs* They're great nappers. *Laughs."

BUT AS SHE PUTS IN THE MILES, THIS 100-YEAR-OLD KNOWS SHE'S STAYING HEALTHY.

"Oh for heaven sakes, yes." Return to index of stories...
