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.

"Extended stretch of dry weather"

It was a beautiful start to the week with blues skies and low humidity. Afternoon temperatures made it to 90° in town, and it looks like the heat will continue to build over the next few days. Rain prospects begin to increase slightly for the upcoming weekend.

Bright and sunny skies will take us through the late morning hours and temperatures will be quick to rise by mid day. Through the afternoon expect an abundance of sunshine and highs in the lower 90s. Humidity values stay relatively comfortable by May standards, but if you want to beat the heat head to the area beaches. Coastal spots will run a few degrees cooler as the west coast seabreeze kicks in during the day.

Mostly clear skies will prevail through the evening and temperatures will stay mild in the middle 60s.

High pressure remains in control of our weather for Wednesday, so plan on mostly to partly sunny skies each and every afternoon. Winds will continue to veer to the southeast pushing more moisture into Southwest Florida. Since humidity levels will be going up, overnight lows will be much milder as they settle into upper 60s to lower 70s by late in the week. During the day, afternoon temperatures will climb into the lower half of the 90s with mainly dry weather. Rain prospects look to go up slightly between 20-30% by the weekend as a few isolated showers develop along the seabreeze. Return to index of stories...

THERE SEEM TO BE TWO GOALS IN THE FINANCIAL SCHEME OF LIFE.

THE FIRST IS TO FIND A GREAT JOB AND CAREER.

ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE - THE GOAL OF RETIRING FROM THAT GREAT JOB AND CAREER.

FINANCIAL ADVISOR JIM NOLTE IS HERE.

JIM - WHAT ARE SOME OF THE COMMON MISTAKES PEOPLE MAKE WHEN THEY ARE RETIRED, THAT CAN CAUSE THEM TO RUN OUT OF MONEY? Return to index of stories...


WELLS FARGO-PLAS-(5)CG


· This is a great topic. We spend so much time and energy in our business trying to help people financially prepare for retirement. We use financial planning reports, with detailed projections, great charts and detailed analysis on how much needs to be saved and invested to meet future retirement income goals.

· Many people successfully get to that financial point in their lives when they can afford to retire. Unfortunately, for many, that's when the actual planning stops. In my practice, we actively address that issue. Our goal is to help clients to and THROUGH retirement. There was a recent article in U.S. News that identified five common mistakes retirees make that can cause them to run out of money.

· The first mistake that can make your financial nest egg to disappear is that you don't have a measuring device that lets you know how your retirement plan is doing. Financially, retirement is a balancing act. We want to enjoy a high quality of life today, but we need to preserve enough money to take care of our needs tomorrow. The U.S. News report compared this issue to driving across the country without a fuel gauge. You wouldn't know when you needed to stop for gas. You have to have some type of monitoring system in place. This system should tell you how much money you have, how your investments are doing, how much you are spending each year and if the current investment/spending program needs adjustments. In our practice we use a financial planning tool called Envision. Each Envision program is individually set up and updated every quarter. It's our financial planning fuel gauge.

· The second most common mistake is not having a spending plan. When you're working, your budget is built around your paycheck. When you run a little short, most people use their credit cards. When the credit card balance gets too large, you are forced to "cut back" to pay down your debt. In retirement, you don't have a paycheck coming in. Instead you have investment income. And that means that you have to monitor and adjust your cash flow on a regular basis. It's really not that difficult, but it's different than expecting that paycheck each month. I think It's interesting to note that a leading cause for budget problems in retirement is having to financially help adult children. Once a parent, always a parent.

· The third common mistake is making the wrong investment decisions. Your investment goal in retirement should not be to maximize returns-it should be to preserve your principal and provide s sustainable lifelong income. There are multiple retirement investment philosophies to choose from. That's a discussion you should have with your financial advisor. The key is to find an approach that fits your personality and stick with it.

· The fourth common mistake is not to have a "Plan B". Life is full of surprises. If your plan requires that you literally use all of your assets, you will be at risk of running out of money. That's why a successful plan sets aside some cash as a reserve fund. Some investors put a portion of their investments in insured investments like annuities to provide a "Plan B".

· The fifth most common financial mistake in retirement is falling for a scam. There will always be people in the world who will offer you the greatest opportunity ever-when in reality, the scammers just want your money. How many times did our parents tell us that "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't.

· When you are younger, you have years to recover from a bad investment decision. That doesn't work when you are retired. So here's the challenge-you need to get to and through retirement. Another one of those great pieces of advice from our parents- people don't plan to fail, they just fail to plan. Getting to retirement takes planning and for many that means working with a trusted financial advisor. If you are lucky enough to be in retirement, you need that advisor even more.

HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


GETTING TO THE BOTTOM OF BACK PAIN CAN BE TIME-CONSUMING AND TROUBLESOME.

DR. DONNA LANTHIER/PHYSIATRIST

RUNS:

1:42 The first assessment is where's the pain coming from? Is it purely muscular, that physical therapy can help? Is it a disc problem? Is it a nerve problem? Quite often it's a combination of all three.

DR. DONNA LANTHIER IS A BONE, MUSCLE AND NERVE EXPERT WHO SERVES AS THE POINT OF CONTACT FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM'S NEW COMPREHENSIVE SPINE CENTER.

DR. DONNA LANTHIER/PHYSIATRIST

RUNS:

3:52 Our goal is to get people functional. Quite often we can't eliminate their pain, in some cases we can. But other times it's more of a management.

JOINING MULTIPLE SPECIALTIES INCLUDING PHYSICAL THERAPY, PAIN MANAGEMENT AND NEUROLOGY- THE TEAM-BASED APPROACH IS NOT DEPENDENT ON PRESCRIPTION MEDS.

DR. GENE MAHANEY/PAIN MANAGEMENT SPECIALIST

RUNS:

:50 We've been relying more on injections and other modalities such physical therapy, to bring people out of pain on a more consistent basis without relying on drugs.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

The Spine Center offers a one-stop shop. Patients can come here, get examined, diagnosed and walk away with a treatment plan. In one day, under one roof.

DR. DONNA LANTHIER/PHYSIATRIST

RUNS:

3:20 Myself, physical therapy, x-rays are available in this building, MRIs are available here. And then if needed, they can get the injections as well.

DR. GENE MAHANEY/PAIN MANAGEMENT SPECIALIST

RUNS:

1:40 Typically, what we'll do is localize the pain area, find an area of pain that seems to be the generator for that patient's specific pain and inject that with a combination of local anesthetics, steroids, other anti-inflammatories.

COMBINING THE TEAM APPROACH AND CONSERVATIVE TECHNIQUES IS A BIG STEP FORWARD IN LIBERATING PEOPLE FROM THEIR PAIN. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM, I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...

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.

"Extended stretch of dry weather"

It was a beautiful start to the week with blues skies and low humidity. Afternoon temperatures made it to 90° in town, and it looks like the heat will continue to build over the next few days. Rain prospects begin to increase slightly for the upcoming weekend.

Bright and sunny skies will take us through the late morning hours and temperatures will be quick to rise by mid day. Through the afternoon expect an abundance of sunshine and highs in the lower 90s. Humidity values stay relatively comfortable by May standards, but if you want to beat the heat head to the area beaches. Coastal spots will run a few degrees cooler as the west coast seabreeze kicks in during the day.

Mostly clear skies will prevail through the evening and temperatures will stay mild in the middle 60s.

High pressure remains in control of our weather for Wednesday, so plan on mostly to partly sunny skies each and every afternoon. Winds will continue to veer to the southeast pushing more moisture into Southwest Florida. Since humidity levels will be going up, overnight lows will be much milder as they settle into upper 60s to lower 70s by late in the week. During the day, afternoon temperatures will climb into the lower half of the 90s with mainly dry weather. Rain prospects look to go up slightly between 20-30% by the weekend as a few isolated showers develop along the seabreeze. Return to index of stories...

IPHONE RECOVERY-PKG


Like so many of us. 26 year old Sarah Maguire says her smartphone. is so much more than just a cell phone.

it had all my photos, all my texts messages, address/i probably write down information that i shouldn't write down in my phone.

after a night on the town with her roommate. Sarah says both of their iphones were stolen.

So she turned to her computer. to an APP called "Find my iphone". to hunt down the devices.

I think it's an amazing and it's crazy how specific the - just the. it was so specific.

SU: Once the APP is download. your phone becomes a beacon. it can be tracked nearly anywhere.

Using cell towers. the phone sends a ping. and that ping can be monitored in real time. right from your computer. The technology can pin point your phone all the way down to a specific address.

Sarah's phone was pinging 30 miles away.

in the quiet LA suburb of West Covina.

She says when police told her they were too busy to track down two phones.

THE SLENDER 26-YEAR-OLD YOGA TEACHER TOOK MATTERS INTO HER OWN HANDS

"knocking on the door was a little bit scary"

"there was a lot of grunting and me stuttering."

After a short confrontation.

SHE. says a large man eventually handed over both phones.

Do you think you made a good decision?

I think it was good. I think my dad would probably say differently.

So would police.

"we really don't want people going on their own, into a sketchy neighborhood or to a sketchy house or apartment and find a phone thats really worth only a couple hundred bucks."

With more than three million smart phones stolen last year alone.

Apps like "Find my iphone" are more popular then ever.

And that's exactly what worries police.

Commander: it's not worth anyone getting hurt over.

"do you think you're lucky?

I think I'm lucky, yeah."

LuckY? yes.

Smart? Even Sarah ADMITs that's A TOUGH CALL.

CLIMATE CHANGE REPORT-PKG


THIS YEAR'S RARE WINTER WILDFIRES ARE PROOF OUR CLIMATE HAS CHANGED

SO IS 2014'S RECORD SNOW

AND COLD.SAYS TODAY'S REPORT

THAT'S MEANT TO JOLT THE NATION.

"Really the loudest alarm bell to date signaling the need for urgent action."

250 SCIENTISTS DETAILED REGIONAL EFFECTS

LIKE THE SEA LEVEL RISE THAT MADE SANDY A SUPERSTORM.

AND PUTS EAST COAST CITIES ON TIDAL RIVERS. LIKE WASHINGTON AND PHILADELPHIA. IN MORE DANGER OF FLOODING

AS THE WEST FACES RECORD DROUGHT.

CLIMATE CHANGE CAN BE LESSENED BY TOUGHER TAILPIPE STANDARDS

AND LESS USE OF FOSSIL FUEL.

BUT UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND CLIMATOLOGIST, RAGHU MURTUGUDDE, SAYS THERE'S ANOTHER WAY

"The heating and cooling of the buildings contributes over 1 third of the greenhouse gas emissions."

MORE SOLAR. MORE EFFICIENT LIGHTING, HEAT AND A/C.

REQUIRE THEM! HE ARGUES.

"These things actually can make a tremendous contribution from building to reducing carbon emission 37

CONSERVATIVES SAY NEW REGULATION IS NOT WARRANTED.

"I think that the american public is not motivated by trying to mitigate climate change, but probably more motivated by the impact on their pocket book."

BUT GLOBAL WARMING IS ALREADY HITTING THE WALLET.
