DODGING BAGGAGE FEES-PKG


NEW FEDERAL DATA SHOWS.AIRLINES TOOK IN MORE THAN 3-POINT-3 BILLION DOLLARS IN BAGGAGE FEES LAST YEAR.SO, DON'T EXPECT THEY'RE GOING AWAY ANYTIME SOON.

CONSUMER REPORTS, THOUGH, HAS COME UP WITH A FEW WAYS TO DODGE BAGGAGE AND OTHER FEES. STARTING WITH YOUR CHOICE OF AIRLINES.

"Southwest doesn't charge for your first 2 checked bags, Jet Blue doesn't charge for your first checked bag and on some routes depending on where you're traveling, Air Canada doesn't charge for your first checked bag"

SENIOR EDITOR MANDY WALKER SAYS USING AN AIRLINE'S CREDIT CARD CAN HELP, TOO.

"Delta, United, American they all have them and Delta, they'll waive the first bag in many cases and you might get other perks, too."

SHE ALSO SAYS WEBSITES LIKE AIRFAREWATCHDOG-DOT-COM HAVE CHARTS. WHERE YOU CAN COMPARE THE PRICE OF ALL FEES THE BIG AIRLINES ARE CHARGING.

CNBC'S KELLI GRANT, MEANWHILE, TOLD TODAY ABOUT ANOTHER MONEY SAVING STRATEGY WHEN ACTUALLY BUYING AIRLINES TICKET.

"If you're searching for airfares for a family of four, you don't want to search for four people, you want to start your search for just a single seat"

EVEN THOUGH WE MAY THINK THE MORE PEOPLE FLYING WITH US.THE LOWER THE RATE. SHE SAYS THAT'S NOT THE CASE.

"it's because all the airline booking sites use this quirk where they're only going to turn up the cheapest fare for your entire party"

MEANING EACH TICKET IN A PARTY OF FOUR CAN BE 150-DOLLARS.BUT ONLY $100 IF BOOKED 2 AND 2.

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.

HOT AND HUMID TODAY, HIGHER RAIN CHANCES THROUGH THE WEEK

It is a warm start to our Monday morning with temperatures in the lower 70s to get things going. We'll get to see a bit more sunshine this morning than yesterday morning. Through the afternoon, expect plenty of humidity and a few clouds building. It is going to be another hot day with afternoon high temperatures reaching into the lower 90s with the beaches just a little bit cooler in the mid to upper 80s. There is a chance for a very stray shower this afternoon, but coverage would only be around 20%.

Through the week, we'll stay hot and humid and the rain chances will be going up. Tropical moisture will be arriving from the southeast. That moisture will lead to a few isolated showers and storms tomorrow afternoon. Better rain chances move in for Wednesday and Thursday with scattered showers and storms both days. On Wednesday, it looks like the better rain chance will come during the afternoon time frame and be aimed toward the urban corridor. Then on Thursday, we'll start with some onshore breezes that will help to give a chance for showers washing ashore during the morning. Then the afternoon downpours will be aimed deeper inland. Even with more cloud cover and the rain in the picture, we'll still warm into the upper 80s through the end of the week.

Right now, forecast models point to drier weather returning for your weekend plans, with more sunshine and highs in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. Return to index of stories...

BULLIES-PKG


"we're becoming more aware of it, not that it's happening more frequently"

"i think kids are becoming desensitized to the word bullying but they know if they use it, the adults will jump in and maybe be their defender."

A CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST AND A SCHOOL COUNSELOR.

TWO PROFESSIONS THAT DEAL WITH VICTIMS OF BULLYING IN DIFFERENT WAYS.

BUT THEY BOTH AGREE.

WHAT WE THINK IS BULLYING - MAY JUST BE A DISAGREEMENT THAT KIDS NEED TO WORK OUT THEMSELVES.

"me calling you a name and you calling me a name back, we aren't mutually bullying one another. we're in a disagreement."

VALERIE TUCKER IS A SCHOOL COUNSELOR.

SHE SAYS THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BULLYING AND CONFLICT - IS BULLYING VICTIMS DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT.

"A victim of bullying usually feels they are powerless to do anything about. telling somebody about increases the embarrassment they feel over not being able to defend themselves."

DR. SAM MARENO - A PSYCHOLOGIST AGREES.

"it probably comes and goes. when children are younger, they have conflict and they are friends the next day. when they are in middle school, that conflict may persist and you want to see, are things getting better with that person or are they still that way."

SO HOW CAN YOU - AS A PARENT TELL A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JUST A SPAT OR IS YOUR KID BEING BULLIED?

THE BIGGEST THING - PROFESSIONALS SAY - IS TO ASK QUESTIONS.

"do they appear to be depressed, do they appear to be anxious? are they reluctant to engage in social activity? are their grades at school reducing? are they not performing at they used to?"

"if your child is more than angry of frustrated, if their hurt or withdrawn, if they don't want to go to school to avoid a person, absolutely step in" Return to index of stories...

IT'S THE FIRST LOOK INSIDE HILLARY CLINTON'S HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED MEMOIR.

A REVEALING TRIBUTE TO HER MOTHER -- DOROTHY RODHAM IN AN AUDIO EXCERPT RELEASED ON VOGUE'S WEB SITE FOR MOTHER'S DAY.

"No one had a bigger influence on my life or did more to shape the person I became."

CLINTON SAYS HER MOTHER STRESSED SOCIAL JUSTICE AS SHE RAISED THE FUTURE FIRST LADY AND SECRETARY OF STATE.

SHE DESCRIBES HER MOTHER'S HARDSCRABBLE CHILDHOOD -- SENT TO LIVE WITH "SEVERE" GRANDPARENTS WHO LOCKED HER IN HER ROOM FOR A YEAR AS PUNISHMENT FOR TRICK-OR-TREATING.

LEAVING AT 14. STRIKING OUT ON HER OWN..

CLINTON ASKED HER -- HOW SHE SURVIVED.

"I'll never forget how she replied, 'At critical points in my life somebody showed me kindness,' she said."

BY CONTRAST-- CLINTON SAYS HER MOTHER ALWAYS GAVE HER UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND SUPPORT-- INCLUDING AFTER SHE LOST HER CAMPAIGN FOR PRESIDENT.

"Having her so close became a source of great comfort to me, especially in the difficult period after the end of the 2008 campaign. I'd come home from a long day at the Senate or the State Department, slide in next to her at the small table in our breakfast nook, and let everything just pour out."

AND WHEN HER MOTHER DIED IN 2011, CLINTON SAID SHE LONGED FOR ONE MORE CONVERSATION, ONE MORE HUG.

BUT SHE ALSO SAYS SHE FELT NEWLY-MOVED TO TAKE THE ADVICE SHE'S SURE HER MOTHER WOULD GIVE.

"Never rest on your laurels. Never quit. Never stop working to make the world a better place. That's our unfinished business."

WHEN GAS PRICES ARE SKYROCKETING. THE LAST PLACE MANY DRIVERS WANT TO GO, IS THE GAS STATION.

"yeah, it was definitely hitting e today."

"I wish i could fill my tank up every time but i just don't have the money for it."

"when the red light comes on you know you better pull over and get gas."

AND APPARENTLY MORE PEOPLE ARE RUNNING ON EMPTY. ACCORDING TO THE AUTO CLUB OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.

"month over month we've had about a 15 percent increase in fuel related calls, just from march to april."

THAT MEANS AS GAS PRICES SHOOT UP. SO DO THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE STUCK ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. WITH AN EMPTY FUEL TANK. FOR THE AUTO CLUB, THAT'S A TOTAL OF 180-THOUSAND CALLS EVERY YEAR.

"I think the fuel prices are causing the members to be a little bit more hesitant in actually going out and spending the money."

"even people who say they're not running out of gas admit they are running out of money."

"i tend not to go full tank, just three quarters."

"i try to push the limits as much as i can."

GAS STATION OWNERS SAY THEIR CUSTOMERS ARE SPENDING LESS BUT COMING IN MORE OFTEN, TEMPTING FATE.

"I mean it costs 100 dollars or more for some of these cars to fill up and people just don't have that."

BUT RUNNING ON AN EMPTY GAS TANK CAN BE EVEN MORE EXPENSIVE. CAUSING POTENTIAL DAMAGE TO YOUR CAR'S FUEL PUMP AND ENGINE. STILL AS PRICES CONTINUE TO RISE. DRIVERS WILL TAKE THAT CHANCE TO SQUEEZE EVERY DROP INTO A FEW MORE MILES. 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.

HOT AND HUMID TODAY, HIGHER RAIN CHANCES THROUGH THE WEEK

It is a warm start to our Monday morning with temperatures in the lower 70s to get things going. We'll get to see a bit more sunshine this morning than yesterday morning. Through the afternoon, expect plenty of humidity and a few clouds building. It is going to be another hot day with afternoon high temperatures reaching into the lower 90s with the beaches just a little bit cooler in the mid to upper 80s. There is a chance for a very stray shower this afternoon, but coverage would only be around 20%.

Through the week, we'll stay hot and humid and the rain chances will be going up. Tropical moisture will be arriving from the southeast. That moisture will lead to a few isolated showers and storms tomorrow afternoon. Better rain chances move in for Wednesday and Thursday with scattered showers and storms both days. On Wednesday, it looks like the better rain chance will come during the afternoon time frame and be aimed toward the urban corridor. Then on Thursday, we'll start with some onshore breezes that will help to give a chance for showers washing ashore during the morning. Then the afternoon downpours will be aimed deeper inland. Even with more cloud cover and the rain in the picture, we'll still warm into the upper 80s through the end of the week.

Right now, forecast models point to drier weather returning for your weekend plans, with more sunshine and highs in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. Return to index of stories...
