FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


!!!!NEED WX ANCHOR CG!!!!!

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.

RAINY SEASON HAS RETURNED

Our typical June set up gives us warm, muggy nights and some sunshine in the mornings, followed by scattered afternoon storms. We'll have that typical pattern in place today. Temperatures start in the mid 70s with a few clouds and will warm into the lower 90s this afternoon. Winds will be calm through the morning, then the afternoon sea breeze will arrive. The sea breeze will take today's best storm coverage toward the inland areas for the afternoon. As the sea breeze collapses this evening, a few of those storms will come back toward the coastline.

A similar pattern will be in place each day this week. The coverage of storms will likely be a bit higher through the middle of the week. Highs will stay in the lower 90s and lows in the low to mid 70s.

There are no areas of concern in the tropics at this time. Return to index of stories...

THE CALIFORNIA FACTORY WORKER BLASTED OTHER OWNERS OF HORSES WHO DID NOT RUN IN THE FIRST TWO LEGS OF THE TRIPLE CROWN, THE KENTUCKY DERBY AND PREAKNESS, LEAVING THEM RESTED FOR THE BELMONT TO TAKE DOWN CALIFORNIA CHROME.

"This is a cowards way out in my opinion.

This is a cowards way out."

CRITICS HAVE CALLED COBURN'S COMMENTS SOUR GRAPES.

HE DIDN'T BACK DOWN SUNDAY MORNING.

"These people, they nominate their horses for the Triple Crown.

This means three and they hold out for two and they come back and run one.

That would be like me at 6-2 playing basketball with a kid in a wheelchair."

BUT THE TRIPLE CROWN HAS BEEN WON ONLY ELEVEN TIMES AND THAT TEST OF ENDURANCE, WINNING THREE RACES OF DIFFERENT DISTANCES IN JUST FIVE WEEKS, IS WHY IT'S HORSE RACING'S GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT.

COBURN'S 77-YEAR OLD-TRAINER WAS MORE GENEROUS IN DEFEAT.

"Horses are not cowards and people aren't cowards.

I think it was a little out of text myself, but, hey, he was at the heat of the moment and don't forget he is a fairly new owner.

Sometimes your emotions get in front of you."

COBURN WENT TO THE BARN TO CHECK ON CALIFORNIA CHROME WHO HAS AN AILING HOOF.

THE OWNER STILL SOUNDED IN PAIN.

"And if there's ever a chance that we have another horse that has earned his way to the Kentucky Derby, we'll run in Kentucky and then the hell with the rest of them."

CALIFORNIA CHROME IS OFF TO CALIFORNIA.

HIS OWNER WILL FOLLOW, BUT NOT SINGING 'NEW YORK NEW YORK' ON TAKEOFF. Return to index of stories...

Well, we'll see what they decide to do, how they conduct themselves, whether or not this is, you know, one more travesty about the loss of four Americans or whether this is in the best tradition of the Congress, an effort to try to figure out what we can do better.

AMERICAN DREAM SLIPPING AWAY-ON CAM


A NEW POLL SHOWS MANY PEOPLE LIVING IN THE U.S. DON'T THINK THEY'LL EVER ACHIEVE "THE AMERICAN DREAM"

CNN'S ALEXANDRA FIELD REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


AMERICAN DREAM SLIPPING AWAY-PKG


FROM LOS ANGELES…

my name is ann marie chapman and I am 20 years old. Im a full time mom and part time student

TO PHOENIX…

my name is kave valeri, I am 13 years old im in 8th grade.

TO ATLANTA.

my name is andy shelly im 50 years old and work for the united parcel service.

WHEREVER YOU LIVE, WHOEVER YOU ARE. IT'S WHAT'S MEANT TO DEFINE US. HOWEVER WE DEFINE IT. THE. AMERICAN DREAM.

The american dream? It means that we go towards a better life and will be able to achieve more than other countries.

I guess the American dream is if theres something that you really want youre able to go get it

I've successfully raised a family, no debt, so yea um I've reached the American dream. Am I rich? No. but I have peace of mind.

PEACE OF MIND THAT MORE AMERICANS TODAY CAN'T SEEM TO FIND:

Guns and violence

job security, crime, becoming a statistic

SOME REASONS A GROWING NUMBER SAY THE DREAM IS SLIPPING AWAY.

A 'CNNMONEY AMERICAN DREAM POLL' finds ABOUT 6 OUT OF 10 AMERICANS BELIEVE IT'S OUT OF REACH.

THE NUMBERS ARE MORE ALARMING AMONG MILLENNIALS. THEY WERE BADLY BATTERED BY THE ECONOMIC DOWNTURN. more than HALF SAY THE DREAM CAN'T BE ATTAINED

AND IF THE NEXT GENERATION WAS MEANT TO BE BETTER THAN THE LAST, 63% OF PEOPLE SURVEYED DON'T BUY IT. THEY NOW BELIEVE CHILDREN WILL BE WORSE OFF THAN THEIR PARENTS.

It's not something people can always achieve, It's not something most people can achieve, I don't think in their lives. It's too hard, it's crazy

I most definitely am afraid for this next generation bc money is already tight with the government at my age, for me. The population is already growing you know?

UNCERTAINTY FUELING FEAR THAT THE DREAM MIGHT NOT BE REALITY.

for right now I believe that I could be able to achieve better than my parents but then for the time being we don't-we don't know.

In the future with the circumstances that we are in currently, it doesn't even look like it's something remotely achievable for most. Return to index of stories...

WEATHER-WX WALL


!!!NEED WX ANCHOR CG!!!

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.

RAINY SEASON HAS RETURNED

Our typical June set up gives us warm, muggy nights and some sunshine in the mornings, followed by scattered afternoon storms. We'll have that typical pattern in place today. Temperatures start in the mid 70s with a few clouds and will warm into the lower 90s this afternoon. Winds will be calm through the morning, then the afternoon sea breeze will arrive. The sea breeze will take today's best storm coverage toward the inland areas for the afternoon. As the sea breeze collapses this evening, a few of those storms will come back toward the coastline.

A similar pattern will be in place each day this week. The coverage of storms will likely be a bit higher through the middle of the week. Highs will stay in the lower 90s and lows in the low to mid 70s.

There are no areas of concern in the tropics at this time. Return to index of stories...

AMY SCHAVOLT SAYS SHE SAW INSTANT RESULTS.

"i had a couple of people say wow your eyelashes look really nice and i was all excited"

BUT, IN A BLINK OF AN EYE THOSE RESULTS WERE OVERSHADOWED BY A CLUMPY GOOEY MESS THAT WAS HARD TO GET OFF EVEN WITH MAKEUP REMOVER.

"I was wiping downwards with the cotton ball and noticed a chunk of my eyelashes fell into the palm of my hand.

COVER GIRL SAYS AMY'S EYELASH MISHAP IS NOT TYPICAL

"I think it looks awful."

AND THEY HAVEN'T HAD OTHER COMPLAINTS.

BUT, OTHER WOMAN ARE SOUNDING OFF ON THEIR WEBSITE.

ADDING THEIR EYELASH HORROR STORY TO THE REVIEWS.

REPORTER: "what are you worried about most?"

"how long it's going to take for my lashes to grow back"

DR ALAN BAUMAN REPAIRS DAMAGED EYELASHES.

"the eyelashes look traumatized"

AND SAYS AMY MAY HAVE TO CONCEAL THE LOST LASHES LONGER THAN SHE WANTS.

"eyelashes can take some time to rebound it can take like two to four months"

OVER TIME -- PROBLEMS LIKE AMY'S CAN LEAD TO PERMANENT DAMAGE.

SO, BAUMAN SAYS CONSUMERS SHOULD CHOOSE PRODUCTS CAREFULLY.

"there's a pushing of the envelope so to speak"

AS MORE COSMETIC COMPANIES ARE TRYING TO DELIVER RUNWAY WORTHY LOOKS IN A SECOND.

"with each of the cosmetic enhancements there comes some risk the consumer has to be careful what they choose it can be buyer beware"

A LESSON AMY REFLECTS ON.

A FEW MONTHS AGO NOT MANY PEOPLE PEOPLE HAD HEARD OF MERS- A DANGEROUS VIRUS THAT SPRANG FROM THE MIDDLE EAST.

NOW IT'S BEEN CONFIRMED IN THE U-S, INCLUDING CENTRAL FLORIDA.

HEALTHCARE EXPERS ARE STAYING ON TOP OF ANY DEVELOPMENTS.

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


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


NOW THAT MERS HAS BEEN CONFIRMED IN FLORIDA- HEALTHCARE WORKERS ARE PAYING CLOSE ATTENTION.

JOANNE ANDREWS/RN INFECTIOUS DISEASE

RUNS:

8:41 A lot of the respiratory viruses, they all look and sound roughly the same with some little changes. But I think what's going to highlight this for us is that these are almost entirely healthcare workers that have worked in areas where the MERS been found.

MERS stands for Middle East respiratory syndrome…FIRST FOUND IN THE ARABIAN PENINSULA IN 2012, IT is a coronavirus, BELONGING TO the same group of viruses as the common cold. MERS attacks the respiratory system AND can lead to pneumonia or kidney failure.

JOANNE ANDREWS/RN INFECTIOUS DISEASE

RUNS:

9:58 This is a serious virus. It, it has our attention. Approximately 25-35% of patients do not survive.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

While risk to the general public is very low- a quick diagnosis increases the chance of overcoming the illness. Because it has hit American soil- the CDC is briefing hospitals and healthcare organizations.

JOANNE ANDREWS/RN INFECTIOUS DISEASE

RUNS:

7:51 Guidance came out from the CDC what healthcare facilities should take into consideration. That information was passed on to the ER directors as well so that they know when we have patients coming in through the doors and they have those flu-like symptoms probably the second question that you should ask is have you traveled lately? And where from?

MERS is spread through close human contact, including sneezing and coughing. SO THE SAME RULES APPLY IN PREVENTING THE PASSING OF EVERYDAY GERMS.

JOANNE ANDREWS/RN INFECTIOUS DISEASE

RUNS:

6:59 We always go to the CDC for guidance and they did a study long ago that said that the alcohol gels are every bit as effective as the soap and water.

WHILE THERE'S NO REASON TO PANIC- IT'S ALWAYS REASONABLE TO PLAY IT SAFE WITH PROPER HYGIENE. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM, I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...
