FORECAST-WXWALL


Rain chances this evening

Showers and thunderstorms have been developing across areas east of Interstate 75 on Monday afternoon. Through this evening, the potential for a few showers or isolated thunderstorms to drift back toward the coastal communities of Southwest Florida will exist. However the overall coverage of rain along the US 41 corridor is expected to remain isolated.

Once again on Tuesday the chance for sea breeze induced showers and thunderstorms will exist, but again the risk will be greatest for areas east of the interstate. Temperatures look to top out in the low 90s, near 92 degrees at Fort Myers by mid-afternoon on Tuesday.

The overall pattern for the rest of the week will feature rain chances, but again the areas experiencing the most widespread coverage should remain for the inland regions of Collier, Lee and Charlotte Counties. That risk then would be more widespread across locations in Hendry, Glades and DeSoto Counties.

Afternoon temperatures this week look to rise into the low 90s most afternoon with lows in the low to mid 70s early of the next several nights. Return to index of stories...

NOT THAT LONG AGO, BRIDES-TO-BE WERE ALL ABOUT SMARTPHONE-SHARING WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

.THOSE PRECIOUS MOMENTS LEADING UP TO. AND INCLUDING. THE BIG DAY.

BUT SOCIAL MEDIA BEING WHAT IT NOW IS. THE SHARING HAS GOTTEN OUT OF HAND. ACCORDING TO A SURVEY BY DAVID'S BRIDAL.

"62 percent said hey, I don't want my gown posted, presented, shared, before i get to the day. that's intended to be a surprise for my groom and also i want that to be a surprise to my guests in many ways"

BRIAN BEITLER A V-P AT DAVID'S. SAYS THE SURVEY FOUND A MAJOR CONCERN FOR COUPLES.

.IS THAT WITH ONE CLICK, A WEDDING CAN GO FROM INTIMATE EVENT.TO TRENDING ONLINE.

"A majority of brides are saying Hey, for my first dance, for our first pic that we're going to share socially, let us do that."

HE SAYS IT'S BECOME SUCH AN ISSUE, THAT SOME BRIDES ARE ACTUALLY INTO CONFISCATION.

"We asked the question, are you leaving cameras or taking cameras away from your guests as they come and really today only 14 percent of brides said yes thats something i'm going to do or want to do, is to truly kind of constrain all of my guests from sharing socially"

SO, HAPPY COUPLES ARE BEING ENCOURAGED TO SET GROUND RULES FOR THE CEREMONY.SO TO POST OR NOT TO POST.AREN'T AMONG THE QUESTIONS BEING ASKED THAT DAY.

HEALTH MATTERS-ONCAM


A FEW MONTHS AGO, FEW PEOPLE HAD HEARD OF MERS-

A DANGEROUS VIRUS THAT ORIGINATED FROM THE MIDDLE EAST.

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

AND HEALTHCARE EXPERTS ARE STAYING ON TOP OF ANY DEVELOPMENTS.

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


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


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...

DREAM HOME-SS


IF YOU'RE LOOKING TO BUY A HOUSE RIGHT NOW - YOU MAY NOT REALIZE IT, BUT ONE COMMENT OR PAPERWORK MISSTEP COULD COMPROMISE YOUR NEGOTIATING POSITION.

THIS AFTERNOON, NBC2 HAS FOUR MESSAGES AND MINDSETS BUYERS SHOULD AVOID BROADCASTING.

THE FIRST - "I'M NOT PRE-APPROVED" -

THIS PUTS YOU AT A DISADVANTAGE - AGENTS AND SELLERS PREFER STRONG BUYING CANDIDATES, TO MAKE GOOD ON THEIR OFFER.

IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO GET PRE-APPROVED.

SOMETHING ELSE TO KEEP TO YOURSELF - YOUR EXACT PRE-APPROVAL AMOUNT.

IF SELLERS KNOW THAT - THEY MAY PUSH YOU TO BID HIGHER.

AND AVOID SAYING - "I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT THIS HOME" - FIXATING ON ONE HURTS YOUR CHANCES, WHEN NEGOTIATING.

AND FINALLY DON'T SAY, "THIS IS MY FOREVER HOME."

FORECAST-WXWALL


TRain chances this evening

Showers and thunderstorms have been developing across areas east of Interstate 75 on Monday afternoon. Through this evening, the potential for a few showers or isolated thunderstorms to drift back toward the coastal communities of Southwest Florida will exist. However the overall coverage of rain along the US 41 corridor is expected to remain isolated.

Once again on Tuesday the chance for sea breeze induced showers and thunderstorms will exist, but again the risk will be greatest for areas east of the interstate. Temperatures look to top out in the low 90s, near 92 degrees at Fort Myers by mid-afternoon on Tuesday.

The overall pattern for the rest of the week will feature rain chances, but again the areas experiencing the most widespread coverage should remain for the inland regions of Collier, Lee and Charlotte Counties. That risk then would be more widespread across locations in Hendry, Glades and DeSoto Counties.

Afternoon temperatures this week look to rise into the low 90s most afternoon with lows in the low to mid 70s early of the next several nights. Return to index of stories...

LITTLE LEAGUE ARMS-TC MON VIDBOX


LITTLE LEAGUE BASEBALL STARTED 75 YEARS AGO.

BUT A LOT HAS CHANGED SINCE THEN, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO THE COMMITMENT YOUNG PLAYERS HAVE TO MAKE.

MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS AND COACHES SAY OVERUSE COULD BE HURTING YOUNG AND DEVELOPING ARMS.

TAYLOR UMLAND REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


LITTLE LEAGUE ARMS-PKG


"It seems like the one conclusion is it always comes from fatigue which leads to poor mechanics."

TEACHING THE YOUNGEST PITCHERS TO THROW.

THAT'S HAS BEEN BARRY BILKEY'S JOB FOR THE LAST 30 YEARS.

HE SAYS HE HAS SEEN ARM INJURIES NEARLY HIS WHOLE COACHING CAREER.

IT ALL COMES DOWN TO KIDS NOT LEARNING TO THROW CORRECTLY.

AND THAT LEADS TO INJURIES.

"It's not something that your normally do. I've heard people say that if you are going to be a pitcher, there is going to be soreness."

BUT HE DOESN'T BELIEVE THAT HAS TO BE TRUE.

AND MANY LITTLE LEAGUE PARENTS HOPE IT ISN'T EITHER.

"For my own child, he tries to push through and fight through and keep going. There is some positiveness in that. On the same token you have to be very cautious."

"I think sometimes that early on, the kids that pitch really well tend to pitch as much as the coaches are allowed to pitch them. And that does worry me because I think by the time they are old enough to matter that they can pitch really well, their shoulder might be messed enough that they can't."

PHYSICAL THERAPIST CARL STRATMAN ARE TRYING TO HELP YOUNG PITCHERS WHOSE ARMS HAVE BEEN INJURED FROM OVERUSE.

"I think the biggest problem with developing arms is the number of throws they are doing at the early stages of their career. Not just number of throws but throwing consistently throughout the year."

STRATMAN SEES KIDS AS YOUNG AS EIGHT YEARS OLD.

HE SAYS THE NUMBER ONE THING HE RECOMMENDS IS COMPLETELY SHUTTING DOWN THROWING AFTER THE SEASON IS OVER.

FOR AT LEAST THREE MONTHS.

THAT WILL HELP YOUNG MUSCLES REBOUND AND HEAL FROM THE UNNATURAL MOTION OF THROWING A BASEBALL. Return to index of stories...
