5:12 FORECAST ON THE 2'S-WX WALL


Full Forecast

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.

SCATTERED DOWNPOURS START AROUND MIDDAY

Scattered storms are in the forecast today. We start the morning mainly clear and dry, but it won't take long to get the rain going today. Winds from the south will quickly turn southwesterly. That turn of the winds will happen early in the day, allowing a few downpours to pop up starting in the later morning to midday time frame. A few of these will be near our urban corridor, but once they pop up, they are headed toward the inland areas. Most of the activity will remain inland, but there will be a few downpours that come back toward the coastline in the evening as the sea breeze collapses. With plenty of moisture in place, there is the possibility of isolated rain totals reaching 2-3"; similar to what happened yesterday in eastern Lee County. Afternoon highs will again reach into the lower 90s.

We'll continue with scattered afternoon storms in the forecast through the week, most of which will be in the inland areas. Afternoon highs will stay in the near 90 degrees and lows will be in the low to mid 70s.

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

IT'S HAIR RAISING. WHILE THE CHILD'S FACE IS BLURRED.THE BOY BEING HIT BY AN ADULT THREE TIMES HIS SIZE IS TEN YEAR-OLD JEFFERY LAMB.

"He's a big man, he's not some 98 pound weakling and he's 57 years old shame on him."

WE WERE THERE WHEN JEFFERY'S MOTHER LORI WATCHED THE VIDEO IN HORROR. HER SON HIT ONCE.THEN THREATENED WITH A FIST. THE SAME BUS ASSISTANT.CAME BACK TO HIM 15 MINUTES LATER, AND DELIVERING ANOTHER BLOW. AUTISTIC JEFFERY WASN'T ABLE TO COMMUNICATE ALL THAT HAPPENED TO HIS MOTHER.

"This is disgusting, it's disgusting."

PASCO COUNTY INVESTIGATORS TELL US THE MAN IN THE VIDEO IS JAMES LAMBERT OF HUDSON.NOW CHARGED WITH CHILD ABUSE. AN EMPLOYEE WHO'S WORKED ON BUSES WITH CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES LIKE JEFFERY. SINCE 1998.

"You're telling me there is nothing else on his record, this all of the sudden just happened. this is the first, he didn't slap the child once, it was multiple times, i saw it i know."

BEFORE THIS INCIDENT.LORI LAMB TOLD ME SHE'S FILED A COMPLAINT ABOUT LAMBERT'S BEHAVIOR TOWARDS HER SON ON TWO OTHER INSTANCES.

"If they say that they told transportation, we need to find out what was done."

"Pasco county is now going to go back and look for any video for that bus assistant on one of their buses. The problem is there video isn't stored that long and they don't look at it unless there is a reported issue."

"Maybe there is somebody who needs to review these tapes especially when we have a bus full of children who are not the best communicators. Let me make it clear that this is an isolated incident."

FOR LORI LAMB.SHE'S NOT CONVINCED THIS WAS THE ONLY RIDE OF HORROR FOR HER SON.

"My trust is gone and I don't have any faith in the school."

BUT AS THE SEASON FOR SUMMER ROAD TRIPS BEGIN.

BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR BIG MYTHS THAT ARE A WASTE OF YOUR TIME AND MONEY.

ONE. IS THE SMALLER THE CAR THE BETTER?

EXPERTS SAY YOU DON'T HAVE TO DRIVE A TINY CAR TO GET GOOD FUEL ECONOMY.

HALF OF THE MOST FUEL EFFICIENT VEHICLES ARE MIDSIZE OR LARGE CARS,

ANOTHER MYTH, THAT EXPENSIVE PREMIMUM GAS HELPS YOU GET BETTER MILEAGE.

THOSE WHO DON'T DRIVE CARS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR PREMIUM GAS WON'T SEE A BENEFIT.

Today's Weather Story

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.

SCATTERED DOWNPOURS START AROUND MIDDAY

Scattered storms are in the forecast today. We start the morning mainly clear and dry, but it won't take long to get the rain going today. Winds from the south will quickly turn southwesterly. That turn of the winds will happen early in the day, allowing a few downpours to pop up starting in the later morning to midday time frame. A few of these will be near our urban corridor, but once they pop up, they are headed toward the inland areas. Most of the activity will remain inland, but there will be a few downpours that come back toward the coastline in the evening as the sea breeze collapses. With plenty of moisture in place, there is the possibility of isolated rain totals reaching 2-3"; similar to what happened yesterday in eastern Lee County. Afternoon highs will again reach into the lower 90s.

We'll continue with scattered afternoon storms in the forecast through the week, most of which will be in the inland areas. Afternoon highs will stay in the near 90 degrees and lows will be in the low to mid 70s.

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

OIL PULLING??-PKG


PKG --

PEOPLE WHO DO IT--- SWEAR BY IT.

"I sleep better at night. It's helped whiten my teeth."

FRESHER BREATH. CLEARER SKIN.

"Every day." "Yup."

CANDACE EBBINGHAUS. IS TALKING ABOUT OIL PULLING. SOMETHING SHE'S BEEN DOING WITH COCONUT OIL FOR 15 MINUTES A DAY. FOR A MONTH.

"I've had some good benefits from it."

"It's pretty simple. You take your oil. You scoop out a tablespoon, and start swishing."

THERE IS A LITERAL HARD PART. UNLESS YOU MELT THE COCONUT OIL AHEAD OF TIME, IT'S A SOLID AT ROOM TEMPERATURE.

"It's kind of gross but you just chew it and then it melts."

THEN YOU SWISH IT AROUND FOR 15 TO 20 MINUTES. AND SPIT IT OUT.

"It's supposed to pull the toxins out of your body."

COULD THE ANSWER TO BETTER DENTAL HEALTH REALLY LIE IN AISLE FOUR OF THE SUPERMARKET?

"I've been getting a lot of questions about this."

OIL PULLING IS A RELATIVELY NEW HOT TOPIC, BUT IT DATES BACK TO ANCIENT INDIAN CULTURE.

THE THEORY BEING--- THE OIL -- COCONUT, SUNFLOWER, SESAME--- AS YOU SWISH IT AROUND ---- GETS BACTERIA TO CLING TO IT.

WHEN YOU SPIT OUT THE OIL, YOU GET RID OF THE TOXINS AND WHITEN YOUR TEETH. WE ASKED DENTIST CHRISTINE TENAGLIA.

"There's no proof that says that it's gonna work. It's just by testimonial."

"Some people say, oh it works great. Well, I don't know. But the jury's still out and I would say give it a try. The oil pulling is certainly not going to hurt you."

FOR EBBINGHAUS, THE PROOF IS IN THE PULLING.

"The weekend that I started it, I did it on a Saturday morning and I did it on a Sunday - the next day - and I forgot to do it Monday. I just Tuesday, I was like, gosh, I didn't sleep as well last night. It was just really weird. So I did it again and I slept better." Return to index of stories...

LAUREN EVANS REPORTING.

OIL PULLING IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR REGULAR BRUSHING, FLOSSING, AND DENTAL CHECK-UPS.
