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 weather continues across southwest Florida. For the rest of the week we will continue to track afternoon thunderstorms as well. Temperatures will stay in the mid 70's each morning and lower 90's each afternoon through the weekend. Steering winds are light across the area tonight and it looks like the same pattern will be in place tomorrow. That means that a few, isolated, showers are possible in the morning followed by strong thunderstorms, inland, during the late day and early evening. Some storms will probably reform and drift back toward the coast as we get closer to sunset.

Looking at the long-range forecast we will be tracking a typical mid-July weather pattern. Hot and humid weather each day and afternoon thunderstorms scattered across southwest Florida. No tropical weather systems are anticipated for the next 5 - 7 days in the Atlantic Basin. Return to index of stories...

IT TEACHES THE INMATES RESPONSIBILITY.

AND GIVING THEM LIFE LESSONS, THEY CAN USE OUT OF PRISON.

INMATE DOGS-BNR-PKG


NATS OF BRYANT PLAYING WITH DOG

12:17:40-12:17:47

It's a good feeling because we do negative things to get in here so it's a positive thing that makes you feel good inside.

BRYANT BIANCHIN DOESN'T KNOW *WHEN HE'LL LEAVE LEE COUNTY JAIL. FIVE MONTHS AGO HE WAS BUSTED WITH COCAINE -- NOW HE'S PART OF THE "SECOND CHANCE PROGRAM."

SOT-SCOTT DUNN DEPUTY

12:36:48-2:36:51

You could see his whole demeanor changed.

THE PROGRAM STARTED IN LEE COUNTY IN 2003. IT ALLOWS A HANDFUL OF NON VIOLENT INMATES THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRAIN DOGS IN HOPES OF FINDING THEM A GOOD HOME AND REHABILITATING INMATES.

12:18:32-2:18:54

I kind of look at the dogs like I look at myself. Because they have behavioral problems like us and it's interesting to see how we can try to correct them and they can be corrected and hopefully we can be corrected too.

FOR 10 WEEKS, THE DOGS *NEVER LEAVES ITS INMATE.

SOT-DEPUTY DUNN

12:10:02-12:1012

Someone that maybe had a bit of an attitude or had maybe some kind of problem where he needed to have Anger management, they learn how to deal with that while they're here with the dogs.

Standup

In fact after going through the second chance program, few inmates ever return to jail. Which means after they walk out this gate, they're starting a new beginning--something they tell me, this program gives them the opportunity to do.

Sot 12:19:54-12:19:59

Maybe now I could go get a job training dogs or working at a vet which before I never could do that.

BEFORE THIS, BIANCHIN HAD NO EXPERIENCE IN TRAINING A DOG. NOW, HE'S ALREADY TRAINED THREE---AND ALICE, IS HIS FOURTH. HE TELLS US, HAVING THIS OPPORTUNITY GIVES HIM HOPE FOR HIS OWN FUTURE.

12:23:57-12:24:05

I do see, well, even though I messed up, I'm seeing the dogs are messing up and so I have a chance I'm not going to give up on myself.
