SARA SIDNER PICKS UP THE STORY. Return to index of stories...


STERLING TAKES THE STAND-PKG


THE DRAMA STARTED BEFORE COURT EVEN BEGAN…WITH THE ENTRANCE OF SHELLY STERLING.

HER HUSBAND DONALD STERLING WAS USHERED THROUGH A PRIVATE ENTRANCE….

BUT IT WAS HIS TESTIMONY IN COURT THAT CREATED THE BIGGEST STIR.

DONALD STERLING WAS EMOTIONAL…AT FIRST HE TEARED UP WHEN TALKING ABOUT HIS WIFE SHELLY.

….I TRUSTED MY WIFE. I RELIED ON HER. I LOVE HER. HE SAID AND TOOK A DEEP BREATH TRYING NOT TO CRY. I AUTHORIZED HER TO NEGOTIATE. NEGOTIATE IS NOT TO CONSUMMATE A SALE.

FOR MOST OF THE TESTIMONY HE WAS COMBATIVE, AND AT TIMES EVEN RIDICULED HIS ESTRANGED WIFE'S ATTORNEY BERT FIELDS WHO IS ONE OF L-A'S MOST FEARED LITIGATORS….AT ONE POINT DONALD OBJECTS TO A QUESTION FIELDS ASKS SAYING.

"…BE A MAN FOR GOD SAKES STAND UP AND BE A MAN."

FOR SEVERAL QUESTIONS INVOLVING DATES AND TIMES DONALD SAID HE DIDN'T REMEMBER, EVEN WHEN SHELLY'S ATTORNEY READ OUT WHAT DONALD SAID DURING THIS INTERVIEW WITH CNN'S OWN ANDERSON COOPER.

:…"I have 29 partners in a league that's a wonderful league. I respect them. And I love every owner. Every owner knows me. I love the commissioner."

STERLING SAID HE COULDN'T REMEMBER THAT EXCHANGE EITHER.

BUT HE DID REMEMBER EXACTLY WHY HE DID NOT WANT TO SELL THE TEAM FOR 2 BILLION DOLLARS.HE BELIEVES HIS WIfE WAS BEING TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF BY THE NBA-- AND THE TEAM WAS ACTUALLY WORTH MORE-- EVEN DOUBLE.

"The idea that this 2 billion dollars is an extravagance is wrong. He actually thinks it's going to be worth more than that because of the television contracts down the road."

AS FOR HIS PERFORMANCE ON THE STAND BOTH SIDES WERE EQUALLY ENTHUSIASTIC.

"Donald Sterling did nothing but prove the doctors were absolutely correct in their conclusions. You can't help but be uh feel a little sad, sympathy for the man clearly not working with all of his faculties."

"I think Donald did an excellent job on the stand. I want to say out of all the lawyers in the room If I needed a lawyer I'd hire him. The claim that he lacks competency is a sham, its absurd."

IT WAS CLEAR TO THE PACKED COURTROOM THAT DONALD STERLING WAS HOLDING COURT….IN THE PROBATE COURT. Return to index of stories...

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.

Little overall changes are expected Wednesday.

Another round of showers and strong storms will begin to develop later on in the afternoon.

The strongest of storms will be primarily inland, south of Lake Okeechobee.

Heavy downpours, small hail and deadly lightning will all accompany those storms.

Can't rule out completely a few isolated showers making their way back towards the coastline before things wrap up into the evening.

Highs this afternoon appear to be on course for the normal.

Many of us will top out in the low 90s Wednesday. With plenty of moisture in place, the feel like temperature will be in the upper 90s.

Showers wind down halfway through the night and clouds thin out before waking up Thursday morning. Overnight lows are forecast to be near seasonal values - hanging in the mid to low 70s.

The remainder of the week will be a very typical summer pattern. Showers and storms in the afternoon with highs staying in the lows 90s. A bit of dry air pushes in Friday helping reduce rain chances a bit. Still mentioning rain Friday just not as widespread. Return to index of stories...

"My fear is always that they would get lost or separated from me, and God forbid, something happen and someone take them from me. The other thing is if they couldn't find me, how would they communicate on how to find us?"

KATIE GIBBONS IS THE MOM OF TWO YOUNG BOYS. WHO. LIKE MOST KIDS LOVE TO PLAY AND DISCOVER NEW THINGS. SO WHEN HER FAMILY TOOK A TRIP TO DISNEY WORLD. SHE HAD REASON TO BE A LITTLE ANXIOUS.

"We talk to the kids about hold my hand, stay close, stay by me. But, in a crowded place like Disney World or a theme park. it's just so easy to lose track."

TO KEEP HER KIDS CONNECTED. GIBBONS HAD A NEW TRICK UP HER SLEEVE. OR RATHER UP HER BOYS' SLEEVE.

THE SAFETY TAT. IS A TEMPORARY TATTOO THAT PARENTS CAN WRITE THEIR CONTACT INFORMATION ON. IF A FAMILY GETS SEPARATED. A CHILD CAN TO SHOW THEIR TATTOO TO SOMEONE IN CHARGE.

"I feel it gives a little piece of mind."

THE SAFETY TAT WAS ACTUALLY INVENTED BY A MOM, MICHELE WELSH. WHO CAME UP WITH THE IDEA AFTER A FAMILY TRIP. SHE SAYS THE PRODUCT IS ESPECIALLY GREAT FOR YOUNG CHILDREN.

"We've gotten a lot of feedback from security personal who say how much of their time is spent looking for someone named "mommy." Young kids sometimes really don't know their parent's mobile phone number or sometimes don't know their parent's name in order to effectively communicate how to get them back reunited with a parent."

"THE SAFETY TATS DON'T STOP WITH PHONE NUMBERS. THERE ARE ALSO TATTOOS FOR ALLERGIES. SO IF YOUR CHILD IS HEADED TO A CAMP, OR EVEN A NEW SCHOOL. THE TATTOO CAN HELP PREVENT ACCIDENTAL EXPOSURES."

AND IT'S NOT JUST THE PARENTS WHO GET A LITTLE PIECE OF MIND.

"By a child having it on his or her arm, they realize that's the shortcut to get back to mom and dad. They don't panic. they're empowered."

"It's something that could help you."

THE TATTOOS ARE AVAILABLE ONLINE. AND IN ABOUT 200 STORES NATIONWIDE. A SIX PACK STARTS AT ABOUT 11 DOLLARS. AND THEY LAST UP TO A WEEK. FOR HEALTHLINE ELIZABETH VOWELL WAFB NINE NEWS. Return to index of stories...

HIT BY LIGHTING CAUGHT ON CAM-PKG


CHAD GREENLEES THOUGHT HE WAS WATCHING JUST A NORMAL SUMMER STORM.

Here comes the hail I think.

BUT AS THE LIGHTNING GREW CLOSER TO HIS ARVADA HOUSE CHAD NEVER THOUGHT HE'D CAPTURE THIS:

JUST AS THE CAMERA WENT BLACK SO DID CHAD'S ABILITY TO FUNCTION.

I was incoherent, my ear still really hurts and rings still.

BUT SOMEHOW HE'S STILL STANDING. CHAD SAYS AFTER THE STRIKE HE WAS PHYSICALLY PARALYZED, YOU CAN EVEN HEAR HIM FALL TO THE GROUND THEN THE VIDEO CUTS OFF.

Reporter: Can you believe what you captured.

No I've watched it about 20 times.

THERE'S NO OBVIOUS SIGNS WHERE THE LIGHTNING HIT. THE GREENLEES HOUSE DOESN'T HAVE ANY DAMAGE THE DAMAGE RESTS ONLY ON CHAD.

I think is what I got when I fell, this is an IV band they got to me so fast.

WHILE CHAD'S FINE NOW. PEOPLE ALL ACROSS ARVADA ARE STILL CLEANING UP.

All the screens are shredded and destroyed, the siding.

TONIGHT MARY GIBBS'S HOME IS IN NEED OF MAJOR REPAIRS. THE HAIL CHIPPED AWAY AT HER SIDING AND THE WIND FILLED HER YARD WITH PLENTY OF DEBRIS.

All of a sudden you could see there were tree limbs down, and it was like piles of hail and it was oh my goodness.

THE STORM ALSO KNOCKED OUT POWER FOR OVER 11-THOUSAND PEOPLE. BUT BY THIS EVENING THAT NUMBER IS DOWN TO LESS THAN A 100.

MONDAY'S STORM IS ONE PEOPLE ACROSS DENVER AREN'T LIKELY TO FORGET ANYTIME SOON.

ESPECIALLY PEOPLE LIKE CHAD WHO PROMISES TO BE MORE CAREFUL IN THE FUTURE.

I don't think i'll go playing around in the rain like I used I really don't. Here comes the hail I think. 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.

Little overall changes are expected Wednesday.

Another round of showers and strong storms will begin to develop later on in the afternoon.

The strongest of storms will be primarily inland, south of Lake Okeechobee.

Heavy downpours, small hail and deadly lightning will all accompany those storms.

Can't rule out completely a few isolated showers making their way back towards the coastline before things wrap up into the evening.

Highs this afternoon appear to be on course for the normal.

Many of us will top out in the low 90s Wednesday. With plenty of moisture in place, the feel like temperature will be in the upper 90s.

Showers wind down halfway through the night and clouds thin out before waking up Thursday morning. Overnight lows are forecast to be near seasonal values - hanging in the mid to low 70s.

The remainder of the week will be a very typical summer pattern. Showers and storms in the afternoon with highs staying in the lows 90s. A bit of dry air pushes in Friday helping reduce rain chances a bit. Still mentioning rain Friday just not as widespread. Return to index of stories...


SELFIES GONE BAD-ON CAM


MOST AMERICANS NOW CARRY A CAMERA IN SOME FORMS WITH THEM AT ALL TIMES.

ADD IN SOCIAL MEDIA AND YOU HAVE AN INSATIABLE NEED TO TAKE PICTURES.

THE CELEBRATION OF SELF HAS GIVEN US THE SELFIE. AND JUST THIS WEEK SOME VERY BRAVE ATHLETES HAVE COMPLAINED: SOMEONE'S GONNA GET HURT.

NBC'S JENNA WOLF REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


SELFIES GONE BAD-PKG


It's the goal with any spectator sport… proximity to the action, right? The closer you get. the better… unless. it's too close…

NAT rider swats away cellphone

you may want that tracking shot to start here with all the crazy cams only pics

Which is exactly what's happening at the Tour de France over in England this week -- millions of fans lining the streets to get a glimpse. but at the same time. putting themselves and the riders in danger, just to snap a selfie. you may want the swat of the phone here

It's not enough anymore to take a snapshot of just yourself or just the action … apparently Le tour is not Le Tour without Le Selfie.

US cyclist Tejay van Garderen who's competing in the race recently lashed out on social media tweeting: "Standing in the middle of the road with you back turned while 200 cyclists comae at you, just to take a selfie. #think"

But plenty of people aren't thinking.

SOT RACHEL / BUZZFEED 020356 RZ: I think the year 2014 might be the year of taking the selfie to the next level. Doing whatever is crazy enough to make people notice your selfie, stand apart.

So what qualifies as a good selfie these days?

MOSYou've got to have the right lighting.

Lighting?? How about risking arrest? Bodily injury. or. pure humiliation

These days, nothing is anything without proof YOU were there.

More than an autograph or even a conversation, as Taylor Swift recently wrote in an op-ed:

The only memento "kids these days want is a selfie."

JENNA STANDUP: The selfie is all about the action, right? Check out Brian Williams behind me. He's on the phone. That's crazy action. I'm gonna capture it. Great.

MOS"It's what behind you is what is really in now."

MOS "Some people, they don't believe you. They don't believe you. Like I met Derek Jeter. It's like, oh yea? Did you take a picture?"

A cautionary word to the selfie-takers. the more time you spend capturing the moment, like this guy did, the less time for you to actually live it.

HEALTH MATTERS-ON CAM


AN ESTIMATED 15 PERCENT OF STROKES ARE A RESULT OF A HEART CONDITION COMMONLY CALLED A-F-I-B.

DESPITE THE POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS OUTCOMES, MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW WHAT AFIB IS - MUCH LESS KNOW IF THEY HAVE IT.

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


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


NOT QUITE A TICKING TIME BOMB- BUT AN ESTIMATED 2.7 MILLION AMERICANS ARE RISKING THEIR HEALTH BECAUSE OF A FAULTY TICKER. AN IRREGULAR HEART BEAT CALLED ATRIAL FIBRILLATION-

DR. RICHARD CHAZAL/CARDIOLOGIST

RUNS:

18: A-fib or atrial fibrillation is an irregular heart rhythm where the upper chambers of the heart actually quiver rather than contracting in an organized fashion.

THE HEART BEING OUT OF RHYTHM, DRAMATICALLY INCREASES THE RISK OF STROKE- APPROXIMATELY FIVE TIMES HIGHER THAN THE GENERAL POPULATION.

DR. RICHARD CHAZAL/CARDIOLOGIST

RUNS:

:42: The problem with atrial fibrillation is really small blood clots can form inside the heart. If the blood clot leaves the heart the first two blood vessels that exit from the heart actually go to the brain. And so there is a risk that a stroke could ensue.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

People with Afib frequently feel a fluttering heart, without knowing the cause or seriousness. As with many health conditions, the risk of Afib goes up with age. Fewer than one in every 100 people in their 50s has it. Compared to 10 out of every 100 in their 80s. When combined with other conditions- the stroke risk increases.

DR. RICHARD CHAZAL/CARDIOLOGIST

RUNS:

1:09 A number of other contributing factors age, the presence of diabetes, a prior stroke, high blood pressure, gender renders some risk. Actually women are slightly higher risk than men.

THE BLOOD THINNER WARFARIN IS OFTEN PRESCRIBED. IT REDUCES STROKE RISK BY UP TO 65 PERCENT. THOUGH PATIENTS MUST BE CLOSELY MONITORED.

DR. RICHARD CHAZAL/CARDIOLOGIST

RUNS:

5:11 The bottom line is, one must consult his or her physician to make certain there's a careful analysis of the risk and the benefit in terms of therapy.

SO IF YOUR HEART IS OFF-BEAT, TAKE IT AS A SIGN TO TUNE INTO YOUR HEALTH. FOR LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM, I'M AMY OSHIER. Return to index of stories...
