SOUTH TRAIL FIRE MARSHALL SAYS THE MAN INSIDE IS LUCKY TO BE ALIVE THIS MORNING.

WE FOUND OUT HE HAD A SMOKE DETECTOR. BUT IT DIDN'T HAVE ANY BATTERES.

SO HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOUR SMOKE ALARMS ARE WORKING CORRECTLY?

MOST ALARMS GIVE YOU A WARNING WHEN THE BATTERY IS RUNNING LOW. EITHER A SOUND OR A BLINKING LIGHT. Return to index of stories...


SMOKE DETECTORS-SOT


42:49-43:08"You need to check the batteries. You should test your alarm once a month and change the battery ever year. How simply is it? Very simple. Every smoke alarm is a little different but you just pop it out and pop it back in and do a test. And there you go. "

SOUTH TRAIL PROVIDES PEOPLE LIVING IN THEIR DISTRICT WITH SMOKE ALARMS AND BATTERIES THAT ARE GOOD FOR TEN YEARS.

FOR THE REST OF YOU. CALL YOUR FIRE DISTRICT AND ASK IF THEY HAVE A SIMILAR PROGRAM.

OTHERWISE. THEY ARE AVAILABLE AT MOST HARDWARE STORES AND USUALLY ARENT MORE THAN 10 BUCKS. Return to index of stories...

HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY JEH JOHNSON HEADS TO THE BORDER TODAY. VISITING A NEW MEXICO DETENTION CENTER AND MEETING TEXAS OFFICIALS.

AFTER HIS TWO-DAY TRIP TO GUATEMALA.

IN BETWEEN. HE CAME BACK TO WASHINGTON TO TELL LAWMAKERS. IMMIGRATION AND BORDER OFFICIALS WILL RUN OUT OF MONEY STARTING NEXT MONTH:

"We're going to have to go to some very dramatic, harsh form of reprogramming."

LAWMAKERS ARE WORKING A DEAL TO GRANT PRESIDENT OBAMA'S THREE-POINT-SEVEN BILLION DOLLAR EMERGENCY REQUEST

IN EXCHANGE FOR ALLOWING THE GOVERNMENT MORE FLEXIBILITY TO QUICKLY DEPORT CHILDREN FROM CENTRAL AMERICA.

AND POSSIBLY PUT ANKLE BRACELETS ON SOME IMMIGRANTS HERE. TO ENSURE THEY SHOW UP FOR COURT.

THE GOVERNMENT ADMITTED, ALMOST HALF THE CHILDREN THAT CROSS THE BORDER. DON'T.

IT'S OVERWHELMING SMALL TOWNS LIKE MCALLEN, TEXAS:

"We didnt expect people at the bus station dropped off by border patrol." "At this point people are being released from federal custody so they are technically on their own."

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS STILL DEFENDING HIS DECISION NOT TO VISIT THE BORDER.

"Rather than wage another political stunt that wastes time, wastes taxpayers' money, I've got a better idea. Do something."

THERE ARE AT LEAST TWO BILLS IN THE WORKS HERE THAT WOULD ALLOW CONGRESS TO ACT BEFORE THE AUGUST BREAK.

FIRST ALERT 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.

Another round of afternoon and early evening showers and storms are expected today, compliments of the seabreeze interaction developing from the Gulf of Mexico.

Despite the fact that the Saharan Air Layer, a mass of dry, dusty air moving across the Atlantic will trim back the overall coverage of rain today, we'll still be expecting storms to fire along the I-75 and US 41 corridors later today.

Temperatures look seasonal this afternoon. Highs should range from the upper 80s along the coast to low and mid 90s for the inland and interior ranges of the peninsula.

For the upcoming weekend, a rather typical July weather pattern will be in play. That means highs in the low 90s with a decent opportunity for some late afternoon and early evening showers and storms.

TROPICAL UPDATE

Conditions remain quiet across the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. No tropical cyclones are active and none are anticipated to develop in the next three to five days. Return to index of stories...

FUGITIVE FRIDAY-SS(4)


We are starting off our list this week with Jimmy Lee Frederick, a fugitive with

an obvious drug problem - and a lengthy arrest record - in both Lee and Collier

Counties. Right now, he's wanted in Naples on a bench warrant for possession

of a controlled substance. His previous experiences at the jail include arrests for

intimidation of a victim, DUI and possession of a synthetic narcotic. He was last

known to be living in Naples, but also has connections in Fort Myers who may be

harboring him. 30 year old Frederick is 6'0", 165 pounds and sometimes uses

the alias of Jimmy Flood. He has a tattoo

a skull with flames on his left arm.

And next up is Kernan Louis-Marc who went into hiding after being arrested

earlier this year for lewd and lascivious behavior on a victim between the ages

of 12 and 16. According to the victim, Louis-Marc had molested her over the

course of roughly four years during time frames when her mom was at work.

Despite the trauma is caused the young girl, she never disclosed the disgusting

accusations to anyone until she recently confided in a friend, who took it

upon themselves to report it to law enforcement. When questioned about the

accusations, 43 year old Louis-Marc refused to cooperate and was immediately

arrested for lewd and lascivious behavior. He bonded out from jail just over 24

hours later, and now he's seemingly disappeared, never having showed back

up in court to face the allegations or his accuser. Louis-Marc was last known to

be living in Lehigh, but also has connections in Collier County. Upon his arrest,

Louis-Marc will be held without bond in the Lee County Jail.

Also on the lam this week is a Collier County man wanted for violating terms of

his state probation on two counts of grand theft. Eric Sparkman, known on the

streets as "Sparky," has amassed a sizeable rap sheet over the years on charges

including grand theft, drug possession, armed robbery, aggravated battery,

assault and even trying to scam the utility company by rigging his equipment to

scam free electricity. This 34 year old fugitive was last known to be living in the

Golden Gate area, but has gone into hiding since his latest warrant came out in

late April. Sparkman is 5'11", 175 pounds and could be working off the books as

a day laborer.And rounding out our list is Crispin Tovar - wanted on four counts of sexual

battery and four counts of committing a lewd or lascivious act upon a child.

Though 68 year old Tovar was arrested for those charges several years ago, he

was released from jail under the guise that he'd show back up in court to defend

himself and tell his side of the story. But when his day came up on the court

docket, Tovar was nowhere to be found. And now, he's spent the last several

years on the run. This accused child molester may have left the area, but still

has ties in Naples, Hendry and Lee Counties. So all we need is that one call

telling us where he's at, so that he can finally have his day in court. Return to index of stories...

FIRST ALERT 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.

Another round of afternoon and early evening showers and storms are expected today, compliments of the seabreeze interaction developing from the Gulf of Mexico.

Despite the fact that the Saharan Air Layer, a mass of dry, dusty air moving across the Atlantic will trim back the overall coverage of rain today, we'll still be expecting storms to fire along the I-75 and US 41 corridors later today.

Temperatures look seasonal this afternoon. Highs should range from the upper 80s along the coast to low and mid 90s for the inland and interior ranges of the peninsula.

For the upcoming weekend, a rather typical July weather pattern will be in play. That means highs in the low 90s with a decent opportunity for some late afternoon and early evening showers and storms.

TROPICAL UPDATE

Conditions remain quiet across the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. No tropical cyclones are active and none are anticipated to develop in the next three to five days. Return to index of stories...
