CA WATER FINES-PKG


THIS MORNING - CALIFORNIA'S WORST DROUGHT ON RECORD - IS ALSO BRINGING RECORD FINES.

.WITH millions of Californians NOW facING PENALTIES of up to $500 per day for a list of specific violations, among them:

-- washing your car without a shut-off nozzle on the hose.

-- allowing unchecked runoff from hoses or sprinklers.

--- washing down sidewalks or driveways.

"THESE DROUGHT RESTRICTIONS FOCUS ON OUTDOOR WATER.THAT'S USUALLY WHERE MOST OF THE WASTE IS."

To catch water-wasters, some cities are encouraging drought-shaming. reporting neighbors or others violating the new regulations. This woman, who didn't want her identity known, said she'd be willing to turn over photos of non-stop sprinkler use.

"VERY SAD.WE'RE IN A WATER SHORTAGE AND I THINK WE ALL NEED TO BE AWARE."

Despite Governor Brown's plea for a 20 per cent voluntary reduction in statewide water use, the demand has actually ticked up slightly from a year ago, mostly along coastal southern California from San Diego to L.A.

Drought experts say conserving is essential common sense.

"IT'S OK TO LET YOUR LAWN SUFFER A LITTLE BIT, UNTIL WE GET THROUGH THIS TIME."

And it's not just citizens now on notice: water suppliers will face fines of up to ten thousand dollars a day if they defy or ignore court-ordered conservation measures. 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.

With an onshore flow in place for the remainder of the day, that'll keep the door open for some passing downpours and thunderstorms across Southwest Florida.

Our inland areas will see the highest rain chances, but even closer to the coast we'll be watch for some rain to build in from the northwest out of the Gulf of Mexico.

Outside of the scattered rain, expect partial sunshine with highs around 90 and winds out of the west southwest at 10 mph.

Some lingering rain and thunderstorm activity will be possible tonight, particularly along the coast.

Onshore flow will increase the chances for more morning storms again Thursday morning. Overall Thursday's forecast looks to be very similar to what were expecting today.

By the weekend, we start to transition back to our afternoon storm pattern, meaning mornings will be sunnier and drier.

TRACKING THE TROPICS

Things are quiet in the Gulf, Caribbean and Atlantic waters. No major activity expected in coming days. Return to index of stories...


MMA FIGHTER WITH DOWN SYNDROME-TRX VO-TCMON


GARRETT HOLEVE IS MAKING A NAME FOR HIMSELF IN THE MIXED MARTIAL ARTS CIRCLES. DESPITE HIS DOWN SYNDROME.

BUT NOW HE'S FACING HIS TOUGHEST COMPETITOR. THE STATE OF FLORIDA.

NBC'S CHRISTINA HERNANDEZ SHOWS US WHAT THE 24 YEAR OLD IS UP AGAINST. Return to index of stories...


MMA FIGHTER WITH DOWN SYNDROME-PKG


"This gym and martial arts is Garrett's life. Coming here everyday to train. Seeing his friends, being with his friends, doing the things that they do, and then competing is his life."

AND THE FACT THAT GARRETT HOLEVE HAS LIVED HIS ENTIRE WITH DOWN SYNDROME DOESN'T GET IN THE WAY. HE STILL TRAINS LIKE ANY OTHER MMA FIGHTER, UNDER THE WATCHFUL EYE OF HIS DAD.

"People see his work ethic and they see how much he wants it and that kind of attracts them to him. They respect the effort that he puts in."

THE 24-YEAR-OLD HAS EVEN FOUND AN EQUALLY MATCHED OPPONENT TO GO UP AGAINST. DAVID STEPHEN FROM NEBRASKA - A SPECIAL OLYMPIAN WITH MONO CEREBRAL PALSY. BUT STEPPING INTO A RING FOR A SANCTIONED FIGHT HAS BEEN DENIED. SO ATTORNEY AMANDA HEYSTEK HAS PUT ON HER BOXING GLOVES - TAKING THE FLORIDA BOXING COMMISSION TO COURT. SUING FOR DISCRIMINATION.

"What they've offered is what's called an exhibition match and it's more of a demonstration of skills. There's no scoring. There's no declared winner. It's not a competition. Garrett is trained to compete."

"In August when Garrett got the news that he couldn't fight, he was so upset it took him weeks to get back here in the gym."

"He didn't understand why he's not allowed to compete. He understands he has Down syndrome, but he doesn't feel like it's stopped him from competing, and yeah, he was very depressed."

"I was disappointed. I was upset. Um, I was crying."

"I had to drag him back in here because he didn't know why he was coming here, if I can't compete, why should I train?"

BECAUSE IT'S WHAT HE LOVES, HE CAME BACK. THROWING PUNCHES. AND TAKING HITS TOO - BOTH PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY - FIGHTING TO OVERCOME A CHALLENGE THAT GARRETT SAYS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HAVING DOWN SYNDROME. ALL HE WANTS IS WHAT HE'S PUT HIS BLOOD, SWEAT, AND TEARS INTO - A SANCTIONED FIGHT.

"If you called him tomorrow and told him to show up to fight, he would show up to fight. I have no doubt about that." Return to index of stories...
