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 into this afternoon

Winds coming in from the Gulf of Mexico will continue to pump scattered downpours into Southwest Florida this morning and afternoon. With additional cloud cover from the rain and isolated thunder, temperatures should peak in the mid-day hours in the upper 80s.

Scattered showers will remain possible this evening, most especially for communities along and east of I-75.

On Friday, we'll begin to enter a more transitional phase for our weather as we change around the wind flow. Wind winds coming in from the north pulling in from a slightly drier air mass, the coverage of rain on Friday should be a bit more isolated than today.

For the upcoming weekend temperatures look to return to the low and mid 90s with late afternoon and early evening sea breeze induced showers and thunderstorms. Return to index of stories...

NICK? Return to index of stories...


WELLS FARGO-PLASMA CG


· Well first, let's put the Roth into context by reviewing the three different types of accounts that you can invest securities and cash in and the general tax treatment of each.

· So, first, you can invest in what are called taxable accounts. These are non-retirement accounts which you pay income tax every year on the dividends, interest and any capital gains realized during the year. You can also save and invest in tax-deferred retirement accounts like Traditional 401Ks, 403Bs, and Traditional IRAs. These accounts grow tax deferred and any money taken from these accounts are then taxed at whatever your marginal tax rate is in that year. Then there are tax-exempt or tax free accounts like Roth 401Ks and Roth IRAs where any income and growth in the account accumulate tax free and distributions during retirement come out tax free. It's this account, The Roth, that we are going to focus on today.

· The way the Roth works is that you contribute after tax dollars into the account during your working years and at retirement, you can take distributions from the account tax free. There are income limitations that will determine whether or not you are eligible to contribute to a Roth IRA but there are no such income limitations to contributing to your Roth 401K if you company provides one.

· Currently, the contribution limit for the Roth IRA is $5,500 a years with a $1,000 catch up if your age 50 or older. The contribution limit for Roth 401Ks is $17,500 a year with a $5,500 catch up for those 50 and older.

· And historically, tax free Roth IRAs and 401Ks made most sense for young investors in say their 20s, 30s, and 40s since this segment of the investing community has the longest time horizon with which to grow their accounts tax free. But recently, the appeal for Roth accounts has grown in the 40s, 50s, and 60s segment as well. And here's why.

· First, whether your 20 or 50, the tax-free compounding power of the Roth is very compelling whether or not you expect your marginal tax rate to remain the same or even fall somewhat during retirement.

· Second, as long as you have earned income, you can continue to contribute to your Roth IRA after the age of 70 ½. And this is important because it's not uncommon to see folks working into their 70's, particularly after the financial crisis of 2008 and 2009.

· Third, with the Roth, you are not required to take required minimum distributions at age 70 which means you can continue to grow your accounts tax free or even use these types of accounts for legacy purposes to leave to your children.

· And last, since distributions from Roth accounts don't increase your taxable income in the year tax, Roth's provide much greater flexibility to manager your future tax bills during retirement.

· Contact your financial advisor if you would like to learn more about the Roth IRA and how it may benefit your overall retirement income plan. Return to index of stories...

IT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE. A MOTHER IN KATY, TEXAS ACCIDENTALLY LOCKS HER KEYS IN THE CAR ALONG WITH HER TWO CHILDREN. ONLOOKERS QUICKLY RUSH TO HELP HER - BREAKING A WINDOW - ALLOWING THE MOM TO PULL HER KIDS TO SAFETY.

BUT NOT EVERY STORY HAS A HAPPY ENDING. ON A HOT DAY A CLOSED CAR CAN REACH TEMPERATURES OVER 100-DEGREES IN JUST 15 MINUTES - AT 107-DEGREES CHILDREN CAN DIE.

SO FAR THIS YEAR AT LEAST 17-CHILDREN HAVE DIED IN HOT VEHICLES ACCORDING TO KIDS-AND-CARS-DOT-ORG. AND who its happening to may surprise you.

SOT

JANETTE FENNELL/PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER/KIDSANDCARS.ORG

"90-percent of the time it's the best parents you can imagine."

TEXAS, FLORIDA, CALIFORNIA AND ARIZONA LEAD THE NATION IN THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN WHO DIE IN CARS FROM HEAT STROKE.

THE DANGER TRIGGERED A NEW "GOOD SAMARITAN LAW" IN TENNESSEE. IT ALLOWS ANYONE TO BREAK INTO A LOCKED HOT CAR WHEN THEY SEE A CHILD ALONE AND IN TROUBLE.

BUT BREAKING A CAR WINDOW ISN'T EASY, EVEN FOR PROFESSIONALS.

NATSOT: /weather channel -firefighter bangs on the car window several times-

THE BOTTOM LINE, THEY SAY, KIDS SHOULD NEVER BE LEFT ALONE IN A LOCKED CAR ON A HOT DAY.

RUNS:

:15 Personally they make me out of focus. Yeah, you get your energy, but you lose focus, you lose concentration. They make you speed up I think a little bit more than you should.

SEVERAL STUDIES SHOW A CONNECTION BETWEEN CONSUMPTION AND INCREASED BLOOD PRESSURE AND HEART CONTRACTIONS OR ABNORMAL RHYTHM. THAT'S WHAT HAS DOCTORS CONCERNED.

DR. MURALI MUPPALA/CARDIOLOGIST

RUNS:

3:22: Absolutely, these are the drinks that have a very high concentration of caffeine and also taurines and other ingredients who's affects we may not know for a long time.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

Energy drink-related emergency room visits have doubled over the past four years http:/www.cbsnews.com/news/energy-drink-related-er-visits-doubled-in-4-years/, according to government estimates, most cases involving teens and young adults. The biggest threat may be to someone with an undiagnosed heart condition.

DR. MURALI MUPPALA/CARDIOLOGIST

RUNS:

1:21 They are prone for life threatening rhythm problems, especially when you take lots of energy drinks.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO LOOK OUT FOR:

A RACING HEART, SKIPPING OR JUMPING HEARTBEAT, JITTERINESS OR EXTENDED DIZZINESS.

WHILE SOME MAY BE FINE WITH AN OCCASIONAL BOOST- IT GIVES THOMAS PAUSE FOR THOUGHT.

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.

Scattered downpours into this afternoon

Winds coming in from the Gulf of Mexico will continue to pump scattered downpours into Southwest Florida this morning and afternoon. With additional cloud cover from the rain and isolated thunder, temperatures should peak in the mid-day hours in the upper 80s.

Scattered showers will remain possible this evening, most especially for communities along and east of I-75.

On Friday, we'll begin to enter a more transitional phase for our weather as we change around the wind flow. Wind winds coming in from the north pulling in from a slightly drier air mass, the coverage of rain on Friday should be a bit more isolated than today.

For the upcoming weekend temperatures look to return to the low and mid 90s with late afternoon and early evening sea breeze induced showers and thunderstorms. Return to index of stories...

LOWE'S EMPLOYEES FIX CHAIR-TC VIDBOX


IT'S A STORY THAT'S GAINING ALOT OF ATTENTION.

A VETERAN WHO LOST HIS LEGS ABOVE THE KNEE AFTER STEPPING ON A LAND MINE IN VIETNAM GETS SOME HELP FROM WORKERS INSIDE A LOWE'S STORE.

WHEN HIS WHEEL CHAIR BROKE, EMPLOYEES IN NEW YORK JUMPED INTO ACTION.

CAROLINA LEID REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


LOWE'S EMPLOYEES FIX CHAIR-PKG


Michael Solsona of Graniteville, Staten Island, is a veteran who lost his legs above the knee after stepping on a land mine in Vietnam. Solsona has been confined to a wheelchair since the incident, and even after repeated inquiries to the Veterans Administration office, he has still not been provided a new chair.

Solsona depends on his wheelchair to get around but it's always dependable.

Last week, he was shopping at the Lowe's home improvement store on Forest Avenue when he felt it give way.

"I said, 'Oh no Michael, what are we going to do? We don't have any tools. And he said, 'Hello are you crazy? We're in Lowes. We're in the tool capitol of the world!'" said Frieda Solsona, Michael's wife.

The Solsona's planned to fix the wheelchair themselves at home.

But three Lowe's associates weren't having it.

"They tore the wheelchair apart. They tried all different types of bolts," Michael Solsona said, "I was thanking them and they said you're not leaving here until the wheelchair is like new."

The Vietnam veteran lost his legs stepping on a land mine when he was just 20 years old.

He's been waiting for a new wheelchair from the VA for longer than he can remember.

His story has gone viral with dozens offering to give him a new one and thousands thanking the workers for helping him.

"Our associates go above and beyond to take care of the community. They think of them as family," said Troy Goins, a Lowe's manager.

Michael says he's looking forward to a new wheelchair, but says this will be an excellent backup.

"It's good, it's great, I hope the new wheelchair is as good as this one is now," Michael Solsona said.

Solsona thanked the courteous employees, who responded, "It was our honor."

Clearly these employees rank high in compassion. Return to index of stories...
