Steven Slachta/ BONITA Spring city council member

engineer, architect, or anything like that."

MAYOR BEN NELSON WANTED CONSTRUCTION TO START FIVE YEARS FROM NOW.

CREWS WERE GOING TO ADD ANOTHER LANE EASTBOUND AND WESTBOUND FROM OLD

THAT WOULD'VE BROUGHT THE TOTAL TO SIX LANES.

AND IT HAD A PRICE TAG OF 11 MILLION DOLLARS.

Mayor Ben Nelson/ Phoner

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.

If you've been in Lee County today, it's been quite the soggy and stormy start to our Monday thanks to a train of tropical downpours that moved in from the Gulf of Mexico.

For those of us across Charlotte and Collier County, it's a different story; we've seen plenty of sunshine along with temperatures in the low to mid 90s.

Now that the rain has faded across Lee County, most of us will be in store for a mainly dry and sunny afternoon. A few stray downpours will be possible, but these should be few and far between.

The evening hours and overnight should be pretty quiet with only a couple spots of rain drifting in from the Gulf.

By Tuesday morning, we'll keep the door open for another round of isolated morning showers or even a thunderstorm, and a few of these downpours may linger into the afternoon on Tuesday.

Aside from a few passing downpours, expect a mix of sunshine and clouds with temperatures warming into the low to mid 90s.

We'll another uptick in rain chances by Wednesday as more moisture builds in from the north, and with our winds coming in from the Gulf, rain will be possible during the morning hours as well.

We continue with scattered rain and storms in our forecast from Thursday into the weekend, but the weekend activity likely won't affect us until the afternoon and evening.

TROPICAL UPDATE

We're tracking a tropical wave in the central Atlantic that's been becoming better organized over the last couple of days.

It's a good possibility that this feature will develop into a tropical depression or perhaps a tropical storm by the middle of the week.

The track through the end of the week will be west, taking this feature toward the Windward Islands by the weekend.

Most forecast models suggest this storm eventually recurve to the north by next week, but it's still too soon to know for sure. We'll continue tracking this tropical wave throughout the week in the NBC 2 First Alert Hurricane Tracker Center. Return to index of stories...


BASEBALL VANDALISM-OTS


VANDALS JUST HIT A NORTH FORT MYERS BASEBALL FIELD.

THEY SPRAY PAINTED ON DUGOUTS AND RUINED THE SCOREBOARD.

AS NBC 2'S CHLOE MORRONI SHOWS US-

LEAGUE LEADERS ARE FURIOUS. Return to index of stories...


BASEBALL VANDALISM-PKG


IF YOU ASK 6 YEAR OLD BRYCE.

THIS MESSAGE COULDN'T BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.

35:46 -:48

"I like hitting and running."

SO WHEN BRYCE THORNTON AND HIS MOM CHRISTINA SAW THAT SOMEONE VANDALIZED THE BASEBALL FIELDS AT NORTH FORT MYERS COMMUNITY PARK OVER THE WEEKEND.

24:24-:28

"I was disgusted, it's disgusting."

THE VANDALS SPRAY PAINTED ON DUG OUTS, WALLS, EVEN THE SCOREBOARD.

24:35 -:38

"I don't know why you'd want to destroy something for the kids."

CHRISTINA IS THE TREsAURER FOR THE NORTH FORT MYERS BABE RUTH LEAGUE. SHE SAYS IT'S A COUNTY RUN PARK, SO CREWS WILL PAINT OVER THE WORDS BUT THE SCORE BOARD IS A DIFFERENT STORY, PEPSI SPONSORS IT AND IT'S THE LEAGUES JOB TO MAINTAIN IT.

24:40

"i'm very angry it puts us in a bad predicament cause we can't afford to fix it."

BUT TO THE LEAGUE PRESIDENT BILL LEMMERMAN, IT GOES WAY BEYOND THE CASH.

28:35

But it's more than just the cost it's just principal,. Why, read a book do something constructive.

STAND UP CHLOE

44:45 -:54

"this isn't the first time the place has been hit, just about two months ago someone went into the boys bathroom and lit a trash can on fire you can see the charr marks on the wall."

31:38 -:45

"I would hope these kids or whoever did it would learn a lesson, they probably won't until they get caught and have to pay for it."

AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT CHRISTINA AND BILL HOPE HAPPENS.

SO KIDS LIKE BRYCE CAN PLAY THE GAME THEY LOVE SO MUCH, WITHOUT HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT SOMEONE TRYING TO DESTROY IT.
