TERESA DUBOSE -- BABY ATTENDED DANIELS ACADEMY DAYCARE

7:22:40 My heart absolutely sunk into my chest.

FOR THE LAST FIVE MONTHS -- TERESA DUBOSE'S 7 1/2 MONTH OLD DAUGHTER HAS BEEN ATTENDING A DAYCARE -- UNDER THE DIRECTION OF A CONVICTED FELON.

DUBOSE

7:23:27 The facility was fantastic in the very beginning, and then it made a turn for the worse. 7:23:39

BEGINNING THIS PAST JULY. DUBOSE BEGAN TO NOTICE SEVERAL STAFFING CHANGES AT THE DANIELS ACADEMY -- INCLUDING A NEW DIRECTOR. WHICH RAISED RED FLAGS IN THE MINDS OF MANY PARENTS.

BRANDON PRICE / PARENT

"Seeing all the teachers leave was a gigantic concern for us. And then on top of that the lack of communication when leadership changed."

ON THURSDAY. LEE COUNTY DEPUTIES BOOKED CHRISTINA PERERA INTO JAIL. PARENTS AND TEACHERS FROM DANIELS ACADEMY CONFIRMED TO NBC 2 THAT IT IS THE SAME WOMAN THEY KNEW AS

HOLLY HAWKINS. A QUICK SEARCH ONLINE INDICATES PERERA HAS A HISTORY OF RUNNING DAYCARES INTO THE GROUND. SOMETHING MANY OF THE TEACHERS SHE EMPLOYED HAD NO CLUE OF.

FAITH HODGES / TEACHER AT ACADEMY

Not at all, we didn't even know her real name.

FAITH HODGES WORKED FOR SEVERAL YEARS AT THE DAY CARE -- AND SAYS "HAWKINS" WOULD GET DEFENSIVE WHENEVER STAFF ASKED HER QUESTIONS ABOUT THE DAYCARE'S LICENSES.

HODGES

"She just kind of turned it into a hostile working environment, she just got very nasty, was very secretive."

THE TWENTY KIDS THERE ON THURSDAY WERE IMMEDIATELY TAKEN HOME -- AND THE DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES HAS SHUT DOWN THE DAYCARE FOR 90 DAYS. AS THEY CONTINUE TO INVESTIGATE.

PRICE

"This situation just evolved so quickly. you know, anyone could fall victim to this." Return to index of stories...

HOA president, Heritage Cove

59:42 59:46

Take your life in your hands and just pray and hit the gas:46

It's one reason why residents of the Heritage Cove community -

along with many others who travel these roads every day

have been begging for a traffic light at that intersection for years.

Terri Hamilton

Heritage Cove resident

47:27

most of us will go out there and make the right because we're deathly afraid to go across:31

During a meeting this afternoon at Heritage Cove, Florida Department of Transportation officials told them -

it's unnecessary and it's not happening.

however, they are in the design phase of a project that will improve safety at the intersection.

47:52

we don't want someone to have to die before you give us a light that is exactly what it sounded liek today at our meeting:56 there were a lot of boos a lot of unhappy people that were there:01

STAND UP

Laura Roberts

51:32 51:47

Department of transportation officials say they have studied this intersection several times over the years and every time the data doesn't even come close to matching the federal criteria needed to put up that traffic signal

01:45 01:48

its just so inconvenient, this would be so much easier

F-DOT plans to lengthen turn lanes at the intersection, open up the median--

and get rid of the option to make that difficult left turn out of A&W Bulb.

All of which they call safety solutions --

acknowledging it's not the solution people want.

Construction could start by the end of next summer.

In Lee County, Laura Roberts, NBC2. Return to index of stories...

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.

TRACKING SLIGHTLY DRIER AIR

The onshore winds continued on Thursday, with scattered showers and storms developing. This activity may push back into the Urban Corridor later this evening, with temps holding in the 80s. Expect the storms to diminish overnight, with lows in the upper 70s.

Slightly drier air works into the region starting Friday. Winds will shift from the west to the south and east, reducing the threat for morning rain showers. Showers and storms will develop in the PM hours and slowly diminish in the evening. Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

The weekend is still looking fairly decent, with most of both days dry. Showers and storms will develop in the afternoon and early evening, but these will be widely scattered. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be in the low to mid 90s.

Even more dry air works into Southwest Florida to start next week, keeping rain and storm chances low. Only an isolated shower will be possible on Monday, with highs in the mid 90s.

Rain chances do increase as we move through next week, with highs holding in the low to mid 90s.

TROPICAL UPDATE

With Bertha now history, things are very quiet in the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and the open waters of the Atlantic.

A couple of tropical waves are floating between the Lesser Antilles and Africa, but those will have a difficult time developing.

No major activity is expected in the tropics over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...
