SOT - VENICE PLANE CRASH PKG - Tower

00:00:00 I don't know, he's trying to make the airport he says he's not going to make the airport but he's going to be on the beach. 00:00:06

A PRELIMINARY N-T-S-B REPORT SHOWS THE PLANE HAD NOT FLOWN IN 3 ½ MONTHS. BUT ON JULY 27TH, DURING A PRE-FLIGHT CHECK COKE-A-MOORE EXPERIENCED IGNITION TROUBLE NOT WITHIN ACCEPTABLE LIMITS. HE SOLVED THE ISSUE BEFORE WHAT INVESTIGATORS CALL A "NORMAL" TAKEOFF.

MINUTES LATER THE ENGINE LOST POWER AND THE PROPELLER BEGAN WINDMILLING.

SOT - Witness -

COKE-A-MOORE TOLD INVESTIGATORS HE WOULD FLIP IF HE PUT THE PLANE DOWN IN DEEP WATER SO HE HEADED FOR WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS AN EMPTY PART OF THE BEACH.

LEE COUNTY NEEDS HIGH SCHOOLS-PLASMA


BY THE END OF THIS YEAR LEE COUNTY EXPECTS TO REACH 89K STUDENTS.

THEY NEED TWO NEW HIGH SCHOOLS.

ONE IN LEHIGH ACRES THE OTHER IN BONITA SPRINGS.

THERE'S JUST ONE PROBLEM: NO MONEY TO DO IT! Return to index of stories...


LEE COUNTY NEEDS HIGH SCHOOLS-BNR-PKG


mark Mora/Director of Planning / :56 We're growing at about 2% a year. Which is the equivalent to about the size of a high school ;59

OR ABOUT 1500 NEW STUDENTS EACH YEAR.

mark Mora / 02:28 We project by 2017- 18 we will reach our maximum capacity. 02:30

THE INFLUX OF STUDENTS MOSTLY BEING FELT IN LEIGH ACRES AND THE BONITA SPRINGS - ESTERO AREA.

mora / 03:47 We will see probably on some campuses a little bit of crowding. Using spaces that weren't traditionally used as classrooms in the past. 03:55

THE DISTRICT CAN BUILD NEW SCHOOLS OR PUT UP PORTABLE CLASSROOMS.

02:26:11 It's a stop gap for a temporary problem. Because portables were never intended for long term use. 02:26:16

DISTRICT LEADERS LIKE REGGIE SNELL SAYS BUILDING TWO NEW HIGH SCHOOLS MAKES THE MOST SENSE.

reggie / 02:23:27 We have the land. We own the plans for the high school prototypes. 02:23:31

EXCEPT THERE'S JUST ONE BIG PROBLEM.

02:23:45 All of the ingredients to make the cake are here except for the money. 02:23:50

TWO NEW HIGH SCHOOLS WILL COST ABOUT $110-MILLION DOLLARS.

RAISING THE STATE SALES TAX IN LEE COUNTY TO 6.5% IS ONE WAY TO PAY FOR IT.

02:29:39 With big companies like the Hertz Corp. Building here in South Lee county, that's attracting hundreds of new families here. The Chamber of Commerce in Bonita Springs says those families would likely be willing to pay for the new schools. 02:39:52

scott Duval/Bonita Chamber / 02:34:09 We're approaching 50k people here in Bonita. We have 1600 students at Estero High and they're kind of bursting at the seems up there. 02:34;14

WITH THE CLOCKING TICKING AND MORE STUDENTS ARRIVING TIME IS RUNNING OUT.

mark Mora / 06:17 I don't think we're approaching a crisis level on any of our buildings at the moment. 06:20 Return to index of stories...


LEE COUNTY NEEDS HIGH SCHOOLS-PLASMA


THE FOLKS IN CHARGE OF BUILDING THESE NEW SCHOOLS SAY IT'S GOING TO TAKE ABOUT TWO YEARS TO COMPLETE.

THEY SAY TO GET THE DOORS OPENED BY 2017 THEY NEED A COMMITMENT TO BUILD THEM BY THIS FEBRUARY.

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.

PASSING SHOWERS A.M. AND P.M.

The weather pattern this week has continued to bring an onshore wind to our part of Florida and our morning showers are becoming routine. The forecast calls for a few of the showers in the Gulf of Mexico to continue drifting toward the coastline this evening. Some showers will move briefly over the beaches and continue inland before raining out. Isolated thunderstorms will continue across inland area along the sea breeze boundary. Some areas of heavy rain and frequent lightning are possible through sunset. Temperatures will drop to the upper 70's by tomorrow morning and recover to the lower 90's by the end of the day on Friday. Morning showers and afternoon, inland, thunderstorms are likely again tomorrow.

The tropics continue to be very quiet and we are not tracking any developing storms in the Gulf, Caribbean or open waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Return to index of stories...
