the women and men involved to rescue these people from the water was extraordinary. >> dan fly and his wife were in one of the vehicles. >> when i felt the water rushing in and i kind of came back to situational awareness and looking around, when you looked at the carnage of the metal and stuff around you, i assumed it was it at that point. there was no hope. that's what i was thinking, but here i stand. >> reporter: his wife and the other rescued man remain hospitalized with hypothermia. it is the most significant bridge failure since the 2007 minneapolis bridge collapse that left 13 people dead and dozens injured. snarling traffic for months. meanwhile, officials in washington are looking in to why the bridge collapsed, saying it could be months before it's fixed. the bridge behind me is part of interstate 5, the main road connecting the u.s. and canada and washington's governor warns this morning the delays and

churches are threatening to stop sponsoring packs and troops. back to you. >> thank you, craig melvin. meantime president obama is set to address the u.s. naval academy's graduation today and expected to address the same themes we heard him talking about yesterday, drones and these closing of guantanamo among other things. let's get to peter alexander with more. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. this was a significant speech. the president is shifting his case away from what he described as a boundless, global war on terror and pushing for less secretive and more restrained counterterrorism policy. >> this war, like all wars, must end. >> reporter: the president's focus, two key issues revealing clearer, more narrow guidelines for deadly drone strikes. arguing they are legal, effective and will continue. while also raising the standard for their use. >> before any strike is taken,
there must be near certainty that no civilians will be killed or injured. the highest standard we can set. >> reporter: on the prison camp in guantanamo bay, a renewed pledge to shut it down. the president announcing an end to the ban on transferring detainees back to yeming and calling for some to be moved to prisons on american soil and tried in civilian courts. >> the decisions that we are making now will define the type of nation and world that we leave to our children. >> reporter: many republicans remain dissatisfied. >> what would i have the united states of america do, lead, l d l-e-a l-e-a-d, the president does not lead. >> at one time the president was repeatedly interrupted and briefly left speechless by an anti-war activist. >> you are commander in chief. you can close guantanamo today. can you take the drones out of the hands of the cia? i love my country. i love the rule of law.

70 degrees right here in san jose. we will hit 61 in san francisco. getting into your memorial day weekend, we have shores on the way late monday into tuesday. of what lies ahead. superstorm sandy did about $40 billion worth of damage. recovery is still under way. we'll talk to new jersey's governor chris christie about that in a moment but first a look back at the last seven months. it was a storm for the record books. sandy killed dozens, forced thousands to flee and wrecked nearly 350,000 homes along the jersey shore alone. while residents are fiercely determined to restore the shore the recovery has seen challenges. governor chris christie recently faced the frustration. >> i lost a house in northern beach. we feel like the stepchild. look at it over there. have you seen it? >> i've seen it. >> it's the same as six months ago. >> the problem is everyone has to decide what they're going to do with their own homes. i can't decide and when they're
going to knock them down and try to rebuild. >> reporter: some homeowners say insurance money has been slow to arrive and the remapping of the flood zones may discourage rebuilding but above all this area recognizes the need to restart its economic engine. the state features more than 130 miles of majestic coastline. last year tourism brought in $19 billion. >> people know the boardwalk is back, it will be back here memorial day weekend. >> reporter: seaside heights mayor says it's more than just business. >> we're putting it back together for all the people who have been here and have the memories of coming here and all of the new memories that will be formed. >> reporter: new memories formed as the boardwalks return, standing as a symbol of hope for the jersey shore and a promise for the future. chris christie is the governor of the state of new jersey, governor it's always good to
have you. >> thanks for coming to jersey. >> scale of one to ten where does the recovery stand right now? >> well it's an eight in some places and a four in others. it depends. here on the boardwalk people will see it as about an eight out of ten when they start coming here in june but for a lot of the home observers in the state it will take the better part of the next year to get them back. >> was that the strategy, get the tourism money back flowing in for the state's coffers? >> no, i think it was the easiest one first. homeowne homeowners, people have to figure out if they want to build and how much they want to elevate. here it's a set thing. >> so much coverage of the storm, so much coverage of the aftermath, so much coverage of the damage. are you worried, when you think of how vital tourism money is to this state and your economy, are you worried the tourists will have heard about all of that and
go elsewhere? >> yes, we are and that's why we're doing things like this, we have a $25 million advertising and marketing plan going on. 80% of the jersey shore you won't notice any difference from last summer. where we're standing now there's differences. >> you saw what happened down in oklahoma on monday that devastating tornado that damaged so many homes. you have already come out and said you will support any amount of federal aid that the president decides is necessary to help those people recover. would the fiscally conservative chris christie make that comment had he not go through superstorm san sandy? >> i did. i think emergencies are a totally different thing. americans help other americans when we're in trouble and that's always been what this country has been about and matt, you know, we never support irresponsible spending. that's why i said everything that's necessary to help them absolutely and we should be doing it quickly. >> so much was made of the
president visiting you after the storm, coming back on tuesday to look at the recovery and where it stands. i know that's good for the state of new jersey but do you ever worry another visit and more images of you two walking along the boardwalk will cook your personal political goose? >> no, because i think what people in my state want more than anything else is for me to do my job and the. the wants to come back here and see the progress and look at it himself, i never worry about that. i'm doing my job. >> you're not a guy worried about 2016 and what you may or may not do. i want to think if he wants to see recovery tweet him photos. >> bottom line you can't experience it unless you're here and see for yourself and he's the president of the united states, if he wants to come and see the people of new jersey, i'm the governor and i'll be here to welcome him. >> the national hurricane center released its outlook for this summer's hurricane season forecasting an extremely active season with three to six major storms of at least category 3 along this area.
how worried are you about that as a governor of a state that has so much exposed shoreline. >> of course you're always worried. we gave at the office last year. i think the hurricanes will bypass us but we'll be ready as we were last year but of course we're concerned. >> earlier this week you said you don't think there's been any proof that sandy was caused by climate change. several experts said the destruction from sandy was probably more severe because of elements of climate change including rising sea levels. are you not willing to say that? >> no, i'm not. first of all, this is their business. they study it and they say probably, maybe. all i said was i'm not shown any definitive proof of what caused it. this is distraction. i have a place to rebuild and people want to talk to me about esoteric theories. no i'm not going to buy things
about it, especially when they won't definitively say anything and it's their business. >> as you stand with me now you're a little bit smaller than you were the last time we stood together. much talked about surgery for weight loss, how are you doing? >> i feel good, things are going well. i think there's a lot of attention, more than i would have imagined but the -- >> you really didn't think you'd get that attention. >> i misevaluated that part of it but at the end it's nice because i talk to people they ask how am i feeling. most of it is born out of concern for me and that's great. >> do you hope to inspire others, do you hope there will be a christie effect down the road. no, i hope there's a christie effect for christie and if stuff happens for other folks that's great. i'm doing it for mary pat, for my kids and myself to be better and healthier. if it inspires other people great for them but that's not

>> i'm a third generation contractor, my grandfather started in 1922, my father followed. i've been at it for 45 years. never thought i'd see some of the things that i did 20 years ago resurface and have to be put back together but i'm trying to make these houses look just the way they did prior to the storm, if not a little better. >> it's a lot more than a house. it's our history. 35 years ago we moved in, and it was just horribly run down and we spent our life putting it back together and we made it into our home. so it was very devastating when the storm came and took it all out. i woke up one morning and said, i am going to focus not on what's happened, but on where we're going. we just got back two days ago, so we're just going to move forward now.
>> something magical about sand. it is a temporary nature that puts things in perspective. when a sand castle or sand sculpture falls down, you get up, brush yourself off, take a deep breath and get back to work. >> we're making new memories. i want kids to come here. i want them to walk away like they're a big winner. when i see them walking around with arms full of things, that means i've done my job. >> why do i love the place? it's the people. they're not easily swayed. >> i see myself being here for the rest of my life. it's in your blood. >> i am. >> i am. >> i am. >> i am the jersey shore. >> yes,y shore. >> ye >> yes,y shore. >> yes,y shore. >> i am the jersey shore. >> and we want to give a special thanks to the photographer who took those photos. come up a concert from the band fun but first this is "today" on nbc.

a great place and people from the tri-state area have a vacation spot again. >> we were up in the chopper right after it happened. >> it's remarkable. you think back to that day looking from up above i thought the recovery it seemed absolutely daunting and i think to everybody else whose experiences, victims of this you think how could you possibly have these businesses open and back in business seven months later but look what's happening here. it is the story of revitalization, the story of overcoming all and everything is on its way back. there are some areas still suffering and it will be a long hall, rockaways a while, monday toe lo mantoloking. >> we went up and down asbury park, point pleasant, atlantic city and seaside heights and the destruction was not only just the infrastructure, it changed the topography of the shoreline of new jersey.
it is unprecedented and to see what they've done is pretty amazing and i think it's emblematic for the other shoreline communities of connecticut, of delaware, of maryland, the carolinas, new york, again, they're all working hard to bring this back, some are having a little more success than others but everybody wants this to come back. they're not going to rest until it's done but the national hurricane center just out with the forecast for 2013. >> not looking good? >> it is very active. normal number of named storms 11, they're predicting anywhere from 13 to 20. 11 named hurricanes and of those three to six could be major hurricanes. that doesn't mean they'll all make landfall but you just need one. >> coming down here, as somebody who grew up in no, jerth jersey drive down, springsteen playing,

>> reporter: a hung jury. it was too much for victim travis alexander's family, arias herself appeared stunned, even judge sherry stevens seemed to need a moment to process what happened. >> this was not your typical trial. you were asked to perform very difficult responsibilities. >> now the focus turns to the difficulty of choosing a new jury to sentence arias. >> how do you get a jury of your peers who wasn't told that for all these five months and every day on the front page of the paper was jodi arias. >> reporter: and the headlines won't be going away any time soon, a tough reality for alexander's loved ones. >> losing him was tough the first time. going through this all over again has been incredibly challenging. >> reporter: and if you were wondering why jodi arias' family was not in the courtroom, we know why thanks to an exclusive statement from her mother, sandy, she tells us "i am very upset that we were not called to
be there. the judge shouldn't have gone forward without jodi's family present. this has taken a toll on our family emotionally and financially. we have stood by jodi throughout the trial and we will continue to stand by her." >> thank you for that report. and check out this move by a bird that got too close to the action during practice for this week's monaco grand prix auto race. the dove back flipping out of the way and surrendering in this game of chicken. it's 9:07, back to willie, natalie and al in seaside heights and you're getting me so excited for summer. >> that's the idea, wanting to get everybody worked up about it. even though it's shaky in the northeast a low pressure system developing off the shore. the good news is it will start clearly from south to north as we go through the weekend,
although we are going to be looking at cooler than usual temperatures through the memorial day weekend, today temperatures upper 40s to the low 50s to maybe the low 60s and then for saturday cooling down even more, once that front moves through, temperatures will only be basically upper 40s to the low 50s. that's what's going on in the 9:08. happy friday to you. i'm meteorologist christina loren. taking a live look here. this is san bruno. beautiful start to the day. a little cold out there, 40s and 50s on the map. we're headed towards the 70s and a warmer day to finish up. 74 in livermore, 71 in fremont and 61 in san francisco. we've got rain in the forecast. over the course of your three-day weekend but it doesn't arrive until late monday into tuesday, then we'll start to warm you up as we head through thursday of next week. hope you have a fantastic and safe weekend. s your latest weather. al, as you can see we have some very artistic but also enterprising young folks who call themselves the shell kids.

artwork. >> and dad, something like 5,000 bucks they've raised designing and painting and selling the shells? >> we have different levels of sponsorship. the big cahuna is $5,000 and the lowest is $25. may 15th they gave a check to the city for $5,000 and they're all big cahunas. >> kevin i'm looking at your shell there. >> my attempt at the ocean. what do you think? >> pretty. >> really nice. >> they're outdoing me. i'll stick to the guitar. >> you've got a north american tour coming up. >> we do. >> also wrapping up your series on e!. >> very exciting time, thank you. we had the season finale this sunday and we're going on the road july 10th. of course we're coming to new jersey it's our home state. this is a big deal for us. >> what does it mean for you to be back here as a guy who grew
up in north jersey to see the boardwalk six, seven months later essentially repaired. >> we lost power for two weeks but nothing like down here. it's nice seeing this, everyone to be a part of it is really great. >> we appreciate you being with us. hannah, matt, thank you. congratulations. >> keep painting the big cahunas. >> we bring in nbc's katy tur and you're going to talk about the ubiquitous flying planes with the banner. >> the banner planes go back and forth, advertise everything from verizon cell phone service to lobster specials and if you've seen them you probably wonder how in the world they pick those banners up. it's a lot cooler than you could possibly imagine. it's not the waves in the ocean or the crowds at the beach. along the jersey shore, summer
isn't really here until you see this. >> if i don't see them, i say something's missing. >> it's the way of life. >> reporter: loud, low tech and effective. banner planes are a sure summer staple. >> we've had restaurants where we run a lobster special and they tell us to stop flying because they're sold out already. >> reporter: matt applegate owns aerial signs north, he's been flying the piper cubs since he was 13. mesmerized by what was once his grandfather's business. >> the banner part, the way we come in, it's like you almost shouldn't be allowed to do this. it's so much fun. we're coming in with grapple and hook and diving down and grabbing a loop and a rope six feet high off the ground. >> reporter: first they hook up the letters. >> you got it, look at that. >> reporter: they unfurl the whole sign in the field and finally the tricky part. it's a delicate process. he has to come down, not hit the
ground, pick up the yellow rope between the two blue sticks, essentially an upside down game of limbo, watch. the method hasn't really changed in 50 years and it's maybe even the only one that doesn't seem like it will ever need to. >> we have a captive audience, they're relaxed, enjoying, happy, the best time to get into someone's mind. >> reporter: now that we have you captive and relaxed how about this for a memorial day welcome. it was quite a banner. like everybody else around here they sustained some damage during the storm but like everyone else they picked themselves up, brushed themselves off and believe this will be the best summer ever. >> now i won't take them for granted. >> great way to learn about drink specials they're always up on the banner planes. katy, thank you so much. coming up next, willie will speak with the first lady of new
jersey, mary pat christie, right after this.

husband called me three days after the storm and said we have to do this and you're in charge. here's the name of a lawyer and they pretty much hung up the phone. >> you have bono on board, bruce, bon jovi, kevin jonas. >> all great americans on my honorary board, great new jerseyians and we really are working hard to keep raising money. >> are you surprised, mrs. christie, of what this boardwalk looks today. i am. having been here in the days after the storm your husband came out in his own way and said we'll be back by memorial day. i'm not sure a lot of us believed him. did you at the time? >> i'm generally thought of as the optimistic one in the family and i really knew with the hard work and great laborers we have in new jersey that we would get it done. >> a lot of people are still hurting. we want to celebrate seaside and the boardwalk and a lot is back but if you go back a few blocks a lot of people are having trouble getting their insurance claims through. what do you and the governor say to those people? >> that's one of the things we're working on is the
hurricane relief fund so we are raising money for financial and legal services to help people, for mental health services and for what we call gap funding so when people get their insurance they still have a lot of money they need to finally rebuild their homes so we're trying to show them that we're going to be here at the fund until it's all finished. >> in the midst of all this recovery your husband went through and quietly and tried to privately have lap band surgery. >> right. >> said he did it for you and your four children. what were those private discussions like at home? >> it's really something we've been struggling with for years and i this i that when the governor finally decided to do that, we were all really supportive and we're just happy that he has a lot of hope about the future in that regard. >> is it something you'd encouraged him to do previously? >> actually it's something i listened to and we talked about. i always am encouraging him in terms of what he wants to do but a lot of back and forth. >> i have to ask you, president
obama is going to be here on tuesday walking the boards with governor krooizie. christie. >> yes. >> a lot of people in this country would like to see your husband succeed president obama. i don't think i'll get to you make an announcement with me today. are those discussions hypothetical what it would be like for your family if he launched a presidential campaign? >> we have discussions like everybody does about what the future holds so we know what the opportunities could be and i think that after we tackle 2013 and our re-election, we'll think about what the future holds. >> do you think he'd make a good president? >> absolutely. i do. >> i bet you do. mary pat christie thank you so much. >> thank you. >> and congratulations on the new jersey fund. >> appreciate it. coming up a performance from multiplatinum artist fun, back with another song. first these messages. ♪

suburbanjungle.com. wasn't that polite of me? >> you're perfect, very polite. >> you know the story i did, a book about finding for 100 children up here on the upper east side in new york and out of 100 children, one child said thank you. that, that is unbelievable. i was stunned. >> well that has to do with modeling and it also has to do with expectations. i think that if children see their parents be kind and be gracious, they're much more likely to take that on. and also if they're reminded when they're not, without being, without admonishing them, kind of tell them, when you get something or someone does something for you, you say thank you. >> you used to be able to protect your kids from certain things. it seems like here, if you turn a commercial on or any kind of tv show, there's very little family programming or you see a big ad when you're walking down the street and your child asks a question, they're being inundated from everywhere, aren't they?
>> they really are. and the thing that kills me is you can't unsee something. you're explaining things that you never thought you'd be explaining to you know kids at the ages that they're at. >> how old are you kids? >> mine are eight and 11. >> are you running into that? >> that is prime time for that. >> it really will is. >> every kid wants to be with the older kids who are hipper. every little girl wants to pull her skirt up a little higher because the bigger girls are doing that and wear makeup and all that stuff. but it's beyond that stuff that we all grew up with. >> it's beyond sexualization of our children, isn't it? >> there's absolutely a sexualization of our children. and there's a sexualization of our society. i think if the parents are calmer and know where they are and know what's important to them, then no matter what they see or whatever comes flying at them, they'll be able to have a conversation, without taking it to the limit. >> let's play a little game, we're going to give you something that let's say your children saw this image and how you would explain this to them. let's start off with the naked cow kiloliter girl.
it's something that happens to be in new york city. you're wandering by and there happens to be a naked cowboy. if your child walks by and says, mommy, what's the right thing to say in this situation? >> i think the first thing i would say is that's how you catch a cold. and then, from there, i think it's just you know, this is someone trying to get attention in all the wrong ways. and at the ages that my kids are at, you can say that's what crazy looks like and you don't need to go down that road to get attenti attention, they're giving it to her for the wrong reasons. >> i think that's really wonderful. i think one of the things that jenny is pointing out, is number one you can use humor. which gives awe moment to catch your own breath and see where you want to go. and the other thing is let's put it in the context of our family. that's not the way you want to get attention, there are other ways we want to pay attention to each other. >> here's something that was on betty white's "off their rockers" that kind of seems like a family show. let's listen and see how you would react.
>> i'm wonderful word, a sexy word, orgasm. if you had to describe that moment, how would you describe that moment? i've got my notes. >> i'm speechless. >> okay. so the big o. you hear that. >> say poughkeepsie. they won't understand what you mean. >> i say one of the things, if you can kind of deflect or can you say, you know, this is really something that we're going to talk about at another time, but basically what it is, is -- depending on the age of the child. you don't have to describe an orgasm to a 4-year-old. >> you hear a word like that. >> and so now, children sitting at home are hearing it from us as well. >> we just said it again. >> how about, we say right and wrong? it's kind of simple. >> well i think that's a very important thing to do. but you have to know what's right and wrong within yourself. and if you see that all of this is on the media all the time then your feeling is i have to kind of get right in there and say you know what, that's more
adult. >> we don't teach the basics, say please, say thank you, that's wrong, that's not nice. say i'm sorry. we don't, we don't and it's all your fault. >> i want to thank you. and bless you and thank you. >> all right. come on, get happy. >> our girl sara has the hottest free apps, to make traveling this weekend a whole lot easier. ♪ ♪

the middle and dip it, if you like. >> thank you. honey. >> let's move on to this. >> i've got my steak cooking here i'm going to flip it over. >> that's good. >> that is delicious. >> this is a cooked bauer cue sauce, sweet and sour, we start out with pineapple juice and some water. i put some honey. this one has ketchup like a traditional barbeque sauce has and wostershire. and this has the red wine vinegar and the jalapeno. >> again, right? >> so again, the sweet and sour sauce that cooks for about 10, 15 minutes, reduces by half. once it's done, i take the jalapeno out if you don't want it too spicy. puree it and you have it ready to go like this. >> you purree it then? >> here's my sweet and sour
barbeque sauce. >> what are you putting it on? >> once the steak is cooked five to six minutes on each side. we put it on like this. let it glaze and it gets this carmelized, cut it. >> this looks delicious. >> i'm going to serve it with this panzanella salad. a salad to keep you slim in the summer. >> thank you very much. happy anniversary, next week, chloe kardashian. and nick cannon from "america's got talent." and undergarment to keep you cool for the summer. good-bye, people, good-bye! >> have a great weekend, everybody!
