6:18 pm
push in by monday, and you'll definitely feel the difference in the air for monday and even on into tuesday. so tonight lots of clouds around with the warmer weather pushing in, maybe some fog, and we have just a chance of showers towards morning. temps pretty much bottom out where they are now, rising into tomorrow. we have highs near 60 tomorrow, but it's kind of a wet day. rain heavy in the morning. we're talking about 1-2 inches of rain which is not really a bad thing since we were so dry last year, pretty dry so far this month. and then we'll clear it out. now, looked at tomorrow's high and then monday's high. we go down into the 30s, so the cold is back. on wednesday it looks like, christina, we are going to see our first chance of maybe a light snow accumulation, maybe just some flurries. >> samantha, thanks for the update. >> you're welcome. >> if you haven't got rid of your christmas tree yet, this weekend could be the perfect

6:24 pm
like these intended to educate americans. survive inevitable atomic destruction. >> perhaps nothing is more important than extra food and water. >> perhaps nothing now incites fear like the prospect of terrorism, a wave of attacks in 2015 dominating the political landscape. >> as groups like isil grew stronger amidst the chaos of war in iraq and then syria -- >> and providing fuel for some some on the campaign trail. >> i would bomb the [bleep] out of 'em.

6:30 pm
>> you're watching fox 5 news at 6. >> a former champion runner who ended up an addict is now focused on just putting one foot in front of the other. russ salzburg takes us through his long road to recovery. >> this is frank shiro at his home away from home, the track at sixth street and the fdr drive. now 63 years of age, frank is a masters champion in the 200, 400, 4x200 replay, 4 economy 400 replay and sprint medley, having owned at one time six world records. so as we're here running on the track now, what's going through your mind? >> russ, i just feel connected. i feel connected to a better part of myself. >> but despite that connection and all the success on the track, frank has suffered greatly from a disconnection off
6:31 pm
of his 51 years running, almost all have been spent battling alcohol and drug addiction. frankie, would you say running is a life preserver for you? >> russ, to be honest with you, i mean, running is really, really important to me. it's a thread that's been to the fabric of my entire life since i've been a kid. but my life support gips with aa -- begins with aa, because if i don't maintain sobriety, i don't get to run. >> so where did this lifelong battle with addiction begin? frank begrudgingly refers to his childhood in chatham, new jersey, when his 17-year-old brother nicholas, his protector, was killed in a car accident. frank was just 12. >> i think it had an effect on me. it definitely was a time in my family, you know, italian-american family, my mother wore black for ten years, and it was kind of a sad time in my house all the time. but i don't see that as a reason why i picked up drugs or alcohol. >> whatever the reason, frank
6:32 pm
but still went on to have a stellar track career at chatham high school, setting records and garnering some 25 scholarship offers. places like princeton wanted him, but frank didn't want them. instead of going to college, and do drugs. >> i'm from the school where you don't have any excuses. i know guys on the track team that i run for, you know, that were born in the ghetto without a mother, without a father, and they got their own ph.d.s, and they pursued an education, and they didn't let anything hold them back. so i believe there is no excuse. >> excuses or not, frank's decision would have devastating effects. after committing robberies to support his heroin habit, frank spent four months behind bars in 1977. when he got out, it was right back to heroin and an overdose. twice he was given last rites. but frank battled back, cleaned himself up, and amazingly,
6:33 pm
15 years of sobriety. >> frank is a very gifted person, he's a gifted athlete, and he's also has an amazing art of communicating and developing a rapport with other people. and those skills always enabled frank to just be a great counselor, and he's a natural born leader. >> but according to robert, the president and ceo of integrity house -- the rehab facility in newark visited recently by president obama in november -- frank's leadership was just not enough to keep him running in the right direction. >> frank continued to battle his own demons which resulted in frank going in and out of recovery over a period of years. >> i don't really think there's anything that can prevent you from going back. if you're going to pick it up, you're going to pick it up, and you have to suffer the consequences. i know guys who have wonderful family lives and incredible careers, and hollywood is calling them, and they can't step away from the drugs or
6:34 pm
>> talk about hollywood, frank's story reads like a hollywood script. one of triumph and despair. running taking him to the top, drugs and alcohol sending him crashing down to the bottom. fair to say running is a good addiction taking over for a bad addiction? >> well, i'm glad you asked that question, because to me, the definition of addiction is characterized by harmful consequences. you know, people say, oh, i have a chocolate addiction, but they don't go and stick up a bank to get a chocolate bar. the thing is, addiction has negative consequences. i have never had any negative consequences from my running. i never stole running shoes, committed a crime that enabled me to run. so calling it an addiction, i disagree with that. >> as for those negative consequences of addiction, frank suffered the worst this past june. because of a drug deal gone wrong and an ensuing fight,
6:35 pm
sentence in rikers island. you're in with killers and rapists and bad people, and they're offering you drugs for free, and you got the willpower at this judgeture in your life to -- juncture in your life to say no. explain that, because it's crazy to me. >> to me, it's not will power. i don't see it as will power. i think it's a matter of surrendering to your disease of addiction. >> he really went down. i mean, he's had some demons to struggle with and overcome, and he's been down and out. we were really worried about him because he was pretty down deep in the pit. >> it's a really miserable existence. i mean, you compromise your values, you compromise what you love to, you know? it could be your family,it could be your job, you know? you surrender all that stuff to keep using. it's a very unhappy existence.
6:36 pm
is out of the pit, but can he stay out? maybe, with a new understanding. >> here i was a world record holder, and, you know, i can't go a day without using, you know? and it creates this conflict in myself, you know, where i'm really unhappy, and it's almost like schizophrenic. you wonder who you are, am i the guy who set world records or am i the guy who's buying drugs now? who am i? i actually lose myself. >> for the time being though, frank appears to have found himself and with his running, is headed in the right direction. >> i do the maintenance that i have to do by attending my meetings, i go to after care, i see the psychiatrist. so i'm doing everything in the proper steps to not pick up a drink or a drug, and that's the path i'm on. recovery, i believe, is a path. it's not a destination. you know? it's not like you get to recovery. you travel the path of recovery, and i'm on path of recovery.

6:40 pm
according to tmz, playboy enterprises is looking to get one yard of $-- upyard of $200 million, and apparently the house is in horrible shape. if you buy the property, you are stuck with hugh hefner. apparently, one stipulationing involves giving the 89-year-old a life estate so he can live in the mansion until he dies. tonight we're starting a discussion about the n-word. you hear it in songs and movies, but is there ever a time when it's okay to say? our lisa evers will look into the topic on the first episode of street soldiers, a new show debuting tonight on fox 5. here's a preview. >> the n-word was in the title of jay-z and kanye west's hit song about their experiences in the paris. >> but it caused a backlash for gwyneth paltrow when she included the song title in a tweet and highlighted the confusion about who can use it.
6:41 pm
