direction, fairly significant frontal system here, too. we're seeing cooler temperatures behind it and tomorrow ahead of this front we'll warm up nicely. so all the area in the rain there is most of the northeast down through the mid-atlantic under the gun here with a slight risk of thunderstorms that could be severe. there's even an area tomorrow for most of northeastern sections of maryland up into eastern parts of pennsylvania, jersey and new york state that can actually have a moderate risk of severe storms. we don't see that very often this time of year. whenever we get what we call a second day moderate risk, our ears kind of perk up and we start looking at the weather maps. we'll keep a close eye on this for you tomorrow afternoon, full forecast, good stuff coming our way after these thunderstorms. a news alert in the district tonight where police are still looking for the suspect who walked into a church and robbed a man at gunpoint. the suspect was caught on video following the victim. fox 5's matt ackland spoke with
the reverend at the church who was there when it happened. >> reverend sarah beth goodwin says this is the first time something like this has happened in her church, a place known for peace and generosity. she was there as the crime was carried out. even a gun was pointed in her face. you'll remember this video was taken as the victim walked into the church saturday. the suspect comes in right behind him. police say once inside the victim was ordered to the ground, his iphone, cash and other personal property taken. we spoke to reverend goodwin earlier tonight about the robbery. she says she'll speak with her church community this sunday about it. >> we've been lucky. up till now we have not had any kind of an assault like this before. so we'll just talk about it honestly and we will probably be a little bit more vigilant in watching for each other. >> here is surveillance video of the man leaving st. stephen
church. he was wearing a mask most of the time. so police understand why it has been so difficult to identify the suspect. coming up at 11:00 we'll have more on reverend goodwin and why she doesn't want this crime to leave a lasting impression on her church. >> matt ackland, thank you. meanwhile prince george's county police made an arrest in the murder of a district woman. investigators charged joseph jones of capitol heights, maryland, with the murder of shavon phillips. her body was found stuffed in a duffel bag in a ft. washington creek last month. detectives say phillips and jones knew each other and jones drove phillips to a car auction in fredericksburg, virginia, july 30th, the day she disappeared. police say jones claims the two became separated driving back from fredericksbg and he didn't know her whereabouts. 22 years in prison, the sentence handed out to a former top democratic official in falls church, virginia. michael gardner was convicted in may of molesting two girls invited to his daughter's

strasburg's final line, three innings, six hits, two strikeouts and three outs, far from the way strasburg wanted to go out, but i caught up with danny espinosa before the game and he remains confident in the team's ability going without their ace. >> we've had to deal with injury all season and to do what we've done and put ourself in the position we have, i think that just shows how strong our team is. obviously stephenis an unbelievable ballplayer with unbelievable talent, but one guy won't bring the whole team down. obviously it's unfortunately and we wish he could be here the whole way, but we know we can battle through and we did it all year. so it's not going to hold us. >> true to danny espinosa's words the nats rallied down 6-2 at one point now tied up at since 6 in the bottom of the 8th. -- 6-6 in the bottom of the

candidate isis more likely to return us to full employment. this is a clear choice. the republican plan is to cut more taxes on upper-income... people and go back to deregulation. that's what got us in trouble in the first place. president obama has a plan to rebuild america from... the ground up, investing in innovation, education... and job training. it only works if there is a strong middle class. that's what happened when i was president. we need to keep going with his plan. president obama: i'm barack obama and... i approve this message. follow up on a story we brought you last month. a young couple from suburban chicago who once thought they'd never have children welcomed their first daughter into the
world. they did so with the help of the little girl's grandmother who carried the baby for them. fox 5's allison seymour has that story. >> reporter: this is elle cynthia jordan, the baby her parents still can't believe is finally here. >> we're doing good. besides a little lack of sleep, which we knew was coming, we couldn't be happier. it's literally a dream come true. we never thought we were going to be in this place. >> no. >> reporter: that's because emily had a radical hysterectomy more than two years ago after being diagnosed with cervical cancer. she lost a baby then, too but was able to keep her ovaries. so her mom, grandma, offered to carry a baby for them and very recently gave birth to baby elle. some wonder how a 53-year-old woman could make such a sacrifice or give such a gift. >> i feel like it's a gift to me. i got to give this.
i did. i know i gave a gift, but i also am getting so much in return from that that i don't think you can minimize the good that i'm getting out of this, too. >> watch mama feed you. >> i have this beautiful grandchild that will be in my life forever. that's really the bottom line and be in their lives. it's a beautiful thing. >> obviously we'll never be able to repay her, but one thing she asks is for to us raise the baby right and that's all she ever wants. so i think with emily being as great of a mom as she's going to be and me doing what i have to do, so i think it will be pretty easy for us. >> reporter: grandma couldn't agree more. >> when i watch both of them hold that baby and look into her face, it's just -- sorry, it's like everything i could have imagined wanting for them.
>> are you ready to wake up yet? >> like this is what this was all about for me to, give them that opportunity to fall madly in love in two seconds with someone and they've both done it. i see that love on their faces for elle. >> reporter: it's gone so well that she says she'd do it again. >> anything that i've gone through just makes it 100% worth it. i couldn't be happier. >> reporter: nor could emily and mike. >> just can't stop holding her, kissing her and telling her you love her. >> up. she's perfect. >> reporter: allison seymour, fox 5 news. a marriage proposal turned into a rescue mission in michigan. this detroit area couple was taking a canoe trip near lake huron last saturday when nathan bluestein proposed to his girl friend and she accepted. heavy waves started pushing them further from shore. they were unable to paddle back and were stranded on north island. they called 911.
police used gps to track them down. >> i think it's a good sign. i think it's a sign that together and with god that we'll get through anything and if this is the worst thing that's going to happen in our life in, our marriage, it's going to be awesome. our life will be awesome together. >> the couple plans to invite the two officers who rescued them to their wedding. it was an unusual call for help. montgomery county firefighters were sent to sugarloaf mountain vineyard this morning after a man was found unconscious in a bin. the bin is 10 feet deep where workers separate grapes from the vines. after 25 minutes firefighters managed to pull the man out and he was flown to baltimore trauma center for treatment of life threatening injuries. an investigation into what happened is now underway. some encouraging news about home sales. it's becoming a sellers market at least here in d.c. fewer homes are on the market. sales are up. means prices are going up as well. joan cromwell is a local real estate agent and says the d.c. market is generally doing very
well, especially compared with the rest of the nation. >> in washington d.c. we're not seeing what they're reporting nationwide. inventory is down significantly. d.c. inventory is down 36%. northern virginia, montgomery county is 30 and 28% respectively. >> with fewer homes on the market buyers can't be as choosey. that's helped drive prices up lately. while home sales are picking up jobs are still hard to find. the unemployment rate fell slightly last month from 8.3 to 8.1%. many analysts say the job numbers are disappointing, not what they expected. >> reporter: the august jobs report is out and there's little positive in it. here are the numbers. the labor department reports the economy added 96,000 jobs last month. that number is far less than the 125,000 analysts expected and mostly failed to keep pace with population growth. the unemployment rate did drop from 8.3% to 8.1%, but that's
deceiving. the labor department says it fell mostly because people dropped out of the workforce and gave up looking for a job. the government only counts those as unemployed if they are actively seeking work. the labor department revised june and july employment numbers lower with 41,000 fewer jobs created than first estimated. lukewarm reaction from the market with the dow up and down slightly at the opening bell, although the economy stopped shedding jobs, it has added only 139,000 a month since the beginning of the year, below last year's average of 153,000. the relative size of american workforce takes a hit. labor participation falling to 63.5%, the lowest in 31 years. the report could prompt the federal reserve to take new action to stimulate the economy when it meets next week in washington. this report comes out two months before election day and both sides will address it making their case for the white house. polls show the economy is still the no. 1 issue in this election and

another big story, some jurors are now speaking out a day after convicting drew peterson for murdering his ex- wife. the jurors say hearsay testimony was critical in their decision to convict peterson. fox's steve brown has details. >> reporter: a day after they found drew peterson guilty of first degree murder jurors held a press conference to talk about the case. 58-year-old peterson convicted of killing his third wife kathleen savio in 2004. >> when the deliberations began, we first talked about
what the doctors had to say and we've pretty much all agreed that it was a homicide. we did not think that the death was accidental. >> there was too many bruises and too many parts of the body. >> reporter: the jurors also spent a lot of time talking about hearsay evidence presented to them. hearsay is any information reported by a witness that is not based on direct knowledge. >> the hearsay testimony from stacy, that was the biggest part of. >> reporter: peterson, the former police officer, faces up to 60 years in prison. defense attorneys plan to appeal the conviction. >> believe me, there's several world class appellate lawyers just waiting to get their teeth into this caches. >> reporter: peterson was not charged in savio's death until his fourth wife vanished in 2007. 23-year-old stacy peterson's family say her case can now take center stage. drew peterson was never charged in her disappearance. >> they got this one down. they did a great job with it.

[ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approved this message. this is fox 5 news at 10:00. about 800 people crowded into an open air barn in loudoun county today to listen to a political pitch from ann romney, wife of republican presidential nominee mitt romney. the partisan crowd believes the economy will push voters to
fave the republican ticket in november. fox 5's john henrehan reports. >> reporter: it was billed as a women for mitt rally with a mostly female audience who gathered inside a roomy equestrian barn in loudoun county. voters here faved in obama in '08 but went solidly republican in subsequent elections. ann romney who has been involved with riding horses since her childhood and later used horses as therapy for her multiple sclerosis joked about the venue of the political rally. >> i should tell you that i feel right at home because i'm in a barn. so let's talk some horse sense. >> reporter: the wife of the gop nominee criticized the obama administration for its failure to fully revive the economy more quickly. >> guess what this economy has done to women? it's hit them harder than men, more women are unemployed now than men. >> reporter: ann romney implored the largely female audience to support her
husband's presidential bid. >> i will tell you he will not let you down. he will be there and he will not fail. [ cheering and applause ] >> reporter: the partisan crowd clearly loved ann romney's performance. >> she's awesome. she will be a wonderful first lady. she is a portrait of grace and strength and is just the kind of woman that we need in the white house and leading our nation. >> reporter: the people in this group with whom we spoke believe the state of the economy will convince voters to support the republican ticket. >> i think the economy has just gotten worse and worse over time and i think that, you know, obama made a lot of promises and he's broken a lot of hearts and i think it's time we turn things around. >> reporter: ann romney's remarks lasted only 10 minutes. she spent slightly longer working the crowd encouraging these women to volunteer to help the gop campaign over the next 60 days. in loudoun county, virginia,
john henrehan, fox 5 news. the presidential conventions are over and the race to november kicking into high gear. here's a look at some of the highlights from the past two weeks. >> no one could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years. >> it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over decades. >> now is the moment we can stand up and say i'm an american. i make my destiny. deserve better. my children deserve better. my family deserves better. my country deserves better. >> joined now by dr. allan lichtman, presidential historian. asking you to put on your bipartisan hat tonight and we'll start with the democratic national convention do. you think president obama's speech was able to bridge the enthusiasm gap? >> i'm not sure president obama's speech alone did that. it was a very good speech, but it was not a top obama speech.
to paraphrase shakespeare, it wasn't as deep as a well or wide as a church door, but it will, do but what i do think bridged the enthusiasm gap for democrats is the buildup of the three days. michelle obama was scintillating. bill clinton delivered what may have been the most effective convention address in the modern history of american politics and then barack obama capped it off with a very good speech. you could see the enthusiasm in that room and even before the polls registered the obama speech the gallup poll did show a bump for obama and did show him for the first time since the killing of osama bin laden his approval rating of 52%. >> i'm just curious how important as a historian overall are these conventions to future presidencies? they seem to be a blip and oftentimes a coronation for die hards in that particular party.
>> you see the water spiraling down in the bathtub. these conventions have spiraled down in importance. they used to nominate candidates. they don't. they used to have lively substantive debates over platform. they don't. they used to make rules. nobody cares about rules, so they're now simply three-day long infomercials and that's why you folks in the media cover them so lightly and why they don't produce the same kind of big bumps they once did. >> let's get to mitt romney and the republican national convention. you would know better than i, but how big of a gaffe was it that mitt romney didn't mention afghanistan or iraq or the wars in his acceptance speech? >> it's not a killer gaffe, but it's a serious gaffe. for decades republicans have had the advantage on foreign and defense policy. certainly that helped power bush to reelection in 2004. now ironically they've conceded that whole territory to the democrats and left barack obama
a hole a mile wide to drive his truck through in his disposition on foreign policy, which by the way, i thought was the strongest part of the speech. the domestic side was fairly empty, but the foreign policy side was more hard hitting and more specific. >> when you take a helicopter approach maybe lastly, you got two predominant themes, the republicans saying are you better off than four years ago and the democrats saying we need more time. which one is the stronger message of the two? which 1 do you think overall played out -- one do you think overall played out and got itself into the consciousness of the voters? >> if you look at the enthusiasm at the convention, clearly the democrats are more enthusiastic and the polls seem to show a bigger bump for the democrats, but elections are not decided by the economy alone despite all this conventional wisdom. the foreign policy issues matter. healthcare, medicare, the
deficit matters. the fact that the country is pretty tranquil matters. the third party candidates like gary johnson or virgil goode in virginia can matter. so while you're all fixated on the economy, it could be all these other issues that sneak in and decide this election. >> you i both are not alone in looking forward to the debates which will have a little bit of substance. thank you for coming in. making a hard right turn here, maybe you've tried a mint or peanut butter oreo, but you won't believe the new flavor coming out for halloween. >> wiebe can be good for your heart but only a certain -- wine can be good for your latter but only a certain type of wine. texas, it happened yesterday afternoon near a compressor station in allen about 230 miles southwest of houston. neighbors heard it. an energy company spokesman is saying there are no signs of vandalism in the pipe rupture.

four nfl players caught up in a scandal were released to play at least for now. the appeals panel ruled commissioner roger goodell overstepped his authority suspending the players for their roles in the bounty scandal. after the appeals panel ruled the league reinstated them. countdown to kickoff continues for the washington redskins. they leave for new orleans tomorrow afternoon in preparation for sun's regular season opener against the saints. -- sunday's regular season open against the saints. dave ross joins us now. >> practice is over for the week and one last night's sleep in the dmv and the boys in burgundy get on the charter flight for the big easy. yes, this might be the toughest assignment of all for robert griffin, iii and company.
why? being a rookie quarterback is tough enough, but rg3's debut may be as tough as it gets facing a hostile new orleans crowd. the redskins spent practice today inside the bubble to prepare for game conditions sunday at the superdome. they cranked up the noise level, had some music coming in and the skins have been pumping simulated fan noise into the bubble all week. home field advantage was huge for the saints last year going 9-0 at home. while the skins know it won't be easy they're not backing down. >> we've been playing like music and doing crowd noise and stuff like that. that's pretty hard. so i think we'll be there ready, but i've heard it gets really loud. i've never played there before, but that's what i'm anticipating. >> it's going to be crazy. obviously they have a lot of adversity throughout the offseason. so i know their fans will be behind them 100%. i played down there in '07, i believe, and it was loud. they won the championship and they're a great team. you got drew brees leading them. so the fans and the whole
community will be behind them. >> i talked to cedric griffin, one of the skins new cornerbacks. he told me while the crowd might be hostile, they're losing more sleep than facing drew brees than anybody sitting in the stands. seven-point underdogs according to the wise guys in vegas. you don't see this too often on maryland's eastern shore. police got calls about an alligator spotted in a respond in fruitland. they think it was someone's pet. police had to grab the gator with a rope attached to a stick. animal experts secured the jaws, tied it up and are trying to find him a home. >> some changes in the weather front, gary mcgrady. >> 1 more hot day and then -- one more hot day and then some real good stuff coming our way, good september weather. we can get excited about cooler definitely. it's been a nice evening, temperature stayed up, but once
the sun went down it felt really pleasant. see the jefferson off in the distance. let me show you in terms of what we're thinking here. i think we'll be in for more heat tomorrow probably about like today, okay, with temperatures mid- to upper 80s for highs it. really depends on when these strong and severe thunderstorms roll in tomorrow afternoon. sun looks dry. it does look much cooler. next week is shaping up to be very, very nice with temperatures actually in the 70s. here's the setup for tomorrow. we'll have the possibility of some strong storms ahead of this frontal system back to the west of us. the front is on the move and it will sweep through in the afternoon. as it comes through, big thunderstorms ahead of the front, but cooler and less humid air will settle in. it will be refreshing around here by sunday, sunday night and into monday morning talking about temperatures in the 50s. highs tomorrow out ahead of the front right up to about 88 degrees, some of you western,
northwestern neighborhoods will be a little cooler simply because you'll begin to build some showers and storms before you get up into the upper 80s, but here in the metro i think we're talking about upper 80s and nice and cool sunday, temperature only up to 80 degrees. it may have to struggle to get up to 80 degrees. right now we've settled back to 79 in town, gaithersburg 75, dulles 78 and manassas already falling to 73 degrees. ahead of the front look at all the thunderstorms back to the west of us. we are real nice here. we had a couple isolated thunderstorms early, but those have since dissipated. all this activity out ahead of this front is a significant front, too, temperatures really dropping off behind it and look how quickly it clears behind the front. most of this has had a history this evening of being severe, very, very strong thunderstorms here, pay lot of hail and heavy wind -- a lot of hail and heavy wind ahead of this front. we watch this very closely.
futurecast has some clouds in here, possibly a spotty shower off the eastern shore, the bay and the beaches. in town we should be dry, break into sunshine tomorrow afternoon. this is 4:00 and notice showers, thunderstorms start moving across. we are outlooked tomorrow afternoon for the possibility of this to be severe, okay. so we'll be watching this very closely. it will start moving into i-90 five about 4:00 or 5:00 -- i-95 about 4:00 or 5:00. you see more oranges and reds up through pennsylvania into maryland. it is forecast to be a little stronger to the north. i still think some of that could reach the city and be severe, primary threat tomorrow wind and hail farther to the north and northeast thinking there could be a few isolated tornadoes, but i don't think that will necessarily translate down here to wash and into 7 vamp once the front gets --
washington and into virginia. once the front gets through we clear out nicely and sun afternoon we're much cooler, a -- sunday afternoon we're much cooler, a couple clouds building in the afternoon. 72 in town. in the suburbs we fall to the 60s and tomorrow again ahead of the front and ahead of the thunderstorms temperatures will warm to the upper 80s and again those thunderstorms a good possibility of being strong to severe. your accuweather seven-day forecast, tomorrow the last day of heat and then it really does cool down. monday, tuesday, wednesday look darn near perfect. >> yeah. i'll say. >> not that sunday is all that bad, but we'll have a few clouds and be a bit breezy. this nice weather gets in and looks like it will stick around quite a while. >> thank you. prince harry third in line to the british throne is back on the front lines. the prince is returning to afghanistan for a four-month combat tour. the move comes days after making headlines around the world for some very embarrassing photos in vegas.
