tv Good Day Tampa Bay 7AM FOX October 26, 2016 7:00am-8:00am EDT
amendment 1 protects consumers from scams, promotes safe solar, and is endorsed by florida's firefighters. so, why are out-of-state billionaires attacking it? because amendment 1 stops their subsidies. amendment 1 ensures that if you don't choose solar, you don't have to pay for those who do. amendment 1 blocks special subsidies for special interests. it's solar done right.
>>dave: good morning. at 7:15, look at these temperatures, low to mid 60s and just about everybody warmer than yesterday at this time. we showed you how beautiful it is with the cameras and st. petersburg is at 70. even crystal river, crystal river, which was in the 40s yesterday is in the lower 60s right now. inverness, weeki wachee, just a
sarasota and mid 60s in polk county going all the way down into highlands county. look at the -- wait a minute. that is wrong. it is not 63 degrees warmer in wesley chapel. but look. let's look at these numbers. brooksville to crystal river, eight to 11 degrees warmer than it was yesterday at this time. seven degrees warmer in leesburg so you with the northeast wind, keeping it warm for us and that warm northeast wind, which by the way will be a bit breezy overall today is going to help to bring us back up, i'm thinking maybe some spots in the mid 80s for the later today. just a couple of minor differences from yesterday. one, it will be breezier than it was in the northeast winds, maybe 15 to 20 miles per hour at times and number two, we're going to get more sunshine.
cloud cover over south florida. yet in central florida, we have beautiful sunshine to start things off. if you rewind to yesterday, we had all that cloud cover around so today, more sunshine, brisk little northeast winds. together that's going to bring us in the mid 80s. we'll post a high around 84 degrees for a temperature later today. by the way, we're so close to the sunrise at 7:30. i don't know why i looked a watch on and i don't. low temperature around 67 degrees. a beautiful sunrise is going to be at 6:50. clouds and sunshine, more warmth tomorrow with your high temperature around 85 degrees. boaters, please be careful because we do have small craft advisories for today and i think they're going to extend into tomorrow as well.
temperature has dipped back to 74 degrees. a high tide at 12:22 and the next seven days, no significant rain and here's the thing i'm going to tell you. we don't have any like oppressive humidity as well. it's really steady as she goes, all the way through halloween with highs in the mid 80s and lows in the mid to upper 60s. >>vanessa: all right. thanks. and we're still watching u.s. 19 south of tarpon avenue at that had that crash still working. you see sky fox showing delays through the area. same lane blocks as before. and i'm seeing some movement. actually starting to see the center and right lanes picking up. i wonder if they've cleared it out. that could be good news. i'm going to double check and make sure i'm seeing this correctly as we scan the area. yeah. i think that's clear. that's good news for folks heading out the door. looks like we might have some lingering delays in the area.
you're going to be leaving in a couple of minutes. that's 19 northbound near tarpon. we'll check out the major roadways. usual congestion seen here, southbound 275 coming into the interchange. westbound i-4 also looks pretty normal this time of morning. 14 minutes from branch forbes to 75 and then some moderate congestion we're seeing here. southbound on 75, plan for about 13 minutes spent driving between bruce b downs and i-4. >>laura: new this morning, a warning about that halloween makeup that kids wear as part of their costume. >>russell: that makeup could contain heavy metals. this is according to a recent study of 48 different types of makeup done by the breast cancer fund. researchers analyzed all the makeup, specifically marketed toward kids. of the 48 types of makeup, the group found at least one toxic heavy metal and nearly half of them. nine samples found lead. even a small amount of lead
study also found the darker the pigment of makeup, the higher the level of the lead. here's the scary thing. parents will have no idea whether the makeup they're putting on the child contains heavy metals because they're not required to be listed on the labels. they suggest leaving the makeup off or using the lightest possible colors. so if your kid has not picked a halloween costume yet, time is running >>laura: depends on how d.i.y. you are but here are some of our favorites. dress your little ones as a bunch of grapes. purple balloons and add some leaves on their hoody to complete the look and hope for the best. >>russell: and how about making your kid a human emoji? make a face on it and any emoji face of their choosing. this is easy. you and your kids can do it together. >>laura: and then this may take
look at that. >>laura: you transform a plastic umbrella into a jellyfish costume. you glue ribbon on the edge. there you go. you're a jellyfish. >>russell: learning from someone else's mistake. coming up, the celebrity in trouble for taking a selfie while voting. >>laura: and now coming to america, the foreign prince who just bought a house here. grew up. but first, we have charley belcher. good morning. >>charley: good day to you. visiting a very wonderful place this morning called the mcdonald training center. they give adults with disabilities life skills to work in the private sector and become a productive member of society. maybe folks who otherwise would have been looked over. they've been putting together sun passes here since 2007.
here at the mcdonald training center. today they will package their 10 millionth. that's quite a celebration. 10 millionth sun passes put together right here at the mcdonald training center. we're helping them celebrate as folks start getting to wshg right now. stick around. le ?? halloween excitement is back at dunkin' with halloween donuts and munchkins. drizzled, decorated, and all dressed up for the season, pick up a box and share the fun. america runs on dunkin'. port tampa bay has now become florida's largest and most pick up a box and share the fun. diversified. which helps explain why it is one of dana young's top priorities. generating over 15 billion for the regional economy, and 80 thousand local jobs.
((laura- welcome back. the time is 7:--. there's a manhunt this morning for a very dangerous man.(russell) >>lindsay: >>laura: there is a manhunt for a dangerous man. >>russell: he's accused of killing six, including two police officers and sexually abusing a teenage girl. >> >>reporter: manhunt is underway in oklahoma for a suspect of going on a shooting spree. michael vance, junior allegedly shot and killed his aunt and uncle, ronnie and kay wilkson in luther and opened fire at a nearby town with an ak47. >> i'm surprised they all didn't die. >> the officers responded to the scene before vance allegedly shot them.
>> kind of makes your heart sink. dispatch was calling me and that's the first thing, man, you need to get to the location that it was at. >> vance is believed to have injured a man and a woman in carjackings on monday. he may also be responsible for the shooting of a truck driver monday night as he was trying to get a ride. >> i ran around there and i said, what's wrong? i think somebody shot me. get me some help. >> oklahoma residents are preparing h to find a place to sleep. >> our gates are locked, our doors are locked and everybody is just locked and loaded, ready in case we need to protect our family. >> authorities are asking people not to approach vance if they see him as he's armed and dangerous. >> i wouldn't want people to panic or anything else but i do think it's important to just be aware of what's going on around
earlier this year along with crimes dating back to 1999. >>laura: a tiger trainer in pensacola is fortunate to be alive this morning. this video shows a bengal tire pinning her to the ground during a show in front of children. the kids went there on a field trip yesterday. fortunately, that trainer will be okay. only a few cuts and bruises. and she does not think that the tiger meant her any harm since he didn't bite her. he might have thought playing. >>russell: prince albert, ii of monaco, makes a special trip to east falls, pennsylvania. just bought the house that his mom grew up in. that was grace kelly. it's also where the oscar winning actress accepted a wedding proposal from the prince's father. he spent an hour touring the property, inspecting the house. paid $754,000. it's unclear what he plans to do
>>dave: indeed. while the sun is still not up yet, it's going to be a gorgeous start to the day. 64 degrees. tampa net cam showing you that picture. east-northeast winds. 62 from the brookdale bayshore camera and these temps are going to warm back into the mid 80s. in fact, with this brisk northeast wind today and more sunshine, we'll go back up to about 84 degrees for a high today and then friday. >>vanessa: thanks. 7:28. and here along u.s. 301 we're seeing some slowdowns in the northwest direction. crash reported with the left lane blked in that northbound direction. you can see some delays from that intersection up towards the area of 60. make sure you're planning a few extra minutes here. we'll check out the howard frankland bridge. this is north of fourth street north so closer to the pinellas side. only taking eight minutes to cross the water here, so enjoy.
robert kearney: i fought for my country in kosovo
and iraq, and i've been a republican all my life. but i'm the father of three girls. i can't stand hearing donald trump call women pigs, dogs, and bimbos...and i sure don't want my daughters hearing it. i want my girls to grow up proud and strong, in a nation where they're valued and respected. donald trump's america is not the country i fought for. so, i'm voting for hillary clinton. hillary clinton:
when powerful people need someone to do their dirty work, they hire bob buesing. how far will he go? buesing fought to foreclose assisted-living retirement homes, threatening local seniors with homelessness. then, buesing defended wells fargo against charges of helping a ponzi-schemer swindle millions. buesing's firm was even accused of overbilling local schools , running fees up to seventy thousand dollars. now, buesing's running for senate.
you love all-day breakfast. but you don't love that you can't get all your favorites. but now you can get more of what you love. so you can find something else to not love. like hearing the sound of your own voice. (softly) like hearing the sound of your own voice. get more choices you love, now with all day breakfast. ((laura- welcome back to good day tampa bay. >>laura: welcome back. the time is 7:32 and election day is right around the corner. 13 days away. >>russell: a lot at stake here in florida. 29 electoral votes in this presidential election. hillary clinton is coming back to florida today. tampa and ken is at curtis hixon where she's going to be this
>>reporter: we're all set for her arrival. you can see behind me the fence is up to keep the crowds under control. beyond that, you see the stage. she's going to take the stage mid-afternoon or so and her message to people of tampa and the bay area is going to be, vote early, don't delay. well, the city of tampa has a message as well. and that is, if you don't have to come downtown, you might as well just skip it. between twiggs and cass is going to be closed from 12:30 arrive at 2:45 or so. parking is going to be an issue. the city says spots in the garage are going to be scarce so here are alternatives. you can park on the south regional garage or river gate tower. if you park in the power, you're probably going to have to enter through the westbound twigg street entrance. hopefully this is going to be cleared up by rush hour. i can tell you that the same thing is going to all around the country. i checked mrs. clinton's
campaign stops just today. she's going to be on the campaign trail. not surprisingly, her husband bill and chelsea as well. tomorrow they join forces with the white house. michelle obama is going to be with mrs. clinton in south carolina. what you see here, secret service, that type of thing. it's not only today but up until the election which is only 13 days away. amazing. we're so they're going to be pushing very, very hard. >>russell: florida is a big deal. see you later. thanks. >>laura: domestic violence has cost josh brown his job. giants cut him yesterday. they say they could not continue to tolerate this type of behavior. team hopes he dedicates himself to becoming a better person and father. he admits to abusing his ex-wife
kill her. he sent out a statement that says in the the coming days and weeks, i plan on telling more of the pain i had caused and the measures taken to get help so that i may be the voice of change and not a statistic. if another team wants to pick him up, he'll probably have to serve a six game suspension for that. that's the new nfl policy when it comes to first time offenders of domestic violence. >>dave: game one of the world series, actually was 6-0. indians crushed the cubs at home. now, starting pitcher kluber set a record with eight strikeouts in the first three innings. that's eight out of nine batters. perez got a pair of home runs. one of them a massive three-run shot in the eighth inning. the team that won game one has won 12 of the last 13 world
but listen to this. they're going to start an hour earlier because there's an unusual threat of rain. the first pitch ln -- will be at 7:08. you can watch on fox 13. pitching staff has been incredible this post season. nine games so far, 15 runs given up, four wins have been shutouts tying a post season record and only a few other teams have done that. onto hockey, lightning beat the maple leafs l point. 7-3. steven stamkos had two goals and two assists matching a career high with four points in the game. he's from toronto. he chose to stay in tampa bay instead of returning home to play when he had a chance to bolt during the offseason. you have to look at this, though. bolts goalie ben bishop was hit in the face on a shot by toronto peter holland.
losing some teeth. after a brief timeout, this is what is amazing to me about hockey players. he went back in the net, finishing the game with 40 saves. they're tough, tough. lightning are off to a great start. five wins, one loss. they'll play in montreal tomorrow night. despite a 34-17 win sunday in san francisco, bucs are not getting m rankings. they're still 21st. they have three wins, three losses. there are two teams ahead of them with losing records. the rams and the chargers. top three teams in the power rankings all have only one loss. patriots are number one this week. vikings are second and what's that team in third place spot that got a little star? >>russell: okay. >>dave: yes. that would be the dallas
>>russell: i guess so. it's been so long since he could. >>laura: very nice. well played. let's get back to the world series and an epic prediction. take a look at this. michael lee made a prediction with his 1993 year book photo and he said the cubs would win the world series in 2016. if you see the caption below there, you heard it here first. classmate came across the picture recently and put it on facebook. it already has a bunch of as you can imagine. >>russell: i was taking a picture of that because that looks like josh cassio to me. living in cleveland maybe the world series stress will put you in labor. if it does, fairview hospital is ready for the indians newest fans. the new fans are being bundled in cleveland indians hats and onesies for as long as the series is on.
the smallest indians fans have been warming up in the bullpen for nine months. doesn't that just warm your heart? warming up in the bullpen for nine months. and their call has finally arrived. aww. neat. >>laura: isn't that great? all right. then we just showed you video of lightning goalie ben bishop losing his teeth. his two front teeth, in fact. he is, in is he not? we asked to see your best ben bishop smile, though. we know you have picture. those kids giving that beautiful, toothless smile. we want you to post them on twitter or instagram with the hashtag "good day" td. we'll be right back.
she saw the boots and fell for fall all over again. was she expecting to find the perfect designer boots at such an amazing price?
no. you never know what you're gonna find, but you know you're gonna love it. my dad was a family doctor in pinellas county for 55 years. he used to even take me on house calls. both my parents taught me to help others. that's why i believe in public service. as your governor we got things done, and if you send me to congress we can do it again. i'll protect social security and medicare. defend planned parenthood and women's health care.
i'll put you, the people first. always have, and always will. when powerful people need someone to do their dirty work, they hire bob buesing. how far will he go? buesing fought to foreclose assisted-living retirement homes, threatening local seniors with homelessness. then, buesing defended wells fargo against charges of helping a ponzi-schemer swindle millions.
ng's running for senate. how far will bob buesing go? that's up to you. amendment 1 protects consumers from scams, promotes safe solar, and is endorsed by florida's firefighters. so, why are out-of-state billionaires attacking it? because amendment 1 stops their subsidies. amendment 1 ensures that if you don't choose solar, you don't
have to pay for those who do. amendment 1 blocks special subsidies for special interests.
(russell) we all
work hard for our money. for some, it's >>russell: you know the song "we work hard for the money." for some it's more than enough and for others, it's barely enough to pay the bills and the rest of folks are going into debt. geoff simon in to things. good morning. >> how are you? >>russell: good. good to see you. let's start with spending. i mean, you know, there's situations people get into that they can't help but there are some things you can do, right? start with spending. >> sure. let's talk about spending. people, you know, the important thing is not to spend more than you have and the good news is, about half of the people in florida, about 48% of the population, are actually
that's about 48% are doing better than they're spending. about 34% are right at that sort o break even, they're bringing in the same amount of money they're shipping out or that they're spending. but there are 18% of the folks out there who are actually spending more than they're making and they're getting into debt every month. and you know, you can't make that up in volume. the more you spend, the less you make. eventually that's going to catch up to things were so bad, we talked about bankruptcies and what people were doing and that was the only way out for a lot of people. where are we with bankruptcies these days? >> bankruptcy has been a disaster in florida. florida is one of the worst states hit during the great recession as you pointed out, but it's improved a lot. if you take a look at 2010, sort of at the height of the great recession, there were 113,000 pa bankruptcies in the state of florida.
2012, that was down to 80,000 and 2015, it's down to 56. the rate of bankruptcy is literally dropped in half. that's a great sign. so people are doing better but 56,000 still pretty significant number but it's much better than we saw just five years ago. >>russell: and i apologize for springing a question on you you may not know. 56,000 still sounds like a lot to me. is there a normal rate of bankruptcy? >> i'm you. >>russell: is there a normal rate of numbers for bankruptcy? >> if you look at where we were in 2006, the bankruptcy rate in florida was about 25,000 so we're still twice as high as we were back then. 56 is a big number. you also have to take into consideration that the state's population has grown substantially since 2006 so that sort of accounts for some numbers. but we're still a little high. not everyone has recovered fully
2010. >>russell: what about rainy day fund? you know, we all hope we can have one. you know, like if something goes wrong in our lives, how are we on that? >> that's an important thing to keep in mind. most people realize things could go bad and you need some reserves. when it comes to rainy day funds, only half the folks in the state of florida have a reserve set aside which is typically six months of living expenses if you lose your job or have a health emergency. that again, during the recession, that was even a lower number. right now about half the people in the state of florida say they have enough to get by for six month period of time if there is some sort of emergency like losing a job. >>russell: a lot of folks, all of us learned a hard lesson. all right. hey, good to see you. >> you, too. >>russell: take care. >>laura: the voting age is 18 but it's great if you can learn about politics before that. students at countryside high school are doing just that.
people who will become voters one day. good morning, jen. >>jennifer: good morning. yeah, there are even a couple of students here at countryside high school who are already at the voting age. it's not just news agencies and polling experts are keeping a close watch on the 2016 election. high school students are here and it's thanks to their wonderful american government teacher, right? am i right? chip spencer. good morning. thanks for being here with us. iov >> thank you. >>jennifer: talk to me about your teaching, your plan this year. i'm sure it might have been different this year since we're in the election season than a year in the past. >> there's been a lot of interest. you know, every year we teach the election and the election process but this year in particular, you know, with the election as contentious as it is, in some ways it's added
we've researched the candidates and we've debated and we spent a lot of time on just really getting to learn the process and learn, you know, what it's all about. >>jennifer: i'm very interested in hearing about this debate that you guys put on in the class. talk to me more about that. >> okay. i had the students research both candidates. they had to -- you know, i gave them a week. they had to look at what they stood and they had to have a very civil debate, unlike what we saw on national tv. and they did a very good job of it. >>jennifer: is it hard to keep your political ideals out of the classroom? i'm sure you don't want to be bias. >> you know, it really is. it's about the kids. and the neat thing is, i have some kids that are of voting age and this is the first time
to be, the future of our country so i want to stay as unbias as possible so the kids can have the best experience. >>jennifer: it looks like you're doing a great job and they're learning along the way. in the next hour, we'll talk to some students, maybe even talk to one that is getting ready to cast their first presidential vote. >>laura: what an election to cast it in, too. see you next hour. >>dave: 7:49. a day. even to the north where we've been sitting in the 40s for the past couple of mornings, not so this morning. we're starting in the 60s brooksville, crystal river, wesley chapel, tampa in the mid 60s and yeah, st. petersburg close to 70 degrees. it's actually closer to 80 in the miami area. as you look back, yeah, it's 21 degrees warmer in gainesville than it was yesterday at this time. so obviously things are beginning to warm up and we do
had yesterday. we'll have a brisk little northeast wind. those, too, will combine to bring our temperatures up into the mid 80s and i'm thinking about 84 degrees for a high temperature this afternoon under mostly sunny skies and yes, it will be a little breezier than yesterday. overnight lows near 67 degrees and then clouds and sunshine and more warmth tomorrow with your high temperature of 85. one thing i've got to caution you on and that is for boaters today, we do have a advisory. by the way, i think that's going to continue into tomorrow as well. next seven days, no rain. lows in the mid to upper 60s and steady. steady as she goes with highs in the mid 80s right through phalloween. >>vanessa: thanks. i did want to mention here in pinellas county that drivers along 275 northbound will likely see some delays in the area approaching north of 54th avenue north. we have a crash that's newly reported here. two lanes are passing and delays
time here. meantime, we'll take a look at some drive times on the other interstates. i-4 and 75. >>russell: justin timberlake will likely not face punishment for a bad decision he made in the voting booth. he snapped a selfie in a polling station and then put it on social media. that's a no-no. tennessee law prohibits voters from recording or taking pictures inside a polling station. those caught breaking the law face jail tim while the county district attorney is aware of it, currently no investigation into timberlake or selfie, at least for now. charley, how are you doing, my friend? >>charley: the training center has been around for 63 years. >>russell: amazing. >>charley: making a big difference in our community. since 2007, they've had to
transponders. today they'll be packaging their 10 millionth sun pass. any time you buy one, it was put together by these wonderful people you see right here. mcdonald training center, of course, is providing wonderful vocation and life skills to adults with disabilities. fantastic place. i can't say enough good things about them. when we come back, we'll talk to the fairly new ceo about everything happening here and why 10 million is a big deal when "good day tampa bay" continues. port tampa bay has now become florida's largest and most diversified. which helps explain why it is one of dana young's top priorities. generating over 15 billion for the regional economy, and 80 thousand local jobs.
and fighting a bureaucracy that too often gets in the way. dana young for the florida senate. a return to common sense. hillary clinton: far too many families today don't earn what they need and don't have the opportunities they deserve. i believe families deserve quality education for their kids, childcare they can trust and afford, equal pay for
>>charley: "good day." i'm coming to you from mcdonald training center. karen is a fairly new ceo. this is her 81st day on the job. what a fun day you're going to have. i mean together here. let's remind everybody what the mcdonald training center is all about. >> it's about providing opportunities for people with disabilities to live the life they choose. and that is really what we do. the minute they walk through the door to the minute they leave us, they're getting the opportunities they need to live the life they choose. not what we choose but they choose. >>charley: i love the vocation skills, life skills they get
many times get a job out in the world they might not otherwise have the confidence to give themselves. but they come through here and suddenly, employers are like, yeah. good worker. >> they exceed our expectations every day. >>russell: since 2007 you've had the sun pass contract. i know on day one they made 400 together and they thought, what have we gotten into? now you're averaging 11,000 a day and today you hit the millionth number. who would have thought 10 years ago we would be here today? i think it's because we have exceeded expectations of the community, of everyone else. people with sdabls can do the work. the same work that you and i can do, they can do. when you think about the transponder and the sun pass, it's a pathway for drivers. it's a pathway to employment for people here. and we always like to say, when you see that big thank you when you're driving through, it's really a thank you from the
>>charley: good luck on day 82. 81 is going good. >> thank you. >>charley: pick up a sun pass. when you do, pat yourself on the back. you're supporting the mcdonald training center when you do it. we'll talk to workers here and somebody from the florida turnpike system and we'll have a good time as we always do at the mcdonald training center. >>russell: all right. see you later. concussions. we know this. bad for your brain. but taking a single hit to the head can be almost as dangerous. we're going to explain at 00 election, florida proves to be the most important state in the presidential race. but now some say the state does not do enough to get voters to the polls. at 8:00, what some activists say ?? halloween excitement is back at dunkin' with halloween donuts and munchkins. drizzled, decorated, and all dressed up for the season, pick up a box and share the fun. america runs on dunkin'. i moved on her like a [bleep].
no we don't. marco rubio stands by trump and
failed to show up for florida. here's what i believe in. bringing people together and reaching across the aisle to get things done. protecting social security. and building an economy that works for all of us. i'm patrick murphy and i approved this message because i'll be a senator who always works for you. if you're using this toothpaste,
and clinical tests show that it only provides about a half-shade of whitening. colgate optic white high impact white is different. it contains hydrogen peroxide, a professionally recommended whitening ingredient. it goes beyond surface stains to deeply whiten. it whitens four shades, and that is a visible difference in whitening. colgate optic white high impact white toothpaste. this year the voters of pinellas county have an opportunity as governor he worked with both parties to get things done and i know you can trust charlie to do the same in congress. he'll fight to protect social security and medicare. defend women's health care and planned parenthood. and take care of our veterans. charlie needs your vote, please stand with him. i know he'll always stand with you. i'm charlie crist and i approve this message.
((russell explaining is fall with dunkin's coffee and espresso flavors. sip salty and sweet with our new salted caramel macchiato or drink in the season with the classic taste of pumpkin. america runs on dunkin'. >> explaining an amendment 1 our political editor craig patrick here to talk about the pros and cons solar amendment and the kwudzing wording in this ballot. >>nd how to handle those awkward situations when politics is involved. especially a party or in the office. >> from tampa bay's number one news station, this is good day tampa bay. hey efshgdz it's an 8 o'clock. good morning we thank you for waking up with us on this wednesday morning it is october 26th we need to get a check forecast with dave osterberg.
