8:00 am
((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.
8:01 am
delightful outside. i just took one word and i made it three. delightful. gorgeous. sun is up. 67. temperatures a little bit warmer than we've seen over the past few days. especially to the north. like brooksville. crystal river. >> oh. >> something wrong with dave's mic we'll work on that and get back to him shortly. we want to check the roads right now >> it's on. it's can you hear me >> we can hear you now. do we want to get back to dave? >> dai i'm going to take it from here we will get back to you shortly as soap a we can. a skyfox check courtney campbell causeway eastbound direction a crash that's newly reported. a left lane will be blocked in delays we're seeing get back toward u.s. 19. looks like you're quickest work around your quickest alternate bridge will be howard frankland we will watch that. that can tend to change through morning more drivers take howard
8:02 am
changes avoid. into this now pinellas county you're still dealing with a this crash northbound a 54th avenue north. looks like right lane partially blocked here. two lanes, fully moving. and we have delays back towards downtown st. pete area. >> russell. santa's ballot yet one you got in mail this one of more confusing things on there amendment 1 solar energy amendment. lot of confu there's a chance you've already voted for it and you're not really sure what you voted for or against. we've got our political editor craig patrick here to explain what you would really be voting for if you say yes or if you say no. hey, how you doing? how are you guys? >> i was thrown off by it a little bit. it's confusing. let's meet start by saying a lot of people are saying where is amendment 4, i see one, two, three. what is happening amendment 4
8:03 am
>> that's right right. it so this is a follow-up solar question. >> okay. >> now for starters this gives you two rights, one, in the constitution, individuals, consumers have a right to produce solar power. it becomes writtens supreme law into our constitution. rights of government to regulate said power is also written in constitution. as it currently is not. one of the things i've about that we've already had that right. but it wasn't constitutional it's already in law redundant. what is saying we're stamping this in constitution such that it can never change unless we change the constitution. so, this comes down really to the premise that if you're third party, can or can you not sell your solar power to other people. right now in florida, only the power companies can sell power to people. not some third party.
8:04 am
power company. they would have to pass it on. what this would do, would lock in the right of consumers. not of third parties. and so opponents of this amendment say it would effectively block out our make it very hard for solar companies, for third party organizations, besides utilities to be able to sell their power back to individuals. back to consumers. this is a measure that's supported by the utility companies. by power it would seem to give them more power in government, more power to regulate their point on the other hand is that if you use solar power, you're in effect being sub died by people who are not. and therefore this without this amendment it would run the risk of ultimately down the road costing people who don't have solar panels. >> i'll honest with you. i'm very surprised at how at the
8:05 am
this. more than $20 million has been invested that i know of. good deal of it is coming from the power companies. it's coming from the utility companies. again, it all comes back to concerns they will say about protecting consumers. in the end consumers who do not themselves invest in solar power. under premise those that don't invest will ultimately have to pay more to sub dies those who do invest in solar power, because they would not be transmission and so forth. that's the back and forth. but if you have opponents of this amendment include something consumers watch dogs who are saying what a minute this effectively, if not freezes makes it much harder for third party solar companies to be able to sell their power or easily their electricity and therefore has the effect of impeding the growth of solar power. we have to go. to me, this one of these i got caught in this one, this is one
8:06 am
>> yes. >> sometimes it's one of those you start reading all the wording everything you get lost in it. you really owe it to yourself to read this one closely. read ballot language also read pros and cons spell them out very briefly reand detail impact this would have what rights government would have to regulate perhaps more so than it does today. you're going to come back and be with us 9 o'clock. we're going to medical marijuana. yes or no, you would think, but maybe not. we're going to get some details on that one as well. craig, thank you. good to see you. our military men and women put their lives online to protect us every single day. but a new report suggests that they don't belief the next commander in chief will be able to protect them no matter which candidate is elected. the majority of service members don't believe either candidate will be able to handle the
8:07 am
or the issues that veterans face here in this country. one third of those who plan on voting for hillary clinton do not believe she will be the best candidate to reform the department of veterans affairs. more than half that support donald trump do not believe he's best option to handle probable sexual assault in the military. one in 5 do not believe he understand military or issues they face. 10 percent do not believe that any of the candidates can defend the cup from terrorists. >> clinton h florida voters don't get complacent get out and vote. this will be a close election. clinton holds 3 point lead in florida right. donald trump spent last few days rally thing here that could play in his favor. clinton knows this and told supporters in broward county they shouldn't pay attention to poll numbers get out polls and vote. that is how their voices will be heard she says. we just under two weeks until election day. donald trump has a similar warning to voters. get out and cast your ballots.
8:08 am
way he can win this election without florida's electoral votes. and he has been rallying hard to get them. but a. this week there are no other planned events in sunshine state. most of his prior events have been on pretty short notice we will say. >> and floridians know this state is most important state in a political election. but voting right activist say government is not doing enough to make voter friendly state. there are 31 states that have laws requiring some sort of paid time off on election day. florida is not o making early voting sites available on weekends and evening through sunday november 6th. it seems to be helping near 300,000 voters went to polls state wide since early voting began on monday. 8:08 right now can you really put a price on a person or their lives? if you're a jury or a judge you can. it turns out children, minorities and women are worth a whole lot less.
8:09 am
gender to determine how much victims and their families should receive when someone seriously injured or killed. if to break it down white men usually receive much more money than other people in similar cases. if you're wondering how they came to this conclusion economists say they look at how much a person would have made over a lifetime. take into consideration where that person lives. if the family members have a degree. and if they could have received one. don't typically play in favor for minorities. economist say monetary worth in these situations are being underestimated by 20 percent or more when using averages. many involve legal system say they want this practice changed. because a person's race or ethnicity cannot determine an individualing achievements later in life. >> taking a hit to head even ups

i served under president bush and obama. i fought the taliban. i was asked to form a global coalition to counter isil. when someone makes the comment that they know more about the islamic state or isil than do the generals, it implies a complete ignorance of the reality. but i believe secretary clinton really understands the threat that the islamic state poses to the united states and to the american people. and i believe she understands how to wield american power to ultimately defeat this threat

8:14 am
and i approve this message.
8:15 am
((laura 2shot)) it's better to be safe than sorry.. that's the you're watching good day tampa bay. better to be safe than sorry a stance busch garden is taking deciding to shut down one most popular rides. here is why. on monday, australia 4 people died after being caught in river rapids ride and dream world. they crashed into another raft causing them to flip, two kids were tossed. four adults were caught under the raft. a busch garden has is own version of ride. congo river rapids. and shayla is at busch gardens. shayla i know that we don't know when this ride will be open again. but i think it's really important to stress they haven't had any problems. they are just closing this out
8:16 am
yes? >> yes. you're absolutely right. this is all about caution. all about safety and officials at busch gardens say they want to understand exactly what happened in australia. we know here in tampa, they have closed the ride. but in the aftermath what they are going to be doing with this closure is working with engineers. they are working with ride manufacturers as well as people here on the property. the park operators to determine you know, exact what happened and looking at their equipment and making sure it's safe as well. we now busch gadz tells they already take steps to make sure they do daily checks on the property. make sure that the rides are safe and compliance with state guidelines as well. but, this extra step is being taken as investigators continue to look into the case in australia. the deadly accident there at dream world park.
8:17 am
exactly when the ride will reopen here in tampa. but officials again are saying this is a cautionary move. it's one that they are taking until they can get some more information on what happened. of course the ride there in australia said to be very similar to the one right here in tampa. >> guys, back to you. all right shayla, thank you. >> we'll talk later on. all right. now is man of the hour. how are you? >> we're good. you? >> beautiful outside. it is. just, and i know it's warmer. it's going to be breezier. but it's still fantastic too. its 67 degrees. so you look at our 8 o'clock temperatures they are a little bit warmer then they were yesterday at this. and how's that for a picture from riverview net cam? >> live shot. and looking off toward the west. you see couple of clouds mixed in with sunrise.
8:18 am
different look. mostly sunny skies from that advantage point. to be honest, that's what we're looking at today. a lot more sunshine than we had yesterday. that plus a breezy northeast wind. so guess what happens. these temperatures what you see here in metro area in the 60s. they are going to go back up in low to mid 80s. i think we will go 83, 84 for a high today. so two differences, breezier today. and we get some more tonight the overnight lows near 67 degrees. and tomorrow, back into the mid 80s clouds, sunshine. more warmth. one thing is we do have small craft advisory in effect by way that will linger into friday. to let you know halloween looks great. no significant rain chances over the next 7 days vanessa. all right. looks good. thanks dave here 8:18. we have some emergency road work under way for folks who missed
8:19 am
southbound direction is closed from spruce to arch street until friday. and in the meantime, those crews have also blocked off a left lane. lane turning off of the exit ramp of 275 southbound at himes. so drivers will likely encounter some issues there. probably your best work around for southbound himes is going to be dale mabrey. so keep in mind until friday. that's when you will using that work around. peen meantime back to courtney campbell causeway last report a crash with left lane blocked in heavy delays still all the way across the bridge. and good news is you look towards the south. best work around the howard frank land is looking pretty clear in that northbound direction. i think that's still going to be best work around for you. live look here pinellas county we have second crash reported northbound on 275. remember we showed you in the last report, the first one was closer to the area north of 54th avenue north. the second one is closer to the 175 exit.
8:20 am
and 54th. drivers can probably save a few extra minutes by taking u.s. 19 instead. here's look at travel times through the area. pretty heavy. i-4 westbound no big complaints here heading into interchange. southbound drivers on 75, give yourself about 16 minute to hit bruce b. downs boulevard and get to i-4. all right. coming up at 9, we are talking about at frustration that women are feeling about inconsistent sizing when it comes to clothing. the one word that a majority o bodies. and during last night's game against the maple leafs goalie ben bishop had his two front teeth knocked out. knocked out. he took it like a tough guy. the pictures of his toothless smile got us to thinking we want to see your child's ben bishop smile. any of your kids lost their two front teeth post pictures or

8:27 am
america runs on dunkin'. 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.
8:28 am
