tv   Good Day Tampa Bay 7AM  FOX  October 27, 2016 7:00am-8:00am EDT

7:00 am
((russell- the fight for florida. the presidential >>russell: the flight for florida. presidential candidates investing a lot of time and money here and a new poll shows why it's going to pay off eventually for one of them. >>laura: a bad accident. we just found out that five people are now dead. the debris shut down a busy bay area road. out the cause of this crash. >>russell: thanksgiving travel. it's only a few weeks away. still time to plan a trip. we're live with money saving advice if you decide to fly. welcome to the 7:00 hour of "good day tampa bay." i'm russell rhodes. >>laura: and i'm laura moody. good morning. that's all ahead and a whole lot more. first we need the forecast from dave osterberg. >>dave: pretty outside. we made it to the mid 80s yesterday. this morning i got more and more areas starting off at like 70,
7:01 am
yes, i know while we are getting warmer, it's not going to be overbearing. it's not going to be oppressive. we're 59 in crystal river, 68 in sarasota. we're going to bring it back up to 85 for a high temperature today under mostly sunny skies. enjoy it. >>vanessa: thank you. we have a few crashes we're following here but just two notable ones which we're going to mention right now. we have sky fox that's been keeping an eye on lutz lake fern harbor road where we have unfortunately reports of a deadly crash where a vehicle hit a home in a neighborhood just off this area and that did kill the driver. right now what we're looking at is the tow truck and a couple of officials, the authorities that are on scene. the vehicle, it's kind of hard to tell, but it's right there on the bed of the tow truck and it's very, very mangled. this has the road shut down as you can see. no one is getting by in the area and so drivers will want to
7:02 am
arounds for you, van dyke. we also have state road 54 which is going to be to the north and so we'll be trying to get more information from this crash, what caused it. we are able to tell you, however, the folks inside the home are reportedly okay. we'll get to this right now. shot of the sunshine skyway bridge, still slow in the southbound direction. last report we told you we have a crash close to the top. it is blocking that right southbound lane so left lane is passing but moving pretty slow in the area. delays are up to 20 account if you're choosing between the skyway or taking 75. at the very least, if you have to hit the bridge, make sure you're giving yourself 20, maybe even 25 minutes extra out the door. >>russell: the race between hillary clinton and donald trump appears to be tightening. that's according to a new fox news poll. >>laura: trump is building his lead among independents while clinton has another strategy. doug reports, she came to tampa
7:03 am
to vote early. >> we know the recent polls have been all over the map. there's a new a.p. poll out showing hillary clinton nationally has a healthy, double digit lead over donald trump. other polls show the race is tightening in its final days. how close are donald trump and hillary clinton? nationally at least, a new fox news poll puts the race at just three points, factoring in libertarian and green party cndidates. that would seem to be encouraging >> i do think that you're seeing a little narrowing in the race as republicans begin to come home. there are more republicans to come home. in some sense it's natural. question is whether it's enough and whether he can get enough juice out of independents to actually get to where he needs to be. >> and the same poll shows trump's numbers among independents do seem to be rising in recent weeks. he was in charlotte yesterday, hoping to boost lack luster numbers among minority voters, talking about a new deal for
7:04 am
not, i will be your greatest champion. >> trump, no doubt, concerned among other things about the rise of independent conservative, evan mc mullen and utah and clinton dealing with email leaks just about every day which detail her campaign's early efforts to defuse our email scandal and she's trying to lock down votes now to the point holding hands and walking to the polls. >> the county center on east kennedy boulevard is just a 10 minute walk from here. >> and the numbers show why both campaigns think early voting is so important. nationwide, about 12 1/2 million people have already cast their votes. >>laura: we expect to see more
7:05 am
florida. state is a tossup right now. too close to call. a new poll by bloomberg politics shows trump with a 45-43% lead. that's within the margin of error. 29 electoral votes are at stake right here in the sunshine state. president obama won florida in 2012 by less than one percentage point. and you know the numbers keep adding up. close to one million florida voters have taken advantage of early voting since monday. 56% have been female, mostly in florida have been 40 years or older. starting -- early voting starts saturday in pasco and highlands county. >>russell: heavy hitting last night at the final debate between marco rubio and patrick murphy. both accuse each other of accomplishing very little while being in washington. rubio said murphy never sponsored a bill that passed in the house. murphy attacked rubio's attendance record. go to
7:06 am
information as we count down to election day. also give you up to the minute results on election night. just click on the news tab at the top of the screen and then politics. >>laura: all right. this is something that vanessa is following. this is what is left from a multi vehicle crash on dr. martin luther king boulevard in hillsborough county last night. pieces of metal and glass and plastic littering the road. five people are dead and shayla reaves also following the story. she went to the scene to try to figure out wha crash. any new news yet? >>reporter: good morning to you, laura of the -- laura. we just receive word from troopers that a fifth person has died in connection with this crash. this was a multi vehicle crash that shut down a section of dr. martin luther king, junior boulevard for several hours as troopers investigated, trying to piece all of this together. right now you're looking at video from the scene.
7:07 am
9:45 last night. according to the florida highway patrol, they responded to that multi vehicle crash and some people here at the scene describe seeing one vehicle and one side of the roadway and the engine of that vehicle on another. just to give you an idea, some of them saying also they could see smoke coming from some of the vehicles here and at least two people had to be cut out of one of the i spoke with a man this morning who told me, he described himself as a friend of one of the drivers involved in this accident. this happened not far from coconut palm drive and the area of the tampa bypass canal. according to that friend, he said he and the other driver had connected for a car meetup before the crash and left in
7:08 am
someone else's home. a car carrying one of the men experienced problems on the road and he needed another ride back to that original meetup location. while in route, that particular person, now a passenger in another vehicle, noticed dr. martin luther king, junior boulevard had been shut down and on the other side of that area, he could see a vehicle he recognized, the other driver, his friend, that vehicle damaged in that crash. so far authori provided any information on how this crash actually occurred, what caused it, who is responsible. that's certainly part of the investigation and hopefully throughout the day, we'll learn new details to pass along to you, including the identities of the people who lost their lives last night. shayla reaves, fox 13 news. >>laura: all right. thank you. >>russell: new this morning, firefighters from sarasota county rushed back to the scene
7:09 am
flames reignite. we were sent this video of flames shooting through the roof of a house on sugar lane. firefighters were monitoring the scene for hot spots following another fire at the home. it started earlier on wednesday. the original fire trapped three people inside. a mother, father and adult son. firefighters were able to rescue the son by breaking down the concrete wall. it was too late to save the parents. neighbors say they were disabled. cause of the fire is under petersburg. >>laura: detectives are trying to find 76-year-old robert vanell's killer. his roommate found his body monday. police originally thought he died from natural causes because they couldn't see signs of trauma. autopsy showed otherwise. detectives went back to his house on sixth avenue north yesterday to look for clues and they have a few leads. if you know anything, call crime stoppers. students at palmetto high school
7:10 am
police had been searching for 18-year-old gaskin since the shooting death of alexander anderson days ago. we've not been told a motive yet. >>russell: a rapper with a rap sheet. kevin gates was found guilty of misdemeanor battery. took 90 minutes to get to a verdict. rapper will spend six months in jail for kicking a woman in the chest at the rumors nightclub in lake labd. he's going to be on probation for a year after that. victim admits shorts two times during a concert. he said that the kick was self defense. >>laura: didn't take long for busch gardens to reopen the congo river ride. it was shut down for an abundance of caution. they made that decision after an accident on a similar ride in australia left four people dead. busch gardens ran safety checks on the congo river ride to avoid any problems. they say that everything is okay. >>russell: we have a goodale deed from tarpon springs this
7:11 am
under the hood of her car. the cries were a kitten stuck inside the fender well of the car. the woman saw the stray cat earlier as she was walking to her car to go to work. well, she had no idea that the kitten had climbed up inside her s.u.v. when the woman heard the kitten's cries, she pulled up to the public safety building. after a few hours, firefighters pulled the kitten out who was named, appropriately, fender. >>laura: stay w catching up to the men. it's nothing to brag about, ladies. we have that story coming up. >>russell: and the illusion that's freaking people out on the internet. the size of your tv screen may help you see exactly what's happening here. >>dave: okay. it's 7:11. looking at the temperatures quickly, we have tampa at 70 degrees this morning. mid 60s east of town and north. by the way, only one spot,
7:12 am
south and mid to upper 60s polk, hardee, de soto and highlands county. we're gag -- going bac 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. dana young is working to continue that success, by attracting high waged jobs for families who need them dana young for the florida senate.
7:13 am
7:14 am
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 fought for. so, i'm voting for hillary clinton. hillary clinton:
7:15 am
>>dave: 7:15. john hopkins all children's hospital camera, that's what i like to see. how pretty is that this morning? notice the winds, though. we got more of an easterly component to that wind. running at about 16 miles an hour. so c once again today, it's 70 degrees with a beautiful start to the day overlooking our tampa skyline and east on kennedy and the brookdale, bayshore camera, east at 11 the wind speeds there and 67 degrees that particular temperature. in general, we are running anywhere from two to six degrees this morning. every single morning this week has been warmer than the
7:16 am
just keep it even. but it does look like over the next few days we're going to hold on to these mild, overnights and the seasonably warm afternoons. we have a sea breeze and we solidly for today and the next several days when the normal high temperature is around 82. this is not extreme. we're going above normal a few degrees. look at the thick cloud cover down over the keys, down over south florida, the everglades to miami so they're going to get a lot of cloud cover. they run the quick chance of a shower. i'm looking at maybe one or two
7:17 am
little passing sprinkle. that's the best rain chance we're looking at which will be breezy, warm. the whole southeast is set up as high pressure continues to dominate weather. let's take a look at new york where they have some frozen precipitation in upstate new york york. low temperatures every morning in the mid to upper 60s. clouds, sunshine, nice sunrise. 7:38 it comes up. 85 for a high temperature. tonight a few clouds and comfy with a low temperature of 68 degrees. 85 again tomorrow, nice and warm. boaters, please be careful today with the east wind at 20 knots. seas running two to four feet
7:18 am
afternoon. next seven days, non existent, well, less than 10%. high temps in the mid 80s, lows in the mid to upper 60s and one more time, we're going to dance this morning. this time for russell and laura with our happy halloween graphic, folks. and the dancing mummy. we hope you enjoy that. if nothing else, as cheesy as it is, it's bringing a smile your face. >>laura: i love that. >>dave: it has a couple of bandages it needs to fix there, too. >>vanessa: he's having too much of a good time. >>dave: i did that dance and that's how they got the graphic. >>russell: yeah. that's you. >>dave: no. absolutely not. i can't even dance that good so -- >>vanessa: we know. >>dave: hey!
7:19 am
was running. all right. we do want to check the roadways right now. it's 7:18 and we're actually watching two trouble spots along u.s. 41 in southern hillsborough county. gibsonton area, we have a crash reported at the intersection with cliff avenue and it's going to be in the southbound direction where we have a single lane blocked. we have the delays heading that way. so make sure you're planning extra time out the door. maybe you're leaving early here as well. u.s. 41, northbound direction at cracker avenue so we have a single lane blocked as well. then delays building in that direction, too. so plan extra time or maybe you want to take 301 or 75. that's easy to do and that doesn't put you too out of the way from where you're going. congestion points on the major roadways, looks normal here. i'm seeing 275 south coming into the interchange and i-4 westbound travelling through eastern hillsborough and then we're in the red here southbound 75 taking about 15 to get from bruce b downs to i-4.
7:20 am
sunshine skyway bridge. we have a crash in the southbound direction and this is a life look at those lanes leading up towards the north tower. very, very slow. single lane is passing, just as we told you before, and the delays are just under 30 minutes. so continue to weigh the option of 75 and see if that will work better for where you're going and where you're coming from and saving some time. laura? >>laura: thank you. women don't make as much as men when it comes to paychecks, but in one even. that is drinking alcohol. 100 years ago, men were twice as likely as women to drink alcohol. it's much more likely to abuse it. but through the years, it's grown more even and now, it's practically equal. and the reasoning is because of more beer and wine being marketed to women and women working outside the home taking part in happy hour. >>russell: some breaking news caught on camera. a bear scratching its back.
7:21 am
>>laura: late and breaking. and then the cost of college. it's a small fortune. no wonder so many parents are struggle to go pay. we'll talk about that. but first, we need to get over to charley belcher, see what he's up to this morning. >>charley: laura, when you walk around, do you ever hear your own theme music in your head? >>laura: sure. >>charley: you do? good. i'm not the only one. i always imagine like a sound track to my life. it would probably sound something like this. ? >>charley: wait. that's not me. is it? i would probably be -- my theme music would be more like this. "good day." i'm coming to you from the usf theater and dance this morning. they're putting on a show, sweet charity. got me a piano player. play me off, sam. stick around.

says his body had a strong odor of alcohol when divers found it last month. the same for his two friends. they all died when the boat hit a jetty near miami beach in the early morning hours of september 25. affidavit also says officials found a receipt for alcohol from a bar where the man had gone before the crash and there's evidence they were speeding as well. fernandez was a graduate of alonso high school in tampa. marlins picked him in the first round of the draft. he b pitchers in the majors. he never had a losing season. >>laura: thanksgiving is four weeks from today. not a lot of time to plan a trip, but it's not too late. walter allen is at tampa international airport with a few suggestions. if you decide to fly, good morning. >>walter: yeah. this is about the time of year when you start to button down the thanksgiving plans and if those plans include getting on an airplane, we have things you need to know this morning.
7:35 am
have the least amount of delays, best airports to fly out of and the best days to fly to and from. let's go from the back. airplanes that have the least amount of delays, honolulu, hawaii. 92% of flights were on time. here in the mainland, atlanta, hartsfield jackson airport had the least amount of delays on the mainland. worst airport to fly out of, san francisco international airport. there's some things you need to know. to airlines, we'll state with hawaiian airlines. 93% of their flight were on time. of the three majors, delta had the best. delta, 88.8% of their flights were on time and then alaska air rounds out the top three. but again, of the three majors, delta is the best and then united and american, they're kind of in the middle of the pack of the top 10 and they're right at 83, 82% of flights were on time. if you're going to fly budget,
7:36 am
of flights, they didn't do so well. they're actually on the back end of the top 10 list. none of those carriers broke the 80% when it comes to flights on time. that's something you need to know going into it and at least you can be a little prepared. best days to travel, i will let you turn up your volume on your televisions so you can hear me loud and clear. november 21, the monday before thanksgiving. november 22, that tuesday, that is the worst day to tr itself, that's actually the least reported delays so you won't be travelling with everybody. everybody will be eating turkey. there you go. november 26, that is a saturday. that is actually the best of the weekend days to fly out because the later you get into the weekend, the more delays tend to pile up. november 29, that following tuesday, that is the worst day to fly back. so there you are. you're informed consumers and
7:37 am
arms and what airports to fly out of. >>laura: i appreciate that. every year we do this story and every year, i think of planes, trains and automobiles. you know? remember that? that was great. >>walter: those aren't cushions? those aren't cushions? >>laura: thank you. walter allen. thank you. delta airlines, letting passengers track bags with a new app. the carrier will attach radio frequency identification tags to your lug of luggage and send location information to that app. it's called fly delta. tampa international is one of about 85 airports using it right now. you can download it by going to the delta airlines website. >>russell: 7:37. going to college, a basic part of the american dream but getting a higher education does not come easily and sure not cheap. jen has more on the rising costs of college. >>jennifer: we all know that college tuition can be expensive
7:38 am
than you might think. rising faster than inflation and family income. the college board released the annual report webs -- wednesday. the average fees at public colleges went up 10% over the past five years and increased 12% at private institutions. but median family income only rose 7% the same period. one reason for the increase? public colleges are still feeling the effects of state during the recession. what is the college mean in dollars and cents? two-year community college averages a little over 11,500. a private college costs you about $16,000 not including room and board. if you go out of state, that's about $35,000 and a private college, that's going to set you back the most, around $45,000. now, there is some good news. most families don't end up
7:39 am
scholarships and grants. while the cost of college is still on the rise, it's not skyrocketing like it did during the recession. >>russell: thank you. we run stories about how important it is for kids to show up at school. but what about the teachers? >>laura: a new study shows how often a lot of them are absent and how it's affecting the classroom. more than one in four of all full-time teachers can be considered chronically absent from school. that's according to new information from the u.s. department that means the teachers are missing more than 10 days in a school year and this is a number that's gone up steeply. this is having an effect on students. kids need consistency in the classroom and high quality instruction. government says a parade of substitutes can seriously set back academic process. >>russell: the department of education broke it down by city as well and found the problem is worse in the poorer areas in the bigger cities. overall, tampa faired better
7:40 am
6% throughout 18 days or more. 24% considered frequently absent. 53% of teachers are absent about four to nine days a year and 16% have excellent attendance. so the real question becomes, why? according to the department of education, teachers are feeling less motivated to come to work because of student misbehavior and lack of support from the principal and administrators. >>laura: the tampa has been barbecuing this morning at raymond james stadium. they do it every year and it's all for a good cause. alcides segui is there this morning. i'm jealous. >>reporter: this right here, this is intense. they've been cooking since 2:00 this morning and the smoke that's under this tent that's been here all morning long, i don't know how you guys are doing it. cooker, dipper, doing it all. first off, i mean, i don't think
7:41 am
cooking you guys have been doing. >> i've been doing it for 35 of 37 years as a member of the club and i got to tell you, it's a labor of love and yeah, the smoke is pretty horrible but it's really a labor of love because you get to see it in the programs like we're giving back to the community, the good we're doing from the proceeds raised from this event. we all look forward to this. >>reporter: 11,000 pounds of chicken and looks like you're summing things up here. meals have already been sold so a lot of those businesses are receiving meals today. but there's still time to come by and grab some lunch from 11:00 to 3:00. >> plenty of time at the stadium. there's a drive-through instruction. come by. $10 and we would love for you to eat our product this afternoon. >>reporter: and briefly tell us where the money is going. 100% of proceeds are going to
7:42 am
scholarships for kids that wouldn't ordinarily be able to afford to go to college. we also hold a christmas party at the amalie arena every year that has -- where we take 155. >>reporter: thank you very much. gill has been doing it 30 plus years. henry has been doing it for 30 plus years. a lot of here so long and it's a well oiled machine and it's been going, again, since 2:00 this morning. they're almost done here. once they take the food from the barbecue, they put it in containers and then it's taken to the other side of raymond james and they've got volunteers there. they're packing it, putting it in boxes and they're taking it to different businesses across the bay area. but if you wanted lunch for 1
7:43 am
bib and everything and do the whole dipping. i can't do it. i mean, i can't. i can't even express to you how bad i smell right now. look at this. it smells amazing. i appreciate it there, mr. robinson. it's not going to happen. >>laura: pungent. >>reporter: i don't think the smell is going to get out of my clothes. >>laura: thank you. >>dave: in sports, the end to a 71-year drought as the cubs have finally won a world series game. they beat the indians in cleveland 5-1 to even the series at a game apiece. ben zobrist had two hits for the cubs. chicago was up 5-0. cubs hadn't won a world series
7:44 am
