((russell- it's seven o'clock on election day. time to start voting if you haven't already. >>russell: 7:00 on this election day. months of hard work and sleepless nights end tonight >>laura: and teens in trouble. four young men accused of holding a man at gun point while threatening his wife and one of them is still on the loose. >>russell: the lap of luxury. flying first class on a private plane. they're accepting reservations even on short notice. welcome to the 7:00 hour of "good day." i'm russell rhodes. >>laura: and i'm laura moody. first we need the election day forecast from dave osterberg. >>dave: and it is beautiful. pretty outside this morning. lakeland net camera shows it to you. i know that the temperature is right over where the sun is
of how pretty it is in polk county. in fact, most of the country, the weather looks great for election day. we'll have that northeast wind again today so we'll keep it relatively mild this afternoon with a mixture of clouds and sunshine. we're going to sneak right back up into the lower 80s for high temperatures. enjoy it. >>vanessa: thanks, dave. looks like the biggest incident on the road is going to be along 275. it's northbound direction in case you're were watching this crash in the last report and it's going to be infecting drivers who will be heading north past the fowler avenue area. it is taking up a left lane. we have authorities on scene but i'm not seeing tow trucks so it could be locker until this is cleared out. the good news is we're seeing delays under five minutes or so so you can plan that extra time or if you just would rather take a work around, please do so. we'll update you as we get on throughout the morning on how this crash is clearing.
the normal congestion. clear on southbound 75 and i-4 westbound. not too bad. seven minutes from mlk to the interchange. >>laura: wait is over. it is election day. hillary clinton and donald trump were up past midnight. >>russell: barn storming through a number of precincts. >> voting has begun here in virginia and this is a state that for years was reliably it's now reliably democratic. it may give us an idea about voter enthusiasm. the first results are in. tiny dixville notch in new hampshire making the call just after midnight. >> hillary clinton four counts. donald trump, two votes. >>reporter: clinton victory, four votes to two. in the primaries, they thought this would be a race between
>> none of us want to wake up wednesday morning and wish we had done more, right? >>reporter: hillary clinton went past midnight campaigning in north carolina after a massive rally in philadelphia which also included the obamas. donald trump also burning midnight oil in michigan. >> did you ever think you would be hearing a major speech like close to 1:00 in the morning? are we crazy? is this crazy? >>reporter: good news for trump is that the map is shifting tossup states like arizona, iowa and utah are leaning to republican. good thing for clinton, the map still shows democrats and then there's congress with republicans likely to keep their majority in the house but the senate is where the action will be. democrats need to pick up just five seats to take control and republicans have more seats to defend. >> republicans need everything
control of the senate. it's more likely that democrats take the senate but by a very narrow margin. >>reporter: some senate races are going to be fascinating to watch tonight. this all comes down to turnout and we've seen a pretty long line at this precinct this morning. >>russell: 7:04 and a warning from homeland security. al qaeda terrorists disrupt the election with terror attacks today. that's the reason for extra security in new york city. clinton and trump are hosting election night events in manhattan. >>laura: a record number of americans sdr already cast a ballot. at least 43 million. we had just over six million vote early here in florida. that includes almost half of all voters in hillsborough county but they stale expect a heavy turnout today. shayla reaves is at a polling
talk about the crowd and what the scene is there as the polls just opened a few moments ago. good morning. >>reporter: good morning to you. we're outside of christ the king catholic church in the 800 block of south dale mabry highway where the doors just opened a few minutes ago. we're beginning to see a few people trickling into the parking lot, but of course, we anticipate the activity picking up as we make our way through the day. again, this is one of dozens of polling locations available for come out and show their support for the candidates running in this election. we can tell you right around 49% of people, registered voters in hillsborough county voted early and today we will have the chance to see how many more are going to come out and cast their ballots. so the polls will be opening again, we mentioned they open at 7:00 and we'll be open until 7:00 this evening and if you plan to vote, make sure you bring your government issued photo i.d.
you're allowed to take it into the polling room and unlike early voting, you must vote at your assigned precinct. it will be labelled on your voter registration card. if you are in line by 7:00 p.m., you will be allowed to vote. that is the law. hillsborough county is just one of dozens of jurisdictions that will be monitored during this election cycle by the justice department. we want to make sure that voting laws are being followed. no one is having trouble as far as discrimination, or fraud. we'll be looking for that as well as 27 other states in addition to floor rflorida. i'll have another report in a few moments. back to you. >>laura: and this election is too close to call. here are results from four different polls done in florida this week. trump and clinton lead in one apiece, two are tied. they're all within the margin of error of 2% to 3%. >>russell: yeah. that was not one of those polls.
let's get to this story. florida has chosen the overall winner in nine of the last 10 presidential elections. only exemption was 1992 and don't let anybody tell you your vote does not count. here we go. a lot of you remember the recount back in 2000. a long and tedious process. in the end, george w. bush beat al gore by 537 votes in florida. nearly six million votes were cast that year. florida made headlines again the we were the only state decided by less than 1%. president obama beat mitt romney. that's out of almost 8.5 million votes. >>laura: u.s. senator is trying to keep his job. he faces democratic congressman patrick murphy and it's been a tight race. latest poll shows rubio leading murphy 50-43%. the senator has outspent murphy
13 for the congressional race. david jolly and charlie crist. if he wins, democrats will gain a seat in the house. we have more election coverage coming up, including what donald trump needs to happen for him to win. you can follow the election online. we'll follow the results all night long. >>russell: on to other things now. older couple is recovering from a home invasion in lakeland. three of the suspected listen to this. they are 15, 16 and 19 years old. detectives accuse them of holding a 77-year-old man at gun point while threatening to rape his wife if he doesn't give them money. husband and wife are okay. a fourth suspect got away. if you know who that may be, call crime stoppers. 1-800-226-tips. >>laura: detectives are trying to track down a killer. they've been getting tips
she was sitting in her car with a friend when they were shot at on sunday afternoon. she was killed. her parents think the bullets were meant for somebody else. they're still making funeral arrangements. >>russell: computer outrages affecting dmv offices across the state. system failure caused big problems at four dmv offices in pasco county over the weekend. customers waited in line for hours after a glitch crashed the dmv system. hundreds were turned away with expired licenses and tags. those n for voting also had to try again yesterday. it's the second saturday this month this system has gone down. >>laura: it is about 7:10 and time for a good day, good deed. a good samaritan paid a fire crew's bill after they went for a call. group was shopping for their lunch and dinner at a citrus park publix but they got a call
service so they could come back for it a little later and when they returned, their food was paid for in full and this was the note thanking them for their service. >>russell: how great is that? that's great. all right. do you know your lines? it's time for traffic tip tuesday and today we're getting street smart by learning what the lines on the street really mean. >>laura: and there are no lines on this street. not anymore. one of the largest sink holes we've ever seen street to crumble away. >>dave: 7:10 on a lovely, lovely tuesday morning. getting your kids off to the bus stop. we have a nice, comfy, 65 degrees in the tampa area. it's going to stay mild throughout the day today with a mixture of clouds and sunshine. we're going to get back to about
i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. people in the upper echelons of the military are very concerned about the things that mr. trump has already said he's going to ask the military to do. chris matthews: talking of maybe
using nuclear weapons, nobody wants to hear that about an american president. well, then, then why are we making them? a foreign policy expert went to advise donald trump, and three times he asked, "if we have them, why can't we use nuclear weapons?"
you're suffering from fobo. fobo? fobo. fobo... fear of better options. up to 40% off, 24-months special financing, and free delivery. at hhgregg. this is mike's office. if he doesn't show up, he doesn't get paid. too often marco rubio didn't show up and failed us when he did. i am patrick murphy. to get things done, you've got to show up. you've got to work together. whether it's protecting social security and women's health care
s. i am patrick murphy and i approve this message because i'll never stop working for you. my dad was
a family doctor in pinellas county for 55 years. because i'll never stop working for you. 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. and i'll take care of our veterans. i'll put you, the people first.
>>dave: sitting here at 7:14, i just want to stop for a second and just enjoy this picture. just for a second, okay? yeah? are you with me? gorgeous. the john hopkins all children's hospital camera, this is a gorgeous sunrise on this election day. you've mixing in with the sunshine over the tampa net cam. we're not done yet. let's show you lakeland, too, as well. there's the beautiful sun over lake mirror. fantastic start to the day. you know what? really most of the country is going to enjoy a sunny, mild, election day. not all. but most. there have been many times on election days we've had massive storms sweeping across the country. that's not the case today.
tampa, brandon. sn city center, you're 59 degrees at this hour. so is inverness and crystal river. weeki wachee, brooksville also in the upper 50s. i have mid 60s bradenton to sarasota. lower 60s in polk county. right now running about two to four degrees cooler than yesterday at this time. it's not a huge difference but a noticeable difference. just feels a little bit nicer out there and winds i'm telling you, every morning you get this little wind surge right along the immediate coastline. that's why you see the blueish color in southern pinellas county. i do look for winds to relax along the coast for this afternoon so keep that in mind. boaters, this afternoon will be a lot better than today. quiet overall pattern and the only little bit of a change is going to be this trough trying to push east.
tiniest chance of a sprinkle tomorrow. that's it, though. other than that, the week looks tremendous. looks like yesterday did as well. getting these high temperatures back up and it's really going to be a normal week weatherwise because i'm looking at high temperature today around 82 which is technically above normal but within a couple of degrees, just very pleasant. tonight as the sun is going down -- by the way, last night's sunset was 5:41 the sunset. lows in the mid 60s. and then for tomorrow, mostly cloudy. i got a sprinkle for you, 78 degrees for a high temperature tomorrow. look through the next seven days and really other than the tiny little sprinkle tomorrow, we're quiet. going into the weekend, veterans day on friday is going to be stunning for outdoor activities. there's a 79 for a high and a 78
dover area, drivers have to look out for lane blocks. a new crash where according to fhp, the intersection is going to be blocked. avoid if you can, if not make sure you're planning extra time here. we're still watching 275 northbound at fowler avenue. we still have the left lane blocked. good news is we haven't seen any big drops. we're seeing basically back from the area north of fowler avenue where the crash is towards bush area. so plan, i would say, at least an extra five minutes out the door for that. we'll let you know when it clears. >>laura: thank you. private jets are expense active to charter. only the ultra rich can afford to use them. a growing number of apps are trying to reduce the cost. >> imagine looking forward to a trip to the airport. these days hiring a private jet is almost as quick and easy as
>> celebrities like it. i think music fans like it. some business owners like it. some wealthy families like it, too. it is expensive but it's a fraction of the cost of chartering a private jet. >> you tell it when to take off. >>russell: >>reporter: instant booking private jet companies combine free scheduled flights, last minute deals and chartered flights all in one app. our starting point is $15,000 so we've cost up to 10 times. and then if you want more flexibility, you can start creating your own flights but you're still saving a significant amount of money in terms of what traditional charter would cost. >> the app is being downloaded nearly 800,000 times. it has a membership renewal rate of 90%. its investors include celebrities like jay z. >> it is an expensive certainly. it's not for everyone. i think the original objective
right now it's for the wealthy individuals who want to make the travel experience easier. >> also flying into the instant booking private jet space, are companies like blue star jets which promises you can be flying anywhere worldwide with as little as four hours' notice. $2,000 month, beacon says you can travel private jet in northeast. private fly, customers in the air within an hour. its record is about 43 minutes. >> it's really making flying fun again. it's making the journey exciting. today when we go to a commercial airport, it's like a chore. >> you can go anywhere in the world on these planes. order it up on the app and you're good to go. >> jet starter includes kim kardashian who tweeted about it to millions of followers.
moments later. >>laura: big sink hole is causing major traffic issues this morning. amazing video you have to see. >>russell: plus panic on a plane. a snake forces an emergency landing after it slithers out from an overhead compartment. look at that. first, though, let's check in with charley belcher for something much more pleasant. dogs and cats, right? >>charley: suffering from election fatigue, russell? >>russell: yes. >>charley: you just want to lock away from it all? this cat wants to get away from me. couldn't you have pretended to like me for 10 seconds? >>russell: so close, my friend. so close. there we go. >>charley: okay. well, maybe you want to visit your local animal shelter and just get away from it all. this cat wants to. it is national animal shelter appreciation week.
reporter appreciation week so you can't blame the cat. but we are here appreciating animal shelters and we are in winter haifr en at the humane society of polk county and we're going to have a "good day tampa bay" whether this okay, you know i was your governor.
but there' s some things you may not know. my hair used to be way better. i played quarterback. my dad was a doctor here for 55 years. i swim every morning. and yes, i'm a fan of fans! and in congress i'll get things done for pinellas county.
and take care of our veterans. i'm charlie crist and i approve this message. because i'll put the people first. always have, and always will. putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing. when i come home and dinner's
not ready i go through the roof. grab 'em by the p****". when you're a star, they let you do it. you can do anything. by donald trump. i'll go backstage before a show... yes.. and everyone's getting dressed. donald trump walked into the dressing room while contestants, some as young as 15 were changing. standing there with no clothes. you see these incredible looking women. i'd look her right in that fat ugly face of hers. she ate like a pig. a person who's flat-chested is very hard to be a 10. do you treat women with respect?
welcome back to good day tampa bay. the time is >>laura: time is 7:24 and in the headlines this morning, another body has been found on the property of an accused serial killer. >>russell: that is three so far. the property in spartanburg, south carolina belongs who was caught thursday after police found a woman chained inside a storage container on his land. now, in addition to the three bodies, he's also admitted to killing four people at a motorcycle shop 13 years ago. he plans to represent himself in court. >>laura: robert durst entered a not guilty plea to a murder charge in los angeles. he sat in a wheelchair, wear ag neck brace. 73-year-old real estate heir is
she was about to talk to investigators about the death of his first wife and they say durst shot her to keep her quiet. >>russell: custody agreement between angelina jolie and brad pitt. six children will stay with her and pitt will continue to have what they call therapeutic visits. jolie is seeking the divorce because of irreconcilable differences with the health of the family being her priority, she says. the couple has been married two >>laura: take a look at this. a big sink hole is closing a busy street in the japanese city. construction workers were extending a subway tunnel when the ground gave way. electric, gas and water lines all broken. fortunately, no one is hurt. >>russell: not a movie. this time it's real. a snake terrified passengers mid air over the weekend.
they saw a snake wiggle out of an overhead bin. this was on a commercial flight out of mexico on sunday. crew made the emergency landing and secured the state. they're still investigating how it got on board to start with. >>dave: my goodness. can you imagine that? 7:26. let me show you the coastline, first time showing the hilton clearwater beach camera for you. honestly, it's gorgeous start to the day. i just took one word is made two. it's dry, a bit breezy but not a big deal. 61 at wesley chapel. 62 in haines city. 64 winter haven, frost proof, back to bradenton. it's 65. most of us are sitting in the mid 60s right now and next few days, 82 for a high today. weak little disturbance gives us clouds tomorrow at 78 and back to 80 for a high on thursday. very, very nice indeed. >>vanessa: absolutely no
this one is reported along mlk at macintosh and originally reported with intersection block janing. we do indeed see a vehicle there in the intersection. most of the impacts we're seeing to the westbound direction and that's where we're seeing most of the delays in the area. drivers heading that way westbound, plan extra time. moderate delays eastbound but if you want to plan the extra time there or avoid, looks like maybe sydney road, you can take that as a westbound work around or even hilbo more updates on this to come. this is the westbound direction we're checking out right now with backups we're seeing. so pretty notable through that intersection. we also have our chopper checking out. it was 78 at fowler avenue. lanes still blocked there, the left side, and you can see northbound directions, 275 looks like we're up a couple of minutes or so but not enough to budge those travel times out of the green. >>laura: thank you. the polls are open. they've been open for the last
election is going there and we'll talk about another important race on the ballot this morning between david jolly and charley crist. >>russell: and take advantage of a few election day freebies. >>reporter: certainly a very, very busy day at the polls but i'm busy, too. i'm taste testing. i bought these but i can tell you how to get this stuff, wonderful krispy kreme donuts wonderful krispy kreme donuts and all kinds of cool stuff this is

uld you? seriously..."vo: clear thinking... donald trump: "i know more about isis than the generals do, believe me."
vo: and calm judgment. donald trump: "and you can tell them to go fu_k themselves." vo: because all it takes is one wrong move. donald trump audio only: "i would bomb the sh_t out of them." vo: just one. my dad was a family doctor in pinellas county for 55 years. 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. and i'll take care of our veterans. i'm charlie crist and i approve this message because i'll put you, the people first. always have, and always will.

he can count on some southern states like tennessee and alabama, plus midwest states like nebraska and both north dakota and south dakota but they do not have the electoral votes that clinton can count on. it's imperative that trump win most, if not all of the swing states. now, florida is one of them. 29. ohio 18. north carolina 15. arizona has 11. that's a total of 111 electoral votes that are up for grabs. plus a >>laura: and the candidates have spent a lot of time in florida. we'll find out today if it paid off. there are still voters who have not cast a ballot just yet and jennifer epstein is catching up on the turnout for us. >>jennifer: it is a beautiful day in pinellas county. it is a beautiful day in america. it is election day and there are a lot of excited people here in st. petersburg. we're outside of robert's recreation center. we arrived 20 minutes before the

>>dave: 7:44 and a lovely tuesday morning. how about we haven't shown this to you in a bit. the hudson beach camera. i mean, boy, is it beautiful this morning. i want you to know in a little bit that we do have a little breeze along the immediate coastline and that's going to hang around for a few hours and then i expect it to subside for you later this afternoon. temperatures are very comfy
brooksville, then really mostly low to mid 60s from clearwater, brandon, bartow, winters haven, all the way across central florida. very, very comfy. upper 50s, there you go from brooksville to the mid 50s in jacksonville and even miami has gotten into the act with some of this little bit of drier air working its way in. now, here is the deal. over the course of the next few days, i think i nicer and nicer. we'll throw a few clouds in tomorrow's forecast but watch these forecast dew points and again, it measures the amount of surface moisture. the lower the number, the nicer it feels outside. drier it feels outside. dew points in the 50s. double thumbs up. but watch this. we're going to be draining those dew points, perhaps down into the 40s by this upcoming weekend. so even drier air is going to settle in. of course, it doesn't help the rain chances at all because we
just in general, it's that nice fall-like air going to settle in. high pressure in control now with partly cloudy and pleasant conditions. back to the west, you see this little dash line. this is an indication of a trough or an elongated area of low pressure. get some lift, get some shower activity. i look for this to rainfall apart before it makes its way here. so what's left is cloud cover. that's where i think the clouds will come from. shower but no significant rain expected and once that's gone, right back in the sunshine again as we get into thursday and then it's a veterans day and the weekend as well so clouds, sunshine, pleasant. 82 for a high temperature today which is where we were yesterday afternoon. then variable clouds tonight, i use the term comfy. 66 for the overnight low and again, i'm trying to push it here with the sprinkle just in general, mostly cloudy skies.
and that's about it for tomorrow afternoon. again, breezy along the coast this morning. we will go back to a light chop, more reasonable winds this afternoon. water temperatures in the mid 70s and your next seven days, i have more upper 70s for high temperatures than i do lower 80s and i think that may be the first time we've done that this fall season. i'm looking forward to it. >>vanessa: i like that. all right. we'll switch gears and get to roads at 7:47. we want to talk about new trouble spots in the palm harbor area, definitely seeing southbound 19 is one of those spots. crash reported at curlew road. it looks like it might be just north of curlew, maybe closer to county road 39 but lane blocks are reported and most of the delays in the southbound direction as you can see so make sure you're giving yourself at least five minutes or so out the door. if we head over to the river view area, we can see we have a
it will be affecting the northbound direction. watch out, please. use caution for the emergency crews that are on site. left lane is going to be blocked. we do want to remind drivers travelling through dover, we still have the intersection blockages reported here at mlk, junior boulevard and macintosh road. plan extra time. westbound was the area of most concern where we had the biggest delays. might be a direction to avoid still. all right. it is tuesday and as i mentioned bfore the break, we'll talk about the lines on the roadway. always a go ahead -- good refresher and we want to bring in officer roy. can we just address the face? we have very observant viewers and they'll want to know what's going on with this. >> good morning. happy tuesday. happy election day. yeah. how do you like that? beard for bucs. police officers usually don't get to have beards but it's a
and we get so many money and the chief allows us to grow beards. i'm in my rough, grown out stage right now. >>vanessa: it looks pretty good. dave will even say better than what he can do at this point. >> thank you. >>vanessa: so get your money's worth with that. meantime, we want to get to our topic now that we've addressed the beard. know your lines. i imagine you see all sorts of wrong doings on the road regarding this. >> the lines on us a lot of different things. they tell us when to go, when we can pass, when we don't pass, when we slow down, where we can't go and a lot of people are confused about that. how can you be confused? we know they're confused. one of the biggest things when we pull them over, they'll say, i have no idea i couldn't go through here. we'll try to clear that up for you today. when you can pass and when you can't pass f. you're driving
lanes of traffic, that means you can pass. as you can see in the graphic right there, there's a dotted line on your left-hand side and if you want to pass and it's clear to do so, you put on your blinker, you go over to that lane, accelerate, put on your blinker to go the other way and then you merge back in to traffic. a dotted dash means you can pass. if you have a solid line separating you and the traffic, that means you cannot pass. a solid line means no. it may look like you can p you say i've got plenty of room. but guys, that's been determined by traffic engineers and if you pass on a solid line, you're putting yourself in danger and other people also. and then also, if you're driving down the road and you have a dashed line and a solid line, if the dash line is on your side of the road, that means you can pass. okay? but if you have a solid line on your side of the road, don't pass. okay? so dash means go. solid means don't.
regarding the center left turn line. some folks might know this maybe when they're going to school, they hear it called the suicide lane. >> and that's a fantastic line. it's been kind of dubbed there the suicide lane. a lot of people get in the lane and they don't do a left-hand turn. they do it to merge into traffic or passing. as you see that the inside and the solid line on the outside, that lane is to pull in and make a left-hand turn. what that lane does, it frees up traffic, moving traffic to keep going so they don't have to stop for everyone making left-hand turns. please, if you use that lane, it's a great lane. only use it for left-hand turns. >>vanessa: i see it on kennedy boulevard all the time. >> guys, remember, if it's a
room to pass, please don't do it. it's not worth it. >>vanessa: always good advice. thanks, officer roy. good luck with te beard. i want to see it big and burly next week. okay? >> as big as i can get it. thank you very much. >>vanessa: we'll get to charley, speaking of men with beards. >>charley: speaking of big and burly, vanessa, i'm giving you an alternative to election day. >>vanessa: okay. >>charley: here she is. >>vanessa: fluffy. >>charley: that's elise, and gentlemen. stick around.
it is national animal shelter appreciation week. we are appreciating the folks at
bob buesing... on the record. he sues tax payers to cover the outrageous cost of a lavish courthouse. buesing files forclosures on homes critical to seniors. his law firm is accused of running up costs on a school district at the expense of our kids. trailing
in the polls, buesing attacks dana young. mr. buesing, will you do anything to win? anything? to beat this woman. c'mon in, pop pop! happy birthday! i survived a heart attack. i'm doing all i can to keep from having another one. and i'm taking brilinta. for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin. no more than one hundred milligrams as it affects how well it works. brilinta helps keep my platelets
heart attack. or dying from one. it worked better than plavix. >>don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers, a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery, and all medicines you take. >>talk to your doctor about brilinta. if you can't afford your medication, astra zeneca may be able to help. 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. >>charley: "good day." i'm charley belcher coming to you from winter haven this morning. just to show you on this election day, dogs and cats, living together in perfect harmony. perhaps we humans could take it happens to be national animal shelter appreciation week. lisa, we appreciate you. >> thank you. we appreciate you coming today. >>charley: lisa is at the humane society of polk county. you guys are on the front lines taking care of unwanted and trying to find homes, forever homes for dogs and cats and for your area for polk county. >> yes. we sure are. we take in around 1,300 animals
polk county's only no kill shelter and we hav some of the dogs in there. you'll hear them barking. they're problem children but we make a commitment to help them with their behaviors and any issues they might have so we have trainers on staff. dr. vargas will be here talking about accupuncture as well as aromatherapy. we want to encourage people to adopt from their shelters, get volunteer. maybe you want to be a foster mama for us or foster daddy. but we always can use the help. >>charley: nice. speaking of help, we'll tell you a little later today how you can help your local shelter, how you can help the humane society of polk county. we'll tell you how you should adopt, not shop, and we'll give you lots of cute little puppies and kitties to look at this fine day. if you want to go to my facebook page, you'll see me get attacked

military to do. chris matthews: talking of maybe using nuclear weapons, nobody wants to hear that about an american president. well, then, then why are we making them? a foreign policy expert went to advise donald trump, and three times he asked, "if we have them, why can't we use nuclear weapons?"
