an emotional weekend for the kennedy family and for a lot of family across the country. joining us now is ted kennedy's niece, kathleen kennedy townsend. good morning. >> hi, harry, how are you? >> i'm well. tell me your best memory of your
7:19 am
uncle ted. >> there are so many memories of him both political and personal. you know, i'm always touched by the fact that on the day that my cousin, teddy, who lost his leg, it was my wedding day and i had asked whether i should, you know, postpone my wedding because it was so traumatic for our family. he said in and he came and picked me up at my mother and father's house and walked me down the aisle and during the time talked about his own wedding and what a wonderful time that can be. and he was in the most tough, difficult moment for his own self, he was trying to be helpful and open and positive if me. and i think that is really a metaphor for what did he throughout his life. he's had a terrible, personal tough times and yet he was always out there helping others.
7:20 am
>> you're my age, which means you're old enough to remember when teddy and bobby and jfk were all alive as brothers together. >> well, what i really remember is them together is primarily in hyannis port when there was so many touch football games, which was great fun. or going sailing. i remember sailing with my uncle teddy and my father and we were in a race and i was -- with the three of us and i was the ballast, which for those who aren't the sale ares means i was just dead weight. just getting wet for four straight hours. but what i also remember during those times, not only sort of the fun family times, but obviously the sense of public life and that you gave back to the cup. my father was doing the
7:21 am
hearings, teddy ran for senate in 1962, we remember that, and he was just running on his name and i think my father, attorney general, because of his brother being president, but the point was you're given opportunities and then what do you make of those tumopportunities. an i think what we saw over the last few days is that people said ted kennedy, why not how you got to be senator, but when you were there, you did more than any other senator in american history. >> i've got 20 seconds left. does a kennedy belong in your uncle's old senate seat actual? actually, i have five seconds left. >> i think teddy kennedy gave much to our country. i think if my brother, joe, wanted to run, i think he's he'd put up a great race and be a great senator, but there t. there are a lot of people who can carry on senator kennedy's lega legacy. >> kathleen, thank you so much.

7:31 am
children about this. and we'll talk it to two fishermen who are very happy to be alive. they spent eight days hanging on to the boat which capsized in the gulf of mexico. it's being called a miracle at sea. but first, one of the many people who are grateful that jaycee dugard was found alive after being kidnapped 18 clears ago is sue bush, jaycee's former fifth grade teacher. she joins us from nevada. good morning. tell me about jaycee. what do you remember what she was like as an 11-year-old girl? >> jaycee was absolutely delightful. she was always happy, she had a smile on her face. sparkly eyes. well liked by all the kids in the room. >> it comes across in the pictures that we're looking at of her had, but, sue, what do you remember about that horrible day that she was kidnapped and how did you learn about her
7:32 am
kidnapping? >> well, you know, i actually learned about it after i arrived -- i was at school already, i telled to go tended early. and somewhere between 8:00 or 9:00, i got the call to come down to the office and that's when i found out about jaycee. and i just want to let you and everybody and jaycee know that the entire community, her family, her friends, her classmates, her teacher, never, ever forgot her or gave up the hope that she would come back some day. >> so this day is just wonderful news after waiting 18 years. >> oh, absolutely. >> but, sue, what do you remember telling your students about this whole kidnapping case and what did the students say about her abduction? >> a lot of the kids already knew about it out on the yard because some of the children had actually witnessed the abduction because they were on the way to the same bus stop.
7:33 am
>> what did they say about what they saw? like how did jaycee react to being snatched? >> jaycee did everything she was supposed to do. she screamed and she kicked. we had had a d.a.r.e. training weeks prior and she did exactly what she was supposed to do that morning. she fought off her attackers. >> amazing. sue bush, thank you for sharing your memory and your thoughts with us. want to turn to our other guests. robin tax is a former wlaenks county deputy district attorney and the author of predator respect and child molesters. first of all, let's talk about the staff. how many registered sex offen r offenders are out there? there. >> there are about 500,000 registered sex offenders actually out there. that's only the people that are actually registered.
7:34 am
those aren't the people who are sex offenders who have yet to be convicted or awaiting trial or have never everyone ben been ar. so the numbers are a little misleading. >> what's the number who actually slip through the cracks then? >> there is about 100,000 people that slip through the cracks. and that means that they fail to register. those are ones that we though about and who aren't keeping up with what they're supposed to do who aren't registering or maintaining their address. >> so there's so many out there. parents are probably panicking right now hearing these numbers. what's the first step a parent should take to keep their kids safe? >> as i mention in my book, i talk about how we should take advantage of teachable moments. we should look at an opportunity, a silver lining in the case of jaycee, and remember that we really need to have the safety conversations with our kids all the time. but in addition, the registered sex offender list is something that everybody can access. it's free, it's easy, you you
7:35 am
can google sex offender and it's right there. and look by address. and everyone should look to see who is living in their neighborhood, who is living near their schools, who is living near their grand pashtss' homes or caretakers homes and not just look at the list as, okay, these are people that exist, but actually go into the list, take a glance at the picture, be familiar with who you may be looking for, but also look at the crime for which they're convicted. many times the registry will have on the list what is actually the case in phillip garrido's situation that it was listed that he had been convicted in a prior case for kidnap and for on rape. and if you have that rape there, this is something different than just unlawful sex or statutory rape situation. this is someone swwho is a violt predator. >> if a child is being snatched, what do you tell your child that he or she should do? >> exactly what jaycee did did, the screaming and kicking is definitely something you want to do. you want to do something to put
7:36 am
off the at takingers and yell for help. but not just help with the word help, but use the word fire. and at all costs to try not to get into the car if at all possible. everything's about buying time, not necessarily winning the fight. it's giving you a moment maybe gouging out with keys or using your fingers or taking an elbow to push someone away just to buy that couple extra seconds to run away. >> robin sax, thank you so much. now let's head back to new york and get another check of the weather and say good morning to ira joe fisher. good morning. good morning. well, you'll see some sunny skies and hot temperatures in interior california. in the nation's middle, it will it will feel like the last day of august or something. and some showers will bub bell up over the rockies and it will continue to be rather soggy in the southeastern part of the country. but from the tennessee valley into the great lakes and extending over into the

7:44 am

8:05 am
step by step, like being on mars. this is a brand nuf situation. it's never happened before. 18 years being gone like this, it's pretty remarkable. >> how has the trance sis been? we talked about that a little bit this morning with an expert, how hard it will be for jaycee and her two daughters who never knew anything about this existence in captivity to kind of get back into society. >> it's going to take a long time. they thought jaycee was her sister. they didn't realize that she had been kidnapped and the national center for missing children is helping coach her and bringing people into help. it will take long time. >> what is their emotional state, what did she tell you? >> i think the girls are okay. they were attacheded to him. they cried when this happened. it's like it's going to take a long time. people say when can you see them. whenly see them? it may be a long time. they don't know who i am. i'd probably scare them.

8:07 am
she probably wouldn't have made it because she's feisty. jaycee just bonded with this guy and they actually cried when he was captured. so they accepted it. after 18 years, you know, we had her 11 year, they had her 18 year, so they were a family. people have to realize, i don't know how he treated her or whatever, but they were attached to each other. >> and now she's back with her real family and your daughter and jaycee's mother, terry, are changing their lives completely to help her. >> yes. and my wife is the happiest ever in the world right now. >> she's not going back to work is this. >> no. eventually. my daughter is not going to college. she cancel this had semester. >> so they'll dedicate their live 1/00% to jaycee and those girls. >> correct. >> they need that extra attention. >> oh, yeah. she did say the girls were smart. i asked her how are the girls and she goes they're intel xweptd, they're smart. they didn't go to school, but they're okay. they're shy, they're clingy, but

8:34 am
high school football coach on trial for the death 6 one of his players in the summer heat. jury selection begins here in louisville today, but also this case will be putting part of football's culture on trial. whipping a team into shape. outside jason stinson's home, dozens of his supporters rally on the eve of the head coach's unprecedented trial. across town at a local sunday football game, teams competed, parents debated. should a local coach go to prison pot death of one of his players? >> football is a rough sport and coaches drive their kids hard. >> not a lot of kids that will say i got to stop right now and have a drink of water if the coach doesn't allow it. >> reporter: a year ago go this month, sophomore mac gilpin died from complications of heat stroke. he had run wind sprints until he dropped on a hot summer day. but the player's father blames coach stinson for his 15-year-old's death. >> because it was totally preventable and he was in
8:35 am
charge. >> reporter: stinson has denied being reckless. >> one thing people can't forget in this whole situation is i lost one of my boys that day. >> reporter: but even after gilpin clapped, witnesses say other players asked for water and coach stinson called them cowards. >> this is about an adult human being who had training who was responsible for the health and welfare of a child. >> reporter: stinson faces two charges, rec wls homicide, and endangerment, potentially five years behind prison -- some prison. his lawyers will accident the death was a terrible accident, but across america, coacheses and parents are be watching. >> mark strassmann live with us from louisville. a lot of soul searching going on and a lot of people wondering just how this is going to turn out. joining us now is one of coach stinson's friends, rodney dougherty. good morning, sir. >> good morning. >> how is coach stinson feeling on the eve of this trial?

8:37 am
everybody now knows that you have to keep these kids hydrated. i guess i'm wondering why he would withhold liquids on a day when you're practicing in the 90 degree heat. >> water was withheld, harry. most of those boys has four to five water breaks that day. that's misreported. people who reported that were only there for a few minutes of the practice. >> does he feel like -- does the coach feel like he's being wrongly accused or being made a scapegoat or a target? >> oh, absolutely. this is a first for football. this is no longer about a coach. they're after the game of football at this point. >> and in terms of the community, what is your sense of how the community is responding to this? >> well, there's been quite a
8:38 am
bit of support for him. we've been able to raise about $90,000 to help him with his legal expenses. when you hear that the community is divided, you assume that that's a 50/50 division, but that's just not the case. the majority that are behind stinson is much larger than that. >> does coach stinson want to go back to coaching? >> he has said that if he's acquitted he does want to return to coaching. >> and he used to be in professional life and was not in the school system. he made a specific decision to become a coach, is that not correct? >> that is correct. he was working for xerox and felt he had a call from the lord to go mentor young men and that's why he ended up coaching football and teaching. >> it will be very interesting as this trial plays out. we thank you, rodney, very much for taking the time to speak with us. >> thank you, sir.
