cases of enterovirus? >> we have seen cases of suspected enterovirus and there has been confirmed cases verified by the cdc. >> most of the cases we're seeing with children. why is that? >> first of all entire row virus is -- enterovirus is a common vie are you. eight spread throughout the year. it's not necessarily a new class of virus by any means. children get it more frequently than adults for the same reason kids tend to get sickly more quickly than adults do they have young immune systems and haven't been exposed to as many diseases in their life. >> we're seeing the symptoms that are more like colds or someone experiencing a respiratory attack. for very nervous parents seeing all these stories in the news, when should they get their child to a hospital or a doctor? >> it's important to know most entire row virus cases -- enterovirus cases are mild. the recommendations to seek out medical care would be the same. that is, worsening problems
breathing, significant difficulty with breathing, or other medical problems that would suggest this is not the average cold. >> how do you test for enterovirus to make sure it is not the average cold or some other type of flu virus? >> well, you can test for some viruses. however, the care for most of these viruses is the same. it's supportive. it's hydration. it's supportive of the respiratory tract or the breathing. there are ways to confirm enterovirus but that takes weeks through the cdc and it's not very practical. furthermore, it doesn't really help treat the patient. >> we know that hand washing is very important, but is enterovirus only something that affects children or should adults be worried as well? >> it can be spread to adults and adults and children alike can get intoar row virus and -- enterovirus and do throughout the year. >> doctor, thank you very much for speaking with us. >> thank you. in the news this afternoon, five people are being treated in the hospital because of an

they have the momentum for the first time in the series. they've got to carry it against the pitcher in ryan vogelsong that they've beaten two times this year. >> reporter: the nats starting pitchers have had very strong outings in the first three games hoping for the same behind gio gonzalez. but what do you think about that pitching macup? >> with gio you saw a pitcher get stronger down the stretch. also he's a pretty emotional pitcher. can he reign. emotions in on the -- rein the emotion ns ion the road. ryan vogelsong, the nationals builted him around. i wouldn't be shocked if they busted out the bats to get this series back to d.c. for deciding game five. >> reporter: give me some of your keys for the nats to get this "w"? >> i think first of all if gio can just settle down. settle down. get into a rhythm and become the fourth starting pitcher on the staff to have a solid start. if he doesn't, they'll have to
go to the bullpen. strasburg would even be available if he got knocked out early in this ballgame. i think that and i also think get on vogelsong early. you have confidence. you don't want to fall into a situation where it's five innings and you're still scoreless and you fall back into the mentality, uh-oh, we're having trouble scoring runs. get it early and often. >> reporter: game four coming up tonight here at at&t park. holden kushner, i'm kristen berset. we'll see you late they are evening but for now back to you in the studio. >> there's still a reason to show your natitude. you can upload photos to our facebook page or tweet us

her feet. nice story. we have light showers around right now. hopefully it will clear the air a little bit because the allergy numbers have come in. not a good day for allergy sufferers. in fact the weed pollen is in the high category. everything else is moderate. when we come back, we'll talk about how long these light showers are going to last, what you can expect for the evening and what about the weekend? we've got some issues to talk b. we'll do it in just a fe
you were in the spotlight. you were in this chair, a tv news anchor. but i've got to say action it was not part of your public narrative after the initial crime happened. so people are surprised to hear this about you. >> it was in 1975 and i had the first television talk show on wtbr, channel 6. i did a show on sexual assault. you think it's not talked about now. can you imagine in 1975. two women who had been raped, hundreds of calls afterwards. a few days later i was staying over the hotel to do one live show and taped three shows so i could go home for christmas. came back into the room, 11:00. a man was there with a gloved hand, tried to strangle me. then i put a gun to my head and he said okay, cute talk show host, what do you do with a gun at your head. i never thought about that. >> he was a stalker as well as
a rapist because he knew who you were. >> he had seen the television show and was going to teach me a lesson of a lifetime. finally after a night of horror, he drug me back to that window, right out to the parking deck with a getaway car waiting. again with that gun he said, i know who you are. i know where you live. and i promise i'll kill you if you tell. and that's the dagger of fear. if it's a father that says to a child if you don't let me do it to you, imdee it to the rest of the children or a date rape. the moment he was out that window, i called the police and security and he was never found. >> the book "fear to freedom ," you've got to get over that fear and being secret. you'll be at george mason university. >> yes. >> this kit in front of us is part of what's happening in combating sexual violence on campus. tell us about it. >> i would be happy to. fear to freedom, the number two stands for the fact that every two minutes someone is sexually assaulted in our country. did you know that one in five female women students will be sexually assaulted during the
four years? so to0g9amnight we are putting together these wonderful 350 fear to freedom kits that will go to inova hospital. we have over 300 george mason students that will be gathered together to assemble the kits. and our challenge to them is to be the change. our challenge to them is to restore the joy. and it will be an exciting night. it's an uplifting event but what we want to do is restore and redeem those sexually assaulted, bringing them hope and healing because those that go to the hospital don't realize all of their clothes have to be kept for evidence because of the exam. we have sweat pants and t-shirt and a toy for the children. this is our bear for those 12 years and younger. this bear is used not only for comfort for those that are there but also help them with the counseling so they might truly be able to move from fear to freedom. >> rosemary, thank you very
much for sharing your story and making this part of your lifelong effort to move us from fear to freedom. >> thank so you much. >> you're welcome. let's go to howard with an update on the forecast. >> wave got light sprinkles, light showers moving through now. go have a threat for heavier showers as we get into the evening hours, maybe even some thunder. that's in the midwest coming across the appalachians. right now light sprinkles and light showers have developed over the last hour to 90 minutes. i think they'll only be around for one to two hours before we get a break. southern maryland we're seeing the showers wind down. what you'll notice into southern prince george's county, 301 as you get north of the line with charles county coming out of waldorf, the showers are there but south they're not. more moderate showers in and around parts of montgomery, fairfax, loudoun county. southern fairfax starting to clear out a little bit. then you go back toward the shenandoah valley north toward hagerstown. you still have the showers to go through to the north. we'll be in and out of it here. light showers early. some breaks still mostly
cloudy. lower 70s. wishful thinking. some will stay in the 60s at this point with south winds 10 to 15. better chance for shower and storms tonight but it will clear out late. that should leave us in good shape to see the eclipse tomorrow morning. the numbers, the partial shadow, when the earth is blocking the rays of the sun to the moon. it starts at 4:15, the partial one. the total is about 6:15. so just get to a high point, look west. we'll be fighting the sunrise because that's at 7:11. temperatures struggling underneept the cloud cover and those -- underneath the cloud cover and those showers. we're at 66 in washington right now. the light rain showers, a south, southwesterly wind at 13 miles an hour. so some showers, maybe some storms around this evening. after dark clearing out overnight. the 75 is what i was thinking this morning but with the midday showers, we'll lucky to get to 72. 73. 50s and 60s tonight. tomorrow breezy and warm, mid- 70s. a few clouds in the afternoon
thursday, still nice, 72. friday the clouds thicken up. some showers, could even be one or two early. better chance in the afternoon and evening. sunday looks a little worse than saturday with showers sunday and only in the mid-60s. redskins fans, stick around. we have something you need to we have something you need to know and it's all co in cases of rape and incest, just like the right-wing republicans in congress. they want to overturn roe v. wade. so does she. "i think roe v. wade should be overturned." barbara comstock even voted with right-wing republicans to require women seeking an abortion to undergo transvaginal ultrasounds. that's all i need to know.
dollars to block regulation of the energy markets... so they could raise utility rates. then got even worse. "thousands lost their jobs and life savings." "the former leaders of enron head to prison." enron's ed gillespie. the million dollar lobbyist who put enron ahead of you. redskins fans could use something to laugh about after last night's game. gton post" e columnist rick ?ielder has just the ticket -- schneider has just the ticket. he's out with 100 things redskins fans should do before they die. you say the name controversy has nothing to do with honoring native americans. >> not really.
the 1930's was the height of american indian popular vote around the area. they were named after the boston braves where they were first starting. football teams often stole the baseball teams' names. then they moved over to the red sox stadium. they wanted to keep the same mascot so they worked it that way. it wasn't intentionally about the indians in the beginning of it. >> in 30 years of covering this team, some of the more interesting things you've collected and reported on, rfk stadium was not going to be rfk. it was going to be lbj? >> the last second political payback. lbj and rfk did not get along. lbj would not approve the grounds maintenance. the secretary of the interior where the park sits doesn't need approval from the. he he he the president. he wanted it named after them. last secretary as they get ready to go to the nixon inauguration, they call the name in and it's all done. >> something you said at the beginning of the book, as big a deal as the skins are now with fans, they weren't that much till vince lombardi came as the coach in '69.
>> pretty much. they had a lot of success when they first came from '37. won a couple of titles but they had a lot of bad teams for many years. lombardi brought back the pride and hope. he had barely a winning season and passed away. george allen follows. things race from there. lombardi was really the beginning of what the franchise is now. >> when we think of the franchise being something great, we always think of joe gibbs. he was almost out after an 0-3 start. >> cook wanted to fire him. who is this go. then you go to 0-5. it's really intense. >> gruden is lucky. >> gruden is hanging in there. >> he's a good coach. you have one other thing, the last thing do you before you die is basically self- protection if you go into eagles territory with anything that suggests cause from the d.c. area. >> oh, yeah. i know people who actually have brought eagles gear and put it on the dash of their cars so their cars didn't get wrecked in the parking lot. the last thing before you die because you may die is wear your redskins jersey there glit' a great -- there.
