Ten minutes after 5 AM it's the early edition WW LR's news on this eighth of may 2005. Seeing pass. Did is he gee are you. Well I guess it would be appropriate at this time for me to say welcome. To fry it and. I'll sleep again. Always. And I figure attack. Roll yeah. That's good will it go man. Ready for the weekend yes I am ready for a little Mother's Day celebration all ready for that too. The weekend that we. Under mama. All weekend long. But what we do. Mama. Well it would be without pop up. Yes that's just for starters. Yes indeed some Mother's Day weekend the most popular. Weekends. The year. You dad and specifically the most popular they have beaten on Mother's Day restaurants do more business on this day by far. Any of their day in the year. Why do you think that waiting everybody take mom out from. I think. Either you don't wanna be in the kitchen. Although some of the people we doctors said yeah they're gonna have mom over in the are gonna call for her and you know with a barbecue or whatever so that's not a bad idea but I. I just sanctity it's it's like you know what. I don't know this stay away from the kitchen. The challenge though is you know everybody's going ninety's now you may wanna go to a restaurant that takes reservations but there are fewer and fewer of them. Fewer restaurants I don't that is they're getting out of the reservation business not your highest and restaurants still take reservations. So you are willing to spend. Now your next car payment take mama to eat then you can probably find a place to take reservations at this point the problem real take him. So that year and stuck with the fact you're going to take mama to eat somewhere where you're going to have to wait. Some curious if anyone has a trick or secret war. Because you know you know LaMont the Al frustrated in. Angry not. You're waiting an hour and half olives like ours to our guys able maybe that he did the bars all filled up so you they'd just crammed in the symbol corner. And on they know they'll set up tables outside on our ad tables where they go out and I mean it gets tight they add as many tables they can almost every restaurant on the they can be with in the and a well narrowly with them on message case that well. And you know you we've talked about some of the high end places where ER you're gonna easily drop our guard Raymond or whatever but then you know what. I guess what would you say most we will go to the family kind of spots you know our young. I think of them like the olive garden and places like that you know now. Well I mean the nice thing is that we have more restaurants than anywhere else in the country so you have more choices yeah you've been through local. Yeah absolutely because well whether it's the chains whether it's fancies Manzi places whether it's. The out local neighborhood you know and a all the wall whatever it is. We are more restaurants here per capita than just about anywhere else in the world and so you have lots options stake mama but everyone's taken mama so it just kind of the routine you active except the fact. That is going to be long waits and if you wanting mom out on Mother's Day out in if you earlier. You probably have a better. Go in late in the afternoon or evening. Probably not as crowded but it stale anyway you slice it we're gonna go out Saturday night and try to beat the crap it's a I don't know if that's gonna work all I had a mom school that you got a cane league Saturday night that it can be as bad as Sunday hybrid and that's the busiest in the idea. Interesting I have a fact sheet right here. It in my little. That tells me. What's going on with mothers in the United States the US census. Provide. What percentage of adult women use. Our month and have had children. But they've between the ages fifteen and 5015. And fifty the doctors are currently runs a little it would only. Actually had a child. 50%. More than 60% of all our guy our month. Thrown about the zone debt six in ten. Women from so that the Lama 75. Million. I wonder what those numbers like us back in the day you know. When I say back in the day may be way back in the day. And yet not. Of course senses goes round and dealers that's been around a long long done that I haven't. Ernie view this family searches on the line you can almost it's on an early census record. That one year. It's an SS yeah signed. But actually you know before we had birth control available on yeah planning Pam I don't know you know it is. Or maybe there were there might have been more moms and I don't know what that means as 40% of women never have killed while luster to. 60% have its 40%. That's. Five million moms in the united I'm gonna try to get that reservation right now and that 95 million kids how they thought a 35 million women 95 million kids they have. Mcdonalds and Burger King we have more of them per capita here than almost anywhere else I don't know dive for McDonald's. Number two for bird. Folks why do you think. That we are in the top five states are both of the QB. That's the biggest as mcdonalds and bird while their more of them this year than almost anywhere else to explain it to an executive will talk about fifteen minutes more first WW out. AM out of a back on your Mother's Day weekend forecast. And sports with Steve Geller is right after the nets on present Texas today seventy eights by Seve says this is the south businesses are aware that we aren't as health conscious people. As and other places supply and demand maybe I guess that's part of the reason that we have the fifth most McDonald's per capita of anywhere in the country. And the Sackett most burger king's love fast food here. That's dude loves Oz. Bally's love it. In terms of waste another person that that would explain why gain a quarter ended today when I hope he gets it here Eden a quarter pounder every day. That wouldn't Abbie help them as your forecast. We'll see highs in the upper eighties for the next several days at 10% rain chance today highs near 86. There were up to 87 for a high on Saturday and Sunday taking mom out. Looks like the rain chances will be float just 10% both after earnings and pinpoint forecast center I'm the brawl just larva tell. Start now a little warmer a little more muggy 73 at the lake front 169 mostly cloudy at the airport encounter clouds over Slidell 62 degrees we have the Mother's Day fat. She's here to keep sharing little tidbits of information to and learn more about. Who are the mothers of our community Carty told 60%. Of American women in childbearing age and that starts in just to victory include everyone from fifteen to 5060%. Women have children here's the thing though the woman who don't have children. Are most likely to be those or in managerial. Or professional occupation. Women age forty to fifty in 2014. Who weren't managerial professional occupations. More likely to be childless. Than women in other occupations. They're working a lot less likely to have kids. That's for the other 40% mostly it Steve Geller sit in the big sports here this morning with all we need to know on this Friday morning hey Steve. Yes indeed good morning everybody the cowboys real big big free agent fish that might make their offensive line impenetrable. Undrafted first round Alice Leo Collins has chosen to bring his talents to Dallas. I guarantee you this I want to do this organization everything that I have and more. This is going to be the best off with some minded enough through history mark my words Collins agreed upon a three year deal that is fully guaranteed. Well patriots quarterback Tom Brady with a guest speaker at Salem State College. And even though it was an event for fans veteran sportscaster Jim Gray could not ignore the jarring elephant in the room. What is your reaction time. To the Ted Wells report. Yeah I can usually say those famous. I don't have. Really any reaction it's only been thirty hours had much time to digest it fully but when I do I'll be sure to let you know I feel about it. Well Chris Paul worked out on the court yesterday as he tries to return from a strained left hamstring it's not known whether he can play for the clippers in game three against the rockets tonight. After missing the first two games of the conference semi final series. The teams are tied 11. After a split in Houston. The LA she softball team lost its opening game of the SEC tournament 7 o'clock at Tennessee and has been knocked out of the event. He mother's efforts lost seven at six and Oklahoma City disease now begin a four game series in Memphis. And Alex Rodriguez. It is 661. Home run the past Willie Mays for fourth on the all time list. The solo blast hopes the New York Yankees beat the Orioles four to three. A-Rod hit seven home runs this season after missing all of last year due to a suspension for violating Major League baseball's policy on performance enhancing substances. Today a war on sports talk with former Notre Dame quarterback ever goals and make LSU a legitimate national title contender. For the tigers better off sticking with who date passed. Then at 630 have a choice LSU baseball begins a three game series vs Missouri. On 870 AM or sports talk continues a 1053 WWL let them. I'm Steve Geller and that is your early morning look at sports. Like when a board they've gone Ron Amadon with yeah on your radio on Friday mornings a lab Collins goes to Dallas. And the cowboys do not let him leave without signing a contract one point 65 million dollars. Over the next three years a far cry from the approximately ten million he probably would have gotten had he been drafted in the first round is expected. Here's a guy who is on the top of his game who is on top of the world is expecting to be getting it ten million dollar payday. Patrick police. One talked to him about the murder of his pregnant ex girlfriend next thing you know he's not drafted and now he ends up getting one point 65. Vs ten million dollars so many twists and turns and angles in this. A lot of people are angry mean he hasn't been. Cleared of wrongdoing but he's not been named a suspect either so we don't know where this investigation goes by it. We know it lost a lot of money. Yet I will say watching the press conference seeing him his mom even Jerry Jones getting really emotional. I feel bad for the kid and I know you know the situation at hand it's it's a terrible situation. Obviously I feel for the day and leave that loss the girl and the child. Like Tom Leo Collins dream. Pat is really being crushed of him getting drafted in the first round after putting and all this work never getting to hear his name called on draft day but hum. Eighth and as if he had nothing to do with this martyr right it really is. You know so unfortunate for him. Obviously that the real tragedy here's the to death by. When you take a step back and look at it from the sports world perspective. You know just being someone who knew someone who got murdered Kaplan as you know anything about it can cost you. Eight point 35 million dollars it's just odd to me that no one wanted to touch him. In that three day process of the draft but now suddenly. I guess after he spoke with Baton Rouge police. And it seemed like he was very forthcoming and has now daddy's not the father of the dead baby and he passed a lie detector test that. Suddenly now the interest was from all 32 teams and you know what Bobby does that advance the rich get richer the best offensive line in the league it's now the best offensive. Linemen in this year's draft. South could be extra scary diseases. Great point right thank you Steve talking about when he Imus more sport we'll talk more about Tom Brady is avoiding the question. At the news for the stand it that's your forecast. For Mother's Day weekend your comments after this it's what whether like for moms today. Let's look at into the weekend it is going to stay warm 86 for hi later today partly cloudy skies and the afternoon I'd 10% chance just to stray shower or storm. Closer I dropped down to 65 north of Italy and that's to be on the South Shore. Then upper eighties both Saturday and Sunday expected it is going to be a warm weekend and with that just to 10% chance for showers or storms. 37 minutes after 5 AM at the early edition WWL first news it's may it's the a its 2015. And who lied celebrate we've made it thirteen GI. App well now happy. Rye A today. Get out defeated a couple. Everybody's jumping around. At this point in time. He jumps and stuff but I get shot down on the matter where you are you're driving in your seat number no one else actually jump around. Time it's Friday it's Mother's Day weekend went to get all of that celebrating the arrival of the weekend yes. And I you know I have this. Fact sheet right here from light. Opera the US census here it goes. Not that these jobs are not on this but will there. And let you told me everything my dad's almost responded. So here's my taxi Mary told views that 60% of American women have children at some point between ages fifteen and fifty. Who else told you that the women most. Likely to not have children are those tours and managerial or professional occupation. Hot. So who the 40% while almost all of them are women who are in managerial. Or professional occupations. And it goes into. Commit their lives their careers. Rather than having a family businesses or to take over and mom duties right now there are others who don't have it but most of them that and then. So how many kids you Whitman well the numbers drop. Of the 75 million women who have acted there in 95 million children. So all. The number of women who only have one child one has double. From 1976. To today so the last forty years. A dramatic drop in the number of women who have multiple children while it's certainly news thing I can add my I want them to you out. You're their run a government planners on the now this isn't it uses volunteer yes one and done one and done very increasing number of women in the NC. Is that we have a five million moms at 95 million kids. The very small number who have multiple children as you go off then the person dropped to the idea or or way down. Now mommy I mean unique company. I went larnaca children. And a passel. I've just heard that word over the here which it has all the guys out that you needed to fit almost as Mike Castle my canceled. You've got some waving a NASA now so that's a good good then why do you think that it's more and more women having one. All them we of this story every year that tells us that it costs. I'll like close to a million box with a raise a kid from bay birthday eighteenth. You know I got to keep resentment that its most are young age you know you're getting but yeah album review those stories and people go and I. Maybe one and we do. Like good money I think apply yeah I do goes a lot of new and vote. Six minutes and it's that wire more women than ever before only having one child. One and done a news here's a woman who has two children in Paterson, New Jersey will weird story you heard about this woman no she had a set of twins. With different dad. I judge ruled this week in the paternity case that the man for whom the twins' mother sought out sport as to pay for one. Of the children. Because a DNA tests showed that he was the father of one grand but not the father. The I never heard of this reform it is rare for a woman to give birth to twins from different ads. I would say it's a rare first of all because it's rare for a woman to. Participate in activities to get pregnant while it yeah different men that close together now he had to do it. In rapid succession. I'm resigned so yeah guide it happened. And it says quote it can happen when the woman has sexual intercourse with two men. In the same cycle Oka and to look for eggs are fertilized separately by each man are so it actually there's about a two week window that this could have happened. There are born on the same day San. Diego and move. Wonder how this guy you know like non paying for child support. Other when I want you on the very ordered paternity test them yeah I'm sure that it was standard procedures she says yes the pace after that and are you must have summaries and knew that the court orders a paternity test. And it comes back churn up yours ones now. What cops. I go to the movies this weekend the top five our vendors age of all front period seven the age of Adeline Paul block mock up to and home. That's what's currently in that the eight Terry is that we have two big new movies opening night trying to steal. Yeah avengers at least a little bit of it hot pursuit. Reese Witherspoon and Sophia very GAAP. In this action comedy. Raided. Hours rating PG thirty could be a Hollywood south there. Now that this not this amount they were reasons near Texas and you don't want make. We could debate I think it would at least partially partially orca. Either way they are two of the hottest women in Hollywood get together. Recommitment to cop. And Sophia event Garang is not a chance and then I am wacky and wild. Man yeah as the trials and escapade are. I also opening is the at a high school reunion to me travels to Los Angeles to track down the most popular guy from graduating class in instantly go every year and David will either those movies. Not the offenders off of the top bond not a chance. He dolls. Vendors will be in Monroe ago. Come Monday morning fours acting in the bank is there to about twenty minutes more first as Chris Miller joins SP I would south. With a bill that certain getting some traction that may limit how much Hollywood south can pay out and tax credits. But not get rid of the program. Let's go live and directed it and went forecast and I figured morning. This meteorologist Laura but now aren't out I'm doing well it's Friday now right it's Mother's Day weekend exactly I got a kid with a big graduation ceremony this morning and since we began that she asked that way have a good time and the weather's definitely coop. It's going to be perfect you know I had a lot of people you know at this time eerie kind of concerned about that that kind of stuff you know it is graduation season and his party sees a Mother's Day kind gone out as you don't want rain around and it's not going to be a problem all the way through the weekend. Really just does aid that we may want to topple our here or there. And about the temperatures in the united it is kind of warm it is a little Mikey at night that was coming right and I we can't and I know at this time meteors it does feel just keep it up or high eighth. Height rather be up for eight next couple days okay it's now part near ninety back then get the money man and it at that kind warm. That's to be expected what's not expected is the tropical storm this time of year or sub tropical storm you know it's actually not bad cop. I it's really looking back we have subtropical storms tropical storms in 2007200820092012. In men OK so maybe not that I comically out honey yeah it's funny people's memories you know kind of you know that's. How Eric if he's in that circle and got all the time yet I don't have any bearing on what the rest of the fees it will rain doesn't mean it's going to be a bad seat and it. Really just means we had an early. As the bell because it can happen in December outlets this thing's name. On up on a trop not and on up on. Well right having technically the pronunciation is on the pan out and so is going to stake the coast of South Carolina for the next day your tooth can it take its time. Before it heads in it's in South Carolina over the weekend Saturday nights early Sunday morning. I rights and not an all threat to the gulf odd at all just kind of an interesting things as Bristol gonna go bailout yet. There's subtropical storm over the that that that could become a hurricane it. It doesn't look like it winds kind of 4045 miles an hour this morning they briefly breached a few gusts of fifty miles per hour. And then a B movie and Lynn says squalls for that area at their babies to people traveling. To the north or South Carolina coast you know for minors under the engine yet at the prettiest there but just some squalls some higher surf and seas that kind of thing for them. They go folks not that uncommon and not anywhere near us. That's how you know both good but again both good indeed. You don't you we were talk again this week about the monkey named Hartley and I knew in Japan all of that allowed everybody but a lot of people were offended and is to actually set OK maybe we won't name the new baby monkey Charlotte in the same week that we found out that the new royal princess in England. Was named Charles ROK but the zoo is standing its grass and it they will keep the name Charlotte after all officials settled in national debate in Japan. About whether calling the monkey Charlotte defends its British royal namesake the officials said today they will stick to the first name dime because. There's no protest from the British royal family. I they would ever think that's silly thing for them all up in arms about you know that you're going to be a lot of shortly its name practice appointees but I don't mind that. Yeah humans animals and all kind of stuff I have a feeling Charlotte's gonna be a huge name yet. Sense of confidence. Prince in the princess or the king earned him the queen and looking yet. Speaking to be nobody called demand that now this is horrible right that I we're gonna going to I don't know monkey Laura for years. I set the ones that have felt like prince William and princess Kate would have a good humor about it. And obviously they probably have other things going on in their lives rather than worry about a month he had to the net like a baby you we're happy to be at home and that aren't any new mother's gonna be like look I don't care what's going on it if I just got it through these next couple of months have. I like it at night I think it. OK at that. And leave you with a quick what people from beaver West Virginia where Matt is in jail after authorities say he foiled his fellow robbery. He accidentally pepper sprayed in the south who want to call if you look. Committing the robbery. The 43 year old Michael Kevin Madden as of shady spring was arrested for attempted robbery authorities say he went into a pharmacy in beaver. On Tuesday wearing full camouflage and a paint ball mask. He started pepper spraying the area and an effort to take down employees but was holding it backwards. Oops eighth straight toward him and he walked right into the cloud of peppers.

But they're not that little red not how we use race at the channel line up that nozzle with the little red dot now on their hands if.

He sets from the initial phone call from team owner Jerry Jones he was given a sense of comfort. I was the first. Our relief pro life someone has seen before one out somebody understood the guys I went back to school must see news because I want to be some distrust him. The cowboys have fully guaranteed Collins three year one point 65 million dollar deal. Speaking at an event at Salem State College patriots quarterback Tom Brady a short to Massachusetts faithful that the team's Super Bowl victory was not tainted. In the wake of the world's report released this week. Brady didn't want to respond to the report yet it was that's when he be ready to hopefully sound. Hopefully soon there's still a process that's going forth right now and you comment on the process whenever it happens it happens and I'll certainly won't be very comfortable. And how I feel about the statements that make us. Chris Paul worked out on the court yesterday which is a positive sign in his struggle to overcome a strained left hamstring.
