Now I am I gotta tell you now it's hard to blame though it might meters expired and I'm not upset about this report at all and now actually thanked him hey.

Waiting get out till June here we start in August or early August lot of schools start like just two weeks and get out in early may. Oh. All the schools ever conditioning and now but the the issue is that'll buses apparently an all American Media. And some of the parents behind this effort for nine start the school year. Later are saying. Year out we just have too many buses that are in the current. They want the latest school but then. Your push in school ended June and then at the end of the areas they went let's stop school early. And he's just now it's shortening the school year and the superintendent and have already good point to us yesterday said. These tests that determine everything now. Are in March if we start school later. Then we're putting our students at a disadvantage compared to the students and other parishes that start early. So he was saying Israel and its dubious state decision not a parent model cars that local thing no I understand so we shall see as this develops if any parishes Tuesday you know what you're right. We've been doing it wrong now. Decades decades and as if it's let's start school like the rest of the nation in September.

Get no support from me very bad Phillies team not a single run on the board. No and he was deathly deal and then it was good to see him keep his composure even though the one run. He gave up was eighth solo shot to the opposing pitcher take care yet have a he went six innings you know striking out six guys even in his second back got to hit so has also his first Major League hit the. Alone and on with it right so it's a both pitchers get on base. Given a home run to the opposing it is. Iron right so better luck next time Aaron Nolan and hopefully building did team around him. Seth Curry yeah. Yes now playing for the Alec hands in the summer league brother of staff. Carry you know that'd be confusing around passed sentence that happens that assassins that's that's that I mean. The parents had to make some mop they had human they crime the only.

The Italians did hold on don't even though he was tearing it up in the summer. Yet he was a free agent and opted to go to Sacramento Kings were up a deadly have a lot more playing time opportunities and it would appear in New Orleans. But yes I guess he benefited the most. From being an Alvin Gentry system in the summer league average 44 point game. King saw something in them to bring him in thinking that he could be more a role player for them. But yet with the guards we have here. Comments the Whitney here on Norris called Kobe back in the fold it just wasn't looking like a lot of minutes for Seth Curry so best luck to him just full.

Duty thing about the humidity I mean it's here whether you get rain or not so it's still gonna be steamy today I DT that there will be some scattered storms as early as lunchtime. Into the early afternoon. OK so. What chain with a chance to rend than 40% 40%. Outside content in a while and about normal you know typically at least say art typical summer weather. High of 92 and 40% -- chance and that's what we're seeing today of course that's kind averaged. But we're gonna keep it right about there for the next couple of days scattered storms through the weekend possible that it. The difference I guess this week that we have seen that rain whereas last week it was really part because I'd just reach out and that is what much out. Felt like we hadn't seen rain in ever and now people will start complaining and it's raining every day. It equals just thankful because. Meets at water he'll be a little bit towards the water the court every day. Bills high I today Gaza that the flowers will be followers. Will be thanks and that will be a good thing and the people who don't wanna get too hot but it will be thankful. Well and we continue that pattern all the way through the week. Through the weekend early next week that you and I DC today and that's scattered showers and storms each after. All right mr. meteorologist Laura but now live and right for the pin point forecasts and with your up to date on the rather. As we feel a little more of that hat on court at oracle yeah well I'd make servers knows crash and I still can't get our. Music's biggest masri created headlines at this one work out. Yet did you see the video that was circulating online an eighteen year old Connecticut man's invention. That has the federal aviation officials and other police investigating him so it shows a drone that match. Outfitted with a handgun. Out and he is able to fly this drowned remotely and he's able to. I hear a gun. Remotely is that it the honor yet the FAA says it's investigating whether it violated the regulations that prohibit the careless or reckless operation of model aircraft. And on working with local police who were investigating. The eighteen year old says. That. He would Dockett and he is not return telephone calls. And is not commenting. He made news last UN police charged the woman with assault after she confronted him about flying drone at a state beat apparently with. Videotaping women in there and be in the interests with his drones then now he's getting gun on his round. It theory. It's it's it to me it's a scary thing if someone can with a remote control I can be lie and I'll grant. Ready heavy technically and confided Cintas remotely cute you know assassinate someone and then yet the fly elf. And it's pretty scary I had that at that makes me nervous. And what's surprising and the videos on our FaceBook page at WWL radio. Is that the drought doesn't have a whole lot of when the gunfire as it moves. Almost straight back from the recoiled at seems to hold its position so I don't think even as an issue with aiming this thing it's just my if I'm what I'm really afraid of his copycats now. Someone who's seen this video that's gone viral I think that yeah a lot and I put a camera on a drone right. And then put a gun out and drowned and then go and shoot somebody I don't like. If they did is Smart he can escape this information and maybe give it to that US. Army or navy years some that where they could potentially use it in that kind of form of combat or something about it I don't see why it's typical. Normal average American would need you know I drove with a gun you know. But he he he advocates that. You ideally Ozzy out hunting application here. That would be legal or moral right. That's ever to sit here conditioning go hunt deer out on the back. I wounded when I'm out there and honey. The military has drown the can kill people. Right webs and right. I guess my point was like it and not talking body making it look even more suspicious. You know I think I would I would advice and it just and it got me this you know. This what I did the if it it's not against the law all right and that's what they're trying to figure out if I don't think there are law all of this. Knowledge and stuff happening so quickly that the law can't catch up so what. Is that it's right yet next legislature comes into session maybe you don't think about it right no man of what they'll do it if I'm if I'm cannot probably talk and am and it wouldn't matter if you're. That got the high shave my name you know whatever else you. I've made it.
