Eleven minutes after 5 AM at the early edition of WWL first news on this fifteenth of July 2016. It is finally TGI out welcome to fry it and. Wild weekend. And let the good times roll. My goodness. So happy Friday here. And we can dive right into the weekend. It comes with. Damn not again. For many reasons. Touched me. Particularly. The latest attack. This one and east France I just figured out why here. Not only was it horrendous not only was it in such a method in a manner that there's so little anyone could have done to know about it or senator stop. Here you have a guy in a truck with a gun. Given he had all bunched up in the backe could have eventually used to make it even worse but didn't but a guy. In a truck. With a gun. I'll take to kill scores of people. And that's a site. Wow having fun looking at fireworks. Just have a great night out celebrating Bastille day French independence. On top of that my daughter's in France the problem. The good news is for me is she's eleven hours away from race. She is. About as far as he can get on the French Belgian border. And today is headed to pair switches still about 910 hours Romney's. But my fear of course and I told. David. Stay away from large crowds and be aware of your surroundings but I thought of that when she's left for you all sure. And not expecting any new incidents what you were auto works never know nor you to you don't now. And end. I fully believe. That most American cities remain more dangerous on a daily basis. And anywhere in Europe even with this craziness calling her. I mean the number of murders we see. And most American cities annually. Is so ridiculous the of you know much higher chance to be in the victim of a gun crime or are you kidding in a car crash and of course being the victim of any kind of terror attack overseas but. It's coming in the volatile isn't mine and and so if she's a way to Paris. And move them. We'll spend a day in and night then and come home. Opener at that time in the world is crazy. And you just don't know. What the hell is going on yeah you'll want to travel. You wanna go see things I mean this is such a great trip for her to be doing. And what she's been able to view and and take in the culture and that's how much would make the world a great place for these days it's just sewed dangers. And is it feels. I mean there are many neighborhoods in New Orleans that are far more game call than anywhere you can go and her. Exactly yeah now and I would never letter ago to use some of those neighborhoods and new war ones. But nonetheless so. You know we'll keep you up to that on what's going on over there so far and we're hearing a lot of the lone wolf. Kind of references. We have not seen. Claims of responsibility from. International terror groups. And I don't know we will. There are some saying that prices could claim responsibility that is haven't yet because they don't want to. Giveaways their position they send out a tweet to impose something to serve the media market a bomb dropped on can be tracked. And then maybe to figure out where they tar. By. It looks prices see it does but it also looks like. Crazy weirdo. And now some interest decided they want it to a whole bunch of people. And it just saying you know there was talk about how. Mass gun crimes are uniquely American and saying these terror attacks there usually bomb it and and you know way explosive devices and things like that. Here's a guy in a truck with a gun. In now an aid to its tanks of the kinds of things we see over here with people. Shooting people many throws and running them over with a massive truck to. So we shall see how this unfolds and we got still 84 dead and now they've added two Americans into that number. Boy. So we'll keep you posted on what's gone on the latest from these France throughout the day. Guy right here on the radio and on WW well dot com of course Tom's. We don't make as much living here just as folks in other places new report says the average salary. For the New Orleans area is. 10% below. The national. That's a sizable chunk yet and that's below the average not below the high. That's an exit out that's below the average. That some or talk about this morning we'll give you more details on that. Coming up from debit deals done names in the news with David blanket 530 but I wanted to know from new tax me and it's 7870 party think your salary compares. The folks across the country. And the numbers don't lie on average people who live here get paid lacks. And does that trouble you are eating act costs less than live here or it's worth more to live here. So it's okay we'll break down the numbers and the specifics coming now. I can't think of anywhere in the world I'd like to Kenya don't. That's why we're still here. You'll be back right here endless entertainment news WWL AM implement. The forecast you're sports it's coming down. 521. The average American makes 23 dollars and change per hour that's 929. Dollars a week. Or 48318. Dollars. Per year according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. But in New Orleans it is less than that we make less than average on average. The average new millennium makes 834. Dollars a week that's about 43368. Dollars per year. Or twenty dollars and 85 cents an hour outage your salary stack up. To the New Orleans average and the national average here on the bottom side of the New Orleans average and you believe. On the US average. Why don't let fear it would make less money text made it 787 it while you listen to your weekend forecast. What that umbrella with you once again on this Friday as we'll have mostly cloudy skies Steve's hiding Cuba with that 50% chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Get expects heavy downpours at times with high temperatures around 93. Still feel like what 05 until the rain starts. Now for tonight partly cloudy but with a 20% chance for a few showers and storms. Those dropped out 79. Look at the weekend the first 50% chance for storms on Saturday with a high around ninety three's still feel like a low one hundreds. It's Sunday the jets rate drops to 40%. High temperatures around 94. The report forecast center a WW LTV meteorologist Dave just bought. Cooler this morning and mostly cloudy skies at 79 degrees at the airport in Kenner to actually dropping below 8074. In sight now. Friday's sports palace are Bernard. Thanks Dave SEC media days closed out yesterday with LSU is less miles finally taking the podium. While the hottest topics was the status of tiger quarterback Brandon Harris and the evolution of his game heading into his junior year. Can we expect a more dynamic offense what Paris under center Tony sixteen. My house says yes. I think we can expect more from our quarterback play and our receiver play Terrelle and Dupree should have. Mark seasons where. They make big place and significant game. He also cautioned though that airing the ball out isn't the only sign of an offense that gets things done. Where Ford and run it with advantages. With the advantages are we're going to now. And traded would be those guys. LSU has top level play makers of both running back and wide receiver this season to Harris should have all the tools he needs to succeed. Two leaders made their choice for new baseball coach Travis Hewitt will take the reins of the green wave becoming just the fifth man to lead to win baseball since 1967. It's to his first head coaching job. But he's been an assistant for seventeen years he comes all of a three year stint as associate head coach at Vanderbilt one of the nation's top programs. And with a 3 PM deadline looming today the Denver Broncos have offered pass rusher Von Miller. A 114 point five million dollars over six years with a whopping seventy million dollars guaranteed. It would be the largest amount of guaranteed money ever give up on non quarterback. And would also make Miller the highest paid player in Broncos history. Today a sports talk. Let's compare drafts whose rookies or make a bigger impact in their first season the saints or the pelicans. Plus reports say the states have made an offer to veteran receiver Anquan Boldin to elect the move or not I'll look for the pros at for on WW LR mark minority. The early morning sports headlines. I Tony court they've gone mark when I'm with you on your radios that we talked about LSU's ranks on offense and of course they're running back great receivers and still a bit of question marks. At quarterback but hopefully he can do just enough what the defense how does this LSU defense look. As they hope to compete this year for a national championship last year we knew it was a rebuilding your. This year they better get it done. Well they have a number of top prospects on the defense as they usually do they have DeVon got chocolates and rocket tore on the line if Kindle back with a linebacker they have for devious white who's considered the best players in the country. At cornerback so they have play makers at every level of the defense and they're bringing in a new defense of coordinator. That's Dave around he'd been in Wisconsin for a few years consistently had Wisconsin in the top ten and last year the badgers with the number two defense and all of college football so. He should be an upgrade over Kevin Steele. Any of it back to my next report what you would let's miles had to say about Dave around to but I'm expecting big things out of the tiger defense. Now there are a lot of reasons to be optimistic about LSU football this season thank you mark come optimistic about hearing less miles talk about around a coming up when he gets you back in with more support than 25 minutes on your Friday morning on WWL. 527. At least 84 dead and dozens more injured after a truck driver slams into a crowd of people in and knees France terror attack the latest coming up.

Port tonight partly cloudy and muggy with a 20% chance for rain no load up 79. Heading into the weekend the perfect percent chance restored on Saturday with a high temperatures that lowered ideas. The Chancery drops to 40% on Sunday with highs in the mid ninety's in next week looks like it's gonna be hot week with highs the mid nineties in just a slight chance of rain at 30%. But the report forecast center WW LTV meteorologist Dave dust off. I coming up the latest on the terror attack in knees France and CBS news out review those numbers against vacancy where yours salaries stacks up. You get paid as much as folks in the greater New Orleans area what about compared to the national average and we target text messages as well and we'll see what's opening up the box office and get Dave. But it takes prediction on. Will be number one. In the movie theaters I'm Dave Cohen thank you so much for joining us on this Friday edition of the earliest. Me 37 minutes after 5 AM it's the early edition of WWL first news. It's July it's the fifteenth it's 2016. It's a TV GI. Asks it really does make me feel good to say well come due Friday gang. So get after he jumped around yet. I'm ready for a powerful. Everybody now follow jump up jump up and it began. I hope you figured out how to do all 3% to. Well two of the same. How does a good job. Yeah does it really does feel should be Friday well yeah I mean the news is heavy today true is that have. We have another terror attacks in Europe. This time. The death told could make it to a under. A lot of people who are vary vary injured right elements and 84 confirmed dead. After a guy with a gun in a truck mowed down a crowd of people. Celebrating Bastille day in the east France he just kept going and going. And the cops before even got the crowd were all shooting at the trop. And I don't know if he had bulletproof glass I didn't. You know bullet holes all in the windshield. And the side of the truck but he just can't go on he can't drive it issued. And while one guy one truck. He had guns and grenades in the back according to reports but never did get together and get to them and use. So we'll keep you posted on that threat today here and eight of the well I am FM and that count the funeral services. Today. In baton as many as 5000. People expected at the funeral for officer. Including the reverend Jesse Jackson the Reverend Al Sharpton. Police got to be the head I have to beat it. But they're gonna try to kind of take a backseat and yes day kind of around the edges in the periphery and in less than needed it not really. Make themselves obvious. I think that's probably the right thing at this point and lighted be a nice piece of coal. He's holes when I'm yeah makes express your views there which gonna say do which he had to pay your respects but please let's keep this thing. From getting crazy in control there would be. So disappointing. If we can't do that because we've got to hang onto what humans do you have like yup place you know your world we can't do a funeral about problems we got a real into the world on par around listen. Enough is enough. What do you make an hour and how does that compare what's going on now well we have a new report from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. It says the average American makes it 23 dollars and 23 cents an hour. That's 929 a week about 48300. Dollars a year now that's the average American yes the average American. It's Macon just over forty grandy and went in and week. 2323. In New Orleans when they considerably less than the average New Orleans. This is the metro area makes just under 21 bucks an hour twenty dollars and 85. That worked at 834 dollars a week. 43300. Dollars. That's the average in new war so folks you won your case stacks up outward Royce back he won't go to. That's that's where you stack up so if you make less than 43 grand a year year deal and under average for greater New Orleans if you make under 48 grand a year. You're less than average. For the United States. And John are you look at the cost of living and inaugurated into that discussion. This is partly cheap town to live it well a lot of people say he pale lot last property taxes and you January. And I think that's an issue. As the property taxes worm might try aren't like person takes me 7870 thing super low property taxes and others. Somebody else says. I'm about 16100 a week I'm also 24 so misses him pretty well. In the presence does that make 489. Per year. Their military GS 09. Our government worker.

Today a sports talk let's compare drafts whose rookies or make a bigger impact in their first season the saints or the pelicans. Plus reports say that the saints have made it offered a veteran receiver Anquan Boldin to like the move or not public for the pros for. On WWL I mark Menard. The early morning sports headlines. They've gone mark when I'm with you on a Friday morning mark we've talked all week about LSU football because of SEC media days you've talked about how you expect better things out of Brandon Harris now that he's gotten it. Full year it's starter and really should have an opportunity come and it was on where those miles talk about the great receivers they have coming back we know they've got the best running back in the game. The defense you just told us about all these great reasons to be optimistic. What are the weaknesses that we should be concerned about that could prevent LSU from making a serious run national championship. Well you have the biggest weakness is that people have talked about it is of course a quarterback Brandon Harris and I think that if he stepped his game up. Yeah they don't have to have stellar quarterback play they have to have somebody who manages the game. And doesn't make the big mistake and maybe get your big play here in their remember they won national championships in Baton Rouge Matt mark and Matt Flynn at quarterback but neither of those defies. Turned out to be huge NFL stars or anything right but they knew how to not screw it up exactly get it to the great receivers get it to the great running backs and that's what wins and that's what they're gonna have to you have Brendan Harris be a top flight facilitator. To get the ball where it needs to. I don't know what kind of speaking Indians amen just don't screw it up and will be fine. Guys Adam that's how you approach it but that's the truth don't screw up for the gipper was always afraid if there. A great speech in sports Lombardo afford your next sports gas in about fifteen minutes just don't screwed up I'll try not to screwed our ride. I'm Dave Conan simply edition of WWL first news.
