The average cost of a twelve pack has gone up since Stan. And there's been a lot of attention paid. Two people who claim that the soft drinks sodas are the root of -- obesity now or at least -- best it. A very big portion of the presidency so oh.

Thank you David aren't in about twenty minutes more for his Chris Miller joins us with more on the debate getting underway this week. Seven last week that the latest now this week it looks like the debate. Medical marijuana in the Louisiana legislature. Alone and -- let's go live and direct Eyewitness News forecast and it's a good Monday -- Welcome back once again and I'll just -- -- Well eastern yesterday I had weather could not have been nicer to -- outside all weekend now guys soaking up the sun and enjoying. Relatively low humidity. And just halfway you know at that time a year where it's that -- bottle this up we deepen the. That I can remember I nicer Easter -- it seemed like infant and can be a little chilly sometimes seeking you know talking rain storms sometimes for Easter set. -- -- is near perfect conditions oddly from Friday when skies cleared Friday always -- yesterday. No matter what you were doing whether -- involved hunting eggs her bunny hopping right or did you read. It was great to react or as it is that's. Whether kids. You can yeah you know today it's gonna be very similar to yes they are actual -- yes it was 82 U. It's a couple little bit yesterday and some think pretty close to that again today but the difference is that may feel just a little bit more humid a big difference but it may. Little luckier for those that this -- -- but no rain at all today no rain is really not expected today tomorrow we will see some showers and may be few thunderstorms as our next step how weak front moves in on Tuesday -- -- Tuesday afternoon and eat -- about a 30% chance for some spotty rains are not likely but possible. And it makes him right along that front this is not a strong front that not talking. Severe storms and -- heavy rain and that sort of thing and it's really gonna bring much cooler weather will be a little bit dryer on Wednesday. But we're still going to be in -- low eighties on Wednesday that not cooling down much behind it and right now likely on Wednesday and hope we can clear out with the drier air Wednesday we're staying dry Thursday and then for the first week and it Jazz Fest right now. Al Gore with low to mid eighties -- a 1020% rain -- it's Friday Saturday Sunday great. Whether to go to the fairgrounds drive whether to -- accuse the Zurich classic right system golf great whether it is about anything all this week's really complain it's it's. Look pretty quiet percent chance of rain tomorrow and other than that the highest rate -- excellent I'd like it. I love it wants the more. Remember your promise. -- you went to. I mean -- for -- you -- weapons that out now okay. I've just asked him because -- -- to overcome a Captain America minute ago and now I'm Miss America and Miss America is asking of Pennsylvania school district to reconsider. After punish disputed who asked her problems. During a question and answer portion of an assembly at the school. Yeah Miss America posted a statement and the organization's FaceBook page saying that she contacted central York -- one Pennsylvania. -- officials to rethink a three day school suspension. After eighteen year old Patrick. FA RVE yet and OK and -- it's far observes Bob razor. Neighbors in them and one of those we've -- anyway the eighteen year old says that you she says that. He. Cannot go to the dance because of -- travel schedule but would have gone. Tall. And school officials say they knew that this -- year. Intended to ask Miss America to prom and warned him not to -- when he needed anyway that's -- -- suspected he was told no. Apparently and they said he cause disruption because the fellow students went crazy. He apologized for disrupting the event. Here's the thing you know it's always easier to ask forgiveness than permission so maybe they say that you could occur -- I think word got out even. I've been quiet got no word got out names -- folks at the school filed it now don't do it but here's the real thing -- really wanna go to prom with Miss America. Apparently he hit it to the point -- promise you a deal with someone that you really like -- -- open that he can get a little romantic and the very close time and slow dances together and you know maybe there's a kiss and all that who knows what else but. Well I think that exact why he -- the American. People celebrities go to prom went back I think I -- it -- extremely unlikely that they're gonna I'll get accused. -- -- -- -- -- either way because that they say you know in the celebrity looks you know standoffish and -- in and night out they think -- yes. And that's really awkward you know last time the celebrities a good bit older than it hurts you nationally right. It's just it's awkward all it's a bad situation either way I feel I really actually feel -- -- the slippery when and that. Circumstance you know because it just it doesn't it just doesn't work out and it's cool like TI yeah. It's just at. Work -- I think if you ask a celebrity go to prom with you probably do belong in the people file. Just because it just doesn't make any sand rise there's no way that's gonna lead the romance in your back in the live happily ever after with the celebrity host and promptly I mean you know if you guys. Likely they're -- to show up for a few minutes maybe for some photo ops -- -- it's not like they're gonna. Hang out with -- all night on an enemy of the bride and limo and then go to the after party. Way and how would -- your thinking you know they don't really wanna be the year that they feel like they have to be there I don't -- seem awkward. -- all cordoned off -- think I. Years or awkward enough not to add the and it's -- local. He had asked you to -- Laura but now writes that you know an awkward but that I probably would have to -- now just because I'm 32 you and I probably -- -- cancer. Yeah I don't even notice all these -- doesn't. My -- down alive and direct from the acting as important -- that Steve Geller when I go to prom but we are gonna sports coming up after this.

Guys we know we got to give back to the fight you know we got out of the fight. That's what these games are now you know there's soon closer as a cowardly and I saw the second half we didn't never lose that lynch. The Miami Heat were able to take care of business at home winning 99 to 88 over the Charlotte Bobcats and Tim Duncan scored 27 points to lift the spurs past the mavericks ninety to 85.
