Zero all animals we it can't do which get a sunburn on the back of American idea camera there. -- a yeah last week two of school for my kids. So really. Thursday that I am yes -- and Summers this year. Ran and the -- feel like it's. Again that -- look forward I don't think while I shouldn't say. I was gonna say I don't think we're in for any more cool fronts now I would really. But the weather's been so wacky and her -- -- now we go to. We can't figure out what's going. By that is what is the Zelaya to athletes are -- I called into the newsroom last week. He's really. Down. -- -- -- He would receive the parking -- And his story generally went likeness. He went to an event it is child's school. And that everybody. Parked illegally. Around the school for the event. You know schools generally don't have extra parking so all the parents are coming to. You know graduation and confirmation and play play whatever it is just language you can get yeah you gotta find somewhere apart. And he says his kids and go to school there for years. And every year for the event everyone parks illegally. And every year no one's ever gotten a ticket. Until this year. And he was angry. Because he got a ticket for parking illegally. When he's done it before and didn't get a ticket for. And I was trying to figure out does he have a case or not. Beat and I notice anybody else getting out yet every off okay very clearly he would and he said that -- parking attendants that the word. -- -- -- -- -- -- Are you ever assessment ticket parking enforcement officers that area anyway he said they were lurking around the corner -- like -- knew the event was coming. And as soon as ever when inside for the event they came out everybody a ticket now whether or not that's true. You know as you -- -- you only if one side of the story yet because you would hope somebody might get their light. You know income and run in which they probably would speak to everybody tickets yet and I don't know some business in. It's possible they weren't really lurking around the corner it's possible that some business in the area some homeowner in the area complained because it was parked -- all over the place either way. Here's my question for our audience I want them to -- -- 8787. If you park illegally. And you've done it's many times and not gotten a ticket. Should you be upset. If you do get a ticket for -- -- guy the guys get a point. Where -- you supposed to mark the school event. And you gotta go as is nowhere to park legally close how far you gotta park away and walk. But he also admitted he parked illegally. And should be of said he got a ticket for parking illegally. All of a sudden it's ticket time yet tickets and apparently there to write as many tickets as they knew they -- -- -- respects. -- -- Scores of tickets. But the park illegally and you get a ticket to dubious that if you've got -- before it was generally accepted. -- -- -- -- -- By V 18 good morning I'm Dave -- one person -- meetings have idiots and it's as if your story part starts out I parked illegally but. Yeah probably won't happen here you struck and of bats and I I I. I have trouble being sympathetic for someone who admit they're parked illegally but then I understand that -- my kids' school. And if you don't get their crazy early for the event at the kid's school any legal spaces -- in if they school as a parking lot they -- -- faster than you're. In a pickle because he got to find someone apart and after running late you know the first people there you get a -- couple blocks away and walk it's tough but. Are the enforcement -- wrong for enforcing the law. And I -- -- it's almost like shooting fish in a barrel you know it's like hey if there -- an event at the school we know we're gonna get a bunch of tickets here. In his parking enforcement an important part of regulating. People's behavior and in making the city is safe and comfortable place or is it just in my program text -- 77 your forecast.

Indiana head coach Frank Vogel says they use their aggressiveness as an advantage. Well we want to have balance.

Of all the rookies to say it's just about done -- month. Yet just one rookie left the fourth rounder -- for the linebacker eyes on the when the remains unsigned and cook is actually only. The third first round draft pick to get -- so far sustained -- to reach. Only two other teams of -- signed their first round draft exactly that is one benefit to being -- round pick. In this first round because usually. The later rounds -- our start to set the market and that it's the first few takes that the last -- -- -- Yeah exactly so and now he gets to go back to school has the finish up his -- graduated NBA he's got to finish up over there and he'll be joined the team leader on the UTA's gadgets with the saints are pretty much.

What they're looking as we get him back there were talking about a guy who was upset that he had to go to it. Event -- is kids' school. And for years during this event people park illegally because there's no you know not enough room to park at the school when he got to take it and everybody else did too. And he was upset today they let us do it for years and it is literally nowhere else to park. Is he right or wrong. One person -- 78 -- is it illegal is illegal however event courtesy should be tolerated if they had to. If they did not -- tolerated anymore they should have posted warning. As does the police should have gone inside the school and warn people that were about to issue tickets. That would have been the courteous thing to do. A person does the law is the law for a reason all of us tend to speed now and then and we get away with it but it doesn't make it okay. When you caught so go ahead and take your link right well they got if you always drive five over the some -- to -- -- drive and five over is it okay. Or we break it off. Then your forecast. Really the only change the forecast this week will be some slightly higher temperatures by midweek but we hang on to that's sunshine today. Lots of it with warm Temps around 85.

People parked illegally news really angry got a ticket it is not fair -- always wonder before now -- -- under. Now the overwhelming. Thoughts and feelings from our audience texting estimates 7870 is like these two tax I think he should be satisfied with times he got away with it. That griping about the when he didn't. As does that guy got a ticket of the school that -- to calm -- lucky for not getting a ticket in the past cop or parking illegally. They got -- we had one of those. Running races here in the city there was some issues with that also.

Would be a fourteen -- a fourteen team play -- that too wild cards instead of one right -- that could start as early as this year. They're saying we don't see that happen using more teams should make the playoffs. I'm not so in favor that just because they feel like I I like we're its -- but I understand it'll be generate more money for the league which it. What it's all about it that will happen has been a lot of talk about changing extra points -- of Obama yet that'll also be up for grabs there they're gonna experiment that's now off from the twenty yard like during the pre season. And beaches in the C if they decide to have it as. A permanent date you whether gonna go for a longer term rates that are from the -- in this experiment with a twenty yard line I've even -- maybe from the 25 drug like for an extra point.
