Like there's a last minute change of plans and hey whatever Peyton says could lose absolute -- Sir luckily for me I'm five minutes away from camp I just felt bad for the Baton Rouge reporters that ago. And turn right back around and had a batters my goodness gracious and it into its own nicely because. As. Yeah we had among not sports book last. Night talking about he's got a new Jimmy -- opening in Covington today but I mean he gets the -- work with. Branding -- this week that's -- really looking forward to talking to. Today at camp and seeing him finally an action at the C a little during rookie mini camp when he was here. But he's missed organized team activities he wasn't here for training for mini camp but finally -- the team has yet to finish up school is the most important I salute at the finish that up but -- stayed even though he is a multimillionaire now. But and the line is a terrible thing to -- yet so he and outsmart the the best thing to do and beat the saints were forced. Suit you know epic he couldn't say had yet to quit school and income now but. It's -- be the interesting piece of his saints offense is here because. One he's got that speed factor. He also has this ability. Similar to Darren Sproles to be able to move in a small amount of space in just -- is slippery. So I I'm excited to see what he brings that out already. Dangerous saints' offense it gives them C a new kind of threat and I know Sean Payton and drew pretty public -- -- yet ready for this season. That should be very interesting thanks a lot stealing from a coming up if you could pick a color for the smoothie king -- what color would you choose.

That putting up sample college we'll help them actually get a look at it. To determine the best choice for the building. And Doug says we want to pick the collar that would be reflective. Of the LED lighting. And the other guiding principle is that we want to have a collar that is neutral so that we don't like our. Great told brown -- and that's what they're looking at though he could pick a color for the arena which color would you select. And we had some encouraging news especially if you're an asthma sufferer. A new survey suggest asthma in the United States may actually finally be going down on the decline but the results are so surprising. That health officials are cautious about claiming an actual downturn the numbers up from a report released by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention and and the findings come from a large national health survey conducted last year's.

Actually it was that. Don Dubuque -- certainly checked in the same. -- isn't that I had him in my favorite people like you know being the fisherman he is the early hours this is not a problem for Don and that's what he was on his way. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Happy are you like somebody do the work area in and I'll be very appreciative. There is a Cleveland area man who says police actually violated his first amendment rights of speech. When they cited him for holding a sign David wanting motorists there is ED UI checkpoint ahead. -- you can't do that. That was a -- city held a sign with the following words. Check point and hit it yeah star and now are okay that's what he really got into trouble. Let's turn now. He is attorney five fighting the citation the and the basic police sometimes abuse their authority and he believes -- -- -- just caused by letting people well interest in case you again. At a police spokeswoman say that city attorney say the part the signs telling motorists to term. That's the illegal part okay so there are saying if he just said. Checkpoint ahead right probably no problem they -- Malone but the fact that they say turn now. Is really when they have these announcers -- you exactly where it is of front on no. That's a surprise you know Ryan and -- my wife is still embarrassed Tuesday but. This is back wouldn't you are Mario's son uses so little baby. And the little baby in the car seat and they were cruising along and she walked up way up ahead and saw there was checkpoint. So what is she you know. She turned around and horrible you'd turn the lights came on on immediately. And yeah -- yeah like tune troopers all over. And CN done in the wrong. Are there were no violations their but they wanted to know why she turned around. Suspicious the lady yeah she was kind of you know mumbling and and fumbling but. You know they wandered off.

Learn now and this is the first time that the men use the sign police actually arrested him in 22 -- are having a knife in his pocket. While holding the sign he pled guilty to disorderly conduct was sentenced to community. So -- that it's also the messenger. That is the problem. Yeah. All right let's bring in my about that I would if -- sport is that you have to start singing a. I love you -- -- -- -- -- won't ask me that it's all -- -- that go really bad back. Yet it's up and I have come to terms with a lot of people. Don't think very well and -- are not aware of I do not think very well and I area where one. -- -- -- think I -- -- thinking yes preferably not when anybody around here -- habit but only my dog I don't want to have to suffer through -- you know you're looking -- -- evening all of that he wants them look Ciara Craig Bradley an update now and say absolutely keep it -- he acts. -- -- -- -- -- So -- Four today I'll keep Angela 92 day long -- we had been ninety like yesterday we hit 91 yesterday.

Right around -- 34 clockers and it. Rained it did it I heard it distant batteries I think it you -- I didn't believe -- not and the way I did here. Cools things off -- the -- increase the it will ease from that -- yet you're right big city. A -- New Orleans that he -- downforce right okay so it's a degree you -- -- normal but then. Is a wrist kind of feeling of the officials died of of summer is -- until it's Saturday are at this summer solstice and called mad at the official. -- start of summer I think it's kind of funny yet some people -- memorial like and it kicks off summer. -- people think once it hit ninety yeah some are I -- pregnant they're at school.

As he had to finish up schooling at Oregon State quarterback Drew Brees is like a kid on Christmas morning getting to play with a brand new toys.

Meanwhile the Netherlands won three to -- over Australia while Croatia one for nothing over Cameroon. Clayton Kershaw of the LA Dodgers has altered the second no hitter of the Major League Baseball season. The lanky lefthander struck out a career high fifteen in the dodgers' eight nothing victory over Colorado last night teammate Josh Beckett tossed a no hitter last month.

And eaten alive bill little wave became his efforts career strikeout leader while allowing one run in six innings and added an RB -- single at the plate. Leading disease to a 51 win over the Fresno grizzlies. Today have four on sports talk alive in the Louisiana hall of fame -- -- -- issue. We'll bring you Sean Payton and saints following the final day of organized team activities find out who impressed. And who looked distressed. I'm Steve Geller and that your early morning look at sports and still no ruling -- decision yet for -- and -- and I've found that they blew the whole hearing was actually in New Orleans not New York. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Right exactly that make complete sense now because -- like there's no way the Asian this year. But the hearings going on in New York City but -- Ramon Vargas great writer for the advocate was on the stake out yesterday and waited for everybody to come out the hotel. Sean Payton was there as well came out no comment Jimmy Graham comes out. No comment the arbitrator. No cabin no comment so yes still no ruling but I think it they've wrapped up they hearing so we could hear a decision. I guess as early as today may be tomorrow as we head into the weekend but. I'm. I've been hearing so many differing opinions from folks it's hard to say whether he is going to be the -- rulers of -- and or wide receiver everyone seems to have a different opinion on it. Like off in the end it's still a bunch of uncertainty when a surprise bills bills okay I'm gonna work on making sure that people -- at least one -- I'm just were ordinary with condensed. -- more Adobe actually gone though -- it's -- in the freezer ought to put my name on Mary. Even a the. It doesn't look like anyone's been eating its notes must be -- -- dry years ago the limits and allow -- to me. And I left them out the next day and they will go on. And the trying to figure out who took my. Its -- is it to mean. Was your name. As if they knew that there was at all. Well it's just. If it's just out and about it just must be community it's free. What have a lot of signs on the refrigerator door yet exactly they'll go to the it's not that we have initials on Kremer in there -- everything and -- if. A medically field and they'll get through. But I thought that was my zip lock bag with sandwich -- -- I didn't but it may try to get. And maybe not and you favorable. To our maybe after camp I can run down here in room. I would. I'm optimistic they -- -- thank you look coming up we'll tell you about Kolb doesn't know it. Moved from his. In the early edition of WWL first news everybody. Yes milk shake. Milk shake the recently and sell milk shake is now. And she is confused. Because milk shake thinks that it's really. Well but a dog. It usually hangs out at the grace foundation ranches where it lives and if I used to hearing a -- Donald sensing -- -- of coming. You can best believe that milk shake will be with the pack of dogs usually hanging out with adults because according to the owner milk shake things. -- -- -- Negotiate with say from an abusive owner for years ago by the grace foundation that's an animal rescue organization in California. And every time milk shake appears. The auction brings all the dole looks to the pay better then yours. I think a lot of people think it's a trick according to the owners of the foundation and that you reporter walked along where. The owner and here comes -- package not a small number of golf than there was no (%expletive) right there she hangs up with the don't -- so I think she thinks she is a don't. -- account she really doesn't know the difference according to the owners and that milk shake beats comfortably with a pack of dogs to -- adult. She's even tried to get into the backseat. Of the owner of the of the foundations car. I would've loved to have seen that happen and we milk shake is invited she has no problem hanging out in the house. Could. -- milk shake. I think this chicken eggs in there and the kind of program. Right back in just a moment this is the only addition of -- WL first news. It's the same old same old for a Thursday forecast here's Laura. Now much of a change to the forecast is more summertime heat with 92 this afternoon. And only at 10% chance for just a straight thunderstorm and it stays pretty mild tonight lows dipping into the low to mid seventies. And right back up to 92 tomorrow at 92 again on Saturday. We'll keep a 10% chance and for rain on Friday may be up that just a little bit to 20% on Saturday.
