8:00 am
this morning on fox 29 weekend, a situation at hershey park that isn't so sweet. the company says thousands of visitors may be at risk. what happened that's leaving a sour taste in many people's mouths. plus, a woman accused of shoplifting, the cops are called, but she only walks away with a citation. why one police officer said he just couldn't arrest her. and a philly school bus with a boot? no one is exempt from the parking wars. the reason the bus got the boot may make you even more furious. z . good morning and thank you so much for joining us for fox 29 weekend. this is an amazing saturday morning. it was so beautiful the sunrise.
8:01 am
i'm karen hepp along with bill anderson. good morning. >> good morning. we're going to have an amazing show. dave warren is back with our weather. how are things looking today? >> i am back here and great sunrise this morning because we have just those high clouds here in philadelphia but they're coming from something and it's some rain. it is moving out, it's well to the south, but part of the area could be seeing a light sprinkle here in the next few hours. the heaviest rain well south of delaware, continuing to push to the southeast, maybe seeing a sprinkle of clouds there in cape may county, just south of cape may courthouse. this is moving through to the south. the storms will be south of delaware and this activity is picked up by the computer forecast. look how it's moving south taking the clouds with it by about 1:00. just a great afternoon again.
8:02 am
a little bit of a sea breeze. a little change from yesterday. talk about these temperatures and we're going to show you one other number that's key today. 69 in allentown and potstown. the dew points are well down into the 50s. you don't see numbers like this this often in the month of july. on the scale here we are pleasant, but we will start to rise that back to the uncomfortable and oppressive level. i'll look at those numbers and tell you when the humidity returns in the 7-day. that's coming up later. >> it is exactly 8:02 and right now police are looking for armed men who broke into a home of south philadelphia. they duct taped a little child. >> that child was just four years old. and sabina, they duct taped a child? >> reporter: i mean, can you even believe it? can you imagine what was going through that little girl's head?
8:03 am
it happened in brought daylight. grandma was home with her kids while mom was at work and she says two men broke into the home. we do have video to show you. our cameras rolling just after police got there. it happened 11:30 on friday morning, grandma babysitting when two men got in through a window, they think they climbed a tree and broke through the window. one of the suspects pointed a gun at the grandmother. here is the mom describing the ordeal. get this some of that is coming from her four-year-old child who is able to tell her what happened. >> i could hear my daughter say two guys opened this window, maybe they saw my daughter make
8:04 am
too much noise and they used tape to cover her mouth and both babies cry and they just want to open -- and the one guy my boy and girl. >> so one of the guys picked up both of your children. >> yeah. they used the gun to point my mom. >> now, despite having a gun pointed directly at her, grandma acted fast, she was able to call for help and police came quickly. this morning the suspects are on the lose and we're told they left empty handed. despite all of this they believe it might have been attempted robbery but the suspects didn't get anything. the kids are okay. we're going to tell you exactly why this family thinks they might have been targeted. >> thank you so much, sabina.
8:05 am
new this morning, five people have been hurt in a crash in bucks county just about five hours ago. new jersey 413 and state road in bristol. four of those victims right now are in critical condition. that intersection is still shut down. we don't know what caused that crash. amtrak is saying it is not going to be fighting the liability in the first lawsuits that have been filed over a deadly derailment in may. the company admits the train was speeding and pledged to compensate victims. congress does limit amtrak's liability to $200 million per incident. courts may ultimately decide how that money is divided up. eight people died in that tragedy. investigators say the train was going more than 100 miles per hour. >> usair ways will soon be no more. the farewell trip will be a red
8:06 am
eye from san francisco to philadelphia and after that the website will be turned off and airport kiosks and signs will be changed to american airlines. the two airlines merged in december 2013. usair ways of course is one of philadelphia's largest carriers. >> i saw something thursday that kind of caught my eye. a philadelphia school district yellow school bus parked outside an elementary school sporting a parking authority boot. it turns out the district had not paid four long overdue tickets so the always efficient parking authority disabled the bus until the $675 tab was paid. >> they hadn't paid the ticket? >> apparently not. >> reporter: thursday afternoon
8:07 am
the tab was paid, the boot was removed and the bus was driven back to the garage. end of story? not really. my take, where to begin. a district spokesman told us the tickets were never paid because they were never received. the bus was registered to a closed district garage and the address had never been updated. as for those tickets, four in total, three were actually for running red lights. once in 2009, two more in 2012. both of those 2012 offenses i'm told occurred around 8:00 in the morning when that bus might very well have been carrying special needs students. in the wake of our questions, the district promises a full investigation. so to review, a bus driver or drivers blows through red lights with special needs students aboard and the district knows nothing about it until the
8:08 am
unpaid fines caused their bus to be booted. only in philly. >> seriously, you guys were talking about this one on facebook. the parking authority giving the school district a ticket for nonpayment? they're both philly agencies. you gotta love it. the city pays to have the boot removed with their own money. it's kind of like you're getting hurt on your own property and then you sue yourself. >> and ultimately who pays that? >> us. >> the 106th annual naacp annual convention is under way here in philadelphia. the event is expected to attract close to 10,000 people, including president obama, who will give a keynote speech at the convention on tuesday. >> coming up, pennsylvania
8:09 am
lawmakers and the governor in a budget battle. but this stretches much further than harrisburg. how this can affect your daily life. plus, big changes coming to your computer. microsoft ready to release windows 10. what does that mean for you?
8:10 am
8:11 am
. >> hershey entertainment, some of us go up to the hotel and all the parks up there and that whole group, they say people may
8:12 am
have had their information stolen. >> a program was installed that was able to steal visitor's information. so credit cards used between february and june may have been compromised. the company is now working with a security firm to resolve the issue and to try to correct for it, they're offering a year of credit card monitoring for any affected guests. >> and a dozen people are out of their homes this morning, we've had so many of these tornadoes, they had a confirmed ef-0 tornado thursday evening. they had sustained winds of about 65 miles an hour. that storm damaged several buildings and cars, knocked down a whole transmission line. the good news is nobody was there when that happened and the power is back up for the 1,400 customers who lost electricity. but repairing all those damaged roof tops, that's going to take
8:13 am
a while. >> ef-0. i mean, if this is a ef-0, this is the lowest, this was enough for me. i don't want to see a e, f, g, none. >> at least he still has a sense of humor. there was also a local high school that has temporarily opened its doors for people who are out of their homes. >> a school that had its roof ripped off was right in the path of an ef-1 tornado. the national weather service confirmation -- confirms that it was a tornado. winds 105 miles per hour are to blame. look at this, the roof ripped right off. thankfully only one person was inside the school during the storm. that was the principal. she was finishing up from work before heading off for vacation. >> i didn't think anything about it until i saw ceiling tiles
8:14 am
flying at me. i don't know if i fell or the wind knocked me down or an angel knocked me down or what and i was on the ground and stuff fell on me. >> alternative plans have been made. students will attend class ntion the nearby high school. we were actually talking about this up in the news room this morning. police in rehoboth beach delaware are looking for the person who stole more than half dozen lifeguard stands. these stands weigh about 500 pounds each. the beach patrol has 20 total stands. they say they have backups for the missing ones. they stole about a third of all of the stands there at rehoboth beach. the beach will be opened and protected this weekend. >> another big story of course, talking about money. this affects your money.
8:15 am
harrisburg has not passed a budget for the new year and this could have an impact on your life. it always seems like déjà vu, this is the fourth time in ten years this happened. the governor vetoed the budget passed by the legislature. and a whole would war of words breaks out. the house republicans see it differently. they tweet who's paying the line's share of taxes in governor wolf's plan? that would be you. let's break it all down with our financial analyst this morning. good morning, dan. >> good morning, to you. >> what does this mean for the regular person. are services going ton shut down? >> try to break this down and make it simple to understand. i'm glad you showed those tweets because this makes for good politics but really lousy economics. here's what i want you to think
8:16 am
about. imagine running your household without knowing exactly how much income you have coming in and by the way you're running your household paying your bills on whatever money you have leftover from last year. that's essentially what the state of pennsylvania is doing as we speak. they're trying to grapple with three big issues. taxes, pensions and booze. what does that mean for us? as you said in the lead, the reality we've been here before. there's one thing pennsylvania is getting good at, it's learning how to manage without a budget, which is obviously not a good thing. in the short term, meaning say between now and month's end, we're not going to see really the avrnltion citizen is not going to see a -- average citizen is not going to see a lot of impact. the first group of people that get impacted are nonprofits. government agencies can use leftover funds from last fiscal
8:17 am
year to get them through a few weeks. nonprofits who depend on state funding, they're the ones who are going to suffer. for now state workers are on the job, some contractors may start not getting paid, if you're a state contractor that could be a problem. but the really pinch right now in the next couple of weeks are non-profits who depend on state aid to deliver those services that in many times are critical. >> what about state documents, what if i have a baby and i need a birth certificate. >> are you trying to tell us something? >> don't drink that coffee. >> the governor has issued a letter on the website that goes through some of the detail. if this thing lingers into the fall, the pain will go beyond just nonprofits.
8:18 am
it may become harder to get that birth certificate. so far the governor has said penn dot is excluded from the pain, so you can get your driver's license. so if this thing goes into the fall, you might see driver's licenses and things like that get slowed down as well. pennsylvania state parks are still open, they're still operating. there has been no plans as yet to either curtail those hours or close any of the parks. and karen you've got kids, your kids, tell them don't bank on school starting late, because chances are schools are going to start on time. why? because schools get a lot of their funding at the local level. if this thing dragged on well beyond the fall, that could impact your local school. >> that's when people would get livid because we need to have the kids in school. >> people will pay double the taxes they pay now just to get
8:19 am
their kids back in school. >> all right, dan. we always appreciate you break it down and make it simple for us. >> have a great day. >> karen are you trying to tell us something? >> no, no. but look at gorgeous it is out there right now. >> we're going to find out exactly what you can expect, how you can get out and enjoy your day. but first we got this question. >> what's up fox 29? what's the weather going to be like for our tailgate fans, dave? >> i love it. >> you got it guys. good luck today. a lot of tailgating, not only for the game but kenny chesney is in town. 1:00 game time 84 degrees, a
8:20 am
light breeze 5:00, not the humidity like we've seen. it should be a beautiful evening, a great afternoon, whether you're at the soul or down at the kenny chesney concert. clear on the radar, not quite clear everywhere. we have some showers to the south, a little heavier there in the delmarva. all south of our area. maybe just a few sprinkles in the next hour. clouds will clear out and we'll see a nice comfortable afternoon. that seabreeze is back down the shore so the temperatures will be a little cooler. relative humidity way down at 55%. when it's that low this early, nice and comfortable afternoon. things are pretty clear on the computer forecast. clear overnight tonight. look what happens tomorrow. just a few lines of clouds. that sea breeze coming in that will keep the temperatures down only in the mid to low 70s.
8:21 am
we'll warm it up a few more degrees tomorrow. in fact we have a few 90s in the 7-day forecast. here are the storms coming back with the humidity both monday, tuesday and wednesday. not quite as hot and dry on thursday and friday. there's that summer-like wednesday on tuesday and wednesday with highs near 90. >> i don't mind the 90s. i'm good. >> it's summer. police officers have just about heard it all, but one accused shop lifter's story touched one cop's heart. >> i love stories like this. also we have some big changes coming to your computer whether you like it or not. microsoft is ready to release windows 10. so what does that mean for you? what are the changes and will you like them? we'll break it down. ♪ go on take the money and run

9:06 am

9:50 am
today it's dry there as well but a little farther south there's some rain out there. just a few showers. this is a future cast, the clouds are clear. by 6:00, a nice night tonight, a nice morning tomorrow and tomorrow afternoon nice and clear. sunny and just a little cool breeze out there. it's national pet day this is zoe. nice and comfortable, waiting to go outside into the mid 70s. 74 in allentown, warming up in philadelphia. almost up to 80s. it will be into the upper 80s but we have to talk about 90s. it stays dry this weekend but here's a 90-degree temperature tomorrow. that humidity is still fairly low so it's nice and comfortable. it comes back monday, tuesday and wednesday. we put that humid word back because it will feel a little
9:51 am
uncomfortable and there will be showers and storms by tuesday and wednesday and it clears out as temperatures drop back down to 85 degrees. >> the naacp national convention is under way here in philadelphia. things officially kicked off yesterday and nearly 10,000 people are expected to attend the event. this year's theme pursuing liberty in the face of injustice. while some leaders are excited the convention is here, in philadelphia they hope organizers bring a pro active agenda. >> my issue is to ensure that while the naacp is here that they are participating in the african-american community. if we've got hundreds of such groups coming to down and if the major african-american conventions come to down and don't do that, then we don't have much hope. >> he also pointed out that millions of dollars will be spent during the convention and he says if some of that money
9:52 am
doesn't get into some of the communities, then the naacp hasn't lived up to its responsibilities to the community. joining us to talk about this solomon jones. what do you think about the comments? >> i think bruce has a point. i think what happens is when these conventions, not just the naacp conventions, but all conventions when they come to town, we count the economic impact regionally. we're not counting what happens in our neighborhoods. one of the things we talked about making sure that people from the neighborhoods, black people can go and have temporary vending licenses. so they can sell material, so they can make some money. when you talk about that economic impact, it's not really impact that comes straight to the neighborhoods that need it most, where one out of four people live in poverty.
9:53 am
>> i took it to social media. i asked people where they thought the money should go. not to the realm of crooked, wicked politics in this city. the revenue should be disbursed to the community, families and the like who are in dire need. some will be visiting african-american historical sites. let's hope they pay attention and sigh. so with that level of responsibility. and being held accountable going into the communities, is the naacp, do you think, going to do the right thing. and are they still relevant in taking on these challenges? >> i think a number of things are going on. one, we've always had the struggle in black activism where you've had the oeler generation against the younger generation. you have the naacp versus a younger breed of activists who operate on social media.
9:54 am
in some ways the naacp has not caught up to that yet. what i'm hoping to see is a coming together generationally of these activists. the naacp with the younger activists. the other thing i'm hoping to see is that the people who compromise the naacp, because it's made up of local chapters will actually go into neighborhoods and spend money. leave center city go into north philly and west philly and spend money. >> we'll continue talking about it. always a pleasure to have you. >> thank you. >> it's been a spirited discussion and debate on social media. so tell us, should the naacp be held accountable to get some of those dallas into the community. you can tweet us @
