it is time to talk hero center. a woman hit financial hard times when her car broke down. so she brought it to a auto shop but couldn't afford the repairs. what did the shop do, they fixed it for free. how often does that happen. this woman sent me an e-mail nominating those employees as her heros. she wrote sometimes we forget that businesses can do right by their customers and consider an individual's circumstances when offering a helping hand. i'm so grateful to these companies for their honesty, empathy and expertise in resolving this dilemma which had me so worried for two weeks. that e-mail from carolyn in washington. i will be shooting her story this morning. be sure to follow me on twitter for the latest. the full story will air on thursday morning at 6:10 a.m. if you would like to nominate a hero in your life or community, we want to hear about it.
e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. here's a story about another local business helping in our community. remember a few weeks ago i did a story on the 75th birthday of martins tavern gineorgetown? get this. today they are giving back to the community who's made them the oldest family-owned restaurant in washington. today and only today the restaurant is rolling back their prices to 134 -- 1934. that means everything from appetizers to entrees including their famous steaks and crab cakes will be sold at the same price they were sold at in 1934, i'm not sure what those prices are, but i guarantee you they will be dirt cheap. and there are a few rules. you can only go from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. and you can't take out any orders. you have to eat in house but again these are prices that people would have seen when they walked in 1934.
so martins tavern, it is open happen -- it is only happening today. >> i bet $10 could go a long way. >> no kidding. the u.n. security council is giving north korea another scolding they are condemning the north for firing seven ballistic missiles on saturday. they say they must comply with obligations under the resolution. police are confident they have killed the man responsible for five murders in cherokee county, south carolina. patrick tracy burris was shot to death by police investigating a burglary complaint. his gun matches the gun used in the murders. republican leaders in south carolina have reprimanded governor sanford for his recent admission involving a mistress. but the gop did not ask him to step down. sanford says he appreciates the party's position and will work

here's a check at the forecast in to the afternoon. mostly sunny. we might have an isolated shower far north and west. highs today around 85. i'll take it. it is 70. good morning annapolis you are closer to the water. 65 andrews air force base. over my shoulder, though, in martinsburg in the 50s. that's the number in cumberland. 61 manassas to culpeper. all right. this is one of our computer models. we look at it to see in we will have any rain showers in the forecast as you can see the time by 1:00, hardly any rain drops. as we head in to today, we may squeeze out a shower far north and west and tomorrow a period of partly cloudy skies but the way i see it we are hard- pressed to get rain to fall from the forecasted clouds. the main energy with this front trying to sneak in is well to the north toward the great lakes. so the weather forecast for today, mostly sunny and 82 at noon. 86 for the high.
a degree or two shy of the average of 88 degrees. speaking of fronts there's one across central pennsylvania. this is going to try to creep down on us but again the support to generate showers is closer to the great lake and it's going to be wet today if you are heading in to new england, hartford, worcester, boston, portland, maine, you know the drill. they haven't had many breaks from the wet weather recently. here's the latest round as it heads across the mountains. to the deep south they have rain firing up across northern florida. so if you have a flight to jacksonville, that's where some thunderstorms might slow you down. in terms of the heat across the middle of the country we found it. dallas 93. 90 memphis. a nice one in chicago, 77. if you want triple-digit heat phoenix is the place. pacific northwest 66 for seattle and 80 in los angeles. as for our weather we will keep it mostly sunny. our temperatures, take a trip
to the upper and mid-80s but the humidity really not that bad. are you ready for the chimes? that means it is time to put down the toothbrush and look at the screen. the seven day is up. 85 tomorrow. on thursday cooler and 81. more clouds by the afternoon and night. over the weekend we will build in toe the 90s by saturday and scattered storms on sunday. if you look at the right, the rundown is up all the time. if you miss my seven day we always have you covered. >> the traffic alerts are there and i'm also on-line. you can friend me on facebook, shoot me an e-mail, follow me on twitter. i'll hook you up with a opinionallized traffic report. my word. biggest delay out there is 24 minutes to get from dale boulevard to the fairfax county parkway. that volume is building. moving to 395 northbound a
little slow. tracking it from duke to seminary. that delay is growing, as well. put it over to 66. drivers here are experiencing plus five minutes in the car to make it from 50 to 123. and then in maryland, on 270 southbound, our main delay where the drive is filling south here around montgomery village avenue to interstate 370. to wrap it up, let's do it with the beltway. the outer loop in maryland where we have a little congestion. not so bad from new hampshire to georgia avenue. now over to andrea. an offensive explosion lights our look around major league baseball. the sports headlines are next. but first it is the time for the signs of now. a rare animal was tentatively declared to be extent after several years of poaching and sports hunting. was it the west earn black rhinoceros, the golden toad or
dinner with the girls tonight. mmm... mexican, or italian? i really want dessert tonight. i better skip breakfast. yep, this is all i need. ( stomach growls ) skipping breakfast to get ahead? research shows that women that eat breakfast, like the special k® breakfast, actually weigh less. the special k® breakfast, now in blueberry. so why skip? when you can eat all this... and still weigh less. victory is... sweet. back with the signs of now.
the answer is a, the western black rhinoceros. the animal, which was once widespread across the savannah of western south africa was down to 10 worldwide in 2000. today none of the animals are known to exist in the wild or in captivity. in sports the nats were in colorado yesterday. washington starter craig stayman tossed a gem. one run in seven innings. rockies pitcher was bert. he didn't allow any runs in the win. nats fall 1-0. we got slaughtered said the reds manager dusty baker. the phillies chase utley and shane all went long in the 1stinning last night against the reds. the phillies eventually scored ten in the first frame and went
on to win 22-1. today venus williams will be in the district for the world team tennis season. freedom will take on the capitals. her sister serena is on but doesn't join until next tuesday. her sister-sister show down is today in the district. andy roddick tweaked his hip in the final against federer. he has withdrawn from the davis cup against croatia. marty fish will take his place. stage three of the tour de france saw lance armstrong move to third. just 40 seconds in the overall lead. local budget constraints will soon many many highway rest stops will no longer be open for you when you need them. and investigators confirm more rumors in the death of

the senate is following the houses lead in creating transparency. they will post expenses on the internet instead of volumes that must be purchased or viewed inside of capitol buildings. the idea is to let people see what they are doing with their accounts. they must pass a compromise before before it takes even. good morning to kim martucci on the weather terrace in for howard bernstein. hi, kim. >> reporter: good morning. it is gorgeous on our weather terrace, i'm enjoying our furniture and blue skies and the birds that live in the satellite dish couldn't be happier. look at the numbers. i will help you plan your day. i want to tell you quickly about the allergy report. the good news e the weed thmoe , lde trees are all in , the low category. all right. here's a check on the numbers.
pleasant conditions across the board. mostly everybody in the 50s, eastern panhandle of west virginia, western maryland that's where you will find upper 50s this morning. nothing terribly cold but they are the middle of july near perfect weather. today we will keep it like yesterday, mostly sunny. if anyone gets an isolated shower, i think far northwest suburbs will see it but not very high odds of that happening. it is in and around the beltway and points south that we will have mostly sunny skies. we are in good shape. 60s for you. no rain. blue skies above. the afternoon we will keep it that way. like yesterday in the middle 80s. the seven-day forecast is a few minutes away. angie has the traffic now. good morning. good morning. happy tuesday. half way through the 6:00 hour. we are beginning with a look at virginia roads. 95 northbound looking at a 24 to 25 minute ride to get from dale boulevard to the fairfax county parkway. that's just volume.
no incidents or accidents there. over to the realtime graphics we go or not. we will take a live shot a of the inner loop from 95 to 66 no problems. drivers zipping by here. on the outer loop the same situation overall. a little sun glare as a factor this morning and then a little congestion building between new hampshire and georgia avenue. finally we will wrap with a map. 95 and the bw parkway. nothing but green cars telling us drivers are moving at speed. now over to andrea. today fans worldwide will say good-bye to michael jackson. his family will hold a private funeral in the hollywood hills. the rest of us will focus our attention on today's memorial service. >> ticket to michael jackson's performances used to be the hottest tickets in town and the
same thing is happening right now. one of the greatest memorials ever and could even crash the internet. >> i never thought i would get this opportunity. >> reporter: but she did get the opportunity and mona austin is jumping for joy. >> the golden ticket! >> reporter: the bristow, virginia resident will be among the 18,000 people packing the l.a. staples center and the nokia center for michael jackson's memorial. >> it would be great to see his brothers, the jackson five perform for him one more time. >> reporter: no word on whether that will happen, but stevie wonder, lionel ritchie, mariah carey and jennifer hudson are some of the stars that will perform. >> this is the best entertainers there. >> one group police hope won't be there the tens of thousands of fans that didn't get tickets. the streets around both venues have been barricaded to discourage the crowds. there are several ways to watch
it live. drive to fredericksburg virginia. the marquee south point nine theater will be showing it and on facebook and my space provided the traffic isn't so huge it crashes those site and i understand, you have another way folks can watch. >> that's right. cbs will have live coverage of the memorial. you can watch it beginning at 1:00 p.m. here's how that will impact our broadcast schedule for today. -- police investigating the death of mcnair say his 21-year- old girlfriend bought the handgun at the scene. last night her nephew said that she said police told him they were almost sure his aunt was the shooter. police have not confirmed that
report. police are waiting for the results of ballistic and toxicology tests before they issue a final report. a memorial for mcnair will be thursday in nashville. he will be buried in his hometown in mississippi. pentagon officials say the air force is developing a in video sensor program and assigning 2500 new analysts to help with the war in afghanistan. they will gather and interpret the flood of aerial surveillance data coming from the war front and get it back to the troops on the ground. the technology will be available for deployment to the war zone on a limited basis early next year. monday was the deadliest day for u.s. forces in afghanistan in nearly a year. bombs and bullets killed seven american troops. taliban militants also claimed on a militant website that they are holding an american soldier who the u.s. military says might have been captured last week. this morning the associated press is reporting a suspected
u.s. missile attack in pakistan near the afghan border the missiles which are believed to be launched by unmanned american planes killed 12 suspected militants. the united states has launched 40 missile strikes against targets in the same region since last august. later today, minnesota's new junior senator al franken is scheduled to be sworn in. franken arrived yesterday afternoon to officially move to his new office. his arrival is months after he counts and legal wrangling which ended him in him leaving a seat once held by republican norm coleman. it is time for another living smart report. jessica doyle has senior back with a major agreement to get health care coverage for millions of americans. >> this is a major step for health care reform. it is being consider. the nations hospitals have agreed to pick up part of the cost for expanded health care
coverage. the "washington post" reports the hospital industry agreed last night to contribute $155 billion over ten years. that will help to put the bill for insuring 47 million americans without health coverage. most of the contributions will come from an agreement to accept lower medicare and medicaid payments and there will be a reduction in what hospitals get to care for uninsured. virginia is closing nearly after of the interstate rest areas. all but one of the 19 rest areas shutting down will close the doors on july 21st. officials are struggling to close the gap in the transportation budget. and a washington institution is about to close its doors. last call at nathans in georgetown is sunday night. the 40-year-old restaurant and bar sits on prime real estate on the corner of wisconsin and m street but nathans couldn't survive the economic reality of the day. this is somewhat surprising nauseous because when we talked to the owner a couple of months ago she was hopeful because she
had secured a month to month less lease that was favorable. >> but things got worse and they couldn't survive. that's too bad. the state of maryland has new weapons in the fight against comebacks. three prosecutors are being assigned to a new gang unit. that's a record number of prosecutors tackling the problem. u.s. attorney rod rosenstein is behind the new strategy. police busted a ring of drug smugglers who hid heroin inside of stuffed animals. they say it was a multimillion- dollar operation that used teddy bears to smuggle heroin from the bronx to new jersey. police shut down the operation on thursday when they raided a bronx apartment. neighbors were surprised it was happening next door. >> i have been living here nine years and this is something that is a shock to everybody. it is a quiet neighborhood. police arrested 12 people and seized 3-pounds of marijuana. gay marriages performed in other states could soon be
recognized in maryland if one lawmaker has his way. and metro transit sets a july 4th holiday record. time to focus on virginia's weather and traffic. >> we have nice weather for virginia this morning. we found crystal clear skies and temperatures looking good. look at the satellite and radar loop. got to like what i see. no rain in sight for you across virginia. instead we are waking up to temperatures comfortable in the 60s because few upper 50s as you get to the west. as we plan ahead for today we will take a trip close to 90 as we look at gainesville. 87 chantilly and orange 88 sunny skies. nice day across the commonwealth. angie has the roads across virginia. >> good morning. we are keeping an eye on the local roads in the old dominion. columbia pike and walter reed, finding hardly any traffic. one two three cars stopped at a light. in fairfax the same situation.
this intersection, all of these roads are checking out fine. and finally finish up with a fly of the dulles toll road headed from the green pais past -- greenway past the airport, before the capital beltway. lanes are wide open and drivers are moving at speed. 38 minutes after the 6:00 hour. we'll be right back.

sounds. >> reporter: he says he used 20 plus years of experience in taking care of babies to create the cd and emic the sound that lulls them to sleep while inside of the belly but there is not a lullaby on the cd. >> there is coffee grinders, blood flow sounds. >> using white noise is not a new concept but they say this cd seems to bring the elements together in a mix of soothing sound. these parents are sold but we had to see it for ourselves. isabella is crying but when the sounds for silence come on. she stops. >> let's try that again with the baby in her crib and mom completely out of sight [ crying ] >> wow. that was anita brickman
reporting. to find out more about sounds for silence go to wusa9.com and click on living well. well, let's go to kristin fisher. she's standing by in the web center. what's happening on the web? >> well, andrea, this is really cool. one of the most important and ancient books is now available on-line in its original form. i'm talking about the oldest- known bible in the world. it was written 1600 years ago and contains the oldest complete copy of the new testament. it was discovered in an egyptian monastery, 160 years ago. but now, thanks to an international collaboration called the codex sinaiticus project. it is available with anyone with access to the internet around the world. go to this website and i will have a link on my blog email@example.com and here you can learn more about the bible.
right here you can learn more habit the project but the real gem is here on see the manuscript. click there and this is what will pop up and you can view in great detail every surviving page of this bible, all handwritten in greek. you can go through the passages. i just clicked on psalms and what it will do is you can zoom in and see the original text in greek. it will pull it up in a larger form over here and translates it down here for you. i'm not going to read it but you can go and check it out for yourself. the other neat thing the site does is in addition to translating it, it soalwill zoom in and show you how this sobiblhas been repaired and restored over its 160 year history. as you can imagine this is of particular importance for lib lick call and religiou scholars all over the world. this bible includes two books that are not part of the ofal
cifi new testament and seven books that are not in the old testament and the new testament books are in a different order and very important passages are missing including versus dealing with the resurrection of jesus. so this on-line project is becoming a very big deal in the world of biblical scholars. but it is great for just, the e avciagerpers agwho wants to g on-line and check out one of these ancient manuscripts. again it is the oddest known bible in the entire world. the bottom line is this project is pretty much giving everyone the opportunity to connect directly with a famous manuscript and again i will have a link on my blog firstname.lastname@example.org. it is pretty cool. >> absolutely. thank you very much. howard is enjoying vacation time an kim is enjoying the morning hours with us. >> i am. howard has been facebooking pictures, too, if you are his friend from his vacation.
