forecast. ñóñó
7:06 am
7:07 am
>> good morning. we're starting off with a few high clouds out there. we will see them throughout day a nice little mix of sun and clouds and we also had some stray showers pop up around westminster. some of them tried to move into belair as well. we have a stationary front with a mix of warmer and cooler air around the pennsylvania area. that will kick a few showers in our direction. most of us should stay dry but our neighbors out west are being hit with early winter. low pressure just working
7:08 am
around the region and packing some really cold air. look at the temperatures behind that front. 31 in parts of colorado. 44 as far down south as new mexico. 37 up north but ahead of that we are in what's considered the warm sector. ahead of the cooler air before it makes its way in so right now closer to the region. 67 at the airport and around ocean city temperatures at 63 degrees at this time. here's what we are expecting today. temperatures between 84 and 89, partly sunny with a stray shower possible. winds coming in at about 8 miles per hour. your game planner 76. 87 degrees by 4:00 p.m. this evening with partly sunny skies. we are well above average, people. 70 degrees are our average. 7 is our forecasted high. 17 degrees above where we should be out there.
7:09 am
on the bay today, west winds at about five norths. high tide will be 7:58 p.m. the ravens taking on the dolphins in miami. partly cloudy skies with temperatures between 83-86 degrees. thundershowers in miami are expected but hopefully it will trail off before the game. >> now tropical storm karen barely holding on to her tropical storm stath us the. some of the problems with karen are 2007 center of low pressure here but the stronger thunderstorms are about 80 miles away from her. you kind of need those to come together to get things going for that hurricane. also, she is not in a great wind environment. the winds are what we call sheer, so they are going in different directions. that doesn't help her as well but when she is done with the gulf she is expected to move
7:10 am
her remnants in our direction which could grease our rain chances in the coming days. we have showers here associated with a cold front that will be coming in 9:00 a.m. sunday and this is going to be the remnants of karen. you will notice she will be around the atlantic area and moving our direction in the coming days. so a quick look at the seven-day. 86 tomorrow with slight rain chances. >> well, you've witnessed him sprint towards the finish line in the preakness and the belmont. >> but after achieving that victory for many horses involved their future is pretty questionable. how some are making use in al second career is stuart pittman. how are things going on at pimlico? >> they are going to show us what else they can do besides racing. >> what exercises will they be show casing today? >> we have horses playing polo
7:11 am
and horses herding cattle, barrel racing, jumping. just about anything a horse can do they will be doing on the track today. >> this is amazing because there's so many horses that end up in that unwanted category. so talk about how important it is that you have something like this. >> well, it's critical. if these horses don't get trained for another career then they don't get another career and just like us, they need jobs so we have 26 trainers who have taken horses throughout the summer and they are really educating us in what these horses can do and we're encouraging many to get an ex-thoroughbred racehorse as their horse. >> this is proving these are good, vyible animals. >> they are probably the most intelligent breed of horse and very sensitive so that makes them easier to train. you do need to know what you're doing and you have to know how
7:12 am
to ride. but once you do that and you work with them they can do just about anything and they love to work. >> give us the basic on today. what time, the cost, all that. >> $18 gets you in. it's 12:30 to about 6:00 p.m. and it will end with the western invasion where we have the cattle coming in where we will be doing team sorting, the famous jockey will be riding with some other famous jockeys and all afternoon we will be there. >> before we let you go i have to say i just looked at this. the hot buttered nuggets will be playing today. that's a great name. thank you so much for joining us this morning. sounds like a good day. >> it will be. thank you. >> hot buttered nuggets.

7:16 am
digital education. >> and so the opportunity to go to new york and spend time with experts in the field and have these sitdown conversations and listen to what's happening around the country and around the world gives us a special opportunity to baltimore county is excited to participate in this education issue. >> and the "education nation" report will start with tim tooten monday. >> speaking of education, how do you know when your child needs a tutor? melissa is here with ideas. >> thank you for having me. >> what's a big signal your kids need help? we'll get into specifics but does it take them coming to you? >> taking them coming to you, not likely. the bigger thing you have to pay attention to is other signs like behavioral changes, lack
7:17 am
of confidence is typically a big sign. >> so signs your child needs tutoring help, the teacher expresses some concern. >> the teacher is the one with your child day in and day out, you want to pay attention. they will see behavioral changes and frustrations and drops in grades. >> you mentioned loss of confidence. is that expressed in, well, i can't do this. >> that's typically what you see, i don't want to. i can't attitude coming into play. they start negative self talk getting down on themselves. those are big flags. >> how about if they are there for hours and hours trying to do something. >> that's what we hear is homework is turning into a three-hour or four-hour or five-hour eventual every night. it could mean the work is too difficult for them and you may
7:18 am
need to look at getting outside help. >> many will also tell you homework should take this amount of time. 70 minutes a night or 10 minutes, so you should be able to get an idea from the teacher. >> absolutely. >> changes in attitudes and behaviors? >> a lot of times you will see that they are distracted and unfocused and they get that unwillingness to try. we have to pay attention to behaviors as symptoms and not the cause of the bigger issue. >> and family stress, how does that contribute? >> when you're spending four-five hours a night it leads to more frustration for the parntsde then the child and it's a cycle. sometimes you need to take a step back and get some outside help. >> and i think there's always one parent that's better at it. >> and i think there's always i was not the patient one. you have to figure out which
7:19 am
parent is best for helping out with the homework. >> yes, family dynamic plays a part but at the end of the day they are still mom and dad so sometimes you need to take a step back. >> and huntington learning center is a great place to look for that outside help. >> yes. >> dr. kim hammond when we come back, with your pet questions. but first here's a look at what's going on around town.

7:23 am
pincher and every time she poops, she turns around and eats it. i try giving her fecal medicine. what causes a dog to eat her sneeshes and my sister's dog does the same thing. >> first of all, let me address the discussion about if she is giving a product that doesn't work. >> if you read the directions on that product it's really just msg believe it or not. you have to give it each time the dog eats so if you give a treat or snack you've got have that product and it's got to be a full dose. the idea that it tastes pretty good coming in but doesn't afterwards so -- >> so it gives them a bad taste association? >> yes. >> you would think it would be bad tasting enough but why do they do it? >> but the point is she may have the right product but not using it properly. so the other thing is this -- one thing about this.
7:24 am
suppose the dog has worms and is eating its own poop. the short answer to a short question is, physically, prevent your dog from eating its poop. you see it pooping. take it away. because dogs do that. >> yes, you have to do that. >> but it is a real serious problem. >> ok. i just got a new puppy and my guests -- my friend suggested i micro chip it. >> if you have a new animal, this may be the single most important thing you do besides vaccination. >> we have a lot of animals that have gotten lost. mike chipping is a small tchape goes under skin and over the back and any dog or cat that runs away, wherever it goes, the pound or spca, they come home. if you don't have your animal mike chipped, get it mike rowe chipped. >> and it's not very expensive?
7:25 am
>> yes, but losing your dog? >> it's like $20-$40. >> i would get my dog micro chipped before i did anything else. it gags is healthy and and throws up after it eats. >> first make sure your animal is is not sick. go to your veterinarian and get blod work, x-ray, physical exam but then eliminate vary i can't believes and sometimes the reats are bad so go on hills or science diet generally they will be fine. >> stay with us. you're watching 11 news saturday morning.

7:36 am
clouds. we can see that men fasting on satellite radar. thanks to disturbance to our north area as well. that is moving into the region. we see the warm and cooler air draped spilling a few clouds in our direction and it's eastbound sparked a few showers out there. westminster saw a brief shower pass through and belair looks like they have maybe some drizzle moving through the area. the rest of us are pretty dry and we will only have a chance for stray showers. when looking at a strong low pressure system with really cold air associated with a look at behind in the low 30's. we are in the warm section of this system. so we have our temperatures that will be above average, temperatures in the 60's ahead of that front. it is 67 at the airport right now and 74 in downtown baltimore.

17 degrees above average. we should be at 70, instead we will be between 84-89. southwest winds eight to 10 miles an hour. 83 by noon and 87 degrees by 4:00 p.m. this evening. winds on the bay from five norths. 1-foot waves are possible. ravens taking on the 2k068 ince in miami tomorrow. partly cloudy skies with temperatures between 83 and 86 degrees. there will be a 30% chance for showers. now we turn our attention to tropical storm karen. moving to the north at about 10 miles an hour and the remnants for cary could come in our direction and give us a higher chance for showers. this will be the remnants of karen moving her way around the atlanta area. let's keep our eyed on it as it
7:38 am
moves to the north and gives us increased rain chances. looks like we will get a nice soaking there tuse into 7:00 a.m. looks like we will still have the showers going. as you look at the seven-day forecast, temperatures around 87 today, 86 sunday. a stray shower possible. for the most part staying dry. we're 73 tuesday with another 60% chance for showers and few isolated thunderstorms. >> have you ever heard of a spinal compression fracture? they are fairly common especially as people get older. most of the time they can heal without the need for surgery. >> judith gunnery was trying to corral her dog when she fell. >> i went flat on my back and i never knew such pain.
7:39 am
i went to the emergency room and they told me i had a compression fracture of l-1. >> this is an image of what a typical l-1 fracture looks like. at first she was given pain medication and advised to rest but when her spine wouldn't heal she decided to try surgery. the doctor performed percu taniuos surgery. >> it's cement that stabilizes the fracture so there's no more micro movement of the bone. the doctor says in most cases surgery is not necessary. >> we can manage patients who suffer with conservative care but when conservative care fails and pain is overwhelming and debilitating to the patient, then this can be a good option assuming all the puzzle pieces fit and it's the
7:40 am
right clinical choice. >> the surgery was quick and she felt better right away. >> i could feel relief from it. it was probably instant really ,if i could say, because the bone was strong again. >> that's one of the most graphing things with this procedure is often as soon as they emerge from anesthesia their back pain can be gone if not significantly improved. >> and dr. maine joins us now with more information. good morning. >> good morning. >> who typically has these kinds of fractures? >> the most common presentation is an elderly woman as you get older if you develop osteoporosis, the incidents can be quite common. >> sometimes they are completely a-symptom atic. sometimes they result in
