marley. rita marley joins us to talk about her work and her late husband. it is an interview you don't want to miss. >> we are honored to have all of our guests today. tucker barnes, i just left him hard at work refining the forecast as we speak. what is going? >> beautiful conditions. back into the sunshine and warm temperatures. setting us up for a fantastic weekend. let's get to the numbers. still cold. 40 at ronald reagan. lots of 30s. you can see we are at 33 in winchester. 33 in hagerstown. betterr to the south. we got into this weather pattern. lots of sunshine in the forecast. the satellite/radar is showing almost nothing. a little cloud cover off the coast. chicago has a cold front that
will not get in here until late monday and tuesday. until then, more fine weather with a warming trend this afternoon and as we get into saturday and little miss -- saturday and sunday. lots of sunshine and beautiful afternoon. 64 degrees. winds nice and light at 5 miles an hour. more details on the weekend forecast coming up in a minute. allison. thank you. our top story this friday morning, a great weekend to spend time on the national mall. the weather will have many heading out to the museums and monuments in our area. >> along with the weather is the free admission into the smithsonian museum. sherri ly has the details. >> reporter: when you have $4 trillion to cut from the national debt over the next 10 years, everything is on the table.
the president's debt commission is going after the smithsonian and the national zoo. under the proposal, it is time to end the free ride. cutting $225 million in government funding in 2015. the system's 30 million visit -- visitors would pay $7.50 to visit. fees would be raised by about 25 cents at parks that already charge admission like shenandoah. opposition is building to the committee's recommendations from the right and left. one of the controversial is raising the social security age
to 69. >> that would affect a lot of people. a lot of people have that built into their homeowner experience and how important that is. that would significantly impact that. >> reporter: remember, this is just a recommendation of the president's bipartisan commission. none of this is set in stone. the hardest part is getting all of this past congress. in fact, when this issue was brought up, one california congress member who sits on the smithsonian's board said i will fight tooth and nail against admission fees. that is the latest here in the southwest, back to you. >> thank you. our facebook fans are sounding off about the admissions. many worry about how that impacts school field trips. one writes:
thanks to all of our fans for the feedback. allison, it looks like the white house is giving in. the president is laying the ground work to extend the bush- era tax cuts. as doug luzader reports from capitol hill, it would be a major reversal for the administration. >> reporter: this may be the first real evidence of the republican mid term election victories. >> i will not negotiate here in seoul. >> reporter: maybe not, but in south korea, it was clear the president would have to give in to republicans on taxes. >> my number one priority is making sure that we make the middle class tax cuts permanent. that we give certainty to the 98% of americans who are affected by those tax breaks. >> reporter: but to do that, to extend some of the tax cuts that president bush signed
into law during the first term, the president will have to give in to republicans and all of the tax cuts should stay at the current levels. it was david axelrod that tipped his hat to what amounts to a tax retreat. leaving some to wonder why they did not hold out for something in return for the republicans and john boehner. >> my own take is axelrod let go of a negotiating position that they wanted to hold over john boehner and the gop. it is possible he was just signaling to the community this would happen. >> reporter: it will be a tough pill to swallow for the most ardent supporters. they may get a temporary extension of the rates. not the permanent ones the republicans want. there is an urgency to get this done soon before the higher tax rates go into effect next year. in washington d.c., doug luzader, fox 5. president
barack obama has wrapped up the g-20 summit saying he and world leaders have put the global economy back on track. he disputed reports that the final statement showed that the summit had failed. >> it is puzzling to me that the reporting is all talking about conflict when the communication reflects a hard- won consensus. >> the president is now in japan. it is the 4th and final stop on his 10-day trip to asia. he arrived early this morning and is getting ready for another economic summit. a fox 5 follow-up. an exclusive now. we learned a former georgetown

offered a free trip to anyone aboard. some say they could not face another cruise, but others would not get dealt the same hand again. >> we will be back. they gave us a free one. what are the chances? i'm a math person. what are the chances this would happen twice to the same person? i'm going with the odds. we are coming back. >> reporter: despite reports to the contrary, the cruise was never a spam-cation. spam was never served to passengers or crew aboard the ship. >> what are the chances? i heard on the radio that one guy sent his parents on the cruise. he previously sent his parents on a hot air balloon trip and the balloon crashed in a corn field. coming up, wives of football players helping female fans embrace football. and staying true to their style and enjoying a healthy

about your show and some of the others. yours is different from the others. why do people agree to come on your show and air their dirty laundry? some of them have had rather questionable behavior. why do they agree to talk about this on tv? >> you know when it comes to questionable behavior, i'm not the church lady. anybody can do whatever they want to do. when it comes down to taking advantage of another person, that is when they will end up with "swift justice." they have been taken out of sys to air their dirty laundry. they want results. they want money. they don't always get it here at "swift justice." they are plucked out of a court system. we give them justice and we make it swift. >> that is one of the things i wonder. how they get to you. they are taken out of the court system and they come to you.
have you been surprised with the cases you have dealt with so far? >> i'm surprised every day. every week of shooting, i get large binders of all of the evidence that we receive. i review and read every word of it and write up my rulings and decisions ahead of time. between 35-40% of the time after i hear the witnesses, i change my ruling because it is never the same in person as it is in black and white. >> interesting. you have some interesting cases coming up during the next couple of weeks. can you preview that for us? >> yes. one i heard that was a disturbing case. it took me a long time to hear it. it was a guy who ran a
christian radio station called cronk for christ. crazy drunk for christ. he was paying or not paying his employees at the church out of the church collection plate. not okay. that was a big one. many of his employees showed up. one girl who had gone to broadcasting school and got a job and never got paid from him. had the guts to bring the lawsuit. >> we look forward to that. >> there is a lot of praying and singing going on. >> listen, speaking of big cases. >> there is a little damnation at the end. >> you know one of the cases we have been following in the washington d.c. area is the chandra levy case. what are your thoughts on the case as it winds down? >> i will be blunt. you have a problem when the state, the prosecution, has to drop counts in the middle of a
case. the state did drop the sex attack counts. they dropped them after putting up the case. i try carefully to only give to a jury what i thought i could prove. if i could not prove a count, forget it. you lose credibility when you start out and say you will prove one and two and three and four. i did not do well on three and four. it did not happen. that is a concern. they also, and i'm not saying ingmar guandique didn't do it, that is not what i'm saying. i'm saying the state has to worry about it. not the underwear or the clothes she was wearing at the type of the attack. that is the issue the state has to deal with. somebody on the jury may think i think con condit -- condit did it. did he hire somebody to do it?
the main piece of evidence they have is the confession they claim happened behind jailhouse rules that was overheard by a cell mate. another cell mate that was set to testify to that did not come to trial. there are a lot of issues they deal with. not even mentioning that dna was on her tights. it did not match condit or ingmar guandique. nobody. they do have some problems. the strength is this guy pled guilty to two fingerprint crimes on two other women in the same park and the same time span. he pled guilty. he said he did it. they are fingerprint crimes. >> nancy grace, always a straight shooter. continued success with the show. thank you for joining us. >> thank you.
>> there you have it. she is being recognized for her work for others and this morning, rita marley joins us live in studio to talk about the latest honor and her late husband. this week's ask allison question has to do with charities. they may not be exactly what you think they are. more coming up.
i'm happy to answer it. you are asking can a store call itself a thrift store if it makes money instead of raises money for a charity. in some cases, yes. just because it says thrift store, it can be looked at as a consignment store. some stores are for profit. there is nothing illegal about that. they have to tell you they cannot say not-for-profit and go ahead and make money off it. they are for a charitable mission store like salvation army. when you shop at the other stores, compare them to a consignment shop. some stores affiliate themselves. you don't know the percentage that goes to the needy. when you spend your money at goodwill or salvation army, you are supporting a charitable mission. it helps the poor and homeless
and other programs. if you want to make sure your money is helping others, stick to goodwill or salvation army. make your own informed decision. fox 5 has done a report, tony, in the past, where you dumped your clothes and things likes that. those do go for profit. you have to make the decision. you don't get a receipt. if you go to salvation army or goodwill, you know where your money is going to it. is confusing. that is the broader answer. viewer, if you need more on that, let me know and i'll do digging off camera. that is the big answer. >> thank you. >> if you have a question you would like me to take on, go to myfoxdc.com and click on the morning tab and follow the link to ask allison. this is exciting. she is the wife of bob marley and artist in her own right.
rita marley is being honored for her work. she is joining us live in studio to talk about that honor and talk about bob marley. and holly is cooking up a good time at the convention center. details are next. it's great. i eat anything that i want. key lime pie, pineapple upside down cake, raspberry cheesecake... ...yeah, every night its something different. oh yeah yeah...she always keeps them in the house. no no no, i've actually lost weight... i just have a high metabolism or something... ...lucky.
those who work unselfishly for people around the -- unselfishly for people around the world. >> i'm proud and honored and excited. like we would say, i live to see the day. it is a blessing. >> the day is here, but it has been here. you are a musician in your own right. founder of the bob marley and rita marley foundation. why is it important to continue the legacy? >> it started from where we came from in terms of coming from where we came from and giving back to the people who are experiencing the same thing we experienced. not being able to have it because you don't know what will happen tomorrow. you don't know if you can give back to the less privileged. >> you made it your mission to uplift the image of the people
in the eyes of the world. is that something that is still needed and you are still working toward? >> yes. it is still needed and we are asking for others to come forward and do what you can. give back. it is all over the world. especially in africa where the need is more than wanting. it is needing. it is a privilege that we are able to do that from our past experience. it is a blessing. >> you have done a lot to solidify your husband's legacy. the museum is there now and the recording company. you manage that as well. when you say the name bob marley and rita marley, they are synonymous with everything that the music and lifestyle stands for now. how have you been able to keep that legacy to strong do you think? i know that is a big question. >> it is easy for us.
itiss a family affair. the instinct is in you. it is an in-born gift from god. we did not go through training or college or university for that. it becomes easy and natural for us to do it. all of the kids and grand kids and everyone is musically inclined. >> that is a big thing. there is no way this will ever end? >> no. 81 grandchildren. >> that is a blessing. >> let me ask you. was there a moment you realized the marley name had eached a point that was almost iconic in standing? was there a moment when that happened? >> during the career time. usually you never have a black marley. marley is usually a white name. it was strange, but it was
something that we grabbed not by name, but by nature. we had something in us to give. we were being a model. >> there are so many songs, you know, i'm talking about little kids. my daughter had a bob marley shirt on for halloween. there are so many songs that live on. "could you be loved?" what is your favorite? >> all of them. all of them. i love all of bob's songs. i'm part of it, naturally. there is not one that i'm not on. i love all of them. >> you were there from scratch. you are there now. congratulations to you and your award. the awards areare available. it is at the marriott in northwest washington d.c. we will have the information on myfoxdc.com.
