seriously when they brought the story up. >> i would count myself to be a peer of his, so why would he address me, you know, by a slang word, a word i consider to be a slang word? i am called nanna by my grandchildren, but nobody calls me "grandma." i felt it was very disrespectful. >> besides not liking being called "grand maw" she apparently told the court she videotaped what was -- that incident but she was -- but that tape was not shown in court. the two accused principals, say the prosecuting, have more than enough experience to handle these types of situations. lowell melzer, wbal-tv woob. -- wbal-tv 11 news. >> police in harford county are searching for this man. he is believed to be 5' 3,"

produced by the mountains and the lake-effect so to speak. also there is a little disturbance here moving through. so the ripple in the atmosphere caused by that might be supporting that a little bit. also we have this clipper out to the west. a front helping to develop that and push it eastward. that will be coming across the mid-atlantic region later on today and tonight and increase chances for, if temperatures are right, if there is enough moisture, for some snow. clippers tend to be dry. snow chances minimal. partly cloudy today. to a great extent there may be more clouds. a flurry or snow shower skewed toward the end of the day. northwest winds 42 to 47 for the high. futurecast shows this cloudiness thickening up. later on this afternoon and this evening, especially, maybe a flurry developing in our area. a little better chance for accumulation in the west. everything dissipates and pulls

>> welcome back. a chinese alligator from the maryland zoo joins us this morning. he wants out. >> he's a chinese alligator? >> he is the only chinese alligator. he is significantly smaller than the american alligator. the 11-year-old american alligator would be 10 feet long. so i wouldn't handle him. yang is much smaller. it will take him 50 years to get up to seven feet. they grow much slower, and they have a very specific habitat
they live in. they live along the yangze river in china. that is the only place you can find them. this one has longer toes. the american alligator has some webbing in whereas the chinese does this -- does not. >> he's not as oriented. >> the maryland zoo of baltimore, we're getting around christmas here. >> we have a great gift shop. if you are a member and you come in, also, if you go on the web site, download tickets for people p if you are making baskets you could throw some zoo tickets in there. you can also come in and book a behind-the-scenes, which is a

>> john is here with another look outside. >> it is not bad. it is hard to describe the morning. we have seen a beautiful sunrise this morning. clouds tend to depom nature the scene right now. the cludes are coming from a little push of some weather, a little disturbance and lake-effect snows to the north of us. what we call a clipper out to the west in indiana now and ohio. it is moving along, clipping along at a good rate. this is all kind of closing in on us that's where all eyes will be during the day today to see if snow develops. we'll talk about the forecast when we come back.
>> $50 million given to the maryland county school systems. but they do not have much time to spend it. >> researchers show children enrolled in prescool school learning programs tend to be more successful in later years. >> i always tell my children, you don't want those adults saying words around you so you can't figure out what they are talking about, so we have to learn to read. >> maryland already knows how to spend its millions. it will help lay a foundation for primarily children from low income families.

>> across the moubs mountains of pennsylvania you can see that divot -- activity. this activity is aiming our direction, but it is also in the mountains. also, it is dry enough, where some of it is not hitting the ground. in other words, we're seeing snow verga. verga means it is in the air and not hitting the ground.
we'll see what happens with it all. in ocean city we see the waves coming in. the sun is still shining there, but here we have overcast skies in baltimore. the temperature is 38 degrees. 42 the reading at the inner harbor. 57% the humidity. 30.21 the barometric pressure, and a west wind at 8 miles an hour. the breeze has kept things stirred up a little bit. temperatures didn't fall all that much. i don't think in town we were much below the freezing point at all. current temperatures at annapolis 31 degrees. 36 in edgewood. salisbury 39 at the boardwalk in ocean city. 36 frederick. still in the 20's out in far western maryland. and we take a look at our satellite radar combination right now. and we can see a lot of cloud cover, especially from the northern bay area and northward up into pennsylvania and new
york state and back toward ohio, indiana, illinois. that's the cloud cover coming in our direction. we expect this clipper to generate a little snow activity. our forecast for today calls for a lot of clouds, chilly conditions, 42 to 47 the high. a snow shower of late. we're watching that stuff in pennsylvania to see what happens. the mountains will have a great effect on this as far as heating up what little moisture is with that pressure. northwest winds at 10 miles per hour. our indication is that we could
see a couple flurries, a brief snow shower. any indications will more than likely be out in far western maryland. no snow a problem out in san diego where clear skies are expected for the game tomorrow evening. evening out there, late afternoon here. chilly conditions, though. during the game, readings only in the low 50's. our forecast here as we go through the weekend, daytime highs in the 40's. a lot of clouds toward evening this evening overnight tonight, and in the morning sunday, that's when, if we get any at all, a flurry or two might develop. monday, tuesday, wednesday of next week accident we warm up a little above normal with temperatures and higher rain chance yes tuesday, wednesday, and on friday. >> bells palsy often strikes without warning leaving one side of the face airlinized -- paralyzed. when it happens, sometimes people think it is a stroke but not bells palsy.
but the two are very different. more on this morning's "women's doctor." >> after dinner her family noticed something terribly wrong happening to lisa before their eyes. >> as i was talking, my family was like, what's wrong with your face, and i'm like, what do you mean what's wrong with my face? i went in the mirror, it was like oh, my gosh. i went to brush my teeth and rinse my mouth and i couldn't hold water in my mouth. >> lisa believed she was having a stroke but found out she has bells palsy, temporary damage to the face from damaged facial nerves. >> i was crying. you really don't know what to do. >> michael sellman says even though bells palsy paralyzes one side of the face it is very different from a stroke that affects not just your side of the face but your arm and leg on the same side as well.
>> if you cannot wiggle your eyebrow or smile more likely than not this is bells palsy assuming you can still move your arm and leg without problems. if you can move your eyebrow and you cannot smile, that's more often than not a stroke. >> and what causes bells palsy? viral infecks? diabetes? even lyme disease. >> this is called bell's fee no one nba.com when the right eye closes but the left eye does not. you can see the white of her eye. >> lisa is taking medication for her symptoms and dr. spellman is encuveraged by her progress. >> i am very encouraged by your progress, and i think you will continue to improve. >> the doctor joins us this morning. thank you for coming in. >> thank you. >> what is bell's palsy?
>> bell's policiesy is when one side of your face suddenly becomes weak without any warning. >> all of a sudden? >> just all of a sudden. >> it is quite unpleasant to see that, and it causes a lot of angst and people come to the hospital emergency room worried they have had a stroke when really it is something a little more benign with one side of the face being paralyzed. >> that reaction to go to the emergency room a good thing to do? >> a very reasonable one. but a quick check at home would be to see if you can move your armor your leg. if you are not weak in your armor leg, it is probably bell's palsy. >> what causes it to come on suddenly? >> most of the time we don't know. we think it might be due to a virus. another growing cause in the baltimore area could be lyme
disease. it is associated with diabetes. >> how long does it take for someone to get over? >> in an uncomplicated case, between 30 and 0 days. -- 30 and 90 days. >> are certain people prone? >> in people that have diabetes it occurs more often and people around the age of 40. >> and men or women? >> equal. no difference between the two. >> but there is medication to treat it? >> yes. the key thing is to receive treatment quickly. treatment needs to be started within the first three days ideally. the pace and speed of recovery would be quick are if you can get treatment in three days. >> all right. thank you so much for coming in. have a good holiday. >> if you have questions or want a referral, call 1 hf 8 hundred -- call 1-800-md-mercy. >> max is here with reviews when we come back. first a look at last night's winning lottery numbers.
including hanging from a building in dubai. >> and family and friends take an adventure on the high seas in "alvin and the chip munks shipwrecked." they ended up on a desserted island. that looks adorable. those are some of the new movies out this weekend. >> i would personally like to thank the studios for not screening "alvin and the chipmunks." by the way, "mission impossible" is opening worldwide next week. it is getting great reviews. i have not seen it, but the reviews are great. >> so for even folks that are not tom cruise fans. >> remember when we were all tom cruise fans? those were the days. >> "sherlock holmes ." >> if you liked the first one, you will like this one. some people complained because they turned sherlock holmes into
an action figure. i thought it was an update for the character for these days, and i thought sherlock holmes was smart, sly, funny, and he used his wit to beat people up. he didn't just use brute strength. he had this great relationship with jude law playing watson. they really play up that funny movie aspect of it, the bromance. just like the first one. i think downy jr. is so great in this role, and he goes up against the evil moriarty played by jared harris. tons of fun. my only complainlt about this movie, it is about 20 minutes too long. they should have taken a scalpal to the first 10 and last 10 minutes. as it is, i like it a lot. if you liked the first one, you will like this one. >> and we have not seen the best
part, which is the previews. >> no, it is a long film. there is more to go. >> and "young adult"? >> i love this film. it is written by diablo cody. some people will not like it because it is sort of uncomfortable to watch. i like uncomfortable films. she plays a former homecoming queen from a small town in minnesota. she's living in minneapolis now, which is the big city. she comes back home with this idea that she can win back her high school beau. there is one tiny catch. not only is he married, but he has a new baby, and she is completely undaunted by this fact. she has this script in her mind, that you are going to dump -- >> the wife and the baby and go for her. >> she's an unsavory character. but charlize theron plays her so well. you kind of don't like her, but
you root for her in a way. the film comes to an incredibly awkward scene. very dark comedy. 3.5 stars. >> "shame"? >> "shame" is noteworthy because of a star-making performance. he was in "inglorious bastards." he's completely nude in it, ladies. he plays a successful ad agency worker, and his secret is he has a sex addiction. he's a normal person by day and a sex addict by day and night. he has internet happening at work. you feel like the walls are closing in on him and his addiction is going to be exposed. it is a very uncomfortable film to watch.
pantry to party. things you have in your house for the most part. common ingredients. we'll show you how to put them together. there are must ardses -- mustard s. we'll show you how we started this. this is a fried, spicy chick pea. that's sort of like peanuts, popcorn, potato chips. deep fry them. when they are deep fried and crispy. they come out with a little aye an pepper and salt and pepper. >> we have taken tuna fish, cesar dressing. we chopped artichokes nice olive blend.

>> child sex abuse scandals at penn state encouraged william ehrlich to review their standards. washington lawmakers have called for stronger child abuse reporting laws. the maryland board of riege voted unanimously to require a report to be filed within 48 hours by those that witness abuse or neglect on campus. individuals are also required to make a republican and or oral report to the local states attorney, and the local department of social as well as as well as the police. the policy affects all students and staff of the current state colleges in the system. chancellor kerwin said he was moved to review the policies to make sure the process is clear, reporting lines are established, and to take the extra steps to
make sure the policy southbounding followed. the next step will be training for all of those with reporting responsibilities so they know precisely what to do with when a complaint is filed. hopefully these methods will protect children in maryland and have abuse issues addressed immediately. immediately. maryland children deserve this
