EYEWITNESS NEWS REPORTER LESLIE RUBIN IS LIVE IN THE STUDIO TO TAKE US INSIDE A PROGRAM TRAVELING THE STATE TO INSPIRE MIDDLE SCHOOL AGED GIRLS TO NOT ONLY TAKE A STAND, BUT TO GET BACK ON THEIR FEET...
LESLIE @ MONWALL/KMON
CAUSING HER EMOTIONAL PAIN THAT SHE'S STILL WORKING TO OVERCOME....
"Not physically like they weren't beating me up or anything but it was just like mentally and they were saying words and just everyhting. Emotionally. So I ended up making a brick wall around myself so that way I wasn't around anyone for a long time."
HER STORY LIKE SO MANY OTHERS HER AGE, BUT IT'S AN INSPIRIATION FOR THIS WOMAN - JENNIFER WOTRING ....
"Let's think about that in terms of your self-esteem."
WOTRING IS ON A MISSION TO EMPOWER YOUNG GIRLS...
GIRLS LIKE 13-YEAR-OLD SAMEEYA (SAMIA) KING - .... ALSO A VICTIM OF BULLYING ... WHEN SHE WAS IN GRADE SCHOOL, SHE DEVELOPED A RARE DISEASE, CAUSING HER TO LOSE HER HAIR...
WOTRING RECENTLY BROUGHT THE WINGS PROGRAM FUNDED THROUGH A WAL-MART STATE GIVING GRANT TO THE DIGISO STUDIOS IN CHARLESTON. FOR TWO DAYS SHE BROUGHT IN 7TH AND 8TH GRADE GIRLS - KNOWING THE INTENSE NEED TO INSPIRE AND NUTURE THEM ..
TEACHING THEM IDEAS AND CONCEPTS THAT DON'T COME IN THE FORM OF A TEXTBOOK. THINGS LIKE LEADERSHIP.
"We can determine our attitude and our happiness, not someone else."
"Eveybody know what a backstabber is?"
AND THE DANGERS OF BULLYING....
"Is bullying always physical?"
LESSON AFTER LESSON - MESSAGE AFTER MESSAGE - AT FIRST GIRLS LOOK DISINTERESTED - BUT THROUGHOUT THE DAY, THEY OPEN UP - THEY ENGAGE, AND THEY SHARE THEIR STORIES ABOUT HOW HARD IT CAN BE JUST TO GO TO SCHOOL...
"They don't like how you achieve yourself or how much self-esteem you have about yourself so they try to bring you down."
BULLYING TAKES ITS TOLL ON CHILDREN ACROSS THE U.S. FOR EVERY 100 KIDS IN MIDDLE SCHOOL, EIGHT ARE BULLIED EVERY DAY, SEVEN ARE BULLIED EVERY WEEK, AND 33 ARE BULLIED ONCE IN A WHILE, ACCORDING TO THE SUBSTANCE ABUSE AND MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES ADMINISTRATION.
"I know that I don't have high self-esteem at all from being bullied."
"On a daily basis I kind of like get annoyed by it and I try to not pay attention to it but on the inside it really does hurt whenever people say stuff but I just try to say oh yeah, sure, okay, whatever."
IT'S INFORMAITON LIKE THAT - THAT THE WINGS PROGRAM USES TO GET THESE GIRLS ATTENTION...
"You can see that it makes a difference. They want to be here. They want to come back. They want to do another day. So that's what we're hoping that through addtional funding we can make this an ongoing process."
"If I never see these girls again. I want them to be more sensitive to others who have experienced bullying. I want them to have tools in their toolkit for dealing with it."
CONVERSATIONS THAT NEED TO BE HAPPENING WITH YOUR KIDS....
"Do you think what you see in the mirror is exactly how others see you? "No."
AND GIVING THESE GIRLS THE INFORMATION AND KNOWLEDGE THEY NEED TO BE BETTER ROLE MODELS ... FRIENDS...AND LEADERS....
"They left feeling that they had a group to talk to. They have each other to talk to. They're not alone when they are feeling all of these pressures."
A FEELING FOR TAYLOR BERRY SHE HOPES TO PASS ON TO OTHERS IN HER SHOES....
"I don't want people to give up and to think that they're not anything like I did. I still do, sort of, but it's not near as bad as it's been before."
G PROTECTING YOUR KIDS
-EXPERTS SAY YOU SHOULD HOLD FAMILY MEETINGS TO TEACH EMPATHY, SENSITIVITY, AND VALUES

TROUT IN CLASSROOM
EYEWITNESS NEWS ANCHOR PATRICK MCMURTRY TELLS US MORE ABOUT THE TROUT IN THE CLASSROOM PROGRAM IN THIS WEEK'S WEST VIRGINIA WILDLIFE.
Amanda Craig's school is here after a nearly year long committement to raising a bunch of fingerlings ready to be released today.
That's a lot of work, but it's also a lot of fun, especially today when these little guys get to go free, and their little managers get to feel like proud parents watching their little ones leave the nest. They learned a lot this year.
That's some good stuff, you can tell these kids are committed to their trout. They have been since the very beginning.
That's the beginning of wildlife management, and maybe one day one of these bright kids will make a profession out of working with animals. For WVWL, PM EWN

OBAMA ON IRS
THE PRESIDENT CONDEMNING THE GOVERNMENT AGENCY FOR TARGETING CONSERVATIVE GROUPS FOR EXTRA TAX SCRUTINY...
HE SAYS HE WILL DO WHATEVER HE CAN IN HIS POWER TO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN AGAIN:
"I have reviewed the treasury's watch dog report and the misconduct they uncovered is inexcusable. Americans are right to be angry about it and I am angry about it. I will not tolerate this action in any agency, but especially the IRS - given the power that it has and the reach that it has in all of our lives.
LAWMAKERS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE POLITICAL AISLE HAVE REACTED STRONGLY TO THE SCANDAL...
HOUSE SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER EVEN GOING AS FAR AS TO SAY THOSE RESPONSIBLE BELONG IN JAIL.
AS KRISTINE FRAZAO REPORTS, IT'S BROUGHT BACK MEMORIES OF ANOTHER TIME IN OUR HISTORY.
IT'S A MOMENT TRAPPED IN ONE OF THE DARKEST TIMES IN AMERICAN POLITICAL HISTORY, AFTER A LONG INVESTIGATION REVEALED A PRESIDENT WHO HAD SPIED ON POLITICAL OPPONENTS, HAD THE I-R-S AUDIT HIS ENEMIES...AND LIED REPEATEDLY TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
NATS OF NIXON
IT'S A HISTORY SOME ARE NOW TRYING TO RESURRECT
I've never seen anything like this in the past except in the Nixon years.
INHOFE RADIO SOUND
This is going to go down as the biggest cover-up in history. ( butt
together) people may be starting to use the 'I word' " before long.
"The 'I word' meaning impeachment." "Yeah."
SO IS THERE A CONNECTION?
Distinguished Professor of History, American University Watergate was
a unique episode in American history as a fundamental attempt to undermine our democracy and undermine our government. 0051 (WHITE FLASH OR CUTAWAY) we really havent seen anything like that before or since.
ALLAN LICHTMAN IS A DISTINGUISHED PROFESSOR OF HISTORY AT AMERICAN UNIVERSITY AND SAYS DESPITE THE DIFFERENCES, HE'S NOT SURPRISED SOME CONNECTIONS ARE BEING MADE.
Allan J. Lichtman
Distinguished Professor of History, American University
Richard Nixon also used the IRS to go after his enemies. We dont know
of course if president obama was in any way involved in the irs
targeteing of onservative groups but it is somewhat Nixonian
SOME REPUBLICANS ALSO POINT TO A CHANGED STORY ABOUT THE TERRORIST ATTACK IN BENGHAZI LAST SEPTEMBER THAT KILLED FOUR AMERICANS AS A COVER-UP...AND RECENT ADMISSIONS BY THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT THAT THEY SPIED ON ASSOCIATED PRESS REPORTS BY SEIZING PHONE RECORDS AND RECORDINGS.
A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY HERE- IT'S CERTAINLY NOT THE FIRST TIME THESE CONNECTIONS HAVE BEEN DRAWN.
BUT LITCHMAN CAUTIONS... A RUSH TO RAISE THE IMPEACHMENT FLAG TO OUST A PRESIDENT MAY BACKFIRE AS IT DID DURING THE BILL CLINTON IMPEACHMENT ERA.
They made it look political and low and behold the Democrats actually
gained seats in teh mid term elections of 1998, the first time since
the administration of FDR in 1934 that the presidential party had won
a mid term election. I'M KF REPORTING
THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS DENYING THESE CLAIMS. HIS SPOKESMAN JAY CARNEY SAYS PEOPLE WHO MAKE THE OBAMA NIXON COMPARISONS NEED TO CHECK THEIR HISTORY.
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND SALT
BRAZILIAN RESEARCHERS STUDIED MORE THAN SEVENTY SENIORS .. SIXTEEN HAD NORMAL BLOOD PRESSURE READINGS..
ALL WERE GIVEN THREE PIECES OF FRENCH BREAD WITH VARYING AMOUNTS OF SALT ON EACH.
MORE THAN TWO-THIRDS OF THOSE WITH HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE PREFERRED THE BREAD WITH THE HIGHEST CONCENTRATION OF SALT...
COMPARED TO ONLY ONE THIRD OF THOSE WITH NORMAL BLOOD PRESSURE READINGS.
WHILE PREVIOUS RESEARCH HAS POINTED TO A GENETIC PREDISPOSITION TO CRAVING SALTY FOODS..
AUTHORS SAY THERE IS NO WAY TO KNOW WHO MAY HAVE THIS TRAIT...
YOGA HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
RESEARCHERS TRACKED NEARLY SIXTY MEN AND WOMEN FOR SIX MONTHS...
ONE GROUP FOLLOWED A SPECIAL DIET AND DID NOT DO YOGA... ONE GROUP DID YOGA ALONE... AND ANOTHER GROUP DID YOGA ALONG WITH A SPECIAL DIET.
THE GROUP DOING YOGA ALONE TWO TO THREE TIMES A WEEK SAW A THREE POINT DROP IN BLOOD PRESSURE..
WHILE THE OTHER TWO GROUPS SAW SMALLER DROPS IN THEIR READINGS..
THE STUDY DID NOT PROVE THAT YOGA CAUSED BLOOD PRESSURE TO DECLINE..
BUT STUDY AUTHORS BELIEVE YOGA WOULD BE A USEFUL TOOL IN HELPING PEOPLE MAINTAIN PROPER BLOOD PRESSURE.
