Newscaster:

Saturday is the beginning of

garlic weekend in little Italy.

In sports, both the yankees and

the mets were off last night.

The yanks are in baltimore this

evening for a three-game series

With the orioles

And the mets

travel to los angeles

To begin the first of four

in dodger stadium.

Turning to the weather

Under blue skies,

we'll have a high of 65 degrees

Dropping down to a low of 48

overnight in manhattan.

Currently, it's 52 degrees

at central park

54 at jfk and 51 degrees

in newark.

As for the traffic, the f.D.R.

And the westside highway

Are moving well with only

light congestion so far.

The manhattan bridge

is also in good shape

With the williamsburg

and the brooklyn

Experiencing

some moderate delays.

The holland tunnel

is still jammed

As a result of

the surrounding construction

So you're better off taking

the g.W. Or the lincoln tunnel.

The b.Q.E. And the bronx

are, as usual, a nightmare.

Alternate side of the street

parking rules are in effect

And buses and subways are

running with only minor delays.

Wcbs time is now 6:54.

Now for the headlines:

The war of words between

mayor bruce lincoln

And fire chief thomas ahearn

escalated yesterday

When ahearn submitted

his formal resignation.

Asked for comment

The mayor said

he would take time

To consider ahearn's

early departure

But hoped discussion of issues

could now continue

"without disruptive elements

impeding progress."

The developers of a westside

high rise...

What's the matter?

I think low rider

doesn't feel good.

He doesn't want to eat.

Try this.

Oh, danny, no, no.

Huh...

What is it?

You usually eat more

than anyone in the house.

Is it your tummy?

Hey, maybe if you finish

your breakfast

He would finish his.

And you have...

Oh, seven minutes

To get your teeth brushed,

your clothes on

And out the door to school.

Mom, I really want

the pele video

for my birthday!

Okay, okay.

( phone ringing )

Hi, honey.

The phone rang for a while.

Thought maybe you had

already gone.

No, no.

I'm still here.

We miss you.

Dori, I've only been gone

since yesterday.

Dori?

Sam...

It's a good thing

that we miss you.

I miss you, too.

Listen, you know,

I'm kind of rushed.

I want to make

the first speaker

So, um...

Oh, yeah, of course.

You know, this is the third

conference that you've been to.

All right!

Okay. I...

Why is it

That every time we talk

it turns out this way?

We just called

to say good morning.

Dori, you've got to get back

into the swing of things.

Oh, sam, please...

You gave up a thriving business.

I mean, you and I used to climb

every weekend.

I... I miss our life.

Dori?

We have to talk about it

sometime.

I know, sam, I know.

Is that dad?

Danny wants to talk

to you, okay?

Make it fast,

all right?

We're already late.

Hey, dad, can I get

the pele soccer video

When you get back?

Okay, cool.

Bye.

Hey...

Don't forget your jacket.

Low rider, no, no, no.

You stay.

You stay. Good boy.

Daddy... I don't know

why you get so upset.

You know practically

every cent I make

I spend on rent.

And I don't exactly live

in the trump tower.

I know, I know.

I scrounge a little for food

and then I'm broke.

Yeah!

Well, you're a rich banker.

Well, daddy, you are!

Of course you worked for it.

I work hard, too.

I just don't make any money.

Wait, can you hang on a sec?

( blender grinding )

Sorry.

Yeah, I will pay you back

As soon as I'm a rich

and famous prima ballerina.

Yeah, I have it around here

somewhere.

I have my bank statement.

That's how I know I'm broke.
