12:11 pm
massive recall business. continental automotive system is recalling 5 million vehicles including those made by honda and fiat chrysler. the german-based company says moisture can build up inside the air bag control computers and that could prevent the air bags from inflating in crashes. also, the i.r.s. is trying to get its electronic tax-filing system back up and running today. a computer problem shut down several tax processing systems including the e-file system. now the agency has stopped accepting e-filed tax returns. the outage could also affect tax refunds. but, the agency says it does not expect major disruptions here. >> laura: so a lot has changed 1967. the average cost of gas was just 33 cents a gallon. median price of a new single-family home was a little less than $23,000. that's versus about $283,000 today.

12:13 pm
today, of course, a lot cooler. we are socked in with cloud snow out there. you can see from the east side of cleveland out toward painsville and to the south down around geauga county, chesterland over into chardon and into ashtabula county, as well, we have a little snow there. this is pretty light stuff. it may briefly reduce visibility, briefly. we aren't looking at heavy widespread snow for today. really light this afternoon and tonight. temperatures in the 30s, you know, yesterday it was 30 warmer in cleveland. even at this time it was like 25-plus degrees warmer. 33 in cleveland right now. 35 akron. oh, 29 in mansfield. you know that's not really unusual for this time of the year. in fact, our average high is only in the mid 30s. but -- when you think back to yesterday and how mild it's been throughout the whole winter really this might come as a shock to the system.
12:14 pm
forecast for the rest of the day. cloudy skies, little breezy as well. pretty much going to stay where we are right now. no sun out there to warm us up like yesterday oh, that sun, it was so nice. we have all been just remeniscent about it all day long. but we will be overcast today and into tonight. cloudy skies, as well. few snow showers possible tonight. maim before 2:00 in the morning. so, any accumulation here, by the time it's all said and done this afternoon through tonight, looking at an inch or less. i think those of you who see an inch of snowfall or even close to an inch, mainly out in the snow belt, most of us again just a trace. nothing more than that. tomorrow, major improvements here. we will see some sunshine tomorrow, get a little vitamin d. as we round out the workweek. upper 30s on your friday. and the weekend, well, it's not looking too bad. look at this. low 40s. now -- saturday night we do have a slight chance for a few snow showers. but -- not everybody's going to
12:15 pm
we don't think this is going to be particularly widespread no major accumulations here either . but next week, well, guys, we have been hinting about this since early in the week that we would potentially have some wintry weather in the new workweek and that does look like it is still going to be the case. notice we have three alert days there. rain to snow monday which could potentially impact both commutes. so, we will be watching monday really closely. >> laura: you were talking like it could be like a lot possibly. >> samantha: well not a ton of snow, but, maybe more than we have seen so far this season. >> laura: which is not hard. >> samantha: it's our best chance. right. exactly. >> "q": ok. we'll have to deal with it. nothing i can do. >> laura: i'm waiting for you guys to get a snow storm. we have to aclimate them. >> samantha: we don't want to inconvenience folks. but some people want it play in that.
12:16 pm
just saying. >> "q": meat consumption, believe it or not, is down in the u.s. right now and that has a lot of people, you know, thinking about why eat a burger, why not. question. right? but after a generation of bad hockey-puck type stuff that you are seeing on veggie burgers, they are having a bit of a moment. correspondent jamie ukis looks at the trend that even some carnivores are craving. >> reporter: a veggie burger is no longer a bland gray patty masquerading as meat. that is really good. >> the text cure is very important. >> chef chloe opened by chloe last year in new york city. everything on the menu is vegan. >> i think there's still a lot of work to be done in terms of making them fun and accessible and every day. that's part of our mission. >> reporter: customers are embracing the veggie trend. in three years, vegetarian menus are up 66%.
12:17 pm
clearly won over this new york neighborhood. it opens at 11:00 and within minutes it's packed. it started at high-end restaurants catering to foodies. but it's now expanding to fast food. even white castle and wendy's have veggie burgers on their menus. >> people are definitely more mindful to it and open to it now. >> reporter: more than 35% of americans say they eat vegetarian meals at least once a week and more than 60% of americans actually like to eat their vegetables when going out. food trend expert michael whiteman says it's not just veggie burgers that have come a long way, but people's appetite for them. >> they were not likeable for a generation or two. i mean they were awful things. now you are eating it as a matter of pleasure because it's a different product. it doesn't taste as if it were run over by a bus. >> vegan nicholas and selmo agrees true success is all about the test. experience. you have the good bread and the good pickles and onions with an order of fries. >> reporter: an alternative now
12:18 pm
never expected. >> laura: we were just talking about. you pass off on veggie burgers -- >> "q": my kids are too young to actually like watch the news and turn on the tv, but yeah, i give them veggie burgers all the time. >> laura: that's right. we just outed you. there's still more to come on cleveland 19 news at noon. >> "q": yeah, including this half pint romantic. see what he did at the hospital
12:19 pm
>> "q": a five-year-old california boy is pretty darn brave. >> laura: yeah. not only is he fighting leukemia, which is serious stuff, he's asking his true love to marry him. gideon robinson asked his nurse, sarah richardson, for her hand in marriage. naturally, she graciously accepted. look at that. he got the idea when he heard another nurse joke that sarah was single and looking. richardson who he affection atly calls tall sarah was the first nurse to take care of him. >> "q": super sweet. good job, buddy. listen, thanks for joining us this noon. the young and the restless is up next. >> laura: join us at 4:00. " taxation without representation." it' s the phrase that created our
12:20 pm
our forefathers revolted against paying taxes to a government with which they had no vote. now 240 years later, it' s time to revolt against the mayor' s idea to raise cleveland' s municipal income tax from two percent to 2.5 percent. twenty-five percent more dollars out of the wages of people working in cleveland. according to the mayor' s office, about 87% of the tax money paid comes from suburbanities who don' t even get to vote on it. it doesn' t get any more un-american than that. the mayor makes some reasonable arguments about why the city needs the money. $18 million in lost property tax. more than $111 million lost from state tax cuts since 2010. $11 million to implement the d.o.j. decree to improve our police department. but the mayor has plenty of responsibility for these budget problems. the people who let the police department get out of control both received promotions and
12:21 pm
salaries. our chief investigator carl monday has documented waste in trash collection, police and city council lunches and dinners. and the biggest problem, new city worker contracts with numerous city unions that pay almost $43 million more in retro-pay and benefits from 2013 through 2016. who negotiated these deals? increasing the city' s income tax is short-sighted. how long will the city' s current renaissance last if we make businesses and their employees pay a premium to be in cleveland? it' s unfair and counter-productive. if the mayor wants to fight for our fair share of state money, we' re on board. ohio lets us vote. but we would vote no on the city income tax increase. that is, if we had a vote. call the mayor' s office at 216-664-3990 and let him know what you think. i'
