Anthony Pura anchors WEAR's 3 In the Morning on the Weekends. During the week, he is out in the Northwest Florida communities covering news as it breaks and reporting on stories that matter to you.

Anthony may be a familiar face to Channel 3 viewers. He first joined the news team in June of 2011 as a General Assignment Reporter, after spending two years reporting in the Lincoln, Nebraska market. Anthony grew up in Kerman, a small town in California's Central Valley. He headed back West in 2013, and spent nearly a year as a reporter at the ABC station in Fresno. But he rejoined the WEAR team in April 2014 and is thrilled to be back in the Gulf Coast.

"Pensacola is like a second home to me," Anthony said. " I truly missed the beach and the people while I was gone."

Anthony went to UCLA and graduated with a bachelor's degree in mass communications and political science. He also has a masters degree in broadcast journalism from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.

In his free time, Anthony enjoys running, reading and watching sports. Even though he is on the other side of the country, he is still a loyal San Francisco 49ers fan. Anthony also tries to experience everything the community has to offer, including all the annual events and festivals held at the beach and downtown.

Anthony would love to hear from you. Feel free to shoot him an email about any comments or issues that concern you. And make sure to send him a message on facebook and a tweet on twitter!" /> Anthony Pura anchors WEAR's 3 In the Morning on the Weekends.

September 30, 2013 — 4:15 p.m. ET - 09/30/13

Stocks closed out September on a down note. The Dow was down 128 points to 15129. The S&P 500 Index declined for the seventh time in eight sessions as it lost 10 points to 1681. The NASDAQ was also lower by 10 points to 3771. An ongoing budget stalemate in Washington weighed on the market. The likelihood of a government shutdown at midnight tonight intensified after the Senate rejected House legislation to fund the government and delay the health care law. Concerns that Congress may fail to raise the debt ceiling added to the cautious tone. As a result, a pair of positive manufacturing reports was overlooked. The Chicago purchasing managers' index showed business activity reached a four-month high in September and a separate gauge revealed Texas manufacturing expanded to its best level since February 2012. Overall, every sector finished lower. Consumer stocks paced the decline as Procter & Gamble fell 2.2% to $75.54 and Nike lost 1.3% to $72.66. Energy also lagged behind as Exxon Mobil declined 1.1% to $85.99. Despite recent losses, the major averages posted impressive monthly returns. The Dow gained 2.2% in September, the S&P 500 increased over 2.9% and the NASDAQ rallied 5.1%. NYSE Composite volume totaled over 3.2 billion shares. On the NYSE, decliners beat advancers by 3-2 on issues and 5-2 on volume. The NASDAQ was 6-5 negative on issues and 3-2 negative on volume. In fixed-income, Treasuries were little changed. The 10-year note was up 3/32 to yield 2.61% and the 30-year bond was up 1/32 to yield 3.68%.
