grellner did not give a reason for dropping the complaint, just saying she no longer wants to be involved in the proceedings. after friday's announcement, henry submitted his retirement from the patrol. ellingson drowned at the lake of the ozarks in may 2014 while in custody of a patrol trooper. todd: right now, the des moines water works says a boil advisory will remain in effect until at least sunday for hundreds of residents on the eastside. the break at northeast 46th and hubbell was fixed on friday. water samples will be taken again this weekend. the test results are expected to come back on sunday. laura: a gray and fairly gloomy fall day out there today. kcci meteorologist jason sydejko is in now with your first look at your forecast. jason: yes, it is looking like we will finally break these clouds up. if you are out this evening, plan on a decent one.spine-chillingly beautiful -- down to 47 by 9 p.m.
we have that rain early on, but that showed off to the east. clouds are beginning to clear behind that. nobody thought there would be that much rain, about a quarter or half of an inch. pc southeastern portions of the state took the brunt of that -- you see southeastern portions of the state took the brunt of that. i have sunshine back in the forecast. we will talk about why and how long it sticks around, coming up in the forecast. laura: breaking news right now -- isis is claiming responsibility for a deadly airliner crash in the egyptian dessert. 224 people killed on a russia metrojet. at this hour, there is no indication of what brought the plane down. mary moloney reports russia denies the claims by isis. mary: the sight many russian families are dreading to see. egyptian first responders transferring bodies to a morgue in cairo, after a russian passenger plane crashed early saturday in the sinai peninsula.

asteroid passes earth. jeb bush was a very strong governor, probably the strongest governor in the history of the state of florida. he was a young guy and i think there were some folks in the legislature that thought they might be able to run over him. that didn't happen. one tax cut wasn't enough- he had to do more. it wasn't enough to have 15,000 kids with school choice in florida, he wanted to have 100,000 kids. if he didn't like a project, it was going to be vetoed. it didn't matter if you were a republican. it didn't matter if you were his best friend. he said: 'this is where we're going, this is how we're going to reform state government...' every politician comes in talking about making change, and generally there's not much change. but governor bush made a lot of changes.
he got the nickname veto corleone. if he saw something in the budget that he thought violated his conservative principles, you could guarantee it was gonna get whacked. he vetoed a bunch of my stuff and i was the senate president. the message to washington, d.c., is 'get ready...' because there will be change. right to rise usa is responsiblefor the content of this message. announcer: this is iowa's news leader. this is kcci 8 news at 6:00 with todd magel, laura terrell, meteorologist jason sydejko, and sports with scott reister. laura: today, the downtown
farmers' market opened for the last time this year. organizers asked people to dress up in costume to celebrate. some vendors sported produce like they were selling, as well as handing out candy. if you didn't make it out, don't worry. there will be two winter farmers' markets. the first is november 20-21. then in december, on the 18th and 19th, at the kaleidoscope mall and capitol square. well all across central iowa, , ghosts and goblins will go door to door tonight for candy and treats. todd: children will be trick-or-treating in adel, creston, dallas center, fort dodge, grimes, knoxville, marshalltown, newton, pella, slater, and van meter, just to name a few. we have a complete list of halloween activities on our kcci app and on kcci.com. laura: take a look at this. officer brandon stoneburner of the altoona police department was out handing out candy on beggars' night in the venbury trail area, just off of 8th street southwest. he had the kids telling him jokes. and he was laughing and having a blast. kcci viewer lindsey herman sent
in these photos. she says, quote, "this cop deserved some recognition on his great job patrolling." todd: plenty of trick-or-treaters out last night, sharing their pictures with us on social media today. you can always upload your pictures to the u-local page on our website, kcci.com. check this out. we also have a slideshow of halloween pictures up on our website right now. you can check that out, as well. lots of cute kids. from mr. potato head to kcci's steffani nolte's little gum ball machine. how about that? very cute. look at this big kid version, and entire vending machine. laura: very impressive. and her saw something impressive today. earth saw a special trick-or-treat today -- an asteroid that nasa says resembles a skull. it was discovered only a few days ago. the asteroid is believed to be about 2000 feet wide and flew closer to earth than any other asteroid since 2006. it came within 300,000 miles of
earth at 78,000 miles per hour. pretty cool. jason: that is awesome. that is my costume coming in. it will land of my head. it is pretty scary, i am hoping no one will be watching. a nice night, if you're headed out going trick-or-treating, you have glorious weather. temperatures right now in the upper 40's to low 50. our average high is sitting in the 50's, so a very mild night is ahead of us. the rain and clouds are clearing out. rain cleared out early on from you see skies clearing. 51 degrees, absolutely beautiful outside. get out while the getting is good. it will not get any worse, in fact, it will get a lot better. cooling off to 40 degrees by 7:00 in the morning. look at the mountain of warmth -- up to 71 by tomorrow. we keep the clear skies around,
week, they're looking absolutely perfect for outdoor plans. the area of low pressure pushes to the east, and into tomorrow, it will take all of the ghosts along with it. it will bring sunshine for a few days. plan on really nice start and midpoint of the week. the futurecast does not bring much in. we have a warm front that will be driving in, that will help keep those temperatures up over the next few days here. as we ride back to the mid-70's, we are talking november -- highs in the 70's? and sunshine along with it. we will be talking about beautiful conditions tomorrow, a few clouds of a chance to roll in. other than that, plan on a day filled with sunshine. if that is not enough, we keep the clear skies tomorrow evening and into monday, too. up, so i know we had some cool mornings.
42 tonight, we keep the breezes out of the west and southwest and 5-10 miles per hour. we drive then some more, a lot of warmth tomorrow. we get sunshine and breezy at times, so take that into account. other than that, a few clouds is all we muster up. upper 60's to low 70's throughout the state, 73 and council bluffs. if you are hoping to get there, we will get there fairly soon -- a pair of 74's on both monday and tuesday with the sunshine. we are back into the low to mid 50's through the middle of the week. your next shot for rain or any cloud cover in on thursday evening. that will come through on friday morning, too. that will have temperatures back in the low to mid 50's. if you want a taste of late summer conditions, that will be here the beginning of next week. after that, according pitchers are on the way. todd: that looks great.
thanks, jason. don't forget to turn back your clock before you go to bed tonight. we fall back one hour starting at 2 a.m. that means you get an extra hour of sleep, which could come in handy after a night of trick-or-treating or what else you are going to do tonight. public safety officials say it's also a good time to put fresh batteries in smoke alarms. if you think we can grow our economy while ignoring climate change, think again. america's most innovative companies are already moving to clean energy using existing technology to improve their bottom line.
leader, this is kcci 8 sports. scott: with a weak schedule and tons of momentum, iowa has a great shot at running the table and reaching the big 10 title game. here's a scary thought. get tripped up on halloween by maryland, and all those big dreams come crashing down. nightmares for sure, a lot of love for zach johnson showing off the hardware. here they,, going with captain america. it should have been superman. the hawkeyes were above human with their efforts. lashawn daniels, back from that sprained ankle. watch out, here come the hawkeyes. look at this -- c.j. beathard to george kittle. beathard hobbled by the groin injury. wadley, 69 yards, 1 touchdown. the work was spread out with no
he had his own injury. makes it 21-0 at half. three running backs all had a touchdown in the first half. maryland had cut it to 14. that man was not happy. desmond king would have none of it. this guy is unreal. seventh of year, tied for the ncaa lead. this one comes with style points 88 yards. , they go up 31-7. they held maryland to 241 total yards, just 74 passing yards. 31-15 the final. the hawkeyes look forward to the remaining schedule where the opponents have a 3-13 record. more from tony seeman tonight. nebraska at purdue. purdue's david blau, 56 yard touchdown. purdue led 21-9 at the half. and it got worse.
touchdowns. nebraska rallied, but still lost 55-45. nebraska is 3-6. 6 losses before november for the first time in program history. that dates back 125 years. pretty bad. new quarterback, new play-caller. same problem. the cyclones have a tough big 12 opponent to beat against texas tonight. the cyclones will give ankeny grad joel lanning his first career start at quarterback. mark mangino is no longer the offensive coordinator. he was fired monday. now todd sturdy is calling the plays. so far, all working for the cyclones. first-quarter action from jack trice stadium, 7-0 lead over the texas longhorns. we will have complete coverage of this game coming up tonight at 10:00. other games in the big 12? kansas state was iowa state's loan big win. oklahoma will host iowa on saturday.
7-0-53, that will rival some basketball scores later. how about the uni panthers? first possession, jordan cheatem is off and running. it was all panthers after that. bailey passed for 231, ran for 44, and 1 touchdown. uni even their record at 4-4. they take down south dakota 20-7. a cakewalk for the seniors. senior day for 4th-ranked grand view. their reward? facing a winless culver-stockton team. some games are close. some are like these. 55 yards for the score, it's 7-0. 21-0 after a quarter. and they just piled it on. no need to pay too close attention.
grandview 76-7 victors. william penn missed a p.a.t. that would have tied it. william penn lost 41-40 in overtime to benedictine. drake 35, morehead state 38 in ot. in the iowa conference, central beats simpson, 31-24. wartburg 55, buena vista 0. the royals may have jumped out to a 2-0 lead over the mets. but if you lose tonight, that will be ancient history. it was all mets friday night. they clubbed their way to a 9-3 win over k.c. noah began game 3 with a high pitch, he says it was a message uncomfortable. he did not mean to get that close to the face. escobar said he do not mess with someone's face. game 4 is once again in new
chance to tie the series. >> you know, they have been like that all year long. that kind of stuff, when that happens, they always find a way to get fired up and kind of take care of it themselves on the field. not by throwing a people or swinging a bat. scott: i have not played baseball in a long time. but having a 95 mile fastball coming at your head?
