mollie: we will have more on kcci.com. happening right now in ames iowa , state athletic director jamie pollard is addressing the media following this weekend's decision to fire head football coach paul rhoads. the news conference began just moments ago. let's take a listen. >> it involves tough decisions and being the athletics director in a lot of ways is not unlike being the head coach. the head coach has got to decide who the coordinator is, who starts at quarterback, who is on scholarship, who is not, who travels, who doesn't. all of those decisions disappoint somebody on the other side. this is a decision that i certainly wish i did not have to make. i wish we would not have been in this spot because i know it disappoints a lot people,
especially coach roads, his staff. coach roads, his staff and our players handled this extremely well. i would not have thought or expected anything different from paul and his staff. they are classy people, they are friends. paul is my neighbor and i hope to have a great relationship with him for a long time. sometimes you can want something more than it once you. -- it wants you. i wanted him to be our coach. he wanted to be our coach, but it just was not meant to be. a couple clarifications. paul was not let go because of what happened on saturday.
room, no one player, no one play costs the team a game. job. we made the decision to make the change as we simply did not win enough games and we were not trending in the right direction. why this week? there is never a good time to do was the best time for the players. they are all school this week. it gives them a chance to be able to deal with the challenges that come with the coaching change while they are still together, while they still have a chance to have their brotherhood and deal with it as a group rather than next week when they are not coming to practice, when they are trying to go to school. we felt it was just better to deal with it this week and give them the opportunity to deal
without it was a better time for the coaching staff. the assistant coaches would have all been taken off to go on recruiting. mollie: you've been watching isu athletic director jamie pollard addressing the recent firing of head football coach paul rhoads. that news conference is being streamed live on our website kcci.com. the same will be true later this afternoon at 1:30 when rhoads is expected to talk more about the decision. of course, you can look for complete coverage later today on the news at 5:00 and 6:00. we expect some thawing this the sun is out, the temperatures lead to some trouble tonight on the metro road. frank: that is right, that is always a concern. the temperatures right now very nice. 44 already in the metro, wind generally out of the west at less than 10 miles per hour. down to the south, lamoni in the

people are gearing up for the thanksgiving holiday. and with the terrorist attacks in paris still fresh on everyone's mind, law enforcement is taking extra steps to keep travelers safe. jamie yuccas reports from new york. jamie: 46 million will travel in the united states this week. and they will see extra officers, patrol dogs, and guns at virtually every airport, train station, and tourist destination in the country. homeland security secretary jeh johnson says his agency is ready for anything. >> i always hesitate to rank threats, but the potential copycat, the lone wolf actor is one that we are continually focused on. jamie: lines at the airports will be longer, and slower. the tsa says it will handle 25 million passengers this week, with enhanced screenings. >> we're all a little bit more aware of the increased security now and that people might be a little more nervous. at the same time, we're still traveling. jamie: if travelers are nervous, so are the airlines.
phony bomb threats re-directed three flights last week from the u.s. headed overseas, including a turkish airlines flight to istanbul sunday morning. in new york city sunday, police held a three-hour active shooter drill in the city's subway system. for the first time, their drill included an attacker in a suicide vest. >> we have now beefed up our resources that will be in a position to handle a significant number of events going on simultaneously or sequentially jamie: the department of . the department of homeland security says there are no credible threats anywhere in the united states. jamie yuccas, cbs news, new york. mollie: extra security is also in place for overseas flights heading into the united states. speaking of thanksgiving a , thanksgiving tradition took place this morning at terrace hill. >> zell weight and spike are free from the harm of carving

thanks to the brand from the west, northwest. if you look around on satellite radar, not much of any cloud cover. could see a few high clouds moving later today into tonight, but high pressure is dominating the weather across the midwest. here is your day planner. the mid 40's. make 30's. waking up tomorrow, 28 degrees. we will have to watch for some re-freeze tonight as we melt some of that snow. we have a stationary boundary wobbling across the state, playing around with our wind. eventually it will switch to more southeasterly. thanksgiving day looks like a pretty wet day, and on the backside, could be talking about some snow on friday.
let's track down futurecast. high clouds rolling through, otherwise we see the sunshine and warm temperatures. tuesday and wednesday, even warmer, back near 50 tomorrow and in the 50's by wednesday. could see a chance for rain late in the day on wednesday, but better chances for thanksgiving day, especially off to the east. friday, we will have to keep an eye on that, could be looking at some flurries by the morning hour on friday. 46 degrees in des moines today, more melting happening. tonight, 28 degrees. watch for some re-freeze on your way to work tomorrow as the temperatures will be cold enough to re-freeze some of that snow that has melted. wednesday, there's that chance for rain. 52, not bad.

mollie: welcome back, everyone. likes to think about but we are the time comes. care month. stephanie bishop is director of extra care services. an important month to increase you for coming. tell us about hospice and some of. >> i think the thing about recognize, it is not about death the end of life. that is what we try to focus on at hci care services. the biggest question we get, why didn't i get these services sooner?
you often cannot. if you start to see changes in your health, you need to talk to a hospice provider and talk to your physician about whether you qualify. mollie: is it up to the family? i always assumed it was the doctor. >> the doctor is certainly part of it, but we encourage people with their physician. one thing that has been apparent to me, it is just as difficult for physicians to talk about and of life as it is for any of us. if the patient could, and say, i want to have a conversation about hospice care services, that could open the door. mollie: what services are we talking about? >> nursing, psychosocial care services, spiritual services. it is the unique benefit that it
goes beyond the patient. physical symptom management to the patient, you also our meeting with the family to talk their loved one goes through physical changes, and give them the support they need. mollie: what does your agency offer? >> ours is the homecare side of it. there are several reasons you could have homecare. they are certifying you for that care. there's also continuing care at home where ever you call home. that does not necessarily have to be ordered by your physician. that is something a family member or you yourself can identify. mollie: this is separate from hospice, so we are talking about an illness or injury. >> it could be something that you would recover from or it could be something that you are
mollie: we have just scratched the service on something like this -- scratch the surface on something like this. how can we find out more about your service? >> hcicareservices.org. you can go to the national hospice and palliative care website. mollie: there is a number for you to call as well. thank it's called a rigged economy, and this is how it works. most new wealth flows to the top 1%. it's a system held in place by corrupt politics where wall street banks and billionaires buy elections. my campaign is powered by over a million small contributions, people like you who want to fight back. the truth is you can't change a corrupt system by taking its money.
jeb bush: we do not have to be the world's policeman. we have to be the world's leader. who's going to take care of the christians that are being eliminated in the middle east? who's going to take care of israel and support them - our greatest ally in the middle east? the united states has the capability of doing this, and it's in our economic and national security interest that we do it. i will be that kind of president and i hope you want that kind of president
