box to go." - michele jahncke - owner, northside cafe/middle river brewing those happy customers walked out of the same screen door that slams shut every time a customer walks in today. celebrating 140 years on the square, current co-owner, michele jahncke, is steering the cafe in a new direction. 12:17:24 "we'll be brewing a bohemian-style pilsner, and a stout - specifically named george stout - for the monument's man. and also, a historic sarsaparilla that will be non- alcoholic." - michele jahncke - owner, northside cafe/middle river brewing they'll call it "middle river brewing company"... it'll open this summer, on the second floor of north-side cafe. 12:25:23 "i would say for the most part people are very excited and chomping at the bit wishing it was here sooner than later." - michele jahncke - owner, northside cafe/middle river brewing for loyal customers like connie bosier - this is the place to be. 12:38:09 "i am a regular, this is like my second home." - connie bosier - customer bosier comes here daily for a cup of coffee or some lunch...she's not big into the craft beer scene, but she's excited for the cafe's new adventure. 12:41:39 "i think it's always interesting that way to see how they bring in other people, and newer people, and keep

customer until the beers start brewing, jahncke's hoping to get some help from the community to keep the historic look of northside cafe intact. 12:28:00 "the goal is $15,000. we want to improve the face of the building, because the building - 140 years old - has seen a lot of wear." - michele jahncke - owner, northside cafe/middle river brewing and once middle river brewing joins northside cafe on the square, jahncke says her shop's 140-th year will be one to remember. 12:19:54 "we kind of want to bring that all together here - the past, the present, and the future. we've been open 140 years, we want to be open 140 more." - michele jahncke - owner, northside cafe/middle river brewing north-side cafe will host a celebration for its 140-th anniversary on march 5-th from 4 to 8 p-m. the cafe will offer free craft beeflights from other local breweries, and the owners say they may just have a few early versions of their own

9:32 pm
clear rubio was forced to switch campaign tactics because niceties were no longer working. johnson says "i think rubio can win in fla, the questrion is if he can keep up the attacks on trump and how successful trumps pushback on him." with 2,383 delegates needed to win the democratic nomination ---and 53 0n the line in the south carolina primary saturday --- hillarly clinton talked about the importance of each and every vote. clinton says "it is one of the most important elections we have had in a really long time." waldman says "despite several close democratic caucuses and primaries, hillary clinton is holding a big lead over bernie sanders in the delegate count ... leading him by more than 400. in washington, joel waldman, fox news." the gunman behind a deadly shooting spree in kansas yesterday had been served a "protection from abuse" order by a harvey county sheriff's deputy about 90

the problem isn't breaking into one phone. the problem is the precedent." delgaudio says: "no, i don't necessarily agree that apple made the right decision, ok?" while shareholders strongly debate the company's strategy, others have been equally vocal in their criticism of president obama's refusal to personally intervene in the fight. kasich says: "where's the president been? you sit down in a back room and you sit down with the parties and you get this worked out. you don't litigate this on the front page of the new york times, where everybody in the world is reading about their dirty laundry out here." mcfarland says: "a better leader would say to the american people, we're entering a whole new age now..i'm your president, and i'm going to guarantee not only the privacy of the american people, but the security of the american people." but instead of the president, fbi director james comey has become the face of the administration's push to get apple to comply... ten days ago, a federal judge ordered the company to help comey's f.b.i. unlock the phone... but in its response thursday, apple asked the court to vacate the order- saying it violated the company's first & fifth amendment rights. and while the court considers apple's request- other tech giants... including facebook, microsoft,
9:38 pm
and google say they plan to file briefs of support of apple's right to refuse... earnest says: "we're talking about a phone that was owned not by the terrorist, but by the local government. the terrorist is no longer living. and the need to extract as much information as possible to learn as much as we can about that incident is something that our law enforcement officials have concluded is a priority." apple is arguing that the government is essentially asking them to create a hacking program that would impact its own product. congress is going to weigh in on the matter by the way on tuesday as a house judiciary hearing gets underway that will involve not only director comey but also apple's general counsel. at the white house, kevin corke, fox news a virginia woman and her baby are alive today thanks to an old mattress. tornadoes causing chaos across the east coast this week... one mom in virginia says she is lucky to be alive -- crediting an old mattress - which she was supposed to take
