department says the operation posed a big threat to the neighborhood and he believes the threat is not over. furlong: "stanton arms apartments which is where this occured. there's a lot of families and children. so they really were creating a cancer in the middle of families." this is the third drug there are likely more drug rings operating in the same neighborhood. he says the drugs are smuggled up from mexico, sold here in our area, then the money is sent back to mexico. if you see any suspicious activity don't hesitate to call the sheriff's office or secret witness. a new community panel is being created to oversee the washoe county school district's spending on construction and repair. the school board unanimously authorized the "capital funding protection committee". the district is asking voters to approve a 781-million dollar tax increase in november. there are two options for the possible ballot question. one-- would involve raising just the sales

the city of ferguson is facing a new challenge after the federal government announced it is suing the city. the justice department is trying to force ferguson to overhaul its troubled police department. after the fatal shooting death of michael brown... an investigation found a pattern of problems with excessive force and racial discrimination in the
police department. abc's bazi kanani has the latest. script: a new battle in ferguson, missouri. the justice department is
violating its residents' civil rights. "the ferguson police dept's. violations were expansive and deliberate, stopping people without reasonable suspicion, arresting them without cause, and using unreasonable force. these violations were
not only egregious they were routine. they were driven at least in part by racial bias." the lawsuit comes after a surprise move this week by the city council... voting to push back against the settlement the city had reached with the justice department after months of negotiations. you know the things that we asked for are i think very reasonable. city leaders want to amend the agreement which they say the city can't afford to implement. but attorney general loretta lynch isn't buying that argument. "the department of justice and
came to an agreement that was both fair and cost-effective lynch says city leaders leave her no other choice-- forcing litigation to protect the rights of residents the justice department says are treated unfairly by police and a profit-driven court system. they have waited decades for justice. they should not be forced to wait any longer. ==bazi on cam tag== this case now goes to trial... unless the city and the justice department are able to settle first. attorney general lynch did not indicate much hope for that.

he is happy with the presient's support in funding but it takes a comprehensive approach to deal with the countries drug problem, which he says is just what his bill would do. take vo: it's called cara- the comprehensive addiction and recovery act. first the bill would focus on drug prevention. portman says 4 out of 5 people that are addicted to heroin started with prescription drugs. he wants to focus on education before addiction. second launches treatment programs, including making sure rural areas as well as big cities have access to life saving options like naloxone. portman says the final point is that it is comprehensive. he believes it takes the nation coming together on all of these steps to make a difference. take sot: portman: "just in the last week or so we've had two incidents in ohio, tragic auto accidents caused by heroin overdoses including someone overdosing with their kids in the back seat and crashing on one of our a problem that is affecting all of kellie tag: senator portman tells us this is something he's been working on for three years. he says it's rare in washington to have this kind of bipartisan the white house and democratic sponsors like rhode island senator whitehouse. he says it's like kind of support that can get this to the presidents desk- he says as soon as next month. reporting in washington i'm

back now with the touchscreen glove test
-- as temperatures fall into the single digits -- typing on your phone outside can be a challenge. regular gloves don't work on touchscreens -- but what about these specially designed ones -- wirecutter dot com put twelve pairs to the test, and abc's gio benitez is here now to reveal the exclusive results
typing in the cold can be a pain in more ways than one? natsot: "annoying i need to take off the gloves every time just to send a text" regular gloves don't work with touchscreens. here's why: the fabric blocks finger which activates your phone. nick guy of wirecutter.com, a website that advises on best gadgets, evaluated 12 pairs of touchscreen gloves to find out how well they work. sot gio: "looking at all of these, they don't have the tips we're used to seeing." sot nick guy: they actually sew in silver and copper thread / that conduct electricity and allow you to use your / touchscreen as if you weren't wearing gloves." to test for touchscreen ability, nick camped out in a temperature controlled brewery cooler like this one, keeping it consistently frosty - just above freezing, while he texted, used apps, and played games. now it's my turn with wirecutter's picks? sot gio: "all right, it's cold in here. 37 degrees!" first up: the moshi
sot nick: "these were our favorite gloves in our tests. we found that they were nice and warm but we were also able to type really well with the thumbs on them." sot gio: "how well can i type in a brewery cooler?" well no typos." next up: the north face thermoball etip gloves, for $50.00. nick sot: "the material is a little bit thicker not quit as flexible. but they're still pretty impressive for how warm they are." gio sot: "i feel like i can be in a blizzard. / i was able to type, not bad." nick says all the gloves lose conductivity over time - but sometimes too quickly. that's what wirecutter found with the pair of glider gloves winter style that he tried, which sell for $29.99. sot gio: "i can't get the w." sot nick guy: "we wore them for a few months and they were fine. but then when we went to do our final tests we found that the left hand glove had stopped working all together." /the fact is they can wear out but wearing out in one season
glider gloves told us "we've found that it's about 1% of all gloves that fail early. ..we do back up our product with a 90 day warranty and replace any gloves that have failed or are defective..." graphic nick's advice - get gloves with gripping material on the palm. see how well the phone stays in the glove? and get a tight fit. he says watch out for gloves with extra material or seams on the tip. that reduces touchscreen ability. tag info: dirt and grime also prevent the gloves from working well. so follow manufacturer's instructions when ititcomes to washing - but beware - washing also wears down the thread. wirecutter says most touchscreen gloves do lose two seasons. and now your kolo 8 hour-by-hour weather forecast with lindsey matherly. today: mostly sunny, with a high near 65. south wind around 5 mph. tonight: partly cloudy, with a low around 38. southwest wind around 5 mph. friday: mostly sunny, with a high near 66. southwest wind around 5 mph. friday night: partly cloudy, with a low around 38. west wind around 5 mph. saturday: mostly sunny, with a high near 61. northwest wind around 5 mph. saturday night: partly cloudy, with a low around 36. sunday: mostly sunny, with a high near 62.
