solution. >> you really need something where they can take care of you. it's about time. we started in 2005 trying to get this done. >> krystal: a long time waiting. that project held up by red tape in our nation's capital. u.s. senator dean heler who sits on the senate veterans committee praised the completion. >> kim: not going to get too breachy here but millennials they call them the greatest generation for good reason. lessons from our heroes. it takes us to this story which is tremendous. they were comrades in arms when one of the world war ii vets passed away. the other made a promise that he would visit his friend's grave and play taps. >> krystal: such an incredible story. after 14 years they kept that promise. and ricky mitchell has the story. >> reporter: tom says it's been more than 70 years since he's
following his friend eddie's death he said the promise he made eddie kept eating away at him. >> i felt a little guilty about not doing it but i knew wherever he is he would understand. but the more i thought about it i've been out here many times and i thought damage it -- damn i'm going to do it. he has spent the last five months practicing. >> eddie at me for hitting a couple of frogs. >> reporter: tom met eddie when they were in the army's 29th calvary during world war ii. >> we ended up going over in france. i had my bugle with me. i never got a chance -- i was never asked to use it and didn't want to. . >> reporter: they came back to the united states right before the war ended. >> preparing for the invasion of japan at that time. we would have been part of that
remained close with eddie's son, eddie junior. >> he would be happy. he would be really, really happy. he is a good pal. >> krystal: ricky mitchell reporting there. police are looking for the person who shot and killed a homeless man in our community while that person was sleeping. we had this as breaking news on the program yesterday morning. you see that our sky 3 was over the scene just outside of the boulevard. the man was 46 years old and he was found with a gunshot wound to his chest. police do not have a motive to share with us. they also don't have a lead in this case or any witnesses. so that's where you come in quite frankly. they're asking for anyone who can help solve this murder to please speak up. >> because that is no place for any human being who is a member of our community to have their life end. everyone in this community should take this crime personally as personally as the
investigating this case, and me personally as the captain of this area command. >> kim: we really do need your help on this one because right now local authorities don't even have the name of this person who lost their life. the coroner is working on it. if you know anything that can help crack this case please call crime stoppers. that hotline number on the screen. it is 702-385-5555. and always worth reminding you that when you dial that number you can remain anonymous. >> krystal: metro a car while chasing a suspect. this happened at las vegas boulevard and warm springs. police say one car did stop to avoid the officer but a second rear ended the first sending that car into the officer. that officer, not seriously injured. that is the good news. no word if the suspect is in custody. a local police looking to beef up the safety on those pedestrian bridges above the las vegas strip to crackdown on crimes. one case that made headlines was
kidnapped and raped near the nguyen. schneider holmes 15 at the time of the attack on that 28-year-old woman. he received 33 years to life in prison. matthew go hen then 22 was given a 40 year sentence. from shootings to stabbings to drug deals metro police see it all. as of now, on every shift officers from the convention center area command walk the strip including those pedestrian bridges. we caught up with one strip performer who says he play on the bridges but won't even take the gamble of staying there after dark. for metro more help is on the way. a class of 80 recruits graduating next month. they'll spend half a year realtime street training which means more uniformed officers in vegas including on the strip. >> kim: unlv our runnin' rebels kicked off the new season tonight at the thomas and mack.
the screen. they're coming off two exhibition game wins but this is the one that counts for real. they are six point favorites in most of our local sports books. they're taking on south alabama as hugh jackson would put it. they have a 14-19 overall record from last season. alabama is returning three of their starters which is great for them. unlv is only returning three players in total! so under the brand-new head coach marvin menzies who was with the program years ago and position, they are calling this a time of rebuilding. tip off is at 7:00 p.m. tonight. if you head down there, look out for our tom hawley who is an alum and is probably the biggest rebels fan i know. >> krystal: and you had the coach on your show. >> kim: yeah. he was here so many years ago he remembered when high husband dana was the weather guy. he was the kevin janison at the time back in the day. >> krystal: that shows he has a tie to this community. >> kim: he does. and he is very well respected.
great things out of him for good reason. >> krystal: i love to hear that. all the success to the rebels. this is so fun. strike a pose.

night with my two boys, donald j. trump and their son baron. the donald is driving. his son riding shotgun. like her husband melania is not addicted to twitter. but some of her older tweeted photos are fun. melania as bat woman for halloween wearing a cap suit teasing her husband... honey see you soon. and there's this oldie but goody, the clintons at the trumps wedding. okay maybe she's us. >> hi fans it's melania trump. >> reporter: not everyone has fans. >> i'm going to metropolitan gala. >> reporter: and not everyone goes galas in designer gowns. you can't say melania hasn't had plenty of training for all those state dinners she and president trump will be hosting. almost instantly after the
instagram. @real melania trump became @first lady melania trump. on thursday she chronicled her trip to washington writing... such an honor to visit the white house. little did she know this would end up being her home back when she tweeted this photo captioned "at home with my husband". don't worry melania there is a piano in the white house should you feel the urge to recline. jeanne moos, >> kim: maybe have some thoughts on that or something else from the program? we want to hear from you. all you have to do is take to social media, put our names in there and then sound off. we're on twitter. we're on facebook. you see how to get in touch with us. we'd love to hear from you whether it was that jeanne moos story or beyond. >> krystal: all right. and now we're going look at what's going on outside. we had a fabulous parade, kelly. you dialed up some beautiful weather for us. >> kelly: oh my goodness, amazing weather today.
so maybe head out of work a little bit early and go for a hike? it is a great day for it. look at all this beautiful blue sky. keep in mind it is a little cooler as you head out than what it is in the las vegas valley. looking at mid-70s up there today. temperatures. pahrump right now at 80. mount charleston 62. boulder city coming in at 75 degrees. in the las vegas valley mid and upper 70s right now. summerlin 75 degrees. paradise coming in at 76. and nellis you are at really beautiful afternoon. that ridge of high pressure is still in control but not for a whole lot longer. see this system working its way on to the coast? you see showers just off the coast of seattle into northern california. this system is going to continue to slide eastward. as it does we're going see a little bit of cloud cover in our area and a little bit of a dip in temperatures. they're still going to be above normal. high temperatures today? indian springs 75. primm 76.
down to 50. sandy valley 52 degrees. let's check out the recreational forecast. maybe you can't make it out to mount charleston or red rock today. tomorrow the high on mount charleston is 54 degrees. a little bit cooler. mostly sunny skies at red rock it's going to be 70. light and variable winds. if you want to head out on the water tomorrow, 78 degrees. maybe not the ideal weather for jumping in and going for a swim or water skiing. but maybe a nice day for fishing. nice light winds as well. degree temperatures for today. this is likely going to be the last chance we've got for 80 degree temperatures. mid-sfoirz the weekend. mostly sunny skies. still mild monday and tuesday but the winds pick up wednesday into thursday as the second system comes in. this one is stronger. it's going knock temperatures into the 60s. >> krystal: what are we doing? . >> kim: we're just doing the whole manikin challenge. now we have to fist pump. >> krystal: boom there it is.
other day. the cleveland cavaliers welcomeed to the white house the same day the president welcomed president-elect donald trump. i don't know how they stay so still. i was laughing so hard that my lip was probably quivering as i was trying to do this. >> krystal: we were trying to hold it. boy did they nail it. look at lebron and first lady michelle obama. they really look like manikins. they nailed it. i wonder how long they had to practice that to get it >> kim: it's so well done. this is where you come in. we want to see your manikin challenge. a moment ago we shared all of our different social media pages. please perfect it then share it with us. first let's check in with tom hawley. >> tom: thanks to everyone who took part in tom's trivia challenge. the answer to the question what was the first hotel howard hughes purchased here was the desert inn which is where the nguyen sits today. -- the wynn sits today.
