11:14 pm
the woman says she's not mad.. and she's already planning her next dinner party. when you shell out big bucks for a major appliance or product... you're usually asked.... if you want "the extended warranty". one local couple says.... they regret their decision.... to do.... just that. tonight... contact 13...... with the - 4- things.... you need to know..... before buying a warranty. < bill: it's suppose to protect everything about it, and we can't get to first base. bill and cleo moore have a "master protection agreement" for their heating and air conditioning unit. but when their a/c went out last september, they were told the part needing to be replaced, wasn't covered. bill: well we had the master protection plan... it makes no sense, and i've been paying for years. they purchased their service contract through sears, and pay 417 dollars every year. cleo: so we're just giving you money every year for nothing? for a piece of paper? sears fixed the air conditioning. but bill and cleo were slapped with a 36 hundred dollar balance! and they're not happy about it. cleo: you willingly take my money every year, and make us
11:15 pm
how dare you. so how do you avoid your own extended warranty nightmare? number 1: look for special conditions, exclusions, and limitations. some contracts limit the amount they'll pay for repair work, or replacements. number 2: be sure you know who handles a claim. many times repairs are handled by a third party. and sometimes, you may be required to return the item to the store. number 3: look carefully at how long you're really covered. a contract offering 5 years of extended coverage, may only be providing 4. that's because they sometimes typical 1 year limited warranty. and number 4: learn about the "free look-up period." under certain circumstances, the warranty provider may be required to give you a full refund. 10 days to act. cleo: i'm fed up. there's no where else for us to go. as for bill and cleo, contact 13 reached out to sears about their case. the company simply states the:
11:16 pm
sears master protection agreement..." and they believe the charges are appropriate. but the question is, why wasn't it covered? bill: when sears intially came out and we signed up with the agreement, they checked everything. sears checked the unit up there. sears stopped responding to contact 13's questions. but here's what we know: according to sears' paperwork, bill and cleo's repair was needed because their "evaporator coil was leaking." well guess what... that's covered under the master protection agreement. see right here where it says: centralized a/c coil? according to a local a/c expert, that's the same thing as an evaporator coil. bill and cleo say they plan to fight the charges. cleo: i don't feel we owe it. it's wrong. bill: you are being totally unreasonable and unfair to us.> if you're having issues with an extended warranty... file a complaint.... with "the nevada division of insurance". in some cases... you can also turn.... to the state contractors board.
11:17 pm
don't forget..... contact 13 is here for you!! e-mail us.... at 13 investigates @ ktnv dot com.... and... we'll see to help. a new mexico high school has launched an investigation after seeing some video showing a security guard using profanity in a classroom. (nats) "her hair will be shining an bleep" butt to (nats) "daddy could you help pick me up some bleep from the castle superstore? i need the homewrecker bleep." the classroom was full of students who heard that explicit tirade.. which was caught on camera a few weeks ago. students say the security guard was actually filling-in as a substitute teacher for the day. the employee is on leave while the school investigates. now to a developing weather story out of iowa.. where high winds are causing big problems.. especially on the highways. one big gust flipped over a big rig near cedar rapids. there are also reports of several other big rigs being hour.. but luckily.. no reports of serious injuries. the winds have died off and high pressure with tons of sunshine is firmly in control.

i've watched as the house across the street has sat empty for over six years. i've watched good friends have their homes foreclosed on. people are still really suffering, and they're looking for somebody that is going to create bold change. wall street gave bad advice and bad loans over and over again, and nothing happened. people are so excited about bernie sanders because they know that he's not beholden to wall street. we need someone like bernie sanders that's going to fight for the middle class.

the winds have died off there are those who say we cannot defeat a corrupt political system and fix a rigged economy. but i believe we need to lift our vision above the obstacles in place and look to the american horizon. to a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one.
11:30 pm
where a good job is not a wish, but a reality. where women receive equal pay and a living wage is paid to all. an america where after a lifetime of labor, there is time for rest and grandchildren. a nation that defends our people and our values, but no longer carries so much of that burden alone. i know we can create that america if we listen to our conscience and our hearts and not to the pundits and the naysayers. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message,

for her "experience, leadership, tenacity," the las vegas sun endorses hillary clinton. just like planned parenthood action fund endorses clinton for her fortitude keeping government out of women's personal healthcare decisions. and the league of conservation voters action fund... for her bold plan to attack climate change. or the human rights campaign... because hillary believes only love should decide which two people can marry. not just a progressive. a progressive who gets results. i'm hillary clinton,
