6:05 am
into the morning of december 29th. we have some video from that period of time. i was actually here at the airport, saw that line stretching all the way from where it typically is in the baggage claim and looping around a few times. the wait times soared up into the two and a half hour mark. a lot of people ended up missing their flights. a lot of frustrated passengers. at one point it appeared only one tsa agent was working to check all of those people's id's and tickets as they passed through security. so here's what we're learning from the tsa. they initially blamed all of this on bad weather in the midwest as well as poor communication from the airlines. but two weeks later, yesterday we learned that they say that it was all their fault. despite their estimates of how many passengers there would be, they decided not to add any more staff overnight. in a statement here, the tsa said after further investigation the tsa determined that correct staffing protocols were not
6:06 am
airport on december 28th through the 29th resulting in an unusually long wait time. the agency added it will continue to employ the lessons learned that evening and early morning to local operations. so basically they've learned from what happened and they will try to make sure that it does not happen again, gary. i can tell you that before around christmas time and the period after december 28th and 29th the security wait times were not nearly as long as we saw during that overnight period. so hopefully this won't happen again. i know a lot of people that were in that line, many of whom had been coming to the airport for years and years, had never seen a security line that long. >> it took a while for tsa to fess up. we kind of knew what was going on even before today. all right. thank you very much, noel. it is six minutes after six right now. a sex assault suspect was caught on surveillance camera near the

really struggled on wednesday as the major indexes fell back into correction territory. there was an expectation. chipolte. they say they are confident steps they are taking to tighten up their food safety will prevent outbreaks of food poisoning in the future and the company's stock was up 5%. shares are down more than 30% since the first case of e.coli reported back in october. chipolte is starting a big marketing push next month to move back customers. look for stepped up ads and a direct outreach to their loyal fans. last week chipolte said sales of stores open at least a year fell some 30% in the month of december. all right. thank you much. so there was an unlikely police
6:17 am
6:27 right now. an alabama police officer accused of partially paralyzing a grandfather is off the hook in a civil suit this morning. a federal judge tossed out the civil lawsuit against officer eric parker citing lack of reasonable doubt. parker is accused of slamming a 58-year-old man to the ground during an arrest. parker said the man looked suspicious. the man apparently didn't understand english and was unarmed. parker's previous two trials ended in hung juries. 6:21. tonight the republican presidential candidates will face off in yet another debate and this time it's gonna be held
6:18 am
it will be broadcast on fox business network. the debate expected to focus on economic, democratic president, and international policy issues. seven candidates will take part. donald trump, ted cruz, marco rubio, dr. ben carson, chris christie, jeb bush, and john kasich. meanwhile, the democrats will host their fourth debate in the campaign season on sunday night. that one will be held in charleston, south carolina. that race is heating up, too. this might be a good debate. this will be the democrats' last debate before 2016 primary voting begins with the iowa caucuses on february 1. you can watch that debate here on channel 9 sunday at 7 p.m. this morning lawmakers in maine will debate whether to impeach governor paul paige. paige is accused of abusing his power by using influence to pressure a school operator into taking back a job offer from democratic house speaker mark eaves. it will eventually go to the
6:19 am
paige made waves last week when he accused drug dealers from to peddle drugs and impression white woman. a mayor knows he is not above the law this morning. portsmouth layer kenny wright tried to -- mayor kenny wright tried to outrun police. it was over an expired vehicle inspection. >> it was really weird. a portsmouth deputy said that when he realized the car belonged to the mayor, he planned on just, you know, giving him a slap on the wrist, you know. just writing him a warning. but then wright took off and that led to a police chase. they caught him and now he's facing charges. >> that is bizarre. >> not sure what's going on there. hey, will the nwa biopic get some love from the academy? more on the oscar nomination announcements after the break. first a check on the weather and traffic. >> plenty of wind in the front range.

6:21 am
off in the distance. speeds are doing okay. 40s and 50s. sunrise today at 7:19. so your sun glare factor is a 9. marty says very little cloud cover.
6:22 am
and the oscar nominations are, well, we won't know for a few more minutes. >> we won't. >> they are getting ready to announcing them though. we have a live look at hollywood just before the academy awards nominations are revealed. it will be on this set. some of the top films that could be named are "the revenant," "the martian." another big contender is "straight out of compton." the nwa biopic. and of course the "star wars"

6:27 am
commute. we don't warm up dramatically though because we are gonna see the wind shift and come out of the northwest a little bit later in the day, and that's gonna hold temperatures in the mid-to-upper 40s and then we start sliding down later this afternoon. in fact, with the temperature cool-off and the winds later this afternoon, it's really not gonna be all that comfortable around here. we will be talking about snow in our friday forecast. and of course broncos-steelers. first a lot of folks have to get off to work. amelia has the latest on how to do that. good morning. yes, we do. we are checking out the city across 70, 25, 225. quiet all things considered. now that we have hit the 6:00 mark we are pushing into standard and typical delays. let's focus in on the thornton and northglenn drive. if you are about to jump on 25

6:29 am
they think they were trying to mimic the deadly paris attacks. well, the economy, affordable housing, even wine in grocery stores, they are all up for discussions in the governor's state of the state address today. but he's going to be up against a divided colorado legislature. so it could be tough getting anything done. he is trying to take on even the taxpayer bill of rights. 9news reporter tarhonda thomas with a preview. the governor has a big goal today? >> reporter: he definitely has a goal, and that is to reach all coloradans. we have with us someone who knows very well the agenda and what the governor is trying to accomplish this year. this is lieutenant governor joe garcia. good morning. >> good morning. >> reporter: congratulations on session. what are you thinking about as your goals for this year? >> my goals have always been to make sure that we have world-class educational opportunities for all coloradans the economic status, whatever their
6:30 am
people to be able to participate in our economy. >> reporter: governor saying that's something he is going to talk about. paying for college. another thing people are thinking about, the taxpayer bill of rights. the governor wanted to make amendments. republicans saying they oppose it. where do you see that going? >> we want to address the hospital provider fee through a technical fix that will free up hundreds of millions of dollars without which we will see dramatic cuts at a time our economy is booming. >> reporter: we are also talking about jobs with that though comes the need for affordable housing. how does the governor plan to address that this session? >> in partnership with local communities, with business, with non-profits. certainly that's a downside of our economic expansion, is housing prices are going up. >> reporter: when we talk about things like that people can relate to, one of the things the governor addressed yesterday in a preview was thoughts about the passing of possibly having grocery stores carry beer and wine. that's something that's very relatable of an issue.
6:31 am
>> it's something we're all -- all coloradans have an opinion. the really big issue is around the budget fix. we want to make sure that we're freeing uple dollars to allow us to cover the cost for programs that coloradans need. >> reporter: how hard do you think that will be? >> government is very good at bringing people together. he is going to be looking for common ground and common sense solutions. >> reporter: lieutenant governor joe garcia, appreciate your time. thank you very much. governor john hickenlooper will be speaking at 11:00. we will carry that live on channel 20. can you believe it, america? a world record jackpot. >> and the winning numbers are 8, 27, 34, 4, and 19 with the powerball number of 10. did you pick any of the lucky numbers? this morning millions of people are checking and double checking their powerball tickets. so far we know there were at least three big winners.
6:32 am
winning powerball ticket was sold in california. this is video from the 7-eleven in chino hill where the winning ticket was sold. someone in florida also has a winning ticket, and we know of the location in tennessee where another winning powerball ticket was told. it's in tipton county north of memphis. all right. we have some information about an apartment complex fire in colorado springs. 24 people are out of their homes today after the overnight fire at the treehouse apartments. that's on the city's southeast side. firefighters had to place ladders against the building in order to get to -- try to get to people and get them out. it's near a south academy boulevard and east fountain. it took crews more than two hours to put out the flames. one dog, we're told, was killed. several other pets are missing, but we do believe that everything else got out. the second student accused of plotting against her classmates at mountain vista high school in highlands ranch will be in court today. we're expecting formal charges and we expect to find out if
6:33 am
teenager will be charged as an adult. we have not named her or shown her picture because no formal charges have been filed. prosecutors were waiting for a psychiatric evaluation. her classmate, 16-year-old sienna johnson, is facing charges as an adult. she is accused of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder. there were some -- they were some of the longest lines we have ever seen at dia. three days after christmas security wait times peaked at about two and a half hours. 9wants to know investigated and finally got a response from the tsa about why this happened. 9news reporter noel brennan is live at dia this morning. noel, tsa admits it's at fault for this? >> reporter: exactly. basically, they say that they didn't add the staff members that they should have and in that overnight period between december 28th and 29th. you see behind me though security wait times not too bad this morning. the line is filling up. this is nothing in comparison, of course, to what you might remember seeing just a couple weeks ago.
6:34 am
way back to backage claim, even looped around a few times before coming back to where the line typically ends. a lot of people ended up waiting hours. some close to two and a half hours. i was out here that morning and some of those people ended up missing their flights. a lot of these people who have been coming to the airport for years say that those were the longest lines they have ever seen. so despite the tsa's estimates of how many passengers were gonna be there, the agency overnight. at one point there was only a single tsa agent that was checking all those passengers. yesterday, two weeks later, we got a response from the tsa and they released a statement. they say, in, after further investigation tsa determined that correct staffing protocols were not followed at denver international airport overnight on december 28th through 29th resulting in unusually long wait times.
6:35 am
continue to employ the lessons learned to local on occasions. basically, they have learned from that mistake and they will try to make sure that it does not happen again. i know a lot of people were blaming dia. a lot of people were concerned about the airlines being at fault. but the tsa guys now coming out and saying, hey, we should have added staff members that night. they sent the night shift home and they did have an option of asking some of those staff members to stay and to work overtime, but simply that did not happen that day. >> that was a frustrating day for so many passengers. thank you. it is 641 is right now. the stars are aligned so some of the oscar nominations are in. it's always kind of hard to time this stuff. we have a live look in hollywood as the announcements are being
6:36 am
we should hear best film, actor, actress very soon. directors are presenting award. documentary feature, documentary short, costume design, "mad max," "the martian," "the revenant," "star wars," "force awakens" were all nominated for sound editing. and boy and the world, inside out, "shawn the sheep," and the marine were there as nominated for best animated pictures. we have the stream up on our website and on or 9news app. if you want to watch it live, you can tune into that. we will get to the big ones in a little bit. >> they split up the nominations. 11 and 11. so they could take a commercial break. >> oh, all right. pause for the cause. let's look at money news. wall street trying to claw back from weapons' sell-off which
6:37 am
what has been a dismal start to this trading year. the drop-off came after a bounce in oil prices. a late day sell-off pushing the dow and nasdaq and s&p down into correction territory. investors worried about earnings, too. jpmorgan kicks off things in reports today. they are concerned about oil prices and the global economy. three boulder apartment complexes are about to undergo a multi-million dollar renovation and they are getting some financial help from the city of boulder and google. in fact, the money they combined with a couple of private equity firms will total $63 million. our partners the at the business journal say that in total the renovation will result in 238 6:43. we talked about firefighters having a greater chance of developing several types of cancer. the cars generals and the smoke and soot they are around every
6:38 am
cancers in first responders such as testicular cancer, prostate cancer, multiple mileioma among others. it's important to track those calls in case a firefighter is diagnosed with cancer and needs to file for workers' compensation. but doing that has been difficult for a lot of fire departments until now. south adams county fire department has been using a new web-based program for almost a year now called the exposure tracker. they are the only department in the state to use it so far. it helps track and log all the calls every firefighter goes on in detail from the length of the call to the color of the smoke, the type of environment and so on. it's really personal for this fire department. right now they have six firefighters in their department of 80 people that have cancer, including their chief. so it was a no-brainer for them to adopt this new technology. >> we have all, you know, over this cancer thing, you know, shed tears and shake our heads. but to have this technology, i
6:39 am
>> that's the chief there. he was diagnosed with kidney cancer. he is in remission now, which is great. the cost is less than $5 per firefighter per year. the safety officer enters the firefighter after every call. firefighter. they hope other departments now as well. 68-mile-per-hour winds at the top of berthoud pass. a webcam from cdot. can you see the snow blowing across the road up there. we are gonna have 40 to 55-mile-per-hour gusts in the mountains and foothills, staying through the afternoon. we start to get a northwesterly wind around here this afternoon and that's gonna bring some colder air in. we go into the 40s, mid-to-upper 40s, and then start dropping off this afternoon as that northwest wind begins to take hold. we also have strong winds in wyoming. high-wind warning out for cheyenne, wheat land and
6:40 am
in the gunnison river valley we have a flash flood watch through tomorrow afternoon. why? a big ice jam. they could see river levels go up 5 to 8 feet, guys. that could flood some folks who are living right along the river. >> a big deal. >> yeah, that sounds like a lot of water. 6:45. a warning this morning for anyone looking to buy broncos tickets.
6:41 am
