6:07 am
give to the travel company. we asked. the broncos have not told us. tickets for sale on secondary markets, they're pretty expensive right now. it's going to be like finding a needle in a hay stack. these are the original prices. they're $350 for the third level, but retail sites are cashing in with same seats in that section for $4,000. >> wow. 6:07 right now. when he issues his budget next month, president obama is expected to pitch some new proposals that will expand accounts. the white house says these ideas will provide more than 30 million people with access to time. a majority of that increase would come through legislation that would require employers that don't currently offer a retirement plan to automatically enroll their workers in an ira, an individual retirement account.

in a different wisconsin town last week, $70,000 of parmesan cheese was stolen in a similar way. so far police have not connected the two cases. a run-in with a homeless man turned into a life changing discovery for a woman in idaho. it turned out to be her father whom she had not seen in 20 years. she said everything changed when he handed her his food stamp card. >> he asked what the balance was. i saw the name. my heart dropped and i said what is your middle name. and he said, eugene. i hit my knees, and i said you're my biological father. >> isn't that incredible. >> the two say that they plan to keep each other in their lives. she says she plans to invite her father to live with her. >> that's just something. >> incredible story. >> she just happened to ask his name. if she had not done that, they

6:28 am
it's now affecting areas of our i-25 commute. you can see across i-25 southbound at 110, we're talking about the earlier eastbound i-70 stall on the approach to brighton boulevard. about 35 minutes. that suv was stuck in traffic. you've got about a 30-minute wait. southbound 25, lows up at 120 120th now, headed toward the mouse trap itself. if you're jumping onto 270, it's a pretty easy drive. we've now dropped to an average of 40 miles per hour. >> all right, amelia, thank you. it's going to be an especially tough day for students in parker. not only will they be attending a classmate's funeral, they're dealing with the second death of a friend. >> max gettier is the second

6:30 am
5:00 this morning to break into the home. police say the homeowner detained one suspect who was arrested when police got there. the second suspect ran off on foot. it is not known if that suspect has a weapon, and police are still searching for him. we'll keep you up to date as we get more information. today the woman accused of stabbing denver's fire chief is going to be in court. maureen rodriguez had been charged with attempted murder and first degree assault. she jumped into tate's suv and stabbed him in the leg and arm. luckily the fire chief was able to get away and get help. he was taken to denver health. work. investigators are trying to determine if this man committed a crime as well. they're also looking for a man who robbed that homeowner. defending himself under
6:31 am
he was attacked during a craig's list sale. two suspects showed up to look at model cars. they tied him up and the homeowner broke free and grabbed a gun himself. he confronted the men who tried to steal his car. he crashed a few houses down and later died at the hospital from a gunshot wound. a rancher is found dead inside his home and albert deputies are looking for his killer. the property's co-owner had been called, saying someone had been inside his home. this is a photo of who police are looking for. he lost contact with butler. the neighbor found butler dead. the sheriff's department released photo from surveillance video of the person of interest. they're asking for the public's help identifying this man. >> president obama plans to ban the use of solitary confinement
6:32 am
he announced the ban last night in the washington post. isolating prisoners can call long term psychological effects, particularly when used mentally ill. the policy will affect 10,000 prisoners. >> it's 6:30. the future of sports authority is in doubt. chain. in another report, bloomberg says sports authority is dealing with $643 million in death. on top of that. c nbc is reporting that the chain is on the verge of closing 250 stores. management is not commenting, but the sports authority has a lot of brand name recognition around here. they agreed to pay $6 million a year to have its name on the home of the denver broncos. they tried to cust costs and
6:33 am
things around. they've cut 2500 jobs since last fall. now workers at six customer service centers around the country are willing told their locations are going to either close or perhaps down size. shares of sprint are down 39% in just the past year. it is another snow day for dc. thousands of students, the city is still clearing two feet of blizzard. same situation in baltimore and philadelphia this morning. the number of victims victims from the storm in the eastern united states has now gone up significantly. yesterday it was 30. this morning it's 42 people. the weekend blizzard on the east coast produced an early front runner for internet video of the year. thrill seekers ignored a travel ban in new york city to have some fun in the snow storm. a you tube user loaded a video showing him and a pal
6:34 am
pulled by a car through times square. bill de blasio warned that people would be arrested. they only got warningsings after a police officer spotted them. on a cold video like this, there's nothing like getting into a nice warm car, right? but letting your car warm up if you're not in it is not a great idea, as we've been talking it's called puffing. and it is illegal. tarhonda thomas joins us live. police are catching puffers. there's a reason they're doing this. >> yeah because it leads to more theft. you could haven't come to us at a better time. this police officer just found someone who is puffing with the car. the car is in the driveway. this is in the area where they've seen a lot more cars get stolen. the car is running, and the keys are inside. you can leave your car running
6:35 am
systems, but if your keys are inside, it's considered puffings, and it's illegal. this officer is going to make contact with the homeowner. >> sometimes they issue warnings, sometimes citations, all to let people know that thieves are out and on cold days like this, they're looking for cars to steal. >> in just a few seconds, these car thieves who are patrolling your neighborhoods looking for easy targets can just climb in your car and drive away with it. >> it's such an easy target. they say a number of cars stole reason pretty much easy targets because the keys are either inside or the car is left running like this one. the police did a briefing in aurora. they say there are definitely patterns they see with these cars. they've seen a lot more stolen puffer cars. this is puffer week. you can see police departments across colorado participating in this, all in an effort to get people to realize they cannot leave their cars running.
6:36 am
these opportunities. and they're making it pretty easy when they to leave these cars running. we're going to follow police. what they decide to do and if they find any people who are stealing these cars. that was part of the briefing this morning. people who were stealing the cars. police have a lot of descriptions. as this homeowner makes contact with police, we want to give you that warning and a heads up. please don't leave your car running today. >> let's talk about this forecast. >> you know another thing about leaving your car idling, it's terrible for air quality. now this, metro area, awesome. i would call this a broncos sunrise, wouldn't you? >> we have okay air quality today, on big inversion days by tens of thousands of people who have their cars out idling, that really degrades quality for everyone. sunshine over much of the state. we start warming into the 20s
6:37 am
into the 40s around here. we'll have a few high clouds drift in later today. this morning. as we look again. right over the front range, generally clear conditions for us this morning. it will stay that way through the afternoon with 30s and low 40s up north. here. it will get much warmer toward the tail end of the week. >> thank you. you can probably come up with a lot of words to describe traffic on i-70 in the metro area. well, just say it is a tough drive, right? today you have a chance to find out what fiat has planned to fix one of the worst trouble spots. they plan to spend $1.2 billion to expand the highway between 125 and tower road. a town hall to go over the project is happening tonight at 7:00 in park hill at 7:00 p.m. tomorrow. they will probably be packed.
6:38 am
it is 6:42. a lot of people talking about peyton manning versus cam newton in super bowl 50, but perhaps the game's most matchup
6:39 am
>> ski reports in this morning. loveland and keystone, 5 at vail and beaver creek. three at steamboat moving into the central mountains. a little lighter snow. no new reports in aspen. five new at powder horn. they've had a big week this week. 17 at silverton is from yesterday. they have not updated today. 5% above average. everybody running at or above
6:40 am
we have three or four days of virtually no snow at all. we're going to set it will snow pack. moderate for most of the state, low in the cristos, but considerable for the northern san juans. >> well, marty, take a look at this shot. sky 9's you of i-25 and evans is just packed in. the southbound stretch running much heavier than usual. no crashes or stalls in your way. unusually heavy near colorado boulevard. as we take a live look at your cdot camera at arapaho, normal traffic in the dtc as well. you will see speeds dropping into the 40s on the approach to 225. i just tweeted out an incredible shot. southbound from i-25 to parker a long line of brake lights. gary? >> where is everybody going. >> 6:47 right now. technology is turning a baby
6:41 am
machine. designers have developed this self-propelling stroller. they call it the smart b. an electric engine makes going uphill a lot easier. it has an on-board bottle warmer, rocker, music. it has internal and external cameras. it has three different retractable canopies you can choose from. the starting price, about $3,000. well known airlines in denver, bumping up their super bowl flights. they want to meet the demands of denver fans. jetblue is adding flights. southwest is going to add three nonstop flights. it's the fastest growing market for that airline. southwest did not add any flights that serves serves the home market of the carolina panthers. they say there's probably not enough business to support that. it's 6:47. the broncos will join an elite club this two weeks.
6:42 am
their 8th super bowl. it's something only three other teams can claim they've done. the carolina panthers will be the 8th different team that the broncos have faced in the title game. already a ton of talk about the quarterback matchup and the age difference at that position. pink, 13 years and 48 days older than cam newton. newton has a good chance of snagging the mvp trophy. something peyton has done five years in his career. they were both number one draft picks overall when they joined the league in college. cam newton was taken overall number one in the 2011 draft. did you know number two that year, the undisputed mvp of the afc championship game, vaughan miller. then john fox was on his way out when the team drafted the auburn quarterback. he was on his way to denver when they were drafting texas a&m defender vaughan miller.
6:43 am
they square off, obvious, in santa clara. well, broncos fans may be united in orange, but the players are going to be playing in white. that revelation answers the big question for bronco fans leading up to their big game. they're going to be in the white uniforms when they take the field, not these orange books. we'll go to the history book. the broncos are 0-4 in super bowl when they've worn orange, and all of those losses had been blow outs. denver wore white in '87. they were white again when they beat the atlanta falcons atlanta falcons. it's going to be white against the panthers. >> but, blue, i think is the alternate uniform. and you can't wear alternate uniforms in a super bowl. >> not going to be orange. the fans will be wearing orange too. so peyton manning is earning back the money that he lost in a pay cut last winter.
6:44 am
manning agreed to reduce his 2015 salary by $4 million. but in his contract, he had the chance to earn it all back if bowl. so $2 million back in the bank after the afc championship win. the rest would come with the world championship title. he made $2 million. i spent 54 at the bar. >> on one beer. countries in need will be getting a wave of new england patriots gear. dick's sporting goods plans to donate gear. t-shirts and hats will go to world vision. it's been a long long standing tradition to donate the losing team merchandise. it's been a long day for those who wanted puppies. the jansen family had a sign
6:45 am
he said, bobby, dad said if you score, we get a pup by. so bobby scored and the jansen kids are going to get a puppy. then, last night, a young man held up a sign that said if number 13 scores on my birthday, we get a dog. then number 13, cam atkin proceeded to score a hat trick. >> they should get three dogs. >> that's what i said. no word if the family gets three puppies. that's the deal. >> there you go. that's great. when we come back, a look at the weather, the traffic, and
6:46 am
