making sure that their homes and their kids clothes are good to go as well. all day we've seen parents and kids coming by to drop off things they had around their house -- several told me that they want to take every precaution they can -- including having the epa come out to test their homes for mercury. the epa says crews have tested about 75 homes -- and half of those were mandatory based on readings of the student's backpacks or clothes. kristina huddleston lives in one of the homes the epa said it had to test... she told me over the weekend three people came to check out her apartment -- the school's vice principal, a worker from the epa and a national guardsman "the national guard is actually the one that did the checking, he had a machine, it was a handheld device, and he went room by room and checked my vacuum, checked the washer, checked the dryer,
corner and cranny." she told me it took a total of 30 minutes.... her house like most of the houses that have been tested have come up clean, but there is one family that was told to get out of the house. they are still out of their home tonight. hillary clinton is canceling a campaign event here in the valley... after coming down with pneumonia. president bill clinton will be at the event instead. clinton has been ill this weekend...but tried to power through scheduled appearances.

"if you are in a humid and hot environment where she was, you're more eligable to become dehydrated. these things compound themselves, if
it from the beginning, it is very easy to fall behind the 8 ball, you end up feeling more dehydrated and sick than you already are, and that is the situation that we're in. doctor constantine george tells us pnemonia can make it difficult for older patients to breathe, and they often suffer confusion. but most forms of it are not contagious. coming up at 5... we'll hear from our political analyst mark peplowski, on how this illness will impact clinton's run for presidency. a family in california is asking for your help after an 80- year-old man with missing on a trip to laughlin. now they say the grandfather has been lost for almost a month... and needs help. fox5's adam herbets spoke to the family and found out if they've gotten any leads. adam? john/ cyndi we first told you about this story when metro got involved, but that was about a month ago... and so far they haven't much luck. but they have gotten a few leads which are giving them hope. the last time anyone in the family saw grandpa was at
thought he was just going downstairs to play the slots or smoke a cigarette... but he never came back. the next day -- they saw surveillance video of him in bullhead city getting something to drink at a gas station, but ever since then... most of the leads have gone cold. now the family is especially worried because he's 80 years old... he's been missing for a while now... and he's probably scared because he might not even know who or where he is. "you don't think about it, that it's ever going to happen so when it does happen it just hits you really bad " my grandmother she is praying and hoping and i know the first couple days were really hard on her there are a lot of people praying for this man -- we want to show you his picture one more time. these are the clothes he was wearing last... his name is daniel caballero.

ke people that weren't captured ok. donald trump compared his sacrifices to the sacrifices of two parents who lost their son in war. how would you answer that father? what sacrifice have you made for your country? i think i've made a lot of sacrifices, built
great structures. i've had tremendous success, i think... those are sacrifices? hockey team has a name! the only problem is we only know half of the name. this weekend bill foley announced the nhl's 31st team will be called "something" knights. vince sapienza spoke with local hockey fans.. and
"something" could be... john..cyndi.... as we've come to find out through this whole process... bill foley isn't just a great a businessman... he's a great show-man.... every time he gives an interview he always leaves you wanting and asking for more.... and he did it again this past weekend...almost teasing us....giving just 50-percent of the team name... "the team will be something knights, k-n-i-g-h-t-s, something knights." in an interview on sportsbook radio with host brian blessing, las vegas hockey owner bill foley painted us the most descript picture to date. with not just a name....but the jersey's and logos. "red rocks, that red color, vegas oriented. it almost looks like a steel mesh with another color underneath the steel mesh that brings out that knight look, these are going to be great looking jerseys and great looking uniforms this is going to be a name that our playrs can rally
never give in, we're going to create a culture." and that culture is something fans are chomping at the bit to be a part of. "we're excited to rally behind a team, locally it's a big thing for vegas, so being able to attach ourselves to a jersey and color scheme is going to be a great time for everybody." foley says the colors are done. the name is trademarked. the domain name has been reserved. "i am thrilled, it's not as good as black knights, but 99% as good, too much push back from people, army got worried about us using black knights and i didn't want to fight that battle." foley also tells brian blessing that they are planning to break ground on the practice facility this wednesday. the site is just east of downtown summerlin. the two ice rink, 105-thousand square foot facility is estimated to cost nearly 20-million. but as exciting as construction is for the staff. it's all about the name and jersey's for the fans. "the name people will eventually wrap their arms around, the jersey has to be slick and i think they realize that, the caps, the
sweaters, will take off." "it's something the fans rally behind, something we're going to wear on the front of our jerseys, back of our jerseys it's something cities bleed, it's imporant to have a good team name, something people can rally behind." "either way it will be something on my wish list for christmas i'll have to ask my parents for.so" bill foley says he wanted to make the full name announcement prior to frozen fury weekend... which is the two games being played at t-mobile starting october 7th.... but that is not likely anymore.... so we're still waiting on an actual date...
