so that does cause delays. malone says even though theyve gotten some complaints- they have a 95 percent on time rate. but they want to get that up to 100 percent. which means they need more permanent drivers. to apply for a job as a ccsd bus driver visit our website at fox5 vegas dot com. toss to weather now fox5 weather 24/7 gusty winds will continue through the weekend. a red flag warning is in effect for the las

(nats) 715am this is the day the mcdonalds have been waiting for the last year.... the hope: that jadon and anias, 13 month old conjoined twins will be separated at last (dr. sanjay gupta/cnn) what were you thinking when you were
hall this morning? what was going through your mind? (nicole/mother of conjoined twins) it's just not real. it's really not even real. to me, it's like another surgery from before. (nats) jadon and anias were born sharing 1.5 centimeters of brain tissue. they are known as craniopagus twins -- and have undergone three complex operations over the past five months to slowly separate them. today is the fourth and final stage. (dr. goodrich/performin g twins' surgery) so here's the model of our present set of twins. and we have, this is anias on this side, and jadon on this side. no one in the world has operated on more twins like jadon and anias, than neurosurgeon dr. james goodrich. (dr. sanjay gupta/cnn) when you first met the mcdonalds did you layout any specific stats? how did you discuss it with them? was it more of a scientific discussion or an emotional on? (dr. goodrich/performin g twins' surgery) i said the goal is
out without neurological issues, but one has to be realistic. i mean you can't separate two brains, particularly if there's fusion, without the potential risk of something happening. helping improve the chances of a good outcome: 3d models like these. life like, anatomically perfect and available in the operating room - they act as a blueprint to practice and review - before the operation even begins. (dr. sanjay gupta/cnn) "i want to give you a little bit of an idea of what's happening here. operation they've got to continuously move jaden and anias, so this is the position they were in beforehand and they essentially flip like this and then like this, so now they are going to focus on this part of the bone and this part of the brain." 430pm just about 7 hours after the operation began, nicole, christian, and their entire family are playing the waiting game (dr. sanjay gupta/cnn) do you feel anxious? do you feel settled? how do you feel? (christian/father of
kind of have a little nervous energy (dr. sanjay gupta/cnn) how about you, nicole? (nicole/mother of conjoined twins) what's waiting in my stomach is for that phone call, ok, we're in that i call it the land of the unknown. an hour later, the surgical team hits the land of the unknown, and then well past midnight, they continue to work through the twins' brains, vein by vein and, then ---- 2:11am (dr. sanjay gupta/cnn) it's been about 17 hours now since they started operating, and you can see for the first time jaden and anias are on separate operating room tables. both boys were in surgery this morning, but are now out. all together, it took 27 hours to separate the babies, then rebuild their skulls. the parents have since spent time with anias and jadon, and now are preparing for weeks of recovery at the hospital. one guy's diving
