sanders later helped david introduce the musical guest "the 1975." in other news: three people are dead following a stand-off in texas. the deputy- involved shooting happened friday afternoon... while the standoff itself continued until 1- p-m yesterday. as of saturday afternoon, neighbors who live near the scene were still waiting to get back into their homes. a driver goes on a hit-and-run rampage after a fight inside a baltimore bar- and it's all caught on camera. police say the driver was allegedly being assaulted inside the bar when he ran to his car. he then crashed his mini van into several vehicles before backing up along the sidewalk where he ran over a woman.

'do we let you buy a grill and say you cant put a steak on it? fireworks. you can buy them, but flooding into iowas borders even though our law says you cant use them" the bill was designed so individual municipalities could opt out of the law-- but a recently passed amendment from a des moines senator would give the municipalities more flexibility, an "opt-in" danielson says that's inaffective, and -- "when things happen, it puts fireworks become a problem flashbacks. "if they go off before i know excited you want to hide sometimes' danielson says regulating fireworks would solve this problem by creating a responsibility policy -- so neighbors would have to make each other aware they'd be using them. but not all veterans are so sure people would follow this policy its a complicated issue
through the legislature...one that's not likely to be decided other lawmakers say they're still unsure about the bill. eastern iowans are voicing their concerns this weekend in dubuque. this happening during the first cracker-barrel of the year. during the public event in dubuque -- people asked state legislators questions. issues ranged from water quality to education funding. but for most of them -- one topic seemed to be the main concern. "a lot of the doctors from my understanding having not signed & up, and it's affecting a lot of people...especially the handicapped, the older folks that need care." two other public forums are set for march fifth and april second. a sheriff's deputy is bringing joy to the lives of homeless people in his community.

"it's somebody that i can trust...it's somebody that i know is on our side...he's not i'm not out there to be an adversary. i'm out there to make sure they're ok, that they're not any problems." the deputy is eligible for retirement... but doesn't plan to do so right now. his focus is on helping people. today is the big game. the denver broncos take on the carolina panthers in super bowl 50 tonight. san francisco is jammed to capacity this weekend... forcing police to turn away thousands of football fans. a fireworks show and a performance from the rock band "one republic" attracted visitors wanting to

means- a whole lot of food. super bowl 50 kicks off tonight -- and get this: the average person will eat more than 6 thousand calories tonight. so kwwl's ally crutcher is teaming up with fareway dietitian whitney packebush for some healthy and tasty appetizer ideas to bring to your party, good morning ally... hey lauren, good morning thanks so much for sticking with right. this is a great appetizer flavors are a little bit different. and what i really like about this is, i have a recipe i am going to share with
throw in anything you've got in the house into this tortilla... assuming you have some cream cheese, you can make these work you are really struggling right now, and they look pretty easy. they are so really all you have to do is mix cheese and i like these whipped cream cheeses. they have less fat because they have more air in them but i just think they are a lot easier to anything, and it's much easier to spread. yes it's easier for cooking. i have rotel in the house you could use some salsa. you just want to drain off the extra liquid, otherwise it can make wheat tortilla. so i am going to show you just the basic concept for rolling these -- oh and the house into this tortilla... have to do is mix the cream, some rotel, if you don't jalapenos if you want, green onions, and i've used a whole freezer so pop some in the oven... whatever you've got going in the kitchen, and you
then all you do is take your filling, and you need to know which way you roll your tortillas. i always roll away from me. so you want to leave some extra space that way. so, some extra space on this end since i will roll away from me. because little space around the edges, and like i said a little space in the direction you're rolling. these are super simple, you can make them ahead of time too if you don't want them for the big game the flavors marry together. and how we have this set up, you can pull the saran wrap right over, roll it up, and then put it in and stick together, and then you'll be left with a bunch of these in your fridge. then slice them either when you get to the party those usually aren't very pretty, edible though. they just aren't very pretty so i usually eat those as i'm slicing. snackin' while you make it! and like you said let them sit in the firdge together as well. so definitely put them in the fridge for about an hour or so. sounds good, yummy and easy alright sounds great. thanks whitney we'll toss this online, and we'll toss it back
