many as seven patients and a caregiver. >> parking was a concern. traffic, the way that the house is configured so that whether or not they can really fit 14 people in there with special needs. >> reporter: neighbors were also concerned about property values being affected. >> we are disappointed. we don't think that the applicants proved their case. >> we did everything right and we have very open and honest from back in july. >> reporter: stipulations require parking plans for the home, handicapped accessibility and other measures as well. but for now cheryl is absorbing moment in honor of her son. >> it's for nick and it's for everybody that follows in his footsteps and this is my promise kept to my child. i know he's smiling down at me today. >> reporter: they are expected to officially close on the house next week and they hope to have

pickup locations and less driver fraud. if you're not comfortable, they recommend turning off location services for the app and manually typing the address. >> when you're not using it, close it down. don't let it run in the background. that gives you a little more control. >> i think that would make me think twice about using that app or maybe just looking to other competitors. >> i think these are small prices to pay for an app that ultimately provides a lot of convenience. >> reporter: even more alarming than app location requests are the those that ask to access your address book. that kind of permission not only puts your privacy at risk but everyone you are connected to. so it makes you think twice about clicking "allow" without even thinking it through. >> bill cosby suffered another legal setback in his criminal case. a judge has ruled cosby's

got to be concerned about. there's a lot of moisture streaming in from the south and you can see all that yellow and orange shading and this lifts right up the eastern seaboard a moisture-rich system. across the neighborhood new york it's a good thing this system is not coming tonight because temperatures are very close to freezing in many spots. right now it's 38, 37 in burlington they've got about .10 of rain or so. the set-up with this system, one storm off to the north, this first one pulling in lots of gulf moisture and that means it's going to be a very wet tuesday it looks like from at least 3:00 a.m. on wednesday we will be dealing with some rain. so you wake up at 9:00 a.m. some spots could see a little bit of filtered sun in the morning. most of us start off cloudy but it will be dry until midday. by afternoon the rain arrives around 2:00 or 3:00. here's your afternoon commute and you can see some pockets of
heavy rain all across the area, snow in the poconos. heavy rain still at 9:00, especially south of the city and it keeps on coming right through midnight before gradually wind can down wednesday morning and skies will eventually try to clear on wednesday afternoon. we're going to get about .5 to .75 inch of rain before all is said and down. but if you're in the poconos, that's where some snow could fall. temperatures above freezing but watch for that 1-3 inches in the poconos. and then by later in the week, a cold blast of air from eastern canada will take temperatures down to about 10 degrees below average. not a ton of great news in this forecast. 46 degrees, wednesday is the nicest day of the week, we'll start with clouds and the sun tries to peek out and thursday another front comes through and look how cold it is friday and saturday. highs may not make it past the 30s in some spots. so winter is coming. winter feels like it's
