6:10 am
6:11 am
doug: doug: welcome back. thanksgiving just four days away. one local turkey farmer says that's good business. for the first year, the owners of lilac hedge farm soldous over 40 turkeys for the holiday. now five years later, they're close to selling 700. even though they had signups open for a couple of months for those birds, there are always customers who wait 'til the last
6:12 am
also baling hay, they can tell you how the animal was raised, how it was fed. i think that's really key. people want to know where their food is coming from. doug: the good news is mackay says they still have a good supply left of turkeys between 14 and 20 pounds. antoinette: the salvation army making sure everyone has a turkey on the table this thanksgiving. the organization handed out nearly 2,100 meal baskets they include a turkey, a roasting pan, vegetables, and pumpkin pie. despite the economic recovery, the salvation army says it is giving away 75% more baskets this year than five years ago. >> i think folks experiencing poverty, folks who are working a couple of part-time jobs just to try to make ends meet, are not quite experiencing the same economic recovery that everybody is. antoinette: the salvation army says thanks to generous donations, it will likely have enough thanksgiving baskets for
6:13 am
yesterday made for a beautiful day for america's hometown thanksgiving celebration in plymouth. volunteers worked so hard to make this parade a big success, and it really was. the floats honor the history of plymouth including the pilgrims and the mayflower. it is an annual tradition for thousands of people, including the newscenter 5 eyeopener team. doug: look at that. antoinette: i got to take part in the parade emily, cindy and olessa. and it really was a fantastic time. that is america's hometown. the people are marvelous. doug: not just local folks. i saw a shout-out from one of my friends from arizona that was here just for that. kelly ann: the weather was just right. if it was today, it would have been a different story. antoinette: exactly. kelly ann: we lucked out for that. antoinette: mid 50's.
6:14 am
to get. there's snow moving in. snowfall accumulation mainly confining themselves into western new england. here's a look at the snowfall forecast. throughout the day today, that snow on the radar is likely going to lock in place for western massachusetts and the berkshires, and really throughout the green mountain range as well. so that's where we see upwards of 8 inches possible on the highest of mountains. now we move down into the lower elevations. worcester hills could see a grassy coati tomorrow morning while the rest of us, it's mainly a cool and gusty rain. late tonight and tomorrow morning as temperature drop, a few less snowflakes can't be ruled out. rainfall right now is pushing northward. this is the main track at this point. it's a very light rainfall which right now is mainly confining itself on to the very far eastern portion of the coast. you're moving from 128 eastward. moving to the north shore as well and making its way to far
6:15 am
this is now extending into new hampshire sea coast as well and the merrimack valley where we are seeing heavier showers at this point pushing through. the snow is steady although it is very light pushing through through the berkshires trying to push eastward onto 91, likely staying just west of 91, though, and that's where it's going to stay through much of today, extending through much of new york and vermont as well. temperatures right now down to the 30's as we push into western portions of massachusetts. 32 degrees move eastward. temperatures well into the upper 40's. this is likely going to be the high temperature of the day. 48 degrees in boston. hyannis at 49 degrees. it's only going to get slightly cooler this afternoon, dropping into the mid 40's, but we're adding in some wind. that means the temperatures will feel even colder. that wind-chill factor down into the 30's throughout the entire day. futurecast showing the main rainfall pushing off the shore
6:16 am
surprised if you see spits of drizzle. snow in western massachusetts stays in place for the berkshires, starts to make its way toward worcester county as well. as the rain/snow mix initially, but as we move through tonight, a light snowfall will be possible, which is why there is that likelihood of a grassy coating. that's in place for early tomorrow morning as well. could see a snowflake or two try to move into the lower drying out through much of the area. the clouds will start to slowly break, likely holding on to them through the afternoon. that snow in the berkshires sticks around into the afternoon for the highest of elevations, even as we move throughout the day on monday. futurecast is showing those temperatures and wind chills down into the 20's and 30's for today. that will be the case even into the evening. waking up tomorrow morning, we're seeing wind chills down
6:17 am

6:18 am
off the shelves. the fda says the products were manufactured before november 8 at a plant where listeria monocytogenes were found. listeria symptoms can include fever, muscle aches, stiffness, and stomach pain. consumers are urged to discard the product immediately. doug: oh, my goodness. how about this one. a stunning situation in texas. first responders somehow missed a toddler on the floor of that crashed s.u.v. the 3-year-old girl apparently thrown to the floor in that accident. a local fire chief says responders saw the car seat in the back, made sure it was empty, but could not open the backdoor. a tow truck driver found her after taking the car to a junkyard. she was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries. announcer: now here's bob halloran with sportscenter 5 powered by xfinity. bob: the patriots will square off with the 49'ers in san francisco later this afternoon without rob gronkowski due to injury and without defensive end jabaal sheard due to coach's
6:19 am
he went to the celtics game on friday and could have gone to the bruins-jets game last night. not much of a hockey fan, i guess. well, he missed the bruins scoring three unanswered goals in the second period. brad marchand and patrice bergeron breaking out of their mini-slumps. the bruins go on to beat winnipeg 4-1. celtics in detroit. final minute. tobias harris knocks down a three to tie the game at 92. the celtics didn't call timeout. they just head down the floor, and crowder gets a good look fr smart rebounds. he misses. and horford puts it up and in. celtics take the lead. pistons have one last chance, but here comes horford. he makes the block, preserving the 94-92 win. the celtics play again in minnesota tomorrow. that's sports. have a great day. antoinette:. all right. tom brady in san francisco near his hometown. doug: one of the suburbs of san francisco, right? he's showing his love for

6:21 am
as it affects how well it works. brilinta helps keep my platelets from sticking together and forming a clot. brilinta reduced the chance of another heart attack. or dying from one. it worked better than plavix. >>don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers, a history of bleeding in the brain, tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery, and all medicines you take. >>talk to your doctor about brilinta. i'm doing all i can. that includes brilinta. if you can't afford your medication,

6:23 am
kelly ann: heading out this morning, our temperatures are where they're going to sit throughout the day. we're tracking light rainfall for much of the region. snow is still an issue as you move into western massachusetts and much of western new england. that snow stays in place through much of today, doug and antoinette. doug: kelly ann, thank you. a brain tumor at any age would be devastating news. antoinette: but for this week's a-plus, relearning how to walk years old was part of life's challenges. i caught up with lyeth sayegh at catholic memorial high school in west roxbury. >> good to meet you. antoinette: just like any high school senior, lyeth sayegh is busy with college applications while keeping his grades up. but unlike most kids, he's recovered from brain surgery. >> i was put in children's hospital, and i had surgery to remove a brain tumor in the
6:24 am
11, 2012, when lyeth was in seventh grade. >> i had to relearn how to walk, how to relearn how to use my hands. i ended up switching from a righty to a lefty. i know it sounds strange, but i didn't understand. i wasn't in shock when i first found out. antoinette: sure enough, that laid-back attitude carried into his recovery. >> i'm out with a stomach virus and i'll be in tomorrow and i'll do a full day and i'll be up and down stairs. i might put gym off for a week or two. antoinette: sidelined for several months, but thanks to neurology team at dana farber, he entered high school with a clear goal, to one day become a pediatric neurooncologist, helping kids just like himself. >> i can give them heart-to-heart advice on how to conquer it and how to live out their life without being upset all the time. antoinette: his unwavering optimism which will one day help in healing others, lyeth sayegh of catholic memorial, this week's a-plus.
6:25 am

6:26 am
the clock is running right now on his new administration. his choices will draw extra scrutiny with no past track record to weigh. will president-elect trump surround himself with more traditional confidants like reince priebus, former rnc chief, or lean more towards political operatives like steve bannon, his new chief strategist? it's unclear. the transition team is in transition. but we should know soon. what is clear, trump is promises and already softening others. reflecting consistency with his campaign pledges, he'll put pro-life judges on the supreme court. the second amendment seems safe while the first amendment may be in jeopardy. but the wall, he says, now might actually be a fence in sections and impractical in others. instead of deporting all illegal immigrants, he'll target what he calls the criminal element and block any incoming syrian refugees.
6:27 am
defeated opponent hillary clinton in jail. will he drain the swamp or simply restock it? depends on your definition and point of view. and instead of throwing out all of obamacare, he's opened the door to reform rather than repeal and replace. both his supporters and detractors are not quite sure what president trump will do. rethinking and/or moderating a large number of his campaign promises, however, would be a welcome start in his first 100

[applause] >> thank you. david: the mayor drew applause for that acknowledgement. still, not everyone was satisfied. >> one of the things i'd like to hear going forward is perhaps a change in your rhetoric. instead of saying, like, no hostility but actually like i really want to hear your emotions as clear or as raw as they are. david: boston's history with busing, police relations and equality opportunity came up as problems. afterwards, people said they planned to hold the mayor and other city officials accountable for solutions. >> so we'll see if neighborhoods are equal. >> i think it's a job that will take a very long time. >> one of the measurements will be how many people come out for the dialogues in the different areas of the city. david: the mayor declined a goal for how many people he'd like to see attend these town halls and
