a missouri teen battling cancer
12:34 pm
tracking for tuesday. a missouri teen battling cancer checked off everything on her bucket list...except for one thing...a fairy tale wedding.
12:35 pm
but this week, her dream came true. steve harris has the story. most little girls dream of having a fairy tale wedding...emily linneman is no exception. but 3 years ago she was diagnosed with a bone cancer that took her leg. then, a couple of months ago, they found an inoperable tumor in her hip...doctors told her to start working on her bucket list. a list that included playing basketball... riding a harley... getting a tatoo...and a miniature pig. one by one, she finished them all...all except that little girls dream... "she said mom this isn't fair. i'm not supposed to die yet. i'm supposed to get married and have kids." this is where jake schroer enters the story. they met at a bowling alley 5 months ago... "and he came into this knowing how sick she was...and fell in love with her anyway." he asked...she said yes... and people came together to make it happen...from the winery, to the ice sculpture made by 2 bikers... to big dave, the tatoo artist and ordained minister, who married them...
12:36 pm
it was the wedding of a lifetime... "all i wanted was for her to look beautiful in front of her friends and family...and it ended up looking like a fairy tale. it honestly was." at 17, emily got her fairy tale wedding...a little sooner than she'd hoped. but life doesn't always cooperate. "more than anything she wanted to walk down the isle but her legs quit working a couple days before...she couldn't walk" but what matters...what really matters...is that emily's dream came true. steve harris, news 4. stick around.. congress looks to

geiger. on thursday.. the current highway bill extension will
12:39 pm
congress needs to pass a new bill.. and its opted for another month long extension to work on a long term highway bill.. last week.. the house transportation and infrastructure committee approved a multi-year surface transportation bill.. which establishes a plan on how the u-s maintains roads and bridges.. a debate and vote is likely to happen in the house next week. earlier this year the senate passed it's own version of a multi-year highway bill.. which will be matched to the outcome of the house bill.. and an amendment offered when the house bill is considered.. is the safe trucking act.. which lets heavier semi-trucks drive on the nation's interstates... and that could make the nations roads more efficient. "the moment you do go from one state to another you can have different weight limits and all of a sudden that can really impede efficient transportation from one state to the other because a lot of grain that's grown in one state is actually delivered to another state or it's processed in another state so having that ability to have more of that seamless transportation that
12:40 pm
steenhoek says trucks can go from an 80 thousand pound configuration to 91 thousand pounds.. but only if they add a sixth axle.. he says that distributes the weight more on the road.. which helps the road imprint.. and gives another foot of stopping distance.. and would take more semi's off the road.. just like last week.. corn is influenced by wheat in the markets today... but that's working against what's going on in the soy complex... "the corn market is strong today.. followed today by the real leader is the wheat market. big rains down in parts of texas, the delta. worries that we could have some..." " planting loss issues, and really the corn market's being artificially supported by the lack of producer movement at these levels. the soybean market is really going opposite of the other grains, down sharply today. i think the concern that the soybean market has is number one large u.s. and world supplies we've been also artificially supported by the lack of producer movement." "the cattle market's coming under pressure today, we had poor cash
12:41 pm
cattle trade last week, compared to expectations. the cattle on feed report was also a bit on the negative side. so, that's adding to pressure today. expect cash cattle today to trade no better than steady." "yeah, the market is bouncing back to start the week here after closing almost limit down on friday, the strength here is just more window dressing support and the cash market is, we're still running a discount on the futures versus the cash so that's giving us some support. but look for supplies to pick up here to balance the fourth quarter." the colfax sheep and goat auction on saturday saw 370 head of sheep. feeder lambs fetched the days high average price of two dollars and three cents per pound, while fed lambs averaged a dollar.. 52 per pound. the one hundred 36 goats at the auction saw a high average price ranging from a hundred 15 to a hundred 32 dollars and 50 cents per head. and that's all we have for the show today.. thanks for joining.. our stories are online.. go to
