5:01 pm
showers, with even a light accumulation in the great north woods and northern part of the white mountains. while southern new hampshire will top off in the low 50's. certainly cooler than today, but believe it or not it turns even colder before the weekend is over. more on that straight ahead. jean: new developments tonight in the search for a missing hiker. authorities have found a body in the gale river in bethlehem that looks like the woman they've been searching for. claire marie cocuzzo was last seen september 29 but wasn't reported missing until wednesday. as heather hamel reports, search crews spent the past two days looking for her until they made a grim discovery earlier today. reporter: searchers are only on the ground for three hours before they found a body it on the banks of a river. the medical examiner was taken into the mountains by atv, this
5:02 pm
cocuzzo reported her missing. the 64-year-old massachusetts woman takes an annual hike in the white mountains, her family thought she was going last week, but some people saw her at the gale head hut on saturday night trouble. after her employer reported that she hadn't come to work following the columbus day holiday, her family called officials, her car was found and a search was initial naited. the night before she left the hut was a rainy one, more than two and a half inches fell. >> i'm sure the gale river was really flowing at this point. so any river crossing in that amount of water would have been dangerous. >> oh, god. she always looked forward to it. it was, really that was her life more than anything. reporter: this was just the second day of the search. a national guard helicopter was in the air yesterday. and today there was up to 50 searchers on the ground. heather hamel, wmur news 9.
5:03 pm
jean: good samaritans helped rescue two hikers near the birch trail in jaffrey last night. a friend called 911 when they didn't return on time. the pair became lost, tired and dehydrated. officers were preparing to rescue them when two people helped them down the mountain. the hikers may have to pay for the costs related to their rescue. josh: commitment 2016 now, a busy day here, hillary clinton back in new hampshire. she's back with a bounce in her step and in the polls following tuesday night's debate performance in nevada. political reporter adam sexton was with the candidate today at it a town hall in keene. reporter: the clinton campaign is business-like but it definitely has a bounce back in its step in new hampshire. today the applause for the candidate was a little more enthusiastic and extended than usual, and importanters say they feel like they've got momentum coming out of tuesday's debate. >> i think that fafsa
5:04 pm
it is just absolutely absurd. reporter: hillary clinton drew big applause in keene state college friday afternoon talking about how she tackles student debt. but the central theme of this town hall was gun violence. >> as president i will push and achieve universal background checks, something that the majority of americans support and the majority of gun owners support. sensible, responsible gun owners support it. reporter: the former secretary of state called on responsible gun owners to organize against the n. r.a. >> it's just scare responsible folks into thinking that, you know, a black helicopter is going to land in the front yard and somebody is going to show up and take your guns. that is nonsense. reporter: clinton answered 15 yeses, one of them on the northeast energy direct natural gas pipeline proposed for the state's southern tier and the
5:05 pm
>> what will you do to change f.r.c., because candidates tell us it's a local issue. it's not. we have no control. >> the concerns that residents have expressioned about ferc are legitimate because the process that it's employing does not give enough weight to public opinion in the locations where pipelines are going through. reporter: there was plenty of buzz in the crowd about clinton's recent debate performance, but at least one undecided voter says he is still shopping for a candidate. >> at the moment i'm not too sure, but i'm definitely making sure to hear what they all have to say. reporter: the candidate is rounding out her day with an event in nashua. coming up at 6:00 we'll tell you about a new poll in new hampshire that could explain some of the clinton campaign's renewed confidence. adam sexton, wmur news 9. josh: thanks. a rare appearance for republican candidate mike huckabee the new hampshire today. unlike a lot of the other candidates, huckabee has been putting his energy and resources in states like iowa and south carolina.
5:06 pm
in fact he hasn't been here since april. while he did finish third in 2008 and says he likes the state, he needs to see that the state likes him back. >> you have to put your flag where you believe it's going to be saluted and that's always something you evaluate every time, you look at it and you say where are we doing welsh where do we have to do well. josh: fair enough, but while he was here today he as took part in our candidate cafe series, sitting down to talk about everything from his love of music to his time as a of tv talk show host. and don't count him out yet, there's a new sign today that vice president biden may jump into the race for the white house after all. sally kidd is in washington with the latest update. reporter: josh, this latest speculation comes after one of the vice president's closest advisors send an e-mail to former biden staffers.
5:07 pm
people guessing. and president obama? >> i'm not going to comment on what joe is doing or not doing him reporter: but now this from an ex-biden chief of staff, former senator ted kaufman. in an e-mail to staffers, quote, if he runs he will run because of his burning conviction that we need to fundamentally change the balance in our economy and the political structure to restore the ability of the middle class to get ahead. >> former senator kaufman is one of the few close confidants of vice president biden, so for him to sort of preview a campaign message is significant. reporter: the e-mail dampened speculation that biden would not launch a bid after hillary clinton's strong debate performance. >> hillary clinton has good reason to be concerned because joe biden pulls support disproportionately away from her. reporter: kaufman says the vice president would run a campaign
5:08 pm
from the heart, and he also writes, if he decides to run, we will need each and every one of you yesterday. underscoring the organizational and fund raising disadvantages biden might face if he makes the leap. another possible clue, sources close to the vice president say he's been making calls this week to leading democrats in some of the early primary states, like iowa and new hampshire. sally kidd, wmur news 9. jean: senator rand paul arrived in new hampshire today for a three-day trip tonight at 7:00. he'll be stopping at a bowling for liberty event in manchester. tomorrow senator paul will be in ashland. or ted cruz will also be in contoocook tomorrow at the hopkinton fair grounds. and former governor martin o'malley has events planned in laconia, manchester and nashua. senators kelly ayotte and jeanne shaheen are working together to bring mental health care
5:09 pm
coverage to veterans. they met with providers and officials today in manchester. the coverage would come from the choice card program which would allow any veteran who does not live near a v. after hospital to access care from any hospital. >> we want to make sure this program works for veterans, that it works for those people who are providing care and it's clear there's still information that everybody needs. jean: new hampshire's only v.a. hospital is in panthers. josh: time now to see how traffic is flowing around the state, looking live at 293 north in manchester, where traffic appears to be moving pretty good for a friday. jean: peggy james joins us live with a look at your evening commute. saw a lot of leaf peepers heading north today, peggy. >> yes, heading into the weekend people are headed north and so far they've got a pretty good ride and can enjoy the foliage at a good pace.
5:10 pm

5:12 pm
and clinton t if you think storm damage is the only cost of climate change, think again. from the rising price of food to higher insurance rates for homes and businesses, the economic damage will only get worse. but with american-made clean energy, we can save money on electricity and spur innovation to create
5:13 pm
with 50% clean energy by 2030. so, what are we waiting for? jean: a huge scaffolding collapse is under investigation tonight in houston, six workers were hurt. but it appears they're going to be okay. the 7-story building was under construction when the scaffolding collapsed, scattering debris all over the city block. authorities are still trying to figure out what caused this accident. josh: medics say israeli troops killed three palestinians after clashes in several west bank towns today. also dozens of palestinians fired at a holy site known in

5:16 pm
a sign of things to come with the very strong el nino, that's the warming of the pacific ocean, and it really churns up the jet stream and drives a very active weather pattern out west. what does that mean for us? possibly a slightly milder winter. take a look right now at a fall scene up there in plymouth where yeah, the find is in full peak conditions right now. a beautiful shot up there at plymouth state university. you're also looking at more find in warren and mount kearsarge. right now we're at peak conditions across most of new hampshire. you recall how warm september was, that kept the foliage from kicking in across the north country. so we've seen it pop in many areas all at the same time within a 7 to 10-day period. yes, there are a few spots up north that are a little past peak, but most of the great north woods, white mountains, points south all at peak right now, and just another few days away from manchester points south and southeast. so get out and enjoy the fall color. but bundle up, because times are
5:17 pm
achanging and the weather pattern is changing big time over the weekend. you'll notice quite a few showers upstream moving in our direction, in the form of rain right now. as it's too warm to support anything but liquid. but later on tonight colder air will begin to approach from southeastern canada. can you see it played out on the radar scopes around north bay and points north, with some snow showers that will likely hit the north country after about three or four in the morning. but again ahead of that today, still relatively mild. right at the average in the lower 60's, after bottoming out at 40. tomorrow and sunday a different story though. right now cooler air beginning to filter in across the northern part of new hampshire, mid to upper 40's. but around 60 in southern new hampshire. this is as warm as we'll see through the next several days. maybe you want to take in one of the friday night football games, yeah, seasonably chilly but very pleasant. low 50's at kickoff, near 50 at
5:18 pm
half time and low to mid 40's on your way home. that's the average for kickoff in southern new hampshire. if you're going farther north, be prepared for five or six degrees cooler in terms of the temperature pattern. mid 30's will do it up north by morning, on average upper third to around 40 central and southern new hampshire. here comes all that cold air out of canada for the next couple days with the coldest sunday and sunday night. in terms of showers, notice what happens on our future cast, yeah, those rain showers move in by early morning, in the form of a mix or snow in the great north woods, down through the white mountains, scattered about for your saturday and we could see anywhere from a coating to an inch or two in the white mountains and a coating to on inch in the great north woods. behind that even colder, with more sun on sunday, could even be a scattered flurry anywhere late sunday afternoon as a
5:19 pm
comes in for monday and then temperatures bounce back to average for most of next week, after monday night. so a little preview of november, before we get there, but it won't last all that long. jean: thanks, mike. how about this, we are less than two hours away from the return of hockey to manchester. josh: the brand new echl monarchs open their season tonight at the verizon wireless arena. jason king is there now with a preview. reporter: that's right, guys, hockey back here in manchester, it's opening night for the manchester monarchs and a new era in monarchs hockey. of course although it the 15th season of professional hockey here at the verizon wireless arena, it's the inaugural season for the echl. as you mentioned. so to put it in perspective, we use a baseball analogy, the ahl monarchs that left and went to ontario, california also an affiliate of the los angeles kings, is like triple a in baseball.
5:20 pm
the echl is like double a, like the fisher cats we have here down the street. and also in case you're wondering, echl, used to stand for east coast hockey league. but because teams aren't really from the east coast, many of them, they did away with the words, so it's simply the echl, and echl doesn't stand for anything, if you can follow that. what it stands for is great hockey, and that's what the guys expect to play tonight. >> hard working team. we've got pretty good skill set, a lot of guys that like to score goals, so it should be exciting hockey to watch. >> guys are ready, to get the regular season under way. one game in weekend, friday night at home. so i think everyone is excited. i think it will be a good turnout and hopefully will get first w on the board. reporter: they're expecting about 7,000 fans. seats still available, so come

5:22 pm
this and what kind of junk jean: a maine toddler is back home after fighting the same e-coli bacteria that took the life of another maine child. public health authorities confirm the two boys carried the same strain of e-coli. both children attended the oxford county fair last month. but the state is also searching for other common factors in these cases. studies have shown that moderate use of some alcohol like red wine can have health benefits. josh: but a new report says binge drinking and underage drinking has a significant cost to the country. dr. timothy johnson explains why. reporter: out with friends after work, maybe it starts with one drink. no harm in getting another. but the true price could be far
5:23 pm
more than you think. the c. d. c. researchers measured the cost to the country due to drinking alcohol including health care expenses, criminal activity, and property damage. they found that binge drinking alone costs the government more than $190 billion each year in health care and productivity. add in underage drinking and drinking during pregnancy and excessive alcohol consumption costs the country $250 billion in 2010. the message is clear. excessive alcohol consumption is expensive and these costs are often lowered by taxpayers, so drink responsibly and not too much, because you may not be the only one who pays for the tab. with this medical minute, i'm dr. timothy johnson. josh: up next, more disturbing numbers on the growing drug abuse problem in new hampshire, and state leaders are meeting today to try to do what i they

5:43 pm
still a little sun to be had, but it sets at 6:01 tonight. and that will be the latest sunset until march 13th, as the daylight continues to dwindle here. what else is dwippedding, the warm air and mild temperatures. we have cooler conditions for the upcoming weekend. so the coldest air has been well advertised this week, no doubt about that, moves in beginning tomorrow. but really will be felt later tomorrow night into monday morning. the growing season will end for many tomorrow night, where it doesn't end early sunday morning it will certainly end everywhere by early monday morning. teens and 20's by then. mixed and snow showers up north later tonight, especially predawn hours of saturday morning, into saturday evening. even a light accumulation and then temperatures do bounce back nicely starting tuesday of next week. not a whole lot on radar, so if
5:44 pm
