grandmother. rezaian, abedini and hekmati all spent time at iran' s notorious evin prison, where they were allegedly subjected to beatings, solitary confinement and psychological abuse. president obama, remaining steadfast in his message, that it was diplomatic negotiations that led to their release, that deal quietly played out outside of the international nuclear deal negotiated this past july. president obama: we' ve achieved this historic progress through diplomacy without resorting to another war in the middle east. elizabeth: as for the remaining prisoners, it' s believed a fourth ex-prisoner, is still in iran. and an american student, who was released independently, has already headed home. elizabeth hur, abc news, new york. stephanie: among those prisoners was a man from massachusetts. matthew trevithick, a hingham native, was released independently in the exchange. the 30-year-old went to iran in september for a four-month language program associated with

stephanie: now to commitment 2016, and we continue with our series of questions for the presidential candidates. adam: tonight we ask, what would your administration do to create jobs in this country? rick santorum that' s number one, : i mean manufacturing. i believe we have a tremendous opportunity to help the 74% of americans 25 to who don' t have a 65 college degree, and give them an opportunity to be able work and get paid a decent wage, by teaching
skills in our high schools and our votech schools, as well as in our technical schools after high school. train people for the jobs, create job opportunities by making america a much more friendly manufacturing place to do it. there' s no question, there' s a manufacturing renaissance going on in this country right now, in spite of the fact that we have a president who is trying to drive manufacturers offshore. now imagine, if we had manufacturing policies that actually encouraged manufacturers to come, we' d be employing a lot of those 90 million people on the sidelines, be able to come back into the workforce, with good paying jobs, get skills. we just need to have the
do it. donald trump we' re going to : bring jobs back from china. we' re going to bring jobs back from japan, and india, and brazil, and so many countries. we have been absolutely taken over the cold, our jobs have just disappeared; especially if you look at this area, what, i mean the number in new hampshire, and in new england, generally, you look at the factories that have closed all over in new england. we' re bringing jobs back. they' re going to be coming back, like nobody every believed. we lost hundreds of thousands of jobs to different countries. primarily, for one reason, they manipulate their currency to such an extent that our companies are unable to compete. and you have things like nafta, where people would just float into mexico and they float into frankly other places also. we' re going to stop that, we' re going to stop corporate companies can' t get their money back and they end up moving out to get their money and to get lower taxes, because i' m going to cut taxes, very
re going to have business come back into the we' re right now the highest-taxed nation in the that' s going to change. jeb bush: the government does not create jobs, but it can create an environment where jobs are created. and i know a little bit about this, because i was governor of the largest swing state where 1.3 million jobs were created during my eight years. seven out of those eight years, we led the nation on job growth. and the way you do that is bring certainty to regulation, and lessen the regulatory load, shift most of the regulation back to the states, create a regulatory budget where you know what the costs are for every well intended idea. because all of those ideas stifle job creation. simplifying the tax code is another part of this. embracing the energy revolution rather than trying to push it away as this administration has done. there are high-wage jobs galore in the energy sector and we are not hitting it on all cylinders if you will on that.
discipline to washington, d.c. is a key element for , high-sustained economic growth. cause the uncertainty that comes with the budget deficits that we have, and the debt that' s growing, will destroy economic activity. adam: we' ll hear from more of the candidates in our next half hour. and read more on where all the candidates stand on these and other issues at wmur.com. announcer: now, chief meteorologist mike haddad with your forecast. mike: after a messy start to the weekend, not bad this sunday. there is still a lack of ice on the big lake and looks to continue tonight and tomorrow as temperatures will be falling but not that much. we have snow showers and squalls that will begin after midnight. in advance of those, there could be flurries this evening. no major issues on the roads until monday morning. roads will likely be slick due
cold stretch will follow and windy, especially tuesday. could see gusts over 40 miles an hour adding a frigid field. it is on the way. the next storm chance after tomorrow morning not until friday night or early saturday morning. still several days to track that one. on doppler, a few flurries trying to develop. most of that is not reaching the ground. steadier snow creeping and over seven new england. another batch of snow showers to the west. the squeeze play is on through the evening. little will accumulate. the steadiest snow slides to our south. a better shot through the morning commute when we get the bulk of the snow showers and quit kidding squalls the mesh quick hitting -- quick hitting squalls. that is right around the norm
overnight with clouds, we will not see a big temperature fall so not that cold for this time of year, especially by nighttime standards. changes coming beyond the snow showers tomorrow morning as one system moves east. this one clearly catches up to us tomorrow morning through lunchtime. after that, you will notice snow showers linger north while it clears out in southern new hampshire. tonight and early tomorrow morning, snow showers and squalls. notice the deep blue off the east coast arching back through the lakes region. if anyone of those hits you, you are talking about a quick it of snow and whiteout conditions. about half an hour later, you' re into partial sunshine. tomorrow afternoon into early tuesday, more snow showers up north. we will see complete clearing statewide tuesday into wednesday
snow accumulations, tough to call where the squalls hit so it is a generalized one to three inches across the state to additional snow up north. tomorrow morning, there could be an isolated spot that gets close to four inches of snow. tonight, a few flurries early. not talking about anything widespread three good part of the evening. after 11:00 tonight, some showers will become more widespread. especially overnight is when squalls may develop after midnight and most likely during the earlier part of tomorrow morning. temperatures fall about 12 to 16 up north and between 17 and 23 elsewhere. tomorrow, snow showers and squalls in the morning. lingering flakes up north. windy and frigid tuesday. on wednesday even though we get
30 with flurries early thursday. friday night and saturday the next window of opportunity for another storm. if that holds, a good part of new hampshire will not crack the freezing mark all week. adam: it is about time i guess. stephanie: overnight monday into tuesday, seven degrees overnight? mike: you have wind chill to talk about, as if you need that. adam: jason king, all eyes on denver now. jason: patriots keeping their eyes on the broncos and

to just 6 first half points, . next up, either the steelers at home or the broncos in denver. >> we would love to play home but home field does not matter. last week, all the teams that play home lost. we feel confident about wherever we play. we have to continue to play good football. >> not many players or teams got this opportunity. it is an honor. it don' t mean nothing unless you win. got to be ready. jason: steelers and broncos on the field as we speak in denver. they just started the second quarter. the steelers scored a touchdown toward the end of the first quarter and lead 7-6. if the steelers win, the patriots will play the afc championship game at home. hockey now, the monarchs home with the norfolk admirals.
two games exchange goals. devin mantha scores on the . but manchester responds, danick paquette just turns on one from the near boards, and it somehow sneaks thru the 5-hole, , 1-1 after one. he scores his 14th. made
it 3-1. norfolk got the next two. power-play goal tied it at 3-3. still in the second, manchester on the power play. his sixth of the year. 4-3 manchester after two. last check, they were late in the third still leading 4-3. we will let you know how it turns out tonight at 6:00. stephanie: we' re working on more for news 9 at 5:30. adam: a hampstead official in hot water regarding comments made a school meeting issuing an apology tonight.

. welcome back, i' m stephanie woods. adam: and i' m adam sexton. for a look at the depth of tonight snow and how it will impact your commute tomorrow lets check in with chief meteorologist mike haddad. mike: take a look at doppler radar. not much happening. we do see snow showers over southern new hampshire. most of that is not reaching the ground. the next few hours, we will start to see a storm down to our south and east moving out to see while showers and squalls to the west approach. i would say the best timeline on those through the heart of the morning commute. notice temperatures now lining up in the low to mid 20' s across the north country. and right around 30 elsewhere. we are already subfreezing. even though not much falls for the evening and the road should be fine, we could see scattered
overnight into tomorrow morning, notice the dark blue. they indicate potential for snow squalls. any one of those could lower visibility under one quarter of a mile for about half an hour and drop an inch or two of snow. that is in the cards. this is not a blockbuster snowstorm, but it could be tricky during that stretch. in terms of accumulation, at least a couple of inches in spots by morning. what about the rest of the week? we will look at that straight ahead. adam: thank you. new developments tonight in a controversial comments made. he is apologizing. the comments were about shooting schoolchildren while discussing school safety. in his apology letter, he said i used excessively graphic language and i apologize. he has been banned from schools,

stephanie: in "escape outside," it' s hard to fathom this price but in the early 1970' s a snowmobile would set you back about $1000. gas was $.35 a gallon. the sleds were sleek, fast, and colorful. if you have a vintage sled and would like to take it out for a spin, here' s your chance. the great north woods vintage race series begins this week. the first race starts in

27 in lincoln. even though it will cool down more tonight, it will not be that cold. certainly below freezing. another sign of cold air coming in, even colder than we are now, that front to the west. you can see it around buffalo approaching watertown, new york. that is a line of showers and squalls that will benefit -- have an impact statewide for new hampshire and bring in colder air behind it. we will talk about the extended outlook in a few minutes. adam: coming up, we asked candidates about a big topic on the minds of new hampshire voters -- jobs. their thoughts ahead in our 11 question series. plus, remembering dr. martin luther king jr. the impact he had on one keene man now considered a civil

4:38. we had a sunset as early as 4:11 in december. we have seen a gain already. on radar, quite a few changes. it is quiet now. most of what you see over southern new hampshire not reaching the ground. there could be flurries south of tonight. a storm to our south continues to move east. that means most of the snow from this system tries to move away. at the same time, this front to the west will swing through with scattered snow showers around 11:00. then they become more widespread. as the front moves in, it may capture moisture and throw it back at new hampshire. a general light snowfall. there could be scattered snow squalls beginning early tomorrow
temperatures close to 30 degrees over towards the coast. a little cooler any monadnock region around 28 or 29. coolest in the higher terrain. upper 20' s in the upper valley. similar temperatures through the lakes region. all of these temperatures running very close to the norm for this time of year. overnight tonight with cloud cover moving in, we will not see a big temperature fall. i' m going with mid-to-upper teens north. southern new hampshire in the low to mid 20' s. not that cold. but it will be the warmest between now and early wednesday morning as frigid air builds in behind this arctic front to our west. looks storming out. most of the heavy snow moves offshore.
to create slick road conditions. scattered showers early. snow becomes more widespread overnight into tomorrow morning through the morning commute. notice this band
of heavy snow offshore. a piece of that may get captured and work toward the coast. one-three inches will fall but we could see higher amounts at the coast and across the mountains where the terrain brings out moisture about 3000 feet. one to three between now and midnight tomorrow. not tons of snow but enough to make it tricky on the roadways. flurries early this evening. later tonight, more snow showers. overnight, steadier snow with squalls and cold air behind it. the winds pick up tomorrow afternoon. could gust over 40 on tuesday.
gradually, it will feel better midweek as we track another storm. stephanie: it is like a ferocious winter weather week ahead of us. mike: we dodged that a good part of the season. payback now. adam: back to normal. stephanie: the squalls on monday, any danger? mike: i don' t think so. we will dodge a few. squalls are interesting. they move through. half an hour later, they are gone. they hit you hard and then move out. stephanie: now to commitment 2016, and we continue with our series of questions for the presidential candidates. adam tonight we ask, what would : your administration do to create jobs in this country? dr. carson well, this country : has the most dynamic economic-engine the world has ever known. the problem is it cannot function when it' s completely
regulations. so i would look at each one of these regulations, again, looking at the costs versus benefit. and if the benefit is not greater than the cost, we' re gonna get rid of it or modify it very substantially. that' s going to help to free up that economic-engine. also, i would revamp the tax policy. we have a 75,000 to 80,000 page tax code, which is absolutely absurd. and in order for that economic engine to work, you have to create an atmosphere that encourages entrepreneurial risk taking and capital investment. we do not have that. chris christie well, we would : change this tax code to create jobs. this tax code is like a wet blanket on the economy because the public perceives, josh, that the taxes have been rigged for the rich. the reason that they think it
, and what we would do is get rid of all of the deductions, get rid of all the special interest loopholes, except for two, the home mortgage interest deduction and the charitable contributions deductions. that' s what real citizens use every day. helps them buy a home, helps them support the charities in their community that are doing great work. we want to continue to encourage that, but we want everything else goes, we lower the rates down to 28% on the high end, where it was when ronald reagan was president in 1986, and 8% on the low end, make sure that people can do their taxes in 15 minutes. we' ll be able to fire a lot of i.r.s. agency for we do that and people will be able to feel once of their own money and spend it the way they want to spend it, that going to help to create jobs and economic activity in this country like it did when in the mid 1980' s. ted cruz every time we pursue : tax reform and regulatory reform, everytime we get the federal government off the backs of small businesses and job creators we see incredible we saw it in the 1920' calvin coolidge. we saw it in the 1960' j.f.k. we saw it in the 1980' ronald reagan. as president, i will lead the
obamacare; to lift the regulators of the back of small businesses and to pass fundamental tax reform, a simple flat tax. for individuals, 10%. you can fill your taxes out on a postcard and we can abolish the i.r.s. that is going to unleash small businesses, job creators, we' re going to have million, of new jobs, of high paying jobs. american jobs. blue collar, american jobs. we can turn the economy around, if we just end the era of big government and get back to the free market principles that we know work and that built america. carly fiorina: for the first time in u.s. history we are now , destroying more small businesses than we are creating. small and new businesses create this country. they employ half the people and businesses. it is why we have more people
looking for work. than has been the case since the 1970' s. we need to simplify the tax code so from 73,000 pages down to 3., by the way there' s been a plan for a three-page tax code for 20 years. we need to roll back the crushing load of regulation and we need to encourage capital to flow to entrepreneurs today; it' s not. it' s going big companies through big wall street banks and the community banks that used to be the helping hand for entrepreneurs and family owned businesses. those community banks are going out of business, 1500 and 90 of them since dodd-frank was passed. big complicated government favors the big, the powerful, the wealthy, and the well-connected, and crushes the small and the powerless, but jobs are created by entrepreneurs. stephanie: we' ll hear from candidates regarding how they break down the political wall that divides the parties tomorrow at 5:00. adam: a look back in history now, as tomorrow public observances will be held
luther king junior day, fifty years ago jonathan daniels of keene was inspired by dr. kings words and call for clergy to become more actively involved in the civil rights movement. he traveled to alabama in an effort to assist with voter registration. it was there in 1965 that he made the ultimate sacrifice. when a local white man leveled a shotgun at a black teenage girl , daniels at age 27 became a human shield stepping in front of her to take the fatal shot himself. intended victim ruby sales was 17 at the time. she is now in her late 60' s and says that moment will forever be etched in her mind. >> i heard a shot, and it was jonathan. he shot jonathan. jonathan never made a sound. i think he was dead instantly. the collective grief of losing jonathan, bound us together in the county. and instead of retreating because of that, people were
forward. adam sales traveled to new : hampshire earlier this year to honor reverend daniels on the 50th anniversary of his murder. in response to his death in 1965, dr. king called it bestial and said that few people in our time will know such fulfillment or meaning though they lived to be 100. stephanie: to mark in ok day governor maggie hassan and , -- to mark in ok day, governor maggie hassan and senator kelly ayotte will speak at the annual keeping the dream alive event. it' s organized and hosted by the -- . more on this special day full of visitors from all over the world coming up. adam: a child falls from a
