removing remnants of the blimp from the trees. the $170 million blimp is part of an army program that's been in the planning stages for over a decade. it just began flying about two years ago. >> the decision to suspend horse and harness racing in pennsylvania until next friday. so many were concerned the state was originally set to shut down racing yesterday because of a lack of money. six pennsylvania track offers thoroughbred or horse racing. >> allow judges, here's the one i think is very interesting. moms who breast feed and -- this law will take effect early next year. >> coming up, a social media

wait, where's the... i can't remember... and a place to grow it in. got it. atlantic county didn't allow its elected politicians to take large donations from contractors doing business with the county. then will pauls changed the law, allowing him to pocket thousands of dollars in campaign cash. now pauls is taking thousands from those who want to move casinos to north jersey, threatening our jobs and our local economy. and he said he wants the vote to allow north jersey casinos "this year." we just can't trust will pauls.
welcome back to fox 29 weekend. in our cover story this morning, a video that shocked most of the country. spring valley high school resource officer ben fields was caught on this cell phone video slamming a teen out of her desk when she refused his instructions. the deputy was called to the classroom because the teen was being disruptive and the video led to a huge social media debate about proper discipline in schools. the comments were obviously strong on both sides. i see the trend. any time one ignores the trivial instructions of a authority figure, expert to have the full weight of infrastructure dropped on you. deechers don't get paid enough to deal with children like this. no one has said what a better solution for removing a non-compliant child should be. good morning, to both of you. >> good morning. >> guys, we hear every time
something like this happens, you hear about kind of that debate between the need to comply and what crosses the line into abuse. and kentucky, let's start with you. is there that line, compliance versus abuse? >> there is. let's take a look at what exactly happened here, though. the teacher asked this young woman to pult away her cell phone, which she didn't do. he asked her to leave the classroom. when she didn't do that, he called an administrative assistant from the school to ask her to do the same thing and she again refused again. they then called in the resource officer who supposedly called her three or four times. at that point he had the law to arrest her because there's a law called disturbing schools which is a miss demain -- misdemeanor. but what he did was excessive force by flipping her over in that chair he could have caused
her serious bodily injury. we had the issue of freddie gray down in baltimore where police threw him into the police van and as a result he died. those six officers are being prosecuted. so officer fields could have been prosecuted had anything serious happened to this woman. >> you work with this whole issue of how to interact with the police. maybe legally he had the right to arrest her but i'm sure you don't think that was the best way to handle the situation. >> it certainly wasn't the best way. what we're learning at is the school to prison pipeline that engages in corp. rap punishment. what we should have had was a school social worker, be brief with the young lady. also there should have been someone there to say listen, maybe she's using her phone because she just got threatened or maybe she spoke to the teacher. when we see these teachers
against the back drop of dylann roof, so the young lady sees the police officer comes in, i can't image what she was going through, now we're seeing sympathy and empathy on all sides of the color line as the narrative comes forward as it relates to she's in foster care. no one should have to experience this behavior that this officer engaged in. why is it we don't rely on trusted adult. kentucky is absolutely right in one sense that they had several administrators come into the classroom but i have yet to hear that a social worker who knows how to deal with these challenges of students being non-compliant we never heard that there was a social worker. >> there was a protest, several hundred students came out in support of the officer, implying that the school itself wasn't
safe and the officer kept them safe. does that need to be introduced into this discussion when you're talking about the environment they were dealing in? >> they were also other narratives they called him officer slam. he has a history of slamming other students. remember, it's their matters of interpretation. some students may see him as aggressive, others may see him as an individual that was friendly, created a safe environment if the classroom, what we know, not because of this visual, is that the school-to-prison pipeline targets minority youth, corporal punishment targets minority youth. we shouldn't see it with young people. she's a teen. the chair served as a metaphor for her because she felt safe and she probably looked at this and said listen, i'm in some anotherus trouble. the cop is in the classroom and he allows her not to get out the chair. >> how he was viewed, does that matter? >> it doesn't matter legally.
i think what police have to learn by this situation, and all these situations around the country, is that police have to learn to deescalate situations, not escalate situations. in this situation he obviously escalated it and it resulted in what it resulted in. i agree with chad. lots of things that should have been done weren't done. >> i miss you kentucky. wish you were in studio. enjoy your saturday. >> miss you too. >> there's not a lot of agreement on social media. you can tell us what you think. go to our facebook page, jump in on the discussion or you can tweet us just make sure you use our hashtag #fox29weekend. >> we have so many events happening on our halloween weekend. can you hear the gin blossoms playing? we've got the rock and roll marathon going on.
it looks gorgeous. >> we might want to say that's deceptive sunshine. there's a chill in the air when you step outside. a lot of events happening. it's a bye week. >> we need to know one thing, how the weather is going to be for tonight's game, my brother. tell me something good. >> change of wardrobe there. he's a temple fan now. >> cold start, 20s and 30s. we had that quick chill last night. we may not get that tonight. we have clouds coming in. around kickoff 51 degrees, only dropping to about 49 by about 11:00 or so. so not that quick drop in temperatures because of clouds coming in. chicago, st. louis, memphis down in texas, a lot of rain there,
it is slow sli working its way in. out ahead of that we have that warm southwest wind and very heavy rain there in texas. so a lot happening the next two days. high pressure today, that warmer air with the clouds tomorrow and monday, could see some rain trying to work its way in from the south. let's go ahead and show you what to expect here hour by hour. we'll increase the clouds throughout the afternoon. these are high, thin clouds coming in. there it is by 11:00, enough clouds with some warmer air in to keep that temperature from dropping too much overnight. those numbers are coming up a little bit later. >> good morning, i'm dr. mike. the united states preventive services task force has now recommended that we as health care providers test those folks who are overweight or obese for their blood sugars. about 30% of people with elevated blood sugars will
develop diabetes. so when you go to your health care provider, get your blood sugar tested. in what could be a major breakthrough, researchers at ucla have discovered a molecule that actually allows nerve cells to regrow. this is important in people who have had a stroke who are debilitated. it may allow their brains to repair and get them back to a great life. the centers for disease control have come out and said hey, we're not doing a good enough job in getting our young boys to get the hpv vaccine. kids that grow up can have throat cancer and other cancers that are in males as well as females. if you're out there, get your kid vaccinated. i'm dr. mike. have a great weekend. >> just got my kids vaccinated and got my own self vaccinated.
you want to hear something good? i mean really, really good? >> these volunteers, they are knocking the socks off of south jersey. they're playing their passion and we'll tell you more about it coming up. >> plus also, it is the daytime to set those clocks back. you know the expression you fall back to get an extra hour of sleep. we love that on the morning show but it is not good news for everyone.
cookies or almonds. yumminess. hershey's is mine, yours, our chocolate. >> welcome back. getting ready for the big temple game tonight. when you have a conversation with us you really feel like you're family. let's take a picture of one of our halloween celebrations. happy halloween to her friends at fox 29. our viewer jessica wants to be on tv. how cute is that picture?
thank you for sound -- sending those in. now it's time for tech tank. >> this is your tech bite from the tech tank. our camera phones, boy do we love them. 10 megapixel. who would have ever thought it would get to this level of innovation? guess what? it's gotten even better. what the 16 stands for is 16 lenses. we're not joking here. 16 camera lenses on a device this size. this will give you the best when i tell you the best photographer-like experience but it will come with a price tag. you can preorder now for $1,199 and it won't ship until summer of 2016. at best. but if you want the ultimate in camera experience, with the size
>> it sounds like a personal issue. >> it was mischief night and there's a delaware county town trying to keep the mischief out of this whole halloween weekend. >> this video of the township approaching a curfew. they say that the halloween curfew ordinance has been on the books for more than two decades and has reduced crime and offenses over the years. the ordinance states that children under 18 must be off the streets by 9:00 p.m. until sunrise over each night halloween weekend. it went into effect last night and goes through sunday. the only exception is children can be out if they've got a parent with them. residents got mixed reviews. >> the entire weekend? it's halloween. 9:00 is a little early to me. >> our principal at the end day everyone make sure you're in by
9:00 because of mischief night. >> that teen said her school made an announcement. if children are caught out past 9:00 police will just take them home. there are no fines associated with this ordinance. >> a queens village woman who was robbed and it all happened in the middle of the day. she said she was targeted because she's in a wheelchair. she was on her way to a rehab appointment. all of a sudden a guy comes up behind her, steals her iphone. she wasn't able to chase the guy, there were no witnesses, she's got a message for that guy who targeted her. >> i don't know if any message would get through people like that. i think those people would just take advantage of anyone. those are bullies. and those are people who are going to -- you know, but what
goes around comes around. >> that iphone was tracked to north philadelphia 20 minutes after the robbery. it has since been turned off. police are looking at some nearby surveillance videos. >> let's take a look at your weather today. a lot going on in the city. we've got the rock and roll marathon, we've got celebration right up the street from us and we've got a look at trenton, new jersey. is that the trenton makes bridge? i was up that way and the leaves were off the chart gorgeous this week. >> calhoun street bridge. >> it looks good there. is it going to stay like that? >> as far as the sunshine goes we have it now but a lot of those leaves are coming down and if we have some rain in the forecast, watch the roadways they get a little slick. a lot of runs happening today. >> hi dave. today we'll be hosting a 5 k
one-mile walk. we are expecting over 700 participants. will the weather help our runners? >> the weather will probably help the runners, the perfect temperature for it, we're in the 40s, climbing into the mid 50s by 4:00 this afternoon. look at the clouds increasing though. that will keep the temperature from dropping. not that quick chill we had last night. we get much warmer in the 7-day. >> thank you, dave. fox 29, we are taking you in focus. the fill harmonic of southern new jersey has been making beautiful music for nearly 25 years. as photo journalist bill roher
shows us, there's one man who keeps every note intact. >> reporter: i can't imagine how difficult it must be. keeping a 90-member orchestra in perfect synch. above all else, it's the conductor's job to keep everybody else playing together here in just his second year he has brought this all-volunteer orchestra to improved heights. >> matthew is hugely entertaining and very dynamic. >> matthew is fine tuning this orchestra for their 25th anniversary gala.
it's been used in countless movies and tv and the opening music is instantly recognizable. >> when you get harmonies that all of a sudden line up or are in perfect pitch, the textures of the rhythm are just right, it's really amazing. >> performing music this large takes time and practice. this group of seasoned musicians will be here until they get it just right. >> all right. the orchestra's gala is tomorrow
november 1st at the eastern center for the performing arts that's in voorhees and tickets are still available. >> we know halloween can be a lot of fun but it can also be a little problem right here. >> one of the problems it's a hall day full of temptation. coming up, some tips to help you avoid that temptation. >> you know what one of the problems we're going to talk about? >> people that are candy pushers? >> we've got an extra of sleep tonight. always nice when you host a morning show. not good news for everybody. who does not benefit when we change those clocks?

so, when chris brown and will pauls would recklessly deny access to basic health services like mammograms and annual exams, it makes a real difference in women's lives. chris brown voted against funding for cancer screenings. and will pauls opposed funding for clinics that provide access to mammograms - life-saving procedures women rely on. chris brown and will pauls:
we're going to get an extra hour of sleep. >> it is like perfect timing with all the parties, you get to fall back. so set your clock back an hour. doctors say changing the clocks can really mess with our bodies. >> so basically it really depends on their rhythms to begin with. some people who prefer to sleep in are going to like this. some people who are early risers are not necessarily going to like it as much. the -- for most people this will be a good thing. people that have fragile circadian rhythms will find this disruptive, not as badly as the spring one. >> that's my problem. fragile circadian rhythms. clocks will go forward on march 13th. >> what are we looking at? the rock and roll marathon. if you ever see me running, you
should run too, because somebody is chasing me. i don't run. >> 18,000 people came into town. there's going to be a lot of bands out there. >> are you at runner at all, dave? >> i ran a half marathon once. >> good for you. >> it's more than bill and i. >> and we ask you again last year, you'll still have one more than me. >> we are talking about that time change. what i am is a golfer, and who benefits from that time change? maybe a golfer. the sun comes up an hour early tomorrow. so now the sunrise 6:30 a.m. set your clocks, make your tee times. won't have that frost around. the sunset 4:59 p.m. still cold there in pots pottstown 29. we'll see these numbers climb with the sunshine that we have.
right now it's 34 degrees in millville. a few clouds there in ventnor city. bill wants to go to cape may to see the sunset. will it be clear enough? we'll have these high clouds coming in. it will impact our weather tonight the high clouds ahead of this rain. a lot of this rain will dry up as it moves east but the clouds keep the temperatures from dropping too much and on top of that we're getting that warm wind coming in from the southwest. here it comes, the clouds will start to increase really by about 2:00 or 3:00, yale see these thin clouds coming in. if you step outside, maybe a few thin clouds but as you get the warm air coming in along with the clouds, that will keep the temperatures from dropping too much. not the case that we had last night where it quickly dropped. a lot going on tonight. trick-or-treating, temple football, only dropping into the upper 40s by tomorrow morning. a few showers passing by our
south tomorrow morning 62. here come theses numbers into the 70s. lows in the 50s and highs into the 70s four days in a row with highs well above average. >> i'm here to highlight this week 'high school athlete. this week is joshua hughes. a senior captain of the ewing blue devils. he leads the team with 11 pack cake blocks as the offensive tackle of the ewing blue devils. they are currently 4 and 3 wirning their last game -- winning their last game. >> basically my role is to keep the offensive line going. i go out to him, pick him up
right away and make sure everybody is all good. the team is my family. we spend a lot of time with each other in the weight room, they mean a lot to me. they're like family, like brothers. >> he is our rock on the offensive line. we've had some success this year running the football and throwing the football and it starts up front and when we talk about up front, we usually talk about josh hughes. the kid plays hurt, he does everything you ask him to do. he does whatever is needed for the team. >> he's a good guy. he's always there for us whenever we need him and i couldn't pick anybody else better. >> although josh plans on playing football in college, he also has other goals he dreams of accomplishing including earning his eagle scout badge. >> it's in the works now. i'm putting bat boxes in because recent disease, you could call it, affected them and killed them, they needed a new place. if i don't get a scholarship, my plan is to go into the coast
guard and do an rotc program and i'm looking to go to college for some sort of forestry or wildlife management. >> i give you a certificate that signifies you are the student athlete of the week. congratulations. >> it makes me feel proud. i know what i've done is right and i'm going to keep doing it. >> it's hard to call somebody that big a kid, but we're meeting some great kids. so if you know someone you would like to nominate as our high school athlete of the week, send us an e-mail or tweet it to us. just make sure you use our hashtag #fox29weekend so we can find your tweets. >> coming up, heaven or hospital. a sick five-year-old girl makes a very tough decision. should a child that young have to decide at all whether she
lives or dies? >> you've seen the excitement, you've seen the craziness. the undefeated owls taking on notre dame. what they need to do to keep their winning streak going. we work weekends here. because it works for our patients. here, at cancer treatment centers of america in philadelphia, we give our patients the freedom to make appointments that fit their schedules, even on weekends.

this is a winter squash, so the skin is thick so you've got to be careful as you cut them. cut them in half first so you can seed it easier. we want to scoop the seeds out. keep turning into your hands, dig into the flesh a little bit, and there you have it. you want to quarter these squash. cut them in half again. the next step i want to put a couple of score marks. it allows the seasoning to kind of bake in and give it some better flavor. take a brush, we'll baste the squash. don't be shy here. now we're going to transfer these to the cookie sheet and
when we get them in the often, again. if you have a convection oven at home it might take a short time. we're going to make the fruit and apple compote. you can use any apple. take the skin off and cut the apple in half. we want to remove the core, get the seeds out. want to cut that. add a quarter cup of dried cranberry, raisins, pecans. molasses, thyme. we're going to mix this gently so it's all mixed together nice and even. now we add the olive oil to the hot pan and we're going to scrape out the mixture into the pan. you want to cook this for about five minutes. what's going to happen is this
maple syrup is going to thicken up a little bit. this is fresh-squeezed orange juice and our bourbon. this is reducing very nicely. the squash has just come out of the oven, it's tender and beautiful. we want to scoop this compote on top of our squash. they've been in the oven for about 20 minutes, they're ready to go. let's give this a try. feel how soft that is. exquisite. this has been your fox food bite.

family's story is catching national attention. many arguing that a five-year-old can't possibly understand death. i'm sure you would expect, all sorts of comments on our fox 29 facebook page. hundreds of you told us what you thought about this. marilyn wrote when a very young child has a terrible disease and is faced with their own mortality, they absolutely understand what death and heaven is. don't underestimate their ability to be human. but mandy disagrees. she said, are you kidding me? this is not okay to ask a four-year-old that's not the same as asking an adult. if you could have even an extra month with your child why won a parent do everything they could what if she suffers and has painful death at home? at least a hospital would make her comfortable. i'm just shock. and finally, from janay, i have to say that would be a really hard decision. no parent wants to see their child dye. but if the child has little to no quality of life how do you prolong their agony just to keep your child around? there are so many ethical
questions surrounding this and so we asked dr. nora jones a bioethist is the lewis katz school of medicine at temple university to join us. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> the immediate question that everybody is bouncing around, you have a five-year-old, four-year-old at the time, do they even have the capacity to understand the decision that they're being asked to make? >> i think it depends on what type of five-year-old we're talking about. in general, a healthy, five-year-old would not have the legal or probably mental capacity to make that decision. but this is a girl who for her entire life has been in and out of hospitals. she knows she has terminal illness. she has seen her friends come and go in the hospital. so i think to one of your comments you read earlier, the idea that these kids who have such experience with health care system, they know more than probably you and i do about how they think about death and their comfort level with it.
>> don't they -- that raises an interesting point, and again, our thoughts and prayers. nobody wants to question the parents's decision but they also know more about the pain they're in and couldn't that be influencing a five-year-old's decision? i just don't want to be in pain any more. >> sure. definitely. and the mother has written very eloquently in her blogs about the years of conversations she's had with her daughter and how her daughter experiences these hospital visits and the mother has also had years of conversations with her health care team and it sounds to me like they've reach the point where the potential benefits of further intervention are no longer out weighing the costs of living the remainder of her life in this pain. >> from an ethical standpoint, and you talked about her health care team, you talked about her parents, do the doctors have any responsibility to intervene and continue to fight to provide treatment for this child? >> sure. physicians do have that duty to
minors if they feel that the parents are making a decision that is not in their best interest. in this case, it sounds like the medical team, the parents and the daughter all agree. if the medical team based on all available evidence did think that there were further treatments that would extend her life a little bit longer, then if possible the question could be taken out of the parent's hands to the hospital and to the court in a guardianship. so it does not sound like that's the case here. >> this is a tough one. thank you for spending time with us. thank you. sure. >> this is one we'll continue to explore. so many comments on our fox 29 facebook page. we would love to hear from you. you can leave your comments there and tweet us at fox 29 philly. use our #fox29weekend and again our thoughts and prayers go out to that little girl and her parents. it is exactly 9:16. let's take a live look outside right now. we're taking a live look at wilmington, delaware. super fun thing to do with the

maybe getting a little cooler in the suburbs. but we have a ways to go before we get there. still pretty cold in a few of these suburbs north and west. mount pocono at 33. it's up to 43 degrees now in millville. philadelphia at 46. now into the 50s but not much of a drop tonight for the temple game or trick or treating. 51 down to 49. that's thanks to the clouds increasing somebody warmer air trying to work its way in. we'll keep an eye on this rain. it's in chicago right now. you'll see it slowly try to push east. cold weather was in place yesterday with that breeze. high pressure right over us today. there's the weather tomorrow. monday we'll watch an area of low pressure maybe passing by to our south trying to push a little moisture up our way. that's the one chance of rain that we have. the clouds will increase this afternoon. these are high, thin clouds tonight. and this keeps the temperatures from dropping too much. and then they only go up from that in the seven day forecast we're talking about 70s for a few days. those numbers are coming up later.
