5:03 pm
>> i haven't heard a commitment from legislative leadership for a special session. and we're running out of time. so that's why i'm calling for it today. it does take willing partners, we want to make sure a special session is productive. >> the governor certainly has the ability to call for a special session. but i think what's really most important is that we do this in a coordinated, comprehensive, well thought out way so we don't make any mistakes, so that we solve the problem and we don't have to come back and correct it. report both sides do support treating the prescription drug fentanyl the same as heroin when it comes to penalties for sell it. but the governor wanted to use an emergency rules process for changing guidelines for prescribing opioids, and republican leaders don't agree. josh: commitment 2016 now, and hillary clinton is back in new hampshire for a two-day trip. today the white house hopeful

josh: welcome back. the house is set to approve a bipartisan budget deal.
5:16 pm
congressional leaders struck the deal with president obama after several weeks of negotiations. the agreement would authorize the government to borrow to pay bills and would set spending limits for defense and domestic issues over the next two years. disgraced former house speaker dennis hastert pleaded guilty today. jean: he was accused of illegally structuring banking transactionings to send hush money to cover up alleged sexual abuse. reporter: this morning as dennis hastert entered the federal court building in chicago to plead guilty to a felony banking charge, he was accompanied by us marshals. it was a scene so far divorced from the family values image once portrayed by the republican congressman, who was send in line to the presidency as speaker of the house. it started when hastert was a high school teacher and wrestling coach, it was there, it is alleged, that he preyed on
5:17 pm
>> these boys were 14, 15, 16 years old. reporter: she told abc news her late brother, steven rhinebolt was one of hastert's victims. >> she of he just looked at he and said it was with with dennis hastert, and i was stunned. reporter: authorities say a few years ago hastert began to pay another one of his victims more than a million dollars in hush money. when his bank asked him about the large withdrawals, hastert began taking money out in smaller amounts to avoid the scrutiny. that's the felony charge the former speaker pled guilty to today, illegally structuring banking transactions to avoid reporting requirements. the judge has accepted the plea deal and sentencing will happen in february. hastert will remain free until sentencing. and by pleading guilty he avoids the drama of a court trial in which details of more serious offenses would likely come out. josh: a sheriff in south
5:18 pm
resource officer that was caught on camera flipping a teenager out of a desk. today the sheriff said the maneuver used to the student was not based on training or acceptable procedure, he went onto say that the student posed no danger to anyone. she was arrested though on a charge of disturbing schools. jean: fighter jets were sent to keep track of a military blimp that broke loose from its moorings today. the aircraft drifted away from the aberdeen proving ground in maryland this afternoon and drifted over central pennsylvania. the tether trailing below the blimp snapped several power lines, causing blackouts to tens of thousands of people. it finally drifted down more than 150 miles from its starting point. hayley: well, today we had the rain moving in all day long, it was kind of gloomy, then all of a sudden the rain started and it's falling hard in a lot of spots at this time.
5:19 pm
take a look at the web cameras, you can see the dark skies in moultonborough, same thing in littleton and dublin. temperatures in the 40's or low 50's across the state at this hour. here's the latest on the radar. you can see the very heavy rainfall coming down now with pockets, especially up in coos county. look at that red and orange band moving up through colebrook, lancaster and now into pittsburgh and eventually that will move into northern maine. then there are pockets along 89 or 93, where you see the darker shades of green, oriole low, right along 89 there at the split with 202, that's where you get some of those downpours that can be blinding rain as you're trying to drive home from work. so be very careful of that if you do have plans to head out this evening. you'll have low vis ultimate and big puddles on the roads because of all this heavy rain coming down. this is a huge system.
5:20 pm
we'll call it a monster system. it is big, look at how many communities are being impacted. and it continuing to move up toward us, so this is really just the leading end that we're seeing right now. a couple things coming along with this system, wind and also some really warm air pumping in from the south. in fact, tomorrow it's going to feel almost like an early september day with temperatures that are going to be warm and almost a little more humid, too. state. 50 in manchester and portsmouth. 48 in rochester. most of of the temperatures you see here right now will actually be our low temperatures that we reach tonight. and we continue to go up there the overnight hours as this warm air surges in. the wind are cranking, right out of the southeast at this point. 8 miles per hour at the moment in concord. but overnight there will likely be gusts up near 30, 40, possibly even 50 miles per hour at the seacoast. especially during the overnight hours and early on thursday morning. so at the coast there are some concerns.
5:21 pm
there's a coastal flood watch that has been posted, especially at high tide which will happen right before 1:00 a.m. where astronomically at a high tide point, so splashover is likely. at the coastline winds out of the southwest 20 to 30 miles per hour and gusts near 50 as this storm rolls on through. here's the latest on future cast. so this is 8:00 tonight. you see the heavier bands starting to move in, there could be some embedded thunderstorms here. this is 7:00 a.m., it's going to be wet at the bus stop tomorrow morning and wet for the commute in to work. but then things get lighter about noontime, you might start to see the sun poking through. we're not completely done with rain, there will be a splattering of scattered showers, but we'll clear out on thursday night into friday. how much rain are we looking at? upwards of one to two inches of rainfall which is actually still needed, if you can believe that, especially at the seacoast.
5:22 pm
tonight heavy rain, gusty winds, temperatures actually go up and the wind continue to be breezy. thursday, tomorrow, we'll have wind out of the southwest between 10 to 20 miles per hour, even some gusts up near 30. and look at those temperatures. 70's, even mid 70's in some spots. it's going to be warm. then cooling back down on friday. saturday for halloween in the 50's with sunshine, and then on sunday a few scattered showers with temperatures in the 50's. josh: good. jean: thanks, haley. coming up at 5:30, an unusual investigation at one school, a boy accused of dumping hot soup onto another student's tt2watv# 1$! bm@qrhd tt4watv# 1$!" dztq 5gt tt4watv# 1$!" entq ec4 tt4watv# 1$!" gzt& \dl

jean: a 19-year-old sleep walker was found nine miles from her colorado home. josh: investigators believe that taylor gamel walked most of the way before getting onto a bus to her uncle's house, all of this while she was asleep. her father notified the police as soon as he noticed she was missing and says this isn't the first time it happened. blast year she woke up in a nearby park. >> she just starts walking and i don't think she knows where she's going or what she's doing, which makes it even scarier. josh: taylor is safe at home now and they say they are setting their door alarm to prevent this from happening again. some people grow out of sleep
5:25 pm
experts say 4 to 5% of american adults are sleep walkers. but nasa astronaut scott kelly was very much awake when he took his first space walk today to tackle a long list of chores outside the international space station. jean: that included working on a robotic arm and routing cable for a future docking port. early thursday morning kelly will break the u.s. record for nasa's longest trip off our planet, surpassing 215 days. guess he's been pretty busy. straight ahead at 5:30, american test scores are dropping, but new hampshire students are still doing better than the national average. josh: what a game in year's world series got off to an unforgettable start. jean: now to our u local hot shot, look at this, it's a picture of last night's hunter moon, perfect for the week of halloween. submit your pictures and video, join newses of u local members by logging onto u

people want change, they want reform, they want to see something done, but just carping about it and whining about it and making speeches about it doesn't get it done. nobody has shaken up the system more than i have. i've always been unorthodox in this and against the grain. but you know what? i know how to get it done. new day for america is responsible for the content of

5:29 pm
the southeast, it will be perfect conditions for minor flooding right at the seacoast during the overnight hours tonight. but for the rest of us it is some heavy rain passing through. even up into coos county there was a report of some small hail coming down. i wouldn't be surprised, this is very heavy rain. you see the oranges and yellow colors indicated on radar, so anywhere north of colebrook into pittsburgh, it's pouring hard. the win speeds have started to pick up a little, nothing too crazy at the moment. laconia about 15 miles per hour. 14 miles per hour in portsmouth. so here's what you can expect. this is a real october rain storm, we do tend to get these around here. and we'll have the rain, the wind and then a surge in the temperatures for the day tomorrow, in fact some of us will be talking about 70's for highs tomorrow. but a few thins to keep in mind. tonight the wind will be blowing around, so a lot of our find comes down, that leads to slippery conditions on the roads with the wet leaves, and also the halloween decorations
5:30 pm
jean: thanks, haley. a committee exploring ways to better protect new hampshire's most vulnerable children heard ideas from the state attorney general this morning. this group is expected to propose legislation to improve the way agencies like the division for children, youth and families work together with police. wmur's andy hershberger was at today's hearing and joins us live with the story. reporter: the discussion today focused primarily on information, how it should be shared and how long it should be kept. the attorney general made two key recommendations wednesday, to a commission appointed to review child abuse fatalities. joseph foster said that one problem is that law enforcement often cannot access all the records involving a child's death. >> law enforcement doesn't have access to dcyf records in circumstances where there's been a child death. they do if there's an ongoing investigation, but if a child for whatever reason perishes, law enforcement cannot automatically get access to
5:31 pm
those records and we think that's an oversight in the law. reporter: the committee is made up of lawmakers, child protective workers, domestic violence prevention experts and other professionals to help write new legislation and fix existing law designed to cheap children safe. the panel was formed in the wake of the death of 3-year-old pree pree -- brielle game last year. her mother is charged with her murder. a second recommendation is that records of all child abuse complaints both founded and unfounded should be held much longer. >> it sets the context for what our involvement could be. so i can assure thaw if there was legislation our staff would probably be cheering, yea, now we're going to have the history that we need to be able to understand the dynamics of the family. reporter: another idea discussed was whether there should be a 24-7 response team available through dcyf to look into allegations of abuse. currently they only handle these complaints during weekday business hours.
5:32 pm
many people agree, that suggestion needs more study. the committee chairman also suggested that the committee's life be extended into 2017 because of all the remaining ground that he feels they need to cover. live in the newsroom, andy hershberger, wmur news 9. josh: a disappointing report card for u.s. students, the 2015 national report shows that for the first time in 25 years math scores for american students have fallen based on assessment tests taken nationwide. here in new hampshire scores dropped by four points from 4th graders, two points for 8th greaters, but scores were still pier the top when compared to other states. jean: a high schooler in tyngsboro, massachusetts may face criminal charges after police say he poured hot soup over a girl's head. investigators say the incident happened in a school hallway, the girl's family says she suffered second degree burns. the 15-year-old boy has been suspended. he may also be charged with
5:33 pm
dangerous weapon. a massachusetts man is fighting a 48,000-dollar towing bill. he called for help when his jeep got stuck in the mud while off roading in walpole. it took the the towing crew and police 12 hours to free the jeep. the owner of that towing company says the bill reflects industry standards for the amount of time plus the threats posed by nearby power lines. josh: deer hunters will be heading into the woods this weekend and fish and game officials are urging everyone to be careful. muzzle loading season starts on saturday with regular firearms deer season opening on november 11. it believed that most of new hampshire's 59,000 licensed hunters will be out and about during this time. everyone, authorities want everyone to enjoy the outdoors, of course, but remind people that safety is key to having a good time. >> we encourage people to wear bright clothing if they go out in the field, starting this weekend. if hunters are going to be out in the field engaging in hunting
5:34 pm
activities we'd like to see them in a bright orange or bright red color. jean: we brought you the breaking news last night about the merger planned for rite aid and walgreens, tonight we're learning more about what it could mean for customers, that story next. josh: is motorola's new phone really shatter proof? we'll see the results of a new unscientific test. hayley: despite the rain showers and clouds that we'll have overnight tonight, the temperatures actually soar during the overnight hours and tomorrow. i'll have a full timeline of when you can expect the rain to
5:35 pm
jean: and jean: the dow picking up 198 points today to 17,779. s&p up by 24. nasdaq shot up 65 points. average gas prices, nationally 2.20. in new hampshire we're at 2.12. negotiations for a major beer merger have been extended. josh: the companies that own anheuser-busch and miller say they need more time to iron out details of their potential merger.
5:36 pm
$104 billion for miller. the combined company would be the largest beer maker on the planet. and while rite aid's takeover shouldn't have much effect op customers, some brands may be coming off the shelves. wall greens is also expected to add more clinics to what are currently rite aid locations. jean: motorola's new phone held its own against one test. a reporter tried to see if the phone really is shatter proof, after several drobs and being run over by a bicycle and the horse, the phone was dented, but still in one piece and without any cracks. that would be a fun assignment. josh: some bold plays in the first game of the world series means you get a free breakfast, that story after the break. jean: also in sports, it's been a tough week of practice for the monarchs and after two poorly played games last weekend we'll
5:37 pm
hear from the team. josh: and want to be superheros

most innovative companies are already moving to clean energy using existing technology to improve their bottom line. now we need a plan to help businesses and families across america to save money on electricity and create millions of new jobs. it all starts with 50% clean energy by 2030. so, what are we waiting for? josh: a new bridge has opened in manchester, this pedestrian bridge links two rail trails. jean: paula tracey walked the new connector for this week's escape outside. reporter: you can now go from the goffstown rail trail to the
5:40 pm
manchester piscataqua trail without stopping. the total route runs almost 8 miles between northeast delta dental stadium and goffstown's village center. the new bridge linking the two opened on monday. it was funded by a federal grant and a volunteer group called manchester moves, which raised the money to get the match. no local tax dollars were used. the trail run as long the former rail lines that shipped frustrate up until the 1980's. when you're biking or walking the trails, know that the manchester section is paved, but goffstown is a dirt surface. that end is also undergoing its own improvements with new crossing lights and parking schedule to come soon. for details on the routes and what to know before heading out yourself, go to the escape outside section of wmur.com. paula tracey, wmur news 9. hayley: how many of you saw this
5:41 pm
earlier this morning as the sun was coming up and the clouds were invading from the system moving in? it was quite the sight. i will call this a fiery sunrise, and it sure was. look at this picture from whitefield with the trees, which are bare, by the way, which is crazy to think at this time. but we are losing a lot of foliage and will with all the wind we're going to get from the system too. in this picture from christine she submitted this to the u local section of wmur.com, and this picture is from weir and it's just beautiful with the clouds starting to move in and the sun coming up. that makes for a beautiful sky, and of course sailors take warning when you see that in the morning, and that's what exactly what they would have wanted to do today because of this system moving in. heavy pockets of rain now, especially along the 93 corridor, even into southern new hampshire too. look up into coos county, where you see these shades of the red, the orange, thankfully it's moving up into maine at this point, but that is some heavy rain just north of colebrook at
5:42 pm
but travel along the 95 route 1 corridors probably a bit slow because of reduced visibility. though it's mainly light to moderate rainfall from portsmouth to hampton and into the merrimack valley. 93, salem, derry and manchester again light to moderate rainfall, looks like by his where some heavier rain. there are pockets where the rain all of a sudden picks up. lincoln, woodstock and even if you're traveling up into northern grafton county, that's where we're seeing the rain beginning to pick up as well with pockets of embedded downpours. look at how big this system is. all the way back toward the da could the thats, there's -- the dakotas, there's snow on the back side of that it going to move up toward the north and east and bringing with it actually warm air for us. tomorrow a lot of us headed for the 70's, if you can believe that. temperatures overnight basically
5:43 pm
