5:13 pm
so concord high school students were acting on that advice, putting their dreams on stars that mcauliffe wanted to reach reminder. >> she was a regular person, not a saint. she was a really, really good teacher. jennifer: that was our ray brewer reporting. an emotional ceremony was also held at the kennedy space center in florida. josh: in attendance were mcauliffe's son scott and his two sons, and the crowd also included dozens of teachers who competed for that spot on the mission. the woman who train forward the backup says she never let it distract her. >> up through the last day she made time in crew quarters here to write college recommendation force some of her students. at a time when many people would think only of the impending launch, christa was taking care of aa teacher's business. josh: mcauliffe's husband steven declined to be interviewed but

5:15 pm
start the day, seasonably so, nice recovery back into the upper 30's and lower 40's in many spots. here's the almanac data for concord today. notice the official high coming in 10 above the average. even though it was chilly, that's nowhere close to the record low on this date in 1904. the earliest sunset we had ended december 15th at 4:11, now close to 5:00 in the afternoon. nice to see the daylight hours of course stretching out as we go further into the winter season. few clouds and a couple of isolated flurries drifting through the great north woods and parts of the white mountains. give it a 5 or 10% shot of a flurry up north for tonight. during tomorrow the forecast does get a little bit more interesting, because we're not going to see a lot of precipitation. but is there a strong upper level disturbance back in the great lakes and a lot of mayor off shore of the carolinas.
5:16 pm
create quite a big storm off shore and far enough away from new hampshire so we don't get much in the way of precipitation. having said that, tomorrow morning boo the early afternoon a little piece of energy from this storm will get drawn back in as this disturbance races in our direction and could trigger some snow showers. so flakes in some parts of the state tomorrow, not a big accumulation though. 30's across the board, about six, seven, eight degrees above the norm for this time of year. teens north by morning. 20's south. well above the average and that's courtesy of a cloud cover south. you'll notice no big cooldown back to the west. as a matter of fact, temperatures are climbing after a brief cooldown the next two days, back into the mid to upper 40's, even to 50's the parts of the northern rockies. and can't rule out a trur hitting near 50 by the early part of next week. here's that disturbance from the west, will trigger an ocean storm off to the east, and a little piece of that energy will trigger some snow showers over
5:17 pm
you'll notice for the morning commute not too much happening. but by the end of the commute, 8:30, 9:00 the clouds will lower and thicken quickly, and notice how scattered snow showers begin to develop. we could see anywhere from a trace, meaning just a few flakes, to up to an inch in a couple of spots as temperatures will be lower tomorrow, in the 30's. back into sun early saturday before clouds race in, and there could be a few flurries up north on saturday afternoon. beyond that temperatures climb yet again from this mild stretch. seems like we've been dealing with mild weather on and off all winter. we've got one tomorrow, mid to upper 30's, again best chance of snow showers will be from late morning on. roads should be in fine shape with temperatures above freezing but can't rule out a couple of slick spots, back roads, morning on. the weekend looking pretty good, mild by sunday and maybe up near 50 early next week. josh: thanks, mike. up next, presidential candidates

5:20 pm
and t.v. spokesperson. that's my line. i got it. all the things you like, from the middle of anywhere. that is my line! josh: we asked the presidential thoughts on the federal government's role in public >> the federal government plays
5:21 pm
education, not only making sure that there's adequate funding, especially for the nutrition programs that are important to the learning experience for poor kids, but also the federal government in the past always played a big role in making college affordable for american families. so in order to make college oh forwardable again, instead of saddling our kid with a mountain of debt, in order to improve public education, our federal government needs to step up and keep pace with the investments required in this modern economy. it's not only about holding up best practices, not only about encouraging important standards and that no child is left behind, it's actually by improving educational outcomes and making college more affordable. and that's what i bend to do as president. >> we live in a very competitive global economy. and unless we have the best
5:22 pm
world, our economy is not going to be strong now and in the future. and that is why i believe that we must make public colleges and universities in this country tuition-free so that all of our young people, regardless of the income of their families, will be able to get a higher education, and will also be able to lower student debt which is now a very serious problem. and i propose that we do that by imposing a tax on wall street speculation. when we cannot be effective internationally competing against countries all over the world unless we have that educated work force and that's one way to go forward. >> way than to do what i can as president to really look at the research about what works and then to work with teachers and school boards, principals and parents, everybody in a community to really understand what it is that will particularly help low income,
5:23 pm
because your daughter, my daughter, my granddaughter, they come to school pretty well prepared, and it's really up to them, are they going to do the work that they need to do to be successful. a lot of kids, they don't have those advantages, and that's why i think the federal government has to do more to help prepare more kids, with early childhood education, universal pre-k. this is a necessity if we're going to have any chance to close the achievement gap. we have to make college affordable again. i think community college should be free, it like two additional years of the education you need to have the skills to compete. and i want four-year colleges and universities to be debt-free when it comes to tuition and help people pay down their debt. and that will save them thousands of dollars and enable them to kind of get on with their lives. josh: we're going to hear from more candidates in the next half-hour. jennifer: also ahead,

half-hour with breaking news on the spread of the zika virus. health officials in massachusetts have just confirmed their first case in the bay state. the man had had traveled to one of the areas where mosquitoes have been spreading this disease, which is suspected of causing birth defects. josh: the world health organization will hold an emergency meeting on monday about the virus. the virus is spreading around the americas and that the level of alarm at this point is extremely high. we'll keep you posted on this. tonight police are saying that the man who robbed a salem convenience store may have done it before. jennifer: investigators say the cluff crossing store has been robbed twice in a week and there are a lot of similarities between the suspects. jennifer crompton is live tonight in salem with more. reporter: images from the store surveillance camera show a resemblance between the two that's hard to miss. the owner of the 7-11 here didn't want to do an on camera
5:27 pm
me his concern that if this robber struck twice and succeeded he could try again. this is the man police say robbed the 7-11 on cluff crossing road last thursday morning. and this is the suspect they belief hit the store again, late wednesday night, one week later. >> what limited facial features we can see, it does appear that it is the same individual involved in both robberies, which is rare for us to find someone hitting both stores almost on a time pattern. reporter: police believe he'd been watching the store because he struck in between customers and knew that the cashier wednesday night was a woman. even though she was hidden behind shelves when he entered. >> immediately started saying, ma'am, ma'am, walked up to her and escorted her over to the register, much like he did the week prior and started asking for money out of the register. reporter: no weapons were shown, but -- >> in both incidents he does
5:28 pm
his hand in his pocket for a while. basically insinuating that he does have a weapon or at least making the clerks believe that he is armed. reporter: no one has been hurt, yet. >> we do have concerns, obviously this is someone who is fueling some habit or addiction, we believe, to keep hitting the same place and doing it so brazenly. reporter: the suspect in both cases was seen fleeing on foot. salem police are asking anyone with information to contact them. jennifer crompton, wmur news 9. jennifer: a stretch of ocean road in portsmouth will be closed well into the evening because of a broken gas line. the first leak was discovered at lunch time and while working on that crews found several other leaks along that line. the road will stay closed for at least a few more hours. and court street in concord should reopen in the next hour, after a water main break there. the damage closed down merrimack superior court, although the

5:30 pm
reporter: after 31 years at southwestern new hampshire district fire mutual aid, friday. that's quite a run, according to philip terrell, who says most dispatchers only last an average of four years. >> i think she believes in what she does, dedicate to the the profession, because it is a profession. and i think that's what makes her great at this job. reporter: johnson says she remembers the big disasters the most, like the alstead flood and the ice storm of 2008. but she also remembers the little things, like a call for a cat up a tree. they told the caller the cat would be fine. >> about a half-hour later they called again and they needed help because their child was up the tree and couldn't get down. cat. reporter: she says once you send help, it's important to let go of that call and move onto the next person who needs you. >> it's the unknown, but it's also fulfilling to be able to

5:38 pm
josh: commitment 2016, we asked the candidates to explain the federal government's role when it comes to public education. >> you know, here's the fact itself on public education. the department of education has gotten bigger and bigger for 40 years. more funding and more power. and the quality of education in our country is deteriorating. so what do i conclude from that? money in the department of education and power in the department of education don't help the quality of education.
5:39 pm
education? the great teacher in the front of the classroom and an involved parent or community. so we need to push money and responsibility out of the federal government and to the states and towards communities. second, we need to give parents real choices. so that when their child is in a failing school or with a failing teacher, they actually have the opportunity to pick their child up and give him or her another choice. and finally, we need to reward the really good teachers. actually. i think that when i was governor i believe that we ought to have all flowers bloom. i believe that public education, private education, parochial, home schooling. but i as a governor was a steward of the public schools and i said we should put in 4,000 new teachers to reduce class sizes and build up that teach are-student relationship which i believe in. i'm a product of public education.
5:40 pm
mother was a secretary. we didn't have the money to go to special education al opportunities or private schools. i was in the public school and i'm very proud of it and i think it served me very, very well. this is what i think. i think that education is best served at the local level with parents and families, and local school systems supported by the state the way that i did when i was governor. but i'm absolutely against the federal role that's offered by bush and kasich of the idea of common core education from the federal government. i reject that. >> the federal government doesn't have a role in public education. there's nothing in the constitution that says to the federal government, here's what you need to do about education. it needs to get out of the education business. if it does anything at all, maybe be a clearing house of the best practices that are done in states so that other states can borrow from the library of ideas. but there should be no mandates coming from the federal government. those decisions belong in the communities, mothers and fathers
5:41 pm
education decisions, and then it's local school boards. and the states, because in many states the state constitution gives the state the responsibility to ensure that children are getting a good education. but the quicker the federal government gets out of it, the better. >> i think that the federal government ought to return the power, money and influence of public education back to us at the state and local level. to that end i'm collapsing 104 programs at the federal level into four buckets, sending those dollars here to places like new hampshire and all across the country for us to run education at the state and local level. josh: we'll hear more from the candidates in tomorrow's 5:00 news. you can find more on where they stand on this and other issues in the politics section of mike: another mild day out there, temperatures jumping well
5:42 pm
across new hampshire, especially in southern zones. up to 40 plus. take a look right now at the weirs, time lapse from earlier today, you do notice a little snow and that very thin film of ice out there. but all the notice a bit of maine ohing kurring during the late afternoon and it is nowhere close to being safe to venture out there on the big lake. plenty of open spots on winnipesaukee. a weak system moves in tomorrow, snow thundershowers, that means a trace to as much as an inch. a trace, just a few flurries could see up to an inch. another system tries to build in from a strong ocean storm well out to sea. then we get to the weekend, relatively quiet. a warm front means more clouds later saturday and a few flakes up north. then here go the temperatures again after dipping just a built over the next couple of days, 40 plus starting on sunday again. right now a few scattered flurries up north, they're
5:43 pm
temperatures still running above the freezing point, mid to upper 30's from the merrimack valley and towards the coast. monadnock region through the 35. good part of the lakes region just a notch or two above that. and really not all that cold farther to the north, it is in low to mid 30's in the white mountains and 20's to the north. but still all these temperatures are above average for this early hour of the evening. no big temperature tumble. notice in the coming hours, they coast down a little bit, but with an increase in cloud cover and a light win out of the south it will be tough to get temperatures much lower tonight 20's for tonight. so a relatively warm start to the day tomorrow. two systems that we're tracking over the next 24 hours, big upper level feature in the great lakes that will swing on through northern and western new hampshire for late tonight, especially beginning tomorrow morning into the early afternoon. then an ocean storm that will really crank up far out to sea, but a little piece of energy could work back at us giving us scr snow showers from mid
5:44 pm
so look at it on future cast, notice how the clouds begin to lower and thicken. and from that system to the east and from the west, a scattering of snow showers and even right at the coast, mid to upper 30's may result in a few rain drops mixing in with a few flakes here or there, not much in the way of statewide. once we get into saturday, more partial sun and then clouds will race in late with a few flurries up north. that's along a warm front and that means temperatures heading higher yet again. a cooldown the next couple of days, but still above average. speaking of above average, we've government it big time for sunday, in the mid 40's, up near 50. couple of scattered afternoon rain showers. slightly cooler but bright and pleasant on tuesday, and the next storm with the warm air in place will be tough to get any snow. maybe an icy mix early wednesday morning, but then over to rain. jennifer: if you want to live a satisfying life, the continental u.s. may not be the best place
5:45 pm
