here's the truth -- some have proposed to cut social security for the elderly and disabled vets. i disagree. in fact, not only should we not cut benefits -- we should expand them. my plan for social security increases benefits and cost of living adjustments and raises minimum payments for low-income seniors. it will ensure that all seniors can retire with dignity and respect. i'm bernie sanders,
tom: a nun from atkinson is charged in a hit-and-run accident. jennifer: police say she hit on the car in the parking lot of the kohl's in december. when that driver tried to
get her information, she drove away. dumont turned herself in on tuesday and is charged with conduct after an accident. she was released on bail and is expected to appear in court in april. tom: right now a search in hooksett for to people caught on surveillance breaking into a gun store and stealing handguns. they were gone when police arrived. shelley walcott live tonight with what she learned from investigators. shelley: well, tom, hooksett police say they need your help to find the people who burglarized a gun store. it happened just before 4:00 a.m. wednesday. police responded to an alarm at wicked weaponry. the store is located at 114 londonderry turnpike.
the gun owner says they forced their way into the business and stole four firearms. >> for us security is paramount, the safety of the public is paramount, just like any gunshop owner. so it's even more troublesome for us when something like this happens, because you worry about people and the things that can happen when they're out there, so you try to mitigate this as much as possible. reporter: again, four firearms stolen. if you have any information, please contact the hooksett police. we're live at the hooksett police department, shelley walcott, wmur news 9. tom: okay, give yourself extra time tomorrow morning. mike: it's not a whole lot that it takes to make the roads slick, so big changes are coming in.
above the obstacles in place and look to the american horizon. to a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one. where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen. where a good job is not a wish, but a reality. where women receive equal pay and a living wage is paid to all. an america where after a lifetime of labor, there is time for rest and grandchildren. a nation that defends
our people and our values, but no longer carries so much of that burden alone. i know we can create that america if we listen to our conscience and our hearts and not to the pundits and the naysayers. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message,
building in late and they're all in advance of the next system that's just sitting down here to our south. yesterday computer models had most of this sliding far enough off to the south and east of new hampshire to just produce a few flurries or a light snow
shower in southeastern parts of the state. now the latest trend are to drag some of the moisture far enough to the north and west to give us a steady snow friday morning. but hard to imagine we'd be seeing snow after these highs today, upper fourth to near 50 north, that happened early this morning. elsewhere in the state, 40's and 50's, running about 20 to 25 above the average for this time of year. that winter chill slowly beginning to build in across the state, upper 30's on average, lakes region north and west, a few low 40's in concord and row chester and a bit above that south and east. overnight tonight we all get below freezing, lakes region points north and west, but it will remain dry. a light mix changing over to light wet snow, concord points south and east during the
begins to intensify just in time for the morning commute. that train of moisture building in from the south will scoot on in here after about two in the morning, as a late wintery mix, but then quickly go over to wet snow, as soon as it intensifies. notice the northern edge of this by one, two in the morning, not into new hampshire just yet. shortly after that time frame we start to see the snow and a little rain at the coast, quickly over to wet snow. lit be the big monster flakes with temperatures right around 32, that wet pasty snow. and it continues through the morning commute through the lunch time hour. a defined northern edge to this system, so tupper valley maybe a few flurries. late morning and early afternoon, dryer air builds in from west to east, so that right at the coast the snow should wind down after one, 1:30 or two at the last. on into the weekend, fairly quiet, such partial sun each day with temperatures lining up in
maybe near 40 in parts of southern new hampshire as we go into the day on sunday. here's the projected snow totals on average. a two to four inch tally, that would include areas around concord, up through rochester, just to the north, places like milton and new durham, just south of ossipee and to the north and west of that it's only a dusting to an inch, maybe two in the heart of the lakes region with only a coating in tupper valley, northern white mountains and southern parts of the great north woods. up to four, maybe five-inch amounts in extreme southeastern areas south and east of concord. you notice the four to six inch band not too far away, so we'll follow the trend this evening and if necessary budge that in across southeastern new hampshire. but right now two to four with an isolated five looks to be the case, snow cast is going to be sky cast turning to snow cast, in the predawn hours. greasy on the roads for the morning commute and slick right through the lunch hour before we start to see clearing. speaking of clearing, the
>> our attention is on hockey tonight as the bruins skate at the buffalo sabres, game time 7:00. this is the beginning of a home and home series, the teams also play saturday in boston. last year's baker award winner, jack eichel is having a great rookie season with buffalo, he's played in all 51

he's the captain of all three sports he plays, football, basketball and lacrosse. a role he takes very seriously. >> being a leader is important to me, because being captain i have to be the role model for the team on and off the court, make sure i'm doing the right things. reporter: brendan was a wide receiver for the football team and says football is his favorite of the three. he's undecided about his college plans, but hopes to continue his football career while studying business and sports management. regardless of where he ends up, he's developed some valuable skills that should take him far. >> i'm always giving my best no matter what sport it is and pushing my teammates to be better also.
