Comparatively warmer

Meteorologist Bobby Johnston said compared to the last few days, it will be much warmer today with the  high near 54 degrees. For Halloween night, it'll drop from near 50 degrees at 6 p.m. to the upper 30's by 10 p.m.

House to vote on impeachment resolution today

The House is set to vote today on a resolution that formalizes the rules for the impeachment inquiry against President Trump. The vote is expected to be largely, if not completely, along party lines. Republicans said they were left out of the drafting of the resolution and the nearly two dozen amendments they offered all failed. Critics of President Trump say he is in this predicament because of unethical behavior, including his phone call with the Ukrainian President in July. 

2020 sign up for Affordable Care Act

The Obama Health Care Bill has shown remarkable resiliency, but it has also fallen short of expectations. The number of uninsured Americans has been rising again, even though some people would qualify for zero premium coverage after taking into account financial subsidies. Open enrollment for Health Insurance on healthcare.gov starts Friday and ends December 15. Coverage takes effect January 1. 

Congress divided over border wall funding

A bitter fight over funding for border fencing causing problems as Capitol Hill tries to make progress on more than $1.4 trillion worth of overdue spending bills. Lawmakers are likely to prevent a government shutdown next month with a government wide stopgap spending bill, but there has been little progress on the tricky trade off needed to balance democratic demands for social programs with President Trump's border wall demands. 

Katie Hill to deliver final floor speech

Congresswoman Katie Hill will give her final floor speech on Capitol Hill today before her resignation takes effect tomorrow. Hill, who represents California's 25th Congressional District, was part of last year's historic, women-led wave in the midterm elections. She resigned amid an ethics probe into an alleged sexual relationship with a congressional aide, which she denied. 

Pres. Trump honors Master Sgt. Matthew Williams

President Trump has given the Nation's highest honor to a Green Beret from Texas. Master Sergeant Matthew Williams helped save four critically wounded teammates in 2008 during an ambush in Afghanistan. The fire fight on that mountainside lasted for hours and Sergeant Williams repeatedly put himself in the line of fire to recover and protect the other commandos with him. He's the second member of that detachment to receive the Medal of Honor for "Operation Commando Wrath."

Covenant caregivers ensure 'No One Dies Alone'

No One Dies Alone is a program at Covenant for patients who are close to death that don't have any family present. The volunteers part of this program are caregivers who work at Covenant. The caregivers use several, simple ways, to connect with the patient like turning on the tv or soothing music, touching, patting, being there for the patient. Since 2008, this program has provided comfort to many families each year. For the full story: click here.
