1:41 am
saying, no, forget the two month extension. we're not buying anything in the year which means payroll taxes go up and unemployment benefits run out for about 2.2 million families. they can get some things done on the hill. taxpayer paid employees set up a podium in front of a potted plant while house republicans met to strategize. somebody thought some flags could be nice. no deal on payroll taxes yet, but more flags. some more house republicans entered the meeting and they worked on the flags some more. then got another one. sometimes tapes help. even when the speaker of the house walks in. setting the stage for the announcement rejecting the two month extension. >> our members do not just want to punt and do a short-term fix where we have to do this again. we're willing to stay here and get the job done to make sure the payroll tax credit is done for the entire year so the

1:43 am
payroll tax cuts. thinking it had a deal, the senate levittown. the reason there was a two month extension is they couldn't agree on how to pay for the tax cuts and that hasn't changed. >> all right. gary nurenberg, thank you. justified or reckless? that's the question tonight after another police officer shot a man in pring george's county this weekend -- prince george's county this weekend. officer michael owens junior shot and killed rodney edwards saturday night in land over. owens was in uniform and returning from a toy give away in an unmarked van when he saw the 35-year-old lying in the grass. now, assistant chief kevin davis says that man turned out to be armed with a pistol and pointed it at owens. >> this police officer saw someone who was minimally in his opinion in need of some type of attention. so he stopped. he stopped to help him. and from that, he was encountered by an arm gun. i would argue that that police

1:46 am
be his successor. the change could offer the white house a diplomatic opportunity. >> we both share a common interest in a peaceful and stable transition in north korea as well as an ensuring regional peace and stability. >> now, interestingly the u.s. was all set to announce just this week a huge food aid program to north korea and in return to that he would have agreed to suspend the uranium program. that is now on hold until the period of mourning and until they figure out how the new leadership will go. the man who says he's christ like and fired shot at the white house will not be getting out of jail any time soon. he will now stay behind bars until his trial. the 21-year-old is accused of firing up to a dozen shots at the white house last month. today a u.s. magistrate called hernandez a particularly

1:48 am
health care. tomorrow the dc council will make signature changes to the independent taxi cabs that do business in the district. under the plan, the city would require cab drivers to accept credit cards and install gps devices. and we the customers would be paying for this with a new sur charge. also cabs might have to have a uniform color. council members had thoughts on that. >> i have expressed the view that i would hope they would be white. >> the same color scheme we used on the circulator bus so people associate it with transportation or something that maybe reflects our cab. >> they will have to take a course on driving skills and local geography. well, the clouds are in place. actually pretty mild still. kind of a chilly evening, a chilly morning. we'll show you your wakeup weather. 38-44 to start. 36-42 by 7:00 and upper 40s by

1:57 am
but nothing heavy. bad news, wetter. much milder on wednesday despite the clouds and showers. and still mild on thursday. the real good news for thursday is i think it will be dry and mild. pretty nice for what is now late december. all right. overnight mostly cloudy, breezy, just chilly. a shower possible primarily west of i81. low temperatures 36-42. winds southwest 10-15. winds will turn northwest briefly by dawn tomorrow. and then by morning, mostly cloudy and cool. a couple of showers. i would concentrate on the coat, though. 30s and 40s. notice the winds go northeasterly. it's not a warm wind for us so a little cooler. 30s and 40s. by afternoon, well, mostly cloudy and cool. a few showers. winds out of the east at 10. near 50. when you have winds out of the east, it's not a warm wind.
1:58 am
wednesday is going to be wetter day for the week. i raised temps a little bit. 36-42. that might be low. 40s by noon and then 46-51. a couple of showers by evening. the best chance of a wet commute will be in the evening, especially from i66 north and route 50 north as well. all right. next three days, look at the milder air. upper 50s wednesday, thursday. we might hit 60 on thursday. showers a good chance with some periods of rain on wednesday. we're going to keep thursday dry. notice clouds come back. we're kind of in a quick moving pattern now where we get a day to break and then we have another storm system come in. so rain probably develop thursday night into friday morning and then we have a break and another shower or some rain on saturday for the redskins game. right now it looks mild for the redskins game. temps low 50s. we'll keep christmas dry. we should be in between storms there. and then next monday clouds come back at us and actually a little cold air is available for a change. and perhaps we see a little light snow or flurries by
1:59 am
evening. >> okay. >> okay. >> it will be pretty. >> it will be very pretty. >> light snow. >> okay. >> thanks, top. you know, we thought that if suspending the two best offensive players would hurt the redskins, apparently they're better now. >> with all of the injuries, the suspensions, the people not getting as much playing time, the young guys have stepped up. that's kind of what sports are all about. you get the one chance and you have to prove yourself. the injuries plagued the redskins but you wouldn't know it. mike shanahan expected performance of his young guys plus the wizards get shooting
2:00 am
2:01 am
now 9 sports with kristen berset, the best sports in town. >> we hear it all the time in sports, a player goes down with
2:02 am
injuries and it's the next best man. the more players we lose, the better the redskins play. royster gets some yardage. these are performances shanahan wasn't expecting. >> very surprised. it says a lot about the guys playing hard and working doing the little things during the week. >> after working the wizards pre-season debacle, it's obvious they need some serious help. young tested the free agent monitors but didn't get the big time offers he had wanted so he returned to washington signing a one year deal today worth 3.7 million. young is coming off a year year with the wizards averaging 17.4 points a game, more than double what he produced the season before. and although this wasn't the
2:03 am
outcome he had hoped for, although we would all like the money, he was just ready to play some ball. >> like i said, it played out the way it played out. i'm just going to play basketball the best i can. >> things didn't work out, but they'll work out in the end so i'll expect them to come in and have a great year for us. >> nick looked very conditioned. he looked focused and looked like he came back with a little chip on his shoulder like he has something to prove. >> some college games in action tonight. virginia tech hosting north florida. green goes in for the dunk. hokies up by 20. and then brown to green again. hokies win 44-55. miles gets the ball at the top of the key. gets it to kevin jones. off the block for the two points. a big night for jones. finishes with a double-double. 25 points, 14 rebounds. west virginia wins 72-53. finally tonight this from the recent caps flyers game. watch the ref in the corner.
