hoping to fix that, next. pet moments are beautiful, unless you have allergies. then your eyes may see it differently. only flonase is approved to relieve both itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. when we breathe in allergens our bodies react by over producing six key inflammatory substances that cause our symptoms. most allergy pills only control one substance. flonase controls six. and six is greater than one. complete allergy relief or incomplete. let your eyes decide.
11:10 pm
in health watch tonight.. studies show that the majority of seniors take more than four prescriptions a day-- and misuse is among one of the most serious health risks they face. that's why the university of nevada's sanford center for aging is hoping to help educate seniors before they medicate-- with a new program called medication therapy management their goal is to mitigate risks such as hospitalization, early admission to nursing facilities, and scary side effects. greta- "a very major side effect is dizziness which causes seniors to fall." greta- "we provide a comprehensive medication therapy management review which would identify those at risk factors that they may be experiencing." medication therapy management
11:11 pm
pharmacists go over each drug and write a comprehensive list.. which can be taken to a physician to review and ensure all the medications can interact together. the program is free at the sanford center - for those 60 and over who are taking five or more prescriptions. to get schedule a medication review or to speak with susan neeley, their numbers are there on your screen. 784-1612 for the sanford center and 813-1347 for susan neeley. turning to money watch.. tax filing season is well underway. and while every filing season has its own pitfalls and issues... confusion over one form in particular has given this one a new twist. wiberg: "everybody is required to have health insurance, so your 1095 form is your proof of insurance under the affordable care act." under the law, most people must have health insurance or pay the fine.
11:12 pm
1095 b or c forms have been sent by insurers or employers-- and it's creating some confusion among taxpayers who think the forms are required to file your taxes-- they're not. if you're part of the 85 percent who had coverage all year, just check the box on your return that says you had coverage. the irs has a special page on their website on all the provisions. we set up a link for you to take a look at that... at of this story. also in money watch.. tomorrow the home depot is hiring to fill 300 spring jobs at its reno stores. the hiring event will be from 9 a-m to 3 p-m at the west reno store on summit ridge court. they'll be conducting on- site interviews, and candidates are encouraged to apply online ahead of time. for a link where to do so head to k-t-v-n dot com and click the online version of this story. still to come on channel 2 news at 11 - find out why the truckee meadows water authority is using

11:14 pm
11:15 pm
organic farmers across the country-- and here in nevada-- are getting a little boost from the federal government. some provisions from the 2014 farm bill are just taking effect now... geared toward increasing sustainable farming... and organic food. clint: "congress did this in recognition of the increasing importance of organic farmers in the us. every year organic demand far outweighs organic production." new programs through the usda... offer incentives-- for planting things that help
11:16 pm
resources... and support pollinators, like bees. farmers can also get low-interest loans... help with field mapping... and protection for crop losses. the idea... is to help organic farmers... but also to encourage practices that improve soil and water quality... and help the environment overall. for more information about applying for these programs... just head to the online version of this story... at the truckee meadows water authority has about 90 wells around reno and sparks -- and they're using about 20 of them to put water back into the ground. something they've been doing since 1993. about 10 million gallons of treated water from the truckee river are injected through the wells to recharge the aquifers. it happens during the fall and winter months, when demand is about 25 percent of what it is in the summer. the water is stored there for later use. miller "we always say we trust groundwater like money in the bank. we only use it when we have to but we like to operate the wells, keep them in service, keep them utilized. we use them
11:17 pm
keep them in place all the time, so that they'r ready when we do need them." about 4,000 acre feet of water were pumped into the ground, last year. and tmwa is looking to expand the program in the future. the third snow survey of the year measured 58 inches of snow just off highway 50 near echo summit-- the best since 2011 for this time of year. last year's march reading was just six point five inches. still.. february turned out to be a bit disappointing. gehrke: "clearly a decline from last months really good start but when we have only one storm event in february this is how you end up. echo summit ended up with snow levels at 83 percent of the historic average for march. not bad.. but the drought concern is not over. frankie gehrke who's been heading this survey since the 1980's says it's an improvement over last year's lowest snowfall on record.. but we need to see

thanks mike. after the break - a nasa astronaut is home safe tonight after spending a year in space. the details on scott kelly's return to earth... coming up
11:22 pm
11:23 pm
after a year in space... nasa astronaut scott kelly made his way back to earth today.. landing in kazakhstan just a couple hours ago. it was a bittersweet goodbye for kelly.. who made his trip back home from the international space station in a soyuz capsule - after 340 days in space. before his departure.. kelly handed over space station command to fellow astronaut tim kopra. it took the astronaut and russian cosmonauts mikhail komienko and sergey volkov about 3 and a half hours to get from the international space station to the barren,
11:24 pm
komienko also spent a year in space. they circled the world 5,440 times on a mission that began last march. their duration was twice as long as a typical mission.. and gives researchers an opportunity to study the challenges of long-duration spaceflight. a little closer to home... today president obama sat down with key senate republican leaders to discuss the high-stakes vacancy on the supreme court bench. reporter: sir is anyone going to listen: pres. obama: thank you everybody. the president refused to answer questions from reporters during the meeting with senate majority leader mitch mcconnell and chair of the senate judiciary committee, senator chuck grassley... along with senate minority leader harry reid and senator patrick leahy of the judiciary committee. president obama has vowed to send a nomination to the senate within the next few weeks. today the fbi and apple faced off for the first time since federal prosecutors asked a judge to force the tech company to unlock a phone belonging to
11:25 pm
terrorists. paula reid is in washington where both sides appeared before congress. fbi director james comey testified first in front of a house committee hearing on encryption. he said the fbi's request is specific to san bernardino shooter syed farook's iphone. this case in san bernardino was not about the fbi, it's not about apple. it's not about congress. it's not about anything other than doing a competent investigation. but he did acknowledge forcing apple to unlock the phone would set a precedent. but apple's top lawyer argued any hacking software it provides the fbi can and will lead to a broad encroachment on privacy and security. weakening encryption will only hurt consumers and well-meaning users who rely on companies like apple to protect their personal information. at a cyber security conference in california, attorney general loretta lynch questioned apple's position. i'm just, again, surprised the choice would be 'we're not even going to think about this anymore. we're done thinking.'
11:26 pm
this tor all of us? the hearings come a day after a judge in new york ruled that the fbi cannot force apple to unlock an iphone used in a drug implications in the san bernardino dispute. paula reid, cbs news, washington. fbi director comey also admitted that law enforcement made an initial mistake after san bernardino.. making it harder to access data on the suspect's the error.. investigators would still need help from apple recovering all the information they're seeking. the wolf pack women's basketball team played its final home game of the season against boise state tonight, garrett has the highlights next in sports.
