for black friday, kwwl's amanda gilbert is live in waterloo -- where people are walking into menards doors just opened here in waterloo. as you can see behind me people are piling in . the line stretched from one entrance to beyond the other entrance. i'd say there's more than 100 people piling in. take a look at this video rig this is the kind here this morning. some showed up as early as 4:30 this morning. peoole are wearing coats, blankets. hats. many are in warm pajamas. i think i saw some onesies. a lot of these people piling in tell me they are here for the tradition. they tell me they are just here for
until today to open for shoppers. lindale mall in cedar rapids, crossroads mall in waterloo, kennedy mall mall in coralville all open this morning at six. thanksgiving day shopping is becoming an even bigger event for many people. shoppers packed aisles across the country to grab t- vs and other electronics on sale. the competition is driving some stores to open even earlier on the holiday. online shopping continues to grow -- and more people are doing it on the job. a new study by career-builder shows more than half of all workers say they'll spend some time
their phones. continuing coverage -- fueling the fire. an oil recycling business catches fire -- and a firefighter has to go to the hospital. it happened in central city --- the smoke could be seen for miles. 12 fire departments battled the fire for many hours yesterday. people told us they heard an "it's sad, what can you do, i hope they, this is one of the more enjoyable places that i worked at" this morning, the cause of the fire is still being investigated. we'll keep you updated as new information comes in today. a fire destroys a new york onion
the cause of the fire is unknown, but firefighters say it does not appear to be suspicious. the fire caused more than a million dollars in damage and the building is considered a loss. missing for three weeks -- a mother is reunited with her family. but as yasmin amer tellus us, the search for her alleged kidnappers is just beginning. a family's prayers answered. 34-year-old sherri papini was found alive early jogging in northern california. police say she had been freed by her captors and left on the side of the road in o from where she was last seen. according to police, papini freed herself from restraints...and flagged down a passing motorist. days after she went missing...her husband keith papini broke down as he spoke about what it was "it's the worst thing in the world...it's the worst thing ever." community members who helped search for her were
a lot of tears.and realizing it quite over. shasta county sheriff tom bosenko says the alleged kidnappers are still at large. "we're looking for a dark colored colored suv with two hispanic females armed with a handgun." police don't know the identities of the two women...and they still don't have a possible motive. but for papini's family...all that matters is that she's finally home. i'm yasmin amer reporting. the sheriff says she was treated for some injuries -- but did not say what they were or how severe they are. the search is on for two inmates who escaped from jail. california deputies say four
deputies caught two of them called "dangerous and desperate." "no tool has been discovered at this time. so we're still actively searching for what may have cut those bars, but nothing was recovered in the cell or outside on the ground." both men were in jail burglary and weapons charges. a man is accused of stabbing both his parents on thanksgiving. deputies in o mom in a headlock -- and when his dad tried to help her -- he put is dad in a headlock too. then he allegedly pushed his dad to the ground and stabbed him repeatedly. mom tried to help dad -- and he both are now in serious condition. don't you think holidays sometimes bring out the worst in people. and perhaps whatever the argument was -- if there was an argument -- it just
attempted murder. as so many spend time with their families this weekend -- six families in tennessee are grieving the loss of a child following a bus crash earlier this week. as michelle heron shows us -- many people are taking time to stop by a memorial over this holiday weekend. it took every ounce of courage for misti nash to come here. "fore heartbreaking. she's trying to be strong." somehow, she found the strength to see the place where her nine-year-old daughter zoie lost her life. her brother antwon mcclain says despite their pain, today his family is thankful for a lot. "she lost a child. thank god that my nephew -- he's going to be alright. he made it out of the icu ok." eight-year-old zecheriah was one
in monday's crash. nats - "going to be in heaven with my brother." "i couldn't make myself come until today because it's thanksgiving." the pain still resonates through the woodmore community -- like rosie russell, a substitute teacher at the school. "because the first thing i thought of this morning was the fact that their families won't have them for thanksgiving. i'm going to go and have mine later on today." nats - "six teddy bears. she picked them out herself." lamont solomon knows the pain these six parents feel. he lost his son in a crash four years ago. "everyday when i pick my daughter up, we go the same way -- this way to get to my shop. but for some reason, god sent me instead of turning right to talley road, god sent me to the left." we may never know all of the answers, but what these families do know is that they are loved. and for mcclain that means a lot. "it really has given me a life
really care and showing that we can come together as a community." the n-f-l's tennessee titans are reaching out to the families affected by the crash. the team's foundation will donate 25-thousand dollars to the woodmore fund -- which was created to support the families. the titans also plan to wear decals on their helmets for sunday's game to honor the young victims. law enforcement gives an alert -- warning people in north dakota of pipeline protestors over the thanksgiving weekend. protests have intensified in recent weeks, more than five hundred arrests since august. yesterday protesters gathered at an intersection and disrupted traffic as some shouted "shame on you, north dakota!" the four-state pipeline would also run through iowa. a spacegiving dinner. two of the six- member space station crew are nasa astronauts from the u-s - including peggy
their holiday meal. the menu sounded like a traditional thanksgiving dinner, but it may have lacked some of the touches of home. "so of course we're going to have, our foods a little different so, here's our turkey right here, so it's in a pouch we're going to heat this up and it's going to taste really good just like you're having at home." also on the thanksgiving menu in space - dehydrated cornbread dressing, green beans and mushrooms, and mashed potatoes. it's coming up on today in iowa.... planning the trip -- then plans fizzle out due to a fire. disappointed nature lovers this thanksgiving weekend. plus...he can't drive himself -- but loves nothing more than to ride in the sidecar.
