Thanks for joining us tonight.

President trump is back in washington after a quick trip to the world economic forum in switzerland.

But even while he was on the world stage, the president was focused on what was happening on the senate floor.

Cbs's ben tracy has the latest from the white house.

Before leaving the world economic forum in switzerland...presi dent trump said there's somewhere else he'd like to be: front and center at his impeachment trial.

I'd love to go, wouldn't that be great.

Wouldn't that be beautiful//sit right in the front row and stare in their corrupt faces.

The president gave his own attorneys rave reviews and then unloaded on the house managers...democr ats adam schiff and jerry nadler.

These two guys major sleaze bags, very dishonest people, very very dishonest people.

Despite republican efforts to block witnesses...preside nt trump claims he'd love to see testimony from current and former members of his administration, including former advisor john bolton.

But mr trump said national security concerns, particularly in bolton's case, make that unlikely.

He knows some of my thoughts, he knows what i think about leaders.

What happens if he reveals what i think about certain leader and it's not very positive//and he knows other things.

I don't know if we left on the best of terms, i would say probably not.

Back in the us, the president's campaign manager, brad parscale, told cbs this morning impeachment is helping mr. trump's reelection bid.

There's millions now that are engaged to show up.

And i will tell you, the president has a larger base now significantly from 2016.

Tag: as for the president actually showing up at his impeachment trial, republican senator john cornyn says the president should focus on other business but his colleague senator rand paul says he may send mr. trump a ticket in case he wants to use it.

Norah?

For now president trump is keeping to his planned appearances.

He is scheduled to attend the march for life in washington on friday..

First look stinger first look summary: a quick moving weather maker will produce areas of rain in our region thursday and thursday night.

Anywhere from 1/4" to around 1" of moisture is possible.

The heaviest activity is more likely during the afternoon and evening.

A weak system is expected pass through the deep south on sunday and there is an outside chance for a shower or two but we think the better rain chance will remain across southern mississippi.

Wednesday night: cloudy with some showers possible by sunrise some sleet is also possible.

Lows in the 30s.

Winds se 2 to 7 mph.

Thursday: areas of showers during the morning with heavier activity during the afternoon and evening.

Highs in the 40s.

Winds se 5 to 15 mph.

Mississippi requires high schoolers to take four subject area tests---english... algebra.... biology... and u-s history.

Of the four.....the u-s history test is the only one of that is not required by the federal government or state law.

Several people are now working to find a way to scrap the test.

As courtney ann jackson explains---the recent attempts are hitting a roadblock.

The question of whether students are tested too much generates a lot of feedback.

And those concerns made it all the way through one process only to be stopped at the end.

Rep.

Tom miles has made those public outcries part of the conversation at the capitol in recent years.

"the students don't want it, the principals don't want it.

But mississippi department of education seems to think they know better than teachers that are already in the classroom everyday."

Miles is referring to the testing task force that was formed.

They polled teachers to find out if they thought the u.s. history test should stay as a graduation requirement.

Task force member kelly riley--- "i think a lot of educators feel like their concerns have just been set aside.

Multiple surveys repeatedly showed that basically a 3 to 1 response was eliminate the assessment.

It's not necessary.

It would free up funds.

It will lessen the focus and stress related to assessments."

So--we asked...what's next?

"myself and other legislators plan to file bills this year to do away with the united states history test."

If at first you don't succeed---try again.

That's one way to describe what's happening here.

Despite the recommendation of the task force, the state board of education voted to keep the us history test---saying members were expressed concern that the removal of the assessment could lessen the importance of u.s. history in schools.

Miles makes this note.

"we're not trying to eliminate u.s. history.

We're not trying to eliminate any kind of history classes.

We want to actually let history teachers teach history and not have to teach to that standardized test."

If the legislature votes to approval a bill to do away with the u.s. history exam--- that path would not need approval by the state board of education.

The north star industrial park in oktibbeha county is getting the attention of developers..

Today, golden triangle development link ceo joe max higgins spoke about the progress being made at the park and proposals for future projects.

Higgins is asking city and county leaders to consider building a tva pad..... a spec building and invest in a one billion dollar project called project trinity.

Funding for the tva pad and spec building will come from the existing bond revenue from the park... higgins says they are still looking for money for project trinity..

"the tva pad project is 100,000 square feet.

In a perfect world we will find a company that will come in and want to take the pad and build a building with at least 100,000 square feet on it and employ people, we think advanced manufacturing would go there.

The spec building, which is next-door to it, that's a building that's built, it doesn't have the interior built for it, but everything is there.

In other words, the roof is there, the walls are there, you come in and you finish the building out like you want it.

Then on the bigger project, it's just a huge capital investment, good pay.

Probably the winner there is the capital investment that it makes and the taxes it would pay to the city, county, and the schools."

Garan manufacturing is set to move into the new park... higgins says they're also in the process of building a sign entrance and water tank at the park.

Both of those are expected to be completed by the end of the summer..

Another area getting a lot of attention in starkville... is the city's streets..

Aldermen approved the next step in building a multi-use path connecting the town... and mississippi state's campus.

The first stage is a wide sidewalk and 2 lane bike path on locksley way that opened to walkers..

And bikers a couple of months ago.

Our bobby martinez was in starkville today where he learned the goal is to make getting from point a to point b as smooth as possible.

"i can remember not long ago, when people were going sidewalks to nowhere."

It's a priority for starkville mayor lynn spruill - making transportation for students and residents as smooth as possible by: "offering multiple ways of getting about.

Because as you all know, we're looking at autonomous vehicles i future, bicycling, we're looking at scooters, we're looking at any number of ways for people to get around."

Change.

That is something spruill says she focuses on when it comes to remodeling the city of starkville, especially when it comes to the infrastructure.

"it's a quality of life issue for us.

And so students, millennials, the kids that we want to come to school and stay here, find sidewalks, and pedestrian access and bicycling and that sort of thing very attractive element to a community.

It's also important for retirees.

And we have certified retirement community here and as you get older a lot of times getting in a car is not what you want to do.

So if you have an opportunity for walking and for biking - then that allows us to go generation to generation and be attractive to everyone."

Anna dicki says she uses the downtown sidewalks all the time.

Sot - anna dicki - junior, msu "i really enjoy walking my dog especially in the downtown area because there's sidewalks on both sides and there's not a whole lot of traffic or anything so we always have a smooth and easy walk."

Sot - ryan young - pedestrian "it's especially easy now.

I'm also a big bike rider and i like to walk around a lot.

Really shows the city of starkville has taken the initiative to kind of provide some more pathways and walk ways for bikers and pedestrians as well.

So it's a lot easier to get around that way."

Sot - brien carter - senior/msu "i say it's pretty cool because it promotes fitness and also just getting out there.

You know you're in the mississippi weather so might as well take it in as some point throughout the day."

Spruill also says she has a lot of new projects that will take place this year that will help the city's infrastructure.

Take q's reentry r-s-v is a serious respiratory virus that affects children mostly before the age of two.

Tonight we learn some of the symptoms in our health talk with baptist.

Segment 2 - symptoms of rsv what are the symptoms of rsv?

Symptoms of rsv are similar to other respiratory infections.

Illness usually beings 4 to 6 days after exposure with a runny nose and a decrease in appetite.

Coughing, sneezing and fever typically develop one to three days later.

Wheezing may also occur.

When rsv affects the upper respiratory system, symptoms are usually mild and resemble those of the common cold: ?

Cough ?

Stuffy or runny nose ?

Mild sore throat ?

Earache ?

Fever, usually at the beginning of the illness.

Babies have additional symptoms, including: ?

A decreased interest in their surroundings ?

Listlessness and sleepiness ?

Irritability and not sleeping well ?

Poor feeding it is often hard to distinguish between a common cold and rsv.

Rsv can sometimes lead to other more serious conditions such as bronchiolitis or pneumonia or both.

Symptoms of these complications include: ?

Difficulty breathing ?

Wheezing ?

Coughing that is getting worse.

?

Lethargy, increased tiredness, decreased interest in surroundings or loss of interest in food.

In very young infants, irritability, decreased activity and breathing difficulties may be the only symptoms of infections.

Most otherwise healthy infants infected with rsv do not need to be hospitalized.

In most cases, even among those who need to be hospitalized, hospitalization usually only lasts a few days and full recovery from illness occurs in about one to two weeks.

Join us next time for health talk with baptist when we will discuss when to call the doctor and treatment for rsv.

Treatment for rsv.
