Good evening. I'm Kristin Kelly. And I'm Darren Perron. He was a prominent radiologist -- hit and killed while biking in Vermont this summer. Police say the woman -- behind the wheel -- was drunk. But now new evidence shows -- the doctor was impaired too. Investigative reporter -- Jennifer Costa -- joins us now to explain the latest twist. Jennifer? Kristin and Darren -- it was a tragedy that touched so many -- and sparked outrage within the cycling community. Now this new crash report -- filed Wednesday -- is changing the way some look at the case.


It was an evening bike ride that turned deadly -- for a prominent radiologist -- back in June. 60-year-old Ken Najarian briefed his wife on his route -- but he never returned home. He was killed on Greenbush Road in Ferrisburgh -- after his bike collided with Holly Gonyeau's car. Since then -- the case -- has drawn considerable scrutiny from the public. Police say Gonyeau -- was drunk. Two hours after the crash -- she had a blood alcohol content of 0.087 -- and admitted to taking prescription Xanax. In July -- she was charged with DUI -- but not Najarian's death. ((7/21/15 Lt. Garry Scott/Vt. State Police 00:19:35 "we don't believe it had a role other than she was impaired but as far as the collision itself it didn't have a factor in this.")) ((GRX)) A state police crash reconstruction team concluded the doctor was at fault. Troopers say Gonyeau's car -- and Najarian's bike -- were both headed south -- when Gonyeau allegedly crossed the center line -- to give Najarian space as she tried to pass. At the same time -- police say -- Najarian made an abrupt U-turn into Gonyeau's car. New information NOW shows Gonyeau was not the only one under the influence. Through a public records request -- Channel 3 -- obtained an amended crash report -- filed this week -- with the DMV. It includes toxicology results -- that show Najarian was on three different anti-depressant medications at the time of the fatal crash. Police determined the doctor was impaired -- because the drugs in his system were above the normal therapeutic level.


We reached out to the lawyer representing the Najarian family -- we have not heard back. Holly Gonyeau is due back in court -- on that DUI charge -- on October 26.


An organization helping municipalities across Vermont argues the state -- should "just say no" -- to legalizing pot. Eliza Larson reports.


Should we or shouldn't we? Questions surrounding legalizing the recreational use of marijuana in Vermont have been on the table for some time. Vermont's attorney general thinks we could be close. ((Bill Sorrell/D-Vt. Attorney General: "i think the stars are aligned,**** both in the senate and with the speaker Shap Smith come out in favor of responsible legalization 000547, I think the votes are there on the house side - 000551, and the Govenror has indicated if the right bill ends up on his desk he'll sign it 000557)) Legalization efforts received a big boost when Governor Shumlin and Speaker Smith said they'd back them -- yet those efforts still face opposition, including from one of the state's biggest organizations of communities. (TC 00:53:10:25 Title 2674)((Karen Horn/Vermont League of Cities and Towns: "we're very concerned about what the -- sort of -- corollary impacts might be of legalization and everything that comes with it." 00:53:19:11)) The Vermont League of Cities and Towns serves Vermont's municipal officials offering educational workshops, support for legislation, and consultation on a wide range of issues. (CONFERENCE NATS) On Thursday -- town officials from all over the state gathered at VLCT's annual Town Fair at Killington to talk about some of the issues facing Vermont towns. Included in the attendee's packet, was a flyer, stating the league's official stance on legalization. (TC 00:52:42:10 Title 2674)((Karen Horn/Vermont League of Cities and Towns: "Do not expand exceptions to Act 76 -- which was the 2013 law addressing marijuana and oppose the legalization of marijuana." 00:53:08:23)) League officials say in any discussion of legalization of marijuana, the legislature should identify the effects on the cities, towns and villages including impacts on local school populations, municipal employees, municipal ordinances, and municipal budgets. (NATS) No matter which side of the legalization debate they fall on, town officials agree it will be a hot topic in this legislative session. Eliza Larson. Channel 3 News. Killington.


Vermont Congresman Peter Welch says there is no one in Congress - who can unite republicans.. The party is in disarray - searching for someone to be the next speaker of the House - after John Boehner announced he's stepping down - and the next in line - Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California announced just before the vote that he no longer wants the job. Welch says he hopes moderate Republicans will find a candidate who can work with the Democratic minority - because no one will be able to please the far right members of the GOP.


(PHONER) ((Rep. Peter Welch - D-Vermont They could put up Abraham Lincoln, but unless they make a decision to essentially break away from this minority that has embraced nuclear tactics to get their way -- then they're not going to be a governing majority)) Technically, the next speaker does not need to be a member of Congress, but Welch says it would function better if they were.


As for Senator Leahy - he said today he cannot imagine more dysfunction - or more gridlock - than Congress has already seen. (( 001831, Sen. Patrick Leahy/D-Vermont: I was joking with someone this morning when I was leaving washington - I go by the office each day just to check what the name is on the door 001838)) ((001856, PL If you were doing a script for house of cards and you put this in people would say thats too far fetched 001902, )) Leahy says that the tea party wing of the party is irresponsible - their push for a government shutdown over the budget - fueling the chaos over House leadership.

New York Senator Charles Schumer wants the EPA to step in - to try to stop a massive discharge of sewage - in Canada. The City of Montreal plans to dump 2-billion gallons of raw sewage into the St. Lawrence river - during a highway construction project. The sewage discharge would happen a several spots along the river over the course of a week. Critics have called on Environmental authorities in Canada to stop the plan. And now Senator Schumer wants the US Environmental Protection Agency to step in because New York communities are downstream. Experts in Canada point out that the St. Lawrence river flows north.


The manhunt for convicted killers David Sweat and Richard Matt took a toll on the north country this summer. New York officials say it cost the state -- more than 20 million dollars. And as Rose Spillman reports -- Franklin County suffered big financial losses too.


Joe Johal owns the Dreamland Motel in Malone, New York. He says that when the manhunt for escaped prisoners Richard Matt and David Sweat headed into Franklin County, his motel--and others--were all sold out. (06:59:33 3873) ((Joe Johal/Dreamland Motel Owner "We told them to go to the other hotels, then they don't have no rooms there. Almost 45 miles that way or other direction there's no rooms." 06:59:41)) Johal says that June isn't usually a busy time, but the village was filled with people from across the region who were following the hunt. (07:02:40 3873) ((Joe Johal/Dreamland Motel Owner "All investigators, officers, media, everything. People from Vermont, people from Manhattan." 07:02:48)) Though Johal's business was booming, Franklin county's sales tax revenue was at a huge loss. (06:54:00 3872) ((Billy Jones/Chair of the Franklin County Legislature "We're usually a little over a million dollars for the month of June, or we were last year in 2014, and this year it dropped to around $465,000. So almost a half a million dollar drop." 06:54:15)) Though the county was filled with media and law enforcement officers, officials say that didn't make up for the loss of money typically spent by tourists and residents. (06:50:41 3871) ((Donna Kissane/Franklin County, NY Manager "Many people were... became home bound. Many people could not leave their homes and pass through certain check points to come into the village, to come into the shopping areas where they needed to purchase groceries or do their personal business." 06:50:57)) Officials say that many seasonal residents cancelled camp reservations or just stayed away to avoid the danger. So money normally spent on restaurants and other local businesses didn't come. Despite the loss, they say life is getting back to normal, and they don't expect there to be a lasting stigma from the prison escape. (06:56:53 3872) ((Billy Jones/Chair of the Franklin County Legislature "All the attractions we have, lakes, camping, canoeing, everything they wanted to do before, the businesses are getting back to normal, and things are resuming." 06:57:03)) For Johal, business has actually slowed down, but he's hopeful about normally busy seasons. (07:00:43 3873) ((Joe Johal/Dreamland Motel Owner "And ski, and so Sometimes hunting season is busy too. A lot of people come down here to hunt." 07:00:52)) Hopeful that the manhunt's impact on the region - is a thing of the past. Rose Spillman, Channel 3 News, Malone.


Salmon have started they're annual journey upstream to spawn. But here in Vermont -- many would not make it, without a big lift from friends on land. Kyle Midura reports.


Avid fishermen did not let rain stop them from enjoying one of the best times of year for the sport Friday. Salmon are making the long-journey upstream to spawn. (nats) But man-made dams like this one in Winooski can stand in the way... that's when Nicholas Staats of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service steps in with a man-made solution. (01:02:57:00) ((Nicholas Staats - U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service today we're moving salmon upstream. Every fall Salmon come up the Winooski river)) Fish enter a small outcropping -- with a catch basin. Every couple of days Nicholas and his peers at the state level partner with Burlington Electric Department, Winooski One Power and Green Mountain Power -- to lift them up. The fish are measured, catalogued, and given a ride further upstream past two more obstructions. (01:04:42:00) ((Nicholas Staats - U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service today was a very good day)) Staats says this year they've lent a hand to 50 salmon -- sixteen Friday -- and hope to exceed last year's mark of 158 before the salmon run ends. Staats says he'd like to see more fish -- and says that's why this work needs to be done. (01:03:33:00) ((Nicholas Staats - U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service it's really critical, most of the salmon in the lake are stock, but we're hoping that will get some contribution from naturally reared fish, so that's where it's key to get these fish over the barriers and to some good habitat for them to spawn)) Fish aren't the only ones who benefit. Rain may not stop anglers further upstream -- but a lack of fish would deter at least a few. KM, Ch.3 Winooski

It's kind of cold and dreary... It's time to start chopping and cleaning up in the garden. It is, ...But there are some things you want to save over the winter. This evening Charlie Nardozzi is showing us how to keep our tropical bulbs safe and sound until spring.


((Alright! Charlie's letting me use the big scissors today! Ha ha ha! Junior horticulturist Sharon Meyer! Here we go! That's right! It is time to dig up those sub tropical bulbs like dahlias, and canna lilies. It's not going to be sub tropical weather much longer. They might still look ok, but now is a good time to do it, while you are out there cleaning up the gardens, start cutting them back. So the first thing is, to cut them back. So, I want to cut them as close to the ground as possible? Yes, but you want to leave a little bit of a stem there, that will make it a little easier to pull them out and separate them off. So, a couple inches up then. Yes, just a couple inches, making nice, clean cuts. Look at that! That was fun! Look at that, you don't even need me. Once we get these leaves out of here, we're going to dig the whole tuber up, so once you pull it out, you want to get a hose and actually wash it a little bit wash some of the soil off... So are you going to separate that? Yes, so we're going to just pull this apart now, and usually it's a sharp knife or trowel or something just to cut right into the root system and you can actually separate out another plant. So this would be another plant for next year and then of course you can do three four or five of these. And you can have just a whole bunch of cannas next year. You might have some to give to your friends! There you go! And so the way to store these would be to put them into a cool basement, about 40 degrees. In slightly moistened peat moss, in a little rubbermaid container or something like that, or even wrapped up in newspaper. You want to keep it slightly moist, but not so wet that it's going to actually rot. So you can check it during the winter and see if it starts to shrivel up, if these roots start to really shrivel up, you might want to mist it a little bit with water. But generally, they will be fine until March or April and then you can pot them up and put them back outside. Nice. )) Runs 1:37 CG :05-:10 Charlie Nardozzi/Garden Expert CG :24-:28 Bob Davis photo credit



Foliage season is in full swing -- and it's also Columbus Day weekend. and in the Mad River Valley today -- an annual tradition that combines crustaceans, melted butter, and fundraising. Judy Simpson explains.


The steam can been seen on route 100, signaling Fresh Maine Lobster for Lunch in Waitsfield ((Troy Kingsbury/Village Grocery & Deli Troy outside/ takes lobster out of pot 00:11:48:07" That looks pretty good!")) This is the 7th year that Troy Kingsbury has offered lobsters for lunch at the Village Grocery and Deli in Waitsfield. A tradition started when a local friend, Andy Mays, who is now a Lobsterman in Maine, and the whole lobster industry hit hard times. ((Troy Kingsbury/Village Grocery & Deli 00:02:15:00 "So I drove with his brother up there and bought a bunch of lobsters just to give him money, came back and we started having a lobster day here. 00:02:28:24 So it came out of charity for him and every year it has grown it is an annual right of passage now for us here at the Village Grocery But we try to build community by using lobster for other ideas we have here." 00:02:42:09 )) Andy returned the favor 4 years ago - after Tropical Storm Irene - he held a community lobster bake in Moretown to cheer people up. Thursday - Troy drove to South West Harbor Maine to pick up 650 lobsters, almost 900 pounds for this year's lobster fest. Andy charged Troy just 4.25 a pound, almost two dollars below the wholesale price. More than three thousand dollars worth. ((nat sot video)) In the past, the Lobster sale has raised 15 hundred dollars for the Mad River Valley Community Fund. Now the Lobster lunch partners with the Wheels for Warmth program which raises money to pay for heat for low income Vermonters. ((Troy again 00:02:56:00... " so for the first 12 people who brought in a set of four tires they would get a free lobster lunch for their generosity .)) Other local businesses will also get a boost from the feeding frenzy. ((Lori Klein/ Warren 00:13:48:00 "And also he did an amazing thing and offered a free lobster lunch to anyone who brings 50 dollars in receipts from Bridge Street every body knows how difficult a time we are having on Bridge street with the construction and people are not coming like they usually do and it is foliage, our biggest time of year so for him to do that is so generous he is just amazing. 00:14:09:16)) And if that wasn't enough,,,this will also be a fund raiser for the man who supplied the lobsters. You see Troy learned in March that Andy Mays has colon cancer. Troy hopes to raise a lot of money from these lobsters to send back to Andy as he fights the disease. ((00:15:52:10 Maine Lobster is a treat, best in the world 00:15:56:10)) Not only could folks purchase a cooked lobster lunch, they could buy live lobsters to take home for 7.99 a pound. ((Troy again 00:06:30:24" The amazing thing, we will sell all of this today this is all going to be sold."00:06:37:06)) It is a help yourself deal. ((JS SU 00:14:25:03" So in Vermont of course we have pick your own blueberries , pick your own strawberries and raspberries but now we have pick your own lobsters. "00:14:32:04)) How do you pick the perfect lobster? ((Vee Lynch/Moretown 00:19:40:05" I know these are fresh because they just got them out of the water yesterday , and they are lively, you don't want them with their claws hanging down or the tails flopping open and 00:19:49:24 I like them when they have hard shells because then they have got more meat in them then when they are soft shells they just look really healthy." 00:19:59:01)) Loading up on fresh Lobster, ((Vee again 00:20:37:08 "How many do we have? 5? you can never have too many lobster.

The fact that they get to come back home doesn't hurt either.


(((Eric Decker/"We flushed that game on Sunday afternoon. We moved on pretty quickly. It was a great week of practice. Everyone was flying around. Our mentality was the same as it was before. We're a very physical team. We're going to stay on the field until they kick us off."))) (((Tyler Higley/"It's huge to be home this week. We really got back to the fundamentals, blocking and tackling after last week. We didn't play the way we wanted to, but great atmosphere this weekend and we're really looking forward to getting back on track.")))


The Dartmouth football team has been living up to the expectations so far this season. The 3-0 Big Green host 3-0 Yale at 1:30 at Memorial Field. The Big Green have won three straight meetings against the Bulldogs, including last year's thrilling 38-31 comeback victory at the Yale Bowl. Dalyn Williams threw for a career-high 388 yards and scored the game-winning touchdown with 2:20 to play. Williams has picked up right where he left off last season throwing for 336 yards and setting a new school record with a 92 percent passing percentage.


(((Dalyn Williams/"The last couple of games, we've had pretty good drives and pretty good games, so we want to finish that out. We still have seven more, so we don't want to get complacent. We want to keep attacking each game, each opponent and try to come out with as much points as possible. Each day we want to get better. It's not ok, this guy is better today. We need him better tomorrow and make sure we can continue to have good games from everyone, because sooner or later everyone is going to have to add a piece to the puzzle.")))


Last night, Teevens wasn't in his office breaking down film, he was in New York City as a guest of Stephen Colbert on the Late Show. ((TRT: 11 ... OC: FOR BEING HERE)) Coach Teevens and former Dartmouth player and engineering student at the Thayer School of Engineering were on the Late Show last night to talk about the Mobile Virtual Player or MVP, the robotic tackling dummy created at Thayer that allows the Dartmouth team to have full speed contact drills in practice without hitting other players, lowering the chances of players sustaining head injuries during practice. Dartmouth is currently the only team using the robot, but Teevens said other colleges and professional teams have shown interest. The highlight on the interview was when Colbert donned a Dartmouth helmet and shoulder pads to take a crack at tackling the MVP himself.
