coming up on tonight's news.. turning an old mill building into a place to make things...... plus... we are just days away from the and final debate. between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.....


Entrepreneurs and people who like to use their hands will have a new space Claremont New Hampshire. Congresswoman Annie Kuster toured the "makerspace" building Friday-- which is an old manufacturing mill on Main Street from the early 1900's. For a monthly fee-- community members will be able to rent space in the 10-thousand square foot building to make anything from jewelry to 3d design.


(( Jeremy KATZ/ TwinState MakerSpaces : "We want to embrace the heritage of Claremont, which is a community that has been making for well over 150 years, this was one of the original seats of the American industrial revolution and we want to honor that.")) (( Rep. Annie KUSTER/ D-NH : "for every manufacturing job you spin off seven more jobs in the economy and so i'm excited about bringing new entrepreneurs to Claremont.")) A 250-thousand grant from the Northern Border Regional Commission helped make the project possible. It should be up and running-- with makers-- early next year.


Donald Trump was in Portsmouth New Hampshire today-- one of several events just day before the third and final presidential debate. Brook Silva Braga reports.


At rallies both in New Hampshire and Maine Saturday, Donald Trump responded to a growing number of reports he improperly touched women... by saying they were not only untrue but intentionally dishonest. (SOT Donald Trump 15:20:53) The election is being rigged by corrupt media pushing false allegations and outright lies in an effort to elect Hillary Clinton president. The Clinton campaign responded to the rigged election comments with a statement: The American electoral system is free, fair and open" and votingshould be encouraged, not dismissed or undermined because a candidate is afraid hes going to lose. Clintons running mate tried to use Trumps words to motivate democratic voters in Florida. (Tim Kaine 17:56:59) We have to make sure that the margin that he loses by is so big and so clear and so powerful and so unmistakable that when he stands up and says poor me and it was rigged against me no one will believe him The latest round leaked emails from Wikileaks include what appear to be transcripts of paid speeches Clinton gave investment bank Goldman Sachs in one she said the people who know the most about regulating Wall Street are Wall Street bankers themselves.
