2 she's had it since 2009 and she's in an assisted living facility in buhl.

2 bob said it's hard to see his sweetheart suffer with a disease that has no cure.

2 it's all stage 4.

If people are familiar with cancer.

Alzheimer's is all stage 4, you don't recover, there's no one in remission and you just kind of waste away.

2 what were your school days like?

2 were they mostly in big schools with classes full of students your same age?

2 jeffrey dahdah joins us live in the studio to explain a different school environment and how it was on display this year... 2 2 how many rooms are in your child's school?

2 dozens?


2 well the gooding historical society reminded people of what it was like when a school had one room... 2 nats "it's the grand opening of the thorn creek school house, which is 105 years old."

2 or i guess you could call it a re-opening... 2 the gooding historical society spent the last seven years restoring the one-room school... 2 "it took us a long time to raise enough money and get the labor forces."

2 lorna bard is a director of the historical society... 2 they had to restore the inside... the outside... the windows and even the foundation... 2 but it was all worth it to them... 2 "i think our the next generations need to know how education started here in the state."

2 nats 2 shirley sabala went to the school when she was a child... 2 she spoke at the grand opening about her time there... 2 "really it was just like any other school."

2 just with eight grades in a room instead of one... 2 and going to the bathroom didn't require a hall pass but a walk through sage brush... 2 "and we had to watch out for rattle snakes and ticks."

2 among other differences... 2 the school hasn't taken students since nineteen forty seven... 2 before that it had a class of about eighteen students at a time... 2 and seeing it restored means a lot to those students... 2 "it's wonderful, it's a thrill, it really is and i want to thank all the people here that did his because it's 105 years old, it's history."

2 2 if you want to see it the historical society is only open through the end of the month... 2 after that you would have to make an appointment until they open back up again in april... 2 jeffrey dahdah kmvt local eleven news... 2 amy>> 2 2 next.... 2 there may be more health benefits to broccoli than you thought.

2 we'll tell you why you should be eating these greens... 2 amy>> 2's now time for our fish and game forecast..

2 there on your screen you can see the best times to go fishing here in our area based on lunar cycles.

2 2 four out of ten adults in the united states are now obese.

2 2 new numbers from the centers for disease control and prevention taking a closer look at the obesity epidemic..

2 finding nearly forty percent of adults and nearly twenty percent of kids between two and nineteen meet the clinical definition of obesity..

2 that up from thirty percent of adults and a tad less than fourteen percent of children considered obese between 19-99 and two thousand.

2 obesity is defined as a body mass index of thirty or more.

2 so - a six-foot-tall man weighing two-hundred-twenty-one pounds is considered obese, as is a five-foot-nine woman weighing two-hundred-three pounds..

2 some trends within the increase have health experts worried..

As obesity appears to be more prevalent in ethnic groups..

And as we age..

2 study authors say stemming this epidemic will have to be on both a personal and community level... 2 2 a daily dose of broccoli, cauliflower and sprouts may help prevent everything from arthritis to heart disease.

2 penn state researchers fed a broccoli supplemented diet to mice..

2 and as a result, the animals were able to better tolerate digestive issues..

2 the team believes this could be due to the fact that cruciferous vegetables -- such as broccoli and brussels sprouts..

2 contain a substance that promotes gut health.

2 and maintaining a healthy intestinal lining coupled with preventing leaky gut syndrome -- which exposes the body to toxins and pathogens.

2 could be the reason why their was a reduced risk of digestive issues and other ills.

2 further research is needed as animal studies don't always reflect what happens in humans..
