C1 3 ready to get to work.

What will that work include?

Hear from governor-elect andy beshear a week before he takes office.

Plus...senator rand paul's plan to tackle student loan debt.

And... taps from file pkg zr found wreaths across america.

This year, camp nelson able to more than double the number of wreaths laid at heroes' graves.

Good evening.

Welcome in.

I'm tom kenny.

And i'm veronica jean seltzer.

A change is on the way.

Tomorrow, we'll finally see the sun again.

Remember that?

But there is still some cold weather ahead.

It is december after all.

Meteorologist justin roth is in the weather center tonight with a first look at the forecast.

### weather animation short weather the weather will stay calm on and sunny for thursday with a weak cold front moving through thursday evening bringing some shower chances overnight and into friday.

Beyond that the best chances for rain look to move in late sunday into monday but models are still working out the kinks on the timing of this system.

Stay tuned!

Tonight: partly cloudy with breezy conditions, lows in the low 30s wednesday: partly sunny skies and breezy, highs in the low 50s thursday: mostly sunny skies, with highs in the upper 40s low 50s friday: partly sunny, with highs in the upper 40s saturday: mostly sunny, with highs in the mid 40s sunday: mostly cloudy, showers developing late, highs in the mid 50s.

Because of the cold temperatures...the city of lexington has activated its city of lexington has activated its winter weather plan.

C1 3 that means homeless shelters will make extra room to get people out of the cold.

Lextran will also offer free rides to shelters.

The city activates its plan when the low is expected to fall below 32 degrees.

The plan will run through thursday.

A week from today, kentucky will have a new governor.

Governor-elect andy beshear will be sworn in next tuesday.

For the first time since the election, abc 36's christy bollinger sat down with beshear to find out how he plans to keep his campaign promises.

"what kind of governor do you want to be?"

"i want to be a caring, a thoughtful, productive governor for all kentuckians.

Whether people voted for me or not i want to do a good job by them."

Next week, governor-elect andy beshear will be sworn-in as the state's highest- ranking officer.

I asked him what comes next after that day..

"in the first seven days that i'm governor we're going to reorganize the board of education to ensure that it's members support public education.

We're gonna restore the voting rights to all non-violent felons that have served out their terms over 140,000 people.

We're gonna rescind the medicaid waiver which would remove healthcare from 95,000 kentuckians and we're gonna save about 200,000 million dollars while we're doing it."

Beshear is an advocate for public education...long before he ran for governor....and before making promises to teachers during the campaign.

"a $2,000 across the board raise is gonna be in my first budget.

That's to address a teacher shortage that is hurting our students but that's also because i believe no teacher should be living in poverty or relative poverty by doing work that we desperately need them to do."

And he's promised to protect teachers' pensions.

But how is he going to do all this?

And, who's going to pay for it?

"there's never gonna be enough money for everything we need to do.

So let's lead with our values.

Mine start with public education.

We're gonna do what needs to be done to move our education system forward, to give opportunity for all our kids to make sure we're not failing one of them."

Despite beshear's vocal support of public education....he's been criticized for sending his own children to private school.

"my kids got an opportunity that all kids should that's to go to preschool.

So my kids in preschool went to a school that my family fell in love with so they're gonna finish out elementary there.

My son is going to be going to a public middle school next year."

Beshear says teachers have been mistreated the last four years... and he doesn't want to look back, but instead, move forward.

At the state capitol..

Christy bollinger, abc 36 news.

U.s. senator rand paul wants to allow people to tap into their retirement to pay off their student loan debt.

The kentucky republican is introducing federal legislation allowing people to take up to $5,250 from their 401-k or i-r-a each year tax and penalty free.

Americans collectively owe about $1.5 trillion in student loans.

Pulaski county's deputy judge executive was back on the job this morning... hours after being charged with a d-u-i.

According to state police..

49-year-old dan price was arrested around 8- 30 last night... after a trooper spotted his car swerving on east highway 80.

State police say price smelled of alcohol and failed a field sobriety test.

A clark county foster mom faces a child abuse charge.

Winchester police say she's accused of pouring hot chocolate on her foster baby.

According to officers, the mom claims she doesn't remember anything from that day.

Abc 36's monica harkins has more in our top story at 11.

The 10 month old baby....had scalding hot chocolate poured on its head..police say.

The winchester sun reports the baby has serious burns to its head and face ...and at last report...was in serious condition at cincinnati children's hospital.

Investigators say 33-year-old ashley neal poured hot chocolate on the baby saturday afternoon in a fast food restaurant.

But the 'how' of the crime...gets a little confusing.

Neal says she didn't remember what happened...and neal's husband reportedly had his back turned at the time, according to police.

The arrest citation says, police looked over the surveillance video at this mcdonald's on southland drive to see for themselves what happened.

Officers say the video shows neal with the baby in a carrier against her chest and she is seen pouring a cup of hot chocolate on the baby's head...she then takes a few steps and attempts to fall, bracing herself with the same hand that poured the drink.

Police say neal was caring for two other foster children and two biological children.

All have been removed from her care.

Neal's bond was set at 25 hundred dollars cash.

She bailed out of jail on saturday, the same day as her arrest.
