The incoming president is expected to sign a series of executive orders reversing some of president trump's policies.

Unlike past inaugurations, the national mall will be mostly empty for today's ceremony due in part to security concerns following the assault on the capitol.

"the only thing we have to fear is fear itself" president-elect biden is expected to call for unity in his speech after being sworn in by chief justice john roberts.

So help me god.

Less people are expected to attend this year's inauguration due to security threats and covid-19, but more people may decide to watch the presidential transition from home.

In 2017, over 30 million viewers tuned in for president trump's inauguration.

With a combination of covid-19 and the most tallied votes by americans in 2020, president elect joe biden's viewership will be record breaking according to forbes.

News 12 asked folks in chattanooga if they plan to watch the inauguration.

Yes i plan on watching the inauguration.

With the coronavirus pandemic still in full effect joe biden's plan could have impact your wallet.

President elect biden outlined policies related to taxes, social security, and coronavirus relief.

The upcoming president is also considering increasing the minimum wage to around 15 dollars.

Leaders of blue ridge wealth planners says a higher minimum wage can lead to job loss and businesses shutting down.

"what you're going to have is a large impact to small businesses here who are going to have to increase the pay of those workers substantially.

Again, it's not an argument whether they should be paid more or not it's just when you have that as the new minimum, it's going to put a lot more strain on the cash flow of a business."

Biden's policies also offers a tax incentive for families with children, increasing benefits for social security and widowers, and offering the nation it's third round of stimulus checks.

Over 750 soldiers in the tennessee national guard will be in washington d-c today for joe biden's inauguration.

President trump issued a number of pardons on his final day in office.

One of those pardons has a local connection.

Darrell frazier was convicted of running cocaine from los angeles to chattanooga over a 6 month period between 19-88 and 19-89.

He agreed to a plea deal and still got 30 plus years.

Frazier has already served almost 30.

His mother joyce johnson petitioned the president for clemency for her son.

According to her, frazier founded the joe johnson tennis foundation.

Jennifer jones, who lives on preserve drive off highway 58, posted a video to facebook, showing the owl perched on top of a house in the residential neighborhood.

Now, the word is out, and this snowy owl has attracted a lot of fans.

The travis family of rhea county was in florida, when they heard about him.

They rushed home to see the bird that's not supposed to be here.

"no, its an artic bird that has to have cold air and water to survive., i guess.

I've never heard of one being so far down this way.

So, it's amazing" while snowy owls are rare in this region, there have been confirmed sightings of the bird in georgia and tennessee.

There are only 28 thousand left in the world.

Bofta yimam reports from washington as we cover the nation.

Pkg) just after midnight on president trump's last day in office, the white house announced he had issued 73 pardons and commuted the sentences of 70 other federal offenders.

"everyday we get stronger, they get weaker..."

The most prominent name on the list is former white house chief strategist steve bannon.

Bannon is accused of defrauding donors in an effort to build a private wall along the mexican border.

His trial was due to begin in may.

Two rappers also made the cut.

Lil wayne was pardoned.

He faced a prison sentence of up to 10 years for possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon.

And kodak black was sentenced to 46 months in federal prison for making a false statement in order to buy a firearm.

That sentence has been commuted.

Despite pleas by some of the alleged capitol rioters... "i think we all deserve a pardon."

None was granted that request.

Nor was joe exotic...despite fans, and a stretch limo waiting outside the federal medical center in texas where he's being held.

The 'tiger king' was not let out of a 22-year sentence for plotting the murder of zookeeper rival, carole baskin..

"he's been in jail 2.5 years.

He's innocent."

Also notably not on the list... no family members, no rudy giuliani-the president's attorney... and despite once claiming "the absolute right" t pardon himself, the president apparently decided against it.

Bofta yimam, cbs news, washington one of those pardons president trump made on his final full day in office has a local connection.

Darrell frazier was convicted of running cocaine from los angeles to chattanooga over a 6 month period between 19-88 and 19-89.

According to her, frazier founded the joe johnson tennis foundation.

She says, the foundation teaches tennis to hundreds of children each summer at local recreation centers.

In coronavirus news - people in dalton are expressing concerns as the city continues to be a hotspot.

Over the last 2 weeks, whitfield county has reported more than 14-hundred new cases.

A vaccination site was opened at the dalton convention center on monay.

That's caused covid-19 testing to take a back seat.

Members of the northwest justice coalition aren't okay with that.

"the lack of covid testing, because the department of health has switched to vaccinations, to get testing is very difficult and we have a team of volunteers ready to do so.

They will not provide the funding or the tests for us to continue free testing."

The city of dalton expects to vaccinate 7-hundred people today.

The hamilton county health department reported 4 more deaths from covid-19 on tuesday.

That raises our death toll to 330.

There were also 342 new cases.

Our number of active cases is way down.

There are a little less than 33- hundred.

That means hamilton county schools should be able to resume in-person learning next week.

They will announce the schedule later today.

178 people are in the hospital, 51 of them are in the i-c-u.

New this morning - the chattanooga fire department worked a fire at hamilton place mall this morning.

A massage chair outside of j-c penney caught fire around 2:45.

Firefighters believe the fire was an electrical issue or a malfunction of the chair itself.

They had it extinguished the fire within minutes of arriving.

The part of the mall where the chair caught fire had significant smoke and water damage.

Police say one person was shot just after 1 tuesday afternoon.

It happened in the 12-hundred block of grove street.

Investigators taped off the front of a small strip mall.

According to police, one person was shot and their injuries are not life threatening.

If you have any information about this shooting, please contact chattanooga police.

Chattanooga police confirm the locations of 2 different shootings that happened monday night.

The first happened in the 16-hundred block of southern street around 8:45 a 40-year-old male was dropped off at a local hospital with a gunshot wound.

His injuries are not life threatening.

In community news - the chambliss center for children has teamed up with another local, non profit organization - isaiah 117 house- to provide assistance for children who are waiting for placement in foster care.

The organizations say that finding families who are willing, and able, to foster children during a pandemic has been even more challenging than in years past.

For this reason, the two organizations have decided to join forces to provide a safe place for children to stay -while they await a foster care placement.

Officials say when children are removed from their homes they typically have to wait inside an office at the department of children services.

"you are sitting in an office; phones are ringing, faxes are coming in, people are talking about lunch and you don't feel like people see you or hear you.

We want to create a space where we see you, we hear you, what do you need?

That's what we can provide with an isaiah house."

This will be the first isaiah 117 house in our area and both organizations are hopeful that this new environment will make the transition to foster care a less anxious one for many hamilton county children.

As we cover the community - the humane educational society had their first adoption at their new building on monday.

To celebrate, workers lined the halls wearing party hats and throwing up confetti as "saturn" got to go to his forever home.

A total of 3 dogs and 2 cats were adopted on their first day in the new building.

They are thankful to the community for making this momentus day possible.
