the better the presdiential candidate does in an election... but that could change this year. there have actually been studies done to show halloween masks can predict future presidents. there's a theory in the costume business the winner in every election since 19- 80 has been the candidate whose masks were most popular. but the owner of halloween express in west des moines say there could be a shake-up this time around. brian olesen, "i think we get a split with donald trump of favoritism or dislike. many people are coming in who plan on wearing this as a joke or gag against donald trump." jessica rae: and if you want to be donald trump for halloween this year... you better hurry, trump masks and wigs are the hottest costumes in the country... and are selling out quickly.

jessica rae: ideal weather conditions have
6:34 am
to harvest corn at a faster than normal pace, with the latest weekly crop report indicating nearly three-fourths of the state's corn crop has already been harvested. with more on that... i'm joined as always by dennis morrice joins us this morning from klem radio. good morning dennis... dennis: good morning jessica. as you indicated,
6:35 am
this year's corn harvest has been ahead of schedule, nearly 12 days ahead of last year and three days ahead of the five-year average. iowa state university extension crop specialist joel dejong tells me many farmers have either finished, or are very close to being done with the harvest. "(as said): "i would think we are probably two-thirds to three-quarters done in this (plymouth) county also. so, a lot of producers i have talked to have a day or two left. i think i have talked to some that say maybe they have a week left. but we have made great progress, and a lot of those corn fields really have disappeared in the last week, very nicely." dennis: dejong says the yields have also been good, averaging near or above 200 bushels per acre. (as said): "you know its interesting, we've seen some occasional reports of less than 200 (bushels per acre). but, almost everybody i have visited with talks 200 or better...220...210...230. you hear almost everything. i have seen some hybrid plots in some nearby counties that actually averaged about 280 (bushels per acre), you know, with the short plots. that's probably not a whole field yield.
6:36 am
but, there might be one or two of those out there somewhere. its always hard just in conversation to find out what the real number is. but, you got to remember, we've never ever had a year, in plymouth county, where the average corn yield, according to the u-s-d-a, has been over 200 bushels. so, let's get to 200 bushels first, and find out where we are from there." dennis: dejong says the warm, dry and windy days of october have also helped reduce corn moisture levels so many farmers have not needed to artificially dry their corn. he says many corn moisture levels have been reported between 14 and 17 percent moisture, allowing farmers to directly store their grain, which has saved farmers thousands of dollars. jessica rae: dennis, are farmers taking nice weather and preparing their fields for next year? dennis: jessica, many farmers are doing just that. several have been doing some fall tillage, and other farmers have been baling their corn stalks into round bales for feed and bedding. still, other farmers have been hauling manure to their fields for
6:37 am
next year's fertilizer. however, as of last week, dejong says soil temperatures are still a bit too warm for farmers to apply any anhydrous ammonia fertilizer. jessica rae: thanks dennis for your report. we'll see you again next week. dennis: thank you, jessica. jessica rae: the iowa state volleyball tournament is now just a week away. chris joins us with highlights from the tournament trail. chris palmquist--"good morning everybody. in just a week, we'll know which 8 teams from class 1 a and 2 a will be playing at the state volleyball tournament in cedar last night, four western valley conference teams squared off in regional quarterfinals. we'll start in 2- a...number 12 lawton bronson looking to go 3-0 against mvao this year. but it's the rams that come out firing...leslie gosch...goes cross court with one and it's 4-0. then bailey wessling serves up the ace...mvao is out to a 7-1 lead. but here come the

butting heads with propery owners.. south sioux city has passed a new ordinance for rental inspections that will take effect in march. with the new ordinance, property owners must follow a checklist of maintence codes. the rental inspection board emphasizes the importance of safety and healthy living environments. "we're concerned about the health and safety of the occupants," said randy meyer, chairman of the rental inspection board. "and we're going to go in and make sure there are no violations". jessica rae: members of the ordinance board feel the updated dwelling law will create a safer environment for occupants. this new ordinance for rental inspections was created under the leadership of a diverse group of south sioux city citizens including the mayor, landowners, a homeowner, as well as attorneys and paralegals, giving a voice for every group affected by the new law. jessica rae: a donut shop in west des moines shut down five weeks ago because the owner-- lou king, broke his hip.
6:42 am
he's the one who gets up in the middle of the night to make all the donuts. so with him sidelined, the business couldn't continue. but it was time to get back in business! all the regulars were there, including some people who've been customers of lou's for 20- plus years. " as you're aware, i'm here and today's his first day, so i feel good. i hope he feels the same was i feel. we're just exuberant that it's open. they're just the friendliest people inside and we really missed him while they were closed . the customer's loyalty that i've had over the years has been tremendous. this kind of proves it. " jessica rae: lou king bought the store back in 1975. lou's pretty tough.... he's had a broken hip before. and he lost part of his left leg in the vietnam war. jessica rae: hundreds of thousands of kids will be knocking at doors this halloween, eating candy by the bagfull. but that sweet tooth can lead to dental trouble. according to the centers for disease control, 1 in 4 kids under age 5 already has cavities. and the american dental
