"we've heard from the parents that its really helped build confidence in the kids, it has helped the kids develop a sense of well being and responsibility," jordan said. "they kind of go in stages where they'll just kind of start out brushing and then pretty soon they can ride by themselves, so its really helped with confidence." she said she started the ranch as a way to give back. "i grew up with horses and we spent a lot of time competing with horses as a family. god put it on my

to what we are trying to do to our community. we are trying to help immigrants esepcially refugee immigrants get away from violent war torn areas like syria to become better people. people are coming from syria to better themselves to get out of a violent area and nescassarily to bring harm to us." jessica rae: bell stated they are well equipped to handle refugees should they be allowed in iowa. jessica rae: all state agencies in iowa have been ordered to halt work on resettling syrian refugees. but one iowa group says it has no plans to stop offering aid to refugees coming to iowa. the director of the iowa international center says the united nations and federal government are in control of allowing refugees into the country. and if syrian refugees make their way to iowa... they'll still be happy to help them. judy it's not only welcoming refugees and doing the right thing, it's welcoming wonderful members of iowa's community. the center provides language classes

" this is our first christmas picture" images full of love and smiling family members hang throughout mone aye's house. but something as simple as a photograph -- a tangible memory -- used to be a luxury for her. this picture was the only one she ever had growing up. she was born in a refugee camp in thailand ... and would spend summers worrying if she would be bombed. she saw that worry come true when she was just five years old. "my aunt just pulled me by the hand and we just ran. we had to run up on the mountain, hiding by the cliff. looking down the hill we can see our house was burning." at the age of ninteen ... mone and her family came to iowa. but it wasn't a quick getaway. it took more than a year of interviews ... paperwork ... background and medical checks through the united nations to travel as a legal refugee.

"i feel the same way for syria where they're trying to look for a safe place, a better place for their future, for their kids, for the women, for everybody. just because of one fear that somebody created for them, now everyone's turning them down." she says the tactics of isis don't reflect what most refugees long for ... and refugees shouldn't be turned away as a whole. "i just feel like it's not right. anyone can do a bad thing, anyone can go to a church and blow something up." one year in the united states can change anybody's life ... but seven years of hard work and dedication to a better future led mone to the best achievement of all -- citizenship. "i finally have a home now. before i felt like a ghost, like nobody knows me, nobody recognized me as their citizen." iowa has given mone endless opportunities she didn't have before -- opportunities she can give to her four year old daughter, gabby, who will be able to take as many pictures as she wants. jessica rae: mone also works in community outreach for the

out the siouxland area. for more on this... we are joined like always by dennis morrice from k-l- e-m radio. good morning, dennis. dennis: good morning jessica. despite low agricultural commodity prices, land still seems to be in high demand with buyers willing to spend near record levels. at a sioux county land auction held last friday near hospers, a tract of 154 acres sold at $17,300 an acre. when you calculate that, it equals to two million, 664 thousand, 200 dollars. jim klein of remsen was the auctioneer for the sale. he says land sold is of very productive. " (as said) : "it was a 154 of 99-point-one-five, which is rather unusual. and what's that is, there was that had 100, which is almost never seen". dennis: klein says the land was sold to a local neighboring
6:37 am
property adjacent to the land that was for sale. the auctioneer says there was a lot of interest in the agricultural real estate, as it had several bidders at the start of the sale. jessicrae: dennis, was this farmland sale a new record price in sioux county? dennis: no... jessica, the price per acre is not a record for sioux county land sales, as a parcel of land sold for more than $20,000 an acre nearly two years ago, but at that time, commodity prices for both grain and livestock were higher. klein says with today's lower prices for grain and livestock, and the outlook showing a continuation of declining farm income, the expectation would be that land values would also decline. "sot) klein3 :43 outcue: "...going to be a purchaser". (as said): "actually, in the last probably month to month and a half, we have actually seen the land prices increase. and i don't quite
6:38 am
understand it yet. plus, we have also seen our livestock, especially the cattle, have taken quite a hit recently. one of the stories i hear is that the bankers arof course willing to lend money, and that the rate of return on your investment at a bank is not very good, so they are putting it into land. and as far as the farmers are concerned, this type of land does not come around very often at all. and when they have a chance to buy something of this quality...they're going to be a purchaser". dennis: jessica, as you know, sioux county is a leader in livestock and poultry production, and klein believes in livestock and poultry production, and klein believes there may be two reasons for the high demand for land. one: farmers just may want to expand their operations. and two, farmers have a need for additional land so to have somewhere to dispose manure. jessica, jim klein told me this was the highest price land that he has had a role in
