people came on site and people wantnt home delivered. " transamerica has sponsored the holiday meals program for seniors for 36 years. although it's now a home delivery prooram, there's no shortage of volunteers. organizers say there was a waiting list of those who wanted to help out on the holiday. some people can't have a traditional holiday meal -- lilie those with special food needs. that's the case for two eastern iowa kids -- where sitting in the lunchroom makes you stand out and feel different. kcrg-tv9's forrest saunders reports, that's where a school urse from mount vernon comes in. inside this washington elementary classroom, zay austerman is just like any other kindergartene r.full of smiles and ennrgy. nat kids eating but here, he stands out. the lunchroom. instead of worry free munching on the meal of the day, zay has to watch what he eats for fear a rare genetic condition could lead to serious health problems. zay's diet has his mother constantly w wrried about
all day and not having control of that was really nerve wracking." 39:55-01 zay and his younger sister, ellie, suffer from what's called fen-ul-ke- toe-nu-re-uh or pku. the kids' bodies struggle breaking down an amino acid found in protein. eat too much, the acid becomes troubbe. "it beginssto build up in the brain and then they become mentallyandicapped." 39:20-24 it means the kids have to eat special and very expensivee foodss breads, cheeses, milks that lack the amino acid. meat is a big no go. this was the family turkey this year. "he's different. he's always going to be different." cover 41:22-25 and differences can make it hard for a child to fit in, especially during a social time like lunch. but that's where this woman comes in. "so today, we're having g gilled cheese," 26:48-50 missy hauser is the school nurse, but she's also zay's lunch lady. each day she makes meals for him that use the special ingredients zay can eat.
mea@s, but hauser goes above and beyond. she's learned the ins and outs of pku and offers a tating menu,,ith new additions every so often. "we'd do it for any kid that comes through the door. if he needs a special type of food, then that's what we're going to give him,"32:27-33 what's more, hauser makes re zay gets hi meal like everyone else, standing in line with his friends. mething she sss is invaluable. "wwjust want kids to feel, normal when they're here. especially for some kids, this is their most normal place that they are." 36:28-36 zay may know he's not like others but hauser's effort helps ensure he doesn't feel thatway. his mother sayst makes all the difference. "from what i hear from thh teachers aa the staff here at school, he is joy filled. he loves school. that's huge. he gets to participate, just like every other kid." 42:07-14 and that's no different whether zay's here or here . that was forrest saunders reporting. in the united states, p-k-u occurs in one in every 10 to 15 thousand children. most cases are detected

farmer in carlisle. stay with tv-9. its---- welcome to the agribusiness report, i'm david geiger. this year turned out to be one of the biggest production years for iowa ever. but like every year, there were highs and lows for farmers. in carlisle, david geiger with the agribusiness report followed farmer corey goodhue from planting to harvest. marcc 17 goodhue says, "you spend alll your money and you have no idea what you'll raise with the weather. because at the end of the day, weather's really what drives your productivity. we try and drive, especially nitrogen, because soil's a hoorible place to store nitrogen. so that starts with what we do pre-plant. this machine that's behind us, we use to apply our nitrogen, phophorus, potassium. so we have nitrogen from ammonia, and we e as small amouout
and we stabilize it with nserve. you never want to put all your nitrogen in one spot at one time. just too much risk." april 15 goodhue saas, "m"mnaging that weather risk this time of year is important. but yeah, it's that balance between getting the most growing degree units, and not planting oo early that you losos it. right now conditions are gorgeous, but it's been all over the board. i would say this is an early spring, the conditions look real good. o, it can gooboth week will bring for weather." june 29 goodhue says, "in a two day span, we got, four inches of rain, but everyone upstream of us, we were seein reports of aaywhere from six to eight inches. and that just all has to come downstream. all this water is bottlenecked by redrock. so, redrock has to protect ottumwa and everyone downstream. well, i think the worst thing is when you have a field of corn that's six, seven foot tall. we'll probably lose
off of it in time. and so, we have a tremendous investment already here. you know, we've basiially put all of our money into it and now most of the crop wont make it. it's like a small business that opens, and has all the inventory and it never sells and they can't get rid of the inventory." august 11 goodhue says, "the beans behind us were probably planted the 20th of july. . ight now we need to cover the ground as a method of weed control. you know, a crop is your least expensive wee control as well as the hope that you'll raise something. the cost of putting in ttis late crop is usually pretty low. it makes a season drag on, you know like today we worked on getting the stuff ready for harvest, but now we're out trying to spray six-inch tall beans ttat were planted a few weeks ago." september 30 goodhue says, "we've had an awesome august and july for growing late planted beans. very consistent rainfall, even through september we've had real niie, consistentt
it's late rains that make late soybeans. and the original planted beans, the ones that made it, just barely made it, and so their yield was significantly impacted by that w wter damage. but anywhere where the beans are ripe, we want to get them because you'll see them dry down and shatter and hopefully the late-planted beansnswill make it, even the first of november before we harvest them." november 2 goodhue says, "we got all of our normal planted crops harvested now. well, it pay off. you know, for a cheap ground cover. i've bee really impressed with the ground that didn't flood. with the yield we saw there. if this crop comes in as big as it has in iowa, will that'd be a big challengg. how can you arket a crop at a loss? so, that's a big concern as we look at this last year and into next year." about six hundred
flooded and all the late season beans they planted were harvested. thanks for joining us here and i hope you had a great thanksgiving. for the agribusiness report, , 'm david geiger. trt 4.02 oc for the agribusiness report, i'm david geiger. catching a big fish can be quite exciting, and may even need some extra strength. or in this case, it took two hands and a ball of energy to hold on to this foreign fish. more catches of the day coming up in this week's big ol' fish.
