"we believe they were the adult version of the wet wipes that are being marketed as flushable and disposable when they really are not. doing a little more research, and talking with the city's staff, and administration, it's something that's happened in the past." north liberty's street superintenden t says this has become a real problem in the city in the past couple of years. he says they need to be careful of what they are flushing, and get their backflow preventers serviced annually. linn county supervisors are now considering adding a senior center to existing building plans. on monday, linn county

to the state's general fund and the iowa veterans fund. "when racial disparity and all of its causes are eliminated justice will be achieved...applau se woo applause" the chief justice of the iowa supreme court wants to end racial disparities among iowans who are incarcerated. last year, chief justice cady said iowa incarcerated nine-point- four percent of the state's african american men. he said that was the third highest percentage in the u-s. linn, johnson and scott counties are working with georgetown university on juvenile court pilot programs to eliminate racial disparity. kcrg-tv9's jill kasparie reports on the johnson county program called ladders. nats of dancing it's not hard

kids at the dream center. "here at the dream center we have homework support, we have mentoring, we have a performing arts academy. " frederick newell, who started the non-profit, says it's all about education and giving youth more opportunities. "we are creating programs here that kind of help with making sure people don't get involved in the system." his organization isn't the only one striving to help kids. the ladders program is a team effort in johnson county that includes law enforcement, the school district, the juvenile court system and the county. it focuses on the offense of disorderly conduct, which often comes with fighting. instead of getting charged - kids go through the program, which includes a mental health evaluation, community service and a writing assignment to think about their actions. "so hopefully the goal is to modify that behavior so we don't see those juveniles again and at the end to keep them from committing offenses that would get them incarcerated as an adult. " just this week the iowa city police department expanded the program to include another charge - fifth degree theft - in hopes of

system. "7:59:16 i don't know if we'll ever solve the disparity, but i definitely think we can make it better." newell says ladders is a good step, but says more more needs to be done. "8:20:30- i just felt like if somebody would hold onto them and tell them what their potential is then maybe that in themselves, a change in mindset would help our youth not to get into things that would lead them into a system like the criminal justice system." tv-9's jill kasparie with that story. iowa city police say if students already have a prior criminal offense on their record or if they've been through ladders, they will get charged with those two crimes. the chief justice says the johnson county pilot project has reduced the number of school referrals to juvenile court by 61-percent. as we mentioned one of those programs trying to eliminate racici disparity is in linn county. the cedar rapids school district, police, juvenile courts, and big brothers big sisters rolled that one out this school

they're focusing on finding 25 mentoto for african american children who could face a troubled future. "right now we have five active matches meeting out in the community doing things together. the majority of them got matched in november or december so we haven't had quite enough time to see what difference that has made, but we are hearing positive things." school leaders refer students to big brothers, big sisters based on their absences, grades and other patterns of concern. o'brien-may says the idea is for the students to work with mentors to interrupt that pattern and turn things around. family and friends in eastern iowa are mourning the loss of man who was killed during an attempted robbery in memphis, tennessee. police say 48-year-old lonnie ludvigson died from a gunshot wound saturday afternoon. they believe someone shot and killed him while trying to rob him. his obituary says ludvigson was a trucker for an internet site. he graduated from edgewood colesburg high school and served
