clinton is trying to reach younger iowa voters. she hosted an event at the university of iowa campus with singer demi lovato. one u-i freshman says he's trying to decide between clinton and bernie sanders. " "i think part of the reason demi is here so she can get some of the college vote, or some of the college vote or younger people to come to her events." " " "i'm hoping that each and every one of you will get interested, get involved, be part of this process. you know people in iowa are being watched, not just around the country, but around the world." " one of the central messages last night was to get out and caucus. other celebrities will join clinton on the campaign trail. sports icon billie jean king and actress jamie lee curtis will join hillary prior to february 1st. coe college political science professor bruce nesmith says celebrities can get voters to an event when they wouldn't come before.

would get you in the door and you'd hear the candidate's message." " nesmith says celebrities can make a little difference in a very close race. but historically he says these types of endorsements don't make a huge difference. clinton is among the candidates running several ads in iowa with claims the tv-9 and gazette fact check team already looked at. like this one... "the first lady who helped get health care for 8 million kids." we first checked this claim in an ad that aired this past august. clinton is referring to the children's health insurance program, which passed in 1997. she was the first lady at that time. so she did not introduce, vote on or sign the law - but lobbied hard for it. at the time, senator ted kennedy, who sponsored the bill, said it would not have passed if not for clinton. that's why we again give the claim an 'a'. clinton and her democratic opponents bernie sanders and martin o'malley will be in des moines monday night

6:31 am
replacement nurses in the workforce. that means the total number of job openings for nurses is more than a million by 2022. kcrg-tv9's forrest saunders joins us at the desk to take a closer look at the shortage. forrest, why are nurses so critical? obviously, a lot of reasons. one of them, they save lives. get this, a recent study showed having more than one nurse per bed at a hospital may decrease patient mortality after general surgery by 20%. no wonder hospitals far and near need nurses morgan henkel has been a nurse for about a year and a half.morgan got into the business because she's all about caring for others. "i just really like helping people. i've always been the type to put people before myself.
6:32 am
coming years, she won't be short of people to care for as demand for her profession continues to increase due to the shortage. the american association of colleges of nursing points to a number of causes. three of the biggest: -limited nursing faculty at schools, meaning not enough nurses are being produced -on top of that, many nurses are nearing retirement age -plus, some are flat out leaving the profession because they're over worked. "so we've got growth and opportunity." mary brobst is mercy's chief nursing officer. according to her, nursing need seems like it's almost everywhere at mercy. the hospital is expanding in many areas that will need to staff more rns. that includes: outpatient care. home care. clinics. pediatrics. and cardiology. to help, mercy is hosting a job fair with a emphasis on nursing, later this month. "we'd love to have people that are interested. not only people who are currently either registered or certified as a health care professional, but those who are interested. i think about high school students."mor gan will appreciate the help. in some places, extra hours and shifts have become an industry standard as the shortage gets even bigger.

court heard the arguments in the case yesterday. gas prices in iowa are in down 10 cents a gallon from last month and may be trending lower. this is helping the budgets for businesses and organizations that rely on cars. gas prices are dropping primarily because of an oversupply of crude oil. a long period of high oil prices led to more production as drillers found new places to look for oil. the u-s also improved oil drilling technologies, and that helped add even more oil to the global market. lifting sanctions against iran will put even more oil in the market. cedar rapids owns 685 vehicles and more than 500 pieces of power equipment that use gasoline or diesel fuel. from july 1st through december, the city saved 634-thousand dollars compared to the year before. pierson's flower shop has a couple of delivery vans that make about 50 deliveries a day. right now, the business is saving 750 to 1000 dollars a
