chris and nicole, the members of the university of iowa's muslim student association are saying it's a relief to know there's a safe area for them to go. with so many students enrolled at iowa, it can be hard for muslim students to find a quietetrea. students in the m-s-a group reached out to the university asking for the space. after a month of planning they found and renovated two rooms for prayer. one for women and one for men. students say this is not only a stepeporward for them, but one for the university as well. "if there are other religious groups that need that space to pray at i think that the university will see a need for them then they'll be fine with them and i think that's a good thing for everyone on campus" university officials say they are willing to accommodate any group with their needs. all they need to do is ask. the msa is holding an inaugural ceremony tonight at the iowa theater inside the imu at 5 pm. live in the newsroom, brea love, kcrg-tv9. in a tv-9 follow-up this morning.. a former correctional officer at the anamomoa state

5:04 am
there's also a possibility of adding a behavior health center in the future. "we're looking at those things, bringing the partners to the table, we're going to have a meeting later on in february where everybody who has been dowv to san antonio is going to come together and say, at did you see? what stood out to you? what seems like a pressing need here? what seems like a great idea we could model here? what might that look like and then what are some of those initial action steps? " county leaders say they've been working hard to comomt mental illness oveve the past couple of years, but there's more work to do. a man who was serving 50 years in the coralville prison has died. he was there for the murder of a mashalltown woman. the iowa department of corrections says 42-year- old matthew irving died of natural causes. officials say he collapsed in hospice care. irving had been diagnosed with cancer that spread to his lungs and bones. he was convicted in 2014 for the death of 55- year-old rebecca hall. the election paperwork for a franklin county sheriff's deputy has gone up in flames. chief dedety linn larson had the papers,

5:06 am
"the question that our lawsuit poses that we think should be very easy to answer is, if you can't trust the lottery to pay you in full when you win, why would you ever play?" tipton was sentenced in september to 10 years in prison for two counts of lottery fraud in iowa. waterloo school leaders say they're disappointed that they have to start all over after voters rejected a major bond vote this week. the district says it wants to hear from voters s o said "no" to the $47 million dollar measure. administrators say they spent years crafting those plans.

early bird...now i don't have to take early bird but i still get that extra class i wanted " the change also means every cedar rapids high school will sync hours and start and end at the same time. the school district is also considering other changes to the schedule for the next school year. that includes starting classes later on every monday so teachers could use e e time for professional development. schools would provide supervision for students who arrive early on those days. but after feedback from parents and teachers at a meeng last week, the school board tabled that decision. businesses in eastern iowa are looking forward to a bright economic future. for these companies in eastern iowa standing out among the crowd remains a

pressure. but when it comes to the numbers and your heart health, how low w ould you go? that's the question researchers attempted to answer in a landmark study some cardiologists are calling the most important blood pressure studin 40 years. martie salt has more. tonja filmore has always paid attention to her health.as a county correctional sergeant, being physically and mentally fit was always a must for such a demanding job. "having to respond and get into altercations with inmates." the gym was always her go-to plan for staying in shape. but two years ago tonja learned her fitness s asses alone were not enough to keep her healthy. "what they told me was that i did the entire class and justassed out and stopped breathing." tonja

doctor at the gym restarted her heart. during her recovery, she learned high blood pressure probably played a big part. "hypertension by itself, your heart muscle gets very thick. there are certain areas of the heart that are not getting a blood supply." right now, for people 50 and over, the target systolic, or top number, is 140. the sprint trial measured t t benefit of using medication to lower that to 120 in older adults and found the rates of heart attack, heart failure and stroke went down by 33 percent. the risk of death was wered by 25 percent. for cardiologists, like swathy kolli, the new, lower number can provide a useful guideline. but it's only part of the equation. "really, blood pressure management is, should be, very, very individualizeded tonja celebrated her 50th birthday with a new, healthy lifestyle and a blood pressure that stays around 120 with the help of medication."don't take life for granted. every d d is a gift." i'm martie salt reporting. trt

in addition to the blood pressure systolic number, doctors should also consider other risk factors, , ke addidional medical conditions, and current medications. the national institutes of health sponsored the "sprint study". it included more than 93- hundred participants recruited from 100 medical centers nationwide. just two are left. the democratic presidential candidates face off in a debate. with the new hampshire primaries just 5 days away, bernie sanders is attacking hillary clinton's policies. donald trump is throwing accusations at ted cruz. trump says he didn't win the iowa caucuses fairly. stay with your 24 hour news source, kcrg-tv9. it's ---. you're watching kcrg-tv9. now,

5:30 am
chris and nicole, the members of msa say it's a relief. with the closest mosque miles away and students packing everywhere on camms, muslims didn't have a quiet area where they could pray without interruption. now that space is available, students are saying it's a step forward. more than 30 thousand students attend the university of iowa. so you can imagine campus is constantly packed with people. which makes finding a quiet are to pray, hard for students like mohammad ismail. 46:07 "whenever i was looking for a room, i kinda would go through the imu and try to find something that's available, which is not the case like at 2 or 2pm, or i'd have to go on top of a staircase and just pray there and hope that no one would walk by and start asking me questions, because we can't'talk when we pray." many other msa members felt the same way. that's when the group decided to reach out. after a month of discussion and planning with university officials, they found a solution. 59:34 "we identifd a couple of rooms that have been used as offices since the flood that happened many years ago. they are no longer needed for offices so we're able to change those to
5:31 am
spaces." two new completely renovated rooms. one for men and another for women. ismail says getting this space is a step forward for not only the group, but the university as a whole. 46:24 "it's just nice having a room where anyone can go and have a quiet place to pray. i'm hoping that other people other students will usit a lot as well. hopefully it will allow for other muslim students on campus to get involved the msa." 47:04 "if there are other religious groups that need that space to pray at i think that the university will see a need for them then they'll be fine with them and i think that's a good thing for everyone on campus." redington agrees this is a chance for other groups on campus to be aware they can also express their needs, and their voices will be heard. 00:36 "the big thing is ask, come talk k us, tell us what we're missing,g, tell us what their wanting, tell us what their vision is and how we can help and how we can support them, and we
