cedar rapids substitute teacher mary beth haglin is guilty of sexually exploiting a student last school year. haglin, who is 24, chose to have a bench trial instead of a jury trial. a judge will base his decision strictly on information prosecutors have already filed. because of that, the charge against her for having sex with a 17 year old is an aggravated misdemeanor, not a felony. the maximum penalty is two years in prison. the judge has promised to make a ruling in about a month. students at ohio state university will go back investigators figure out why a student attacked several people. authorities say 11 people were hurt when a student drove his car into a group of people on the university's campus yesterday. he then got out and began stabbing people with a butcher knife. a campus police officer shot and killed the student. police are now investigating whether it was a terrorist attack. a new industrial park in cedar rapids could bring major companies and new jobs to the area. alliant energy announced plans
6:07 am
near edgewood road and 76th avenue sw, north of the eastern iowa airport. alliant says the 1,300 acres will make it the largest industrial park in the state. the eventual plan is to help iowa compete with other states for large scale businesses. alliant says instead of buying the land, it reached deals with the property owners. "those landowners continue to own the land at this time. they will continue to farm the land, and people will continue to live in some of the houses that are on those acreages at this time. but under the circumstances that a business will come along and developing that land for their business, they could purchase that land from the landowners." alliant says it has paid some money to the landowners to get them be part of the program. the linn county board of supervisors now has 485 acres of land to expand squaw creek park. the county bought it in early november for more than seven million dollars. it plans to extend its public park and trails as well as create a wetland. the county purchased the land
