good evening. i'm lynn melling. thank you for joining us. iowa landowners who refuse to allow their property to be used for a proposed oil pipeline ... could be forced to do it. and today they learned the corner. aaron brilbeck has the story... governor branstad says he believes eminent domain can and should be used for some pipeline projects. "i don't think that we should eminent domain should never be used. but i also believe that the law that is in place that gives the utilities board the responsibility to do it is appropriate."the governor's comments came after u.s. senator rand paul told landowners in newton over the weekend that private land should never be taken through eminent domain to benefit a private company. dakota access, llc wants to use the land for an under-ground pipeline that would carry roughly a half from north dakota..through iowa..and to a distribution center in illinois. the governor
9:03 pm land will be seized. "they're not taking the land. they're only using the land to put a pipeline through. and we've had thousands of miles of pipeline put through this state."farmer leonard larson has this trailer on his land near i-35. the pipeline would go through his family's property. larson says the governor is wrong. "for them to come along and take our ground for their business, that's almost similar to rape."the pipeline would slice diagonally across 18 counties in iowa. dakota access has said 68-percent of affected property owners have agreed to easements allowing the pipeline. the iowa utilities board will hold public hearings on the pipeline starting november fourth. the governor says he'll stand by the board's decision. "boy, i'll tell ya. we might as well move out of the state if the governor's gonna have that kind of an attitude on the situation. we have them to protect us. not to sell us down the stream." again, the iowa utilities board
9:04 pm

jeb bush was a very strong governor, probably the strongest governor in the history he was a young guy and i think there were some folks in the legislature that thought they might be able to run over him. that didn't happen. one tax cut wasn't enough- he had to do more. it wasn't enough to have 15,000 kids with school choice in florida, he wanted to have 100,000 kids. if he didn't like a project, it was going to be vetoed. it didn't matter if you were a republican. it didn't matter if you were his best friend. he said: 'this is where we're going, this is how we're going to reform state government...' every politician comes in talking about making change, and generally there's not much change. but governor bush made a lot of changes. he got the nickname veto corleone. if he saw something in the budget that he thought violated his conservative principles, you could guarantee it was gonna get whacked. he vetoed a bunch of my stuff and i was the senate president. the message to washington, d.c., is 'get ready...' because there will be change.
9:12 pm
16:18:47 "there's a lot of power in the arts, in a way that's not necessarily recognized for at-risk youth." 16:19:01 :01-:05 reducing crime... through art. that's the mission one des moines group is on... and so far, they say, it's working. ever since art-force-iowa opened its doors three years ago, the small non-profit downtown has given court-involved youth a place to express themselves. and the numbers don't lie... these kids are choosing to chase after their talents and stay out of trouble. reid chandler has this story. < in a small room, with a small staff, art-force-iowa is bringing out the creativity in some of des
9:13 pm
moines' court- involved youth. "the niche to fill is, you know, out-of- school art opportunities. and they also can't necessarily get them in school, even in schools where they're offered. it's a place for them to come and express themselves." - john mark feilmeyer - executive director, artforceiowa john mark feilmeyer came to lead the non-profit three years ago. he says, through art, these kids are finding their purpose. "you're not doing well in math, you're not doing well in english. what are you good at? you can be good at those things, but if you're or drums - or whatever it is that lights your fire and that, it can empower you to do all the things you want to do." - - john mark feilmeyer - executive director, artforceiowa the program may be young...but it's got backing from the county. juvenile court judge colin witt says he recommends art-force-iowa to kids and parents he works with in the courtroom. "those young people that need to create, i think it helps build their sense of self-worth. i think it helps them feel like they belong somewhere. it gives them a hope for the future." - colin witt -
9:14 pm
juvenile court judge, polk county judge witt only sees about 20 percent of the county's total number of court-involved youth... but in that small sample, art-force- iowa seems to be a proven success. "we have had youth in front of judge witt who have been from home, to foster home, to shelter, to juvenile detention, to foster home, to shelter, to independent living. we've seen kids through six, or seven, or eight placements, in the juvenile court, and we're the one consistent force through that all." - john mark feilmeyer - executive director, artforceiowa and the numbers back it up - a study shows kids who get involved at art- force-iowa are seventeen percent less likely to commit another offense. "and that's like, really huge, because if one of those kids - one of those kids - were placed into a juvenile court placement. into detention - woodward, clarindon, eldora - even for six months to a year, that could be easily our budget for a year. you're looking at $270 dollars a day for juvenile detention - it's an expensive hotel room for kids that need a lot of surveillance." - john mark feilmeyer - executive director, artforceiowa "it's not just the power of music that's transforming the lives of
9:15 pm
these youth: artforceiowa embraces all kinds of art - even the kind you find sprayed on the sides des moines "if somebody wants to learn how to break dance, we find somebody. if they want to learn photography, we graphic design, music production, spray somebody out there that we can connect them with." - saulaman schlegel - artist- mentor, artforceiowa feilmeyer will tell you, this isn't a's a community. "i don't want to be a service provider." - john mark feilmeyer - executtve director, artforceiowa and it's unlike anything else happening here in des moines. "you look at great cities in the u.s. - new york city, san francisco, chicago, d.c. they've all got these really great programs that are doing what we're trying to do. and nobody else is doing that in des moines." - john mark feilmeyer - executive director, artforceiowa art-force-iowa goes beyond programming for court-involved youth...they also have work-force training programs for young adults. you can learn more about the group by heading over to art force
