action at the time of the veto.. 23:53-24:10 clearly people understand there is a separation of powers. the legislature has certain powers. the governor has certain power. and i do have the power veto and the legislature if they feel its inappropriate can override that veto and they didn't. and that's why we believe the court made the decision they did governor branstad says the state is redesigning how the state deals with mental health care... adopting a more community based system, institutions in cherokee and independence will remain open. six people are behind bars after osceola business. five of the suspects are charged with prostitution. daveta williams is charged with and driving while barred. all six are being held at the clarke county jail. four departments helped the osceola p-d conduct the sting. the polk county health department says meat served at a roosevelt high school luncheon, is the source

police equipment at the crime scene, including pepper spray, a baton and his personal glasses, in an attempt to mislead first-responders and investigators to believe it was a homicide scene. additionally, gliniewicz had experience staging mock crime scenes for police explorer training. the investigation also concluded that gliniewicz strategically aimed the first of two shots from his own weapon at the lower abdominal area, striking his cell phone and bulletproof vest, which absorbed most of the impact of the first shot. on the day he died, gliniewicz radioed that he was chasing three suspicious men. his death led to a large manhunt, but no arrests were made. the gliniewicz family attorney say the family will not comment at this time. the reward for information death of a nine year old shot and killed in chicago has been increased. tyshawn lee was gunned down in an alley while walking home from school.
