here's a look at some of eastern iowa's top stories -- on this morning... managers at an eastern iowa ethanol company are now facing multiple charges of federal tax violations.last week, a cedar rapids grand jury indicted the owner and general manager of permeate refining in hopkinton.according to court documents, randy less and darrell smith allegedly withheld federal income, social security and medicare taxes from employees-- but didn't pay those taxes to the i-r-s.prosecutors say both failed to pay more than 420-
taxes in 2009 and 20-11. the head of the iowa national guard says nearly 17-hundred positions have been opened up to women this year following a federal policy change.during his condition of the guard address at the state capitol, major general timothy orr said the changes come after the pentagon's 20-15 ruling that allows women to serve in any position, including combat roles. right now, the guard has 15 soldiers and airmen deployed around the world. a cbs news investigation
q:cr: what was your biggest concern in reading these forms? 14;03;48;13 a:mo: that i couldn't tell the number of people that were assisted. i thought that was truly unusual. if the organization is asking for money to assist veterans, and talking about it, i would like to know.(gfx) wounded warrior project says 80 percent of their money is spent on programs for veterans. that's because they include some promotional items, direct response advertising, and shipping and postage costs. take that out, and the figures look more like what charity watchdogs cite - that only 54 to 60 percent of donations go to help wounded service members. (out gfx) (charity watch and charity navigator, respectively) (marc owens) 13;30;42;01 q:cr: the ceo has said that the fundraising should and can be included in the programs and services. 13;30;48;02 a:mo: well i'd be curious to know how asking people for money equates to the assistance
of wounded veterans. (gfx over video of
ceo since 2009 -- in 2014 he was paid nearly half a million dollars.

group's is sitting on a $248 million surplus -- and that not enough of it is being spent on veterans.
