i wanted to be a jedi." schmitt was crushed when he found out jedi's weren't real. but he soon started a decades long journey with martial arts--includin g running a weapon's academy. schmitt was determined to merge his two passions into a very real class. "as a kid, i would've given anything to join a jedi training academy or lightsaber academy, but there wasn't really anythinin around. so i thought, you know, i'm going to look into starting my own." (brad hanson, @bhansonkww l) "while there's no such thing as jedi's in real life, schmitt says, well, he's the closest thing to it. as for me, i still need quite a bit of training." schmitt says the lightsaber academy is more than just learning cool moves with combat ready light sabers. "i wanted to be able to teach a class that has some substance to it too. we didn't want to just play star wars, we wanted the student to leave here feeling like they're getting something out of it." it took more than a year of planning to get this academy off the ground--two of the people in on the ground floor, abby harle and cassie jackson, had never seen the movies before they started this journey. although that's no longer the case.

for free trade but fair trade." there's one republican debate left before the iowa caucuses. that's january 28th in iowa. the carolina sunday. i'm tracie potts in washington, >> the vice president begins his mission to battle cancer today. at tuesday night's state of the union address president obama tapped joe biden to head an effort to work on curing c ccer. that came after the vice president had called for a "moonshot" to cure cancer last october. today biden will be in philadelphia to participate in a roundtable discussion at the abramson cancer center at the university of pennsylvania's perelman school of medicine.... and where he will talk to cancer experts. biden's son, beau, died of brain cancer last year. after taking office last year, nebraska governor pete ricketts vowed to make property tax relief a priority. it's a theme that continued yesterday, as the governor delivered his second state of the state address. ktiv's robert lowe has more from lincoln, nebraska.
5:24 am
to residents was a message he hit hard on thursday. "we must prioritize property tax relief. it is my number one priority this session," said nebraska gov. (nats) that's the reason for a new, two-bill package. "agriculture is our number one industry here in nebraska, representing nearly 25 percent of our state's economy," said nebraska gov. pete ricketts "while farm incomes are subject to variations and flucuations each year, property taxes go up and up." part of the plan aims to slash land valuations. for example, cutting a projected 6.8 percent increase in 2016 for northeast, nebraska--dow "every farmer, every farmowner pays that tax every year whether you make money or not," said state sen. dave bloomfield from hoskins. another portion of the package includes tightening local government spending limits. "he's(gov. rickett's) has realm of services me must have and those we'd like to have," bancroft, ne. but, the gov. didn't stop with property tax relief. ricketts is also asking lawmakers to approve using $150 million of the state's cash reserve to improve infrastructure. that'll possibly drive forward the expansion of highway 81 and highway 275 from two to four lanes. "it gives a base, along with the design-build concept, so that we can start getting dirt moved on 275 as early as 2019,"said state sen. jim scheer, norfolk, ne.. but, time is not on the

5:26 am
talked about property tax relief. he also touted nebraska's low unemployment rate of 2.9 percent, which is the second lowest in the country. but, ricketts says that also leads to challenges finding a skilled workforce. "we've created the nebraska developing youth talent initiative which is working with private sector companies to get them involved with our schools to help develop some of that training at an early age," said nebraska governor pete ricketts. gov. ricketts visited 3 other cities yesterday and has 6 more to visit today to finish his trip across the state. as the iowa legislativivsession wraps up its first week, lawmakers are still processing governor terry branstad's request for more state aid to schools. sioux city's education association is advocating for raises for local teachers in their initial proposal for the 2016-2017 school year. regional director bruce lear says, like every year, they hope to get more pay for teachers. this year, the union is asking for a six-percent increase for salaried teachers.
5:27 am
we begin this process, what we're looking for is the recognition of the work that they do in order to help kids achieve," bruce lear, director for the sioux city education association. the union is also asking for smaller class sizes, which would require the district to hire more teachers. the sioux city community school board will review the proposal, and provide a responding proposal on january 28th. afterwards, the groups will have private negotiations to settle on a final contract. do you still have holiday weight gain you'd like to shed? coming up in healthbeat 4, we'll have tips to help you get on the right track. ben: and i'll have your
