the bus driver was fired for failing to intervene. des moines schools released this statement...saying in part, "cases involving mistreatment of a student are a clear violation of the trust and expectation the district has that all of its employees work in the best interests of the students we serve." but apparently, the child's mother had a change of heart. the unemployment appeal documents include a letter from the mother, saying she didn't want to press charges... and that she thinks taylor did what she thought was best to protect the students on the bus... including her son. records show both taylor and the bus driver lost their appeals with iowa workforce development. they were ordered to repay the unemployment benefits they received. a des moines man will get a new trial, for his role in the beating death of another man in 20-13 kent tyler is accused of punching richard daughenbaugh, knocking him to the ground. a group of other men then beat daughenhbaugh to death. the jury found tyler guilty for both throwing the first punch

tent.' brandon benschoter was sleeping when he heard a loud pop early this morning just a couple of tents over... 05:27:39--51 "and when we came out of the tent, just the walls of that tent were tarp and they were all just burning up completely so we decided to pull our propane tank a long ways away from here and we started dragging tents out of the way as well. " a blanket inside a nearby tent had caught on fire...set a flame by a heater. fortunately, no one was injured, but the tent fire makes one imagine what might happen in a worst case scenario...especially with all of those propane tanks sitting around... 05:28:28 'i know ours is hooked up to a tank and well be using it today but i told my friends who are sleeping here tonight were shutting it off when we got to bed when theres nobody awake theres no propane running out so thats kind of a rule we decided to make and that was after last night.' 05:28:39 05:13:47--05:14:06 today weve had part of the university department of public safety, our environmental health and safety staff and ames fire department which provides fire protection on

willing to work with them to allow them to do so. a construction worker was pulled out of icy waters today, after an accident on the job... the marion county sheriff's department says the man was working on a bridge near knoxville this morning when he fell through a plank. he dropped about 12 feet into the water below. the foreman jumped in and pulled the man out of the water.... a crane operator pulled them to shore. the man's name and condition have not been released. blizzard warnings are in effect a way from the carolinas up the eastern seaboard. more than eighty million americans are bracing for an historic storm. brian mooar has the story from washington. a virtual white out at the white was shrouded in a cloud of snow. the nation's

today in america, the top 1/10 of 1% owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90% this great country and our government belong to all of us. wall
street, corporate america, wealthy campaign donors have so much influence that the only way they are defeated is when millions of people begin to stand up and say loudly and clearly, "enough is enough." i'm bernie sanders, and i approve this message.
you should be able to get ahead and stay ahead. but so many families don't feel like their hard work pays off. that's not the way america is supposed to operate. i want to go to bat for them every single day. get incomes rising... get equal pay for women... cut the cost of health care and child care so people can actually get ahead. hillary clinton, she
has what it takes to get things done. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. bringing in people from across the country... from presidential candidates to the national media... des moines will be a busy place in the final nine days until the iowa caucuses.. businesses are cashing in... and the city is also getting the type of publicity other communities can only dream of. jim mertens has the story... iowa's biggest city is getting ready for one of america's biggest political
: it gets a lot of national exposure, it gives us international exposure. for just one night, des moines is the epicenter of the
political world. more important than washington dc and new york. mcguire : we take this very seriously. a cold, midwest city that most of the nation flies over now commands the attention of every political junkie and the journalists who cover them. and the way they view des moines is changing. greg edwards they always wanted to do their broadcast in front of a silo, in the middle of a corn field, and we were saying 'come to the city, use our skyline as your backdrop'. and the city is proving to be more than a skyline: it's a profit center. the old spaghetti works has seen a caucus or two. it started business in 1978, two years after jimmy carter put the iowa caucus on the map. foreign accents are heard ordering its eggplant parmesan or smothered chicken. jon scholl : you get some foreign press. you know, you get asian, you get canadian, you get hispanic ones, mexico,
different people in town. and it warms the heart of businesses that might otherwise find it hard to earn a buck during the cold, hard winter. in downtown, there's no room at the marriott where rooms start at 289 a night... we can't book a room at the less expensive hyatt place either. greg edwards : you probably won't find a hotel room downtown but you'll find a hotel in the metro that weekend. nat sound usually six of ten des moines hotel rooms would be filled the first weekend in february. the caucus is expected to push occupancy to 90-percent. hallie : caucus night is very special for us. the ramada tropics resort still has rooms available... nat sound : we do have a 24 hour cancellation policy... ...and it's not hiking its rates. hallie : downtown will fill up first with all of their hotels and then it slowly moves to the west with our being the next major off-ramp here. but forget all the money that's to be made from the caucus. des moines is looking at the prestige. in 2007, the city burst with pride when a new york times reporter adam
im not sure i would go so far as to say that des moines has become a vacation destination. but it has most certainly become cool. that's worth gold for a city that loses it's spotlight on groundhog day. greg edwards : it's kinda like the day after prom, you know, it's like 'oh my gosh"', you take a deep breath. on one hand, happy it's done with, but on the other hand, we're sad to see them go. clouds will begin to break up this evening and temperatures are expected to drop into the lower teens overnight. we will see a bit more sunshine for saturday and temperatures will climb into the lower 30s. cloud cover will move back in throughout sunday, but temperatures will rise past freezing to top out in the upper 30s. this will be the warmest day of the week as we see the next system move in for monday, cooling temperatures down and bringing in a chance for snow. right now models are indicating very light snow moving through on monday with snow totals less than 2" in the des moines metro. although it will be a chilly start to the work week,
e ciml continues to put a rangle hold on theissketball congress doesn't regulate wall street... wall street regulates congress. it's a rigged economy that sends most new wealth to the top 1%. and it's held in place by a corrupt political system where wall street banks and billionaires buy elections. my campaign is funded by over two and a half million small contributions. people who know you can't level the playing field by taking more money from wall street. i'm bernie sanders, and i approve this message.
the world a president has to grapple with, sometimes you can't even imagine. that's the job. and she's prepared for it like no other. a tireless secretary of state, standing up against the abuse of women and girls. negotiating a cease-fire in gaza, leading the diplomacy that keeps us out
of war. the presidency is the toughest job in the world... and she's the one leader who has what it takes to get every part of the job done.
the person who lives here... has to solve problems as big as the world... and as small as your kitchen table. that's the job.
everyday. and now, the first lady who helped get healthcare for eight million kids... the senator who helped a city rise again... the secretary of state who stood up for america, and stared down hostile leaders around the world... is the one candidate for president who has everything it takes to do every part of the job... she'll never let anyone privatize social security and medicare... or shut down planned parenthood... she'll take on the gun lobby... finally get equal pay for women... and stop the republicans from ripping all our progress away. so on february first, stand up for hillary. because if you want a president who knows how to keep america safe... and build a stronger economy... hillary's the choice... i'm listening to you, i'm fighting for you, and with your support, i'm going to deliver. i'm hillary clinton

(donkey noise) (elephant noise) (mic screech) there's a big difference between making noise... (mic tap) ...and making sense. (elephant noise) (donkey noise) when it comes to social security, we need more than lip service. our next president needs a real plan to keep social security strong. (elephant noise) hey candidates! enough talk.
today in america, the top 1/10 of 1% owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90% this great country and our government belong to all of us. wall street, corporate america, wealthy campaign donors have so much influence that the only way they are defeated is when millions of people begin to stand up and say loudly and clearly, "enough is enough." i'm bernie sanders, and i approve this message. you know the basic bargain of america is if you work hard, and you do your part, you should be able to get ahead and stay ahead. but so many families don't feel like their hard work pays off. that's not the way america is supposed to operate. i want to go to bat for them every single day. get incomes rising... get equal pay for women... cut the cost of health care and child care so people can actually get ahead.
i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. as president, i will defend this nation, but i will do it responsibly. i voted against the war in iraq, and that was the right vote. we must never forget the lessons of that experience. isis must be destroyed, but we should not do it alone. we need an international coalition with muslim boots on the ground fighting with our support. it's time to end the quagmire of perpetual warfare in the middle east.
