thousand firearm background checks in december... that's more than any other month last year, which averaged 7 thousand to 17 thousand. some say it's fueled by the president's executive action on gun control, while others say it's simply for protection. police have identified the victim in des moines' first homicide of the year... 71 year old norma mcneeley was found dead inside this home on pioneer road. officers originally responded to the home for a welfare check yesterday morning. police haven't released any additional information but say an update is expected at noon. one person is dead after a crash in johnson county over the weekend... it happened along interstate 80, near mile marker 240, yesterday afternoon. troopers say one car was rear ended by another, pushing it into the next lane and causing it to collide with a semi.

appeared on the television show "home improvement." donald trump says he is behind his democratic rival's recent surge in support... i was the best thing that ever happened to bernie sanders because my attack on hillary... all of a sudden she went down and sanders got all the credit for it. right? this guy, i mean this guy bernie sanders...give me a break. how does he figure in this whole thing? but he got all the credit. it's unbelievable. trump made the comments at a packed campaign event in muscatine yesterday. a recent c-n-n poll shows sanders sitting on top in iowa, with 51 percent support. hillary clinton had just 43 percent. iowa lawmakers will soon get an update on the transition to a privately managed medicaid system. the "senate human resources committee" will be briefed this afternoon. the committee will discuss whether the new provider networks will
