people at home are saying they have a problem, listen to them. because most of the time, they are absolutely correct. >> dan: governor kasich did not make any mention of ohio's own water crisis happening right now in the town of seabring. people have been donating bottled water after ohio's e.p.a. issued the water advisory alert for pregnant women and children last month. a local school even had to shutdown two days this week while water was tested for lead and cnn is reporting they knew about the water problem and didn't notify people until december. we want to know why governor kasich didn't address seabring last night and we contacted the governor's office today asking for a response. nothing so far and we have learned lieutenant governor mary taylor is also on the campaign trail. she was in new hampshire this afternoon for the governor. we have contacted our crews in iowa looking to talk to the governor directly as he

way to rob, steal and intimidate. >> bb's guns, pellet guns. they make them look just like the real thing. >> reporter: today the cuyahoga county juvenile court announced they are cracking down on replica guns. from now on juvenile defenders in the system caught using a fake gun to intimidate someone will face tough penalties including being locked up here at the juvenile detention center. >> if you are on pretrial release, the court f appropriate, can revoke your release and take you into custody. if you are on probation to the court from an existing offense and found in possession of one of these guns, gun, they can take you into custody and if appropriate revoke your probation. >> reporter: the court believes focusing on teens that already committed crimes will be most effective because they are more likely to abuse replica guns. deskins hopes the initiative will send a warning to young people and their parents about

as far as his schedule now, we got a chance to look at it, the only thing consistent is inconsistent, hours he is in varies and as do topics of meetings he participates, everything from talking to the doj about the consent decree and organizational structure at hopkins airports to talking about parking violations at specific buildings. obviously, the big question we are waiting on, what projects has flask participated in and has he completed and working on as the executive assistant for special projects to the mayor. we are waiting on that freedom of information act request. as soon as we get the answer we will update you as soon as we learn more. live in cleveland dani carlson, cleveland 19. first alert traffic on cleveland 19 news is sponsored by ford. >> denise: we will take a live look at traffic right now in and out of downtown cleveland. this is 77. smooth sailing and the sun is shining.

make they could have a big impact on monday. >> it is crunch time in iowa. >> if you stand up for me monday night and i will stand for you. >> they hold two dozen different events across the state hoping to convince voters still making up their minds. >> think hard about what you want in the next president and commander-in-chief. >> the economy. >> tim is still undecided. >> what are you deciding over? >> which candidate has less hate and more hope for the country. >> reporter: a strong showing in the nation's first showdown could be a momentum builder and candidates realize it working overtime to close the deal. >> i believe it is our campaign generating the excitement and interest for large voter turnout. >> reporter: the iowa caulk success an investment meaning candidates like hillary clinton have to hold as many big rallies
their supporters up to get out and vote. >> reporter: lauren is one of them. >> it is nice her being a woman, she has our perspectives and just really strong county. >> reporter: a mad dash across the first voting state with the campaigning of many hanging in the balance. >> no question candidates are spending a lot of time in iowa but have not taken their eye off new hampshire. some candidates will split their time between here and new hampshire in the next couple of days and some republicans abandoned their efforts in iowa and focusing completely on the granite state. denise? >> denise: how about mr. trump? has he split town and what's the fallout for him not showing up at the debate. >> reporter: donald trump is one of those candidates splitting time between the two states and spent the bulk of the day in new hampshire after making a big splash with his competing event.
was not as strong as past debates. if you take them in context with past years it is an enormous number and more people watching the debate than donald trump competing event on other various cable channels. this is crunch time. we will find out if donald trump is for real in the next couple of days. >> dan: ryan i saw you tweet earlier you talked to five people in the hillary line and all five are undecided. that's amazing to me. i know there's not a single second of commercial time that isn't a political ad and not a single second can you get to in your hometown. were you shocked that people are excited days away. >> i was really shocked. mainly because we were at a hillary clinton rally. this is the kind of thing where you think only diehards come out but it tells us what the iowa
they spend their time trying to discern what they like about all the candidates and go to the rallies looking to be informed like the gentleman you saw in the piece talked about. he wanted to learn more about hillary clinton and hear about her positive vision for the country. normally i am accustomed to covering rallies in the later stage of the campaign and that's usually diehard supporters that come out and participate in these events. things that happen in iowa there are still voters that need to be convinced and hillary clinton made a special mention of that. she said if you are here and i don't have your vote my goal is to win you over. there's work still to be done by the candidates. >> denise: what about the batch of e-mails that the state department released regarding hillary. any news that will hurt her? any big news from that? there's big news. it is not necessarily in the e-mails and what we are not going to see.
e-mails are not released to the public ever because the state department deems them as classified and republicans pounced on that. and there's a problem that the secretary of state had this private e-mail server and the clinton campaign is pushing back saying they strongly disagree with what the state department decided to do. they believe all the e-mails should be made public because she has nothing to hide. it is a big bombshell to drop before iowa and a week before new hampshire. >> dan: ryan you are in the heart of the battle ground and nice to see you standing in front of my former state capitol. good luck to you. it will be a heckuva weekend. thanks for joining us. >> reporter: thank you. talk to you monday. >> dan: it plays an important role for the race for the white house. what exactly is a caucus. we will break it down coming up in a few minutes. >> jeff: all right. another look right before the
sunset time is 5:39. look at the sky over cleveland. a little chilly and wind died down. we will warm overnight. big weekend warm up. we will be above 50 tomorrow for some areas and then certainly on sunday. that's going to be the warmer of the two weekend days. 20 cleveland. 24 ashtabula. a little colder east and 25 shaker heights and moreland hills. we will see a little drop in temperatures this evening mid-20s here and it will be a slow climb. so by 7 a.m. right around 30 and here you see that temperature trend 27 at 2:00 in the morning and at 8:00 tomorrow, 31. once the south wind picks up and sun comes up. 52 will be the high. a windy day south to southwest wind bringing in the warmth. partly cloudy in the akron-canton area here and right
check out the planner for tomorrow. 30 at 7 a.m. and partly cloudy sky and the bulk of the wind will be the first half of the day there and good day to take your dog out for a walk. there's no rain. make sure you pick up.

it confusing. think of it as a get together with neighbors. every precinct has its own caulk us and every precinct depends on your home address. at republican caucuses. >> he wants to make college tuition tax decuctible. >> speaking on behalf of each participant and cast a secret ballot. for democrats it is more complicated. >> voters separate in groups depending on which candidate they support. >> their supporters are free to move to the other camps. >> this is about standing with your neighbor. transparency and being committed not just to the process but your candidate. >> the iowa caucus started in 1972 and the old school process hasn't changed much. >> this year it is going high-tech. >> application does the math in
report results with this new app determining winners. >> what did you think of the whole process. >> this organized chaos is the first step in picking the in expresident. >> reporter: weijia jiang, cleveland 19. >> dan: this is pretty cool. a group of students from trumbull and geauga counties are getting a front seat to the process. >> lordstown maplewood and newbury are headed to iowa. the kids will pick a candidate and volunteer for the candidate during the day. >> dan: then attend rallies at night to get a firsthand look at the process. >> a great experience. >> denise: very interesting social studies assignment there. >> keep it here. we will bring you the latest on the campaign trail on cleveland 19 and social media and free cleveland 19 news app. mark? >> denise, thanks. >> a friday afternoon in northeast ohio. coming up at 6:00 on cleveland

what will we make so we feel good after we are done eating. >> we will make two things. antioxidant smoothie and raw steel cut oatmeal with chia seeds and almond butter on top. >> reporter: she tells me i will feel good and feel satisfied when i am done. let's hit the kitchen. >> christie says we will start with the smoothie. it is an assembly and right components need to go in to make it healthy and tasty. >> ginger, strawberries, pineapple and using detox number 1 from restore. can you substitute with any beet juice or apple juice. >> these are frozen fruits. >> if you add ice you are watering it down without the right consistency or flavor. >> we will take the juice and fill to the 16-ounce line and this is a good trick to make sure smoothies are consistent. >> we will stick it in the vita mix. >> this is a meal replacement?
or lunch. it would make a great meal and getting enough fiber from the pineapple and strawberries as well. everything in here is good for you. ginger is anti-inflammatory helps with the system and great for your liver and antioxidants. >> now for the taste test. >> tart enough with the pineapple and refreshing with the ginger. yum. >> i feel better already. >> round 2. >> acai bowls and build your own overnight oat bowls and oats is definitely something you can make at home. >> steel cut raw oats we serve chilled and oats are packed with fiber. chia seeds are packed with fiber and omega three's and protein in it. and house made almond milk is packed with protein as well. what we will do is start with half cup oats.
bit of madagascar vanilla bean and chia seeds and add a cup of almond milk. this is a big hit with local athletes. they will actually have this in the mornings, before games. >> reporter: sky's the limit with this. you top it with what you want? >> we like to go with fruit or almond or peanut butter there's at least 20 to 25 grams of protein in that. >> reporter: look at that. it almost looks too pretty to eat. time to taste test. this is virgin territory. i have never eaten anything like this. i am a meat and potatoes girl. this looks appealing. >> it is good. it takes pure for lack of a better word. i think i would miss warm oatmeal but you don't because of the way it is nice and creamy and tart berries and won't feel guilty like eating a donut. >> coconut in mine.
>> reporter: you are a meat and potatoes guy. >> dan: this scares me. >> reporter: i know you have questions. but choosing a donut for breakfast or something like this, people report they are full even through the lunch hour after they eat something like this. >> denise: this is a big bowl. i never would have thought to put peanut butter oatmeal. >> try the juice. mine is better. >> dan: it is like a giant bowl of oatmeal and stuff. it is good. >> reporter: if you are going for this thing like a lot of people are, they are trying to figure out ways to eat healthier and eat raw, it is in there. i was satisfied by it when i tried it. i liked it a lot. >> denise: this wouldn't necessarily be for someone looking to diet but for someone working out and drinks are like a meal replacement. >> reporter: right. >> denise: healthy living not necessarily dieting. protein, fruit. >> dan: it's a lot.
