and i'm jack miller. tonight-- an entire county says no to the bakken pipeline. we've heard from individuals, we've heard from farmers. now officials in boone county are urging the iowa utilities board to say no too. jack: local 5's kattey ortiz joins us now with the latest. kattey: this is the first time an entire county has stepped up to the plate. yesterday they adopted a resolution against the project ... and they say the people of boone county are behind them. "we essentially pulled a hail mary" in a last-ditch effort, the boone county board of supervisors signs a resolution saying "no way" to the dakota access, or bakken, pipeline. "what we're concerned about is property rights, and the environment and the resources that would be affected by the line." the resolution was adopted at a board meeting wednesday with dakota access officials. boone county chairman chet hollingshead says not a single person from boone county at the meeting supported the controversial project. "we can send a message to the iowa utilities board like hey, we're not in favor of this, and maybe other counties along this route will follow suit
in webster county ... the board will be meeting with dakota access officials next week to adopt their resolution. they'll have strict rules for the company to follow to protect their drainage systems. but don't count on them to say no too. "we are not against or for a pipeline. in our opinion that pipeline is a private negotiation between a landowner and a private business. we're not here to be endorsing them or against them. we're here to protect our roads and our drainage system here in webster county." still ... hollingshead hopes their opposition will open the gates for more counties to step up too ... before it's too late. "i would think if you had strong messages coming from county supervisors along the route, i would hope that that would have an impact on the decision making process." kattey: this resolution doesn't necessarily mean the pipeline would be a no-go in boone county. ultimately that's up to the iowa
they will make their decision on november 16th. in the studio kattey ortiz we are iowa. jack: but first ...the iowa utilities board will hold their public hearing on november twelfth at the boone county fairgrounds. moving to cherokee county landowners eminent domain the pipeline. but the ruling from the judge didn't swing in anyone's favor, and that made the plaintiffs upset. the decision was that they didn't have enough to back up their lawsuit yet. the court advised that they exhaust all avenues through the state first. the agrument from the farmers is that since dakota access doesn't service electricity, water, natural gas, tv or internet, these landowners are arguing it is not a utlitiy company, and therefore cannot use eminent domain. stephanie: developing now, a house is reportedly engulfed in flames. stephanie: it's happening south of the metro down in
thayer iowa. the union county sheriffs office confirmed with us that they have a deputy on scene. they told us that the home is vacant right now and there are no injuries. we have a crew on there way. look for more information on good morning iowa tomorrow morning. stephanie: it was a really strange reason to let out an entire school. but something in the lunch may have made dozens of people sick. local five's jacob peklo joins us now from outside roosevelt with more. jacob? jacob: stephanie, it's an amazing statistic. 58 teachers, or about half of educators at roosevelt high school, were out sick today. some called in at the beginning of the day, while others tried to push through but couldn't make it past lunch. it truly created an unusual situation.
about it, and i was like, heehee, haha, because i thought everyone was joking." but it was no laughing matter. half of the teachers were out sick on thursday, most pointing to food poisoning. phil roeder, district communication manager: "seems like the one common denominator for it, is that all the teachers who got it attended a staff luncheon yesterday." while the food is the primary suspect, district officials decided to play it safe by giving students the final two hours off, ahead of their scheduled three day weekend. phil roeder, district communications manager: "you really just need to call it quits for the day, you really can't keep up with substitute teachers. let the students go home a little bit early." buses were fired up early, while other kids waited for their parents to come pick them up. deanna besougloff, parent: "i guess because they're high schoolers, they think they're old enough to take care of themselves." the health department will investigate the events around the luncheon over the weekend to determine if food poisoning is the true culprit. phil roeder, district communications manager: "if there is kind of a silver lining in all of this, is at least it appears to be an isolated incident to this single event that the teachers attended.")>> jacob:
the parent- teacher conferences that were scheduled for tonight were canceled, as well as all other activities here at the school. tomorrow is a teacher's work day, but now the question is how many will be well enough to attend that. live in des moines, jacob peklo, local five news. we are iowa. stephanie: all of the extra- curricular activities scheduled for tomorrow, including the football game against lewis central in council bluffs should go on as scheduled. jack/1shot: pleasant hill police want to know who broke into some cars tuesday night and stole credit cards.... and they need your help. so take a good look. surveillance video shows two men walking into the walmart on east 14th. one of them tried to use the stolen cards but failed. both walked out of the store with one man carrying stolen merchandise. police are asking if anyone who

welcome back-- des moines hoover has already locked in a playoff spot-- but carrying some momentum into e post season is key-- so they're looking for a win tonight on the road at sioux city west. hoover won this matchup by 41 a year ago down in des moines... it's 14-7 huskies late in the 2nd...jerry ziaty...tries to go right up the gut, he gets cut off but finds a seam up the left side...17 yards to the house to make it 20-7. west looking for the answer before half...noah mcwell...what a dual threat he is...a big chunk of yards, but the drive would stall and that would be our halftime score. second drive of the second for hoover...wilfrid kouakou puts it up for patrick sullivan who makes a nice snag...that would set up a short touchdown run. late in the third west gets the answer...mcwell hits jalen roseland for the 72 yard pitch and catch...but that wouldn't be enough...hoover ends west's playoff hopes with a 34-14 win. jon: pella christian's offense has taken flight this
season. they've thrown for over two thousand yards and almost all of it has been from the arm of david kacmarynski. but success on the gridiron is kind of expected when you carry that last name. " you could say football and pella christian's david kacmarynski were meant to be together. the story goes when i was born the doctor looked at me and he said oh he's got the number 34 on his back referencing my father's collegiate number. my mom's first words were he doesn't have to play football if he doesn't want to. sure enough even without his parents pushing him to play i think my wife and i have encouraged him to be active in a lot of things honestly we tried to get him involved in music that didn't stick. david found a passion for the sport his dad-- rich-- excelled at-- rich was a runningback for central and is now in the hall of honor. "i looked at my uncles who had success, my father just grew up around the game with going to so many practices as a young child i just kind of grew up enjoying football." now david is excelling
under center for the eagles-- leading the state in touchdown passes with 26. and his dad has been right there on the sidelines for every single one as pella christian's head coach. "he's made a lot of better decisions he's also made more plays with his feet this year which has been good. i've been really proud of how hard he has worked. i'm really proud of how hard he has led this team. that's been fun to see as a coach and as a dad." but it's not always easy having dad as a quarterback. percent great it's been obviously you've got dynamic going on." "i haven't always been quiet with my opinion on stuff but that can be a hinderance when it's your father and you feel comfortable with the coach." together though they're hoping to achieve a state title. and even further down the road-- david might follow his dad's footsteps and play at the next level. "something that if the opportunity presents itself and i enjoy the college that offers
me the opportunity something i'd definitely look at because i enjoy football that much that i'd enjoy playing at the next level." but until that time comes-- this father son duo will enjoy the time the have together on the field for pella christian. tune in to good morning iowa tomorrow as elias will be live from pella christian from 6 to 7. then binger will be live at 6 tomorrow night-- as their matchup against i.c. regina is our friday night blitz game of the week. it's the final week of the season as the friday night blitz begins at 10:35 here on local 5 before we jon/3shot (wrap sports) stephanie: jack: we'll be right back... you're watching local
