for the hawkeyes in the future. at this time last year, drew cook was leading the iowa city regina regals to state football title. ditto this man. ryan boyle was the quarterback who keyed west des moines dowling's drive to a state championship. now both are wearing iowa jerseys, running the scout teams and waiting for their time to come. both are great guys. very very smart. team oriented. leaders. they are different type of quarterbacks but both have the potential to be very effective. but the bottom line is this.we would like to redshirt both of them. however three weeks ago during prep for northwestern, cj beathard's health was in question and so adjustments were made. boyle worked with the second group. and if we would have gotten to that situation he would have played. but i wouldn't read a whole lot into that. and we have let drew take some snaps as well. trying to split that up. hopefully we won't get to either one of them but they have to be ready. if it came down to putting one in, would it be boyle. it would it be boyle? it would be if it were today. about drew, a couple years ago i wasn't sure he would be a college quarterback. right now i am sure he will be. he improves with every turn. do you project both of them as quarterbacks or will that be up for discussion? going into next season our plans are to let both continue to grow, continue to develop and see where it takes them. drew cook, ryan boyle they will both travel to indiana and if things go as

the keystone x-l pipeline this week. yesterday, he rejected building the transcanada oil pipeline that would run from canada to texas. the president said the pipeline would not have lowered u-s gas prices. he said it also would not have decreased the country's dependence on foreign oil. senator chuck grassley released a statement on the president's decision. he said, "this was a chance to add more of those jobs. it was a chance to help meet the country's energy needs and reduce dependence on less reliable foreign sources." "the rejection of the pipeline is clearly a misguided political decision, rather than one made on the facts and merits." a group of experts is recommending changes for criminal justice policy reform in iowa. governor branstad put together the group, who looked at four specific areas. they recommend improving drug and mental health courts, by conducting annual reports on their effectiveness.

children in dubuque county have needed foster homes. they say the more foster families that are available, the better they can match children with families who can meet the child's individual needs. "there are a lot of kids who just need homes. and you don't have to be a perfect family and you don't have to be a perfect family." according to iowa kids net, dubuque especially needs multi-racial foster families, and families who will take in teenagers. a louisiana family is grieving... after a little boy and his father are shot during a confrontation with police. two officers now face criminal charges.

" employee vetting needs to be beefed up. and one of the things they need to do in addition to it, once they hire these individuals, they need to keep continuing to vet them on a recurring basis to make sure if they go bad in the course of time as employee we catch that before its too late."
