"with the flooding a lot of folks are out of their homes, that takes off their food supply , they're not able to cook, their not able to bathe, and water is an essential thing to life. you can go up to 2 weeks without food but only a couple days without water." troops say it means a lot for a neighboring state to ask for help. they will be in missouri for 10 days. cancelled flights are causing problems for some dubuque families trying to make it to the rose bowl. kcrg t-v nine's dubuque bureau chief katie wiedemann met some who say they'll make it to the game, no matter what. as thousands of hawkeye fans crowded the eastern iowa airport ready to watch their beloved hawkeyes try their luck against stanford. some travelers from dubuque weren't so lucky.

"i got a call from american airlines saying that they were cancelling our flight and rebooked us on a friday flight, which the game is friday.

5:15 am
david geiger. ---- 2015 was a record breaking year for agriculture in iowa.. with its own set of challenges... and yesterday the iowa department of agriculture put out what it views as the top three issues of the year.. the first was what the u-s- d-a calls the largest animal health emergency in u-s history.. on april 14th.. the first case of highly pathogenic avian influenza was confirmed in iowa. 48 million birds in 21 states would be affected.. with nearly half of iowa's layers.. ending up with bird

5:16 am
million birds on 77 locations.. back in april we talked to the iowa department of agriculture.. and if you remember.. they weren't surprised when it developed.. because it was in most of the surrounding states. ---- earlier in december.. all bird flu quarantines were lifted.. and just this week.. it was announced bird shows would be allowed again in 2016. the second big ag issue to the iowa department of agriculture.. was the iowa water quality initiative.. in the fall, secretary northey announced that 18 hundred farmers committed three and a half million dollars in cost share funds to install nutrient reduction practices in all of iowa's counties.. nearly a thousand of those farmers were using conservation practices for the first time. they could use those funds for cover crops.. no-till or strip till.. or using nitrification inhibitors.. 29 demonstratio n projects using 16 million dollars of private funds also went to help start up and show off water quality practices. northey says nearly a third of a billion dollars of state and federal funds were directed to programs with water quality benefits in iowa in 2015. ---- iowa also saw a record
5:17 am
a near ideal growing season in the state saw record corn and beans.. the two and a half billion bushel corn crop broke the previous record by four percent.. and included a record shattering statewide average of a hundred and 89 bushels per acre.. iowa soybean producers harvested five hundred 50 million bushels of soybeans.. five percent more than the previous record.. and also had a record statewide average yield of 56 bushels per acre.. back in november.. i talked to northey about the season. "i think we all thought going into this report or this fall that we might have some really good crops, and we ended up with record crop of corn and record crop of soybeans both in yield and production." ---- crop prices have reached much tighter margins in 2015.. with softening global demand and a strong dollar.. market analyst don roose has the end of year commentary. "as we come to a close in 2015, the grain market really just has a more of a negative type of tone to it.
5:18 am
to levels that we compete in the world market.." "argentine corn ihas been 25 cents under u.s. corn so it's just been really competitive environment. export pace is slowing down. so the funds continue to press the short side of the market. and so improved weather, slow exports and a lot of competition's just pressing us into year end." "the cattle industry had a late christmas surprise here. cash cattle this week traded 11 to 12 dollars higher a hundredweight this week versus last. we had in two weeks, we've went up about 18 to 19 dollars. historical run to the upside. but the market feels like we're getting to the top end of the mature level at the present time." "the hog market after the hog and pig report, has more of a positive type of tone. it feels like we're in a stair step move up. the market feels like through february, we want to try and tack on another two to four dollars a hundred

hopefully picks up into next year." ---- we'll post a video every day in the agribusiness section of kcrg.com. you'll find it under the news tab. i'm david geiger with the agribusiness report. trt 3.49 oc webtease president obama is expected to announce a new executive order on gun control. white house sources say the goal is to close the quote "gun show loophole." it lets certain gun sellers skip buyer background checks. gun control advocates expect the president will reveal the plan at the state of the union address on january 12th. the white house isn't sharing the exact timing or the content of the executive order. sometimes it takes more than one hand to reel in a big catch. and this fishing friend needed a firm grip on a 5 pound catfish for a priceless picture. that and more catches coming up on big ol fish. stay with tv9. it's ---.

"when we go shopping we don't get to go to the gourmet store like some schools do they get to pick the guys my sister can tell you are good. we are not against that but that has not been nature if our program. it forces us to think outside the box look beyond the obvious trying to see something in a player that has a redeeming quality.

city's times square to watch the famous ball drop to ring in 2016. organizers expected another 100 million people in the u-s to watch it on t- v, with worldwide viewership of more than a billion. the ball is 12 feet in diameter and weighs nearly 12-thousand pounds. it's covered with nearly three-thousand waterford crystal triangles and more than 32- thousand l-e-d lights. the annual celebration has been going on for more than a century, and the famous times square ball made its debut on december 31, 1907. january 1st typically brings some new laws in iowa. here's a brief glance at those taking effect today. anyone wanting to sell insurance for portable electronics, like cell phones, will need to have a license or face fines. a court will be able to expunge criminal records for cases resulting in dismissal or acquittal. the department of human services will become the only agency to

"anytime the weather has a little bit of madness thrown at us with temperatures spikes snow, ice, we see an increase in the number of people calling in, wanting to apply, where to apply, and various questions like that." if you're interested in signing up, call the hawkeye area community action program or united way of east central iowa.

time when almost everyone has extra trash. landfill operators hope the word gets out about what can and can not be recycled. the cedar rapids and linn county solid waste agency saw a major increase in recycling drop offs this week as people clear out the holiday trash. people who got new t-v's last week can recycle their old one for a 5 dollar fee. but one concern is wrapping paper. it's not the same as other paper that can be recycled. "that's one of the biggest questions this time of year... what do i do with wrapping paper what do i do with styrofoam. we just tell everyone throw it away... those materials can not be recycled." recycling center workers try to intercept any of the "wrong" materials before they go into the piles of material headed for recycling sorting. broken christmas lights can be recycled for free as electronic waste. 20-15 was a big year for all things digital. now the final list of top apps of the year is out and some major companies are dominating the

trading ahead of the new year's day holiday. the modest declines capped a sluggish 20-15 for the market. investors blame the energy sector for the market's sideways price action in 20-15. it was the worst performing sector in the s and p's stock index last year. it lost nearly 24 percent. the main culprit -- the more than 30 percent decline in the price of u-s based crude. the slump in oil prices pulled down prices at the pump. experts say we can expect to continue to see the low prices. the average driver saved 550 dollars over the course of the year when compared with 20-14. that helped with consumer spending. on the last day of the year, the national average for a gallon of unleaded gas was below two dollars a gallon. and google and facebook -- along with apple -- are responsible for all 10 of the most used smart phone apps in the u-s. the facebook app as well as its messenger and instagram apps made the list.
