last night's nevada caucuses... donald trump continues his winning streak... with an eye on super tuesday states: (sot trump 00:51:32) we have great numbers coming out of texas, amazing numbers coming out of tennessee and georgia and arkansas// it's going to be an amazing two months. we might not even need the two months, to be honest, folks. the billionaire frontrunner garnered much of his support in the state -- from voters who are dissatisfied with the government. (sot voter) the current administration's attitude is just not where i think we need to be. politically correctness is destroying us. the win gives trump the majority of the delegates in the state...bringing him closer to clinching the gop nomination. (sot analyst) i think it really primes him well to head into those march 1st states. i think he is well positioned to sweep across the board. (stand up: danielle nottingham cbs news las vegas, nevada) as trump continues to gain momentum...the rest of the gop field is battling it out to become his alternative. entrance polls show a majority of caucus-goers who favored a candidate with more political experience backed marco rubio over ted cruz. the texas senator addressed supporters shortly after polls closed: (sot cruz) one week from today will be the most important night of this campaign. they'll face trump in their next debate tomorrow night in texas...before voters in 11 states pick their choice for commander in chief. danielle
3 3 iowa's senior u - s senator says *no* nominee by president obama to replace supreme court justice (ann - ton - in) antonin (scuh - lee - uh) scalia will be considered by the u - s senate this year.chuck grassley... the chairman of the senate judiciary committee... co - signed a letter to senate majority leader mitch mcconnell confirming his committee would *not* hold any confirmation hearings on any president obama nominee to the supreme court.in that letter... grassley and the other 10 republicans on the committee wrote... quote... "we intend to exercise the
the senate... to ensure the american people are not deprived of the opportunity to engage in a full and robust debate over the type of jurist they wish to decide some of the most critical issues of our time." 3 3 and iowa democrats wasted no time responding to grassley's letter. they call the move "childish obstructionism." iowa democratic party executive director ben (faux - key) foecke released a statement that says... quote... "preemptively denying the president's supreme court nominee a hearing on his or her qualifications, without even waiting for the president to name a nominee, is partisan obstructionism at its worst.grassley and his republican colleagues have decided to close their eyes and cover their ears instead of doing their jobs." 3 and staying in iowa now... after almost six months of political battles over the future of iowa's medicaid program... it looks like the fight is over for now. federal regulators say
*privatize* the program *can* go ahead.the governor's office announced the centers for medicare and medicaid services have approved the transition to a "managed care" system. iowa will join 39 other states and the district of columbia by letting private insurance providers manage the medicaid program... with state oversight. the original target date for the switch was january 1st... but that was pushed back to march 1st... april 1st now. the governor argues the change will provide more efficient... effective care. but critics are worried it'll lead to deep cuts in services. democrats in the legislature say they'll make sure there's *strict* oversight of the program. 3 back in siouxland... the woodbury county board of supervisors is still working on setting the county's budget for the next fiscal year. 3 a lot of last night's budget talks were about taxes... and how much money should be diverted to the county's emergency reserve fund.
increase the amount in the reserve to just more than 20 percent of the county's annual budget. plus... now the county will *borrow* 5 and a half million dollars to fund the coming year's capital improvement program. 3 "we accomplished property taxes going down for the second straight year in woodbury county which is a wonderful thing not only for property tax payers and hard working families but also as an economic development 3 tool."the supervisors are expected to finalize the budget at a special hearing on march 15th. 3 the county board *also* wants to restore the woodbury county courthouse before its centennial in 20 - 18. 3 that'll include replacing 90 light globes inside the historic building. right now the board is looking for a company to do the work. because the globes need to be replaced entirely... the new fixtures and the paint used on them will have to meet specific... historic standards. 3 "they have become very brittle most of them have visual cracks in them. and its just
a light bulb in them without damaging them further." 3 the board also wants to see if they can fix the stained glass windows and terra cotta at the courthouse at the same time. 3 the city council is going ahead with plans to build a new cell tower in morningside.verizon wireless wants to build a tower in the 900 block of south rustin street. people who don't want the tower in their neighborhood gave a petition to the city council last month. one person says the value of up to *80* homes there will be lowered by the tower... but the council decided to move ahead with the project. 3 this morning we've got an update on a story we told you about yesterday. some westside neighbors who say they haven't been able to drive on the dirt road to their homes since the big blizzard. now... as siouxland news reporter jaclyn driscoss shows us... city crews have come to their rescue. 3 natscity crews began working on west 7th street overnight... natspacking dirt
road passible. residents say this dirt road has been out of commission since the blizzard earlier this month with ruts more than a foot deep. "it's a mess. it's a muddy, rough mess to climb even in four-wheel drive because i have a four- wheel drive. most of the people around have trucks, but it's still kind of hard to climb." for as long as residents can remember, this has been a dirt road and the city has no diffinitive plans to change that."some residents are simply satisfied, they'll live on a dirt road. they're o.k. with that and they make it work. others really do want to have pavement and some sort of hard surface so they don't run into the problems these folks on west 7th ran into which i think the city is timely correcting."sioux city has a total of 67 miles of dirt roads which are a continuous and difficult task to maintain. field services manager ed pickens... tells us it's a constant struggle, but one the city tries to keep up with. pickens also says some people make the mistake of hiring private contractors to put salt on those dirt roads... which the city *won't* do. that's because the salt simply turns the dirt into a wet, muddy mess that's even more difficult to maintain.it's a clear challenge for the city to maintain, but it also makes simple tasks for some residents next to impossible to complete. nats"cars can't get up here to take me to the hospital. i can't walk down
3 a lot of kids dream of becoming astronauts and traveling into space... but it looks like even the final frontier gets boring every now and again.you might think that anyway... if you saw this video posted on twitter by astronaut mark kelly. we see someone in a gorilla suit bursting out of a bag on the international space station and terrorizing a crew member.no explanation is given... just a weird tweet from kelly that says "i thought you said you had things under control up there." 3 3 3 3 temperatures have fluctuated a bit overnight, expect that to continue for the next couple hours before we warm up a bit. 3 3 a recent magazine article says

3 "its really a good idea because its way to bring in some of the members that maybe don't get a chance to travel or to do some of the different activities that you do during cruise week and get to experience during cruise week. gives them the opportunity to do some of those things."chefs and bakers from 8 different care centers and nursing homes were part of the contest. larry and diana say they were *all winners*... because everything was delicious. 3 iowa's utility regulator is delayiyi a decison on a proposed pipeline frorooil fields in north dakota... *again!*the bakken oil pipeline has been up for argument in the state for almost two years... with environmental *and* property rights groups uniting to oppose it. the proposal would run the pipeline through 17 iowa counties between the south dakota and illinois borders. the iowa utilities board is the last state regulator to make a decision on the project. it's held quite a few hearings... and

player on the basketball court. the team's leading rebounder gives husky fans reasons to cheer. but he can't hear them. because connor has been deaf since he was 3 months old."i was really sick. i had meningitis." "we were told that he would be deaf, there was a great possibility he would be mentally handicapped. couldn't walk, couldn't talk, may not even live." "they found out i had almost died twice while i had that disease and from that point on i was deaf."at the age of three connor met jennie clause, who has served as his interpreter throughout his childhood. "he doesn't need me. (laughs)"but husky head ach cole knippling says *he* sure needs her. he says she does more than just sign the plays in to connor on game days. "as a coach, you're watching so many different things with all the different players. but jennie's just watching connor. so she'll come to me and say you're telling him to do this and he's not doing it. so it's great because she tattles on him all the time and then i get after him."connor remembers the day coach first went after him and recruited him to play basketball when he was in middle school."i felt just inspired and elated. it didn't mean that i was on it. i had to work my butt off to be on varsity." "it's kind of a crime. if he wasn't deaf, every naia school in our area would be drooling over him. he's the biggest athlete i've ever had here."and in a sport where trash talk is king, connor is unfazed."if they say mean things i ignore them, actually i can't hear them." "my favorite story is when he was a 7th grader, we were doing an in-practice scrimmage. and he used to wear a coclear implant so he could wear some things. and he was shooting a free throw to win the scrimmage. and they were all getting loud and he just unplugged it, looked at him
it, plugged it back in and went, 'what?'"what's next for connor is college. he'll be going to gallaudet university in washington d.c. it's the only higher education institution where all programs and services are specifically designed to accomodate deaf and hard of hearing students. "it's the complete opposite of what he's used to. because there you need an interpreter if you're hearing.""i want to be in an education career. with a major in education with a minor in sports field management. and i'd like to play basketball for them for the next four years.""i think he's going to play there. i think he's gonna do great." "it's been exciting just to watch him grow up and be so successful."chris: "are you going to miss him?" "yes, very much so."wherever he goes, connor will always have a cheering section right here in siouxland, whether he can hear them or not.in elk point,
them.crews were trying to save the two window washers yesterday afternoon. their scaffolding stalled as they were working outside the sixty - fifth floor at 17 - 17 broadway. firefighters say the scaffolding *was* stable... but mechanics couldn't get it moving again.instead... firefighters had to take out a pane of glass to bring the workers inside the building. . neither of them were hurt... and they didn't have to wait too long. rescuers got them inside the building in just over an hour. 3 3 3 3 how's your new year's resolution going? still working out? if it's started to *fizzle* out... we can help... next in "talk of the town." 3 "you're watching siouxland
