(sot: kenn watson, florida highway patrol) "when we're making those traffic stops, we're pulling bad guys off the streets. this is something we have to remember." instead, watson suggests just obey the speed limit and let law enforcement officials do their jobs. that way everybody wins- drivers like weaver won't get a ticket, and bad guys can get the justice they deserve. >> law enforcement agencies nationwide have expressed concerns about crowd-sourcing apps like waze that share their locations could interfere with police work or put officers in danger. straight ahead on news 4 today... students at one sioux city school held a taste test yesterday.

" when there is a vacancy on the supreme court, the president of the united states is to nominate someone. the senate is to consider that

that nominee is elevated to the supreme court." president obama says the senate has plenty of time to consider the record of a nominee that he presents and to make a decision. iowa economic leaders say the quality of jobs in the marketplace is doing better today. iowa economic development authority director debi durham says the state is raising incomes, and creating jobs. she says governor terry branstad had a bold growth agenda to create 300-thousand jobs. durham says iowa has exceeded that on, what she called, "a gross level." but, durham says the economy is slowing. "if you look at the strong dollar, that really hurts our imports right now and so even though last year we had a banner year with imports or exports, 15.1 billion broke all records, we're going to be down probably double digits this year when the final accounting is done."

workers, but population growth is slow. she mentioned the aging population, and replacing the jobs that "baby boomers" are leaving. one way she says iowa is addressing the issue is through programs like "home base iowa", and teaching students stem. durham says those can prepare them for the workforce at a young age. some sioux city students had a special visitor tuesday. iowa lieutenant governor kim reynolds began a statewide stem tour, in sioux city. at morningside elementary, she dropped into a few classes asking students about their various projects. reynolds also took a look at loess hills elementary's computer programming designation. students showed off their coding projects. reynolds says she sees tremendous opportunities in offering classes, like these, in elementary schools. "we're actually seeing the numbers go in the wrong direction, not just in iowa, but nationally, especially with young girls," said kim reynolds, lt. governor of iowa. " if we want to fill
5:34 am
we want to keep our young people in the state of iowa, this is an industry sector that's growing, that will continue to grow and provides tremendous opportunities." reynolds is scheduled to visit ikm-manning high school in march. reynolds also stopped by the new launchpad children's museum, in downtown sioux city, yesterday morning. she toured the new facility, and spoke with staff about the different tools available for kids. reynolds says the museum gives kids the opportunity to both play and learn. tuesday morning was designed for working women that want to grow and lead. ktiv's tiffany lane has the details on the message of empowerment... and what women business leaders can do in the workforce.

"the american express open survey ranked iowa women business "so one of the things we really have their own businesses, women who work with other organizations and really include everyone in the conversation." hundreds of women were able to have that conversation tuesday. will address things like the millenial mind, how to take feedback, what your body language says about how you present yourself. and just different opportunities to really help women improve their leadership development skills. those skills come with the understanding that there are more steps for women to take in leadership development. "take an issue as simple as getting dressed in the morning right, the guys have to decide between like the stone khakis and sand khakis and the women have to figure out for this particular meeting, or client or whatever, how do i figure out what the right match is. there's just more ways to go wrong." but business leaders say one way to address the challenges begins by learning how to take feedback. "we're going to talk about how to take charge of your own feedback and drive your own learning by being a better feedback receiver and it's just so important for women leaders maybe in particular who often get quite critical

those with grace." su "leaders at the event spoke about women's roles in the growing economy." "i think everybody knows that diversity in the workplace is what most businesses need to succeed and so women are almost 50 percent of the workforce and it really is an economic issue," said lt. gov. kim reynolds. debi durham, director of the iowa economic development authority referenced an article she read that said by 2028, women will control about 75 percent of the discretionary income. and students are part of that future, one nursing student says its important to learn from women leaders before entering the workforce. "i believe, especially in my field, you know it's mostly women, and we're always representing," said laura smith, a nursing student at western iowa tech community college. "we're always in leadership, always. and it's inspiring." just one example of the leadership iowa women lead change is hoping to promote. in south sioux city, nebraska, tiffany lane, ktiv news 4.>> more than 400 hundred women and

statistics. orthopedic surgeon, doctor alan hinton, says although the surgery is effective, the traditional approach of going beside or behind the hip joint, cutting through muscle, has had its flaws. (sot: dr. alan hinton, orthopedic surgeon) "the problem with that is the pelvis kind of wobbles back and forth while you're doing the surgery" doctor hinton says a newer technique called the anterior approach, allows the surgeon to work between muscles and tissues - and uses the hana table for a heightened range of motion. (sot: dr. alan hinton, orthopedic surgeon) "rather than going through the back of the hip through muscle or through the side, also through muscle, where you have to split muscle, doing an anterior approach we just move the muscles out of the way. it makes for a quicker recovery and a little bit less pain for the patient." charline andrepont can agree with that. she only spent one night in the hospital after undergoing the anterior approach hip replacement (sot: charline andrepont, patient) "i was just wanting to get out of pain and if it took

was willing to do it" (sot: dr. alan hinton, orthopedic surgeon) "we're able to lay the patient flat, so that their pelvis doesn't tilt and we can take intraoperativ e x-rays, real-time x- rays, of both hips and we can compare the length very, very accurately and also position the cup very, very accurately" andrepont says she's feeling great. for her, that change meant becoming like herself again - after several months being home-bound because of the pain. (sot: charline andrepont, patient) "when i felt like i wanted to get my clothes on and i did it all by myself, that's when i knew i was doing so much better" >> that was britney glaser reporting. the incision for the anterior approach is about four to five inches long. traditional hip replacement incisions are about eight inches long. coming up next.... local farmers get a crash course on how to better grow their crops. plus, american airlines is suing the company that provides their free wi-fi, claiming it's too slow.

you have a nice, easy recipe." w- "yes. this one is so easy. so, when i'm coming up with recipes, they really need to taste good first, and then kind of be healthy second, and this one is actually super simple, too, but we've made a spicy orange rice to go with it, which makes it seem like you put a lot more effort into it, maybe, or it seems a lot more restaurant style, but really it's still very simple. so i've made it into a lettuce wrap to keep it really light, but you could make this into a burrito or a taco, you know, use a tortilla if you wanted to do that. and i even went with some pre-cooked frozen shrimp that just needed to be thawed out, so, i went the really, really easy route here. you can use raw shrimp and cook it up so, um, whichever one you like. this works really well for a fast lunch, too, and for what we call planned-overs, so if you make extra, it works really well for the next day because you can eat it warm, at room temperature, or even cold.

going to want to ease into it, but it does really good, adds a really nice flavor with the mandarin oranges in there. and then all you do is layer that on some lettuce leaf or in a tortilla, however you want to, or you can just eat the rice- the orange rice and the shrimp alone by themself, too, would be great, and like i said, works really great for planned-overs as well to eat the next day." s- "sounds like a simple recipe, but we will have this recipe on our website, ktiv.com. it's nice, easy and it's a nice twist, too instead of just a typical fish for once." w- "yeah. it's something different that maybe you'd see more in a restaurant or a cafe, but that you can actually make at home really easily." s- "once again, the recipe, go to ktiv.com and look under the news link to find centsable health. thanks whitney, for stopping by today." w- "thank you." >> several siouxland teams trying to get to the girls state basketball tournaments. lawton bronson trying to advance against boyden-hull. and kingsley- pierson battles it out with trinity christian. highlights from those games coming up in sports fource morning wrap.

there is "more than enough t te" fofothe senate to consider a nomination to the supreme court this year, and he intends to move ahead with his choice. the president says he intends to nominate someone who is indisputably qualified for the seat that was held by the late antonin scalia. president obama says those who say he should leave the nomination to the next president are reading something into the constitution that just isn't there. " when there is a vacancy on the supreme court, the president of the united states is to nominate someone. the senate is to consnser that nomination. and eitherhey disapprove of that nominee, or that nominee is elevated to the supreme court." president obama says the senate has plenty of time to consider the record of a nominee that he presents and to make a decision. a special tribute to the late sueme court justice antonin scalal. in a court tradition dating back to the 19th

"if you look at the strong dollar, that really hurts oururmports right now and so even ththgh last year we had a banner year with imports or exports, 15.1 billion broke all records, we're going to be down probably double digits this year when the final accounting is done." durham says the state needs workers, but population growth is slow. she mentioned the aging population,

the jobs that "baby boomers" are leaving. one way she says iowa is addressing the issue is through programs like "home base iowa", and teaching students stem. durham says those can prepare them for the workforce at a young age. some sioux city students had a special visitor tuesday. iowa lieutenant t vernor kim reynolds began a stewide stem tour, in sioux city. at morningside elementary, she dropped into a few classes asking students about their various projects. reynolds also took a look at loess hillsls elementary's computer programming degnation. students showed off their coding prwjects. reolds says she sees tremendous opportunities in offering classes, like these, in elementary schools. "we're actually seeing the numbers go in the wrong direction, not just in iowa, but nationally, especially with young girls," said kim reynolds, lt. governor of iowa.

"so one of t t things we really try to work with are women who he their own businesses, women who work with other organizations and really include everyone in the conversation." hundreds of women were able to have that conversation tuesday. "our speakers are people who will address things like the millenial mind, how to take feedback, what your body language says about how you present yourself. and just different opportunities to really help women improve their leadership development skills. those skills come with the undersnding that there are more steps for women to take in leadership development. "take an issue as simple as getting dressed in the morning right, the guys have to decide between like the stone khakis and sand khakis and the women have to figure out for this particular meeting, or client or whatever, how do i figure out what the right match is. there's just more ways to go wrong." but business leaders say one way to address s e challenges begins by learning

"we're going to talk about how to take charge of your own feedback and drive your own learning by being a better feedback receiver and it's just so important for women leaders maybybin particular who often get quite critical feedback to learn how to hdle those with grace." su "leaders at the event spoke about women's roles in the growing economy." "i think everybody knows that diversity in the workplace is what most businesses need to succeed and so women are almost 50 percent of the workforce and it really is an econic issue," said lt. gov. kim reynolds. debi durham, director of the iowa economic development authority referenced an article she read that said by 2028, women will control abobo 75 percent of the discretionary income. and students are part of that future, one nursing student says its important to learn from women leaders before entering the workforce. "i believe, especially in my field, you know it's mostly women, and we're always representing," said laura smith, a nursing student at western iowa tech community college. "we' always in leadership, always. and it's inspiring." just one example of the leadership iowa women lead change is hoping to promote. in south sioux city, nebraska,
