above the obstacles in place and look to the american
horizon. to a nation where every child can not only dream of going to college, but attend one. where quality healthcare will be a birthright of every citizen. where a good job is not a wish, but a reality. where women receive equal pay and a living wage is paid to all. an america where after a lifetime of labor, there is time for rest and grandchildren. a nation that defends our people and our values, but no longer carries so much of that burden alone. i know we can create that america if we listen to our hearts. and that journey begins here in iowa. i'm bernie sanders. i approve this message, and i ask you to join with us at the caucuses on monday night. thank you.

"our son struggled with something he couldn't put his finger on"many who were left searching for answers after the sudden death of former iowa hawkeye football star tyler sash in september now have a better answer... "when you see pictures of your son's brain and someone elses brain and you see the damage it's done, there's no turning back."medical experts diagnosed the 27 year old with c-t-e, a progressive degenerative disease caused by repetitive brain trauma... "we had so much fun but now being on the other side of the coin, looking at it i think it's a serious discussion parents are going to have to have with their children"tyler suffered from at least 5 concussions in his football career which included time with the new york giants "there were times he was the sweet guy that he was and then times that he was not."... "tyler was forgetful, he would have a hard time completing a task."experts say the amount of cte they found was more than normal for someone his age, something
style of play. "my son just played as hard as he could, all the time and i think it got him into trouble."it's led her to question the sport entirely...

group took over the refuge on january second - in part to protest the sentencing of two ranchers and to make a stand against what they
