10:05 pm
its just really unusual for that to happen on a tuesday morning. and that seems to be what every neighbor on lindner street in waterloo is saying...after police catch an escaped mental patient on their steet..just blocks from covenant hospital. joe lingua/witness - i looked out the window and there was about four or five squad cars out here and they had him down on the ground, handcuffing him. and he was screaming bloody murder that they were going to kill him or something." police say 36 year old joshua rohner was in the emergency room before he stole an ambulance and took off.. crews are seen here repairing the damages after he alegedly drove out through a closed door. he didnt make it too far...police say he ditched the ambulance and was walking down lindner street, a few blocks away.. looking for another car.

10:06 pm
says his son is a good man but he's struggling with drug addiction right now...he's hoping his son can receive the help he needs..he was also worried, wondering how his son was able to get out? ...meanwhile neighbors are asking the same thing- hoping it wont happen again. i dont want to see that again a nearby school was briefly put on lockdown until the situation was a nearby school was briefly put on lockdown until the situation was resolved. the des moines school district's horticulture program is searching for a missing s-u-v. the black 19-99 suburban and other equipment were stolen from mccombs middle school over the weekend. 14:37-14:56 the suburban was purchased by the program, the fund from the horticulture, we have a really successful business here and the money goes back to the kids program and the school ... its a
10:07 pm
the s-u-v should be hard to miss. it has school district license plate and bumper sticker reading "we give a crop about agriculture." if you see it please call des moines police. a council bluffs man was caught on camera running a red light last week.. and he's happy about it, even after getting a 100-dollar ticket in the mail..... the driver responded with this... a thank you letter to the council bluffs police department. it reads in part.. "i don't know what i was doing and concentrating on when i was driving, and that scares the hell out of me! i generally think i'm a good, safe driver, but now i see i need to be much better." it appears, whomever president obama nominates to the supreme court will never end up serving on the supreme court. i think take it a step at a time. i'm going to take it a step at time. i will take it a step at a time. that what he said last week.. but now we learn there's not
10:08 pm
next step. senator charles grassley heads the senate judiciary committee. today, he announced the committee will not consider a nominee to the u-s supreme court until after the presidential election. in a letter announcing that decision.. senator grassley used the words of democratic senator harry reid from 20-05. at that time reid stated, "the duties of the senate are set forth in the u.s. constitution. nowhere in that document does it say the senate has a duty to give the presidential nominees a vote." iowa democrats have raised doubts... but just last week the department of human services announced it was ready to move forward with plans to privatize the state medicaid system. if i called cms would they say everythig is ready to go and everything is marked completed and we're going to move forward march first. couldn't speak for cms i don't know how they'd respond to that , but what i do know is, so we really don't know, we believe we are ready march first. today c-m-s did call... to say
10:09 pm
says the three private companies that will take over the system are still training case managers.. and likely won't be finished until after march first. that... in part is why c-m-s is delaying the change for another month. in a letter to the iowa department of human services... c-m-s writes... "although we understand the state's preference to move forward on march 1, the april 1 effective date provides additional time for iowa to complete activities needed to ensure a smooth transition. they're already legal in most of the country... and now a majority in the iowa house want to make suppressors legal in iowa. this morning this morning, represetatives approved their use on firearms. the device reduces the sound of gunfire by 20-to-30 percent. here's what it sounds like... the second shot you hear is with a suppressor. nats gunshots supporters say the sound reduction helps protect the hearing of hunters and target shooters.
10:10 pm
protect the hearing of hunters and target shooters. opponents say gun owners should but earplugs. 'earplugs a good thing, suppressors not so much.' 'i think there is too much danger involved to legalize one more offensive weapon to be a non-offensive weapon in iowa.' they are for hearing protection, a suppressor itself is not a weapon, its an accessory thats put on a firearm just to cut down the noise as a hearing protection device.' also approved in the house today... a measure allowing a person riding an a- t-v or snowmobile to carry a loaded gun... and a measure prohibiting gun confiscation in iowa during a state of emergency. a clive hunter finally has his

fertilizer plant... but a subcontractor is worried about a different bill... his own. we brought you the story yesterday... liens, lawsuits, and claims of unpaid bills in lee county. a u-s senate candidate says it a sign the worst is still to come.. orascom planned to open the plant earlier this year... but several work stoppages have delayed the timeline. just yesterday... a subcontractor filed a federal lawsuit against orascom. the suit claims the contractor hasn't been paid since october and is owed
10:16 pm
the state historical building has a unique problem... the building is too big... 03:10:37-10:47 what we would do in this proposal is right size the building, we would have the right amount of space for example for the exhibits, for the collection storage now here's what they mean by "right-sizing" the building. the current building is 233- thousand square feet. right sizing it would remove the east side of the building reducing it to 155- thousand square feet. a cafe and retail space would go in on the south side.. and the portion of the building that was removed would
10:17 pm
03:11:10-03:11:23 what we know is we have a real challenge because we haven't necessarily had the funding to keep up with the square footage that we've had so there have actually been exibits that have been on display since this building opened 28 years ago funding will again be the issue for the proposed changes. the total cost is 82-million dollars.. and organizers hope 65-million of that is approved by lawmakers this session. a davenport attraction is also in need of a renovation... this is video of the ferris wheel at modern woodmen park last week. you can see the gondolas swinging wildly in the 60-mile per hour wind. several were damaged.... and one had to be removed because of fears it would fall. "we have the manufacturer actually out here now taking a look at things and patching everything up and trying to figure out the best way to move forward to prevent any winds from doing anything again." the manufacturer might not be the best consultant. last year the gondolas were
10:18 pm
the manufacturer advised them to just cover the gondolas with a tarp. the tarps caught the wind.. likely
