DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Gov. Terry Branstad on Monday issued a disaster proclamation for two more Iowa counties affected by recent severe weather.

September 23rd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

A truck driver from southeast Iowa was injured during a single-vehicle accident Monday afternoon in Pottawattamie County. The Iowa State Patrol says 55-year old Phillip G. McCarty, of Ottumwa, was driving a 3007 International tractor-trailer and had begun to pull over, onto the shoulder, to adjust some load straps.

In the process, the rig went too far off the shoulder and both the tractor and trailer overturned into the ditch, with the tractor coming to rest on the passenger side and the trailer on its tops.

McCarty, who was wearing his seat belt, was transported to Mercy Hospital by Neola Rescue. The accident happened at around 3:45-p.m., Monday.

Hatch campaign suspends ads in 2 TV markets

News

September 22nd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The campaign of Democratic candidate for governor Jack Hatch has suspended television ads in two Iowa markets and changed its advertising strategy in two others but denies it’s a sign the campaign is struggling financially. “We’re just redistributing how we’re doing some things to reflect the polling that we’re seeing,” said Grant Woodard, Hatch’s campaign manager. Woodard said as polls change “we’re going to make decisions accordingly.”

Television ad buys in the Sioux City and Davenport markets have been placed on hold and ad schedules on Des Moines and Cedar Rapids stations have been changed. Branstad’s campaign manager, Jake Ketzner, said it’s a signal the Hatch campaign is struggling to find the money to stay on television. “The story is, it’s 43 days out and he’s broke and he can’t be on TV,” Ketzner said.

Branstad is running ads in nearly all of Iowa’s major television markets in addition to Mason City, Ottumwa and Quincy, Illinois, which reaches into the state’s southeast corner, Ketzner said. Campaign financial reports show Hatch’s campaign had $183,000 in cash on hand in July, the most recent reporting period for which records are available. Branstad’s committee had $4 million.
