Here is the latest Iowa news from The Associated Press…

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Expanding access to publicly funded preschool in Iowa is a top priority for Democrats in the legislature this year, but it’s not clear Republican Governor Terry Branstad or Republican lawmakers are on board with the idea. Senator Herman Quirmbach, a Democrat from Ames, says he has been working on legislation to expand the Iowa Statewide Voluntary Preschool Program.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An illness among cats has forced a pet adoption center in Iowa City to stop feline adoptions until staffers can resolve the problem. KWWL-TV reports the Iowa City Animal Care and Adoption Center has halted visits to its cat room until at least later today as workers deal with several sick cats.

OYENS, Iowa (AP) — A northwest Iowa town is losing its ambulance service because of a lack of volunteers. KTIV reports Oyens is going to have to rely on the nearby towns of Le Mars and Remsen to provide ambulance service. But that will likely mean slower responses to emergencies.

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Khristian Smith scored 19 points, including a dunk and free throw to give Indiana State a five-point lead with 1:13 left, as the Sycamores held on to beat Drake 60-56 on Sunday. Drake’s Karl Madison made a layup with 58 seconds left to pull the Bulldogs within three and had a chance to tie the game at 59 with 5 seconds left, but Aaron Hawley’s shot was off the mark.

DNR urging snowmobilers to stay on designated trails

The death of a 13-year-old boy in a snowmobile accident in northwest Iowa is bringing attention to off-road vehicle safety. The teenager, Raymond Gatzemeyer of Fonda, died last Wednesday when he hit a rope suspended between the pillars of a bridge. David Downing, with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, says such dangers are common when crossing someone’s property. “Often during the year those landowners make changes to the property, they may put up a cable between a gate, they may have a suspension wire coming down off a corner post, and those types of hazards are unmarked,” Downing says.

There are plenty of places to ride in Iowa that are safe, according to Downing. “We have more than 8,000 miles of designated snowmobile trails in the state,” Downing says, “and those trails are groomed and they’re marked so you know where the hazards are. That’s why we always recommend that folks stay on those trails.” At the time of the accident, Gatzemeyer was with three other people, two who were on snowmobiles and one who was operating an ATV. They were not injured. It’s unclear why there was a rope attached to the bridge pillars. Gatzemeyer was wearing a helmet. Downing made his comments on Iowa Public Radio’s “River to River” program.

Northwest Iowa town losing ambulance service

News

February 9th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

OYENS, Iowa (AP) — A northwest Iowa town is losing its ambulance service because of a lack of volunteers. KTIV reports Oyens, Iowa, is going to have to rely on the nearby towns of Le Mars and Remsen to provide ambulance service. But that will likely mean slower responses to emergencies. Oyens Ambulance Director Dan Cronin says it’s hard to attract new volunteers. There aren’t many people willing to commit the time needed to become certified.

Cronin says he hopes to assemble a group of volunteers later this year who are willing to serve as first responders in medical emergencies. Those people could help stabilize patients until an ambulance arrives.
