Some ammunition harder to find in Nebraska, Iowa

News, Sports

February 18th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Ammunition for certain guns is hard to find in Nebraska and Iowa because people worried about the possibility of tougher gun control are buying it up. Demand for ammunition and guns took off after the Dec. 14 shooting in Newtown, Conn., that took the lives of 20 schoolchildren and six adults. The shortages are apparent at gun shows and many stores. Dealers say .223-caliber ammunition used in semiautomatic rifles, 9mm bullets and even .22-caliber bullets seem to be in short supply.

Terry Edwards of Palmyra, Neb. says ammunition supplies were already tight before demand surged. At a gun show in Altoona, Iowa, dealer Kevin King says many customers are afraid they won’t be able to buy the amount they want in the future, so they’re stocking up now.

ISU’s Okoro plays through family tragedy

Sports

February 18th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State freshman guard Kerwin Okoro got a brief respite from an extremely painful time when his basket capped an 87-53 victory over TCU on Saturday. It was the first action in two months for Okoro, who had just returned from his brother Idiongo’s funeral in New York. Idiongo died earlier this month of colon cancer at just 28 years old, just two months after Okoro said his 72-year-old father, Stanislaus Okoro, died of a stroke. Kerwin Okoro says the reception he got from his teammates and Cyclones fans shows how much the program has become like a family to him.

Governor Says 9,000 Signed Online Olympic Petition

February 18th, 2013 by Jim Field

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Gov. Terry Branstad says 9,000 people have signed an online petition aimed at keeping wrestling in the Olympics.

Branstad launched the petition drive last week at the state high school wrestling tournament after the International Olympic Committee decided to remove the sport from the Olympic Games in 2020.

The governor gave the newest count of online petitioners from the Let’s Keep Wrestling campaign website at a news conference Monday.

The move to end wrestling at the Olympics surprised many because the sport had been part of the Olympics for more than a century.
