Here is the latest Iowa news from The Associated Press

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A young pig has won a reprieve from the frying pan just as Iowa’s popular bacon festival is about to begin. Governor Terry Branstad pardoned the 30-pound, 2 ½-month-old Berkshire pig named Bonnie yesterday morning.

SABULA, Iowa (AP) — For history buffs it might be the deal of a lifetime — an historic steel truss Mississippi River bridge free for the taking. There’s a catch though. The 1932 structure that connects Sabula, Iowa with Savanna, Illinois must be maintained at its new location forever. The Illinois Department of Transportation says before it considers demolition, it is required by federal regulations to offer the bridge to the public for free because it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa City woman charged in the fatal beating of her young son will live at home until she goes to trial. Nineteen-year-old Mireya Balderas will live at home with her father under the custody of the Iowa Department of Corrections.

STATE CENTER, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa High School Athletic Association official says two high schools are working out what should be done about an obscene message sent by one high school wrestling team to another. The Des Moines Register says the insult was written one letter at a time on the arms of the wrestlers lined up for a picture of the West Marshall High School team in State Center on Tuesday.
