Friday, November 15th, 2019 Today's Weather Outlook - Skies have been mostly clear across Iowa through the overnight hours with mainly light and variable winds.

A light glazing of ice or dusting of snow will be possible.

First Flu-Related Deaths of the Season - The Iowa Department of Public Health has announced the first flu-related deaths of the 2019-2020 influenza season. They include an older adult (61-80 years of age) from Central Iowa, and an elderly (81+ years of age) Northwest Iowa woman. Both women had underlying conditions or contributing factors. Officials say this week flu activity in Iowa has increased to local spread, indicating that the virus is present in Iowa communities. IDPH Medical Director Dr. Caitlin Pedati says these deaths are an unfortunate reminder that flu can be a serious illness. The CDC recommends that essentially everyone over 6 months of age should receive the flu vaccine. It takes up to two weeks after vaccination for the body to achieve full benefit against the flu virus. The flu is a respiratory illness caused by viruses. Symptoms may include fever, headache, tiredness, cough, sore throat, nasal congestion and body aches. Illness typically lasts two to seven days, and often puts healthy people in bed for days.

3 Chicago men sentenced for opioid trafficking - On Tuesday, 35 year old Kentriss Thomas Rhodes, 33 year old Ashley S. Fleming, and 45 year old Antoine Sanders, all of Chicago were sentenced Tuesday in Council Bluffs US District Court for their part in a Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance – Oxycodone. The investigation of the three began on August 16th of last year, when the Council Bluffs Police Department responded to a call from the Madison Avenue Hy-Vee on a report of a fraudulent prescription being presented at the store’s pharmacy. Council Bluffs police arrested two individuals who had presented the forged prescription, and then obtained assistance from the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement and the Drug Enforcement Administration. The two agencies determined that the two arrested people were working for a Chicago organization that was sending out groups of people to obtain oxycodone by forging prescriptions and presenting them to area pharmacies. They used vulnerable adults from Cedar Rapids to present forged prescriptions for the oxycodone. Using this method, they obtained oxycodone from Council Bluffs, Cedar Rapids, Des Moines and a number of other locations in Iowa, plus Nebraska, Illinois, Missouri, and South Dakota. They obtained or attempted to obtain over 6,500 oxycodone pills over a 9 month period. Rhodes was sentenced to 72 months in prison, Fleming was sentenced to 46 months in prison, and Sanders was sentenced to 110 months in prison. All three were also ordered to serve three years of Supervised Probation upon release. The case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.

Propane shortage leads to emergency declaration – Radio Iowa Due to the extreme demand for propane, an emergency declaration is being issued for Iowa and several other Midwestern states by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Deb Grooms, C-E-O of the Iowa Propane Gas Association, says part of the problem is that farmers across the region are trying to complete their harvest at the same time. Farmers are saying that it’s taking a lot more to dry the corn because it’s coming out so wet, so they’re using a lot more propane than anticipated for drying the corn this year. The emergency declaration means truckers hauling the propane don’t have to count the time they sit in line at a terminal against the hours they’re on the road transporting it. The other states covered under the declaration are Illinois, Missouri, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska and South Dakota. Some farmers have volunteered to delay drying their corn so deliveries can be made to homeowners and livestock producers who depend on the propane to keep themselves and their animals warm.
Combatting loneliness is a must for all, particularly older Iowans – Radio Iowa Loneliness is becoming a serious epidemic among senior citizens nationwide, especially in states like Iowa with much older populations. Loneliness has been linked to greater risk of heart disease. It has been found that being lonely on a regular basis is the equivalent to smoking 15 cigarettes a day. We know that loneliness may speed the onset of dementia. We also know that loneliness shortens life. While the signs of loneliness can be concealed, they often come during a change of circumstance in a person’s life. Retiring from a career, health issues, or the death of a loved one can all lead to isolation. Forty-three percent of America’s seniors are lonely. Often, folks are suffering from loneliness and don’t even necessarily know how incredibly serious it is — or can be — for their health. Potential signs of loneliness may include: poor eating habits, loss of interest in personal hygiene or appearance, significant clutter in the home, a general lack of interest or withdrawal. Combatting loneliness is a five-part process, with the first steps being: learn about the epidemic, take an online loneliness assessment, discover what help is available, and then seeking out that help. Step five is to make the choice of which solution is best for you. There’s a lot of different options out there that can help you combat loneliness or a loved one combat loneliness. Raising awareness and fighting loneliness are priorities as a sense of community can make a world of difference in seniors’ lives.
Branstad’s request to get rid of jury verdict rejected - A request by former Governor Terry Brandstad’s lawyers to set aside a jury verdict that concluded Branstad had discriminated against a former state official because he’s gay has been rejected by a district court judge. The ruling filed Tuesday rejects dozens of arguments, including challenges to legal rulings during trial and jury instructions. Branstand’s attorneys asked the judge to set aside the July 15th jury verdict of $1.5 million awarded to former Iowa Workers’ Compensation Commissioner Chris Godfrey. The jury had concluded Godfrey was the victim of discrimination and retailiation when Branstad tried to force him to quit in 2011 and when Godfrey didn’t, cut his pay. Branstad’s attorney Frank Harty asked McCall in a July 31 motion to dismiss the lawsuit or order a new trial. Harty says the verdicts are unsupported by substantial evidence and are contrary to law. McCall concluded that substantial evidence exists to support the jury’s conclusions. The bill to Iowa taxpayers for the case stands now at about $8 million if the verdict isn’t reversed.
It’s Diabetes Awareness Month - Approximately 1 in 11 Iowans has some form of diabetes and about 1 in 3 Iowa adults has prediabetes, a condition in which blood glucose or sugar levels are high, but not high enough yet to be classified as type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes and people with this condition are at higher risk for heart disease, stroke and serious diabetes-related complications. It’s important to know if you have prediabetes or diabetes. According to Andrew Minear, Iowa Department of Public Health Diabetes Prevention coordinator, most people with prediabetes don’t know they have it and about 1 in 4 people who already have diabetes are also unaware they have it and are at risk for severe diabetes-related complications. The IDPH encourages Iowans who do not have diabetes to take a quick one-minute risk test at Do I Have Prediabetes.org to determine their risk. If you have prediabetes, the National Diabetes Prevention Program can help prevent or delay type 2 diabetes.
