Summit Carbon Solutions prevails over Shelby and Story county ordinances - (12-6-23) – (Iowa Capital Dispatch) - On Monday, a federal judge permanently barred Shelby and Story counties from enforcing their ordinances that restrict the placement of carbon dioxide pipelines. Shelby and Story counties adopted restrictions after two companies proposed to build pipeline systems to transport captured carbon dioxide from ethanol plants and other facilities. Those ordinances set minimum distances to locate the pipelines away from cities, homes, schools and other sites. They also had some requirements that pertain to emergency response plans in case of a pipeline break. Summit Carbon Solutions sued the counties and argued that they lack the authority to impose the restrictions. They said the federal government is charged with regulating the pipelines’ safety and the Iowa Utilities Board has authority over their placement. Chief Judge Stephanie Rose of the federal Southern District of Iowa agreed. Rose granted Summit summary judgements in both lawsuits on Monday and issued permanent injunctions to block the counties from enforcing the ordinances. Rose ordered the counties to cease enforcement of their minimum-distance and safety requirements, give written notice to county employees of the injunctions and prove they have complied with the order within 10 days. Summit also has a pending lawsuit against Emmet County for a similar ordinance. The threat of litigation has prevented other counties from adopting pipeline ordinances.
Court turns down Woodbine man’s murder conviction appeal - (12-6-23) - (Radio Iowa) – The Iowa Court of Appeals has denied the appeal of a man convicted of murder following a 2020 bar fight in Harrison County. Kristofer Erlbacher, of Woodbine, was found guilty of first-degree murder after hitting and running over Caleb Solberg of Moorhead three times with his pickup outside a bar in Pisgah. Erlbacher appealed, saying he was acting in self defense and that he was intoxicated. The Court of Appeals ruling says Erlbacher told police he was scared, but if that were the case, he could have just driven away. The ruling also noted Erlbacher told others in the bar “I got this” before going to his pickup and running over Solberg, indicating he was not too intoxicated to carry out his plan.
Woodbury County Supervisor resigns vice-chair position, but stays on the Board - (12-6-23) – Jeremy Taylor, Woodbury County Supervisor, resigned from his position as vice-chair of the county Board of Supervisors Tuesday night. He will remain as a county supervisor. Taylor’s resignation was approved unanimously. Supervisor Mark Nelson was voted unanimously as the vice-chair for the rest of the 2023 session. Calls for Taylor to resign came after his wife, Kim Taylor, was found guilty of more than 50 counts of federal election fraud charges on November 21st. The fraud charges stem from when Jeremy Taylor was a candidate for US Representative of Iowa’s 4th District in June 2020 and again during the 2020 general election when he successfully ran for Woodbury County Supervisor, the seat he now holds. A trial brief in Kim Taylor’s case identified Jeremy Taylor as an “unindicted co-conspirator.” In the November 28th Supervisor meeting, County Auditor Patrick Gill asked supervisors to approve a request of the Iowa Attorney General to investigate Taylor’s actions. However, on Tuesday night, the board decided to not take any action on that resolution.
On-going clean-up of missile site near Missouri Valley - (12-6-23) – Public comments are being accepted through mid-December by the US Army Corps of Engineers regarding the on-going clean-up of a former missile site near Missouri Valley. The site near Missouri Valley was used for maintenance, storage and potential launch of missiles during the Cold war. Work began in 2013 to determine the extent of groundwater contamination in the area from TCE, a synthetic chemical that has been shown to cause kidney cancer after prolonged exposure. The Corps of Engineers has installed 28 filtration systems for residents who get their drinking water from wells in the area. The Corps regularly tests over 140 wells for contamination. The Corps clean up plan is also focused on removing contaminants from the soil. The 128 acre area was part of Offutt Air Force Base and known as Site 3 for the potential launch of Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. It was deactivated in 1964.

Adair County man sues City of Winterset and police officer - (12-6-23) – (Daily Nonpareil) - 42 year old Ryan P. Elgin of Adair County is suing the city of Winterset and Winterset Police Officer Logan Cam after he was arrested on an intoxicated driving charge after he passed field sobriety tests, two blood-alcohol tests and a drug screen. Elgin is suing for false arrest, unreasonable seizure and common law negligence. The lawsuit is being filed in US District Court for the Southern District of Iowa and is seeking unspecified damages. Elgin alleges that he was driving through Winterset shortly after 9 pm on October 15, 2022, along with Becky Oltmann and Oltman’s child when he was pulled over by Camp. The lawsuit claims Camp did not observe any traffic violations and or equipment violations that would have justified the stop. Elgin submitted to standardized field sobriety tests, such as the horizontal gaze test, the walk and turn test and the one-legged stand test, and allegedly displayed no signs of intoxication. Elgin then submitted to a preliminary breath test which indicated a blood alcohol concentration of .047, well below the legal limit of .08. Camp then detained Elgin for the purpose of conducting additional testing at the Madison County Law Enforcement Center. Elgin also consented to a second breath test which indicated a blood-alcohol level of .037. Camp then asked Elgin to provide a urine sample for a drug screen. Elgin complied and was released from custody shortly before 11 pm. Police records indicate that within an hour and before the results of the urine test were known, Camp notified the Iowa Department of Human Services for the potential child-endangerment charge and the state agency initiated an investigation. Two months later, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation’s Laboratory reported that a chemical analysis of Elgin’s urine showed the presence of Citalopram, a drug used to treat depression, which was consistent with Elgin’s admitted use of the doctor-prescribed medication. The report indicated there were no controlled substances in Elgin’s urine. Police records show that after consulting with his supervisor, Camp obtained an arrest warrant for Elgin on charges of operating a vehicle while under the influence and child endangerment. Camp then informed the Iowa Department of Transportation that Elgin had tested positive for Schedule I or Schedule II controlled substances and the DOT initiated a license-suspension proceeding seeking to revoke Elgin’s driving privileges for one year. In April of this year, the criminal charges were dismissed by county prosecutors. Because court records related to the case have been expunged, there is no public record detailing the position of county prosecutors in dismissing the matter. The city’s arrest report confirms the test results as described in the lawsuit, but the police report also states that Camp believed Elgin smelled strongly of alcohol and that Elgin displayed “clues of intoxication” prior to his arrest. The report states that in December 2022, when Camp called Elgin to inform him of his impending arrest, Elgin responded by laughing and saying “Good Luck” before hanging up and turning himself in. Camp and the city of Winterset have yet to file a response to the lawsuit.
State income tax collections down $243 million since July - (12-6-23) – (Radio Iowa) – The latest information from Legislative Services agency shows a 243 million dollar drop in Personal Income tax payments to the State of Iowa over the past five months. In October, the 3 person panel that sets an estimate of state tax receipts predicted state income tax payment should drop, mostly due to the tax reduction plan Governor Reynolds signed into law. For the first five months of the state fiscal year, there’s been a more than 12 percent decline in income tax payments to the state compared to the same period a year ago. That is a larger drop than had been predicted, but recent accounting changes in state government make direct comparisons difficult.

Jake Rowley, the Midwest team leader for the non-profit United Cajun Navy search and rescue organization, said on social media Sunday night, that they weren’t conducting any organized searches for 53-year-old David Schultz, of Wall Lake.

David was a truck driver and had to deliver a load of hogs from Eagle Grove to Sac City, but he never made it to Sac City. His truck was found the next morning on Highway 71 on the road about seven miles north of Sac City, with the trailer still fully loaded with the hogs. David’s wallet and phone were found in the semi and his jacket was found in a nearby ditch. David is a white male who is approximately 5-feet, 11-inches tall and weighs about 180 pounds. He has brown hair and eyes. He was last known to be wearing Wrangler jeans, cowboy boots, and a Peterbilt hat. Anyone with information about David Schultz or where he may be is asked to call the Sac County Communications Center at 712-662-7127. In the update announcing they were temporarily suspending searches, Rowley said that they have so far searched more than 100,000 acres and feel they may have exhausted all possible locations. Instead, they will be focused on “specialized teams and investigators to try and receive any new leads” as they work with law enforcement.
