  • Honda recalls 900,000 Odyssey minivans after dozens of reported injuriesHonda recalls 900,000 Odyssey minivans after dozens of reported injuries

    Honda is recalling 900,000 Odyssey minivans after receiving 46 reports of injuries related to a problem that causes second-row seats to fall forward. The company announced the recall Saturday, November 18th, which includes models from 2011 to 2017. 800,000 of the affected minivans were sold in the U.S. Honda is offering instructions on its website on how to correctly latch the seats to correct the safety issue. The company released a statement reading, in part, “If a second row seat is not properly latched after adjusting it side-to-side or reinstalling a removed seat, the seat may tip forward during moderate to heavy breaking, increasing the injury to an occupant. This issue will not occur if a seat is properly latched.” Honda recommends Odyssey owners take their vans to a dealership immediately, where they will be fixed for free.

    MOLINE, Illinois-- Volunteers braved through the cold and rainy conditions to help revitalize the Floriciente neighborhood. They went door to door installing free mailboxes. Their goal was to install at least 70 on Saturday morning. The Floriciente Association received a grant through a partnership with an international development group called Global Communities. Board member of the Floriciente Association, Mary Ann Garcia, says they decided to install the mailboxes after realizing many homes had mailboxes in poor condition or none at all. "We decided that this would be a good way of helping the community." says Garcia. Each mailbox also has a yellow sticker that represents a flower and the letter 'f' for Floriciente. "We want people to come into our area and to recognize this as Floriciente neighborhood," says Garcia. For sign up questions contact the Floriciente Association or Global Communities.

  • Trump reinstates ban on trophy hunting, for nowTrump reinstates ban on trophy hunting, for now

    WASHINGTON, D.C.– President Donald Trump has reinstated a ban on trophy hunting amid public uproar. But that decision is not final. Last night, amid growing pressure from conservationists, celebrities, and even some conservatives , President Trump sent out this tweet: reversing his earlier announcement: Put big game trophy decision on hold until such time as I review all conservation facts. Under study for years. Will update soon with Secretary Zinke. Thank you! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 18, 2017 In 2014, the Obama administration implemented a ban on elephant trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia. Elephant tusks are a prized trophy for big game hunters, and the import ban was meant to protect the endangered animals. On November 16th, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced it was lifting the ban. Hunting groups applauded the move, but animal rights groups quickly condemned it. On November 17th, President Trump tweeted his is reversing that decision, for now. But the federal agency responsible for the ban still has on its website that it will issue permits for trophy hunting. In response, the Humane Society tweeted a video of an elephant with the caption, “I belong in the wild, not on a wall.” RT & sign the petition if you think we should stop the killing of elephants for trophies! https://t.co/mIi9mULhvC #SaveTheElephants pic.twitter.com/Zi28DhpyGv — Humane Society (@HumaneSociety) November 17, 2017 They’ve launched a petition, which celebrities like Ellen Degeneres have signed, to keep the trophy hunting ban in tact. President Trump has not given a timeline on when he’ll announce his final decision on the fate of the trophy ban.

  • Bundle up for a cold night! It will feel like the teens by Sunday morningBundle up for a cold night! It will feel like the teens by Sunday morning

    Cloud cover is clearing out this evening, and it’s going to be downright cold Saturday night! While actual temperatures will be falling into the low 20s, winds from the northwest will easily make it feel like the teens. Sunshine will be back for Sunday, but by no means will it warm us up much. We’ll only reach the upper 30s for daytime highs. However, warmer weather arrives on Monday as we climb up into the mid 50s! It will be breezy and sunny as well. We’ll remain sunny from Tuesday through Thanksgiving, but the cooler air will be back! Temperatures will fall into the low 40s on Tuesday, and we’ll drop into the mid 30s by Wednesday. Expect highs in the low 40s for our Thanksgiving holiday under a partly cloudy sky.

  • Wesley United Methodist Church reopens sanctuary months after EF2 tornadoWesley United Methodist Church reopens sanctuary months after EF2 tornado

    MUSCATINE, Iowa - Putting on the finishing touches before the pews are filled Sunday with people of faith. "We're incredibly excited, I know personally I'm a little nervous as well, it will be our first Sunday back in and we can't wait to show everyone what the space is," said Katie Roquet, Director of Media Ministries. In March of 2017, this sanctuary at Wesley United Methodist Church looked a lot different. An E-F 2 tornado tore off a big part of the roof, took out the chimney and destroyed the church organ. "This past eight months, we've really seen our congregations grow together and through this process and really make the community of Wesley stronger," said Roquet. The church has expanded the chapel, put in brand new carpeting and restored wood work that was done with pieces of wood from things destroyed in the tornado. "We really tried to keep the integrity of the building and the historical value while at the same time bringing in some a few modern touches," said Roquet. Insurance covered most of the cost but the church was able to raise $500,000 to help with repairs. "When we started, we were on the apprehension of, can we do this, is this too much and we have seen the community and our congregation just step up," said Roquet. Despite all of the changes one thing in the sanctuary never changed. "That cross has been here this entire time, it survived the tornado, it survived the organ coming crashing down around it, it stayed there through the whole construction," said Roquet. A symbol of faith, that the doors to this church would reopen, "I think we're gonna have a lot of different emotions happening on sunday," said Roquet. One thing is still missing and that's the organ. Church leaders are working on getting a new one but that process could take three to four years.

    PHOENIX – A Phoenix father came home to find a man inside his daughter’s closet with the girl’s underwear and pictures, according to KTVK. Police arrested Michael Zabalza Ruelas, of Glendale, who is facing one count of second-degree burglary. Police said on Thursday, Nov. 9, the family arrived home when they noticed their dog was barking at the closet. The father went to investigate and found Ruelas inside with photos of his 16-year-old daughter, her underwear and lotion, police said. The father then threatened to hit Ruelas with a crowbar and he took off out of the house, court documents said. He then drove away and the mother was able to get his license plate number, police said. Officers later spotted the suspect driving by the house and he was pulled over. After being arrested, police said Ruelas admitted to getting into the house through a window and “collected panties from different laundry baskets inside the house.” Ruelas said he took some of the underwear with him when he left the house, and the clothing items were inside the car when he was pulled over, according to police. He made his first court appearance and bond was set at $3,500. He’s had several run-ins with the law, including DUI, false reporting and failure to appear for a driving on a suspended license charge.

  • Police pursuit through farm fields and into Muscatine caught on cameraPolice pursuit through farm fields and into Muscatine caught on camera

    MUSCATINE, Iowa -- A police chase that started in rural Muscatine County and continued into the city resulted in minor injuries to an officer and the arrest of the vehicle's driver. The chase was captured on video and shared on social media by several individuals, including one farmer who shot the video from inside the cab of a tractor. The video below was shot by Reid Harris who was driving a piece of farm equipment along a gravel lane when he saw police pursuing a pickup truck through a harvested field. According to the Muscatine County Sheriff's Office, it all started when deputies attempted to stop a red 2001 Ford Truck at the intersection of Mulberry Rd. and 155th St, just north of Muscatine, around 9:30 a.m. on Friday, November 17. Rusty Wayne Wadden Officials say the truck was speeding and the driver, Rusty Wayne Wadden, 29, had warrants out for his arrest. The chase, which included speeds in excess of 100 mph, began when Wadden refused to stop. The pursuit made it's way into Muscatine, where Wadden hit a sheriff's squad car in the 2600 block of Park Avenue, also damaging stop lights at the intersection. The chase then continued through Muscatine, at speeds of up to 80 mph, before finally coming to an end in the 200 block of Roscoe Avenue when Wadden hit another sheriff's car and a retaining wall, police say. The ending of the chase happened right outside Dawne Miller's door. "You could have killed someone. There are children that walk this street going to school everyday. You could have killed somebody. You are lucky this is all that happened," says Miller. Wadden and the deputy sheriff from the collision on Roscoe were taken via ambulance to Unity Point Trinity hospital. The deputy sheriff suffered minor injuries and was released from the hospital but has not yet been cleared to go back to work. A deputy sheriff from the first accident on Park Avenue was treated for minor injuries and released, able to remain on duty. Wadden has not yet been released from the hospital. A second video of the chase was filmed in town by Russ Hebert, who captured the pursuit flying through an intersection. “It is unfortunate that we have to deal with individuals that have no regard for the law, or person’s lives or property.  The operation of the vehicle by Mr. Wadden today puts people at great risk, and we make every attempt to end those situations as quickly as possible," said Sheriff C.J. Ryan. Police say Wadden was wanted on warrants for parole violation and possession of marijuana, with additional charges pending as a result of Friday's chase.
