hampshire spoke out and the results were quite different. we will begin our show breaking down the winners and the losers of tuesday's first in the nation primaries. the word being used to describe the two winners has been anti- establishnment. bernie sanders and donald trump both took home sizeable wins last night. lukas let's take a look at those final numbers. sanders, expected to win big near his home turf. he did just that with 60% support. on the republican side, donald trump more than doubled his closest competitor ... ohio governor john kasich a surprising second. more on that in just a minute. ted cruz took third, jeb bush fourth. marco rubio placed fifth. followed by chris christie, carly fiorina and ben carson. lukas to get more prospective on the race, we are joined by abc political analyst cokie roberts. thanks for being with us today cokie, i wanted to ta about john kasich, is it surprising to see him finish in
been polling so low? surprising to see him finish in second, when he's been polling so low? cokie roberts response.................. ................................ ..... lukas we've already heard a-b-c report that chris christie will end his candidacy today. is it safe to say we might see others ending their campaigns as
response.................. ................................ ..... lukas back to the two winners from last night, here is scott mclean with a breakdown of the potentially record setting day in new hampshire. " " they began as longshots...now...th ey are waking up winners in the granite state. donald trump and bernie sanders sailed to victory just as the polls predicted-- both
and promising big changes. (donald trump/ (r) presidential candidate) we are going to start winning again. and we are gonna win so much you are going to be so happy. we are going to make america so great again.. maybe even greater than before. (bernie sanders/ (d) presidential candidate) what began last week in iowa... what voters here confirmed tonight... is nothing short of a political revolution ohio governor john kasich suprised many with a strong second place finish. with the establishment candidates splitting votes, new hampshire did little to define a republican challenger to take on donald trump and ted cruz. a disappointing finish for marco rubio -- robbing his campaign of the momentum it had from a strong finish in iowa. rubio blamed his performance in the last debate. (sen. marco rubio/(r) presidential candidate): "i did not ... i did not do well on saturday night so listen to this. that will never happen again." new hampshire also delivered a painful personal blow to hillary clinton. she barely eeked out a win in iowa and has now lost the first primary by more than 20 points. (hillary clinton/ (d)
we're going to fight for every vote in every state, we're going to fight for real solutions that make a real difference in people's lives. lukas: water quality in iowa has been a hot topic as of late. controversy over hot topic as of late. controversy over how to regulate agricultural practices to protect water quality in iowa is again taking center stage. " how many more billions can we spend, without seeing any real progress without changing the approach? study say what's being done by farmers to protect our rivers... isn't experts on the northwest iowa biggest challenge is getting producers their options. abc9 news plue tells us more. "i think everybody sees degraded water quality but we are hoping to make enprovements and by giving the farmers educating, and providing tools for implementing, it'd help with improving water quality," says
coordinator for the wqi project in the headwaters of the north raccoon. watershed project coordinator, anita patrick, said theres a variety of tools farmers can use when trying to improve water conservation. while many of the tools and practices are readily available, patrick says the biggest challenge is getting those informed..and united. "we do recognize that farmers can do their part and we are focusing on equipting local farmers and producers and landowners with tools that help them make environmentally sound decisions," says patrick from choosing to implement cover crops like winter hardy cereal rye or perenial grasses to utilizing nitrogen sensing technology, patrick assures landowners that there's a conservation method for every situation, it's just a matter of choosing the right one. "with the watershed management plan, we hope to prioritize different conservation practices and match them up to different locations," says patrick. patrick doesn't believe that making mandatory laws governing farming practices would be effective since all farm lands are different and require a different set of standards. "we recognize that every oporation is different and there's no one single practice that's going to fit the issues. it's going to take a whole suit of practices, it's going to take cooperation, everybody to make it work," says patrick. lukas: and that study is not associated with an ongoing legal battle lukas:
with an ongoing legal battle between des moines water works and several siouxland water districts.. but it does cover some of the same issues. des moines water works is sueing the upstream counties, seeking reimbursement for more than a million dollars worth nitrate removal from water taken from the raccoon river. supervisors from buena vista, sac and calhoun counties are all named in the lawsuit. in it ... it states farmers should follow regulations in the clean water act. the case is still tied up in litigation. lukas: a proposed cell
neighborhood is causing an uproar. several siouxlanders living in the morningside area gathered at city hall to attend the board of adjustments meeeting... speaking out against the proposed tower. the board of adjustment was asked by city council to take another look at a recent vote by city planning and zoning... approving a conditional construction permit for the cell tower. concerned citizens say they viewed the meeting as a chance to present evidence opposing the project this wouldve been their last opportunity to presend eveidence, however the board did not allow them another hearing , their previous decision was final. not sit well with neighbors meeting. there is a long list of reasons they don't want the towers in their backyard. lukas one of siouxland's oldest non-profit organizations is celebrating a special anniversary. the ymca of siouxland...known now as the norm waitt sr. ymca, has been a staple in the siouxland community for one hundred and
time in siouxland, millions of people have walked through its doors and the impact in the community is still felt today. "228,000 visits that is come through the doors annually so to know that 130 years worth of that is just amazing to see. there are former board members, current members that say "i grew up in the y, my parents were y members since they were kids, since they moved to sioux city." to know that so many people have so many memories and so many positive connotations is fantastic to see and to know that we can continue on and do more and future generations will grow up and their kids will end up at the y too." a-b-c 9 news is a proud partner of the y and helps support a number of its programs. lukas norfolk junior and senior high school students will get to help tell the story of their home town's first 150 years. paul huges has this story and more " " some significant road and street construction is planned in and around norfolk during the next construction year.

wednesday... and millions of people will be eating fish today. so howard has a recipe that is so good... it will make you feel like fish in the water. "with today being ash wednesday, christians around the world are receiving ashes to recognize the beginning of lent. and beyond the many observances that take place during this time, many of you will be eating a lot more fish. so to help keep things exciting, we came up with a new fish dish that i know you're gonna love. we start off by cutting about a pound and a half of fish fillets into individual portions. or even easier . you can buy them pre- portioned from the freezer case. we lay them on a baking dish, and set them aside for a sec while we mix together some sour cream, parmesan cheese, paprika and a little salt and pepper. now we spoonhis over each fillet and finish them off with a bit of italian breadcrumbs. this is gonna add a ton of flavor. right before popping these in the oven we drizzle on some melted butter and that's it. and if you're wondering "what's the best fish to use", we like a mild white fish like, cod, haddock or farm- raised catfish. when this comes out of the oven, piping hot, you'll get the creaminess of the sour cream blended with the parmesan, which is one amazing combo. it's so good, i hope you'll go online and get the recipe for our, "sour cream crowned fish fillets" so you'll have a new way to keep things interesting. i'm howard in the mr. food test kitchen, where today we found a "flavor- packed way" for you to say . "ooh it's so good!!" " lukas: if you would like a
