madison, nebraska yesterday. flames were shooting out of the windows when crews arrived on the scene around noon. none of the nearby buildings caught on fire. however, a laundromat next door did receive mino damagege denison, iowa's police chief has admitted that the controversial memes, and images, that sparked a protest last week, were his. but, john emswiler says the images were from his personal work computer and were never meant for public view. he also says the pictures were stolen. former police officer y ohl, and officer bradley wendt, who's on administrative leave from the department, brought the images to the attention of city leaders. emswiler claims most of the photo-shopped pictures were from 2008, or earlier and the memes were from prior to 2010. emswiler claims a majority of the images were shared with the individuals in the pictures, and were intended as "private jokes". he doesn't know when the

but he says the images surfaced after ohohwas fired, and wendt was placed on leave. mayor daniel leen investigated the images, and disciplined emswiler, who remains the chief of police. today is the deadline for apple to respond to the department of justice's new court order issued over the phone belonging to one of the san bernardino terrorists. if the order stands up to legal challenges, apple would be forced to create a a w customized i- o-s firmware that would remove the passcode lockout on the seized i- phone. last week, ale reiterated its commitment to privacy and that it has "no connection" to what data may exist on the phone. federal authorities want apple to unlock the phone as part of the investigation. major changes are coming to the 108 parishes in the sioux city catholic diocese. in the end, dozens of parishes will close in an effort to strengthen and sustain its ministry. the diocese faces several challenges. mass attendance has fallen 27-percent since 2008.
5:05 am
registered cathoilic households has dropped more than seven- percent. add to that a projection that the diocese will have just 31 full-time priests by 2025, and diocese officials say the t te had come to makee major changes. ktiv's matt breen shows us what these changes mean for the diocese.
5:06 am
but, they will be reorganized into four "clusters". each cluster will have a pastor and an associate to celebrate mass at all of the sites." the clusters look like this: sacred heart becomes its own cluster. blessed sacrament and st. michael's will form the holy cross cluster. cathedral of the epiphany, st. boniface, and st. joseph will form the cathedral cluster. and, immaculate conception and nativity will form the mater dei cluster. "the same can't be said for 40 other parishes in the diocese, which will close," said matt breen. here's an example of the reorganizatio n: in this cluster the red dots represent parishes in sanborn, primghar, sutherland and sioux rapids, which would close in favor of parishes in hartley and spencer which will stay o en. closing a parish doesn't mean the church will close. instead, the diocese will move those churches to "oratory" status. mass will no longer be celebrated at those sites, but they can be used for catholic weddings and funerals. "what this does is it let us do the hard work now," said rev. brent lingle, director of pastoral planning. "we're going to know where we're going at least for the next 10 years. rather than, every year, a parish wondering 'i wonder if
5:07 am
year. i wonder if we'll have a priest?'" lingle says the proposed plan gives stability to the diocese, and the parishes, for the next ten years. >> now that the draft plan has been ininoduced, each pastor in the 108 existing parishes will foror a leadership team including lay people of parish. they'll get feedback on the plan from parishioners. that feedback will be forwarded to the diocese, which can make adjustments to the plan. the plan goes into effect in july of 2017. some siouxland 8th graders got a lesson in over-engineering thursday.

(suspect neighbor "he's a real nice guy. i wouldn't think he would done that. he was a good guy from what i know." i'm reid binion, reporting >> two people are homeless after a fire on main street in madison, nebraska yesterday. flames were shooting out of the windows when crews arrived on the scene around noon. none of the nearby buildings caught on fire. however, a laundromat next door did receive minor damage. denison, iowa's police chief has admitted that the controversial memes, and images, that sparked a protest last week, were his.
6:07 am
images were from his personal work computer and were never meant for public view. he also says the pictures were stolen. former police officer ray ohl, and officer bradley wendt, who's on administrative leave from the department, brought the images to the attention of city leaders. emswiler claims most of the photo-shopped pictures were from 2008, or earlier and the memes were from prior to 2010. emswiler claims a majority of the images were shared with the individuals in the pictures, and were intended as "private jokes". he doesn't know when the images were stolen. but he says the images surfaced after ohl was fired, and wendt was placed on leave. mayor daniel leinen investigated the images, and disciplined emswiler, who remains the chief of police. today is the deadline for apple to respond to the department of justice's new court order issued over the phone belonging to one of the san bernardino terrorists. if the order stands up to legal challenges, apple would be forced to create a new customized i- o-s firmware that would remove

pastoral planning. a years-worth of work yielded "ministry 2025", a plan to strengthen and sustain the ministry of the diocese. but, changes will be made. "we understand that the change is going to be difficult," lingle said. 40 of the 108 parishes in july of 2017. sunday masses in too many places that lingle said. eight parishes will be minimal," said matt breen. "they will stay open. but, they will be reorganized into four "clusters". each cluster will have a pastor and an associate to celebrate mass at all of the sites." the clusters look like this: sacred heart becomes its own cluster. blessed sacrament and st. michael's will form the holy cross cluster. cathedral of the epiphany, st. boniface, and st. joseph will form the cathedral cluster. and, immaculate conception and nativity will form the mater dei cluster. "the same can't be said for 40 other parishes in the diocese, which will close," said matt breen.
6:10 am
reorganizatio n: in this cluster the red dots represent parishes in sanborn, primghar, sutherland and sioux rapids, which would close in favor of parishes in hartley and spencer which will stay open. closing a parish doesn't mean the church will close. instead, the diocese will move those churches to "oratory" status. mass will no longer be celebrated at those sites, but they can be used for catholic weddings and funerals. "what this does is it let us do the hard work now," said rev. brent lingle, director of pastoral planning. "we're going to know where we're going at least for the next 10 years. rather than, every year, a parish wondering 'i wonder if we're going to be open next year. i wonder if we'll have a priest?'" lingle says the proposed plan gives stability to the diocese, and the parishes, for the next ten years. >> now that the draft plan has been introduced, each pastor in the 108 existing parishes will form a leadership team including lay people of parish. they'll get feedback on the plan from parishioners.

"nat pop sound dominos falling and cheering" the students at mater dei nativity in sioux city built "rube goldberg machins" for their science class. a rube goldberg machine is a contraption that is deliberately over-engineered to perform a simple task in a complicated way. "they had to use three different simple machines out of the six we learned about and have a minimum of five steps to complete whatever task they went with," said seth sackmann, a sixth grade science teacher at mater dei nativity. "my sixth period was mixing baking soda and vinegar." students used toy cars, dominos, homemade pulleys and other items to accomplish their goals "we used two different pulleys," said collin jackson, an eighth-grader at mater dei nativity.
