sub-state game against boone may have even more significance... good evening. i'm erin kiernan. and i'm dan winters. thank you for joining us. on monday, we shared how the perry players faced racially-charged chants from a handful dallas center-grimes fans. tonight... the fans from the two school cheered together as one... channel 13's justin surrency has the story. "something like that you really don't get over. it's something that sticks with you for life..."but instead of making excuses... "we were definitely in the wrong, our student body.:"students from d-c-g met with perry students early thursday and used the evening's boone vs perry boys sub-state game to make amends and teach their fellow

"maybe educate them more because we don't have a very diverse school at all." "i think perry is 48 percent so i think it's understanding their side." and perry learned from d-c-g "the few that did those chants and said those things were not a full representation of that school.at a neutral site in johnston, perry also welcomed students from ankeny, des moines lincoln, johnston and greene county... "it shows how united we can be not just with our own school but with diversity and here to have fun." students say it was a select few in the stands monday that tarnished the mustangs name three days ago...but now a different group of d-c-g teenagers with courage and honor put that burden on their backs to show perry the respect they deserve... hoping that other schools can take from this and realize whatever they are saying can have an effect on players and on the community and such." proving that no matter

acceptance not exclusion...these two schools understand what can make america great again... "how everyone is accepted, everyone is united, it doesn't matter your race, exclusion...these two schools understand what can make america great again... "how everyone is accepted, matter your race, just going to be accepted... the dallas center grimes their student government group has brain-stormed the idea of a mutual program with perry that could help introduce their students to more diversity... it was obvious donald trump is the republican front-runner during tonight's debate because the other four candidates went right after him... po-127th for example, your the only one on this stage who's hired people illegally... you haven't hired one person in your life it wasn't just an attack over
10:03 pm
you haven't hired one person in your life it wasn't just an attack over illegal immigration tonight... senator ted cruz went on the offensive... questioning trump's republican credentials. , who does he want the most, who does he like the most? harry reid said 'donald trump.' why? because donald has supported him in the past and he knows that he can cut a deal with him. you know what donald? i don't want a supreme court justice because you cut a deal with harry reid to undermine to religious liberty /cause that same justice will also erase the second amendment from the bill of rights." presidential candidate "when you say crazy zealot are you talking about you? crazy zealot, give me a break." that was the final debate ahead of the biggest day on the presidential nominating schedule... marcv first... voters in 14-states will make their pick for president on super tuesday... . nearly 7-hundred delegates will be awarded on the republican side....and more than a thousand for the democrats. not everyone will be watching

has been called to the president's office.. he invited the senate majority leader, the senate minority leader, the chair of the senate judiciary committee and the ranking member of the senate judiciary committee to come to the white house and sit in the oval office and have a conversation to continue consulting about the process about filling that vacancy it could be a short meeting. senator grassley plans to personally tell the president what he's already said in public... in a statement grassley says, "we look forward to reiterating to him directly that the american people will be heard and the next supreme court justice will be determined once the elections are complete." senator grassley wants to delay the hearing until a new president is sworn in. delays are nothing new for congress... and cedar rapids is a victim because of it. "we were i guess as a lot of people would say ground zero, the river is right across the street, we had 8 feet of water in here, closed us

the devastation caused by the flood of 20-08 amounted to 6-billion dollars in cedar rapids alone... once the water went down.. the federal government promised to act... agreeing to pay for 65-million of the 100-million dollars cost of improving the city's levee system. "it's like telling my son your approved to go to college and he said great dad, how much money are you going to give me so i can go to college? and i say none, but you're approved to go, so that's the situation we are in." eight years after the floods... the feds are yet to come through with a dime in funding... that's forced the city to scrap levee improvement plans on both sides of the river. instead the city is starting with lowest areas of the levee... building them up as their own funding allows. "it's very frusterating to this neighborhood and to my buisness to know that it might be 20 years before we have protection." he might be right. improved levees in des moines were completed in 20-12... nearly 20-years after the floods of 19-93. the cost of college could go up

about to get a facelift. at one time, he was one of the most important people in the state... but the memory of governor samuel merrill has started to fade... sometimes, even an icon needs a helping hand... channel 13's andy fales has the story. faint as it is, our memory of samuel merrill is of a man who never left well enough alone. in 1856, he left a successful business and political career in new england and opened shop in iowa. 104318 '...he was a mercantilist, a tri- goods store...' he did well, but when war broke out
10:13 pm
recruited a number of the troops himself...' 104236 'he funded the uniforms for the first, second and third volunteer regiments.' but even that wasnt enough. merrill soon joined the iowa volunteer infantry and became an officer. 104348 'leading the charge at the battle of black river bridge, he was shot through both legs. critically wounded on the field, removed from the field, that ended his time as a soldier.' but he was hardly finished with iowa. he was elected governor in 1868, running on his leadership skills honed in battle. 104455 'youre leading men through bayonet charges, you have to assert yourself in that manner.' 130806 'there is nothing that is going to cast a person than that particular experience. i think thats exactly the reason why iowans chose civil war soldiers and people with civil war experience to lead the state after that.'honors for merrill starting coming before his term even expired...he laid the
10:14 pm
then new state capitol in 1871...a small town in northwest iowa took his name the following year...and a des moines middle school...no wait, thats actually a different merrill, but you get the point. by the time he was laid to rest here in 1899, his legacy was assured, etched in a marble monument for a hundred years. 105012 'when the oak tree fell, it fell and it hit it moving all this out, breaking away a certain amount of the foundation.' when the damage was done, samuel merrill had no known relatives left. so there was no one to authorize or fund repairs to his grave. marble monument for a hundred years. 105012 'when the oak tree fell, it fell and it hit it moving all this out, breaking away a certain amount of the foundation.' when the damage was done, samuel merrill had no known relatives left. so there was no one to authorize or fund repairs to his grave. 105243 'i saw an opportunity, here.' local history buff, jonas cutler, took up the charge and began a seeking private donations to help renovate the grave. he knew just where to start... 124440 '...being a student of history, i chose some of the more

adorn this office.' terry branstad shared $1,000 of his own money with the cause, after all, he and merrill share the same office...and same ideals...if not the same look... 124545 ' no, hes got more facial hair than many, and the early governors—y ou look at these portraits-- a lot of them had beards.the renovation effort is now just $6500 short of completion and the hope is that sometime this year, the honor that this iowa icon deserves will be restored to him. 131710 'when it was all said and done, governor merrill chose iowa...it makes it real.' he was a man who, to our benefit, never left well enough alone. he came here, helped out, because it felt right. returning that favor would seem
10:16 pm
tonight we were informed by governor branstad's office that the governor has advised the iowa history fund committee to cover for restoration of samuel merrill's gravesite. the history fund gets its money in part from the sale of governor brandstad's autobiography. the committee is expected to approve construction could begin by this summer. if you're tired of the colder and dreary weather, you're in luck! clouds will continue to clear out through the night tonight, paving the way for more sunshine on friday. temperatures will be cool but average tonight with lows in the middle 20s. winds will also die down and become more southwesterly for friday. this combined with the sunshine will help warm
