Sheriffs Departments in Iowa but comes word of a vehicle

versus pig accident in Grundy County.

It happened Sunday in a rural part of the county,

23 year old Jessica Osterhaus was in a 2005 Toyota

about five o'clock in the afternoon and struck a

pig that entered the roadway from a ditch.

She was not hurt and the vehicle sustained about

two thousand dollars in estimated damage.

An early morning fire at the Des Moines Renaissance Faire grounds has left at least two structures with nothing but charred framework remaining. Police say they responded around 1:15 a.m. Monday to reports of a fire in an area of Sleepy Hollow Sports Park where the festival is held. Fire officials called in portable water tanks to contain the flames that scorched the food vendor and maintenance buildings because no hydrants are located on the fairgrounds. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

A public record shows that Iowa's new prison for male offenders wasn't expected to be fully operational until fall 2015 even before workers discovered the latest delay-causing problem.

An extension signed by the Department of Corrections with a contractor in June 2014 said that occupancy of the Iowa State Penitentiary in Fort Madison would be "completed in the fall of 2015."

The next month, testing found that smoke evacuation systems in the inmate housing units were flawed. Workers are trying to bring the buildings up to the fire code.

Corrections' deputy director Brad Hier said the fall 2015 date was a conservative ballpark estimate and no longer has relevance. He says the department hopes to open the prison as soon as it's safe, which could still be sometime this year.

Questions are being raised about some purchases by Iowa law enforcement agencies using money seized under state and federal civil forfeiture laws passed to help fight the scourge of illicit drugs.

The money is supposed to be spent on enhancing law enforcement and crime fighting capabilities, not on items that normally would be covered by departmental budgets.

Among the purchases reported by the Register: scented candles, mulch and tropical fish; sewer and water bills; a $27,000 sport utility vehicle for a county prosecutor; respirators for firefighters.

Former Cass County Attorney Daniel Feistner says his office used forfeiture money to buy the scented candles in 2013. He says the candles helped mask unpleasant body odors from some people visiting the office.
