PACKAGE 1 – CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL CONSTRUCTION

(ANCHOR LEAD)

CONSTRUCTION AT THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA HOSPITALS AND CLINICS BROKE GROUND EARLY THIS FALL. THE NEW CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL IS MOVING ALONG RIGHT ON SCHEDULE, DAILY IOWAN’S LIZ BLOOD HAS THE STORY.

ROLL TAPE

VO

CURRENTLY THE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL IS LOCATED THROUGHOUT SEVERAL PAVILIONS ON THE HOSPITAL’S CAMPUS – IN ORDER TO PROVIDE THE BEST PATIENT CARE THE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL WILL MOVE INTO ONE NEW BUILDING THAT CAN HANDLE TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES.

SOT

AS A MATTER OF FACT THE COMMON WEALTH FOUNDATION HAS RATED IOWA NUMBER ONE IN THE NATION FOR CARING FOR CHILDREN SO ESSENTIALLY WHAT WE WANT TO DO IS WITH THE NEW CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL IS PROVIDE AN IDEAL ENVIRONMENT FOR TAKING CARE OF CHILDREN.

VO

CHILDREN REQUIRE DIFFERENT HEALTH CARE THEN ADULTS NEED, PARENTS NEED TO BE INVOLVED AND THE HOSPITAL NEEDS TO PROVIDE PLACES DESIGNED TO BE KID-SIZED AND CHILD FRIENDLY. THE SPACES THAT ARE CURRENTLY OCCUPIED BY THE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL WILL BE CONVERTED INTO SPACE TO PROVIDE CARE FOR MORE ADULTS.

SOT

AS IOWA’S POPULATION CONTINUES TO AGE THE DEMAND FOR HEALTH CARE SERVICES WILL ONLY INCREASE SO THIS IS A CHANCE TO BUILD FOR THE FUTURE AND BE PREPARED TO TAKE CARE OF THOSE PATIENTS IN THE FUTURE

VO

THE PROJECT IS PROJECTED TO COST 271 MILLION DOLLARS AND THE MONEY USED TO FUND THE PROJECT WILL COME FROM THE HOSPITALS REVENUES. THE BUILDING WILL BE LOCATED BETWEEN PARKING RAMP 2 AND THE POMERANTZ FAMILY PAVILION. IT WILL BE 8 STORIES ABOVE GROUND AND 3 STORIES BELOW GROUND AND WILL CONNECT TO THE PAPPAJOHN PAVILION ON THE THIRD AND FOURTH FLOORS.

LOCATED BEHIND ME IS THE SITE FOR THE NEW CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL SET TO BE COMPLETE IN 2015. THIS IS LIZ BLOOD DAILY IOWAN TV.

PACKAGE 2 – WATERFOWL CONSERVATION

(ANCHOR LEAD)

THOUGH IOWA MAY BE MOST COMMONLY KNOWN FOR ITS DEER HUNTING, WE ARE ACTUALLY IN THE HEIGHT OF DUCK HUNTING SEASON. LIZ BLOOD TELLS US OF THE TRADITIONS AND STRUGGLES FACING THESE HUNTERS.

ROLL TAPE

VO

FOR MOST HUNTERS BEING UP AT 3 AM ON A COOL FALL DAY IS A TRADITION – ITS NOT JUST ABOUT THE HUNT ITS ABOUT SPENDING TIME WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

HUNTERS MAY TAKE FROM THE WATERFOWL RESOURCE BUT ITS IMPORTANT TO MOST THAT THEY FIND WAYS TO GIVE BACK IN ORDER TO PRESEVRE THIS TRADITION FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS. BUILDING HABITAT IS ONE WAY HUNTERS CAN HELP OUT, THEY CAN ALSO SUPPORT LOCAL CONSERVATION GROUPS LIKE DUCKS UNLIMITED.

SOT (CODY)

“WERE PART OF DU WHICH HELPS CONSERVATION AND HELPS BUILD WETLANDS AND WE DO OUR PART THAT WAY.”

VO

THESE ARE JUST A FEW WAYS HUNTERS CAN GET INVOLVED BUT THE STATE DOES ITS PART TOO.

SOT (RON)

“WE ARE PERTNERING WITH A LOT OF LOCAL CONSERVATION GROUPS WHETHER IT BE DU, NATURAL HERITAGE FOUNDATION, THAT TYPE OF THING. JUST TO PURCHASE MORE PROPERTY OR TO REDEVELOP PROPERTY THAT WE ALREADY HAVE.”

VO

THE DNR DOES HAVE LIMITED RESOURCES. THE FUNDING FOR PROJECTS LIKE THIS COME FROM THE FEES HUNTERS PAY FOR LICENSES AND FINES. THE OVERALL NUMBER OF HUNTERS AND THE OVERALL NUMBER OF FINES ISSUED ARE DECREASING ANNUALLY, CAUSING FUNDS TO DEPLETE AS WELL.

SOT (CODY)

“LICENSING FEES RIGHT NOW ARE, I THINK THEY’RE REASONABLE, IF THEY GO UP I MEAN ITS NOT GOING TO STOP ME FROM BUYING THEM.”

VO

EVEN THOUGH ALL OF THESE ISSUES ARE FACING HUNTERS IT DOESN’T STOP THE SEASONS FROM COMING AND THEIR TRADITIONS FROM CARRYIG ON.

STAND UP

BOAT RAMPS LIKE THIS ONE LOCATED ON THE IOWA RIVER ARE TYPICALLY FILLED BY 3 AM WITH BOATS AND TRAILERS LIKE THE ONES BEHIND ME. HUNTERS THAT ARE COMMITTED TO THE THRILL OF THE HUNT. THIS IS LIZ BLOOD DAILY IOWA TV.

PACKAGE 3 – AIMING FOR A CURE

(ANCHOR LEAD)

ONE LOCAL FAMILY HAS TURNED WHAT MOST WOULD CONSIDER A TRAGIC STORY INTO SOMETHING VERY POSITIVE. STEVE AND JODIE RIES CO-FOUNDED THE AIMING FOR A CURE FOUNDATION WITH THE HELP OF THEIR SON BEN, WHO DIED IN 2005 OF CANCER. DAILY IOWAN’S LIZ BLOOD VISITED WITH THE FAMILY AND FOUND THAT THE FOUNDATION RECENTLY HIT THEIR MILLION DOLLAR MARK.

ROLL TAPE

VO

BEN REIS WAS A 7-YEAR-OLD LITTLE BOY WHEN THE DOCTOR’S FOUND A SOLID CANCEROUS TUMOR ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD IN APRIL 2000.

SOT

BEN WAS, HE WAS A FIGHTER, HE SAID YOU KNOW LETS DO WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO GET THIS CANCER TAKEN CARE OF.

VO

THE FAMILY SPENT FIVE AND A HALF YEARS EXPERIENCING LIFE IN THE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL FOR THEMSELVES AND THEY KNEW THEY WANTED TO FIND A WAY TO GIVE BACK. SO IN 2003 THEY CO-FOUNDED THE AIMING FOR A CURE FOUNDATION.

SOT

HE WAS ALWAYS WORRIED ABOUT THE OTHER KIDS YOU KNOW WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP THEM AND MAKE THEM FEEL GOOD.

VO

BEN WOULD HAVE GRADUATED LAST MAY AND HIS GRADUATING CLASS FROM ALBURNETT HIGH SCHOOL SPENT THE YEAR FUNDRAISING FOR AIMING FOR A CURE AND THE CLASS RAISED OVER 35,000 DOLLARS THAT THEY WERE ABLE TO PRESENT TO STEVE AND JODIE AT GRADUATION.

SOT

FOR US PERSONALLY THAT WAS  JUST VERY EMOTIONAL.

STAND UP

AIMING FOR A CURE IS A NON PROFIT CHARITY THAT IS RUN ONE HUNDRED PERCENT BY VOLUNTEERS, EVERY PENNY THAT IS RAISED BY AIMING FOR A CURE GOES DIRECTLY BACK TO THE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL HERE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA’S HOSPITALS AND CLINICS.

VO

THEY HAVE THE ABILITY TO CHOOSE WHERE ALL THE MONEY IS GIVEN. A PORTION GOES TO CANCER RESEARCH, GIFT CARDS FOR THE FAMILIES, MAYBE EVEN BRINGING A FAMILY MEMBER HOME TO SEE THE PATIENT. WHATEVER IT IS THAT THE FAMILY NEEDS.

SOT

WE KNOW THAT EVERY DOLLAR IS GOING TO GO TO FAMILIES, AND THATS WHAT ITS ABOUT.

VO

THERE ARE MANY WAYS SOMEONE CAN GET INVOLVED. THE FOUNDATION HOLDS A CELEBRITY HUNT ONE WEEKEND EVERY SPRING THAT INCLUDES A HUNT, TRAP SHOOT, BANQUET AND A SILENT AUCTION, THERE IS ALSO A FUN/RUN WALK IN AUGUST AND A 5,OOO DOLLAR SHOPPING SPREE IN NOVEMBER.  FOR MORE INFORMATION YOU CAN VISIT THEIR WEBSITE AT WWW.AIMINGFORACURE.COM. THIS IS LIZ BLOOD, DAILY IOWAN TV.
