DETROIT (AP) - A major winter storm that blanketed much of the Midwest with snow earlier in the weekend is barreling toward New England, where it is expected to wreak transportation havoc from slick and clogged roads to hundreds of cancelled airline flights. The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings or advisories for part or all of at least 15 states stretching from southeast Missouri to the northern tip of Maine.
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Snow has mostly moved out of Iowa, leaving residents to deal with high winds and bitter cold. The National Weather Service shows most of Iowa received 1 to 6 inches (2.54 centimeters to 15.24 centimeters) of snow from the time the storm moved in Friday overnight to Saturday morning. The northeastern corner of the state saw higher amounts, with an area near the town of Cresco close to the Minnesota border getting 13 inches (33.02 centimeters).
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Court of Appeals has elected Judge Gayle Nelson Vogel, of Spirit Lake, as the court's chief judge. Vogel has served on the court since 1996 and is the ninth chief judge since the state legislature established the Iowa Court of Appeals in 1976. She replaces Chief Judge David Danilson, who recently retired.
COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Marcus Frejo, a member of the Pawnee and Seminole tribes who is also known as Chief Quese Imc, said he had been a part of the march and was among a small group of people remaining after the rally when the students began chanting slogans such as "Make America great" and then began doing the haka, a traditional Maori dance. Although he feared a mob mentality that could turn ugly, Frejo said he was at peace singing among the scorn and he briefly felt something special happen as they sang the tune.
