|LISTEN: Consultant discusses The Denny siding reportKELO / 7 h. 52 min. ago more|
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO.com) -- Twenty-five thousand dollars and an hour and a fifteen minutes later, the City Council heard the siding expert say the warped panels on The Denny are not causing major structural problems. Peter Babaian from Chicago firm Simpson, Gumpertz and Heger presented the results along with Mark Cotter, Sioux Falls public works director, at the 4 p.m. City Council Informational Meeting. "We don't expect it to get any worse than what it's already seen," Babaian said. "But we do want to make sure over time, which is the reason for the ten year re-inspection, that it does not actually compromise the metal." Though the problems are aesthetic, Babaian said there were problems with how the panels were installed. "Were the panels installed to the specifications all the parties agreed to?" asked Council Greg Neitzert. "They were not installed to allow for the thermal expansion," Babaian answered. Though City Councilors appeared satisfied about the answers they received from the Chicago consultant, Councilor Theresa Stehly was still concerned. "To me, the issue is where have we been, where are we at, and where are we going," Stehly said. "The reason this is happening is because of secrecy and confidentiality." Stehly also suggested the Council hire its own lawyer to get access to the draft of the earlier Judd Allen report on the panels. You can hear the full hearing by clicking the audio file above.

|Abdallah bows out for health not harassmentKELO / 14 h. 17 min. ago more|
PIERRE, S.D. (KELO.com) -- A former state lawmaker, accused of sexual misconduct, has withdrawn from a possible seat on the South Dakota Parole Board. In his withdrawal letter to Attorney General Mark Jackley, Gene Abdallah of Sioux Falls says continuing health issues prevent him from taking the position. "It was my hope over these past few weeks that these health issues would improve but, unfortunately, they have worsened, and I am now using an oxygen machine for daily breathing assistance" Abadallah writes. But Abdallah also denies any wrongdoing. "My friends have encouraged me to fight back against these nasty attacks. If I were younger and in good health, nothing could keep me from the challenge." A former ACLU lobbyist accused Abdallah of sexual harassment during the 2012 state legislative session. In place of Abdallah, Jackley is now recommending former Minnehaha County Commissioner Anne Hajek for the seat on the Board of Pardons and Parole.

|NFL writer Peter King lingers in MinneapolisKELO / 18 h. 50 min. ago more|
MINNEAPOLIS - (KELO.com) - The Minnesota Vikings' last-second victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday was no doubt a heart stopper. The playoffs bring in NFL writers from around the globe, and arguably the writer with the most recognized byline is Peter King. Perhaps the effects of the last second played now coined, 'The Minneapolis Miracle' has stayed with King. He stuck around Minneapolis for an extra day, still talking about the amazing finish for the Vikings, sending Minnesota to the NFC Championship game this Sunday in Philadelphia. "I've never seen a game, with so much at stake, end in such a dramatic way," King said. "When I first saw it, I thought, 'that can't have just happened." King said that after thinking about it Sunday night after the game, he's absolutely sure this is the biggest moment in Vikings history. Minnesota has been to four SuperBowls, but have lost by double-digits in all four games. "This franchise has had more than its share of moments that were absolutely heartbreaking," he said. "This has to be, in my mind, the biggest moment for this franchise." King says the Vikings' NFC Championship game at Philadelphia is a winnable one, and that sets up something special. The winner of the game heads to SuperBowl 52, which is being held in Minneapolis. No host team has ever made it to the SuperBowl. "To host the SuperBowl on your home field for the first time in the 52-game history of the SuperBowl would be just an amazing experience," he said.

|Study: ZIP Code big factor in heart healthKELO / 4 d. 11 h. 5 min. ago more|
SIOUX FALLS, S. D. (KELO.com) -- New research has found where people live has a strong influence on the health of their hearts. The study, published in the journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, found higher rates of heart failure in more deprived neighborhoods. The study goes further. It found location had such a strong impact on heart health that it didn't matter what the person's socioeconomic status was. Mary Michaels, public health prevention coordinator with the Sioux Falls Health Department, says health behavior and choices are important, but communities play a major role in people's health. "In fact, your ZIP Code can oftentimes be a better predictor of your health than your genetic code," she says. "And that's because things that are in our environment influence the choices that we make every day." The majority of study participants were middle-aged and low-income; 70 percent made less than $15,000 a year. According to researchers, nearly 5 percent of increased heart failure risk could be attributed to a person's neighborhood, regardless of economic or clinical status.This research also indicates there are ways to make communities healthier for people. Michaels is part of Live Well Sioux Falls, a community coalition that partners with the Health Department. A few years ago, the group did a health needs assessment of neighborhoods in the city, locating what are known as food deserts - where healthy food options are far away - and places that are smoke- or tobacco-free. Live Well Sioux Falls also assessed walkability and pinpointed areas that need sidewalks, a crossing signal or something else to encourage exercise and moving around. Michaels says there's a lot community members can do to make their neighborhoods better. "Your mind might immediately go to, 'Well, that's the job of the hospitals,' or, 'That's the job of my local clinic or the health department,'" says Michaels. "But all the sectors of our community can make such a huge impact." Michaels notes there are economic benefits to having healthier communities, as well. Studies have shown walkable neighborhoods have higher home values and office rental prices, and more retail sales. Plus, employers save money on health-care costs if their workers are healthier.
