republican presidential debate brings more fireworks tonight. good evening. i'm stephanie angleson. jack/2shot and i'm jack miller. and i'm jack miller. senator ted cruz there going after the moderators and the mainstream media for trying to pit candidates against each other instead of just asking substantive questions. we'll be joined by isu political science professor dr. steffan schmidt later in the news for debate analysis. but first... get ready to pay ten percent more on your water bill beginning on april first. jack: local 5's jacob pek-lo has more in tonight's big story. jacob: jack, it's a hot topic for sure. des moines water works has said these changes aren't because of high nitrate levels, but are just a part of normal increases. still, it depends where you look to see how big ten percent really is. larissa christ, west des moines resident: "i live by myself and i pay all my bills with one income. so, cheaper is great." natural sound of dish clanking larissa christ is adjusting to life in her first apartment. larissa christ, west des moines resident: "the more that i can
put into savings the better. most of the time, i kind of spend it shopping, or online shopping, but i try to save where i can." many landlords have their tenants pay water or electric bills, in addition to their monthly rent. now, after des moines water works passed a 10 percent rate increase, many families will have to adjust to that cost trickling down to them. board members say it's because people are using less water than before. keith denner, president of professional property management: "it happens fairly frequently because their cost of operation goes up and the cost of electricity goes up and they need to pass on their costs. we understand." at sun prairie apartments, management includes that cost in the monthly rent. because of several efficiency upgrades, the annual water bill for each apartment can be about $10 a month. so, a dollar increase won't be a big hurt to management or the tenants. natural sound of water kyle ledosquet, west des moines resident: "i have some buddies that live in other apartments as well, and they say on average a month, they can spend $60 a month on water alone. knowing that's an expense i can put somewhere else or put into savings, i enjoy that." and christ says knowing she won't have to stress about her water makes her rest a little easier. larissa christ, west des moines resident: "it's definitely a great deal, and i definitely
lease and staying here as long as i can and saving up." jacob: we reached out to des moines water works, but did not hear back. live in the studio, jacob peklo, local five news. we are iowa. stephanie: donald trump was fighting to regain his first place status tonight in the third republican debate. recent polls in iowa and nationwide have dr. ben carson in the lead. jack: trump defended himself against criticism from governor john kasich that he doesn't understand the hard work it takes to change things through government. "(kasich says: we're going to get a tithe or we're just going to be great is not a way to govern. we need to elect people who know how to get it done. trump: you know, kasich used to be so nice and said he wasn't going to attack anyone. but now he has no poll numbers, and that's why he's down on the end. and since then he's been nasty,

school and went thousands of dollars into debt. she learned about cutting hair, dying hair, doing manicures, pedicures, and facials, but nothing about african hair braiding. aicheria 1:07 that's when i was like this is not what i want to do. i'm not going to be doing these things, i'm gonna be braiding. since aicheria didn't get her cosmotology license... she can't run her own braiding business, meagan forbes 8:41 iowa's licensing laws are among the worst in the country. iowa licenses more workers from travel agents to atheltic trainers to makeup artists to hair braiders. meagan forbes is aicheria bell's attorney. they made an announcement inside the iowa state capitol that they're suing the iowa cosmotology board, fighting the current licensing laws. megain 4:01 a victory in this case will help all entrepeneurs in iowa. until that happens,
