One of those patients is Drake, a 12- yearold yellow Labrador retriever, who had a cancerous tumor removed from his back right leg. The surgery caused nerve damage that resulted in a partial loss of control in his leg and tension in his shoulders from increased weight on his front paws. To alleviate the tension, repair the nerve damage and Another option for your pets Liz Zabel/ The Gazette Drake rests on a blanket at Edgewood Animal Hospital in Cedar Rapids. Acupuncture is meant to help repair some of the nerve damage. How does pet acupuncture work? Go online at www. thegazette. com to watch a veterinarian treat a dog with acupuncture. HELP FOR PETS ANIMAL CARE Adam Wesley/ The Gazette Donald Trump speaks Jan. 24 at the Iowa Freedom Summit at Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines. By Lyle Muller, IowaWatch. org EVANSDALE — The theories have been plenty. Most lead to nothing. Yet, investigators keep listening because they hope that hidden in the often- irrelevant information is a nugget that, crazy as it may seem at first blush, will help them catch whoever killed Lyric Cook- Morrissey and Elizabeth Collins. “ I don’t want people to go, ‘ Oh, they’ll think I’m crazy,’ and not call in,’” Evansdale Police Chief Jeff Jensen said. Cook- Morrissey, 10, and Collins, 8, were abducted near Meyers Lake in Evansdale on July 13, 2012. The cousins’ bodies were found five months later, on Dec. 5, 2012, in a wooded area 24 miles to the north in rural Bremer County at Seven Bridges Wildlife Area. “ It frustrates me, it frustrates my department and anybody that’s working on it,” Jensen said of the 3- year- old case with no resolution. “ I mean, we’d really like to have some answers.” Investigators are keeping close to the vest anything they learn that helps them in the case. Heather and Drew Collins, Elizabeth Collins’ parents, are fine with that. “ That guy’s going to be the only one to know how they murdered my daughter and niece,” Heather Collins said. “ So we asked ( investigators) not to put out how ( the girls) were killed.” It’s a lesson learned from another high- profile abduction and murder of a young girl in 2005 — Evelyn Miller, 5. The big break in that case came when the convicted killer, Casey Frederiksen, told fellow prisoners in jail while serving time for child pornography details about the death that had not been made public. Coping with the loss is a day- by- day experience, Heather Collins said. “ My husband and I wake up and we just pray every day ‘ We’d really like to have some answers’ Elizabeth Collins Lyric Cook- Morrissey PUBLIC SAFETY The case of 2 cousins who were abducted in Evansdale in 2012 continues to frustrate investigators Anyone with information on the murders of Lyric Cook- Morrissey and Elizabeth Collins is urged to call 855- 300- TIPS ( 8477) or 319- 232- 6822. WHERE TO CALL POLITICS Donald Trump has been a wrecking ball during roughly six weeks as an official candidate for president. The billionaire businessman’s announcement speech — given at a New York City hotel that bears his name — was a 45- minute manifesto in which he called America’s leaders “ stupid” and said most immigrants illegally crossing the U. S.- Mexico border are drug traffickers, criminals and rapists. He constantly brags about his immense wealth. At the Family Leadership Summit in Ames on July 18, he said U. S. Sen. and Vietnam prisoner of war John McCain is considered a war hero only “ because he was captured.” VOTER FRUSTRATION Trump’s unfiltered delivery has endeared him to supporters. He has tapped into the frustrations of people who are disenchanted with the federal government and embrace someone who is not a typical politician. How will Trump do in Iowa? Chairman: Campaigns are a ‘ contact sport’ By Erin Murphy, Gazette- Lee Des Moines Bureau DES MOINES — He slings insults left and right. He derides anyone who dares challenge him. He speaks his mind with total disregard for political correctness or sensitivity. And he leads a huge field of Republican presidential candidates in national polls. ; TRUMP, PAGE 11A ; COUSINS, PAGE 11A ; PETS, PAGE 11A IOWA TODAY Ramping up for treasure hunters Rummage in the Ramp, an Iowa City event aimed at keeping usable items out of landfills, adds options to increase its audience, Page 2A TOP STORIES Raising disabilities awareness For the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, a Cedar Rapids mom tweeted her story on Hillary Clinton’s Twitter account, Page 3A NATION/ WORLD Developers think small Micro- apartments of under 600 square feet are a big deal in downtowns of some Midwest cities, Page 5A COMMUNITY Program distributes produce Share the Harvest collects produce from local gardens and distributes it to people without means or access to fresh produce, Page 7A SPORTS Cougars don’t want to repeat history Top- seeded Cascade is looking for its first win in four appearances at the state baseball tournament, Page 1B THE BACK PAGE Fun at the fair Scenes from the Great Jones County Fair in Monticello, Page 10B Barta’s unwavering support for Ferentz Sports, 1B
