The long, grueling presidential election is moving into the next phase. The Iowa caucus is just days away and most polls have Donald Trump winning by a healthy margin, with Ted Cruz in hot pursuit and Jeb Bush at the back of the field. Donald Trump, by the way, wasn’t even in the latest debate, but there’s still a long way to go in the campaign. What does Iowa mean for Jeb, or Marco Rubio for that matter?

And Orange County residents have brand new trash bins, but many of them aren’t happy. County officials have been flooded with complaint calls.
