Group Calls for New State Juvenile Facility

DES MOINES (AP) --
   An association of juvenile court officers wants Iowa to create a new state facility for delinquent girls to replace the Iowa Juvenile Home, which is being closed.
   The court officers say girls who once would have been housed at the Toledo home now risk being sent out of state or to temporary shelters that offer little or no treatment.
   The Des Moines Register says the Iowa Juvenile Court Services Association said in a letter this week to state legislators that there still is a need for a state-run facility for delinquent girls.
   Gov. Terry Branstad announced last month that state officials will close the Toledo home by Jan. 16, relocate the children and lay off the staff of 93 employees.
