            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Rachael E. Seymour, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Greer, P.J., Schumacher, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Mahan, S.J.  (7 pages)

            A father appeals the termination of his parental rights to two of his children.  He challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting the statutory grounds for termination, contends termination is not in the children’s best interests, and claims the juvenile court was “unable to render a fair judgment due to the court’s bias and prejudice.”  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the decision of the juvenile court to terminate the father’s parental rights.
