            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Jeffrey D. Farrell, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Schumacher, P.J., Ahlers, J., and Vogel, S.J.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (9 pages)

            An employer, ABF Freight Systems, Inc., and its insurer, Ace American Insurance Company, appeal a judicial-review decision upholding the workers’ compensation commissioner’s award of additional benefits to Marcus Hilliard.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the commissioner’s finding of a change of condition is supported by substantial evidence and the determination of increased industrial disability is not irrational, illogical, or wholly unjustifiable, we affirm.
