            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Linn County, Cynthia S. Finley, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Ahlers and Buller, JJ.  Opinion by Buller, J.  (8 pages)

            A mother and father each appeal the termination of parental rights.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm the termination of both the mother’s and the father’s parental rights.  The pervasive methamphetamine abuse by both parents, as well as the other record evidence, supports the juvenile court’s termination order.
