Firefighters from several area departments Monday night battled the bitter cold along with a fire that gutted a Moline restaurant.

Firefighters were called to the Captain\u2019s Table Restaurant, 4801 River Drive, Moline, at 10:44 p.m.

Upon arrival the fire department found the restaurant fully-engulfed and were forced to use defensive tactics to bring the fire under control. Because of the hard-to-get to areas of the building, outside obstacles, and the shape of the interior, crews still are on scene this morning hitting hot spots.

The building is a total loss and because of its instability, an excavator is being called to bring down unstable walls and allow firefighters better access to hidden pockets of fire.

River Drive will remain closed until late this afternoon.

River Drive traffic is being rerouted at 41st and 55th streets. Only residents living in the affected area 4100 block River Drive to 5400 block River Drive will be allowed in the area. The fire department requests all residential traffic enter at the 41st Street side.

The cause of the fire is undetermined at this time.

Property and contents losses have yet to be determined.

There were no reports of any injuries at this time.

Moline Fire Department was assisted by Moline Police Department, East Moline Fire Department, Rock Island Arsenal Fire Department, Moline Second Alarmers, Mid-American Energy and Metro Link bus service who provided a warm place to rehab.

\u2022 Photos from the Captain's Table fire.

According to the restaurant's Facebook page, the Captain's Table had been closed for remodeling.

Speakers on Monday afternoon encouraged guests at the Hoopn 4 Change celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day to remember King\u2019s teachings and act selflessly in a legacy to King.

About 70 people, including many young people, attended the event at Beyond the Baseline, Davenport. Before the program began, a time for open recreation and fellowship was held.

Demetrius Williams, master of ceremonies, greeted those gathered on the bleachers and introduced each speaker.

\u201cDr. King\u2019s teachings demonstrated love in action,\u201d he said. Hate cannot drive back hate, he said. \u201cOnly love can do that.\u201d

\u201cWe have to stop picking up guns to solve our problems,\u201d he said. \u201cThe world will change if you change you. Ask yourself \u2018Am I better than I was yesterday?\u2019\u201d

\u201cMake this a moment of sincere connection,\u201d said the Rev. Frank Livingston, of Mount Sinai Christian Fellowship \u2013 Church of God in Christ, co-founder of Hoopn 4 Change.

King, he said, had the passion of Christ \u201cto bring unity where there was division.\u201d He led a prayer, and asked each person to turn to the person next to them and say \u201cYou are an agent of change.\u201d

King \u201cwanted equity for everyone,\u201d said Andre James, retired E8 master sergeant, U.S. Army, co-founder of Hoopn 4 Change.

\u201cOne of the things I take to heart from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is that he fought for everybody,\u201d James said. \u201cI\u2019m going to get out of \u2018me\u2019 because I care more about \u2018we.\u2019\u201d

He encouraged listeners to love each other. \u201cPut your faith in God and let him guide you,\u201d James said.

\u201cWithout a Martin Luther King, President Obama wouldn\u2019t have gotten a chance to vote, let alone be president,\u201d said Elliott Lard. He outlined several of King\u2019s principles.

\u201cWe\u2019re closing down schools and we\u2019re building jails up,\u201d said Lonnie Ray Westerfield. \u201cYou kids\u00a0\u2014 your job is to get educated. Your job is to stay in school.\"

\u201cThe dream doesn\u2019t die, but the dreamer does,\u201d Livingston said in closing. \u201cIf there\u2019s nobody there to pick up the dream, it dies.\u201d

Other speakers included Charles Lard and Teri Graves.

Sometimes tart, sometimes sweet, but always refreshing.

Such were the melodies of The Cranberries, whose alternative/folk/pop songs drew a crowd of 4,500 Wednesday to The Mark of the Quad-Cities in Moline.

The 20-something Irish four-some - Dolores O'Riordan on vocals and guitar; Noel Hogan on guitar; Mike Hogan on bass and Fergal Lawler on drums - performed for a little more than an hour.

Before they went on, Cracker, a pop/rock group that was a perfect warm-up, did a terrific performance that made me want to hear more. But pandemonium erupted when The Cranberries rolled on to the stage.

Many of the tunes were from the band's latest \"To the Faithful Departed\" CD, their third release, including \"Salvation,\" \"I Just Shot John Lennon\" and \"When You're Gone.\"

This was an appreciative young crowd, many in their 20s, the same age as the performers, and others of so tender years that they waited afterward for parents to pick them up.

All ages seemed equally appreciative, clapping and swaying to the tunes and especially in enthusiastic response to Dolores, who is part of the reason that the show was so visually rich.

More than likely she's tried of appellations such as \"gamine\" and \"pixie,\" but she is a short-cropped wisp who belts a voice bigger than she is and plays a guitar that's nearly so. She first took the stage wearing a sarong that later was removed - along with her clunky, funky footwear - to reveal a two-piece black leotard. That, along with a knee brace on one leg, lent atmosphere to \"Zombie,\" to which she writhed and danced, swaying her head and arms from side to side and barely touching the floor in her light-stepping bare feet.

The other part of the visual feast was the effective but not overblown light show that included, at various moments, a flashing strobe light; luminous peace signs and revolving crosses; and, more often than not, a lit auditorium full of listeners singing with Dolores while they whirled their fingers in the air.

All the way through, the audience greeted her with shouts of \"Dolores!\" and several waved Irish flags while she sang the likes of the folksy \"Will You Remember,\" which is reminiscent of an Irish air; the popish, rocking \"Free to Decide;\" and the '50s doo-woppy \"When You're Gone.\"

She performed vocal calisthenics to transform her voice from a croon to a yip, then a bark and a cry. Often, she asked the crowd to sing with her. And that they gladly did, clapping in time to the lyrics they knew so well, especially in \"Dreams\" and \"Linger,\" which is just what everyone wished The Cranberries could do.\u00a0

The remaining member of the \u201cThree Esthers,\u201d and the last-known Holocaust survivor in the Quad-Cities, passed away Thursday.

Esther Schiff, 93, will be remembered for her verve and dedication to the community.

\u201cWhen you think of all that she went through\u00a0\u2014 to walk away with a gentle and sensitive soul\u00a0\u2014 what a testament to the power of humanity,\u201d said retired Rabbi Henry Karp, of Davenport.

She was the last direct link to the reality of that time in history, he said. \u201cWith the passing of Esther Schiff, the Holocaust slips into history.\u201d

She and other survivors \u201chumanized the Holocaust for us,\u201d he said. \u201cIt happened to them and they\u2019re standing right here in front of us.\u201d

\u201cWhen we don\u2019t have that, we can desensitize ourselves. As long as Esther Schiff was alive, it wasn\u2019t just a story. It\u2019s the end of an era.\u201d

Schiff was born on March 2, 1924, in Kalisz, Poland. As a teenager, she escaped the Nazi concentration camps by hiding as a non-Jew in Poland and Germany until the Germans surrendered in May 1945.

When she was 14, her family members were rounded up and died at the hands of the Nazis.

\u201cI wasn\u2019t home when the Germans came. The first thing they did was take the Jews out. They came with machine guns and took them away,\u201d Schiff told the Quad-City Times in 2008. \u201cThere was no one in my family that survived. No one.\u201d

She adopted a Catholic identity of Edwarda Opatowska, and joined a group of Polish girls on their way west to Germany to work as farm laborers. She had only three hours off on Sundays for relaxation.

When the day of liberation arrived. \u201cI remember seeing the American soldiers coming down the highway and I was crying. I was free,\u201d she said.

\u201cI will never forget the twinkle in her eye when she talked about after the liberation,\u201d said Kai Swanson, a member of the Quad-Cities Holocaust Remembrance Committee. \u201cOh, those American soldiers!\u201d Schiff told him. \u201cShe thought they were so handsome.\u201d

Eventually, Schiff became a mess-hall waitress in Freising, Germany, where she met one of those American soldiers, Saul Schiff. They were married Nov. 16, 1946, in Jersey City, New Jersey, and had two children. He died in 2012.

\u201cShe and her husband were always very active in the community here,\u201d Swanson said.

The couple moved to the Quad-Cities in 1974 because of her husband\u2019s engineering job at the Rock Island Arsenal.

Schiff was among the \u201cThree Esthers\u201d who, along with their husbands, moved to the Quad-Cities after World War II. Her story, along with the stories of the late Esther Avruch and the late Esther Katz, was published in books written by children as part of the \u201cA Book By Me: Holocaust \u2014 Never Again Book Series.\u201d

Swanson said he always has thought of the three Esthers in terms of the \u201cbiblically powerful\u201d name of a woman \u201cwho saved her people\u201d and lived through a time of terrible persecution.

\u201cThrough determination, smarts and a strong will to succeed, Esther overcame the horrors of the Holocaust and the murder of her family to forge a successful life for her and her family in America,\u201d said Allan Ross, executive director of the Jewish Federation of the Quad-Cities.

\u201cEsther was smart, witty and a joy to be around. We will miss her greatly.\u201d

Memorials in her name may be made to the Jewish Federation of the Quad-Cities in Rock Island, Hope Creek Care Center or a charity of choice.

MELBOURNE, Australia \u2014 With many of her fellow U.S. women\u2019s players falling by the wayside, Rock Island\u2019s Madison Keys has moved into the second round of the Australian Open.

Keys, the U.S. Open runner-up and a former semifinalist at Melbourne Park, claimed a 6-1, 7-5 win over China's Wang Qiang in the opening round.

She rallied from a 4-1 deficit in the second set by winning six of the next seven games to close out the match. She hit her fourth ace on match point.

The 17th-seeded American missed last year's Australian Open after undergoing surgery on her left wrist. After losing the U.S. Open final to fellow American Sloane Stephens in September, Keys played just one more match before ending her season to let her wrist fully heal.

Keys picked up the second win for the U.S. women on Tuesday, following Bernarda Pera's victory earlier in the day. The American women went 1 for 9 in first-round matches on Monday.

DES MOINES\u00a0\u2014 Iowans used Monday's Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebration to press for racial unity in the face of events, actions and words at the national level that continue to drive division.

Dozens of Iowans who braved cold temperatures to attend the 29th annual King celebration heard a mix of positive and challenging messages as the state struggles to deal with racial inequities in employment and incarceration rates and a negative image as a place that tolerates \"a quieter racism.\"

\"There are strong positives that we've seen,\" said Betty Andrews, president of the Iowa-Nebraska NAACP organization and a small business owner honored with an MLK achievement award.

\"I know that from the top, from the presidency down, we're seeing some really disheartening, concerning statements and things that are divisive. We want to make sure that we're pushing for unity,\" Andrews said in an interview.

\"Some of the comments that we're hearing let us know that we have a lot more work to do,\" she added. \"Right now we're standing on the shoulders of people like Dr. King and many others, but we also have to do that groundwork so that our children can stand on our shoulders on into generations.

\"This is not a progressive format, this is not a conservative format, this is about a humanitarian format,\" she later told the gathering. \"This is about stepping up and making America great. That's what this is about.\"

Gov. Kim Reynolds read a proclamation declaring a week to honor King's memory and dream of racial equality before telling the attendees that effort to \"unleash opportunities\" for Iowans will help allay fears and foster the equality and justice King yearned for. However, after the event, Reynolds told reporters that recent comments by President Donald Trump are \"not helpful\" in that process.

\"Not unlike the era in which Dr. King lived, our society is experiencing a period of dramatic change and with change often comes uncertainty, fear and frustration,\" the governor said in her remarks.

Clair Rudison, a member of the Iowa Department of Human Rights board of directors, praised the governor's efforts to improve Iowans' employment skills but said an incentive program is needed to aid and encourage businesses to help people who have \"tainted or criminal backgrounds\" lead productive lives.

Rudison recalled the fear in people's hearts when Dr. King was assassinated in 1968 and he wondered if King had lived and been 89 years old now if \"he might think that his work was in vain.\"

\"This nation is focused on fear. They want to scare the hell out of everybody. But Dr. King stood up in the face of fear and laid down his life for a cause,\" he said. \"We're still striving (for that cause), he added. \"Let us press forward toward that mark.\"

TAMA, Iowa \u2014 Add U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst\u2019s voice to those who believe President Donald Trump is reassessing his position on the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Although the president repeatedly has threatened to pull out of the 23-year-old trade agreement with Mexico and Canada, \u201cI think he has doubts,\u201d Ernst told members of the Iowa Corn Growers at its winter meeting Monday in Tama.

Ernst, who was among a group of GOP senators who met with the president to discuss NAFTA before Christmas, said Trump was under the impression they wanted him to pull out of the agreement with the countries that are the United States\u2019 and Iowa\u2019s largest trading partners.

However, when Trump polled everyone at the meeting, Ernst said only U.S. trade representative Robert Lighthizer supported withdrawing from NAFTA.

Not one of the farm state senators in the room advised him to end the deal that has been under renegotiation for months.

\u201cHe was surprised (because of) all these little birds chirping in his ear about how bad NAFTA is,\u201d she told the corn growers association.

Last week, Trump told the American Farm Bureau Federation meeting in Tennessee that he was \u201cworking very hard to get a better deal for our country and for our farmers and for our manufacturers.\u201d

Ernst, who expects to have a follow-up meeting with Trump to continue the discussion over NAFTA, said the goal is \u201cto make sure he understands how important this is not just for the ag economy, not just for the auto industry, but this is a good thing nationwide.\u201d

NAFTA negotiators from all three countries, meet for another session later this month.

Although negotiations are ongoing, Ernst said the sooner a new agreement is in place, the better it will be for agricultural producers.

\u201cThe worry that we have is that if we\u2019re not signaling a strong partnership with Canada and Mexico, they\u2019re going to have Plan B and Plan C lined up to fill any gaps that are created,\u201d she said.

Argentina and Brazil, for instance, would like to step in to sell commodities to Mexico, she said.

\u201cIf we lose this opportunity, I\u2019m afraid we won\u2019t be able to re-engage with Mexico,\u201d said Ernst, a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee. \u201cThat gap in corn will be filled by other nations. The same would be true with dairy, the auto industry. They\u2019ll find a way to work with other partners.\u201d

Ernst also updated the corn growers on Ag Committee work on the farm bill, which she hopes will be approved this year.

\u201cOne of the common themes I hear from producers is the need to be able to count on the stability that is provided by the farm bill programs, especially during a time when we see real challenges in farming and our rural communities,\u201d Ernst said.

She assured the corn producers that maintaining a \u201crobust\u201d crop insurance program is one of her top priorities.

\u201cI hear that all of the time when I\u2019m out and about,\u201d Ernst said.

Last May, Trump angered farm groups when he proposed cutting $46.54 billion in federal agricultural funding, mostly by capping the amount the government chips in toward crop insurance premiums.

He seemed to backtrack from that while addressing the Farm Bureau last week.

\u201cI\u2019m looking forward to working with Congress to pass the farm bill on time so that it delivers for all of you and I support a bill that includes crop insurance,\u201d Trump told the group.

Cold shooting left the St. Ambrose men's basketball team in no position for a comeback Monday in a 94-66 nonconference loss to Clarke at Lee Lohman Arena.

The Fighting Bees mustered just one field goal over the final seven minutes of the opening half as the Pride broke a 25-25 tie by ending the half on a 17-6 run.

A jumper by Lee Hardrick to open the second half pulled St. Ambrose within 42-33 but five straight points gave Clarke a double-digit advantage which the Bees, shooting just 37.1 percent for the game, couldn't dent.

Jake Meeske and Hardrick led St. Ambrose (9-10) with 14 and 13 points, respectively, while\u00a0 Jared Walker led a group of four Clarke players in double figures with a 17-point game.

Former Rock Island prep Breon Hawthorne came off the bench to score seven for the Pride (9-9).

Finding a pickup game on the recreation courts at the University of Iowa was never a problem last semester, but it wasn\u2019t the same.

Jalen Jones wanted more.

He wanted to be part of a team working toward goals beyond becoming a noon ball hero.

He wanted to feel the energy of a crowd again as he knocked down a big shot or grabbed a critical rebound.

Playing competitive basketball for the first time since his senior season at Clinton High School in 2014, Jones has found what he was looking for as the newest member of the men\u2019s basketball team at St. Ambrose University.

He joined the Fighting Bees over the holiday break and has led St. Ambrose in scoring in four of the five games he has played for the NAIA program.

\u201cIf it was going to happen, it was going to happen now or it was never going to happen,\u2019\u2019 the 22-year-old sophomore said. \u201cIt feels good to be part of a team again.\u2019\u2019

It\u2019s been quite a journey for Jones, who initially signed a letter of intent to play at Nebraska-Omaha.

He left the NCAA Division I program before ever beginning classes, returning home to Clinton.

\u201cThings just didn\u2019t feel right there. I was a long ways from home. It wasn\u2019t the right time or place for me,\u2019\u2019 Jones said. \u201cI know I could have played there, but it was timing as much as anything.\u2019\u2019

Jones enrolled at Kirkwood Community College, but did not play basketball there, and took classes over the past two years at Clinton Community College before enrolling at Iowa last fall.

It was there where he realized that he wanted something more.

\u201cI missed the competitiveness, the team atmosphere,\u2019\u2019 Jones said. \u201cThere was decent competition at the Field House and the rec center, but it wasn\u2019t the same. Halfway through the semester, I knew I wanted more. I wanted to get back at it and I wanted to find someplace to go play.\u2019\u2019

It took some time for Jones to embrace a return to the game.

\u201cI went back and forth with it a couple of times, but this is what I want to do,\u2019\u2019 Jones said. \u201cI missed the game. It\u2019s always been a big part of who I am and I\u2019m glad to be back on the court now.\u2019\u2019

Jones didn\u2019t lack opportunities before selecting St. Ambrose.

Fighting Bees coach Ray Shovlain attempted to recruit Jones in high school and reached out to him on several occasions after he returned home from Omaha in the summer of 2014.

\u201cI\u2019m glad he finally said \u2018Yes.\u2019 He\u2019s a good fit with our program. He\u2019s close to home and family, and I think he\u2019ll have a chance to work on his athletic skills here,\u2019\u2019 Shovlain said.

\u201cHe\u2019s a gifted player. He always has had unbelievable versatility, a player who can play almost anywhere on the floor. He\u2019s a good ballhandler, a good shooter and rebounder, and he is going to help us in a lot of ways.\u2019\u2019

Shovlain wasn\u2019t alone in attempting to bring Jones back to basketball.

Jones said coaches from Augustana and Clarke were interested in him as well over the past seasons and once he began looking for an opportunity last fall, Clarke and Grand View joined St. Ambrose in offering the versatile 6-foot-6 player an opportunity.

Family members and his coaches at Clinton encouraged Jones to return to the game and to continue working toward his degree.

\u201cSt. Ambrose is a good fit for me, close to home so my family and friends can come to the games, and academically it is giving me a good chance to complete my degree,\u2019\u2019 Jones said. \u201cIt\u2019s everything I was looking for and it\u2019s a good situation for me.\u2019\u2019

A mathematics major, Jones is a junior academically but is regarded as a sophomore from an eligibility standpoint.

That gives him two-plus seasons to continue to work and refine his game.

\u201cI can create some mismatches with my length and ballhandling and that is part of what my role is on this team, to help put us in a position to win games,\u2019\u2019 Jones said. \u201cUltimately, I would still like to play professionally once my college career is over and I feel like St. Ambrose can help me get there.\u2019\u2019

In his initial games with the Fighting Bees, Jones has found the competition to be good and appreciates the way his teammates have helped him adjust to his return to action.

Through five games, Jones has averaged 17.8 points and 5.8 rebounds per game while shooting 58.7 percent from the field. He has also dished out seven assists and recorded seven steals for St. Ambrose.

\u201cThe guys on the team here have been great, helping me get back into it and I can\u2019t say enough about how they\u2019ve helped me,\u2019\u2019 Jones said. \u201cThere\u2019s some good young players on this team and I\u2019m looking forward to working with them the next few years.\u2019\u2019

But first, Jones had to get back into game shape.

That started with a lot of running, all designed to help him get his \u201cbasketball lungs\u2019\u2019 back.

\u201cI\u2019m seeing areas where I need to get better, too, and that\u2019s good. That\u2019s what this is about,\u2019\u2019 Jones said. \u201cI've got to get used to getting back in defensive stances, work on my defensive angles and get more consistent shooting free throws. Mostly, I\u2019m just trying to get back in the flow.\u2019\u2019

He doesn\u2019t mind any of it one bit.

INDIANAPOLIS \u2014 The Mountain Division won the ECHL's all-star tournament Monday, beating the South Division 6-5 in a shootout Monday at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum.

The South's Taylor Cammarata, who plays for South Carolina, was named the MVP after scoring five goals and two assists in two games. Cammarata's five goals broke the league all-star record set by Andy MacIntyre in 1998.

The event featured a 3-on-3 tournament between four teams for the first time in league history.

The South beat the North 3-1 in the first game while the Mountain beat the Central 5-2 in the second game of the two semifinals. Quad-City Mallards defenseman Willie Raskob had two assists for the Central Division in the loss.

In the championship game, the two teams finished both periods tied 5-5. Cliff Watson beat Martin Ouellette for a goal in the shootout while Shane Starrett stopped Cammarata to give the Mountain Division the win.

In the skills competition, Cincinnati rookie Justin Danforth won the fastest skater with a league-record time of 12.75 seconds. Starrett, who plays for Wichita, won the shootout challenge by stopping nine of the 10 shots he faced and Orlando's Nolan Valleau won the hardest shot with a shot of 97 miles per hour.

Graves to Cleveland: Defenseman Jacob Graves was reassigned to the Cleveland Monsters from the Quad-City Mallards Monday. Graves has played 24 games with the Mallards this season, registering four assists with a minus-10 rating.

Chad Olsen and his Olsen Custom Farms harvesting team are no strangers to the John Deere combine.

For his Hendricks, Minnesota-based custom harvesting operation, these big green machines are the workhorses that enable crews to harvest 600,000 to 700,000 acres of crops each year for farm customers stretching from Texas to Watson, Sasketchewan, Canada.

Even with his 25 years in the business, Olsen had a quiet excitement about him as he climbed into the cab of a new John Deere combine last week as it moved along the manufacturing line at John Deere Harvester Works in East Moline.

It marked the first time the farmer/entrepreneur accepted the honors of starting his new combine as part of the plant's Gold Key Tour. \"Usually I let the employees do it,\" Olsen said. \"I can walk out of my shop anytime and start a combine.\"

But this particular visit to Harvester Works' Station 220 \u2014 the Gold Key Tour stop where a customer conducts the machine's first set of systems checks \u2014 held special significance. This was the 500th John Deere combine Olsen has purchased.

As he tested the machine's operating systems, Olsen had an entourage of 28 family members and Olsen Farms employees standing below to witness the momentous occasion. Taking the controls, Olsen checked some 30 different systems of the machine with a John Deere employee's guidance \u2014 watching for updates on a flat screen television monitor outside the machine.

The process checked everything from the engine to its hydraulics, the separator, lights, monitors, and even the horn. The whole checklist would get inspected again later down the line by members of Deere's quality team.

Olsen's crowd, who he brought overnight by charter bus from Minnesota, snapped photographs as he marked the occasion. Among his guests were two of his five children, son Charlie and daughter Ellie, longtime employees and a group of employees from South Africa, who join the harvesting crew each year.

The 500th machine is part of an order of 13 combines and eight pieces of front-end equipment that Harvester is building for Olsen. By year's end, Olsen said he will purchase 34 new combines from John Deere.

\"We don't grow our fleet until we have the jobs,\" Olsen said. With a total fleet of about 75 combines, he said the size of the fleet has been stabilizing over the past few years. \"We're playing it safer because we don't know what the farm economy is going to do. We're trying to stay efficient.\"

The bus trip, which included a luncheon at John Deere World Headquarters in Moline, provided a good distraction and break for the Olsen Farms team before its heavy lifting kicks off again in April.

Among the employees was Travis Schrick, who was on his second Harvester tour with his employer of 11 years. A semi-truck driver, Schrick said his job is to pick up and deliver the team's combines to its different harvesting jobs across the United States and Canada. \"We follow the harvest,\" he said, adding the combines begin shipping April 1. \"By mid-May or June 1, they are cutting.\"

Crews will start with the small grain first and wrap up with the large grains harvests, he said. Crops include wheat, canola, mustard, barley, milo, corn, beans, sunflowers and field peas, Schrick added.

Production excitement

Inside the manufacturing plant, Olsen and his team's presence could be felt from the time they entered the Visitor Center doors to the applause of more than a dozen John Deere team members to the reaction of dozens of employees on the factory floor. As the two dozen visitors toured the plant on trams, production employees greeted the group with cheers, \"thank yous,\" applause and an occasional thumbs up.\u00a0

On one of the very first stops, one worker walked to the tram and asked \"Which one of you guys is Chad?\" and proceeded to walk over and shake his hand.

\"You could feel the buildup of this all week long knowing this machine was coming,\" said Haley Franks, a Harvester Works production supervisor, or module leader. \"We have a lot of people do the Gold Tour experience here, but this is the first time I've been part of a 500th customer.\"

Deere officials were hesitant to confirm Olsen to be the first 500th combine customer. Given all the attention showered on the Olsen team, it was nonetheless an occasion of note.

\"It's just been a special experience,\" said Franks of Walnut, Illinois, a six-year Deere employee. \"When you think of how much money Olsen Farms has spent with us and invested in us, that says a lot about our product.\"

Jane Freeburg, an assembler for the past 10 years, said a 500-combine customer helps validates the work she and her co-workers do every day. \"What we try to do here is put out the best quality machine so the customers can do their best job at harvest.\"\u00a0

Her co-worker, Kari Bormann, an 11-year employee, added that every customer who comes in for a Gold Key Tour \"is a privilege to meet.\" \"Every machine we make is sold and has a name. But to see a face with it is uplifting and gratifying.\"\u00a0

Deere executive Doug Roberts, who is the director of Deere's global combine business, also was on hand at the plant for the milestone customer.

\"That is some kind of loyalty that allows a customer to buy 500 combines. You can see how excited our employees are,\"\u00a0 he said.

That level of purchasing also takes a sophisticated business operation like Olsen's, Roberts said. \"He runs 40 combines brand new every year and 40 from the year before for his rental business... \"

In addition to custom farming, Olsen has his own farm operation in Minnesota and rents out equipment to other farmers.

'Stayed green'

For Olsen, his dedication to Deere runs deep. In fact, he said other companies have offered to bring their machines for his crews to try. \"But we've stayed green.\"\u00a0

\"When we first started, we had no money, no financial backing and John Deere Financial took us on, so we've stuck with them,\" he said.\u00a0

Olsen did not set out to do custom combining, but was led down the path after a devastating fire on Dec. 19, 1990, destroyed the then young farmer's dairy barn. With his head of 48 cattle and their calves killed, and 3,500 bales of hay and other contents destroyed, Olsen faced his $100,000 investment gone up in smoke, and at 22 years old, had to start over.\u00a0

Olsen said the business, which now employs as many as 70 during peak harvest, began with him \"and a worn-out combine\" working for other neighboring farmers to make ends meet in 1993. Over the next decade, the operation grew to a fleet of 21 combines, 13 semis, four service trucks and four grain carts.

Today with a fleet of 75 to 80 combines, the team harvests\u00a0\u2014 and custom plants, too\u00a0\u2014 hundreds of thousands of acres across the United States and Canada. Beginning in spring, crews harvest small grains in the south and work north until October, or later, finishing up the Midwest's corn harvest.

\"We'll do any size farm from a 300-acre farm to a 30,000-acre farm,\" he said. \"My wife always reminds me we do small jobs as well as big jobs because it was the small guys that got us started. Every job makes a difference at the end of the year. They're all just as important. Size doesn't matter.\"

The \u201cInsidious\u201d franchise may be over. If that\u2019s true, it will haunt me for some time.

Before the lack of decent roles for women was on everyone\u2019s tongue, these movies had a strong female heroine\u00a0\u2014 and an older one, at that. Now \u201cInsidious: The Last Key\u201d lets us become even more well-acquainted with the psychic whose troubled past led her to a career in the paranormal.

The fourth installment begins in the childhood home of Elise (Lin Shaye). We see her as a child who can see things that other people can\u2019t. She knows, for example, that there is someone in the laundry room, even though her father \u201cpunishes\u201d\u00a0\u2014 this is a mild word\u00a0\u2014 her when she refuses to say she doesn\u2019t see and sense things.

We now know why Elise ran from her wretched childhood, and that she left a brother behind. When she receives a plea for help and hears her old address, she is troubled \u2026 and obviously afraid.

Her sidekicks Specs and Tucker (screenwriter Leigh Whannell and Angus Sampson, respectively) accompany her to the house, where much of the furniture and even the toys from her childhood remain intact.

The trio finds a horror even Elise never could imagine. And that\u2019s only the beginning of what Elise must confront when she truly begins to be haunted by her past.

Character development is what makes us care about whomever we watch in a film. This movie does an outstanding job of developing not only the character of the lead, but also the people around her. When we see the often-terrible moments from Elise\u2019s girlhood, we admire her strength even more.

As an adult, Shaye gives her character warmth, heart and grief\u00a0\u2014 she still mourns her childhood and feels guilty about leaving some of her family members behind.

The idea of a horror franchise driven by character development is fairly rare and engaging. We jump right along with Elise not only because the scares are well-crafted, which they are, but also because we care about her well-being.

I don\u2019t know whether the screenwriters will achieve this, but I hope that they continue to develop the series with as much heart, intelligence and yes, creepiness as they have thus far.

As for Shaye, she has become a phenomenon after a career that began in 1975 (if you want a chuckle, visit www.imdb.com and see the billing for her first role in “Hester Street.”) Even if this really is the last of the “Insidious” franchise, it’s just the beginning for Shaye: She will appear in at least 11 more movies.

Hurray for \u201cInsidious\u201d \u2026 and hurray for Shaye.

A pending state review of the special education program in the Davenport Community School District is rare in Iowa.

In the past three years, just one other school district\u00a0\u2014 Iowa City\u00a0\u2014 has been subjected to the special education audit. It will be done by a team of seven to 10 employees of the Iowa Department of Education, who plan to spend three days in the school district.

The audits are called \"combined\" because they involve both the special education program, and its finances, according to Staci Hupp, education department spokeswoman.

In all, Hupp said, the state has done combined audits a total of four times in the past three years.

Patti Pace-Tracy, director of special education for Davenport, will provide information on the audit to members of the Davenport School Board in a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The state's concerns, according to Pace-Tracy's memo:\u00a0

\u2022 Davenport's percentage of students with disabilities placed in restrictive settings is among the highest in the state.

\u2022 There are concerns with each student's IEP, or Individual Education Plan. These center on individualized and the pre-determination of services, especially for students with behavioral issues.

\u2022 More concerns are on how Davenport removes students from school, via suspensions and expulsions.

\u2022 Davenport has reported the largest increase in special education expenses from fiscal year 2016 to fiscal year 2017.

Wednesday's 5:30 p.m. committee-of-the-whole session is in the Jim Hester Board Room, on the third floor of the Achievement Service Center, 1606 Brady St., Davenport.

The state's visit is scheduled for Jan. 30 to Feb. 1.

The National Weather Service reports that Northwest winds from 20 to 30 mph will continue to cause areas of blowing and drifting snow this afternoon across eastern Iowa and northwest Illinois.

As temperatures continue to fall through the single digits, many untreated roads will be slick due to compacted snow and ice.

Drivers should be prepared for snow and ice covered roads. Slow down and allow extra travel time. Also, be prepared for local areas of low visibility due to blowing snow.

It grabs your attention as soon as you walk into the Martin Luther King Interpretive Center \u2014 a huge mural mounted against a back wall, featuring two large images of King, and dozens of\u00a0smaller, related pictures.

A collaborative effort of 47\u00a0artists, including students from six area high schools as well as\u00a0professionals, the mural was the brainchild and gift of Kim Riley-Quinn, director of a nonprofit group called Q-C United.

Riley-Quinn heard about the center and approached Ryan Saddler, president of the Friends of MLK group that is responsible for it, about donating a mural made by people of various cultural backgrounds working together and celebrating a common ideal, a mission of Q-C United.

She then asked Dave Schaeffer, an art teacher at Davenport North High School, to come up with an\u00a0idea and oversee its execution, and she secured a\u00a0$5,000 grant from Quad-City Arts to\u00a0pay for\u00a0Schaeffer's work and supplies.

Stand in front of the mural\u00a0and you see that, while two large images of King's face stand out, the mural actually consists of nine individuals panels, each subdivided into six images each, for a total of 54 images overall.

Up in one corner, there's the\u00a0slogan \"Hands Up, Don't Shoot!\" while in another\u00a0there is the\u00a0Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, where Amelia Boynton, an organizer of the Selma-to-Montgomery civil rights marches was beaten unconscious in 1965.

Other images:

\u2022 Gold medalist Tommie Smith, raising his arm in the black power salute while on the winner's podium at the 1968 Summer Olympics.

\u2022 Chains.

\u2022 A sign reading, \"Help Wanted. Whites Only.\"

\u2022 The faces of the\u00a0four girls killed in the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in 1963 in\u00a0Birmingham, Alabama.

\u2022 A water fountain marked \"Colored.\"

\u2022 The sign of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis where King was killed on April 4, 1968, while standing on a balcony.

As Saddler said, \"there could be a whole program just on this mural.\"

The reason for the nine individual panels is that, in approaching the project, Schaeffer realized that it would be impossible to get\u00a0numerous busy people together\u00a0simultaneously in one place to work on one large piece.

Instead,\u00a0Schaeffer\u00a0built\u00a0nine\u00a0plywood panels that he shipped to various groups,\u00a0then locked together\u00a0as one piece when they were finished, like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.

The guiding framework was the\u00a0two larger-than-life images of King's face that Schaeffer\u00a0divided\u00a0up on a grid system so that each of the nine panels\u00a0would include a portion of those larger images. Then the artists filled in\u00a0with six different smaller images.

The panels are made of\u00a0plywood frames that lock together in back. Before sending them out, Schaeffer primed the painting surface and numbered the backs.

\"It was pretty terrifying,\" Schaeffer said of the project. \"I had never done anything this large. And if one panel was off, the pieces wouldn't fit together.\"

As the panels were completed and returned, Schaeffer assembled them\u00a0in his home in preparation for a grand\u00a0unveiling during Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebrations at St. Ambrose University in 2015.

A couple of art students came over to help him, filling in with paint here and there so that the panels would blend better visually.

\"It really turned into a powerful piece,\" Schaeffer said. \"When people see it in person and\u00a0see the size and see how many pictures there are, it's powerful.\"

Artist Heidi Hernandez, who painted the faces of the girls killed in the church bombing, said, \"It was an honor to be asked to be part of this magnificent mural, in memory of a remarkable human who continues to spread love and empathy through his powerful words and past actions.\"

1. Be Grateful

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough. \u2013 Oprah Winfrey

This quote reminds us that we need to live gratefully. How do we do this? Remember that this moment is not earned but given. The greatest gift of the present moment is the opportunity to (fill in the blank). Every moment brings a new gift if we make ourselves available to it. Make the most of all of life's opportunities and you will experience more joy. A grateful world is a happy world.

Here are 3 ways to express your gratitude:

\u2022 Send hand-written letters to say \"thank you\"

\u2022 Give someone your undivided attention (this includes digital distractions)

\u2022 Share your knowledge or skills (big or little) with others

2. Slow Down

There is a method to the madness as they say. One way to slow down and make the most of opportunities that arise is to: Stop. Look. Go.

Some may call this mindfulness. If we practice mindfulness in our everyday lives and in every moment, then we can increase that gap between impulse and action. Impulse control is important for healthy relationships, purchasing habits, eating behaviors and much more! We could all use a little more impulse control around the holidays.

Here are 3 ways to develop mindfulness:

\u2022 Stop and take a step back to observe the current situation from a broader perspective

\u2022 Look at the facts, weigh your options, acknowledge other points-of-view

\u2022 Move forward knowing you are making a conscious effort to be the best you

3. Laugh More

If you do an Internet search for \"I love to laugh\", the first result will be the song from Mary Poppins starring Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke and Ed Wynn. This was my favorite movie as a kid and this scene has stuck with me through the years. If you know me, you know I love to laugh and can get into some lengthy laughing fits. I believe it's good for mind, body and spirit so I practice it every day; the kind that makes your stomach and face hurt a little.

One minute of laughter is like 10 minutes on the row machine. This \"internal jogging\" has short-term and long-term health benefits. Incorporate more people, photos, songs, movie clips and experiences that make you laugh throughout the day.

Read more about the amazing benefits of laughter in this publication from University of Kentucky Extension:\u00a0http://www2.ca.uky.edu/hes/fcs/factshts/hsw-caw-807.pdf

Your body cannot heal without play.

Your mind cannot heal without laughter.

Your soul cannot heal without joy.

- Catherine Rippenger Fenwick

Wade Aldous, disease control director for the State Hygienic Laboratory at the University of Iowa, isn\u2019t sure how the lab known for confirming cases of West Nile virus, influenza and food poisoning got on a state list of family planning program providers.

\u201cI think that they use the term \u2018provider\u2019 very loosely,\u201d he said. \u201cWe do not see patients.\u201d

The state\u2019s list of 1,431 providers as of Dec. 21, 2017, also includes dermatologists, surgeons and a pulmonologist \u2014 none of whom typically offer family planning services or prescribe birth control \u2014 and more than 100 providers without Iowa addresses or phone numbers.

The Iowa Department of Human Service offers the searchable database as a way for Iowans needing family planning services to find a provider under a new state program. But errors, duplicate names and listings for providers who don\u2019t see patients actually may deter Iowans who need services such as birth control, pregnancy tests and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases, advocates said.

\u201cThat is not a very user-friendly list,\u201d said Jodi Tomlonovic, executive director of the Family Planning Council of Iowa. \u201cIt would be difficult for a patient or potential client to use.\u201d

New state program

The Iowa Legislature last year created the $3 million Family Planning Program to funnel money to women\u2019s health care clinics that do not perform abortions.

Though even under the previous program no taxpayer money was used directly to perform abortions, Iowa rejected federal money that allowed participation by providers \u2014 most notably Planned Parenthood \u2014 that include abortion among their services.

The rate of abortions in Iowa and across the nation has dropped in recent years, with 4,380 abortions, or 7.5 per 1,000 women, performed in Iowa in 2014. More than 5,600, or 9.7 per 1,000 women, were performed in the state in 2011, according to a report from the New York-based Guttmacher Institute.

Iowa\u2019s new Family Planning Program helps cover the cost of birth control, pelvic exams, pregnancy tests and some testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases for women and men ages 12 through 54 with household incomes up to 300 percent of poverty level.

\u2018Don't have the faintest idea\u2019

On June 6, 2017, less than a month before the federal funding was set to expire, Human Services sent a letter to all Iowa Medicaid providers asking them to attest online that they do not provide abortions in order to be listed as a provider eligible for reimbursement under the new program.

Two weeks later, Human Services sent a second letter to clarify that providers that don\u2019t provide family planning services did not need to complete the attestation or submit the paperwork.

\u201cWe think there were many providers who saw a letter from the government saying \u2018Do you do abortions?\u2019 Tomlonovic said. Clinics that don\u2019t provide abortions \u2014 but also don\u2019t provide family planning services \u2014 may have completed the paperwork, she said.

That might explain how Mark Wertheimer, a now-retired cardiothoracic surgeon in Dubuque, ended up in the database of family planning providers.

\u201cI don\u2019t have the faintest idea,\u201d Wertheimer, who The Gazette called at home, said about why he\u2019s on the list.

He said he did not prescribe birth control pills or offer other family planning services in his practice at the Medical Associates Clinic in Dubuque.

Wertheimer doesn\u2019t recall getting a letter about the Family Planning Program.

\u201cI get put on all sorts of lists for things,\u201d he said. \u201cThey get my name mixed up with someone else\u2019s.\u201d

Mason City Dermatologist James Karkos and the Mercy Dermatology Center in Mason City also are on the list.

\u201cThank you for bringing this matter to our attention,\u201d Stephanie Duckert, marketing manager for the Mercy Medical Center-North Iowa, wrote in a Jan. 10 email to The Gazette. \u201cDr. Karkos and the Mercy Dermatology Center do not provide family planning services.\u201d

Duckert said she\u2019s looking into whether Human Services can remove the names from the database. \u201cWe are committed to ensuring our patients and families have accurate information about our providers and services.\u201d

Some providers listed over and over again

Nearly 20 percent of the providers in the database are listed more than once \u2014 in some cases as many as five, six or seven times.

This may be appropriate if a doctor or nurse practitioner practices in multiple clinics, sometimes in different towns, Tomlonovic noted. However, there are many occasions in the database where the same provider\u2019s name is listed multiple times with the same city and phone number.

\u201cWhen you have the same provider and same number and office location listed, that is a problem,\u201d Tomlonovic said.

The Family Planning Program database has 135 listings for independent laboratories, the bulk of which are located in other states including California, New Mexico, Michigan, Illinois, Tennessee and Texas. None of the out-of-state labs have Iowa phone numbers, although some have toll-free numbers.

The UI Hygienic Lab, included in the database, serves patients, but definitely isn\u2019t open to them.

For The Gazette to visit the Coralville lab, a reporter and photographer had to show photo identification, wear lab coats and safety glasses and have an escort. As the state\u2019s hygienic lab, the UI facility screens for Zika, West Nile, Lyme disease, herpes, norovirus, mumps and influenza, among other diseases.

Aldous, the lab\u2019s disease control director, didn\u2019t know until The Gazette called this month the state had a public database of eligible family planning providers that included his lab.

\u201cAs a laboratory, we only perform reference testing, but I believe we are listed because we participate in the Iowa Community Based Screening Services program,\u201d Aldous said of the program that screens at-risk populations for chlamydia, gonorrhea and other sexually transmitted diseases.

Samples from patients at student health centers, correctional institutions and family planning centers are sent to the lab, explained Kris Eveland, a clinical lab technical specialist at the lab.

The lab, which tested about 21,000 samples in 2017, reports the results back to the clinics and to the Iowa Department of Public Health, he said.

The state reported earlier this month cases of gonorrhea in Iowa have more than doubled since 2013.

\u201cI\u2019ve been here for 10 years and it\u2019s been a very obvious increase,\u201d Eveland said. \u201cBefore it would be one or two (positive) samples a day. Now it\u2019s more common.\u201d

Medicaid 'strives to improve' list

Julie Lovelady, the state\u2019s Medicaid deputy director, declined to talk with The Gazette by phone about the Family Planning Program database. But Human Services spokesman Matt Highland did answer some questions by email.

\u201cThe list is generated automatically from each provider\u2019s enrollment record with Iowa Medicaid,\u201d he said. \u201cBy pulling data directly from this system, it offers the most real-time information, as it updates each night.\u201d

The list includes all providers who have attested they don\u2019t do abortions and are eligible for reimbursement for family planning services, he said. Labs didn\u2019t have to complete an attestation, Highland said, but if they did, they were included in the database.

The department stands by the multiple listings of providers who completed attestations at different addresses.

\u201cIf the provider is affiliated with a specific location, and if that location completed the attestation, Iowa Medicaid\u2019s provider enrollment system recognizes the provider each instance,\u201d Highland said.

Tomlonovic from the Family Planning Council said she\u2019s asked the department to remove inaccurate and duplicative information from the database. \u201cWe have said to DHS several times they need to clean up the list,\u201d Tomlonovic said. \u201cThey know that.\u201d

When asked why concerns with the database remain, Highland said Medicaid \u201cstrives to improve our provider lists continually.\u201d

However, he added: \u201cIowa Medicaid does understand that due to complex nature of provider enrollment, some confusion may be caused.\u201d

Tuesday

Alleman at Assumption basketball: It is the battle for the 'A' Rivalry trophy between the two Quad-Cities parochial programs.

Alleman enters at 10-7 following a Friday night home conference loss to Rock Island. Assumption (5-6) had its four-game win streak snapped Friday by Davenport North.\u00a0

Assumption won last year's meeting 67-63 at Don Morris Gym. Senior Ray Thrapp had 18 points in that contest. Alleman assistant coach Hank Murray, in his first year on the staff, was a former coach at Assumption.\u00a0

Wednesday

Judson at St. Ambrose basketball: In the midst of a three-game home stand, the Bees welcome Judson University, located in Elgin, Illinois, to town for a women's and men's doubleheader.

The Fighting Bees enter the week 9-9 overall, 4-6 in league play following a Saturday loss on the road to Holy Corss. Judson is 8-12, 4-6.

Meanwhile, the Queen Bees (7-13, 5-5) have won three of their last four games. Judson is just above St. Ambrose in the conference race at 6-4.

Thursday

Rock Island at Moline girls basketball: The top two teams in the Western Big Six square off at Wharton Field House. Rock Island, ranked fifth in Illinois Class 4A, has won 25 consecutive league games while Moline is a game behind the Rocks.\u00a0

Rock Island's Brea Beal had 25 points and 15 rebounds in the team's 53-35 win over Moline in late November. Hannah Thiele had 18 points for the Maroons, who were within 10 points after three quarters in that game.\u00a0

Friday

Kalamazoo at Mallards: The Quad-City Mallards come out of the all-star break looking for some positives after a tough last month. The Mallards snapped a 13-game losing streak last Friday with a win over Indy and hope to build on that against the Wings at 7 p.m.

Sam Warning leads the Mallards with 16 goals this season after scoring three over the weekend and the return of C.J. Motte from the AHL helps stabilize the goaltending after the Mallards allowed nearly five goals per game during the losing streak.

Saturday

High school wrestling: With conference tournaments and the postseason just a couple weeks out, two of the more prestigious weekend events take place in Clinton with the Bob Lueders Invitational and in Orion with the Bob Mitton Invitational.\u00a0

Assumption had three individual champions last year en route to winning the team title for the second straight year at the Lueders Invitational. Matt Robertson (132) and Julien Broderson (182) will be back to defend in what has been a 23-team tournament. Pleasant Valley's Eli Loyd and Camanche's Baylor Crigger also won weight classes last year.

Host Orion won last year's 34th annual Bob Mitton Invitational, a tournament that brings the top Illinois small schools together in the Q-C. Fulton, Mercer County, Sherrard and Orion are among the schools in the field.\u00a0

Purdue at Iowa basketball: After three straight road games, Iowa is back at home to welcome fifth-ranked and Big Ten conference leader Purdue to Carver-Hawkeye Arena. It is the only regular-season meeting between the schools.\u00a0

Iowa snapped its five-game Big Ten losing streak with an overtime win at Illinois last week. Winners of 13 straight, Purdue (17-2, 6-0) is second in the Big Ten in scoring (85 ppg.) and first in 3-point shooting (41.5 percent).

IOWA CITY \u2013 Mitch Bowman took the mat Sunday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena determined to fight for something worth fighting for \u2013 respect.

The junior from North Scott broke a 6-6 deadlock after two periods to defeat Oklahoma State\u2019s 19th-rated Keegan Moore, positioning Iowa\u2019s seventh-ranked wrestling team to earn a statement-making 20-12 win over third-rated Oklahoma State at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

\u201cWe came out here ready to fight to show people what we\u2019re about. This was a big dual for us and whatever it took to get it done, that\u2019s what we were going to do,\u2019\u2019 Bowman said. \u201cMy job was to come out and compete the way I did, to fight for every point.\u2019\u2019

Bowman moved ahead in his match at 184 pounds with an escape two seconds into the third and took Moore down with 1:24 remaining before picking up a point for riding time to win a 10-6 decision.

\u201cI took him down twice in the first period so I knew I could do it again. I knew I had the point for riding time, but I wanted that last takedown to put it away,\u2019\u2019 Bowman said. \u201cThe place was going crazy. I fed off that energy.\u2019\u2019

A crowd of 13,485 provided plenty of that from the moment 125-pounder Spencer Lee scored eight first-period points on his way to a 10-5 decision over sixth-ranked Nick Piccininni to the second Sam Stoll finished off a 6-4 win over 10th-rated Derek White at 285 with a takedown with 39 seconds remaining in a second overtime period.

The Hawkeyes won six matches against the Cowboys and picked up bonus points in just one, a 23-8 technical fall by second-rated Brandon Sorensen over 14th-ranked Boo Lewallen at 149.

Like Lee, who was unable to sustain his early surge, Sorensen started fast.

He collected back points in the first 40 seconds of his match but unlike Lee, who said he must learn from the way his match played out, Sorensen finished even faster. He collected five of his nine takedown during a frenzied final period.

\u201cI don\u2019t know if I approached it any differently than normal. But, I did come out ready and felt good from the start,\u2019\u2019 Sorensen said. \u201cYou only get so many chances during a season to make a statement. We took a step forward today and that is what we wanted to do.\u2019\u2019

Iowa coach Tom Brands called the dual which allowed Iowa to improve to 9-0 on the year one the Hawkeyes had been building toward since the start of the season.

\u201cThis was about two teams in the same category trying to get to that next category. People talk about Penn State and Ohio State being at the top and the rest of us trying to get there,\u2019\u2019 Brands said. \u201cIf you\u2019re going to do that, you\u2019ve got to take steps forward and I felt like we did that. Now, we\u2019ve got to keep moving.\u2019\u2019

The Cowboys, falling to 6-1, struggled to get moving against Iowa.

\u201cIn some of the matches we needed to win, we didn\u2019t. In some of the matches where I thought we might find some bonus points, we didn\u2019t,\u2019\u2019 Oklahoma State coach John Smith said. \u201cWe just didn\u2019t do enough.\u2019\u2019

Oklahoma State recorded just three first-period takedowns against the Hawkeyes, all coming in wins against Phillip Laux and Vince Turk at Iowa\u2019s problematic 133 and 141 weight classes.

Brands said his team must find a solution there as it works toward duals at second-rated Ohio State next Sunday and at home against eighth-ranked Michigan on Jan. 27.

\u201cIt\u2019s about looking good out there and we\u2019re not even at a point where we\u2019re winning ugly,\u2019\u2019 Brands said. \u201cWe\u2019re losing ugly. Winning ugly is the next step. Then we can worry about looking good. We\u2019ve got to get past the silliness. We\u2019ve got to grow up in a hurry.\u2019\u2019

In matches against top-five opponents, Laux dropped a 16-6 major decision to Kaid Brock at 133 and Turk fell 4-0 to Dean Heil at 141.

The losses left Iowa behind 7-3 before Sorensen pushed the Hawkeyes in front with his technical fall, preceding a 9-2 decision by the Hawkeyes\u2019 second-ranked Michael Kemerer at 157 and a 5-2 win by 11th-ranked Alex Marinelli over eighth-rated Chandler Rogers.

That extended Iowa\u2019s lead to 14-6, a margin the Cowboys\u2019 14th-rated Jacobe Smith cut to 14-9 with a 3-1 win over Joey Gunther at 174 before Bowman took the mat.

\u201cBowman came out tough he stayed tough and when he does that for seven minutes, there\u2019s a lot to like about Mitch Bowman,\u2019\u2019 Brands said.

Bowman insists Sunday proved there\u2019s a lot to like about the Hawkeyes.

\u201cThe way Lee came out at the start, the way Sorensen put up points and way Stoll finished it off, that\u2019s Iowa wrestling,\u2019\u2019 Bowman said. \u201cWe showed that today and that\u2019s the fight we have to have from here on out.\u2019\u2019

DES MOINES\u00a0\u2014 Many nursing homes in Iowa\u00a0\u2014 particularly in rural areas\u00a0\u2014 are struggling to make ends meet.

A big part of the problem, nursing home officials say, is that payments from a government health care program are insufficient and sometimes not timely.

And the state\u2019s privately managed Medicaid system adds another layer of stress to nursing home budgets, officials say, because of the management companies\u2019 appeals process and administrative burden.

More than 400 nursing homes in Iowa accept patients who pay through Medicaid or Medicare, government-run health care programs for the elderly, disabled and poor, according to a federal database.

Many of those facilities, industry officials say, are feeling a budget pinch, in large part, because Medicaid reimbursement rates are too low and payments often are delayed as claims are contested.

Medicaid is jointly funded by the federal government and states, which can set their level of payments to providers within federal guidelines.

States, including Iowa, must be thoughtful when setting Medicaid payment rates as the program continues to chew up a large share of the state budget. At $1.3 billion, Medicaid spending comprises 18 percent of Iowa\u2019s general fund spending; that is second only to public education funding, according to the state\u2019s nonpartisan legislative agency.

For states, that high price tag must be balanced with creating a payment system that is sufficient for health care providers to deliver adequate care to patients who use Medicaid.

A growing number of nursing homes are finding the payments too low, officials say.

Iowa\u2019s state budget is experiencing its own struggles, with shortfalls that have led to spending cuts in each of the past two years.

Although the state has not cut Medicaid spending among its budget cuts, the Medicaid reimbursement levels are \u201cinadequate,\u201d said Brent Willett, president of the Iowa Health Care Association, which advocates on behalf of more than 700 long-term care facilities in the state.

Willett said long-term Medicaid residents in nursing homes are underfunded by an average of $30 per day, or $10,950 per year. He said because many nursing homes operate on profit margins of less than 1 percent and many at a loss, those costs are passed on to residents with private insurance in the form of higher rates.

Willett said often those residents with private insurance are then forced to spend down their savings, more quickly putting them in a position to need Medicaid, creating what he called \u201can unsustainable cycle.\u201d

Rural facilities feel that pressure even more, Willett said, because they have more Medicaid patients than urban facilities, and thus fewer private patients to absorb the impact of low Medicaid payments. While more than a half of residents in Iowa long-term care facilities are covered by Medicaid, dozens of facilities have at least roughly two-thirds of their patients covered by Medicaid, Willett said.

And smaller, rural facilities do not have the resources to shoulder increasing costs, he said.

\u201cThis places rural facilities in an extremely precarious position: as state and federal Medicaid reimbursement continues to fall further and further behind the cost of care, and with fewer private pay residents to pass the costs along to, finding ways to absorb the losses becomes increasingly challenging,\u201d Willett said.

Nursing homes closed last year in Charles City, Le Mars and Storm Lake. The Charles City facility cited financial constraints as the reason for closure; the Le Mars facility had received poor service ratings from federal regulators.

Iowa\u2019s privately managed Medicaid system is compounding the problem for nursing homes, Willett said.

While the private companies that manage the state\u2019s $4.7 billion Medicaid program do not set payment rates, they oversee claims and payments. Sometimes payments are denied and wind up in an appeals process; Willett said this can put financial stress on small nursing homes that do not have the resources to cover the loss of that payment while it is in the appeals process. He said some facilities are forced to take out loans to cover payroll costs while waiting for Medicaid payments from the managed care organizations, or MCOs.

\u201cWe continue to work with the managed care organizations to advocate for the development of more consistent managed care claims payment systems,\u201d Willett said. \u201cThese denials\u00a0\u2014 most of which subsequently enter an appeals process\u00a0\u2014 are growing across the state and have resulted in providers accumulating large accounts receivable balances as they await approval for services rendered and costs incurred.\u201d

A spokesman for United Healthcare, one of the two companies managing Iowa\u2019s Medicaid program, said the company works closely with doctors and health care providers, and pointed to a recent state report that said 100 percent of medical and pharmacy claims were administered within 30 days, and that providers are reimbursed at the full Medicaid rate.

\u201cHaving operated in Iowa for more than 30 years, UnitedHealthcare maintains strong relationships with providers across the state and we are committed to working with those partners to address any questions,\u201d said Jesse Harris, a spokesman for United Healthcare.

A spokesman said the state health department is working with the MCOs to ensure appropriately prompt Medicaid payments to providers, and that the state is hearing those payments are being paid more timely.

\u201cWhile we\u2019re hearing from providers that claims are being paid more timely, and the situation is improving, there may be some older outstanding claims that the MCOs are working to resolve. The department will continue to monitor this and is committed to providing strong oversight of our managed care partners,\u201d state health department spokesman Matt Highland said.

The sub sandwich landscape certainly has changed over the years, but one Quad-City original has stood the test of time.

Hungry Hobo, the chain founded in 1973 by Jim Gende, Ray Pearson, Joe Gende and Tom Spero, marks its 45th anniversary this year. Current owner Pryce T. Boeye, the president and CEO, plans to celebrate the milestone with new promotions and some rebranding in its packaging and uniforms.

\"While we're still in the process of trying to expand our concept in eastern Iowa, we also wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate our 45th anniversary throughout 2018,\" he said.

Hungry patrons will enjoy the first promotion, which lasts through the month of January: buy one King sandwich and get a Regular sandwich for 45 cents. Similar deal will be offered every other month.

\"We're hoping to get people excited with promotions that tie back to the 45 years we been in business,\" Boeye said.

This spring, regulars also will find that Hungry Hobo rolls out a new phone app that has been combined with its Hobo Mobile Rewards, he said. Under the current loyalty program, customers receive a free sandwich after 11 store visits.

\"But now you will get points based on your order size and you can turn around and redeem those for anything on our menu,\" he said.

Hungry Hobo has 13 Quad-City area locations and employs nearly 250 people. It is headquartered in Rock Island, which is also the home of its bakery and commissary. For more information, visit www.hungryhobo.com.

Modern Woodmen celebrates 135 years

Speaking of anniversaries, Rock Island's Modern Woodmen of America quietly celebrated 135 years in business earlier this month.

Modern Woodmen was founded on Jan. 5, 1883, in Lyons, Iowa, by Joseph Cullen Root. He was inspired by a church sermon about how the pioneer woodmen had cleared forests to create homes for their families, which in turn, helped to strengthen communities and secure futures.

\"Fraternalism is about joining together as a community, and that's at the heart of what we do,\" said W. Kenny Massey, Modern Woodmen's president and CEO.

Today, the fraternal financial services firm serves 750,000 members nationwide through its 1,600 financial representatives. The home office on Rock Island's riverfront employs 500 people.

Hy-Vee's tuna supports seafood goal

Hy-Vee Inc. continues to make progress on expanding its Seafood Procurement Policy and now includes its private-brand shelf-stable tuna among its responsibly sourced seafood.

The West Des Moines grocery chain announced that 100 percent of the private label tuna is sourced from environmentally preferred fisheries.

In addition, it has partnered with FishWise, a nonprofit seafood consultancy that promotes the health and recovery of ecosystems through environmentally responsible business practices. Hy-Vee also has added its name to a letter to the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission calling for the international organization to adopt measures to address key issues around sustainable tuna management.

'That guy' at JA Biztown was the real mayor\u00a0

In the Quad-Cities, no business opening is too small or unusual for a celebration, even if it is in one of our pretend cities: JA BizTown.

I covered a real ribbon cutting last week at the Junior Achievement learning lab in downtown Davenport. It was a typical event, the Quad-Cities Chamber, Junior Achievement supporters and business leaders. But the large majority of the audience was a roomful of fifth graders from Davenport's Fillmore Elementary, who at JA BizTown to spend the day learning about how a city (and for that matter, life) works.\u00a0

The event celebrated the generosity of Dr. V.R. Alla and his wife, Nirmala Alla, who made the creation of a new Health & Wellness center at BizTown possible. The couple, JA folks and other business types were all on hand to cut the ribbon\u00a0\u2014 even the students' own elected mayor,\u00a0 fifth grader Morris Nunn got in on the action.

But when the moment came to snip the ribbon and all was quiet, one young Fillmore student said (fairly loud) \u201cWho\u2019s that guy?\u201d

That guy, who slipped into the crowd to help with the festivities was Davenport Mayor Frank Klipsch, who is always ready with scissors when there\u2019s a ribbon to cut.

One of the consequences of the relaxation of laws regarding marijuana possession in many parts of the country is an increase in emergency visits for pets that have ingested a toxic amount of marijuana or its derivatives, THC and CBD, both of which can cause significant disease or even death in pets.

In many cases, the victims are young dogs that have eaten edibles \u2014 candy or other confections containing the active ingredients. This is particularly troubling as these products may also contain chocolate, raisins or the artificial sweetener xylitol \u2014 ingredients that are dangerous on their own.

Cats, which\u00a0can suffer the same effects as dogs, will\u00a0more likely inject\u00a0marijuana by eating\u00a0the plant.

A wide range of signs or symptoms may signal a pet has ingested a toxic amount \u2014\u00a0dilated pupils, difficulty walking or incoordination, seizures and both fast and slow heart rates. Because of the difficulty in determining if a pet has, in fact, been exposed to marijuana, it\u2019s vitally important for owners to be forthright about their pet and its potential ingestion of marijuana.

Veterinarians don\u2019t have an ethical or legal obligation to report accidental toxicosis to any authority so legal repercussions should not be considered when owners are asked if their pet could have been exposed to marijuana.

While specific antidotes aren\u2019t available, pets may be induced to vomit or receive oral charcoal treatments to minimize absorption of marijuana products. In most cases, supportive care is advised although pets that experience signs of hypexcitibility may need sedatives or drugs for a too-slow or too-fast heart rate.

It\u2019s important for owners to realize that pets are not small people and the effects of marijuana on their pet can be serious. Always be prepared to give a complete and honest account of your pet\u2019s risk of exposure should an emergency occur.

ROCK ISLAND \u2014 As good as the finish was for the Augustana men's basketball team Saturday night, it was almost enough to make the Vikings forget about the start.

The Vikings didn't lead Carroll until Nolan Ebel hit a 3-pointer with 8:58 left in regulation to beat the shot clock that was part of a huge 23-4 run that rallied Augie to a nail-biting 66-62 CCIW victory over Carroll at Carver Center.

\"I had just missed a couple of 3s and kept telling myself that I have to keep my confidence. I saw the shot clock running down and everybody was looking to me to shoot,\u201d said Ebel. \u201cThere's no better feeling in the world than hitting a go-ahead 3 at home.\u201d

That offensive spurt, however, was keyed by the nation's second-ranked team's defense. With Carroll shooting lights-out in the first 24 minutes and the Vikings struggling in every facet, the hosts needed to get stops in order to get the game turned around.

After trailing 42-32, the Vikings got plenty of stops as the Pioneers (4-11, 0-6 CCIW) went the next 10-plus minutes with only one basket and one free throw.

\u201cWe guarded so much better in the second half,\u201d said Augie coach Grey Giovanine after his club moved to 12-3, 4-2 CCIW. \u201cSo much of our offense is generated when we get stops, get run-outs, get blocked shots and get rebounds. We didn't get any of those in the first half. In the second half, our defense was much more dialed in and we played with more energy.\u201d

In the second half, Carroll was just 10 of 27 from the field after going 12 of 21 in the opening stanza and leading 34-27 at halftime.

The Pioneers used both man and a 2-3 zone defense to confound the Vikings those first 24 minutes and had the upper hand in every statistic \u2014 including rebounds \u2014 to show for it.

Augie got a spark \u2014 much of it provided by senior A.J. Dollmeyer as the last big man option off the bench. His interior presence and energy were key as were his four rebounds and two points. Augie also got seven points from freshman Carson Frakes.

Also keying the run was junior guard Chrishawn Orange, who changed the tempo early in the second half with a couple of key buckets. Still, the Vikings trailed 46-40 with 11:53 left. Then Orange (17 points) hit three free throws after being fouled on a 3-point attempt, Ebel scored a bucket and then hit his fateful 3 after Dollmeyer grabbed two offensive boards to keep alive a possession.

\u201cA win is a win and we're excited to get that at home, especially after what happened last game (an 86-81 loss to Wheaton),\u201d said Ebel.

Giovanine admitted that his team \u2014 still in transition with some new schemes \u2014 \u201cdidn't play particularly well.\u201d But the Vikings will take the much-needed victory.

\u201cThat speaks to the depth of our league,\u201d said Giovanine. \u201cThose guys haven;t won a (league) game and gave us all we could handle. That's what our conference is all about this year.\u201d
