The Bridges loft apartments will soon begin construction on its second building months ahead of schedule after half of first building apartment building has rented at a quicker pace than expected.\u00a0

\"We've been thrilled with the velocity of reservations especially as the weather is starting to warm,\" developer Frank Levy, president of Newbury Living, said Friday during a hard hat tour of the downtown Bettendorf lofts project. The $22 million project is being built on the site of the former Twin Bridges Motor Inn.

\"Bridges\"

Construction workers make progress on the Bridges lofts Friday in Bettendorf.

The West Des Moines developer was so excited to see the latest progress and views that he as soon as he arrived Friday morning, he grabbed a hard hat and climbed up a wooden ladder to the second floor. He was so quick, the construction workers didn't have a chance to tell him the stairs were accessible.\u00a0

Of the 76 units being built in the first phase, he said 38 have been spoken for and months ahead of the building's Thanksgiving Day completion. \"You don't generally plan months and months ahead of your move if you're a renter,\" he said, adding typically renters commit to move two or three months ahead.

\"The interest has been earlier than we were told we would get,\" Levy said. The commitment level now has pushed up construction of the second building, which will be located on the far east of the site and complete the design's U-shape. In the outdoor center courtyard will be a swimming pool and patio, also looking out at the Mississippi River.\u00a0 \u00a0

Levy said the renter mix has been more empty-nesters relocating from within and outside the Quad-Cities as opposed to a more young professional clientele that the building had expected. \"The higher price point units have gone first. That's exciting for us because it means we'll have nice, long-term tenants.\" In addition, he said it leaves more affordable units still available. Monthly rents range from $750 to $1,750. Covered parking stalls also are available for rent. Surface parking will be provided.\u00a0

The five-story Bridges will provide parking on the ground floor as well as some enclosed common space and a retail space. \"Three-fourths of the units will have a river view,\" said Levy, who snapped cellphone photos from a number of vantage points, including a prime river views from what will be a roof patio deck overlooking the ongoing Interstate 74 bridge construction.\u00a0

\"Frank

Frank Levy, president of Newbury Living, snaps cellphone photos from the Bridges loft, under construction Friday in Bettendorf.

Steve Pennock, the project manager with Build to Suit, the Bettendorf-based general contractor, said the weather had caused a few delays but the project caught up after the framers brought in light towers, and increased their hours and work force. He said the framing crew should finish on the first building this week and now can move directly to the second phase, or Building B. Construction will begin on the roof next week and when it is complete, other interior work can begin.\u00a0 \u00a0

Scott Haynes, the building superintendent for Build to Suit, said nearly 50 to 60 tradesworkers are on the site now, but the crew should reach as many as 80 at a time as the work moves inside.\u00a0

The second building will be tied into the first building with the elevator shafts in the middle. In all, the Bridges will have 132 units \u2014 56 units in the next structure. There are micros, studios, and one- and two-bedrooms.

The building was designed by ASK Studio, a Des Moines-based architect.\u00a0

\"It turns out that we're attractive to a wider demographic than we anticipated,\" Levy said. \"It's been a lot of empty-nesters and people re-locating to the Quad-Cities as opposed to primarily young people. That's exciting for us because it means they'll be nice, longer-term renters.\" He said the expectation was for a tenant mix with more young professionals and a few baby boomers.

Pennock said the construction has been sped up by the use of pre-constructed panel walls. They are built off-site in a controlled environment by Lumber Specialities in Dyersville, Iowa.\u00a0

\"They bring them here and they're ready to go right in place,\" he said. \"They go up faster, but they cost more upfront.\"\u00a0

Levy said moving up the second phase means the entire building should be ready to move in by April or May 2019. He said tenants will live in the first building during about four to six months of construction on the second building.

He is enthused by all the other construction activity downtown, including plans by Build to Suit's Kevin Koellner to demolish the dilapidated buildings directly across the street from the Bridges. Levy said it is the first time he and Koellner, who also is an investor in the Bridges, have worked together in the Quad-Cities. Koellner has not disclosed his plans across the street.

Pennock said demolition should begin next month.\u00a0\u00a0

In addition, Ascentra Community Credit Union is building a new headquarters down the street and a fire department expansion is underway at Bettendorf City Hall, right next door to the Bridges.

IOWA CITY \u2014 As the Iowa football team worked through the last of its 15 spring practices, safeties Amani Hooker and Jake Gervase left the Iowa offense with a reminder that there is work to be done.

Linebacker Amani Jones then added the exclamation point.

Hooker and Gervase intercepted Nate Stanley passes and Jones \"delivered the boom\" as promised in his newfound role at middle linebacker Friday night in front of an estimated crowd of 9,300 at Kinnick Stadium that watched the Hawkeyes\u2019 only public appearance of the spring.

\"We were in game uniforms, but we were hardly game ready,\" Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said.

Preparing for his 20th season as the Hawkeyes head coach, Ferentz said his team made strides this spring but will return to the field this summer with plenty of work to do before a Sept. 1 season opener against Northern Illinois.

Ferentz used the Hawkeyes\u2019 offensive line as an example.

Iowa returns starters at the tackle positions in Alaric Jackson and Tristan Wirfs, and Ferentz said Keegan Render has exceeded expectations in his transition to center, but the Hawkeyes will continue to work to solidify the guard positions and develop depth when fall camp opens.

\"We have a chance to have a good line, but it\u2019s a lot like our entire football team, we have a ways to go to get there,\" Ferentz said. \"It\u2019s like a lot of years. We have a chance to be a good team, but we\u2019re not very deep right now.\"

With a north end zone grandstand project restricting use of a portion of the field, Iowa simply ran one series of plays after another as it worked from north to south throughout the 90-minute workout.

Stanley quarterbacked through a timed half that opened the practice and reserves Peyton Mansell, Spencer Petras and Ryan Schmidt ran the offense the remainder of the evening.

None led Iowa on a drive of 60-plus yards for a touchdown, although Schmidt had an 18-yard pass to Dominique Daffney called back by a penalty.

When early drives stalled, Miguel Recinos converted on a 31-yard field goal and Caleb Shudak hit from 40 yards while Keith Duncan just missed from 43 yards.

Hooker and Gervase were disruptive on defense. Hooker picked off a pass and later recovered a fumbled reception by T.J. Hockenson one play before Gervase intercepted a Stanley pass.

\"Just trying to make those guys work,\" Gervase said. \"Nate was working a little short-handed with Nick (Easley) out, but the idea is to challenge them just like they challenge us.\"

Ferentz liked that Hooker\u2019s pick came on a play Iowa\u2019s offense had not run much during the spring.

\"It shows that he was into it, is making progress, and we\u2019ve seen that from those guys this spring,\" Ferentz said.

Stanley, who found a reliable replacement for Easley in sophomore Max Cooper, believes the spring has been productive for the Hawkeye offense.

\"We made steady progress,\" Stanley said. \"It\u2019s been a little different this spring, going through it a second year. I\u2019m more comfortable, and I feel like I\u2019m ahead of where I was a year ago at this time. I\u2019m feeling good about where things are headed.\"

Ivory Kelly-Martin and Toren Young rotated with the first team at running back, working behind a line that included Cole Banwart and Landon Paulsen as starting guards with Jackson and Wirfs opening at tackle and Render playing center.

Bettendorf\u2019s Mark Kallenberger saw time with the starting unit at a guard spot as well.

\"Nate, you can tell, is more comfortable out there,\" Render said. \"He\u2019s in charge and confidence-wise, that is helping bring us all along. We know we have work to do, but I think we come out of spring feeling like things are headed in the right direction.\"

On the other side of the ball, Jones added to that comfort level as well, delivering a couple of strong hits from the middle linebacker position Josey Jewell has filled for the last three-plus seasons.

\"Amani\u2019s settling in there,\" Ferentz said. \"He\u2019s stepped in and has done a good job. Nick (Niemann) outside has done the same thing. ... Amani loves the game, and you can see it in the way he plays.\"

And like the rest of the Hawkeyes, Ferentz views the work that Jones does between now and the start of the season as the critical component to just how good this Iowa football team can be.

\"We\u2019ve done a good job to get to where we are now, but I think we all realize that we have so much more to do,\" defensive end Anthony Nelson said. \"I think we can all see the potential. Now, it\u2019s all about turning that potential into reality with the work we put into it over the next few months.\"

Genesis Health Systems is eliminating 48 positions across the system, system spokesman Craig Cooper said Friday.

Genesis has a number of campuses in the Quad-City region including in Davenport and DeWitt in Iowa and Silvis and Moline in Illinois.

Cooper said that the positions eliminated include 12 executive and management positions. Reducing costs was the reason given.

The jobs being eliminated represent about 1 percent of the Genesis workforce, he said.

Genesis, however, has more than 300 open positions to be hired. \u201cHopefully they will be a match for one of these other jobs and stay,\u201d Cooper said.

Those who do not find another position within Genesis will be provided severance benefits as per policy, he said.

\u201cHealth care organizations across the country, including Genesis, are challenged by a rapidly changing health care environment with shrinking reimbursements and escalating costs\u201d\u2019 Cooper said in a news release. \u201cDespite many successful cost-saving measures in recent years, Genesis now must take additional action to position the organization for continued financial viability.

\u201cThis adjustment will reduce costs and align our workforce to ensure sustainable financial performance,\u201d he said. \u201cAt the same time we make this difficult announcement, we are maintaining our ability to deliver excellent patient care.\u201d

Cooper said that workforce reductions are always a last resort to cut costs.

IOWA CITY \u2014 A minor injury denied Kyle Groeneweg the chance to catch his first football in front of a crowd at Kinnick Stadium on Friday, but the newest addition to the Iowa depth chart at receiver believes he is ready to contribute.

A transfer from the University of Sioux Falls, the senior sat out last season after leaving the NCAA Division II program for a chance to join former West Lyon High School teammates Jake Newborg and Brandon Snyder on the Hawkeye roster.

Groeneweg worked on the scout team as he sat out last season but was one of four receivers listed on the Hawkeye depth chart for spring practices.

He was positioned behind Brandon Smith at split end while returning receptions leader Nick Easley, who also missed Friday\u2019s public practice with a minor injury, is listed ahead of Ihmir Smith-Marsette at the other receiver spot.

Groeneweg, also a potential contributor in returns on special teams, said beyond the injury spring workouts have been productive.

\"It\u2019s been a good deal for me,\" he said. \"I was able to pick up a lot and spend some time outside the slot as well. I\u2019m trying to help the team anyway I can. I just want to help.\"

The chance to be reunited with his former high school teammates is an added bonus.

\"I\u2019ve always wanted to be a Hawkeye, and after a couple of years at Sioux Falls, it was something I felt like I needed to do,\" Groeneweg said. \"I wanted to prove to myself that I could compete at this level. I didn\u2019t want to have any regrets it was over. I\u2019m learning every day. It\u2019s been a good thing.\"

CATCHING ON: With two receivers not participating Friday, sophomore Max Cooper made the most of the opportunity. He finished with eight receptions during the Hawkeyes\u2019 90-minute scrimmage.

\"The good news is it wasn\u2019t just today, but it wasn\u2019t much more than today,\" Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said.

\"The last couple days he\u2019s come alive. It\u2019s like, \u2018OK, there is a guy wearing number 19 out there.\u2019 Hopefully, that\u2019s the start of a trend, not just a blip on the radar screen.\"

UP FRONT: Ferentz likes the development he sees taking place on Iowa\u2019s lines on both sides of the ball.

\"We don\u2019t do a lot of live work, but I think that\u2019s one area we can (evaluate) pretty well in practice, and I\u2019ve liked the way they\u2019ve competed, both sides of the ball, interiorly and all the linemen. The ends, tackles on defense, all five guys offensively, they\u2019ve competed,\" Ferentz said.

\"We don\u2019t have enough depth right now, but I think we have a chance to have a good line.\"

A LEG UP: Iowa rotated punters throughout Friday\u2019s practice and a now-healthy Ryan Gersonde is giving Colten Rastetter a run for the starting role.

Both had that their moments under the lights at Kinnick. Rastetter dropped a 35-yard punt on the 2-yard line after the first drive of the scrimmage stalled. Gersonde followed by booming one 52 yards in the other direction before the next series began.

With Iowa also breaking in a new long snapper \u2014 Jackson Subbert and back-up tight end Nate Vejvoda rotated Friday in ongoing competition there \u2014 the punting competition will likely continue into fall camp.

WEEKEND VISITORS: Iowa hosted Georgia running back Tyler Goodson on an official visit last weekend, which was made possible by recent NCAA rule changes that allow juniors to take official visits.

Ferentz\u2019 preference is for Iowa to continue to host the majority of its official visits following the regular season, but he concedes that there will be exceptions for athletes who are considering to end the recruiting process with an early college choice.

\"I think we\u2019re going to keep an open mind, but we still want to do it in a controlled way,\" Ferentz said.

Unofficial visitors included 2019 commit Logan Lee of Orion and running back recruit Jirehl Brock of Quincy, whose list of finalists includes Iowa, Iowa State and Illinois. Brock plans to make a decision before the start of his senior season.

A SIXTH SENSE: Ferentz still wonders why former Hawkeye defensive end Drew Ott wasn\u2019t given an additional year of eligibility by the NCAA after missing the bulk of the 2015 season with injuries.

\"I\u2019m still mad about Drew Ott, just for the record,\" Ferentz said. \"I\u2019m for young people, and I\u2019m all for the guys who have gotten six years. Drew Ott totally got the short end of the stick.\"

IOWA CITY \u2014 Jake Gervase wrapped his arms around more than interception Friday night during the Iowa football team\u2019s public conclusion to spring practices.

The Hawkeyes\u2019 senior free safety from Davenport Assumption has caught on to the idea that the Iowa defense has the potential to do great things during the 2018 season with continued work and development.

\"I think we have a chance to be something special,\" Gervase said. \"I think the possibility is there. It\u2019s up to us to see if we can make it happen.\"

Gervase bases his belief on the experience the Hawkeyes return both on the defensive line and in the secondary as well as the potential he sees in a group of linebackers competing to fill three lineup vacancies.

Collectively, Gervase sees depth that wasn\u2019t there a year ago when he we was competing for his own opportunity that led him to record three interceptions as a first-year starter at safety last fall.

The rotations that developed both on the front and back ends of the Iowa defense during the 2017 season have created beneficial depth and a cohesion that is making a difference.

Gervase saw that play out on Friday, working with Amani Hooker at the safety position with the starting unit during the 90-minute finale to Iowa\u2019s 15 spring practices.

Both continued to demonstrate their playmaking ability, creating havoc with a familiar Iowa offense that was testing them with some unfamiliar looks.

Hooker and Gervase both had a role in making it difficult for Iowa\u2019s top offensive unit to sustain drives, each intercepting a pass.

\"We had really good communication,\" Gervase said. \"With the first group, I don\u2019t think we had many mental errors. We saw some new formations that we hadn\u2019t seen during spring. We executed well.\"

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz liked what he saw from the pair during Friday\u2019s practice.

\"Spring games aren\u2019t critical certainly, but they\u2019re good indicators sometimes of what guys are doing,\" Ferentz said, adding that he likes the leadership he sees developing from the safety positions that Gervase and Hooker have provided.

Ferentz sensed things coming together from a leadership practices as the end of spring drills neared.

\"I think we see the guys, particularly this past week, come together a little bit better and look a little more like a team,\" Ferentz said. \"Then right along with it, we see some leadership starting to develop in a lot of areas, which is encouraging.\"

Gervase finds himself building off of the confidence he gained with his performance during his junior season.

\"Things aren\u2019t so new right now. I feel a lot more comfortable on the field and I should,\" he said. \"I have another year of experience under my belt and that only helps. It does make a difference.\"

Gervase believes the Iowa defense has a chance to make a difference as well.

\"I really feel like we have a chance to have as good of a defense as we\u2019ve had since I\u2019ve been here. A lot of guys who are back were playing pretty good football late last season, and we\u2019re working to take that to the next level,\" Gervase said.

That started with a commitment to offseason strength and conditioning work, improved numbers in the weight room and a desire to make it all fit together after returning to the for spring practices that began on March 21.

\"We realize we aren\u2019t where we need to be for the season yet, but I think we\u2019re ahead of where we were a year ago,\" Gervase said. \"Spring ball creates the foundation to build on. I think we\u2019ve got a pretty solid start.\"

Experience has been the main component for the Hawkeyes.

\"With experience, you can play a little bit faster, read some things a little bit quicker. I think with our \u2018D\u2019 line, with so much experience, a lot guys who have played a couple of years up there and in our secondary we have a good amount of guys who have started some games,\" Gervase said.

\"It\u2019s not about trying to do anything extra, but it allows you to play a little quicker, to make some more plays. If we\u2019re all on the same page, it can be a pretty special defense.\"

Gervase wants to help make that happen as he prepares for his final collegiate season.

\"I\u2019m trying to step up my game,\" he said. \"It\u2019s my senior year. I know the system. I\u2019m comfortable in it, and I want to build on the experiences that have helped me get to this point. For this point in time, I feel good about where things are headed.\"

CEDAR RAPIDS \u2014 Eight candidates hoping to the next governor of Iowa played nice with each other Saturday morning, preferring to direct their barbs at the incumbent instead.

Forty-five days before the June 5 primary election, the Democratic and Libertarian candidates revealed few big-picture differences during the League of Women Voters of Iowa forum at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids that drew about 300 people. A livestream of the forum was viewed at 51 watch parties around the state, the League said.

For the most part, the candidates agreed that public K-12 education, health care and mental health should be priorities for the governor.

Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds frequently was criticized for selling out to corporate interests, maintaining privatized management of Medicaid and state budgeting practices that led to midyear cuts and borrowing from reserve funds.

\u201cYou could make a horror film out of this (administration),\u201d Libertarian Jake Porter said. \u201cBoris Karloff could come back and play Kim Reynolds.\u201d

Among Democrats, retired businessman Fred Hubbell called Reynolds \u201cmisguided.\u201d Physician Andy McGuire said the governor \u201cputs profits ahead of people\u201d and John Norris, a former aide to Sen. Tom Harkin and Gov. Tom Vilsack, accused her of practicing Reagan-era \u201ctrickle-down economics.\u201d Her \u201cmonumental\u201d water quality bill \u2014 the first piece of legislation Reynolds signed into law \u2014 was nothing but \u201cleftovers from last year,\u201d state Sen. Nate Boulton of Des Moines said.

Looking ahead, Iowa State University diversity officer Ross Wilburn said the election is about Iowa\u2019s legacy of high-quality education, productive workers, welcoming outsiders and rural-urban cooperation. He said he would \u201cbuild upon the legacy that has been destroyed by the current governor.\u201d

That can be achieved only by \u201cdoing politics differently,\u201d nurse and union leader Cathy Glasson of Coralville said. \u201cStatus quo policies and politics isn\u2019t getting the job done in Iowa.\u201d

While most of the candidates said they supported the Second Amendment, but called for \u201ccommon sense\u201d gun laws, Libertarian Marco Battaglia said too many people ignore the \u201celephant in the room. This is things that are happening in our community \u2014 drug violence, drug trafficking, human trafficking.\u201d

Candidates frequently mentioned their experience as a reason for voters to support them. Boulton reminded the audience he has voted on many of the issues being discussed.

McGuire and Glasson referenced answers through their medical experiences and talked about being able to work in collaborative ways to address problems.

Although he has served in a number of roles in state government, Hubbell said he\u2019s not a politician. That might sound good to voters, Norris said, but \u201cit\u2019s OK to recognize the value of being a good politicians because that\u2019s how you drive the public toward good decisions.\u201d

There is speculation that none of the six Democrats will get the 35 percent in the June 5 primary needed to win the nomination outright, and that the nominee will be determined at the party\u2019s June 16 state convention.

Early voting in the primary begins May 7.

The eventual nominees will face Reynolds in the Nov. 6 election. The winner will be sworn into office in January.

In all the years Kirk Ferentz has been the head football coach at Iowa, it\u2019s never happened.

Never. Not even once.

You need to go all the way back to 1997, to the final years of the Hayden Fry era, to find a time when the Hawkeyes had two players selected in the first round of the NFL draft.

But it could happen next Thursday when the NFL clubs sit down to divvy up the top college talent. Most mock drafts have Iowa cornerback Josh Jackson being selected in the lower half of the first round and quite a few of them have center James Daniels also going in the first 32 picks.

Interestingly, when the Hawkeyes had two No. 1s back in 1997, it also was an elite cover corner (Tom Knight) and an athletic offensive lineman (Ross Verba).

It\u2019s also interesting \u2014 and probably not coincidental \u2014 that Iowa\u2019s two potential No. 1s are players who have foregone their final year of college eligibility. The program has had only seven players previously turn pro early, and three of those players also were No. 1 picks.

The various mock drafts out there have Jackson going to Seattle at No. 18 to Detroit at No. 20, Carolina at No. 24, Pittsburgh at No. 28 or New England at No. 31. Daniels showed up in the first round in several mock drafts a few weeks ago, but now is not in most of them although some experts still project him to possibly go to Baltimore at No. 16, Buffalo at No. 22, Tennessee at No. 25 or Minnesota at No. 30.

While it would be an uncommon occurrence for Iowa to have two first-rounders, it\u2019s hardly unusual for a Big Ten team.

It\u2019s happened to Ohio State nine times in the past 20 years. The Buckeyes had five No. 1 selections in 2006 and 2016, three in 1999, 2004 and last year, and two in 2001, 2007, 2009 and 2014.

Over that same span, Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Illinois and Rutgers all have had a year in which they had two or more No. 1s.

Dwight Freeney announced his retirement from the NFL last week. He was to sign a one-day contract with the Indianapolis Colts, the team he played for in the first 11 pro seasons, then hang it up.

Freeney has a good chance of landing in the Pro Football Hall of Fame someday after 16 seasons as one of the league\u2019s most relentless pass rushers. He made first-team All-Pro three times, played in seven Pro Bowls and had 125.5 career sacks, tied for 17th on the all-time list.

He also made a big impression on a rookie linebacker from Bettendorf back in 2010.

Pat Angerer recalled on Twitter on Friday that the first time he called a defensive huddle, Freeney stopped him in mid-sentence and barked \"Say it with your (expletive) chest!\"

\"Taught me the nice lesson of whatever you say, say it with confidence and believe it,\" Angerer added.

It\u2019s nice that they decided to build a new outdoor ballpark in the Twin-Cities a few years ago. It\u2019s just too bad they didn\u2019t put a retractable dome on it.

The Twins had three games of a weekend series with the White Sox wiped out by the weather last week as most of the country has been smacked by a wintry spring. Some MLB teams already have had five or six games postponed.

There should be an MLB rule about this: Any new stadium built north of the Wrigley-Fenway line must have a dome, retractable or otherwise.

Diminutive Des Linden became the first American woman in 33 years to win the Boston Marathon on Monday. That name may not be familiar to many, but the 5-foot-1, 97-pound Linden has run in the Quad-City Times Bix 7 in the past, finishing 10th in the Davenport race in 2010.

That was before she married triathlete Ryan Linden. She was known as Desi Davilla then.

The Boston Marathon was run in some of its worst weather ever, but it apparently didn\u2019t deter many people from participating in the iconic race.

As far as we can tell, 26 people from the Quad-Cities completed the 26.2-mile course. The top time among the locals was recorded by Mitch Dietrich, of Bettendorf, who ran it in 3 hours, 33 seconds.

Adam Lingner kind of figures his entire athletic career was a longshot.

He received one of the last available football scholarships at the University of Illinois in 1979. He was selected in the ninth round of the 1983 NFL draft. The draft doesn\u2019t even have that many rounds anymore.

And yet, the former Rock Island Alleman multi-sport star somehow ended up spending 13 years in the NFL and playing in four consecutive Super Bowls as a member of the Buffalo Bills.

It all happened because Lingner was astonishingly accurate at rifling a football backward between his legs.

\"My whole thing of playing in the NFL was just such a longshot,\" said Lingner, now 57. \"I barely got a scholarship to Illinois.\"

The longshot is still paying off.

More than 20 years removed from his final game, Lingner will be one of this year\u2019s inductees into the Quad-City Sports Hall of Fame. He will be honored, along with Franc Freeman and Jenni Fitzgerald, at the 37th annual Quad-City Times Salute to Sports on May 7 at Bettendorf High School.

Wayne DeSutter, who served as Alleman\u2019s head football coach during Lingner\u2019s high school career, recalls that Lingner not only was a very good athlete but got high marks for character and work ethic.

\"He was as quality a young man as you were ever going to find,\" said DeSutter, who now lives in Leesburg, Florida.

\"And he was just a good athlete. He went to the U of I and progressed every year. He got his chance and took advantage of it.\"

Bob Smith, the assistant coach who recruited Lingner for Illinois, said he was one of his favorite players he ever coached, a great person, an exceptional athlete and an almost impeccable snapper.

\"It was almost a gift,\" said Smith, now retired and living near Peoria. \"You could see he worked so hard on it, and he was just outstanding.

\"I think he stayed around in the NFL for the first eight or nine years because he stayed in good shape and could play as a backup center. He wasn\u2019t just a snapper in the beginning. But the true thing that kept him in the NFL was he was the best snapper in the league.\"

The late Bruce DeHaven, who served as the Bills\u2019 special teams coach for much of the time Lingner was with the team, often said he would take Lingner over any other long snapper.

\"When it's fourth-and-7 and you're holding onto a touchdown lead and you're kicking out of your end zone late in the game, you're mighty happy that you have Adam Lingner back there,\" DeHaven said in a 1992 interview. \"There may be snappers in the league who are as good as Adam, but I know there's nobody who's any better.\"

Solid background

There was no mystery where Lingner got his work ethic and quest for excellence. His father, Wesley, worked very hard in a variety of sales jobs, and his mother, Marion, was the night switchboard operator at the Rock Island Argus while holding various other part-time jobs.

Smith said one of the things that sold him on Lingner as a prospect was meeting his parents.

As the third oldest of four boys, Lingner began playing about every sport at a very early age.

\"I remember being the kid that was hanging around during my brother\u2019s practices,\" he said. \"While they were working at one end of the basketball court, I\u2019d be at the other end shooting hoops or sometimes just sitting and listening to the coach.\"

His football career began in a sixth-grade YMCA football league at Douglas Park in Rock Island on the same field on which the first NFL game was played in 1920.

\"So there I am in the sixth grade, playing on the same field that Jim Thorpe played on,\" Lingner said. \"And then I go to college and I\u2019m playing on the same field that Red Grange played on. When I found that out in 2014, I was standing in the (pro football) Hall of Fame and I started getting a little emotional. \u2026 It just kind of hit me like a ton of bricks how intertwined my life has been with the NFL.\"

His athletic career took a fateful turn very early in his first year at Alleman in a seemingly innocuous exchange with freshman coach Don George.

\"He asked me to throw him a ball that he needed for a drill and I grabbed it and threw it through my legs,\" Lingner said. \"I must have thrown a pretty good spiral because he sent it back to me and said \u2018Do that again.\u2019

\"That weekend I was snapping punts for the freshman team and another week later I was snapping for field goals and extra points. This was pretty natural. I don\u2019t ever remember doing it before then. I don\u2019t remember even just playing around with anybody. I pretty much think that was the first time I ever threw a ball through my legs.\"

By his sophomore year, Lingner was suiting up for varsity games strictly to handle the snaps. As a junior and senior, he started at both offensive tackle and defensive end while also handling the snapping duties for a team that went 11-7 during that two-year period.

\"He kept working at it,\" DeSutter said. \"He was a tremendous snapper in high school. He was a really good offensive tackle, too, but he could really long snap.\"

Getting his shot

Of course, that\u2019s not all Lingner did from a sports standpoint. He also was a prominent member of the basketball team and fondly recalls a couple of times when he dunked on opposing big men, including Rock Island\u2019s 6-foot-10 Blake Wortham.

In track and field, he became the first Alleman athlete ever to place at state in a field event, taking eighth in the shot put as a senior in 1979.

At 6-4 and 205 pounds \u2014 about 60 less than he weighed during his NFL career \u2014 Lingner had a handful of football offers from such schools as Western Illinois, Illinois State and Northern Iowa, but he held out hopes of possibly playing at a higher level.

Illinois had showed some interest, but head coach Gary Moeller didn\u2019t think the Alleman star was a great prospect. As Lingner learned many years later, Smith kept lobbying on his behalf.

\"At that level, I really just had one guy who really believed in me, and that was Coach Smith,\" Lingner said. \"He fought with Gary Moeller, who wasn\u2019t real excited about me. I was a pretty scrawny kid, but I had a big enough frame.\"

Even Smith wasn't that sure about Lingner at first.

\"I remember watching some film, and I knew he was a good player, but what sold me was when I came up to watch a couple of basketball games,\" Smith said. \"His athleticism was really outstanding. He could dunk and run and handle the ball and do things other big kids couldn\u2019t.\"

Smith finally won out. Lingner got a scholarship.

Not surprisingly, he became Illinois\u2019 long snapper right away as a freshman in the fall of 1979, although it took him some time to get any other sort of playing time.

Moeller was fired after the Illini went 2-8-1 in 1979, and he was replaced by San Francisco 49ers line coach Mike White. The Illinois program began to improve steadily, and Lingner progressed along with it.

He became the starting center as a senior in 1982, but he suffered a mid-season shoulder injury and missed a few games. He later got back into the lineup at guard and helped the Illini to their first bowl game appearance in 19 years. Lingner played well against Alabama in the Liberty Bowl and also was selected to play in the Senior Bowl, but he still wasn\u2019t entirely sure he had a future in the pros.

\"The odds of me getting drafted and having the career I had, it was just time after time, just a longshot,\" he said. \"It was a longshot that I\u2019d be successful in big-time college football, Big Ten football, and then not having a huge career there \u2026 I mean, what are the odds?\"

The NFL

The Kansas City Chiefs selected Lingner in the ninth round, and he became the lowest draft pick to make the team. He actually started one game as a rookie before eventually becoming primarily a long snapper.

That was just fine with Lingner.

\"It\u2019s hard to be a full-time player and a long snapper,\" he said. \"I remember when I was snapping in high school, you\u2019re so tired, you\u2019re winded. It\u2019s just harder to snap very well when you\u2019re playing all the time and your hands are banged up, you\u2019re exhausted, and then you\u2019ve got to go throw a perfect strike every time.\"

He stayed with the Chiefs until 12 games into the 1986 season, when he was released. He spent time on the rosters of both the Patriots and Broncos before landing with Buffalo in 1987.

He ended up playing 140 regular-season games with the Bills and was with them through the agonizing stretch in which they lost in the Super Bowl four consecutive years. Lingner was one of only 20 players who were on all four of those teams.

The most distressing of those losses was the first one, in 1991. The Bills were in position to defeat the New York Giants as kicker Scott Norwood lined up for a 47-yard field goal in the final seconds. Lingner made a perfect snap, and Frank Reich, now the head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, made a perfect hold. Norwood\u2019s kick sailed wide to the right and the Bills lost.

Lingner learned years later that his father, who suffered from heart disease, had to take seven nitro pills to cope with the stress as he sat and watched from the stands.

The Bills lost to the Redskins in the Super Bowl the following year and to the Dallas Cowboys in both 1993 and 1994.

Lingner said he still encounters fans who tell him how hard it was for them to watch their team get to the big game year after year and then lose. He reminds them that it also was pretty hard on the players themselves.

\"I can say honestly, though, maybe they do feel worse about it than me,\" he said. \"I feel bad about it, and I think there were guys on our team who maybe feel worse about it.

\"Sometimes I feel worse that I don\u2019t feel worse about it because I\u2019m just one of those silver lining guys. I try to find the positive in everything because if you don\u2019t you\u2019re just going to make yourself miserable. \u2026 It still was an amazing accomplishment for our team.\"

Quest for perfection

Lingner finally retired from football following the 1995 season, citing tendinitis in his knees and chronic elbow injuries.

He was able to stay in the league for so long because he was so dedicated to his craft.

Even now, he seems to remember every imperfect snap he ever made. Not that there were that many.

He said in 21 years as a long snapper through high school, college and the pros, he never once had a snap sail over the head of a punter although he said he came close to doing it in his final game.

He also remembers a bad snap on an extra-point kick during a 1989 game against the New York Jets. His snap veered toward the holder\u2019s helmet and slithered through his hands.

\"We won the game and I was miserable. We won the division and I was miserable,\" Lingner said. \"I guess the moral of that story is my expectations were really high. I wasn\u2019t used to missing snaps.\"

DeHaven said in a 1992 interview that it was the only bad snap Lingner made over a five-year stretch. That included practice and training camp.

Lingner also recalls what he believes is the best snap he ever made.

It came on Jan. 3, 1993, in a memorable playoff game against the Houston Oilers, in which the Bills made the biggest comeback in NFL history. After falling behind 35-3 in the third quarter, Reich stepped in at quarterback for the injured Jim Kelly and led a furious rally to tie the score at 38-38 and send it to overtime.

In the extra period, the Bills got into position for a game-winning 32-yard field goal. It was one of those frigid, blustery days in Buffalo, and Reich, as the holder, asked Lingner to deliver the ball slightly lower than normal to minimize the effects of the wind.

\"If you look at the replay of that, it couldn\u2019t be any lower and not be a problem,\" Lingner said. \"I put the ball about six inches off the ground right over the spot. He just catches it, puts the tip down and kick, and we win. That\u2019s one of those moments where you think \u2018Holy crap, I can\u2019t believe I did that.\u2019

\"That was a moment for me. I enjoyed it at the time, but it\u2019s one of those where I can look back now and just think \u2018Wow.\u2019\"

Life after football

Lingner hasn\u2019t found his post-football career to be quite as exhilarating. He has worked a variety of different jobs, dabbling in radio work, working in the Bills\u2019 marketing department and opening a horse stable in Buffalo. He now lives in Frisco, Texas, where he works for Sprout Foods Inc.

\"The hardest thing about going from that very competitive industry into other industries is you\u2019re so used to working with people who are highly motivated,\" Lingner said. \"And then you go to work in the real world with people that aren\u2019t that motivated.\"

He said he hasn\u2019t stayed in close touch with many of his old teammates although he still is good friends with Steve Christie, the kicker who booted that memorable game-winner in Houston in 1993.

However, he still loves seeing former teammates at Bills reunions, including one to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the comeback game just a few months ago.

\"There\u2019s nothing I enjoy more than having a reason to get together with everybody,\" he said.

I dare anyone to tell me that \u201cBlumhouse\u2019s Truth or Dare\u201d isn\u2019t a watered-down ripoff of \u201cFinal Destination.\u201d

What a disappointment. Jason Blum\u2019s Blumhouse Productions has been behind some of the finest horror movies \u2013 including \u201cInsidious,\u201d \u201cParanormal Activity\u201d and \u201cGet Out\u201d \u2013 in recent years. \u201cTruth or Dare\u201d will not be on anyone\u2019s list of decent horror movies, let alone good ones.

If you\u2019ve seen the trailer, you\u2019ve seen the setup. Olivia (Lucy Hale) has decided to volunteer at a Habitat for Humanity project instead of accompanying her friends on spring break in Mexico \u2013 this is their senior year, and they decide to take one last wild trip before they graduate.

When Olivia is approached by a creepy guy in a bar, a stranger named Carter (Landon Liboiron) stands up for her and pretty much chases the other guy away. Carter and Olivia really hit it off, so she gladly goes with Carter and the rest of her friends to an abandoned church. This is a bad idea indeed, because that\u2019s where they begin to play a game of \u201cTruth or Dare.\u201d

The game, which can have catastrophic results if the players don\u2019t cooperate, follows the group home until all the players begin to realize their lives are in danger and they need to do something to resolve the game \u2026. Fast.

Meanwhile, bodies keep piling up in bizarre ways (yep, just like the \u201cFinal Destination\u201d flicks.)

There are character clich\u00e9s, but no real development. Olivia is the nice girl, Markie is the party girl, and so on. We don\u2019t root for anybody because nobody is all that interesting to begin with. I did like one character\u2019s predicament that seemed realistic: Brad (Hayden Szeto), who is gay, is afraid to come out to father, a conservative police officer who thinks Brad has a girlfriend.

There are a few \u201cBoo!\u201d moments along the way, but the scares are as skimpy as the plot itself.

Despite the lackluster characters, the performances are noteworthy. I\u2019m sure we\u2019ll see these young actors turn up elsewhere in more challenging, more memorable roles.

Judging from the story\u2019s conclusion, it appears that the screenwriters wrote themselves into a corner and couldn\u2019t figure a way out. The finale is one of the most ridiculous, illogical endings I\u2019ve ever seen. Several viewers in the audience in which I saw this left the theater puzzling out loud over the last scene.

The truth is, this just isn\u2019t worth your time or your money. Not even on a dare.

A couple of weeks ago, I spent a weekend in L.A. with my friend and business mentor, Melyssa Griffin \u2014 a fab entrepreneur and creator of the Pursuit With Purpose podcast. I shared with her that life was going well for me in lots of ways (exciting travel, happy marriage), but I felt stuck in other ways (some scattered focus, not sleeping well).

To evaluate my life where I am right now and then focus on what I need to improve, she broke down an excellent framework for me \u2014 one that I've been dying to share with you ever since.

As a life coach, I'm always looking for new ways and techniques to see the world and our place within it. And the space our life consumes is never just one thing \u2014 we have many roles, perhaps as a parent, a spouse, a lawyer, a yogi, a BFF from heaven... you get the idea.

Our lives are rich and multi-faceted, and a holistic check-in on you elevates your entire life experience. Use Griffin's PURPOSE framework laid out here, an hour of your time and a trusty journal to give your life the spring assessment it deserves.

Just choose a couple questions from each section and spend a few minutes journaling each one. You'll intuitively pick the ones that you need to answer in the moment. Focus on what jumps out at you!

Ready? Let's begin!

(P)hysical and Mental State:

How are my body and physical health?

Do I exercise?

Do I eat healthy foods to nourish my body?

Am I giving in to negative emotions?

Where am I excelling with my physical and mental state, and where are my opportunities for growth?

(U)nity:

Do I have at least five people in my life I can turn to for support?

Am I around the types of people I want to be surrounded by \u2014 who help me become who I want to be?

Do I have a strong relationship with my partner \u2014 or if I'm single, do I confidently believe that I will find love when I'm ready?

How am I positively contributing to the people in my life? And what am I gaining from them too?

(R)elationship With Self:

Do I truly love myself?

Do I see myself as complete and perfect, but not finished?

How do I talk to myself?

Do I know why I do the things I do \u2014 both positive and negative?

Do I practice self-care or do I see it as an unnecessary luxury?

Do I have a consistent practice to deepen my connection to myself?

(P)rofit and Work:

Does my work support the lifestyle I want to be living?

Am I happy with my business and/or career?

Am I doing work that inspires me?

Am I hitting my income goals?

Do I have blocks around money and abundance?

(O)wnership:

Am I taking ownership of my choices and experiences?

Do I recognize when I've done something right?

Do I take initiative when following my purpose \u2014 am I an action-taker?

Am I aware that I only have control over myself and nothing else?

Do I see the value in taking ownership and responsibility?

(S)piritual Connection:

Do I feel connected to something bigger than me?

Do I allow or deny my intuition?

Do I sometimes feel alone and unsupported in my life and decisions, or do I trust that things are turning out for the best?

Do I feel like I have the wisdom inside of me or do I often look outside of myself for answers?

(E)xpansion:

Is what I'm doing having a positive impact on the people and world around me?

Am I contributing to the world in a positive way?

Am I spreading my purpose and mission to others?

Am I intentional about continuing to expand and grow, or am I scared of growing into my highest self?

Once you're finished with all the sections, you can rate yourself from 1-10 in each area, if that feels good. What you need to focus on and improve will probably become clear, fast.

For me, I need to sleep more which means attending fewer happy hours, no fro-yo orders after 9 p.m., and less people-pleasing in terms of going out constantly (I also gotta lose the FOMO on that one).

With the lofty business goals I've set, I'm gonna have to be a rested, healthier version of myself to fulfill my vision for this year, because my personal vision for expansion is big.

What about you? What pops out at you as needing your love and attention?

There's nothing like the power of taking full responsibility for your own well-being. And there's no better day to begin.

ATLANTA, Ga. \u2014 MaKhi Haynes runs his fingers down the keyboard as instructor James Shealy looks on.

A smile slowly crosses Shealy\u2019s face as he watches the Centennial Academy student play the \u201cMexican Hat Dance.\u201d

\u201cNow give me some of that soul from last week,\u201d said Shealy.

He gently prods the teen not to look down at his hands but up at the music. Sing the notes, he said.

\u201cIf you can sing it, you can play it,\u201d said Shealy. \u201cYou internalize the notes. He has a naturally soulful voice. It\u2019s a style I recognized as special. He has a natural vibrato that makes his voice go up and down a little bit within the same note. He kind of does that naturally.\u201d

\u201cDa-a-a-h\u2026\u201d

MaKhi is one of seven students enrolled at the Kevin Baker Music Program, which was launched by the Friends of English Avenue in January. The music program provides lessons to children who live in the community and is named in honor of Baker, a local volunteer and musician who died in 2017. His sister, Suzanne Baker, was the nonprofit\u2019s first director.

\u201cEveryone said you\u2019ve got to get the kids,\u201d said John Gordon, a Buckhead businessman who co-founded the nonprofit with the Rev. Andrew Motley, senior pastor of Lindsay Street Baptist Church. \u201cFor some of the older people, the die is already cast. If you get the kids early enough, it gives them options. They may choose music over joining a gang.\u201d

The Atlanta neighborhood is still very much in transition. Historically, it was a middle-class and working-class neighborhood \u2014 first for whites, then African-Americans. In later years, drugs and crime took over the streets as residents died or moved out.

The community started getting attention after the 2006 police shooting death of 92-year-old resident Kathryn Johnston after a botched \u201cno-knock\u201d raid.

To \u201cpay\u201d for the lessons, students have to complete homework assignments and bring in a signed voucher from their teachers. The voucher is worth $25 \u2014 the cost of a lesson.

Research has shown that music stimulates many areas of a child\u2019s development from enhancing reading skills and comprehension to building social, emotional and language tools.

The program is run by James and Julia Shealy, who moved to the English Avenue neighborhood from Smyrna.

He majored in music education at Kennesaw State University and is trained in classical piano and percussion. He also writes, produces, does studio work and has his own band.

Julia Shealy started singing in church and also worked in musical theater. The Shealys lead the worship ministry at River City Church in Smyrna, Ga.

The relationship between the Shealys and the students extends beyond music. They\u2019re neighbors.

All but one student lives on their street.

\u201cThis is what we wanted,\u201d he said. \u201cWe want to build those close relationships with trust.\u201d

Their goal is to have a dozen students by summer. They hope word will get around. The program bought some instruments. Others were donated. If the students practice and perform at the first program recital in the fall, they get to keep the instrument they were loaned at the start of their lessons.

Every Thursday afternoon, the upstairs of the two-story green house on Lindsay Avenue is filled with sounds of children playing the keyboard, guitars or drums. The Shealys\u2019 Jack Russell terrier, Clay-Bobby, wanders in and out of the room. A diffuser sprays a mist of peppermint and citrus essential oils, which Julia Shealy said has a calming effect on the students and helps heighten their focus.

A sign hangs on a wall near the window: \u201cIt Always Seems Impossible Until It Is Done.\u201d

There have been positive changes in the students\u2019 performance in school.

\u201cParents have told us they notice their kids come alive,\u201d after their time in the program, said Julia Shealy.

\u201cWe hope to inspire and educate the kids to possibly explore the pursuit of music as a career as well as develop a lifelong discipline and love for music,\u201d she said.

Outside there are many distractions.

Friends of English Avenue was formed to help revitalize the neighborhood. Efforts included housing and community gardens, one of which is located next to where the students take lessons.

At one point, to address safety concerns, the nonprofit renovated a house and let police officers live in it without charge. When the first family moved out, officials found it difficult to get a second officer to move in.

\u201cThe condition of the neighborhood had a lot to do with it,\u201d said Gordon. \u201cI also think that it was politics, which was a disappointment. I sort of adopted the attitude that God was in charge. Maybe, this was not going to happen.\u201d

Instead of police, in stepped the Shealys.

\u201cThis is a lovely young couple devoted to their faith and feel that this is their calling \u2014 professionally and musically,\u201d Gordon said.

MaKhi Haynes has already started composing.

He plays alto sax in his school band, but wanted to try a different instrument.

Keyboards \u201care pretty cool. You can play in treble clef and bass clef. There\u2019s a lot more variety in how you want your music to sound.\u201d

Another student is Aryanna Maymi-Booker, 9, who wants to be the next Katy Perry. She and two of her siblings participate in the program. She and her half brother Auvalli Booker, who is also 9, recently faced off on a friendly quick chord challenge to correctly identify and play a chord on the acoustic guitar selected by their teacher. The prize was a single Hershey\u2019s kiss, which Auvalli Booker, who wants to be an architect, claimed.

\u201cI think guitar is the second most important instrument in the band,\u201d said Aryanna Maymi-Booker, who likes to play and sing.

A younger sister, Aniyah Royal, is a beast on the drums.

Aniyah Royal\u2019s mother, Vanessa Booker, said she\u2019s noticed a difference in the children.

The class is important to them. Recently, Aryanna forget her lesson voucher in her desk. When she realized that she didn\u2019t have it, she broke down in tears.

Her mother has noticed Aryanna is learning responsibility. Sometimes, her daughter might be stressed out because she has to help with her younger siblings. Now, she\u2019s got \u201cto be the role model.\u201d When she\u2019s in music class, though, all that goes away. \u201cEmotionally, she feels at peace. She can be herself.\u201d

\"Lipstick

Lipstick can be expensive, so it's nice to have a few drugstore favorites in the mix to ease your purse strings. Here's a look at some of the best shades of red you can find on the cheap.

Red lipstick is my not-so-secret weapon when I want to feel powerful and confident. It's like armor \u2014 an accessory I swipe on to embolden myself before a meeting or activity that holds weight. That's not to say anyone needs makeup to be a force; it's just nice to have when I want it.

That being said, lipstick can be expensive. Applying it whenever I want (and reapplying over and over, as the case may be) means I go through tubes like candy. So it's nice to have a few drugstore favorites in the mix to ease my purse strings. Below, find Byrdie editors' favorite drugstore red lipsticks and why we stock up whenever we can.

MAYBELLINE NEW YORK COLOR SENSATIONAL CREAMY MATTE LIPSTICK IN RICH RUBY, $8

\"TS-DRUGSTORE-REDLIPSTICKS-CMG\"

Maybelline New York Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick in Rich Ruby $8 (Target)

\"This is my go-to drugstore red. It's a true red with bluish undertones, and I love that one swipe of it instantly makes me feel more polished. The texture is what really gets me though. It's a velvety matte formula that feels hydrating when you apply and doesn't dry out. If I want just tint of color on my lips, it's also really pretty when you pat it on with your finger instead of applying directly from the bullet.\" \u2014 Faith Xue, editorial director

BURT'S BEES SATIN LIPSTICK IN SCARLET SOAKED, $7

\"BURT'S

Burt's Bees Satin Lipstick in scarlet soaked, $7. (Target)

\"If you're in the mood for a subtler, lower-maintenance red lip that you don't have to worry about drying out, getting on your teeth, or smudging everywhere, I highly recommend Burt's Bees Satin Lipstick in Scarlet Soaked. Its formula is not only made with 100 percent natural and cruelty-free ingredients, but it's also genuinely one of the most comfortable and moisturizing lipsticks you'll find thanks to all the moringa and raspberry seed oils. In terms of look, it's more of a creamy sheer red, not a high-impact statement red, but it's definitely buildable and thus versatile for day-to-night. I'm a fan!\" \u2014 Amanda Montell, features editor

REVLON ULTRA HD MATTE LIP COLOR IN ADDICTION, $10

\"REVLON

Revlon Ultra HD matte lip color in Addiction, $10. (Target)

\"Matte formulas won me over from the jump \u2014 there's something so practical about applying your lipstick once and not having to touch it for hours on end. It's even better when the formulation has a smooth, creamy texture like this $10 gem that feels so comfortable on my lips I forget that it's there. The plush, velvety applicator makes my lips feel pillow-soft. I'm not the easiest to please when it comes to finding the right red. I love blue-based undertones against my dark complexion. And I found my match with this bold red that makes me feel put-together even on my worst days.\" \u2014 Maya Allen, assistant editor

NYX MATTE LIPSTICK IN INDIE FLICK, $6

\"NYX

NYX Matte Lipstick in Indie Flick, $6.99. (Amazon)

\"This was one of the very first matte lipsticks I ever tried, and it's still one of the best drugstore formulas out there in my opinion. It's a true matte matte without any hint of sheen and doesn't really budge after you apply. I love this orangey-red shade; it reminds me of summers in L.A.\" \u2014 Faith Xue, editorial director

NYX MATTE LIPSTICK IN PERFECT RED, $6

\"NYX

NYX Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red, $6.99. (Amazon)

\"I'm also partial to Nyx's Matte Lipstick, only I gravitate more toward a truer, bluer red. It's called Perfect Red because, well, it is. It glides on creamy but matte, stays put without drying your lips, and I'd argue the color is absolutely universal \u2014 the blue undertones make it such that it can complement so many different skin tones. My friends and I all wear it and joke it's the 'traveling pants' of lip colors. Plus, it's $6 and can be bought in bulk on Ulta.\" \u2014 Hallie Gould, senior editor

REVLON SUPER LUSTROUS LIPSTICK IN CERTAINLY RED, $7

\"Revlon

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Certainly Red, $7. (Target)

\"I'm decidedly over the super-matte lip look. I was a big proponent of it during its peak because as someone who guzzles coffee and water all day long, lipstick typically doesn't stand a chance against the cups, food, and beverages it encounters. As a result, I've been on the hunt for a satin-finished, creamy lipstick that still deposits a ton of color and will last through lunch. Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in Certainly Red is a strong contender for a bright, cherry-red lip that doesn't make me look like the Joker by 3 p.m. I love to tap it on my lips, then pat it in with my finger for more of a stain, and if my lips are particularly dry, I'll layer lip balm over it. (Doing so still doesn't lead to bleeding and fading, which is amazing.)\" \u2014 Lindsey Metrus, managing editor

Annual Pet Fest set for Two Rivers Church

The annual Pet Fest, a celebration of animals and the humans who love them, will be 2-4 p.m. Sunday, May 20 at Two Rivers United Methodist Church, 1820 5th Ave., Rock Island.\u00a0

The Rock Island Animal Hospital will co-sponsor the event. A doctor and staff from the hospital will be available for questions, and can meet animals, although they will not be able to do check-ups.

Vendors of pet-related goods are invited to set up booths in the parking lot. At a photo booth, people can pose with their animals.

The Rev. Robb McCoy will lead a blessing of the animals at 3:30 p.m. with readings and a special time for prayer with each pet.

At last year's event, most of the animals were dogs, although one person brought a chicken and at least two people brought pictures of their cats.

All animals at the Pet Fest must be leashed or caged at all times. They also must be properly vaccinated, and well-socialized to other animals. As a safety measure, retractable leads are not allowed.

For more information, call 309-788-9384.

With three freshmen in the starting lineup, Bettendorf head coach Todd Hornaday called Friday's match against Ankeny Centennial a baptism by fire.

The Class 3A fourth-ranked Bulldogs suffered their first setback Friday night, falling to No. 3 Ankeny Centennial 4-0 at TouVelle Stadium.

\"Centennial looked hugely motivated to play tonight,\" Hornaday said. \"We're disappointed, but I think it showed some things we need to work on, a good opportunity for this team to work on plowing through adversity.\"

It had been relatively smooth sailing for the Bulldogs up to this point. Despite graduating over 60 percent of its offense from last season, Bettendorf had won its first five games, including a win over then No. 1 Ames.

The Bulldogs never could get any momentum against the Jaguars, falling behind 1-0 just six minutes in on a goal from Lexie Gutknecht and 3-0 at halftime.

Bettendorf keeper Justine Pearson made eight saves, but the Jaguars took advantage of second and third opportunities, with three of the four goals coming off loose balls in front of goal.

\"It's more communication in the back, knowing where you're supposed to be, keeping your mark and trying to stay on the ball, stay tight and don't get too spread out in the defense,\" Pearson said. \"Now we have a lot of insight how we work as a team in tough situations. We can use that to move forward in practices and adapt to what we know is coming for us.\"

The speed of Centennial (2-1) took its toll on the Bulldog offense as Bettendorf (5-1) mustered just four shots all night.

\"Losing to a team that played better than we obviously did tonight, that doesn't bug me because we know we'll be a better team in the long run,\" Hornaday said. \"Obviously we've got to clean up some things, make a few less mistakes and have confidence bringing the ball forward against good teams. When you're doing it against teams that are a little slow bringing pressure on you, not nearly as physical as Centennial is, that's one thing.\"

It's important Bettendorf doesn't let this loss do too much to deflate the early season success.

Hornaday pointed out last year's state champion Ames fell to West Des Moines Valley 5-0 early last season before beating Valley 1-0 in the state championship.

Last year Bettendorf beat the Jaguars early only to fall to them in the state quarterfinals.

So plenty can change between now and June.

\"They're aggressive, and we were just hoping to match that aggression coming in from what we saw on film coming in,\" Centennial head coach Chris Allen said. \"I think as they gain confidence as a team and become more relentless, they're going to take what they're good at and just be able to do it for a longer time.\"

When the Iowa State and Illinois women\u2019s volleyball teams met up for an exhibition match on Friday night at Bettendorf High School, there was one player who felt right at home.

Former Bulldog all-stater Josie Herbst, now playing for the Cyclones, was back on the court where she left her own mark with one of the best high school volleyball programs in the state.

The junior-to-be gave her hometown fans a good showing with 13 kills, several digs and some big-time serves as the Cyclones and Illini each won two sets. Iowa State claimed the first and third sets 25-22, 25-19 while the Illini won the second and fourth sets, 28-26, 25-21, respectively.

But Herbst said the best part was just playing in front of family and friends again, which included a near-capacity crowd in the Bulldogs\u2019 gym.

\u201cIt was really great, just a lot of good memories,\u201d Herbst said. \u201cIt was actually really weird because I forgot how big the gym was. I am used to Hilton (Coliseum), but I don\u2019t remember it being this big. There is just so many memories of my high school team, friends. \u2026 It was just a really good feeling to be playing here again.\u201d

The match at Bettendorf was organized through the head coaches of both Iowa State and Illinois and Bettendorf coach Diane Lichtenberg. Lichtenberg also played at Iowa State. Herbst said once the match was announced she couldn\u2019t wait for the chance to play close to home again.

\u201cI was really excited when I talked to Diane about it,\u201d she said. \u201cI knew it was going to be a lot of fun.\u201d

Lichtenberg, unfortunately, did not get a chance to see the match as she had a commitment to an out-of-state event. Bettendorf assistant coach Mike Grannen helped run things in her place.

Iowa State coach Christy Johnson-Lynch said playing at Bettendorf was a good opportunity to showcase the sport with two programs that are a regular part of the NCAA tournament.

The Cyclones have spent many springs playing across the state of Iowa. Plus, Johnson-Lynch said Bettendorf also made sense since it is roughly the same distance between Ames and Champaign.

\u201cWe love playing around the state because these fans don\u2019t get to see this kind of volleyball,\u201d she said. \u201cTwo Division I schools don\u2019t come here very often so it was a great opportunity. We love getting out and promoting our sport.\u201d

As for Herbst, Johnson-Lynch said this fall could be a breakout year for the outside hitter. Herbst actually started her career at UNLV but transferred to Iowa State in 2017. Johnson-Lynch said the Cyclones initially did not recruit Herbst heavily because she committed fairly early to UNLV.

But once the chance arrived to bring Herbst into the program, Iowa State did not hesitate. Herbst said her decision to transfer was simply based on being closer to home.

\u201cWe just remembered Josie being a great athlete and hard worker so we said let\u2019s see if this could work out,\u201d Johnson-Lynch said. \u201cJosie is just super dynamic, she has a big jump and a fast arm and we know with her and (teammate) Jess Schaben, they are both very good outside hitters and both do it in very good but different ways.

\u201cIt\u2019s great to have two different (attacking) looks, and Josie has a lot of different varieties in her shots, and it makes our offense more dynamic. Plus, she is just an awesome athlete who plays all out at 100 percent all the time, which is wonderful.\u201d

Grannen said it was just nice to watch Herbst as a fan for once instead of being a coach.

\u201cToo see her as a spectator instead of a coach is a completely different experience,\u201d he said. \u201cI was happy to enjoy watching her play instead of critiquing how she played.\u201d

IOWA CITY \u2014 It\u2019s frequently said that the most popular player on a football team is the backup quarterback.

It\u2019s very much a what-have-you-done-for-me-lately position. One or two bad plays by the starter and everyone is calling for the No. 2 guy.

So even though Iowa fans are very happy to have an established veteran quarterback returning in Nate Stanley, a fair share of them undoubtedly turned out Friday night hoping to be impressed by the two promising freshmen directly below him on the depth chart.

What they saw probably didn\u2019t send them into the night gushing about the kids. But it was at least a little bit encouraging.

Peyton Mansell and Spencer Petras both showed little slivers of potential in the Hawkeyes\u2019 spring game.

Iowa was supposed to just have an ordinary practice, but it ended up staging more of a scrimmage. The estimated crowd of 9,300 even stood at the end of the first quarter and waved to the kids at the Stead Children\u2019s Hospital across the street, just as they do for regular games.

Stanley played that entire first segment, throwing the only two interceptions of the night, before giving way to Mansell, Petras and junior walk-on Ryan Schmidt.

First impression: The two youngsters are very different types of players.

Mansell, who first arrived on campus from Belton, Texas, last fall and currently is listed as the No. 2 quarterback, is 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, but seems smaller. However, he's very nimble afoot. He darts around in the pocket in a style somewhat reminiscent of Drew Tate and may be the most elusive QB the Hawkeyes have had since Tate.

He also appears to be very accurate on short and medium range passes. He rifled a nice completion to Dominique Dafney on a slant, hit tight end Drew Cook for another first down and scrambled for about a 15-yard gain up the middle.

He also badly overthrew freshman Nico Ragaini for what could have been an easy touchdown. Then again, Ragaini might have run the wrong route. It was hard to tell.

Quarterbacks coach Ken O\u2019Keefe was raving last week about how much Mansell has progressed in terms of footwork and his grasp of the offense, and head coach Kirk Ferentz reiterated that Friday.

\"He really was struggling in August. I mean really struggling \u2026\" Ferentz said. \"But he\u2019s really progressed so I think he\u2019s a lot closer to being able to go into a game than he was then.\"

Petras, who just enrolled at Iowa for the second semester, is 6-5, 227, but looks bigger. He seemed to tower over his linemen when he first stepped into the huddle Friday.

If Mansell resembles Drew Tate, Petras looks more like Dan McGwire, another tall Californian who came to Iowa with glowing credentials in the 1980s but never quite fulfilled them.

Petras\u2019 high school numbers are no less luminous than McGwire's were. He passed for 4,157 yards and 50 touchdowns with only two interceptions last fall at Marin Catholic High School in San Rafael, California, and his high school coach said he had the strongest arm of any player he has coached. That includes Jared Goff, who was the first player selected in the 2016 NFL draft and who now is the starting QB of the Los Angeles Rams.

Petras, who won\u2019t turn 19 until late next season, broke most of Goff\u2019s records at Marin, and while he\u2019s still feeling his way in the Hawkeyes\u2019 offense, he was anything but awful Friday.

He had a few completions, had a perfect pass over the middle that was dropped by a receiver and nearly connected with a well-defended Ragaini on a deep pass down the sideline.

\"Spencer has really surprised us a little bit,\" Ferentz said. \"He\u2019s caught on to things a little quicker than you might imagine. We\u2019ll see what happens but those guys have both done some good things.\"

Among those who came away impressed was Stanley, who passed for 2,432 yards and 26 touchdowns in an up-and-down sophomore season and is expected to build on that this fall. With Tyler Wiegers and Ryan Boyle transferring, he is the only quarterback on the roster who has anything close to game experience.

If Mansell or Petras had to go into a tough game right now, it would be an adventure. But Stanley said that will change with time.

\"Obviously, it\u2019s tough to come in mid-semester and get thrown into the fire a little bit,\" Stanley said of Petras. \"But Spencer is a great kid, and he continues to get more and more comfortable every single day, and the same with Peyton. He\u2019s obviously going from the scout team in the fall to practicing on offense every single day, and he continues to build confidence and continues to be more comfortable.\"

No one was injured, police said, but one of the buildings was struck by a bullet that had gone through the window of a utility room.

Moline Police Sgt. Aron Burns said officers responded to the apartment buildings located at 4503 12th Avenue and 4519 12th Avenue.

Police received the call at 6:36 p.m.

Officers found that a bullet had pierced the window of a utility room on the west side of the apartment building at 4519 12th Avenue.

Officers searched the area, including the wooded areas behind the buildings, for the alleged shooters.

The Silvis Police Department\u2019s K9 unit helped in searching the woods and areas around the buildings.

Officers also interviewed witnesses at the scene and later had some of the witnesses at the police station for further interviews.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Moline Police Department at 309-797-0401 or Crime Stoppers of the Quad-Cities at 309-762-9500.\u00a0

United Township senior Logan Francis usually runs a leg of the 4x100 relay for the Panthers. On Friday night at the Rock Island Invitational, he did not; however, he probably felt like he had done so several times over.

Francis started his track and field day at 4:15 p.m. with warmups in the pole vault, an event he won with a height of 13 feet. A half hour later, he went across the 100 yards of the Almquist Field turf to the long jump pit, where he placed third. Then it was back and forth from the pole vault and high jump, ending his night at 8:45 p.m. with a victory leap of 6 feet, 6 inches.

\u201cI was focused, but it was a pain,\u201d he said of covering at least eight 100s to get from event to event.

Francis\u2019 double gold, along with state-qualifying-distance wins by Xavier Wickersham in the shot put (personal best 56-1/2) and discus (156-10), helped UT place fourth in the 13-team field. Moline was fifth, Rock Island sixth and Geneseo seventh.

Francis says he knows of no other local athlete who combines the events that he does, especially at an elite level. His 6-6 in the high jump was a personal best and state-qualifying height. His pole vault is six inches short of state height. His long jump is 13 inches off, but it is just his first year in that event.

Of all of his success, Francis says the pole vault excites him the most.

\u201cIt\u2019s the thrill of going high,\u201d he said. \u201cThat along with all of the technical aspects; it takes so much to get a good jump.\u201d

Two others with multiple golds on the night were Rock Island\u2019s Courtney Lindsey \u2014 with a triple crown of sprints, winning the 100, 200 and 400 \u2014 and Geneseo\u2019s Reed Vanderheyden, with a sweep of the hurdles, the 110 and the 300.

Lindsey was at his fastest. His 100 time of 10.57 was just .04 off the invite record, set in 2008 by Rocky\u2019s Richard Lewis. His 200 time of 21.63 was just .13 off the invite record, set 29 years ago by Rocky\u2019s Tim Newsone.

The 400? He hadn\u2019t run that since his sophomore year, yet he ran down Geneseo\u2019s Nick Swartzendruber, a seventh-place state finisher in 2A a year ago, edging him at the finish despite being behind by 10 yards on the curve before the home stretch.

\u201cI wanted to kick it in with 150 to go,\u201d Lindsey said, \u201cbut it turned out to be with just 50 left.

\u201cI came in wanting the invitational\u2019s records in the 100 and 200, but I just missed both.\u201d

All three of Lindsey\u2019s dashes were state qualifying times, with his 100 and 200 being medal-worthy times.

Moline picked up gold medals in the 800 relay, with the team of Marcelius Williamson, Jabari Rogers, Fred Henderson and Boubacar Barry putting up a time of 1:32.39.

Alleman\u2019s Spencer Smith, usually a staple in the winner\u2019s circle in the 1600 and 3200, just ran a leg of the Pioneers\u2019 4x800, which placed fourth. That is because today he will be participating in elite races at the Distance Night at Palatine.

Ben Pennington sensed his team was in for a battle Friday night.

As Bettendorf prepared to host Davenport Central, the Bulldogs head coach saw a confident Blue Devil team coming off a big win over Pleasant Valley on Tuesday night.

\u201cWe knew we were in for a game,\u201d Pennington said. \u201cCentral was going to make some noise tonight. When they showed up, you could just tell. They just defeated PV, which they hadn\u2019t done in a long time, and we were next on the list.\u201d

Bettendorf made sure not to become the next victim, opening up a three-goal lead by halftime and hanging onto a 6-3 win over the Blue Devils at TouVelle Stadium, Bettendorf's 22nd straight MAC win.

The Bulldogs jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first 15 minutes on a pair of goals from Blake Rollinger. Rollinger took a pair of through balls from Joey Parker and blew past the Central defense for open looks at the net.

\u201cIt\u2019s the mentality we\u2019ve had. The majority of this senior group has played together since seventh grade and that\u2019s how we\u2019ve always started games. We\u2019ve always punched teams in the mouth early and see how they respond,\u201d Parker said. \u201cWe knew that with how they played against PV, they\u2019re a very quality side, and everyone knew coming into this game, I\u2019d say this was the most focused we\u2019ve been.\u201d

Central keeper Ben Krogman made a big stop on a penalty kick shortly after, but Parker helped put the Bulldogs up 3-0 when his free kick went off a Central player for an own goal in the 20th minute.

\u201cWe are very young in a lot of key spots, and it shows against a team like that,\u201d Central coach Sean Harkness said. \u201cThey\u2019ve got experienced guys that can make us pay for small mistakes. They\u2019re very good at keying in on our weak spots, and they took advantage of it.\u201d

Though the Bulldogs (6-0, 4-0) grabbed the win, the Blue Devils (6-5, 2-2) snapped a pretty impressive streak from the Bulldogs. Bobby Nikolopoulos\u2019 goal in the 26th minute was the first conference goal allowed by the Bulldogs since May 10, 2016, a 14-match conference shutout streak.

Bettendorf took a 4-1 lead into halftime on a goal from Dustin Harris and went up 5-1 in the 50th minute on a goal from George Elias before the Blue Devils attempted a late comeback.

Nikolopoulos scored his second goal of the match in the 70th minute and Diwash Thapa made it 5-3 in the 71st minute.

Harris put the game away with his second goal in the 75th minute.

\"After those two goals, they definitely had momentum, and we had to calm them down a little bit because they were putting pressure on our defense,\" Harris said. \"I think my goal kind of chilled it out, that three-goal deficit with five minutes left is pretty hard to overcome.\"

Though it's a loss, the game is another sign of progress from Davenport Central, one that has Harkness confident his team is doing the right things to be ready come postseason.

\u201cI think scoring six goals in a week against PV and Bettendorf is something to hang your hat on,\u201d Harkness said. \u201cObviously, giving up eight between the two games isn\u2019t ideal but definitely strides in the right direction.\u201d

Hotter and dryer weather is what Quad-City region farmers are hoping for as what is traditionally the first week of planting season has arrived without any seeds going into the fields.

\u201cApril 20 is always our traditional start date and we\u2019ve tucked our planter back in the shed,\u201d New Liberty, Iowa, farmer Bryan Sievers said Friday.

Cold weather along with doses of rain, sleet and snow during what is supposed to be the first few weeks of spring have kept farmers out of their fields and, critical to planting, has kept soil temperatures well below the levels it will take for seeds to germinate.

\u201cA week ago, soil temperatures here were in the middle 30s, and that represented some of the coldest temps in well over 20 or 30 years,\u201d Sievers said.

Soil temperatures need to be at a steady and consistent 50 degrees or above for seeds to germinate, he said. Sievers said it is the first several inches, that first two to four inches, are what farmers are most concerned about.

According to the soil temperature map of Iowa State University\u2019s Iowa Environmental Mesonet, the temperature of the first four inches of soil in Scott County were at an average of 42 degrees on Thursday. Soil temperatures in the rest of the Quad-City region ranged from 42 in Muscatine County to 41 degrees in Clinton and Jackson counties.

But the cold has not affected just farmers locally, Sievers said.

\u201cIt encompasses the entire Corn Belt,\u201d he said. \u201cThere isn\u2019t anybody planting in the Midwest.

\u201cWe here in east central Iowa and western Illinois have it better than most,\u201d Sievers said. \u201cThere are places in the Midwest west that have 8-10 inches of snow on the ground because it recently fell.\u201d

Sievers said that with the warm weather over the weekend he was hoping to be back in his fields this weekend.

\u201cWe\u2019ve got a week\u2019s worth of more fertilizer to put on and we\u2019ll do our strip tilling,\u201d he said.

Iowa State University Extension agronomist Virgil Schmitt said historically, corn needed to be planted no later than May 5-10, as yields would drop off after that date.

\u201cSome recent data suggests that yields don\u2019t drop off as sharply with the genetics of today\u2019s seeds,\u201d Schmitt said.

In more specific terms, he said, the yield penalty for pollinating later in the season has improved with the hybrids.

\u201cWith the hybrids we don\u2019t necessarily need to be in as much of a hurry and we don\u2019t need to worry about switching hybrids,\u201d he added.

\u201cBut the genetics didn\u2019t change the temperature setting,\u201d Schmitt said. \u201cThe soil needs to be at 50 degrees or higher with the likelihood that it will stay there and not drop below that again for the seeds to germinate.

\u201cSeeds planted in poor soil conditions can haunt us for the rest of the season,\u201d he said.

Sievers said he planted some corn in June last year, \u201cand that yielded really, really well.\u201d

But a lot had to do with the excellent conditions during the second half of the growing season, he added.

Regardless of the seeds, though, the soil temperatures still have to be warm enough for the seed to grow.

According to data kept by the National Weather Service, Davenport, through April 19 the average temperature for May in the Quad-Cities has been 36.9 degrees, with high temperatures averaging 45.7 degrees and overnight lows averaging 28.1.

The average temperature for the month of April locally is 12.5 degrees cooler than normal.

National Weather Service's Dave Cousins said that so far, April 2018 has been the second coldest on record.

\u201cIf the month were to come to an end now, this April would be the second coldest on record,\u201d he said.

The coldest April on record was back in 1881 when the average temperature for the month was 36.3 degrees. The third coldest was in 1926 when the average temperature was 38.9 degrees.

Sievers said to get back on track the weather needs to cooperate and it needs to warm up significantly.

High temperatures in the middle 60s are nice, but the National Weather Service is forecasting that rain is expected Tuesday night through Thursday with highs only in the upper 50s and overnight lows dipping the upper 30s to lower 40s.

\u201cThat\u2019s not what\u2019s needed to get the soil temperatures where they need to be,\u201d Sievers said.

While farmers may be itching to get into the fields now, Sievers said it\u2019s not too late. \u201cBut in seven to 10 days, if it doesn\u2019t really warm up, there will be a lot more farmers moving from being itchy to being very nervous,\u201d he said.

The personal and health information of approximately 16,000 patients were potentially compromised by a cybersecurity attack on UnityPoint Health, according to a public notice released this week.

On Feb. 15, UnityPoint Health discovered a phishing attack had compromised the organization\u2019s email system, according to the notice sent earlier this week.

The affected email accounts may have been accessed sometime between Nov. 1, 2017, and Feb. 7 of this year.

It was later determined that the email accounts contained patient information that included patients\u2019 names, dates of birth, medical record numbers, treatment information, surgical information, diagnoses, lab results, medications, providers, dates of service and insurance information.

Social Security numbers and other financial information may have been viewed for a limited number of affected individuals, the notice stated.

As of Friday, officials were not aware of any inappropriate access to the electronic medical record system, UnityPoint Health Spokeswoman Teresa Thoensen said.

Impacted individuals were sent a written notification of the breach starting Monday.

According to the public notice, UnityPoint Health took immediate action to secure those email accounts when the breach was discovered.

\u201cWe are working with outside cybersecurity experts to learn from the incident and help our system \u2014 and other health systems \u2014 prevent the kinds of cybercrimes that affect health care and other sectors every day,\u201d Thoensen said.

UnityPoint Health officials are encouraging affected officials to carefully review account statements for fraudulent or irregular activity.

Individuals can contact UnityPoint Health to learn if their emails were affected by calling 855-331-3612 any time between 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday.

UnityPoint Health has locations in Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin.

The Forest City students stood quietly in front of the high school/middle school building during the walkout.

\"I think it's a good thing to show that we recognize this is a problem, and it's nice to show that we care about those who have passed away,\" said sophomore Sophia Kudej, one of the walkout participants at Forest City on Friday.

Freshman Max Blaze said he walked out because of all of those who have died in school shootings.

\"They got shot for no reason,\" he said.

Forest City school officials say the walkout was student-led and not sponsored by the school.

\"The students were very respectful,\" said Middle School Principal Zach Dillavou.

Long before last weekend's last-second, game-winning touchdown reception, Quad-City Steamwheelers coach Cory Ross knew Quinton Pedroza was a great catch.

After all, the just-turned 25-year-old possesses the kind of size (6-foot-3, 220 pounds) and speed (4.57-second 40-yard dash) that caught the attention of NFL scouts in college and once even earned mention from ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper Jr.

However, after having a steady stream of career curveballs thrown his way, Pedroza arrived at the TaxSlayer Center in late February believing the local indoor football team might be his last chance professionally.

\"I joke that I'd make a great 30-for-30,\" documentary film, Pedroza said ahead of tonight's home game with Sioux City.

Pedroza pulled into town with quarterback E.J. Hilliard a week after Q-C opened training camp.

Pedroza had just been released, and Hilliard faced an uncertain future, 90 minutes away in Cedar Rapids of the rival Indoor Football League.

\"I'd cut my hand and had 12 stitches, so I couldn't participate in camp,\" with the Titans, Pedroza said. \"But I was healthy and ready to play when they cut me.\"

The pair heard about the Champions Indoor Football revival of the Wheelers, after a nine-year absence from another Cedar Rapids castoff who was in camp with Q-C.

\"I'd thought last summer my football journey might be over,\" said Pedroza, who played sparingly as a rookie and fourth receiver last spring with the IFL's Iowa Barnstormers.

Pedroza had the same feeling late in 2016 after the Arena Football League's L.A. Kiss folded beneath him after only two weeks on the team's practice squad.

The California native only turned indoors when no NFL or CFL teams opted to take a chance on a free agent receiver who'd suffered a knee injury as a college senior in 2015.

Pedroza led Hawaii in receptions (59) as a junior, and added 23 more grabs in the first four games as a senior before the injury, including a whopping 10 catches for 134 yards against nationally ranked Wisconsin.

\"I rehabbed and got healthy enough to work out at the pro day,\" Pedroza said, \"but I wasn't fully healed, and I know that turned teams off.\"

Pedroza also did himself no favors in his first Division I college stop at Utah.

\"I made a foolish mistake when I was 18-19,\" said Q-C's leader in receiving yards (183) and TD receptions (5).

\"I got a drinking ticket out there, and they're a no-tolerance school, so I got released from the team. I was young and still learning, which is no excuse. I just learned a real hard lesson.

\"It's part of my story and makes me who I am today. I think about it all of the time; it motivates me to keep my eye on the prize and just work every day.\"

Three of Pedroza's five housemates from his two-year stay in Utah are in the NFL now \u2014 Miami offensive guard Isaac Asiata, Jacksonville defensive end Hunter Dimick and Carolina linebacker Jared Norris.

\"I feel like the odd-man out,\" said the CIF's leader at 14.1 yards-per-catch.

\"It's motivating. All of us talk about every other day on a group message. We all have a strong bond. They see my clips from here, and they keep encouraging me. But it just kills me not to be up there with them.\"

Pedroza hopes the latest clip helps him climb the sport's ladder, though.

\"I know it's out there, but it hasn't gone viral yet,\" Pedroza said about last weekend's highlight. \"But if the right people see it, I'll be happy.

\"My career is full of setbacks, but it feels like I'm finally in the right place, and it's the perfect time for me, with things really falling into place.\"

WATERLOO \u2014Hundreds of students walked out of West High School in Waterloo, Iowa, Friday for nearly half an hour to protest against gun violence.

Participating students at West faced an unexcused absence for leaving class, but some said it was important to raise awareness about the toll of gun violence at schools.

Junior Ajla Sivic said she walked out \u201cto get the 17 lives that were lost (in Parkland, Florida) the 17 minutes they deserve, to show that we care.\u201d

\u201cNo longer is it shocking to see school shootings,\u201d said Parker McNally, a senior. While people advocate for reform of gun laws following each shooting, McNally noted those efforts fade away after a few weeks.

\u201cWe have yet to make a difference, a palpable difference, since Columbine,\u201d he said. \u201cThe time is now. Today we march out of school without regard for the punishment we may face.\u201d

McNally urged the students to become active voters once they turn 18, suggesting this issue is about \u201cour own survival.\u201d He added, \u201cWe deserve an education more than they deserve to own weapons.\u201d

Sophomore Edina Kuduzovic said politicians are still accepting a \u201cpocket full of checks\u201d from the National Rifle Association, which advocates for gun owners\u2019 rights. \u201cBut as the youth of America, we have to let them know that we are not backing down.\u201d

She and other speakers called for improving background checks for gun purchasers, banning bump stocks and large ammunition magazines for semi-automatic rifles, and requiring extensive gun training for anyone who owns a weapon.

\u201cIt is time for us to open our eyes that gun violence has gotten out of control,\u201d said sophomore Maya VanErem. \u201cWhen will people realize that guns are becoming an issue?

\u201cI push every single person to try and make a difference in our world. I encourage each of you to demand action from our politicians.\u201d

After the rally, freshman Allyssa Norman said times have changed since her parents and other adults were kids.

\u201cEven something that happened in Florida is affecting us today,\u201d she said. \u201cWe need to stop it.\u201d

Glenview Middle students Adreian Roper, 14, Damahz Slater, 14, and Jeremie Bond, 13, bow their during a moment of silence in honor of those killed in the Columbine shooting. The students who chose to participate, held a walk out against gun violence and commemorate the shooting at Columbine High School 19-years ago. The Quad Cities Big Table initiative brought people together for conversation about the future of the Quad-Cities Area.

EAST MOLINE \u2014 Glenview Middle School eighth-graders found a way Friday to get their voices heard by community leaders.

Students shared gun-violence concerns with five members of a community panel before observing a 13-second silence in memory of a 1999 shooting at Columbine (Colorado) High School and a 17-minute walk around the school in memory of victims of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting two months ago.

Students questioned Brandon Kutmas of the Robert Young Center, Kristin Terrell-Tylor of East Moline schools, the Rev. Scott Culley of the Faith Walk Outreach Center, East Moline school board member Kai Killam, and school police liaison officer Kirk DeGreve.

\"They gave voice to their concerns that was valuable socially and psychologically,\" Kutmas said of the students.

Questions ranged from metal detectors to what would happen if people with guns entered the school.

\"The fact that it was student-generated and student-led speaks to the empowerment they feel, while knowing that their school and community cares for what they say they need,\" said Terrell-Taylor.

\"This was a big form of the Big Table conversation we know was weighing heavily on the minds of our students,\" Terrell-Taylor said.

When students Riley Verstraete and Leslie Moreno wrote school administrators about plans to participate in a national walk-out, \"we knew we wanted to get in front of it,\" said Glenview counselor Gaye Dunn.

So the school developed \"17 Ways to Care\" in memory of the Parkland deaths and added it to the Big Table agenda.

\"It was all about making the lives of all students count, because enough is enough,\" said Moreno. \"It takes that one student to say they will.\"

DES MOINES \u2014 In Des Moines, several hundred high-school students, adults and others gathered on the west steps of the Iowa Capitol building to waive placards, chant slogans, share songs and hear speeches promoting safety in Iowa schools in the wake of violent attacks like the one at Columbine High School in Colorado in 1999.

Chants of \"no more silence, end gun violence\" rang across the Capitol complex and signs declaring: \"No more thoughts & prayers,\" \"Done being Iowa nice,\" and \"Am I Next?\" dotted the throng of area students who walked out of class Friday to deliver their messages to Iowa's policy-makers.

The Iowa Legislature was not in session Friday and only a handful of legislators were at the Capitol. One of them was Senate Democratic Leader Janet Petersen of Des Moines who said the day belonged to the students and she was there to listen.

\"I'm excited to see kids speaking up. I think it's an important time in our country as kids are getting more civically engaged so it's exciting to see,\" Petersen said. \"I think all Iowans want to make sure that our kids are safe in their schools and so it's time for us to listen to what our kids have to say.\"

Gov. Kim Reynolds said she shared concerns about school safety and was pleased lawmakers this session approved legislation requiring all public and private schools to have high-quality safety plans in place and to conduct practice drills once a year to prepare for active shooter and disaster situations.

\"There's no one single answer to this. We need to look it from a holistic perspective and that's mental health, that's background checks - making sure that they're effecti ve - making sure that we're communicating,\" she told reporters Thursday. \"It's really about implementing the laws that are on the books. If you take a look at what happened in Florida, it failed at every single level so even with existing laws on the books it didn't stop that from happening.\"

The governor said that when she talks with young people, she asks them what they're doing at their schools to make sure there aren't young people who are being left out of activities and to encourage an inclusive environment.

\"I mean there are a lot of things that we need to do to make sure that our kids are safe,\" Reynolds said. \"My daughter's a teacher, I want to make sure that she has the opportunity to teach in a safe environment as well.\"

Senate President Charles Schneider, R-West Des Moines, said he believed the new school-safety requirements passed this year will help along with more flexibility the Legislature gave K-12 school district to use up to $35 million in grant money to make safety improvements in they so choose.

\"This is always something that we have to be looking at and we always have to take into consideration the balance of school safety and constitutional rights as well,\" Schneider said.

Sheri Curran, Augustana College legal counsel and cabinet member; Kris Kizer, Augustana College senior; Angie Sharp, WQAD anchor; and Liesl Fowler, Augustana College registrar pose for a group photo with their fellow Big Table participants at Augustana College Friday.

Among the 50 participants at the Big Table at Augustana College in Rock Island were Augustana President Steve Bahls and U.S. Rep Cheri Bustos, D-Moline.

Key discussions included what people can people do to make the college and the community better, and what Augustana and the community can do to keep students in the region.

\"It starts in the classroom by encouraging students to feel comfortable enough to use your voice for others in the community,\" said Sierra Scanlan, of Romeoville, an upperclassmen and cross country runner at the school.

Some students don't venture off campus, she said. She expressed how much she likes the Quad-Cities music scene, echoing another participant's comment\u00a0about how much the area\u2019s art and music scene has improved in 20 years.

That scene will continue to grow and provide local musicians opportunities, said Jay Pearce of WVIK and River Music Experience.

Scanlan said there needs to be more dialogue and more students need to immerse themselves in the community.

\"Forcing yourself out of your comfort zone, students will see that there's more out there,\" she said. \"I really enjoy the community. I enjoy everyone I've interacted with.\"

Fernando Rios, of Augie's information technology department, said the day's discussion was great. \"We found a lot of things we agree on and things we need to improve on to get the Quad-Cities to grow,\" he said.

Among them, he said, are encouraging more minority businesses and convincing minority students that private colleges are for them, too. They need to be invited to the campus, he said.

\"QUAD-CITIES

Community members gathered at the River Bend Foodbank, Davenport, to discuss hunger and ideas to stop throwing food away

The statistics were eye-opening: 1 in 8 people in the Quad-Cities do not have enough food, 1 in 5 children.\u00a0

So nine Quad-Citians from various walks of life gathered at a Big Table Friday to explore ways for the community to combat hunger, including raising public awareness, increasing food donations and helping others see the problem is real and here.\u00a0

\"Hunger is a solvable problem. There is enough food to feed everyone if we just stop throwing it away,\" said Michael Miller, president and CEO of the River Bend Foodbank, Davenport, which hosted the discussion.\u00a0

\"I deal with kids who are hungry,\" said Susie Vens, a teacher at Davenport's Monroe Elementary School. \"But most people who are affluent do not realize that is a problem.\"\u00a0

She is saddened to see all the food wasted at school by the kids and because of federal regulations that require the lunch staff to throw away food that has been served, even unopened packages.\u00a0

It is an issue that is being addressed with the Iowa Board of Education, Lea Hensel of the Iowa Waste Reduction Center said.\u00a0

The group discussed several ideas for new partnerships with the area grocery stores, restaurants and others to donate food.

Pastor Karen Ullenstead of Zion Lutheran Church, Davenport, suggested area stores or churches could offer collection boxes for ongoing donations of non-perishable food.\u00a0

Jared Rafferty, who manages the HyVee store on Moline's Avenue of the Cities, said consumers need to understand the expiration dates on food. \"People don't understand 'use by' date, 'best by' and 'eat by,'\" he said suggesting an education campaign.\u00a0

Miller said the foodbank is talking to a major manufacturer about replacing the \"best sold by\" date with a \"donate by\" stamp on food items.\u00a0

\"Your BOGO (buy one, get one) sales\u00a0\u2014 I like to think of those as buy one, give one,\" Miller told Rafferty.\u00a0

QCAIR, Quad-Cities Alliance for Immigrants & Refugees, hosted a Big Table at The Center, Davenport. From left, participants included: Michelle Yates, Jenny Garlach, Rebecca David and Tami Petsche.

It didn't take long to warm up.

The group of 11 who filled out the Big Table at The Center near 14th and Brady streets shared a thread from the start. Most, if not all, were drawn to the Quad-Cities Alliance for Immigrants & Refugees' discussion, because they care about making people feel welcome.

The one question that took most of the hour was this: Is the Quad-Cities welcoming?

\u2022 Kim Brown said, \"It depends on who you see.\" Some simply aren't comfortable among strangers.

\u2022 Jane I. Duax said the Quad-Cities is \"overall welcoming,\" adding, \"the haters are in the minority.\" The presence of yard signs, welcoming all people, are evidence.

\u2022 Terry Loughrin grew up on a farm, moved to a Chicago suburb, then the Quad-Cities. He has experienced \"guardedness,\" and Quad-Cities often interact only when it serves a purpose.

\u2022 Jillian McCleary said the Quad-Cities has many multi-generational families, making it difficult for newcomers.

\u2022 Tami Petsche: \"It's hard to say. As a white female, it's easier for me. Not everyone has the same opportunities as I do (to interact).\"

\u2022 Jenny Garlach said, \"I think it's getting better. Overall, it's more positive here than negative.\"

\u2022 Michelle Yates, a physician, said friends who aren't doctors are treated differently. Coming from Chicago, she was surprised when a neighbor delivered treats. More long-time locals should welcome newcomers, because, \"A plate of brownies goes a long way.\"

\u2022 Elizabeth Dougherty moved here in late 2015. \"I'm made to feel like an outsider every day,\" she said. The only place she feels welcome is at her job. Some were surprised by her disclosure. To try to assimilate, she said, she is involved in dog rescue and the farmer's market.

\u2022 Grant Curtis, president of QCAIR, said, in his experience, Quad-Citians are \"inclusive, yet stand-offish.\"

\"Table\"

The Big Table at Donuts & More on Brady Street in Davenport focused on positivity.

Maybe it was the cherry-glazed doughnut holes or the hazelnut coffee up for grabs or maybe it was the \"Donut worry, be happy\" sign outside Donuts & More on Brady Street in Davenport.\u00a0

Talk around this table, occupied by a Moline police offer, a TV news anchor, a college student, a couple who just bought their first house and a local comedian, among others, turned out to be nothing but positive.\u00a0

The dozen or so Quad-Citians who gathered for an hour-long conversation said they were proud of being \"Quad-Citizens.\"\u00a0

And they want more of that to go around.\u00a0

\"This can kind of go wherever we want it to,\" said Rachel Thomas, an area Realtor and table discussion host, before opening with this question: \"What would you like to see more of in the Quad-Cities?\"\u00a0

The answers? More community involvement and awareness of the good that's happening here.\u00a0

Andrew King, an area stand-up comedian who works at Donuts & More, said he moved back to the Quad-Cities several years ago because \"it was growing so much.\"\u00a0

When Ashton Barker worked in downtown Davenport about 10 years ago, she called the area \"a ghost town.\"\u00a0

\"It's not like that at all anymore,\" she said. \"I think there's a lot here that people take for granted.\"

The group came up a few ideas: Starting a community-wide pay-it-forward movement, getting area college students more involved in community happenings and sharing more \"good news\" with the local media.\u00a0

For the final 20 or so minutes of the talk, one topic dominated conversation: \"What's next for the Quad-Cities Big Table?\"\u00a0

Hopefully, Barker said, more discussions are scheduled.\u00a0

\"When I first heard about this, I thought, 'Well I'm not anybody important in the Quad-Cities. I'm not going to go to that, because nobody cares what I have to say,\" Barker said. \"But then, learning about it, if this would happen again in two months, I think it would be times 10 bigger and you would see even more people coming out.\"\u00a0

As Thomas said, \"This is a good start.\"\u00a0

DES MOINES\u00a0\u2014 Iowa\u2019s most powerful state and federal government leaders have an ally in the White House thanks to political unity forged in the 2016 elections.

There is a Republican in the White House and a GOP-led Congress to team with Iowa Republicans in both of the state\u2019s U.S. Senate seats and the governor\u2019s office, as well as its own GOP-led state legislature.

That Republican symmetry has helped produce significant conservative reforms on the federal and state levels.

But while President Donald Trump\u2019s administration completed Republicans\u2019 power trifecta in the nation\u2019s capital, it also has, on occasion, put Iowa leaders on the defensive against their own party.

Trump administration moves, for example, to weaken the federal mandate for ethanol in the nation\u2019s fuel supply and on international trade have caused concerns in Iowa. That has prompted the state\u2019s Republican leaders\u00a0\u2014 in particular Gov. Kim Reynolds and U.S. Sens. Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst\u00a0\u2014 to oppose the president, who also just happens to be their party\u2019s leader.

And there\u2019s always having to face questions about said party leader\u2019s occasional verbal or social media outbursts that spark outrage and consternation across the country.

For Iowa\u2019s Republican leaders, it has all made for an eventful year-plus under this administration.

\u201cIt has been quite a year,\u201d Ernst said. \u201cI\u2019ve actually been pleased with a number of the policies that we\u2019ve seen.\u201d

When asked about working with Trump and his administration, Ernst and Grassley were quick to point to what they consider significant achievements, including the placement of a conservative justice to the U.S. Supreme Court, federal tax cuts, reduced regulations on businesses and farmers, and boosted national defense spending.

\u201cThere have been a lot of wins,\u201d Ernst said.

But there also have been battles that Iowa Republicans may not have thought they would have to fight given their party\u2019s control of the federal government.

Iowa Republicans have spent the majority of the Trump administration\u2019s tenure working to preserve the Renewable Fuel Standard, a federal requirement for a certain level of ethanol in the nation\u2019s fuel supply. The corn-based fuel is important to the state\u2019s economy, so when the Trump administration considered reducing the required levels, Iowa Republicans were put in a position to push back against their party\u2019s leader.

They did: Grassley, Ernst and Reynolds all made multiple public statements and private pleas to Trump to preserve the ethanol mandate. Eventually, the Trump administration relented and the mandate remained intact.

However, Iowa Republicans find themselves fighting a second round in the same bout; the administration has granted waivers to some oil refineries that allow them to skirt the ethanol mandate. That has Iowa leaders concerned all over again, and once more raising their concerns about the potential impact to Iowa\u2019s agriculture economy.

The state\u2019s ag economy also is in jeopardy because of another Trump administration move: to announce new taxes on trade deals with China. Trump said the proposed tariffs are needed to balance some international trade deals and hold China accountable for years of alleged intellectual property theft. China in retaliation has proposed tariffs on soybeans, one of Iowa\u2019s top crops.

Once again, Grassley, Ernst and Reynolds have pleaded with Trump to reconsider an action that, in the case of this budding trade war could be devastating to Iowa farmers.

In both cases, the trio showed a willingness to speak out against the president\u2019s policies in order to defend the interests of their state. Whether that has been sufficient is a matter of debate.

\u201cThis is all about policy. You agree sometimes, sometimes you disagree,\u201d Grassley said.

Ernst said she is willing to note her occasional disagreements with Trump\u2019s policies, and said she has found the president to be a willing listener.

\u201cEven on the issues where I may disagree with the president, I am blessed to have such a relationship with him that I can disagree and do it in a respectful manner. And you know what? He will actually listen to some of those issues and visit with me about them, and I\u2019ve had quite an open ear from the president,\u201d Ernst said. \u201cI am glad that he takes my thoughts and he takes my feedback, he works through those and hopefully we come out with a good product at the end.\u201d

These Iowa Republicans are not navigating uncharted waters. It is not necessarily unusual for a political leader to have to take a stance against a president of his or her own party, said Timothy Hagle, a political science professor at the University of Iowa.

\u201cThat\u2019s not entirely unusual,\u201d Hagle said. \u201cThe question is how you handle that.\u201d

Hagle noted while some Republicans have been publicly and highly critical of Trump, Grassley, Ernst and Reynolds have taken stances against those Trump policies they felt would hurt Iowa but did so in a more low-key and respectful manner. Hagle said that may have been more productive because when other politicians have lashed out at Trump, the president often has responded in kind.

Jeff Kaufmann, the chairman of the Republican Party of Iowa, said he thinks Iowa\u2019s Republican leaders have found the ideal recipe for working with and, when they feel necessary, standing up to Trump.

\u201cI think they have struck a perfect balance. Even when it means they have to disagree with the president, sometimes vigorously and publicly. I actually think he respects that,\u201d Kaufmann said. \u201cI believe (Trump) knows that it\u2019s not personal. I think the balance and the nature of the relationship is perfect.

\u201cOne thing is for sure: all three of those leaders have proven Iowa comes before party. They have definitely not hesitated to publicly call out the president, even when it\u2019s the president of their own party.\u201d

Troy Price, the chairman of the Iowa Democratic Party, said he thinks those Iowa Republican leaders have given mere lip service to standing up for the state in the aforementioned instances. Price said Grassley, Ernst and Reynolds\u2019 actions have amounted to little more than \u201cempty rhetoric\u201d in news releases.

Price said despite the Iowa GOP\u2019s efforts, the ethanol mandate remains under attack and the threats of trade tariffs already are causing fluctuations in the agricultural markets.

Price also questioned what he said was a lack of concrete plans to counter any potential harmful impacts on Iowa farmers.

\u201cWords are words. Where is the action? What is being done to help shore up rural Iowa right now?\u201d Price said. \u201cThey cozied up to the Trump administration, they\u2019ve heaped praise upon the president, yet what do they have to show for it?\u201d

Democrats and Republicans will disagree on whether the Trump administration has been good for Iowa, and whether Iowa Republicans are putting their state above politics.

As for working with the Trump administration, Grassley said he is comfortable disagreeing with the president on some policies but overall said Trump is following through on his campaign promises.

\u201cI think this president is doing more than any other president, to have a list of things he promised in the campaign,\u201d Grassley said. \u201cA lot of presidents get elected and don\u2019t stand on their promise, and he\u2019s standing on his promise.\u201d

Said Ernst, \u201cIt\u2019s been an interesting dynamic, but I do see a very open administration. So I\u2019ll take those wins and we\u2019ll keep working hard for the Iowa public to make sure that we see additional wins for us in the future.\u201d

Nine Davenport residents gathered during one of the Quad Cities Big Table forums held at the Davenport Downtown Library Friday, April 20, 2018. The events, held at dozens of locations across the Quad-Cities hoped to promote civic conversation, foster new relationships and inspire collaborative action across the region.

Thousands of Quad-City area residents stopped what they normally would have been doing on Friday to gather at a \"big table\" to talk about what they think needs to be improved in the community, and how that might happen.

Dr. Michelle Yates, a Quad-City physician, expressed concern about health care for minorities.

Deshawn Sanders, a sixth grader at Bettendorf Middle School, shared his desire to promote recycling and help the homeless.

A Pleasant Valley High School student talked about the need for equality and his willingness to give up some privileges so others can have more. His high school has iPads in its weight room, for example, while Moline High School doesn't have air-conditioning.

The conversations were part of the Quad-Cities Big Table, a community-wide initiative of the QC2030 Regional Action Plan, a shared vision endorsed by about 240 business, nonprofit, academic, business and community leaders to make the Quad-Cities a cool, creative, connected and prosperous place.

The initiative was modeled after a similar program originating in Columbus, Ohio.

Quad-City leaders set a goal several months ago of getting 500 tables with about 5,000 total participants from various backgrounds, neighborhoods and interest groups, but by Friday morning, they had exceeded that number with 525 tables registered.

\"It's been outstanding,\" Rene Gellerman, Q2030's loaned executive, said Friday afternoon after spending the day dropping in at \"Big Tables\" throughout the area. Particularly inspiring was listening to the concerns of 300 high school students at Deere World Headquarters, she said.

\"People are energized talking about what matters to them and about meeting new people,\" she said. She also picked up a sense among participants that Quad-Citians should, overall, take more pride in the good things the area has to offer.

\"How do we help one another have more swagger about living in the Quad-Cities?\" she said.

About half the tables convened on Friday, with the remainder meeting Saturday. Locations ranged from a Davenport union hall and doughnut shop to Grace City Church in Rock Island.

All participants will receive a brief email survey asking them to explain what they talked about, if their group offered any possible solutions to the challenges they discussed and whether they would be willing to do further work.

These surveys will then be analyzed by a third party consultant who will give a report to the Q2030 steering committee, a group of about 65 people, Gellerman said.

The committee will sift through the report to see what issues/possible solutions rise to the top, Gellerman said. Depending on what they find, they might make changes to the Q2030 plan, she said.

The committee will then make a report to the community, probably in July, that will be available online and announced at an event, Gellerman said.

An important goal of the conversations is for people to feel empowered to tackle the problems/challenges they discuss themselves.

\"The goal is not to develop an agenda for others to implement, necessarily, but for people (to see how they) can work together and as individuals themselves. We hope they feel a sense of responsibility to help shape the future of the Quad-Cities.\"

\"Bettendorf

About 100 students from Bettendorf Middle School and Pleasant Valley Junior High School gathered last Friday during a Quad-Cities Big Table event in the cafeteria at Bettendorf Middle School. The students discussed topics including bullying and school safety.

Casual, civil and compelling conversation Friday afternoon in the cafeteria at Bettendorf Middle School briefly interrupted the sometimes-bitter Bettendorf/Pleasant Valley rivalry.

The break lasted about an hour, surprising Bettendorf Middle and Pleasant Valley Junior High students who participated in the engaging discussions inspired by the Quad-Cities Big Table initiative.\u00a0

\"I came here thinking it's going to be Bettendorf kids and PV kids in just a screaming match,\"\u00a0said Ellie Hinch, an eighth-grade Bettendorf Middle student.\u00a0

Spearheaded by Bettendorf Schools Superintendent Mike Raso and Pleasant Valley Schools Superintendent Jim Spelhaug, the moderated chatter involved about 100 students at 10 tables. Exchanges touched on school security, stereotypes, recycling and helping the homeless among other topics.

\"Elias

Elias Lightfoot, a sixth-grade student at Bettendorf Middle School, shares his thoughts about improving school security Friday afternoon during a Quad-Cities Big Table event in his school's cafeteria.

Coinciding with National School Walkout Day on the 19th anniversary of the Columbine shooting, students at one table talked about conducting more safety drills. An adult moderator mentioned the possibility of adding metal detectors to prevent shootings.

\"The sad part about our world is that we have to even talk about this situation,\" said Elias Lightfoot, a sixth-grade Bettendorf Middle student said.\u00a0

Students at another table brainstormed strategies to help protect the environment. The group posed holding community-wide cleanup days once every season.

\"We need to have more recycling bins around here,\" Deshawn Sanders, a sixth-grade Bettendorf Middle student said.\u00a0

Will Fairman, an eighth-grade student at Pleasant Valley Junior High, called for higher recycling payouts.

\"People aren't going to take action unless it benefits them directly,\" he said, impressing Bettendorf Middle Principal Lisa Reid. \"Maybe we go from 5 cents to 10 cents.\"

It began with worries about shootings and troubled youth, kids who come from broken homes and how to help them.

There was talk of mentoring and finding transitional housing, so they don't end up back to where their problems began.

Then, Sue Ketelsen, a Davenport retiree, wondered why people couldn't be kinder to each other.

At Davenport's Fairmount Library, a dozen people, most of whom didn't appear to know each other before they walked into a sunny meeting room, hashed out a variety of issues at their own Big Table.

They included retirees, an executive, a hair dresser, an advocate for victims of domestic violence, among others.

They sought more kindness and a greater sense of community. They talked about the need to recognize the good things that are happening here, and wondered how to resolve the things that are worrisome, like shootings.

\"This community is generous, so overwhelmingly generous,\" said Anne Calder, vice president of development for the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend.

Calder lives in Geneseo, but as she put it, \"I'm a Quad-Citizen. I'm part of this. I own this, too.\"

Bill Churchill, a retired educator and coach from Davenport who led the discussion, stressed the idea wasn't to come up with solutions to problems but start a discussion.

Sandy Liagre, a retired teacher from Davenport, talked about the need to connect.

\"We used to have block parties,\" she said. \"Maybe we need to think about having these big tables in the neighborhoods.\"

There were complaints about people burying their heads in their smartphones and a bit about traffic frustrations. But parks, libraries, charitable groups and free things to do for families and a handful of other Quad-City offerings got praise, too.

From Quad-City history to the current state of the Quad-City region along the Mississippi River, the lively discussion at the Figge Art Museum, Davenport, continued as Quad-Citians who had been strangers an hour before talked together while they left the room.

Gaye Shannon Burnett, executive director/curator at The Azubuike African American Council for the Arts, was the host. Among those attending and their perspectives were:

\u2022 Burnett: Much like items that are labeled \u201cMade in the USA,\u201d \u201cI think it would be even nicer to have it labeled \u2018Made in the Quad-Cities.\"

\u2022 Kathleen Conway, retired teacher: \u201cThere is so much food wasted,\u201d she said, adding that Augustana College, Rock Island, has a food program that involves a local farmer who provides fresh food and uses leftovers as compost and for animals. She hopes children can start gardening and composting in schools.

\u2022 Nick Cox, of Frontier Hospitality Group: \u201cThe idea of a major tourism campaign is so important to us.\u201d

\u2022 Maria Dickmann, Davenport alderwoman: \u201cThat\u2019s something that you can\u2019t duplicate: Our mighty Mississippi River.\u201d

\u2022 Jessica Gordon, regional field manager, for Understood, whose goal is to help parents of children ages 3\u201320, who struggle with learning: \u201cWe don\u2019t take the perspective of people who haven\u2019t lived here their whole lives as much as we should.\u201d She added that the Quad-Cities needs \u201ca central repository for services.\u201d

\u2022 Nate Lawrence, executive director of Polyrhythms, a local non-profit organization dedicated to providing exposure to the arts that includes a monthly jazz series: \u201cThe bridge right down here, the first railroad bridge, across the Mississippi River, the lawyer there was Abraham Lincoln. Dred Scott lived here.\u201d He added that the Quad-Cities needs to market itself as a single entity. \u201cThere\u2019s no marketing plan. Everyone wants their little piece of turf. We\u2019re supposed to be joined by a river.\u201d

\u2022 Shirley McLemore: For 30 years several of the inner-city parks provided activities for at-risk young people. But now that the nonprofit organization that provided the activities is gone, \u201cFor the first time in 30 years, this is not going to happen.\u201d

\u2022 David Ricci, owner of Liberty Anodizing, West Liberty, Iowa: \u201cWe\u2019re right in the middle of the world, of the interstate.\u201d He added that part of the plan going forward should be promotion of the region\u2019s talent pool. \u201cA major part of the vision should emphasize manufacturing.\u201d

The largest passenger boat on the Upper Mississippi River \u2014 Moline's Celebration Belle\u00a0\u2014 has a new calling.

As the vessel heads downstream from its home port for the first cruises of the season, passengers are getting something many didn't expect: They find themselves smack in the middle, literally, of a billion-dollar spectacle on the water.

\"042218-QCT-QCA-BIGSTORYCELEBRATION-019\"

The Intestate 74 bridge is seen from aboard the Celebration Belle on the Mississippi River in Bettendorf on Friday, April 13, 2018.

Beginning on the Bettendorf and Moline shorelines, miniature cities made of platforms, cranes, portable toilets, shipping containers, cement trucks and workers press inward toward the channel. But they have to keep the passageway clear so boats and barges can use the river, too.

\"042218-QCT-QCA-BIGSTORYCELEBRATION-005\"

Construction workers on the Interstate 74 bridge project wave at passengers aboard the Celebration Belle in Bettendorf on Friday, April 13, 2018.

Some of the workers who are building the new Interstate 74 bridge took a moment last week to acknowledge the Celebration Belle passengers who waved at them from the boat's upper decks.

\"042218-QCT-QCA-BIGSTORYCELEBRATION-004\"

Some boaters have called for a no wake zone near the barges in place for I-74 bridge construction, to protect workers.

As the pleasure-boating season approaches, many Quad-Citians soon will get their chance to see for themselves what's been going on in the water. And, just like the people driving cars and trucks in construction zones on land, boat pilots are likely to encounter an obstacle or two that tries their patience.

The bustling scene on the water is a chaotic display of human ingenuity, and it is in our nature to want a closer look. \u00a0

Welcome aboard

For the lunchtime cruise on Friday, April 13, the Celebration Belle boarded 104 passengers.

Most were staying at the Isle of Capri on the Bettendorf riverfront; in town for a weekend of square and round dancing.

Though the four-floor vessel typically departs from its home port on the Ben Butterworth Parkway in Moline, the crew spared their passengers the commute and powered across the Mississippi for a special pickup.

When everyone was aboard, Captain Patrick Kroeger stepped out of the warmth of the enclosed captain's bridge and onto the port side of the vessel. The top-level cabin is flanked by \"wings,\" which are equipped with steering capabilities.

Kroeger needed to see the Isle's docks as he pulled off, and the wings make that possible. The outdoor steering area also made it possible for the captain to communicate directly with the crew below as they untied the Belle from her mooring. As rain began to fall in a sprinkle, the captain turned the bow of the boat downriver.

\"We'll be in the construction zone in no time,\" he said, stepping back inside the heated captain's bridge.

A native of LeClaire, Kroeger comes from a boating family and got his first vessel at 14. He earned his pilot's license about 10 years ago and said, \"I'm the luckiest guy in the world.\"

Even on a cold, windy day, the view from his \"desk\" of the Mississippi River stretching out before him was solid evidence of Kroeger's claim.

As crew members cleared away the lunch buffet on the first deck, a couple dozen passengers headed for the dance floor, swirling and twirling to the tune of 'Rollin' on the River.'

Square dancers get up and dance to a version of Robin Thicke's \"Blurred Lines\" after lunch aboard the Celebration Belle in Bettendorf on Friday, April 13, 2018.

A dozen-or-so others wandered onto the captain's bridge. Between Kroeger's narration about the Rock Island Arsenal and other local history, the curious slipped in their questions.

\"Is it going to be a whole new bridge?\" one out-of-town passenger asked.

Marisa Llaca, 5, of Austin, Texas, climbs up the railing in the bridge as captain Patrick Kroeger offers her a chance to drive the Celebration Belle in Bettendorf on Friday, April 13, 2018.

\"Will they take the old bridge down?\" asked another.

\"Do you really think the thing will ever get done?\" inquired a skeptic.

And Kroeger answered them all \u2014 mindful that his expanding expertise will be in demand for the next several seasons.

Bridge bookings

Scott Schadler grew up in the riverboat business that his father, Joe Schadler, built.

He knows his boat, and he knows the Mississippi River. He hopes he knows his customers, too, because his gut tells him people will book his cruises, at least in part, to get a good look at the bridge construction.

\"I think we'll get a lot of people who aren't just from the Quad-Cities who want to see it,\" he said. \"It's pretty amazing to look at. The project is huge.\"

Boat manager Bob Martinez said he's typically too busy during cruises to step outside and gawk at the birth of the new I-74. But, when he's not running up and down the four floors of the Belle, he steps out and takes a few pictures with his phone.

\"I've posted some pictures on Facebook, and friends ask what's going on with the construction,\" he said. \"I think we'll get people onboard who want to see it, but I think we'll get even more next season.

\"Passengers can look at what's going on now and compare it next season \u2014 when the new bridge will actually be coming out of the river.\"

'At night, it's like an airport'

Anyone who spends time on the Mississippi River is aware of it dangers, especially for boaters.

During the next several years, beginning this season, boaters are going to have to be extra vigilant when in the water near the I-74 bridge.

\"042218-QCT-QCA-BIGSTORYCELEBRATION-024\"

A system of barges are seen on the Mississippi River for the Interstate 74 bridge project from aboard the Celebration Belle in Bettendorf.

\"It can be dangerous out there,\" Schadler said of the construction areas. \"At night, it's like an airport. The big lights are on, and they're moving all over the place.\"

Also a licensed captain, he said everyone needs to be hyper aware when the amateurs hit the water.

\"They'll have their hands full with the recreational boaters,\" Schadler predicted of the construction crew.

\"The main thing they'll have trouble with is keeping them off the Illinois shore,\" Kroeger said, adding that most area boaters know the river is plenty deep in areas around the bridge; not just in the channel. \"I wouldn't want to be on a construction barge and have some 20-foot boat come by and throw a 4-foot wake.\"

Scott Clements is a longtime boater and has served multiple terms on the board of the Lindsay Park Yacht Club on the Davenport riverfront. He said this year's late start to the boating season gives him time to get word out about any changes to the navigation channel in the area of the I-74.

And he thinks the Coast Guard should make some changes, agreeing with Kroeger that recreational boats could threaten worker safety.

\"The crew is running small boats at the construction zone,\" Clements said. \"If somebody zips through and throws a wake, those guys could be thrown right off the boat or against a fixed structure. It's definitely a concern.

\"As it is, when boats fly through there, they're rocking the Isle of Capri docks, too.\"

He said the Coast Guard last season indicated they might close the main channel near the bridge and divert boat traffic toward the Illinois side and into the old lock. The old structure still is apparent from its narrow passageway with crumbling concrete walls.

Using the old lock would be fine, Clements said, but the Coast Guard should go one step further: \"The whole area, from upstream of the bridge and through the old lock, should be flagged as no wake. It should be flagged from the rock pile to below the bridge. No-wake buoys would be a good start.

\"It's not that there's bad water at the old lock. But any kind of wake gets amplified against those walls. I've seen inexperienced pilots try to follow the big boats like the Channel Cats through there, and they can get into trouble real quick.\"

No-wake zone a no, for now

So far, the plan is twofold: Put up signs to notify boaters of the work in the water and light up the construction sites.

\"Signing and buoys will be installed this spring on both sides of the lateral dam as well as between the new and old bridges,\" said Danielle Mulholland, I-74 project manager for the Iowa DOT. \"We also use lighting to provide visual identification of the added barges and equipment during nighttime hours within the construction area.\"

For now, at least, the primary contractor for the bridge is not asking for a no-wake zone.

\"From the way I understand it, the request has been dropped,\" said Pete Sambor, bridge management specialist in the Coast Guard's St. Louis office.

The main bridge contractor, Lunda Construction, initially inquired about a no-wake zone, Sambor said, adding he thinks they abandoned the request after becoming aware of all the paperwork that's needed to get such a request approved by the Coast Guard.

\"I will say, there's the possibility the state (DOT), using the DNR (Department of Natural Resources), could request a navigation review for issuance of a state-level no-wake zone,\" he said.

Last year, he said, Lunda also asked about the possibility of closing off portions of the river along the Illinois shore to accommodate a \"slick line.' The term refers to the flow of concrete from the shore into the water, using barges to keep the concrete path above water and eliminating the need for concrete trucks for especially big jobs.

Again, the necessary paperwork was so daunting, Sambor said, the contractor backed off the request for now. Plus, he said, the Coast Guard would be hesitant to restrict use of the old lock, because many boaters prefer it over the main channel.

The contractor could elect to pursue restrictions as the work proceeds, he said, and there's plenty of time for that to happen, given the multi-year construction.

At Sambor's office, the Coast Guard manages projects for 22 states, he said. From end to end, he said, the I-74 bridge will be 5,668 feet, which is more than a mile. But bridges over the Lower Mississippi can be twice as long, because the river is so much wider.

During the Celebration Belle's 90-minute lunch cruise last week, workers at the bridge made radio contact several times with boats that were coming upstream from Lock & Dam 15.

\"They're letting them know they're out here; as a courtesy,\" Capt. Kroeger said. \"In our case, we just stay out of each other's way.\"

And Sambor said boating courtesy, along with the signage and buoys, should do the trick this season.

\"Floating work plants usually give plenty of navigation space,\" he said. \"At the discretion of the applicant, a no-wake zone could be pursued again. It's a pretty long project.\"

DES MOINES\u00a0\u2014\u00a0Barbara Bush was every bit the \u201cenforcer\u201d that her family lovingly called her, but she also was a woman with a great sense of humor and a heart of gold, according to a Des Moines woman who knew her.

For roughly four years, Becky Beach was the personal assistant of the former first lady.\u00a0Barbara Bush died Tuesday at the age of 92 and is one of just two women to have a husband and son in the White House. Abigail Adams is the other.

Beach worked as Barbara Bush\u2019s personal aid from 1978 to 1982. During that time, Bush\u2019s husband George H.W. Bush ran for president and served as vice president under President Ronald Reagan.

Beach had come to know the Bush family through her grandmother, Mary Louise Smith, who was co-chair of the national Republican Party when George H.W. Bush was chair. Beach volunteered for George H.W. Bush\u2019s 1978 presidential campaign, and later that year was hired as Barbara Bush\u2019s personal aid.

Beach traveled across the country with the woman who years later would become first lady when George H.W. Bush was elected president in 1988.

\u201cShe was very funny, very witty, great sense of humor,\u201d Beach said. \u201cShe worshiped her family, and they her.\u201d

The Bush family lovingly called its matriarch \u201cthe enforcer,\u201d and Beach said she could live up to the name.

\u201cIf she was unhappy with you, she would give you the look,\u201d Beach said. \u201cBut she was gracious and understanding. She\u2019s just a wonderful person with a heart of gold. Absolutely a heart of gold.\u201d

Beach is one of the 1,500 individuals who were invited to Barbara Bush\u2019s private funeral, scheduled for Saturday in Texas. She spoke to the bureau from Houston and said she plans attend the funeral.

Beach said she last saw Barbara Bush at a lunch gathering a little more than a year ago, and said at the time the former first lady \u201cwas doing great.\u201d Beach said when she heard the news this week of Bush\u2019s passing, she cried.

\u201cI was very sad,\u201d Beach said. \u201cShe made the decision to not have any more medical treatment, and true to herself that\u2019s what she wanted and that\u2019s what she did. To me, that took a lot of courage for her to say I don\u2019t want to go back to the hospital, enough is enough.\u201d

Beach said after landing in Texas, she learned that George H.W. Bush, who is 93 years old and has had health issues recently, greeted mourners Friday at the public viewing for his late wife.

\u201cThat\u2019s just extraordinary. Just amazing,\u201d Beach said. \u201cThat\u2019s the kind of people they are. They want to thank people, show appreciation. They\u2019re the most selfless, kind people I\u2019ve ever met.\u201d

Kathy McCoy of Waterloo worked for then-Vice President George H.W. Bush\u2019s advance team in 1982 and 1983. McCoy recalled to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier how much Barbara Bush loved children.

\u201cIf there were five or 105 kids (at an event), both Mr. and Mrs. Bush would focus on the children and beamed such heartfelt smiles,\u201d McCoy said.

McCoy also recalled Barbara Bush\u2019s role as \u201cthe enforcer,\u201d especially when it came to protecting the family\u2019s grandchildren, including Jenna and Barbara Bush, the daughters of George W. and Laura Bush.

\u201cGeorge H.W. was the softy. Barbara was the enforcer, and everyone wanted her approval,\u201d McCoy said.

About 250 Pleasant Valley High School students stood together in solidarity in the middle of the football field Friday to protest gun violence and demand action on gun reform.

Some students held signs that read, \u201cNo more silence,\u201d and \u201cYou can\u2019t build peace with a piece.\u201d

Several students donned orange \u201cEnough is Enough\u201d t-shirts. At least one student had placed duct tape over her mouth in silent protest.

They all could agree \u2013 something needs to change when it comes to gun violence both locally and across the country.

\"Walk-Out

Several of the nearly 250 Pleasant Valley High School students carried signs and wore t-shirts saying \"Enough Is Enough\" during the National School Walkout Day Friday. April 20, 2018.

\u201cWe do not want to become another generation that loses hope,\u201d Junior Lily Williams told the crowd. \u201cWe must ensure that this activism does not fade away after the walkouts and the marches. We have to take determined steps each and every day.\u201d

\"Walk-Out

About 250 Pleasant Valley High School students listen to Vashista Chintalapalli during the National School Walkout Day, an event to demand action on gun reform and commemorate the shooting at Columbine High School 19-years ago.

At 10 a.m. students from across the country walked out of class as part of the National School Walkout to protest the lack of action from Congress, state and local leaders to prevent gun violence, according to National School Walkout website. It came on 19th anniversary of a mass school shooting at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, and served as a remembrance of the 12 students and one teacher who were killed by gunman Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. The two committed suicide in the school after the shootings.

\u201cThe goal was to get as many people out here as possible, knowing they want change,\u201d said Keshav Wagle, a PVHS senior and one of the organizer\u2019s of the walkout. \u201cWith sheer numbers alone, people will see that, legislators will see that, and they\u2019ll see that enough people want change.\u201d

\"Walk-Out

Pleasant Valley High School junior Nikki Chang holds a sign saying, \"We can't be the future if we're dead #NeverAgain.\"

\u201cWe are aware that gun violence is not just a Columbine issue, a Sandy Hook issue, a Virginia Tech issue, a Parkland issue,\u201d Williams said. \u201cWe recognize that gun violence is not just a school epidemic. Gun violence is not just a domestic abuse statistic. Gun violence is not just a reality of racial injustice. Gun violence is a United States epidemic affecting all corners of our country, even here in the Quad Cities.\u201d

Wagle, who is the son of Pleasant Valley School Board member Nikhil Wagle, said students should feel 100 percent safe when they walk into their school.

\u201cEven if there\u2019s a slight chance that you don\u2019t feel safe, it\u2019s not right,\u201d he said. \u201cWe come here every day, we need to be here in order to properly succeed in life.\"

One idea he suggested to strengthen school safety is to require every student to show their student identification card when they enter the school. He also encouraged students to say something if they see something, whether they believe it\u2019s serious or not.

\u201cNothing can be taken as a joke,\u201d he said.

He also encouraged students to continue to advocate for what they believe is right.

Students across the country, including some in the Quad-Cities, held a similar walkout March 14, one month after a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 dead. Accused gunman, Nikolas Jacob Cruz, was arrested shortly after the shooting. That shooting set off a fierce debate surrounding gun control and school safety across the nation.

\"Walk-Out

PVHS Junior Ava Siegler encouraged students to accept opinions different from their own, no matter where they stood on the issue.

PVHS Junior Ava Siegler encouraged students Friday to accept opinions different from their own, no matter where they stood on the issue.

\u201cHow are we supposed to make a problem better if we only accept one side of the argument in a positive light?\u201d she asked the crowd. \u201cHow are we supposed to claim that we accept everyone when we only interpret one set of ideas and attempt to censor those that we disagree with?\u201d

North Scott High School

At North Scott High School, students walked out to Lancer Stadium for a 17- minute program.\u00a0

Ivy Jensen, a senior, and Alexis Raleigh, a junior, are two of the organizers for the walkout.

Raleigh, 16, said students started talking about organizing something after the shootings in Parkland and the death of fellow North Scott student Scott James \u201cS.J.\u201d Madden Junior, 15, of Park View. The teen was killed in a two vehicle, head-on crash near Eldridge Feb. 14, the same day as the Parkland shootings.\u00a0

\u201cA lot of people talked about how painful it was to lose (Madden) on the same day Parkland happened,\u201d she said.

Jensen, 18, said she has been passionate about gun safety since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012. She was only 12 at the time.

\u201cIt\u2019s always been important for me,\u201d she said. \u201cA lot of people really understand that it could be any school. It could be anyone and it needs to be taken really seriously.\u201d

Raleigh said the goal of Friday\u2019s walkout was not just about gun control.\u00a0

\u201cWe have said that it\u2019s about getting legislation passed to address school shootings and the amount of gun violence happening in schools,\u201d she said.

Raleigh and Jensen said that could be accomplished by having A.L.I.C.E. (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate) drills in schools, locking classroom doors, and having an officer on campus.

BURLINGTON, Iowa \u2014 On Education Day at Burlington\u2019s Community Field, the Quad-Cities River Bandits didn\u2019t make the grade.

Burlington scored eight runs in the first inning and added five more in the fifth, sixth and eighth to club Quad-Cities 28-7 in a Midwest League rout Friday watched by a crowd of 2,246.

The Bees pounded River Bandits pitching for 24 hits.

Burlington sent 12 batters to the plate in the first inning and extended its lead later in the game with a pair of grand slams, one by Jo Adell in the sixth inning and another two innings later by Brandon Marsh.

The 28 runs marked the first time Quad-Cities had surrendered more than 20 runs in a game since Peoria beat the River Bandits 21-3 in Davenport on July 4, 1994.

It was also the first time since Burlington won a 16-15 game over Quad-Cities on June 10, 2012, that the River Bandits had been involved in a game in which the two teams combined for more than 30 runs.

On Friday, Quad-Cities actually led 1-0 when Corey Julks opened the game with a single and took third on a throwing error as he stole second base. Julks then scored on a wild pitch before things got really wild for the Bees.

Burlington mustered just three singles during its eight-run first inning, but the start for the River Bandits' Cesar Rosado ended after he hit a batter and walked three more Bees.

The third, to Harrison Wenson, tied the game at 1-1 before Spencer Griffin moved Burlington ahead to stay with an RBI single off of reliever Cole Watts.

Runs scored on an error, a wild pitch and run-scoring singles by Gleyvin Pineda and Adell added to the Bees' lead, which grew to 10-1 during a second inning that included a homer by Wenson.

Five of the six pitchers Quad-Cities used in the game allowed at least three runs.

The River Bandits scored four of their runs in the top of the ninth inning, including Jake Adams\u2019 first home run of the season. The All-American from Iowa belted a three-run shot to left, his first home run at the full-season level as a professional.

Quad-Cities collected 10 hits from eight players, including two apiece from Julks and J.J. Matijevic.

The River Bandits and Bees play doubleheaders the next two days at Community Field, beginning with a 3 p.m. twin bill today.
