The manure man from Arizona bought three John Deere 624K wheel loaders he'll only get to operate on really good days.

At about $200,000 each, Donny King spent more than a half-million dollars at John Deere Davenport Works. And that's just this time around.

King and his wife, Karri, operate D & K Farming Enterprises in Goodyear, Arizona, supplying farms and farmers across their state with the fertilizer they need to keep them in high yields. They flew to the Quad-Cities this past week to star in an elite production: a Gold Key tour of the plant where their wheel loaders were made.

The tour is part wine-and-dine; part behind-the-scenes access.

While several thousand people tour Davenport Works every year, only high-dollar customers like the Kings get the Gold Key treatment. The close-up look at the production line put them shoulder-to-shoulder with the workers who made the equipment that makes their operations possible.

It began, as most things do, with introductions.

Keeping up with the times

In the general manager's conference room at the Deere plant off Highway 61 in Davenport, Donny King was asked to tell a half-dozen employees about his business.

\"My dad started the company in 1960,\" he began. \"We just had dozers in those days. Now our loaders do all the work. We run 22 spreaders pretty much all day. There's a dairy boom in Arizona right now, and we have 170,000 milk cows, which is a high number for Arizona. There are very few small dairies in the state.

\"I'll probably be the last generation of farmers in the King family.\"

In early October, many people in the Quad-Cities detected a powerful odor that lingered in the air for a couple of days. An Iowa conservation officer confirmed what most people figured: The smell was coming from manure that was being applied to Scott County farm fields.

That's what D & K does. The company collects, sometimes treats, then spreads manure.

It is clear from his arsenal of heavy equipment \u2014 and his recent acquisitions \u2014 that business is good.

\"I'm the boss, so it's a really good day\u00a0\u2014 like a day off \u2014 when I get to run a machine,\" King said. \"My (equipment) operators don't know how spoiled they are.\"

Today's air-conditioned cabs are a far cry from the open-air seat of a mid-century bulldozer. In earlier years, King said, \"If my dad bought an umbrella for the sun, he was really doing something. That and the bandanas we wore over our mouths were our protection.\"

A lot has changed.

As organic farming has come into favor, for instance, D & K has learned to heat-treat manure to remove chemicals, so it's organic.

You have to be flexible to grow, and that's one reason King is loyal to John Deere.

After his first plant tour in 20 years, he was asked whether he noticed changes in manufacturing, to which he replied, \"A little bit has changed \u2014 not their pride, though. Everybody here is proud of what they do.\"

Shaking hands, asking questions

Though it hasn't always been the case, John Deere manufactures heavy equipment only after it has been ordered.

Customers choose their options, and the build begins.

With the Kings on their trip to Davenport were Mike and Jolanda Britain, who represented the Chandler, Arizona, dealership from which the Kings order their equipment. The foursome was among 14 of us, mostly Deere employees, who suited up for the Gold Key tour.

We wore hard hats, safety glasses and vests, and ear pieces that allowed us to hear what various tour guides were saying. For most of the three-hour tour, we rode on a long golf-cart-like tour train. Workers regularly looked up from their stations along the assembly line to smile and wave.

For the walking-tour portion, we met several from the loader-building crew.

At first, the Kings and Britains were introduced to workers who were asked to explain what they do. But the tour soon became less formal, and Donny King simply walked up to people, stuck out his hand and started asking questions. Mostly, he chit-chatted, asking workers how long they've been on the job.

From the get-go, Deere employees thanked the Kings for their business. They minced no words, telling the couple outright that their business allows John Deere workers to feed their families. The sentiment didn't change on the plant floor. Over and over, welders and assemblymen thanked the Kings for their business.

In his black cowboy hat, Wrangler jeans, silver belt buckle and considerable stature, Donny King had a presence on the line. Pleasant and approachable, he easily moved from questions about hydraulic hoses to his big-picture worries.

\"The next generation, they don't want to go into ag, and that's a real problem for us,\" he told one of the Deere retirees who volunteers to help with the tours. \"We have a lot of Hispanics working in our industry, and we really need those guys, especially on the dairy farm.

\"They are hardworking family men, and they do work the white guys don't want. We can't do without the Hispanic guys. We need to figure out a work program, or we're going to be paying $6 for a tomato.\"

On one wall of the plant is a map of the United States \u2014 dotted with push pins. King was asked to push a pin into the area of Arizona that will be in receipt of three new wheel loaders from Davenport.

As he located Goodyear on the map, his wife, Karri, was asked whether she drives the giant loaders.

\"I've moved 'em down the road, but I don't operate them,\" she said. \"I don't get out of the office very often.\"

What goes on in there?

Deere's Davenport Works employs about 1,250 people. All the workers who were laid off in recent years have been called back, and more are being hired, said Eric Fish, business unit manager.

Groundbreaking for the plant occurred in 1974, but it has undergone multiple expansions over the years, and now contains a sprawling 2.2 million square feet.

Donny King toured the plant 20 years ago. On that tour, he spoke with workers about a specific problem he noticed with the hydraulic hoses on one of his John Deere machines. Soon after, the problem was fixed in newer models.

\"I feel like I had something to do with that,\" he said of the upgrade.

And Fish assured him it's entirely possible. Deere relies on its customers to report problems and/or to suggest ways to make their products better.

Just inside the plant, one of King's loaders supplied the backdrop for some photos to mark the occasion. But the presence of the equipment also gave King the chance to look it over before it's shipped to Arizona.

\"He can ask questions on his own machine,\" said Dwight Anderson, another Deere retiree who volunteers on the tours. \"He can look it over as closely as he likes.\"

A few more photos, along with the presentation of a plaque and a gold key, and we headed into the factory.

Fish, the business unit manager, sat next to me on the train. He supplied details about the operation that weren't necessarily part of the tour.

\"That's the largest machine John Deere builds,\" he said, nodding toward the enormous 944K wheel loader.

He pointed out the fresh-air masks that are worn on the backs of all the welders. And he pointed to the plastic caps on the ends of hydraulic hoses that waited in stacks to be installed.

\"Those caps keep the smallest particles out of the hoses,\" he said.

At one of the paint bays, I asked Fish how they keep the area so clean. I couldn't detect any overspray on the giant windows of the bay.

The robots that do the painting know exactly what parts and pieces they're spraying, so that's part of it, he said. But also: There's a built-in down draft that sucks any paint particles to the floor under the paint bay. It lands on water, which then is skimmed of residual paint.

We watched as a large loader part was primed, then immediately painted yellow in the wet-on-wet process.

More details came through our ear pieces:

\u2022 Once every half-hour, the air in the plant is re-circulated.

\u2022 The plant uses 220 tons of steel a day.

\u2022 Many of the cabs for loaders and other equipment have no windows. Many customers in the southern U.S. don't need them.

\u2022 Dye is added to all the fluids in the equipment, so fluorescent lights can detect any leaks.

\u2022 More than half of the welding in the plant is done by robots.

'I just do the best job I can'

On our walking tour, we encountered several Deere employees who were put on the spot. Some didn't see us coming. None knew what questions the Kings might have.

When we came to Tim Rockstroh, he told us he's been with the company for six years, and he told us a little about his job building axles.

It was at his work station that a couple of us noticed how the enormous machines advance along the assembly line. Early in the process, the axles are bolted to rolling carts. As more parts are added, the wheeled carts continue to do their job, advancing the ever-bigger equipment down the line.

Before we moved along, Rockstroh looked at Donny King and said, \"I just do the best job I can, so you guys have good products.\"

By the end of the tour, we could see how an axle grows into a wheel loader.

Among several last steps is putting each machine through a 250-point test for defects. In a high-security area dubbed the \"Golden Corral,\" each machine goes onto a $140,000 hydraulic lift table for its final indoor inspection.

King mentioned the warranty on a wheel loader fetches $8,000. But he has put enough miles on John Deere equipment to have faith in quality. Just in case, Fish had a couple final peace-of-mind offerings.

The lift tables that come out of the floor are used to raise the near-finished machines, so the rolling carts can be removed and the tires can be added. If the torque value on wheel bolts is not precisely correct, the table will lock itself and cannot be lowered to free the machine. An engineer has to override the table after the torque value is corrected.

\"Then, with every machine we build, we take it outside and run it for 20 minutes to a half-hour,\" Fish said.

Despite the quality assurances, Fish said plant operations are constantly advancing.

\"During Christmas break, we'll be reorganizing the whole line,\" he said. \"It'll be much more efficient.\"

The Gold Key customers seemed satisfied.

Before the Kings and Britains headed into a Deere-hosted lunch, Donny King gave a final impression: \"It's amazing. They're always changing, always trying to make things better. That's the way to do business.\"

Two Davenport police officers, one of whom was injured seriously, as well as another person, were hurt when police responded to an early-morning report of a burglary in Davenport.

According to a news release from the Davenport Police Department, Davenport police responded about 5:13 a.m. to a burglary in progress at a residence at 400 E. 12th St., Davenport.

Officers confronted a person inside of the home, where a physical altercation occurred. During the struggle, an officer discharged a service weapon. The subject and both officers were injured.

One officer was transported to a hospital.

Out of courtesy to the two police officers, the names of the officers have not been released so that their families can be notified first. The other subject's name also has not been released.

As a Davenport Police Department protocol, the Scott County Sheriff's Office was notified and will investigate the incident.

A 26-year-old man was fatally shot early Sunday after exchanging gunfire with Davenport police officers, the Scott County Sheriff\u2019s Office said Monday.

An autopsy is pending for Matthew Donald Tobin, the sheriff\u2019s office said in a news release posted to the website late Monday afternoon.

The sheriff\u2019s office is investigating the shooting. Sheriff Tim Lane said Monday that he did not have an exact timeline for when the investigation would be completed.

Davenport police responded about 5:13 a.m. Sunday to a burglary in progress at a residence in the 400 block of East 12th Street.

Officers confronted a person inside the home and a physical confrontation ensued and an officer discharged their firearm.

According to the sheriff\u2019s office, Tobin also was armed and exchanged gunfire. King was struck in the head, according to the sheriff\u2019s office.

King and Waline were transported to Genesis Medical Center-East Rusholme Street, Davenport, for non-life-threatening injuries. King underwent immediate surgery as a result of his injuries.

Tobin was pronounced dead at the scene. No other information was available Monday.

Online records show that Tobin was on parole on a drug charge out of Cerro Gordo County.\u00a0

It was a scary scene as players huddled around the Tulsa Oilers bench Friday night.

First responders, doctors, players and staff from both teams watched as Tulsa head coach Rob Murray received medical attention after collapsing in the second period of the Oilers' game against the Quad-City Mallards at the TaxSlayer Center.

Murray was transported to Trinity West in Rock Island to receive overnight care.

At 10:49 p.m., Oilers vice president of communications and play by play announcer John Peterson tweeted out, \"Update on Coach Murray: He's doing well. The doctors have told me he's suffering from dehydration and exhaustion. They said there's no concern right now. Tests are coming back. I will continue to update. Thank you for all the thought, prayers and positive vibes.\"

According to Dr. Matt McKay, an emergency doctor at Trinity who was one of those tending to the 50-year-old Murray on the bench, the Tulsa head coach was awake and talking by the time the first responders reached him.

After a delay of over 10 minutes, Murray was taken off the ice on a stretcher. He was moving and holding his right hand over his face.

The game itself, in which Tulsa led the Mallards 2-1 with 12 minutes, 8 seconds left in the second period, was postponed until a later date. Tickets to Friday's game will be honored when a date is determined.

Tulsa captain Adam Pleskach was on the bench when Murray collapsed and made sure play was stopped so he could be tended to.

\"He was just on the ground and (we) knew something wasn't right so we had the linesman blow the whistle so we could get attention as fast as we could,\" Pleskach said. \"I didn't see when he fell, I just saw when we were trying to help him up and knew something wasn't right. It wasn't just that he slipped and fell; it was something else. We were all really worried and shaken up, but he's a really good guy, and he's a good coach.

\"At the time, it's not something you see every day, and it's not something you want to see, and you're not sure how serious it is at the time. Right now we're just praying that he's going to be OK, and I think he is going to be OK.\"

Mallards head coach Phil Axtell didn't realize something was wrong until he noticed the Oilers players waving over medical personnel.\u00a0

\"I looked over and (athletic trainer Steve Lintern) was holding him,\" Axtell said. \"Thoughts and prayers to Coach Murray and everyone in his organization.\"

Murray, who played 16 years professionally, is in his first year with Tulsa after six seasons coaching the Alaska Aces, winning a Kelly Cup in 2013.

\"He's meant a lot,\" Pleskach said. \"He's really shaking up, really a different culture than it's been the last couple of years. Guys really rally around him. He's a really good guy to have around. He builds guys up so that's why we're just beside him through this thing.\"

The Oilers are currently just four games into a 14-game road trip and were scheduled to play in Indianapolis today. The status of that game had not been determined Friday night as the Oilers stayed in a local hotel overnight. The Mallards did not have any indication of when their game against the Oilers would be resumed.

\"It's rare that it happens, and hopefully he's good and you move on,\" Mallards President and General Manager Bob McNamara said. \"You play the game at some point, and hopefully he's all good and hopefully it was a minor episode and you deal with it.\"

The incident left players stunned and lost for words, while McNamara was in tears in the immediate aftermath. He was in Grand Rapids when former Detroit defenseman Ji\u0159\u00ed Fischer went into cardiac arrest while with the Red Wings almost exactly 12 years ago, and the incident Friday hit close to home.

\"The first responders were amazing. Genesis Health, they were amazing,\" he said. \"I don't know their names, but it was Genesis.\"

While all the Oilers remained on the ice while Murray was receiving attention, the Mallards went into the locker room, with the exception of Tristan King and Jacob Graves.

The team has to refocus for today's game against the Kansas City Mavericks.

\"Make sure they're focused and approach (today) like it's another game,\" Axtell said. \"We're pretty beat up (and shaken up). It's never good to see anyone in that state.\"

BLUE GRASS\u00a0\u2014 Randall (Randy) Fred Dittmer, 66, went home to be with his Lord on Nov. 16, 2017, after a long battle with ALS/FTD. He died peacefully at home, surrounded by family and friends. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of nearly 15 years, Melody, and his children, Sean (Catherine Glidewell) Dittmer of Walcott, Stacy (Freddy) Almanza of Chicago, and Stephanie Dittmer of Davenport; stepchildren, Matthew (Amber) Brand of Kansas City, Missouri, Misty (Luke) Dobbs of Youngsville, Louisiana, and Marcus (Kelly) Brand of Davenport. He will also be fondly remembered by his grandchildren, Alfredo, Adeline and Aubriella Almanza, Andrea and Sophia Dittmer, Skylar Brand, Zoey Dobbs, Ella, Creighton and Camden Brand;\u00a0his siblings, Gary (Tammy) Dittmer of Hannibal, Missouri, Trudy Crane of Davenport; four nieces and one nephew.

Randy was born on April 4, 1951, to Fred P. and Helen (Roberts) Dittmer in Davenport. His parents preceded him in death, as did his stepmother, Marjorie McDermott Dittmer.

Police confirmed Monday that an East Moline man accused of fatally shooting 69-year-old Robert E. Neal Sr. on Friday night is his grandson, who lived with him.\u00a0

During a short news conference at East Moline City Hall, police revealed some new details in the case against Roman P. Knox, 23, who faces one count of first-degree murder.

At 9:31 p.m. Friday, police were called to the 200 block of 19th Street for a battery complaint.

Lt. Darren Gault said during Monday\u2019s news conference that police initially were contacted by a passerby who said that there appeared to be two people fighting on the sidewalk and that one of them had a gun.

Police also received multiple 911 calls from other witnesses who said they either heard or saw something, Gault said.

Police found Neal, who appeared to have a single gunshot wound to the chest, lying on the grass and\u00a0began administering aid until EMS took over.

He was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.\u00a0

Police from East Moline, Silvis, Moline and the Illinois State Police set up a perimeter to try and locate the shooter, Gault said.

Witnesses directed police to the north where they said they saw the suspect running.\u00a0

Knox, who was armed with a \u201clong\u201d gun and had blood on him, emerged from a home in the 100 block of 21st Street, surrendered \"quite quickly\" and was taken into custody without incident, Gault said.

Gault said the home is the one he shared with his grandfather.\u00a0

He added that the statements from witnesses were \u201cabsolutely vital\u201d to the quick arrest of Knox.

Knox remained in the Rock Island County Jail on\u00a0Monday on a $5 million bond and will be back in court Nov. 28 for a preliminary hearing.

Police have said that the shooting stemmed from an earlier argument. Gault confirmed Monday that Knox is Neal\u2019s grandson.

Gault said police are still trying to piece together a timeline of the shooting and declined to say what the two argued about. He did say that there was a history of domestic problems at the residence they shared.\u00a0

Court records show that Knox has misdemeanor convictions for battery in Rock Island County and domestic battery in Mercer County in 2015.

Gault said detectives are continuing to investigate the case. He encouraged anyone who may have heard or seen anything, spoke to Knox prior to the shooting, or who may have home or business surveillance video in the area to call 309-752-1545 or Crime Stoppers of the Quad-Cities at 309-762-9500.

This is the first homicide reported in East Moline in 2017. The last homicide, Gault said, was the 2010 shooting death of Steven J. Clemons, 28.
