As soon as she walked in to the downtown Davenport music venue, Juniper Rose\u2019s eyes locked onto the stage.

Her little legs explored the room as she nodded along to the house music and offered a handshake to band members waiting to play or people waiting for their drinks at the bar. When she approached the steps to the stage, though, her mother, Jaclyn Lindaas, scooped her up.

Juniper, who went to her first concert a month after she was born, wanted to be as close as possible to the music.

About three tunes into Adam Torres\u2019 set on Tuesday at the Triple Crown Whiskey Bar & Raccoon Motel, the singer/songwriter from Austin, Texas, gave Juniper the go-ahead.

\u201cThis next song goes out to a very special lady who is here tonight,\u201d Torres said. \u201cAnd if she wants to come on stage, she is welcome to.\u201d

With that, 18-month old Juniper, wobbled onto the stage and danced during the slow song, which her mother had first heard live back in the summer of 2016 when she was seven months pregnant.

The song\u2019s name? \u201cJuniper Arms.\u201d

Finding a community\u00a0

Lindaas says it\u2019s no accident that her daughter enjoys music so much.

The Wisconsin native moved to the Quad-Cities four years ago with a trash bag full of clothes and a mission to be part of the Quad-City\u2019s growing music scene. She went to shows at Rozz-Tox and did some marketing for Daytrotter, the music website and recording studio.

\u201cThat\u2019s how I made all my friends and found a community,\u201d Lindaas, 30, said. \u201cHere, music is literally everywhere and nonstop and at your fingerprints. It feels like family. Even if I go to a show and I don\u2019t know anyone, I feel like I\u2019m home.\u201d

When Lindaas found out she was pregnant, she continued to attend multiple shows per week in part because she thought, \u201cIn a few months, I\u2019m not going to be able to do this anytime I want.\u201d

Facing single parenthood, Lindaas also wanted to be around her adopted family.

\u201cIt was a pretty scary time,\u201d she said. \u201cI wasn\u2019t afraid to be a parent. I was afraid of the timing. I was afraid of feeling alone and being alone and ending up raising my child all alone. Rather than just being pregnant and feeling that way, I could be around people and laugh and sing and feel like I was part of something.\u201d

In the meantime, she ended up giving her daughter a head-start in joining the same community.\u00a0

Lindaas even went to a show two days before Juniper was born on Aug. 10, 2016. She ended up having to leave that concert at the Village Theatre early, though, because she was just hours away from going into labor.

\u201cShe probably heard more artists in the womb than anyone else,\u201d Lindaas said. \u201cI wanted her to have that experience.\u201d

During a June 2016, show at Daytrotter, Torres, one of Lindaas\u2019 favorite musicians, played \u201cJuniper Arms,\u201d a new song of his at the time, and Lindaas started crying. She had already considered the name Juniper and the song confirmed it.\u00a0

\u201cThat song just really hit me,\u201d Lindaas said. \u201cSomething happened where I was like, this is her.\u201d

A few months later, Torres sent a signed copy of his album to Juniper. It hangs in her bedroom.\u00a0

Q-C famous

Just a few days before she turned 1-month old, Juniper experienced her first music festival. Lindaas brought her daughter along to the inaugural GARP fest at Codfish Hollow in Maquoketa.

Lindaas noticed right away that her daughter\u2019s \u201ceyes light up\u201d at the sound of live music. She also noticed that Juniper tends to grab the attention of others in the crowd as well as musicians on stage.\u00a0

As Lindass said, in a room full of adults, \u201cJuniper stands out easily.\u201d

Together, they attend a few shows per month and Lindaas said her friends, as well as strangers, have embraced Juniper, who now confidently walks around venues, waving \u201chello\u201d to new people.

\u201cIt\u2019s clear when you see her interacting in these places that she is not afraid,\u201d Lindaas said. \u201cShe\u2019s in it completely.\u201d

As a result, the 18-month-old has been called \u201cQuad-City famous\u201d on a few occasions.

\"Juniper\"

Juniper Rose, who is 18 months old, shares the stage with Adam Torres, a musician from Austin, Texas, during his set on Tuesday at the Triple Crown Whiskey Bar & Raccoon Motel.

\u201cPeople I don\u2019t even know come up to me, and say, \u2018Oh my gosh, you\u2019re Juniper\u2019s mom,\u201d she said. \u201cThey know her before they know me and I think it\u2019s because there\u2019s really not very many kids her age going to these things. That\u2019s why a lot of people are like, \u2018Look at that tiny person walking around and having fun.\u2019\u201d

Despite her small stature, Juniper, who often wears blue noise-canceling headphones at shows, has a big presence at shows, according to Royce Barnett, who met Lindaas via the music community several years ago.

\u201cThat baby brings so much energy and light,\u201d Barnett, 28, who lives in Muscatine, said. \u201cShe\u2019s alway waving to people and making them smile. She\u2019s appreciating it as much as we are really. She\u2019s having just as much fun.\u201d

When she\u2019s walking around during shows or when Barnett holds Juniper, people around her often take out their phones to get a photo or video.

\u201cShe\u2019s just part of the community now,\u201d he said. \u201cIt\u2019s pure joy.\u201d

And that's what Lindaas hoped for.\u00a0

\u201cIt\u2019s not about me going out for a good time,\u201d she said. \u201cIt\u2019s about showing her that being part of your community is important. Even if I didn\u2019t have to bring her, I would 100 percent still bring her. I love experiencing it with her. It might be different than what I\u2019m used to, but it gives me even more of an appreciation for music and this place.\"\u00a0

'She's totally going to be cooler than me'

In the living room of their Davenport home on a recent afternoon, Lindaas put on a Mac Demarco record while Juniper scribbled on a piece of notebook paper and played with a mini ukulele.

On lazy days together, Juniper would rather listen to music, anything from Fleetwood Mac to Chance the Rapper, than watch TV. As her mom cooks dinner, Juniper sometimes picks up the rhythm from the kitchen and dances along.

\u201cMusic is just her thing. She could be super upset and you could play the right song, and her mood changes,\u201d Lindaas said. \u201cIt calms her down.\u201d

During hectic moments, it calms this single mother down, too.

\"I guess she gets that from me,\" Lindaas said.\u00a0

When she's older, Lindaas can see her daughter playing a bunch of instruments and joining a band. No matter what, though, she says they'll always enjoy music together.\u00a0

\u201cIt\u2019s something that we have to bonds us,\u201d she said. \u201cOne day, she\u2019ll be like, \u2018Mom, listen to this band I found.' She's totally going to be cooler than me.\"\u00a0

A pair of longtime buddies are\u00a0\u2014 literally and figuratively\u00a0\u2014 turning the lights on at the Scottish Rite Cathedral in Moline.

The 88-year-old stone mammoth and its parking lots take up the entire block between 7th and 8th avenues and 18th and 19th streets, just west of Interstate 74. The building spent most of its life as a primarily private space for Masonic and related fraternal organizations. While the exterior is iconic, its interior has been left largely to the imagination.

But banker Adam Bain and firefighter Blake Humphrey are partnering to open the 48,300-square-foot curiosity to the public.

The two have partnered before on residential real estate. They've known each other since they lived in the same neighborhood as kids. And they stayed close, each serving as the other's best man in their weddings.

Don't let the fact that Bain wears a suit while Humphrey dons flannel fool you.

\"People think he's the banker, and I'm, like, the worker,\" Humphrey said. \"He's a carpenter as well.\"

But taking on the Scottish Rite Cathedral is bringing out more brains than brawn.

\"We were looking to break into commercial (real estate),\" Humphrey said. \"I've driven by that thing; I don't know how many times. I never in a million years thought we'd own that.\"

Bain had a different experience: About a year ago, he was touring the cathedral with a group that was considering buying it. It had been on the market for about a year. But the interested parties couldn't come up with a reuse plan that had a chance of paying off.

\"It kind of fell off my radar,\" Bain said of the 10 months-or-so that followed. \"We had kind of a lull in some of our other projects, and I said, 'Blake, you have to check this out.'

\"It was one of the most gorgeous buildings I'd ever seen. So, we both went next time, and we said, 'How do we make this work?' In commercial real estate, it's all about the partnerships you make.\"

The men knew that one partnership in particular would be critical. Nearly three full floors of the four-story building (counting the basement) are occupied by a beautiful auditorium with a proper stage, 500 permanent seats, a full dressing room and room to either expand the stage or the seating.

Another old friend came to mind: Brent Tubbs and his wife, Sara. Both have lifelong experiences in the theater, and they agreed the cathedral space was ideal. So, the Spotlight Theatre & Event Center was born, and the Tubbses will run the show.

\"It is a professional theater, and it always has been,\" Bain said. \"The place was built to look like a cathedral to showcase Mason history and craftsmanship. I'm a Kiwanis member ... and it's very much the same. But the Masons' rituals are more evolved.

\"If you were graduating to another level in the organization, you might have had to perform something; say, something about one of the long-ago Masons, like George Washington. That's what the stage was for.\"

The stage now will get new uses: plays and musicals, speakers, concerts, comedians. A 350-seat reception hall also will bring the old building into public view. The partners are negotiating with a catering company that will help put the space and its 2,000-square-foot kitchen to use for wedding receptions and the long list of events that such spaces were designed to accommodate. The caterer also will acquire a liquor license that can be used in all areas of the building, using pop-up bars during theater performances, for instance.

Before buying the cathedral, neither Bain nor Humphrey knew much about the Masons or the theater. Both have since studied up. They're also learning to brainstorm plans for a project much larger than any house flip.

\"We are going to light up the cathedral,\" Bain said. \"It is going to glow. That building is going to pop. It is going to be a beacon in downtown Moline.\"

Besides showing off the architecture, precisely placed LED lighting will attract the attention of the estimated 50,000 vehicles that pass it daily, the pair said.

\"If we can accomplish what we hope \u2014 and I think we will \u2014 it will be the most amazing, lit-up building in the Quad-Cities,\" Humphrey said. \"We're still brainstorming the lighting ideas, and we know it's going to be expensive.\"

Though the pair doesn't close on the transaction until March 1, their excitement has been mounting daily because of the buzz their buy has created throughout the Quad-Cites.

\"How do you take a building like that \u2014 so well-built and so well-planned \u2014 and make it useful for the next 100 years?\" Bain asked. \"We believe you do that by making it a destination with multiple uses.

\"The place is a mystery and a gem. Until a certain time ... not that long ago, it basically was for Masons only. But there were a lot of them. Someone said to me, 'This was the Facebook of the 1930s.' It was a place for fellowship. The mystery and curiosity about the building is also driving the interest.\"

Given its right-off-the-bridge location, the partners are confident the cathedral will draw Quad-Citians from both sides of the river, which can be tricky to do.

Ultimately, they plan to add a wine bar and/or coffee shop, but they intend to do very little to the interior, structurally. The Masons, they said, took excellent care of their cathedral.

Cutline from a similar photo in The Daily Times, Feb. 3, 1923: This picture taken shortly before 8 o'clock this morning shows the ruins of the First National Bank building which was wrecked by fire early this morning. A sheet of ice completely covered the building from top to bottom. A mountain of ice as a result of the spray from the many streams of water was piled high over the sidewalk and blocked the doors. When the sun came out this morning and struck the ice covered building it had the appearance of being covered in diamonds. The damage has been estimated at about $100,000, a good part of which is covered by insurance. The fire for a time threatened the entire business district.

DES MOINES \u2014 House Democrats made a number of unsuccessful attempts Thursday to end the private managed care of the state\u2019s Medicaid program that serves more than 600,000 Iowans.

However, the minority party\u2019s amendments to House File 2356 were ruled not germane \u2014 not relevant \u2014 to the bill that would allow people to enter into direct primary care contracts with medical providers.

After lengthy debate on the bill and the amendments, the House voted 94-1 to allow Iowans to enter into agreements with primary care providers for preventive and curative health care for themselves and their families as stipulated in the agreement. People signing such agreements would pay a monthly fee \u2014 presumably less than a full health insurance premium \u2014 to their health care provider.

Earlier this session, the bill was approved by the Human Resources Committee 22-0. It now goes to the Senate.

The bill by Rep. Dave Heaton, R-Mount Pleasant, was modeled on a bill approved by the Nebraska Legislature last year. It would open the door to direct primary care, an emerging health care delivery option, especially for individuals with high-deductible health insurance plans.

The advantage, Heaton said, is that it could provide a low-cost alternative to having health insurance. However, he added, the agreement would not be insurance, and Iowans might want or need insurance to cover prescriptions, hospitalizations and specialty care.

Democrats, who oppose the privatized management of Medicaid, used the bill as an attempt to require the Department of Human Services to terminate those contracts with managed care organizations. It also calls for the transfer of long-term services and supports population to fee-for-service program administration.

Rep. Cindy Winckler, D-Davenport, warned of \u201cunintended consequences\u201d of the option. Direct primary care providers could \u201ccherry-pick,\u201d entering into agreements with healthier people, which, she said, could result in higher health insurance costs.

Like Winckler, Rep. Art Staed, D-Cedar Rapids, voted for the bill, but said there hasn\u2019t been enough discussion of direct primary care.

Rep. John Forbes, D-Des Moines, a pharmacist, said the bill provides an opportunity for people who can\u2019t afford health insurance. Also, he said that doctors who offer direct primary care often spend more time with patients talking about their health conditions and changes they could make to improve their health.

Quad-City area animal shelters and animal rescue organizations will be spotlighted as part of a new We Care Wednesday promotion at Quad-Cities River Bandits home games this season.

The Midwest League team plans to honor and raise funds for one area shelter or rescue organization at each of the team\u2019s nine Wednesday night home games in 2018, the start of a program River Bandits general manager Andrew Chesser sees expanding in the future.

\"There are so many worthy organizations in the Quad-Cities and the area that do such great work, and this is a way for us to recognize them and help draw attention to what they do in the community,\" Chesser said.

This season, a portion of the proceeds from that night\u2019s game as well as proceeds from a 50-50 raffle held during the game will be donated to the shelter or rescue organization that is being featured on that particular night.

The program will also provide the groups with an opportunity to bring animals up for adoption to Modern Woodmen Park and potentially find a home for some of them.

\"There are a lot of cool things that we can do with this,\" Chesser said. \"We have a lot of our regular weekly promotions from last year \u2014 the fireworks and giveaway nights, the beverage nights the family day on Sunday are returning \u2014 but Wednesday was a night we really haven\u2019t had one constant theme and this changes that.\"

Chesser said the River Bandits chose to focus on animal-related groups this season, but in the future he could see the program expanding to focus on other charitable causes in the region.

He mentioned military and veterans groups, organizations that focus on youths or groups that assist the underprivileged as potential themes in future seasons.

\"We\u2019re excited about the possibilities of We Care Wednesday,\" Chesser said. \"It\u2019s something new and something we can do to raise awareness in a lot of different areas.\"

The new We Care Wednesday program is part of the River Bandits\u2019 ongoing charitable efforts, which contributed more than $600,000 to Quad-City area organizations in 2017 and were recognized by Ballpark Digest as the \"best charitable works\" in Minor League Baseball.

ROCK ISLAND \u2014 Cyndi Jarvis of Davenport has lived through many years of severe illnesses that brought her down to 87 pounds at one point.

But now, she is improving and wants to share with the world her faith and how the entire ordeal has brought her closer to God.

\u201cI used to be so scared to try something new,\u201d she said. \u201cBut now I have such a hunger, I've got to put it down on paper.\u201d

That is exactly what she did. She created more than 20 works of art on canvas all in the past seven weeks.

Jarvis is among 20 local artists of the Catholic faith who will have their works of art on display and for sale this weekend during the 7th annual Art of Faith Sacred Show and Sale at St. Pius X Catholic Church, Rock Island.

Organizer Jill Rodts said the event promotes faith and the new evangelization by encouraging Gospel values to shine through art.

This year's theme is \u201cTriumph of the Cross.\u201d

Images portraying the beauty and holiness of the birth, public ministry, passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as well as any aspects of his life in the Catholic faith tradition are the guidelines for this show.

She said artwork runs the gambit from cookies and paintings to woodworking, cards and jewelry.

\u201cIt is pretty unique,\u201d Rodts said. \u201cWe all have great love for the Lord with unique expressions of God's love.\u201d

The keynote speaker is David Clayton, an artist, teacher, writer and broadcaster. He is currently provost of Pontifex University, an online Catholic education platform where he has designed their inaugural Master in Sacred Arts program. He will speak at 3 p.m. Saturday.

\"Your foundation is Christ as the cornerstone, and a general ordering of all aspects of life to these universal rhythms. Christ, Mass, and Divine Office,\u201d he said. \u201cThey build upon each other. grace upon nature. nature upon grace.\u201d

\u201cThis is kind of a way to let the world know we evangelize,\u201d Rodts said. \u201cWe can bring back our heritage, bring back to life the Gospel message. We want to share our vision of what God has done for us.\u201d

\u201cWith our art, we want them to feel something in the depth of their souls to encourage them,\u201d Jarvis said.

A roundup of items from Thursday:

REMEMBERING BUXTON: The Iowa House on Thursday commemorated the former community of Buxton, which was near Lovilia in Monroe County.

A coal-mining community in the late 1800s, Buxton had many African-Americans and immigrants from Europe and Australia. Buxton was notable because its businesses and organizations did not discriminate against any citizen on the basis of race.

Buxton, according to House Joint Resolution 104, stood \u201cas a model of cooperation and respect among people of diverse heritages and backgrounds.\u201d

The resolution encourages \u201call Iowans to recall the spirit of unity and harmony embodied by the people of the city of Buxton.\u201d

QUOTE OF THE DAY: \u201cAs legislators, we are tasked with separating the wheat from the chaff, and in this discussion it seems like there was a whole lot of chaff thrown into the wind here.\u201d \u2014 Rep. Gary Worthan, R-Storm Lake, commenting on a debate on HF 2255 regarding contraband in community-based correction facilities

TRENTON, N.J. \u2014 New Jersey lawmakers on Thursday advanced the latest version of a $300 million rate payer-financed rescue for nuclear plants along with additional renewable energy requirements expected to carry an unknown cost to residents.

A joint Assembly and Senate committee approved the legislation after a roughly four-hour hearing, the latest airing of a bill that goes back at least to December under former Republican Gov. Chris Christie's administration.

The legislation would offer Public Service Enterprise Group up to $300 million in assistance to keep its nuclear plants open. That would be financed by the state's utility ratepayers. But it also includes new renewable energy requirements that were added at the last minute, at the request of Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy.

Those changes include a requirement that 35 percent of the electricity supply come from renewable sources by 2035. That would be up from 3 percent currently.

The legislation has the support of PSEG and, crucially, Senate President Steve Sweeney, but there was vocal opposition at the hearing on Thursday.

\"I think we're in a good spot because everyone's angry,\" Sweeney said. \"Normally when everyone's angry you've hit a sweet spot.\"

Among those opposed are consumer groups like AARP as well as state environmental groups, including the New Jersey Sierra Club and Environment New Jersey.

New Jersey Sierra Club director Jeff Tittel called the renewable energy requirements a \"veneer\" and said he's concerned the clean energy would have to come from out of state.

\"The only thing green in this bill is the amount of money PSEG is going to make,\" he said.

PSEG President Ralph Izzo said the company has a responsibility to shutter the plants if they're not financially viable. That would carry with it the loss of thousands of jobs and a zero-carbon-emitting energy source.

Republicans opposed the bill or abstained from voting Thursday. GOP state Sen. Anthony Bucco summed up his opposition by saying the cost of the renewable energy components is too murky to win his support.

\"I'm concerned what it's going to cost our ratepayers since no one can put a handle on it,\" Bucco said.

The bill is scheduled for a vote in the Democrat-led Senate on Monday.

Problem gamblers may self-exclude from casinos in Iowa and Illinois, which bars them from collecting any winnings at sites in either state, thereby creating an incentive to stay away. The Illinois Gaming Board now is creating a new voluntary, confidential problem-gambling registry for video gaming.\u00a0

Enrollees will receive regular emails with links to problem gambling prevention and treatment resources, according to\u00a0a report published Feb. 16 in the Illinois Register. Both Illinois and out-of-state residents may add their name to the registry and cancel their enrollments at any time.

A new rule also permits representatives of licensed video gaming locations in Illinois to address players about responsible gambling. Once the online education course becomes available, video gaming business owners and their employees will be required to complete the training within 30 days.

Susan McAfoos, who runs Suzi's Video Poker & Slots in Moline and 17 other gaming parlors across the state, said, \"For the most part, people who gamble like their privacy. They typically do not share how much they have lost or what they have won.\"

If someone on a self-exclusion list in Illinois goes to one of the state\u2019s 10 casinos, they could be arrested and charged with trespassing. Any money they win during their visit is donated to one of three nonprofit organizations in Illinois that aims to help problem gamblers.

The\u00a0Illinois Council on Problem Gambling is one of those groups. Council Administrator Bill Johnson thinks it will be difficult for the state to monitor problem gamblers at video gaming establishments, unless they are required to scan their driver's license before playing.

\"It's a complicated process, but I know they\u2019re talking about it,\" he said.\u00a0

Johnson said the number of calls the council's 24-hour addiction center receives regarding\u00a0video gaming is growing exponentially.

\"You can't go to a convenience store or out to dinner without being confronted with the opportunity to play those video gaming machines,\" said Johnson, who lives near Peoria. \"The more people are exposed to something, the more opportunities they have to develop a problem.\"

The Illinois Video Gaming Act currently mandates that 25 percent of each terminal\u2019s $100 annual state licensing fee goes to gambling addiction services.

Anita Bedell, executive director of the Illinois Church Action on Alcohol and Addiction Problems in Springfield, said the video gaming industry has \"grown too fast.\" She wants the state to stop issuing licenses altogether and for lawmakers to study the impact video gambling has had on communities and families across the state.

\"It takes a while for the costs to come to light,\" Bedell said.

The growth of video gaming in recent years has stunted admission and revenue increases at casinos in Illinois, but the state is benefiting from the rise in competition.

Although casino income has dropped a combined 14 percent since 2012, overall gaming revenue has climbed almost 60 percent, according to an annual wagering report from the Illinois Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability.

The state\u2019s share of tax revenues from wagering reached $1.31 billion last year, a 7.9 percent jump from 2016. Under current law, Don Tracy, chairman of the Illinois Gaming Board, predicts this trend will continue.

\u201cVideo gaming is exploding due to no state limit or cap on location licenses,\u201d he said.

Tracy, a Springfield-based attorney, was appointed to his post in 2015 by Gov. Bruce Rauner. He said legislators passed the Video Gaming Act in part to support small businesses with liquor licenses.\u00a0

\"It does help, especially with that first year,\u201d said Jade Blick, who opened Jaded Java last March in downtown East Moline with her mother, Jacinda Sanders.

\"021518-BIG-STORY–VIDEO-GAMBLING-028\"

The duo did not plan on catering to gamblers until a representative from a video gaming terminal operator pitched the idea to Sanders, a full-time chiropractor. The nickname, \"Jackpot Lounge,\" now adorns the green awning above the entrance to Jaded Java.\u00a0

Blick said she prefers gambling at video gaming parlors over casinos, because she doesn't have to drive nearly as far to find one.\u00a0

Whether video gaming sites are becoming more popular than casinos, Tracy said, is a \"debatable opinion.\"\u00a0

Video gaming vs. casinos

The state\u2019s 10 casinos generated about $115 million more in tax revenue last year than video gaming, according to the wagering report.

Total revenue at Jumer\u2019s Casino & Hotel in Rock Island fell from $76.7 million in fiscal year 2016 to $72.1 million last year, about a 6 percent drop.

Both Rhythm City Casino Resort in Davenport and Isle Casino Hotel in Bettendorf opened land-based casinos in June 2016, sparking a combined 22.7 percent revenue increase last year. The arrival of these two long-awaited developments directly contributed to Jumer\u2019s decline last year, the wagering report shows.

Quad-City casino renue

In May 2016, Jumer\u2019s parent company, Delaware North, invested in the video gaming industry by acquiring GEM (Gaming & Entertainment Management, Illinois, LLC), then the third-largest machine operator in the state.

As Illinois' machine count quickly approaches 30,000, exceeding the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability's expectations for this year, the wagering report shows the rapid influx of machines is past its peak.

An average of 838 new terminals were activated each month between September 2012, and June 2014, according to the commission. That number dropped to 272 per month in fiscal year 2015, then to 249 per month last year.

Some new local ordinances that seek to cap the number of gaming licenses that are permitted in some cities is likely to impact the number of new machines across the state. Also a possible factor is the cities in Illinois that, so far, prohibit video gaming, including Chicago.

Gone are the days when Quad-Citians had to drive to one of three casinos in town if they wanted to play the slots.

\u201cIf I want to gamble, I don\u2019t have to leave my block,\u201d said Kenny Hakeman, who lives in the 600 block of East Moline\u2019s 15th Avenue, where three businesses have video gaming terminals. The retired union president was sipping a Coors Light at Jaded Java, a chic coffee shop/bar at 615 15th Ave., which has five slot machines.

As Hakeman was enjoying his beer, a crew was installing machines at Junior\u2019s Sports Bar & Grill, right next door.

\u201cWhen I finish this one,\u201d Hakeman said, jiggling his beer can, \u201cI\u2019m walking there.\u201d

Several nearby establishments and organizations, including American Legion Post 227, advertise electronic slots in downtown East Moline, one of the many pockets in the Illinois Quad-Cities where video gaming has exploded.

Fast growth

At the end of the state's 2017 fiscal year in July \u2014 about five years since Illinois legalized video gambling at restaurants, bars and other venues\u00a0\u2014 109 businesses in Rock Island County were licensed. In total, the county had 431 machines in operation at that time, according to the Illinois Gaming Board, which issues licenses.\u00a0

About 75 percent of them are in Moline, Rock Island, East Moline and Silvis, and they reeled in more than $15.8 million last fiscal year, sending millions into government coffers.

Gamblers' losses result in big wins for state and local governments. Called Net Terminal Income, the state gets 25 percent of the losses, and municipalities get 5 percent. License holders and machine vendors split the other 70 percent.

The state's portion of the money is collected electronically through the Illinois Gaming Board's Central Communications System. Machine vendors pick up their share on site.

In fiscal year 2013, Rock Island County\u2019s four largest cities had about one-third the number of machines they have today. Those 108 machines produced about $1.06 million in revenue compared with last year's nearly $16 million. In other words, revenue has dramatically outpaced the increase in machines.

The city of Moline had only seven licensed establishments with 26 machines that first year \u2014 fewer than the other three cities \u2014 that sent $6,314 in gaming revenue to the city. But Moline became the county\u2019s leader in video gaming the following year. This past fiscal year, Moline continued to lead the way with 34 licenses and 118 machines, supplementing the city\u2019s general fund with $167,621 in gaming proceeds.

\u201cIt took a long time for all these establishments to get up and running,\u201d said Keith Verbeke, Moline\u2019s finance manager. At the beginning of this year, the city had 35 licenses, many of which increased to the maximum five machines, taking the total to 137 machines.

To get a license, candidates must pass a thorough background check and have a city-issued liquor license. Each license is allowed a maximum of five machines.

Video gaming revenue in Illinois Quad-Cities

'Simple and friendly'

The corner of 41st Street and Avenue of the Cities in Moline has a clustered trio of gambling parlors, all operated by the same person.

Bettendorf-based entrepreneur Susan McAfoos rents storefronts in three neighboring strip malls near the high-traffic intersection. She gave the parlors their own names: Lucky 777\u2019s, Suzi's Video Poker & Slots and Spin 2 Win, which has yet to open.

Each offers players free snacks and soda and $1 and $2 cans of beer, which have become staples at standalone video gaming establishments in the area.

A white box truck is parked outside McAfoos\u2019 parlor at 4011 Avenue of the Cities. Suzi's logo is painted on the side of the truck, next to a red arrow that displays the message, \u201cPLAY HERE.\u201d

A box truck parked in the lot outside Suzi's Video Poker & Slots, 4011 Avenue of the Cities, Moline, advertises the popular gambling parlor, one of the busiest in the Illinois Quad-Cities.\u00a0

Near the entrance, a sign declares that video gaming is, \u201cA better bet than the boats,\u201d referring to casinos. The same claim is made on signs at many places that have video slots.

But that assertion does not necessarily hold water, said Mark Ostrowski, the Chicago-based administrator of the Illinois Gaming Board. Each machine, he said, has a certain limit of plays or spins throughout its lifespan, and the law requires each machine pay out at least 80 percent of the time. Terminal operators are the companies that own and maintain the machines, and they set the payout percentages. Most of the video gaming terminals, he said, pay out between 92 and 96 percent of the time, compared with most machines at casinos, which pay out between 90 and 95 percent of the time.\u00a0\u00a0

Each individual wager has a maximum of $2, with a maximum $500 payout per bet. Machines at casinos do not have those limitations, Ostrowski said.\u00a0

At Suzi's Slots next to the Sherwin Williams paint store in Moline, gamblers may test their luck at one of the five gaming terminals or wait for a machine to become available while relaxing on a leather couch, positioned in front of a wall-mounted flat-screen TV. Plants and artwork were added as decorative elements.

\u201cI try to keep the gaming rooms simple and friendly,\u201d said McAfoos, who holds 18 licenses throughout the state, including three in Moline, one in East Moline and one in Silvis.

The former hairstylist of 32 years said she wishes the state would raise the five-machine limit, because it would reduce her leasing costs. But the duplication in building expenses is not preventing McAfoos' brand from thriving in the Quad-Cities.

Her three most popular sites in Moline, East Moline and Silvis yielded a total of $1.7-plus million in net income this past fiscal year, out-earning every other establishment of its kind in the area, except for one. Suzi's Slots generated $617,643 in fiscal year 2017, second only to Q-C Mart\u2019s Gaming Laundromat at 4200 14th Ave., Rock Island, near the foot of the Talbot Memorial (Centennial) Bridge, which brought in $713,699.\u00a0

Setting limits

Despite the steady growth in revenues, some city leaders are regulating the market to slow or end its expansion.

The Moline City Council in November, for example, passed an ordinance that limits the city's number of video gaming entities to 30, preventing any new businesses from entering the field. Mayor Stephanie Acri cited an increasing number of applications and concerns from residents, regarding the \u201cdetriments of gambling\u201d for some.

\u201cThey\u2019re a significant revenue generator, but we want to make sure there isn\u2019t a specific feel of gambling in neighborhoods that may prohibit the success of other businesses,\u201d Acri said. \u201cIt\u2019s a new thing for us, so we\u2019re trying to figure out its place in the community.\u201d

Gambler: 'You've got to have discipline'

Not long after winning more than $6,000 at a slot machine at Jumer\u2019s Casino & Hotel in Rock Island, one gambler tried a video gaming parlor closer to home.

McAfoos, who is awaiting the state's approval of her Spin 2 Win location on 41st Street in Moline, said she approves of the city's video gaming moratorium because, it helps control over-saturation.

\u201cSo far, we have not had to deny any applications,\u201d Verbeke, the city\u2019s finance manager, said earlier this month. However, by last week, the city had denied two applications. Moline will not sign off on any new requests until the number of existing licenses drops below 30. Though 35 video gaming establishments currently are open, another four are pending and were in the works prior to the policy change.

One of those future developments is a restaurant/video gaming parlor owned by McAfoos, called Suzi\u2019s Chili Bowl & Slots, at 2727 Avenue of the Cities.

\"I'm still working on the menu,\" said McAfoos, who does not have plans for any more Quad-City locations at this time.

Similarly in Silvis, city officials do not plan to issue additional licenses anytime soon. Silvis has 10 active licenses with 45 machines, and City Administrator Jim Grafton wants to keep it that way.\u00a0

\"021218-BIG-STORY–VIDEO-GAMBLING-021\"

\u201cWe don\u2019t want to be known as a gaming community,\u201d he said. Business owners, he noted, have complained about competition.

\u201cCompetition\u2019s good up to a certain point but, at some point, it becomes saturated,\u201d Grafton said.

Silvis last granted approval earlier this month to Slugger\u2019s Pizza at 637 1st St.

In an effort to halt the development of standalone gambling parlors, the Rock Island City Council last February amended its ordinance, requiring applicants to prioritize alcohol and food sales over video gaming proceeds. By doing so, the ordinance discourages standalone parlors. The city currently has 17 licenses with 67 machines.

East Moline, which does not have any video gaming limits or stipulations in place, has 18 licensed establishments with 83 machines, said Megan Petersen, the city's finance director.

Gaming and golf courses

The prevalence of slot machines and the billboards that advertise them along a three-mile stretch of Avenue of the Cities\u00a0\u2014 between Suzi\u2019s in Moline and the Silvis border\u00a0\u2014 reminds at least one gambler of Las Vegas.

\u201cThey\u2019re popping up everywhere,\u201d said Joe O\u2019Donnell, who spent part of a recent morning at Ruby\u2019s, a standalone gaming parlor at 2001 5th St., Silvis. He had five machines to himself while he waited for his vehicle to be serviced at Reynolds Motor Co. in East Moline.\u00a0

State Sen. Neil Anderson, a Republican based in Andalusia, does not think this video-gaming surge was the intent of the Video Gaming Act, which passed in 2009.

\u201cI think it\u2019s going to reach critical mass,\u201d he said. \u201cThe ones that are doing good business will stick around, and the ones that don\u2019t will go by the wayside.\u201d

Anderson, who called the growth of tax dollars supplied by video gaming a \"good thing,\" went on to compare the gaming industry to that of golf courses.

\u201cThere are only so many golf courses you can put in a certain area before you\u2019re just sharing revenue, not creating new revenue,\" he said.

As of Feb. 9, there were 28,582 video gaming terminals at 6,403 locations throughout the state, the Illinois Gaming Board reports. About 140 municipalities, including Chicago and Rapids City in Rock Island County, prohibit video gambling.

Anderson, a Moline firefighter and paramedic, said he is not the gambling type.\u00a0

\"I work too hard for my money to give it away to somebody else,\" he said.\u00a0

'I'd rather come here'

Area gaming parlors typically are quieter, less crowded and more comfortable than full-scale casinos, according to gamblers.

\u201cI\u2019d rather come here than the casino,\u201d said O\u2019Donnell, the retiree at Ruby's in Silvis. \u201cThis is a lot more personable.\u201d

McAfoos, the woman behind the Suzi's brand, said her slots are busiest Wednesday through Saturday. Suzi's in Moline opens at 9 a.m. Monday through Saturday and noon on Sunday. It closes at 12:15 a.m. Monday through Thursday; 1:15 a.m. Saturday and Sunday; and 10 p.m. Sunday.

\"More people seem to be gaming as part of their night out,\" she said.

\"021218-BIG-STORY–VIDEO-GAMBLING-011\"

Other places, including Julie's Video Poker & Slots, 2346 53rd St., Moline, open at 7 a.m. every day. Visitors are greeted by a water feature, a pair of leather couches and an abundance of artful decorations. In addition to the basic offerings of complimentary chips, candy and soda, Julie's provides players with free coffee and fruit. A variety of beer and wine is available for purchase, too.

\"I go to any of them,\" said O'Donnell, who gives $50 to his son every time he wins at least $100. \"It just depends what I'm doing.\"

Trinity Brown, an employee at Ruby's, said she gambles, too, but she also enjoys watching other people play. She sees a lot of her regulars at the nearby Shell, 2101 Hospital Road, Silvis, which has five machines in a sectioned-off area of the convenience store.\u00a0

\"I'm a people person,\" Brown said. \"You'll see every kind of personality in here.\"

Too much of the burden for paying for a community college education has fallen to students and more of the cost should be shifted back to the state, Republican candidate for governor Ron Corbett said Thursday in Davenport.

Corbett, who is in the midst of a tour of the state's community colleges, visited Scott Community College's downtown campus, which still is under construction.

The challenger to Gov. Kim Reynolds in the GOP primary criticized the prospect of mid-year cuts to the colleges, arguing they undercut what the governor and others have said is the state's biggest economic challenge: A better-educated and skilled workforce.

\"If it's the biggest challenge facing the state that we need our citizens to have more than just a high school education, why are you making it harder for them by raising tuition at the community colleges, and that's what's going to happen with these mid-year budget cuts,\" he said in an interview Thursday.

Reynolds has proposed a $1.8 million cut for community colleges for the fiscal year ending June 30. The state Senate passed a bill earlier this month proposing a similar level of cuts.

Instead of reductions for community colleges, Corbett has proposed changes to some state departments, including eliminating the state Department of Management and the Board of Regents, shifting its responsibilities to a trustee system.

Pat Garrett, a spokesman for Reynolds campaign responded in a statement: \"Governor Kim Reynolds understands the important role community colleges play for Iowa's workforce \u2014 unlike her opponents, she's attended community college herself \u2014 and wants to go beyond short-term dollar amounts in favor of a holistic long-term approach. That's why her budget also includes new money on top of the already existing resources available for more workforce training, internships, and other reforms to help Iowans find opportunities that lead to careers.\"

Corbett, the former mayor of Cedar Rapids who also was Speaker of the Iowa House in the 1990s, met Thursday with Eastern Iowa Community Colleges Chancellor Don Doucette and Honey Bedell, the district's chief of staff.

Doucette told Corbett he believes policy makers value community colleges and that it does not take sides in political disputes. Still, he said mid-year budget cuts have had an impact and his budget hasn't changed much over the last five years.

\"I feel supported, just poor,\" he said. The college said if $1.8 million in state funding were to be cut, it would mean about $154,000 to the district. For now, Bedell said, it will not affect tuition but it likely will next year.

Corbett, in the interview, argued the burden of paying for community college costs has been shifted too much to students through tuition increases.

More of the cost, he said, ought to be picked up by the state. He said he'd raise state spending on community colleges by $4 million a year over four years. General state aid for community colleges has been around $200 million a year.

He also said there ought to be a review of the level of property taxes that community colleges are authorized to levy. \"I'm a big believer in shared responsibility,\" he said. \"The balance over the years has gotten out of whack.\"

Property taxes make up only a small part of community college budgets. The bulk is provided by tuition, fees and state spending, officials said.

DES MOINES -- The first steps toward a $1 billion reduction in Iowa\u2019s individual and business tax rates were taken Thursday morning by state lawmakers.

But the proposal may not get very far outside the Iowa Senate.

Republicans in control of the Iowa Senate advanced their proposed package of state tax reforms during a pair of committee hearings in a packed room at the Iowa Capitol.

\u201cThis is a significant bill,\u201d said Randy Feenstra, a Republican state senator and leader of the Iowa Senate\u2019s tax policy committee. \u201cFor 10 years, I have been in the Senate, and 10 years ago I ran and came down here for this reason. My passionate goal was to change the economic environment in Iowa.\u201d

The Senate proposal would:

* cut personal income taxes by 30 percent over two-and-a-half years,

* lower the top state income tax rate from 8.98 percent to 6.3 percent and the corporate income tax rate from 12 percent to 7 percent,

* reduce the number of taxed income brackets from nine to five and the number of corporate income tax brackets from four to two,

* phase out or eliminate some state tax incentive programs,

* and eliminate federal deductibility and permanently couple Iowa\u2019s tax system with federal changes.

\u201cThis bill creates dramatic economic development and it says that we\u2019re open for business,\u201d Feenstra said. \u201cWe want to be a business-friendly state. We want to be bold. We want to grow. ... More importantly, we want to give Iowans money back.\u201d

The state\u2019s nonpartisan fiscal estimating agency has not yet calculated the impact the Senate proposal would have on Iowa residents, businesses and the state\u2019s budget. By procedure, the agency will make those calculations once the proposal becomes an official Senate bill.

Feenstra said the state revenue department projects the Senate Republican proposal will reduce state revenues by roughly $1 billion annually starting in the state budget year that begins July 1, 2019, and that \u201cmiddle-class earners\u201d will have their state taxes lowered by an average of $1,000.

Spokespeople for interest groups representing businesses, economic development and tax reform spoke in favor of the proposal at the hearing.

Other speakers, and Senate Democrats, expressed concerns that the lost state revenue as a result of the tax cuts will mean less state funding for other state budget priorities like public education, public safety, and health care for low-income and disabled residents.

\u201cThis is, in my opinion, the height of fiscal irresponsibility. Reducing the state of Iowa\u2019s revenue by $1 billion will have a catastrophic consequence to public education, public safety, and managed health care,\u201d said Matt McCoy, a Democratic state senator. \u201cWe are taking a drastic, dark and disastrous path.\u201d

Some speakers at the morning committee hearing expressed concerns with the reduction or elimination of tax incentive programs. Representatives for solar energy companies said cutting their $5 million program would stunt solar projects, and others said a reduction in the state\u2019s historical preservation program would hurt economic development.

Democrats on the committee also raised concerns with the pace at which the sweeping legislation is being advanced. The bill was introduced Wednesday, then passed out of subcommittee Thursday morning and again by the full tax policy committee Thursday afternoon.

The proposal received a lukewarm response in the Iowa House, where Speaker Linda Upmeyer said Republicans there will work off Gov. Kim Reynolds\u2019 tax reform proposal.

Reynolds\u2019 plan would reduce taxes by $1.7 billion over six years and also would change the rate structure and eliminate federal deductibility.

\u201cRight now we have a bill in the House that we are working on. The governor\u2019s tax reform bill is assigned to a subcommittee,\u201d Upmeyer said. \u201cI anticipate there will be things in the Senate bill that ultimately could become part of that.\u201d

The thoughts

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz on the versatility of Samson Evans and Tyrone Tracy, who will begin their Hawkeye careers as wide receivers but could factor into things at running back: \u201cThey\u2019re very talented athletes who bring a lot to the table. We\u2019ll start them out at receiver. It\u2019s an area where there are opportunities for young players.\u2019\u2019

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz on Evans, who quarterbacked Prairie Ridge to back-to-back Illinois 6A state championships: \u201cThe day after the Nebraska game a year ago, I was kind of cruising through the kitchen, had the TV on and the Illinois (state championship) games were on. I watching it, wondering who is this guy running through Springfield Griffin? I was captivated. His profile reminded me of Ed Hinkel, a quarterback that had a funny number on. Probably not a quarterback (in college), but a good football player whose team always seems to win.\u2019\u2019

DJ Carton

Coach: Curtis Clark

Sport: Basketball

Grade: 11

School: Bettendorf High School

Coach\u2019s reason for nomination: \"The unseen hours this young man has put in for years has elevated his game to an elite level,\" Coach Clark says. \"He is a self-driven athlete who understands the many ways to improve and use all of his resources. I have thrown a lot of information at him this season and he's always been receptive to coaching. His speed in practice and in drills doesn't change from his game speed, he is a true competitor regardless of the situation. DJ has an infectious personality and has a knack for making teammates smile away from competition.\"

How does the athlete train for this sport? \"I train at least five days a week with my trainer Jordan Delp working on little things to improve my game.\"

What advice do you have for someone interested in trying this sport? \"If you want to be good at something it all starts with mentality. You can have all the talent in the world but without that killer instinct it doesn\u2019t mean anything.\"

Athlete\u2019s plans after high school: \"My plan is to play at the Division 1 level and hopefully continue playing after my college education.\"

After-thoughts from Iowa\u2019s 86-82 loss to Minnesota:

--Say what you want about this Iowa team; it\u2019s entertaining. After scoring 19 points in the first half (a season low in Big Ten games), it scored 63 in the second half, the most by an Iowa team in at least 28 years. They have scored 50 or more in the second half seven times this season and have 120 after halftime in two meetings with Minnesota. The Hawkeyes scored 22 points in the last 96 seconds Wednesday, 19 of those by Isaiah Moss. The sophomore guard had 14 points in 61 seconds at one point.

--Moss seems to barely have a pulse in some games, but he gave a very vivid demonstration of why Iowa coach Fran McCaffery has been so patient with him. He finished with 32 points, seven more than his previous career high, and has now scored 67 points in three career games against Minnesota. If Moss can ever start playing with some level of consistency, he\u2019ll be an All-Big Ten player. That may be a big if, but Wednesday\u2019s effort has to give him a load of confidence.

--While Moss was amazing, his backcourt mate, Jordan Bohannon, was a disappointment. He was thoroughly outplayed by Minnesota senior Nate Mason, who breezed past him several times on the way to easy baskets. McCaffery said after the game that\u2019s why he played Maishe Dailey so much at the point; he felt he would do a better job defensively against Mason, who scored 33 points. Bohannon played only 21 minutes, his second lowest total ever in a Big Ten game, and was held scoreless for only the second time in his career. The only other time he failed to score was last season against Michigan State.

--Just as inexplicable as the Hawkeyes\u2019 amazing finish was their horrible start. They committed eight early turnovers, seven in a span of nine possessions, allowing Minnesota to score 19 straight points and open a 20-point lead. It wasn\u2019t any one player. It was a total team effort. Those eight turnovers were by seven different players. What\u2019s also amazing is they only had four more turnovers the rest of the game.

--Every team plays better at home than on the road, but the disparity continues to be much more pronounced with Iowa than with other teams. It trailed by 17 or more points at some point in all nine of its Big Ten road games this season. It actually won at Illinois \u2014 its only road victory of the season \u2014 after trailing by 20 points in the first half and it nearly did it again Wednesday. In all, the Hawkeyes have trailed by 20 or more in nine games this season and by 17 or more in 14.

--This really was a prime opportunity for the Hawkeyes to get a road win. They hadn\u2019t played since Saturday afternoon while Minnesota had to play an overtime game on the road Monday night. The Golden Gophers, who had lost nine games in a row, had to be leg weary. But they looked livelier than the Hawkeyes in the first half.

--Besides Moss, another player who had a breakout performance was backup center Ryan Kriener. He only played 14 minutes but scored a career-best 15 points and became the go-to guy in the middle of the second half. He scored all 15 in the second half over a span of about 8\u00bd minutes.

--Minnesota pretty much wrapped up the No. 11 seed in the Big Ten tournament by winning. The only way it doesn\u2019t get it now is if Illinois beats Purdue on Thursday and Rutgers on Sunday. Iowa could still end up with any of the bottom three seeds. If it beats Northwestern on Sunday, it will almost certainly be the No. 12 or 13 seed and would play the winner of that Illinois-Rutgers game. If the Hawkeyes lose to Northwestern, they would be the No. 14 seed and play Minnesota again if Illinois beats Rutgers, or they would be the No. 13 seed and play Rutgers if the Scarlet Knights beat the Illini.

DES MOINES \u2014 Eli Loyd narrowed the gap considerably, but wasn't able to overtake the top-ranked wrestler in the state at his weight class.

After losing by major decision and getting pinned in under a minute by Drew Bennett of Fort Dodge earlier this season, the Pleasant Valley sophomore battled Bennett for six minutes Saturday night.

Bennett, a Northern Iowa recruit, used three first-period takedowns to knock off Loyd 9-4 in a 132-pound Class 3A final at Wells Fargo Arena.

Loyd never could get on the attack against Bennett, who had been third each of the past two seasons and is ranked 14th in the country by InterMat.

Still, it has been quite a start to Loyd's high school career.

He already has 100 career victories and two top-four state finishes.

\"I'm hanging with the best guys right now, not just in the state but in the country,\" Loyd said. \"It feels great. I feel like I have lots more to improve on.\"

Bettendorf finished with 43 points.

Freshman Griffin Liddle (285) and senior Mason Morris (145) earned fifth-place medals. Sophomore Aiden Evans (106) was sixth while junior Will Jefferson (138) snatched seventh and senior TJ Cole (126) finished eighth.

Morris lost his consolation semifinal in the final seconds but regrouped with a 2-1 win in the placing match.

\"I just knew I couldn't end this season and end my high school career with a loss,\" Morris said. \"I had to go out and win.\"

Morris was quite emotional afterward, knowing his time in a Bettendorf singlet was over. He finished as a two-time state place winner.

\"It was a great experience,\" Morris remarked. \"I learned a lot of lessons, met a lot of great people, and it just improved me as a person and a wrestler.\"

Liddle beat Iowa City West's Guy Snow in his final bout, 4-2. The freshman finished with 42 wins and built some confidence for the offseason.

He's the first Bettendorf heavyweight to medal at state.

\"It is pretty exciting, but I'd like to do better,\" Liddle said. \"I've got to keep getting faster, stronger and more physical. I need to keep the same mentality and not slow up.\"

The lives of two Bettendorf High School filmmakers have been anything but quiet for the past year \u2014 and the buzz is getting louder for their new movie \u201cA Quiet Place.\u201d

Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, of Los Angeles, graduated from Bettendorf High School in 2003, and from the University of Iowa, with degrees in communication studies, in 2007. They hope they can make it home to watch the movie when it opens in theaters April 6 (they\u2019ll see it beforehand at its New York premiere). It will be shown opening night March 9 at SXSW.

The trailer, which is being shown widely on television and in theaters, was shown during the Super Bowl.

Paramount Pictures bought the script, written by Beck and Woods. The film stars John Krasinski, who also directs. He is recognized for his starring role in television\u2019s \u201cThe Office.\u201d His co-star is Emily Blunt, \u201cThe Girl on the Train.\u201d The two are married in real life, and play a married couple onscreen. Michael Bay, known for blockbusters such as \u201cTransformers,\u201d is one of the producers.

Beck said he and Woods worked on many projects that didn\u2019t get a green light for a long time. But \u201cA Quiet Place\u201d had \u201ca release date and a green light two months after it sold.\u201d

The script came from an idea the two had when they were growing up in Iowa.

\u201cThe key to the movie is silence,\u201d he said. \u201cThat really stemmed from our days in college at the University of Iowa.\u201d They studied silent movies and considered how filmmakers told their stories with visuals, and wondered about making a movie with a silent film aesthetic in a modern-day setting.

At first, they wrote the script as a proof of concept. \u201cWe did a 15-page script to see if we could do it,\u201d Woods said. \u201cWe were so infatuated with the idea we couldn\u2019t help ourselves.\u201d

The movie has minimal dialogue, he said. \u201cWe really consider it to be a silent film,\u201d Woods said.

The movie, which can be considered a thriller or horror film, \u201cis anchored in family dynamics,\u201d Beck said. \u201cIt\u2019s not just about scaring an audience.\u201d

The Internet Movie Database (www.imdb.com) describes it: \u201cA family lives an isolated existence in utter silence, for fear of an unknown threat that follows and attacks at any sound.\u201d

In regard to their early influences, they give credit to Rodger Wilming, their Bettendorf High School instructor who showed films in class, Beck said.

\"Bryan Woods and Scott Beck were the same two young men in high school as they are today: highly talented, completely determined and bound for ever bigger things,\" said Wilming, a language arts teacher at Bettendorf High School. \"I have never doubted nor been surprised by their success. Quite frankly, they have inspired me as I have watched them succeed time and time again.\u00a0

\"I am certain that the best is yet to come for and from these two filmmakers,\" Wilming said.

Ethel Hegeman, who taught multimedia classes, also \u201cwas a voice of encouragement,\u201d Beck said.

The movie was shot in New York, with a farm landscape as its environment.

Both return two or three times yearly to the Quad-Cities to visit friends and family, including their parents Dennis Woods, of Bettendorf and Lynn Reading-Woods, Davenport; and Ken and Linda Beck, of Bettendorf.

Their next movie, \u201cHaunt,\u201d which they wrote and directed, is a horror movie in the post-production phase that www.imdb.com describes: \u201cOn Halloween, a group of friends encounter an 'extreme' haunted house that promises to feed on their darkest fears. The night turns deadly as they come to the horrifying realization that some nightmares are real.\u201d

\u201cHaunt\u201d is being produced by Eli Roth, who directed \u201cHostel\u201d and the upcoming \u201cDeath Wish.\u201d

Roth, Beck said, \u201calways wanted to find a script like this.\u201d Roth helped make the characters more three-dimensional, he said.

Beck and Woods established Bluebox Films as a production company banner in 2001. Bluebox has partnered with companies including Paramount Pictures, Lionsgate, Sony, MTV, Groundswell Productions, Davis Entertainment and Broken Road to produce feature films, shorts, commercials and television content.

MINNEAPOLIS \u2014 In the Iowa basketball team\u2019s most recent game, on Saturday, it couldn\u2019t have possibly started any better from an offensive standpoint.

On Wednesday night, it couldn\u2019t have started any worse.

The Hawkeyes dug themselves a huge hole with perhaps their most disastrous stretch of the season and they never fully recovered despite an exhausting late run, going down to their sixth straight defeat in an 86-82 loss to Minnesota at Williams Arena.

Minnesota, which played an overtime game on the road on Monday, summoned just enough energy to snap a nine-game losing streak of its own and virtually assure itself of the No. 11 seed in the upcoming Big Ten tournament.

Iowa (12-18, 3-14 Big Ten) will settle for the 12th, 13th or 14th seed even if it manages to defeat Northwestern on Sunday in its regular-season finale.

The Hawkeyes very nearly rallied from a 20-point deficit on the road for the second time this season as they scored 63 second-half points. Sophomore guard Isaiah Moss poured in 19 points in the final two minutes to make things interesting.

Moss, who finished with a career-high 32 points, knocked down a 3-point field goal with three seconds remaining to trim the margin to 84-82, but Davonte Fitzgerald finally finished off Iowa by making two free throws with 2.1 seconds remaining.

Nate Mason scored 33 points in his final home appearance for the Gophers, 19 in the second half. Dupree McBrayer added 16 points, and Jordan Murphy collected 10 points, 10 rebounds and five steals.

Iowa, which made its first 10 shots from the field in a 2-point loss to Indiana on Saturday, went nearly seven minutes without scoring early in the game. The Hawkeyes committed eight turnovers while getting off only four shots in that stretch.

The Golden Gophers (15-15, 4-13) capitalized by scoring 19 consecutive points to open a 22-2 margin.

\u201cThe biggest thing is we weren\u2019t playing hard enough. We needed more fight,\u2019\u2019 Iowa center Ryan Kriener said in a postgame radio interview. \u201cThe way we battled back shows we did that.\u2019\u2019

Minnesota then missed its next 11 shots and went 7\u00bd minutes without scoring itself, allowing the Hawkeyes to chop the deficit down to 22-13.

The Golden Gophers recovered, however, to make it 31-19 at halftime. It\u2019s the fewest points the Hawkeyes have scored in the first half of a Big Ten game this season.

They responded by scoring more points in the second half than in any game in recent seasons.

Tyler Cook, scoreless in the first half, finally got going a little bit early in the second half and Ryan Kriener came off the bench to give the Hawkeyes a big lift. They cut the deficit to 45-40 on a Kriener jumper midway through the half, but Mason scored the next two times down the court.

The Hawkeyes stayed within 10 points of the Gophers most of the rest of the way, but never got any closer until the final seconds. McBrayer seemed to have put them away with a 3-point play that made it 74-60 with 1:42 remaining.

But Moss scored 19 points after that, including 14 points in a span of 66 seconds, while Minnesota made 12 of 18 free throws down the stretch.

\u201cThat was scary,\u2019\u2019 Minnesota coach Richard Pitino said. \u201cThey can do that. I think we probably contributed to that a little bit. We were really tired. But for 38 minutes we played very well.\u2019\u2019

In addition to Moss\u2019 career-best effort, Luka Garza added 16 points and Kriener netted a career-high 15, all in the second half.

Cook finished with only six points, and sophomore Jordan Bohannon failed to score for the first time this season.

EDGINGTON \u2014 The Alleman Pioneers had a plan in mind heading into Wednesday's Class 2A Rockridge Regional game against the host Rockets.

That plan worked to perfection in a dominating 45-27 win for the Pioneers in their first postseason game of the season.

\"The first time we played Rockridge in the regular season we allowed them to dribble into our defense, and when we collapsed they were able to kick it out to open shooters,\" Alleman coach Kyle Murray said. \"We won the game, but we gave them too many good looks.

\"Here (Wednesday) we were able to get up into them with our guards and make everything difficult for them. Brendan (Hird) and Sam (Mattecheck) were really good from the start of the game. Getting Sam back is huge because he can play some defense.\"

Alleman's defense kept the Rockets (10-16) from ever getting into their offense. Rockridge made just one of its first 15 shots and were 3-for-20 at halftime as Alleman (14-13) built a huge 24-7 lead at halftime.

\"They came out really physical on defense, and we didn't react very well,\" Rockridge coach Andy Saey said. \"I thought we were really ready to go, but maybe we were a little scared.

\"That first time we played they called the hand checks and bumps, but that wasn't the case in this one. That's just the way it is, and I told our guys we had to adapt to the situation.\"

While the Alleman defense was very good, the offense was equally efficient by using its big men inside. On almost every possession early in the game, the Pioneers made sure they got a touch in the paint. Leading the way early were Will Mihm and Andrew Barrett. Later, Chase VanDerGinst became the man.

\"The big thing is all three of us can go inside or outside,\" Barrett said. \"Will hit a big 3-pointer early, and Chase does so much all over the court. I wanted to try to get my teammates going early, then I got more aggressive with my offense.\"

Barrett finished with 17 points, 10 rebounds and three blocked shots. VanDerGinst added 10 points and six rebounds; and Mihm wound up with six points and seven rebounds.

\"Andrew is such a versatile guy,\" Murray said. \"He made three 3s and then went inside and got some big rebound baskets. I have told him so many times that he needs to have the mindset that he is the best player on the court, and that is what he had in this one.

\"Will and Chase do so many little things. Then, we get guys like Hunter Hodge and Collin Rogiers coming in and getting some rebounds.\"

The Pioneers will play Mercer County in Friday's regional final.

\"This will be a different game from (Wednesday),\" Barrett said. \"They like to run and score. We are looking forward to it.\"

Freshman Jenson Whiteman led Rockridge with eight points.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. \u2014 Iowa overcame a nine-point deficit in the final three minutes of regulation Wednesday and rallied for a 77-67 women\u2019s basketball victory in overtime at Rutgers.

Kathleen Doyle forced the extra session, nailing a 3-point shot with nine seconds remaining in regulation to tie the game at 59-59.

The Scarlet Knights scored the first two points in overtime, but Iowa followed by pounding the ball inside to Chase Coley and Megan Gustafson for a run of nine straight points that led the Hawkeyes to their sixth straight win.

\"We showed a tremendous amount of fight,\" Iowa coach Lisa Bluder said. \"It didn't look good for a while, but we never quit.\"

Coley tied the game at 61-61 with 3 minutes, 49 seconds remaining before Gustafson put Iowa ahead to stay, taking a feed from Coley to score on a lay-in with 2:34 remaining.

Gustafson recorded her 25th double-double of the season, finishing with 27 points and 14 rebounds, while Coley contributed 20 points and Doyle added 14 for Iowa (22-6, 10-5 Big Ten), which won in overtime on the road for the second time in its last three Big Ten road tests.

Tyler Scaife led the Scarlet Knights (19-10, 7-8) with 30 points.

Entering the game needing one point and three rebounds, Gustafson became Iowa\u2019s single-season scoring and rebounding leader during the first quarter.

The junior broke the record previous scoring record of 672 set by Cindy Haugejorde during the 1979-80 season when she scored Iowa\u2019s first points of the game on a lay-up at the 8:57 mark of the first quarter.

She broke her own single-season rebounding record of 343 later in the quarter on the defensive end as Iowa built an early 13-4 lead, which Rutgers overcame, opening a 25-19 halftime edge.

Purdue 64, Illinois 51:\u00a0Despite a double-double from Alex Wittinger, the Illini fell short in their quest for their first Big Ten win of the season Wednesday.

Wittinger scored 16 points and grabbed 13 rebounds and Cierra Rice chipped in 12 points, but the Illini (9-20, 0-15) couldn't overcome significant edges on the glass and the free throw line.

Purdue (18-11, 9-6) out-rebounded Illinois 42-31 and went 21-28 on free throw attempts compared to the Illini, who were 3-5.

Oklahoma 80, Iowa State 71: An 11-0 run early in the third quarter expanded Oklahoma's lead from three to 14, and Iowa State could never pull its way back into the game in a Big 12 loss Wednesday.

Emily Durr led the Cyclones (12-15, 6-10) with 22 points, and Bridget Carleton chipped in 19.

Vionise Pierre-Louis led Oklahoma (15-12, 10-6) with 23 points and a game-high 11 boards.

There remains a divide in the community on whether the city of Davenport should approve rezoning for Palmer College of Chiropractic's campus improvements.

A public hearing was held Wednesday night during the City Council's committee-of-the-whole meeting where the first reading of an ordinance to rezone more than 37 acres into a planned institutional district was discussed.

Chancellor Dennis Marchiori said Palmer's 10-year master plan included about $50 million in investments that would help make the college more competitive for attracting students.

Marchiori also mentioned that investment by others helped spur Palmer's decision to reinvest and in turn hoped that its plan would inspire others.

\"We also think we can be an inspiration to others,\" Marchiori said. \"As we extend our efforts across Brady Street and into that area we have slated for an athletic field, we think it will also inspire others in that area to have similar investments in their properties.\"

Having already invested in the R. Richard Bittner Athletic & Recreation Center, Marchiori said student housing, athletic fields and green space were next on the school's list.

When Palmer asked the Historic Preservation Commission to approve the demolition of 12 historic properties, it was asked to provide its larger vision and apply to be rezoned as a PID.

Before rezoning was approved by the Plan and Zoning Commission, the Civil Rights Commission voiced concerns about whether it would result in a disparate impact.

Disparate impact is when policies appear to be neutral, but in reality impact a protected group disproportionately.

The city contracted with Mosaic Community Planning to conduct a study in which it was found that Palmer's plans would not cause a disparate impact.

Two experts, including one whose law review article was cited in the report, found there to be flaws in the study.

\"There are significant racial/ethnic disparities between the student and non-student segments of the (planned institutional district) population,\" Calvin Bradford wrote in notes provided to the Davenport Civil Rights Commission. \"That is, the PID represents two distinct impacts for two very different populations. The Mosaic report fails to develop a separate minority percentage for the current non-student population that is the only segment of the population negatively impacted by the PID.\"

Despite the experts' objections, the Plan and Zoning Commission unanimously recommended the rezoning to the City Council.

During Wednesday's public hearing, Olivia Williams, an affordable housing scholar and professor at Augustana College in Rock Island, said Davenport has an affordable housing crisis based upon a report from Institute for Community Alliances.

The 2017 report found there were only 423 units with rent of $500 or less despite there being a need for more than 7,000. Palmer's plans would remove some affordable housing stock and replace some of it with student housing.

\"There's no plan for Palmer to contribute to affordable housing to replace those units or to contribute funding to affordable housing outside of the PID,\" Williams said.

Dennis Platt, who was part of an effort to collect signatures for a petition, said he was worried about renters who are not notified about Palmer's plans. Notices about the rezoning went to property owners, not the occupants.

Platt said residents who might be displaced are owed help finding alternatives to housing if they are unable to find a place to live.

\"I'm not so confident about the nuts and bolts about who gets caught in the middle if this thing happens too quickly,\" Platt said. \"I think people need a fair notice about what's going on and why and what they need to do to be prepared.\"

Scott Tunnicliff, director of the Hilltop Campus Village, an area that includes Palmer, spoke in favor of the PID because he said it constituted meaningful investment.

\"Reinvestment and creative reuse of existing properties go hand in hand with historic preservation,\" Tunnicliff said.\"I would commend the city and council for recognizing as a priority the need for widespread urban core reinvestment.\"

Alderman Mike Matson, 7th Ward, asked for more information on how many people would be displaced and what the city was doing to help them find affordable housing.

As she did during a Civil Rights Commission meeting, Alderwoman Rita Rawson, 5th Ward, spoke of the need for urban revitalization.

While Rawson called Palmer's plans \"wonderful,\" she said that housing issues could be resolved if the city created overlay districts for its neighborhoods.

The first reading of the ordinance will be voted on at the Feb. 28 council meeting. For the rezoning to be approved, it will require approval of three readings.

Chrishawn Orange, Nolan Ebel and Dylan Sortillo have been the key three in many games for the Augustana men's basketball team this season.

On Wednesday, three were honored for leading the Vikings to a fourth-straight CCIW title by being selected for All-CCIW honors. Juniors Orange and Ebel were tabbed to the eight-player first team and Sortillo earned his second straight selection to the eight-person second team.

Veteran coach Grey Giovanine, who was named co-coach of the year (for the ninth time) along with Illinois Wesleyan's Ron Rose, was happy for his standout trio.

\u201cWe were the only team in the league that had three players recognized,\u201d said Giovanine, whose 20-5, 12-4 vikings shared the crown with IWU. \u201cDylan Sortillo has been a part of more wins in this league than anybody else in this league. It's the first time in 44 years that a guy has been part of four consecutive championships.\u201d

The last team to accomplish the four-peat was the Vikings from 1971-74.

Wheaton's Aston Francis was voted the Fred Young Most Outstanding Player and was a unanimous first-team selection along with Carthage's Brad Kruse, IWU's Brady Rose and North Central's Alex Sorenson. Rounding out the first team with Orange and Ebel were Carroll's Joel Heesch and NCC's Connor Raridon.

Orange, a first-team pick last season as well, has been Augie's most consistent player throughout the season and leads the Vikings, averaging nearly 32 minutes per game.

\"Everybody has their own agenda,\" said Giovanine of Orange not be a unanimous pick. \"We're awfully pleased to have two players on that first team and Dylan being recognized on the second team again.\"

Orange is the CCIW\u2019s ninth-leading scorer with an average of 15.7 points per game in league play, he also ranked eighth in minutes played with 32.62 per game, 11th in 3-point percentage (.408), 12th in assists (2.75 apg) and 14th in free throw percentage (.728). On the season, Orange\u2014who recently became just the seventh junior in school history to surpass 1,000 career points\u2014leads Augustana in scoring (15.9 ppg) and steals (23) and ranks second on the team in field goal percentage (.489) and three-point percentage (.451).

Ebel was the Vikings\u2019 leading scorer in conference play with an average of 16.4 points per game, which ranked seventh in the league. He also finished seventh in the CCIW in field goal percentage (.528), 3-point percentage (.435), steals (1.00 spg) and assist-to-turnover ratio (1.48). He was fifth in assists (4.06), 13th in 3-pointers (1.69 per game) and minutes played (30.63 mpg) and 15th in free throw percentage (.723). Overall this season, Ebel is averaging 15.4 points per game on shooting percentages of .508 from the field, .471 from three-point range\u2014both of which lead the team\u2014and .765 from the foul line. He also has a team-high 96 assists.

A second team selection for the second straight year, Sortillo leads Augustana this season with 54 3-point field goals. He is third all-time for the Vikings with 170 career 3-pointers. In league play this year, he averaged 11.9 points (18th), 3.00 assists (9th), 2.13 three-point field goals (7th), shot .466 from beyond the arc (5th) and had an assist-to-turnover ratio of 2.18 (5th). Sortillo, who is just eight points away from 1,000 for his career is averaging 12.5 points and 3.5 rebounds per game overall and is second on the team with 67 assists. He\u2019s shooting .422 from three-point range and .774 from the foul line.

Flood stage is 12 feet.

The 14.7-foot number is lower that the 15-foot crest that had been forecast earlier Wednesday by the\u00a0National Weather Services\u2019 North Central River Forecast Center in Chanhassen, Minnesota.\u00a0

Despite the expected crest being lowered, there remains the danger of ice jams along the river that could cause the waters to rapidly rise, said National Weather Service meteorologist Andy Ervin.\u00a0

Ervin saidt th crest was lowered because there is now less water flowing out of the Green River into the Rock River.\u00a0

\"It's a few thousand feet per second that was in the original forecast that is now out of the forecast,\" he said.\u00a0

However, if anyone sees an ice jam on the river they should contact authorities immediately, Ervin said.\u00a0

\"Ice that is moving is not an ice jam,\" he said. \"Ice that is not moving needs to be reported.\"

Earlier in the day, meteorologist Tim Gross of the National Weather Service, Davenport, said there was not a lot of confidence that river would have reached the 15-foot mark.\u00a0

It's the\u00a0 ice on the river that has made predictions difficult, Gross said.

For instance, Illinois 78 near Prophetstown, Illinois, was closed part of the day Wednesday due to flooding. \u201cThat\u2019s because of the ice,\" he said. \"Right around Prophetstown, there are sheets of ice.\u201d

The Rock at Moline was at 11.6 feet as of 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. It was expected to reach its 12-foot flood stage about midnight, and reach near 13 feet about noon today.

However, all that is subject to change.

\u201cIt all depends on when the ice comes down the river,\" Gross said. \u201cAbrupt fluctuations are possible due to changing river ice conditions.\u201d

Simply, he said, when the ice moves from one site upstream, the river level there drops. As the ice proceeds downstream, the river levels at those sites rise.

Gross said the River Forecast Center takes into account precipitation forecasts for the next 48 hours, so the snow and rain that is expected today already is calculated into the river level forecasts.

But more rain is expected Saturday, Gross said. If the area gets too much rain, that could create other problems on the Rock River as well as push the Mississippi River at Lock & Dam 15, Rock Island, closer to its 13-foot action stage.

Forecasters will have a better idea Friday morning of how the system due in early Saturday is likely to track.

Gross added that while there is frost in the ground down to about a foot, the top eight inches of soils in the region are showing signs of no frost, which has helped recharge the moisture of the upper layers of the soil. However, that area of the soil also is saturated, so too much rain will runoff into the rivers and streams, causing them to rise.

SEX-OFFENDING PRISONERS: The head of Iowa\u2019s Department of Corrections said he expects a group of stakeholders, experts and others will be convened later this year with an eye on bringing recommendations to the Legislature next session to deal with the placement of sex offenders who have completed their sentences and are eligible for release.

Department of Corrections Director Jerry Bartruff told members of the Senate Human Resources Committee that the best option for a facility to place such offenders would be a former women\u2019s unit at the state prison in Mount Pleasant, but it would entail a financial investment to \u201cretrofit\u201d the unit into a nursing home. He said another possibility would be at the prison campus in Clarinda, but he didn\u2019t think that location would be a good fit.

There now are sex offenders who have completed their prison sentences but are being housed at the state correctional facility at Oakdale after numerous attempts to place them elsewhere have proved unsuccessful, he said. There are 885 prison inmates over age 55 in Iowa, Bartruff said, and 253 are serving sentences for sex-related offenses.

MILLER WANTS CLOUD ACT: Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller has joined a bipartisan group of state attorneys general in urging Congress to clarify how U.S. law enforcement pursuing domestic criminal investigations can access electronic data stored overseas. In a letter signed by 35 attorneys general, the group urged Congress to pass the Clarify Lawful Overseas Use of Data, or CLOUD Act.

The CLOUD Act would update and amend several provisions of the Stored Communications Act. Under the act, a law enforcement agency may obtain a warrant to search a person\u2019s email or online account if a court finds probable cause that the account contains evidence of a crime. The warrant requires a service provider to provide the data to law enforcement.

State and local law enforcement agencies routinely use SCA warrants to investigate crimes ranging from drug trafficking to murder to child sexual exploitation. Recently, however, some service providers have argued that courts cannot enforce an SCA warrant when data that law enforcement seeks is stored on a foreign server. The providers and others have argued that requiring compliance with an SCA warrant in this situation would be an extraterritorial application of a domestic law and would raise privacy and international comity concerns.

The dispute has spawned litigation across the country, including a case that is pending in the U.S. Supreme Court. Miller said the letter urges Congress to pass the CLOUD Act as \u201can important step toward resolving this dispute.\u201d

INTERSTATE 80 STUDY: Officials with the Iowa Department of Transportation are conducting a study of Interstate 80 and are seeking public comments. The study will be developed and released through a series of technical reports that identify existing I-80 conditions, the way the system is performing, short- and long-term issues, and strategies to improve the route. Each report will be accessible online as it becomes available: www.iowadot.gov/interstatestudy. The third and final online meeting now is available to view on the website. To view the meeting, navigate to https://iowadot.gov/interstatestudy/public-meetings or select the \u201cPUBLIC MEETINGS\u201d tab on the home page, and then select \u201cMeeting 3.\" The meeting will be available to view on the website throughout the planning study\u2019s duration.

MEDICAID PRIVATIZATION: Four Democratic legislators expressed concerns that legislators and other Iowans weren\u2019t included in a closed-door meeting Reynolds administration officials planned to hold in Des Moines on Wednesday with providers of Medicaid services. Iowa Medicaid Director Michael Randol told a legislative panel recently the purpose of the meeting is to identify and discuss payment issues that Iowa health care providers are having with managed care organizations that are overseeing Iowa\u2019s Medicaid program.

The four legislators \u2014 Sens. Amanda Ragan, D-Mason City, and Liz Mathis, D-Hiawatha, and Reps. Lisa Heddens and Beth Wessel-Kroeschell, both from Ames \u2014 issued a statement indicating the meeting should be open to the public because problems with Medicaid affect all Iowa taxpayers, more than 600,000 Medicaid members and health care providers across the state. However, they say requests by legislators to attend the meeting have been denied.

Brenna Smith, spokeswoman for Gov. Kim Reynolds, said DHS officials have engaged in extensive outreach statewide to improve Medicaid, including holding at least 39 public meetings in the past year.

\u201cDirector Randol was hired to lead the Medicaid program, and the governor trusts his decision to bring these stakeholders together at this meeting to discuss their specific concerns,\u201d Smith said. \u201cThe governor is interested in solutions for Iowans, not political rhetoric. Director Randol is coming up with solutions for Iowans.\u201d

QUOTE OF THE DAY: \u201cWe\u2019ve been working together for 100 years, and we\u2019re going to keep working together for the next 100. So we\u2019ll figure it out.\u201d \u2014 President Michael Richards on the Board of Regents discussions with lawmakers over funding for the current year and fiscal 2019.

Boys basketball

Fulton 47, Riverdale 32:\u00a0Entering its postseason opener Wednesday night, the Riverdale boys' basketball team had not lost a game since the fifth of January.

The last team to beat them was Three Rivers West Division rival Fulton, which finished a game behind the conference champion Rams after falling to Riverdale in the rematch a few weeks ago. In the semifinals of the Class 2A Fulton Regional, the Steamers gained sweet revenge, ending Riverdale's 10-game winning streak.

Buoyed by a double-double of 12 points and 15 rebounds from 6-foot-5 senior center Tyler Bruggenwirth and a 20-for-21 showing from the free-throw stripe, fifth-seeded Fulton repeated its early January outcome by sidelining the fourth-seeded Rams, 47-32 at a jammed-to-capacity Stan Borgman Court.

Riverdale's senior duo of Brett Murphy and Blake DeClercq each netted 10 points.

Princeville 43, Galva 40, OT: Cooper Hoxworth scored 20 points, but it wasn't enough as the Princes topped the Wildcats in overtime on Wednesday in a regional semifinal matchup.

Hoxworth scored Galva's only three points of the extra session as the Wildcats were eliminated on their home floor.

Princeville will face top-seeded Annawan in Friday's regional final.

Polo 62, Prophetstown 39: Fifth-seeded Prophetstown could not hold up to fourth-seeded Polo, as the Marcos advanced to a regional final matchup with Sterling Newman.

Wethersfield 49, Roanoke-Benson 48: The Geese survived and advanced Wednesday, edging Roanoke-Benson at the Varna Regional.

Third-seeded Wethersfield will face second-seeded DePue in the regional final on Friday.

Bureau Valley 64, West Carroll 47: Jacob Dunk scored 16 points, but Bureau Valley used a big second half to advance to the regional final.

The teams were tied at 26 at the break, but Bureau Valley outscored West Carroll 20-9 in the third quarter and expanded the lead further in the fourth.

Several years ago, Bettendorf Rotary president Tim Lane had the choice of staying in downtown Bettendorf or relocating.

He met with city leaders, who assured him that they had a plan, and put his faith in the direction Bettendorf was headed toward.

\"That was the best decision I could have ever made,\" Lane said. \"For the last nine years, I've had a front row seat as the city of Bettendorf has executed that plan almost flawlessly.\"

Lane's optimism was echoed Wednesday as Mayor Bob Gallagher gave the annual state of the city address in which he praised Bettendorf's financial condition and the major development projects that will serve the city for the foreseeable future.

\"We have an operating levy in 2017-2018 of $5.02 for $1,000 valuation,\" Gallagher said. \"That is the lowest operating levy in the state of Iowa. We do more with less than anyone else.\"

Three weeks ago, the city grew concerned about a $1.3 million shortfall that resulted in early retirement packages being offered to 29 employees.

Gallagher mentioned that the city was facing obstacles with stagnating revenue sources including sales tax, gaming revenues and property tax rollbacks,

Despite having to remedy its financial situation, Gallagher said the city's five-year personnel plan would allow it to avoid raising its current $12.50 levy.

In terms of development, Gallagher touted the rise in both residential and commercial projects.

Not only were there 140 new homes built in Bettendorf, but the average property value was also rising.

It would not be Bettendorf without mentioning all the projects in the downtown area as well as the \"game changer\" now known as the TBK Bank Sports Complex.

Gallagher said the complex would be open by the first weekend in May to host a baseball tournament with more than 100 teams.

The onsite entertainment complex is set to open Memorial Day weekend and a volleyball bar will be opening on Father's Day weekend.

Adjacent to the complex, there are plans for two hotels, four restaurants and a strip mall.

In addition to the excitement around the sports complex, Gallagher also mentioned that Strategic Behavioral Health's new $15 million, 72-bed hospital will break ground on April 12.

The facility will be named Eagle View Behavior Health Center.

Focusing on the downtown area, Gallagher showed the crowd the flyover video the city is now advertising on its website that shows what the area could look like in a few years.

The projects in the video included Ascentra Credit Union's new headquarters, the I-74 bridge, the jetty park behind the Isle Casino Hotel Bettendorf and The Bridges lofts, replacing the Twin Bridges Motor Inn.

A new plaza in front of city hall is in the works with the completion anticipated in time for the Bettendorf's Fourth of July parade.

DES MOINES \u2014 The Iowa House approved legislation Wednesday making clear that a practice used by many Iowa businesses to deliver pay statements to employees is indeed legal.

A \u201ccode modernization\u201d bill was how floor manager Rep. Jarad Klein, R-Keota, described House File 2240 that says employers can deliver pay statements to employees electronically.

Current law says that \u201ceach regular payday, the employer shall send to each employee by mail or shall provide at the employee\u2019s normal place of employment during normal employment hours\u201d a statement.

However, the law also makes mention of employers giving employees access to an electronic statement as long as the employees have \u201cfree and unrestricted\u201d access to a printer to print out their statements.

Still, there was some question if the law allowed employers to send paycheck information electronically, for sample, through email.

The situation came to light when a credit union was planning to switch from paper statements to electronic delivery through a secured server, explained Labor Committee Chairman Dave Deyoe, R-Nevada. Its legal counsel discovered it was not permitted.

Also, a payroll firm told lawmakers there was a need to clarify the law so it could deliver electronic statements to Medicaid recipients.

\u201cThere are probably other things like this that people are doing that aren\u2019t legal,\u201d Deyoe said, \u201cso we\u2019re just trying to modernize the law.\u201d

His House colleagues agreed, voting 98-0 to send the bill to the Senate for consideration where a companion bill, Senate File 2339, has been approved by the Labor and Business Relations Committee.

The House also voted 98-0 on a bill modernizing how people may pay traffic fines.

Representatives approved HF 2193 to give the Judicial Branch two years to develop an opt-in system for people to pay uncontested traffic fines by a text message.

The court system can use its existing electronic pay program or work with a vendor to develop the system, floor manager Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-Marion, said. People may continue to pay fines by mail or the courts\u2019 website.

The House also:

Voted 96-0 to approve HF 2196, a new section in Iowa Code for violations of the federal \u201chands-free\u201d requirement for drivers with commercial driver\u2019s licenses. Currently, commercial drivers stopped for using cellphones or other electronic devices that are not \u201chands-free\u201d are charged with distracted driving under Iowa law. That is not accurate enough for federal purposes, Rep. Gary Worthan, R-Storm Lake, said. The federal government assesses points against those license holders for violations.

The change also will allow Iowa to keep drawing down $35 million in federal funds, said Rep. John Forbes, D-Des Moines.

Approved HF 2195 98-0 to synchronize the terms of members of the Transportation Commission with the state\u2019s July 1 to June 30 fiscal year. Currently, new members join the board in May, just a month before being asked to approve a five-year transportation plan, Rep. Gary Mohr, R-Bettendorf, said.

DES MOINES \u2014 Bernie Sanders says he has no doubt the Democratic Party is moving in a more progressive direction, thanks in large part to his unsuccessful presidential campaign.

\u201cIt would be hard to argue that the Democratic Party is not moving to a more progressive direction, is now beginning to address the issues working people are struggling with,\u201d the independent senator from Vermont said during a phone call this week.

While he didn\u2019t get the Democratic presidential nomination and win the presidency, Sanders, 76, believes he and the people who answered his call for political revolution have changed the course of the party.

\u201cWe ended up writing the most progressive platform in the history of the Democratic Party,\u201d said Sanders, who will bring the current iteration of that revolution to Cedar Rapids with a 7 p.m. Friday rally at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

That platform set the agenda for discussions of Medicare-for-all, single-payer health care, a $15-an-hour minimum wage, paid family leave, pay equity for women, tuition-free college and medical marijuana that are unfolding in Congress and legislatures.

Sander laughed before answering when asked if that means he won.

\u201cIn terms of the battle of ideas, yes, we did win,\u201d said the self-described democratic socialist.

\u201cWhat we were able to show was that people throughout this country are sick and tired of working longer hours for low wages while seeing almost all of the new income go to the top 1 percent,\u201d Sanders said. \u201cThey are unhappy about seeing their kids potentially having a lower standard of living than they did. In the wealthiest country in the history of the world, that should not be happening.\u201d

His campaign raised the nation\u2019s consciousness on those issues. Now he\u2019s working with the Not One Penny campaign, touring the country to call for repeal of the GOP\u2019s federal tax cuts. That's not likely to happen until Democrats take control of Congress, Sanders conceded.

\u201cSo this meeting is not just to talk about Republican tax legislation, but the fact it is insane to give tax breaks to billionaires and have Speaker Paul Ryan talking about cutting Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare and education,\u201d Sanders said. \u201cThose are not the priorities of the American people.\u201d

The point, he said, \u201cis to get people involved in the political process and demand change in national priorities.\u201d

Registration for the rally is available on Eventbrite.com. From the home page, search “this week” for Bernie Sanders.

DES MOINES \u2014 The Iowa Board of Regents plans to raise tuition just once by no more than 4 percent for the upcoming academic year, its president told lawmakers Wednesday.

The regents likely will arrive at a more specific number when they meet Thursday in Ames and will finalize increases for the state\u2019s three public universities this spring, President Michael Richards told the House Appropriations Committee.

In capping a resident undergraduate tuition hike at 4 percent, the regents are stepping back from earlier discussions that called for 7 percent increases annually at Iowa State University and the University of Iowa, and 5 percent at the University of Northern Iowa, that were based on the assumption of no state funding increase in fiscal 2019.

Resident undergrad tuition is $7,486 at the UI and $7,456 at UNI and ISU, according to the regents. A 4 percent increase would be about $300 and a 3 percent increase would be nearly $225 a year.

In the past two years, regents have set tuition rates but then increased it closer to the academic year in light of lower-than-expected state funding, Richards said.

That scenario is repeating this year as lawmakers are eyeing midyear budget cuts to deal with revenues that are falling short of projections. Gov. Kim Reynolds has proposed a $5.1 million deappropriation from the regents in the current fiscal year. The House GOP proposed an $8.1 million cut and Senate Republicans called for a $14.6 million cut.

Like state revenues, family income has been down, too, Richards said. \u201cThat\u2019s why there hasn\u2019t been as much tax.\u201d

So although the university presidents would like a larger funding increase, \u201cour job is to come up with what the families in the state of Iowa can live with,\u201d hew told reporters.

To give students and their families more certainty, the regents have committed to a one-time tuition increase this year, he said.

\u201cWe don\u2019t want to come out with a number and then another add-on number,\u201d Richards said. \u201cWe\u2019re doing it once.\u201d

That makes the regents\u2019 request for $12 million in additional financial aid money essential, Richards and the university presidents told legislators.

The UI and ISU have asked for an additional $5 million apiece and UNI requested $2 million more for need-based financial aid.

Total resources matter, UI President Bruce Harreld told lawmakers. Universities with more resources per student \u201chave higher outcomes.\u201d

\u201cRevenue directly impacts quality,\u201d UNI President Mark Nook added.

And ISU President Wendy Wintersteen told lawmakers \u201cfunding for higher education should not be seen as a cost\u201d but as an investment.

Tristan King is an eight-year veteran of the ECHL. He won a Kelly Cup championship with the Allen Americans in 2016.

So it's not surprising that when the Quad-City Mallards needed somebody to step up in the absence of leading goal-scorer Sam Warning, King rose to the occasion.

Since Warning signed a professional tryout agreement with the AHL's San Jose Barracuda, King has scored eight goals and added two assists and the Mallards are 7-3-0.

\"I think it\u2019s always tough to lose guys like that; Warns is a good player and that happens every year,\" King said. \"Sometimes, if you lose a leading scorer, it makes each and every guy feel they need to work that much harder to make up for the slack, or sometimes it just ends up working out better for lines. Warns is obviously a big part that is missing, and we have guys picking up the slack.\"

King, 27, has had to battle through a lot this year, but now he's at his best when the team needs him the most, trying to push the Mallards out of their deepest depths and maybe, just maybe, battle for a playoff spot as they play three road games against the Indy Fuel this weekend, starting tonight.

\"I think now, some may say it\u2019s too little, too late, but there\u2019s always a chance, and that\u2019s the way we\u2019re playing right now,\" he said. \"This could be my last season, this could be a lot of guy\u2019s last seasons, and we\u2019re playing that way. We\u2019re never going to play another season of hockey in our lives, and I think that\u2019s showing on the ice.\"

The Minneapolis native thought he was going to be playing this year with the Orlando Solar Bears, with whom he signed with in August in order to be closer to his wife Brooke's family. He was in Florida, with his in-laws on the gulf coast town of Crystal River, when Hurricane Irma hit.\u00a0

On Sept. 21, he was traded to the Mallards after the Solar Bears exceeded the ECHL veteran limit. It was all pretty overwhelming.

\"I\u2019d been through that hurricane, and it felt like it took so much just to sign with Orlando over the summer,\" King said. \"I know it\u2019s a business, but to get a call like that randomly that they traded me, I was pretty frustrated.\"

King contemplated retiring, but after talking it over with his family, decided to report to the Quad-Cities, but not until after helping Florida recover after Irma. He arrived three days into the Mallards' training camp.

\"I didn\u2019t want to just quit and say I\u2019m not going to report and wait for a trade,\" King said. \"I just want to play hockey. It doesn\u2019t matter where it is, I just want to enjoy my last year and have as much fun as I possibly can and go out the right way.\"

King had a nice debut, scoring a goal in the opener and adding an assist the next night. Through the first 11 games he had two goals and six assists. The Mallards were 6-6-0 and in third place in the division. Then things started to go south. King had just three points in his next eight games, then missed six games with an injury.

When he came back, the Mallards had lost eight straight games, a skid that would reach 13 and knock the Mallards down to the bottom of the league standings. The team was in disarray, firing team president Bob McNamara and director of hockey operations Jon Piche.

It wasn't a good environment.

\"I think we had those moments where we were worrying about other stuff not related to hockey or what we thought was related to hockey, and we weren\u2019t really focusing on what the issue would have been at the time on the ice,\" King said. \"We were just trying to point fingers, and that\u2019s not the way a team should be. If somebody makes a mistake, everybody picks them up. You don\u2019t point your finger at them.\"

The Mallards snapped their streak with a win over the Indy Fuel just before the all-star break. But not much later, King's grandmother-in-law passed away. He missed six more games to be with Brooke and her family during that time.

The Mallards were 2-3-1 in his absence but when King returned, he came back a noticeably different player with a different perspective on the game.

\"It was almost one of those moments where, playoffs, whether we make it or not, whether we win every game the rest of the year, whatever happens, this could be my last year playing, but that was her last breath she ever took,\" he said. \"Am I really living up to my potential? Am I really doing everything I can to help the team?\"

Since then, King is leaving it all out there for the Mallards, doing anything and everything to help the team win.\u00a0

Last week, he was battling the stomach flu, something that has hit the Mallards hard over the last few weeks. He scored two goals against Kalamazoo Friday, then pushed hard to go with the team to Fort Wayne the next night.

Head coach Phil Axtell turned him down, not because of his play but simply because he didn't want to risk any more players getting sick on a cramped bus.

So King missed the game in Fort Wayne but then scored a goal the next day in a home win over Toledo. He now has 11 goals and 14 assists in 37 games.

\"He's found another gear, and it's perfect timing because we needed somebody to do that,\" Axtell said. \"He's showing that he's been there and been through it. There's highs and lows of every season for every team, and he's pushing through.\"

King talks like this might be it for him, but isn't quite ready to say this is his last season. He's planning to become a firefighter after his hockey career is finished, but he knows the love of the game will make it hard to finally walk away.

If this is the last year for King, he'll close the book on a career that has included more than 100 goals and that championship run two years ago. Even if this season doesn't end in playoffs, King is proud of the fight the Mallards are now showing.

\"I can hang my hat on this season and even if we don\u2019t make playoffs, I can say we ended the right way,\" he said. \"We weren\u2019t a team that started hot and blew it and ended up hating each other. We are a team that started off really rocky, all pulled together, and if we keep going the way we have been and the way I know we will, that\u2019s something special you can say you\u2019ve been a part of.\"

For now, it appears Arconic Davenport Works' popular eagles are caring for one egg.

Nearly a week after Liberty laid the pair's first egg, Arconic spokesman John Riches said he has only seen the single egg. The nest is located on the Riverdale plant's property near the Mississippi River.

The first egg is believed to have been laid the evening of Feb. 15.

The adult eagles, named Liberty and Justice by their fans, have captured attention around the globe through Arconic Eaglecam. The web camera first was installed in the fall of 2010 by then Alcoa Davenport Works and it has been streaming live footage for the public to see since early 2011.

It\u2019s taken some time, but Will Carius is starting to feel like himself on the basketball court again.

A sophomore on the basketball team at Northern Michigan, the Pleasant Valley graduate has topped 17 points in five of his last six games and carries a string of nine straight double-digit scoring performances into this weekend\u2019s games for the Wildcats.

Carius underwent back surgery after averaging 10.6 points in the 10 games he played during his freshman season with the NCAA Division II program.

\"It\u2019s been a long process to get back to where things are feeling good, but I\u2019m there,\" Carius said. \"I\u2019ve had knee surgeries in the past, but those were nothing compared to the time it took to get back from this.\"

The 6-foot-7 forward found help in the Quad-Cities last summer.

Carius\u2019 recovery included working with Jordan Delp, a former Augustana basketball standout who works as a personal trainer and operates the Pure Sweat Basketball organization in Moline.

\"He worked to get me back to moving the way I need to work to be successful at this level,\" Carius said. \"I\u2019m able to get up and down the court the way I need to and deal with the pressure that puts on my body.\"

His work included doing ball handling drills with another Quad-City area athlete currently playing at the Division II level, Missouri Southern guard C.J. Carr of Rock Island, and putting in individual work with current Nebraska player Isaiah Roby of Dixon.

\"The drills tested me, built me back up and put me in a position where I have been able to come back here this season and compete,\" Carius said. \"Working against so many great players was what I needed, and Delp did a great job of putting together a program that worked for me.\"

Carius noticed a difference when he returned to Northern Michigan last August and began working out with teammates in preparation for the current season.

It\u2019s been a season of growth for both Carius and his team.

The Wildcats have qualified for the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference postseason tournament for the first time since 2007, building an 11-7 conference record as part of a 14-11 season.

\"We\u2019re playing well together, and it\u2019s making a difference,\" Carius said. \"Last year, we were a really young team, just getting to know each other. I think we now understand our roles better, and that is making a difference.\"

He said reaching the conference tournament is considered a milestone for the program.

\"The community is getting excited about things, and it\u2019s a great atmosphere to be in,\" Carius said. \"We\u2019re all working to see where this can lead.\"

Carius has seen steady improvement as well.

Playing a stretch four role that positions him both inside and out and allows him to maximize mismatch opportunities, Carius has started all 25 games this season and averages 12.1 points and five rebounds per game for Northern Michigan.

Third on the team in scoring, his recent work includes a career-high 22-point effort against Northwood and topping 20 points three times in the Wildcats\u2019 six games this month.

\"I\u2019m comfortable with where I\u2019m at right now, and with that, I\u2019ve had some success, which has led to some confidence, which has led to more consistency. One thing has been leading to another,\" Carius said.

Mostly, it has led to feeling good again as he plays the game.

\"Working as hard as I did to get back, you don\u2019t take anything for granted,\" Carius said. \"Every day is an opportunity, and I\u2019m doing what I can to make the most of it and appreciate being back on the court and playing the way I know I can.\"
