Couponing isn\u2019t for everyone, but often when people see what I\u2019ve gotten for free or really cheap, they want to know more about how to do it. Though it\u2019s not the only way I save money, I do save a lot with couponing. So if you\u2019re interested in learning how to do it, this and upcoming columns will help you get started on your own couponing journey.

Learn about coupons.

\u25cf There are two types of coupons. First, manufacturer coupons that are put out by the product's manufacturer that you can use at any store that accepts coupons, and second, store coupons that are put out by the store that you can only use at that store. Most stores allow \"stacking.\u201d This simply means that you can use one manufacturer coupon and one store coupon per item.

\u25cf Read the fine print and follow the terms of the coupons. Some companies have a limit of four coupons per household, per day, and others limit to only one coupon. Also, take note of the expiration date. It\u2019s important to know that you cannot copy coupons, even printable ones, because they all have unique barcodes, and copying them is illegal. Abide by the fine print so companies do not make it even harder to use coupons.

\u25cf Pretty much every coupon states \"limit one coupon per purchase.\" This is confusing to a lot of people, including cashiers. Per purchase means that you can use one coupon per item, not a transaction. A transaction is each time you literally pay for your whole purchase and you get a receipt from the cashier. You can never use more than one manufacturer coupon on one item.

\u25cf Pay attention to the text of a coupon, not the picture. Companies are probably going to put the bigger, more expensive items on the coupon hoping that\u2019s what you\u2019ll get. But as long as you follow the wording and size specifications, you may be able to use it on a number of items.\u00b7Let's say the largest size of body wash is 22 ounces and costs $4.99, but the 12 ounce bottle is $2.99. If you have a $1 off a 12 ounce bottle or more coupon, you could get the 22 ounce bottle for $3.99. Or, you could get the 12 ounce for $1.99. If you have 2 coupons, you could buy 2 bottles for total $3.98 and have 2 more ounces than if you had used only one coupon on the 22 ounce. This is the better deal.

Start collecting and organizing coupons.

\u25cf Begin keeping the Sunday paper inserts. The common inserts you will see are Red Plum (RP), Smart Source (SS) and Procter & Gamble (P&G).

\u25cf There are also lots of coupons available on the Internet. Coupons.com is a popular site to begin. Check it often as new coupons get loaded on a regular basis. Smartsource and Redplum also have printable coupons. Many companies also put coupons on their own websites.

\u25cf Are you looking for a coupon for a particular product? Google a coupon database. There are people who do the hard work for you. You type in the product and they will list where to find every available coupon for that item. But remember, all insert coupons are regional, so unfortunately, you may not get all the hot insert coupons you read about.

\u25cf Decide how to organize your coupons. I personally keep my newspaper inserts whole and use a coupon database to find the coupon I need before I go shopping. It will tell me which insert they are in and what date; for example, SS 8/27/17. Other people choose to cut out all the coupons and keep them in an organized coupon binder with plastic sheets. I tried this, but found that it was just too time consuming for my needs, so I only cut when I know I\u2019m using it on my shopping trip. I use a small accordion file to put coupons in that I have printed or cut and take that to the store with me.

Knowing the basic couponing rules and organizing your coupons is a good place to start. Once you know all this, then you can start venturing into the best ways to utilize those coupons for maximum savings.

In the 1980s, a device came along called the Color-C-Lector. Some were a bit skeptical about the information given on what colors to use, but many quickly found it worked. That aside, there is another system that works, which can be called \u201cshades of grey.\u201d This system is everything from white to black.

I\u2019ve fished this system for many years, but the late-TJ Stallings of TTI-Blakemore brought it back to mind after reading one of his blogs a few years ago regarding what fish generally see in color.

TJ wrote: \"We all know the theory 'dark colors for dark conditions.' The other train of thought is 'opaque colors in dark conditions' or 'transparent colors in light conditions.' Set those theories aside a while.

\"Let us think like a fish for a few minutes. OK, you are fish. You are swimming along just off the bottom. Your eyes are on top of your head, so you gaze upward constantly. The barometric pressure is steady. You are a happy, yet hungry fish.

\"You see something. The sun\u2019s position behind this critter reveals little at first. Then you see a constant flash of the Road Runner blade. It appears to be breathing as it makes its descent. Then the white body becomes visible. The lure changes direction and begins to swim parallel to the bottom. Your fins expand and you charge the lure.

\"Wake up. Are you back? What did you learn? Fish look up all the time. The shad, shiners, and minnows they eat, have a white belly. Fish are naturally trained to seek white bellies.

\"The theory has repeated itself so many times personally, it makes us chuckle. We will throw a half-dozen colors; switch to white and boom, fish on.\"

While TJ prefoundly touched on the productivity of white, I am going to talk about everything as it darkens. As was said, white is a good color, and can catch many fish, but take a look at the natural food, such as shad and bottom crawling creatures. Most have black somewhere on their bodies, and especially the back. Also, most shad and minnows have grey on the sides.

Because of this, when fish are feeding on minnows and shad, I like to use white, pearl, white/grey, smoke, and shad patterns such as Road Runner\u2019s Sushi Reality Shad or Natural Forage Baits\u2019 Lil Killer in smelt, which have a dark grey on the back. This goes for fairly much every species, but especially black bass, white bass, crappie and bluegill.

A favorite for a plastic worm, like the 4\u201d B-Fish-N Ringworm, is black with a white tail. I was introduced to the success of this color in the '80s when I was fishing bass tournaments. I\u2019ve found it to work extremely well for flipping/pitching, as well as worked with a lift and drop when casting. From all indications, the contrast of the two allows the very active white tail to work to its maximum to tempt fish to strike. Another thing that I will sometimes do is team the worm with a white Blitz Finesse Jig, but normally the Lil Killer works better with the jig when used in a swimming retrieve.

Along the same line in plastic worms is one that is completely black, especially with a ribbon tail, or one that has a full side of black.

For swimbaits and jerk worms/shad the aforementioned minnow type colors are good, but I also like adding an Oyster color, which again, is a type of greyish/blueish/pearl color that puts out a great shad type flash.

By varying the size, a curl tail grub is a great producer for all species. The grub can be found in sizes from 1\u201d to 6\u201d in length. I mainly use 2-, 3- and 4-inch. While I have several colors, just three, white, black and smoke, with smoke being the coverall, could do all of the work. In fact, if there was only one lure available; the curl tail grub could cover it all with a regular jig head like a B-Fish-N H2O; Road Runner or Casey\u2019s Runner heads, which adds the flash of a blade; and a Blitz Finesse Jig.

When using a spinnerbait or swimming jig almost 100 percent of the time, I will use white, white/chartreuse, white/chartreuse/blue, oyster, pearl or shad skirts. Trailers used for the jigs are white, pearl, green/pearl, smoke or oyster.

Many times when the fishing is tough, one of the \u201cshades of grey\u201d worked with the right lure can save the day.

The next time you go fishing, think about all the options from white to black, and turn these options into a successful day of fishing.

\"TRUMP

In this photo from Sept. 21, 2017, distributed on Friday, Sept. 22, 2017 by the North Korean government, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reads a statement in response to the speech of U.S. President Donald Trump at the United Nations in Pyongyang, North Korea. In an extraordinarily direct scolding, Kim called Trump \"deranged\" and said he would \"pay dearly\" for his threats, a possible sign of further imminent gun tests. Independent journalists were not allowed access to the event portrayed in this image distributed by the Korean Central News Agency via Korea News Service.

Trump, North Korea exchange threats

North Korea\u2019s top diplomat said Thursday his country may test a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific Ocean to fulfill leader Kim Jong Un\u2019s vow to take the \u201chighest-level\u201d action against the United States, according to a South Korean media report.

Meanwhile at the United Nations in New York, President Donald Trump added economic action to his fiery military threats against North Korea, authorizing stiffer new sanctions.

Last weekend, Trump mocked Kim on Twitter, referring to the North Korean leader as \u201cRocket Man,\u201d a jab that he repeated in an address to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday. In that speech, Trump threatened the \u201ctotal destruction\u201d of North Korea and told the crowd of world leaders \u201cit is far past time for the nations of the world to confront\u201d Kim.

At school, digging brings hope, frustration

Almost 300 dead in Mexico quake

Survivors were still being pulled from rubble in Mexico City as rescue operations continued late in the week, spurring hope among desperate relatives gathered at the sites of buildings collapsed by a magnitude 7.1 earthquake.

Mexico\u2019s federal police said several people were lifted out of the debris of two buildings Thursday. Rescuers removed or broke through slabs until they found cracks that allowed workers to wiggle through to reach the victims, then lift them to safety. The city government said 60 people in all had been rescued since the quake hit at midday Tuesday.

Still, with the hours passing, fewer of the living were being found, and the official death toll closed in on 300 in Mexico City and several nearby states.

Puerto Rican residents face uncertain future

Maria ravages Puerto Rico

Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico on Wednesday, flooding towns, crushing homes, killing at least two people and leaving millions of people on the island facing the prospect of weeks and perhaps months without electricity. Maria\u2019s death toll across the Caribbean, meanwhile, stood at about 20 late in the week.

Still no power

Hundreds of thousands of customers in Florida were still without power more than a week after Hurricane Irma hit. Electric companies in the state were coming under fire from residents, legislators and local officials about how long it was taking to get power back on.

Hurricane tax

Mayor Sylvester Turner on Thursday proposed a one-time increase in Houston\u2019s property tax rate to help pay for mounting expenses stemming from Harvey.

Kimmel: The senator lied to my face

The health care debate and the 'Kimmel debate'

Sen. John McCain declared his opposition Friday to the GOP's last-ditch effort to repeal and replace \"Obamacare,\" dealing a likely death blow to the legislation and, perhaps, to the Republican Party's years of vows to kill the program. It was the second time in three months the 81-year-old McCain emerged as the destroyer of his party's signature promise to voters.

\"I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried,\" McCain said of the bill, co-written by Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, his best friend in the Senate, and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana. \"Nor could I support it without knowing how much it will cost, how it will affect insurance premiums, and how many people will be helped or hurt by it.\"

McCain, who is battling brain cancer in the twilight of a remarkable career, said he could not \"in good conscience\" vote for the legislation. That all but ensured a major setback for President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and appeared likely to deepen rifts between congressional Republicans and a president who has begun making deals with Democrats out of frustration with his own party's failure to turn proposals into laws.

Jimmy Kimmel said Tuesday that Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., \u201clied right to my face\u201d by going back on his word to ensure any health care overhaul passes a test named for him. Kimmel said a health care bill co-sponsored by Cassidy fails the \u201cJimmy Kimmel test,\u201d a term coined by the senator. Cassidy told the host on his show that allowing insurers to cap the amount spent on an individual\u2019s health care was unnecessary.

Iran nukes

President Donald Trump has determined how he wants to approach the Iran nuclear deal \u2014 which he has called the worst agreement ever negotiated by the United States \u2014 but has not told even his top national security advisers what his decision is.

Russia probe continues

Special counsel Robert Mueller\u2019s team of investigators is seeking information from the White House related to Michael Flynn\u2019s stint as national security adviser and about the response to a meeting with a Russian lawyer that was attended by Donald Trump Jr.

Tensions in Spain as planned independence vote nears

A regional policeman removes a protester during a Tuesday march against a search for propaganda supporting Catalonia\u2019s independence referendum at the private postal service company Unipost in Terrassa, Spain. The Spanish government has vowed to stop the planned Oct. 1 vote that it calls illegal. But Catalonia\u2019s leaders have pushed ahead even after Spain\u2019s Constitutional Court suspended the law passed by Catalonia\u2019s regional parliament, which called for the referendum.

Big moments from the Emmys

Emmy winners

The dystopian series \u201cThe Handmaid\u2019s Tale\u201d was crowned best TV drama last weekend at the Emmy Awards, also winning best drama writing and directing and earning Elizabeth Moss a best actress statuette and Ann Dowd a best drama supporting actress award. \u201cVeep\u201d and \u201cSaturday Night Live\u201d also were big winners.

The scary part is that Davenport Central running back Jatoviay Hill could have had more yards rushing.

On Hill's record-breaking night against Davenport North, his first carry was a 71-yard touchdown that was called back by a penalty. Instead, Hill will have to settle for the most prolific, single-game rushing performance in Quad-Cities Metro history.

The senior rushed for 407 yards on 12 carries and scored five rushing touchdowns in one half as the Blue Devils defeated the Wildcats 58-0 at Brady Street Stadium on Friday night.

Hill did not play in the second half because Central was leading 42-0 at that point. He broke Zach Minch's school and MAC record for a single-game performance. Minch had 371 yards rushing against North on Sept. 14, 2012.

Hill had three TD runs of at least 80 yards, including a 98-yard touchdown run late in the first quarter. His other TD runs were from 80, 27, 83 and 20. Hill said he had special motivation coming into the key district game against the Devils' city rivals.

\"It's my mom's birthday so this feels great to do it for her,\" Hill said. \"My offensive line did a great job of making the holes and my intensity was way up for my mom. I wanted to do it for my mom.\"

Hill said he knew that the Blue Devils (3-2 overall, 1-0 district) would get another chance even after the flag called back his first TD run.

\"I told everybody it was going to be all right, I told them I was going to get another one,\" he said.

While the yards were impressive so was Hill's breakaway speed once he reached the secondary. He also shook off several tacklers and had shake-and-bake moves that had defenders guessing. Central coach Ben Sacco said the work that Hill has put in during the off-season and with another sport is paying off in big ways now.

\"He is an example of what the weight room does and what track and field does,\" Sacco said. \"In the off-season, he committed himself to the weight room, he's a very strong kid and then he went out and ran track. He worked hard and track gave him that extra burst and that's just a tribute to what work in a weight room can do. I hope that message gets passed on to our kids that he worked his (butt) off to get to that point.\"

In addition to Hill's runs, the Blue Devils got TD runs from LeVon Bellemy and Will Fleming. Bellemy found the end zone from 17 yards out in the first quarter and Fleming showed what he could do by going 80 yards for a score in the fourth quarter. Nate Tyson added a 75-yard punt return for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter.

Both Hill and Sacco said while the win was nice, the Blue Devils have bigger challenges ahead including a key road contest at Iowa City High next week.

\"You don't expect a night like this to happen and he should appreciate it because it does not happen very often but he also has to let it go and move on to the next challenge,\" Sacco said.

For the Wildcats (2-3, 0-1), it was a humbling performance after coming off a big win against Davenport West last week. The Wildcats could only muster a total of 152 yards for the game, including just 100 on the ground on 35 carries.

\"We got completely dominated tonight and you have to give Central credit, they completely took it right at us,\" North coach Brandon Krusey said. \"We made a lot of mistakes, and plain and simple, they just outplayed us from the opening kickoff.\"

A U.S. District Court judge Thursday sentenced seven men to sentences ranging from time served to 30 months in prison for their role in a large dog-fighting venture in the Quad-Cities dating back at least to 2011.

Although Judge Sara Darrow said that the operation appeared to be amateur in terms of sophistication, there was evidence to suggest that things were ramping up, such as the breeding of and promotion of the pit bulls.

Dogs, she said, rely on humans for care and love. Pit bulls are especially vulnerable because they are loyal dogs.

\u201cYou and your co-defendants repaid that loyalty by turning that against them and abusing them,\u201d she said during the hearing for Demarlo A. McCoy, who prosecutors say was one of the bigger players in the dog-fighting venture and hosted several fights in his basement.

\u201cI just wanted to say I\u2019m sorry for my actions,\u201d McCoy said in\u00a0Rock Island federal court\u00a0before Darrow handed down a 24-month prison sentence and three years of supervised release. \u201cA lot was said that wasn\u2019t true \u2026 I never killed a dog.\u201d

McCoy, 30, of Rock Island, who is free on bond, must turn himself in Oct. 30.

Another defendant, Willie E. Jackson told the judge that the entire ordeal has been traumatic for him, his family and close friends. He said he lost his job, as well as a \u201cdream\u201d internship. He has since found a new job, he said.

The news of his involvement in the dog-fighting ring led to his son being bullied at school, where kids \u201cbarked\u201d at him and called him the \u201cdog man\u2019s son.\u201d

\u201cI feel like my sentence already has been handed down,\u201d the 35-year-old Rock Island man said.

Jackson, who pleaded guilty to hosting a dog fight in his home in November 2014, was sentenced to time served, three years of supervised release and was ordered by Darrow to spend time in a halfway house.

The sentencing hearing began Thursday and continued Friday.

Also Friday:

\u2022 Ryan M. Hickman, 43, of Rock Island, who pleaded June 13 to possessing dogs for participation in dog fighting, was sentenced to 30 months in prison and three years of supervised release.

\u2022 Andre Keywan Lidell, 41, of Rock Island, who pleaded guilty June 13 to sponsoring and exhibiting dogs in dog fighting, was sentenced to 20 months in prison and three years of supervised release.

\u2022 Simmeon Terrell Hall, 29, of Rock Island, who pleaded guilty May 22 to sponsoring and exhibiting dogs in dog fighting, was sentenced to 24 months in prison and three years of supervised release.

\u2022 Terrill Onterial McDuffy, 44, of Davenport, who pleaded guilty July 12 to conspiracy, was sentenced to one year and a day in prison and three years of supervised release.

\u2022 Jaquan Leontae Jones, 28, of Rock Island, who pleaded guilty May 18 to knowingly attending a dog fight, a misdemeanor, was sentenced to six months in prison, two of which will be spent in a halfway house, and one year of supervised release.

Sentencing for two of the men, Stantrel Vontrez Knight, 31, and Sherrick Cornelius Houston, 44, both of Rock Island, was continued until Tuesday.

The case against a 10th man, Algerron Lee Goldsmith, 47, of Rock Island, is pending. He is charged with conspiracy to sponsor/exhibit pit bulls in an animal fighting venture and possessing dogs for participation in dog fighting.

The men were indicted Jan. 24.

On April 14, 2016, investigators seized 64 pit bull-type dogs from 10 homes in Rock Island and one in Davenport as part of an investigation into a dog-fighting ring that began a year earlier through information developed by the Rock Island Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation Quad-Cities Federal Gang Task Force.

The seized dogs were placed into the custody of the American Society for the Prevention and Cruelty of Animals.

No dog-fighting charges were filed immediately following the seizures, but Hickman and Jackson were arrested on drug offenses.

Federal prosecutors on April 15, 2016, filed a civil complaint seeking forfeiture of the seized dogs. They said in the civil complaint that the dogs were involved in and used to commit or facilitate the dog-fighting venture.

The dogs have since been forfeited. More than half of them had to be euthanized because of behavioral or serious medical issues. Thirty were able to be adopted, FBI Special Agent Samantha Maxwell testified Thursday.

Assistant U.S. Attorney C. Ryan Finlen argued for lengthy sentences for the men Friday, saying that dog fighting is a \u201cgrotesque activity that grows over time.\u201d

If the venture had not been\u00a0broken up\u00a0in April 2016, he said, it would have continued to grow.

\u00a0

Some of the men hosted dog fights in their homes, while others promoted dogs through a short-lived website.

\u00a0

Some dogs that didn't make the cut were killed, according to prosecutors.

\u00a0

Many of the dogs that were seized had scars and wounds indicative of organized dog fighting and several of the men had \"paraphernalia\" such as medical supplies, dog sporting magazines and treadmills in their homes.

My inbox felt like the Academy Awards of business\u00a0last week as accolades kept rolling in for many of our Quad-City companies. Here's a look at some of the accomplishments of our workplaces:

MidAmerican Energy ranked the highest in the large utility segment in the Midwest region in J.D. Power's 2017 Gas Utility Residential Customer Satisfaction Study. MidAmerican, with Quad-City operations, earned the spot for a 10th consecutive year. It scored 742 on a 1,000-point scale.

The survey also found customer satisfaction overall has increased for a sixth consecutive year on a national basis. The study is based on responses from more than 61,000 customers of the large and midsize gas utilities. Overall satisfaction is 29 index points higher than a year ago.

Other findings determined that safety is resonating with customers. Satisfaction is 88 index points higher among customers who had a safety inspection conducted by their utility than those that did not. Even if customers experience a power interruption, their satisfaction score is higher if the utility alerted them in advance.

The Midwest Midsize category was led by Alliant Energy, which serves a portion of the region.

Vibrant named Best Credit Union

Vibrant Credit Union has again been named one of the Best Credit Union to Work For in an annual survey by Credit Union Journal.

According to the survey, 74 percent of Vibrant employees could see themselves working at Vibrant for their entire career. That's interesting for a workplace where 85 percent of the workforce is under age 40.

\"We've been able to do this by creating a culture that focuses on an exciting experience and relationship both for members and employees,\" said Matt McCombs, Vibrant's president and CEO.

The Best Credit Unions list is made up of 45 credit unions and evaluates workplace policies, practices and demographics along with employee surveys. Best Companies Group managed the survey process.

Vibrant also ranked in the Top 5 for Credit Union Journal's 2016 list and ranked No. 1 for the 2016 Quad-Cities' best place for young professionals to work.

Alverno Health Care honored

The Alverno Health Care Facility in Clinton earned a 2017 Gold - Excellence in Quality Award from the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living for performance in the long-term and post-acute care profession.\u00a0

The award is the final level of the association's National Quality Award Program. The eastern Iowa facility was one of three providers nationwide to receive the Gold award and the first provider in Iowa to achieve the level. Since the program's inception in 1996, only 31 organizations have earned the Gold level award.

\"The Gold award not only serves as recognition for our commitment to delivering quality care, but also as motivation to continue our progress in performance excellence,\" said Libby Goodman, The Alverno's administrator.

Honorees will receive the awards at the association's 68th annual convention Oct. 15-18 in Las Vegas.\u00a0

Gail Ray has plenty of energy and creativity, especially for a 64-year-old college student.

Some people\u00a0might be satisfied to have experienced a 30-year career as an architect, primarily designing major hospitals. But not her.

\u201cAs an architect, I was always a problem solver,\u201d she said. \u201cThis is a new career for me. It is so exciting. I love it. There is so much I see as a new direction I really like. I am 64 years of age, but I have a high level of energy.\u201d

What is she doing now?

She is working hard through an honors program at the John T. Blong Technology Center in Davenport that combines her knowledge of architecture and manufacturing technology with her love of and talent for art.

That combination is taking her\u00a0into the new territory of 3D printing.

The process\u00a0begins with use of\u00a0a special 3D camera and\u00a0to take\u00a0an all-round\u00a0photo of the model.\u00a0Ray then transfers the image to\u00a0a computer and digitally manipulates it until it is ready for the final printing.

Eventually, she will make a silicon mold and use plaster to create a bust of her model, fellow student Ketzalli Dondiego of Clinton. He also is studying in the mechanical design department at Blong, through Scott Community College and Eastern Iowa Community Colleges.

The project is expected to be completed in December.

Brad McConnell, an instructor of mechanical design/solid modeling at the Blong Center, said mechanical design itself is not new. However, what Ray is doing is\u00a0unique.

\u201cWe are adding 3D printing as a new area we are exploring,\u201d he said. \u201cIn industrial additive manufacturing, it is taking away that makes the tool or product.\u201d

For example, he said when designing a specific tool, some types of metal can be shaved, cut and drilled to make it work. But adding to the tool\u00a0is different.

\u201cWith this, we are building a part by addition,\u201d he said. \u201cWe start with nothing but a solid model, then we add to create something by adding.\u201d

While commercial and industrial use has been around for years, McConnell said 3D printing is somewhat new.

On the hobbyist level, he said many people use 3D printing to make things. But this program will take it further.

For Ray's project, he said, she used a hand-held scanner to scan the body and then created 3D software.

Ray said she designed the class herself. She has done sculptures and oil paintings for years. Now, she wants to continue in art but also incorporating\u00a0 technology and creativity to take it to new levels.

\u201cWe actually scanned the full body,\u201d she said.

While she will make only an upper-body bust for this project, she said they will have all the information to do a full body cast in the future.

\u201cHollywood is using this tool,\u201d she said, referring to the TV and film industry. \u201cThere are so many applications in this field. It is so exciting.

\u201cBecause of the equipment, it feels your mind to do things you have never done before.\u201d

Ray said 3D printing is being used in many fields. For instance, she said medical personnel can use it to scan the human body for making prosthetics.

McConnell said\u00a0the Blong Center is working with Deere & Co. and other local entities to develop curriculum and to create a service bureau to work with companies in different capacities.

For instance, he said some local companies are \u201cexcited\u201d to hire\u00a0students to work internships in this field. As more students learn the process, the\u00a0college will begin to provide more workers to this field.

He likes the future of the program and what Ray is doing.

\u201cIn what she is doing, it is doing this on the creating side, to create just the bust of this model,\u201d he said. \u201cWe want to integrate this into the art arena, to use new technology to create art with 3D printing to make sculptures, paintings and murals.\u201d

The Illinois Supreme Court has delivered the latest blow to Rock Island Clean Line's plans to build a $600 million wind energy transmission line across Iowa and Illinois.

In its decision issued Thursday, the state's high court sided with an August 2016 appellate court decision that overturned public utility status for Rock Island Clean Line. The appellate court had ruled the Illinois Commerce Commission should not have granted permission because\u00a0the\u00a0company\u00a0did not meet the definition of a public utility.

In its 7-0 opinion, the Illinois Supreme Court ruled that the company does not actually own, control, manage or operate any plant or transmission lines in Illinois.

\"We agree with the appellate court that the Commission erred in finding that Rock Island (Clean Line) is a public utility,\" the court wrote. \"The company does not qualify as a public utility under Illinois law and was ineligible for a certificate of public convenience and necessity from the Commission.\"

The certificate would have allowed\u00a0Rock Island Clean Line\u00a0to construct the project in the state of Illinois. The proposed 500-mile transmission line will run from O'Brien County in northwest Iowa to Grundy County in Illinois.

In a telephone interview with the Quad-City Times,\u00a0company Vice President Hans Detweiler said the court \"tightened up the definition of ownership.\"

He said that Rock Island Clean Line\u00a0had an option agreement to purchase land in Grundy County, Illinois, to build a converter station for the transmission line. \"They said that was inefficient and said we need to be already vested in that property.\"

\"It's like a legal hangnail,\" Detweiler added.

Clean Line Energy Partners first announced plans in 2010 to build the wind energy transmission project. Its path would include Scott County in Iowa and Rock Island and Henry counties in Illinois.

Detweiler said the company will consider all its options, including a rehearing with the court. It also could appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. It has 21 days to request a rehearing.

\"Or we could decide we have enough information from what they have done, and we can figure out what to do to get approval,\" he said, including exercising its purchase option agreement.

\"On the upside, they invited us, if we move forward and acquire utility property, we could reapply. They really left an open invitation to come back in,\" he said, adding that the Illinois Commerce Commission's \"authority was not diminished at all as a result of this decision.\"

But opponents of Clean Line's project, including the appellant Landowners Alliance, were claiming the court's ruling to be a victory.

\"Our legal victory today is for all landowners in this state,\" Curt Jacobs, an alliance board member, said in a news release issued by the alliance.

William Shay, the lead attorney for the alliance, said the court agreed with the Illinois Landowners Alliance, Farm Bureau and ComEd on the definition of public utility.

\"The Court noted that nothing stops Rock Island (Clean Line) from seeking to develop its project as a private facility, but it will not have public utility status, including the right to condemn landowner easements through eminent domain,\" he added.

Founded in 2012, the alliance and the Block Rock Island Clean Line\u00a0effort has been argued from the beginning that the company did not qualify as a public utility and is not entitled to use the power of eminent domain, said Mary Mauch, the alliance's executive director. \"RICL's foray into eminent domain for private gain has served to raise the public consciousness against these kinds of projects and unite communities to create strong opposition to them,\" she said in the release.\u00a0

Carolyn Sheridan, president of Preservation of Rural Iowa, said that Iowa landowners also \"rejoice with our Illinois neighbors.\" \"This is clearly an example of large groups of people coming together for a common goal.\"

In December, Clean Line Energy Partners withdrew its application with the Iowa Utilities Board pending the Illinois Supreme Court decision.

\"Now we have all the information for the situation is in Iowa and the situation is in Illinois...,\"\u00a0Detweiler said. \"We're going to look at all the pieces and make a decision.\"

But in a statement, he said \"This (ruling) causes great delay for the project and will directly impact competition in electricity markets... It is unfortunate that Illinois now has higher barriers for new market entrants.\"

Use Saturday to mentor a future hunter or angler, encouraged Iowa and Illinois natural resources officials.

Saturday marks the 45th annual National Hunting and Fishing Day.\u00a0This year's event is bolstered with the NHFS Challenge, promoted by famed NASCAR owner Richard Childress. Childress and state officials are asking that outdoor enthusiasts introduce their sports to someone who hasn't spent time in the field this weekend.\u00a0

Iowa Department of Natural Resources will mark the event this weekend at its\u00a0Iowa Outdoor Expo at\u00a0Des Moines' Izaak Walton League\u00a0and Water Works Park. Exhibitions\u00a0on shooting, angling and other outdoor pursuits are scheduled throughout the weekend.\u00a0

Local conservation groups are celebrating the\u00a0occasion throughout Illinois.

Hunting and fishing licenses, and taxes on ammunition and tackle, pay for most conservation and preservation efforts on public land. In recent years, the number of hunters in particular have plunged nationwide, leaving conservation officials struggling to find funds. In 2016, hunters and anglers pumped $64 million into Illinois' conservation programs, according to state Sen. Neil Anderson, who this week co-authored a letter to the editor.\u00a0

\"The outdoor traditions of hunting and angling should not be taken for granted and opportunities to hunt and fish should continue to be abundantly available for future generations,\" Anderson wrote.\u00a0

How good is Quincy tailback Jirehl Brock? To the large crowd watching Friday's game at Almquist Field, Rock Island's football team battled gamely against the Division I prospect.

Still, Brock rushed for 272 yards on 30 carries and three touchdowns to lead Quincy to a 29-15 win over Rock Island.

Quincy (3-2, 2-0) dominated the second half, save for a major fumble and missed field goal. Quincy ran 41 plays to Rock Island\u2019s 15 and had 17 first downs to the Rocks' one in the final 24 minutes.

\u201cThe kids played hard,\u201d said Rock Island coach Ben Hammer, whose team is now 2-3, 0-2 in the\u00a0 Big Six.

The Rocks were on the verge of taking the lead late in the first half, but Nickolas Roessler's 39-yard boot was called back for illegal procedure.

\u201cMore than mistakes at key times, we are not capitalizing on key opportunities, the (muffed) punt (by Quincy that it recovered),\u201d Hammer said. \u201cWe had three guys there. You've got to recover it.

\u201cWhen we had the opportunity for the ball to bounce our way, we didn\u2019t do it.\u201d

Brock led a Quincy attack that rushed for 437 yards.

\u201cThe O-line had a big part of that,\u201d Brock said after the game. \u201cAll seven guys including the tight ends. The backs were blocking as well.

\u201cThe first drive (in the second half, in which Quincy fumbled in the red zone) didn\u2019t go like we wanted it to, but we looked at the plays and saw where we can improve and we did it.\u201d

Quincy also got 104 yards on 21 carries and a TD from fullback Jake Kelley and another 62 yards on seven carries from Adonte Crider.

\u201cWhen all three backs are working, it opens up for anybody,\u201d Brock said.

\u201cIf you have one back and they are focusing on the one, the other two backs are going to have a night.\u201d

Brock scored from two yards out with 1:05 left to make it 29-14.

\u201cThey stacked the box and left the outside open,\u201d Brock said,\u00a0 noting the use of timeouts at the time also helped the Blue Devils. \u201cWe knew if we faked it inside and went right outside we were going to get it.\u201d

The second half dominance with the ground game \u201cis what we like to do,\u201d Brock added.

\u201cWe like to run out the clock and make sure you don\u2019t get the ball and our defense stays off the field, so we can score,\" he said.

Brock compiled 117 yards on 13 carries in the first half. A year ago against Rock Island, he had 304 yards and six touchdowns.

Rock Island scored 15 points in the second quarter, the last on a 5-yard run by Jordan Vesey with 5:02 left in the second quarter. Davion Wilson scored from 11 yards out early in the second quarter for the Rocks\u2019 first score with Vershawn Jones plowing up the middle with the PAT run.

After Quincy\u2019s first score, a 2-yard run by Brock at the 3:06 mark of the first quarter, Logan Ross had trouble with the snap and took off running, diving for the two-point PAT.

Rock Island QB Ian Purvis completed 11 of 17 passes for 128 yards in the first half. He completed only one pass for negative yards in the second half.\u00a0

Nearly every time Arthur Braden touched the football Friday, good things happened for Pleasant Valley.

The senior rushed for 393 yards and five touchdowns and the Spartans nearly needed every one of them to hold off Western Dubuque 55-41 in an Iowa Class 4A District 6 opener at Spartan Stadium.

\u201cThe holes the line was opening, they were as big as the ocean,\u2019\u2019 Braden said. \u201cThose guys up front, they were there all night for me, they were the ones who get the credit. They made it happen.\u2019\u2019

Braden topped the 200-yard mark with just over five minutes remaining in the second quarter, one play before he scored his second touchdown on a 49-yard run, but it was the last of his 23 carries which might have been his most significant.

It came with 3 minutes, 58 seconds remaining in the game and his 58-yard run around right end came on the first snap after the Bobcats had pulled with 49-35 on the fourth of quarterback Quinn Baumhover\u2019s five touchdown passes to Drake George.

Baumhover threw for 449 yards, hitting George 13 times for 332 yards to keep things interesting after Spartans coach Rusty VanWetzinga had put the games in the hands of reserves after a 39-yard touchdown run by Braden gave PV a 49-14 lead and forced a running clock with 4:31 to go in the third quarter.

\u201cThere are a lot of things for us to learn from in this one, starting with understanding that we have to finish games,\u2019\u2019 VanWetzinga said. \u201cWestern Dubuque didn\u2019t go away and we didn\u2019t help ourselves.\u2019\u2019

Pleasant Valley lost three fumbles in the final quarter and once the Bobcats pulled within two touchdowns, VanWetzinga brought his starting offense back into the game.

Braden quickly took a little of the pressure off.

\u201cWe needed this win. We had a good week of practice, got off to a good start and we couldn\u2019t let this one get away,\u2019\u2019 Braden said. \u201cThe holes that were there all night, they were still there when I went back in.\u2019\u2019

Braden provided a hint of things the first time he touched the football, taking the Spartans\u2019 second snap of the game and his first carry 61 yards for a touchdown which was only the beginning for Pleasant Valley.

The Spartans scored on each of their six first-half possessions while piling up 382 of its 567 yards in the first half to open a 42-14 lead by the break.

\u201cOur offense got us off to the type of start we were hoping for,\u2019\u2019 VanWetzinga said. \u201cWe executed well and were able to jump out quickly.\u2019\u2019

Braden reached the end zone three times in the first half, twice during the final 5:10 of a 21-point second quarter. By then, the Spartans (4-1, 1-0) were adding to the 21-0 lead after one quarter.

\u201cRight from the start, it felt good, the whole offense had it going,\u2019\u2019 Braden said.

Max Slavens scored on a 9-yard run midway through the first before hitting Ben Royer over the middle for an 18-yard score with 1:03 remaining in the opening quarter.

Western Dubuque (3-2, 0-1) cut the lead to 21-7 when Baumhover connected with George on a 69-yard touchdown pass on the second play of the second quarter but Slavens answered by hitting Cade Collier for a 27-yard score before Braden returned to the end zone on a his 49-yard touchdown.

He later answered a 7-yard touchdown run by the Bobcats\u2019 Carver Conway with a 6-yard carry with :40 left in the half on a score set up by a 69-yard kickoff return by Mitch Richlen.

George's 332-yard receiving performance is the second best in Iowa prep history, eight yards shy of the state record.

MUSCATINE \u2014 Bettendorf coach Aaron Wiley was glad to have Nijel McIntosh back on the field, and the senior running back showed no signs of the knee tweak that kept him out of last week\u2019s game against Pleasant Valley.

McIntosh rushed for 168 yards and two touchdowns, junior Carter Bell threw for 173 yards and four touchdowns, and senior Ben Wilson had 153 yards receiving and three touchdowns as Bettendorf cruised to a 58-20 win in the district opener at Muscatine to improve to 4-1 on the season.

However, it wasn\u2019t always so simple for the Bulldogs on Friday night. After jumping out to a 14-0 lead, they surrendered a 73-yard touchdown reception to Gavyn Ashley, and the winless Muskies recovered the ensuing onside kick. A few plays later, Muscatine quarterback Carson Orr found Kobe Vasquez for an 8-yard touchdown to tie the score at 14 to end the first quarter.

\u201cI want to credit Muscatine for coming out and taking it to us early,\u201d Wiley said. \u201cJake (Mueller) is a good coach and I respect what he does down here. I credit Jake for having his team ready to play.\u201d

However, it didn\u2019t take long for the Bulldogs\u2019 playmakers to get loose. McIntosh exploded up the middle for a 51-yard touchdown to give the Bulldogs the lead on the following possession, and from there the floodgates opened.

The Bulldogs scored 44 unanswered points as McIntosh dominated the rushing attack and Bell showed why Mueller reference Johnny Manziel when talking about the junior\u2019s playmaker ability in a dominant three-quarter stretch.

\u201cCarter does things every game that you just sit back and go \u2018Wow, how did that happen?\u2019 It was an outstanding game by him,\u201d Wiley said. \u201cIt was a good team win.\u201d

Dubuque Senior 42, Davenport West 28: Sam Schnee continued to find his stride with three rushing touchdowns and Chaz Hancock threw for a score and ran for two more as the Rams rolled past West in their Class 4A District 6 opener.

Schnee finished with a season-high 212 yards on the ground, registering his fourth 100-yard game of the season and third consecutive as the Rams (4-1, 1-0) won their fourth straight game.

Leon Simpson led the Falcons (1-4, 0-1) with a season-high 120 yards on 19 carries \u2014\u00a0his third straight 100-yard performance. Quarterback Jacob Milem was 13 for 21 for 163 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He also scored on a 1-yard run late in the fourth quarter

D.J. Mosley caught five passes for 68 yards and two touchdowns for West.

Iowa City 41, Clinton 29: Davonte Foster rushed for 211 yards and three touchdowns as\u00a0Iowa City High (2-3) came out victorious over Clinton (1-4).

Both teams entered the night on three-game losing streaks.

Moline 35, Galesburg 7: Jaheim Mitchell topped off the rout with a 91-yard scoring run with 3:01 remaining as Moline improved to 2-0 in Western Big Six play.

Eric Maffie rushed for 52 yards and two touchdowns and also passed for 91 yards to lead the Moline attack. Aboubacar Barry and Eddie Doran also scored TDs for the Maroons.

Alleman 42, United Township 8: Quarterback Sam Mattecheck rushed for 95 yards in 12 carries, completed all four of his pass attempts for 121 yards and had a hand in the scoring of three touchdowns to lead Alleman.

The Pioneers (2-0 in the Big Six) controlled the game with their ball control offense the entire way. UT managed just 34 yards in 20 plays in the first half.

Mattecheck scored on a 39-yard run, tossed a 15-yard TD pass to Andrew Barrett and added a 28-yard scoring pass to Josh Tim just before halftime.

Boys golf

WEST BRANCH, Iowa \u2014\u00a0Butch Pedersen has been the head coach at West Branch since 1983.

He quickly recognized the caliber of the game he saw Friday night.

\"That's one of the best games I've ever been involved with,\" he said. \"Our kids never gave up, their kids never gave up, a great football game with two great football teams going at it.\"

It came right down to the end Friday night at the Little Rose Bowl. Trailing late, Bellevue drove 69 yards in the final minute to give themselves a chance to grab their first road win over West Branch but Ben Thompson's interception in the end zone sealed a 45-41 win for the Class 1A No. 9 Bears over the No. 8 Comets.

\"What a play,\" Bellevue head coach Chet Knake said. \"He bottled up our best receiver, just out-physicalled him at the goal line and made a great play.\"

Bellevue showed as much resiliency as possible in the game. The Comets came out quickly, with Hunter Clasen taking a 63-yard touchdown pass from Cade Daugherty on the second play of the game to put Bellevue up 7-0.

But West Branch quickly fought back and dominated much of the rest of the first half. Bellevue scored in the final minute to cut the lead to 21-13 but Jacob Graves took a 67-yard pass from Beau Cornwell on the first play of the ensuing drive to give West Branch a 28-13 halftime lead.

The Bears took their opening drive of the second half right down the field, using 13 plays and over seven minutes to set up a field goal that put West Branch ahead 31-13 with 4:43 left in the third quarter.

Bellevue (4-1, 2-1 Class 1A District 3) quickly answered.

Clasen took the ensuing kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown, then Daugherty intercepted Cornwell on the next drive.

Daugherty then hit Trevor Hager with a 33-yard touchdown pass on 4th and 5 to cut the lead to 31-27 with 1:04 left in the third quarter.

\"The sidelines were hyped when I ran it back,\" Clasen said. \"I just wanted to have that voice (and make that play).\"

The Comets got the ball right back on a blocked punt but Daugherty fumbled the ball on the next drive, a blown chance in a game where every snap proved to be vital.

Daugherty struggled at times during the game, throwing three interceptions and losing that fumble all in West Branch (5-0, 3-0) territory but showed his resiliency.

He gave Bellevue a 34-31 lead on a 39-yard TD pass with 7:32 left, then after West Branch scored again to take a 38-34 lead, Daugherty again drove the ball down the field and punched it in with a 1-yard run to give the Comets a 41-38 lead.

He finished the night with 322 yards and four touchdowns through the air as well as 87 yards and a touchdown on the ground.

\"I always talk about leadership and it's when things aren't going the way they always do for you and Cade was struggling a little bit and he found a different way to make an effect,\" Knake said. \"He never dropped his head.\"

A blown coverage cost the Comets the win, however, as Cornwell hit Graves with a 63-yard pass on the first play of the next drive and then scored with a 1-yard sneak of his own for the final score.

Cornwell threw for a school record 343 yards and Graves had a school record 168 receiving yards in the win.

Daugherty drove the Comets right down the field, but Thompson's interception ended it to give the Bears a leg up in the race for the district title.

\"It was a roller coaster,\" Clasen said. \"I strongly believed we were going to win this game. We made awesome plays, throwing great balls, I honestly thought we were going to win.\"

ELDRIDGE \u2014 They played at a frenetic pace, similar to fast-break basketball.\u00a0

On what was an unusually muggy night for the middle of the high school football season, North Scott\u2019s offensive tempo had Dubuque Hempstead\u2019s defense scrambling Friday.

The result was a lopsided outcome.

North Scott scored two touchdowns and accumulated 143 total yards on its first 14 offensive snaps en route to a 38-0 shellacking of Hempstead on homecoming at Lancer Stadium.

\u201cIt was a lot of fun,\u201d senior offensive lineman Cole Ernst said. \u201cWe knew we had them in our back pockets the entire game.\u201d

Hempstead had no solution for slowing down North Scott\u2019s no-huddle attack.

Quarterback Nile McLaughlin completed his first nine passes and finished 11 of 14 for 139 yards. Senior Jared Rus ran for 158 yards and two scores, including a 42-yard touchdown scamper in the first quarter.

\u201cThat was our plan to go fast,\u201d said McLaughlin, who also rushed for a pair of touchdowns. \u201cWe wanted to get them on their heels. We wanted to get it on the outside because they were really packing it inside.

\u201cWe were able to get the ball down the field and score.\u201d

North Scott coach Kevin Tippet said the coaching staff challenged the receivers, in particular, this week to win the edges. Jackson Schoening had four receptions in the first quarter and Carson Rollinger, who hauled in a 31-yard touchdown from McLaughlin, caught four first-half passes.

McLaughlin, Rus and the offensive line did the rest as North Scott scored 31 first-half points.

\u201cWhen we can go with that tempo, it is hard if you\u2019re not used to playing against it,\u201d Tippet said. \u201cI was really happy with how our kids played early.\u201d

The offensive line created running lanes for Rus, McLaughlin and Jacob Porth.

\u201cThat was probably our best game so far up front,\u201d Ernst said. \u201cWe knew all of our assignments and did what we were supposed to do.\u201d

It was a stark contrast to last year\u2019s district opener in Dubuque. North Scott fell behind by three scores and stormed back to come up three points short.

This time, North Scott had a 24-point lead midway through the second quarter and was never challenged.

\u201cWe didn\u2019t mention that game at all from last year,\u201d Tippet said, \u201cbut I felt our kids were really focused. I thought they did a great job of that this week with homecoming and all those distractions of coming out, playing hard and staying focused.\u201d

Since a season-opening loss to Davenport Assumption, North Scott (4-1, 1-0) has won four straight by a 165-27 margin.

While the offense continues to gain confidence, the defense has allowed only three touchdowns in the last four games.

Hempstead (2-3, 0-1) finished with just 148 total yards.

\u201cWe talk about being a great defense instead of a good defense,\u201d Rus said. \"I think we're getting there, but we\u2019ve got the tougher part of our schedule coming up now.\u201d

The Lancers travel to Western Dubuque (3-2) next Friday, followed by a home game against 10th-ranked Pleasant Valley (4-1) and a trip to Dubuque Senior (4-1).

\u201cI feel our practices are getting a lot better,\u201d McLaughlin said. \u201cWe\u2019re starting to click on offense and our defense has been doing well all season.

\u201cWe\u2019re starting to really pull together as a team.\u201d

Scientists at the Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research, along with partner organizations, received a $1.46 million award from the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health and the Office of Research on Women\u2019s Health at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The award funds a two-year research planning project to address short-term pain and functional outcomes associated with different numbers of chiropractic visits, along with long-term effectiveness of chiropractic care delivered at Veterans Health Administration clinics.

If the NIH determines initial project goals are met after the two-year planning phase and, pending available funds, the project and funding will extend over an additional four years at about $7 million, making it the largest award ever granted by the NIH to a chiropractic institution.

The award is part of a multi-disciplinary initiative sponsored by the institute, Department of Defense and the Veterans Health Administration. Partner organizations are the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice, Veterans Administration Health Care systems in Iowa City, Minneapolis, Connecticut and Los Angeles, the University of Iowa and Yale University.

The Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research, with headquarters at Palmer\u2019s Davenport campus, is the most highly funded chiropractic research center in the United States. Within the past 10 years, the center has been awarded grants from the NIH, the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration and the Department of Defense, in addition to private-foundation grants.

Because October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Family Resources\u2019 SafePath Survivor Resources program will partner with Quad-City area schools, salons and other community agencies to spread awareness.

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, more than 17 percent of women in Iowa are stalked during their lifetimes. Additionally, one in three women and one in four men in the United States have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner.

The SafePath program staff will host several free lunch-and-learn events throughout the month. To see the schedule, visit the Family Resources website at www.famres.org/calendar

Staff members and volunteers also will visit colleges and high schools during lunch periods to paint students\u2019 pinky nails purple for domestic violence awareness. Participants can share photos of their own painted pinky nails at #FamResPurplePinkies and tag Family Resources to be entered to win a Family Resources swag bag.

Family Resources offers services in Cedar, Clinton, Des Moines, Dubuque, Henry, Jackson, Lee, Louisa, Muscatine and Scott counties in Iowa and Rock Island County. For more information, visit www.famres.org.

In a high school biology room, a class of sophomores was uncharacteristically glued to their textbooks. The teacher, Rocky Casini had hinted all year that Chapter 13 was coming. Debbi Castle was a one of the students and remembered anxiously waiting for Chapter 13. She remembered hearing talk of students who hadn\u2019t dropped out just so they could hear this lesson. Casini had been teaching his way through the textbook and without so much as a shutter had skipped over this chapter.

\u201cHe was saving it,\u201d Castle said. \u201cWe had books in front of us and we\u2019d thumb through them. We brought up that he\u2019d skipped it, and Casini just smiled and kept on.\u201d

Chapter 13 was on reproductive systems in the body, and in that classroom, every student was attentive to Casini\u2019s every word.

Castle said she remembered how attentive Casini was to his students. Looking for ways to engage them on their level. Castle said that he listened to their problems, their excuses, their complaints with an even keel and bountiful sensitivity.

\u201cWhether you were the ornery one or the smart one, he saw potential in all of us,\u201d Castle said. \u201cHe listened when you talked to him. He was there. He felt like such a positive force in the school.\u201d

Rasmo Luigi Casini was the youngest child of Ada and Mario Casini. He was born in a small Italian village, Fornaci di Barga in Tuscany. Born in 1938, his first years were marked by a war-torn Europe in an Italy that bore witnessed World War II. In his memoir, he wrote about seeing the bomber planes for the first time:

\"Tiny airplanes flew over the Serchio Valley.

\"Why did everyone look frightened? How could those tiny planes possibly hurt us?

\"At the time I didn\u2019t understand that the planes were large but very distant.

\"Later, I learned those planes were on their way to bomb a tunnel where German tanks hid.

\"Later, I came to understand bombs.

\"Later, I came to know war.\"

Casini\u2019s hometown was occupied by German soldiers until the Allies liberated the Serchio Valley in 1945. He was still young. Living through the aftermath of war, it was three years before his family would board the ship MS Vulcania.

The Casini family landed in New York Harbor and made its way to Chicago. Rocky Casini attended school and received his U.S. citizenship his senior year of high school. He remembers the test back then being pretty easy. From his memoir:

\"During my senior year of high school, I became a proud American citizen. Nowadays, I believe that people study and take courses to pass the citizenship test, but this was how my test went.

\"Examiner: What are the colors of our flag?

\"Me: Red, White, and Blue

\"Examiner: Spell CAT

\"Me: Spell cat? But I\u2019m a senior in high school!

\"Examiner: These are the questions we ask.

\"Me: C-A-T

\"Examiner: Name the branches of our government.

\"Me: Executive, Legislative, Judicial.

\"Examiner: Congratulations. You pass.\"

In 1966, Casini met the woman who be his wife. They met at a dance and, being nervous, she didn\u2019t give her real name. Casini wrote that it was \u201clove at first sight.\u201d She called herself \u201cGwendolyn.\u201d It wasn\u2019t until he called around looking for her that he learned her name was Kitty. Casini wrote in his memoir that she would sign her love notes \u201cGwendolyn.\u201d

They married in the fall of 1966 and the following year, Kitty was hired by a hospital in Muscatine and Rocky, became a teacher in Muscatine. They had two children, Jay and Susan.

Casini\u2019s memoir is divided into 23 chapters. Casini devoted half of the book to his life in Muscatine, to his wife and family, to his work and his dogs. He spends less time on periods like the war and his family\u2019s journey to the United States.

\u201cThat was my dad,\u201d Jay Casini said. \u201cWhere a lot of people would tell him that War stuff might be what people would want to read about. He would argue otherwise, that his work in Muscatine, that was the important part.\u201d

Jay remembered meeting some of his students.

\u201cEvery teacher has a passion for education, but he had a way of inspiring people. I heard that more often than not from former students. He was the man who ignited that spark for people.\u201d

\u201cHe just didn\u2019t let connections, the people, go,\u201d said Mary Curry, a former student. \u201cHe always tried to stay connected with students.\u201d

Curry remembered coming in the first day of class to a big box of doughnuts and a teacher that was ready to get started. She said that he would talk for hours about how proud he was of the students he had that went on to be in the field of science.

Richard \u201cWash\u201d Washburn, a former coworker, said he was inspired by Casini\u2019s commitment to educating students.

\u201cI could see it was very important to him to see these students appreciate a good education,\u201d Washburn said. \u201cHe would challenge his students to go beyond the general. Force them to go deep in the subject matter.\u201d

On Tuesday, Sept. 12, a visitation was held for Rocky Casini. His daughter, Susan Morford, said it helped her find peace in his death to speak with the hundreds of people that walked through the visitation line.

\"That was my dad. He was everything to so many people,\" Morford said. \"I had several friends that weren't close to their dads or didn't have dads in their lives. Their reaction to his death was as bad as mine. He filled that role for so many of them. I think he brought that everywhere he went.

\"What I felt that I learned from the visitation was that for all these people he was a beloved teacher and father figure and close friend. Rocky was kind of Rocky all over. He was that way to me and to everyone. He was great dad, of course. But he really was an overwhelmingly wonderful man.\"

At the funeral the following day, Jay Casini delivered a benediction for his father. He talked about one of the last moments he spent with Rocky. Rocky had just gotten out of surgery, and he was shivering. He asked his nurse for two of the warm blankets the hospital gave out to patients.

\u201cIt was cold in there,\u201d Jay said. \u201cWe figured it was for him.\u201d

When the nurse returned with the blankets, he laid one on his bed and asked the nurse to give other one to his wife Kitty.

\u201cThat was quintessential Dad,\u201d Jay said. \u201cHe took care of people.\"

Paula Gallagher never thought she was a dog person until she fostered a three-legged pit for a friend who was trying to get back on his feet last year.

When she and her husband, Mike, had to give the dog back a few months later, they were heartbroken.

\u201cSomething needed to fill the void in our house, so we kind of started looking around for another dog.

Just before Christmas, Paula, 29, and Mike, 31, of Ohio, visited the Capital Area Humane Society near Columbus to look for a pit bull or pit bull mix.

\u201cThe dog that we fostered (previously) was super chill,\u201d she said. \u201cHe was very, very low maintenance. Since we knew we wanted a young dog, we knew we were going to get the puppy age where they could be crazy.\u201d

They decided to adopt a 7-month-old pit bull puppy named Atlas who Paul Gallagher said seemed \u201creally laid back.\u201d

\u201cAtlas was just chilling in his cage and staring at us,\u201d she said. \u201cHe wasn\u2019t jumping, he wasn\u2019t barking. He whined a little bit when we came up to him but other than that, he was really relaxed, which wasn\u2019t something you see a lot in shelter dogs. Usually they\u2019re barking and they\u2019re scared or angry.\u201d

The puppy, she learned, was born to one of 64 pit bulls that was seized during a large dog fighting venture in the Quad-Cities. Atlas and his siblings were born after the seizure at a facility run by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals.

On Friday, seven of the men involved in the case were sentenced to terms ranging from time served to 30 months in federal prison following a two-day sentencing hearing in U.S. District Court, Rock Island.

Paula Gallagher said Atlas\u2019 background didn\u2019t worry her at all.

\u201cI was more excited to give him a home because he didn\u2019t really know that,\u201d she said.

Paula said that when they brought Atlas home he was \u201cafraid of everything.\u201d They had to potty train him, crate train him and teach him how to use the stairs.

\u201cImagine my husband carrying a 45-pound or a 50-pound pit bull up the stairs every night to go to bed,\u201d she said with a laugh.

Eventually, he learned how to use the stairs, she said.

Atals quickly has become part of the family, Paula Gallagher said.

\u201cHe\u2019s like my child,\u201d she said. \u201cThere\u2019s so much love.\u201d

IOWA CITY \u2014 Health care was at the top of voters\u2019 agendas at a town hall meeting with U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst on Friday in Iowa City, even as the latest attempt to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act hit a roadblock.

About an hour before Ernst\u2019s public event, Arizona Sen. John McCain announced he would vote no on the Graham-Cassidy health care bill, likely dooming its chances. McCain joins fellow Republican Rand Paul of Kentucky in opposition, meaning the bill cannot lose any more votes and still pass. When Ernst announced the news to the crowd gathered at the Iowa Memorial Union on the University of Iowa campus, she was met with deafening cheers.

Still, audience members made clear health care is a primary concern, asking the senator question after question on the topic. She said she agreed with them that a solution must be found, but the question remains what that solution will be.

She called Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders\u2019 proposal for a single-payer health care system \u201ca pie in the sky,\u201d questioning how it would be paid for, and said she hopes to find a bipartisan solution going forward. In the interim, she said she worries for families facing rising premiums and loss of choices with just one insurer, Medica, remaining on Iowa\u2019s health insurance exchange for 2018.

Several hundred people flowed into the Iowa Memorial Union for the event, the third town hall this week for Ernst after appearances in Floyd and Wayne counties as part of her 99-county tour.

Johnson County made its status as Iowa\u2019s most liberal enclave known with frequent loud cheers, boos and shouting and a sea of red and green signs reading \u201cAgree\u201d or \u201cDisagree\u201d that audience members waved enthusiastically.

The atmosphere was, at times, verbally combative, but when one attendee thanked Ernst for coming to Iowa City even knowing the reception she was likely to face, the crowd cheered.

After the event, Ernst told reporters she thinks it is important to hear from constituents, perhaps especially so when they don\u2019t agree with her.

\u201cIt is important that people can get out and express how they feel about different issues. It certainly does inform me on how people are thinking,\u201d she said. \u201cI know tensions are running high ... but Iowa has once again proven that we can have civil discourse, and we can discuss these issues, hear from constituents and do it in a manner that will be productive.\u201d

One audience member who tried to yell out his question and was asked to sit was Emiliano Martinez, a University of Iowa senior and president of Hawkeyes for Dream Iowa, which organized a rally in Hubbard Park after the event.

The organization advocates for so-called \u201cDreamers,\u201d the undocumented young people who were brought to the United States as children. They were given protection from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals \u2014 or DACA \u2014 program implemented by President Barack Obama in 2012 and rescinded by President Donald Trump in early September. Trump said the program would end after six months and that it is up to Congress to find a solution in that time.

Another person later asked Ernst the same question Martinez was yelling: What will she do to help the DACA recipients?

\u201cI do support finding a legal status, a permanent legal status for our Dreamers,\u201d Ernst said.

Talking with reporters after the town hall, she said she is aware of three or four bills in the works to address the issue. Ernst said the challenge will be finding consensus and balance on a path forward.

Martinez said he was satisfied by her answer but remains wary.

\u201cMy concerns are for the end line,\u201d he said. \u201cWe would hate to see DACA happen but be used to bargain for an increased budget for Immigration Customs and Enforcement or for deporting the parents of Dreamers.\u201d

CEDAR RAPIDS \u2014 If education funding in Iowa received a grade, some education experts and legislators said Friday it would be a poor one.

Discrepancies in funding equality affects almost half of Iowa\u2019s 333 school districts, Davenport Community School District Superintendent Art Tate said during a panel at The Gazette\u2019s Iowa Ideas conference.

Tate said his district has been shortchanged $2.7 million a year because of the spending formula. With 66 percent of his students receiving free or reduced-price lunches, he said, \u201cThere are not enough assets to serve our students.\u201d

Before the 1970s, public schools in Iowa mostly were funded through local property taxes until the state increased its aid as a portion of the school funding formula.

The formula allows some districts to spend as much as $175 more per student than others, meaning an additional hundreds of thousands of dollars for some schools\u2019 general funds.

Although state lawmakers review the funding system every five years, state Rep. Mary Mascher, D-Iowa City, said nothing has been fixed.

\u201cThe Legislature does not have the political will to get it done,\u201d Mascher said.

Friday\u2019s panel came on the heels of school board elections and several bond votes throughout eastern Iowa last week. The Iowa City Community School District, for example, passed the biggest bond in state\u2019s history when voters approved $191.5 million for facilities projects. Linn-Mar School District, however, failed to pass its $80 million bond.

The panel discussion also turned to how funding should be allocated, a topic to be discussed in the upcoming state legislative session. School districts currently receive an increase in the percentage of state supplemental aid from the budget, depending on overall revenue.

State Rep. Walt Rogers, R-Cedar Falls and chairman of the Iowa House education committee, said he predicts legislators to start at the current standing of 44 percent of the state\u2019s general budget \u201cand go from there.\u201d

\u201cThe biggest thing tightening our budget is Medicaid,\u201d Rogers said. \u201cThere\u2019s been a 6 percent increase overall budget-wise (in Medicaid funding) over the last 10 years.\u201d

But Tammy Wawro, Iowa State Education Association president, pushed back, saying that having a percentage of an unknown number \u2014 as the general budget depends on still-incoming revenue \u2014 leaves much to the unknown.

\u201cThat doesn\u2019t help us plan or make me feel comfortable about where we\u2019re at,\u201d Wawro said.

Instead, Wawro said teachers should be guaranteed a baseline within their incomes and benefits. This would be key, she said, in recruiting and retaining quality educators in the state\u2019s districts.

\u201cIf we cannot be competitive with states outside of Iowa, we are going to be in a world of hurt, and we are not going to see kids staying in the state to teach here,\u201d Wawro said.

In a discussion on school transportation, Rogers said there\u2019s a need for more innovation and efficiency.

Allocating large portions of their state aid on their transportation can force some school districts to cut Advanced Placement courses and other programs, Wawro said.

Mascher also said a solution for rural schools, which struggle to offer more programs, can be found in an initiative through the Iowa Department of Education that offers high school courses online.

However, just having conversations on these issues could show that effort is being made in the right direction.

\u201cPutting the stake in the ground is huge, but I think we\u2019re there,\u201d Tate said.

CEDAR RAPIDS \u2014 Students attending Iowa\u2019s public universities likely will see tuition increases, but they won\u2019t be the annualized 7 percent over five years that two of the institutions are seeking, according to the Iowa regent who chaired a tuition task force over the summer.

Larry McKibben of Marshalltown, a former state senator, told those at The Gazette\u2019s Iowa Ideas conference that Iowa\u2019s public universities need a combination of higher tuition, increased state funding and savings from efficiencies to maintain quality and top faculty at the University of Iowa, Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa.

\u201cWill it be 7 percent? The answer is no,\u201d McKibben said. \u201cWe certainly don\u2019t want that to happen, and we don\u2019t want to ask for that. It\u2019s way too soon to say what it will be.\u201d

The regents, a nine-member volunteer board, must first approve its request for state funding for the next budget year \u2014 which it will tackle in a special meeting next week \u2014 before considering tuition rates for the fall of 2018. The board is scheduled to consider tuition rates in October, with a final vote in December.

The Board of Regents Office last week released its proposed appropriations request, which includes a $12 million increase that would be earmarked for resident undergraduate student financial aid to cushion a tuition increase.

The action comes after the GOP-run Legislature during the last legislative session cut the institutions\u2019 base appropriations by more than $30 million.

Iowa and Iowa State leaders have requested a 7 percent annual increase for resident undergraduates, and Northern Iowa has suggested a 5 percent annualized increase, which some argue would make more financial aid imperative for the schools to accomplish their missions of being accessible and diverse.

At Friday\u2019s conference, Iowa student body president Jacob Simpson said he hoped any boost in tuition could be held in the range of 3 percent to 5 percent.

After the meeting, McKibben said he would have preferred the student leader had set his sights a little lower, such as in the 2 percent to 4 percent range, but higher tuition at some levels appears inevitable.

\u201cWe can\u2019t get the numbers together and continue the high level of education and faculty and staff that they want if we don\u2019t,\u201d McKibben said. \u201cThere is going to be some increase in tuition. I don\u2019t know exactly what it\u2019s going to be. I would hope 5 (percent) is on the high end.\u201d

Sen. Herman Quirmbach, D-Ames, who serves on legislative education committees, said Friday the cuts in state aid to Iowa\u2019s three regent universities have effectively been a \u201ctuition tax increase\u201d on Iowa students and their parents.

\u201cFor the sake of Iowa\u2019s future, we have to keep our state universities affordable to all without compromising the quality of their education. That will take money,\u201d said Quirmbach, who pointed to nearly $332 million in tax credits the state divvies up to attract businesses and high-quality jobs as a possible source of future funding for higher education.

Tom Mortenson, a Pell researcher who has studied trends in funding for higher education, said Iowa\u2019s support for its public colleges is about the same as it was decades ago and is on a downward arc. He said higher education is losing the competition for taxpayer dollars to health care, corrections and unfunded pensions.

\u201cIowa has become a national leader in the defunding of higher education,\u201d said Mortensen, noting Iowa is tied with four other states for the worst financial support for colleges. He said the shift began in 2000 when then-Gov. Tom Vilsack took money from higher education to boost funding for K-12 teachers\u2019 salaries.

\u201cI loved it, I loved it.\u201d

So says Moline\u2019s Diana Lovett, who spoke of the work she accomplished on her first medical mission trip to Haiti in 1982. She was first motivated by seeing pictures of the work by another nurse. When told she was interested, the leader of a local group soon to leave on that trip asked her, \u201cHow fast can you get a passport?\u201d

Since that first trip, Lovett has made a habit of it and is leaving Saturday for her 37th\u00a0\u2014 and final\u00a0\u2014 mission trip to Haiti. She goes not to convert people\u2019s faith, to build roads or houses but to save lives.

And she says you can do the same, whether in Haiti or here.

Granted, she was a longtime trauma nurse and immediately qualified to go. She was hooked up with Friends of the Children of Haiti, based in Rockford, Illinois, a nonprofit group designed specifically to give health care in the fall and spring in remote places in Haiti. They\u2019ve been working in La Montagne, Haiti, since 1998, a full 90 minutes away from the closest town of Jacmel.

Her Friends group is the primary health care for that village, so if the patients\u2019 conditions are stable, medical personnel end up leaving them with six months worth of medicines until they return. The group coordinates with a doctor in Jacmel if villagers need more follow-up work.

Lovett said the government is too unstable, changes too often to offer any help beyond the three main cities, and even then, patients must pay up front before receiving any medical attention or tests. She claims it\u2019s the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Most Haitians don't have enough money to feed their families, much less pay for health care, so they forego it.

\u201cIf someone needs an operation, like an appendectomy, if we weren\u2019t there at the time, they\u2019d just stay home and perish,\u201d she said.

It\u2019s much like the \"M*A*S*H\" military medical outfits on TV\u00a0\u2014 they have to think on their feet.

\u201cWe can only take just so much in the way of supplies, so you have to think out of the box, dealing with whatever supplies you might have,\u201d she said.

Because they can afford to take only 12 people on these trips, they must have a medical background.

But now, \u201cwe need younger people,\u201d said Lovett, 69. She promised her husband she would stop when she \u201cwas old and gray.\u201d She has a pacemaker and needs her own medicine, which she can deplete if the group gets stuck in Haiti because of weather. And, with these two-week mission trips, she\u2019s taken very few vacations with her husband.

She also emphasizes that over the years her group has taught the local emergency technicians, the Caritas and midwives what to do, how to suture, resuscitate babies and more. They also have purchased medical equipment and supplies for them, including gauze, malaria medicine and pain relievers. The Americans know that \u201cif you don\u2019t have any skin in the game, any involvement, there\u2019s no incentive for them to do anything differently.\u201d

On this trip, they will fly from Chicago to Miami, then to Port au Prince and Jacmel before driving hours over rough roads to La Montagne. There are risks to such a trip.

Why does she endure hurricanes, torrential rains, the tarantulas (which are more afraid of us, she said, than we are of them), the lack of modern technology, bad roads and political problems?

\u201cI can\u2019t answer that beyond that fact that I need to,\u201d she said.

She said the 2,500 Haitians she sees are so appreciative, so patient and kind, that it\u2019s her pleasure to serve them.

\u201cI\u2019ve been blessed with this skill set, but you can still help by looking around, going to the men\u2019s shelter in downtown Rock Island or their local food pantry,\u201d she said.

A 20-year-old is dead and another person is injured, after a shooting Friday morning in Davenport.

Police responded at 7:34 a.m. to the 1300 block of South Nevada Avenue, where Brady Tumlinson was pronounced dead. A second adult was transported to Genesis Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

The shootings are being investigated by Davenport police.

A neighbor who heard screams for help summoned police to the scene in the west end of Davenport.

Joe Devlin, 1317 S. Nevada Ave., was watering his tomato plants about 7 a.m. when he heard a woman scream for help.

The door to the neighboring house at 1321 Nevada Ave. was open, he said, so he went in. He saw a man and woman on the bed. The woman, he said, told him both of them had been shot.

Devlin didn't see a phone, so he went back to his house and called police, who arrived quickly.

The house where the incident happened is in a quiet working-class neighborhood. Blinds protruded from a window where shattered glass lay underneath.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to call the Davenport Police Department at 563-326-6125 or submit an anonymous tip via the mobile app titled \u201cCityConnect Davenport, IA\u201d or \u201cCrimeReports by Motorola.\u201d

PENN STATE AT IOWA |\u00a0WEEK 4: 6:30 P.M., KINNICK STADIUM

TV: WQAD

RADIO: WOC 1420 AM

LINE: Penn State by 12.5

SERIES: Penn State 14-12

FIVE THINGS TO WATCH

Akrum Wadley\u2019s work: An ankle injury he labels \u201cnothing major\u2019\u2019 sidelined the Iowa senior running back throughout the second half of last week\u2019s win over North Texas. With a need to work the clock and put together sustained drives against a potent Penn State offense, the Hawkeyes need a productive game from Wadley. He currently ranks eighth in the Big Ten with an average of 86 yards per game.

Saquon Barkley\u2019s feet: The 5-foot-11, 228-pound junior carries the ball, catches passes and returns kicks. Only one player in the Football Bowl Subdivision \u2014 San Diego State\u2019s Rashaad Penny \u2014\u00a0averages more than the 218.3 all-purpose yards per game Barkley gives the Nittany Lions. In addition to averaging 102.3 rushing yards, his improved skill as a receiver is opening things up for fellow preseason all-American Mike Gesicki.

How clean can Iowa be?: Turnovers and penalties have been an early-season issue for Iowa. One of each negated first-quarter touchdown plays in last week\u2019s win over North Texas and improvements in both areas are an emphasis this week. Six turnovers \u2014\u00a0five fumbles and an interception \u2014\u00a0have led Iowa to 10th in the Big Ten in turnover margin and only four Big Ten teams average more than the 57.3 penalty yards Iowa averages.

Trace McSorley\u2019s containment: Keeping Trace McSorley in the pocket is a point of emphasis for the Hawkeyes, who got a taste of the 6-foot junior\u2019s abilities in a 41-14 loss at Penn State a year ago. McSorley has been dominant this season, completing 67.1 percent of his passes for 753 yards and nine touchdowns while being intercepted twice. He is also Nittany Lions\u2019 second-leading rusher, averaging 45.7 yards per game.

Iowa\u2019s possession time: Last week\u2019s work against North Texas serves as a blueprint for the Hawkeyes against Penn State. Iowa owned the football for 40 minutes, 45 seconds against the Mean Green, using a series of long, methodical drives to keep North Texas\u2019 pass-first offense off the field. Expect the approach to be the same against the Nittany Lions, who held a 10-minute edge in possession time against Iowa last season.

MARQUEE MATCHUP

Iowa QB Nate Stanley vs. Penn State DB Marcus Allen: The Hawkeyes\u2019 sophomore quarterback faces a multitude of challenges against a Nittany Lions defense that ranks second in the Big Ten with 11 sacks. That includes making plays against a secondary led by safety Marcus Allen, a senior who leads Penn State with 18 tackles. He has recorded one pick and two pass break-ups during his team\u2019s 3-0 start.

BY THE NUMBERS

5: Iowa has won its last five Big Ten openers, dating to a 13-3 loss at Penn State in 2011. It is chasing its fifth 4-0 start under coach Kirk Ferentz

19-to-1: Ratio of touchdowns scored to the number of touchdowns Penn State has allowed through three games this season

QUOTABLE

\u201cThere is always something special about a night game at Kinnick. When the lights go on, the fans are unbelievable and we do feed off of that energy. That was the case a year ago against Michigan and I\u2019m sure it will be the same this week. It\u2019s the kind of environment that gets you going.\u2019\u2019

IOWA CITY \u2014\u00a0Pink and black and gold. It promises to be a colorful night under the lights tonight at Kinnick Stadium.

Fourth-ranked Penn State begins defense of the Big Ten football championship it won a year ago with a night game at Iowa, which hopes to recapture the magic it had in upsetting second-rated Michigan under the lights at Kinnick Stadium last season.

\u201cNight games at Kinnick, they\u2019re special,\u2019\u2019 Iowa center James Daniels said.

He went on to talk about how the white gloves most players wear seem to take on a bluish hue under the lights.

\u201cI noticed that right away my freshman year,\u2019\u2019 Daniels said. \u201cEverything looks and feels a little different for a night game.\u2019\u2019

Iowa has a 10-4 record all-time under the lights at Kinnick Stadium, including wins in the four games it has hosted at night in the past two seasons.

The last team to beat the Hawkeyes at home at night was Penn State, which started quickly and rolled to a 38-14 win in its most recent visit to Kinnick Stadium in 2012.

Nittany Lions coach James Franklin will bring a talent-rich team to Iowa tonight, pairing an aggressive defense with an offense led by veteran quarterback Trace McSorley and a pair of preseason all-Americans in running back Saquon Barkley and tight end Mike Gesicki.

He will also bring a curiosity about a venue he has heard a lot about but has never visited before.

Franklin brought up the topic of Kinnick Stadium\u2019s storied pink locker rooms during his weekly news conference of Tuesday, calling it one of the \u201ccooler, historical kind of things in college football from a tradition standpoint.\u2019\u2019

Like the former Hawkeye coach who first slapped pink paint on the locker room walls at Kinnick Stadium, Hayden Fry, Franklin received an undergraduate degree in psychology.

The East Stroudsburg State graduate said he planned to discuss the pink locker rooms with his players this week before the Nittany Lions arrived in Iowa City.

\u201cI\u2019m going to talk to our guys about it being a really, really nice gesture by the University of Iowa to welcome Penn State since our original school colors are pink and black ...\u2019\u2019 Franklin said. \u201cI\u2019m not going to make a big deal about it, but I am going to have some fun with it, then just kind of move on.\u2019\u2019

Franklin has had his team focusing on the atmosphere it can expect while looking to add to its 3-0 record in Penn State\u2019s first road game of the season.

\u201cI wanted to educate myself on what to expect. I\u2019ve talked to a lot of people, asked a lot of questions, and I know that place is going to be rocking,\u2019\u2019 Franklin said.

The Nittany Lions have prepared with plenty of loud music on the practice field this week, attempting to simulate the environment they will face tonight.

\u201cWe expect it to be a pretty crazy scene,\u2019\u2019 Barkley said. \u201cWe know it will be loud and that the sidelines are tight. We\u2019ve seen what it was like against Michigan last year. We\u2019ve got to be ready to deal with that.\u2019\u2019

Iowa has won its last three home games against top-five teams, including last season\u2019s 14-13 win over the Wolverines.

Linebacker Josey Jewell said the confluence of football under the lights and the challenge presented by a top-level opponent seems to bring out the best in the Hawkeyes.

\u201cTo me personally, I don\u2019t care if we play at night or 11 in the morning. I always want to be on top of my game, but there is a unique atmosphere and usually a pretty good opponent when we do get the chance to plat night,\u2019\u2019 Jewell said. \u201cIt\u2019s a pretty cool thing, but it\u2019s even better when we play our best.\u2019\u2019

Iowa\u2019s insurance commissioner said Friday he has lost faith in Congress\u2019 ability to fix the nation\u2019s health care system.

Moreover, he thinks it would be better if federal money was distributed among states as block grants so officials closer to the people most affected by the uncertainty could take needed action.

Commissioner Doug Ommen said there are structural issues that need to be addressed \u2014 and addressed soon \u2014 to stabilize the insurance market, particularly for people with individual private coverage. But he added that he doesn\u2019t see a consensus building in Washington, D.C., to get that done.

\u201cThis has got to be fixed,\u201d Ommen said during a discussion of the challenges facing affordability, access and other issues dogging the health care arena during a panel at The Gazette\u2019s Iowa Ideas conference. \u201cI\u2019m a lot less optimistic that Congress can fix this, and I\u2019m sorry to say that.

\u201cSending it back to the states is probably our best option right now.\u201d

Ommen is awaiting word after having submitted the state\u2019s final plea \u2014 its stopgap proposal \u2014 to the federal government, asking for permission to make changes he thinkss will buoy Iowa\u2019s struggling Affordable Care Act marketplace.

This November, the majority of the 72,000 Iowans purchasing plans through the exchange will have only one option \u2014 Minnesota-based Medica, which recently asked the state for an average rate increase of 56.7 percent because of the uncertainty over cost-sharing reductions.

Nick Gerhart, a former state insurance commissioner now working in the private sector, said there is a lot of anxiety as Iowans are getting insurance cancellation notices amid the current uncertainty.

\u201cThere are real people at the end of these contracts,\u201d he said. \u201cThey\u2019re getting crushed. They don\u2019t know where to go. They don\u2019t know where to turn.\u201d

Under Iowa\u2019s ACA marketplace, federal payments are made to insurers to help cover costs and expand access for low-income individuals, but the future of the payments is now in jeopardy.

Ommen\u2019s stopgap proposal seeking a federal waiver seeks to provide consumers with age- and income-based tax credits as well as use a reinsurance mechanism for insurers for costly medical claims.

Ommen said the proposal is not meant to fix all the issues. But he thinks it can stabilize the market by bringing more healthy and young individuals into the ACA marketplace, which would help better spread out costs.

In addition, the use of reinsurance would attract insurers back to the marketplace, he said.

Given the tight timeline \u2014 as open enrollment is rapidly approaching \u2014 Ommen said the state agency is moving forward as if it had been given the go-ahead.

\u201cIt\u2019s crippling. It\u2019s crazy,\u201d he said of Congress\u2019 inaction on the health care issue. \u201cIt\u2019s uncharted waters in the middle of a hurricane.

\u201cThe work we have, it doesn\u2019t hold a candle to what families in Iowa are facing. This is really a serious problem.\u201d

The last filing deadline for municipal elections in Scott County has passed, setting the field for the upcoming races in October and November.

The most intrigue comes from Davenport's 6th Ward where five candidates have submitted filing papers to replace former Alderman Jeff Justin, who resigned from his post in July in order to relocate to Cape Coral, Florida.

Those candidates are Richard Clewell, Dale Gilmour, Ben Jobgen, Sean Liddell and Chris Webster. They will face off in the only primary election on Oct. 10 in which the top two vote-getters will advance on the ballot to the Nov. 7 regular election.

Within the city of Davenport, the other contested races in November involve the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Wards and the at-large aldermen positions.

In the 2nd Ward, incumbent Maria Dickmann will run against Mike Prunchak. Meanwhile, in the 4th Ward, Susan Weir is challenging Davenport's longest-sitting alderman Ray Ambrose.

Marion Meginnis, fresh off winning a special election in July to become the 3rd Ward alderwoman, will have a quick turnaround as Wil Patton has filed to run against her.

Meginnis defeated Carlton Wills in the special election after former alderman Bill Boom was forced to resign after he pleaded guilty to a felony charge of making a false declaration to a federal grand jury.

In Davenport's at-large races, four candidates will do battle for the two positions at stake.

Kyle Gripp is the only incumbent running for re-election after Jason Gordon announced his decision not to seek re-election last month. In the race to fill the two spots, Gripp is joined by Andrew Arnold, J.J. Condon and Toby Paone.

Incumbents Rick Dunn, Rita Rawson, Mike Matson and Kerri Tompkins are all running unopposed in the 1st, 5th, 7th and 8th wards, respectively.

Davenport Mayor Frank Klipsch also is unopposed as he seeks a second term.

As in Davenport, Bettendorf's races this election season are tame.

Aldermen Scott Naumann, 2nd Ward, and Greg Adamson, 4th Ward, are running opposed.

The only contested race is for the city's at-large position, which pits incumbent Lisa Brown against Kylah Rasche. Brown and Rasche had submitted their resumes at the beginning of the year as Bettendorf chose to appoint a replacement for former Alderman Gary Mohr.

Mohr resigned as alderman on Dec. 31, 2016, after he was elected to the Iowa House of Representatives to represent District 94.

After multiple elimination rounds, the Bettendorf City Council appointed Brown to fill the seat.

DES MOINES\u00a0\u2014 It took three patches totaling more than $260 million in spending cuts and borrowing, but the books on the state budget year that ended June 30 finally were closed last week.

Yet more difficult budget work lurks ahead.

When state lawmakers return to the Capitol in January, they will work on the state budget that begins next July 1 and starts with a $111 million repayment to the state\u2019s reserve accounts.

That puts the state budget behind the 8-ball from the start and will create significant hurdles for lawmakers who hope to increase funding for short-staffed state agencies, public education and water quality initiatives and pay for new budget elements such as tax reform and school choice programs.

\u201cI believe we\u2019re going to have challenges for (the next budget year),\u201d David Roederer, the budget director for Gov. Kim Reynolds, told reporters Wednesday. \u201cIt\u2019s probably going to be a challenge.\u201d

During the budget year that ended June 30, less money than expected came into the state\u2019s accounts, and because of that, lawmakers and the governor had planned to spend more than, as it turned out, they could afford. In order to balance the budget, they made $118 million in spending cuts and borrowed another $144 million from the state\u2019s reserve accounts.

Lawmakers will be watching revenues in hopes of avoiding a repeat during the current budget year.

When they return to Des Moines for the 2018 legislative session, lawmakers will debate and set spending for the state budget year that begins next July 1.

The state budget\u2019s future will be cloudy until next month, when the nonpartisan panel responsible for estimating future revenues is scheduled to meet and publish its financial forecast. The panel will meet again in December and, if necessary, revise its estimates.

That December estimate will be used by state lawmakers when they draft next year\u2019s budget.

Before writing a single item into the budget, they will start with a $111 million payment back to the state\u2019s reserve accounts to repay money borrowed to fix this past fiscal year's budget issues.

\u201cI\u2019m preparing for a challenging budget year,\u201d said Sen. Charles Schneider, who heads the Iowa Senate\u2019s budget committee.

Schneider added, however, that he is hopeful revenues will remain steady and perhaps even increase beyond expectations, which would lessen the burden on those responsible for drafting the next state budget. Schneider is hoping, for example, that federal tax reform, if passed, could result in additional state revenue.

Reynolds said she plans to recommend state agencies plan for a status quo budget\u00a0\u2014 no increases but no reductions\u00a0\u2014 and she and her staff will continue to monitor revenues as they come into the state.

Meantime, Reynolds said she will do what she can to spur growth in Iowa\u2019s economy.

\u201cWe\u2019ll have the departments come in with a status quo budget, and then we\u2019ll take a look at the revenues that we have to put our budget together with in December,\u201d Reynolds said. \u201cIn the meantime, what I\u2019m doing is looking for ways that we can grow the economy, and that means creating a competitive business environment.\u201d

If the next budget turns out be another tight one, Reynolds and lawmakers will face significant challenges in funding not only basic services that Iowans expect, but also to find money for new initiatives.

Primary among the latter is tax reform, a top priority of Republicans who in the 2016 elections gained full lawmaking control at the Iowa Capitol for the first time in two decades. Republican lawmakers strongly crave tax reform that includes lowered rates, but such action typically comes with a hefty price tag because it reduces the amount of revenue coming into the state.

Republican leaders acknowledged passing tax reform during the 2018 legislative session could prove challenging, given the current state of the budget. However, they remain hopeful they can pass something.

Doug Gross, who was former Gov. Terry Branstad\u2019s chief of staff in the 1980s and the Republican gubernatorial candidate in 2002, put it more bluntly:

\u201cNext to impossible,\u201d Gross said. \u201cTax reform costs money, and when you don\u2019t have any money, it\u2019s hard to pay for it. ... You might tinker, but you won\u2019t do reform without money.\u201d

Schneider is not yet ready to give up on passing tax reform and said Republican senators are working on a plan, but he acknowledges passing anything with a high cost will prove difficult.

Schneider said other states have passed tax reform measures that do not kick in until the state budget is sufficiently healthy, and that could be a model for Iowa next year. For example, he said a reform package could lower income tax rates by a certain percentage if the state\u2019s general fund revenue grows a certain percentage.

\u201cI think we\u2019ll be able to do something, I just don\u2019t know how significant it will be,\u201d Schneider said.

The recent need for budget adjustments, especially midstream, may lead Republican leaders in the near future to be stingier with state spending.

State law forbids spending more than 99 percent of the money available. Most years, state spending is set at or near that 99 percent level.

But key Republican lawmakers said they think it may be more prudent to set spending levels slightly lower in case revenues do not match expectations.

\u201cI think that definitely needs to be a part of our conversation right now,\u201d said Rep. Pat Grassley, who leads the Iowa House\u2019s budget committee. \u201cFrom my perspective, I think it is something that we definitely have to entertain, maybe being a little more conservative with our budget. ... We need to be prepared to spend less if this trend continues.\u201d

A new Trump administration analysis says that Iowa would initially lose money under the latest Republican proposal to replace the Affordable Care Act.

The analysis, which Axios and The Washington Post reported came from the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, is the latest in a string of reports trying to predict the impact of the Cassidy-Graham health care overhaul. The other projections come from private organizations. President Donald Trump has urged that the bill be passed.

This latest analysis measures how block grant funding would be allocated among the states in the individual years of 2020 and 2026.

The figures say that Iowa would lose $59 million in 2020, but by 2026, the state would gain $5 million over projected funding levels under the current law. Illinois would lose $264 million in 2020, growing to $345 million by 2026.

The GOP legislation, authored by Sens. Bill Cassidy, R-La., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., would eliminate Obamacare's premium subsidies and Medicaid expansion funding, beginning in 2020. It would then reduce the funding levels and repackage the money into block grants to be sent to the states. The money then would be reallocated among the states.

California and New York would be the biggest losers, according to the new analysis. The biggest gainers would be states, including Texas, that didn't expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. That finding is similar to other analyses over the past week.

Iowa fits somewhere toward the middle, and the various studies, which use different methods and all have a level of uncertainty, are predicting different results for Iowa. A Kaiser Family Foundation study projected Iowa would gain in the period between 2020 to 2026. All of the analyses have said that most states will lose money under the bill.

A Brookings Institution study, released Friday, predicted 21 million Americans nationwide would lose insurance from 2020 to 2026. After 2026, funding for the block grants would run out unless Congress renewed it.

Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, said Thursday she was leaning toward voting for the legislation. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, has praised it, although his office has said he's still studying it. Both senators have voted for previous GOP replacement plans.

The new Senate bill also would convert traditional Medicaid to a per-capita funding system, which several studies this week predicted would result in spending reductions, including in Iowa.

A former Davenport man was sentenced to six years and eight months in prison after he pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to U.S. Attorney Kevin E. VanderSchel.

Michael Scott Parker, 32, was sentenced Thursday by Chief U.S. District Court Judge John A. Jarvey. Parker also was ordered to serve three years of supervised release and pay $100 to the Crime Victims\u2019 Fund.

Here\u2019s what happened, according to VanderSchel:

On Aug. 28, 2016, Davenport police responded to a disturbance call and encountered Parker, who tried to flee while he was in possession of a loaded Taurus .38-caliber revolver.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and Davenport Police Department conducted the investigation in the case, which was prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney\u2019s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.

The Quad-City Mallards re-signed defenseman Alexander Kuqali and traded the rights to defenseman Desmond Bergin to the Adirondack Thunder Friday.

Kuqali rejoins the Mallards after tallying six assists in 28 games after he was acquired by Quad-City in a trade with the Florida Everblades. All told last year he tallied 16 assists in 63 games.

\u201cIt\u2019s great to have Alexander back in the Flock on our blue line. I expect his game to improve and his minutes to increase during his second pro season,\u201d Mallards coach Phil Axtell said. \u201cHe\u2019s well liked, he\u2019s respected by our seven other returners and he's great in the community. I\u2019m thrilled to have him in a Mallards sweater again this year.\u201d

Bergin was sent to Adirondack in exchange for future considerations after being acquired by the Mallards in a trade with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits on Aug. 14.

A Rock Island police officer responding to a domestic violence incident was injured and knocked unconscious Thursday.

The officer suffered\u00a0facial and head injuries and was hospitalized overnight for observation, according to a news release issued by Deputy Chief Jason Foy. The officer, who was not identified, has been released from the hospital, but he will not return to duty until he recovers from his injuries.

Cartier J. Leflore, 35, has been arrested and charged with aggravated battery-great bodily harm to a peace officer, a class 1 felony; aggravated battery, a class 2 felony; and disarming a peace officer, a class 1 felony.

At 6:17 p.m. Thursday, the Rock Island Police Department received a 911 call and later determined that it related to a domestic disturbance. Officers were dispatched to 219 21st St., and the first officer on scene immediately went to an apartment in the residence where he encountered Leflore, according to the release.

The officer attempted to arrest Leflore for domestic battery, but Leflore began battering the officer, the release stated. The officer was knocked unconscious, and Leflore took the officer's stun gun before fleeing the apartment. He was located in the area of 23rd Street and 3rd Avenue\u00a0by other officers shortly thereafter and was taken into custody after the officers subdued him with their stun guns.

Leflore is in custody at the Rock Island County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bond.

There\u2019s a little more to this serviceable horror flick than meets the eye.

To all appearances, it\u2019s just another creepy movie about nice-looking young people being killed in horrific ways. But there\u2019s something a little more substantial to \u201cFriend Request\u201d than you might imagine.

The story begins with Laura (Alycia Debnam-Carey, television\u2019s \u201cFear the Walking Dead\u201d) sitting among other students in a college psychology class. When the professor announces that a student who was in the class has committed suicide, Laura has quite a reaction.

The story then flashes back to two weeks prior. We see Laura as a popular, happy student with a bevy of friends, including hundreds on Facebook, and a handsome boyfriend. She has noticed a shy girl in the psychology class who takes an interest in Laura.

During a class, the professor teases Laura and her friend about having \u201cinternet addiction disorder.\u201d It\u2019s about that time that the bashful Marina (Liesl Ahlers, television\u2019s \u201cThe Crossing,\u201d) a transfer student, makes Laura\u2019s acquaintance.

Marina sits removed from the rest of the students, and hides under a black hoodie much of the time. The artistic student has no Facebook friends, but it\u2019s evident that she spends a lot of time on Facebook, because her Facebook site contains a lot of disturbing images and creepy, albeit beautiful, animation.

After Laura accepts Marina\u2019s friend request, Marina becomes needy and possessive. Disaster ensues.

Director Simon Verhoeven co-wrote the screenplay with Philip Koch and Matthew Ballen. These writers \u2014\u00a0or at least one of them \u2014\u00a0have a knack for bringing a bit of paranormal history and contemporary realism to the script.

Although the movie devolves into clich\u00e9s and, ultimately, exactly the resolution we anticipate \u2014\u00a0it\u2019s a lot like \u201cUnfriended\u201d \u2014\u00a0it has some intelligent and thought-provoking features.

Marina is well-written and will be familiar to many, if not most, viewers, especially to teachers (sadly, I have seen students like her in my own classrooms.)

The film also uses animation to a wonderful effect to create a chilling, surreal atmosphere. Some of the \u201cBoo!\u201d moments have been used in other horror movies, but some of them are pretty effective nonetheless. And I like the way Verhoeven creates claustrophobic environments.

Parents and guardians should be warned that this is not the \u201cPG-13\u201d material that it may seem to be. It\u2019s hardcore \u201cR\u201d and is not suitable for children or the squeamish.

If you\u2019ve already seen \u201cIt\u201d and seek a few more scares before the Halloween horror shows hit the screen, you\u2019ll find some scares and smarts here.

ACLU of Iowa files suit on behalf of Q-C transgender woman

\"EerieAnna

EerieAnna Good

The ACLU of Iowa has filed a lawsuit to challenge the Iowa Department of Human Services\u2019s ban on Medicaid coverage for surgical care for transgender Iowans, including a Quad-Cities woman.

Under current Medicaid rules, sex reassignment surgery is considered a cosmetic treatment and is not included in the government-sponsored insurance program that covers 600,000 low-income and needy Iowans.

The ACLU of Iowa filed the lawsuit on behalf of EerieAnna Good, who lives in the Quad-Cities, and Carol Ann Beal of northwest Iowa. The organization argues that excluding Iowa Medicaid coverage for the medical care sought by transgender people is a violation of the Iowa Civil Rights Act, which specifically prohibits discrimination based on gender identity, and the Iowa Constitution, which assures equal protection for all Iowans.

Four things the football teams from Iowa and Penn State can do to put themselves in a position to win Saturday night at Kinnick Stadium:

Penn State (3-0)

1. Be Penn State

The Nittany Lions won a Big Ten championship last season with a collection of explosive playmakers on offense, a sound defense and solid special teams. Many of those pieces return heading into this season's Big Ten opener.

Running back Saquon Barkley and tight end Mike Gesicki are preseason all-Americans for a reason. Barkley has averaged 102.3 rushing yards per game and his 11 catches trails only the 12 balls that Gesicki has caught this season.

Quarterback Trace McSorley finds himself with plenty of options, including receiver DaeSEan Hamilton who arrives at Kinnick Stadium with 170 catches on his resume.

That all adds up to an offense which has had 30 plays of 20 or more yards through three games, including the nine by Barkley which shares the national lead.

If Penn State's skill can spread the Iowa defense, the Hawkeyes will be in for a long night.

2. Repeat the feat

Penn State ground the Iowa running game to a halt a year ago in its 41-14 win over the Hawkeyes.

Iowa totaled just 30 yards on 26 carries, creating a one-dimensional offensive approach which played into the Nittany Lions' hands.

Penn State leads the Football Bowl Subdivision with 34 tackles for a loss so far this season, an effort led by Shareef Miller and his four tackles for a loss.

The team's defensive strength is in its linebackers, where Jason Cabinda leads the way with 15 stops through three games.

3. Be a pace setter

Penn State averages 469 yards of offense per game, helping itself by challenging defenses with a variety of tempos.

The Nittany Lions will go from zero to 95 in minimal time, mixing and matching pace within drives with great success in its effective run-pass option attack.

Quarterback Trace McSorley, the team's second-leading rusher at 45.7 yards per game, has completed 67.1 percent of his 76 passes this season. He's contributing 296.7 yards per game to lead an offense which has averaged 47 points per game. McSorley has thrown nine touchdown passes and has been intercepted twice this season.

4. Have special special teams

The Nittany Lions don't overlook this segment either and the work of DeAndre Thompkins on punt returns and Saquon Barkley on kick returns is positioning Penn State for success.

Thompkins has averaged 20.2 yards on 10 returns this season - nearly nine yards more than what Iowa has averaged - while Barkley is returning kicks at an average of 26.8 yards in four run backs through three games.

On the flip side, Penn State has allowed just one punt to be returned this season.

Iowa (3-0)

1. Establish the run, and them some

The Hawkeyes couldn't get anything going on the ground a year ago at Penn State, averaging 1.1 yards per carry.

That number has to change for Iowa to have a chance against the fourth-rated Nittany Lions. The Hawkeyes ability to gain ground on the ground and work the clock are critical components to Iowa's needs in this game.

Akrum Wadley is expected to be good to go after suffering a minor ankle injury during last Saturday's win over North Texas, but Iowa will be without back-up James Butler until mid-October.

Redshirt freshman Toren Young and true freshman Ivory Kelly-Martin will see the field today in a complementary role to Wadley and the Hawkeyes need production from each in addition to greater cohesion from an offensive line which has started three lineup combinations in Iowa's first three games because of injuries.

2. Clean up at Kinnick

Iowa positioned itself for last season's 14-13 victory over second-rated Michigan by playing a relatively clean football game.

The Hawkeyes and Wolverines traded one interception in that game, but Iowa had no fumbles and was penalized just three times for 24 yards in the victory.

Both are areas that have been bothersome for Iowa during its 3-0 start this season. The Hawkeyes had two touchdowns taken off the board last week against North Texas, the first because of a Nick Easley fumble out of the end zone and the second because of a penalty called on Akrum Wadley for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Iowa currently ranks 10th in the Big Ten in turnover margin, losing five fumbles and one interception through three games. The Hawkeyes have also been the fifth-most penalized team in the Big Ten, averaging 57.3 penalty yards and 6.3 penalties per game.

3. Deal with the heat

Temperatures in the 90s won't be the only heat the Hawkeyes are feeling today.

Penn State's defense is second in the Big Ten with 11 sacks through three games, an effort that includes contributions from 12 Nittany Lions and a team-leading two from Shareef Miller.

Expect Penn State to put some heat on Iowa sophomore quarterback Nate Stanley, who has been intercepted just once and has been sacked four times through three games.

Iowa's ability to keep the heat off of Stanley will be important as he faces a defense which will test his quick decision making as well as his physical abilities.

4. Rule the night

There is something special about night games at Kinnick Stadium.

Iowa is 10-4 all-time in home games played under the lights including a pair of wins in each of the last two seasons and a 3-0 record all-time at night against top-five opponents there.

Penn State is the last road team to win at Kinnick at night, beating Iowa 38-14 in 2012 in the Nittany Lions' most recent visit.

The Hawkeyes' ability to make the most of what promises to be a special atmosphere will center in part around Iowa's ability to contain Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley and make him work out of the pocket. Iowa was able to make that happen in its opener against Wyoming and Josh Allen. A repeat performance of that effort will be needed.

CEDAR RAPIDS \u2014 Iowa\u2019s human services chief took a tough negotiating stance Thursday, saying he will not ease the state\u2019s oversight and accountability requirements for private companies managing Iowa\u2019s $5 billion Medicaid program and \u201cwrite them a blank check\u201d in the interest of getting a new contract.

Jerry Foxhoven, director of the Iowa Department of Human Services, conceded it is well past the time he expected it would take to negotiate Medicaid rates with three managed care organizations that will be retroactive to July 1.

The state has contracted with Amerigroup, AmeriHealth Caritas Iowa and UnitedHealthcare Plan of Iowa to manage care since April 2016 for 767,000 Iowans. Human Services negotiators have reached tentative agreement for a new contract with one company, but talks are continuing with the two others.

\u201cWe have to be firm,\u201d Foxhoven said during a discussion on the future of Medicaid in Iowa that was part of the two-day Iowa Ideas conference, organized by The Gazette, that ends Friday.

\u201cWe have to be willing to say if you don\u2019t actually manage care, if you don\u2019t actually keep it below fee-for-services, if you don\u2019t actually allow us to manage it to make sure that we have some oversight of you, we will not give up that oversight ,and if you\u2019re not willing to do that and you need to walk, then you need to walk, and we\u2019ll replace you.\u201d

Foxhoven noted that other states have been unable to reach agreements with insurers once they had privatized their Medicaid programs, which he said can be a sign of success if the government agency is standing up for the interest of patients, providers, caregivers and clients being served. In Iowa\u2019s case, that\u2019s one out of every four residents, he said.

Foxhoven, a lawyer and a litigator who took over the Human Services reins in June, said he has been absorbed in talks over the 100-page plus contracts, including Thursday morning before the conference and on the car ride from Des Moines to Cedar Rapids to the point where \u201cI feel like I have PTSD right now\u201d from working with the companies.

He said he was \u201cvery, very optimistic\u201d about reaching agreements, but if not, \u201cthen we\u2019ll get other people to do it.

\u201cIf that has to happen, I\u2019m hoping it doesn\u2019t, but if that happens, it\u2019s not going to be a pretty transition, but we will hold the (companies) accountable,\u201d he told conference participants.

Foxhoven\u2019s comments came during a segment in which co-panelist state Sen. Liz Mathis, D-Robins, raised concerns about problems Iowans and health care providers have faced during Medicaid\u2019s transition to privately managed care.

She expressed concern about the potential for future problems if federal officials shift to funding the system to block grants given the states.

A representative of one of Iowa\u2019s largest health care providers, Jean Robillard, vice president for medical affairs of the $1.9 billion University of Iowa Health Care enterprise and dean of the university's Carver College of Medicine, said Iowa\u2019s biggest and most-profitable hospital saw a spike in denials from Medicaid managed-care payers and a corresponding drop in the hospital\u2019s collection rate.

Speaking during a separate health care discussion, Robillard said the working relationship with the Medicaid companies has improved over time but added, \u201cit\u2019s still not all resolved.\u201d

\u201cWe\u2019d like to see a stabilization of some of the payment issues,\u201d he said. \"We\u2019re gradually making progress with the (companies) on that front. We still have a little ways to go, but we\u2019d like to get past that.\"

Robillard and Jennifer Vermeer, University of Iowa assistant vice president for health policy and population health, said the health care industry is facing considerable uncertainty as policymakers revamp the Affordable Care Act and shift the focus to valued-based delivery rather than a fee-for-service system.

Robillard said health care providers are paid based on quality and the ability to decrease costs, but he said the focus has to continue to include safety and outcomes.

\u201cWe don\u2019t set the price, the insurance companies do. I understand that. We are the price-taker, we\u2019re not the price-setter. We are probably the only business in this world where we don\u2019t set the price,\u201d he said. \u201cImagine if you were going to Target and you could go in the store and set the price of what you want to buy. Well, this is a little bit the way it is for us. We have to adjust our cost based upon what we have.\u201d

Vermeer said fee-for-service drove a lot of costs and fragmentation of services and the system is in the process of being re-engineered.

\u201cIt\u2019s going to be a long journey,\u201d she said. \"We\u2019ve been at it for a number of years, and we\u2019re beginning to make progress, and I think you\u2019re seeing this across the country. But I think it\u2019s also apparent that it\u2019s going to take quite some time to get there.\"
