Davenport speed cameras observe East River Drive traffic in this file photo.

City officials are considering the continuation of its automated traffic camera contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc., though $6.5 million in fines remains uncollected.

The city of Davenport is considering the continuation of its automated traffic camera contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc.

Finance Director Brandon Wright said the new contract calls for a distribution of $21 to Redflex and $44 to the city for a $65 ticket.\u00a0 Previously, Redflex was receiving $24 per $65 ticket.

Wright estimated automated red-light and speeding citations account for $1.3-$1.5 million a year in fines. Collecting the fines, however, remains a challenge. Find out why.

The city of Davenport is considering the continuation of its automated traffic camera contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc.

Five responses were received after a request for proposals was issued to 137 vendors and Redflex was recommended after the three top scoring firms were invited to interview.

The city also received responses from American Traffic Solutions, Inc., Automated Enforcement Division, Gatso USA, Inc. and Optotraffic.

Finance Director Brandon Wright said the new contract calls for a distribution of $21 to Redflex and $44 to the city for a $65 ticket.

Previously, Redflex was receiving $24 per $65 ticket.

Once the number of tickets reaches a specific threshold, the city's take also rises as Redflex's portion drops to $16 per ticket.

Wright estimated automated red-light and speeding citations account for $1.3-$1.5 million a year in fines.

Collecting the fines, however, remains a challenge.

Unpaid debt

As part of the contract, services include provision and installation of new equipment, system upgrades and maintenance, violation identification assistance, management information reports, citation processing and mailing services, and payment collection.

Payment collection has consistently been in issue in Davenport.

Two years ago, Davenport gave drivers with outstanding camera tickets partial amnesty for two months as a way encourage payment from the 27,000 drivers who racked up $3.5 million in unpaid tickets.

Out-of-state drivers were responsible for more than one-third of the traffic camera violations.

The city waived a $25 collection fee so drivers would only have had to pay the $65 fine.

Following the amnesty period, the city turned to the Department of Revenue's debt collection program to block license plate renewals for those with outstanding citations.

Wright said the Department of Revenue and Department of Transportation got cold feet as the date approached and nixed the idea.

The idea has never been revisited and would have been the first time the Department of Revenue's Central Collection Unit had been used for collecting traffic camera citations.

Instead, the city uses Municipal Collections of America for debt collection after 60 days of nonpayment.

Wright said outstanding camera ticket debt has now ballooned to $6.5 million.

\"We've never written off debt, but at some point, we may think about doing it,\" Wright said.

Checkered past

While Davenport continues its traffic camera program, many municipalities have made changes to their approach for camera systems.

Redflex's own history has not inspired confidence in other cities especially after a former executive was involved in bribing government officials for contracts in Cincinnati, Columbus and Chicago.

Karen Finley, the former CEO of RedFlex, was sentenced in Ohio to 14 months in federal prison before U.S. District Court Judge Virginia Kendall handed out a two-and-a-half year sentence on Nov. 10 in Illinois.

The sentences will run concurrently.

In her plea for leniency, Finley called Redflex a \"toxic and soul-sucking place to work.\"

Redflex also has been sued in a number of other states including New Mexico, where the company and Creditwatch settled a $3.5 million class action lawsuit for using robocalls to collect on 89,000 unpaid tickets.

In evaluating proposals for automated traffic enforcement, the following criteria were used to grade firms:

Wright said the recommendation of Redflex came from a review panel consisting of representation from the police department, the revenue side of the finance department and the information technology department.

Although collection methods were considered in evaluating proposals, Wright said it was important to realize that the collections outside of 60 days are being handled by another party.

\"Federal agencies have a lot of protections for what they can do on the consumer side,\" Wright said. \"But, they're not doing the actual collection past 60 days.\"

A federal judge has granted prosecutors\u2019 request to permanently forfeit 27 of 64 pit bulls seized earlier this year in connection with an alleged dog-fighting ring in the Quad-Cities.

The Dec. 2 ruling by U.S. District Judge Sara Darrow will allow the U.S. Marshals Service to \u201cdispose\u201d of the dogs, which includes transporting them to a shelter or other appropriate organization.

The dogs have been held at a temporary shelter run by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals since they were seized.

Darrow also granted prosecutors\u2019 request to humanely euthanize two additional pit bulls who have become \u201caggressive and agitated, pose a danger to their handlers and have little prospect of rehabilitation.\u201d

\u201cThese dogs are the tragic victims of dog fighting, and the ASPCA is continuing to work with prosecutors to ensure their abusers are held responsible,\u201d ASPCA spokeswoman Kelly Krause said Wednesday.

Krause said placement decisions have not yet been made for the dogs as of Wednesday.

\u201cOur animal behaviorists have been conducting behavior evaluations for each individual dog, and those dogs that are suitable for adoption will be placed with our partner shelters across the country,\u201d she said.

Federal and local law enforcement and the ASPCA removed 64 dogs from a dozen homes in Rock Island and Davenport on April 14.

One of the dogs taken from one Rock Island home died the next day while being transported to a temporary shelter because of severe anemia, according to court documents.

Krause did not have a specific amount the ASPCA has spent on the dogs\u2019 care, but the organization has spent significant resources providing veterinary care and temporary shelter.

She added the government is providing funds for some costs of caring for the animals.

No charges have been filed in the case, although federal prosecutors confirmed in May a criminal investigation is under way.

On April 15, prosecutors filed a 15-page complaint for forfeiture and claimed the dogs are subject to seizure and forfeiture because they were used as gambling devices and were involved in a violation of the Animal Welfare Act. The measure regulates the treatment of animals in research, exhibition, transport and by dealers.

Confidential sources and cooperating witnesses provided information to law enforcement that several individuals in the area have been involved or participated in an illegal dog-fighting operation, including gambling on dog fights in Illinois, Iowa, Alabama and Mississippi, according to the complaint.

They also have purchased and transported dogs from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Alabama and Mississippi, according to the complaint.

The complaint claims, in at least two cases, dogs that lost a fight were killed by their owners and then hung by the neck in front of spectators.

The complaint named 17 individuals believed to be involved in dog fighting. No charges have been filed against them as of Tuesday.

Prosecutors filed an emergency motion for default in October against 14 individuals \u2014 five of whom they have named as possible participants in the ring \u2014 served in the case who did not file a claim or answer to contest the forfeiture of any of the dogs.

That same month, prosecutors also filed the motion seeking to euthanize the two additional dogs.

The dogs were taken from two homes in the 1800 block of West 8th Street in Davenport and the 400 block of 7th Street in Rock Island.

Both locations contained \u201cstrong indicia\u201d of dog fighting, including training devices, medications, documents and kennels with a lack of access to food and water, Darrow noted in her Dec. 2 order.

Darrow wrote that despite rehabilitative efforts, the two dogs have shown aggression toward their handlers and they are experiencing an \u201cextremely reduced quality of life.\u201d

She also noted in her order that the owners who filed written claims to the dogs do not have procedural standing in the case because they did not make a verified complaint, meaning that it was made under oath and under penalty of perjury, which is required to proceed in the civil forfeiture case.

Eight other people have filed claims for the rest of the dogs. Only one person, a woman who was not named as a possible participant in the dog fighting ring, has filed a verified claim.\u00a0

The claims have not yet been resolved.\u00a0

Reflecting on the twists and turns of his career, Brad Morrison brings to mind Yogi Berra, who once observed: \u201cIt\u2019s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.\u201d

Morrison is the owner of Riverbend Signworks, which recently relocated to the I-74 Technology Park near Utica Ridge Road and Tanglefoot Lane.

In the last 25 years, numerous print companies have been bought out, disappeared or downsized, Morrison says, because printed materials, such as phone books, catalogues, magazines and text books have migrated to the digital medium available to consumers through the internet and smart phones. His career has reflected that shift, which led him to jobs in Cincinnati, Ohio, Midland, Des Moines and Eldridge.

A year after arriving in Eldridge, his employer was bought out, and the facility closed. Morrison and his wife, Mary Jo, faced a decision: Continue their peripatetic lifestyle or reinvent their work life? With two daughters, Mecca and Madison, in Pleasant Valley High School and a growing fondness for the Quad-City area quality of life, the Morrisons decided to remain in Bettendorf.

Morrison joined Ivie, a Texas-based marketing solutions company with an office in Davenport. There he learned the skills necessary to make small businesses successful. For example, costs must be closely managed, employees supervised and relationships with customers tended. He added this to his previous work experience, which taught a knowledge of processes and systems needed to create consistent products, and methods to measure performance and success.

A year later Morrison was ready to launch his own company. He first assessed his financial resources and determined the market to pursue, based on what he enjoyed doing and his related skills. He sought counsel from other small business owners. The sign business, with graphic processes similar to the print industry, particularly attracted him. He also believed the demand for high quality signs remains constant, unlike other printed material, because attractive and inventive signs enhance name and product recognition and present a professional appearance.

Rather than burdening his company with loan debt, Morrison decided to invest his retirement savings in the new business. He located his shop in Bettendorf to save drive time and chose environmentally friendly equipment. He learned critical lessons about opening a new business that year. First, it takes a year to build cash flow for business operations. Second, he needed to acquire sales and marketing expertise, since \u201cno one knows you are there.\u201d Third, he became his own human resources department, recognizing employing and training the right employees can be critical to a small business and terminating those who do not work out is stressful. Employee turnover is a speed bump on the road to efficiency and profitability.

Throughout the process, Morrison consulted his wife, Mary Jo, about the risks and rewards of their business plan. They work together daily at the shop, though she also is employed part-time at a preschool, which gives them time apart and helps separate home life and business demands. Their daughter, Mecca, is also an employee, marketing company services and products.

Morrison recognized the importance of striking a balance between work and family life. To that end, his father, David, encouraged him to learn to play the bagpipes. With daughters, Mecca and Madison, he joined a pipe band and traveled to Scotland last summer for the World Pipe Band Championship in Glasgow, Scotland. He also has become involved in community activities, such as Rotary and the Bettendorf Business Network, and volunteers with several social service agencies. Giving back to the community is important for Morrison.

No one can predict where the future will take Morrison next. But, as Yogi Berra also said: \u201cIt ain\u2019t over until it over.\u201d

The Salvation Army is hoping more money gets thrown into the red kettles, especially Saturday.

An anonymous donor will match donations put in the kettles Saturday \u2014 up to $10,000 \u2014 on each side of the Mississippi River, amounting to a $20,000 match, said Sarah Hite, development director for The Salvation Army of the Quad-Cities.

\u201cThe timing of this match day couldn\u2019t be any better for the Red Kettle Campaign,\u201d said Major Gary Felton, The Salvation Army\u2019s Quad-Cities coordinator.

This year\u2019s Red Kettle Campaign goal is $815,000. As of Wednesday only $325,285 had been collected, he said.

The Red Kettle campaign provides 60 percent of the annual budget used by The Salvation Army to provide people with basic needs, warm shelter and nutritious food, new life skills, character building, and anything necessary to help community members achieve healthy, productive living, Felton said.

But it takes bell ringers to make the donations happen, he said.

\u201cWe are noticing that the lack of bell ringers and therefore we are behind on donations,\u201d Felton said. \u201cEvery day we run further and further behind. We are cautiously optimistic we will meet our goal because of the generosity of the Quad-City community and this anonymous donor.\u201d

Unless someone is ringing a bell, people usually don\u2019t donate, he said.

Felton said another anonymous donor has said if The Salvation Army can fill 250 of its two-hour volunteer shifts on Saturday and Dec. 17, the donor will make a $5,000 donation.

\u201cThis donor realizes the need for bell ringers in helping to reach the 2016 Red Kettle Campaign goal,\u201d Felton said.

Anyone who would like to volunteer to ring the bell for The Salvation Army can go to ringbells.org or contact Sarah Hite at 563-324-4808.

A Davenport man who is in the Scott County Jail awaiting trial for allegedly shooting a man in July is now facing charges in connection with another shooting in August.

On Wednesday, Davenport police served Micah Lee Bates Jr., 28, with charges of attempted murder, willful injury causing serious injury and felon in possession of a firearm.

According to the arrest affidavits filed by Davenport Police Detective Bill Thomas, on Aug. 21 at 11:47 p.m., Bates and another co-defendant drove to the area of East 12th and Judson streets. The men were armed with handguns that had laser sights attached to them.

Bates and the co-defendant then shot the victim multiple times \u201cwith the intent to cause his death,\u201d according to the arrest affidavit.

The victim survived after undergoing surgery at University Hospitals, Iowa City.

Attempted murder is a Class B felony under Iowa law that carries a prison sentence of up to 25 years.

Willful injury causing serious injury is a Class C felony that carries a prison sentence of up to 10 years, while being a felon in possession of a firearm is a Class D felony that carries a prison sentence of up to five years. However, federal prosecutors could choose to prosecute Bates for the firearms charges, under the Safe Neighborhoods Act. Federal charges carry longer sentences and there is no parole in the federal prison system.

In the other shooting case, on July 9 at 11:33 p.m., Bates was in the parking lot at 826 E. River Dr. armed with a .40-caliber semi-automatic handgun, according to the arrest affidavit filed by Thomas. While in the parking lot, Bates got into an argument with two other people and began firing at them. One of the victims was struck in the leg.

In that case, Bates is charged with willful injury causing bodily injury, felon in possession of a firearm, going armed with intent and intimidation with a dangerous weapon.

During the time of both of these incidents Bates was on work release from the Iowa Department of Corrections.

Bates also is charged in another incident with second-degree burglary, operating while intoxicated, eluding, leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving, driving under suspension, and second-degree criminal mischief.

Bates is being held in the Scott County Jail on $110,000 cash-only bond, and a $25,000 surety bond on all of the charges, and he is being held without bond for violating the conditions of his work release.

Stacie Kintigh has worked in special education for 25 years, but her newest endeavor may be one of the most rewarding experiences of her career.

Kintigh is an instructor for Project SEARCH, a new initiative to the Quad-Cities that provides classroom instruction and workplace internships to students with physical and intellectual disabilities in hopes of preparing them for future employment.

\"We have tears of joy on a regular basis because watching them mature and grow as young adults is so truly rewarding,\" Kintigh said.

The initiative is a collaboration between UnityPoint Health \u2014 Trinity, Bettendorf School District, North Scott School District, Pleasant Valley School District, Goodwill Industries, Vocational Rehabilitation and Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency.

Eight students, four from Bettendorf and two each from Pleasant Valley and North Scott, are currently taking part in three 10-week rotations at Trinity Bettendorf.

Kintigh said Project SEARCH recommends a minimum of six and maximum of 12 students at a time and just like procuring any job, the students go through an application process and interview.

From 8-9 a.m., the students have classroom learning, followed by their scheduled work from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. before ending the day with journal time for the last 30 minutes.

\"What I'm getting out of it is job skills, learning how to work with people, learning how to be responsible and be an adult,\" said one student, Sydney Moore.

Nick Browne, a 20-year-old student from Bettendorf, helps clean and restock rooms and loves the experience he is getting at the hospital.

\"I think it'll be great because I've been working on building up stamina, working and enjoying fun with other employees,\" Browne said. \"It'll be fun to have a good job.\"

While there are other resources in the area, Kintigh said she has never seen a program so intense that focuses on job and independent living skills.

\"We don't talk about going to class or training,\" Kintigh said. \"We talk about getting our work done to the highest standards possible and meeting par levels and performance levels in our departments. It's very important we graduate with the skills that are equal to or better than anything that would be expected of us in our workplace.\"

Kintigh said high school educators struggle to fit the work piece, which she called essential, into the day-to-day schedule.

\"The requirements for students are very high,\" Kintigh said. \"We understand the need for core education, but we also believe and have a passion for transitional education for students. This takes all the real things in life and puts them in the workplace.\"

According to National Core Indicators, only 17 percent of people with disabilities have jobs.

Project SEARCH, which been existence for more than 20 years and has about 400 locations domestically and internationally, boasted a 75.5 percent employment rate for graduates last year.

\"Project SEARCH literally turns it on its head,\" Kintigh said.

About one-third of participants gain employment at their host sites while the remaining two-thirds find employment in their communities.

For the eight students in this year's program, Kintigh said the goal was 100 percent employment.

Although the program is in its inaugural year, North Scott High School assistant principal Frank Wood said it's taken two years to put the pieces in place.

\"We took two years to get this program started and it wasn't without trying to find the funding to get this going,\" Wood said. \"With the riverboat grants, we were able to purchase rights for Project SEARCH. which provided us with the instruction, materials and professional development.\"

While many of the students understand they will require support services in the future, they still want to be contributors to the system, which is why Kintigh said the program wants to help them make that happen.

\"They want to work so desperately and be contributing members of society and to hear 'I want to work. I want to be independent,' they know that their independence is dependent on their working status,\" Kintigh said. \"I can't put words to it. It's so exciting to see every day when they make those commitments.\"

More loft apartments are coming to downtown Davenport.

Developer Joe Erenberger and Y&J Properties intend to rehabilitate the upper floors of the Bucktown Building, located at 225 E. 2nd St., into market rate loft apartments.

Erenberger said the proposed plan calls for 21-22 total units, consisting of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.

The majority of the units will be two-bedroom apartments.

In terms of amenities, Erenberger said the interiors would look similar to the Peterson Paper building with hardwood floors and granite counter tops.

Pricing will range from $800 to $2,000 per unit, or about $1.25-$1.30 per square foot.

As for the current inhabitants, the Midcoast Gallery previously operated on the first and second floor, but it has consolidated its works on the ground floor.

The upper floors were once used as residential condos, but they have been cleared out.

Erenberger said construction will take 10 to 12 months, so the building should be ready to go by this time next year.

The city of Davenport will consider passing a resolution supporting a workforce housing tax credit for the project at its Dec. 14 council meeting.

With the growing interest in loft apartments and living downtown, Erenberger said the project will help meet the demand for housing.

\"Right now, everything is pretty much filled up,\" Erenberger said. \"The city said it would like there to be a 5 percent vacancy rate, but there are definitely not enough units and we have a number of people already on our waiting lists. At this rate, it will be that way for awhile.\"

City officials are considering the continuation of its automated traffic camera contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc., though $6.5 million in fines remains uncollected.

The city of Davenport is considering the continuation of its automated traffic camera contract with Redflex Traffic Systems, Inc.

Finance Director Brandon Wright said the new contract calls for a distribution of $21 to Redflex and $44 to the city for a $65 ticket.\u00a0 Previously, Redflex was receiving $24 per $65 ticket.

Wright estimated automated red-light and speeding citations account for $1.3-$1.5 million a year in fines. Collecting the fines, however, remains a challenge. Find out why.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) \u2014 A federal judge in Illinois has refused to move Aaron Schock's corruption case from Springfield to Peoria at the former congressman's request.

The 35-year-old Schock is accused of using government and campaign money to subsidize a lavish lifestyle, as well as pocketing thousands of constituents' dollars. The (Peoria) Journal Star reported (http://bit.ly/2geLctm ) Wednesday that U.S. District Judge Sue Myerscough said in her opinion that keeping the case in Springfield doesn't hurt Schock, but that it could delay other cases she is hearing.

Schock requested the move last month, arguing that the Peoria court was more convenient and appropriate. Prosecutors didn't want the case moved.

Prosecutors say the disgraced Republican hosted Washington tours and meet-and-greets, charged a fee and kept some of the cash.

Schock is to be arraigned Monday.

CARTERVILLE, Ill. (AP) \u2014 The Illinois board in charge of community colleges has approved distribution of $3 million in emergency funds to help schools across the state that are in need.

Illinois Community College Board chairman Lazaro Lopez said during Wednesday's meeting in Carterville that Illinois community colleges will continue to struggle until there is a stable budget in Springfield. The state hasn't had a budget for 18 months. A partial spending plan expires at the end of the year.

The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan reports (http://bit.ly/2hoyuJK ) state law says the Illinois Board of Higher Education must consult with the community college board for financial emergencies. The higher education board last month reserved $3 million for community colleges.

Community college board members say the exact distribution of the money will be determined after a \"yes\" vote from the higher education board.

RIVERTON, Iowa (AP) \u2014 A state audit of financial records for Riverton in southwest Iowa has discovered nearly $331,000 in improper or unsupported spending and undeposited collections.

The special audit was undertaken at the request of city officials concerned about transactions processed by former city clerk Carol Jennings from January 2008 through Feb. 28, 2015. The council fired Jennings on Feb. 26, 2015.

The audit report issued Thursday says more than $149,000 in undeposited collections included nearly $115,000 in utility payments to the city that weren't deposited in city accounts. The report also says the undeposited collections included nearly $33,000 placed in two bank accounts Jennings had established without council authority or knowledge.

A phone number listed for Jennings is no longer in service. Online court records don't show that she's been charged.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) \u2014 It may seem odd for the governor of a lightly populated agricultural state to be chosen as U.S. ambassador to China, especially amid escalating talk of a trade war with the major U.S. trading partner.

But Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad boasts a 30-year relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping, the most powerful Chinese leader in decades.

\"Given Xi's penchant to keeping things close-hold, it is important for the U.S. to have a reliable and direct communication channel to him,\" said Bonnie Glaser, senior adviser for Asia at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. \"Branstad has met Xi periodically since 1985 and has a personal relationship with him that could be very useful.\"

This relationship, begun when both men were political upstarts, could be put to the test in coming months if Branstad is confirmed.

President-elect Donald Trump, who announced his choice of Branstad on Wednesday, said during the campaign that his administration would make closing the U.S. trade deficit with China a top priority. Through the first 10 months of the year, government figures show the United States is running a $288.8 billion deficit with China on the trade of goods, a sharp decline from the same time a year ago.

But Trump has suggested imposing 45 percent tariffs on Chinese products and has labeled the country a \"currency manipulator.\" Chinese officials have warned that the U.S. is bound by World Trade Organization rules, which restrain countries from imposing sanctions without making a persuasive case.

In that way, Trump's selection of Branstad appears to be savvy.

Patrick Cronin, senior director of the Asia-Pacific security program at the Center for a New American Security, said that by selecting an ambassador who has forged commercial ties between his state and China, Trump was signaling to Xi that as leaders they will have the same fundamental priority in seeking economic growth.

In 1985, Branstad was nearing the end of his first term as governor, then the nation's youngest at age 39. Xi was a rising leader seeking ideas in Iowa for crop and livestock techniques to help his own agriculturally rich region.

In 2013, he returned to Iowa as China's incoming president and met with Branstad for a formal dinner in Des Moines between meetings in Washington with President Barack Obama and a trip to California.

If Trump's threats suggest the U.S.-China relationship could be bumpy, Branstad's longtime relationship with Xi could help smooth things. His personal touch could go a long way in avoiding conflict caused by miscommunication or misinterpretation.

Trump angered China by speaking to Taiwan's president last week in a breach of diplomatic protocol. China still regards the island as part of its territory and would consider it unacceptable for the U.S. to recognize Taiwan's leader as a head of state.

China's state-run news agency Xinhua said in a Thursday commentary that Branstad's appointment is a \"positive signal sent amid a mixture of messages from Trump,\" a reference to Trump's call with Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen and his criticism of China on trade and geopolitical issues.

At a daily news briefing on Thursday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said China considered the position of U.S. ambassador to Beijing to be \"an important bridge\" and that \"Governor Branstad is an old friend of the Chinese people.\"

Cronin said he wouldn't overstate the importance of the role of an ambassador in the modern era or the depth of Branstad's personal ties with Xi. \"I don't think anyone is a drinking buddy of Xi Jinping, but familiarity is useful and could advance U.S. diplomacy,\" he said.

Branstad's rapport with Xi could also outweigh the courtly, 70-year-old Midwesterner's lack of formal diplomatic experience, though he has made multiple trips to China to pitch Iowa's robust harvests, as recently as last month.

Knowing the Chinese leader personally is even more important than it might have been in the past. Previous Chinese leaders ruled by consensus, but Xi has consolidated power in his hands, ousting rivals in an anti-corruption campaign and taking on responsibility for economic policy, typically the purview of the government's No. 2 official, now Li Keqiang.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio appeared to criticize the choice Wednesday, calling for the Trump administration to press China's government and ruling Communist Party to respect human rights and uphold the rule of law.

\"It is my hope that this new administration will appoint an ambassador to China that reflects these priorities, not simply someone who is going there to catch up with old friends,\" Rubio said without mentioning Branstad by name.

Trump, who met with Branstad Tuesday in New York, travels Thursday to Iowa.

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) \u2014 Authorities are expected to release dashcam video Thursday of a traffic stop in which a white officer shot and paralyzed an unarmed black motorist.

The Nov. 1 shooting of Jerime Mitchell by officer Lucas Jones has sparked protests in Cedar Rapids.

A grand jury declined Monday to charge Jones. The county prosecutor defended that decision, saying Jones fired in self-defense during a scuffle in which Mitchell was trying to drive away.

Mitchell's supporters have criticized the decision because the grand jury never heard testimony from Mitchell, who disputes the officer's version.

In a statement Wednesday, Mitchell said Jones was combative. Mitchell says he got back in his truck to try to get away from an attacking police dog before Jones jumped on him and shot him.

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. (AP) \u2014 Sears, the one-time standard bearer for U.S. retail, has posted quarterly losses for more than a year now, and sales continue to slide as the company shutters poorly performing stores.

The company's cash situation, which has led in the past to clashes with suppliers, is an ongoing concern. Cash and cash equivalents fell another 12 percent from last year at this time, to $258 million.

On Thursday, Sears said it had $174 million remaining in a $1.97 billion revolving credit facility.

In the spring, Sears said that it was exploring its options for its Kenmore, DieHard and Craftsman brands, in addition to its vast real estate holdings.

It continues to do so.

\"We will continue to take actions to generate liquidity, adjust our overall capital structure, and manage our business while meeting all of our financial obligations,\" said Chief Financial Officer Jason Hollar. \"Actions may include additional expense reductions, financing transactions and asset monetization including exploring alternatives for our Kenmore, Craftsman and DieHard brands, our Sears Home Services business and our real estate portfolio.\"

The Hoffman Estates, Illinois, company, which also owns Kmart, lost $748 million, or $6.99 per share, in the most recent quarter. It was the fifth consecutive quarter of losses. In the same quarter last year, Sears lost $454 million, or $4.26 per share.

Losses adjusted for one-time items were $3.11 per share.

Revenue declined to $5.03 billion from $5.75 billion, as some locations were closed. The company at the end of this fiscal year will probably post its first decade of declining annual sales.

Sales at stores open at least a year, a key indicator of a retailer's health, tumbled 7.4 percent. Those sales fell 10 percent at Sears, and 4.4 percent at Kmart.

Chairman and CEO Edward Lampert that Sears Holdings Corp. continues to work toward returning to profitability.

That has become difficult for even industry leading chains as online sales sap traditional retail stores of traffic.

Further jolting Sears, now deep into the crucial holiday shopping season, is the recent departure of key executives.

Executive Vice President Jeffrey Balagna left last month, according to a regulatory filing. And Joelle Maher, who served as president and chief member officer for Sears, recently departed.

Hollar took over for CFO Rob Schriesheim, who departed earlier this year.

Shares, down 41 percent this year, slid more than 3 percent before the opening bell.
