The Rock Island County Board will, once again, take up the issue of whether to raze the old courthouse.

During Wednesday's committee-of-the-whole meeting, board members will debate whether to put a thumbs-up or thumbs-down vote on the Dec. 19 board meeting agenda.

In a letter to the board dated Dec. 7, Walter Braud, chief judge of the 14th Judicial Circuit, who has made clear his desires to tear down the 121-year-old courthouse, said the cost to raze the building and put green space in its place would be $1.6 million.

Braud said the Public Building Commission has the money so it will not cost Rock Island County taxpayers anything extra to demolish the building. The breakdown, he said, is $450,000 for asbestos removal, $400,000 for demolition and $750,000 for a memorial park.\u00a0

The $1.6 million was money that came out of the annex construction budget.

Braud has not said how the figures were derived. Workers are already are on site constructing the courthouse annex and having them do this work would save money, he said.\u00a0

While some board members are ready to tear down the building, others want to explore the issue a few months longer.

Braud said in his letter that, \u201cdelay will result in a boarded-up building that is unacceptable for safety and aesthetic reasons,\u201d and it will \u201cshift the cost to raze the building to the County.\u201d

Braud said that if the board rejects the offer the $1.6 million \"will be released to the annex budget so that architects will have adequate planning time to address other project needs that were set aside.\"

\u201cPast behavior is a reliable predictor of future conduct,\u201d Braud said. \u201cNext fall, if some have their way, we will be in the same dilapidated place that we are in today, except you won\u2019t have any money to raze the courthouse and continued delay will be attributed to lack of funds.\u201d

But some board members are wondering why, if the money could be used to raze the building now, those funds would not be available in a few months.

Some board members have accused Braud of using the $1.6 million to force the board into a decision it is not ready to make.

\u201cClearly nothing is as important as a $900,000 park, which to me screams waste,\u201d said board member Richard Brunk of Moline. (Braud originally quoted the price of the park at $900,000.) \u201cI don\u2019t know of a board member who is comfortable with spending that much money on a green space. Throw down some grass seed or some sod or whatever. But spending hundreds of thousands of dollars? No way; those are public funds. You can\u2019t justify it.\u201d

Brunk said there is the potential for a capital bill coming out of Springfield in July. And there are other possible funding sources that need to be explored. Construction workers will still be working on the annex in July, he said, so why not make that the deadline?

\u201cIt comes down to what type of window is reasonable,\u201d Brunk said. There is plenty of time to deed the courthouse to the Public Building Commission, he added.

If the $1.6 million is to lost because the board votes to wait a few months it just means it would have been spent on items that weren\u2019t necessary in the first place, Brunk said.

\u201cIf the demolition funds are available now, then the Public Building Commission can hold onto those funds a few months longer as the full county board explores all its options,\u201d he said.

Board member Mia Mayberry, Rock Island, wants to know if the Public Building Commission will hold on to the $1.6 million while the board is looking at its options or if it will spend that money. If it spends it, on what will it be spent?

\u201cWe have to have some sort of funding mechanism,\u201d Mayberry said. \u201cWhether we raze it or save it, we have to have a funding mechanism moving forward.\u201d

She said the board needs all options on the table.

\u201cI want to know what our legal options are,\u201d Mayberry said. \u201cI need to know to make a diligent decision about what the law says about this whole process and what our options are legally.

\u201cAs the county board we still hold the deed to the courthouse,\u201d Mayberry said. \u201cUnless we give that deed to the Public Building Commission then we still control it.

Mayberry said the County Office Building has its problems, too.

Board members Drue Mielke of Coal Valley and Don Johnston of Moline have both said they believe the old courthouse is salvageable for office space, and that the County Office Building, built in 1898 as the headquarters of Modern Woodmen of America, could be sold to help pay for the renovations.

The renovated courthouse with its county offices, could then be connected to the new courthouse annex, Mielke said.

Other board members say the old building is ready for the wrecking ball.

\u201cIf there ever was an issue that was simply black and white this is it,\u201d said board member Scott Terry, Rock Island. \u201cWe have the way to take care of this albatross at no expense to the taxpayers and move forward.

\u201cThere is no plan for the courthouse. This has been going on for 70 years,\u201d Terry said, referring to 1958 when the County Board spent money taking down the domes that had been allowed to deteriorate beyond repair.

\u201cWe\u2019re sitting on a liability time bomb,\u201d Terry said. \u201cThe taxpayers already have had to pay out money because of the safety factors.

\u201cThe Sheriff (Gerry Bustos) has valid concerns about the proximity to the annex,\u201d he said.

\u201cThe County Office Building needs a lot of work but it is functionally and structurally sound,\u201d Terry added. \u201cThe county building doesn\u2019t have the same issues as the courthouse.

\u201cWe\u2019ve already done our homework,\u201d Terry said. \u201cLet\u2019s salvage the things of historical value and move forward. There\u2019s no good excuse not to make the decision. It\u2019s well overdue.\u201d

Board member Ron Oelke, Andalusia, agrees with Terry.

\u201cWe don\u2019t have any money to do anything with the courthouse and I don\u2019t think we\u2019re going to have the money anytime in the near future,\u201d Oelke said.

\u201cI know some preservationists would like to see it saved, but they never come up with any money,\u201d he said.

No developers have come forward, either, he said.

\u201cWe haven\u2019t had people knocking on our door to say, \u2018We\u2019ve got a great idea for the courthouse,\u2019\u201d Oelke said.

The old courthouse has served its purpose, he said.

\u201cJudge Braud says he has the money to do it, let\u2019s get it taken down,\u201d Oelke said. \u201cMaybe one day the county\u2019s financial picture will change but until then it will be a boarded-up empty building.

\"Let\u2019s just tear it down and get on with it,\u201d he said. \u201cAs the county\u2019s finances get better then we can get our other buildings taken care of.\u201d

Since 1962, Ben and Belen Terronez have called their house in Moline's Floreciente neighborhood \"home.\"

It is the place they raised their five children, and worked hard over the years to maintain. But at\u00a0100 years old, the house is not without its issues.\u00a0

At age 90 himself, Terronez admits some of the needed repairs were beyond his physical ability and, more importantly, his financial means. \"I've been retired so long, I finally ran out of money,\" said Terronez, who retired about 35 years ago from John Deere Parts Distribution Center in Milan after also working at the company's former foundry and Spreader Works \"which don't exist anymore.\"

But thanks to a new Critical Repair Loan Program in the Floreciente neighborhood, led by Habitat for Humanity Quad-Cities, the couple has a new roof, new deck and handicapped ramps to help Belen, also 90, get in and out.

The couple was one of three families to benefit from the loan program, launched in March 2016 by a $50,000 Priority Markets Grant to Habitat from Wells Fargo. Part of Habitat's larger Neighborhood Revitalization program in Floreciente, the loan program provides homeowners with access to a zero-percent interest loan for critical repair.

\"With limited incomes many families in the Floreciente neighborhood are not able to keep up with or afford basic home repairs,\" said Mary Chappell, director of the Neighborhood Revitalization program. She said the assistance can help seniors age in place and remain in their homes. \"If they can stay where they are, that's vital and important to the neighborhood.\"

But the grant has run out and Habitat is seeking new funding sources to continue the program, she said.

The critical repair program emerged after Habitat selected Floreciente for its pilot Neighborhood Revitalization program three years ago. Through the initiative, Habitat expanded its traditional home building program to partner with existing homeowners, neighbors and other stakeholders to improve the neighborhood.

\"When we first started and were trying to get a sense of the neighborhood, we toured a lot of homes,\" Chappell said. The program's initial focus was on exterior of homes, including roofs and access points, but \"then we got a look inside and decided we needed to do a critical repair program,\" she said.

Habitat has built several new houses in Floreciente including what\u00a0was the agency's 100th Quad-City home, which it dedicated in June. Through its involvement in the neighborhood, Habitat recognized the need to help stabilize the older housing stock.

\"We wanted to extend the life of the neighborhood properties, which goes to keeping the neighborhood strong,\" Chappell said.

Participants received a no-interest loan capped at $5,000, of which the homeowner must repay 25 percent with the grant covering the remainder of the costs.

As part of the program, and much like Habitat's traditional home builds, participants also are required to do sweat equity, she said. Recipients are required to invest eight hours of their own labor for each $1,000 invested. \"We believe in partners,\" Chappell said.

Ben Terronez, who became aware of the program as he saw Habitat helping other neighbors with repairs, said he painted the floor of the new deck and stained the two ramps Habitat built to help his wife, who no longer can climb steps.\u00a0

The repair program still has 16\u00a0applications under review, but needs a new funding source. \"We can't do everything,\" Chappell said. \"This program allows the residents to sustain themselves. It stabilizes the situation.\"\u00a0

Floreciente is the only Quad-City neighborhood to be the focus of Habitat's Neighborhood Revitalization program.

\"We're trying to put all our funds in this particular neighborhood,\" she said, adding that Habitat plans to remain there at least a few more years.

In addition to the major repairs, completed by licensed contractors, she said the revitalization program also has drawn on the help of other stakeholders, including a grant from Global Communities. Community volunteers have helped with smaller revitalization projects, such as new stair railings, painting and clean-up projects. A group of 200 Deere & Co. employees fanned out over the neighborhood in 2015 to kick off the program with a Rock the Block event with Habitat.

Tom Knight is in his 11th year as a high school and small college basketball official in the Quad-Cities, and it has happened to him a few times.

He will be walking to his car after refereeing a game and suddenly realize that he\u2019s not alone; that disgruntled fans from the game are giving an unwanted, uncomfortable escort.

\u201cThey\u2019ll be walking with you, telling you what a piece of (expletive) you are and \u2018You\u2019re a (expletive) homer,\u2019\u2019\u2019 Knight said. \u201cI\u2019ve had them say \u2018(Expletive) you, you\u2019re a piece of (expletive).\u2019 I\u2019ve had to turn around and say \u2018Please stop right there. If you step any more towards me, I\u2019ll feel threatened, and I\u2019ll need to call the police, so please stop right there.\u2019\u2019\u2019

Knight also has received text messages from people he doesn\u2019t know, expressing similar sentiments in similarly colorful language following games.

\u201cYou get home, and your spouse says \u2018Why do you do this for 80 bucks?'\" he said.

The truth is, fewer and fewer people are choosing to do it \u2014 not just in basketball and not just in the Quad-Cities.

An increasing shortage of high school athletic officials in all sports and in all parts of the country is creating very real concerns the trend could evolve into a major crisis for athletics at various levels.

It\u2019s not only because of the abuse that officials absorb. Time, work and family commitments, along with low pay, are leading fewer people into officiating and prompting many to leave it.

The exodus

Lewie Curtis, the director of officials for the Iowa High School Athletic Association, said he has 4,465 officials registered to work all sports for this school year. Seven years ago, there were 5,274. That\u2019s a 15 percent drop.

\u201cPretty alarming,\" Curtis said. \u201cEspecially if that trend continues, it\u2019s extremely alarming. Hopefully, that trend doesn\u2019t continue. That\u2019s the challenge.\"

Chuck Brittain, the coordinator of basketball officials for the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, said it\u2019s already a crisis in remote corners of the state. He said some of the less populated counties in Iowa have only one or two licensed officials in the entire county.

\u201cI think it\u2019s critical from the standpoint that, as we continue to get more and more of the older people retiring from officiating, we get less and less of the younger,\u2019\u2019 Brittain said. \u201cAnd when the old guard over the next five or 10 years goes away, will there be enough youngsters to take the spots? That\u2019s a massive concern.\u2019\u2019

Curtis describes the officiating pool as \u201can elderly population.\u2019\u2019 When he first joined the IHSAA nearly two years ago, he said, his research indicated that 40 percent of all officials were over the age of 50.

\u201cIf you look at the ages of the officials, you don\u2019t see a lot between 20 and 40,\" said Jon Clark, the president of the Quad-City Officials Association. \u201cYou do see a larger number above 50. So we\u2019ve been trying to target younger officials, former athletes, people in that age group that still have a love for the game who may have other responsibilities in life but still want to get back into it.\"

The problem, however, isn\u2019t just finding new officials. The bigger problem is keeping them.

In 2013, 782 new officials registered with the IHSAA, Curtis said. Some of them did multiple sports, so it actually amounted to 970 new spots. By 2016, only 328 of the 970 were still officiating. In other words, two-thirds quit within three years.

The national numbers are even more dire. According to the National Federation of State High School Associations, 80 percent of the people who begin officiating quit before their third year.

\u201cIt\u2019s always going to be a recruiting problem because you have to recruit them, but it\u2019s also a retention problem, and we have to figure out how can we retain them,\" Curtis said.

Clark said that once officials stay with it for three years, they seem to be in it for the long haul.

\u201cThose first few years are kind of the head-scratching years,\" he said. \u201cWill they stay or not? Will they find a passion for it and keep going?\"

Now a problem primarily at the high school level and below, there is a chance the shortage could affect higher levels. Rick Boyages, supervisor of basketball officials for the Big Ten, sees the potential for a trickle-up effect.

\u201cIt hasn\u2019t happened yet, but I think over the next decade, it could,\" he said.

Getting \u2018beat up\u2019

The lack of sportsmanship on display by fans, coaches and athletes isn\u2019t the only reason people get out of officiating, but it is a major factor.

\u201cIt\u2019s a huge problem,\u2019\u2019 said Mike Botts, who assigns officials for most sports in the Mississippi Athletic Conference and for some in the Western Big Six. \u201cI don\u2019t know if the right word is to say they get beat up because they don\u2019t get beat up physically, but they get verbally abused by fans and coaches so much that they don\u2019t think it\u2019s worth the effort to stay in it.\u2019\u2019

There have been very few instances of officials being physically harmed. In 2003, a basketball official was punched by a fan who came to the officials\u2019 locker room following a game at Davenport Central.

But those stories are rare. Mostly, the abuse is verbal.

\u201cYou see it enough that I just let it roll off my back,\u2019\u2019 said Roger Youngblut, of Davenport, who has been officiating for more than 20 years. \u201cYou better have some pretty thick skin if you\u2019re going to do this.\u2019\u2019

\u201cPeople do get very emotional at games,\u2019\u2019 Clark said. \u201cWe all love that about sports, the emotional part of it, but at some point some people \u2014 a very small number of people \u2014 take it too far and ruin it, not only for the officials at the game and the players, but probably even the people sitting next to them.\u2019\u2019

Brittain said officials only get what they allow.

\u201cAnd I think part of the problem is that we\u2019ve allowed too much,\" he said. \u201cIt doesn\u2019t have to be that way. We\u2019re kind of letting it get to that point \u2026 Some of it is just society. I don\u2019t know what you do about it.\u2019\u2019

\u2018Just not any fun\u2019

The general consensus is that verbal abuse from fans and parents is worse at the lower levels. And since most officials start out working elementary school and junior high games, they sometimes are being thrown into some of the most hostile atmospheres from the very beginning.

\u201cI\u2019ve gone to a couple Little League games where the parents and fans were much more vocal than what you hear at the college level,\u2019\u2019 said Ken Ferris, who has been working baseball and basketball games in the area for more than 40 years. \u201cAnd most of the guys working at that level are just young officials getting started.

\u201cIt\u2019s no wonder they decide to do something else. It\u2019s just not any fun.\u2019\u2019

Knight said he often wishes he could pull aside the parents he sees screaming at officials at junior high games and give them a dose of perspective.

\u201cThese are seventh-grade officials,\" he said. \u201cThey\u2019re learning, just like the kids are. There may be mistakes you\u2019ll see, but they\u2019re trained to learn, and they\u2019re going to progress. If they were really awesome, they\u2019d be doing the Iowa game tomorrow night at Wisconsin. But they\u2019re learning, just like the kids.\"

Ferris\u2019 philosophy always has been to mix in a little humor when coaches or fans complain.

\u201cMy motto is: I thrive on rejection,\" he said. \u201cThat\u2019s what officiating is about, being rejected all the time.\"

He knows that half the people always are going to disagree with what he calls. He\u2019s learned to disregard the complaints along with the few compliments he gets, mostly from coaches.

\u201cWhen you get a compliment, it\u2019s like cotton candy,\" Ferris said. \u201cIt looks good, but when you get it in your mouth, it just kind of dissolves into nothing. That pat on the back probably means they\u2019re working on you for a future call.\"

Commitments

As mentioned, abuse and lack of sportsmanship aren\u2019t the only reason for the shortage of officials.

When Curtis studied the losses among so many who signed up in 2013, he tried \u2014 with only minimal success \u2014 to get those who dropped out to tell him why.

A majority of them cited job responsibilities and family commitments, he said.

\u201cWhat I gleaned from that small sample size was there\u2019s going to be some things that happen with newly registered officials that we have zero control over,\" he said. \u201cI have no control over whether they get a new job or not or whether they get a promotion or whether they get more responsibility or whether they have kids. That\u2019s just going to be the way it is.\"

Since most officials have a daytime job from which they earn their primary income, it\u2019s almost impossible for them to get to a 4 p.m. junior high basketball game or a 10 a.m. freshman baseball game.

\u201cThose lower-level games, especially in baseball and softball, are earlier in the day,\" said Botts, of the Mississippi Athletic Conference. \u201cIf you have a career, you\u2019re not going to be able to make those. So you have to have guys who are either young guys just out of college or in college to do those.\"

As those young guys get older, though, they tend to take on more responsibilities in their jobs and/or begin to have families. Often, it no longer seems worthwhile to give up time for a relatively modest amount of money.

\u201cThe pay level for varsity and sub-varsity sports is pretty good, but a lot of guys feel they\u2019re not being paid enough,\" Botts said. \u201cThey don\u2019t see that part of this also is giving back to those sports and being involved.

\u201cIt\u2019s just a different generation coming on. I don\u2019t think they see the need to do that\u00a0\u2014 to give back to the sports or to be involved in the sports.\"

Joe Lopez, the vice president for basketball for the Quad-City Officials Association, said he also thinks some young officials don\u2019t want to pay their dues and work their way up to where they can make more money doing higher-level games.

Knight, for example, has progressed from junior high to high school to small college games, but it has taken a decade to get there.

\u201cFor some, they\u2019re just looking for the fast track to try to get up to the college level,\" Lopez said. \u201cThey don\u2019t have the patience to stay with it.\"

Better recruiting

No one has come up with one fool-proof way to keep the pool of officials from being drained.

But everyone has an opinion.

\u201cWe need to learn how to recruit better,\" said Tim Seward, another vice president of the QCOA. \u201cWe\u2019re really not doing good recruiting. That\u2019s part of it, and I think that just starts with talking to high school kids: \u2018Hey, if you\u2019re going to college, you should look into officiating your sport.'\"

Amy Ochkie, one of the few female officials in the area, said she is constantly talking to the students in the classes she teaches at Moline High School, urging them to officiate.

She said Augustana College makes an effort to get students involved in officiating intramural games with the hope that some of them will continue after college.

Boyages, of the Big Ten, said student involvement is being taken to another level at some schools, including Ohio State. Students there can take an actual class in officiating before getting involved in intramural games.

\u201cI think the student population is where we need to hit,\" Ochkie said. \u201cI know in volleyball we\u2019re seeing a huge break in the age of officials. We have some really old officials and then some young ones and not a lot in-between. And a lot of the young ones we\u2018re getting get out after a year or two.\"

Better training

Ochkie said there also is a need to better train officials.

In both Iowa and Illinois, becoming an official amounts to simply taking a test and going through an online clinic \u2014 without ever being taught what to do in a competitive environment.

\u201cThrough the years I\u2019ve worked with a lot of officials, and a lot of them don\u2019t hang around very long,\" Ochkie said. \u201cThey don\u2019t get a lot of training, and they get thrown out there to do things they\u2019re not ready for, yet.

\u201cThey should be pairing them with veteran officials, so they can work with somebody who really knows what they\u2019re doing. Too often, we stick two new officials together.\"

Both Brittain and Curtis said there is a need to set up mentoring programs in which older officials work with younger ones. Curtis said it\u2019s already being done in wrestling in Iowa and hopefully will be expanded into other sports.

Some officials have taken it upon themselves to mentor younger officials.

\u201cWhenever possible, I try to work with some newer guys, so I can try to help them learn,\" Ferris said. \u201cThe challenge always is managing the game without appearing to manage it.\"

Ochkie said the mentoring is critical to keeping young officials from becoming too frustrated.

\u201cIf I hadn\u2019t had good mentors in the beginning, I would have quit basketball right away,\" she said. \u201cThere is so much to learn about trying to get into the right position and where to go, what to do. It\u2019s a fast-moving game, and you don\u2019t have time to think. I had some really good guys I worked with who brought me along. If it hadn\u2019t been for them, I would have quit.\"

Hopeful future

Brittain is optimistic that high school athletics never will get to the point where the number or the quality of games will be compromised by a lack of qualified officials.

\u201cWhat happens going forward?\" he asked. \"I\u2019m kind of one of these guys who thinks we get to that point where it\u2019s that short, there will be people who will step up and take those places. But maybe there won\u2019t be. I don\u2019t know.

\u201cThere will be some people who will be more fearful. I\u2019m not fearful. I have hope that the people will step up.\"

He hopes there will be more people like Tom Knight, officiating in the Quad-Cities for his 11th year. A former Davenport Assumption athlete who served as the manager for the basketball team at Northern Iowa, Knight was coaxed into officiating by Rick Hartzell, then-athletic director at UNI and a Division I basketball official.

Knight is glad he did it and can\u2019t envision himself not officiating\u00a0\u2014 in spite of those nights when fans find fault with everything he does.

\u201cWhy do you stay with it? You love the game,\" he said. \u201cAt some point, you can\u2019t play it forever, so it\u2019s a nice way to stay around the game.\"

CEDAR RAPIDS \u2014 For many Eastern Iowans hoping to ring in the New Year with a bang, finding fireworks for the celebration will prove much more inconvenient than just five months ago over the Independence Day holiday.

Earlier this year, the Iowa Legislature made it legal for the first time in nearly 80 years to sell consumer fireworks, establishing periods around the Fourth of July and New Year\u2019s.

The law calls for sales in time for New Year\u2019s celebrations to begin Sunday.

But facing intense public backlash over noise over the Forth and lingering safety concerns, many cities around the state have clamped down \u2014 reducing the days fireworks legally can be set off, or banning displays completely; and relegating firework sales to industrial zones only.

Thanks in part to the new restrictions, as well as a requirement in the state law that sellers must operate out of permanent structures and not tents in the winter, local governments are reporting they\u2019ve seen little to no interest by vendors for this sales period, which ends Jan. 3.

An exception could be Boom Boom Billy\u2019s, a Shueyville fireworks vendor, which is in the process of getting approved to temporarily sell out of the South Expo Room at Hawkeye Downs in Cedar Rapids.

The city of Cedar Rapids\u2014 as well as some of the other largest ones in Linn and Johnson counties \u2014 has yet to officially permit any fireworks sellers.

\u201cWe\u2019re not really aware of what to expect,\u201d said Paul Myers, co-owner of Boom Boom Billy\u2019s. \u201cIf we have sales that\u2019d be great. If we don\u2019t, at least we tried.\u201d

In announcing it would be selling out of its store near a Waterloo mall, Crossroads Fireworks \u2014 which had a big footprint in Iowa over the summer \u2014 predicted most other sellers would be sitting this one out.

\u201cWe hear that in Iowa there will only be a twentieth of the number of fireworks retailers for December that there were in the summer,\u201d said a statement from Matt Reisetter, one of the store\u2019s owners.

Setting the stage

Before then-Gov. Terry Branstad signed the fireworks bill into law in May, Iowa\u2019s regulations allowing only novelty fireworks like sparklers and snakes were among the strictest in the country. The first sales period, between June 1 and July 8, in Iowa arrived with a boom thanks to hundreds of retailers who received state licenses to sell out of stores and tents.

\u201cI knew exactly what was going to happen, is there was going to be a lot of out-of-state companies come in and try to basically profiteer on Iowans,\u201d Myers said. \u201cWhereas my stands, well, we employed local people. We gave back to the community in that regard ...\u201d

The new law appears to prohibit local entities from banning the sale of fireworks, but allows stricter rules on their use within cities or unincorporated areas.

\u201cEvery city\u2019s been a little bit different depending on what the city council has been interested in. And then also just making sure we\u2019re in line with the cities but then also the state rules,\u201d said Jeremiah Terhark, owner of Iowa Fireworks Co. The Urbandale-based company had temporary locations all over the state, including Cedar Rapids, during the summer but doesn\u2019t plan to sell this winter.

To legally sell fireworks, a vendor has to receive a license from the state and approval from the local government where it would sell.

Because state-issued licenses last for about a year, any vendor that received one for the first sales period and is located in a permanent building could \u2014 in the state\u2019s eyes \u2014 sell again during the New Year\u2019s period. Those vendors number upward of 300 in Iowa. But the vendors also must meet local regulations, which in several Corridor cities sharply limits the possibilities.

Terhark, who partnered with his brother, Zack, to start the company, said its primary focus was on selling from temporary structures over the summer, but it would evaluate that strategy going foreword.

\u201cI do think that Iowa is such a specific and small sales period that the retail structures might be a little bit more challenging to have for the entire year..,\u201d Terhark said.

Currently, the Iowa State Fire Marshal\u2019s Office is in the process of adopting permanent rules to regulate fireworks retailers, said State Fire Marshal Dan Wood. The process now falls under emergency rules the office put together in the short period between when the law was signed and when it took effect.

Wood said the state\u2019s application process includes submitting site plans, proof of insurance and a safety check list. After that, an inspection of the site is performed before a retailer receives its license.

Wood said he encouraged retailers to get the local approval first.

\u201cYou can go through our whole process. Make it through, pay your fee and then the city can say, \u2018Sorry, you can\u2019t be at that particular spot,\u2019\u201d Wood said.

Frowning on fireworks

Some local entities like Iowa City had immediate negative reactions to the fireworks law \u2014 continuing to ban the use despite being required to adjust codes and ordinances to comply with sales.

Johnson County perhaps went the farthest, instituting a 90-day moratorium on fireworks sales while it could develop a policy. At the time, the senator who shepherded the fireworks bill questioned whether the county had legal authority to do so.

Des Moines took another angle \u2014 deciding to limit sales of fireworks to industrial zones, which effectively would prevent big-box retailers from selling out of their stores. Last June, a judge ruled in favor of Des Moines\u2019s right to impose the restriction after American Promotional Events sought an injunction, the Des Moines Register reported.

Since then, cities like Cedar Rapids and Iowa City have followed suit, passing ordinances limiting fireworks sales to industrial zones only.

\u201cIt\u2019s just unusual that the regulations they\u2019re trying to pass seem to be somewhat of an affront to what the state intentions were, but they\u2019re well within their power to do it,\u201d Myers said. \u201cThere\u2019s other things out there that are legal but aren\u2019t necessarily in society\u2019s best interest like alcohol or guns or things like that, but those sure seem to be legal.\u201d

Most recently, the Cedar Rapids City Council voted last week to ban the use of fireworks in the city limits, putting the city in line with Iowa City, Coralville and North Liberty, among several others.

\u201cWe do think that will impact sales next year, but at the same time I can understand the cities\u2019 perspective because they want to keep people safe and there some people that didn\u2019t follow the rules that were in place,\u201d Terhark said.

Statewide slowdown

The New Year\u2019s Eve sky in Iowa may not be very bright this year.

Cities across the state report they haven\u2019t seen much interest from retailers yet for this sales period. The could be just as much because of the cold weather as it is the stricter rules.

As of the end of last week, Iowa City, Coralville, North Liberty and Marion had yet to approve any retailers. Both Johnson and Linn counties have not had any interest, either.

Elsewhere, Davenport and Ames are also among those that report a lack of interest.

\u201cIt\u2019s kind of cold outside to be using fireworks, so we\u2019re trying to see if it\u2019s a Fourth of July thing,\u201d Terhark said. \u201cWe\u2019re resting up for next summer. I\u2019ll be curious to see what people do for New Year\u2019s.\u201d

IOWA CITY \u2014 A breakthrough season as a first-year starting cornerback at Iowa has Josh Jackson weighing his options.

The Hawkeyes\u2019 junior, who has intercepted as many passes as any player in college football this season, is working to decide whether to use his final year of eligibility or opt for an early exit for the next level.

Jackson is on schedule to earn his undergraduate degree from Iowa in May, and the Big Ten\u2019s defensive back of the year admits he has gone back and forth with what might be best for him.

\"I still haven\u2019t made a final decision, but I have thought about going and I have thought about coming back,\" Jackson said. \"It\u2019s not an easy decision.\"

There may also not be a right or wrong answer.

One of three finalists for the Jim Thorpe Award as the nation\u2019s top defensive back, Jackson understands there are no guarantees on either side of the equation.

Emerging last spring as the replacement for 2015 Jim Thorpe Award winner Desmond King at left cornerback, Jackson entered his junior season with 18 career tackles and six pass breakups on his resume.

This season, Jackson is tied with Lukas Denis of Iowa Pinstripe Bowl opponent Boston College and Florida Atlantic's Jalen Young for the nation\u2019s interception lead with seven. He leads the nation with 25 passes defended and is tied for second in the nation in pass breakups.

It\u2019s all the result of his blend of athleticism, technical ability and understanding and great anticipatory skill.

He caught the eye of draft analysts when he intercepted three passes in Iowa\u2019s win over Ohio State on Nov. 4.

When he intercepted two passes and returned both for touchdowns that accounted for the Hawkeyes\u2019 only scores the following week in a game at Wisconsin, Jackson was recognized as one of the elite defenders in the country.

His work in games against those two top-10 teams put him on the radar of NFL scouts and draft analysts, and Jackson has played his way onto the list of players being referenced as potential first-round picks.

Jackson has discussed the situation with coach Kirk Ferentz and defensive coordinator Phil Parker.

They are working to put trustworthy information in Jackson\u2019s hands.

\"We probably have a couple guys that have some thinking to do, but the biggest thing is to just get them good, factual information so they know what they are deciding instead of speculating,\" Ferentz said, also referencing the probability of junior center James Daniels trying to get a gauge on where he stands in the minds of NFL teams.

Iowa coaches have also told Jackson to enjoy the moment.

\"They told me to enjoy the process, stay focused on what matters and told me not to get distracted,\" Jackson said. \"They\u2019re there for me, and they have been helping me out, just telling me if I need anything to just talk to them.\"

Jackson\u2019s mother, Vanessa, has been dealing with any prospective agents who are interested in speaking with Jackson.

He said she has been supportive of him researching where things are at right now.

\"I haven\u2019t really talked with anybody,\" he said.

Jackson, who returned to the practice field with the Hawkeyes this weekend after attending the College Football Awards program in Atlanta on Thursday, said he doesn\u2019t know at this point how it all will play out.

He calls the situation \"fluid\" and said it remains up in the air.

Ferentz said Jackson is the one who will have to make the decision ultimately.

\"Any time you have a really good underclassman, it\u2019s a possibility,\" Ferentz said. \"The last few years, we\u2019ve had two guys that have opted to stay with us. Desmond (King) and Brandon (Scherff), those guys were playing great.\"

Both returned to Iowa for their senior seasons. King ended up as a fifth-round pick last year, while Scherff benefited from a strong senior season and was chosen in the draft\u2019s first round in 2015.

Ferentz said his message to them wasn\u2019t any different than what he is currently telling Jackson.

\"You\u2019ve already won the game in effect; you\u2019re a really good player,\" Ferentz said. \"When you\u2019re 26, you\u2019re going to be playing in the NFL, which Desmond is going to be doing, same with Brandon. It\u2019s really nice in life when you get to do what you want to do.\"

But ultimately, the decision comes down to the player.

\"It\u2019s not my job to decide what\u2019s best because how the heck would I know,\" Ferentz said. \"I think that ultimately, that has got to be up to the individual, and we don\u2019t want anybody staying here if they are not (all in with) both feet on the ground.\"

Jackson said he is no rush to reach a decision. He does face a Jan. 15 deadline to declare for early entry into the NFL draft.

\"At some point, I\u2019ll have to make a decision, but right now it is just something I\u2019m thinking about,\" Jackson said. \"I need to think it through.\"

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Thanks to six bonus-point victories, the Iowa wrestling team beat Maryland 40-6 Sunday at the Xfinity Center, their 24th straight Big Ten road win.

The Hawkeyes got pins from Brandon Sorenson at 149 pounds and Alex Marinelli at 165. It's the first collegiate pin for Marinelli in the second bout of his freshman career.

Iowa also got technical falls from Michael Kemerer at 157, Cash Wilcke\u00a0 at 197 and North Scott grad Mitch Bowman\u00a0 at 184, who won his bout over Spencer Woods 20-5.

Iowa (7-0, 3-0 Big Ten) held a 32-2 advantage in takedowns and led 40-0 before forfeiting at heavyweight, Maryland's only points of the dual.

Head coach Tom Brands said the decision to forfeit was his and not any issue with heavyweight Sam Stoll.

\"You don't take anything for granted. You have to go out and wrestle,\" Brands said. \"Forfeiting heavyweight was my call. I'm sure it's not popular with the fans, but it's one of those things where you do the right thing. It's early December. There is no issue with Stoll.\"

Awards have never motivated Josey Jewell.

The pursuit of perfection and the workmanlike approach it takes to perform at a high level and compete the right way on and off the field drive the Iowa linebacker.

Sunday night, Jewell\u2019s work was recognized.

The Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation named the Hawkeye senior from Decorah, Iowa as the recipient of the 2017 Lott IMPACT Trophy.

Jewell was presented the award which honors college football\u2019s defensive best in character and performance by former NFL player Ronnie Lott during a banquet at Newport Beach, California.

The sponsoring organization defines IMPACT as integrity, maturity, performance, academics, community and tenacity.

Jewell was selected from a field of finalists which included Minkah Fitzpatrick of Alabama, Micah Kiser of Virginia and Harrison Phillips of Stanford.

In accepting the award during a ceremony televised by CBS Sports Network, Jewell indicated he was caught by surprise by his selection.

\"Wow, I didn't think this would be happening here,'' Jewell said. \"It's an honor to be up here with these amazing players, not just as great players, but amazing with people in their communities.''

He went on to thank his parents, Bobby and Paula Jewell, and the coaches who have guided him throughout his career.

Jewell is the third straight Big Ten player to receive the honor, following Carl Nassib of Penn State in 2015 and Jabrill Peppers of Michigan a year ago.

His selection includes a donation of $25,000 to Iowa\u2019s general scholarship fund from the Pacific Club.

The Big Ten\u2019s linebacker of the year was previously honored as a first-team all-American by the Walter Camp Football Foundation and as the recipient of the Jack Lambert Award, presented to college football\u2019s top linebacker by the Touchdown Club of Columbus.

Jewell was also one of finalists for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, a semifinalist for the Bednarik and Butkus awards and is one of 10 finalists for the Senior CLASS Award.

Despite sitting out one of Iowa\u2019s 12 games this season because of an injury, Jewell currently leads the Big Ten and ranks third nationally with 125 tackles and an average of 11.4 tackles per game.

He has recorded 426 career tackles, fifth in Hawkeye history and joins Larry Station and Abdul Hodge as the third Iowa player ever to have three seasons with at least 115 tackles.

Jewell was the second Hawkeye to be a finalist for the award. Linebacker James Morris was among the finalists for the same honor in 2013.

Iowa free safety Brandon Snyder was arrested by Iowa City police early Sunday morning, charged with drunken driving following a traffic stop near Kinnick Stadium.

According to Iowa City police reports, an off-duty dispatcher called police around 3:04 a.m. to report a vehicle being driven recklessly. An officer located Snyder driving a 2017 Dodge Challenger near the intersection of Melrose Avenue and Hawkins Drive.

The vehicle was pulled over and reports indicate that Snyder displayed multiple signs of intoxication, including impaired speech and an odor of alcohol.

The report indicates that Snyder, 22, admitted to drinking, was wearing multiple bar wristbands and showed what was described as \u201cmeasurable impairment\u2019\u2019 on field sobriety tests.

A breath test measured Snyder\u2019s blood alcohol content at .163, more than twice the legal limit to operate a motor vehicle under Iowa statute.

The junior who played in one game this season for the Hawkeyes and has undergone surgery twice this year to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left leg was charged with operating while intoxicated.

Coach Kirk Ferentz issued a statement Sunday indicating that he was aware of the incident.

\u201cWhile we are currently gathering additional facts, we are very disappointed to learn of Brandon\u2019s involvement,\u2019\u2019 Ferentz said. \u201cBrandon is subject to the rules and regulations of the UI Student-Athlete Code of Conduct, and the rules and regulations of our football program.\u2019\u2019

A member of the Iowa football team\u2019s leadership group for the 2017 season, Snyder arrived at Iowa as a walk-on and earned a scholarship, recording 85 tackles and three interceptions in 2016 as a first-year starter in the Hawkeye secondary.

He initially tore the ligament in his left leg early in spring practices, but returned to competition earlier than expected for an Oct. 7 game against Illinois when he recorded three tackles, returned an interception 89 yards for a touchdown and broke up two additional passes.

Snyder also re-injured his knee in the game, requiring an additional surgery. Ferentz indicated in November that Snyder is not expected to return to the field for Iowa until June.

Two years ago, Jimmy Morrissey was approached about changing jersey numbers.

The St. Ambrose senior linebacker and Pleasant Valley graduate wore the No. 96 as a sophomore with the Fighting Bees, but the coaching staff asked him if he'd like to wear 44 for his final two seasons, the number worn by Bob Jurevitz, and previously held by Jurevitz' son, Keaton.

Bob Jurevitz was a former All-American running back who still holds program records for most points scored in a career and most touchdowns scored in a career and is second on the school's all-time rushing list 31 years after his career ended in 1985. He passed away in 2011 after a battle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

\"It's been special. It means a lot to me,\" Morrissey said of playing the last two seasons as No. 44. \"That number, just from his legacy, it's a lot more than just a number. It's a persona of hard work, total effort, giving your best and being an outstanding person. Every time I wore it, I tried to play as hard as I could, leave it all out on the field like Bob would.\"

Saturday, Morrissey received the Bob Jurevitz Award, given annually to the St. Ambrose football player who\u00a0exemplifies the characteristics of leadership, team-first play and toughness that Jurevitz showed on the football field and in his life.\u00a0

\"Hearing the stories of him playing from my dad (former Pleasant Valley head football coach Ed Morrissey) and other coaches, it means a lot,\" Morrissey said. \"Honestly, it's probably the greatest award I've ever received.\"

Each year, head coach Mike Magistrelli nominates players that he thinks are deserving of the award and sends them to the Jurevitz family to be chosen. Morrissey finished the year with 26 tackles, 2.5 for loss but missed three games with an elbow injury.

It was how Morrissey conducted himself during the time away from the field that was one of the factors that contributed into his nomination.

\"When you think about the Bob Jurevitz award, you typically think about someone that is very well respected within the program, very dedicated and a hard worker,\" Magistrelli said. \"Sometimes it's natural when you get hurt to take step back and be out of sight, out of mind. Jimmy was the exact opposite, he was always around and always trying to give what advice he could and help out the other players.

\"He showed his true colors there, how dedicated he is and how important it is to him see us do well that he was doing anything he could to try and help his teammates.\"

For Morrissey, who heard stories of Jurevitz growing up and played with Keaton for two years, keeping the award local this year is special. He plans to go into coaching after he graduates, following in the family footsteps as one brother Mike, is the head coach at Moline High School and the other is an assistant at Kansas Wesleyan University.

\"There's a lot of great players in this community,\" Morrissey said. \"I think it says a lot about our community as a whole, I think it speaks a lot to the character of everyone here.\"

IOWA CITY \u2014 This is the Luka Garza that Iowa basketball fans thought they might see on a pretty regular basis this season.

This also was the sort of offensive execution and 3-point shooting they expected. And the kind of outcome they hope to see.

Garza had the best game of his relatively brief college career, collecting career highs of 23 points and 13 rebounds, and Iowa vented a few weeks of frustration on a travel-weary Southern University team in rolling to a 91-60 victory on Sunday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

It was the Hawkeyes\u2019 first victory in 18 days and put a happy punctuation mark on a stretch in which they lost four straight games and six of the past seven.

\u201cIt was definitely satisfying,\u2019\u2019 said Garza, who was removed from the lineup for Thursday\u2019s game at Iowa State after starting the first nine games of the season. \u201cAnybody, when you\u2019re struggling, to have a game like this is really good for your confidence.\u2019\u2019

The 6-foot-11 center only played 19 minutes Sunday but he made the most of it, relentlessly crashing the offensive boards and even draining the first 3-point field goal of his career.

\u201cI\u2019ve seen him play like that a lot but this year, yes, that\u2019s clearly his best game,\u2019\u2019 Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said. \u201cHe\u2019s just a dominant force. A lot of guys you take them out of the starting lineup, they don\u2019t react real well. He just went to work and essentially dominated the game.\u2019\u2019

Gazra said his demotion from the starting lineup only made him work harder. He said he plans to play with the same energy level no matter what role he is asked to fill.

\u201cI think I got on the glass more today than I have been,\u2019\u2019 he added. \u201cI went to the offensive glass more and played with more confidence. My jump shot in particular. I wasn\u2019t turning down open looks \u2026 I was just playing more like myself.\u2019\u2019

Garza\u2019s play wasn\u2019t the only welcome sign for the Hawkeyes. After turning the ball over 18 times in each of the past three games, they handed it over just seven times, only once in the second half.

\u201cYou look down and see seven turns,\u2019\u2019 McCaffery said, perusing his stat sheet. \u201cThat\u2019s a number that hasn\u2019t been there for awhile.\u2019\u2019

They also reached a season high with 13 3-pointers, including four by Isaiah Moss and three by Maishe Dailey.

Dailey, who has earned more playing time in the past few weeks, was another highlight. The sophomore was a major force in snapping the Hawkeyes out a sluggish start in which Southern opened an early 23-17 lead. He came in and knocked down back-to-back 3-pointers to jump-start the Hawkeyes.

\u201cHe\u2019s just gaining confidence,\u2019\u2019 McCaffery said of Dailey. \u201cHe has that ability \u2026 He is versatile, he can stick his nose on the glass, handle the ball. He\u2019s got a great stroke and he\u2019s not afraid to put it up. He\u2019s always looking for it. He was clearly a difference in the game.\u2019\u2019

By halftime, the Hawkeyes led by 10 (41-31) and they really turned it on in the second half against a Southern team (2-8) that had played a game against Central Florida in Orlando only 27 hours earlier.

McCaffery said he thought his team\u2019s defense improved after it began to widen the lead.

\u201cI think we just had to execute the game plan,\u2019\u2019 Garza said. \u201cOur coaches have done such a great job of preparing us for games and I don\u2019t think we executed any of the game plans yet. So coming out here and doing that was a big focus for us. I think we did a really good job of that.\u2019\u2019

The big lead allowed McCaffery to give some extra playing time to his son, Connor, who made his college debut after missing 10 games with an ankle injury and mononucleosis.

Connor played 17 minutes, handed out four assists and scored his first career points on a 3-pointer with 3 minutes, 19 seconds remaining in the game.

\u201cI thought I\u2019d get a few minutes here and there,\u2019\u2019 Connor said. \u201cI didn\u2019t expect to play that much in the second half.\u2019\u2019

He admitted he still is nowhere near 100 percent and isn\u2019t entirely sure how long it will take him to be fully recovered.

\u201cHe played the way we thought he could play but he still has a long way to go,\u2019\u2019 Fran McCaffery said. \u201cHe was really gassed.\u2019\u2019

\u201cIt is a city-wide event,\u201d\u00a0said Police Sgt. Jeff Nelson.

Performers included the Family Museum Dance Company, the Quad-City Ukulele Club, magician David Casas, Bettendorf High School Chamber Choir, the Swinney Family Band and \u2019Tis the Season Carolers.

Among the guests in the appreciative audience were Martha Reynolds and Doris Brinning-Ross, both of Bettendorf.

\u201cI think it\u2019s a wonderful thing for the seniors,\u201d said Reynolds, who attends regularly. \u201cIt\u2019s an afternoon out \u2013 very enjoyable for the seniors. I think the City of Bettendorf is wonderful to do this.\u201d

Not only is the entertainment enjoyable, but also \u201cYou can learn about the things Bettendorf has to offer,\u201d Brinning-Ross said.

Feeding birds allows us to observe birds up-close and personal, and during cold winter months, observing bird activity right outside our windows is especially heartening.

With winter,\u00a0many birds\u00a0change their eating habits, with some that relied on insects now switching to a diet of berries and seeds. Bird behavior changes this time of year, too, and to improve their chances of surviving the winter, many species now join in flocks. A flock of birds allows more eyes to watch for predators and also to look for food sources.

Extreme cold temperatures, along with short days and long nights, make finding high calorie food a necessity for winter survival. This is especially true for many small birds, since they have a high metabolic rate.

While most birds supply about 80 percent of their own food needs away from bird feeders (even when bird feeders are full), providing protein-rich, high- calorie foods from feeders can help birds survive winter blizzards and help birds be in top condition when spring breeding season arrives.

Variety of feeders in variety of locations

Different bird species prefer different types of foods, and they typically also prefer different types of feeders. To increase the diversity of bird species, providing a variety of feeder types in a variety of locations (around your home) is advised.

An ideal feeder is sturdy and tight so that it stays in place and feed remains dry. It should be easy to assemble and clean. The three main feeder types are hopper or house feeders, tube feeders, and tray or platform feeders.

Feeders should be located in sheltered places, out of the north wind, while still in the open to allow birds to watch for danger. Placing feeders closer to the house can be effective and allows easy viewing from indoors.

Place feeders where they have a sunny exposure, when possible. There should be trees and shrubs nearby to provide both shelter and escape routes from predators. Conifers are ideal for this.

For ground-feeding birds, providing a feeding site near cover with an open view of the surroundings works best. All feeders that are mounted on or attached to poles should include predator guards, so squirrels, raccoons, and cats cannot access them. The same goes for hanging feeders, only this time the predator guard should be located above the feeder. These guards, when located properly, also protect the hanging feeder from rain and snow.

Black oil sunflower seed

If you offer only one food item to birds, it should be black oil sunflower seed. This seed has a high calorie/ounce ratio because of its high fat and protein content, plus it has a relatively thin shell that makes it easier for small birds to access the sunflower heart.

This seed is readily consumed by cardinals, woodpeckers, blue jays, finches, chickadees, titmice and nuthatches. It usually is fed in hopper and platform feeders. While ground-feeding birds, such as juncos and several native sparrows, prefer white millet, they will readily eat sunflower seeds, too.

\u2022 Nyger seed. While finches do eat sunflower seeds, they prefer nyger seed. This seed is best fed from tube feeders. It is often fed as a \u201cfinch mix,\u201d which is a combination of nyger and small bits of sunflower hearts. When fed in a long tube feeder, it is not unusual to have a couple dozen goldfinches, house finches and siskins visiting the feeder at once. This can be a particularly cheerful sight on a cold wintry day!

\u2022 Peanuts. Peanuts are another favored food and can be mixed with sunflower seed or fed separately. With high levels of both fat and protein, peanuts are especially a favorite of woodpeckers, nuthatches, titmice, and Carolina wrens.

\u2022 Suet. Suet is\u00a0a cold-weather bird attractant that is eaten by most winter birds. It can be fed from a variety of feeders, ranging from a suet cage to a wooden suet feeder, which is designed so that birds feed from it while hanging upside down beneath it.

\u2022 Water. Also don\u2019t forget to supply water, because birds need water year around. Bird waterers with a heater element are essential, and when all other water sources are frozen solid, birds will be flocking to your yard for the water that you offer them.

Clean your feeders

Also, it is very important to clean your feeders often \u2013 and clean beneath them, too. During winter warm-up periods it is recommended that a mild bleach solution be used to disinfect feeders. This will help prevent diseases associated with feeders, like Salmonellosis and Aspergillosus.

For veterinarians, giving your dog a bone is almost the equivalent of running with scissors \u2014 not\u00a0safe.

So when the Food and Drug Administration takes the time to issue a warning about \u201ctreat bones,\u201d most in our profession are split between \u201cThanks for helping us get the message out\u201d and \u201c What took you so long?\u201d

In fairness, many consumers have thought that a \u201csmokey knuckle bone \u201d or \u201cseasoned ham bone\u201d might impart not only additional flavor, but safety as well.

The truth is that these \u201ctreats\u201d have led to the death and illness of many dogs \u2013 perhaps more than reported as veterinarians are not required to submit to the FDA any record of the dogs injured by these bones.

While not specifically mentioned by the FDA, raw bones can also cause serious issues with splintering and carry the additional risk of potentially transmitting salmonella and other infectious agents.

Deer and other game animal antlers pose the same risks as treat or raw bones \u2013blockages to the intestinal tract, cuts in the mouth, diarrhea and the potential to fracture the crowns of teeth.

To keep your pet safe, discuss appropriate treats and chews for your pet with your veterinarian. For some pets, rawhide can be an alternative. It is\u00a0even safer if it is thin and manufactured in the United States, but it will still carry a choking risk. Even rubber or latex toys can be torn apart by strong chewers and swallowed.

The bottom line is that toys and treats always carry some risk and owner supervision should be a part of the chewing experience for dogs.

President of Electronic Security, Per Mar Security Services

How did you choose your career path? I am fortunate to be a part of a family business. I expected to go in to the business since I was around 10 years old.

How do you maintain a work/life balance? I have found that as my schedule becomes fuller, there are always things that can be cut out that are wasteful (either at work or personally). I\u2019m also very fortunate that we have strong leaders who can handle their areas of the company pretty independently \u2014 we are all working toward shared goals, but we are able to put a lot of trust in our branch managers to make good decisions.

What do you look for in a new hire; what questions do you ask in the interview to find the right fit? The most important thing is that we are hiring somebody who will join us with a growth mindset, where they will own and learn from their mistakes instead of running from them or seeing themselves as limited in potential. This leads to their personal success, but also brings on the type of people that others enjoy working with.

I also like to understand how people will explain past failures or mistakes they have made, and whether they truly mentally own them, and what the candidate feels they have learned.

Was there ever a time in your life when you hit an obstacle and had to re-evaluate or rebuild? I think that I have definitely had to evolve over the course of my career. After college, I worked as an analyst at Capital One. I spent all of my time working with numbers, and the problems mostly had objective right or wrong answers. The job was a very natural fit to my skill set. In my various roles as a manager at Per Mar, I have come to realize how important it is to truly understand and relate to people in order to be effective as a leader, and also that we will not always have enough information to make a decision. It has been very beneficial for me to have an analytical skill set, but someone like my dad who has 45 years of experience can make effective decisions without a ton of data. I\u2019m trying to learn to balance that, as our big advantage as a privately held company is our ability to decide quickly to stay ahead of larger competitors.

What\u2019s the best thing about doing business in the Quad-Cities? We are very fortunate to be headquartered in a city with a labor market like the Quad-Cities. The work ethic and values of this area fit well with what we are seeking.

Do you have any advice for people just starting out in their career? If you come across a problem, be the kind of person who tries to fix it instead of the kind of person that complains about it.

The debate seems to be over.

There no longer seems to be any question that the Chicago Bears will fire John Fox as their head coach. The only question seems to be when it will happen. The Bears could either fire Fox now with three or four weeks remaining in the season or wait until the season is over before cutting him loose.

There really isn\u2019t much sense in doing it now unless the Bears wanted to give defensive coordinator Vic Fangio a three-week trial to see what he can do as a head coach. And according to some reports, Fangio has no desire to be a head coach.

Just to keep the team\u2019s situation from becoming even more chaotic than it already is, they might as well let Fox keep the job until after the Dec. 31 season finale with Minnesota.

With last Sunday\u2019s loss to the equally inept 49ers, Fox now has the worst winning percentage (.273) of any head coach in Bears history. Worse than Marc Trestman. Worse than Abe Gibron. Worse than Jim Dooley, who went 1-13 one year.

Fox has won 12 games in three years after the much reviled Trestman won 13 in two years.

Admittedly, he hasn\u2019t been given a lot to work with in terms of offensive talent, but it\u2019s time to go.

***

We saw some Las Vegas odds a few weeks ago on which NFL head coaches were most likely to be fired, and Fox was only fifth on the list, behind Chuck Pagano of the Colts, Ben McAdoo of the Giants, Hue Jackson of the Browns and Dirk Koetter of the Buccaneers.

McAdoo already has been dismissed. We\u2019re guessing Fox\u2019s odds have risen decidedly since then.

***

Former Geneseo football player Drew Himmelman was named to the Missouri Valley Football Conference all-newcomer team as a redshirt freshman.

You may recall Himmelman as a wide receiver and tight end in high school. In fact, you probably remember him better as a basketball player. He is now a 6-foot-10, 300-pound offensive tackle for Illinois State.

There haven\u2019t been many football players ever at any level who were that tall. Richard Sligh, who was 7 feet tall, played eight games at defensive tackle for the Oakland Raiders in 1967. And Morris Stroud was a 6-10 tight end for the Chiefs in the early 1970s.

Stroud was so tall that Kansas City occasionally had him stand in front of the goalposts to try and jump up to block low, line-drive field goal attempts, a tactic that has since been made illegal.

If Himmelman should ever make it to the NFL, he apparently would be the tallest offensive lineman in the history of the league.

***

It was nice to see that Baker Mayfield didn\u2019t grab his crotch and gesture at the other candidates when he won the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night.

He showed much more dignity and sportsmanship than he occasionally did on the playing field during the season.

***

It was interesting to hear Ohio State supporters insisting that their football team should have been selected for the college football playoff. One of their chief arguments was that the Buckeyes defeated two teams that were ranked in the top five in the country at the time they played them.

So what? Iowa State did the same thing. And one of the teams the Cyclones defeated (Oklahoma) had previously beaten Ohio State. ISU also came a little closer to beating Iowa than the Buckeyes did.

***

This sort of feels like karma. Of the 11 college football programs that have moved from one power-5 conference to another in the past half dozen years, seven of them \u2014 Maryland, Rutgers, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Colorado and Utah \u2014 finished .500 or worse this season.

The only exceptions were Missouri, West Virginia and Texas A&M, all of whom went 7-5, and Louisville, which was 8-4.

***

Is there a worse NFL TV analyst than James Lofton? During the broadcast of the Bears-49ers game last Sunday, he was getting players mixed up, calling Foster Fuller and Fuller Foster.

And in his pregame intro, he said the Chicago's front four does a good job shielding its linebackers. Hopefully, he noticed during the game that the Bears play a 3-4 defense. They don\u2019t have a front four.

I suppose that\u2019s why they have Lofton working a game between teams that were 1-10 and 3-8.

The Quad-City Mallards were spotted a quick lead Saturday night against Fort Wayne.

They couldn't make it hold up.

Despite goaltender C.J. Motte being credited with a goal and making 34 saves, the Mallards fell 5-3 to the Fort Wayne Komets, giving up three goals in the third period at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.

Former Mallard Mason Baptista scored the game-winner on a shorthanded breakaway at the 13-minute, 22-second mark of the third period, capping a run in stats had the Komets outshooting the Mallards 12-0.

\"They made a good read, and we tried getting the puck up top,\" head coach Phil Axtell said. \"They picked it off and beat our top guy there, and that's what happened.\"

The Komets outshot the Mallards 39-16 in the game.

\"Can't put 60 minutes together,\" Axtell said. \"Instead of shooting, we try going around the net and make a fancy play. We just need to put the puck in the net.\"

The Mallards got on the board early thanks to a fortunate turn of events. With the Komets playing out a delayed penalty, a centering pass from Jamie Schaafsma missed his target. The puck bounced off the side boards and into the Fort Wayne net to give the Mallards the 1-0 lead just 92 seconds into the game.

Motte was the last Mallard to touch the puck and was credited with the goal, the first of his career. Motte is the first goaltender in Mallards history to be credited with a goal and the 13th in ECHL history.

Josh MacDonald scored a more conventional goal at 11:33, burying a 3-on-1 opportunity past Michael Houser. Chris Francis notched an assist on the play and now has a goal and an assist in his first two games of the season after missing the first 19 games with a herniated disk.

Fort Wayne countered in the latter half of the period.

Former Mallard Logan Nelson scored his first goal of the season at 13:43, and then Ryan Culkin capitalized on a 5-on-3 power play opportunity with a goal at 18:38 to tie the game.

\"It was early, but we battled,\" Axtell said. \"It's very disappointing (we couldn't hold the lead).\"

Jamie Tardif put the Mallards back on top with a power play goal at 8:54 in the second period as the Mallards went into the third period with a 3-2 lead.

But from then on it was all Fort Wayne, which tied the game at 12:13 on a goal from Artur Tyanulin. Baptista's goal gave the Komets the lead, and Schaafsma scored a shorthanded empty net goal to ice the game.

Faced with plenty of adversity in a tough road game, the Augustana men's basketball team showed plenty of moxie in logging a key early-season CCIW victory.

With their bigs in foul trouble, the Vikings turned to the guards to do much of the work in a 70-61 victory over hosting Carthage at Tarble Arena. Chrishawn Orange (16), Dylan Sortillo (13) and Nolan Ebel (12) led the Vikings. Reserve A.J. Dollmeyer added 10 off the bench as fellow bigs battled foul trouble all game.

\"Our depth really came through and we showed good balance,\" said Augie coach Grey Giovanine.

The win moves the nationally fourth-ranked Vikings to 6-1. More importantly, it makes them 2-0 in league play. They are the only undefeated league team left after three games, knocking Carthage (5-3, 2-1 CCIW) from the ranks of league unbeatens.

\u201cAs early as it is conference play, there's only one undefeated team,\u201d said Giovanine. \u201cThat's how balanced the league is going to be. It'll be a dogfight.\u201d

That's exactly what Saturday's game was as neither team gave much room to the other. The Vikings iced the contest by making nine of their final 10 free throws and shooting 20 of 23 from the line for the game.

\u201cThat's a tremendous stat,\u201d said Giovanine.

What was also tremendous was the way Augie stayed in a game in which it fell behind in the first half.

\u201cThey kept their composure, fought their way back and got a great road win,\u201d said the coach, whose club now closes out the calendar year with four nonconference contests.

Carthage 74, Augustana 67: The Vikings got to the foul line and limited their turnovers Saturday, but it wasn't enough to overcome 27.9 percent shooting from the field in their loss to the Lady Reds.

Augie's shooting woes were particularly felt in the second quarter as the Vikings hit just 3-15 from the field as Carthage turned a one-point Augie lead into an 11-point deficit.

Alleman graduate Izzy Anderson led the Vikings with 17 points, including hitting all eight of her free throws. Rock Island grad Justice Edell one-upped Anderson at the line, scoring all nine of her points from the free throw line as the Vikings went 24-31 as a team from the charity stripe.

Prophetstown grad Clare Kramer added 13 for the Vikings (5-2, 1-1) and Alexis Jones posted a double-double with 11 points and 10 boards.

Carthage (4-3, 1-2) was led by 32 points from Madie Kaelber, who went 11-17 from the field, including 4-5 from 3-point range.

Moline 65, Cedar Rapids Washington 64: Hannah Thiele scored 16 of her 22 points in the second half as the Maroons held on to top Iowa 5A-ranked Cedar Rapids Washington on Saturday.

Moline built a six-point halftime lead by holding Washington to just 23 first-half points before the offenses asserted themselves in the second half.

While Thiele shouldered the biggest scoring load for the Maroons, two of her teammates posted triple-doubles and a third only just missed.\u00a0Alannah Crompton chipped in 10 points, 16 rebounds and 3 assists; Megan Pittington scored 10 points and grabbed 13 boards; and Leticia Billups added 12 points and 9 rebounds for Moline.\u00a0

Caitlin Riley led a balanced Washington offense with 14 points. Six other Warriors scored between six and 11 points on the afternoon.

Rock Island 80, Danville 45: Brea Beal scored 28 points and grabbed 14 rebounds as the Rocks cruised past Danville on Saturday.

Rocky more than doubled up Danville in taking a 41-20 halftime lead, and they just continued to build the lead from there.

Chrislyn Carr added 17 for the Rocks, who shot better than 50 percent from the field (32-60) and outrebounded Danville 42-25.

Boys basketball

Normal West 50, Moline 47: For a second straight night, the Moline boys\u2019 basketball team tempted fate. On Saturday, at Normal West, fate bit back.

A night after needing late heroics to send a Western Big 6 game to overtime and remaining undefeated with a one-point win over Rock Island, Moline couldn\u2019t do the same against the Wildcats. The Maroons missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer that led to a 50-47 Normal West win.

It ended the Maroons\u2019 season-opening win streak at seven.

The similarity of the weekend games were not lost on Moline coach Sean\u00a0Taylor.

\u201cWe gave ourselves a chance in both,\" Taylor said. \"Here, we got a shot we wanted from one of our best players,\u201d with Jeff McInnis\u2019 trey try bouncing hard off the iron and into the hands of NW reserve Nick Forcade-Perkins.

Just 16 seconds earlier, McInnis had drained a 3-pointer from three or four feet deeper to pull the Maroons with one of the 5-2 Wildcats, 48-47. Those, though, were Moline\u2019s last points. With 14.3 seconds left, NW\u2019s 6-foot-9 junior Francis Okoro (9 points, 12 rebounds) broke away on a inbound and was intentionally fouled. He missed those two free throws, but was fouled again on the halfcourt inbound. He made both of those to finish 3-of-6 from the free-throw line.

Moline had three in double figures, led by Deonte Billups with 15, but on 6-of-15 shooting. McInnis finished with 12 points and Drew Wiemers scored 10.\u00a0

Davenport police have arrested a man on robbery and theft charges after he allegedly\u00a0grabbed a woman\u2019s purse from her shopping basket, and then hit her when she tried to retrieve it.

Thomas Gene Rauch, 52, of 1555 Crescent St., Ely, Iowa, is charged with two counts of second-degree robbery and one count of first-degree theft.

According to the arrest affidavit filed by Davenport Police officer Mark Dinneweth, at 8:09 a.m. Friday, a 65-year-old woman had completed her shopping at the Walmart Supercenter at 5811 Elmore Ave.

As the woman was pushing her cart to her vehicle, Rauch grabbed the woman\u2019s purse from her cart and went to his vehicle. When the woman went to Rauch\u2019s vehicle to retrieve her purse, Rauch punched her in the face, knocking her to the ground.

The woman sustained bruising and swelling to her face and head.

Rauch was captured in Eldridge by Iowa State Patrol troopers. He had the woman\u2019s purse in his vehicle.

Davenport Police detective Aric Robinson was able to connect Rauch to a similar incident that occurred Oct. 15 at 7:38 p.m. at the Hy-Vee grocery store at 2200 W. Kimberly Road.

According to the arrest affidavit filed by Robinson, Rauch pushed a woman to the ground in an attempt to steal the woman\u2019s purse. Robinson did not say in his affidavit that Rauch got the woman\u2019s purse, only that he had the intent to steal it and pushed the woman to the ground to get it.

Each of the charges filed against Rauch is a Class C felony under Iowa law that carries a prison sentence of up to 10 years.

Rauch was being held Saturday night in the Scott County Jail on cash-only bonds totaling $10,000.

PORT BYRON \u2014 With the prep wrestling season just a couple of weeks old, Sherrard head coach Jeff Garrett describes his squad as a \"work in progress.\"

If that is the case, then the Tigers made significant progress in their first large-scale meet of the young season.

Competing at Riverdale's Jim Boyd Invitational Saturday, Sherrard advanced five of its wrestlers to the finals, with one of that quintet, Karsyn Hanson, bringing home the 220-pound championship.

More importantly, the Tigers were able to edge Rock Falls for the team title, tallying 227.5 points to the runner-up Rockets' 222 points. Meet host Riverdale (127 points) took fifth out of 11 teams.

\"We've made mistakes, and we're trying to learn from them. We're still a work in progress,\" said Garrett. \"But, the guys are listening, and they're catching on. We've had a good week, with last weekend (two wins at the North-South Duals), two dual-meet wins this week, and now this.

\"We had 14 kids wrestling for medals today, and I'm happy with that. I'm very proud of them.\"

Hanson, who has moved down from 285 pounds to compete at 220 this year, took control early in his title bout against Putnam County-Hall's Joseph Mecogni and went on to post an 8-3 victory.

\"Coming in, I was very nervous. The Putnam County kid (Mecogni) was strong and athletic,\" Hanson (9-2) said. \"We'd had three of our guys lose in the finals, so I had to break the ice and get things going for us. That was in the back of my mind.\"

The Tigers' Jacob Hanson lost a 2-1 heartbreaker to Rock Falls' Izaih James in the 126-pound finals. Teammates Carson Caldwell and Steele Gustafson were pinned in the title matches for 145 and 170 pounds, respectively. At 285, Jarrett Bailey fell 4-1 to PCH's Eric Cissell.

\"Karsyn came down from heavyweight, and he's 40 pounds lighter,\" said Garrett. \"He's doing his part, and showing our underclassmen the way it needs to be done. All of our seniors are very good leaders.\"

Riverdale had three of its wrestlers advance to the finals, and all three of them came away with gold medals.

At 138 pounds, the Rams' Colton Reiman pinned Rock Falls' Reiley Dowd in 4:26, while freshman 182-pounder Bryan Caves scored a 12-0 major decision over Dubuque Senior's Carter Konrardy.

\"This means a lot. It's a good confidence-booster for me,\" Reiman said of his win. \"I was kind of out of breath in the third period, with two noseplugs in, but I felt like I had the upper hand.\"

Said Caves: \"This was a big goal for me. As a freshman, I was kind of doubting myself, but I knew I could do it, and I battled through.\"

The 152-pound title bout pitted Ram vs. Ram, with sophomore Trystan Altensey pinning classmate K.J. Arnold in 1:24.

\"I was third here last year, so this was pretty important to me,\" Altensey said of his win. \"It was pretty weird (going up against a teammate).\"

Davenport North placed fourth with 141.5 points, with the Wildcats' Dakota Wright placing second at 195 pounds.

The Wildcats' Tony Pena, Noah Schoephorster and Priest Sheedy each took third place.\u00a0

IOWA CITY \u2014 Opening the season with its best start in five years has been a collaborative effort for the Iowa women's basketball team.

The Hawkeyes improved to 10-1 on the season Saturday, routing Arkansas-Pine Bluff 85-45 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena with an effort similar to the victories that preceded it.

Iowa recorded assists on 23 of its 28 baskets, work that allowed the Hawkeyes to grab a 27-8 lead after one quarter that grew to 47-22 by halftime.

Seven Iowa players had at least one assist, among the reasons the Hawkeyes currently lead NCAA Division I with an average of 24 assists per game.

\"This team loves to pass the ball. We celebrate the assist,\" coach Lisa Bluder said. \"When you have players that give up a good shot for a great shot, that's team basketball at its finest. We love to play that way.\"

Four Hawkeyes finished in double figures as Iowa shot 57.1 percent for the game.

Megan Gustafson the way with a 19-point, 10-rebound performance, complemented by 16 points from Tania Davis and 11 apiece from Makenzie Meyer and Kathleen Doyle.

Gustafson needed just 23 minutes to record her 10th double-double of the season.

\"Megan getting a double-double playing half the game, that was pretty cool,\" Bluder said.

Arkansas-Pine Bluff (2-6) went just 3-of-16 from the field in the opening quarter and shot just 28.8 percent for the game.

IOWA CITY \u2014 Fans are being encouraged to wear their ugly holiday sweaters to today\u2019s basketball game between Iowa and Southern University.

At the same time, most of those fans will be hoping for an end to the ugly basketball.

Iowa has lost six of its past seven games entering the 4 p.m. contest at Carver-Hawkeye Arena and is one of only two Big Ten teams with a sub-.500 record right now. The Hawkeyes are 4-6 and Wisconsin fell to 4-7 on Saturday.

It hasn\u2019t been difficult to identify Iowa's problem in the most recent games. The Hawkeyes have turned the ball over 18 times in each of the past three games, and Iowa State converted those turnovers into 28 points in an 84-78 loss to the Cyclones on Thursday night.

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery has continually said that many of the turnovers are the result of players trying too hard to make something positive happen.

\"Some of it I think is a little bit of lack of focus,\" junior forward Nicholas Baer added. \"Obviously, we want to try to get the ball to our scorers. Another thing is people are pressuring us, and we need to be strong with the ball and just continue to make good decisions.

\"The turnover situation is obviously something we need to get corrected and I\u2019m confident we will.\"

It will help that the Hawkeyes likely will be facing a travel-weary opponent today. Southern (2-7) played at Central Florida on Saturday afternoon before making the trip to Iowa City.

But Iowa also might be a bit shorthanded. Forward Cordell Pemsl, one of the catalysts of a second-half charge Thursday, tumbled out of bounds and suffered a deep laceration in his right leg in the final minutes. X-rays did not reveal any broken bones, but Pemsl could miss today\u2019s game.

The Hawkeyes said they just need to keep looking forward and grinding away.

\"It\u2019s tough looking back at these games \u2026,\" sophomore Jordan Bohannon said. \"We just have to keep fighting and keep moving forward.\"

The sometimes combustible McCaffery said he\u2019s trying to help his team get through this rough stretch regardless of how frustrated he is.

\"I don\u2019t think my frustration level has anything to do with it,\" he said after the loss at Iowa State. \"Talking about that isn\u2019t productive. I didn\u2019t go in there and turn chairs over or anything.\"

A young St. Ambrose men\u2019s basketball team took an important step forward Saturday, ending a five-game losing streak by answering a late-game challenge.

The Fighting Bees fought off Trinity Christian 76-65 at Lee Lohman Arena, outscoring the Trolls 16-5 over the final 6 minutes, 15 seconds in a Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference game filled with a mountain of momentum swings.

\"When they made their run, we answered. We stuck with the plan, made good decisions and that was good to see,\" St. Ambrose coach Ray Shovlain said. \"That\u2019s improvement, and that\u2019s where we are at right now, trying to get better each and every day.\"

Down six early but up six at the half, St. Ambrose rode the hot hand of sophomore Jake Meeske to build a 56-41 lead with 12 minutes, 49 seconds remaining.

The sophomore from United Township scored 11 of his 15 points during a five-minute stretch midway through the second half, but Trinity Christian answered, playing its way back into the game by holding St. Ambrose scoreless over the next four minutes.

The Trolls tied the game at 60-60 on a 10-foot jumper from the left wing by Nate Hurt, a freshman from Moline who finished with 11 points for Trinity Christian.

John Kerr, one of two freshmen in the Bees\u2019 lineup, answered on the ensuing possession.

He muscled his way to the basket for two of his game-high 27 points while moving St. Ambrose ahead to stay at 62-60 with 6:17 remaining.

Greg Wagner and Kerr combined to score the Bees\u2019 next 10 points over a five-minute stretch, extending the lead to 70-62 on a basket by Kerr with 1:26 to play.

The 6-foot-7 Kerr knocked down 10-of-13 shots and grabbed eight rebounds, an effort Meeske complemented with a 10-rebound game that led the Bees toward a 40-27 advantage on the boards.

\"We were moving the ball well, and the shots I was getting, anybody on our team could have hit. They set me up with some good, open looks,\" said Kerr, who scored 16 of his points in the first half to help the Fighting Bees (6-7, 2-4 CCAC) to a 36-30 halftime advantage.

St. Ambrose helped itself by limiting Trinity Christian to 36.2-percent shooting, which Kerr believed proved to be the biggest area of growth for the Bees.

\"We played way better on the defensive end, and we had to because we needed to get a big conference win,\" Kerr said. \"That was the main thing today \u2014 get a win \u2014 and that started on defense for us. That gave us a chance.\"

Eight Bees scored, eight grabbed rebounds and eight dished out assists in the win.

\"That\u2019s the way we have to play and we want to play,\" Shovlain said. \"We\u2019re the type of team that needs contributions from a lot of players, and we got that today. That\u2019s progress for us, what we want to see.\"

Caleb Jonkman led the Trolls (5-9, 1-5) with 26 points.

Every second counts.

Ask the St. Ambrose women\u2019s basketball team.

The 3-pointer Colleen Grady banked in from beyond 30 feet to beat the halftime buzzer in a 13-point game proved to be the difference Saturday as the Queen Bees rallied for a 64-62 Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference victory over Trinity Christian at Lee Lohman Arena.

Grady launched her first 3-point try of the season after officials added four-tenths of a second to the clock following a Trinity Christian turnover, giving St. Ambrose one-half of a second to work with and gain some valuable momentum.

Charlotte Flynn\u2019s inbounds pass from the backcourt arrived just in time for Grady to turn and launch a shot that pulled the Queen Bees within a 39-29 score at the break.

\"That shot got us going,\" said Reeann McCarty, who finished off a 17-point, 11-rebound performance when she scored what proved to be game-winning points on a baseline drive with 1 minute, 45 seconds remaining.

It wasn\u2019t the first nearly half-court shot Grady had hit Saturday.

Coach Krista Van Hauen said the sophomore hit one from a similar distance during a shoot-around earlier in the day.

\"Football can be a game of inches, and basketball, sometimes this can be a game of seconds. Colleen made the most of the half-second we had left to go in down 10 at the half,\" Van Hauen said. \"It was a big shot. Colleen\u2019s been playing well for us, and that basket energized everybody.\"

St. Ambrose, which trailed by 14 points on two occasions during the opening half, played that way in the second half.

The Queen Bees coupled a defense that held the Trolls without a point over the final 5:25 with a 43-18 advantage on the boards and a 62.5-percent touch from the field in the final two quarters to secure the victory.

St. Ambrose connected on 15-of-24 shots after halftime, using nine second-half points as part of 14-point game by Moline\u2019s Hailey Cook and a critical 3-pointer by another former Maroon, Hannah Ford, to pull within 51-46 after three quarters.

A jumper by Grady with 4:25 remaining pulled the Queen Bees within 62-60, allowing Madi Epperson to tie the game with a basket with 3:49 to go.

The teams traded turnovers before McCarty found room to drive the baseline for her game-deciding lay-in for St. Ambrose (4-8, 3-3 CCAC).

\"It was good to come back in the second half and play the way we did to come back and get the win,\" McCarty said. \"We stepped up and played defense the way we needed to down the stretch to give ourselves a chance. We held on and got the win we needed.\"

Celina Wanta led Trinity Christian (5-6, 3-3) with 17 points.

AMES, Iowa \u2014 It took only three days for the Iowa State men\u2019s basketball team to feel as if it hit rock bottom. After losing by 18 points at Hilton Coliseum to Milwaukee, a team expected to struggle in the Summit League, the Cyclones looked lost.

Steve Prohm, though, had a vision for how his team needed to navigate the darkness and find a ladder out of the hole they found themselves in. They needed to be tough, he said. They needed to be nasty, he proclaimed. They needed a chip on their shoulder, he demanded.

Less than a month later, and after a gutty 84-78 win over rival Iowa on Thursday, it appears the Cyclones are headed squarely in that direction.

\u201cWe\u2019re growing up,\u201d Prohm said. \u201cWe\u2019ve got a long way to go. We don\u2019t have our identity yet, but we\u2019re starting to make steps.\u201d

The Cyclones\u2019 success of the past six NCAA tournament seasons hasn\u2019t really been built on their grit. It\u2019s been a resilient program, no doubt. There are the huge comebacks to prove it. But those wins were powered by a high-octane offense that could land a knockout punch that would leave opponents wondering what happened before they hit the canvas.

This team won an ugly game Thursday in a high-stakes environment against a team with a seemingly endless supply of bigger, stronger players. That\u2019s nothing short of extremely encouraging for a young and inexperienced group.

\u201cWe performed,\u201d junior Nick Weiler-Babb said after he became the first Cyclone to register double-digit assists in four-straight games, compiling 10 helpers, 15 points, six rebounds and four steals against the Hawkeyes.

In some ways, it is as simple as performing. The Cyclones, with freshman Lindell Wigginton (24 points) emerging as their star, are relying on players who have largely, until now, not proven they can get it done when the pressure is packed and the stakes are high.

No one can question Donovan Jackson\u2019s clutch-time resume, but the rest of the group is an unknown.

They\u2019re starting to prove it in a serious way.

The Cyclones went into halftime down five against the Hawkeyes, but took the lead midway through the second half. When Iowa pulled to within three, the Cyclones responded with a triple from Jackson, a steal from Hans Brase and a 3 from Wigginton, all in the course of 23 seconds.

It was a flurry of activity that Naz Mitrou-Long, seated as a spectator at half court, could recognize as vintage Cyclone.

Those types of sequences, though, aren\u2019t why ISU won.

It was getting stops late. It was getting to the free-throw line. It was mixing it up fearlessly with Iowa\u2019s sizable frontline.

The Cyclones were tough. They were gritty. They were nasty. The chip was quite visible on their shoulder.

\u201cWhat I learned is what we\u2019re capable of when we do the right things that we can surprise some people,\u201d Prohm said. \u201cI learned when things are tough, they can respond. I learned that we\u2019ve got good character.

\u201cIf you\u2019ve got character, ability and toughness, then you can do special things.\u201d

Even after six-straight wins, it\u2019s hard to re-calibrate expectations for this Cyclones team. This win against Iowa is probably the best on their resume, and the Hawkeyes are a mess right now, having lost six of their last seven.

That\u2019s not ISU\u2019s problem, though. Since the Milwaukee debacle, the Cyclones have taken on all comers.

The holes and inconsistencies are still there, but the Cyclones just keeping fighting with little care for anything other than the moment they\u2019re in.

It\u2019s a team that doesn\u2019t seem to care about its warts. That\u2019s important for a team trying to play with an edge. A team that wants to out-tough opponents. A team that wants nastiness to be its namesake.

Pretty doesn\u2019t put points on the scoreboard, but ugly wins count the same in the standings.

If you were like me in the past few weeks, you did plenty of shopping either in store, or online, or a little of both. I definitely spent the most amount of money at Kohl\u2019s, mostly online (thank you delivery drivers), yet I saved a whole lot more money, plus received some back in return. To get the most out of Kohl\u2019s shopping, you have to know how to play the game, so here are some of the key things you need to know to shop and save the most at Kohl\u2019s.

1. Get the Kohl\u2019s credit card

Now, I only advocate this if you can pay it off in full every month to avoid paying interest, but having a Kohl\u2019s credit card means lots of additional savings throughout the year. There are often offers for up to 30 percent off, as well as free shipping, only for Kohl\u2019s card holders. You might get a mailer with 15 or 20 percent off, but online you can always use the 30 percent off code, even if it\u2019s not what you got in the mail. Pair that with the free shipping, and you have a great deal without even having to leave the house. Plus, there are promo coupons sent throughout the year, like $10 off any $10 or more purchase.

2. Earn rewards

Be sure to join YES2YOU rewards so you can earn 1 point for every dollar spent, and when you earn 100 points, you will get a $5 reward the first day of the next month, good for 30 days. Points do carry over until the end of the year. Another way to earn rewards is through Kohl\u2019s Cash. Many times throughout the year, you can earn $10 Kohl\u2019s Cash on a $50 purchase to be redeemed on a future purchase in a specific time frame. Because Kohl\u2019s Cash and rewards can be redeemed on almost anything, it\u2019s the perfect way to pick up some items for free that you might need like towels or socks, or pick up small gifts to put away for a birthday or Christmas.

3. Stack offers

At Kohl\u2019s, you can use multiple types of coupons and rewards to save more. For example, shortly before Black Friday, there was a surprise one-day-only coupon code sent to email subscribers. For maybe the first time ever, I received a 40 percent off coupon. There was also a coupon for $10 off a $50 home purchase. Plus, there was an offer for Kohl\u2019s Cash. After doing the math, I realized that I would get a better deal then, instead of waiting until Black Friday week on two of the big items I had my eye on: a Roomba and an air fryer. You can redeem only one percent-off coupon, but usually can use different types of dollar-off coupons if you meet the terms. The important thing to note is how they stack the coupons; any dollar-off coupon, Kohl\u2019s Cash, or reward will come off the total first, and then the percentage off. Kohl\u2019s cash will also be earned on the total after all discounts. Be sure to read the fine print on the percentage and dollar-off coupons as they do have some exclusions (like the Fitbit I bought). However, you can still earn and redeem Kohl\u2019s Cash and rewards on those items. If there is no free shipping code at the time, you can also do free store pick-up, though you\u2019re limited to what they have in stock in store.

4. Shop sales and clearance carefully

I understand the marketing strategy that many stores use. The original prices are high, so when it goes on sale, it seems like a great deal, and people will buy. At Kohl\u2019s, things are very often on sale. But if you shop there often enough, you learn when the sale is actually a really good sale, instead of just a marketing strategy. Thirty percent off isn\u2019t that great if you know that brand often goes to 50 percent off. You will also know that the clearance price might not be that great until it gets marked down more, and that you\u2019ll find better clearance in store, rather than online. But, when you can pair those great sales and clearance prices with coupons and rewards, it makes for some fantastic deals.

Sometimes at Kohl\u2019s, waiting until just the right time will get you the best prices. One thing is for certain, never pay full price at Kohl\u2019s. Even on the excluded items that you cannot get cheaper with coupons, wait until you can earn Kohl\u2019s Cash at least. If you use these tips to shop at Kohl\u2019s, it might very well become one of your favorite stores, just like it is for me.

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa \u2014 From a production standpoint, the numbers Wyatt Lohaus put up against Texas-Arlington on Thursday were fairly pedestrian.

In 11 minutes of action, the junior guard recorded two points on 1-of-3 shooting, while adding two rebounds and a steal in Northern Iowa's 62-58 win.

And though none of those numbers are likely to leap out at anyone, there was a much more significant figure to take into account when assessing Lohaus' performance.

355.

That's how many days it had been since the former Iowa Mr. Basketball had competed in game action with the Panthers, as a litany of leg injuries kept him sidelined for an extended and, by Lohaus' own admission, frustrating period of time.

The process began with an ankle injury he sustained last November at the Tire Pros Invitational in Orlando.

Initially sidelined for four games, Lohaus returned to action thinking the ailment would be temporary. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case, and just two games after getting back into the lineup, he re-aggravated the injury badly enough that he had to miss the remainder of the season.

Retaining a year of eligibility thanks to a medical redshirt, he returned with a clean bill of health, eager to regain his spot in the UNI starting lineup, only to suffer another setback.

Shortly after working through a minor knee ailment, Lohaus went down with a persistent toe injury, which caused him to miss eight more games and kept him in a walking shoe for several weeks.

Such a prolonged bout with injuries would test most players' resolve, and Lohaus admits to feeling \"a ton\" of frustration during the seemingly endless rehab process. But while not wanting to go through it again, he says the extended layoff wasn't without its benefits.

\"It definitely made me tougher,\" said Lohaus, who secured one of his two rebounds on his first defensive series of the season. \"(It) just forced me to stay mentally strong and stay ready.\"

The \"stay ready\" mentality will be of great benefit for Lohaus who, at least for the time being, will come off the Panther bench, joining a second unit highly in need of an added offensive punch.

Through nine games, Spencer Haldeman has accounted for nearly 54 percent of UNI's bench scoring by himself. The Panther's second-leading reserve scorer, Miles Wentzien, scored all 11 of his points in one game.

Lohaus' return also provides leadership for a 7-2 team with expectations that continue to grow with each passing day.

\"For him to have to sit out (was) killing him,\" senior teammate Klint Carlson said. \"And now that he's getting back into the swing of things, it's really good for him and really good for our team. He's been around here for four years. He's another leader that we can add to our team.\"

Lohaus could be in line for more playing time today, when the Panthers host Dubuque, a Division III foe that enters on a three-game losing streak.

With a bow, with a gun and with my pick-up truck. About a dozen, more than 100 and 5, respectively.

From when I was very young I wanted to accompany my father on his annual excursion from Long Island to the Catskill Mountains of New York in search of the whitetail which, 60 years ago, were even more rare than they were elusive. Finally, at the legal age of 16, my chance came.

Barely 15 minutes into my first hunt, I harvested a young buck. Beginners luck? You betcha. But it was enough to hook me for life, never mind the bloody nose I got when the aft end of the rifle\u2019s bolt shattered the bow end of my nose. Yes, in the excitement of the moment, I completely forgot about vicious \u201crecoil.\u201d

I believe most of the people who don\u2019t hunt today were never introduced to it when they were younger. Many of them don\u2019t object to other people hunting, they simply don\u2019t have the desire to try it. Some tried it and didn\u2019t like it. Like me and kale, Disney World and golf. Kale tastes like blech, so why bother? Disney provides an escape from reality, but most of my life has been spent in fantasy land anyway. And if you ever saw me try to drive a golf ball straight, you\u2019d know why I don\u2019t pursue that particular prescription for self-inflicted aggravation.

I think I\u2019ve evolved as many hunters and fishers do, in that my goals have changed over time. When a youngster first goes hunting or fishing, the goal is, \u201cCan I get one?\u201d But the goal soon changes to, \u201cHow many can I get.\u201d At some point, size becomes an issue: a bigger buck or bluegill. Eventually, most realize that catching a critter is not as important as the experience itself: just being there, trying to become one with nature. Observing and absorbing the world that is different and unique, every place, every day, every trip afield, even if we return to the same ratty folding chair by the farm pond or the same rickety tree stand that you know is a calamity waiting to happen. Something is always different than the last time.

The leaves have opened, turned or fallen, the wisp of wind has replaced yesterday\u2019s steady blow from the east. Even the air is different\u00a0\u2014 you can feel it on your skin, you can smell it, sometimes you can even hear it.

And so, as I stand sixth in line in the convenience store at 5 a.m. on the opening morning of this year\u2019s deer season, getting overheated in my five layers of hunting garb, a large coffee in one hand, the other balancing a couple jelly donuts atop a slice of breakfast pizza (both on the list of succulent snacks my doctor told me to avoid. I\u2019m gonna have to find a new doctor. He\u2019s heartless.) I will be anxious for the morning ceremony in the timber.

The curious chickadees will flit by first, followed by the creeping nuthatches and maybe a blue jay. A raccoon might waddle by, getting home late from his foray into the cut corn field. The air will be so crisp that when I inhale it will freeze the lining of my nostrils which will crinkle up when I wiggle my nose. And then, from behind me (it\u2019s always from behind me) I will hear the unmistakable \u201ctsch, tsch\u201d of a whitetail\u2019s hooves infringing on the frozen leaves. Of course, it would more likely be a squirrel, but I won\u2019t turn to look. Maybe it will promenade around in front of me, or maybe it will wander away, over the ridge and out of sight.

And that would be OK. At this point in my life, I\u2019m there for the experience, so I can make believe it was a record-book buck. Anyway, it would probably taste like blech and I can fantasize forever about shooting straight.
