CAMBRIDGE, Ill. \u2014 Lanette Carlson loves to decorate,\u00a0do makeovers, and find new\u00a0uses for the\u00a0wood, tin and other architectural items her husband\u00a0salvages out of\u00a0barns, homes, and other buildings\u00a0through their Carlson's Barnwood Co.

She has done so many projects, additions and re-dos at their\u00a0home in rural Henry County\u00a0that she finally had to look elsewhere for opportunities.

In 2011, the company began buying homes that were in foreclosure or otherwise needy,\u00a0fixing them up and selling them, always incorporating Carlson's\u00a0decorating touch and numerous salvaged items.

This year they completed\u00a0their fifth home, a 1920s Arts and Crafts-style bungalow in Cambridge. It will be open for tours Saturday-Sunday, June 3-4. Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.

The home at 202 E. Court St.\u00a0also will\u00a0be staged \u2014 inside and out \u2014 with furniture and \"little cutesies,\" as Carlson calls decorating items.

The home's builder was\u00a0John Gault, who constructed\u00a0many of the town's nicer homes at the\u00a0beginning of the 20th Century, Carlson said.

\"I always admired this house when I went through town,\" she said. \"I thought it was the neatest home.\"

The exterior is covered with stucco, which Carlson's Barnwood crew repaired and then painted in a\u00a0tri-color scheme of Stonehenge \"greige\" (a combination of gray and beige), trimmed with dungeon bronze and cream. The front door will be a dark green called mallard feather.

The inside\u00a0is filled with\u00a0lots of original character, including hardwood floors, exceptionally deep crown molding in the front rooms, a colonnade with shelves dividing the living room and dining room, a built-in china cupboard in the dining room and a set of pocket doors between the two front parlors.

In addition to putting a shine on those original features, the Carlsons \u2014 well, mostly Lanette \u2014 have put in new\u00a0touches. \"Where there wasn't character, we are giving it some,\" Carlson said. Here are five:

\u2022 Entrance room: The ceiling\u00a0was not in good shape, so they covered it with decorative tin that was salvaged from an Alexis auto dealer. After scraping off the flaking paint and rust, they painted it a color called hammered copper, then applied an ebony glaze.

\u2022 Kitchen:\u00a0The walls were covered with brick-red Z-brick, a product that was popular at one time but now has largely\u00a0fallen out of favor. Rather than try to remove it all, Carlson freshened it with a whitewash mixture of plaster of Paris and paint.

\u2022 Back bedroom: The room had no special features, so\u00a0the Carlsons installed whitewashed\u00a0wood beams on the ceilings, with corbels, for a cottage look.

\u2022 Hallway:\u00a0The Carlsons installed crown molding salvaged from Jumer's Lodge, Bettendorf.\u00a0

\u2022 Upstairs bonus room: Covered a chimney with tin sheets made to look like bricks that were salvaged from a barn, then made a fireplace mantel out of salvaged wood to set in front of it. The ceiling is covered with beadboard salvaged from a\u00a0Geneseo church.

The home is\u00a0deceptively large, with\u00a0two front parlors, a dining room, kitchen, full bath and back bedroom on the first floor. The second parlor, separated from the first with pocket doors and containing a closet, could be used as a bedroom.

Upstairs there is a large \"bonus\" room at the top of the stairs and two bedrooms with a \"jack and jill\" bathroom between them.\u00a0All told, it's about 2,500 square feet.

You'll also\u00a0find interesting ideas in the backyard, where the Carlsons have built a patio from salvaged bricks and a firepit. And it will be decorated with all kinds of garden items \u2014 some not typically considered for gardens \u2014 from the antique shop run by Lanette Carlson's sister.

The asking price of the home is $135,000.

Elected officials, not political appointees, should be making policy. Unfortunately, Davenport Levee Commission is too accustomed to lording over the riverfront to cede any ground.

It's patently absurd that a four-fifths supermajority of Davenport City Council -- a wholly elected body -- is required to overturn a Levee Commission decision. That's eight of 10 votes, a nearly insurmountable number, which, in essence, robs elected officials and their constituents a democratic voice.

That reality isn't lost on city officials. Last week,\u00a0City Attorney Tom Warner offered a proposed change that would require just a six-vote simple majority of the City Council to overrule a Levee Commission edict.

Predictably, the Levee Commission -- still basking in its political victory over Mayor Frank Klipsch's proposal to weaken the commission's power -- had none of it. Instead, Commissioner Karl Rhomberg authored a parliamentary\u00a0response that rejected the most weighty aspect of the city's proposed overhaul of operations.

With the support of his peers, Rhomberg offered an official nose thumbing aimed at City Hall.

No doubt, the Levee Commission earlier this year felt attacked when Klipsch looked to fuse it with other boards that oversee parks. Klipsch's proposal would have essentially turned a regulatory body into an advisory\u00a0board. But the Levee Commission mustered support and survived.

Wednesday's maneuver\u00a0amounts\u00a0to the recently\u00a0besieged Levee Commission flexing its collective muscles.\u00a0

Remove the players and look at the issue objectively. At present, the Levee Commission wields\u00a0almost unheard of power in Davenport. Its members serve six-year terms, often outliving the political life of the mayors by whom they were appointed. Most regular city business -- planning, zoning, the budget -- is determined by a simple majority vote of the council. So, too, should any decision about riverfront policy.

And yet, when it comes to the riverfront, Davenport is mired in an anachronistic\u00a0process that gives outsized voice to certain circles.

The Levee Commission wasn't chartered 106 years ago to be Davenport's de-facto environmental regulator along the riverfront. No, it was created to manage leases. But, as the riverfront transitioned away from industry to recreation, most of those leases disappeared.

In response, the Levee Commission pivoted to activism. It became a place for environmentally minded and pro-development mayors alike to stash political supporters. That said, the unpaid gig tends to self-select for those with, shall we say, a green bent.

And, thanks to the draconian requirement for a supermajority, it's the segment\u00a0of the community that dominates riverfront policy.

The riverfront belongs to every Davenport taxpayer. Each voter, regardless of political perspective, deserves equal voice. That democratic imperative\u00a0is why the City Council is broken into wards. It's why City Council members must bang on doors every two years. It's why the ultimate power falls to those ultimately accountable to the voters.

But you wouldn't know it in Davenport, as a politically packed regulatory body has the power to decide whether a project along the riverfront lives or dies. Elected officials should be making those decisions. Unfortunately, that won't happen as long as eight votes are needed to overcome the Levee Commission's heavy hand. \u00a0

\"The Forgotten Few\" will be forgotten no more.

During a special ceremony Saturday at City Cemetery in Davenport, 20 headstones were dedicated honoring 19 Civil War veterans and one veteran from the Spanish-American War.

The event was called \u201cThe Forgotten Few: A Veterans Remembrance Ceremony.\u201d

\u201cFor generations to come, people will know that these men served their country,\u201d said Jason Morin, a historian with the Army Sustainment Command at the Rock Island Arsenal, and the keynote speaker.

The event came about after Kory Darnall, of Davenport, who has volunteered at the cemetery for years, was researching burials and helping to make improvements.

But he soon discovered that not all veterans buried in the cemetery\u00a0have headstones. He was aware of a Veterans Administration gravestone program that funds new headstones for vets. So, he contacted Coky Powers of Davenport, a retired school librarian, to help in track down documentation.

Eventually, they were able to identify names and get backgrounds on all 20 soldiers buried there in need of headstones.

\u201cMost of the soldiers were from Germany,\u201d she said.

The program was arranged by Natalie Woodhurst, coordinator of veterans recruitment and services at St. Ambrose University, Davenport.

\"It was very exciting,\u201d Woodhurst said. \u201cIt is a once-in-a-lifetime thing. And it was very exciting to finally give them their recognition.\u201d

The event included the Honor Guard from the Rock Island Arsenal, taps being played; the Blackhawk Pipes and Drums of the Quad-Cities played the drums and bagpipes; local artist Don Mitchem sang, and there also was a 21-gun salute and 1862 cannon fire.

A crowd of about 100 attended.

\u201cI just wanted to be part of this,\u201d said B.J. Wilson of Galesburg, Mich., who was visiting her sister who lives in the area.

Karen Crum of East Moline is doing research on her family history and has come across a Heinrich Gerdts, one of the names on the new headstones.

\u201cI am curious about one marker, but I do not know if he is connected to this or not,\u201d saying she does not know if the Gerdts on the headstone is her relative.

A family reunion of sorts took place after the event when several distant relatives of Carl Wendt gathered to take pictures of his new marker. He was a Civil War veteran who was killed while fishing in 1901.

Sheila Schafer and Sherry Murphy,\u00a0 both\u00a0of Rock Island, said they were distance cousins to Carl Wendt.

But suddenly Mike Wendt of East Moline came over to the marker on display and they asked if he was a Wendt. He told them he is the great, great-grandson of Carl Wendt. They all had never met.

\u201cHe is finally getting the honor he deserves,\u201d Mike Wendt said of Carl. \u201cThe family is happy he is being recognized. He was captured at the Battle of Bull Run and sent to Fort Sumter in Andersonville, Ga. He escaped and came all the way back to Cordova, where he lived.\u201d

\u201cI think this event is cool,\u201d Murphy said. \u201cI am finding so much more about my family history after all these years.\u201d

With former players who helped build Bettendorf boys soccer into the powerhouse that it is looking on Saturday afternoon, the current Bulldogs team marked their own place in history.

For the first time in five years, Bettendorf punched its ticket to the state tournament in Des Moines with a 5-2 victory over Davenport Central in a Class 3A substate final at Touvelle Stadium.

Bettendorf (14-1) advances to the state quarterfinals where it will play Urbandale on Thursday at 5:10 p.m.

Bulldogs coach Ben Pennington, who has coached soccer at Bettendorf for 36 years, said former players Tim Stoltz and Brian Lockey were in attendance for the game. Nathan Seaberg, who was one of the most prolific goal scorers in the school's history, was also on hand to celebrate with the Bulldogs.

Pennington said seeing Stoltz and Lockey, who live in the suburbs of Chicago and played for Pennington when he just started out in the early 1980s, brought back great memories.

\"It's nice to see those guys and have their support,\" he said. \"They played for me and they are a part of all this.\"

The Bulldogs had lost their last four substate final games all by one goal. It seemed from the opening whistle that this team was determined to return to the state tournament, where it was a participant every year from 1995 to 2012.

Junior Blake Rollinger got things going for the home team in the seventh minute when he took an over-the-top lob pass from Dustin Harris into the penalty area and whipped a shot past Central keeper Damien Burtle to make it 1-0.

Rollinger said the team came out determined to jump on the talented Blue Devils early.

\"We knew Central was going to challenge us hard but we focused all week on coming out with intensity and going right at them,\" Rollinger said. \"We wanted to get this one for all the coaches and the players who didn't make it (to state).\"

The Bulldogs sent seven shots on Burtle within in the first 15 minutes of the contest. Junior Zach Elias added the second goal for the Bulldogs in the 19th minute, in what could be nominated for the goal of the season.

Elias focused in on a pass from Rollinger that came from midfield and was slightly bouncing away from him roughly 20 yards from goal. Still going to his left, Elias used the outside of his right foot to flick a shot back towards the far left post. The slow-moving, floating possibly stunned Burtle, who couldn't react in time just to watch the slowing bouncing ball sneak inside the left post.

\"It was beautiful,\" Rollinger said. \"Zach's footwork sometimes is amazing to watch.\"

Bettendorf pushed the lead to 3-0 just 21 seconds into the second half as Rollinger put a cross six yards out in front of goal that George Elias got a header on to increase the lead.

But the Blue Devils (12-5) didn't go away. Central was able to pull a goal back in the 58th minute when Dario Gonzalez converted a penalty kick to make it 3-1. The Blue Devils, who only had one shot on goal in the first half, managed to make Bulldogs keeper Sam Murphy a busy man in the last 40 minutes with nine shots on goal. Murphy made six of his seven saves in the game's last 25 minutes.

\"Central is a dangerous team and we knew they were not going away,\" Murphy said. \"I like the fact that they challenged us and didn't pack it in. We were able to answer.\"

Bettendorf regained its breathing room when sophomore Keegan Schmidt let loose a 35-yard blast that found the top right corner to make it 4-1 in the 60th minute. The Blue Devils got their second goal when Alex McLeland headed in a great free kick from Joey Lantzky in the 68th minute. Harris snagged the Bulldogs' last goal in the 78th minute.

Central coach Sean Harkness said he was proud of his team's season and the foundation that seniors Daniel Deckert, Nate Trasoech, Keegan Clark, Matt Gonzalez and Dario Gonzalez are leaving behind.

\"They never stopped fighting,\" Harkness said. \"This group has really helped turn things around and this senior group has been the core and it's tough to see them go.\"

While the Blue Devils season is over, the Bulldogs have their sights set on bigger things, now that they are back in familiar territory.

\"It's the best feeling I could ask for and there is no group of guys I would rather go to war with every single day than these guys,\" Murphy said. \"We will be ready for anything and it's just going to be a matter of executing.\"

\u00a0The song has ended for the longtime Music Go Round store in Davenport, but the music goes on for the legions of Quad-City musicians it has served.

Owner Mark Ruebling has decided to retire after 19 years in the used music equipment business. The store, located in the Village Shopping Center at 902 W. Kimberly Road, closed\u00a0its doors Saturday.

\"I'd been trying to sell it for the last year and was not able to find a buyer,\" said Ruebling, a lifelong Davenport resident.

His store was the last Music Go Round franchise in Iowa. But the Winmark Corp., the franchisor, has more than 1,180 franchises under the brands Music Go Round, Style Encore, Plato's Closet, Once Upon A Child and Play It Again Sports.\u00a0

Ruebling, 59, said\u00a0major back surgery five years ago was making \"it harder and harder to do a competent job.\" The store's closing impacts a couple of\u00a0other employees.

Music Go Round carried all types of used equipment from guitars to basses, amplifiers, saxophones and more \u2014 everything from pianos and organs.

But saying goodbye to customers who have sold and bought used instruments and musical equipment has been tough. \"The musical community is such a tight-knit group. We've gotten to know and get close to a lot of our customers.\"

And those customers have never ceased to amaze him. \"I've seen a lot of interesting musical instruments come through the door,\" he said. \"You never knew from one day to the next what people were going to come in and sell to you.\"

Southpark Bakery takes a long vacation

What Leo Simmons has is no half-baked idea \u2014 taking off the summer and then some from his Southpark Bakery in Rock Island.

At 75, Simmons is semi-retired and again shutting down the shop at 513 20th St. until October. \"It's a little hot in here in the summer,\" said Simmons, who has run the bakery for 51 years.

With a handwritten sign in the window, customers were alerted to get their orders in early \u2014 he and his crew temporarily closed\u00a0Saturday. No more fresh donuts, pastries, pies and breads for a few months.

But Simmons promises to be back, maybe in October \"unless I can find someone to buy the place. But I haven't pushed it.\"

The half-year schedule began a few years back after Simmons beat a bout of cancer and was told he needed physical therapy. \"I decided I might as well go back to work.\"

But he also decided \"it was nice to be off four or five months.\"\u00a0

So the baking is taking a break along with Simmons; his daughter, Amy Gillespie; his fianc\u00e9, Emma Fox; and his cousin, Jolinda Simmons.

Q-C shines through John Deere Classic

As he kicked off the 2017 John Deere Classic season, Deere & Co. CEO Sam Allen made it clear that John Deere is quite proud of the tournament, its association with the PGA Tour, and what the JDC has done for the equipment maker.\u00a0

But he was quick to tell reporters last week during Media Day at TPC Deere Run, Silvis, that the event is about the 1,700 volunteers who make it happen each year and about Birdies for Charity.\u00a0

There was a time when raising $1 million or $2 million for charity through the JDC was a successful year, he said.

But in the past five years, the Quad-Cities \"has really turned it up,\" Allen said. \"Last year to do $10 and a half million in a year when attendance was way down because of the rains... and then to blow it away a couple million more than the year before, that kind of just was the cherry on top of the frosting.\"

Deere has committed to be the JDC's title sponsor through 2023 and until then, Allen said the plan is to \"make each year better and better.\"

In doing so, he said that come 2023 there would be no question \"we're going to go ahead and re-up it because it means so much and because we're so successful.\" \u00a0

1. Developer guilty

Todd Raufeisen is facing time in federal prison after he pleaded guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court, Rock Island, to charges of wire fraud and money laundering. The longtime area developer is accused of defrauding 22 investors out of $1.7 million. Raufeisen ran into trouble with a variety of projects around the Quad-Cities in recent years, including failing to come up with financing for a major project in Bettendorf and for an office/restaurant building to replace the former Dock restaurant on Davenport's downtown riverfront. He will be sentenced in September.

2. Central opening

It's been a long time coming, but Davenport school officials showed off their most recent major project last week with a tour of the new performing arts center and pool at Davenport Central High School. The pool already has been in use, but now the state-of-the-art auditorium is ready for prime time, too. Total cost of the project was $28.5 million.

3. Veteran support

There hasn't been much action for years at Veterans Memorial Park in Davenport, but new leadership of a friends of the park group is stepping up fundraising and plans to improve and add to the memorial at the foot of Marquette Street on the riverfront. Bill Churchill, a Vietnam War veteran, is spearheading the effort, and help from Bush Construction is making a big difference. Reporter Devan Patel provided a rundown on Wednesday on the more recent efforts to provide a fitting venue to honor local veterans.

4. Back in flight

Lots of Quad-Citians love those winter sojourns to Florida, and that showed when reporter Jennifer DeWitt broke the news last week that Allegiant will bring back seasonal twice-weekly flights between the Quad-City International Airport and the Punta Gorda/Fort Myers area. Those flights will begin Dec. 15, and passengers can begin booking them. The thought of flying to Florida in winter brought a lot of visitors to our website last week.

5. New at the top

Kim Reynolds made her first visit to Davenport as Iowa governor on Friday, and she brought along her newly minted lieutenant governor, Adam Gregg. It was a whirlwind week for the leadership of the state. The U.S. Senate confirmed former Gov. Terry Branstad's nomination as ambassador to China on Monday. He resigned as governor Wednesday morning and was immediately sworn in as ambassador. Immediately following that, Lt. Gov. Reynolds was sworn in as governor, and on Thursday, Reynolds named Gregg to the No. 2 spot. Finally, the Reynolds-Gregg team flew around the state Friday to talk about their plans.

6. Fore!

The Arsenal Island Golf Course has been a Quad-City fixture since 1897, but it's suffering now with a significant decline in the number of rounds played on the iconic course. Sports reporter Don Doxsie says it's getting close to a \"use it or lose it\" moment; if rounds don't pick up, the U.S. Army might consider closing the course. Increased security restrictions implemented on Arsenal Island in December 2015 made getting on the military installation more difficult, and that's being blamed at least in part for the drop in use.

7. Chopping block

Speaking of Arsenal Island, the first budget released by President Donald Trump is raising some anxiety for the installation and the Quad-Cities. As part of the budget, the president is asking for another round of base closings, but not until 2021. The Arsenal, one of the area's largest employers, lost about 1,000 jobs in the 2005 base-closing process. There also are cuts proposed to agriculture programs, but the budget does include money to open the federal prison in Thomson, Illinois.

8. Disbarment

A decision to disbar Rock Island attorney Francis Joseph Coyle Jr. attracted attention to our website last week. Coyle was accused of misappropriating $100,000 he was supposed to be holding in escrow and falsely representing that he was still holding the funds in connection with a real estate transaction in 2011. The disbarment was announced Monday by the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission.

9. She's a survivor

Muscatine native Sarah Lacina has taken home the top prize on the reality TV show \"Survivor: Game Changers.\" The season finale in which she was crowned the winner was broadcast Wednesday night. Her victory earned her a $1 million prize. Lacina's day job is serving as a police officer in Cedar Rapids.

10. Hooping it up

\"It's a wild underground club,\" says Karah Rehnberg. She's talking about a group of people who have taken up hula hooping as a hobby and more. They attend events and concerts, and their routines help get people involved and on the dance floor. As entertainment reporter Amanda Hancock tells us, they have plans for upcoming concerts at the Redstone Room in Davenport and Codfish Hollow in Maquoketa, Iowa. Check it out.

The Mississippi River has risen above flood stage and is on its way to a crest of 17 feet later this week.

The National Weather Service flood warning continues for the Mississippi River at Rock Island Lock and Dam 15 until further notice.

Early this morning the river was at 15.2 feet and rising. Flood stage is 15 feet.

Minor flooding is occurring and moderate flooding is forecasted. The river is expected to rise to 17 feet Wednesday morning then begin falling.

At 17 feet water is over most of Davenport's LeClaire Park and lower parking lots.

Former Gov. Terry Branstad reported at least $1 million in assets \u2014 and possibly as much as $3.3 million \u2014 as part of a federal financial disclosure report required for his application to be U.S. ambassador to China.

Branstad stepped down as Iowa\u2019s longest-serving governor Wednesday before taking the oath as U.S. ambassador.

Included among more than 50 companies in which Branstad owns stock are 14 he says he will divest to avoid a potential conflict of interest in China.

\u201cI am committed to the highest standards of ethical conduct for government officials,\u201d Branstad wrote in a March 23 letter to the U.S. State Department.

The two-page letter with the subject line \u201cEthics Undertakings\u201d was one of two documents The Gazette obtained last week through the federal Freedom of Information Act. The other was Branstad\u2019s Public Financial Disclosure Report, filed with the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, which outlines the former governor\u2019s assets, including investments, savings accounts, real estate holdings and liabilities.

The disclosure is required of people seeking senior level positions in the U.S. government.

\u201cYou can\u2019t be in a position to benefit from your ambassadorship,\u201d said Ron McMullen, a career diplomat who served as U.S. ambassador to Eritrea from 2007 to 2010. McMullen is now the University of Iowa\u2019s ambassador-in-residence, teaching courses on comparative politics, diplomacy and international politics.

\u201cThe rule of thumb is an ambassador can\u2019t actively be managing investments that happen to deal with the country to which he or she is ambassador to,\u201d he said. \u201cSo if an asset is doing business with China or investing in China, and you\u2019re ambassador to China, you can\u2019t actively manage that, so it has to be put in a trust or you have to divest in it.\u201d

Avoiding conflicts

Branstad\u2019s promise to sell stock in 14 companies, including Apple, PayPal, Deere and Co. and Walmart, within 90 days of confirmation came because those companies \u201chave been deemed to present a significant risk of a conflict of interest,\u201d according to a State Department response to The Gazette.

\u201cThe assets that Ambassador Branstad is retaining have either been deemed not to present a significant risk of a conflict of interest at this time, or are currently subject to a de minimus exemption under the ethics regulations,\u201d the agency reported, referring to exemptions for small investments.

Deere and Co., based in Moline, has extensive manufacturing operations in China as well as other countries. Ken Golden, global public relations director for the company, said in March he was pleased to see Branstad considered as ambassador because Branstad knows agriculture and has been an advocate for international trade.

Branstad says in the March 23 letter he will have a \u201ccovered relationship\u201d with the state of Iowa for one year, which means he\u2019ll need to seek specific permission to participate in any matters involving Iowa and China. The State Department said this is \u201cstandard language\u201d for someone who has previously served as a state governor.

\u201cAmbassador Branstad will receive ongoing guidance about the matters that federal ethics law permit him to participate in,\u201d the agency said.

Financial disclosure

Branstad\u2019s financial disclosure report, at eight pages, is significantly less complicated than the 104-page report filed by Donald Trump last year when he was running for president. The reports provide some idea of a senior government official\u2019s assets, but because each asset is listed with a value range, the grand total also has a wide range.

For example, the value of Branstad\u2019s stock in Casey\u2019s General Stores, headquartered in Ankeny, is listed as $15,001 to $50,000. His total assets are valued at as little as $1.08 million and as much as $3.33 million, according to the report.

Branstad lists 55 companies in which he owns stock, with the total value of those investments between $114,000 and $885,000.

The companies include automotive (Axalta Coating Systems and Advance Auto Parts), medical (Diplomat Pharmacy, GlaxoSmithKline and Allscripts Healthcare Solutions), energy (Whiting Petroleum, TransCanada and Kinder Morgan) and financial (Wells Fargo and Co., West Bancorporation and Comerica Inc.).

Chris Branstad, Branstad\u2019s wife, has investments in Berkshire Hathaway ($1,001 to $15,000) and Diplomat Pharmacy ($1,001 to $15,000), the report states.

Real estate

While Trump\u2019s real estate holdings include Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan and Mar-a-Lago golf resort in Palm Beach, Florida, Branstad\u2019s commercial real estate is in places such as Lake Mills, a northern Iowa town of 2,000 where Branstad operated a law office and served as state representative before becoming lieutenant governor in 1979.

Branstad also owns parcels in Lake Park, Sibley, Seymore, Olin, LeClaire, Joice, Dunlap, Bode, Exira, Guttenberg, Lohrville, Manly, North English and Packwood. This land or property is worth between $960,015 and $2.35 million, the report states.

Also listed among Branstad\u2019s assets is an annual salary of $150,000. Branstad\u2019s official salary as governor was $130,000 in fiscal 2016, but it\u2019s possible he was including travel and subsistence \u2014 an additional $14,282 last year. He doesn\u2019t give the value of his state of Iowa defined benefit plan but said it yields about $2,900 per month in retirement payments.

For liabilities, Branstad listed two mortgages, one for a personal residence valued at $100,001 to $250,000 and one for a rental property valued at $50,001 to $100,000.

\u2018Lengthy process\u2019

The Gazette requested from the State Department and the Office of Government Ethics all of Branstad\u2019s application materials. The ethics office responded March 23 saying it was withholding 53 pages of notes and emails between the office and the State Department as \u201cpredecisional deliberative process material,\u201d which is exempt from FOIA.

\u201cThe disclosure ... would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy,\u201d the ethics office said in the letter.

McMullen, a Northwood, Iowa, native who has lived in, worked in or traveled to 105 countries, remembers filling out his financial disclosure report to be considered as a foreign ambassador.

\u201cIt\u2019s a very lengthy process,\u201d he said. \u201cIt\u2019s like filing a tax return and having it audited twice.\u201d

They're over the hump.\u00a0

A group raising\u00a0money to replace the eroded marble\u00a0statue atop the\u00a0Rock Island County\u00a0Civil War Soldiers' Monument\u00a0recently received an $8,000 donation from the Moline Foundation. That gives them the $40,000 they estimate will be needed to\u00a0replicate it in bronze.

\"But there's a lot of other work that still needs to be done,\" Capt. Ron Erickson, of the county Sheriff's Office, said.

The monument\u00a0stands at the\u00a0northeast corner of the\u00a0courthouse, fronting 15th Street in downtown Rock Island.

The\u00a0sheriff's office \u2014 in charge of county buildings and grounds \u2014 began working on the monument in October 2014. That's when someone walking by the courthouse noticed that the\u00a0statue of a Civil War infantryman atop the monument was\u00a0nearly half off its base, threatening to fall.\u00a0

The statue was quickly taken down and, within a few weeks, moved into a storage\u00a0building for safe keeping, where it remains today.

Erickson then began\u00a0researching what could be done to fix or replace the deteriorated monument.\u00a0The project has several pieces in addition to the statue:

\u2022\u00a0Replicate in bronze the names of the\u00a0354 Rock Island County men who died in the Civil War. The names are inscribed on the existing base, but many are no longer legible.

\u2022\u00a0Refurbish\u00a0a rusting copy of the Gettsyburg Address that sits on a crumbling concrete base a few feet from the memorial.

\u2022 Determine\u00a0whether cracks on the base of the monument are superficial or deep and fix them, regardless.

\u2022 Place the\u00a0bronze soldier on\u00a0top of the existing marble monument or give him a new\u00a0base at ground level. The placement decision has not been made yet, although\u00a0Erickson favors putting it\u00a0up high, staying\u00a0true to the original design and keeping it out of reach of vandals.

The fundraising campaign was organized by\u00a0a group that includes members of the sheriff's office, the\u00a0Quad-City Civil War Roundtable, a study group, and the Rock Island Historical Society. Money was\u00a0collected\u00a0under the tax-exempt, 501(c)3 status of the society, treasurer Doug Lambert said.

Erickson hopes that a bid for the statue can be let by July, with completion in six months, and\u00a0the rest of the\u00a0work finished in\u00a0time for the 150th\u00a0anniversary of the monument's original unveiling, which would be in April 2019.

Artists who already have\u00a0expressed interest in casting the new statue are David Seagraves,\u00a0Elizabeth, Illinois; Ted McElhiney,\u00a0LeClaire; John Ketner,\u00a0Moline; and\u00a0Chris Bennett, Keosauqua, Iowa.

The committee decided to make\u00a0a\u00a0new statue\u00a0rather than try to restore the original because\u00a0in consulting with artists, engineers, historians and people in other communities where Civil War statues have deteriorated, they realized restoration\u00a0would\u00a0not be a good idea, even if it were possible, Erickson said.

The work would look \"tacked on,\" it would mask the work of the artist, and it would\u00a0not wear any better than the original, because marble is not durable outdoors.

The statue was sculpted by an artist of note \u2014 Leonard Volk, a one-time Rock Island resident who became a founder of the Chicago Academy of Design and one of two artists who created a mask of Abraham Lincoln when he was still living, according to John Hoffman, manuscript curator and librarian of Illinois history and Lincoln collections at the University of Illinois.\u00a0

The\u00a0statue likely will be displayed somewhere indoors, such as the courthouse or the Rock Island Historical Society building, Erickson said.

In addition to the\u00a0Moline Foundation donation, money for the project has been raised in a variety of ways, including through outright donations,\u00a0the \"adoptions\" of soldiers whose names are on the monument, a gift of $5,000 from the\u00a0village\u00a0of Carbon Cliff, two gun raffles and a car wash.

For the men who died \u2014 men who were raised in Rock Island County, moved here or had family here \u2014 this is the only memorial they have, Erickson said. Except for perhaps 10\u00a0soldiers whose bodies were brought back\u00a0for burial, the rest\u00a0were buried in the faraway fields where they died from battle wounds or disease.

Overall, slightly more than\u00a02,400 men from the county served in the war, said Doug Delaney, of the restoration project.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) \u2014 Des Moines' Blank Park Zoo has seen a spate of new births in the past month.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/2qudHsi ) that the zoo's south-side wildlife park has recently welcomed four new babies, including a Bactrian camel named Tootsie, an addax named Moana, and two common elands named Cotton and Indigo.

The zoo is also awaiting the emergence of two recently-born wallaby joeys from their mother's pouch.

Spokesman Ryan Bickel says the additions bring the zoo's total large mammal births over the past year to 11 \u2014 most the zoo has experienced in at least a decade.

Bickel says a penguin and several trumpeter swan eggs are also expected to hatch soon.

Dawn Erin went nearly 20 years without health insurance before the Affordable Care Act, bouncing between free clinics for frequent and painful bladder infections.

The liver-destroying disease hepatitis C made her ineligible for coverage until President Barack Obama's law barred insurers from denying people with a medical condition. She has since seen a specialist who helped get her bladder infections under control, and her insurance covered about $70,000 in prescription drugs to treat hepatitis C.

\"I don't want to go back to the old way of doing things, worrying if I'm going to have the money to get my bladder infection treated,\" said the 46-year-old self-employed massage therapist from Austin, Texas.

Erin was among more than 20 million people in the United States who gained coverage under the health overhaul, which has pushed uninsured rates to historic lows over the past few years. The law also aims to improve health by getting the poor and newly insured back into regular care and away from sporadic clinic visits or expensive options such as emergency rooms.

Republican efforts to replace the law are expected to increase the number of uninsured and may derail the steady push to bring people back into the health care system, which many doctors and health policy researchers see as essential to reducing some costs and improving quality of life.

It seems simple to connect patients with a primary care doctor for preventive care such as flu shots or regular monitoring of diabetes and other chronic conditions, to prevent future expensive health costs. But that often means overcoming problems that include making it to the doctor, a mistrust of the health care system or language barriers just to get patients into the waiting room.

Experts say they're concerned about the number of uninsured possibly swelling again just as signs of progress are seen.

\"The public shouldn't think magically that this is something that's going to turn on a dime because you've just given an adult who's spent 38 years without insurance (coverage) for the first time,\" said Dr. Jay Shannon, CEO of Chicago's Cook County Health & Hospitals System.

The GOP health plan that passed the House this month proposes cuts to the state-federal Medicaid program that covers the poor. That includes ending extra federal payments to 31 states that expanded Medicaid to cover more people. The measure would water down subsidies that have helped people buy people buy coverage on insurance exchanges.

A recent projection from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated the House bill would result in 23 million additional people going without insurance in 2026.

Medicaid's expansion boosted the bottom line \u2014 and number of insured patients \u2014 at Cook County Health & Hospitals System, one of the nation's largest public health systems. In response, it has created teams of doctors, nurses and other medical staff to guide new Medicaid patients through the maze of primary care and connect them with specialists too.

The hospital system has seen a drop in emergency department visits tied to chronic illnesses like high blood pressure, diabetes or asthma since the ACA expanded coverage while overall visit levels have stayed the same.

Primary care practices around the United States are seeing an uptick in returning patients. About 40 percent of the 190,000 Medicaid patients new to practices monitored by the technology firm athenahealth have returned for four or more visits in 18 months after making an initial trip in 2014 or the first half of 2015.

Repeat visits are critical for doctors working with patients to better monitor chronic conditions or improve their overall health. By building a relationship, a doctor can monitor a diet plan or quickly spot changes in things such as blood pressure that may be a sign of an underlying problem.

\"That's the biggest challenge in getting people to engage in care, is that building of trust,\" said Laurie Martin, a senior policy researcher at RAND Corp.

Insurers such as Medicaid specialist Molina Healthcare will call new customers to help them pick a primary care doctor for an initial visit. The insurer also works with patients to make sure they have transportation and reminds them of follow-up appointments or the need for screenings such as mammograms.

Others are working through insurance to draw into the health care system patients who don't speak English. Cover Missouri and International Institute provide free consultations in several languages to help people feel comfortable using their coverage. They've printed a fact sheet in 11 languages to walk consumers through basics like how to read an insurance card.

Even with insurance, many patients still face challenges accessing care. Some have to travel long distances to see a doctor, a big barrier if they don't have a car. People with low incomes also frequently change phone numbers, which makes it hard for a doctor's office to stay in touch, said Allison Madden, assistant vice president of care management at Community Health of South Florida.

The clinic helped Fay Laffitte receive regular diabetes care after she went uninsured for five years. The home health aide from Homestead, Florida, didn't have coverage through work and frequently skipped doctor appointments because she couldn't afford them. By the time the 57-year-old got insurance with the help of a subsidy, her blood sugar was out of control and she had to go on insulin.

She takes it twice a day and sees her doctor monthly to keep her disease in check. Laffitte says knowing she has the insurance is like breathing a sigh of relief.

\"I don't have to worry about my health,\" she said. \"I can afford to get the medicine and take it and be all right.\"

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) \u2014 As a onetime county office worker in rural Iowa, Republican Kim Reynolds insists she never saw herself running for office, much less serving as governor.

But after a mid-career political surge and the appointment of mentor Terry Branstad as U.S. ambassador to China, the former legislator and lieutenant governor acknowledges growing more comfortable with her ascent Wednesday to the state's top job.

In fact, she was even somewhat envious watching Branstad sign landmark legislation in the just-ended session, the first in nearly 20 years in which Republicans controlled the House, Senate and governor's office.

\"I was kind of hoping, as we watched the bills go back and forth, that \u2014 gosh \u2014 I'd really like to sign that one,\" Reynolds recently told a Republican county dinner in western Iowa.

The 57-year-old former Clarke County treasurer has come full circle, having stood by Branstad for six years, and now in the role of his chosen successor, with the groundwork in place to run for the office herself next year.

Reynolds was sworn in Wednesday, two days after Branstad was confirmed by the Senate for the ambassadorship.

With guidance from the nation's longest-serving governor, she has established a political base and feverishly studied policy in preparation for the role she would have never seen coming, but now embraces.

\"I'm proud of what we've been able to do over these last six years,\" Reynolds told about 100 Pottawattamie County GOP activists during a recent event. \"I didn't set out to run for office; I actually never thought I would.\"

That was after Reynolds left college without a degree; marrying, raising three daughters and, only then, looking to a career of her own.

Reynolds, however, says she quickly saw herself as up to the task of governor, after rising over the past 10 years from Clarke County treasurer, to state senator to one office away from the governorship in the Iowa Capitol.

\"I was six months on the job when the governor turned to me,\" she recalled in an Associated Press interview last week. It was 2011 and western Iowa had been hit with disastrous flooding as the divided Legislature was deadlocked in budget talks. Branstad was scheduled to lead a trade mission to China and South Korea.

\"I need you to do it,\" she recalled Branstad telling her.

If that newfound goal was to be governor, she also squeezed in time to finish her undergraduate degree. In December, Reynolds \u2014 in black gown and mortar board \u2014 stood with hundreds of graduates younger than her own children in Iowa State University's Hilton Coliseum to receive her diploma for a bachelor's degree in liberal arts.

Fueled by what advisers call an anxiousness to prove her intellectual chops, Reynolds brings the same intensity to policy research.

As lieutenant governor, she has demanded extensive briefing material, complaining at times of being ill-prepped for public events.

\"Kim's a studier and a worrier,\" said Doug Gross, a former adviser to Branstad and past GOP nominee for governor.

She took office with a robust $1 million in her campaign account, a big head start on lesser-known Republican primary prospect Ron Corbett, the mayor of Cedar Rapids, as well as the half-dozen Democrats weighing the race. Reynolds also is working with Something Else Strategies, the firm that created Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst's memorable 2014 campaign ads.

Reynolds has also had a taste of the political limelight.

In 2012, as secretary of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, she presided over Mitt Romney's presidential nomination.

She also stood with countless GOP presidential hopefuls as a host of her state's presidential caucuses. National GOP leaders also sought her for the 2014 Senate race.

Former Iowa Republican Chairman Matt Strawn said Reynolds made it clear to him and others she had her eyes on becoming governor.

\"I was left with the unmistakable impression that she would run,\" Strawn said of a lunch with Reynolds a year ago in Des Moines. \"It was done very artfully. But, make no mistake. She was interested, if the situation arose.\"

Still, she has kept in touch with key GOP leaders around the state.

Reynolds, for instance, has visited bellwether Cedar County in eastern Iowa to promote business openings, tour storm damage or headline county GOP dinners, as she did two years ago, county GOP chairwoman Dawn Smith said.

\"Kim has been here quite a few times. She really connects with the counties,\" Smith said.

Reynolds rushed to finish her remarks at the Pottawattamie County picnic, as a steady rain pelted the roof of the cold, metal building where they gathered.

Even curtailed, such appearances demonstrate what adviser Jeff Boeyink calls Reynolds' political work ethic.

\"Lots of guest shots on FOX News? They're fine,\" said Boeyink, a former Branstad chief of staff. \"But I'd rather have her doing the Muscatine County Republican dinner or the Davenport Rotary.\"

URBANA, Ill. (AP) \u2014 University of Illinois officials say free speech and campus culture will be the focus of the school trustees' annual retreat this summer.

The plans come amid controversial speakers facing backlashes at campuses nationwide, The News-Gazette reported (http://bit.ly/2rZR0Ov ).

The university's Carl Woese Institute for Genomic Biology recently dropped plans to have Nobel Laureate James Watson, who co-discovered the structure of DNA, lead a discussion at the school because of his views on race and intelligence.

\"This is an icon of science who is close to being 90 years old who is talking about a scientific presentation,\" said the university's president Tim Killeen.

But organizers of the discussion felt it would have been difficult to handle due to the controversy surrounding Watson's views.

\"I think you have to recognize that we're a university for all,\" Killeen said. \"But I can respect some of the rationale that was brought to the table.\"

Other incidents at campuses include protesters shouting at political speakers or preventing them from appearing.

Killeen said the university has in recent months been analyzing ways to reduce potential risk, including student safety, free speech and assembly.

He said he's invited national speakers to the trustees' retreat to address topics including campus culture and freedom of expression.

\"We want an authentic University of Illinois voice in all of the above,\" he said.

The trustees' retreat is scheduled for July.

Former Gov. Terry Branstad reported at least $1 million in assets \u2014 and possibly as much as $3.3 million \u2014 as part of a federal financial disclosure report required for his application to be U.S. ambassador to China.

Branstad stepped down as Iowa\u2019s longest-serving governor Wednesday before taking the oath as U.S. ambassador.

Included among more than 50 companies in which Branstad owns stock are 14 he says he will divest to avoid a potential conflict of interest in China.

\u201cI am committed to the highest standards of ethical conduct for government officials,\u201d Branstad wrote in a March 23 letter to the U.S. State Department.

The two-page letter with the subject line \u201cEthics Undertakings\u201d was one of two documents The Gazette obtained last week through the federal Freedom of Information Act. The other was Branstad\u2019s Public Financial Disclosure Report, filed with the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, which outlines the former governor\u2019s assets, including investments, savings accounts, real estate holdings and liabilities.

The disclosure is required of people seeking senior level positions in the U.S. government.

\u201cYou can\u2019t be in a position to benefit from your ambassadorship,\u201d said Ron McMullen, a career diplomat who served as U.S. ambassador to Eritrea from 2007 to 2010. McMullen is now the University of Iowa\u2019s ambassador-in-residence, teaching courses on comparative politics, diplomacy and international politics.

\u201cThe rule of thumb is an ambassador can\u2019t actively be managing investments that happen to deal with the country to which he or she is ambassador to,\u201d he said. \u201cSo if an asset is doing business with China or investing in China, and you\u2019re ambassador to China, you can\u2019t actively manage that, so it has to be put in a trust or you have to divest in it.\u201d

Avoiding conflicts

Branstad\u2019s promise to sell stock in 14 companies, including Apple, PayPal, Deere and Co. and Walmart, within 90 days of confirmation came because those companies \u201chave been deemed to present a significant risk of a conflict of interest,\u201d according to a State Department response to The Gazette.

\u201cThe assets that Ambassador Branstad is retaining have either been deemed not to present a significant risk of a conflict of interest at this time, or are currently subject to a de minimus exemption under the ethics regulations,\u201d the agency reported, referring to exemptions for small investments.

Deere and Co., based in Moline, has extensive manufacturing operations in China as well as other countries. Ken Golden, global public relations director for the company, said in March he was pleased to see Branstad considered as ambassador because Branstad knows agriculture and has been an advocate for international trade.

Branstad says in the March 23 letter he will have a \u201ccovered relationship\u201d with the state of Iowa for one year, which means he\u2019ll need to seek specific permission to participate in any matters involving Iowa and China. The State Department said this is \u201cstandard language\u201d for someone who has previously served as a state governor.

\u201cAmbassador Branstad will receive ongoing guidance about the matters that federal ethics law permit him to participate in,\u201d the agency said.

Financial disclosure

Branstad\u2019s financial disclosure report, at eight pages, is significantly less complicated than the 104-page report filed by Donald Trump last year when he was running for president. The reports provide some idea of a senior government official\u2019s assets, but because each asset is listed with a value range, the grand total also has a wide range.

For example, the value of Branstad\u2019s stock in Casey\u2019s General Stores, headquartered in Ankeny, is listed as $15,001 to $50,000. His total assets are valued at as little as $1.08 million and as much as $3.33 million, according to the report.

Branstad lists 55 companies in which he owns stock, with the total value of those investments between $114,000 and $885,000.

The companies include automotive (Axalta Coating Systems and Advance Auto Parts), medical (Diplomat Pharmacy, GlaxoSmithKline and Allscripts Healthcare Solutions), energy (Whiting Petroleum, TransCanada and Kinder Morgan) and financial (Wells Fargo and Co., West Bancorporation and Comerica Inc.).

Chris Branstad, Branstad\u2019s wife, has investments in Berkshire Hathaway ($1,001 to $15,000) and Diplomat Pharmacy ($1,001 to $15,000), the report states.

Real estate

While Trump\u2019s real estate holdings include Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan and Mar-a-Lago golf resort in Palm Beach, Florida, Branstad\u2019s commercial real estate is in places such as Lake Mills, a northern Iowa town of 2,000 where Branstad operated a law office and served as state representative before becoming lieutenant governor in 1979.

Branstad also owns parcels in Lake Park, Sibley, Seymore, Olin, LeClaire, Joice, Dunlap, Bode, Exira, Guttenberg, Lohrville, Manly, North English and Packwood. This land or property is worth between $960,015 and $2.35 million, the report states.

Also listed among Branstad\u2019s assets is an annual salary of $150,000. Branstad\u2019s official salary as governor was $130,000 in fiscal 2016, but it\u2019s possible he was including travel and subsistence \u2014 an additional $14,282 last year. He doesn\u2019t give the value of his state of Iowa defined benefit plan but said it yields about $2,900 per month in retirement payments.

For liabilities, Branstad listed two mortgages, one for a personal residence valued at $100,001 to $250,000 and one for a rental property valued at $50,001 to $100,000.

\u2018Lengthy process\u2019

The Gazette requested from the State Department and the Office of Government Ethics all of Branstad\u2019s application materials. The ethics office responded March 23 saying it was withholding 53 pages of notes and emails between the office and the State Department as \u201cpredecisional deliberative process material,\u201d which is exempt from FOIA.

\u201cThe disclosure ... would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy,\u201d the ethics office said in the letter.

McMullen, a Northwood, Iowa, native who has lived in, worked in or traveled to 105 countries, remembers filling out his financial disclosure report to be considered as a foreign ambassador.

\u201cIt\u2019s a very lengthy process,\u201d he said. \u201cIt\u2019s like filing a tax return and having it audited twice.\u201d

CHICAGO (AP) \u2014 The Joliet office of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services offered gift cards to workers closing the most cases just months before a missing 1-year-old girl's body was found under a couch in a home, a report Saturday said.

The Chicago Tribune (http://trib.in/2qq5JBl ) reported the existence of the contest a day after the department released a report reviewing its actions leading up to the death of 1-year-old Semaj Crosby. The toddler was found dead April 26 in a Joliet Township home shortly after DCFS closed an investigation into whether she was being neglected.

The contest that began in January awarded $100 gift cards to the two workers who closed the most cases within a month, the report said. The third place winner received a $50 gift card.

It's unclear whether any of the winners were involved in DCFS inquiries at Semaj's home.

DCFS Director George Sheldon said the contest was improper.

\"Offering financial incentives like that I think is an inappropriate step,\" Sheldon said. \"I think the intentions were good, but the way they handled it wasn't.\"

State Rep. Mary Flowers, a Chicago Democrat who has chaired a recent legislative hearing on DCFS investigations, called the contest \"unethical.\" She called for the agency's inspector general to conduct an immediate investigation into the contest, including the children and families who were affected by cases that may have been closed prematurely.

\"Children's lives could have been put at risk because of this bad behavior,\" Flowers said. \"This is not a game.\"

The DCFS report released Friday said Semaj's family came to DCFS attention in September 2016. The case files involved Crosby, her parents, an aunt and three siblings. The report says that while allegations of inadequate supervision and drug use in the home were unfounded, an intact family case was opened. The action was taken to provide the family with \"housing support and parenting assistance.\"

Sheldon said he does not believe the push to close cases quickly played a role in Semaj's case but said he understands why people \"may have that perception.\"

\"We've got to aggressively pursue these cases with a sense of urgency, but I want to make sure that message isn't misinterpreted to cut corners,\" Sheldon said.

Senior Deputy Director Neil Skene said DCFS is reviewing whether to discipline any supervisors for the contest. The agency is preparing a notification to all staff warning against such incentives, he said.
