Trump selects Gov. Branstad as China ambassador

\"Xi

Xi Jinping, then China's vice president, greets Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, and his wife, Chris, on Feb. 15, 2012, in Muscatine.

Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad has accepted an offer to serve as U.S. Ambassador to China under President-elect Donald Trump. A formal announcement is planned for Thursday.

Since Trump\u2019s Nov. 8 election victory, political observers have speculated Trump would offer the role of Chinese ambassador to Branstad, who has a long professional relationship with China President Xi Jinping. Read more.

China job would mean Iowa's first female governor

\"Gov.

Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds.\u00a0

The departure of the nation's longest-serving governor to accept an appointment as U.S. ambassador to China means Iowa would be led by its first female governor.

An aide to President-elect Donald Trump confirmed on Wednesday that Trump has offered to nominate Republican Gov. Terry Branstad for the ambassadorship, and that the governor is expected to accept.

If Branstad accepts and is confirmed by the Senate, Republican Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds would become Iowa's governor. She would hold the position until Branstad's term ends in January 2019, and she could run for governor in 2018.

The 57-year-old Reynolds was a first-term state senator when Branstad chose her to run for election as his lieutenant governor.

Reynolds has focused on economic development and education during her six years as lieutenant governor.

Man's controversial 'Zombie Nativity' vandalized

\"zombie
zombie nativity

A suburban Cincinnati man says someone vandalized the \"Zombie Nativity\" scene he puts up annually, beheading the ghoulish-looking Mary figure and flipping the greenish baby Jesus into the yard.

Jasen Dixon says someone damaged the handmade scene early Tuesday at his home in Sycamore Township, northeast of Cincinnati. He has since repaired the scene and says he'll keep rebuilding it if necessary.

Dixon says it's the first time someone has intentionally damaged the structure since he started the holiday display in 2014.

But it's been a topic of controversy previously. The township took Dixon to court last year for alleged zoning violations because of the structure over the nontraditional nativity scene, but it eventually dropped the case.

Dixon's attorney argued the township was trying to suppress his freedoms.

Arrest reports put a different 'Kinnick experience' on display

\"Kinnick

Police officers and fans outside Kinnick Stadium before the Hawkeye football season opener.

For fans attending Iowa football games in 2016, the \u201cKinnick experience\u2019\u2019 offered a variety of memories.

There was the drama of a last-second win over second-ranked Michigan and the heartbreak of a similar defeat to North Dakota State.

There was the frustration of losses to Northwestern and Wisconsin and celebration because of dominating performances in lopsided victories over Iowa State and Nebraska.

And along the way, the \"Kinnick experience\" took on an entirely different meaning for some fans. In the spirit of the season, we share the experiences of some at Hawkeye home games this season in this special edition of the Hawkeye 10@10. Read more.

For now, the Davenport Community School District continues on a path to clean energy for 30 buildings in an area that includes the city as well as Blue Grass, Buffalo and Walcott.

Calling it an opportunity to do something that's both good for the environment and good for the district's budget, Davenport Superintendent Art Tate gave his support to the plan, termed \"aggressive\" by one expert.

In addition, Tate said, it would set Davenport apart in Iowa as an \"outstanding\" example of good stewardship.

School Board members were much more reserved during a Monday meeting. They did, in the end, voice support for a \"Letter of Intent\" for the program that's been considered for the past year.

The board is considering the plan that would add large solar arrays to playground areas and school roofs. Costs to the district are mainly borne by the company proposing the contract: EPo Energy of Columbus Junction, Iowa. The pact is expected to continue for 20 years.

On one hand, board members are looking at estimated savings of more than $300,000 per year, owning the solar system after 20 years and realizing $1.9 million in estimated energy savings in the 21st year.

The district spends nearly $1.4 million on energy costs annually with MidAmerican Energy Co. Three representatives of the company attended the meeting on Monday.

\"We'll be your partner, no matter what you do,\" Chuck Rea told board members. Rea is director of regulatory strategic analysis for the energy company.

Rea described the solar contract as \"aggressive\" and said wind is more common as an alternative energy source, especially in rural areas of Iowa. He is not aware of any school district that has built solar to the extent proposed in Davenport.

That said, all sorts of alternative energy sources are getting a close look by public groups, as well as other customers, such as farmers. Many use solar arrays to power confined animal feeding operations, for example.

Board member Julie DeSalvo continued to raise the most questions on the program. DeSalvo, who works for MidAmerican, has reservations on the document and worries about implications for the district.

She and board member Jamie Snyder voiced concerns on the large solar arrays that could be built on school roofs and in areas outside some of the district's buildings.

DeSalvo also had several technical questions for Mike Maloney, the district's director of operations who brought the proposal at the board's request.

The size of the EPo Energy company worried board member Richard Clewell, who noted Davenport would be, by far, the biggest customer in the solar program.

The next step, the board decided, is to bring in views from the district's attorney, Richard Davidson, and Jon Muller with the Iowa School Finance Information Services. Muller has a strong background in school energy issues.

The topic will be on the agenda at the board's meeting set for Monday, Dec. 12.

For fans attending Iowa football games in 2016, the \u201cKinnick experience\u2019\u2019 offered a variety of memories.

There was the drama of a last-second win over second-ranked Michigan and the heartbreak of a similar defeat to North Dakota State.

There was the frustration of losses to Northwestern and Wisconsin and celebration because of dominating performances in lopsided victories over Iowa State and Nebraska.

And along the way, the \"Kinnick experience\" took on an entirely different meaning for some fans. In the spirit of the season, we share the experiences of some at Hawkeye home games this season in this special edition of the Hawkeye 10@10.

For the third straight year, breaking down the best of the best from the arrest reports from University of Iowa police at Iowa home games this season, here is today\u2019s Hawkeye 10@10:

1. Dealing with the public can be a chore at times, just ask the 40-year-old Iowa City man who was charged with public intoxication while working concessions at Kinnick Stadium at the Iowa-North Dakota State game.

Medical crews were summoned after the man fell twice in the concession stand where he was working and police were eventually called after it was determined the man appeared to be intoxicated.

According to the police report, he \u201cadmitted to drinking two beers before work, had signs of intoxication and unsteady balance.\u2019\u2019

He was arrested after tests revealed he had a .169 blood alcohol content on a preliminary test.

2. Some fans just can\u2019t get close enough to the action.

A 20-year old from Las Vegas was arrested about 10 minutes before the Iowa-Michigan game kicked off, found on the sideline without a credential.

When asked about it, the arrest report indicates he produced a general admission ticket.

He was given a ticket for public intoxication after officers detected slurred speech and bloodshot eyes and stadium security informed police that the man had downed a can of beer earlier.

3. As if being in Kinnick wasn\u2019t good enough, at least two fans who were taken to the holding cell at Kinnick this season didn\u2019t seem to know where they were at or what day of the week it was.

A 19-year old man from Blue Earth, Minnesota, found passed out on the stadium concourse at the season-opening game against Miami (Ohio) told officers it was \u201cTuesday\u2019\u2019 shortly before he blew a .214 in a blood alcohol content test.

Two months later at the Michigan game, a 35-year old woman from Ankeny according to reports had slurred speech and spoke in incoherent sentences.

Before registering a .225 BAC, she went on to tell officers she \u201cbelieved she was in Ames at the Iowa State versus Arizona football game.\u2019\u2019

Neither answer was correct.

Iowa State was playing at Kansas that day and the Cyclones haven\u2019t played Arizona in football since 1968. Both individuals were charged with public intoxication.

4. As inconsistent as Iowa was at times this season on offense and defense, there were probably days when coordinators Greg Davis and Phil Parker felt like they were banging their heads into a wall as the Hawkeyes toiled.

It turns out, they weren\u2019t alone.

An 18-year-old man from Iowa City was charged with public intoxication at the Iowa opener against Miami (Ohio) after he \u201cwas seen walking into walls at Kinnick Stadium.\u2019\u2019

Officers noted the man had an \u201codor of alcoholic beverage of his breath, slurred speech and did not know where he was at.\u2019\u2019 He blew a .193 BAC on a breath test.

5. It\u2019s always best to make certain your vehicle is in working order before traveling to the game.

A 29-year-old man from Lineville, Iowa, learned that the hard way after he was found lying underneath a Chevrolet Suburban in the stadium parking lot around halftime of the Iowa-Iowa State game.

Officers detected the odor of ingested alcohol and noted watery eyes and unsteady balance as they talked to the man who said he was \u201cchecking the hydraulic lines\u2019\u2019 of the Suburban.

6. Iowa\u2019s passing game has had better seasons and on the day when C.J. Beathard completed 10-of-15 passes to help the Hawkeyes handle Nebraska, he wasn\u2019t the only one throwing things around at Kinnick.

Three fans were charged with public intoxication that day including a 19-year old from Milan, Illinois, who according to the arrest report \u201cthrew a partially consumed beer into the crowd\u2019\u2019 while celebrating a touchdown.

When officers arrived, \u201che told them he probably would not have thrown the beer if he was sober\u2019\u2019 according the report.

Two other fans, a 23-year-old man from Iowa City and a 20-year-old man from Omaha, Nebraska, were charged as well, one for throwing a glass bottle and the other for striking another spectator with a water bottle.

The Iowa City man was charged after security found him \u201cpassed out sitting on a wall.\u2019\u2019 He told officers he had been drinking and \u201cmight have\u2019\u2019 thrown glass bottles.

7. Some people just don\u2019t know when it\u2019s time to leave.

Hoping the third time was the charm, a 27-year-old man from Woodward, Iowa, was charged with public intoxication at the Iowa-Iowa State game after he was kicked out of the stadium twice and attempted to re-enter a third time.

He was charged at that point, blowing a .205 on a preliminary blood test.

8. Rooting on the Hawkeyes can be a tiring experience.

An 18-year-old Iowa City man was charged with public intoxication shortly after the Iowa State game, found passed out on a Cambus shuttle.

He refused medical treatment and according to the incident report admitted drinking.

9. There are times when even a high five can turn out to be a bad thing.

For example, a 23-year-old man from Michigan was charged with public intoxication when, according to police reports, he \u201capproached a police officer to give him a high five\u2019\u2019 and the officer noticed the individual was \u201cobviously intoxicated\u2019\u2019 and instructed the man to \u201cbehave.\u2019\u2019

That didn\u2019t happen.

The report indicates the man disagreed with the officer\u2019s suggestion and after being given another chance to leave the stadium, he continued to argue and was ultimately charged.

10. Wrestling season at Iowa started in November, except for a 44-year-old man from Burt, Iowa who faced public intoxication charges at the Iowa-Iowa State game.

According to reports, the individual \u201cwas unstable on his feet, had troubles with his memory, had a strong odor of ingested alcohol and refused to go to first aid\u2019\u2019 because of an injury.

He then grabbed an officer on the shoulder and attempted to put the officer in a headlock.

A new Iowa Lottery game proved lucky for a Donahue man who collected $13,135.25 last week.

Joel Sandry won the prize in the $2 \"Cherry Twist Progressive\" game, which the lottery calls a \"scratchless scratch ticket\" game.

Joel Sandry, 41, of Donahue won a progressive jackpot of $13,135.25 in the lottery\u2019s new \u201cCherry Twist Progressive\u201d InstaPlay game, a $2 ticket.

Sandry bought the ticket the ticket on Nov. 23 at Expresslane, 3636 Hickory Grove Road, Davenport, and told family members who gathered the next day for Thanksgiving. He claimed his prize Friday at the lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids.

Sandry said he plans to use a portion of his lottery winnings to pay bills and save the rest.

He is the one of three lottery players to win the jackpot in the Cherry Twist Progressive game since the game debuted less than four weeks ago in Iowa.

InstaPlay combines features from instant-scratch and lotto games and gives players a new option with no numbers to pick, slips to fill out or drawings to wait for.

PORT BYRON\u00a0\u2014 Governor Bruce Rauner today signed Senate Bill 2814, the Future Energy Jobs bill, at a ceremony at Riverdale High School in Port Byron. The bipartisan legislation ensures the Quad Cities and Clinton power facilities remain open for another 10 years, saving thousands of good-paying jobs, while protecting working families, seniors, and thousands of other high-quality, good-paying jobs throughout the state by capping residential and business energy rates.

\u201cWhen this legislation was originally drafted, it was a Christmas tree loaded with special interest goodies that would have skyrocketed energy costs on families and businesses across the state,\u201d said Governor Rauner. \u201cSo we needed to find a balance, because I was unwilling to gamble with these communities, gamble with thousands of good paying jobs and gamble with our energy diversity. While this legislation isn\u2019t perfect, it allows us to protect jobs, ratepayers and taxpayers.\u201d

Before Governor Rauner\u2019s involvement, the legislature was poised to pass a massive bill with demand rates that could have skyrocketed energy bills for consumers. Governor Rauner laid out a pathway for a deal with his statement of principles which outlined any energy agreement should preserve jobs while protecting ratepayers and taxpayers.

\u201cThank you to those who negotiated in good faith to help make this bill a reality, and most importantly, thank you to the people of the Quad Cities and Clinton for your persistence, your patience, and hard work,\u201d Governor Rauner added.

Senate Bill 2814 ensures the Clinton and Quad Cities power facilities remain open for another 10 years. It contains a guaranteed cap that energy prices cannot increase more than 25 cents on the average residential home, and cannot increase more than 1.3 percent on commercial and industrial users over the next ten years. Rates are projected to decrease for the first several years due to the utilities being able to amortize energy efficiency. It also promotes unprecedented wind and solar expansion and preserves zero-emission generation, maintaining Illinois\u2019 status in leading the nation in zero-carbon generation.

\"I want to commend Sen. Anderson, as well as every local community leader, who worked diligently to educate both public and policy makers in the Capitol about the important contribution this facility makes to the local electrical supply grid, the regional economy and the state as a whole,\" said Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno (R-Lemont).

\u201cA joint study conducted by the Illinois Commerce Commission, the Illinois Power Agency, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity found that allowing several nuclear plants to prematurely close would cause our electric rates to increase by as much as 26% during stress events while grid reliability and capacity would significantly decrease. Closing the plants would also cost Illinois approximately 7,800 jobs and $1.8 billion in economic activity,\u201d said House Republican Leader Jim Durkin (R-Burr Ridge). \u201cAt the end of the day, had we failed to take action Illinois and Illinois consumers would suffer, and our electric rates would get dramatically out of hand.\u201d

\u201cGetting this bill passed, and saving jobs in the 36th Senate District has been one of my top priorities since taking office almost two years ago. This legislation saves our area from losing more than 800 direct jobs, 1,200 indirect jobs, and the largest property taxpayer in Rock Island County\u201d said State Sen. Neil Anderson (R-Rock Island). \u201cIt has been a long and difficult process to pass this legislation, but I\u2019m happy to be able to say we have been successful thanks to negotiations between stakeholders, the General Assembly, and the Governor\u2019s Office.\u201d

\u201cThis historic legislation will protect the state\u2019s primary source of clean energy while saving thousands of good jobs at our plants and providing millions of dollars in low-income assistance as well as job training in communities that need it most,\u201d said Chris Crane, president and CEO of Exelon. \u201cWe appreciate the leadership of Governor Rauner and legislative leaders for their roles in positioning Illinois to be a national leader in clean energy, job growth and economic development.\u201d

\u201cICC Staff, including policy analysts, accountants, economists, attorneys and engineers spent a great deal of time analyzing this bill,\u201d said Brien Sheahan, Chairman of the Illinois Commerce Commission. \u201cOur analysis shows the bill not only provides true caps to protect and limit customer rate impacts, but also includes several methods by which the ICC can enforce these caps. We are confident in our ability to oversee the charge this legislation creates for our agency.\u201d

\u201cThis is a big win for consumers,\u201d said Dave Kolata, Executive Director of the Citizens Utility Board (CUB). \u201cIt\u2019s Economics 101 \u2013 reducing demand for electricity also reduces the price. Illinois already enjoys some of the lowest rates in the nation because of energy efficiency, and this bill will drive further savings to homeowners.\u201d According to a CUB analysis, residential consumers will enjoy at least $4 billion in lower electric bills over the lifetime of the law, which also imposes a cap limiting bill increases to no more than 25-35 cents a month while savings from efficiency ramp up.

\u201cWith this legislation, Illinois will now be able to compete head-to-head with any other state in the nation in the race to build a renewable energy economy-- and win,\u201d said Lesley McCain, director of the Illinois Solar Energy Association (ISEA). \u201cThis bill will mean more jobs for solar installers, more savings for solar customers and environmental benefits for all of us who gain when cleaner sources of energy are used.\u201d

\u201cWith this legislation, Illinois will now be able to compete head-to-head for clean energy jobs with any other state in the nation -- and win,\u201d said Jennifer Walling, Executive Director of the Illinois Environmental Council (IEC), who added \u201cThe Future Energy Jobs bill fixes and improves the broken Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS), leading to $12 to $15 billion in private investment and the development of at least 3,000 megawatts of new solar and 1,300 MWs of wind energy\u2014 enough to power nearly 1 million homes.\"

Acclaimed baritone Mark Walters already has a full schedule in 2017 that includes a performance at Carnegie Hall in New York City on Jan. 15.

But this week, the 1983 graduate of Bettendorf High School is home, spending time catching up with his parents, Dennis and Ruth Ann Walters, and preparing for his featured role in this weekend\u2019s \u201cA Christmas Messiah\u201d at Augustana College\u2019s Centennial Hall.

It is the fifth time since 1995 that he is one of the acclaimed soloists hired for the annual event.

In an email interview last week before traveling to the Quad-Cities, Walters said, \u201cWhat makes this special for me is the huge connect that I have to this area and the chance to sing for my friends and family.

\u201cMy 98-year-old grandmother (Alberta Woods) has never seen me sing professionally, and I think she is going to come to a rehearsal this week. Plus, my mother will be singing in the chorus as she has every time I\u2019ve sung here,\u201d Walters wrote.

Ruth Ann Walters first sang in the chorus in 1961, and has done so numerous times since then. She is a cheerleader for the tradition of the \"Messiah\" at Augustana and its conductor, Dr. Jon Hurty.

Last week in their Bettendorf home, Dennis and Ruth Ann Walters expressed the pride and anticipation of any parent welcoming a child home for the holidays. They also have a son, David, owner of Comfort Construction in Bettendorf, and a daughter, Susan Beebe, an independent executive with Isagenix in Phoenix, Arizona.

The couple have traveled across the country and across the Atlantic Ocean to see their son perform in a variety of operas.

For the first few years Mark Walters was a Bettendorf High student, he was more known for his role on the Bulldogs football team.

But music always was a part of his life, whether it was singing in the children\u2019s choir at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Bettendorf or playing French horn with the Quad-City Youth Symphony and playing in the pit and singing on stage for the Quad-City Music Guild.

It was during his studies for a music education degree at the University of Northern Iowa, he said, that he \u201creally started to focus on developing my abilities specifically toward opera.\u201d He then received a master\u2019s degree in vocal performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music \u201cand for the past 26 years it has been a steady climb up the operatic ladder.\u201d

Opera News has described Walters as \u201ca force to be reckoned with.\u201d

But his praise is generous for the foundation he received in Bettendorf schools.

\u201cThe more I travel, the more I am thankful for the tremendous public school education and the musical opportunities that I received in Bettendorf,\u201d he wrote. \u201cThere are so many people to thank for my success as a professional opera singer \u2014 teachers, conductors, stage directors, fellow students and a supportive family.\u201d

He noted in particular the music faculty he worked with at the high school: Robert Gish, Ted Green, Vern Hockett, Lois Nichols and Deb Ketelsen-Ragan.

Though he\u2019s traveled around the world, Walters will do what many Quad-Citians do when they return to their hometown.

\u201cI make stops at some of my favorite food places, Whitey\u2019s Ice Cream, Harris Pizza, Happy Joe\u2019s Pizza, Godfather\u2019s Pizza \u2014 pizza seems to be a recurring theme, I just noticed!\u201d

Here's the latest from the city of Davenport on road work on Brady Street.

Work will continue for a few more weeks as crews wrap up sewer repair between River Drive and 6th Street. All lanes of Brady Street will be re-opened along this stretch until spring, when construction resumes. Work in the spring will last about two to three months.

Asphalt finish work continues between 6th and Lombard streets until the work is complete. The contractor anticipates the two right/east lanes will be complete by Monday, at which time work will flip to the left/west two lanes. Methods that protect the work, and ensure quality, will be used during those times when weather conditions warrant.

Volunteers are needed to help with the annual Christmas Bird Count, a nationwide tally of wild birds conducted in December and January under the auspices of the national Audubon Society.

The count, now in its 117th year, is the longest-standing barometer of overall bird population trends in the world as well as the longest-running citizen science survey.

Although it's called the Christmas count, work actually takes place between Dec. 14 and Jan. 5, with various communities having an assigned day. The Quad-City day is Sunday, Dec. 18.

There are two ways to participate: by counting birds at your backyard bird feeder or going out in the field for an all-day count.

If you can help with either one, call Kelly McKay at 309-235-4661 by Tuesday, Dec. 13. McKay\u00a0is a wildlife biologist from Hampton who tallies the counts for several Quad-City areas, and it is helpful to talk with counters ahead of time, he said.

To count birds at your feeder,\u00a0record the maximum number of each species you see at any one time on your day. You may count once or several times, but you should record only one maximum number. For example, if you see one cardinal at 10 a.m., two cardinals at noon and four at 2 p.m., your count for cardinals should be four. When you are done, mail your results to Kelly McKay, P.O. Box 452, Hampton, IL 61256.

To participate in the Quad-City feeder count, you must be located within a circle, the center of which is the Interstate 74 bridge and 15 miles in diameter. This is roughly the area between the Interstate 280 and Interstate 80 bridges and between I-80 north of Davenport and I-80 on the south of the Quad-Cities.

In the field-party counts, volunteers fan out in cars and on foot to canvass pre-set circles that are 15 miles in diameter, an area of about 177 square miles. Again, if\u00a0you can\u00a0to\u00a0help, contact McKay at 309-235-4661 by Tuesday, Dec. 13.

You do not have to be an expert birder to participate in the field-party counts; you can help by driving, being an extra set of eyes and helping with the list, McKay said.

In the Quad-City region, there are 10 field-party counts in addition to the Quad-Cities proper. See related item for locations.

For years, survivors of the Japanese attack on the Naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii,\u00a0have been\u00a0honored at an observance at the Milan American Legion 569.

Over time, the number of survivors and other World War II veterans, friends and family members dwindled.

On Sunday, when the 75th anniversary of the Dec. 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor was observed at the Legion, only 18 guests\u00a0\u2014 without the presence of a Pearl Harbor survivor or a World War II veteran\u00a0\u2014 were on hand to dine on a military mess hall \u201cfavorite\u201d of chipped beef on toast.

Post Adjutant Norm Dunlap, of rural Milan, said that Quad-City survivor Sgt. Major Al Taylor had planned to\u00a0attend until his health and a Sunday snowstorm kept him home.

\u201cI noticed last year our attendance was down. We had 50 last year,\u201d Dunlap said. \u201cThe young kids don\u2019t understand what happened.\u201d

\u201cThey don\u2019t realize the impact it had,\u201d said Vietnam veteran Doug Dungan, of Illinois City.

\u201cWe can\u2019t get the young people like we used to,\u201d said Dungan, whose father was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) for many years. Dungan could not join the VFW for some time (the Vietnam struggle was considered to be a \u201cconflict,\u201d not a war, at one time), \u201cbut the Legion took me in,\u201d he said.

Dunlap gave a presentation about what happened during the Pearl Harbor attack, some of which came directly from the memories of survivors, including Taylor and the only other Quad-City Pearl Harbor survivor Eldon Baxter.

It was 75 years ago that the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in a \u201csurprise act of aggression that led us into World War II,\u201d Dunlap said.

On the day of the attacks, Taylor worked alone at Schofield Barracks Hospital at Pearl Harbor. When the attacks started, he called in doctors and dispatched ambulances.

The Japanese circled their planes in figure 8 formations and \u201cthey pounded (the harbor) every 7 seconds,\u201d Dunlap said.

Taylor, who was \u201cjust a young kid,\u201d transported 19 men that day, and\u00a0all survived. He also helped pick up the injured from the water, Dunlap said.

Baxter was on the USS West Virginia battleship when the attack began.

\u201cThe Japanese pilots were flying so low, they actually waved to the sailors,\u201d Dunlap said.

Baxter was reported to be missing, and was presumed dead. His family\u00a0held a funeral for him, then discovered after Christmas that he was alive.

Baxter is the only original member of the Quad-City Pearl Harbor Survivors Association, said Jack Smith, of Moline, adjutant\u00a0of Moline American Legion Post 246.

Smith was an honorary member of the group. His uncles, Joe and Mike Giovenazzo of Silvis, (Joe later changed his last name to Givens) were in the military.

\u201cI can remember Joe breaking down crying,\u201d Smith said. \u201cHe had talked Mike into signing up on the Arizona,\u201d where Mike Giovenazzo now is entombed after the Pearl Harbor attack.

\u201cTime takes its toll,\u201d Smith said. \u201cWe talk about PTSD now, but it was there with the other (veterans), too.\u201d

He always enjoyed talking to the Pearl Harbor survivors. \u201cIt was an honor to help them go to meetings. I\u2019ve got all the records they gave me\u00a0\u2014 a treasure trove of old memorabilia.\u201d

\u201cIt\u2019s up to us to keep the legacies alive,\u201d said Dunlap, who added that thousands of acts of heroism went unrecognized because \u201cdocumenting acts of heroism wasn\u2019t a priority.\u201d

\u00a0CEDAR RAPIDS\u00a0\u2014 Senate Minority Leader-elect Rob Hogg is telling Democrats they will have to play defense now that Republicans control the governor\u2019s office as well as both chambers of the Iowa Legislature.

The Cedar Rapids Democrat plans to employ the strategy used by former University of Iowa basketball coach Tom Davis\u00a0\u2014 a full-court press.

Hogg, 49, told about 70 people at a legislative preview and fundraiser Tuesday in\u00a0in Cedar Rapids that for the first time in his life both state government and the federal government are controlled by Republicans.

\u201cIt\u2019s a tough situation,\u201d he told supporters. \u201cThings we took for granted may come under attack. Some bad things may happen.\u201d

However, Hogg said Democrats can mitigate the damage and find their way back to the majority if they stay engaged and \u201cmake sure the voices of people who need help are heard.\u201d

\u201cDon\u2019t let the Republicans off the hook by just assuming they are going to say \u2018no\u2019 to you,\u201d he said. \u201cIf you assume that they will say \u2018no\u2019 and you don\u2019t speak up, then you\u2019re enabling them to say \u2018no.\u2019\u201d

\u201cThis is 21st century,\u201d he said. \u201cWe should be talking about broad prosperity and full employment and good jobs and good benefits and good schools, vibrant communities, rural revitalization across our state.\u201d

Even as they play defense, Hogg called for Democrats to continue to share a \u201cpositive vision of what when we work together we are able to accomplish to build a safe, healthy, peaceful, prosperous, sustainable and inclusive future.\u201d

Finally, he offered encouragement to the many Democrats who are disheartened by the November election.

\u201cThings can come back in a hurry and I for one am personally committed to doing everything possible I can to correct the mistakes we\u2019ve made in the past and make the improvements we need to make to love this state,\u201d Hogg said.

If they do that and continue to spread their positive vision, \u201cwe have a very, very positive future ahead of us no matter how dark things may seem at present,\u201d he said.

For Ariel Scott, her third time competing in the Isabel Bloom Sculpture Competition was the charm.

The 18-year-old senior at United Township High School took first prize in the\u00a0third annual Isabel Bloom Sculpture Competition with her work entitled Guardian, which shows a blind boy with his service dog.

The annual sculpture competition benefits the annual Village in Bloom Arts Festival. This year\u2019s theme was \u201cFour-Legged Friends.\u201d The sculptures were on display Tuesday at the Figge Art Museum in Davenport during a dinner for the contestants.

\u201cI have a little dog at home,\u201d\u00a0Ariel, of East Moline,\u00a0said. \u201cBut I wanted to make this piece stand out more, so I came up with the blind boy with his seeing-eye dog. The animals we consider pets are so much more than pets.\u201d

Ariel\u00a0said she wanted to impart the feelings between a boy and his dog. \u201cOur pets love us, no matter what,\u201d she said.

Bill Scott, Ariel\u2019s father, said that when he saw the finished product, \u201cI knew she nailed it. I don\u2019t know where she got the idea for the seeing-eye dog, but she worked so hard, and I knew she\u2019d get it this time.\u201d

Ariel\u00a0will get to help turn her clay work into an Isabel Bloom work, helping to create the mold as well as painting and glazing the final product. She will also sign a number of them.

In August, she will begin attending the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design.

Donna Young, co-owner and sculptor at Isabel Bloom, said that there was a lot of discussion regarding second and third place, in addition to Ariel\u2019s first-place entry.

Brileigh McCumsey, a freshman at Assumption High School in Davenport, came in third with her work, Ohana. Lauren Brewer, a senior at Pleasant Valley High School, earned second place with her work, A-mew-sment.

The talent was everywhere in the show. Patriece Garbyshak, 17, of Rock Island, who is homeschooled, crated a piece she called Devotion to Glory. It has a German Shepherd with its left paw resting on a military helmet.

Normally, Patriece spends her time sketching in pencil. \u201cThis was my first attempt at sculpture,\u201d she said.

\u201cI like looking at something and being able to create it,\u201d she said. \u201cI started drawing horses at a young age and when I got good at that I moved on to people and other things.\u201d

Patriece said she likes to take her work a step further and make sure that her subject is not only showing emotion, but her final product is one that evokes emotion. \u201cAs an artist you hope to stir emotion and that people get something out of your work.\u201d

As serious as the artists took their work, they also made it fun. Payton Henry, 16, a junior at Quad-City Christian in Moline, made a sculpture called Playful Chihuahua. Her subject was her 1-year-old Chihuahua named Buttercup.

Another popular sculpture was Christmas with Oreo, by Sami Rossow, a senior at Bettendorf High School, which shows a dog with a Santa hat on its head.

Young said she hopes those who competed this year and will be in high school next year enter into the competition again. \u201cThere is so much talent,\u201d she said.

MUSCATINE, Iowa \u2014 A new gallery in downtown Muscatine hopes to feature young and up-and-coming local artists, in an effort to promote their work within their home community.

Sunrise River Gallery, owned by Jim Elias and Chris Anderson, held its soft opening in November. The gallery currently displays the work of six local artists.

Leticia Pozzi, one of the artists featured at the gallery, said she is honored to be part of the new business in her community.\u00a0

\"I enjoy that it's in Muscatine,\" Pozzi said.

Pozzi's works include paintings and graphic design creations, and she said she uses lines and patterns to show complexity and movement, with designs representing nature from mountains to water.

\"I love abstract, and I create a relationship between abstract and our life and nature,\" she said. \"Life can be complex, yet we have to learn how to surpass our complexity and that's the nature of being a human, so that's why the lines represent the complexity of our lives.\"

Pozzi also has two owls displayed, which she created while working toward her Bachelor of the Arts degree in fine arts at the University of Iowa.

\"I like being intense, I like being challenged, and having that knowledge and having that determination, it's hard,\" she said. \"It took me 15 hours to just draw the owl.\"

The prints and bookmarks of her graphic designs show images representing Iowa, including an abstract of Mark Twain and the Figge Art Museum.

Originally from Brazil, Pozzi said she is sometimes asked why she would live in Iowa, so she wanted her art to show why she enjoys the state.

\"I just wanted to emphasize and promote Iowa a little bit more,\" she said.

Michelle Servadio also has her artwork on display at the gallery. One photograph, \"Sunrise Beckey,\" depicts a Muscatine sunrise near the Mississippi River with the Norbert F. Beckey Bridge in the background.

\"I love the reflection of light on the concrete,\" Servadio said. \"I like to catch reflections, they fascinate me.\"

The eclectic art spread throughout the gallery is not separated by artist, which Servadio said is somewhat unique and allows a different perspective of the art, much of which depicts scenes or themes from Muscatine.

\"We want to celebrate Muscatine, we want to celebrate our young people and our young artists here,\" she said.

Elias is also an artist, and had begun to paint again when he decided local artists could use more local space to display their work.

\"The goal...is to be able to showcase local artists, and give us all a place to hang our work and put it up for sale,\" he said.

Elias hopes to continue adding artists in the space.

\"I want to be able to have a real wide variety of types of art, showcase different local artists,\" he said.

The point of the gallery is to help local artists promote and sell their work, and all are welcome to contact Elias to discuss renting space to display their art.

On a back display area, he hopes to have a special area for new, young artists, and he has been in contact with teachers who could recommend students to have their work displayed.

Elias also has business experience, and teaches business and entrepreneurship at Muscatine Community College. As an artist and business owner, he hopes to provide a place for he and other artists to display, promote, and sell their work.

\"We want to support up-and-coming artists, we want to showcase students, young people that are trying to get it going,\" he said.

The gallery will be open starting next week from 12-6 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, and 12-4 p.m. Sunday, as well as by appointment.

For more information or to have artwork considered for the gallery, call 563-607-5385, email Elias at jim@sunriserivergallery.com, or visit the Sunrise River Gallery at 215 E. Second St. in downtown Muscatine.

Trump selects Gov. Branstad as China ambassador

\"Xi

Xi Jinping, then China's vice president, greets Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, and his wife, Chris, on Feb. 15, 2012, in Muscatine.

Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad has accepted an offer to serve as U.S. Ambassador to China under President-elect Donald Trump. A formal announcement is planned for Thursday.

Since Trump\u2019s Nov. 8 election victory, political observers have speculated Trump would offer the role of Chinese ambassador to Branstad, who has a long professional relationship with China President Xi Jinping. Read more.

China job would mean Iowa's first female governor

\"Gov.

Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds.\u00a0

The departure of the nation's longest-serving governor to accept an appointment as U.S. ambassador to China means Iowa would be led by its first female governor.

An aide to President-elect Donald Trump confirmed on Wednesday that Trump has offered to nominate Republican Gov. Terry Branstad for the ambassadorship, and that the governor is expected to accept.

If Branstad accepts and is confirmed by the Senate, Republican Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds would become Iowa's governor. She would hold the position until Branstad's term ends in January 2019, and she could run for governor in 2018.

The 57-year-old Reynolds was a first-term state senator when Branstad chose her to run for election as his lieutenant governor.

Reynolds has focused on economic development and education during her six years as lieutenant governor.

Man's controversial 'Zombie Nativity' vandalized

\"zombie
zombie nativity

A suburban Cincinnati man says someone vandalized the \"Zombie Nativity\" scene he puts up annually, beheading the ghoulish-looking Mary figure and flipping the greenish baby Jesus into the yard.

Jasen Dixon says someone damaged the handmade scene early Tuesday at his home in Sycamore Township, northeast of Cincinnati. He has since repaired the scene and says he'll keep rebuilding it if necessary.

Dixon says it's the first time someone has intentionally damaged the structure since he started the holiday display in 2014.

But it's been a topic of controversy previously. The township took Dixon to court last year for alleged zoning violations because of the structure over the nontraditional nativity scene, but it eventually dropped the case.

Dixon's attorney argued the township was trying to suppress his freedoms.

Trump named Time magazine's 'Person of the Year'

\"Trump

In this Dec. 6, 2016, photo, President-elect Donald Trump speaks to supporters during a rally in Fayetteville, N.C.

Time magazine this morning named President-elect Donald Trump its Person of the Year. \"It's a great honor. It means a lot,\" Trump said.

Time editor Nancy Gibbs said on the program that Democrat Hillary Clinton was the No. 2 finalist. Gibbs said the choice of Trump this year was \"straightforward.\" Read more.

Arrest reports put a different 'Kinnick experience' on display

\"Kinnick

Police officers and fans outside Kinnick Stadium before the Hawkeye football season opener.

For fans attending Iowa football games in 2016, the \u201cKinnick experience\u2019\u2019 offered a variety of memories.

There was the drama of a last-second win over second-ranked Michigan and the heartbreak of a similar defeat to North Dakota State.

There was the frustration of losses to Northwestern and Wisconsin and celebration because of dominating performances in lopsided victories over Iowa State and Nebraska.

And along the way, the \"Kinnick experience\" took on an entirely different meaning for some fans. In the spirit of the season, we share the experiences of some at Hawkeye home games this season in this special edition of the Hawkeye 10@10. Read more.

road work sign

Here's the latest from the city of Davenport on road work on Brady Street.

Work will continue for a few more weeks as crews wrap up sewer repair between River Drive and 6th Street. All lanes of Brady Street will be re-opened along this stretch until spring, when construction resumes. Work in the spring will last about two to three months.

Asphalt finish work continues between 6th and Lombard streets until the work is complete. The contractor anticipates the two right/east lanes will be complete by Monday, at which time work will flip to the left/west two lanes. Methods that protect the work, and ensure quality, will be used during those times when weather conditions warrant.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) \u2014 Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner has approved a plan providing billions of dollars in subsidies to Exelon Corp. to keep two unprofitable nuclear plants from closing prematurely.

The Republican appeared at Riverdale High School in Port Byron on Wednesday to sign legislation he said will save thousands of jobs by rewarding Exelon for producing carbon-free energy.

In addition to $235 million a year for Exelon to prop up nuclear plants in the Quad Cities and Clinton, the plan provides hundreds of millions of dollars in energy-efficiency programs and assistance to low-income energy users.

\"I was unwilling to gamble with these communities, gamble with thousands of good-paying jobs and gamble with our energy future,\" Rauner said in a prepared statement. \"While this legislation isn't perfect, it allows us to protect jobs, ratepayers and taxpayers.\"

The law ensures the plants in Cordova and Clinton stay open for 10 years, caps the increase in ratepayer bills at an average of 25 cents a month for the 13-year life of the deal and allows for expansion of alternative power generators, such as wind and solar.

Exelon said in a statement that the measure, known as the Future Energy Jobs Bill, \"safeguards the state's top source of clean energy, protects and creates thousands of jobs and strengthens the Illinois economy, while preserving competitive rates.\"

Rauner previously criticized \"special deals\" for corporations, but last week said closing the plants would have \"devastated the two communities.\"

Critics, such as BEST Coalition, a nonprofit that opposes the deal, says the nuclear plants aren't needed because Illinois produces 41 percent more energy than it needs and exports the excess. BEST Coalition also says subsidizing the plants will mean a steep increase in rates.

PORT BYRON\u00a0\u2014 Governor Bruce Rauner today signed Senate Bill 2814, the Future Energy Jobs bill, at a ceremony at Riverdale High School in Port Byron. The bipartisan legislation ensures the Quad Cities and Clinton power facilities remain open for another 10 years, saving thousands of good-paying jobs, while protecting working families, seniors, and thousands of other high-quality, good-paying jobs throughout the state by capping residential and business energy rates.

\u201cWhen this legislation was originally drafted, it was a Christmas tree loaded with special interest goodies that would have skyrocketed energy costs on families and businesses across the state,\u201d said Governor Rauner. \u201cSo we needed to find a balance, because I was unwilling to gamble with these communities, gamble with thousands of good paying jobs and gamble with our energy diversity. While this legislation isn\u2019t perfect, it allows us to protect jobs, ratepayers and taxpayers.\u201d

Before Governor Rauner\u2019s involvement, the legislature was poised to pass a massive bill with demand rates that could have skyrocketed energy bills for consumers. Governor Rauner laid out a pathway for a deal with his statement of principles which outlined any energy agreement should preserve jobs while protecting ratepayers and taxpayers.

\u201cThank you to those who negotiated in good faith to help make this bill a reality, and most importantly, thank you to the people of the Quad Cities and Clinton for your persistence, your patience, and hard work,\u201d Governor Rauner added.

Senate Bill 2814 ensures the Clinton and Quad Cities power facilities remain open for another 10 years. It contains a guaranteed cap that energy prices cannot increase more than 25 cents on the average residential home, and cannot increase more than 1.3 percent on commercial and industrial users over the next ten years. Rates are projected to decrease for the first several years due to the utilities being able to amortize energy efficiency. It also promotes unprecedented wind and solar expansion and preserves zero-emission generation, maintaining Illinois\u2019 status in leading the nation in zero-carbon generation.

\"I want to commend Sen. Anderson, as well as every local community leader, who worked diligently to educate both public and policy makers in the Capitol about the important contribution this facility makes to the local electrical supply grid, the regional economy and the state as a whole,\" said Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno (R-Lemont).

\u201cA joint study conducted by the Illinois Commerce Commission, the Illinois Power Agency, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity found that allowing several nuclear plants to prematurely close would cause our electric rates to increase by as much as 26% during stress events while grid reliability and capacity would significantly decrease. Closing the plants would also cost Illinois approximately 7,800 jobs and $1.8 billion in economic activity,\u201d said House Republican Leader Jim Durkin (R-Burr Ridge). \u201cAt the end of the day, had we failed to take action Illinois and Illinois consumers would suffer, and our electric rates would get dramatically out of hand.\u201d

\u201cGetting this bill passed, and saving jobs in the 36th Senate District has been one of my top priorities since taking office almost two years ago. This legislation saves our area from losing more than 800 direct jobs, 1,200 indirect jobs, and the largest property taxpayer in Rock Island County\u201d said State Sen. Neil Anderson (R-Rock Island). \u201cIt has been a long and difficult process to pass this legislation, but I\u2019m happy to be able to say we have been successful thanks to negotiations between stakeholders, the General Assembly, and the Governor\u2019s Office.\u201d

\u201cThis historic legislation will protect the state\u2019s primary source of clean energy while saving thousands of good jobs at our plants and providing millions of dollars in low-income assistance as well as job training in communities that need it most,\u201d said Chris Crane, president and CEO of Exelon. \u201cWe appreciate the leadership of Governor Rauner and legislative leaders for their roles in positioning Illinois to be a national leader in clean energy, job growth and economic development.\u201d

\u201cICC Staff, including policy analysts, accountants, economists, attorneys and engineers spent a great deal of time analyzing this bill,\u201d said Brien Sheahan, Chairman of the Illinois Commerce Commission. \u201cOur analysis shows the bill not only provides true caps to protect and limit customer rate impacts, but also includes several methods by which the ICC can enforce these caps. We are confident in our ability to oversee the charge this legislation creates for our agency.\u201d

\u201cThis is a big win for consumers,\u201d said Dave Kolata, Executive Director of the Citizens Utility Board (CUB). \u201cIt\u2019s Economics 101 \u2013 reducing demand for electricity also reduces the price. Illinois already enjoys some of the lowest rates in the nation because of energy efficiency, and this bill will drive further savings to homeowners.\u201d According to a CUB analysis, residential consumers will enjoy at least $4 billion in lower electric bills over the lifetime of the law, which also imposes a cap limiting bill increases to no more than 25-35 cents a month while savings from efficiency ramp up.

\u201cWith this legislation, Illinois will now be able to compete head-to-head with any other state in the nation in the race to build a renewable energy economy-- and win,\u201d said Lesley McCain, director of the Illinois Solar Energy Association (ISEA). \u201cThis bill will mean more jobs for solar installers, more savings for solar customers and environmental benefits for all of us who gain when cleaner sources of energy are used.\u201d

\u201cWith this legislation, Illinois will now be able to compete head-to-head for clean energy jobs with any other state in the nation -- and win,\u201d said Jennifer Walling, Executive Director of the Illinois Environmental Council (IEC), who added \u201cThe Future Energy Jobs bill fixes and improves the broken Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS), leading to $12 to $15 billion in private investment and the development of at least 3,000 megawatts of new solar and 1,300 MWs of wind energy\u2014 enough to power nearly 1 million homes.\"

LOS ANGELES (AP) \u2014 As Donald Trump makes his thank-you tour of states that voted for him, other parts of the country are gearing up to do battle with his administration.

Three of the most populous, urban and ethnically diverse states \u2014 California, New York and Illinois \u2014 voted heavily for Hillary Clinton and are at odds with the incoming administration on such issues as immigration, health care, climate change, abortion rights and gun control.

In Massachusetts, a state Clinton won by more than 25 points, Democratic Attorney General Maura Healey has threatened to sue if the incoming administration carries out Trump campaign promises she contends are unconstitutional. The incoming top law enforcement official in California has hinted at a similar approach.

\"If you want to take on a forward-leaning state that is prepared to defend its rights and interests, then come at us,\" Rep. Xavier Becerra said just hours after he was appointed California's attorney general by Gov. Jerry Brown.

Nothing has stirred more anxiety in the states that voted for Clinton than Trump's statements on immigration. During the campaign, he pledged to deport millions of people in the country illegally and bar Muslims from entering. In Ohio last week, on the first stop in his thank-you tour, Trump reiterated his intent to build \"a great wall\" along the Mexican border.

On Monday, the California Legislature returned for the first time since the election and passed a resolution urging the Trump administration not to pursue mass deportations. An estimated 2.4 million Californians are immigrants in the U.S. illegally.

Democrats, who hold supermajorities in both houses in California, also announced legislation that would provide lawyers to those in deportation proceedings and train criminal defense attorneys to advise clients on the immigration consequences of their cases.

Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon said the intent is to put a \"firewall\" around Californians.

\"If you want to get to them, you have to go through us,\" he said.

In New York, Mayor Bill de Blasio is also pushing back. He said he and Trump talked about immigrants in the country illegally and \"exclusionary policies\" involving Muslims, among other issues.

\"I reiterated to the president-elect that I would be open-minded as we continue substantive discussions, but I would also be vigilant,\" said de Blasio, a Democrat.

In Chicago, the nation's third-largest city and a Democratic stronghold, Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced $1 million to help people fight deportation.

On Wednesday, Emanuel emerged from a meeting with Trump saying he had presented the president-elect with a letter from 14 mayors asking him not to scrap an Obama administration policy that protects people who entered the country illegally as children from deportation. Trump has vowed to end the protections.

\"We are clear as mayors that these are dreamers who are seeking the American Dream, and we should embrace them rather than do a bait-and-switch,\" Emanuel said after the meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina.

In Rhode Island, Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza has pledged to do whatever the city can to protect residents from being deported for civil immigration violations.

Democrats in California, where Clinton crushed Trump by nearly 4.2 million votes, are especially riled by Trump's presidency. Party leaders said many of the state's priorities of recent years, including its pioneering laws to fight global warming and its efforts to greatly expand health care, are threatened.

California was the first state to embrace the Affordable Care Act and has the largest population of beneficiaries. Trump's threats to repeal and replace the federal health care law could strip coverage for hundreds of thousands of people, Rendon warned.

On his \"USA Thank You Tour\" \u2014 a series of rallies in favorable states that presidential historians say is unprecedented for a president-elect \u2014 Trump has mentioned one issue on which there might be broad agreement. Political leaders in Democratic-learning states and cities are encouraged by his proposal to spend $1 trillion on infrastructure.

New York, for example, is looking for billions in federal help to rebuild highways, modernize New York City's subways and construct a new rail tunnel under the Hudson River. Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer, the incoming Senate minority leader, said the first 100 days of a Trump administration \"could provide us with a real shot at fixing New York's aging sewers, roads and bridges.\"

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti spoke with Trump after the election and described him as \"very supportive of our efforts to invest in infrastructure.\" Downtown Los Angeles is undergoing a building boom, while the region known for gridlocked freeways is expanding rail systems.

Garcetti, a Democrat, said he is not concerned that Trump will favor Republican states with money for building and construction.

\"He comes from a blue city in a blue state and more importantly than politics, he comes from a place where people depend on the subway and depend on public transportation to reduce traffic and pollution. So he gets that,\" the mayor said.

PORT BYRON, Ill. (AP) \u2014 The Latest on Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner signing nuclear plant legislation on Wednesday (all times local):

10:50 a.m.

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner has signed legislation providing billions of dollars in subsidies to Exelon Corp. so the power giant can keep unprofitable nuclear plants running in Clinton and the Quad Cities.

Rauner's office says he signed the measure Wednesday morning during a ceremony at Riverdale High School in Port Byron. He planned to sign it again later in the day in Clinton. Both cities are home to nuclear plants. State lawmakers approved the legislation during last week's veto session.

Rauner said in a statement that \"while this legislation isn't perfect, it allows us to protect jobs, ratepayers and taxpayers.\" He says he wasn't willing to \"gamble with thousands of good paying jobs.\"

Exelon says the law \"safeguards the state's top source of clean energy, protects and creates thousands of jobs and strengthens the Illinois economy, while preserving competitive rates.\"

4:40 a.m.

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner is set to sign legislation that provides billions of dollars in subsidies to Exelon Corp. so the power giant can keep unprofitable nuclear plants running in Clinton and the Quad Cities.

The Republican is scheduled to sign legislation Wednesday to keep the Quad Cities plant open in Port Byron in the morning and do the same later in the day in Clinton to keep the plant there running.

The measure that provides $235 million per year to Exelon was approved by lawmakers last week. It calls for more than 4 million customers of power-distributing subsidiaries ComEd and Ameren to pay more to finance the plan. Rauner previously criticized \"special deals\" for corporations but last week said closing the plants would have \"devastated the two communities.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Abbott is seeking to terminate its buyout of troubled medical diagnostics maker Alere as that company deals with the fallout of a key device recall and government investigations.

Abbott Laboratories agreed to buy Alere Inc. in February for $56 per share, or $5.8 billion, in a move to expand its medical device offerings. Since then, Alere, based in Waltham, Massachusetts, has recalled a key monitoring device, delayed a key financial statement, and is being investigated over its overseas businesses. Its stock price has since fallen more than 25 percent.

\"Alere is no longer the company Abbott agreed to buy 10 months ago,\" said Scott Stoffel, Abbott's divisional vice president of external communications.

Abbott filed its complaint to end the deal in the Delaware Court of Chancery.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) \u2014 The likely departure of the nation's longest-serving governor to accept an appointment as U.S. ambassador to China means Iowa could soon be led by its first female governor, just as the state shifts to full Republican control of its Legislature.

An aide to President-elect Donald Trump confirmed Wednesday that he'd offered to nominate Gov. Terry Branstad as China ambassador, and that Branstad was expected to accept.

If Branstad accepts and is confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Republican Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds would become Iowa's governor. She would hold the position until Branstad's term ends in January 2019, and she could run for governor in 2018.

Reynolds, 57, was a first-term state senator when Branstad chose her to run as his lieutenant governor. During her six years as lieutenant governor, she has focused on economic development and education.

Before meeting with Trump, Branstad was asked about Reynolds' qualifications. He noted Reynolds' multiple international trade missions and her involvement in key appointments in his administration. Branstad also highlighted her promotion of education efforts, especially those involving science, technology, engineering and math.

\"She's very well-prepared and has great leadership ability,\" he said.

Before being elected to the Legislature, Reynolds worked as treasurer of Clarke County, a southern Iowa county of less than 10,000 people.

When former Democrat Sen. Tom Harkin announced his retirement from the U.S. Senate, Reynolds was courted to run. She decided against it, telling The Associated Press in a story published in 2015 that she was more focused on the state. She backed now-Sen. Joni Ernst, a Republican who was elected in 2014.

Branstad, 70, is in the midst of his sixth nonconsecutive term as governor. With more than 21 years at the helm of Iowa government, Branstad is the country's longest serving governor.

Before Trump offered him the ambassadorship, Branstad indicated he planned to complete his current gubernatorial term and hadn't ruled out another four-year term.

If Branstad leaves office, Reynolds would become governor just as Republicans take control of both legislative chambers in Iowa and mark the first time in 20 years that GOP has controlled the House, Senate and governor's office.

Republican leaders have already indicated their plans to push a conservative agenda.

Because Branstad faces a confirmation process, it's unclear how quickly Reynolds could be sworn in. It's also unclear how quickly Reynolds would appoint someone to serve as her lieutenant governor.

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) \u2014 Voters have approved a bond issue aimed at improving safety and security at Iowa Western Community College.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (http://bit.ly/2hgMBor ) that more than 63 percent of voters in the seven core counties the college serves backed the measure Tuesday.

College spokesman Don Kohler says the $14.5 million from the bonds will pay for new cameras, doors, locks and other security improvements at the main campus in Council Bluffs and four satellite sites in Atlantic, Clarinda, Harlan and Shenandoah.

The improvements also will include computer equipment and other behind-the-scenes items that are designed to improve safety during campus lockdowns.
