BHS ranks among top high schools

Bettendorf High School was included in a ranking of America's top public high schools compiled by Newsweek magazine and the website The Daily Beast. BHS was ranked 1,492 out of the top 2,000 schools and 11th in Iowa. It was the only Quad-City area school on the list.

The rankings took into account the average number of Advanced Placement tests taken by students and their average score, scores on college placement tests, graduation rates, percent of graduates who go on to college and percent of students who received subsidized school lunches.

Davenport Police to honor fallen officers

The Honor Guard for the Davenport Police Department will hold a memorial ceremony for fallen officers at 11 a.m. Friday in the community room at the Davenport Police Department, 416 N. Harrison St., Davenport. The ceremony will honor Bernard Geertz, William Jurgens, Emil Speth and Michael Farnsworth, officers who died in the line of duty in the department's history. The ceremony will be followed by a procession to the fallen officer’s grave sites, then a luncheon for the Gold Star families in the community room. 

Retirement ceremony at Mississippi Bend AEA

The Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency board of directors will hold a retirement ceremony for Dr. Glenn M. Pelecky from 3-5:30 p.m. Friday at 729 21st St. Pelecky has been the chief administrator at the agency for the 25 years.

Supreme Court grants provide legal help

The Iowa Supreme Court has approved more than $325,000 in grants to 14 nonprofit programs that provide legal assistance to low-income Iowans with civil legal problems. With this year's grants, the Supreme Court has awarded more than $23 million in grants funded by the Interest on Lawyers' Trust Account grants since the program began in 1985. Among the grants were $24,815 for the HELP Through Education and Law Program Inc., Davenport, and $7,948 for Muscatine Legal Services.

Buffalo Shores reopens

The Scott County campground at Buffalo Shores will reopen today after being closed due to flooding.

The Scott County Conservation Board said the riverfront row of campsites will remain closed indefinitely because of high water, and a very limited area of the beach is available for use. The docks at the boat ramp are still out until water conditions permit installation. For more information, call 563-328-3281, Ext. 1.
