MUSCATINE \u2014 When Joe Reyes went to bed Monday night, he had no intention of traveling from his home in Bettendorf to see former South Bend, Ind., mayor and presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg in Muscatine.

Reyes said he had been following Buttigieg\u2019s candidacy and when he learned about the youngest candidate\u2019s message of inclusiveness, it really struck a chord with him\u00a0\u2014 especially, he said, contrasted with President Donald Trump. He decided Tuesday morning to make the trip to the event.

During Buttigieg\u2019s town hall meeting at the Riverside Event Center, Reyes raised his hand. He later said no one was as surprised as him when Buttigieg called on him to ask a question. There was something that had been weighing heavy on his mind since late last year.

\u201cLast month, we had hate material spread throughout the neighborhood,\u201d Reyes said, swallowing nerves. \u201cWe had a Holocaust denier visit our neighborhood. As a minority, we cannot have things like that in this country. It\u2019s dangerous. It\u2019s dangerous not only to us but to our children.\u201d

In speaking with his wife Wendy, an educator, regarding some of the in-service training\u00a0\u2014 including applying a tourniquet and treating a gunshot wound\u00a0\u2014 Reyes said it was similar to training he and his son (a combat medic in Iraq) had to take for deployment. He spoke with Buttigieg about this concern as well.

Buttigieg spoke about the importance of education and promised educators \u201chelp is on its way.\u201d He said with a spouse who is a teacher, he has had an education on education. He spoke of limiting certain kinds of weaponry, which he described as the kind he carried when he served in the military in Afghanistan. He also said the country needs to not put as much emphasis on standardized testing. He commented that if teachers were \u201cgiven the honor of soldiers and paid more like doctors, the country would be a better place.\u201d

Reyes also said the incidents with hate material made him think of pre-war Germany in 1938. He scoffed at the flyers' message of \u201cif you aren\u2019t white, then you are not right.\"

\u201cThis is the last thing you should have to worry about, or your kids should have to worry about,\u201d Buttigieg said.

He explained that when military members take up arms to serve the country, it\u2019s with the understanding that teachers and students in the country won\u2019t have to. He said national security meant that the U.S. needed to stop endless wars overseas, but needed to be secure at home.

\u201cYou cannot fully love a country if you hate half the people in it,\u201d Buttigieg said.

Buttigieg began Tuesday's town hall with an opening statement, but he spent most of the time answering questions from the audience of about 250. When the subject turned to who his running mate would be, he opted to answer what he hoped to see in a running mate rather than a specific name.\u00a0

\u201cBalance is going to be very important,\u201d he said. \u201cWhen a candidate picks a running mate, it isn\u2019t just a political decision. It\u2019s the first presidential decision you make because the whole country has to live with that decision.\u201d

He said the first criteria would be the ability to lead the nation in the event he was unable to serve. He explained that leadership would reflect the country being served and commented that leadership needed to be at least 50% women because that reflects the country. He said racial and geographical backgrounds would be a consideration, and he wants a running mate to be truthful in that the person \u201cwould tell you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear.\u201d

Buttigieg also addressed several questions from attendees who are disabled and unable to work. He spoke of changes needed to the system that he believes encourages disabled people who can work not to. He talked about the rising cost of health care, education, and preparing for retirement. He also commented on the economy and making sure areas such as Muscatine were not left behind in economic growth in favor of larger areas.

\u201cWe need to make it more affordable to be an American right now,\u201d he said.

He said measuring the growth in the economy should be done based on the lower 90% of the people in the nation rather than the top 10%.

Buttigieg ended the meeting with a message of hope for the future, saying the important thing is to plan for a future when Donald Trump isn\u2019t president.

After the rally, Reyes said he thought Buttigieg spoke well.

Reyes said he was not normally a political person and attended his first caucus four years ago. Reyes said he was going to get out during the presidential race and would vote for \u201canybody but Trump.\u201d

Randy Moore, appointed in 2018 by then-Mayor Frank Klipsch, has resigned from the Davenport Civil Rights Commission.

Latrice Lacey, commission director, said Tuesday she received notification about the resignation Wednesday when Tiffany Thorndike, administrative assistant to the city council and administration, forwarded Moore\u2019s letter of resignation.

Moore could not be reached for comment Tuesday afternoon.

Moore was appointed during a year of disagreement among commission members about who is a rightful member.\u00a0

The mayor\u2019s three appointees were Moore; Lee Gaston, a finance director with the Quad-Cities Center for Active Seniors Inc. (CASI); and Patricia Hardaway, a human-resources executive with Palmer College of Chiropractic, who resigned in July.

\"Randy
Randy Moore

Moore, president and chief executive officer of Iowa American Water Co., previously served on the Iowa Civil Rights Commission, the state agency that coordinates with Davenport\u2019s local office.

Three other commissioners whose terms ended in November 2018 refused to step down when Klipsch did not re-appoint them. The dispute over who are rightful commissioners has continued for more than a year.\u00a0

Earlier this month, two simultaneous meetings \u2014 each with a different set of commissioners who claim to be the rightful position-holders \u2014 continued at the same table.

Typically, commission members have served fixed terms and are replaced by appointees proposed by the mayor and approved by the city council.

Appointing Moore's replacement will fall to new Mayor Mike Matson.\u00a0

The next regular meeting of the commission is set for Feb. 11.

LeClaire City Council made a first move to allow convenience stores to be up to 6,500 square feet, despite public protest.

On Monday, the council voted 4-0 to approve the first reading of an ordinance amending the maximum space of a convenience store from 5,000 square feet to 6,500 square feet.

During the public hearing, several residents accused the council of making the change to accommodate a planned Kwik Star at Cody Road and Eagle Ridge.

\"When we moved to LeClaire, we bought the property that we bought because we loved the view and the serenity of that location,\" resident Dennis Coots said. He is part of a lawsuit against the city by a group of homeowners that began in 2018, when the city had approved a revision of the city's comprehensive plan and rezoned a 3.3 acre property to high-density commercial from its former low-density residential zoning. \"We're not opposed to a Kwik Star, but we are extremely opposed to the location of it.\"

\"My concern here is do the adult thing. Adults devise a plan and follow it, children do what feel good,\" said resident Jeff Rose, also a party to the lawsuit. He criticized a Dec. 26 Planning and Zoning meeting about the ordinance, saying the city needed to go through its processes, not rush something through. \"Things just don't seem right when the city's making decisions like that.\"\u00a0

Mayor Ray Allen asked how the increase would affect Rose and others against Kwik Star.

\"More traffic coming through there, more people coming through there. More lights, more parking spaces that are required, all those other things,\" Rose said. \"It's larger, and at what point does it stop?\"\u00a0

Resident Jim Savory said the development would have an impact on his home life.

\"When I sit down on my deck, I will overlook the entire Kwik Star property. I am very concerned not only with the 5,000, I'm concerned about the effect that it will have when we want to sit outside and grill or sit outside and have a cocktail,\" he said.\u00a0

After the meeting, Mayor pro-tem Dennis Gerard said the ordinance change would bring more balance between residential and commercial properties.

\"Right now we're heavily reliant on our residential tax base, and it's part of the economic development plan to continue to look for that,\" he said. \"Convenience stores are part of that, and clearly the model for convenience stores has changed in the past few years.\"

Gerard said the change was a small step intended to become competitive with the development of convenience stores, which has trended larger.\u00a0

The council voted 3-1 at its meeting January 20 to approve a letter asking Iowa Department of Transportation not to increase speed in four areas in the city.

IDOT wants to increase speed from 45 to 50 mph along Cody Road in the vicinity of Woodland Drive, Sycamore Drive, the I-80 westbound ramp and Riverview Heights.

The letter cites concerns, including a major roadway project on Sycamore Drive underway in response to housing growth in the area, the addition of the Kwik Star and a multi-use trail planned for the south side of Cody Road.

Councilor John Smith voted against the letter, saying that he did not want to completely reject the proposal.

ANDALUSIA \u2014\u00a0Snowstar Winter Sports Park is temporarily shut down because its chairlifts need to be inspected.

Tom Coe, chief ride inspector of the Illinois Department of Labor, confirmed that Tuesday, saying four chairlifts need to be inspected at the ski resort, which also offers tubing, snowboarding and zip lining.

A representative of the company could not immediately be reached for comment.

The facility will be closed \u201cuntil their inspections are completed and we finish up our inspections,\u201d Coe said. \u201cIf things work out in their favor, they may get done this week. It is depending on us finishing our inspection after they comply with the requirements.\u201d

Coe said the violation could involve fines, but declined to give additional details. He also declined to say if he thought the Illinois Department of Labor would fine Snowstar.

\u201cEvery piece of equipment they have is shut down,\u201d Coe said. \u201cThey were notified in writing this (Tuesday) morning.\u201d

Coe said there are some third-party inspections that need to be completed.

That does not necessarily mean the lifts are unsafe, only that \u201cthey need to complete their inspection compliance,\u201d he said.

Coe also oversees carnival rides, zip lines and any other kind of amusement device, he said.

DAVENPORT \u2014 Anyone affected by cancer is invited to the Figge Art Museum from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday to make feather art for a new cancer-themed opera.

The decorated paper feathers will be combined by artist and cancer survivor Gina Kirschbaum to create a six-foot wingspan, displayed in the lobby of Moline's Bartlett Performing Arts Center. That's where Jacob Bancks' opera \"Karkinos\" will premiere, in partnership with Living Proof Exhibit and\u00a0Quad City Symphony, on Sunday, May 10.

\"It's meant for anyone to come in who\u2019s been touched by cancer, to create a feather,\" Living Proof executive director Pamela Crouch said. \"What\u2019s beautiful is the opera is generating art that will go back to the cancer centers,\" at Genesis in Davenport and Trinity in Moline, she added, noting the Bartlett lobby also will feature other survivor art.

Kirschbaum, 54, of Bettendorf, first had stage-3 melanoma in 2008, which came back twice. A former para-educator for special-needs kids, she quit in 2013 after developing lymphedema (caused by radiation treatments).

\u201cJust creating something gives people a sense of meaning and accomplishment,\u201d Kirschbaum said. \u201cAfter not being able to work, I felt like I lost a sense of meaning and identity. It brought that back for me.\u201d

She's exhibited art with Living Proof starting in 2013, and has taught free art classes since 2015. \u201cIt\u2019s very relaxing, just to get your mind off what\u2019s going on. And the camaraderie, when people are sitting around, they have that in common,\" she said. \"But you don\u2019t have to talk about it. You can just sit and laugh.\"

For \u201cKarkinos,\u201d she painted a whimsical, six-foot circular sunset on the water, to be on stage. The feathers will represent the collective strength of cancer survivors, she said.\u00a0

In collaboration with Living Proof, which provides art therapy and exhibits for cancer survivors, the QCSO commissioned local composer and Augustana professor Jacob Bancks to create a dramatic work in English, \"Karkinos,\" that provides hope and celebration for those with cancer and all who love them.

Inspired by conversations with people impacted by cancer, this work featuring chamber orchestra, vocal soloists, and choir, depicts a beautiful empress who is forced into battle with the unseen monster Karkinos (an offstage choir, representing cancer) the night before her coronation.

\"It\u2019s pretty amazing. It\u2019s gorgeous,\" Crouch said of the music. The opera will feature Sarah Shafer as the Empress (soprano), Kelly Hill as the Maid (mezzo soprano), and Nathaniel Sullivan as the Angel (baritone). The maid represents a cancer survivor, and the angel reflects the medical community. Bancks wrote the libretto as well.

QCSO music director Mark Russell Smith will conduct an orchestra of 15, and 2017 University of Illinois grad Madelyn Gunn (daughter of opera and musical-theater baritone Nathan Gunn) will do stage direction.

\"It\u2019s really excellent\u00a0 \u2014 I\u2019m excited to see the premiere,\" QCSO executive director Brian Baxter said. \"It's a true community collaboration. Living Proof does much great work in visual art therapy. To include a lot of that as part of the performance, it\u2019s going to be really powerful.\"

The opera is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, Iowa Arts Council, Genesis Health System, UnityPoint Health-Trinity, Quad City Arts, Scott County Regional Authority, Moline Foundation, and Iowa Cancer Consortium.

Kirschbaum hopes it will provide strength and optimism. \u201cLife goes on, that there\u2019s way more to the diagnosis than the illness.

\u201cI feel like it\u2019s almost been a blessing for me,\u201d she added. \u201cIt\u2019s given me a lot of opportunities with my art. I wouldn\u2019t have ever tried otherwise. I wouldn\u2019t have had the courage.\u201d

DES MOINES \u2014 With Sen. Amy Klobuchar tied up in the Senate impeachment trial, Iowa legislators who support the Minnesota Democrat rallied for her Tuesday at the Capitol.

\u201cWe\u2019re ready to make her presence felt through us,\u201d Sen. Liz Mathis, D-Hiawatha, said at a Statehouse news conference that featured 15 lawmakers who have endorsed Klobuchar.

With arguments in President Donald Trump\u2019s impeachment trial underway, Klobuchar and other senators are required to be at their desks in the Senate chamber.

So it\u2019s left to \u201cAmy\u2019s army\u201d to campaign, the lawmakers said.

Among those endorsing Klobuchar are legislators who previously endorsed candidates who have dropped out of the 2020 Democratic presidential race.

Rep. Chris Hall, D-Sioux City, who worked for the Beto O\u2019Rourke campaign, is backing Klobuchar \u201cbecause she best understands the challenges and opportunities that Iowans have in front of them.\u201d

\u201cHer commitment to increase access to one- and two-year community college degrees and technical certifications will be transformative for people in my district and throughout Iowa,\u201d he said.

Rep. Monica Kurth, D-Davenport, had backed New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker but now is behind Klobuchar as well.

\u201cAmy understands how important it is to make one- and two-year degrees and technical certifications an accessible, exciting, and respected option for students, and she has developed the plan to do so,\u201d said Kurth, a former community college instructor.

Not all former Booker backers are moving to the Klobuchar camp. Reps. Jennifer Konfrst of Windsor Heights and Heather Matson of Ankeny announced they are backing Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

\u201cNothing is more important to me than electing a president who has a vision for ensuring everyone in our country has a chance at the American dream,\u201d Konfrst said.

\u201cAfter a long Iowa caucus campaign, Elizabeth Warren has emerged as the best candidate to defend our shared values, ensure opportunity for all and give a voice to those too often left behind,\u201d Matson said.

Separately, Sen. Rob Hogg, D-Cedar Rapids, announced his support for Klobuchar, citing her working family background, extensive experience on farm and rural issues, and strong commitment to civil rights.

\u201cLike many of our candidates, Klobuchar is a strong leader for climate action,\u201d said Hogg, who interviewed 19 Democratic candidates in \u201cclimate conversations\u201d during the monthslong lead-up to the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses Feb. 3. Klobuchar\u2019s visits to flood-affected parts of Iowa convinced Hogg \u201cshe knows that Americans today are already being hurt by climate-related disasters\u201d and has a plan to \u201clay the foundation for even more action on climate at home and around the world in the decade of the 2020s.\u201d

Other sitting legislators supporting Klobuchar are Sens. Kevin Kinney, Rich Taylor and Todd Taylor, and Reps. Marti Anderson, Bruce Bearinger, Karin Derry, Molly Donahue, Ruth Ann Gaines, Charlie McConkey, Andy McKean, Sharon Steckman and Cindy Winckler.

DES MOINES \u2014 Vaping would be outlawed for everyone in most of Iowa\u2019s public places and illegal anywhere in the state for those under 21, according to measures that advanced Tuesday in separate Senate subcommittees.

Supporters said the changes are needed to keep people safe and make sure Iowa doesn\u2019t lose federal grants by having a legal age of 18, which is at odds with a new U.S. law of 21.

\u201cWe don\u2019t want to depend on the FBI to come and enforce local smoking laws,\u201d said Sen. Herman Quirmbach, D-Ames, in supporting legislation proposing to raise the legal age to 21 for buying, possessing or using tobacco, vapor or other nicotine products.

Vaping industry officials argued their product is different from cigarettes and should not be equated with secondhand smoke risks by coming under Iowa\u2019s smoke-free air act.

The 3-0 Senate State Government subcommittee decision came on the heels of federal legislation that bans nationwide the sale of tobacco products and e-cigarettes to anyone under 21. Backers of the Iowa legislation said the state could be at risk of losing nearly $4 million in block grants if state officials do not follow suit.

Senate Study Bill 3016 would prohibit a person from selling, giving or supplying any tobacco, tobacco products, alternative nicotine products, vapor products or cigarettes to anyone under 21. It also bars those who are 20 or younger from smoking, using, possessing, purchasing or attempting to purchase those products.

If passed by the Senate and House as a way of heading off what health officials have called a \u201cvaping epidemic\u201d among high school students, the bill would take effect immediately upon the signature of Gov. Kim Reynolds.

Public health advocates praised the proposal, saying it would be a good first step in helping reduce kids\u2019 access to vaping products as well as their ability to get them from older friends or acquaintances.

Four middle-school students from DeWitt linked through an online video hookup were among those who favored SSB 3016 as a way to limit \u201csocial access\u201d for kids who get vaping products from online sources. No one spoke in opposition to the change.

However, Mike Triplett, a lobbyist with Iowans For Alternatives to Smoking and Tobacco representing a trade association of vape shops, cautioned senators against going beyond the bill\u2019s parameters or \u201ctinkering\u201d with definitions that might have unintended consequences for Iowa businesses.

Earlier in the day, Triplett and other vaping industry officials spoke in opposition to a separate measure, SSB 3052, that would bring vapor products as well as environmental tobacco smoke under the enforcement umbrella of the state\u2019s smoke-free air act that has been in place for more than a decade.

\u201cWe don\u2019t think that vapor should be treated the same as secondhand tobacco smoke,\u201d Triplett told a Senate Human Resources subcommittee. \u201cThe science is not there for vapor, let alone secondhand vapor.\u201d

Travis Puls, who owns Atmosphere Vapors in Grinnell, told senators that \u201csmoke and vapor are very different.\u201d

Corey Halfhill, president and chief executive officer of Central Iowa Vapors, which has 11 stores employing up to 75 people, said applying smoke-free air act regulations to vaping \u201cis something that could drastically affect our business as well as the employment.\u201d

Nathan Blake, a deputy Iowa Attorney General, offered a similar caution, telling senators that \u201cAttorney General (Tom) Miller is always concerned when regulations equate cigarette smoke with vaping because one is much more harmful than the other.\u201d

Others credited vaping with helping Iowans quit smoking cigarettes.

However, public health advocates applauded the measure and called for expanding them to include vaping in state-regulated casinos and of marijuana and other plant products intended for inhalation.

Quirmbach said he feared enforcement of Iowa\u2019s clean indoor air regulations would be hampered if some Iowans were barred from smoking cigarettes but others were allowed to vape in the same places.

\u201cWe have enough evidence already to be wary of introducing this product into public spaces,\u201d he said. \u201cThe burden of proof should be on the industry to prove that it is safe.\u201d

A roundup of campaign news items of interest for Tuesday:

YOUTH STRAW POLL JAN. 28: The latest Iowa Youth Straw Poll has been scheduled for Tuesday, January 28, less than a week before the February 3, first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses. The event is put on by Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate.

In the event, students at participating Iowa schools will cast votes in races for president, U.S. Senate and U.S. House. All public and private schools are invited to participate, as are home-schooled students.

\u201cWe want to get students excited about voting and civic engagement and I think the results will be very interesting with the straw poll taking place so close to the caucuses,\u201d Pate said in a news release. \u201cHistorically, the Youth Straw Poll has been a pretty good indicator of the state of the races at that point.\u201d

Pate said the top vote-getters in the fall Youth Straw Poll were Democrat Bernie Sanders and Republican Donald Trump.

Pate’s office invited the candidates to produce videos for the event. They are available on the office’s YouTube page and online at elections101.org.

STATE LAWMAKERS ENDORSE WARREN: State lawmakers Jennifer Konfrst and Heather Matson are among more than 25 new endorsements from central Iowa elected officials and political leaders for Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren.

\u201cI was called to action in this presidential race by a message of civic grace and common purpose, and a sincere desire to heal our country,\u201d Matson said in a statement provided by the Warren campaign. \u201cAnd after a long Iowa caucus campaign, Elizabeth Warren has emerged as the best candidate to defend our shared values, ensure opportunity for all and give a voice to those too often left behind.\u201d

The list of new central Iowa endorsers includes city council members, school board members, and county party officials.

DNC MEMBER ENDORSES BIDEN: Sandy Opstvedt, an Iowa representative to the Democratic National Committee and a local labor leader, endorsed Joe Biden\u2019s Democratic presidential campaign.

\u201cJoe Biden has always\u00a0\u2014 and will always\u00a0\u2014 stand up for labor in Iowa and across the country, because that\u2019s who he is,\u201d Opstvedt said in a statement provided by the Biden campaign. \u201cAs president, Joe will fight for higher wages and good-paying jobs, strengthen social security and Medicare, and build on Obamacare. And when he beats Donald Trump in November, Joe will bring honesty, decency, and respect for workers back to the White House.\u201d

SCOTT COUNTY OFFICIAL ENDORSES KLOBUCHAR: Scott County recorder Rita Vargas endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar. Vargas is the highest-ranking elected Latino elected official in Iowa.

\u201cAmy Klobuchar has the right skills, experience, and vision to lead our country right now,\u201d Vargas said in a statement distributed by the Klobuchar campaign. \u201cShe\u2019s committed to bringing people together over our shared values, she\u2019s crafted bold and achievable policy plans, and she has the track record to get these plans passed through Congress.\u201d

RECORD-MAKING OFFICIAL ENDORSES SANDERS: Dionna Langford, who was the youngest school board member in Des Moines history when she was elected in 2014, endorsed Bernie Sanders\u2019 Democratic presidential campaign.

\u201cWhen I first ran, I think my bank account may have been in the negative. I had no political experience. There\u2019s a way that we say that you\u2019re supposed to do politics: You sit down with these people, you have these conversations,\u201d Langford says in a video produced by the Sanders campaign. \u201cOne of the many things that has attracted me to Sen. Sanders\u2019 campaign is our political system shouldn\u2019t operate that way. It shouldn\u2019t be for those who just have affluence, it shouldn\u2019t be for those who are just well-connected.\u201d

STATE LAWMAKERS ENDORSE MILLER-MEEKS: Ken Rozenboom and Holly Brink, state lawmakers from Oskaloosa, endorsed Mariannette Miller-Meeks, a Republican primary candidate in eastern Iowa\u2019s 2nd Congressional District.

\u201cI have fought tirelessly in the legislature to protect the unborn because it reflects one of my deepest core values,\u201d Rozenboom said in a statement distributed by the Miller-Meeks campaign. \u201cTo me, this issue is personal. I want someone in Congress who will never waver on this issue and that is why I am proud to support Mariannette for Congress. She\u2019ll never quit fighting for all Iowans\u00a0\u2014 born and unborn.\u201d

STORYLINES

\u2022 Iowa, ranked 19th in this week\u2019s Associated Press poll, has won three straight games with the most recent victory being a 90-83 conquest of Michigan on Friday. Luka Garza scored 33 points with CJ Fredrick adding 21 and Joe Wieskamp 20. Garza was named the Big Ten player of the week and Fredrick was the league\u2019s freshman of the week.

\u2022 Rutgers has won eight of its last nine games and broke into the AP Top 25 this week for the first time since 1979. The 24th-rated Scarlet Knights, now 58-58 in their fourth season under coach Steve Pikiell, already have matched last season\u2019s victory total and could be headed for their first NCAA tournament berth in 29 years.

\u2022 Rutgers does not have a player averaging more than 12 points per game but it has seven players averaging 6.9 or more and it leads the Big Ten in scoring defense and field goal percentage defense. Its top player, junior Geo Baker, has been coming off the bench since missing three games with a broken left thumb.

IOWA CITY \u2014 Back when Fran McCaffery was in college, Rutgers was pretty good.

The Scarlet Knights went 22-9 in the 1978-79 season and finished that campaign rated 18th in the Associated Press poll.

They hadn\u2019t been ranked since. Until this week.

The Knights popped into the Top 25 at No. 24 on Monday and will take the court with a national ranking next to their name for the first time in 40 years when they visit McCaffery's 19th-ranked Iowa team on Wednesday night at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Even if Rutgers didn\u2019t have that number next to its name, McCaffery knew his team was going to have its hands full with what is almost unquestionably the most improved team in the Big Ten.

\u201cThey play really hard,\u2019\u2019 McCaffery said. \u201cThey're physical. They have depth. Not a lot of drop-off when they go to the bench at all. They have size. They're contesting you at the rim as well as putting pressure on the ball.\u2019\u2019

McCaffery has known Rutgers coach Steve Pikiell for a long time, dating back to Pikiell\u2019s decade as the head coach at Stony Brook. He knew there was a good chance his friend would get Rutgers pointed in the right direction after the Knights won only nine conference games in their first four years in the Big Ten.

It has taken him four years, but Pikiell has the Scarlet Knights sniffing their first NCAA tournament berth in 29 years.

\u201cI think he came in with a plan and wanted to build it the right way,\u2019\u2019 McCaffery said. \u201cWasn't trying to do it very quickly. He got the guys he wanted to play the way he wants to play, and he's got a group that's buying into what he's teaching.

\u201cIt has been impressive what they've done, but keep in mind they were kind of bounced around as a program. They were in the Atlantic 10, the Big East, and back to the old Eastern 8 or whatever it was back in those days. I think they found a home now in terms of being able to recruit to a Big Ten program.\u2019\u2019

Rutgers currently is tied for second in the Big Ten at 5-2 and is 14-4 overall although 13 of those wins have come at home in Piscataway, New Jersey.

In their first three years under Pikiell, the Scarlet Knights won only two games against teams ranked in the top 40 in the country in the KenPom rankings. This season they\u2019ve won five.

They have a shot at a sixth Wednesday. Iowa currently is No. 15.

Their swift ascent hasn\u2019t been a total shock to players who took the court against them in the past few seasons. Iowa center Luka Garza remembers that Rutgers came into Iowa City last March and ruined Nicholas Baer\u2019s Senior Day.

\u201cThey\u2019ve got a lot of talented guys on their roster,\u2019\u2019 Iowa forward Joe Wieskamp said. \u201cThey brought in some grad transfers and a few different pieces that are really talented and they\u2019re playing really well together right now. They\u2019re playing to their strengths, I guess. They\u2019re obviously not a good shooting team, but they are a really good defensive team that creates turnovers, which means transition buckets.\u2019\u2019

It\u2019s the defense that has the Hawkeyes most concerned. The Scarlet Knights lead the Big Ten in both scoring defense and field goal percentage defense.

\u201cThey have one of the better defenses in the country, not just the league,\u2019\u2019 Garza said. \u201cThat\u2019s the biggest challenge for us is just handling their intensity at that end. It\u2019s been impressive scouting them just seeing how they get up into teams and take them out of what they want to do.\u2019\u2019

The Knights don\u2019t have a lot of stars with big offensive numbers. No one averages more than 12 points per game. Probably their best player is junior point guard Geo Baker and he\u2019s not even starting right now after missing three games with a broken thumb.

What the Knights mostly are is physical. Really, really physical.

\u201cRough team \u2026 always aggressive all the time,\u2019\u2019 Iowa freshman Joe Toussaint said. \u201cThey just try to get up into your space and just try to mug you and stuff.\u2019\u2019

Wieskamp said the Hawkeyes have been trying to replicate that as much as possible in practice to get ready for the bruising battle they\u2019ll face Wednesday.

\u201cWatching games from last year, they\u2019re bumping you off cuts, constantly in your space, trying to create those turnovers,\u2019\u2019 Wieskamp said. \u201cYou\u2019ve just got to be strong with the ball.\u2019\u2019

DES MOINES \u2014 A pair of Johnson County vegetable growers asked state lawmakers Tuesday to approve changes that would free them from county regulations they see as a barrier to small-scale agriculture.

\u201cWe would like young farmers, like us, to be able to buy land and get started farming on small acreages and be able to do that without unnecessary barriers,\u201d Carmen Black of Sundog Farm & Local Harvest CSA north of Solon told the House State Government Committee.

Black and Kate Edwards of Wild Woods Farm south of Solon called on legislators to approve House Study Bill 239 (https://www.legis.iowa.gov/legislation/BillBook?ga=88&ba=hsb239), which they helped draft. Under the bill, if at least 51 percent of the annual gross revenue from a property comes from the growing, harvesting or selling of crops and livestock, it would be considered a farm regardless of how large it is.

State law, they said, is clear that farms are defined by use, not acreage. However, Johnson County for years had a \u201chard 40\u201d rule that required farms to be at least 40 acres to qualify for exemptions from building permits, for example. For many young farmers, buying 40 acres is cost prohibitive, Edwards and Black said.

Under a change this month, farms smaller than 40 acres may apply for an exemption, but approval is at the discretion of the zoning director and board, according to Nate Mueller, assistant director of Johnson County Planning, Development and Sustainability.

\u201cNow we look at the use of the property,\u201d Mueller said, and an exemption may be granted \u201cif the nature of the use of the property is farming.\u201d

In a handout to legislators, Black and Edwards said \u201csmall-scale farming ventures need the agricultural zoning exemption granted to larger farms, and need to have it expanded to include modern-day agricultural experience activities such as on-farm education, events and markets that allow for consumers to experience the farm.\u201d

The 2020 Quad Cities Experience Guide is now available for area residents.

Tourism officials say this year\u2019s annual guide has a new direction, in part thanks to the inclusion of writing from at least four local writers on the topics of craft breweries; local arts, theater and dance scene; the region\u2019s golf courses; and live music.

The writers are Deborah Davis, a local blogger known as QC Ale Girl; Jonathan Turner, arts/entertainment reporter for the Dispatch-Argus and Times; Tom Johnston, sports reporter for the Dispatch-Argus and Times; and Tyson Danner, executive director at the River Music Experience in Davenport.

\u201cThe new format gives a voice to the Quad Cities story. Stories that are told by the people that live, work, and play here,\u201d said Charlotte Doehler-Morrison, vice president of marketing and communications for Visit Quad Cities, in a news release.

\u201cThe guide gives us the ability to disseminate more in-depth information on our bi-state region into the hands of residents and visitors. The guide is also used by local businesses when recruiting new employees and for relocation departments at some of our major realty companies.\u201d

The 56-page guide includes a comprehensive directory of local attractions, dining and entertainment, among other options. It is complimentary and can be ordered online at www.visitquadcities.com or viewed online in a digital format. Area residents can also pick up a copy, if they so desire, at the Visit Quad Cities Visitor Center, 1601 River Drive, Suite 110 in Moline.

2. Free speech or hate speech? Yard display depicts mannequin gunning down Democrats

\"012120-qc-nws-democraticdisplay-001\"

A Davenport resident created a display depicting violence against the Sen. Bernie Sanders campaign Monday along Telegraph Road.

A man whose snow figure display on his front lawn includes a mannequin gunning down Democrats says the exhibit is \u201cjust fun and games.\u201d

Local leaders are condemning the display in the 2100 block of Telegraph Road, and Mayor Mike Matson said he's asked the chief of police to look into it. Still, some said there\u2019s nothing the city can do because the exhibit is protected free speech.

The display was put up by homeowner Donald Hesseltine. It depicts a military-garbed mannequin with a chainsaw, a can of Busch Light and an assault rifle firing at a snowman wearing a \u201cBernie 2020\u201d T-shirt. Read more.

4. Rock Island County to vote on allowing refugees to settle in the county defying Trump's executive order

\"090919-qct-qca-bbq-007.jpg\"

Rock Island County Republican chairman Drue Mielke speaks at the Rock Island County Republicans Ronald Reagan BBQ event at Pinnacle Country Club in Milan, Sunday, Sept. 8, 2019.

Rock Island County\u00a0Board members will vote today on a measure that would allow refugee resettlement in the county, defying an executive order from President Donald Trump.\u00a0

Trump issued an executive order Sept. 26 declaring that unless states, counties and municipalities provide specific consent for resettlement, refugees will not be allowed to settle there.

In Rock Island County, the issue came up during the Jan. 13 meeting of the county board's governance, health and administration committee. The committee approved a measure allowing refugee resettlement and advanced it to the full board for consideration.

If the measure passes today, board members will send a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stating Rock Island County will continue to accept refugees. A federal judge in Maryland temporarily blocked Trump's executive order Jan. 15, but the county board members still plan to send the letter to Pompeo. Read more.

With Boffeli held to a season-low 13 points, North Scott got contributions from freshman Hattie Hagedorn (13 points) and junior Sam Scott (11 points).

Freshman Annie Wirth scored 18 points as the Maple Leafs continue to command the Western Big Six in a 67-43 win over Galesburg, followed up by wins over Kewanee, Peoria Manual and Bureau Valley at the Kewanee MLK Tournament. Wirth is just the latest freshman to make an impact for the Maple Leafs, joining Danielle Beach.

3. Rock Island (18-6, LW: 5)

4. Moline (16-6, LW: 3)

The Maroons couldn't take advantage of an early lead in a 67-51 loss to Rock Island. Since point guard Kadence Tatum suffered an ACL injury against Geneseo, Moline is 4-6 and is scoring 11 fewer points per game.

This week: Thursday at Sterling; Saturday at United Township

WHAT WE KNOW: Mike Larson and Pat Hardi of Orion have been in a dispute with the village over their nine cats kept in their 4,000-square-foot shop. Last January, Henry County Associate Judge Dana McReynolds ruled in favor of the couple, allowing them to keep the cats, though the village wanted to limit them to three. The village took the case to the Third District Appellate Court.

WHAT'S NEW: Village president James Cooper announced Monday that the appellate court has ruled in favor of the village. He said Larson and Hardi have 35 days from the date of the ruling to either accept it or file for additional consideration to the Illinois Supreme Court. He noted the case had been before the courts for three years. \"I'm going to withhold any additional comment on that issue,\" Cooper said.

WHAT'S NEXT: The village has been in negotiations with the Peterson family over the building at 1000 4th Street for a new village hall. On Monday, the village went into closed session to talk about purchasing property for a new village hall, but they came out of the session and took no action.

During a discussion of streets, Trustee Steve Newman said 5th and 7th streets are the most dangerous for runners and walkers, and suggested widening either the sidewalks or the roads.

Rock Island County\u00a0Board members will vote Tuesday on a measure that would allow refugee resettlement in the county, defying an executive order from President Donald Trump.\u00a0

Trump issued an executive order Sept. 26 declaring that unless states, counties and municipalities provide specific consent for resettlement, refugees will not be allowed to settle there.

In Rock Island County, the issue came up during the Jan. 13 meeting of the county board's governance, health and administration committee. The committee approved a measure allowing refugee resettlement and advanced it to the full board for consideration.

If the measure passes Tuesday, board members will send a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stating Rock Island County will continue to accept refugees.\u00a0

A federal judge in Maryland temporarily blocked Trump's executive order Jan. 15, but the county board members still plan to send the letter to Pompeo.

\"Even the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce is backing this action because they recognize the economic impact these (refugee) programs have on our area, including with population,\" board Chairman Richard Brunk said Jan. 13.\u00a0

Board member Drue Mielke, who also is chairman of the Rock Island County Republicans, voiced his support for accepting refugees.\u00a0

\"This is something I am for,\" Mielke said. \"How do we know we have the capacity (for refugees) and are we going to work with the municipal government? How does this roll out?\"

World Relief Director Laura Fontaine told committee members the refugee organization already has letters of consent from Ill. Gov. J.B. Pritzker, Moline Mayor Stephanie Acri, Rock Island Mayor Mike Thoms and State Rep. Mike Halpin, D-Rock Island.\u00a0

\"The last part of this is to get county approval,\" Fontaine said. \"The refugee numbers have decreased significantly. We are looking at not even getting 100 refugees this next year in our area. We accept anybody, even regardless of your religion. If anybody needs help, we'll help them.\"

Fontaine said refugees are revitalizing communities in Illinois that have lost population. According to the New American Economy, she said, refugees have paid $319.2 million in state and local taxes in Illinois.\u00a0

\"There are a lot of misunderstandings,\" Fontaine said. \"Refugees are invited by the U.S. government. They have Social Security numbers; they work. Their kids are going to school, and they want to be contributing members to our city and county. If we do not get county consent, we will not be able to settle refugees here, meaning our office will probably close.

\"This allows (refugees) to have a new beginning. These are displaced people either from war, religious persecution, social, economic and political persecution.\"

Fontaine said the United States accepts a lower number of refugees than other countries do. Turkey and Germany take in the most per year. She said the Trump administration has lowered the refugee limit to 18,000 arrivals per year,\u00a0\"the lowest it's been in the history of the United States.\"

During the Jan. 15 meeting of the county board's committee of the whole meeting, resident Bill Long asked board members to reconsider welcoming refugees. Long cited statistics from the Center for Immigration Studies, saying refugees from the Middle East cost taxpayers $64,370 in the first five years after their arrival.\u00a0

\"This county is not in any financial position to take the risk of having more people come in here to depend on us in order to get by,\" Long said. \"We have homeless people and veterans we're trying to take care of. If you pass this motion, you're going to be part of the problem. We are flat broke; we have been for 10 years. What we don't need is one, two or five refugees resettling here. We just don't have the dollars.

\"I'm asking you not to get caught up in some feel-good motion just because it feels good to save them,\" Long said.\u00a0

East Moline resident Jan Aguirre echoed Long's comments and asked board members to reject refugee resettlement. She said the county is \"awash in financial payouts without adding refugees to the equation. Should we not be taking care of our own homeless and poverty-stricken citizens before we include refugees who will burden taxpayers further?\"

Aguirre said the matter of whether Rock Island County should accept refugees should be put on the ballot and left to voters to decide.\u00a0

\"Refugees should not be shoved down our throats at people who actually live here without their knowledge,\" Aguirre said. \"I find this unconscionable.\"

East Moline resident Jim Martin said the average refugee only has 10.5 years of schooling.\u00a0

\"When your son or daughter goes out to find a job, guess what? They're also in competition with these people,\" Martin said. \"I don't see how Rock Island County can afford this. It's a drag on social services.\"

Board member Kai Swanson said voting against continuing to accept refugees would be a \"tragic disgrace.\"

Board member Dorothy Beck noted refugees would be counted in the 2020 census, thereby helping Rock Island County.\u00a0

IOWA CITY \u2014 When Jordan Bohannon was ruled out for the remainder of the season, there was concern among many Iowa basketball backers about those crucial late-game situations in which someone needs to step up and take command.

Bohannon has always been the master of those situations. There have been innumerable times in recent seasons in which he stepped forward to take \u2014 and very often make \u2014 big shots in big situations.

So, who has stepped into the role of go-to guy? The better question is: Who hasn\u2019t?

Luka Garza, Joe Wieskamp, Connor McCaffery and even Ryan Kriener have made big shots this season and perhaps no one has made more of them lately than redshirt freshman CJ Fredrick.

Garza and Fredrick delivered so often in the clutch last week that the Hawkeyes swept the Big Ten\u2019s weekly awards Monday.

Garza, who scored 60 points in victories over Michigan and Northwestern, was named the league\u2019s player of the week for the second time this season. And Fredrick, who returned from a foot injury to score 32 points in the two wins, was honored as the Big Ten\u2019s freshman of the week.

Oh, and after being out of the Associated Press Top 25 for the past two weeks, the Hawkeyes jumped back into the poll at No. 19, third best among Big Ten teams.

It wasn\u2019t just how many points Garza and Fredrick scored last week. It was when they scored them.

When the Hawkeyes fell behind Michigan 72-65 in the middle of the second half Friday, Fredrick nailed a transition 3 to stop the Wolverines\u2019 momentum. Shortly after that, there was a 10-0 scoring run in which Garza scored seven points but the biggest shot was another Fredrick 3 that put the Hawkeyes ahead for good.

Fredrick scored again on a feed from Wieskamp, Kriener knocked down a 3 and Wieskamp and Fredrick finished off the Wolverines with free throws.

\u201cIt just felt, with the way the game was going, I needed to start making plays,\u2019\u2019 Fredrick said with a shrug.

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery watched Fredrick do things like this in helping Covington Catholic win the 2018 Kentucky state title.

\u201cIt's kind of what he's always done,\u2019\u2019 McCaffery said. \u201cSo when I say I'm not surprised, I'm not just saying that because I love the kid, which I do. He has been a gamer like that his whole life.

\u201cHuge shots, big games, road atmosphere, sold-out buildings \u2026 Rupp Arena, 15,000 people, 33 points, state championship game. This is what he does.\u2019\u2019

Kriener began referring to Fredrick as \u201cCaptain Clutch\u2019\u2019 after he hit some big shots early in the season against Texas Tech and again against Cincinnati.

Obviously, Garza has been a go-to guy all season, too. He has led the Big Ten in scoring almost from the very beginning and he scored 14 straight points in the middle of the second half against Northwestern last week to turn a competitive game into a rout.

But there is no shortage of players on this team who are willing and able to step up and do Bohannon-esque things when needed.

\u201cThere\u2019s a lot of guys that are capable,\u2019\u2019 Wieskamp said. \u201cEveryone knows about Jordan\u2019s late-game clutchness, I guess you could call it, but we all take it upon ourselves. It\u2019s not going to be just one guy. We\u2019re a team with a lot of threats.\u2019\u2019

Up to No. 19: As mentioned, the Hawkeyes returned to the AP Top 25 on Monday at No. 19 with 11 of the 14 Big Ten teams receiving votes in the poll.

Michigan State topped the list at No. 11 with Maryland 17th, Illinois 21st and Rutgers 24th. The Scarlet Knights, who will visit Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Wednesday, are ranked for the first time in 40 years.

Home sweet home: Homecourt advantage in Big Ten play continues to be a big topic of conversation even though some are saying the conference always has been this way.

The home team always has won more than it has lost but not to this extreme. Going into Tuesday\u2019s action, home teams are 42-7 in league play for a winning percentage of .857.

Last season, Big Ten teams won at a .621 rate (87-53). The year before that it was .642 (81-45). In 2016-17, it was .611 (77-49).

Maybe things will even out as the season progresses. Or maybe not.

\u201cThis year in the Big Ten it seems like every time you\u2019re at home you\u2019re supposed to win,\u2019\u2019 Fredrick said. \u201cRoad games are just so hard to win. It\u2019s almost as if you have to win these home games.\u2019\u2019

Just having fun: You may have noticed Garza playfully blowing kisses to the crowd in the midst of his big second-half splurge last week at Northwestern.

\u201cThere were some fans, I think some football players from Northwestern, that were talking to me and Cordell (Pemsl) throughout the second half,\u2019\u2019 Garza explained. \u201cI just had a little fun with them.\u2019\u2019

Moss honored: Former Hawkeye Isaiah Moss was named the Big 12 newcomer of the week Monday after making six 3-pointers and scoring 20 points for Kansas in his first start of the season at Oklahoma.

IOWA CITY\u00a0\u2014 Tuesday is more than the start of spring semester classes at Iowa.

It\u2019s also the start of a new football season, the first time coach Kirk Ferentz huddles with players who will comprise the bulk of the Hawkeyes\u2019 2020 roster.

He\u2019ll lay out his vision for the upcoming year, referencing the work and leadership that led Iowa to a 10-3 finish in 2019, work that started a year ago this month with offseason strength and conditioning work that the 2020 team will begin this week.

Ferentz will likely point out that the 19 seniors who completed their careers with a 49-24 rout of USC in the Holiday Bowl had a lot of to do with Iowa winning 47 games over the past five seasons, the best five-year win mark in Hawkeye history and a mark topped by only eight other Football Bowl Subdivision programs.

He wants his \u201cnew team\u2019\u2019 to appreciate what it took to make that happen as they begin working toward the own success.

\u201cScotch tape and paper clips, that\u2019s who we are,\u2019\u2019 Ferentz said, referring to the developmental aspects of the Iowa program and his desire to craft lineups on both sides of the ball built around the strengths of available personnel at any given point in time.

Ferentz pointed out how growth by Hawkeye receivers shifted the focus of the passing game away from tight ends last season and how development at linebacker impacted how often a player at the \u201ccash\u2019\u2019 position was used by Iowa on defense last season.

\u201cWe\u2019re always looking to get the best guys out there,\u2019\u2019 Ferentz said.

Iowa will begin 2020 with a frontrunner in the race to replace three-year starter Nate Stanley at quarterback.

Spencer Petras, who completed 6 of 10 passes in three games last fall, is positioned to be the Hawkeyes\u2019 next starter.

\u201cI think Spencer, especially in December, he looked like a college quarterback,\u2019\u2019 Ferentz said. \u201cWe do competitive stuff against each other. All of us were pleased with what we saw, the growth. He seems to have all the right attributes. Now, it\u2019s a matter of him getting himself ready and then going out and competing.\u2019\u2019

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound sophomore brings a strong arm and the same pro-style approach to the position that allowed Stanley to thrive. With the transfer of junior Peyton Mansell to FCS-level Abilene Christian, Alex Padilla will be the only other scholarship quarterback in the program until freshman Deuce Hogan arrives in June.

\u201cSpencer\u2019s been here for two years and he has a good grasp on what we\u2019re doing,\u2019\u2019 Ferentz said. \u201cAlex hasn\u2019t been here as long but he\u2019s done a good job of paying attention. We\u2019ll let them go out and compete.\u2019\u2019

Ferentz said the expectations for improvement won\u2019t change as Petras settles in.

\u201cI think going into this year my assessment is Petras is the next guy up,\u2019\u2019 Ferentz said. \u201cHe\u2019s going to have to earn it every day. He\u2019s there, but he\u2019s like everyone else on the roster. If you\u2019re there, you\u2019ve got to keep it there. That\u2019s part of the fun of it, to see how everyone is going to do, how everyone is going to react.\u2019\u2019

Ferentz said Petras should benefit from one thing Stanley did not have to work with as a new starter.

\u201cWe clearly have a better group of wide receivers than we had a couple of years ago. Petras is walking into a good situation,\u2019\u2019 Ferentz said. \u201cBut, he\u2019s got the most important job on the offense. He has to be able to deliver. He\u2019s prepared himself well and I think he\u2019ll handle the challenges that are awaiting him.\u2019\u2019

Petras will also benefit from the return of Alaric Jackson for his senior season at offensive tackle and from the promise Ferentz sees in Mark Kallenberger and Kyler Schott, who both started at guard in the Holiday Bowl.

Ferentz labeled Jackson\u2019s decision to use his final year of eligibility \u201ca step in maturity,\u2019\u2019 as part of an offensive line that will include four returning starters.

\u201cI think he sensed he needs this year. \u2026 He came to that conclusion on his own and I\u2019m very proud of him for doing that,\u2019\u2019 Ferentz said.

Kallenberger, a junior from Bettendorf, has started at tackle but made his first career start at guard in the Holiday Bowl following productive December practices.

\u201cMark\u2019s three years into it where I think he\u2019s got the hang of things a little bit,\u2019\u2019 Ferentz said. \u201cHe\u2019s gotten a feel for the tempo and what he needs to do. It\u2019s really in his hands right now. I think he\u2019s got the experience and knowledge that are necessary.\u2019\u2019

ROCK ISLAND \u2014 Last March, Hannah Demarest of Bettendorf got a new heart in a Chicago transplant, to cure her hypoplastic left-heart syndrome.

The 23-year-old Pleasant Valley alum didn\u2019t lack for heart before the long-awaited operation. She and her friends with Penguin Project Quad Cities have shown it to the world.\u00a0

\u201cI feel much better,\u201d said Demarest, who plays Lioness in the new Penguin production of \u201cLion King Jr.\u201d at Augustana\u2019s Brunner Theatre.

The show opens Friday and includes 45 area students with special needs, accompanied by shadow student mentors.

\u201cMy stamina wasn\u2019t there,\u201d she said of the birth defect that affects blood flow. \u201cAfter the transplant, my stamina skyrocketed.\u201d

\u201cThis girl\u2019s strong,\u201d said Kimberly Walljasper, 15, a Davenport North student, and her Penguin mentor for the third year. They started rehearsing in September and met twice a week at the Center for Living Arts, 220 19th St., Rock Island. Center co-owner Dino Hayz directs the show with his wife, Tina.

Since the transplant, Demarest is a \u201ccompletely different person,\u201d he said. \u201cShe\u2019s always been happy to be there, and sweet. Now, she\u2019s so energetic and happy to be there.\u201d

Her first Penguin year \u2014 2018\u2019s \u201cBeauty and the Beast Jr.\u201d was \u201cscary but good,\u201d Demarest said. \u201cI did my junior high production of \u2018Groovy,\u2019\u201d in 8th grade, noting she didn\u2019t know any theater in high school.

\u201cI like finding new friends and old ones,\u201d she said. \u201cIt\u2019s really good.\u201d

\u201cShe can really shine and have me as backup, so it\u2019s not as scary,\u201d Kimberly said. \u201cI\u2019m there for you; I got you.\u201d

Penguins who can soar

Named for the flightless bird, The Penguin Project was founded in 2004 by pediatrician Andy Morgan in Peoria, and grown into a national program with 43 chapters in 16 states, including six others in Illinois and another in Des Moines. It offers a supportive environment for young people, ages 11-22, with disabilities to explore creative talents.

Participation in the performing arts \u201chas therapeutic value by enhancing social interaction, communication skills, self-confidence and self-esteem,\u201d according to penguinproject.org.

Jeff Coussens, chair of Augustana College\u2019s theater department, asked Dino Hayz to run the local program in partnership with the private liberal-arts college, the only such collaboration among Penguins nationwide.

The Penguin Project has literally grown as well. The first year (2017), there were 30 students (half with special needs) in \u201cAnnie Jr.\u201d That more than doubled to 76 in the second year, and 90 the past two years.

They\u2019ve expanded performances, from one weekend the first year, to two ever since, with six total performances. This year they sold out the 260-seat theater within a half hour.

Families are \u201cso excited to see their kids do something they never dreamed they\u2019d be able to do,\u201d Coussens said. \u201cWe remain one of the Quad-Cities\u2019 best-kept secrets. We don\u2019t even print posters anymore because we don\u2019t need them.\u201d

Due to demand, he\u2019s starting a second troupe, the Penguin Players, for ages 16 or older, who will perform \u201cGodspell Jr.\u201d in June at the center. \u201cThere\u2019s an overlap between ages of 17 and 22,\u201d Coussens said of the Penguin groups, noting artists have to choose between the two.

\u201cPart of the logic behind that is to keep our numbers where we are,\u201d he said of the main group. \u201cOnce they graduate out, they\u2019ve got no other program like that, so Penguin Players was started.\u201d

For the first time, Augie will simulcast the Penguin Project performances in Centennial Hall, 3703 7th Ave., at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 25 and 1:30 p.m. Jan. 26. Tickets for the simulcast cost $5, available at augustana.edu/arts/ticket-office or 309-794-7306.

In two seasons at North Iowa Area Community College, basketball has become a different game for Trey Sampson.

\u201cTotally different,\u2019\u2019 Sampson said. \u201cI\u2019m a totally different player than I was in high school. I have to be.\u2019\u2019

Understanding that has helped the 6-foot-7 Davenport West graduate thrive, averaging 15.9 points and 6.9 rebounds per game for a 10th-ranked NIACC team that is off to a 15-3 start this season.

\u201cIf you don\u2019t come ready to compete here every day, in practice and when games start, it all will pass you by and I\u2019m committed to becoming the best player I can be,\u2019\u2019 Sampson said.

That realization began to set in shortly after Sampson joined the program coached by Mark Mohl, a Lost Nation, Iowa native who is in his 12th season at the Mason City junior college.

The Trojans play an up-tempo style of basketball, averaging 104.9 points per game while allowing 85.6.

\u201cI love the way we play, but it\u2019s all about conditioning and preparation that gets us ready to run like that,\u2019\u2019 Sampson said.

\u201cWhen I got here, it took me about two days to realize that this was a whole different deal. There were times in high school when I didn\u2019t have the best motor. Here, that doesn\u2019t cut it.\u2019\u2019

So, Sampson adjusted.

He averaged 7.2 points in a reserve role as a freshman for NIACC, finishing the season strong and earning a spot on the NJCAA Region XI all-postseason tournament team.

Sampson didn\u2019t settle for that.

He spent the summer at home in Davenport, working to return to campus last fall more than ready to compete for the starting role he now fills.

He worked with younger players\u00a0\u2014 something he hopes to do as an educator and coach following college\u00a0\u2014 and he trained.

Sampson concentrated on gaining strength and growing his game. He trained in the Quad-Cities with former collegiate players Anthony Kyle and C.J. Carr, work he said has proven beneficial and a perfect complement to the help he has had from Mohl and his staff at NIACC.

\u201cMy athleticism has improved and I feel like I\u2019ve improved my basketball IQ on the court,\u2019\u2019 Sampson said. \u201cI\u2019m a better passer and shooter now and just all around I feel like I\u2019ve improved my game.\u2019\u2019

He felt like that had to happen.

\u201cIf you want to be part of a team that is pressing for 40 minutes and turning that into a fast-paced offense on the other end, you have to get your fundamentals and your conditioning where it needs to be,\u2019\u2019 Sampson said.

\u201cI\u2019m thinking differently and seeing the game differently on the court now than I did in high school. Some of that is experience and some of that is from the work I\u2019ve put into it.\u2019\u2019

He believes he has become a most consistent player from an offensive standpoint, more capable this season of shooting off the dribble and growing his abilities as a mid-range shooter.

\u201cI\u2019ve always been a catch-and-shoot guy, but I feel like I\u2019ve made some progress in becoming a better ball handler and I\u2019m able to score off of that better than I have been,\u2019\u2019 Sampson said.

He is currently shooting 57.7 percent from the field, the second-best work among the five NIACC players who have double-digit scoring averages.

Sampson enjoyed a hot start to the season.

He was named the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference and NJCAA Division II national player of the week for play during the week of Nov. 18-24.

In wins over the Wartburg JV, Central Nebraska Community College-Columbus and Northeast (Neb.) Community College, Sampson averaged 21.3 points, 12.3 rebounds and three blocks per game.

His effort included the first two of his three double-doubles this season.

That has helped Sampson gain as much confidence in his game as ever.

\u201cConfidence has been huge for me,\u2019\u2019 Sampson said. \u201cThe coaches here believe in me and that has me wanting to accomplish even more. I\u2019m working as hard as I ever have at my game and seeing the results, that\u2019s good motivation.\u2019\u2019

Sampson entrusted Mohl with helping him work toward his potential.

One of the first college-level coaches to recruit Sampson, talking with him prior to his senior season with the Falcons, Mohl encouraged the forward to make a campus visit.

\u201cOnce I made the trip, I found the right place for me,\u2019\u2019 Sampson said. \u201cIt\u2019s a good basketball program and we run a fun style to be a part of. It\u2019s been a great situation for me. The coaches here have really helped me develop my game and become a better player.\u2019\u2019

That is leading to possibilities beyond this season.

Sampson now finds himself on the recruiting radar of some NCAA Division I programs.

He\u2019s made a campus visit to Omaha, has been told by coaches at Wyoming that they plan to attend a NIACC game later this season and he has talked with coaches from Green Bay as well.

\u201cThat\u2019s something I really never thought a lot about in high school or even last year when I was a freshman, but now I want to keep working and see where it leads,\u2019\u2019 Sampson said. \u201cIt\u2019s still all about getting better and being ready to take that next step.\u2019\u2019

A poll of likely Democratic caucus goers finds that 29 percent think Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar is best-suited to address the needs of rural Iowa, but the same percentage say they will support former Vice President Joe Biden when they caucus Feb. 3.

A Focus on Rural Iowa poll conducted in the days after last week\u2019s televised Democratic presidential candidate debate put Biden back on top of the survey conducted quarterly since September 2018.

But despite calling Klobuchar \u201cbest-suited\u201d for rural Iowa, only 11 percent of the sample of 500 likely caucus goers \u2014 92 percent of them Democrats \u2014 plan to caucus for her, according to the poll conducted by David Binder Research of San Francisco.

Biden\u2019s lead has shrunk from that first Focus on Rural Iowa poll in September 2018, when he had the support of 37 percent of the sample.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren was at 16 percent and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at 12 percent in that poll.

The poll\u2019s sample is split almost evenly between urban/suburban Iowans and rural/small town residents.

Now Warren is second at 18 percent, former South Bend Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 16 and Sanders at 14.

Focus on Rural Iowa co-founder Jeff Link of Link Strategies, which works with Democratic candidates, said that although the poll is a snapshot of where likely caucus goers are two weeks before the caucuses, people could change their minds.

\u201cAt this point in 2016, Donald Trump led Ted Cruz by 4 points and lost by 3.3\u201d points in the Republican caucuses, Link said Monday. \u201cHillary Clinton led Sanders by 5, but won by .2 percentage points. So while we\u2019re only two weeks out, we think that this thing could definitely shift around.\u201d

What is less likely to change is Iowans\u2019 favorable opinion of the Democratic field, Link and Binder said.

\u201cOverall, the big take-away for me is that Iowans like this field,\u201d Link said. \u201cThat\u2019s probably why it\u2019s a tough choice for people.\u201d

Binder\u2019s research finds that Biden has a favorability rating of 81 percent \u2014 just 1 point less than Klobuchar\u2019s 82 percent favorability rating. Hers is up from 70 percent in September, Binder said, indicating that exposure she has gained in debates has helped her. The favorability ratings for the others are: Buttigieg 79 percent, Warren 77 percent and Sanders 76 percent.

\u201cWe know there is some attention to the competition between them, but when Iowa caucus goers look at these top five they like them all,\u201d Binder said. \u201cI think that also is an indication there still may be some fluidity moving into the caucuses because the caucus goers like multiple candidates.\u201d

By a 52 to 28 percent margin, the likely caucus goers prefer a candidate who makes it a priority to engage rural Iowans instead of a candidate who makes it a priority to increase turnout in Iowa\u2019s larger cities. In addition, 89 percent think the nominees should compete for rural votes while 9 percent see that as a lost cause.

Asked specifically about the Trump administration\u2019s decision to grant biofuels waivers to some oil refiners, which limited ethanol production, 65 percent said it would hurt Trump, including 35 percent who said it would hurt him \u201ca lot.\u201d Twenty-seven percent said the decision would not matter.

Focus on Rural Iowa\u2019s effort to bring presidential candidates to rural Iowa and learn about rural issues has paid off, said the group\u2019s co-founder, former Iowa Lt. Gov. Patty Judge.

\u201cWe believe we have been able to move the needle,\u201d she said. Fourteen candidates have visited ethanol plants and 15 have released comprehensive rural plans. \u201cPeople are talking about rural America. They have not forgotten us and we hope that dialogue will continue.\u201d

MINNEAPOLIS \u2014 A wrongful death lawsuit filed by Prince's family members has been quietly dismissed in recent months, suggesting family members have reached settlements with defendants including the Minnesota doctor who saw Prince in the weeks before his death and Trinity Medical Center in Moline that treated him for an opioid overdose seven days before he died.

The dismissals largely close one legal chapter in the superstar's legacy, even as efforts drag on to value and dispose of his estate once pegged at around $200 million.

Prince was 57 when he died of an accidental fentanyl overdose on April 21, 2016, without leaving a will. No one was criminally charged in his death and the source of the counterfeit pills that killed him remains unknown.

Prince's heirs filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a slew of defendants in April 2018, alleging they had the duty and opportunity to diagnose and treat Prince's addiction and prevent his death, but failed to do so.

But as early as last summer, plaintiffs began dismissing defendants.

Claims against Dr. Michael Schulenberg \u2014 a doctor who treated Prince in the weeks before his death \u2014 were permanently dismissed in November, along with claims against Schulenberg's former employer. Both sides agreed to the dismissals.

Claims against Walgreens, which filled prescriptions for Prince, and Trinity Medical Center, the Moline hospital where Prince was treated for an opioid overdose a week before he died, were also permanently dismissed in August by agreement.

Attorneys in the case either declined comment or did not return messages to The Associated Press. But Henry Blair, a professor at Mitchell Hamline School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, said the dismissal language \u2014 with agreement by defendants and plaintiffs \u2014 leaves him \"99.99% sure those are settlements.\"

A medical negligence claim against Howard Kornfeld, a California addiction specialist who was contacted by Prince's associates before he died, was dismissed by a judge in September, but remains alive on appeal. Prince's family says Kornfeld had a duty to advise Prince's associates that he should be immediately admitted for treatment. But the judge found no evidence that Kornfeld ever communicated with Prince or that a doctor-patient relationship was established.

An autopsy found Prince overdosed on fentanyl. Authorities said it was likely Prince didn't know he was taking the synthetic opioid that is 50 times more powerful than heroin.

Authorities said Schulenberg admitted prescribing the opioid oxycodone to Prince's bodyguard in the days before Prince died, knowing the drug would go to Prince. He disputes that allegation, although he paid $30,000 to settle a federal civil violation alleging the drug was prescribed illegally.

The bodyguard, Kirk Johnson, was deposed during the wrongful death litigation, but refused to answer nearly all of the questions, according to a transcript.

Meanwhile, Prince's siblings are still waiting to learn how much his estate is worth. Court filings several months after Prince's death suggested the estate was worth around $200 million before taxes. More recent filings suggest the estate and Internal Revenue Service have not yet agreed on its value.

Protracted litigation isn't unusual for big estates, even when there is a will. The fight between pop superstar Michael Jackson's estate and the IRS over valuing his estate continues in federal tax court, even though he died in 2009.

The lengthy proceedings are stretching some of the siblings' resources. In recent months, one of Prince's sisters, Tyka Nelson, sold a portion of her share of the estate for an undisclosed amount to Primary Wave, a music publisher that also holds interests in the estates of Whitney Houston and other musicians. Nelson wrote in an affidavit that she did that to \"realize some value from the Estate before the completion of the Estate administration.\" Nelson also appointed Primary Wave to act on her behalf with respect to her remaining share of the estate.

A brother, Alfred Jackson, also entered an agreement with Primary Wave before he died in August. Now, a separate case sorting out Jackson's estate is pending in Missouri, according to court documents.

One court filing says Primary Wave has invested millions to acquire an interest in the estate. Law firms have also issued attorneys' liens against the interest of some siblings.

Attorneys involved either declined comment or did not return messages. Attempts to reach some of the siblings were unsuccessful.

While no one is contesting Tyka Nelson's agreement with Primary Wave, three siblings say the company should not be recognized as an \"interested person\" with similar rights as the heirs in the estate as the case proceeds. Sharon, Norrine and John Nelson said in a court filing that they are stretched financially and that the case has \"cost the Estate millions of dollars, wasting far too much money on legal fees and other costs for far too long.\"

Susan Link, a Minneapolis estate attorney not involved in the case, said the sibling disagreements have stalled resolution.

\"If the beneficiaries are agreeing and working together in lock-step, it doesn't matter how much the estate is worth, you can get things done,\" Link said.

The University of Iowa swept the Big Ten\u2019s weekly awards Monday as center Luka Garza was named the league\u2019s player of the week and guard CJ Fredrick was honored as the freshman of the week.

The 6-foot-11 Garza averaged 30 points, five rebounds, and 1.5 blocks in victories over Northwestern and Michigan, hitting 62.5% of his shots from the field (20 of 32), 66.7% (4 of 6) from 3-point range and 84.2% (16 of 19) of his free throws.

He had 33 points in the 90-83 victory over Michigan, giving him 77 points in two games against the Wolverines. It is the most points by any Big Ten player against a single opponent in regular-season play over the past 20 seasons.

He had 27 points against Northwestern, including a run of 14 straight in the second half.

Fredrick returned from a foot injury to average 16 points, four assists, and three rebounds in the two games last week. He equaled his career high with 21 points against Michigan. Against Northwestern, he scored 11 points and matched his career best with five assists.

As we're all prone to doing from time to time, I found myself in Nebraska last weekend.

Wait, no. I don't mean I FOUND myself in Nebraska. I wasn't on a soul-searching mission to discover my true inner Cornhusker or anything. But I was in Nebraska for a visit. Well, technically a visitATION, but that was the bummer part of the trip. I'd rather talk about the weird part.

We had just crossed the state line when I saw the first sign. \"IT'S CHILI AND CINNAMON ROLL SEASON,\" said the friendly restaurant lettering.

The weirdness of what I'd read didn't really hit me until I saw another sign. \"CHILI AND FRESH CINNAMON ROLLS SERVED HERE!\" Well, that's just kind of odd. Why were all these restaurants advertising chili and cinnamon rolls simultaneously? Did some bakery in the area have a dramatic overstock on cinnamon rolls or something?

Eventually, we decided to find someplace to grab a quick bite to eat. And when you need a quick bite in Nebraska, there's really only one correct choice. You need to stop at a Runza. The iconic fast-food chain has 85 locations, and nearly all are in Cornhusker country.

For a short time, we had one in Moline. One of the first restaurants to set up shop in the late, great SouthPark Mall food court was a Runza. My best friend is from Nebraska, and when he discovered they'd opened a Runza here, it was the only time I ever saw him dance. Sadly, it was also one of the first food court failures.

Maybe the Quad-Cities just wasn't ready for the magic of a Runza sandwich\u00a0\u2014 a yeast-dough rectangle filled with ground beef, onions and cabbage. At Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, they sell over 10,000 every time the Cornhuskers take the field.

So there we were, waiting in line at Runza, when I spotted it. Combo #3: Chili and a cinnamon roll. A sign stuck to one of the windows proudly announced \"It's chili and cinnamon roll time!\" What the WHAT? And then it happened it front of my eyes. I spied a family gathered around a table full of chili bowls and plates of cinnamon rolls\u00a0\u2014 and I watched in horror as they eagerly tore off chunks of sweet glazed cinnamon roll, dunked them wholeheartedly in chili and wolfed them down.

I'm all for cultural differences among peoples. I enjoy trying different cuisines. I love chili. Lord knows I love a good cinnamon roll. I have absolutely no issues with the two sharing a plate in front of me. But to take the cinnamon roll and dunk it INTO the chili? That's a crime against nature.

Just then, a perky teenage Runza employee came to clean a nearby table. I proceeded to irritate her.

\"Soooo ... chili and cinnamon rolls. Is that a thing?\"

She looked at me as if I were crazy.

\"Because in Illinois, it's definitely not a thing.\"

Then she looked at me as if I were crazy and from Mars.

\"Of course it's a thing. What else would you eat with chili?\"

I could think of a dozen or so pairings less gross than cinnamon rolls\u00a0\u2014 but before I could comment, she was off, soon to be seen whispering to her co-workers while covertly pointing our way, assuredly telling them about the weirdos at table 13 who dare to eat chili without cinnamon rolls.

Upon getting back to Normalburg, I did some investigating. It turns out I'm not the only one astonished by this odd pairing. Internet sleuths long have tried to trace the origins of the exotic mash-up. The general consensus is that it started in Washington state as a \"logger's breakfast.\" Logging camps would take the leftover chili from the night before and dump it over cinnamon rolls for a calorie infusion to power their workers through the day.

As for Nebraska, the fad seems to have been spread by the trendiest of all people\u00a0\u2014 grade-school lunch ladies. Chili and cinnamon rolls as a combo showed up on Nebraska school lunch menus in the 1960s and spread regionally from there.

I wondered if anyone else outside of Nebraska knew of this peculiar pairing, so I posed it to the collective hive-mind of Facebook. Most of my friends found the idea pretty weird. Some said they grew up with it. But then other comments started drifting in that completely freaked me out.

\"That's nothing,\" a distant Facebook friend chimed in. \"I once had a roommate from Galesburg, Ill. He used to eat chili with peanut butter sandwiches and thought it was completely normal.\"

Um ... that's not normal? I grew up in Galesburg myself, and I spent most of my childhood being fed chili and peanut butter sandwiches on the regular by the fine folks at Community Unit School District #205. Just the other day, I heated up some chili, pulled out some Wonder bread, slapped on some peanut butter, and called it lunch. I've eaten chili with peanut butter sandwiches my entire life. Not once did I think it was weird. Its just how people eat chili\u00a0\u2014 isn't it?

Spoiler: It is decidedly not normal. And I had no idea. And now I've lost all sense of right and wrong, and I'm in an existential crisis. Thanks a lot, lunch ladies.

I'm thinking the moral of the story here can go two ways: Either (1) All of us are weird in our own way, whether it's our upbringing, our culture, or the state we call home, and maybe we should stop finger-pointing and just embrace our collective weirdness. Or (2) Grade-school lunch ladies were the original social influencers and are far more powerful than any of us ever realized.

Should my illustrious faux journalism career ever end, maybe that's how I'll spend my golden years\u00a0\u2014 working in a school cafeteria and devoting my life to making little kids think that insane food combinations are perfectly normal. If one day my column disappears, and then your child comes home from school asking for a sausage and banana pizza with extra mustard, my work will be done.

A Taylor Ridge woman is being held on $1 million bond in connection with an incident Friday, when a deputy's gun discharged during a struggle.

Here's what happened, according to a news release from Rock Island County Sheriff's Department:

A deputy was dispatched about 3 p.m. to investigate a burglary in progress. When he arrived. he saw two people flee.\u00a0

The deputy chased them and caught up with a woman who resisted arrest. During a struggle, she tried to disarm the deputy, and a single shot was fired from his gun.\u00a0

4. The Mississippi River is high, so why not raise the rollers?

\"020119-qct-qca-weather-feature-004\"

Lock & Dam 15 is seen as sea fog rolls up from the Mississippi River in Davenport, Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2019.

The Mississippi River is high. Again.

Already we're being warned of an \"enhanced risk\" of spring flooding. As a result, several readers have written to ask why the rollers at Lock & Dam 15 in Davenport/Rock Island aren't being raised to give the excess water a path out of town.

One reader accused the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers of maintaining extra-high river levels for financial reasons. The Mississippi River is being held back to an artificially high level, the reader said, because officials at the Corps don't want to blow their budget on dredging the silted-in areas of our pool.

While it's true that the Corps must, by Congressional order, maintain a channel depth of 9 feet, the agency is not creating flooding. And the Corps does raise the rollers when water reaches a certain depth.

The skeptics' point of view makes a certain amount of sense, though.

\"At some point, they do lift the gates, and it's a free-flowing river,\" said Jessica Brooks, a hydrologist at the National Weather Service, Quad-Cities. \"In fact, in this year's flood, the gates were up longer than ever.

\"But the gates aren't holding that much water back \u2014 not enough to impact flooding. People think that sounds intuitive, but it's not.\" Read more.

The ag community gathered inside of the QCCA Expo Center Sunday as the first day of the annual farm equipment show kicked off on a frigid winter day.

Have you set some goals or resolutions to work toward in the new year/decade? Whatever you choose to focus on make it a priority and be about it! Like the saying goes, \u201cmore is lost by indecision than wrong decision\u201d.

Here are 3 steps for staying fully focused and bringing your goals to fruition.

1. Develop new habits to support your goal. All of the choices you make day-to-day will determine your success. Does your current routine support your desired goal? If not, what changes do you need to make? We are all creatures of habit and it can be hard to change a routine even with the best intentions. Take a look at your daily and weekly routines to determine if your habits are working for or against your desired goals.

2. Eliminate distractions and time drains. After reviewing your daily and weekly routines, jot down the activities that take up large portions of time. For most people I imagine this being time spent watching television, scrolling on social media, or some other digital distraction. These activities may bring you some sort of satisfaction but ultimately they eat up a lot of time that could be used for something more productive.

Just as a food diary can be eye opening, keeping a log of a typical tech week may help identify habits to change. You don\u2019t need to completely eliminate all of these of activities but try to keep them in check so you can focus on what matters most in your life. There are some useful apps that can help manage your digital diet including ZenScreen and QualityTime.

Whatever you perceive as the biggest waste of time in your week, adjust your routine and be patient. Adjustment takes time but don\u2019t give up. With challenge comes change!

3. Check in often. It\u2019s important to revisit your goals and check-in on a regular basis. In other words, keep your goals front and center. It\u2019s easy to set your intentions but without a plan, that goal is just a wish. I would suggest rereading your goal every day, morning and night. This repetition and daily focus will help you manifest your dreams into reality.

A vision board is another way to manifest what you want out of life. Creating a collage of pictures and words can help you lay out your ideal future. You\u2019ll develop an emotional connection with this vision keeping you motivated and productive. Vision boards are like a lighthouse to guide you on even the cloudiest of days.

Barriers and setbacks are inevitable but don\u2019t dwell on these for long. Find the momentum to keep going and never lose sight of the big picture. Change takes time so be kind to yourself, stay focused and remember- What\u2019s the BEST that could happen?

Since January 2019, Moline has lost a number of executive staff members, including the city attorney, assistant city attorney, police chief, fire chief, city administrator, economic development director and finance director.

Some made the decision to leave themselves; others were asked to step down.

Despite a narrative of \"all is well\" from those who lead the city leaders, many on the outside, including me, are concerned with the city's direction.

''Our last two hires for city manager were not our best work,'' said Alderman Mike Wendt, Ward 3. \"We can all do better.''

The problem for the 42,000-plus who call Moline home?

It starts at the top.

It's apparent that you either do things Mayor Stephanie Acri's way, or you find work elsewhere.

In 2011, Acri, a razor-sharp mechanical engineer, accepted the alderman at- large seat on the Moline City Council, an appointment made by then-Mayor Don Welvaert.

Acri's full-time job is being the owner of the Rock Island-based Evans Premium Manufacturing Co., a firm that operates two shifts per day, six days a week, according to its website.

Acri is successful, and she is smart. That's not surprising, since I have yet to meet a dumb engineer. She is also shrewd and wants everything\u00a0\u2014 including much of what is written about Moline \u2014 to go through her. It's her way or no way.

After her appointment as alderman at-large, Acri, who has lived here since 1994, won election in 2013 to the same post. In 2017, she beat then-Mayor Scott Raes to became the city's first woman mayor.

It's a city she adores, she told me, and she credits it with helping her raise her three children as a single mother.

The good and the not-so-good aspects of Mayor Acri are one in the same: She loves to be in charge. If it wasn't that way, she would have stayed at her engineering post with Arconic and not started her own business. She never would have accepted Welvaert's invitation to join the city's council if she didn't want to lead. That goes double for wanting to be mayor.

You don't start your own company or run a city without having a want-to-be-a-leader ego and a measure of arrogant self-assurance. You must possess a degree of arrogance to be in charge in any setting.

As mayor, Acri wants to put her stamp on the city. You don't run for mayor if you don't have a vision of how you want things to be after your four years or more of service.

As a Moline alderman, Acri had ample time to survey the working landscape of the city she would someday lead.

In that period, I believe she noticed some senior staffers going through the motions. I think that like an assistant coach preparing to soon become the head coach or a vice president focused on becoming the company president, Acri formulated a plan that she thought would improve Moline when she became its mayor.

She has since aligned herself with like thinkers and doers on the city council, and they, at her urging, have voted to keep those staffers who check her boxes and discard those who do not.

\"She's got her thumb on everything,'' said one retired political veteran of Moline who wanted to remain anonymous.\"It's not what the mayor does. Remember, it's supposed to be city administrator-led, and they can't keep one. The mayor is part-time, $20,000 a year, and she is supposed to make everyone work together, not divide them.''

Alderman Wendt, whom I respect and have known since he was a teen playing high school quarterback, says I'm wrong about Acri.

\"She is diligent, precise, and she believes in accountability,'' Wendt, a Realtor-attorney, said in a recent sit-down with me. \"She is constantly occupied with doing what's best for the residents of Moline. She has a keen eye and a great business sense. She is also the first to admit if she makes a mistake or misunderstands something. She is absolutely the right person to make the city grow.''

Alderman David Parker, Ward 2, understands the concerns of the citizens he represents and knows there is work to be done on all fronts. He said Moline is going in the right direction, despite the staff turnover.

\"It is our duty to be good stewards of these financial resources, representing our residents and holding everyone accountable to high expectations,\" Alderman Parker said in a response to an email asking for comment about staff departures and the state of the city.

\"It is my belief that some employees believe that these expectations are no longer tolerable and have chosen to leave. It can appear that an unusual number of executive staff are leaving Moline, and it is something that should be feared by our residents.''

Alderman Parker believes Moline is on solid footing, having approved a balanced budget while lowering the property tax rate for the third straight year, despite costs and pension responsibilities.

He boasts about city projects like the new headquarters for the IH Mississippi Valley Credit union, the Axis Hotel, the Interstate 74 bridge, a $2 million grant for an expanded bike path system, and the city's commitment to sidewalk improvement.

I get that Moline has taken steps in the right direction, but for every two steps forward, it has taken three back in the eyes of those who care about what should be a vibrant quarter of the Quad-Cities.

I also believe the revolving administrative door will continue until Mayor Acri steps back and allows trained professionals to do their jobs.

\u201cParasite\u201d has officially infected this year\u2019s award season. Bong Joon Ho\u2019s Korean class satire became the first foreign language film to take top honors from the Screen Actors Guild on Sunday, setting itself up as a legitimate best picture contender to the front-runner \u201c1917\u201d at next month\u2019s Academy Awards.

The best ensemble win for \u201cParasite\u201d came over the starry epics \u201cOnce Upon a Time ... in Hollywood\u201d and \u201cThe Irishman.\u201d It was a surprise but only to a degree. \u201cParasite,\u201d up for six Oscars including best picture, has emerged as perhaps the stiffest competition for Sam Mendes' \u201c1917,\u201d which won at the highly predictive Producers Guild Awards on Saturday.

But \u201cParasite\u201d was the clear crowd favorite Sunday at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, where even the cast's appearance introducing the film drew a standing ovation. Yet until the SAG Awards, the many honors for \u201cParasite\u201d have seldom included wins for its cast, none of whom was nominated for an Oscar.

\u201cAlthough the title is \u2018Parasite,\u2019 I think the story is about coexistence and how we can all live together,\u201d said Song Kang Ho, one of the film's stars.

Because actors make up the largest percentage of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, their picks are closely watched as an Academy Awards harbinger.

But the last two years, the SAG ensemble winner has not gone on to win best picture: \u201cBlack Panther\u201d last year and \u201cThree Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri\u201d in 2018. And this year's front-runner, \u201c1917,\u201d more acclaimed for its technical acumen, wasn't nominated by the screen actors. If \u201cParasite\u201d can pull off the upset at the Feb. 9 Oscars, it would be the first foreign language film to do so.

Before the win for \u201cParasite,\u201d the SAG Awards were most notable as a reunion for Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. They each took home awards and celebrated the other's wins.

Pitt is headed toward his first acting Academy Award for his supporting performance in \u201cOnce Upon a Time ... in Hollywood,\" and he added to his front-runner status with a win from the actors' guild. Along the way, his speeches have been full of one-liners, and he didn't disappoint Sunday. Pitt, who said he was nursing a flu, looked down at his award and said, \u201cI've got to add this to my Tinder profile.\u201d

He added: \u201cLet's be honest, it was a difficult part. A guy who gets high, takes his shirt off and doesn't get on with his wife. It was a big stretch.\u201d The audience laughed and clapped, including \u2014 as the cameras captured \u2014 Aniston, his ex-wife.

Aniston later won an award of her own for best female actor in a drama series for the Apple TV Plus show \u201cThe Morning Show.\u201d \u201cWhat!\" she said upon reaching the stage. Aniston finished her speech with a shout-out to her \u201cMurder Mystery\u201d co-star Adam Sandler, whose performance in \u201cUncut Gems\u201d has gone mostly unrewarded this season despite considerable acclaim.

\u201cYour performance is extraordinary and your magic is real. I love you, buddy,\u201d said Aniston.

Backstage, Pitt watched Aniston's acceptance speech. After she got off stage, they warmly congratulated each other on their first individual SAG Awards.

Along with Pitt, all the Oscar favorites kept their momentum, including wins for Renee Zellweger (\"Judy\"), Joaquin Phoenix (\"Phoenix\") and Laura Dern (\"Marriage Story\").

As expected, Phoenix took best performance by a male actor. After individually praising each fellow nominee, Phoenix concluded with a nod to his Joker predecessor. \u201cI'm standing here on the shoulders of my favorite actor, Heath Ledger,\" said Phoenix.

Dern also further established herself as the best supporting actress favorite with a win from the actors guild. On her way to the stage, she hugged her father, Bruce Dern (part of the \u201cOnce Upon a Time ... in Hollywood\u201d ensemble).

Phoebe Waller-Bridge continued her awards sweep for \u201cFleabag,\u201d a winner at the Emmys and the Golden Globes. Waller-Bridge added a SAG win for best female actor in a comedy series and took a moment to reflect on the show\u2019s parade of accolades.

\u201cThis whole thing really has been a dream, and if I wake up tomorrow and discover it was just that, then thank you,\u201d said Waller-Bridge. \u201cIt\u2019s been the most beautiful dream.\u201d

\u201cThe Marvelous Mrs. Maisel\u201d also continued its streak, winning best comedy series ensemble for the second straight year, along with Tony Shalhoub taking home the statue for best male actor in a comedy series. But accepting the ensemble award, the show\u2019s shocked Alex Borstein said she had voted for \u201cFleabag.\u201d

\u201cHonestly this makes no sense,\u2019 said Borstein. \u201c\u2018Fleabag\u2019 is brilliant.\u2019\u201d

Robert De Niro was given the guild's lifetime achievement award, an honor presented by Leonardo DiCaprio who, like De Niro, is a frequent leading man for Martin Scorsese. (The two co-star in Scorsese's upcoming \u201cKillers of the Flower Moon.\u201d) A raucous standing ovation greeted the 76-year-old actor.

De Niro, a fiery critic of Donald Trump, referenced the president in his remarks.

\u201cThere's right and there's wrong. And there's common sense and there's abuse of power. As a citizen, I have as much right as anybody \u2014 an actor, an athlete, anybody else \u2014 to voice my opinion,\u201d said De Niro. \"And if I have a bigger voice because of my situation, I'm going to use it whenever I see a blatant abuse of power.\"

\u201cGame of Thrones\u201d closed out its eight-season run with wins for Peter Dinklage for best male actor in a drama series and for best stunt ensemble work. \u201cThe Crown\u201d took best ensemble in a drama series. And both \u201cFosse/Verdon\u201d stars \u2014 Michelle Williams and Sam Rockwell \u2014 won for their performances in the miniseries.

For four seasons, the Rock Island girls' basketball team counted on Brea Beal to score points\u00a0\u2014 more than 2,500 of them. What not many noticed was Beal was really good on the defensive end.

Her new coach, South Carolina's Dawn Staley, did not even know that.

The entire nation is starting to see that the 6-foot-1 freshman can be disruptive on the defensive end.

\"Everyone comes onto a new team you have an idea of what you realistically want to be,\" Beal said. \"I scored 24 points a game, so I wanted to be a scorer. I also know that there has to be multiple people to win games. I had to find my role and I know that defense wins games.

\"It was just about me spending a lot of time understanding how to know the personnel on the court and what they want to do. When it's a great shooter, I want to move them to spots they don't want to shoot from.\"

When Staley got her team together, which included a freshman class that was No. 1 in the nation, she was not sure how her team's defense would look. She found out quickly, and Beal became a reliable defender.

\"I didn't know if we would be a zone team or a man-to-man team on defense,\" Staley said. \"We were assessing things and my assistants said we had to play man, and that's when we started to up the ante. I wasn't sure Brea could go up and down the court on defense but she proved me wrong.

\"What I noticed first though is of the freshmen, she was the best listener. She retains everything and she executes. She also has an incredible competitiveness about her. When anyone scores on her, she takes it personally. She has been a gift for us.\"

Beal is averaging 6.7 points and 6.6 rebounds per game this season, starting all 18 contests for the top-ranked team in the nation. She obviously wishes she was scoring more, but she's loving life in South Carolina.

\"Sometimes I think if I'm making defensive plays and getting boards, that's what wins games,\" she said. \"At the same time, there is a part of my mindset that says 'I scored 24-plus points a game in high school and I'm getting three or four shots in some games ... that's different.'

\"I still know I can score, and I just need to keep working on finding the shots better. Right now, I'm not getting in those positions to make a play but I am finding ways to help on both ends. What you have to understand is in college, especially here, everyone is a high school star and not everyone has to carry the load.\"

Staley is not at all worried about Beal's lack of scoring. That will come with time.

\"It's not that we don't want Brea to score, but we also know that sometimes that doesn't click in right away,\" Staley said. \"The fact that she plays defense the way she does as her strength is big. When the scoring comes along, she is going to be something else.

\"The offense usually comes last for young players and we will start in the offseason by changing her shot. Brea wants to be better, and she is willing to put in the work. The shots she is missing now are shots she made (at Rock Island) and ones we have seen her make in practices.\"

The Gamecocks take a 17-1 record into Monday night's game against No. 10 Mississippi State.

South Carolina was expected to be very good, but very few -- including Staley -- thought it would happen this season. Only a loss to Indiana keeps the Gamecocks from a perfect record. They are averaging wins by 27.1 points per game.

\"I didn't think we would come together this quick,\" Staley said. \"I'm very fortunate that every one of our freshmen just wants to win. Like Brea taking on that defensive leadership role, they don't care who is doing what, they just want to do whatever it takes to win.\"

Likewise, Beal gives a ton of credit to Staley, a high-energy coach who loves to have fun but is also quick to make sure her players are doing things the right way.

\"When you see her dancing during practice in videos on Twitter, what you see is what you get,\" Beal said. \"She has a love for coaching and for her team. At the same time, if you are not doing what you are supposed to be doing, she'll be right on you.

\"What she does for me is keep me relaxed and let the game come to me. They know I want to score but the coaches always keep me confident.\"

ANNAWAN, Ill. \u2014 Attracting interest from college football programs spanning all three NCAA divisions, Drake Van Hyfte has made his choice.

The Annawan High School senior and 2019 Quad-City Times Western Illinois player of the year is set to continue his football career at Eastern Illinois University and will sign his letter of intent on Feb. 5.

\"After my visit down there, getting to meet with all of the staff and some of the players, and seeing the campus, a big part of my decision was the coaches; we share a lot of the same morals and values,\" Van Hyfte said. \"EIU is a program that's heading in the right direction.\"

Prior to his choice to become a Panther, Van Hyfte had been looking at teams ranging from Division III Augustana to the University of Iowa. Southern Illinois and Division-II Central Missouri were also on the short list.

\"All of the coaches are such great people; my recruiting coordinator, coach (Benny) Boyd, was very straight-forward with me,\" Van Hyfte said. \"I feel like this is going to be a great fit for me. I'm thankful for this opportunity.\"

A defensive end for most of his prep career with the Annawan-Wethersfield Titans, the 6-foot-3, 235-pounder will move back to that slot in college after making the switch to linebacker this past fall.

Van Hyfte finished with a team-best 163 tackles (81 solos), including 38 tackles for loss and five quarterback sacks, and was a Class 1A IHSFCA Class 1A all-state selection.

He was also a first-team All-Lincoln Trail Conference pick on both sides of the ball for the second year in a row, helping lead A-W to a 12-1 season and a spot in the 1A semifinals.

Now, he looks forward to helping rejuvenate an EIU program that last qualified for the FCS playoffs in 2015 and last won the Ohio Valley Conference championship in 2013.

\"I think I can come in and help the program be successful,\" Van Hyfte said. \"EIU has always been known for its football, and I know they're looking to turn it around. It'll take effort and hard work, but I feel like I can contribute. I'm going to give them my best effort.\"

The prospect of following in the footsteps of such past Panther greats as current New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton, retired Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and current San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is equally appealing.

\"Those are some name-brand guys,\" Van Hyfte said, \"so to wear the same uniform as them, that's huge.\"

A three-sport performer who has also played basketball and baseball, Van Hyfte is glad to have made his choice, looking ahead to the rest of his senior year and then the next chapter in Charleston.

\"Having this set in stone, it takes a load off,\" he stated. \"Knowing where I'm going and what I'm looking forward to, this is huge for me.\"

MADISON, Wis. \u2014 Just like that, the Iowa women\u2019s basketball team found another way to win Sunday.

After trailing by 17 points in the opening minute of the third quarter, the 22nd-ranked Hawkeyes rallied for an 85-78 victory over Wisconsin.

The win was Iowa\u2019s 21st in a row over the Badgers, extending a streak which begin during the 2006-07 season, and its sixth straight in Big Ten play this season.

Maintaining a share of first place in the conference race did not come easily.

\u201cIn that first half, we couldn\u2019t get to halftime quick enough,\u2019\u2019 Iowa coach Lisa Bluder said. \u201cNothing was going our way. Defense, rebounding, foul trouble, nothing.\u2019\u2019

That led the Hawkeyes to a 50-35 hole by halftime, but improved defense, a more aggressive approach in attacking the basket and the return of Monika Czinano fueled Iowa\u2019s comeback.

Czinano, limited to two points and four minutes on the court in the first two quarters because of early foul trouble, scored 18 of her 20 points in the final two quarters as Iowa quickly turned the game around.

The Hawkeyes outscored Wisconsin 27-11 in the third quarter, stringing together a run of 14 unanswered points while hitting 11-of-15 shots.

On the other end of the court, Iowa limited the Badgers to 4-of-17 shooting to carry a 62-61 lead into the final quarter.

\u201cThat third quarter, wow,\u2019\u2019 Bluder said. \u201cI don\u2019t know if I\u2019ve ever been a part of a game where things turned so quickly. We started making shots, our defense picked up a lot and we were really taking the ball to the hole hard, really driving it.\u2019\u2019

The Badgers had no answer.

Czinano finished by hitting 8-of-9 shots from the field, joining Makenzie Meyer and Kathleen Doyle in reaching the 20-point plateau.

Meyer finished with 22, helping Iowa with a 4-of-6 touch from 3-point range, while Doyle totaled 21 and matched Meyer\u2019s total with six assists.

\u201cI just tried to attack the basket and help get our offense going,\u2019\u2019 Doyle said.

The Hawkeyes shot 68 percent over the final two quarters, hitting 17-of-25 shots while limiting the Badgers to 37.5-percent shooting after halftime.

Bluder said she made only minimal adjustments in Iowa\u2019s zone defense at the break.

\u201cIt wasn\u2019t anything major. We just did a lot of things better in the second half,\u2019\u2019 Bluder said. \u201cI think getting Monika back on the floor was a part of it.\u2019\u2019

Czinano scored 12 of her points in the final quarter as Iowa (15-3, 6-1 Big Ten) held off the Badgers, hitting all four of her field goal attempts and 4-of-5 free throws.

The teams traded leads six times in the fourth quarter with Wisconsin taking its final lead at 76-75 on a basket by Imani Lewis with 2 minutes, 39 seconds remaining and Iowa moving ahead to stay 10 seconds later when Czinano scoring on a lay-in after taking a feed from Meyer.

The basket came as part of a run of eight straight points by the Hawkeyes\u2019 sophomore center, helping the Hawkeyes\u2019 lead reach 81-76 when Amanda Ollinger hit the first of two free throws with :37 remaining.

Lewis led Wisconsin (9-9, 1-6) with 18 points.

Iowa returns home for its next two games, hosting Ohio State on Thursday and retiring the jersey of consensus 2019 national player of the year Megan Gustafson following next Sunday\u2019s home game against Michigan State.

The ag community gathered inside of the QCCA Expo Center Sunday as the first day of the annual farm equipment show kicked off on a frigid winter day.

Children climbed equipment, most often finding a way to the driver\u2019s seat, while parents talked to sales people or other adults at the different booths on the floor of the expo center in Rock Island.

Jay Solomonson, 40, of Coal Valley, was there with his family. The former Orion High School teacher took a year off, working currently as a field advisor, before starting a job with Illinois State University in an ag education role.

He said it\u2019s important to stay current on the industry developments \u201cto make sure future decisions\u201d are informed.

The annual Quad Cities Farm Equipment Show, back for its 29th year, ran from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at the QCCA Expo Center, 2621 4th Ave. in Rock Island. Admission and parking are both free. The show also operates 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday.

The event also comes on the heels of the U.S. and China signing off on the first phase of a new trade deal. But there hasn\u2019t been much of an uptick after the signing of that deal, leading to more uncertainty in the ag sector.

J.J. Nichting Company, based in Sigourney, Iowa, had several pieces of Case equipment on display for the show. Chris Hahn, a salesman for the company, said there was hope from the phase one deal in recent days, but \u201cfrom the looks of everything, I\u2019m not sure phase one is going to bring much,\u201d he said.

\u201cThere wasn\u2019t really much of a response to it.\u201d

Much like Moline-based Deere & Company, Case was showcasing precision ag equipment at this year\u2019s event, which is when farm equipment is outfitted with technology to allow operators to more precisely operate within their fields.

Echoing comments made by Deere officials, Hahn said there\u2019s a lot of older farm equipment still in use.

\u201cLast five years, a lot of guys that haven\u2019t traded (in equipment) as much as they used to,\u201d he said.

But that has led to a boost in part sales and technician calls. Part upgrades also help boost the trade-in value of aging equipment still in use.

\u201cWe always come in hoping to sell to someone, but it\u2019s about coming out for those interactions \u2026 the more we interact with them, the more we will eventually sell something to them,\u201d Hahn said.

Tara Mayhew, manager of the Rock Island County Farm Bureau, had a booth in the corner of the expo center. She said the local farm bureau was happy to see progress on international trade with the phase one agreement while awaiting for further details on the development.

Her display featured several informational items, such as a handout about the Women in Agriculture summit planned for March 27 at Jumer\u2019s Hotel and Casino in Rock Island.

Near the front entrance of the show was Vern\u2019s Farm Supply, based in Hooppole, Ill. Dan Butts, of Vern\u2019s, said he was hoping to learn more information on the phase one deal from farmers attending the show. He also said the company is \u201clucky to be able to be right in the doors\u201d greeting event attendees.

\u201cGrain drying is the hot topic right now because of the year we just had,\u201d he said.

A wet spring in 2019 triggered a late planting season and then crops absorbed more moisture during a wet September, which meant farmers would have to artificially dry out crop after it was taken out of the fields.

In addition to meeting new or existing customers, Butts wanted to reinforce grain safety, such as never entering a grain bin when it is being unloaded.

Vern\u2019s saw an uptick in business, both sales and service calls, during the 2019 harvest season. And while there were issues with the availability of propane in Iowa and Illinois for a time during the harvest, Butts said that may have helped Vern\u2019s to catch back up with business at times during a busy time for the business.
