One person suffered serious injuries in a two-vehicle crash Thursday on Interstate 80 at mile post 15 in Henry County, Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Dyan Talbot said.

The crash was reported at 7:02 p.m. and occurred on a stretch of I-80 between the Big X and Geneseo.

Talbot said the preliminary investigation shows that a dark gray 2013 Kia passenger car was westbound on I-80 and being driven erratically.

Talbot said that witnesses told police the Kia was traveling at a high rate of speed and weaving in and out of traffic and following other vehicles too closely.

The Kia came up behind a white 2014 Ford F-250 pickup that was westbound in the left lane. The Kia then struck the back passenger side of the pickup.

The Kia left the roadway to the north, or right hand side of the roadway, and struck a tree. The Kia then caught fire and its driver was removed from the vehicle by witnesses to the crash.

Talbot said that the Kia\u2019s driver was taken to a local hospital by Geneseo Ambulance with serious injuries.

The driver of the pickup was not injured and was able to pull the damaged vehicle over to the left side of the roadway.

The names of the drivers were not released late Thursday.

The crash remains under investigation.

It's best told from the start.

Dixie Norris works in a first-floor clerk's office at the Scott County courthouse in Davenport.

Last summer was difficult.

Her daughter, Samantha, had complications during her pregnancy with her second child. At 36 weeks, doctors determined her baby boy, Zurich, no longer had a heartbeat.

On July 26, Samantha delivered the stillborn at the Trinity BirthPlace Center in Bettendorf.

Devastated, Dixie and her daughter talked about things they could do. Samantha knew of one thing: She would take a few of the clothes, toys and other items meant for Zurich and give them to the first boy born on what would have been Zurich's first birthday.

\"The day before his birthday, July 25, we took a couple of outfits and a rattle and toys up to Trinity, along with a card that explained why Sam was making the gift,\" Dixie said. \"The 26th was a Thursday, and I was asking Samantha that weekend whether she thought we'd ever find out who got Zurich's gifts.\"

It couldn't remain a secret.

Linda Johnson works in the basement office of the sheriff's department at the Scott County courthouse.

This summer was exciting.

Her daughter, Samantha, was pregnant with her second child. On July 26, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy whom she named Kai.

\"After Kai was born, and they were getting ready to move Samantha to her own room, the nurses gave her a gift,\" Linda said. \"There were these darling onesie sets and a little comb and brush set and toys. There was a card, too.

\"The nurses had told us the gift was from a family who lost a boy a year ago. The card said he was born asleep, and that was heart wrenching. It was so sad and such a sweet thing at the same time.

\"Sam said, 'I'm keeping this. It's going in Kai's baby book.'\"

When Linda went back to work at the courthouse the next week, she was wearing a pin, \"Proud Grandma Baby Boy!\"

Enter Pam Robertson, a bailiff at the Scott County courthouse.

She had become aware of the gift gesture planned by Dixie and her daughter. When she saw Linda in a hallway, wearing the pin, she asked what day Kai was born.

\"I told her when he was born, and she said, 'Did you get the gift?'\" Linda said. \"I said, 'How did you know about that?' And she said, 'It was from Dixie's daughter.'\"

Linda raced upstairs to Dixie's office. After all, the grandmas have known each other for probably a decade, and they talk frequently about their two Samanthas and their grandkids.

\"I was on the phone with my daughter when Linda came in my office, and she looked like she was ready to cry,\" Dixie said. \"I told Sam I'd call her back.

\"She had tears in her eyes, and she said, 'Dixie, we got your gift. We were the first born.' I said, 'No!' The hair stood up on my arms, and we hugged.\"

Linda could barely believe it, either.

\"Dixie was on the phone, and I was looking at her; about to cry,\" she said. \"I couldn't believe there had been such a crazy coincidence. I said, 'Dixie, we got your gift.' I could barely talk.\"

The pair then passed the news along to their daughters as word of the \"crazy coincidence\" spread through the courthouse.

But it wasn't over, yet.

\"Samantha got pretty emotional, and she had to call me back,\" Dixie said. \"Meanwhile, she knew Linda and I were Facebook friends, so she looked her up on Facebook. I think she wanted to see a picture of little Kai.

\"When she saw a picture of Linda's Samantha, she realized the two of them were at the Friendly House together as children. I'm telling you, little Zurich had a plan that day.\"

One last thing: Kai is Linda's newest grandchild.

Dixie's only grandchild, Samantha's first child, is Kyleigha.

The start of the high school football season is just a week away, and players and coaches are totally focused on preparing for the coming season.

They\u2019re getting into shape, competing for playing time, developing game plans.

In the midst of all that preparation, the Moline football program received a dose of perspective this week.

One of its players died.

Freshman Christopher Bunch succumbed to an ailment called ADEM (acute disseminated encephalomyelitis), which in the course of a week evolved from a seemingly ordinary headache into something much worse.

It left a program full of players, many of whom barely had a chance to get to know Bunch, stunned and grasping to make sense of it all.

\"We talked about it at practice (Tuesday),\" Moline varsity coach Mike Morrissey said. \"It puts things into perspective obviously as adults, but it also puts things into perspective for the kids.

\"It\u2019s like \u2018OK, there\u2019s a young man who\u2019s a freshman who doesn\u2019t even get the opportunity to do the things that you guys are doing.\u2019 You kind of hit on those things, like, \u2018Try to take advantage of the opportunities that you have, in athletics, in your social life, at home, whatever it may be. Don\u2019t let those opportunities go to waste because you just don\u2019t know when they\u2019re going to be taken away from you.\u2019\"

Chris Bunch, 14, had waited a long time to get to play football for Moline. An older brother had attended the high school, and a cousin is on the Maroons\u2019 varsity squad. A 2013 photo on Bunch\u2019s Facebook page shows him with some of his buddies in the Jr. Maroons program.

This is something he eagerly anticipated.

He got to be a part of it for only two days.

A week ago Monday he had a headache, but he was determined to go to his first high school football practice. After he complained to the coaches that his head hurt, they had him sit out the remainder of the workout.

He slept from 7 o\u2019clock that night until about 2:30 p.m. the next day, got up and went to practice again, according to a Facebook post by Bunch\u2019s father, Elijah Mendoza. This time the headache was accompanied by some vomiting.

\"Our coaches told him 'You\u2019re not doing anything. Go home. Get rest. Do whatever you have to do,\u2019\" Morrissey said.

Bunch went home, went to bed again at 7 p.m. and this time slept for more than 24 hours.

At that point, his parents took him to the emergency room, and he eventually was transported to the University of Iowa Stead Children\u2019s Hospital in Iowa City.

It was there that he was diagnosed with ADEM, a rare autoimmune disease that causes fast-moving inflammation of the brain and spinal cord and attacks the central nervous system.

Only eight people in a million are afflicted with ADEM, and most survive.

\"The doctors in Iowa City told the family it\u2019s the worst case of ADEM that they\u2019ve ever seen,\" Morrissey said.

Bunch battled the disease for several days, but by Tuesday the struggle was over, prompting a tortured Facebook post from Elijah Mendoza: \"We are so upset to say this, but our gorgeous son Christopher Bunch has gone to be with God at 1:02 p.m. Please Lord look over my son and take good care of him. My son I love you so much, and I will always and forever love you and keep you in my heart.\"

A few hours later, the family still was struggling to come to grips with what happened. There was another Facebook post from Mendoza: \"My heart is so torn into pieces. I am just broken now.\"

Morrissey said that he can tell how well-liked Chris Bunch was by friends, classmates and others in the community.

Friends described him as an energetic, upbeat kid. One of his former teachers wrote on Facebook that he was \"one of the sweetest kids I know\" and another wrote that he was \"a bright light to my day.\"

\"It\u2019s hard,\" Morrissey admitted. \"The family now is in a position where they\u2019ve got to figure things out, which you can\u2019t wrap your head around. It\u2019s a parent\u2019s worst nightmare to lose a child, and now you have to go through that process.\"

Not surprisingly, the Moline community is doing everything it can to ease the pain of this loss as well as the medical costs.

By 6 p.m. Thursday, 551 people had donated $19,734 through a Facebook fundraising page set up by Mendoza. Morrissey has talked to former NFL star Kurt Warner about donating an autographed football that will be auctioned off to benefit the family.

The outpouring of support, both financial and moral, will undoubtedly continue.

\"Everybody is doing their part to help out the family as much as possible,\" Morrissey said.

WASHINGTON \u2014 As the Senate convened for a rare August work period, the late-summer session serves as a reminder of how much has changed in the partnership between Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and President Donald Trump.

This time last year, the two men were barely on speaking terms. Trump bashed the GOP leader on Twitter after the collapse of Republican efforts to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law. McConnell said Trump had \"excessive expectations\" for what was possible. The phone lines between them went quiet for days.

But both learned how to better relate to the other. Trump now keeps the Kentuckian close as a needed ally in accomplishing his agenda on Capitol Hill. And McConnell talks to the president almost daily as the two chat strategy, monitor campaigns and count votes.

It's a course correction that's enabling Senate Republicans to motor through their agenda this summer. They're confirming Trump's new judges, approving funding bills ahead of a government shutdown deadline and laying the groundwork for a fall vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. They've decided that forfeiting the August break is a small price to pay to prevent another round of Republican-on-Republican infighting before the midterm election.

\"As the Senate reconvenes to cross more items off our to-do list, we should take pride in all we have already accomplished this summer,\" McConnell said in opening remarks for the August session. \"Important work remains for the weeks ahead.\"

Republicans acknowledge that last summer was not the party's finest hour, as former McConnell adviser Josh Holmes put it.

The Senate had failed in dramatic fashion to repeal \"Obamacare,\" drawing Trump's wrath. He implored the Republican leader: \"Mitch, get to work.\"

The feud laid bare the tensions generated by Trump's populist approach, fostered by his former campaign strategist Steve Bannon. At the time, Bannon was vowing to take on McConnell, along with every incumbent senator, in a scorched-earth approach to GOP primaries. Fox News' Sean Hannity called for McConnell to retire.

But a year later, simmering battles between the Trump and McConnell wings of the GOP seem to be taking a back seat to the party's drive to save the Republican majority in Congress.

Republicans in the White House and on Capitol Hill see their priority as working more closely to prevent a blowout, said one former administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss private thinking.

Keeping the Senate in session for part of August \u2014 even on this week's modest Wednesday-Thursday schedule \u2014 disrupts campaign plans for Democratic senators in the most competitive re-election battles in Trump-won states. It could also help protect the few endangered Senate Republicans.

The stay-in-session strategy can also be seen as payback to Democrats, who often force several days of procedural steps to delay final votes on Trump-backed nominees or legislative priorities.

Holmes said \"the whole point\" of the summer workload is to finish up the priorities Democrats slow-walked earlier. \"Now they have to stay in August when it's pretty valuable campaign time,\" he said.

It's not been without its setbacks, though. Some 10 senators, mostly Republicans, were no-shows as the Senate returned to session Wednesday for a truncated week of votes on judges.

At the senators' private lunch Thursday, McConnell \"re-emphasized how important it is that we all be here,\" said Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., who was among those pushing for the summer work period. \"Some of my colleagues didn't like it, and I respect that.\"

McConnell and Trump were always unusual allies. They talked regularly as Trump campaigned as the party's presidential nominee, according to the senator's office. But it had been a decade since McConnell had an active relationship with the White House. He and Obama rarely spoke.

As they worked to patch things up last fall, the Trump-McConnell alliance seemed to be in danger. McConnell headed to the White House after Labor Day with other congressional leaders, only to sit by while Trump cut a budget deal with Democrats. A month later, Trump and McConnell stood side by side in the Rose Garden to declare their strong partnership, even if reality seemed to tell a different story.

But McConnell is not one to take slights too personally, and Trump is often looking for the next deal. Soon Republicans would pass the GOP tax plan and head toward the new year, and all sides started seeing the benefits of a unified front.

\"They respect each other,\" said Kennedy, who talks with both. Trump has learned that the slow-moving Senate operates differently from the executive branch. And McConnell has demonstrated patience, and \"he's very good at holding his tongue.\"

Now, McConnell can often be heard highlighting Republican accomplishments, delivering a not-so-subtle reminder of what they have done together. He talks to Trump at all hours, increasingly about the campaigns ahead. He says he's even warmed to Trump's tweets.

And perhaps most pointedly, Team McConnell worked aggressively to counter Bannon's influence, mocking the strategist's support for controversial candidates, including Roy Moore in the Alabama special election, which cost Republicans the long-held Senate seat.

The president, for his part, understands that it's better to unify the party for the midterms. But theirs is more of a business partnership than a budding friendship, according to the former administration official.

It wouldn't be surprising, the official added, to see Trump dash off criticism of the Senate again, even if the tweets don't mention McConnell.

In the field and at the plate, Modern Woodmen Park wasn\u2019t big enough Thursday night for David Hensley.

After snaring a hot smash and then getting his cleats tangled up in netting as he dove head-first into the stands to catch a pop foul for the first two outs in the eighth inning, the Quad-Cities third baseman followed with a solo homer in the bottom half of the inning to give the River Bandits a 2-1 Midwest League victory over Kane County.

Hensley\u2019s game-winning fourth home run of the season came on a drive to the power alley in left-center field.

His two-out solo shot off of Cougars reliever Abraham Almonte ended a string of 15 straight Quad-Cities batters retired in the rain-delayed pitcher\u2019s duel which saw the teams sit nearly two hours.

Hansel Paulino earned his first\u00a0Midwest League victory in two decisions by working the final two innings, finishing off the three-hit win with three ninth-inning strikeouts and working around a one-out single by Jancarlos Cintron in the top of the ninth.

Following a delay of 1 hour, 51 minutes, play resumed at 9:01 p.m. and the River Bandits\u2019 early 1-0 lead lasted about 30 minutes before the Cougars\u2019 Ryan Grotjohn tied the game.

Grotjohn snuck a two-out solo home run just inside the right field foul pole in the top of the fourth, the only hit allowed by Tanner Duncan in 2.2 innings of relief work.

The hit was the first of the game for Kane County, which used two walks and a Ryan Dobson single to load the bases in the fifth but Parker Mushinski left them that way.

Mushinski ended the inning by striking out Yoel Yanqui, the seventh of\u00a015 strikeouts recorded in the game by a Quad-Cities pitching staff that now sits two punch outs away from matching the Midwest League record of 1,307 strikeouts in a season set by Fort Wayne last season.

By the time the rain began to fall following the end of the second inning, Quad-Cities had given starting pitcher Cesar Rosado a 1-0 lead to work with.

Rosado pitched two hitless innings before Miguelangel Sierra belted his 11th home run of the season.

The River Bandits\u2019 shortstop deposited the first of three hits allowed in the second by Kane County starter Mack Lemieux over the fence in left with one out.

Singles by Michael Papierski and Colton Shaver preceded a walk to Chandler Taylor which loaded the bases, but Lemieux recorded the fifth strikeout of his two-inning start and Quad-Cities left the bases loaded before play was halted and the grounds crew covered the infield before the rain started.

LumberKings game postponed

The Clinton LumberKings game against the Beloit Snappers was postponed by rain on Thursday.

The teams will meet in a doubleheader today with Game 1 starting at 5 p.m.

Clay Chandler is slated to start the opener for the LumberKings against Beloit's Gus Varland. Raymond Kerr is scheduled to start Game 2 against the Snappers' Mitchell Jordan.

A 23-year-old alleged member of a street gang from Gary, Ind., is awaiting extradition after he was captured in Davenport by the U.S. Marshals early Thursday morning in connection with a 2015 murder at a Gary gas station.

The U.S. Marshals' Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force, which includes Gary officers, was assisted by the Scott County Sheriff's Department in the arrest of Dontrall \"Trall\" Phillips.

Phillips was taken into custody at about 9:30 a.m. at a residence in the 2600 block of North Pine Street in Davenport, said Mark Gregoline, inspector with the U.S. Marshals' Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force.

Phillips was reportedly staying with a relative to evade police. He had previously appeared on Lake County's Most Wanted list for homicide.

Gary police Cmdr. Jack Hamady said Phillips initially fled into another residence and barricaded himself. A Gary police dog assisting the U.S. Marshals that day was sent in to apprehend Phillips, who suffered a dog bite as a result, Hamady said.

Phillips was taken to Genesis Medical Center in Davenport to be treated for the K-9 bite before he was booked at 4:10 p.m. into the Scott County Jail.

Phillips' charging information was not immediately available in Lake Criminal Court records on Thursday. However, a co-defendant, Walter A. Rondo III, was charged with murder and attempted robbery in June in connection with the case.

Rondo's charging documents detail how Phillips was one of two gang members allegedly involved in the ambush and botched robbery on April 12, 2015, at the 23rd Street gas station near Broadway.

Rondo told police he served as a lookout for Phillips and a second gang member while they robbed Donald Fuzzell, 21, and ultimately killed him in a shooting at the gas station, records show.

Rondo said he initially didn't come forward because he feared retaliation from Phillips and others involved.

A break in the case came through conversations with a woman jailed on burglary charges in May 2015, records state. She told police a day or two after the murder her boyfriend and his two friends confessed they attempted to rob a man at a gas station, but he fought back so they shot him twice.

When police first interviewed Phillips in June, he denied his involvement, instead telling police he heard of the murder only after it happened.

In a subsequent interview that same month, Phillips allegedly lied and said he only served as a lookout and that he was supposed to split proceeds with three other people.

However, a man also involved allegedly told police he and Rondo served as lookouts while Phillips and a second man carried out the armed robbery, records show.

Hamady commended the hard work of detectives who worked the case and members of the U.S. Marshals Service that assisted in his arrest.

\"These individuals, they try to flee the area, but we tracked this guy down all the way to Iowa, and it was our Gary dog that bit him inside that closet,\" Hamady said. \"Our detectives worked hard to put a good case together.\"

In an effort to save money over the next five years, the Davenport school district wants to outsource some of its operations.

Subbing work out to private contractors would save operating funds while assuring a continued or improved quality of service and support, Superintendent Art Tate said in an interview Thursday.

The district already outsources transportation to Durham School Services, for example.

He has asked department heads to send out letters of interest to vendors they know about, to solicit ideas. And he is open to ideas.

\u201cI\u2019ve seen a superintendent outsourced in other places,\" he said. \"In Arizona they take retired superintendents and they hire them out to the school district. And they don\u2019t have to pay their benefits. And the company pays the superintendent less than what the district would pay them. Some other services might include human resources functions or technology functions. There\u2019s no end to the things that someone could come and offer us to do for less money.\u201d

If the district decides to outsource, they would contract with a vendor for the service, but would be freed of paying salaries and benefits that come with district employees doing the same work. Of the more than $200 million annual budget, 80 percent goes is spent on salaries and benefits, according to the 2017 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.

\u201cWe know that in some cases outsourcing can save you money,\u201d he said. \u201cMany school districts do it.\u201d

\u201cWe\u2019re not talking about teachers. We\u2019re talking about support services,\u201d Tate said. \u201cThe idea is that you hire someone to provide the same level of services and quality of functions that you have now. You pay them. And because they\u2019re experts at doing it, generally they can do the same job for less money than it\u2019s costing us. We\u2019ve just got a general request for letters of interest for outsourcing because I\u2019m not trying to specify what to outsource.\u201d

With outsourcing, current employees worry about losing their jobs, he said.

\u201cOutsourcing is not easy,\u201d he said. It is an emotional issue that can be seen as a threat by employees.

In some districts, for example, janitorial services are outsourced, and the contractors hire the district's existing janitors, but at lower wages and with fewer benefits.

\u201cThis job has to be done to this level of quality. And what we want to do is assure that any of our employees who currently work with us can still have a job as long as they want to be here,\u201d he said. \u201cThen by attrition, this might work. An outsourcing might take several years to be complete.\u201d

Letters of interest should be received no later than Sept. 10, Tate said.

Bryan Gasser gathered his wide receivers, young and old, inside their position meeting room and turned on the film.

Iowa State has a known commodity on the outside in Hakeem Butler, but on this day, the third-year receivers coach wanted everyone to see how the most senior player practiced.

So Gasser turned on the film, and the players watch what Matt Eaton did that day during practice. They saw every snap.

\u201cEvery play he brings it,\u201d Gasser said. \u201cThat\u2019s what he brings to the table. He\u2019s a great leader, he helps those young guys out, but he\u2019s a guy that\u2019s a great role model and great example for those young guys, too.\u201d

And for perhaps the first time in his career, Eaton is healthy. The 6-foot-4 and 211-pound fifth-year senior flashed potential last year \u2014 most notably the Texas Tech game \u2014 but suffered a knee injury that kept him limited down the stretch.

A full offseason with no bumps in the road health-wise and a detailed treatment plan have Eaton feeling as good as he has in years. And it wasn\u2019t until essentially a month before the Cyclones\u2019 preseason camp that he felt like there was nothing holding him back.

\u201cMy knee, my body is just feeling great,\u201d Eaton said. \u201cI\u2019m blessed to be feeling the way I am and to be able to go out there and compete at the level I am. I\u2019m really grateful for that.\u201d

Allen Lazard, Marchie Murdock and Trever Ryen are gone, paving the way for Butler, Eaton and junior Deshaunte Jones to fit their roles. Eaton doesn\u2019t really get caught up in roles, though. His role is finding ways to come up with big plays when called upon.

Eaton fought through injuries at the start of his career at Temple and got a fresh start at Pearl River Community College before joining ISU. He had 21 catches, 208 yards and four touchdowns in 2017, including two scoring grabs against the Red Raiders.

\u201cMatt was coming back from injuries his first spring here, so in the summer he was never full go until we got to fall camp and following through with it,\u201d ISU coach Matt Campbell said. \u201cYou saw the emergence of Matt midway through the season at the Texas Tech game, and on through there, he really became a productive asset to us in that receiver group.

\u201cOne of the things that has been really fun is to watch Matt\u2019s growth.\u201d

That progress and new lease on health has helped Eaton meet the preseason camp portion of the year head on.

\"(He) really looks as fast as he\u2019s ever looked, as strong as he\u2019s ever looked,\u201d Gasser said. \u201cReally attacking the ball and showing how strong his hands are. I really have high hopes for Matt this year and have high expectations. He certainly hasn\u2019t let anybody down through camp. He works as hard as anybody.\u201d

His last go around is different. Butler will undoubtedly draw a lot of attention as he moves inside and out in the pass game, but Eaton has the chance to be the rock of the receiving group that Kyle Kempt and the quarterbacks will surely rely on.

\u201cI believe right after the bowl game, it was time to go because it\u2019s my senior year, and I\u2019m stepping into a bigger role and having a larger impact,\" Eaton said. \u201cSo I think just those guys walking out the door and showing us the way, obviously they\u2019re having a lot of success at the next level and have had success here.

\u201cWe just want to continue that on and do the best we can to get better every day.\u201d

Port Byron now has 21 Tug Fest wins to LeClaire\u2019s 11 after the Illinois town took the 32nd annual Tug Fest contest.

The final score in Saturday\u2019s event was Port Byron 8 and LeClaire 3, which allowed Port Byron to once again take home the Alabaster Eagle in Flight trophy as well as hold onto bragging rights for another year.

Eleven teams from each side \u2013 including one all-women team from both states \u2013 battled with the 2,700-foot rope stretched between the neighboring river towns.

The three-day event provides an economic boost to both sides, who also use Tug Fest to help support their communities.

In LeClaire, this year's theme was Super Heroes and the Tug-for-a-Cause beneficiary is Iowa C.O.P.S. (Concerns of Police Survivors). The group, which helps families of fallen officers, will receive proceeds from the sale of Tug Fest T-shirts.

Port Byron uses 10 percent of its profits go to a selected non-profit each year. This year's recipient will be the Rapids City Fire Protection District.

Tanner Champley remembers the practices on the hard dirt at Timmerman Field during his freshman year, lockers something of a luxury for first-year players in years past.

So when Champley and the other members of the St. Ambrose football team stepped foot in their new facility at the St. Vincent Athletic Center last week, the Fighting Bees wide receiver was blown away.

\"Honestly, we\u2019re spoiled with this thing right here. I\u2019ve never had a facility this nice in my career of playing sports,\" Champley said. \"The freshmen, I hope they don\u2019t take this for granted because I\u2019d say this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to come and play at one of these facilities. ... Count your blessings and just be happy to have a facility like this, definitely take advantage. This is just the start.\"

Those practices at Timmerman Field have been part of the past for two years now as the turf fields have provided solid footing for many of the St. Ambrose and Assumption athletic programs since being built in 2016.

The newest addition to the athletic complex takes it another step.

The 11,664-square-foot, $2.5-million building comes with 195 lockers for the football team, who can now just walk out to the practice field.

The two-story building also features a fully equipped training room, a laundry room and equipment storage space for other teams that use the complex, including the lacrosse and soccer teams as well as teams from Assumption High School.

The building also has six offices for the football coaching staff, who now have permanent offices after spending last year in a house on Brown Street just off campus and the years before that in an office building that was part of the Lujack's car dealership complex.

The locker rooms\u00a0\u2014 which are split between offense and defense\u00a0\u2014 are equipped with wireless internet and will serve as meeting and film study rooms for the team, though during preseason the team has been using the televisions to host Madden tournaments.

\"It brings the team chemistry together a lot more,\" Champley said.\u00a0 \"We\u2019ve got our music, our PS4s, our TVs, we\u2019re all rocking. I\u2019d say it definitely brings a team together. That does nothing but help your team.\"

Whether or not the new facility will help the Fighting Bees on the field, the coaching staff feels this addition, as well as all the renovations in the last two years\u00a0\u2014 the practice field, weight room and rec center, even new jerseys and helmets\u00a0\u2014 will help the program attract more and more potential student-athletes.

\"It\u2019s hard to measure exactly, but there\u2019s no question it\u2019s made a huge impact for us,\" head coach Mike Magistrelli said. \"I think we started to see it a year ago in last year\u2019s recruiting class in that we started to have this practice setup. You could show them we were doing a new rec center, new weight room, you add this facility to it.

\"These last two recruiting classes have been two of our better recruiting classes, both in quantity and quality, to where I believe it\u2019s the tip of the iceberg. All of the great things St. Ambrose is doing right now, we\u2019ll see that full effect probably three or four years down the road.\"

The last, and perhaps biggest, addition still to come is the construction of a stadium that will host both Assumption and St. Ambrose football games. Though construction has yet to begin on that facility, the players are more than ready to do their part to make the most of these new amenities.

\"Just like the coaches have been preaching, the time is now. It\u2019s not going to get better than this,\" linebacker Dillon Valdez said. \"St. Ambrose is the place to be right now and just play every day hard and just enjoy it.\"

ROCK ISLAND \u2014 Steve Pressly is at his best at the worst of times, serving as a burst of sunlight through the darkest of clouds.

It is a trait one cannot pluck from a tree or find in a drawer.

\"Pressly11_021a.jpg\"

Steve and Cindy Pressly pose for a portrait in the Knox Chapel. The former owners of Wheelan-Pressly Funeral Home and Crematory bought the neglected property at 7th Avenue and 21st Street in Rock Island in 2015 and restored the property to its former glory. The Presslys recently sold their funeral home business to longtime employees David VenHuizen and Joseph Perez.

For 41 years, Pressly, the longtime owner/president of the Wheelan-Pressly Funeral Home and Crematory chain, has offered compassion and caring to people who have lost loved ones.

He's not stepping down from that job, but he is selling his interest in the chain of area funeral homes.

\"I believe I was called to do what I do, to be a funeral director,'' Pressly said in a recent phone conversation from his Door County, Wis., home. The lifelong Milan/Rock Island resident was in the middle of a getaway with his wife of 38 years, Cindy.

\"It is an honor to serve the families we serve and get to know so many wonderful people,'' Pressly added. \"I treasure the relationships formed through the years, the generations of families we have served. You form friendships that never end. You see how people care for each other, how they celebrate life, how they struggle with loss. You get attached.''

SELLING TO 'THE BEST'

After much thought and prayer, Pressly recently decided to sell his interest in the Wheelan-Pressly chain, a local fixture since 1889, to funeral directors David VenHuizen and Joseph Perez.

\"David

David VenHuizen and Joseph Perez pose for a portrait in the lobby of Wheelan-Pressly Funeral Home and Crematory in Rock Island on Thursday. VenHuizen and Perez are the new owners of the Wheelan-Pressly Funeral Home chain.

He will be passing the torch to -- in his words -- \"two of the best at what they do.''

VenHuizen, a funeral director with Wheelan-Pressly since 1988, will serve as the company president. Perez, who began working with Wheelan-Pressly in high school, has been on the staff full time for the past decade.

Pressly will stay on as a funeral director for the next five years. He says Wheelan-Pressly, which has funeral homes in Rock Island, Milan and Reynolds, will not miss a beat with VenHuizen and Perez at the controls.

\"I hope the two put whatever touch they feel is right on the business, but nothing will change as far as serving the community with compassion and care,'' Pressly said, praising the two men entrusted with carrying on a tradition of serving people in their time of need for almost 130 years.

\"They are two of the finest people I know,'' Pressly continued. \"They have a great understanding of their role in the community. I'm lucky; I have seen firsthand and up-close knowledge of just how great Dave and Joe are. They have established and fostered many great relationships through what we do. They have given their all to this and deserve the same opportunity I was afforded.''

VenHuizen said he learned the business from the best.

\"What a great teacher,'' VenHuizen said of Pressly. \"He has given us his time, his energy and his passion through the years. I cannot thank him enough for his foresight and vision, which has left us in a great position to carry on that tradition. We consider ourselves blessed to be involved.''

VenHuizen recalled the day Pressly and the late Robert Wheelan asked him to join the team.

\"I was a scared kid, nervous like anyone in that position,'' he said. \"They were so great in sharing with me the tradition that had been built and how we all could go forward and have success.

\"It's been amazing to watch Steve and his approach all these years. I truly believe there is no one who has walked through our doors he doesn't know. We are so lucky he has decided to stay and share the ride with us.''

Knowing decision-making for Wheelan-Pressly will stay in the community has eased the transitional burden for Pressly. He has long taken pride in being involved and giving back to the community.

\"We went through a trend where other funeral homes sold out and turned to conglomerates,'' Pressly said. \"I struggle with decisions that are so important to a family being made by people not from that community. Not every situation is the same, but decisions in our business need attention from someone you know and trust.

\"You will always have that with Dave and Joe. It was the right time for me to do this. If I waited, it might not have been the case.''

PROUD OF COMPANY'S GROWTH

Pressly, modest to a fault, takes pride in the company's growth under his leadership. Its first funeral home, at 322 20th St. in Rock Island, was founded in 1889 by Charles R. Wheelan. In 2002, the Wheelan-Pressly Funeral Home was built in Milan. In 2007, the company moved its main location to 3030 7th Ave. in Rock Island, and after that, it opened another outlet at 801 W. Edgington St. in Reynolds.

In 2015, the former Knox Mortuary at 2106 7th Ave., Rock Island, was added to the chain. After the addition of a crematory at this site and many renovations, the building was renamed the Knox Chapel of Wheelan-Pressly Funeral Home and Crematory. It opened in 2016.

\"All done to better serve the community,'' Pressly said of the company's expansion. \"The commitment to each family is the same as it was when Charles Wheelan started, and as it was with William and Robert Wheelan. It has to be that way; it's what people deserve. It was a lot about need, making sure we were in places that could make a difficult time easier for people.''

FAMILY HELPED HIM SERVE

When a pretty emergency-room nurse was drawn in by the charm of a young ambulance driver and future funeral director nearly 40 years ago, both knew what the future held.

A nurse works long hours, and a funeral director's day is never done. There are middle-of-the night calls, and tragedy and sadness at most turns. Long days turn into even longer nights and shorter mornings, but Steve Pressly is lucky. He knew Cindy Pressly -- and his children, Nicholas, Christian and Sarah -- understood.

\"My family -- Cindy especially -- has had to deal with me being gone quite a bit through the years,'' said Pressly, a Worsham's School of Mortuary Science graduate. \"I have missed some things that if I were in a different line of work I would not have missed.

\"But thanks to Cindy and three wonderful children, I have been allowed to continue to serve. The business -- in addition to many other things -- has benefited greatly by Cindy's flare for decorating through the years.''

Though his calendar now has an open date or two, don't expect Pressly to \"slow his roll,'' as they say. He will work, and he and Cindy will travel. There could also be more Lutheran Church pastoral calls for him to answer.

\"My duties with the church have been rewarding,'' Pressly said. \"And there will be opportunities for other adventures, but I still look forward to going to work. I believe it is what I was meant to do.''

The Moline Police Department is warning of scammers claiming to be representatives of the IRS who are targeting city residents.

The department has received complaints from residents who received telephone calls from someone claiming to be with the IRS who told the recipients they owed the federal government money and demanded payment.

Moline police said the IRS does not contact people by telephone or demand payment in this manner. Anyone receiving such a call is urged to hang up.

ROCK ISLAND\u00a0\u2014 Rock Island-Milan school board members heard an update Tuesday on the implementation of school discipline policies by administrator Alicia Sanders.

Illinois state law SB 100 requires the district to adopt policies that requires students to receive suspensions only when they pose a threat to school safety or cause a disruption to other students\u2019 learning opportunities, and to review them annually.

Sanders said districts must also provide ongoing professional development to staff and administrators, which in the Rock Island-Milan district includes training on culturally responsive discipline, effective classroom management, consequences for school exclusion, and developmentally appropriate discipline methods.

Data presented by Sanders shows elementary out-of-school suspensions increased from 297 in the 2015-2016 school year, the year before the law was implemented, to 363 in the 2017-2018 year. For that same period, junior high out-of-school suspension decreased from 244 incidents to 125. The high school decreased from 532 incidents to 274.

Board member Tiffany Stoner-Harris asked administrators to look into tracking the type of interventions implemented for students, not just the discipline actions. Board member Marji Boeye said that could help identify areas of success.

Also on Tuesday, board members voted 4-2 to approve a contract with Whatever It Takes Inc. Indianapolis, to provide cultural competence coaching, training and consultation during the 2018-2019 school year. Board members Kevin Nolan and Terell Williams voted against the contract. Board president Linda Dothard was absent.

Originally part of the consent agenda, Williams asked for further discussion because it was his understanding the district was working to bring that process in-house, and the contract may not need to be renewed. The board first awarded a contract to Jamyce Curtis-Banks and Whatever It Takes Inc. in July 2016 for $184,000 for the training. Curtis-Banks has also been contracted to provide strategic planning services.

Superintendent Mike Oberhaus said the district still has the goal of building internal capacity on a long-term basis, but the new contract is necessary because it is taking staff longer than expected to develop necessary skills. He said staff members should not be expected to support schools and staff members in this work until they are ready to do so. By the end of the 2018-2019 school year, the district \u201cwill have full capacity, other than consultation,\" he said.

Nolan questioned what results the district receives. \u201cIf there's no result in spending \u201cx,\u201d then I'm not in favor of spending \u201cy,\" he said.

Oberhaus said there is evidence of growth and positive gains. He said he does not want to spend the money, but wants the program to be sustainable in the district.

Williams also asked to discuss the district's commencement venue contract. Williams had no issue with approving it for 2019, but he would like to see a formal analysis of the costs and benefits of holding commencement at the high school in the future. Board members held further discussion and Oberhaus said board members will receive a pro and con list in the future. All present board members approved the contract with the TaxSlayer Center in Moline for the 2019 ceremony for the contract amount of $14,405.88.

Democrat Fred Hubbell is taking to the airwaves to defend his record at Younkers, the department store chain that he headed in the mid-1980s and early-90s.

The move comes in response to a new television ad that Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds is running that criticizes his tenure there.

Hubbell is challenging Reynolds this year in the race for governor, and the argument over his stewardship of the Younkers chain, which he led from 1985 to 1992, has become a prominent part of the campaign.

Republicans have already criticized the retired Des Moines businessman for closing stores. But a new Reynolds ad says Hubbell also cut pay and benefits for Younkers workers in 1986, then gave himself a raise.

The Hubbell campaign says the new Reynolds ad is misleading, but Republicans say Hubbell is feeling the pinch from the criticism.

In his new ad, Hubbell speaks directly to a camera and defends his record, saying he took the company reins during Iowa's farm crisis and worked to keep people on the job in tough times.

\"Yeah, we closed a couple of stores, but we opened some more stores too,\" Hubbell said, referring to openings in Sioux City and Cedar Falls. \"When you\u2019re running a business or you\u2019re running a state, your job is to make the hard decisions so the most people get the most benefit and that\u2019s what I want to do with the state.\"

He said that during his tenure, Younkers added 1,000 jobs.

The campaign also said Hubbell invested in a new overtime and day off policy for employees.

Republicans say Hubbell is being misleading with the claim of adding workers, saying it was Younkers' 1986 acquisition of the Omaha-based Brandeis department store chain that accounted for the employment increase. The acquisition added 1,000 workers to Younkers' workforce, according to news reports at the time.

Reynolds' camp also is painting a different picture of Hubbell's treatment of Younkers employees. Her new ad features four people, who the campaign does not identify, criticizing Hubbell for cutting pay for \"hundreds\" of workers, as well as benefits, then giving himself a $90,000 pay raise.

The ad says Hubbell commented at the time the employees should just be happy to be working.

\"He didn't care about working people like us,\" a man in a welder's helmet says.

The Reynolds campaign says the cuts in the ad refer to a move Younkers made in 1986 to close its downtown Des Moines store at 5:30 p.m., instead of 7 p.m., on Mondays and Thursdays.

A Des Moines Register article at the time said the Younkers workforce of 250 were told to expect an average cut of about 2\u00bd hours each. It then quotes Hubbell as saying fewer than 10 percent of the store's sales force would be affected and the loss of hours wouldn't be that great. \"I'd think they should be happy they still have jobs,\" Hubbell is quoted in the article as saying.

The raise refers to Hubbell's salary going from about $145,000 in 1986 to approximately $234,000 the next year.

Hubbell's campaign has said he didn't give himself the salary increase, as the ad claims, but answered to a board of directors. The campaign also said his salary went up after a promotion in 1987 to lead Younkers' parent company, Equitable of Iowa.

However, the Reynolds campaign said the salary figures came from Des Moines Register articles published in 1986 and 1987. And both of those articles list Hubbell as chief executive and chairman of Younkers. But the articles also said the salary figures were taken from the previous years, meaning 1985 and 1986.

\"Throughout his tenure Younkers invested in employees and the communities they served -- with a generous overtime and day-off policy for employees and establishing the Younkers Farm Aid scholarship and concerts to help struggling farm families go to college,\" Hubbell spokesperson Remi Yamamoto said Thursday.

Pat Garrett, a Reynolds spokesman, said: \"Fred Hubbell has made his leadership at Younkers a key pitch to voters, but now Iowans are finding out that the only paycheck Fred Hubbell cares about is his own.\u201d

LA PORTE CITY \u2014 A visibly shaken La Porte City police chief Thursday announced that human remains have been found in Wolf Creek downstream from La Porte City.

Officials stopped short of saying the remains were those of missing teenager Jake Wilson, 15, who has been missing for more than four months.

But Chief Chris Brecher said the remains were \"consistent\" with \"what we were looking for.\"

He said recreational kayakers alerted authorities Tuesday afternoon. Officials said they have been on the scene since then, but did not notify the public until Thursday morning that a \"significant\" development had taken place regarding the missing teenager.

The family has been notified. A determination for the DNA of the remains may take up to two weeks.

Jake Wilson, 15, a La Porte City teen with autism, went missing April 7 after telling family he was heading to nearby Wolf Creek, a location he frequented often.

Wolf Creek has been thoroughly searched in the months since by experts and volunteers alike.

Brecher said he did not know why the remains were not found during the days of searches after April 7, but a factor could have been that the creek had lowered in last two months.

Northern Iowa's basketball program had a member of its coaching staff at every one of Ty Anderson's AAU games this spring and summer with the Iowa Barnstormers.

\"They really wanted him to be in that purple,\" North Scott coach Shamus Budde said. \"They were on him hard.\"

Less than 48 hours after receiving an offer from the Missouri Valley Conference school, Anderson gave a verbal commitment to coach Ben Jacobson's program Thursday morning.

Anderson is UNI's first commitment in the 2020 class but the third in-state player the Panthers have hauled in since late July. Dubuque Senior's Noah Carter and Oskaloosa's Cole Henry are among the 2019 class.

The 6-foot-5 Anderson averaged 7.4 points and 4.8 rebounds last winter for the Lancers, who reeled off 20 wins and qualified for the Class 4A state tournament. The left-hander also shot a team-high 54 percent from the field in his first season as a starter.

\"It just felt like the perfect spot, perfect fit,\" Anderson said. \"No other school was as connected to me as was UNI.

\"They believe in a family mentality, just like North Scott and the Barnstormers.\"

Anderson received some interest from Nebraska-Omaha, Bradley, Drake and recently Creighton.

After going to an elite camp at UNI last summer, the Panthers remained in contact. They followed him through the grassroots season.

Then on Tuesday, Anderson took a visit to the Cedar Falls campus. At that point, UNI extended a scholarship offer.

\"I was kind of shocked they offered that early,\" Anderson admitted.

Budde said Anderson's qualities match well with UNI's vision.

\"In order to play for coach Jacobson, you have to be tough, selfless and have a high basketball IQ,\" Budde remarked. \"Ty fits that model.

\"He is a little more old-school. He's already a great rebounder and can defend guys one through five on the floor.\"

Budde has witnessed that toughness in his program.

\"He's not afraid of anybody,\" Budde said. \"When he takes the floor in a game or during a drill in practice, he's going for blood. He doesn't care how many points he scores, but he'll do anything to make a team better. That's rare to see in this day in age.\"

Perimeter shooting is an area UNI's staff wants to see growth out of Anderson in the next two seasons. He attempted only 14 shots from beyond the arc and was a 54 percent foul shooter last winter.

Anderson likely will play anywhere from shooting guard to a stretch four in Jacobson's system.

\"My outside shot has improved quite a bit this offseason,\" Anderson said. \"Obviously, I didn't take very many shots last year, but I'm looking to extend that this year.\"

Also a member of North Scott's football team, Anderson has basketball in his bloodlines.

His father, Tim, played at Virginia Tech and spent a couple seasons playing for\u00a0 the Quad-City Thunder in the defunct Continental Basketball Association.

That passion has rubbed off on Anderson.

\"Ever since I was little, I wanted to play college basketball,\" he said. \"My dad has been great helping me through this. He loves UNI and thinks it is a great fit for me.\"

A Clinton man wanted on a several warrants out of Clinton and Scott counties was arrested Thursday morning in west Davenport following a short standoff with police.

Just after 10 a.m., Davenport police received information that a wanted person was in the 3900 block of Pine Street.

Preliminary information indicated that the wanted person, later identified as Craig Allen Holmes, 58, was in a vehicle and may also be in a possession, police said in a media release.

Units from the Scott County Sheriff\u2019s Office also responded to assist.

Officers found Holmes and the vehicle and asked him to exit. He refused to do so and began fumbling with items inside the vehicle, according the release.

Officers, who were concerned about weapons, backed away from the vehicle and coordinated a perimeter to block exit routes if Holmes tried to flee in the vehicle, according to the release.

The immediate area also was cleared of pedestrian traffic to create a safe perimeter.

Police negotiators made contact with Holmes and were able to get him to exit the vehicle, according to the media release.

Police say the incident lasted about 33 minutes from initial contact to when he was arrested. No injuries or damage was reported.

Police did not locate any weapons.

Holmes faces multiple charges of attempted third-degree burglary, trespass, forgery, fourth-degree criminal mischief and second-degree burglary, and fifth-degree theft for incidents that occurred in Davenport in July.

In one case, he is accused of going into a home on West 46th Street without permission while a woman and her children were in the basement.

The woman went upstairs and saw Holmes in her kitchen, according to an arrest affidavit released by Davenport police.

He became started by the woman\u2019s dog and grabbed her purse and fled from the house, according to the affidavit.

He then used the woman\u2019s credit card at a local business, according to the affidavit.

A Davenport man was sentenced Thursday to up to 25 years in prison for robbing a Mount Joy gas station in November.

Seith William Keith, 31, was found guilty of first-degree robbery and willful injury causing bodily injury on July 26 following a bench trial on June 27 and July 3 in Scott County District Court.

Prior to trial, he pleaded guilty to one count of sex offender registration violation.

On Thursday, Judge Mark Fowler sentenced him to up to 25 years in prison on the robbery charge, and up to five years in prison. The judge further ordered that the sentences will run at the same time and that Keith must serve 70 percent, or 17.5 years, on the robbery charge before he can be considered for parole.

According to court records, a lone clerk was working at the BP Amoco gas station in Mount Joy on Nov. 6.

Around 9 p.m., she walked out of a back door to check on some cats and saw a man, later identified at Keith, standing near the dumpster, according to court records.

She returned to the store and Keith forced his way behind her, according to court records.

Keith knocked the clerk to the floor and brandished a knife as she kicked at his hand. He then dragged the clerk by her leg and returned to the cash drawer, according to court records.

Keith was unable to open the drawer and started to walk towards the clerk, who had armed herself with a pair of scissors. He then fled out the back door.

The incident, which lasted just over 30 seconds, was captured on surveillance video.

Keith was identified as a suspect by the Scott County Sheriff\u2019s Office through an enlargement of a frame of the video surveillance footage.

Detectives learned that he was on parole and was being monitored by the Iowa Department of Corrections through a GPS ankle bracelet, according to court records.

A look at the GPS coordinates showed Keith at the gas station at the time of the robbery. Detectives were able to use the coordinates to locate and arrest him the next day, according to court records.

Keith initially told a detective that he was armed with a knife during the robbery but later admitted that he did have a knife. He said he threw the knife out of the window of a vehicle he was driving after he left the scene, according to court records.

A search of his apartment turned up shoes and a stocking cap that matched the footwear and clothing of the man showed in the store surveillance footage.

Keith testified at trial that he went into the store through the employee entrance and that he intended to take money. He also admitted to pushing the clerk to the ground and dragging her to another area in the store.

He denied that he was armed with a knife, according to court records.

An officer who checked with Keith's parole officer reported that he had been terminated from his job in September and did not report that information within five business days, which he is required to do under the Iowa Sex Offender Registry.

Keith admitted that he had not worked at his former workplace for a few months, but said he reported the information, according to court records.

Amy Behnke of LeClaire watched her daughter, Germany, transform from an active, happy high-schooler to a 17-year-old girl who couldn\u2019t walk.

\u201cShe always played volleyball, and was complaining about leg cramps. One day, she woke up and couldn\u2019t feel her feet, toes, and legs, and she couldn\u2019t walk,\u201d Behnke said.

Soon after, Germany, Behnke's oldest child, was diagnosed with a progressive form of multiple sclerosis.

\u201cIt wiped out her bowels and bladder. It has brought on mental illness and depression, and it\u2019s always a struggle. I can\u2019t do a whole lot to help my daughter, but I try,\u201d Behnke said.

In effort to help Germany and others with MS, Behnke spearheads the Q-C MS Open, Swinging Fore a Cure golf outing and fundraiser, which has raised $18,000 over the past three years.

\u201cI think it\u2019s pretty awesome that my mom is doing this, and that she cares about my health,\" said Germany Montag, now 24 and a stay-at-home mother of two in Port Byron.

The 4th annual event will be Saturday, Aug. 25, at Byron Hills Golf Club in Port Byron.

Funds raised mostly benefit local patients and families.

\u201cI want to see people\u2019s success stories, that this is really helping other people. The money is used to help local people build wheelchair ramps, handicapped accessible bathrooms, cooling vests, and other things that insurance won\u2019t pay for,\u201d said Behnke, adding their insurance company would pay for either a walker or a wheelchair for Germany, but not both.

Megan Wentland, a LeClaire resident and mother of three who\u2019s living with MS, also volunteers on the tournament committee. She said it is important to keep some of the funds raised in the Quad-Cities.

\u201cI work as a physical therapist, and I see that insurance often doesn\u2019t cover certain things for certain people. We step into the cracks where insurance doesn\u2019t help,\u201d said Wentland, whose first major MS symptoms began after her third child was born.

The QCMS Open also plans to donate $1,000 to The Upper Midwest Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, for research, improved treatment, and to aid efforts in finding a cure.

\u201cI want to bring awareness that MS can happen to people of any age, and that people shouldn\u2019t judge. Everyone is different. With some, you cannot tell they have MS by looking at them. I hope this brings understanding to the disease, and that my daughter feels that someone is fighting for her,\u201d Behnke said.

File: Northwestern linebacker Nate Hall tackles Illinois quarterback Cam Thomas during this game at Memorial Stadium in Champaign, Ill.

Big Ten breakdown: Illinois

Coach: Lovie Smith, 5-19 entering third season at Illinois and overall

2017 record: 2-10, 0-9 Big Ten (seventh, West Division)

Offensive starters returning (7): WR Ricky Smalling, WR Mike Dudek, TE Louis Dorsey, OL Nick Allegretti, OL Alex Palczewski, OL Larry Boyd, OL Doug Kramer

Defensive starters returning (7): DE Bobby Roundtree, DT Tymir Oliver, DT Jamil Milan, LB Del\u2019Shawn Phillips, LB Dele Harding, CB Nate Hobbs, S Bennett Williams

Specialists returning (2): PK Chase McLaughlin, P Blake Hayes

Returning statistical leaders: Rushing, Mike Epstein 57-346; Passing, Cam Thomas 28-66-5-375-0; Receiving, Ricky Smalling 31-510; Tackles, Del\u2019Shawn Phillips 85; Interceptions, Bennett Williams 3

Starring roles

Mike Dudek: After missing two full seasons with torn anterior cruciate ligaments, the 6-foot-1, 185-pound senior returned to catch 24 passes last season and will be part of a solid group of receivers. He will be a big part of the plans of new offensive coordinator Rod Smith, who formerly worked with Rich Rodriguez at Arizona. Expect Illinois to force opponents to defend the width of the field more than in past seasons.

Mike Epstein: Saw action in only five games a year ago, but still managed to lead the Fighting Illini in rushing. Epstein averaged 6.1 yards per carry, gaining 346 yards on 57 carries. Now healthy, he joins a group of returning backs that includes Ra\u2019Von Bonner, Dre Brown and Reggie Corbin.

Del\u2019Shawn Phillips: Plays in the heart of a linebacking corps that is part of a young front seven, returning just three starters in a group that will work in front of a secondary which returns all four starters. Phillips, a 6-2, 220-pound senior, led the Fighting Illini with 85 tackles a year ago after arriving as a junior college transfer.

On the rise

Ricky Smalling: Was a late addition to the Fighting Illini training camp last season, but worked his way into the lineup as a wide receiver for 10 games and led Illinois with 510 receiving yards on 31 catches. His average of 16.5 yards per catch led Illinois last season.

Newbie

A.J. Bush: A graduate transfer from Virginia Tech, the 6-foot-4, 220-pound quarterback is currently battling incumbent Cam Thomas for the starting role in the Illini offense. Illinois is the fourth stop in Bush\u2019s college career. He spent two seasons at Nebraska and spent one year at Iowa Western Community College before playing for the Hokies. The Georgia native played in five games as a back-up at Virginia Tech, completing 7-of-11 passes for 99 yards in addition to running for 135 yards.

The big number

15: Number of players who transferred following a 2017 season which saw Illinois go winless in Big Ten play for the first time in school history.

Coach speak

\u201cWhen you start 15 true freshmen and one redshirt freshman (as Illinois did in 2017), it tells you where you are and what you\u2019re doing with your program. That\u2019s where we are. Those players got a lot of valuable experience last year. We\u2019ve seen them get bigger, stronger, faster off the field and their football knowledge has grown quite a bit. Now, it\u2019s time for year three to produce results.\u2019\u2019 \u2013 Lovie Smith, Illinois coach

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Aretha Franklin, the undisputed \"Queen of Soul\" who sang with matchless style on such classics as \"Think,\" ''I Say a Little Prayer\" and her signature song, \"Respect,\" and stood as a cultural icon around the globe, has died at age 76 from pancreatic cancer.

Publicist Gwendolyn Quinn tells The Associated Press through a family statement that Franklin died Thursday at 9:50 a.m. at her home in Detroit. The statement said \"Franklin's official cause of death was due to advanced pancreatic cancer of the neuroendocrine type, which was confirmed by Franklin's oncologist, Dr. Philip Phillips of Karmanos Cancer Institute\" in Detroit.

The family added: \"In one of the darkest moments of our lives, we are not able to find the appropriate words to express the pain in our heart. We have lost the matriarch and rock of our family. The love she had for her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and cousins knew no bounds.\"

The statement continued:

\"We have been deeply touched by the incredible outpouring of love and support we have received from close friends, supporters and fans all around the world. Thank you for your compassion and prayers. We have felt your love for Aretha and it brings us comfort to know that her legacy will live on. As we grieve, we ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time.\"

Funeral arrangements will be announced in the coming days.

Franklin, who had battled undisclosed health issues in recent years, had in 2017 announced her retirement from touring.

A professional singer and accomplished pianist by her late teens, a superstar by her mid-20s, Franklin had long ago settled any arguments over who was the greatest popular vocalist of her time. Her gifts, natural and acquired, were a multi-octave mezzo-soprano, gospel passion and training worthy of a preacher's daughter, taste sophisticated and eccentric, and the courage to channel private pain into liberating song.

She recorded hundreds of tracks and had dozens of hits over the span of a half century, including 20 that reached No. 1 on the R&B charts. But her reputation was defined by an extraordinary run of top 10 smashes in the late 1960s, from the morning-after bliss of \"(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,\" to the wised-up \"Chain of Fools\" to her unstoppable call for \"Respect.\"

Her records sold millions of copies and the music industry couldn't honor her enough. Franklin won 18 Grammy awards. In 1987, she became the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Clive Davis, the music mogul who brought her to Arista Records and helped revive her career in the 1980s, said he was \"devastated\" by her death.

\"She was truly one of a kind. She was more than the Queen of Soul. She was a national treasure to be cherished by every generation throughout the world,\" he said in a statement. \"Apart from our long professional relationship, Aretha was my friend. Her loss is deeply profound and my heart is full of sadness.\"

Fellow singers bowed to her eminence and political and civic leaders treated her as a peer. The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was a longtime friend, and she sang at the dedication of King's memorial, in 2011. She performed at the inaugurations of Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, and at the funeral for civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks. Clinton gave Franklin the National Medal of Arts. President George W. Bush awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, in 2005.

Franklin's best-known appearance with a president was in January 2009, when she sang \"My Country 'tis of Thee\" at Barack Obama's inauguration. She wore a gray felt hat with a huge, Swarovski rhinestone-bordered bow that became an Internet sensation and even had its own website. In 2015, she brought Obama and others to tears with a triumphant performance of \"Natural Woman\" at a Kennedy Center tribute to the song's co-writer, Carole King.

Franklin endured the exhausting grind of celebrity and personal troubles dating back to childhood. She was married from 1961 to 1969 to her manager, Ted White, and their battles are widely believed to have inspired her performances on several songs, including \"(Sweet Sweet Baby) Since You've Been Gone,\" ''Think\" and her heartbreaking ballad of despair, \"Ain't No Way.\" The mother of two sons by age 16 (she later had two more), she was often in turmoil as she struggled with her weight, family problems and financial predicaments. Her best known producer, Jerry Wexler, nicknamed her \"Our Lady of Mysterious Sorrows.\"

Franklin married actor Glynn Turman in 1978 in Los Angeles but returned to her hometown of Detroit the following year after her father was shot by burglars and left semi-comatose until his death in 1984. She and Turman divorced that year.

Despite growing up in Detroit, and having Smokey Robinson as a childhood friend, Franklin never recorded for Motown Records; stints with Columbia and Arista were sandwiched around her prime years with Atlantic Records. But it was at Detroit's New Bethel Baptist Church, where her father was pastor, that Franklin learned the gospel fundamentals that would make her a soul institution.

Aretha Louise Franklin was born March 25, 1942, in Memphis, Tennessee. The Rev. C.L. Franklin soon moved his family to Buffalo, New York, then to Detroit, where the Franklins settled after the marriage of Aretha's parents collapsed and her mother (and reputed sound-alike) Barbara returned to Buffalo.

C.L. Franklin was among the most prominent Baptist ministers of his time. He recorded dozens of albums of sermons and music and knew such gospel stars as Marion Williams and Clara Ward, who mentored Aretha and her sisters Carolyn and Erma. (Both sisters sang on Aretha's records, and Carolyn also wrote \"Ain't No Way\" and other songs for Aretha). Music was the family business and performers from Sam Cooke to Lou Rawls were guests at the Franklin house. In the living room, the shy young Aretha awed friends with her playing on the grand piano.

Franklin occasionally performed at New Bethel Baptist throughout her career; her 1987 gospel album \"One Lord One Faith One Baptism\" was recorded live at the church.

Her most acclaimed gospel recording came in 1972 with the Grammy-winning album \"Amazing Grace,\" which was recorded live at New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in South Central Los Angeles and featured gospel legend James Cleveland, along with her own father (Mick Jagger was one of the celebrities in the audience). It became one of of the best-selling gospel albums ever.

The piano she began learning at age 8 became a jazzy component of much of her work, including arranging as well as songwriting. \"If I'm writing and I'm producing and singing, too, you get more of me that way, rather than having four or five different people working on one song,\" Franklin told The Detroit News in 2003.

Franklin was in her early teens when she began touring with her father, and she released a gospel album in 1956 through J-V-B Records. Four years later, she signed with Columbia Records producer John Hammond, who called Franklin the most exciting singer he had heard since a vocalist he promoted decades earlier, Billie Holiday. Franklin knew Motown founder Berry Gordy Jr. and considered joining his label, but decided it was just a local company at the time.

Franklin recorded several albums for Columbia Records over the next six years. She had a handful of minor hits, including \"Rock-A-Bye Your Baby With a Dixie Melody\" and \"Runnin' Out of Fools,\" but never quite caught on as the label tried to fit into her a variety of styles, from jazz and show songs to such pop numbers as \"Mockingbird.\" Franklin jumped to Atlantic Records when her contract ran out, in 1966.

\"But the years at Columbia also taught her several important things,\" critic Russell Gersten later wrote. \"She worked hard at controlling and modulating her phrasing, giving her a discipline that most other soul singers lacked. She also developed a versatility with mainstream music that gave her later albums a breadth that was lacking on Motown LPs from the same period.

\"Most important, she learned what she didn't like: to do what she was told to do.\"

At Atlantic, Wexler teamed her with veteran R&B musicians from Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, and the result was a tougher, soulful sound, with call-and-response vocals and Franklin's gospel-style piano, which anchored \"I Say a Little Prayer,\" ''Natural Woman\" and others.

Of Franklin's dozens of hits, none was linked more firmly to her than the funky, horn-led march \"Respect\" and its spelled out demand for \"R-E-S-P-E-C-T.\"

Writing in Rolling Stone magazine in 2004, Wexler said: \"It was an appeal for dignity combined with a blatant lubricity. There are songs that are a call to action. There are love songs. There are sex songs. But it's hard to think of another song where all those elements are combined.\"

Franklin had decided she wanted to \"embellish\" the R&B song written by Otis Redding, whose version had been a modest hit in 1965, Wexler said.

\"When she walked into the studio, it was already worked out in her head,\" the producer wrote. \"Otis came up to my office right before 'Respect' was released, and I played him the tape. He said, 'She done took my song.' He said it benignly and ruefully. He knew the identity of the song was slipping away from him to her.\"

In a 2004 interview with the St. Petersburg (Florida) Times, Franklin was asked whether she sensed in the '60s that she was helping change popular music.

\"Somewhat, certainly with 'Respect,' that was a battle cry for freedom and many people of many ethnicities took pride in that word,\" she answered. \"It was meaningful to all of us.\"

In 1968, Franklin was pictured on the cover of Time magazine and had more than 10 Top 20 hits in 1967 and 1968. At a time of rebellion and division, Franklin's records were a musical union of the church and the secular, man and woman, black and white, North and South, East and West. They were produced and engineered by New Yorkers Wexler and Tom Dowd, arranged by Turkish-born Arif Mardin and backed by an interracial assembly of top session musicians based mostly in Alabama.

Her popularity faded during the 1970s despite such hits as the funky \"Rock Steady\" and such acclaimed albums as the intimate \"Spirit in the Dark.\" But her career was revived in 1980 with a cameo appearance in the smash movie \"The Blues Brothers\" and her switch to Arista Records. Franklin collaborated with such pop and soul artists as Luther Vandross, Elton John, Whitney Houston and George Michael, with whom she recorded a No. 1 single, \"I Knew You Were Waiting (for Me).\" Her 1985 album \"Who's Zoomin' Who\" received some of her best reviews and included such hits as the title track and \"Freeway of Love.\"

Critics consistently praised Franklin's singing but sometimes questioned her material; she covered songs by Stephen Sondheim, Bread, the Doobie Brothers. For Aretha, anything she performed was \"soul.\"

From her earliest recording sessions at Columbia, when she asked to sing \"Over the Rainbow,\" she defied category. The 1998 Grammys gave her a chance to demonstrate her range. Franklin performed \"Respect,\" then, with only a few minutes' notice, filled in for an ailing Luciano Pavarotti and drew rave reviews for her rendition of \"Nessun Dorma,\" a stirring aria for tenors from Puccini's \"Turandot.\"

\"I'm sure many people were surprised, but I'm not there to prove anything,\" Franklin told The Associated Press. \"Not necessary.\"

Fame never eclipsed Franklin's charitable works, or her loyalty to Detroit.

Franklin sang the national anthem at Super Bowl in her hometown in 2006, after grousing that Detroit's rich musical legacy was being snubbed when the Rolling Stones were chosen as halftime performers.

\"I didn't think there was enough (Detroit representation) by any means,\" she said. \"And it was my feeling, 'How dare you come to Detroit, a city of legends \u2014 musical legends, plural \u2014 and not ask one or two of them to participate?' That's not the way it should be.\"

Franklin did most of her extensive touring by bus after Redding's death in a 1967 plane crash, and a rough flight to Detroit in 1982 left her with a fear of flying that anti-anxiety tapes and classes couldn't help. She told Time in 1998 that the custom bus was a comfortable alternative: \"You can pull over, go to Red Lobster. You can't pull over at 35,000 feet.\"

She only released a few albums over the past two decades, including \"A Rose is Still a Rose,\" which featured songs by Sean \"Diddy\" Combs, Lauryn Hill and other contemporary artists, and \"So Damn Happy,\" for which Franklin wrote the gratified title ballad. Franklin's autobiography, \"Aretha: From These Roots,\" came out in 1999, when she was in her 50s. But she always made it clear that her story would continue.

\"NWS:
NWS: Fog

A good Thursday to all. Dense fog will start off our morning commute with high temps in the mid-80s. Here's how the weather picture shakes out from the National Weather Service.

1. Dense fog advisory in effect until 9 a.m.

\"NWS:
NWS: Thunderstorms

A NSW dense fog advisory is in effect until 9 a.m. for the Quad-City region.

Patchy, dense fog with visibilities under one-half mile will continue to develop through sunrise. Drivers should exercise caution as visibilities may change suddenly over very short distances. Low lying areas and river valleys are most at risk for seeing dense fog.

A dense fog advisory means visibilities will frequently be reduced to less than one quarter mile. If driving, slow down, use your headlights, and leave plenty of distance ahead of you.

Otherwise the day will be mostly cloudy with a high near 84 degrees. There's a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after 4 p.m. with heavy rainfall is possible. The Storm Prediction Center has a marginal risk of severe storms for areas along and south of U.S. 30. If severe storms develop the primary risk would be damaging winds.

Overnight, there's a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 5 a.m. along with patchy fog. Otherwise, it will be mostly cloudy with a low around 67 degrees. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch are possible with higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

Friday brings a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms before 1 p.m. with patchy fog before 7 a.m. Otherwise, the day will be partly sunny with a high near 83 degrees and a low around 65.

2. Proposed Portillo's rezoning advances toward final discussion

\"070218-portillos-004\"

This is the corner of Fairhaven Road and 53rd Street, Monday, July 2, 2018, where a neighbor has a Notice of Rezoning Request sign in their yard.

Following weeks of public debate over the issue, Davenport aldermen have advanced a proposal to bring the first Portillo\u2019s restaurant to the Quad-Cities toward final consideration for next week.

\"Portillos\"
Portillos

At issue is a proposal to designate a piece of land for commercial use to make way for the possibility of adding Portillo\u2019s, a popular Chicago-based restaurant, and several other businesses to northeastern Davenport, which has become a hot spot for local development. \u00a0On one hand is the developer, who says the project would help boost the local economy; on the other are neighbors questioning whether the restaurant plaza would negatively affect their homes.

3. Caleb's miracle: 'Everything they said he couldn\u2019t do, he is doing'

\"081518-caleb-claussen-01a.jpg\"

Tess Peters, physical therapist, and Sarah Ybarra, occupational therapist, hold onto Caleb Claussen, 7, while he practices strength-building exercises\u00a0at the Genesis Pediatric Therapy Center on Wednesday.

A Walnut, Ill., boy has proven to be a tough nut to crack.

Caleb Claussen, 7, was involved in an accident involving a motorized scooter and a tanker truck last September, but has fought back from his many injuries.

Caleb will be honored during a Quad-Cities River Bandits game at 6:35 p.m. Friday at\u00a0Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport during a salute to Genesis Outpatient Pediatric Therapy's GOPEDS program.

Neurologists had predicted that Caleb would stay in a vegetative state for the rest of his life after being hit by a truck while riding a scooter near his home in Bureau County. Read more.

4. Von Maur expands as other retailers close doors

\"081418-qct-qca-vonmaur-003\"

Entrance to the Dry Goods store inside NorthPark Mall, Davenport.

As it defies national trends and continues to grow, Von Maur has been viewed as a \"tortoise\" in a retail industry filled with hares, its CEO said.\u00a0

Rather than rushing to open a certain number of stores each year, President and CEO Jim von Maur said the Davenport-based company has taken a slow and steady approach.

The strategy\u00a0helped Von Maur continue to open new locations during the 2008 recession. And today, as big box retailers\u00a0\u2014 including national competitor Younkers \u2014 close stores or declare bankruptcy, Von Maur is readying to open its 34th location in 15 states. Read more.

5. Davenport man charged with stealing, trafficking guns

\"Kody

Kody Ray Brinkley

A Davenport man was arrested Tuesday night in connection with the theft of several guns from a Davenport home in May.

Kody Ray Brinkley, 23, last known address in the 800 block of West 17th Street, was booked into the Scott County Jail on charges of second-degree theft, trafficking in stolen weapons, and conspiracy to commit a non-forcible felony. Read more.

6. 'Party of the summer:' Tailgaters ready for a Riverfront Pops' 'Beach Boys' concert

\"081917-POPS-CONCERT-019\"

Audience members stake out their spots in Davenport's LeClaire Park before last year's riverfront pops.

When the gates open at LeClaire Park on Saturday, if things go like they have in past years, Patricia Cummings and her husband, George, will be second or third in line.

Photos: Riverfront Pops — The Beatles’ Greatest Hits

\u201cWe\u2019ve never been first,\u201d Patricia Cummings, 66, said, adding she typically arrives two hours before the gates open. \u00a0

As the hours goes by, thousands of people will fill the park ahead of the 36th annual Quad-City Bank & Trust Riverfront Pops, in which members of the Quad-City Symphony Orchestra will play songs from The Beach Boys\u2019 album, \u201cPet Sounds.\u201d

However unlikely, the occasion has turned into, in Cummings\u2019 words, the \u201cParty of the summer.\u201d And the party starts well before the music kicks off. Read more.

BONUS 6. Ask the Times: The meaning of the sirens

\"siren\"
siren

A Quad-City Times reader \"Asks the Times\" the following question: \"How do Quad City residents distinguish between a siren that means a thunderstorm is coming versus a siren that means, \"Take cover, we have spotted a tornado?\" Please don't tell me it is the same siren. We can hear thunder and lightning for the former but need a clear sign when it is the latter.\"

Kane County didn\u2019t miss its 10th-inning target Wednesday night at Modern Woodmen Park.

The same couldn\u2019t be said for the Quad-Cities River Bandits, who dropped a 2-1 Midwest League decision to the Cougars in extra innings.

The game was decided on two balls hit to center field, one which led Kane County to its sixth consecutive win and another which denied Quad-Cities a chance to extend the game.

Yoel Yanqui, who began the 10th on second base and advanced on a fly out, scored the winning run from third when Marty Costes dropped a fly ball off the bat of Tim Susnara and then committed a second error on the play when he attempted to throw the ball.

Kyler Stout took the mound for Kane County in the bottom half of the 10th and struck out Miguelangel Sierra as Michael Papierski watched from second.

Jonathan Lacroix followed by dropping a single into shallow center and, waved around third, Papierski headed to the plate. Tra Holmes\u2019 throw home arrived in plenty of time for Susnara to tag out Papierski.

Lacroix took second on throw, but Stout retired Scott Schreiber on three pitches to record the 14th strikeout of the game by Kane County pitchers.

Kane County threatened often in the latter innings, unable to score after loading the bases with no outs in the eighth and stranding a pair of runners in the fifth through eighth innings.

River Bandits reliever Brendan Feldmann worked out of that jam in the eighth after the Cougars used a hit batter between a pair of singles to load the bases.

Feldmann tagged out Susnara at home for the first out of the inning after catcher Cesar Salazar chased down a pitch that skipped past the plate.

A strikeout and a pop up chased down in shallow left field by third baseman David Hensley ended the Kane County threat.

Quad-Cities stranded the potential go-ahead run in scoring position in the bottom half of the eighth when Colton Shaver was hit by a pitch with one out, advanced on a groundout and was left on base when Hensley grounded out to second.

Papierski drove a ball to the wall in right center for the final out in the bottom of the ninth, sending the teams into extra innings with a 1-1 score that had stood since the teams traded runs in the fifth.

During that fifth inning, Kane County pushed across a run on a Ryan Dobson single to end a string of 34 consecutive scoreless innings worked by Quad-Cities pitchers dating to the sixth inning of a Saturday game against Cedar Rapids.

Eudy Ramos scored the game\u2019s first run after collecting the Cougars\u2019 first hit of the game on a one-out single up the middle.

He advanced when River Bandits starter Luis Garcia issued his third walk of the game before giving Kane County a short-lived lead on the single to center by Dobson.

Costes then rattled his second hit of the game off the base of the wall in right-center field, a double that opened the Quad-Cities half of the inning.

After advancing on a groundout by Papierski, Costes scored the game-tying run when Sierra lashed a sharp single into left.

For five innings, Clinton LumberKings starter Ryne Inman was cruising, allowing no hits or walks and striking out six.

Then came the sixth inning.

The Beloit Snappers scored six runs in the sixth, turning a 0-0 pitchers duel into a rout and sending the LumberKings to a 9-1 loss.

The trouble started with Inman (4-9) walking the first two hitters. A throwing error by Clinton catcher Juan Camacho brought home the first run, and a Nick Allen double and Austin Beck single plated two more before Matt Clancy replaced Inman.

Beloit went right to work against Clancy, as Hunter Hargrove drew a walk and Logan Farrar singled to load the bases before Miguel Mercedes' RBI single made it 4-0. A Jack Meggs RBI force out and a Ryan Gridley RBi single completed the inning's scoring.

Mercedes also homered in the eighth to give the Snappers an insurance run.

Jean Ruiz (5-9) threw six scoreless innings of relief for Beloit to get the win.

Clinton's lone run came in the ninth. Keegan McGovern was hit by a pitch to lead off the inning and, two outs later, came around to score on Johnny Adams' RBI single.

Following weeks of public debate over the issue, Davenport aldermen on Wednesday advanced a proposal to bring the first Portillo\u2019s restaurant to the Quad-Cities toward final consideration for next week.

At issue is a proposal to designate a piece of land for commercial use to make way for the possibility of adding Portillo\u2019s, a popular Chicago-based restaurant, and several other businesses to northeastern Davenport, which has become a hot spot for local development. \u00a0On one hand is the developer, who says the project would help boost the local economy; on the other are neighbors questioning whether the restaurant plaza would negatively affect their homes.

In recent weeks several neighbors have raised concerns about the city infrastructure, including flooding problems and traffic jams. They offered similar comments to city officials during a committee hearing on Wednesday night.

Among them was Charlotte McManus, who has lived in the area with her husband for decades. She told council members they have a \u201cresponsibility\u201d to watch after the concerns she and her neighbors share.

Mike Meloy, a Bettendorf attorney who is representing a dozen neighbors opposed to the idea, called on the council members to apply two conditions needed to ease their concerns: new black top on Lorton Avenue between 53rd and 46th streets and changing Lorton Avenue into a cul-de-sac.

\u201cThe neighborhood needs some protection here,\u201d Meloy said, adding that neighbors \u201cwould be content\u201d with the new zoning classification so long as those conditions are met.

Meanwhile, the real estate developer, William Torchia, asked council members to \u201ctake a moment and look at the other side of the coin,\u201d saying the new businesses would create several ongoing jobs in the area, increase the value of the property and put about $6.5 million toward construction labor for the build.

Representing the area slated for the proposed development is Alderman Rich Clewell, 6th Ward. Clewell said he planned to consider and consult with city staff about the points brought to council on Wednesday, saying he is still listening to those concerns and \u201cwill listen until we vote.\u201d

\u201cEverybody won\u2019t be happy,\u201d he added. \u201cHardly any time is everybody happy about decisions that are made. But we\u2019ll move forward as a city, and what we do will be the best thing for Davenport, I\u2019m certain.\u201d

David Hereid Jr. was pursuing his dream of becoming a firefighter and emergency medical technician in the Quad-Cities when about 10 or 11 years ago, he said he awoke one day with severe pain in his right eye.

Hereid, now 44, was treated for pink eye at the time, but then his left eye began to hurt.

As his eyesight began to fail, Hereid searched for specialists who finally were able to give him a diagnosis: multifocal choroiditis, an inflammatory disorder that causes swelling of the eye and lesions in the choroid, a layer of blood vessels between the white of the eye and the retina, according to the Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center.

\u201cIt\u2019s my own body attacking the back of my eye,\u201d Hereid said. After numerous attempts with surgeries and injections into the eye, he and his doctors these days control the symptoms as they come on and work to stop or slow the diseases progression.

His deteriorating eyesight prevented him from chasing his career dreams. \u201cI loved helping people and that\u2019s what I wanted to do.\u201d

Hereid said his eyesight now is 20/500. \u201cTo drive you need 20/40 vision,\u201d he said. Normal eyesight is 20/20.

Before December, Hereid had never really seen his wife, nor has he been able to watch his 9-year-old stepdaughter, Ashlynn Housby, play baseball. He and Robbin sit at the games and Robbin describes to him what is happening and when Ashlynn steps up to the plate. \u201cWhen she\u2019s batting, I listen for the ping of the bat,\u201d he said.

\u201cHow I view the world is like looking through a cloudy fishbowl,\u201d he said.

But in December, just after Christmas, Hereid and his wife, Robbin, took a trip to Des Moines to try a new electronic type of eyewear made by eSight, which produces electronic eye glasses for the visually impaired. He learned about them after his wife saw something about them on Facebook or the Rachael Ray Show and he told him about them.

They took a chance and gave the glasses a try.

\u201cImagine my surprise when I saw my wife for the very first time,\u201d Hereid said. \u201cThis was the first time I was able to see my wife\u2019s facial expressions without literally being in her grill. I was able to tell if she was wearing makeup. She wasn\u2019t. It was a Saturday.

\"The glasses raise my vision to 20/30,\u201d he said.

Of the glasses, Hereid said, \u201cThey were the most amazing things I\u2019ve seen in my life.\u201d

Ashlynn did not go with them. They didn\u2019t even tell her they were going to test the new technology. \u201cWe didn\u2019t want her to get her hopes up,\" he said

But Hereid\u2019s father, David Hereid Sr., said his son called him \u201cand he told me the glasses weren\u2019t for him.\u201d

\u201cI was presuming they didn\u2019t work but the real reason is the glasses cost $10,000,\u201d Hereid Sr. said. \u201cSo about three months ago, we started doing fundraisers. We\u2019ve raised $3,000 and if we get to $9,000 a person has said he will donate the last $1,000.\u201d

They will be host another fundraiser from 5-9 p.m. Saturday at Triple Play, 1601 9th Ave. in Fulton, Illinois.

Hereid Jr. has never given up hope or work. He even ran for Davenport mayor in 2015. He\u2019s also a full-time, on-line student at Rasmussen College in Rockford, Illinois, studying to be a paralegal.

\u201cI\u2019m not doing badly for a blind guy,\u201d he said. \u201cWhen I ran for mayor only three people knew, Bill Gluba, Ray Ambrose found out and Rick Dunn knew.\u201d

With the electronic glasses, Hereid said he can work full time in his desired field. \u201cI can\u2019t be a frontline firefighter or EMT, but I could go back into those services in different areas. And I could still pursue a career as a paralegal. The options would be wide open.\u201d

Saturday\u2019s fundraiser will have a silent auction, 50/50 drawing, a raffle, food and a disc jockey.

Among the items included in the auction are a Green Bay Packers signed football, a Minnesota Vikings signed miniature helmet, Clinton 8 Theater tickets, a Rhythm City Casino overnight stay with a breakfast buffet and 10 tickets to a hockey game in a private suite at the TaxSlayer Center. Also up for grabs are four tickets to a Quad-City River Bandits\u2019 baseball game, and a weekend car rental from Lexus of the Quad-Cities, plus many other items.

Height and weight scales are in place for patients, and the new Genesis HealthPlex is on schedule to open this month in west Davenport.

Within the next week-and-a-half, more than 100 employees across multiple areas of care will move into the two-story, 43,000-square-foot facility at 3200 W. Kimberly Road, touted as a one-stop-shop clinic.

Marking a first for Genesis Health System, family practice and pediatrics will coexist in the same building, across the street from the Walmart Supercenter. The $13.6 million HealthPlex also will house Genesis Convenient Care, physical therapy, two labs, radiology and a designated area for visiting specialists, including behavioral therapists and sports medicine physicians.

Upward of 30,000 patients will receive care at the site, Dr. Kurt Andersen, Genesis Health Group\u2019s executive medical officer, said Wednesday during a tour of the property.

\u201cThat\u2019s a big part of why we wanted to be here,\u201d he said. \u201cWe take care of a lot of patients in west Davenport, so to have a facility that combines all of these services and adds some things that we\u2019ve never had before, improves access for the community.\u201d

\"Genesis

Dr. Kurt Andersen,\u00a0Genesis Health Group\u2019s executive medical officer, talks about the benefits of the small waiting area in the family practice section of Davenport's new HealthPlex.\u00a0

Teams comprised of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and support staff will work together to provide better, more efficient care, a model taken from Genesis\u2019 other two HeatlhPlex facilities in Bettendorf and Moline, Andersen added.\u00a0

Individuals covered by Medicare and Medicaid made up about 52 percent of the health group's patient population last fiscal year, which ended June 30.

Relocating from 53rd Street and Northwest Boulevard, an eight-room urgent care unit will open next Friday, Aug. 24, on the first floor of the new Davenport facility. The radiology department and a lab will open the same day; family practice and pediatrics, both on the second floor, and physical therapy on the first floor, will debut Monday, Aug. 27.

HealthPlex will combine the current family medicine practices nearby on Division Street and at 53rd Street and Northwest Boulevard as well as Genesis' pediatrics and physical therapy services from West Campus.

\"Genesis

To avoid a disruption in service, family practice and pediatric providers are moving into their new digs next weekend.

\"They're in the last-minute push for getting all those school physicals, immunizations and sports physicals done,\" Andersen said.

The 54-room family practice section will have seven physicians and two nurse practitioners; the 17-room pediatric wing will have four physicians and one nurse practitioner.

Davenport-based Estes Construction and BLDD Architects, which has an office in Davenport, completed the buildout. MedCraft Healthcare Real Estate in Minneapolis covered half of the construction costs and owns the building.

\"Genesis

The new facility at 3200 W. Kimberly Road, Davenport, is Genesis' third HealthPlex, joining\u00a0its existing facilities in Moline and Bettendorf.

Refrigerators ordered to store flu vaccines were delivered Wednesday as landscaping crews worked on the grounds. Meanwhile, artwork, furniture and computer equipment still need to be installed on both floors. Patient rehearsals and an open house for the public will be held next week.

\"We have a long way to go,\" clinic manager Kristy Speer said.\u00a0

According to Andersen, who worked 15 years as a family practice physician, west Davenport residents deserve this clinic.

\"They're hardworking people,\" he said. \"They come in, they ask you what you think they should do and they usually do it.\"\u00a0

CEDAR RAPIDS \u2014 Sen. Chuck Grassley admits some nervousness with the current state of trade policies but said farmers he spoke with during recent meetings in Iowa aren\u2019t abandoning President Donald Trump.

Farmers have \u201cgreat anxiety\u201d about the ongoing tariff situation, Grassley told reporters Wednesday. However, \u201cpanic\u201d would not accurately describe what he heard from farmers at 20 question-and-answer sessions Grassley has held during the Senate\u2019s abbreviated state work session.

The Farm Bill, trade and renewable fuels were among the most common topics in those meetings, along with questions about the Supreme Court \u2014 \u201cnot as many as I thought we would get\u201d \u2014 and immigration, he said.

\u201cI don\u2019t find people really giving up on Trump,\u201d Grassley said. \u201cI never had any farmers tell me they were throwing in the sponge on Trump because of his trade policies. They want him to succeed. Some have even gone so far as to say that even though there is some hurt now, he\u2019s doing the right thing. They just hope he gets it done with pretty fast.\u201d

That pretty much describes where Grassley\u2019s at, too.

\u201cAs a farmer and a senator who has to speak up for my constituents, I\u2019d have to say I\u2019m nervous, but I haven\u2019t thrown in the sponge either,\u201d Grassley said.

He sees Trump\u2019s meeting with the president of the European Union as a success and is encouraged by reports that a trade deal with Mexico will be completed as early as this month.

\u201cIf we get an agreement with Mexico, they think it will fall in pretty quickly with Canada,\u201d he said.

Resolving differences with China may take longer.

Kelly Bethke knows it's not a great situation for her Augustana College volleyball team as it starts camp this week.

The installation of the new gym floor in the Carver Center is well behind schedule, and that means when Bethke welcomes her club to campus today, it won't be for practice in their home facility. Instead, the sixth-year Viking coach will head across the Mississippi River with her 30-plus member squad to the new TBK Bank Sports Complex in Bettendorf for workouts.

\"Obviously, it's not ideal. We want to be here at Augustana every step of the way,\u201d said Bethke. \u201cBut we're excited for the new floor and understand that sometimes things take longer than expected. It's been frustrating, don't get me wrong. But it wasn't a huge surprise they were behind schedule.\u201d

According to Mike Zapolski, Augustana athletic director, the wood portion of the Carver Center floor project was originally scheduled for completion on July 27. The east-end portion was originally scheduled for completion on Aug. 10. On Tuesday, workers were still sanding the main playing surface in preparation for painting and sealing.

According to Zapolski, the new floor is now expected to be done on Aug. 26. After a much-needed deep cleaning, he is hoping the team can be in the gym on the 30th. A rubber, multi-use surface will be installed in the east end of the facility, and that is now pinpointed for a Sept. 21 completion.

The Vikings are scheduled to open the home portion of their season on Wednesday, Sept. 5, against the University of Dubuque.

\u201cIt's been difficult with the logistics,\u201d said Bethke of being transplanted from the team's home gym for workouts. \u201cThere has been so much to prepare for in practices, and now we have to get to another location and make that work. Now we'll be driving the team out there in vans twice a day for the first couple of days. After school starts, it makes it kind of difficult because our classes go until 4:20, and we want to get practice started by 5. Just making sure that everybody gets out there safely and in a timely manner is our biggest concern.\u201d

Making this situation a little easier is the fact that Bethke and the Viking coaches are familiar with the TBK facility. With the Carver gym floor torn up all summer, as it needed to be replaced because of water damage that occurred June 2017, she held her summer camps at the new Bettplex. According to Zapolski, the college is covering expenses for use of the Bettplex as the volleyball or athletic department budgets are not taking that hit.

\u201cIt's a brand-new, beautiful facility with top-of-the-line courts, so that'll be good,\u201d said Bethke, who returns seven seniors and eight juniors this fall. \u201cThe space itself is too big for us, but we'll still be able to get done what we need to get done. It's not the atmosphere we want; we want to play at the Carver Center. We're really excited about the new (floor) and getting back here.\u201d

In the interim, she hopes to make the best of a tough situation with the help of those at the TBK Sports Complex.

\u201cThey were good about scheduling when we needed to be there,\u201d said Bethke. \u201cWe're going to practice the same amount as if we were at the Carver Center. The players are going to work just as hard, and we're going to get as much accomplished on their courts as we would on our courts. We'll be ready.\u201d

Even with being displaced from the team's home at Carver Center, Bethke was able to find a bright spot out of the bad situation.

\u201cOne would be that it's an air-conditioned facility,\u201d she joked. \u201cWe haven't had that before at Augustana. For the first time since being here I haven't checked the weather a million times to see how hot it will get in the Carver Center. I think our players are going to appreciate that more than anybody.\u201d
