The U.S. government has removed most of the children from a remote Border Patrol station in Texas following reports that more than 300 kids were detained there and caring for each other with inadequate food, water and sanitation.

Rep. Veronica Escobar said 30 children were at the facility near El Paso as of Monday. Her office was briefed on the situation by an official with Customs and Border Protection.

Attorneys who visited the station in Clint, Texas last week said older children were trying to take care of infants and toddlers, The Associated Press first reported Thursday. Some had been detained for three weeks, and 15 children were sick with the flu.

It's unclear where all the children have been moved. But Escobar said some were sent to another facility in El Paso.

LAUSANNE, Switzerland \u2014 Italy will host the 2026 Olympics in Milan and Cortina d'Ampezzo, taking the Winter Games to the Alpine country for the second time in 20 years.

International Olympic Committee members voted for the long-favored Milan-Cortina bid over Stockholm-Are from Sweden that also included a bobsled track in Latvia.

Milan-Cortina's jubilant delegation broke into chants of \"Italia! Italia!\" when the result was announced.

Italy last hosted in Turin in 2006, and the Alpine ski resort Cortina previously hosted the Winter Games in 1956.

Sweden's spirited late campaign effort was in vain, including the mayor of Stockholm appealing to voters from the stage by singing a lyric from Abba song 'Dancing Queen'.

A sign of simmering Swedish frustration came minutes later when IOC board member Gunilla Lindberg pushed the limit of Olympic diplomacy ending her team's 30-minute presentation.

Lindberg challenged her colleagues to reward a new kind of creative, cost-effective bid the IOC has said it wanted \u2014 \"Or is it just talk?\"

Instead, IOC members picked Italy despite a debt-hit economy which faces increasing European Union scrutiny.

\"We submit with full confidence to your judgment,\" Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte told voters.

Both candidates would likely have failed to get this far in previous Olympic bidding contests.

The IOC has relaxed previously strict rules that demanded financial guarantees and government support earlier in the process.

It was an attempt to revive Winter Games bidding with just two candidates on the ballot paper for the second straight time, since Russia spent $51 billion on venues and infrastructure for the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Now, the IOC seeks to avoid costly new venues \u2014 and potential white elephants \u2014 while encouraging regions and multi-nation bids to share the load. Hence, Sweden teamed with Latvia, across the Baltic Sea, rather than build its ice sliding sports venue.

\"We have budget problems in Italy but I think that this is something that everyone has,\" Italy Undersecretary of State Giancarlo Giorgetti said at an earlier news conference, citing the wealth of the Lombardy and Veneto provinces underwriting the games costs.

\"They are two of the richest provinces in Europe,\" Giorgetti said. \"They certainly have the capacity, they have the readiness, they have the finances in order to be able to support the event.\"

The IOC will contribute at least $925 million toward Italy's games operating costs of up to $1.7 billion. Building athlete villages in Milan and Stockholm shaped as the main capital investment and most uncertain ventures in the projects.

Last week, the IOC flagged Stockholm's village as a risk, and asked for more details of guarantees underwriting the project.

\"A letter of intent is as important to us as any contract,\" Volvo chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg said in the formal presentation, in what seemed a rebuke to the Olympic body.

The day-long meetings began with each bid in closed-door sessions with IOC members. The Swedish bid was challenged to prove its support from a Stockholm city authority coalition formed last October and a national government only five months ago.

Sweden Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said he assured voters \"it's in the Swedish model, it's in our DNA\" to deliver a stable Winter Games.

Still, a big plus for the Italian bid \u2014 uniting Milan, the Alpine ski resort of Cortina d'Ampezzo, and several towns in between \u2014 was the IOC's own polling. It found support from local residents around 85% compared to 60% in Sweden.

The 2026 contest meets the IOC President Thomas Bach's long-stated wish to return to traditional heartlands for winter sports after major construction projects from 2014-2022 in Russia, South Korea, and China.

The signature Swedish feature using the ice sliding sports track in Sigulda, Latvia, that meets the IOC's demand to use established sports venues.

The IOC has praised both candidates for projecting sports budgets \"on average 20% lower\" than spending on the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics and 2022 Beijing Olympics.

During the traditionally slick and emotional pleas to be awarded the games, Stockholm mayor Anna Konig Jerlmyr reminded voters of Sweden's most famous music act.

\"Abba is everywhere,\" she said, before singing the lyric: \"You can dance, you can dance, having the time of your life.\"

With more gravitas, Nobel Foundation executive director Lars Heikenstein spoke of Olympic values being an inspiration. Olympic leaders have long coveted a Nobel Peace Prize for the organization.

Sweden's heir to the throne, Crown Princess Victoria, joined a 100-plus delegation at the Swisstech convention center though did not take part on stage.

Italy's bid was livened by two Olympic champions, downhill skier Sofia Goggia and snowboarder Michela Moioli, doing a dab gesture and talking of their hopes to compete on home snow in almost seven years' time.

Sweden's wait for a first Winter Games goes on.

A male juvenile suffered non-life-threatening injuries in a shooting Monday morning at Pershing Avenue and Pershing Court in Davenport.

Davenport police responded to the scene at 9:29 a.m. for a report of shots fired. During a canvas of the area, officers found the male. He was transported to a local hospital.

No other information, inducing the age of the male, was released Monday.

Police ask anyone with information to call the police department at 563-326-6125 or submit an anonymous tip via our mobile app \u201cCityConnect Davenport, IA.\u201d

Don Gilbralth, who lives in the area, said he was watching TV when he heard what he thought was seven gun shots.\u00a0

Police have not said how many shots were fired or how many times the male was hit.\u00a0

HAMPTON \u2014 Two days into the multi-agency search for a man who fell into the Mississippi River, teams of searchers are still on the water.

Dave Johnson, Hampton fire and rescue chief, said crews will be on the water all week. The operation likely will continue until Friday night, he said, although inclement weather might temporarily force crews off the river.

The victim, a 35-year-old man from the Rockford area, has not been found. Search efforts that began Saturday as a \u201crescue\u201d have since transitioned to a \u201crecovery.\u201d

The man, whose name has not been released, is thought to have fallen into the swiftly moving river on Saturday afternoon near Lock and Dam 14, on the Hampton side of the dam.

According to eyewitnesses, the man was standing on the rocks along the river bank when he fell in and was quickly swept up into the water. A bystander immediately jumped in after him but was unable to find him.

Johnson emphasized that although the river has dropped below flood stage, conditions remain dangerous.

\u201cThe current, even though the water is dropping, it\u2019s still higher than it usually is,\u201d he said. \u201cThe water is still moving extremely fast.\u201d

The spot at which the man fell in has one of the \u201cmost extreme\u201d currents in the area, Johnson added.

\u201cWith the location of where he went in out there, next to the rollers, that\u2019s the worst-of-the-worst spot,\u201d Johnson said.

The search has been a collaborative effort between several agencies, including Hampton, Bettendorf, East Moline, Cordova, Port Byron, the Illinois and Iowa departments of natural resources and others.

Relatives of the victim have been present on the scene but did not provide information.

\u201cThey\u2019re just looking for closure, as we all are,\u201d Johnson said.

Quad-City Times Publisher Debbie Anselm said \"We, along with IHMVCU, are inspired by good deeds we witness across the region. This is a unique opportunity to thank Quad-Citizens for what they have done and will continue to do.\"

For many Quad-Citans whose daily commute takes them across the Interstate 74 Bridge, the span rarely gets a second thought.

Taking the 74 bridge comes as naturally as pumping gas.

For some, though, driving across the too-narrow old bridge between Moline and Bettendorf is so unnerving a proposition, they will go miles out of their way to find another route.

In fact, Bettendorf Police Chief Keith Kimball said some motorists have become so frightened by the narrow, shoulderless lanes and fast-moving traffic, they have lost their nerve, mid-way.

\u201cIt\u2019s fairly rare, but we\u2019ve had to go up and help people cross because they became frozen,\u201d Kimball said last week.

Crash reports from the Bettendorf and Moline police departments suggest some fear and hesitation are earned.

And this year\u2019s weather and bridge construction are adding to the span\u2019s menacing reputation.

Less than halfway into 2019, the crash counts on the bridge have surpassed or are close to surpassing year-end totals from 2017 and 2018.

Bettendorf police already have responded to more wrecks on the 74 bridge this year than they did in all of 2017, according to records provided to the Quad-City Times.

In 2017, 2018 and nearly half of 2019, the two police departments have responded to 211 wrecks on the bridge itself\u00a0\u2014 not counting the crashes on the half-dozen ramps that provide access in and out of the two downtowns.

So far this year, the bridge has been the scene of at least 68 crashes; again, not counting the ramps.

But police and Department of Transportation officials say the new bridge will deliver motorists much more safely across the Mississippi River.

As Kimball pointed out, each span of the new bridge will be at least two times wider, but the new crossing and approach configurations also will eliminate the biggest trouble spots.

The hands-down most perilous point in the corridor crossing is at the State Street exit into Bettendorf, crash data and police indicate.

\u201cI don\u2019t want to call it a blind spot, but it comes up on you,\u201d Kimball said of the approach to the exit ramp, where the roadway drops into a downward angle just after the bridge itself.

\u201cTraffic backs up there at times, and it\u2019s also a slick spot in cold weather,\u201d the chief said. \u201cIf you\u2019re exceeding the speed limit, you\u2019ve left yourself no room for error.\u201d

The absence of shoulders also deprives drivers of a last-minute way of avoiding a collision.

The same goes for the recent increase in crashes before the exit ramp, leading into Iowa.

The area in which Iowa-bound bridge traffic merges from two lanes to one was creating so many problems, the DOT relocated the merge point, trying to make it safer.

Now the state is reworking the exit to remove the merge point entirely and permit two lanes of traffic across the bridge and into downtown Bettendorf.

\u201cI think anything we can do to not have that merge \u2026 I\u2019m hoping that will be a good thing, but, again, people have to go the speed limit,\u201d Kimball said.

For Illinois-bound motorists, exiting the bridge is a straight shot, but only briefly.

The interstate just past the bridge contains curves that will be eliminated with the reconfiguration. Those curves in the interstate-speed area of the corridor are particularly menacing in bad weather.

\u201cWith the new alignment, it\u2019s a lot straighter on the Illinois side,\u201d Moline Mayor Stephanie Acri said.

And that\u2019s been the point all along.

The current bridge has long been recognized as dated and inadequate. It has for decades been carrying more vehicles that it was designed to accommodate. But the design itself also has been recognized for its risks.

\u201cFrom the federal perspective, safety was the key,\u201d Acri said. \u201cThat was a hugely significant component to their financial outlay for the project.

\u201cWe\u2019re eliminating the scary part of the bridge\u00a0\u2014 the narrowness of the lanes and the number.\u201d

But the new bridge also is supplying longer ramp lengths, which also will help reduce the number of rear-end collisions in areas, such as the exit into downtown Bettendorf.

Based on our studies prior to construction, the most frequent crash types in the corridor are rear-end, fixed-object and sideswipe,\" said Danielle Alvarez, I-74 project manager for the Iowa DOT. \"These types of accidents experienced within the project corridor are common in areas where roadways are narrow, no shoulders are available, and where ramps do not have the storage capacity to quickly remove vehicles from the main roadway.

\"The I-74 project will improve the ramp designs by providing a longer distance for vehicles to enter and exit the interstate, which should help reduce crashes on the ramps. The I-74 project also includes constructing new additional lanes, as well as full shoulders, which should help reduce multi-vehicle (typically rear-end and sideswipe) crashes, particularly during peak hours.\"

The U.S. government has removed most of the children from a remote Border Patrol station in Texas following reports that more than 300 kids were detained there and caring for each other with inadequate food, water and sanitation.

Rep. Veronica Escobar said 30 children were at the facility near El Paso as of Monday. Her office was briefed on the situation by an official with Customs and Border Protection.

Attorneys who visited the station in Clint, Texas last week said older children were trying to take care of infants and toddlers, The Associated Press first reported Thursday. Some had been detained for three weeks, and 15 children were sick with the flu.

It's unclear where all the children have been moved. But Escobar said some were sent to another facility in El Paso.

LAUSANNE, Switzerland \u2014 Italy will host the 2026 Olympics in Milan and Cortina d'Ampezzo, taking the Winter Games to the Alpine country for the second time in 20 years.

International Olympic Committee members voted for the long-favored Milan-Cortina bid over Stockholm-Are from Sweden that also included a bobsled track in Latvia.

Milan-Cortina's jubilant delegation broke into chants of \"Italia! Italia!\" when the result was announced.

Italy last hosted in Turin in 2006, and the Alpine ski resort Cortina previously hosted the Winter Games in 1956.

Sweden's spirited late campaign effort was in vain, including the mayor of Stockholm appealing to voters from the stage by singing a lyric from Abba song 'Dancing Queen'.

A sign of simmering Swedish frustration came minutes later when IOC board member Gunilla Lindberg pushed the limit of Olympic diplomacy ending her team's 30-minute presentation.

Lindberg challenged her colleagues to reward a new kind of creative, cost-effective bid the IOC has said it wanted \u2014 \"Or is it just talk?\"

Instead, IOC members picked Italy despite a debt-hit economy which faces increasing European Union scrutiny.

\"We submit with full confidence to your judgment,\" Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte told voters.

Both candidates would likely have failed to get this far in previous Olympic bidding contests.

The IOC has relaxed previously strict rules that demanded financial guarantees and government support earlier in the process.

It was an attempt to revive Winter Games bidding with just two candidates on the ballot paper for the second straight time, since Russia spent $51 billion on venues and infrastructure for the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Now, the IOC seeks to avoid costly new venues \u2014 and potential white elephants \u2014 while encouraging regions and multi-nation bids to share the load. Hence, Sweden teamed with Latvia, across the Baltic Sea, rather than build its ice sliding sports venue.

\"We have budget problems in Italy but I think that this is something that everyone has,\" Italy Undersecretary of State Giancarlo Giorgetti said at an earlier news conference, citing the wealth of the Lombardy and Veneto provinces underwriting the games costs.

\"They are two of the richest provinces in Europe,\" Giorgetti said. \"They certainly have the capacity, they have the readiness, they have the finances in order to be able to support the event.\"

The IOC will contribute at least $925 million toward Italy's games operating costs of up to $1.7 billion. Building athlete villages in Milan and Stockholm shaped as the main capital investment and most uncertain ventures in the projects.

Last week, the IOC flagged Stockholm's village as a risk, and asked for more details of guarantees underwriting the project.

\"A letter of intent is as important to us as any contract,\" Volvo chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg said in the formal presentation, in what seemed a rebuke to the Olympic body.

The day-long meetings began with each bid in closed-door sessions with IOC members. The Swedish bid was challenged to prove its support from a Stockholm city authority coalition formed last October and a national government only five months ago.

Sweden Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said he assured voters \"it's in the Swedish model, it's in our DNA\" to deliver a stable Winter Games.

Still, a big plus for the Italian bid \u2014 uniting Milan, the Alpine ski resort of Cortina d'Ampezzo, and several towns in between \u2014 was the IOC's own polling. It found support from local residents around 85% compared to 60% in Sweden.

The 2026 contest meets the IOC President Thomas Bach's long-stated wish to return to traditional heartlands for winter sports after major construction projects from 2014-2022 in Russia, South Korea, and China.

The signature Swedish feature using the ice sliding sports track in Sigulda, Latvia, that meets the IOC's demand to use established sports venues.

The IOC has praised both candidates for projecting sports budgets \"on average 20% lower\" than spending on the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics and 2022 Beijing Olympics.

During the traditionally slick and emotional pleas to be awarded the games, Stockholm mayor Anna Konig Jerlmyr reminded voters of Sweden's most famous music act.

\"Abba is everywhere,\" she said, before singing the lyric: \"You can dance, you can dance, having the time of your life.\"

With more gravitas, Nobel Foundation executive director Lars Heikenstein spoke of Olympic values being an inspiration. Olympic leaders have long coveted a Nobel Peace Prize for the organization.

Sweden's heir to the throne, Crown Princess Victoria, joined a 100-plus delegation at the Swisstech convention center though did not take part on stage.

Italy's bid was livened by two Olympic champions, downhill skier Sofia Goggia and snowboarder Michela Moioli, doing a dab gesture and talking of their hopes to compete on home snow in almost seven years' time.

Sweden's wait for a first Winter Games goes on.

Pointing to terminal and parking improvements, plus plans for a major solar project, Executive Director Ben Lesichner said he expects this to be a \u201cyear of change\u201d for the Quad City International Airport.

Leischner, who previously worked at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport for 14 years, recently finished his first year as director of the airport in Moline. Despite dealing with harsh weather and a federal government shutdown, Leischner said he\u2019s been focused on \u201cbuilding a foundation\u201d for the airport to grow.

That has included surrounding himself with an executive team, entering into an agreement with Uber and Lyft,\u00a0and\u00a0\u201cstabilizing\u201d passenger numbers.

John Malvik, chairman of the Metropolitan Airport Authority of Rock Island County, also boasted of Leischner\u2019s restructuring of the QCIA Airport Services, LLC, which services aircraft. He said the limited-liability company is now \u201cprofitable for the first time.\u201d

\u201cThis first year was really looking at every business arrangement we had at the airport and being really focused on sustainable business practices,\u201d Leischner said. \u201cThis coming year, we\u2019re going to be looking at capital projects and really get into what we want to do in the future.\u201d

As the airport wraps up the fiscal year, and the airport authority board budgets for the next, Leischner said he has big plans for the coming year, much of them focused on helping the Quad-Cities region expand.\u00a0

Solar project and parking upgrades

One major project for the airport in the coming year may be the development of covered parking outside of the terminal that will double as a solar array system.

The airport authority board has discussed the potential for a solar project, which Leischner wants to use to bring a \u201chigher level of service for passengers.\u201d An engineer has been studying the feasibility of the project, he said, and a request for proposals will be sent to developers.

The solar system would be attached to the roof of the terminals, as well as to new infrastructure that the director envisions as covering the parking lot to protect passengers from snow or rain.

\u201cSo it\u2019s really two-fold\u00a0\u2014 you have renewable energy, which is fantastic as a major energy user, and then the added benefit of covered parking,\u201d he said. \u201cWe\u2019re looking at how to tie it into the existing infrastructure of the terminal. The electrical engineer did the design, and it\u2019s very feasible.\u201d

The airport is looking to enter into a power purchase agreement with an independent developer who would fund, build and maintain the system at little to no cost for the airport, and then take advantage of solar incentives. The other option would be a lease, Leischner said. He expects the construction to cost between $3 million and $4 million.

Eventually, Leischner would like to cover the entire drive outside of the terminals, including the roadway and walkways. He pointed to the tent-like covers outside airport terminals in Rochester, N.Y., which are built to withstand any weather and are equipped with lighting.

In the meantime, he said, the airport is looking to make facade improvements to the outside of the terminals, including replacing outdated signs and flooring.

\u201cI really want to turn my attention to some kind of face-lift at the front of the terminal,\u201d he said.

Passenger experience

The airport this past year has started making indoor improvements to boost customer service, Leischner said. The changes range from adding massage chairs to improving the coffee stand.

Leischner said he's starting off with small \u201ctweaks\u201d and wants to make more changes in the coming year. They could include adding a play area children could enjoy while parents wait to catch flights. He also wants to update the restrooms by adding new fixtures.

At the check-in, Leischner is looking to update flight information display systems and signs.\u00a0\u00a0

And, following the addition of Caribou Coffee, he\u2019s looking to attract more businesses to serve customers at the airport.

\u201cI like the idea of the airport being a reflection of the community we serve, so putting out a request for small businesses that want to be part of the airport,\u201d he said. \u201cPart of our job outside of air service is to stimulate commerce in the region, so we have to have businesses that are thriving.\u201d

Regional growth approach

In the past year, Leischner said, the airport has seen growing passenger numbers, recovering from 2017, when the number of enplanements dropped more than it had in several years.

\u201cWe\u2019ve been seeing that decline since AirTran left the market, and that seemed like a really good challenge to me,\u201d he said. \u201cWe\u2019ve started to see an uptick, but I think it\u2019s more of equalizing and flattening out. Where we go from here will really be based on what we do as a region and if we bring more businesses in the area.\u201d

He's working with the Quad Cities Chamber and Visit Quad Cities, and he said the area needs a regional action plan to determine how to market the Quad-Cities and attract more businesses and residents.

He\u2019s also looking at attracting new air service\u00a0\u2014 potentially a flight to Charlotte\u00a0\u2014 and increasing flight activity to Denver.

Looking ahead at the budget, Leischner said he\u2019s more focused on a fee structure to fund projects, charging the people who park and use the airport rather than taxing the entire community.

Leischner and Malvik both said if other airports, such as the one in Peoria, again push for new legislation to expand their tax bases, the Moline airport could also join the initiative.

Malvik said he\u2019s interested in expanding the taxing authority to include all of Rock Island County, while others have debated creating a bi-state tax base.

But Leischner said he\u2019s more interested in focusing on helping the region grow so the airport\u2019s growth can follow. He\u2019s looking to lease out vacant space surrounding the airport in Moline, including the industrial park and area that could be taken over by new restaurants and retail outlets.

He also wants to increase support of the general aviation industry. This past year, the airport has added a lounge and self-fueling system for general aviation pilots. And Leischner wants to partner with a college to launch a training program for pilots.

\u201cThere\u2019s this looming issue with the pilot shortage, and it\u2019s going to start to hit the industry pretty hard in the next year, especially in small communities like the Quad-Cities,\u201d Leischner said. \u201cI want to make sure we\u2019re doing what we can to support that pipeline for pilots. It\u2019s a fantastic career choice.\u201d

If you've been bothered by gnats this summer, someone you know may have recommended you try Bug Soother. It's an all-natural spray that comes in a dark green bottle, smells good, and works!

You can get it at Hy-Vee. And Ace Hardware, Theisen's, Fareway, Casey's and Amazon. It's the official repellent of the John Deere Classic, and next year it will be sold in Walgreen stores nationwide. It's even sold in the United Kingdom, Grand Cayman and Scandinavia.

And every bit of this hot commodity is made in Columbus Junction, a small Louisa County town about 60 miles southwest of the Quad-Cities. The repellent is the brainchild of Freda Sojka, a retired Monsanto employee who developed the formula in 2008 for her 5-month-old grandson. She didn't want to expose him to harsh chemicals.

Since then, Bug Soother has become an unlikely and wildly successful product that has nearly her entire family \u2014 and many members of her extended family \u2014 scrambling this summer to supply orders that pile up faster than they can be filled.

\"We're crazy busy,\" Sojka said one recent day, sitting in a cluttered, catch-all room of a converted bowling alley that is one of the company's two main buildings. \"I think this will be a record year.\"

The previous record of $2.7 million in gross sales was set in 2014 when Bug Soother first \"went viral,\" as Sojka describes it. But sales could be double that this year because of widespread flooding that has produced bumper crops of gnats, driving up demand.

As she talks, an employee knocks on the door to say that a young man, a high school junior, has walked in asking about a job. Sure, Sojka says, hire him on.

\"We're 3,500 orders behind, and we can't catch it,\" she said.

The reason Simply Soothing is so busy is that it is a small company \u2014 just six full-time employees \u2014 that happened to develop a winning product and, with hard work and expert business advice, has grown exponentially seemingly overnight.

\"It just blew up,\" Sojka said.

The full-timers and about 40 part-timers are working as fast as they can, sometimes into the night. Yes, the company could make and ship more product if it expanded, but there hasn't been time.

And expansion could have pitfalls.

After several successive years of not keeping up with demand early on, Sojka learned to stock up over winter.

But then came the relatively dry years of 2016 and 2017 when there were too few gnats, and business took a dive. Sojka ended up with \"way too much inventory\" just sitting in the warehouse.

That lesson has stuck, and taught her to be cautious. \"I don't want to run short, but I sure don't want that to happen again,\" she said. She knows the crazy busy times \"won't last forever.\"

How Bug Soother came to be

In 2003, Sojka was nearing retirement from Monsanto where she had worked for 22 years, including in a lab, although she wasn't a chemist.

But she did have a creative side that she fed by developing hand creams, lotions, lip balm, soap and related products. She and her daughter, Nikki Salek, founded Simply Soothing to sell these items and opened a small shop.

Bug Soother came into being in 2008 because Sojka wanted a bug repellent for her 5-month-old grandson that did not contain DEET. She researched ingredients on the internet, mixed them together and, voila!

\"It's nothing new,\" she said of lemongrass oil, the product's active ingredient. \"There's lots of plants that repel insects. I didn't invent anything.\"

She gave a bottle to her sister to try. \"Her home on the Cedar River had been flooded (during the devastating flood of 2008), and the gnats were terrible,\" Sojka said.

\"Some men from the Carolinas were measuring flood waters, and trying to work in a swarm of gnats. She gave them a quick spritz and the gnats went away.\"

The next morning, a man was at her front door, saying his crew wanted more of that bug spray. When he bought all she had, she knew she was onto something.

\"It wasn't something I planned,\" she said. \"It was something that took on a life of its own. I didn't plan anything. ... Who would have ever dreamed,\" she said, her voice trailing off.

Her marketing began \u2014 and in many ways continues \u2014 on the grassroots level by giving away bottles and letting recipients advertise by word-of-mouth.

In 2010, she began selling to golf courses within a 60-mile radius and, in 2011, she got Bug Soother placed into a grocery store and then a grocery distribution company.

In 2012, the company bought a larger building, increased production and, in 2013, got accepted by two Ace Hardware distribution centers.

Learning about business

Although Sojka had developed a \"really good product that solved a problem,\" there is a lot to learn about running and growing a business.

She learned that, in order to be sold, Bug Soother first had to be approved by the federal Environmental Protection Agency, then be registered in every state in which it is sold, meeting each state's specific requirements and paying the accompanying registration fee.

\"It's a nightmare,\" Sojka said. So far, the product is registered in 45 of the 50 states, classified as \"a minimum risk pesticide.\"

Then three years ago, the federal government changed requirements so Bug Soother had to be reformulated.

Sojka hasn't been shy about reaching out for help.

She praises staff at the Center for Industrial Research and Services, or CIRAS, based at Iowa State University, Ames, and the nonprofit Entrepreneurial Development Center, or EDC, in Cedar Rapids, for help in connecting the company with resources, providing guidance and acting as a sounding board.

With EDC, \"if you're struggling with a big company, you can send them the paperwork and they will say, 'No don't do this,' or 'Send this to your lawyer' or 'I recommend you do this,'\" she said.

CIRAS stressed to \"always look where your restrictions are, your bottlenecks, and work on those problems as they come up.\"

Knowing that one needs help and willingness to seek it out is one of the qualities that sets Simply Soothing apart from some other businesses, Curt Nelson, EDC president, said.

\"They are a team that's willing to take outsiders' advice,\" he said. Some beginning businesses \"think they know everything,\" he said.

Another quality that sets them apart is that \"they simply don't quit,\" Nelson said. \"They've weathered storms over the years and they just continue to push hard 12 months a year. They're an excellent example of what a successful entrepreneur looks like.\"

Sales on Amazon

For a time Sojka resisted selling on Amazon because of the negative impact the e-commerce giant has on brick and mortar stores. But she relented, hiring a Cedar Rapids company to navigate the complicated ins-and-outs.

\"They're expensive and I complained a lot in the beginning, but oh my gosh, it's paid off. They're sharp, sharp guys.\" They understand algorithms, search engine optimization and how to place ads.

\"I don't know what we're doing now, but the last time I looked, we were doing $30,000 a day in sales on Amazon,\" she said in mid-June. \"Before I hired them, we had maybe $20,000 or $30,000 a month. And it would be more if we had the product.

\"It's exposure on a huge level that you can't get traditionally.\"

Even with all the demand, she tries to mete out the supply so that every customer gets at least a portion of what it orders.

\"People say, 'Go after the big ones.' I say, 'No, we go to the little ones, too.'\"

The future

At present, demand is mercurial, swinging wildly depending on the weather and number of bugs. \"I hate to say it, but we need flooding,\" she said.

Consequently, Sojka finds herself in a pattern of hiring people, then laying them off.

A major goal is to figure out a way to make demand less seasonal so the company can offer steady, year-round jobs with good benefits and wages.

Another goal is to consolidate into one building.

Meanwhile, growth continues.

New this year is the Bug Soother Candle. Although Sojka knows how to make candles, there was no way she could add candles to the company's production, so she contracted with Milkhouse Candles to make them at its New Hampton, Iowa, location.

She also signed a deal with another company that is making Bug Soother under the name Medella Naturals, selling it in Kroger stores.

Getting into Walgreens next year \u2014 \"That is just huge for us,\" she said. Cracker Barrel also has expressed interest.

And for several years now, Bug Soother has been sold internationally. That came about when a British entrepreneur read about the product online, contacted the company, and eventually set up a deal in which Simply Soothing ships the core ingredients to Scotland, where water is added and the product is bottled and sold throughout the U.K. and Europe.

In winter, when demand slows down, Sojka and her husband Jim will drive in their new camper to a spot on the Alabama Gulf Coast and regroup. There she will make calls, send emails, plan and strategize.

The store

Meanwhile, Simply Soothing maintains a store, a former diner on Iowa 92, that's not open now. There aren't enough people to staff it, and retail in Columbus Junction, population 2,000 by the 2010 Census, is mostly non-existent.

But Sojka holds onto the store because her heart is there, and there will be business around the holidays.

It is stocked with products of her own making, as well as items from about 20 vendors selling quillows (quilts that fold up into pillows), jewelry, metal yard sculptures, wine and knitted caps.

\"That's my favorite part, developing new products,\" Sojka said, eyeing jars of shea butter and air fresheners. \"But that's the way it is when you have a business. You end up doing stuff you don't like instead of stuff you like. That's the way it is. You have to pay the bills.\"

ROCK ISLAND\u00a0\u2014 Former 2nd Ward Alderman Virgil Mayberry continued to bill personal expenses to the city in recent months, even after he lost his bid for re-election in April.\u00a0

The Dispatch-Argus-QCOnline.com in February submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the expense reports and receipts of all seven of Rock Island's aldermen going back to 2015. That resulted in a story detailing personal expenses billed to the city by Mayberry.

Another FOIA request was then submitted for Mayberry's expense reports and receipts for March 2019 through the end of May. Mayberry was defeated by Randall Hurt in the\u00a0April 2 municipal election, but his term ran through May 13.

Aldermen are allotted $4,000 per year in expenses \u2014 $2,000 for the representation fund and $2,000 for the professional development fund, which is supposed to cover the cost of continuing education. The amount was raised in 2016 from $1,000 in each fund. Aldermen also are paid an annual stipend of $6,000, regardless of how many city council meetings they attend.

Documents show Mayberry spent more than $1,100 in three months on clothing, newsletters, postage and gasoline.

\"I have done nothing wrong,\" Mayberry said Friday. \"I don't have a criminal record. You need to print the truth and get off of me.\"

Mayberry declined to answer questions about any of his recent expenses billed to the city. He said inquiries into his expenses are based on racism.

\"That's what this is all about; we're not ignorant,\" Mayberry said. \"We have an educated society that knows the difference between a lie and the truth. You've turned me into some kind of monster with the haters. The good Christian people know better than that.\"

The city has an expense policy, but its rules focus mainly on travel expenses for conferences.

Mayberry did not turn in receipts for five purchases made from March through May and had to fill out \"lost receipt\" affidavits.\u00a0

Vests, jackets and hats

On March 25, Mayberry paid Stecker Graphics $60 to custom embroider vests for him.\u00a0

On April 23, three weeks after Mayberry lost the election, he charged $264.43 to Land's End.\u00a0

He spent $79.95 on an \"arctic gray\" insulated jacket, $19.99 on a red vest, $19.99 on a green vest, $59.95 on an \"atlas yellow\" outrigger mesh-lined jacket, and $27.90 for two hats. He spent an additional $6.95 per item to have logos stitched on them.\u00a0

The insulated jacket and the two caps were placed on back order until August, so they were removed from the total, leaving the city to pay the remaining amount of $156.68.\u00a0

\"That should be a personal expense,\" Mayor Mike Thoms said. \"Virgil\u00a0has been requested to pay that back. We are working on changing the policy.\"

\"I feel it\u2019s inappropriate,\" Thoms said. \"Our plan is to tighten these things up soon. My hope is that it\u2019s on the agenda next and adopted. The city is not ignoring this issue. We want everyone to have a clear understanding of what is acceptable and what is not with taxpayers\u2019 money.\"

Finance Director Stephanie Masson said in April the money for council members' expense funds comes out of the city's general fund. If the money is not spent by aldermen, it remains in the general fund and can be used to pay for other city services.\u00a0

Gasoline and newsletters

During the months of March, April and May, Mayberry filled his gas tank eight times, charging $284 on the city's credit card. The last charge was on May 13, Mayberry's last day in office.\u00a0

City Clerk Judith Gilbert told the Dispatch-Argus in April that only city employees with city vehicles are allowed to charge gasoline, and all other city officials are asked to submit mileage for reimbursement.

Mayberry spoke at the June 10 city council meeting and defended his use of his city credit card to buy gasoline.\u00a0

\"For three years, I drove back and forth, several times a day, to my constituents to find out their problems,\" Mayberry said June 10. \"The last year, I charged for that gas. Why? I felt I should do that.\"

On Friday, Mayberry continued to defend charging gasoline to the city as an employee of the city.\u00a0

\"I did the numbers. The first three and a half years, I spent my John Deere pension money on gas and oil looking at residents' concerns,\" he said. \"I shouldn't have had to do that. From October until when I left, I started charging gas up to $600. There was something wrong with that?

\"I did not abuse anything,\" Mayberry said. \"It's like I robbed a (expletive) bank. I ain't done nothing. I resent it; my family resents it; and my friends resent it.\"

On April 17, Mayberry spent $519 to send newsletters to residents in his ward. The credit-card charges included $194.72 to Stecker Graphics for printing the newsletters, $277.20 for postage, and $47.18 for mailing labels at the county clerk's office.\u00a0

Documents show Mayberry reimbursed the city $30.50 for the purchase of mailing lists from the county clerk's office on Feb. 14.

City council may not OK charges

Rock Island's three new aldermen\u00a0\u2014 Hurt; Jenni Swanson, Ward 4; and Mark Poulos, Ward 6 \u2014 said they will vote against approving Mayberry's expenses at Monday's city council meeting.\u00a0

\"Some of the expenses are questionable, and I will not approve them,\" Swanson said. \"(Land's End) is one charge I am going to bring up and refuse to approve. I don't know why (Mayberry) would do that after he lost the election.

\"I made a list of all the expenses from aldermen from April and May. I am really angry about the purchase card (charges). As a taxpayer, I don't feel my money should be spent that way.\"

If the expenses are not approved, Thoms said, Mayberry will be asked to reimburse the city for those expenditures.\u00a0

\"There is no paycheck anymore, so short of a court order, there will be a formal request to him for reimbursement,\" Thoms said. \"It\u2019s the city\u2019s credit card, so it\u2019s going to be paid no matter what. The city should take whatever action is necessary to get reimbursed.\"

Aldermen are schduled to hold a study session at 5:30 p.m. Monday, July 8, to discuss revising the city's expense policy.\u00a0

The Clinton LumberKings got a strong pitching performance Sunday, beating the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers 4-1 at Fox Cities Stadium.

Tyler Jones (2-4) pitched five innings, allowing two hits and striking out four to grab the win, while Tyler Mitzel pitched 3\u2153 innings, striking out four and allowing two hits and Zach Wolf closed out the game for his fourth save of the year.

Clinton took a 2-0 lead on an RBI ground out from Marcos Rivera that scored Peyton Burdick. Connor Scott added to the lead with an RBI single later in the inning. The LumberKings added two runs in the seventh inning to up their lead to 4-0 before Wisconsin's David Fry hit his 11th home run of the year in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Scott led the offense with three hits and an RBI as Clinton rattled off 12 hits in the game.

Four defensive players who fit what Iowa coaches are looking for are the latest to make the Hawkeyes their college fit.

Defensive end Lukas Van Ness, linebacker Jay Higgins and defensive backs Brenden Deasfernades and AJ Lawson all made verbal commitments to join the Iowa program after taking official visits during the Hawkeyes\u2019 biggest recruiting weekend of the year.

While Van Ness, a 6-foot-5, 240-pound defensive end from Barrington, Illinois, selected the Hawkeyes from a collection of 31 scholarship offers at the Division I level, Iowa was the first program from a power-five conference to offer the other three newest members of its 2020 recruiting class.

Lawson and Higgins have been on the radar of Hawkeye coaches for some time while Deasfernades received the first of his four college offers earlier this month, including three after he caught the eye of coaches at the Lindenwood Camp in suburban St. Louis.

That is where Iowa coaches first saw the 6-1, 160-pound defensive back from Belleville, Michigan, and they got an even closer look when he attended a camp in Iowa City one week ago and was named the camp\u2019s defensive most valuable player.

That led to an official visit this past weekend where Deasfernades was offered and accepted an Iowa scholarship offer.

The only other offers he had when he said \u201cyes\u2019\u2019 to the Hawkeyes were from Southeast Missouri State and Davenport University, which both offered after the Lindenwood camp, and from Northwood which offered Deasfernades before Iowa secondary coach Phil Parker caught his first look at him.

\u201cEverything has happened so fast,\u2019\u2019 Deasfernades said. \u201cThe chance to play in the Big Ten, to play at Iowa, how do you say \u2018no\u2019 to that? It\u2019s big time. I\u2019m really hyped about it.\u2019\u2019

Deasfernades is the third defensive back from the Belleville program in suburban Detroit to accept an Iowa scholarship program in as many years.

Kaevon Merriweather, a sophomore listed as the Hawkeyes' starting strong safety in the program\u2019s most recent public depth chart, signed with Iowa in 2018 and Jalen Hunt was part of the Hawkeyes\u2019 2019 recruiting class but will begin his college career this fall at Iowa Western Community College.

Lawson, a 6-2, 180-pound defensive back from Decatur MacArthur High School in Illinois, and Higgins, a 6-0, 209-pound linebacker from Indianapolis Brebeuf Jesuit, join Van Ness in having a multi-sport background that Iowa coaches like.

In the Illinois Class 2A state track and field championships, Lawson finished eighth in the high jump, while Higgins excels in basketball and Van Ness plays hockey.

Lawson led MacArthur in receptions and interceptions last season, earning all-area honors while returning two of his five picks last season for touchdowns.

He selected Iowa over an offer from Minnesota and had also attracted offers from Ball State, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Kent State, Northern Illinois, Toledo, Western Michigan and Wyoming.

\u201cI would like to thank the entire coaching staff for believing in a kid from Decatur, Illinois,\u2019\u2019 Lawson wrote in announcing his decision on Twitter.

Lawson and Deasfernades join Keylon Gulley of Largo, Florida, who committed to Iowa last week, as defensive backs in the 2020 recruiting cycle.

Higgins is the first linebacker in this year\u2019s recruiting class. He made his first unofficial visit to Iowa last fall and he held offers from Air Force, Tulane and a number of Mid-American Conference schools when he made his decision Sunday.

Preparing for his third season as a varsity starter at Brebeuf, Higgins has been credited more than 200 tackles over the past two seasons. He recorded 18 tackles for a loss and broke up six passes last fall.

Van Ness grew up playing hockey and has utilized his physicality from that sport in football, picking up the game as he entered high school.

A 3.85 student, Van Ness had offers from all three service academies and a number of Ivy League programs in addition to Illinois, Kansas, Kansas State and Minnesota from the power-five level.

Van Ness joins Lawson and Higgins in being rated as three-star prospects on a five-star scale by Rivals, while Deasfernades is not currently rated by any scouting service.

With the four latest commitments, Iowa\u2019s 2020 recruiting class now numbers 18 players. The class, which can sign binding letters of intent in December, is expected to ultimately number just over 20 prospects.

They\u2019ve dodged raindrops, worked around floods and ignored frigid temperatures and power outages throughout a 45-24 start to the season, but Sunday was a first even for the climate-challenged Quad-Cities River Bandits.

The Midwest League team\u2019s series finale at Beloit was postponed because of a slippery, mud-filled mess at Pohlman Field.

Officially, the game was postponed because of unplayable field conditions, a decision reached by umpires following nearly 30 minutes of consultation with managers of both teams and the Snappers\u2019 grounds crew.

The crew had been working for hours prior to the game\u2019s scheduled 2 p.m. start to find a solution to a problem that was a byproduct of a puncture to a sprinkler system water line just below the playing surface in left field.

The puncture was believed to have been a created by a spike that was pushed into the field to hold down a tarp that was put in place following a game Saturday night to protect the infield from expected overnight rains.

The result was an area of mud estimated to have a circumference of around three feet.

The inability of crews to get the surface in shallow left field just behind the shortstop position to dry ultimately led to the decision to call the game before it ever started.

Quad-Cities is scheduled to return to Beloit later this season and Sunday\u2019s game will be made up as part of a doubleheader during a series which runs from July 27-29. The date and starting time will be determined at a later day.

The River Bandits, scheduled to play 11 of their first 13 games in the second half on the road, have a scheduled off day today before opening a two-game series with a 6:30 p.m. game Tuesday at Burlington.

HAMPTON \u2014 After another half-day of searching, the 35-year-old man from the Rockford area who reportedly fell into the Mississippi River has still not been found.

Through Sunday afternoon, Illinois and Iowa search and rescue teams have tried to find the man, believed to have fallen into the swiftly-moving river near Lock and Dam 14, on the Hampton, Ill., side of the dam.

Authorities said they were called to the scene at 4:24 p.m. on Saturday on the reporter that a man near the Illinois side of the dam had fallen into the river.

According to eyewitnesses, the man was standing on rock near the river bank when he fell into the river. Another man immediately jumped in after him but was unable to find him.

Search and rescue boats from several agencies \u2014 including Bettendorf, Silvis, East Moline, as well as Conservation Police from Iowa and Illinois \u2014 aided in searching for the missing man.

Four search and rescue boats were on the water early Sunday, but by mid-afternoon only one boat appeared on the water.\u00a0

The victim's name has not been released. Family of the victim were present on the scene but did not provide information.

This story will be updated.

A new hire in the state agriculture department will focus on companion animals.

The hire comes after a legislative session in which a proposal to strengthen Iowa\u2019s animal cruelty laws had momentum but ultimately failed, and after numerous incidents throughout the state of animal cruelty by commercial dog breeders and animal hoarding.

Animal welfare advocates say they are encouraged by the hire in the ag department\u2019s veterinary office and are hopeful it is a first step toward addressing Iowa\u2019s poor national ranking for state animal protection laws.

Iowa agriculture secretary Mike Naig recently announced the hire of Dr. Katie Rumsey as an assistant state veterinarian and said Rumsey will oversee companion animal regulatory programs.

Another assistant state veterinarian will focus on farm animal programs, leaving Rumsey to focus on laws and programs that deal with pets.

Naig said he made the decision as he looked at the entire ag department and how it could operate differently after his election to the office in November of 2018. He said Rumsey can help address what has been an increased workload.

\u201cPut this in the category of us looking at, really, all of our bureaus and our structure and our staffing at the beginning of a term,\u201d Naig said. \u201cThe animal industries, we thought, were one where we could use a change in our structure.\u201d

Iowa has hosted high-profile cases of animal neglect over the past year.

A North Iowa woman whose 154 animals were seized from a puppy mill in Manly was charged with 17 counts of animal neglect. And an outbreak of canine brucellosis, an infectious disease that can spread to humans, was traced to a central Iowa dog breeder.

\u201cI think (Rumsey\u2019s hire) will allow us to manage all of those issues better,\u201d Naig said.

Rumsey declined to be interviewed for the story because she is new to the job. But through a department spokeswoman, she emailed information about her background and what she hopes to bring to the department. She noted she has education and professional experience in both animal and human health.

\u201cI have over 14 years of experience working with companion animals and their owners,\u201d Rumsey wrote. \u201cI believe the knowledge I gained and lessons I learned working with small animals in a veterinary clinic makes me a valuable resource to the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship Animal Bureau. I\u2019m able to add another perspective to conversations about companion animal care.\u201d

Animal welfare advocates lauded the hire. They view it as a first step toward making Iowa more responsive to animal safety issues.

\u201cI think it\u2019s a long time coming, quite frankly,\u201d said Tom Colvin, CEO of the Iowa chapter of the Animal Rescue League. \u201cRealizing that the Iowa Department of Agriculture has a lot of hats they have to wear, the livestock ... they have a lot of things they have to do. But there is a whole animal welfare division that has had to be addressed almost as time permitted from the other duties from the ag end.

\u201cSo yes, I think it\u2019s a long time coming, and I think it\u2019s going to make a huge difference if someone can focus on the companion animal issues. Because they are different than the livestock issues and require somebody\u2019s undivided attention.\u201d

Haley Anderson, executive director of Iowa Voters for Companion Animals, said the recent cases of animal neglect highlighted a need for stronger state oversight, and that she is hopeful that is coming with the ag department\u2019s new hire, which she called \u201ca very positive step forward.\u201d

\u201cWe really hope under Sec. Naig\u2019s leadership that it\u2019s the first step of many to ensure humane treatment of companion animals,\u201d Anderson said. \u201cRight now the state of Iowa has approximately 1,700 state-licensed facilities that are focused on companion animals --- pet shops, kennels, borders --- and there really hasn\u2019t been resources, human or inspectors, allocated to the proper oversight.

\u201cWe look forward to working with Sec. Naig and Dr. Rumsey and (state veterinarian Jeff Kaisand) on written policies and enforcement actions, and to ensure (actions) are taken when a facility shows an unwillingness or an inability to comply with state laws.\u201d

Iowa has the nation\u2019s third-worst animal protection laws, according to annual rankings published by the Animal Legal Defense Fund. According to the rankings, Iowa falls short because the state does not make animal cruelty a felony on first offense, has a law that criminalizes undercover video recording of animals, and lacks clear legal definitions for standards of animal care.

Naig said he thinks the state has \u201crobust rules\u201d for the enforcement of animal safety laws, but added he is willing to assess those and consider possible changes. He said it is too soon to tell whether his department will make any recommendations to state lawmakers.

\u201cI believe the rules and the code are strong,\u201d Naig said.

Animal welfare organizations, on the other hand, for years have been pushing for stronger state animal safety laws. During the 2019 legislative session, a bill that would have strengthened animal cruelty laws passed the Iowa House with broad, bipartisan support; but Republican leadership in the Iowa Senate did not bring it up for a vote.

A separate bill dealt specifically with regulations and oversight of commercial dog breeders; that proposal received less traction.

Anderson and Colvin said while they are encouraged by the new state hire, they will continue to advocate for stronger animal safety laws.

\u201c(Rumsey\u2019s hiring) is a great step, but it is not a full solution at all. We definitely still need the companion animal cruelty bill,\u201d Anderson said. \u201cThat definitely needs to pass in 2020.\u201d

Colvin said he thinks the animal cruelty bill will pass next year after gaining significant momentum this past session. He described his reaction as \u201cabsolute shock\u201d when the bill was not called up for a vote in the Senate.

\u201cI have seen a solidified resolve among people, among Iowans to get this passed like no other time,\u201d Colvin said. \u201cWe have definitely let Senate leadership know to pass the bill next year.\u201d

IOWA CITY\u00a0\u2014 He led Iowa in rushing last season, but in a crowded competition for snaps at running back Mekhi Sargent doesn\u2019t take anything for granted.

\"I always look at myself as the underdog,\" Sargent said. \"I always feel like I have something to prove.\"

He hopes he\u2019s not alone.

\"I would hope that all of the backs feel that way, keep pushing, keep working, and I feel like that\u2019s probably the case,\" Sargent said.

Toren Young and Ivory Kelly-Martin return this season, and the decision to enroll early has allowed Shadrick Byrd fit in to the mix.

Sargent said Iowa\u2019s other freshman, Tyler Goodson, has made a favorable early impression since arriving on campus earlier this month.

\"They\u2019re all competitors, and that\u2019s a good thing,\" Sargent said. \"We\u2019re going to earn what we get.\"

That comes naturally for Sargent, whose football journey began in his hometown of Key West, Florida, and led to Iowa Western Community College before he found his way to Iowa.

As nice as the tropical weather may be in Key West, it\u2019s an outpost when it comes to attracting college football recruiters.

Iowa Western was the one college program at any level that offered Sargent an opportunity.

He packed his bags and took it, ready to go to work.

\"That\u2019s who I am. I always feel like I have to prove myself, and I\u2019m going to do everything I can to make that happen,\" Sargent said.

That\u2019s nothing new for Sargent.

He worked a variety of jobs as a middle school and high school student, trying to earn money for clothes and shoes he knew his mother, Yolanda Gardner, could not afford.

From harvesting mangos and limes to sell\u00a0\u2014 a job that included climbing trees\u00a0\u2014 to painting fences and working light construction jobs for his best friend\u2019s grandfather, Sargent was willing.

He mowed grass and raked rocks and sand for the city of Key West one summer and spent time working behind the counter at a Dunkin\u2019 Donuts.

\"I\u2019ve never been afraid of hard work,\" Sargent said. \"I feel like that helps me every day now.\"

It certainly put him in a position to thrive on the field and allowed him to push past any doubts that cropped up along the way.

More than a thousand miles away from home and redshirting as a true freshman at Iowa Western, there were days when the 5-foot-10, 212-pound Sargent wondered if everything would work out.

\"There were days when I would think \u2018Is this game really for me?\u2019 or wonder if because I had been asked to redshirt if I had the ability to play,\" Sargent said. \"I spent a lot of time that first year thinking.\"

He spent a lot of time the following year piling up yardage.

Sargent rushed for 1,449 yards as a redshirt freshman at Iowa Western, numbers and skill that caught the attention of Iowa recruiters.

\"They kept talking with me, but I wasn\u2019t sure if they wanted me then or if they were thinking a year down the road,\" Sargent said.

A year ago this month, he received the offer that led him to join the competition with Young and Kelly-Martin last summer.

He worked his way onto the field, a byproduct of injuries and his own effort.

Led by a 173-yard effort in Iowa\u2019s regular-season finale against Nebraska, Sargent eventually rushed for 745 yards last season as a sophomore.

He expected more.

\"It should have been 1,000,\" Sargent said. \"That was the first time since my freshman year of high school I didn\u2019t run for 1,000 yards. That\u2019s what good backs do.\"

That has provided offseason motivation.

He likes the growth he has seen in strength and conditioning areas, earning \"Golden Hawk\" status for reaching objectives under the watchful eye of strength and conditioning coach Chris Doyle and his staff.

\"I\u2019m trying to become the best version of myself that I can be,\" Sargent said.

That\u2019s where Sargent finds himself now, motivated to \"get back to normal\" and reach that plateau again, understanding that competition remains plentiful and he\u2019ll have to earn his opportunities one carry at a time.

\"I have to prove myself all over again. That\u2019s the way it works. I feel like I earned the trust of the coaches late in the season a year ago, but everybody is healthy again now and I\u2019m still out there working and doing what it takes to earn my chance all over again,\" Sargent said.

He\u2019s fine with that.

\"I\u2019ve been the underdog all my life, and the only thing I know how to do is to keep working and eventually everything will work out,\" Sargent said. \"It\u2019s never easy, but it never has been, and I don\u2019t think I would know how to deal with it any other way.\"

Adopting healthy lifestyle habits not only contributes to your physical well-being but is also good for your brain. It\u2019s never too early to start living a brain-healthy lifestyle so follow these tips to improve cognitive health as you age.

1. True or False: Things you do for heart health may help reduce some risks to your brain.

TRUE! It\u2019s said that a heart-healthy diet is also a brain-healthy diet. Think Mediterranean eating patterns with lots of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, fish and extra virgin olive oil. By eating a heart-healthy diet, reducing sodium and added sugars, you\u2019ll be working to keep your cholesterol in check as well as your blood pressure. The heart and brain blood vessels are so closely linked that conditions, like high blood pressure, can affect both organs.

2. True or False: If you haven\u2019t exercised in years, it\u2019s not safe to do so.

False! It doesn\u2019t matter how long it\u2019s been since you exercised. Start with an activity that doesn\u2019t strain your body. And consult with your doctor about the type and amount right for you.

Regular physical activity may reduce risks of diabetes, heart disease, depression and stroke, prevent falls and improve connections among brain cells.

Get at least 150 minutes of exercise each week. Move about 30 minutes on most days. If you\u2019re able, walking is a great place to start.

3. True or False: There\u2019s nothing you can do to reduce medicine-related problems.

False! While medicines can help you treat your health conditions, some can create problems for your brain. Whether you\u2019re taking prescription or over-the-counter medications, talk with your doctor if you notice changes in your cognitive function.

While you may not have control over all of your risk factors\u00a0\u2014 like genetics\u00a0\u2014 you do have control over many others like the foods you choose, your level of activity and how well you\u2019re managing other health conditions.

Now that it's fully activated, the federal prison in Thomson, Ill. is looking to bulk up its workforce.

But some officials worry holding career fairs and offering sign-on bonuses is not enough to attract 200 new employees to work in the small town. And it's even harder, according to a letter from the warden, to entice workers to live locally, whether in Thomson or surrounding communities.\u00a0

\"As our staffing levels continue to grow, the demand for homes and other amenities also increase,\" Warden Donald Hudson wrote in a letter to community members. \"Affordable and desirable housing along with good quality schools and daycare centers determine where the Bureau of Prisons' staff reside. They need apartments, rental houses, starter homes and larger homes for their expanding families.\"\u00a0

The state of Illinois sold the Thomson prison to the federal government in 2012, and for years, it's operated far below capacity. The prison started slowly ramping up hiring in 2015.

Vicky Trager, president of the village of Thomson, said the new hires at the prison\u00a0\u2014 Thomson's largest employer\u00a0\u2014 have boosted sales for some businesses in the community.\u00a0

\"The gas stations and convenience stores have seen the greatest effect from daily sales, and our local cafes and restaurants have also benefited,\" she said. \"There are a few (prison) staff members living in Thomson; some, but not all, with families. However, there hasn't been a large difference.\"

In January, the prison was officially activated, said Nicole McDowell, public information officer.

Now operating with about 400 staff members, McDowell said the prison is authorized to hire 200 more, including correctional officers and healthcare workers. The\u00a0Bureau of Prisons has designated Thomson a \"hard to fill\" prison.

As a result, it's offering a 10% incentive for correctional workers, meaning by the end of the first year, workers could receive a bonus of about $4,000.

But the warden worries the prison will continue to struggle to hire and retain workers, when for some, \"commuting a long distance is necessary.\" Some workers live as far as Dubuque, Clinton or the Quad-Cities, he said.\u00a0\u00a0

Trager said a lack of affordable, workforce housing and amenities in Thomson makes it hard to keep workers around.\u00a0

\"The majority of available housing for sale or rent in Thomson are older, single-family residences,\" she said. \"I believe there is a need for modern, market-rate, multi-unit housing to serve those who prefer the amenities and lack of maintenance ...\u00a0 Larger cities are able to offer the amenities limited or not available in Thomson such as entertainment, retail, medical, educational and housing.\"\u00a0

Now, the warden is asking residents, developers and neighboring communities to help.\u00a0

\"Therefore, I humbly request your assistance in advocating for more housing development,\" the warden wrote. \"Please do what you can to create conversations among community leadership and residential developers. I fear that without noticeable development, the lack of housing may become a determining factor against relocating to this area.\"\u00a0

McDowell said the prison is encouraging surrounding communities to build new housing developments and daycare centers.\u00a0

A lack of development in Thomson has been a longstanding problem. The institution was first built nearly 20 years ago as a state prison but didn't open because of a lack of operating funds.

Stakeholders in the community hope the warden's call to action will be the start of a new chapter in Thomson's development.

\"I believe what's needed is for developers to take Warden Hudson's letter to heart,\" Trager said. \"For years I have been told, \"I'm waiting for the prison to open before I invest\". The warden's letter is his response: AUSP Thomson is open, it is hiring, and now is the time.\"\u00a0

Graduating from college comes with a complicated mix of emotions.\u00a0

There's relief, pride, happiness, sadness, nostalgia. But after walking off the stage, diploma in hand, then throwing the graduation cap in the air, one of the strongest feelings takes hold: uncertainty.\u00a0

That, \"what do I do now?\" feeling. Abandoning the school schedule for the first time can feel like walking on a tight rope without a safety net.\u00a0

And figuring out how to handle a new job, find housing and manage finances on your own can be some of the most daunting tasks. But, Brian Ramsay, financial adviser with Wealthspan Partners, said setting and prioritizing goals can help college grads make the most of their new financial freedom.

Here are some of his tips on managing money after graduation.

Set a budget and stick to it

It might seem like an easy one, but Ramsay said the most important step in achieving your financial goals is setting a budget.

Figure out your new salary and know what your expenses are. It's a good practice to start by living below your means, rather than splurging for expensive impulse buys. But, Ramsay said it's also helpful to budget for some frugal fun.

In the budget, set aside money to build up an emergency fund, pay off debt and save for other goals, like that new car or laptop.

Ramsay also said it's important to take advantage of company retirement plans, as well as company matches on 401(k) plans.\u00a0

\"That should probably be 10 to 15% of your pay, at the very least,\" he said. \"Pay yourself first.\"\u00a0

Prioritize your goals

Setting a budget is one thing, but sticking to it is another.

Ramsay said one of the best ways to keep tabs on your finances and learn to manage them is by creating and prioritizing goals.

\"If there's something you're saving for or if you want to pay down student loans by a certain date\u00a0\u2014 that goal can help you put a plan in place and keep track of it,\" he said.

Be aggressive paying student loans

Even if you're in that six-month grace period before the first student loan payment is due, Ramsay advises being proactive in paying off loans.

He said it's important to start paying off debt as early as possible, plus pay off more each month than the required minimum.

\"Be more aggressive than what they're telling you the minimum is,\" he said. \"They're trying to make money off of the interest. So the slower it takes you to pay that, the more (the lender) will benefit. And the longer it takes to pay the loan off, the more it'll cost you in the long run.\"\u00a0

Control your credit

Graduating with student loan debt can feel unbearably burdensome, especially if you don't have a plan to deal with it.\u00a0

And, if you add credit card or other debt on top of it, it's easy to fall into dangerous habits. It's important to always pay loans on time and avoid using a credit card if you can't afford it.

\"Don't be afraid of credit. You want to establish it,\" Ramsay said. \"But you also want to make sure you can pay your expenses off every month, so you're not paying huge interest.\"

Ramsay said to avoid being frivolous, stick with your budget and focus on paying off loans before taking on new ones.\u00a0

The G20, or Group of 20, is a select group of nations representing 19 of the world\u2019s top national economies plus the European Union. Its role is to promote global economic growth, trade and labor, among others. The group\u2019s next annual meeting will be in Osaka, Japan on June 28 and 29. However, this year\u2019s agenda will be overshadowed by side discussions between the world\u2019s largest economic powerhouses\u00a0\u2014 the U.S. and China.

On Tuesday, President Trump announced that he and Chinese President Xi Xinping would hold an \u201cextended meeting\u201d at the G20 summit to discuss trade-related issues. The purpose is to restart dialogue since the collapse of trade negotiations back on May 3, when China suddenly backed away from a resolution to the ongoing U.S.-China trade dispute. In a surprise move that sent the U.S. stock markets reeling, China balked from having its verbal guarantees on unfair trade practices and its theft of American corporate assets from being placed in the written text of any new trade agreement.

In response, Trump escalated existing tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods from 10% to 25%. Three days later, China retaliated by raising tariffs to 25% on $60 billion of U.S. goods.

Since then, negotiations have been at an impasse, but further threats of escalation continue. Trump has threatened a 25% tariff on an additional $325 billion of Chinese goods\u00a0\u2014 encompassing all goods the U.S. imports from China.

Despite this resumption in trade discussions, a final compromise is not expected from this week\u2019s summit meeting. However, fruitful dialogue can lay the foundation for future negotiations.

Aside from their high-octane political rhetoric, both Trump and Xi feel the sting from the year-plus long trade dispute. In 2018, China\u2019s economic growth rate fell to its slowest pace in 28 years. This year, China\u2019s rate of growth is expected to be even lower.

For Trump, America\u2019s economy still remains relatively strong. In 2018, at the height of America\u2019s global trade disputes, the U.S. economy surged by 2.9%, well above the prior eight-year average growth rate of just 2.18%. In the first quarter of his year, economic growth was 3.1%. But the sustainability of this growth is now being questioned with signs of strain and fatigue in consumer spending\u00a0\u2014 the main driver of our economy.

As the 2020 election cycle kicks off, Trump is feeling the pressure to ensure the U.S. economy remains strong. In fact, a strong economy will be the cornerstone of his campaign message. But America\u2019s trade dispute with China continues to act as a weight on economic growth. Moreover, America\u2019s agricultural and manufacturing industries remain key targets of China\u2019s tariffs on U.S. goods. For Trump, the economic pain placed on farmers and manufacturers is centered across America\u2019s Heartland and Rust Belt\u00a0\u2014 battleground states he\u2019ll need to win for any chance of reelection.

Ultimately, Trump and Xi may find their true common ground is not within the text of any final trade agreement, but in an ever-increasing need to find a resolution to their dispute. For Xi, that need is to stave off further economic collapse. For Trump, it\u2019s to win a presidential election.

Bettendorf native Luke Toporowski went undrafted in Saturday\u2019s NHL Entry Draft in his first year of eligibility.

Toporowski, 18, was the 100th ranked North American skater in the final NHL Central Scouting rankings but was not one of the 217 players selected at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada.

Toporowski was selected to the U.S. Under-18 men\u2019s select national team and made the roster for the USA Hockey All-American Prospects Game last fall.

He scored 21 goals and added 28 assists in 67 regular season games in his second year with the Western Hockey League\u2019s Spokane Chiefs.

Toporowski remains draft eligible until he turns 20 and will return to Spokane for his third season with the Chiefs this fall.

Every year Consumer Reports gets tens of thousands of responses from members about problems they\u2019ve had with their kitchen appliances.

In recent surveys, the organization collected data on more than 381,000\u00a0 appliances purchased between 2008-2018.

Here are the most commonly reported problem areas; what breaks, a pro's perspective, and what consumers can do.

REFRIGERATORS, biggest complaints

17 percent, No water (or ice) coming out of dispenser

13 percent, Icemaker won\u2019t make ice

7 percent, Buildup of ice in the fridge

6 percent, Water leaking

5 percent, Refrigerator not cooling

5 percent, Broken or faulty control panel or circuit board

4 percent, Not keeping food cold

3 percent, Blocked drain or outlet

3 percent, Broken or faulty compressor

A pro\u2019s perspective

\"Icemaker failures have always been a problem ... (and) we used to be able to repair them,\" said Dean Landers, president of Landers Appliance, a repair service in the Baltimore area. But, \"now everything is molded, flimsy, and cast, making it necessary to replace the entire unit.\"

What Breaks

\u2022 Icemaker: This appliance-within-an-appliance draws water into uniform ice molds. Once cubes form, the molds are heated or twisted to free the ice from the molds, and a sweep arm ejects them into a container to be dispensed on demand.

\u2022 Evaporator fan motor: Moves air over evaporator coils, allowing refrigerant to absorb heat.

\u2022 Thermostat: Regulates temperature in fresh-food and freezer compartments.

A bad break

\"Compressors are the heart of a refrigeration system,\" Landers said. \"Replacing one means removing the refrigerant following strict federal guidelines, using a blow torch to extract the failed unit, soldering in the new one, and recharging the system. \"It is extremely costly to perform this repair.\"

RANGES, biggest complaints

6 percent, Oven not heating up effectively

6 percent, Burners (gas) or cooktop elements (electric) not igniting or heating up

5 percent, Ignition breaking or not work\u00ading properly (gas models)

2 percent, Broken knobs

2 percent, Broken control panel button(s)

\u00a0What breaks

\u2022 Ignition system: In gas ranges, this series of components generates a spark to light the gas.

\u2022 Oven bake element: Produces heat for bake, roast, and broil functions in an electric oven.

\u2022 Oven temperature sensor: Regulates temperature for both gas and electric ovens.

\u00a0\u2022 Burner: Controls the evenness and shape of the flame on a gas range.

A pro\u2019s perspective

\"There\u2019s a lot consumers can do themselves to fix minor problems with their ranges,\" said Paul Berry, owner of Mr. Appliance of San Antonio. \"And it starts with cleaning.

\"Take the ignition system: If you can still hear it clicking when you turn the knob, it may just be blocked by residue from a boil-over or other debris. Burners can also get clogged with food\u2014you\u2019ll notice a weak flame. For both parts, scrub out any debris using dish soap and warm water.\u201d

DISHWASHERS, biggest complaints

11 percent, Not cleaning properly

9 percent, Not drying properly

7 percent, Not draining properly

7 percent, Control panel breaking or not working properly

6 percent, Water leaking

5 percent, Dish rack(s) breaking

\u00a0What Breaks

Inlet valve: Controls the flow of water into the dishwasher.

Wash arm: Sends rippling streams of water into dish racks for washing and rinsing cycles.

Drain pump: Removes dirty wash and rinse water from the dishwasher, pumping it into the drain.

Circulation pump: Forces water out of spray arms and onto dirty dishes.

A pro\u2019s perspective

You’re not going to notice most dishwasher problems right away, according to Chris Zeisler, technical service supervisor at RepairClinic.com, an online clearinghouse for appliance parts and do-it-yourself videos. \"[Your dishwasher] will slowly not wash well until it gets to the point where you’re fed up and wondering what’s going on,\" he said.

A bad break

The impeller is the part of the pump that generates the water pressure necessary to make the spray arms spin. It can get damaged if a seed, pit, or piece of glass gets into the pump.

\u201cYou would want to address that as soon as possible,\u201d Zeisler said. That\u2019s because it can lead to water leaking into the motor and out onto your floor. How will you know your impeller is damaged? You\u2019ll hear a loud growling.\"

MICROWAVES, over-the-range, biggest complaints

5 percent, Buttons on control panel breaking or not working properly

4 percent, Excessive noise

4 percent, Failing to heat food adequately

4 percent, Door not locking or closing properly

2 percent, Turntable not turning

2 percent, Exhaust fan not venting properly

\u00a0What breaks

\u2022 Door latches: Redundant latches make it impossible for the microwave to run when the door is open or ajar.

\u2022 Turntable tray: Rotates food for even heating.

\u2022 Exhaust fan: Draws cooking fumes through the filters.

\u2022 Control panel: Operates heating functions.

\u2022 Magnetron: Creates the microwaves.

\u2022 Grease filter: Though it doesn\u2019t technically break, this part gets gunked with grease, preventing it from drawing cooking fumes out of your kitchen.

A pro\u2019s perspective

\"Anything wrong with the microwave door is potentially a safety concern, because it can release potentially harmful microwaves,\" Zeisler said.

MUSCATINE \u2014 Ben Peters had an enjoyable day on Saturday playing the golf course on which he grew up.

Peters returned to his home haunt of Geneva Country Club for this weekend's Geneva Amateur and left the opening round with a share of the lead as he looks to defend his 2018 crown. Peters and Geneva member Tom Norton\u00a0\u2014 who won last year's Seniors title at the course\u00a0\u2014 each shot 1-under 70 on the tricky layout.

They lead Kyle Yerington (71), Jamie Hallstrom (72) and Quad-City Amateur champ Bryan Lemkau (74) in the championship flight.

\u201cThere aren't many shots on that course that are intimidating to me,\u201d said Peters, who was coming off a tie for second in last month's Quad City Amateur, another QC Amateur Tour event. \u201cI've hit it everywhere on that course, so I know the subtle nuances to that place.\u201d

After eight pars on the front nine, Peters said he suffered two three-putts (one from the fringe) on the back side that offset birdies on 14 and 17.

\u201cI just didn't hit it out of play,\u201d said Peters. \u201cI chipped in on the third hole for birdie and that was really the most special thing that happened in the round.\u201d

There is something brewing that could make it a really special weekend for the Peters family. Ben's dad, John, shot a 73 and leads Kirk Trede by a stroke in the Senior division.

Even with three starters gone from last year's fourth-place finish at the Class 4A state tournament, the North Scott boys' basketball team does not plan to relinquish its spot atop the Mississippi Athletic Conference this upcoming season.\u00a0

\"We're still going to have a great team,\" senior-to-be and Northern Iowa recruit Ty Anderson said.

The Lancers flashed that potential Friday and Saturday at the 16th annual Justin Sharp Shootout.

Powered by Anderson and fellow senior-to-be Sam Kilburg, North Scott finished second in the 28-team tournament with a 4-1 record.

After beating Rockridge in the quarterfinals and league rival Davenport Assumption the semifinals, North Scott fell to Peoria Notre Dame in the championship game Saturday evening, 51-41. The Lancers were looking for their second straight Sharp Shootout crown.

\"We've got the pieces,\" Kilburg said. \"We've got to work on the toughness portion, finishing plays and moving without the ball. That's definitely fixable.\"

Cortaviaus Seales, Reece Sommers and Carson Rollinger graduated from last year's 23-3 squad, which shared the MAC title with Bettendorf.

Anderson and Kilburg will shoulder the brunt of the scoring. They combined for 39 points in the 61-51 win over Assumption and teamed for 26 of the 41 points in the finale.

\"I think a lot of the pressure falls on us,\" Kilburg said. \"We're the leaders. We've been here, and we need to be the role models for everybody else. We need to keep that energy and keep everybody a cohesive unit.\"

Six-foot-4 Landon Eiland and 6-6 Trent Allard, who saw sporadic minutes last season, are expected to move into prominent roles. Both provide athleticism and length.

The other spots will be filled by juniors and seniors who seldom played in 2018-19.

\"What I've learned so far is we're going to battle and we're not going to give up,\" Anderson said. \"Those (role) guys are very important. They've improved tremendously throughout this offseason.

\"We've got to get them ready just like we did when we were sophomores and juniors so we can have a great season.\"

North Scott coach Shamus Budde wasn't at Rock Island for the final two games of the tournament. He was attending assistant coach Dan Marceau's wedding.

From what Assumption coach Matt Fitzpatrick has witnessed this summer, North Scott remains the team to be beat in the area.

\"They're the gold standard of this area right now,\" he said. \"They're tough, they make open shots and play the right way. They just compete.

\"They're the team everybody is going after.\"

Knights show well at Sharp

After beating Rock Falls and Metamora on Friday, Assumption knocked off a talented Rock Island team in Saturday's quarterfinals, 58-55.

Senior-to-be Sean Peeters had 23 first-half points for the Knights, who also graduated three starters from last year's substate final team in Dylan Peeters, Anthony Valainis and Ray Kotula.

\"It has been a great month for us,\" Fitzpatrick said. \"This group, they're reliable. They've been there every day, work really hard, and I like what I've seen so far.

\"If we can surround Sean with some guys that can consistently make open shots, we have a chance to have a good team next year.\"

Sean Peeters had surgery on his knee about a month after the season. Fitzpatrick said he's been spectacular since he's returned.

\"It is very apparent he played literally on one leg last year,\" Fitzpatrick said. \"The bounce is incredible, just how athletic he is right now, how good he feels. He's playing at a really high level right now.\"

Guard Dayne Hodge has transferred from Alleman to Assumption. He'll boost the Knights' backcourt along with senior Grayson Heiser and junior Logan Ehrecke.

\"These guys are doing everything we're asking them to do right now,\" Fitzpatrick said. \"We just need to get a little more consistent hitting open shots against good teams when we're a little bit tired.

\"We can fix that. We just need to be a little more intentional, shooting game shots in our workouts.\"

SPRINGFIELD -- The 40,000 Illinois state employees represented by AFSCME have a new contract after members, by an \u201coverwhelming majority,\u201d ratified a new four-year contract that will increase workers\u2019 pay by nearly 12 percent.

Voting on the contract proposal was conducted between June 12 and Friday at more than 400 worksite meetings statewide.

The union hasn\u2019t had a contract with the state since June 30, 2015. The agreement will be in effect until June 30, 2023.

Officials with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees did not reveal exact vote totals but said it was approved by an \u201coverwhelming majority.\u201d

\u201cThe big margin reflects how ready state workers are for the return of sanity and responsible governance in the wake of (former Gov.) Bruce Rauner\u2019s relentless attacks,\u201d AFSCME Council 31 Executive Director Roberta Lynch said in a statement issued Saturday morning. \u201cPublic service workers in state government clearly believe this contract is fair for all.\u201d

The deal does not provide an immediate pay raise. Instead, union members will get a stipend of $625 for each of the last four years they were a state employee.

The first general raise of 1.5 percent will go into effect Jan. 1, 2020. Another 2.1 percent will go into effect July 1, 2020. On July 1, 2021 another 3.95 percent raise will take effect. A final increase of 3.95 percent happens July 1, 2022.

Compounded, the raises amount to 11.98 percent over the life of the contract. State workers have received no general raises since July 2014.

Employee health insurance premiums and out-of-pocket costs will increase. Although specific totals will vary depending on the employee\u2019s health plan and salary, premiums will go up each January by a composite $13 per month for individuals and $18 per month for families. It is the first increase in premiums or out of pocket health costs in four years.

The NBA draft came and went Thursday night without one of the most decorated players in Wisconsin history hearing his name called.

Ethan Happ admitted he was a little surprised by that.

The good news is that the former Rockridge High School star still will get a shot at making it in the NBA. He has signed to play for the Chicago Bulls in the NBA summer league in hopes of making an impression on the Bulls or some other team.

\"I\u2019m just taking it in stride,\" Happ said. \"It\u2019s a longer path to the NBA, but I still believe that\u2019s my end destination. We\u2019ll just keeping working and we\u2019ll get there.\"

Happ isn\u2019t the only player who will be trying to work his way into the league after being bypassed in the draft.

Iowa forward Tyler Cook signed a partially guaranteed contract with the Denver Nuggets, although he will not play in the summer league. He is still recovering from a sprained ankle suffered during a June 6 workout with Detroit.

Two undrafted Iowa State players also will play in the summer league. Canadian-born Lindell Wigginton will compete for the NBA champion Toronto Raptors, and Nick Weiler-Babb will join the Miami Heat.

Happ said he was fairly optimistic going into Thursday\u2019s draft following a college career in which he finished as Wisconsin\u2019s career leader in rebounding and blocked shots. He also was No. 2 in steals and No. 3 in both scoring and assists, becoming the first Big Ten player in 35 years to collect 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds in his career.

That was enough to earn him the Kareem Abdul Jabbar award as the top center in the country.

The 6-foot-10, 237-pounder worked out in Chicago in preparation for the draft over the past two months and went through individual workouts with eight different teams.

\"I was told there was about six teams I was in the mix for picks,\" he said.

He didn\u2019t even watch the draft, though, opting to hang out with friends back home in Milan. The television in the next room was tuned to the draft just in case.

\"But then it got to pick No. 52 or something like that and my agent called and said that it\u2019s probably not happening,\" Happ said.

He actually had a free agent offer from one team but declined it, hoping to show enough in the summer league to get an even better opportunity.

\"There\u2019s already interest with teams so hopefully I can play well enough in those games and kind of jump on the ship,\" he said.

The Bulls are scheduled to open play in Vegas on July 5 against the Los Angeles Lakers. They also have games scheduled against the Cleveland Cavaliers on July 7, the New Orleans Pelicans on July 8 and the Charlotte Hornets on July 10. All those games will be televised by either ESPN or the NBA Network.

Happ said he isn\u2019t really sure what he will do if things don\u2019t work out with an NBA club. The NBA G League is one option or he could choose to play professionally overseas.

\"I won\u2019t know that until after summer league to see what kind of deals come up,\" he said. \"Right now it\u2019s just go kill it.\"

\u201cToy Story 4,\u201d which may be the finale in beloved franchise that began in 1995, is the perfect outing for pals of all ages, regardless of how long they\u2019ve known each other. Although little ones will delight in the antics of the bright, charming characters, grownups will embrace themes about transitions, sacrifice and the meaning of friendship.

It\u2019s emotional, but it doesn\u2019t pack the gut punch that the third installment did.

In this one, the toys still belong to Bonnie, who has grown up enough to enter kindergarten.

Woody (Tom Hanks) no longer is the favorite toy. Before Bonnie, Woody always was by Andy\u2019s side. But sometimes Bonnie doesn\u2019t even take him out to play.

Still, Woody always has Bonnie\u2019s best interest at heart. When she must go off to kindergarten, he hides in her backpack to help her along.

In the classroom, Bonnie creates a new \u201ctoy\u201d out of a spork. \u201cForky\u201d (the voice of Tony Hale) comes home with Woody, who introduces him to the other toys and tries to convince him that Forky isn\u2019t trash \u2013 he\u2019s a toy. Because Forky is so precious to Bonnie, Woody tries to ensure Forky stays out of trash receptacles, which Forky longs for, and next to the little girl.

\""Toy

A scene from \"Toy Story 4.\"

When the family takes a vacation in a recreational vehicle, Bonnie takes the toys along. At one point, Forky and Woody end up walking for hours when they become lost. That\u2019s when Woody thinks he sees Bo Peep (Annie Potts), the girl he has missed for so many years, in an antiques store.

Woody and Forky aren\u2019t alone. Reigning over the store is Gabby Gabby (Christina Hendricks,) whose ventriloquist henchmen have a kind of Jack-Nicholson-in-\u201cThe-Shining\u201d vibe. Gabby Gabby has an agenda that involves both Forky and Woody.

In the meantime, other toys join in with the old gang. Particularly appealing are Ducky and Bunny (Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele) and a motorcycle stunt rider Evel Knievel-type action figure named Duke Caboom (Keanu Reeves).

There is no short before the movie this time around. But you want some extras, stick around through the credits.

As always, Easter eggs will appeal to fans with sharp ears and an eye for detail. \"Second Chance Antiques, Est. 1986,\u201d for example, is a nod to Pixar Animation Studios, which became its own corporation in 1986. The record on the record player in the shop lists \"Coco\" as the performer. You'll hear the familiar strains from \"The Shining\" in a hilariously creepy antiques-store scene. Other references include \"Up\" and \"Monsters Inc.\"

Once again, the music of Randy Newman plays a welcome role. The animation is glorious, from the first scenes with the most realistic rain you\u2019ve ever seen to a romantic moment set against the background of a Ferris Wheel.

The late Don Rickles, through recordings he already made for various purposes, still provides the voice for Mr. Potato Head.

Kids will love these endearing characters (be prepared to obtain sporks and pipe cleaners for your little ones, incidentally) whose personalities develop while they make some tough decisions. Older viewers will reminisce not only about the beloved series itself but also their own lives.

What a wonderful movie. Thanks, Pixar, for these timeless films. And thanks, Emily, for a friendship that will reach into infinity ... and beyond.

One of Iowa\u2019s biggest recruiting weekends of the year started with the Hawkeyes landing a major commitment.

Connor Colby, a 6-foot-5, 270-pound offensive lineman from Cedar Rapids Kennedy, informed Iowa coaches Friday night that he would be part of the Hawkeyes\u2019 2021 recruiting class.

Colby selected Iowa after spending the past few weeks visiting a number of programs.

\"Nothing has compared to what I saw and the people I met when I was at Iowa,\" said Colby, who selected the Hawkeyes over offers from Iowa State, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio State and Virginia Tech.

\"I kept coming back to that as I went around to different places. I felt comfortable there from the start and it just felt right. I grew up a Hawkeye fan, so this is something I\u2019ve always dreamed about, and there really wasn\u2019t a need to look any further.\"

Ranked by both Rivals and 247Sports as a four-star prospect on a five-star scale, Colby is ranked by Rivals as the second-best prospect in Iowa in the Class of 2021.

He is the second incoming high school junior offensive lineman to announce intentions to sign with Iowa in December 2020, the earliest opportunity he will have to sign a binding letter of intent.

Gennings Dunker, a 6-4, 265-pound offensive lineman from Lena-Winslow in northwest Illinois, announced his commitment after attending a camp at Iowa earlier this month.

Colby\u2019s commitment came on the first day of a major recruiting weekend for Iowa, although he wasn\u2019t among the players taking part in the event which started Friday.

A group of nearly two dozen recruits were scheduled to begin official visits to Iowa on Friday, including 10 of the 14 players who have verbally committed to be part of the Hawkeyes\u2019 2020 recruiting class.

The group includes 12 players who are uncommitted at this point.

DES MOINES \u2014 The heart has left the Heartland for some Iowans.

Preliminary 2018 demographic data compiled by the state Department of Public Health indicates that the number of divorces are on the uptick and while marriages \u2014 be they opposite- or same-gender affairs \u2014 are dropping to overall levels not seen since years of war and depression.

About three times as many Iowa couples exchanged wedding vows last year than split up, the Public Health department statewide demographic profile shows. Cupid struck 18,085 times last year \u2014 the lowest number since 1944 (17,121) and first time since 1962 that the yearly total has dipped below 19,000.

And after posting the lowest marriage dissolutions since 1933, with 3,785 in 2015, the number of Iowa couples getting divorced has climbed each year since \u2014 to 6,586 last year.

\u201cMarriage is hard,\u201d said Susan Stewart, a sociologist and Iowa State University professor whose area of expertise is family demography. \u201cWe still have a very high divorce rate in the U.S. and there\u2019s no sign that that\u2019s going anywhere.\u201d

Experts say the economy may be playing a hand in both trend lines \u2014 with wedding plans being something millennials and marriage-aged young people are putting off until they get financially established, while an improving economy is making the expensive proposition of severing marriage ties more affordable.

Also, they say \u201cgray divorce\u201d is a growing phenomenon among adults 50 years of age or older as social mores are shifting more secular and away from organized religion.

\u201cYoung people are delaying getting married, so the age of first marriage has increased and it\u2019s never been higher \u2014 like ever,\u201d said Stewart, who noted the median age at marriage now tops 29 for men and 27 for women.

Stewart noted that marriage is expensive, and \u201cthese days young people like to get all their ducks in a row \u2014 finish college, get their first job, and so they want to wait until they feel like they\u2019re ready \u2014 that they\u2019ve met their personal goals and have the resources,\u201d she added.

\u201cMarriage is like a capstone, so you do everything else and then you get married because marriage means like the white-picket fence and being able to buy a house and then having kids and things like that.\u201d

Tera Jordan, an ISU associate professor of human development and family studies who has spent 20 years studying intimate relationships, said the pattern of marriage and divorce among younger or older couples highlights the rise of individualism in American culture and society being more supportive of other options for forming families.

\u201cWe still see a strong regard for marriage,\u201d Jordan noted. \u201cI would say it\u2019s definitely thriving and it\u2019s changing at the same time. Lifetime prevalence of marriage is still up around 95, 96 percent, so by the time most people leave this world they will have experienced marriage even for a short period of time.

\u201cIt\u2019s still very highly valued in society, but the ways in which people approach it \u2014 the timing of it, when you marry, how long you stay married \u2014 all of that is changing, in part, to all of the changes in our society,\u201d she said. \u201cWe need to probably consider that there are alternative ways of having committed relationships and forming families and that could be showing up in the dip in the rate for 2018.\u201d

About 75 percent of all people who get married lived together first, Stewart said, \u201cso it\u2019s the norm and then if marriage is thought of as being out of reach for people, then they\u2019ll just stay in their co-habiting relationship. They\u2019ll even have children in co-habitation.\u201d

Preliminary Department of Public Health 2018 population and other statistical characteristics indicate that 13,125 of the babies born in Iowa were out-of-wedlock births, which is more than a third. The number of yearly live births in Iowa \u2014 down to 37,690 in 2018, the lowest in five years \u2014 is in line with a national decline.

In other data, total deaths in 2018 were reported at 30,316 \u2014 only the second year the number topped 30,000 dating back to 1915. A total of 30,527 Iowans died in 2017.

Also, according to state demographic data, Iowa\u2019s overall population of 3,156,145 in 2018 was up for the 17th straight year. But the state has an aging population, Stewart said, \u201cso if we\u2019re talking about raw numbers, fewer people of those marriageable ages means there\u2019s going to be fewer marriages.\u201d

This country has \u201ca very strong two-child norm,\u201d she said. \u201cOur fertility rate has always hovered around that, and I don\u2019t think that\u2019s going to drop that much.\u201d

Gary Krob, who tracks census and other numbers as the State Data Center coordinator in the State Library of Iowa, said Iowa\u2019s population grew in part because births exceeded the 30,316 Iowans who died last year. In addition, the state annually attracts a sizable number of international migrants, which offsets those Iowans who chose to leave the state for other living environs.

\u201cGenerally our state has historically seen negative domestic migration, which means we tend to have more people move out of Iowa to other states than coming from other states into Iowa. But we also generally have very positive international migration. That usually offsets the domestic out-migration,\u201d Krob said.

\u201cThat\u2019s been one of the major contributors for sure.\u201d

Iowa\u2019s population growth has been steady at about 3.6 percent since the 2010 census, which has outpaced some of our Midwestern neighbors, Krob noted, but that positive development still hasn\u2019t moved Iowa from the bottom of the U.S. growth chart since 1900.

\u201cHistorically, we are the slowest-growing state in the nation since about the 1900s,\u201d Krob said. Over the 118 years ending with 2018, he said Iowa\u2019s growth rate has been 41.4 percent.

\u201cThat is the slowest in the nation,\u201d he said. \u201cThe next lowest is Nebraska, and they grew at 80.9 percent during that same time period \u2014 almost double our rate.\u201d

Iowa added a new demographic column to its yearly data charts when the Supreme Court ruled, in 2009, that it was legal for same-gender couples to marry \u2014 a change that saw the number of same-sex marriages in Iowa peak at 3,397 but then taper off significantly since then, to 336 specified in 2018.

Stewart noted that the rate of divorce is about the same for couples regardless of whether they are of the same sex or opposite sex.
