Despite the challenges, an opportunity to run her hometown hockey team was too good for Gwen Tombergs to pass up.

Tombergs was introduced Thursday as the president of Quad-City Storm, the new hockey franchise that will debut in the Southern Professional Hockey League in October.

\"That's the biggest feather in my hat,\" the Eldridge native said. \"I can't even tell you how proud I am that I had the skill set that fit, but to say I can make a difference in my own hometown with a product that's going to be embraced and has a lot of support already, it's pretty huge in my book.\"

Tombergs is the first female president in the 23-year history of Quad-City hockey as well as in the 14-year history of the SPHL.

\"She's involved in the community. She's qualified to be president and it has nothing to do with whether she's male or female. She's the best candidate for the job, period,\" SPHL commissioner Jim Combs said. \"It's fantastic, I think more people should do it. We've had female officials, we had a female goalie playing for us, looking forward to the day where it's not a thing.\"

Tombergs has been involved with sports throughout her career. She worked as the director of ticket sales development with the New York Mets and also had roles with the Quad-City Thunder back in the CBA days, as well as with the Richmond Renegades, a former ECHL team.

Tombergs most recently worked at Quad-Cities Chamber of Commerce, serving as the director of resource and member development. She became aware of the opportunity with the Storm when TaxSlayer Center executive director Scott Mullen inquired about posting the job opening on the commerce website.

It piqued Tombergs' interest and she was hired last week.

\"I met the owners and they told me their commitment to the community and that's number one,\" Tombergs said. \"I want this community to be proud of their team and know that it's their team, and so when we started talking about that I thought maybe this is a good fit, and I always like a good challenge.\"

Her experience and her long background with the community could provide opportunities to quickly make inroads with corporate sponsors. The Storm already have a base established by the former Quad-City Mallards, but the novelty of the franchise change could provide some challenges.

The franchise thinks Tombergs is well suited for those hurdles.

\"I feel on the business side of things she's got one of the best personalities and attitudes to take on a team that will support the community,\" team co-owner Ryan Mosley said. \"I feel with her community engagements and prior history, I couldn't find a better candidate that I feel would be the one giving back to the community.\"

Tombergs knows what challenges face the Storm with less than four months until the team's home opener Oct. 20. She also has plenty of ideas about how to make sure the Storm succeed where teams before them failed. She plans to take cues from what the Quad-Cities River Bandits and Quad-City Steamwheelers have done, particularly community involvement and a strong focus on marketing and in-game entertainment.

\"I was trained to do big and I have the 'wow factor' mentality and that's what I want to bring back,\" Tombergs said. \"What they've done over there (with the Bandits and Steamwheelers) shows me what I can do here.\"

That attitude has already made an impact on those around her.\u00a0

\"Gwen is just so professional, expects the best out of you and that's what I expect out of my players,\" Storm head coach Dave Pszenyczny said. \"It's what I expected out of myself when I played. I held myself to a higher level as far as I wanted to get better every day and if I didn't that day was a failure to me. Having her is going to be awesome because it's going to be a nice reminder.\"

There's still a lot of work to be done.

Tombergs said she will hire a marketing director, as well as fill out the ticket sales staff. The Storm also have to establish relationships with sponsors and continue to work on ticket sales.

But Tombergs is embracing the challenge.

\"When you've been in sports before, you know how many hours you work and what it's going to take and this is a startup,\" Tombergs said. \"It's super fun because it's a startup but you know you're going to be working a lot because you're doing everything from logos, to business cards to hiring people.

\"We do have a lot of work to do but the exciting thing is we already know people want hockey here.\"

Scott County is one of nine in Iowa declared disaster areas Thursday by Gov. Kim Reynolds, primarily because of damage caused by flash flooding in Davenport during and after Wednesday's downpour.

The designation makes qualifying households eligible for up to $5,000 in grants to pay for home or car repairs, replace clothing or food or for temporary housing because of flooding, according to a news release.

The amounts of rainfall that fell late Wednesday afternoon varied widely by location, with as much as 5.41 inches reported by a spotter in northwest Davenport to 2 to 4 inches on the Illinois side, Dave Cousins, meteorologist with the National Weather Service, Davenport, said.

\"The heavy rain really sat over that part,\" he said of northwest Davenport.

A driver in a Nissan Xterra pushes through floodwaters on East 3rd Street turning onto East River Drive in Davenport on Wednesday.

As a result, numerous street intersections filled with water, stalling cars, and managers of at least three apartment complexes called the American Red Cross of the Quad-Cities about providing shelter for tenants displaced by stormwater running through their units, Trish Burnett, interim executive director of the Red Cross, said.

\"062118-flooding-001a.jpg\"

Woodland Apartment residents in Davenport lay out rugs to dry after heavy rainfall flooded the first floor of the building Wednesday night. The American Red Cross opened a shelter in Davenport Wednesday night to help victims of flooding. The Red Cross shelter is located at Lincoln Fundamental Elementary in Davenport. The building is at 318 East 7th St.

The agency opened an emergency shelter at Lincoln Fundamental Elementary School, 318 E. 7th St., Davenport, but no one checked in.

The Red Cross did not receive calls for help from any other of the Quad-Cities, Burnett said.

Homeowners reporting flooding were mostly in Davenport with a few in Bettendorf, Brian Payne, emergency planner with the Scott County Emergency Management Agency, said.

He had no monetary estimate of damage.

Because of all the rain, here and elsewhere, Cousins of the weather service warned of minor flooding \u2014 immediate or within the next week \u2014 on the Mississippi, Rock and Wapsipinicon rivers.

Here is a closer look at storm-related events:

\u2022 Backyard flooding: Michelle Burton grabbed her smartphone and hit the video button.

The amount of water pouring through her backyard during and after Wednesday's torrential downpour was above her knees, and she \"just could not believe it,\" she said.

And then, almost as fast as it had come, it was gone.

Burton lives at 2848 Oak St., an area of Davenport she describes as near the Wells Fargo bank at Hickory Grove Road and West Central Park Avenue.

Her neighbors' yards have storm sewer drains, but hers does not. \"It freaked me out,\" she said of the river pouring through her yard.

Water also ran into her house, but by moving quickly, Burton was able to get it mopped up with blankets and towels before it caused any damage, she said.

\u2022 Rainfall totals: The 24-hour total between 7 a.m. Wednesday and 7 a.m. Thursday was 5.53 inches at the Quad-City International Airport, Moline, and 6.26 inches at the weather service in Davenport, Cousins said.

\"062118-flooding-018a.jpg\"

Children play on Adams Elementary School's playground despite the area having flooded Wednesday night.

Normal precipitation through June 21 is 3.18 inches, he said.

\"It's been a very wet week,\" he said.

\u2022 Flooding: Because of heavy rains in Wisconsin and Minnesota, the Mississippi River is expected to begin slowly rising, reaching flood stage of 15 feet Monday and cresting at 16.3 feet Thursday, June 28, Cousins said.

\"But that could change,\" he added.

The city of Rock Island began preparing by placing several water pump discharge hoses across the Rock Island portion of the bike path, installing pumps and closing gatewells, according to a news release from the city's public works department.

The Mississippi crested May 12 at 17.5 feet, falling below flood stage on May 20, Cousins said.

The Rock River was at its 12-foot flood stage on Thursday because of rain in Wisconsin and the Rockford, Illinois, area. It is expected to crest at 13.8 feet on Monday and Tuesday and then begin to fall.

The Wapsi also was flooding Thursday, standing at 12 feet, which is about one foot above flood stage. The 12-foot mark is expected to hold about steady for the next week, Cousins said.

Melissa Chavez-Huston, of Milan, had a day of summer-vacation fun mapped out for her two children and a neighbor boy on Monday. They loved to canoe, and to watch the Backwater Gamblers water-skiing troupe, so she planned to put oars in the water to do both.

As their Rock River adventure reached early evening, though, it turned into a mother's most horrific nightmare.

In Milan, their canoe was swept into the Steel Dam's current. Maci Jade Chavez, who would have turned 6 on July 23, did not make it out.

Maci's body has not been recovered, although search efforts were conducted Monday night, and again every day since then. Chavez-Huston's family, friends and co-workers from Rock Island's Washington Junior High School, where she is a special-education teacher, planned to conduct a memorial service at the Steel Dam at 5 p.m. Thursday.

\"We honored my diva by beautifying the river,\" said Chavez-Huston, adding that those attending planned to bring edible glitter, bath bombs and balloons, all favorites of the graduated kindergartener.

Chavez-Huston relived all of the agony of the boating accident Wednesday when she talked about what happened.

She noted that everyone in the group of four followed water safety guidelines. \"Everyone had life jackets on,\" she said. \"Many people canoe and boat in the spot where we were, and we had canoed there before.\"

They planned to canoe for a bit, then head back to watch the Backwater Gamblers' practice session.

About that time is when everything went wrong.

The group was not near the Milan dam, and didn't intend to be anywhere near it. That didn\u2019t matter.

\"We entered at the dock at Backwater Gamblers (near 44th Street in Rock Island), and it looks like a safe spot to put the boat in,\" Chavez-Huston said. \"It looks perfectly calm, but before you know it, you are in something very dangerous. I say this because I sure don't want this to happen to anyone else's baby.\"

Chavez-Houston said they were unaware how close to that danger they were.

\"Once we got to the middle section of the water, far from the dam, a bad current caught us,\" she continued. \"Ian (her son) and I paddled as hard as we could, while I kept pretending it was no big deal, to not scare the kids.\"

The group found a buoy to grasp, but that offered only a brief respite. It became apparent that the canoe was going to go over the dam and into the rocky rapids.

\"I told the kids to tighten their life jackets and hold on. If we flipped, they were to come up and grab for something to hold onto and get to land if possible,\" Chavez-Huston said.

They went over the dam at about 6:15 p.m.

\"The dam did not just knock us over and spit us out like I was expecting,\" she said. \"We got caught in a suction current.\u201d

They stabilized by grabbing onto a large log, got knocked off balance, then kept repeating that cycle for about 10 minutes.

Chavez-Huston said she tried to calm the children, talking about how a rescue would be coming soon.

Then a log knocked the two boys away -- to safety, as it turns out, since it knocked them into calmer waters. Thinking the worst had happened to them, Chavez-Huston focused her attention on her girl.

\"We had been under for a long time and she wasn't breathing,\" Chavez-Huston said of Maci, \"so I threw her on top of the log and began mouth-to-mouth ... and she came back. She yelled, 'Why haven't they saved us yet?' and 'I'm too young to die!'

\"This happened two more times like that, and each time there was no crying or whining from my tiny warrior.\"

A lifeboat arrived, Chavez-Huston said. She said she got on safely, but the raft capsized. \"The rescuers had to be rescued; I untied my baby from me to save her, and instead, I lost her forever.

\"At that point, I went under the water and decided I was going to stay with my babies, but as I began to black out, I decided the river wasn't going to win. Thank goodness I did because my boys were brave -- Chaz swam to safety, and Ian floated until he could touch and walk to safety.\"

The terror stretched out for a two-hour period, Chavez-Huston said.

\"I am so sad for my girl; I am physically bruised from head to toe; but we will get through this and keep adventuring,\" she said. \"I hope they find my baby soon.\"

As for the glitter and bathbombs, Chavez-Huston said they were the perfect \"missing you\" tribute for Maci.

\"She would like that,\" she said. \"She's fancy like that.\"

The last time the Quad-City unemployment rate was equal to or lower than its current rate was in 2000, according to Tom Austin with the Illinois Department of Employment Security.\u00a0

Along with all of Illinois' metropolitan areas, the Quad-Cities saw over-the-year unemployment rates drop last month. The unemployment rate is 3.5 percent, compared to 4 percent this time last year, according to the IDES report released Thursday. It was 3.4 percent in 2000.

\"So that's quite some time since we've seen the rate at this level,\" he said. \"It's been a positive. Looking back at 2017 and continuing into 2018, we've seen the unemployment rate declining. And we're starting to see additional jobs.\"\u00a0

More residents have been able to find new jobs without moving out of the Quad-Cities, according to Austin. And the Quad-City metro area added more than 2,700 jobs compared to last May.\u00a0

\"When we're looking at the labor force\u00a0\u2014 the number of people employed and unemployed\u00a0\u2014 we're seeing growth over the year. There are more people in the labor force due to more people being employed,\" Austin said. \"So if people are returning to the labor force, they're finding employment and not looking elsewhere to find employment. They haven't left the area; they aren't retiring.\"

He said growth in the labor force likely means several local employers are succeeding in growing and attracting new workers.\u00a0

The Quad-Cities had the largest job growth in the professional-business services industry, which added 1,600 jobs, and in manufacturing, which added 700 more jobs than last May.\u00a0

\"We're seeing a return with manufacturing jobs, and that often has a strong tie to professional-business services,\" he said. \"A large component of that is staffing management companies and employment companies that often assist other industries \u2014 especially manufacturing. So as manufacturing increases, so does professional-business services.\"\u00a0

The number of jobs has fallen in the retail trade industry, with 800 fewer retail jobs than last year, according to the report.

\"Even though some industries have declined, there's growth in others,\" Austin said. \"That's starting to show more as we see that return in the manufacturing sector.\"\u00a0

The Quad-Cities' 3.5 percent unemployment rate was average for the state of Illinois. The highest rate was 5.1 percent in Danville, and the lowest was 3.3 percent in both the Bloomington and Chicago-Naperville metro areas.\u00a0

May jobless rates for the Quad-City region were:\u00a0

The Davenport man accused of seriously injuring Buffalo Police Chief Terry \u201cTJ\u201d Behning when he rammed his squad car with a stolen garbage truck in September will go to trial Monday.

Logan J. Shoemaker is charged with attempted murder, serious injury by vehicle, eluding or attempting to elude while participating in a felony, willful injury resulting in serious injury and first-degree robbery while armed with a dangerous weapon.

Jury selection begins Monday and the trial could last four to six days in Scott County District Court.\u00a0

On Thursday, the 21-year-old Shoemaker appeared before District Court Judge Thomas Reidel to plead guilty to eight charges stemming from incidents that prosecutors say led up to the Sept. 25 incident. Those charges are two counts of second-degree theft, three counts of second-degree criminal mischief, stalking with a dangerous weapon, assault with a dangerous weapon and fourth-degree criminal mischief.

The first six charges are each a Class D felony, punishable by up to five years in prison.

The assault charge is an aggravated misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison, while the fourth-degree criminal mischief charge is a serious misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in county jail.

He will be sentenced on those charges Aug. 9.

The incidents began around 5:30 a.m. Sept. 24, when police were dispatched to the 300 block of East 11th Street in Davenport for a hit-and-run.

Shoemaker, who was driving a red 2005 Dodge Ram pickup, got into an argument with a woman and threatened her life, police said. She began to walk away and was in front of another vehicle when he intentionally drove his truck at her, struck the vehicle and pushed it into a third vehicle. Shoemaker then fled. He had messaged and called her at all hours and made statements that made her fear for her safety. The woman repeatedly called police about his actions in the past, and he had made direct threats on multiple occasions.

At 8:43 p.m. that night, police were again called to East 11th Street for a harassment report. Shoemaker had an argument with the woman and, as things escalated, he struck the windshield of her vehicle with a pipe. He then got into the Dodge pickup and intentionally twice crashed into the front driver side of her vehicle.

At 11:38 a.m. Sept. 25, a Davenport police officer attempted to stop that vehicle, which was reported stolen Sept. 19. The officer also knew Shoemaker, the driver, was wanted. Shoemaker refused to pull over and fled at a high rate of speed, running several stop signs. The officer reported going more than 90 mph, with Shoemaker was still pulling away.

During the pursuit, Shoemaker crashed into an Allied Waste/Republic garbage truck at 90th Avenue and 145th Street, in rural Scott County.

That driver said Shoemaker ran up to his truck and yelled for help. When he opened the truck door, Shoemaker demanded the driver get out or he would shoot him.

Believing Shoemaker had a gun, the driver complied. Shoemaker got into the truck and continued to flee.

Around 11:53 a.m., Behning was in a marked squad car parked in the east lane of Scott County Road Y40 at Iowa 22 in an attempt to deploy stop sticks. As he got out of his vehicle, Shoemaker approached the intersection at a high rate of speed and drove the garbage truck into the officer's lane of traffic, intentionally crashing the truck into the squad car, police said.

Shoemaker was arrested a short time later.

Behning was stabilized on scene by fellow officers and airlifted to University Hospitals for treatment of multiple lower leg injuries. He has since been released from the hospital, but is still recovering.

Following the plea hearing Thursday, defense attorney Derek Jones asked Reidel to restrict the admission of evidence regarding the charges he pleaded guilty to. He argued prosecutors have a right to provide some context to the charges Shoemaker will be tried on, but the admittance of substantial evidence of the other charges is irrelevant and any probative value would be outweighed by the danger of unfair prejudice.

Scott County Attorney Mike Walton argued the events he will be on trial for are the culmination of the \u201cdefendant\u2019s actions for those crimes he just pleaded guilty to.\u201d

He said it is not his intention to retry all of the charges and prosecutors will review the evidence and pare it down before trial.

Reidel will revisit the issue Monday.

DEWITT \u2014 Luke Anderson was pleased with his outing in Game 1 of Central DeWitt\u2019s WaMaC doubleheader against Center Point-Urbana.

He was more pleased with how he won the game.

With the bases loaded and the game tied at 6, Anderson got hit by the first pitch thrown to him by Cam Hasleiet that completed a wild 7-6 triumph in 10 innings Thursday night at the DeWitt athletic complex.

Ryan McAleer threw a no-hitter to complete the sweep with a 2-0 victory in the nightcap.

\u201cI just really wanted to win,\u201d Anderson said. \u201cIt was kind of anti-climatic.\u201d

It was the ending to a crazy opener.

Trailing 4-3, the Stormin\u2019 Pointers scored three runs \u2014 two of them on an Ethan Sells single \u2014 to grab their first lead of the game.

DeWitt responded.

Jacob Swanson delivered a two-out 2-run double to deep center field that tied the game at six. After scoreless seventh, eighth and ninth innings, the Sabers (17-8, 11-8 WaMaC) walked it off.

CPU\u2019s head coach got ejected in the 10th that led to back-to-back hit by pitches to load the bases and send home the winning run.

\u201cIt was a mix of things,\u201d Anderson said. \u201cHe probably just held the ball too long or gripped it too tight.\u201d

Although he\u2019d rather see his batters swing the bat, Sabers head coach Shane Sikkema will take the win.

\u201cThey take too many pitches in my book, but I\u2019m not going to change it,\u201d he said. \u201cWe get too comfortable too early in the game. We scratched and clawed.\u201d

The Sabers scored their first four runs in the second inning on a passed ball, hit by pitch, bunt single and sacrifice bunt.

CPU (10-13, 5-11) responded with a run in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings. After going hitless against Anderson the first time through the order, they connected for five hits that scored three runs the second time around.

\u201cGot a little tired at the end,\u201d Sikkema said. \u201cI was very happy with his performance.\u201d

After years of relying on his pitching staff, Sikkema has hummed a different tune this year. His offense is enjoying top marks in Class 3A in the hits category.

DeWitt already has eight games of scoring 10 or more runs, one more than last year\u2019s squad.

\u201cIt is nice to hit the gaps and hit a lot of doubles,\u201d Sikkema said.

McAleer was relied on heavily in Game 2.

The right-hander allowed three baserunners and struck out three. It is the first career no-hitter thrown by McAleer.

\u201cAt first, I didn\u2019t know what was going on, just kept pounding the strike zone,\u201d the sophomore said. \u201cFelt pretty good going in.\u201d

DeWitt\u2019s pair of runs came on an RBI single by Cam Steffens and a Stormin\u2019 Pointer error.

With a winning streak up to six games, McAleer sees this team trending in the right direction.

\u201cWe\u2019re trying to get over 20 wins and I think we can get over that pretty easily,\u201d he said. \u201cWe need to have our solid defense and keep making contact.\u201d

The wait wasn't worth it Thursday for the Quad-Cities River Bandits.

In a game that was delayed by more than one hour at the onset because of rain, Beloit rallied for a 3-2 Midwest League victory at Modern Woodmen Park in the opening game of the second half of the season.

The Snappers tied the game in the seventh and scored the deciding run in the top of the ninth inning, ending\u00a0a\u00a0six-game win streak for\u00a0the first-half champions in the Western Division by erasing the 2-0 lead Quad-Cities held after four innings.

Javon Shelby opened the inning with a single to center, but quickly advanced to third by stealing second and taking third on catcher Michael Papierski's second error in 46 games.

He then scored the deciding run when Mickey McDonald reached on an infield single just beyond the reach of Adrian Tovalin at third.

Beloit tied the game at 2-2 with an unearned run in the top of the seventh inning.

The Snappers put their leadoff batter on base for the fourth straight inning when Nick Allen reached on a fielding error by River Bandits first baseman Colton Shaver.

He advanced on a single by McDonald and a Trace Loehr fielder\u2019s choice before erasing the River Bandits\u2019 2-1 lead by scoring on a fielder\u2019s choice off the bat of Austin Beck, selected by the Athletics with the sixth overall pick in the 2017 draft.

In a game delayed by over an hour at the start because of rain, pitchers dominated before both teams loaded the bases in the fourth inning.

Only Quad-Cities capitalized on that opportunity, taking a 2-0 lead when Logan Mattix dropped a two-out single into the center.

Bryan De La Cruz opened the inning by dropping a bunt single toward third. He stole second before Bryce Conley walked Tovalin and Chandler Taylor before Mattix drove a pitch in front of center fielder Austin Beck to put the River Bandits on the board.

The runs came after Quad-Cities stranded runners on base in each of the first three innings, but River Bandits pitcher Leovanny Rodriguez ended Beloit\u2019s first true offensive threat singlehandedly in the top of the fourth inning.

Loehr and Beck opened the inning with base hits and after Logan Farrar struck out, Hunter Hargrove lined a single just beyond the reach of shortstop Miguelangel Sierra to fill the bases with Snappers.

Rodriguez then retired Jesus Lopez and Skyler Weber with his seventh and eighth strikeouts of a walk-free, four-hit, four-inning performance.

Cesar Rosado took over on the mound for Quad-Cities in the fifth and the Snappers quickly cut the River Bandits lead in half.

Against a defense shaded toward left, Shelby split the gap in right-center with an inning-opening triple. He then scored when Allen beat out an infield single to the hole behind shortstop to pull Beloit within 2-1.

Amanda Simon had just stepped into the offices of RSM US LLP at 201 Harrison St. in Davenport for her shift that began at 4 p.m. when she and just about everyone else in the six-story building felt the structure shake and saw smoke coming from below.

Simon said had parked her Toyota RAV4 in front of the building so she would not have far to walk to her vehicle if she left after dark.

\u201cI looked down and saw that my car had been hit and that the other car had hit the building,\u201d Simon said.

Just before 4 p.m., Davenport police said, a Toyota Solara, driven by Caleb Ezra Hawkins, 29, was southbound on Harrison Street when Hawkins lost control of the vehicle. The Solara clipped the left rear of Simon\u2019s RAV4 and then struck the building, shattering one or two of the glass panels.

The building at 201 N. Harrison Street is also headquarters for Lee Enterprises, the parent company of the Quad-City Times and Dispatch Argus, as well as ATEEC, the interactive learning lab of the Eastern Iowa Community College District, which is on the first floor.

Simon said that when everyone got outside the noticed Hawkins trying to throw some objects into the ATEEC trash compactor that sits in front of the building. He also was acting strangely as though he was incoherent, she added.

Officers checked the trash compactor and seized drugs and syringes that witnesses said Hawkins had been trying to hide from police.

No one was injured in the crash, and Simon\u2019s vehicle at was drivable.

Davenport Police booked Hawkins into the Scott County Jail on charges of operating while intoxicated-drugs, drug possession second offense, possession of drug paraphernalia, unlawful use of a prescription, and failing to maintain control of the vehicle.

Hawkins bond was set at $3,600 cash or surety.

Hawkins has a criminal history that includes a Class D felony conviction of second-degree theft in 2009, and two aggravated criminal misdemeanor convictions for third-degree theft in 2016.

Beardsley will extend that streak to 37 years next month but will get an additional challenge. He was named Thursday as the Isle Casino's Beat the Elite runner before the first Iowa American Water Bix at Six training run.

Beardsley will get a predetermined head start along the seven-mile course, and if he can be the first person across the finish line, he will win $2,500. This is the 15th year of the event, which has had several different names and sponsors over the years. He was selected from entries received by June 14.

Beardsley first got involved with the Bix when he was 12, working at one of the water stops on the course.

He enjoyed it so much he decided to run the next year and hasn't missed one since.

\"It's the people and the atmosphere,\" Beardsley said. \"It's such a great event, seeing all those people and running past the band. ... I look forward to every mile marker, it has something fun about it.\"

Last year's race presented the biggest challenge. Beardsley, who works for John Deere, tore his ACL last June while competing in another race, which included an obstacle course. Despite having surgery just 10 days before the race, Beardsley was on the course, in a wheelchair, and pushed by family and friends, all of whom were wearing \"Bix with Bob\" T-shirts.

\"It was cool. I knew I was going to keep it going, but I thought there were only going to be four or five people here,\" Beardsley said. \"When I came down here, they all surprised me, I came around the corner, and they were all there. I think there were close to 30 people there to help push. It was by far the most relaxed and fun Bix I ever had. I would have rather been running, but it was still pretty special.\"

Beardsley has been working out at CrossFit Bettendorf since being cleared from his injury but is still apprehensive about how ready he'll be come race day.

But he's willing to give it a go.

\"I'm really nervous about a couple of things,\" Beardsley said. \"I don't know what the head start is going to be, but I know they're going to make it challenging so I'm going to have to put out at least four miles of very hard effort, which is a lot for me. I'm more worried about, to get in that kind of shape in the next five weeks, will my knee hold up to the training? I've been trying to step it up, do a mile, two miles, and so far it's holding up OK.\"

That injury will make it difficult for race director Ed Froehlich to determine a starting point. In years past, Froehlich has used previous times to determine a starting point but has to take into account Beardsley's knee when deciding the starting point.

\"I hope he'll be able to do this,\" Froehlich said. \"Hopefully he can get through 5 miles and get through a decent pace where he can be competitive. ... Because he hasn't been running and just getting back into training, we'll talk and see where he thinks he can do it, and then I'll adjust it and see if that's where we want it.

\"I don't want it just to be a cakewalk, but this guy's got a heart. He'll probably lay it all on the line out there.\"

\u00a0Anthony Natarelli is returning to The Speakeasy in downtown Rock Island this weekend to perform the title role in the Tony-winning musical \u201cHedwig and the Angry Inch.\u201d

Shows will be at 8 p.m. Saturday, plus June 29 and 30, at 1818 3rd Ave., Rock Island, next to Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse. The musical \u2014 first done there in January 2016 \u2014 is being presented by The One Dollar Producer Project, which Natarelli created late last year.

“It's a creative fund I came up with to provide funds for local art projects, making it easier for local shows to happen,” he said, noting members are asked to give at least $1 a month, through Patreon.com/OneDollarProducer. There currently are 27 members.

Other outlets for funding support could be providing video work for local theaters and bands, to improve their promotional capability, he said.

\u201cWe're seeing where the gaps are, people who need help,\u201d Natarelli said. \u201cI want to be a help to as many people as we can.\u201d

\u201cThis not about making my own projects with it,\u201d he said. \u201cI'm excited for it; it also builds in cross-promotion for other things. We have strong creative communities in the area, but they're separated from each other. We hope to break that gap.\u201d

Natarelli is working with producers Mike Turczynski and Andy Sederquist on the project, including \u201cHedwig.\u201d It's a wild rock musical about a fictional band fronted by a transgender East German singer named Hedwig.

Hedwig, formerly Hansel, assumes a female persona after a botched sex-change operation that was performed to allow her to marry an American man and escape East Germany, according to a show synopsis.

\u201cThe music in the show is steeped in the androgynous 1970\u2019s glam rock style of David Bowie as well as the work of John Lennon and early punk performers Lou Reed and Iggy Pop,\u201d the show release said, noting there will be a live band at The Speakeasy.

\u201cWhen Mr. Natarelli approached us about doing the show again, we thought it was a great idea,\u201d Brett Hitchcock, director of audience development for Circa and The Speakeasy, said in the release. \u201cThe intimacy of The Speakeasy makes it the perfect venue for people to come see this show.\u201d

\u201cThis is a dream role for me,\u201d Natarelli said. \u201cI can't wait to take the stage again.\u201d

The show has won major awards, including the 2014 Tony for \u201cBest Revival of a Musical\u201d and 2014 Drama Desk Award for \u201cOutstanding Revival of a Musical.\u201d

Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 the day of the show, available at 309-786-7733, Ext. 2, or at thecirca21speakeasy.com. Those attending must be 18 or older.

With the clock ticking down on the fate of the Rock Island County Courthouse, preservationists are appealing to the public to save the historic building.

The Rock Island Preservation Society and the Moline Historic Society set up an onlilne GoFundMe page on June 10 with a goal of $25,000. The site has raised $450 to date from 12 donors.

\"This is an important cause,\" wrote donor Laura Westerberg. \"I hope this donation helps save this historically relevant building.\"

Funds will be used to create marketing materials and information about the courthouse, and search for private investors, according to a release.

The preservation groups also have placed yard signs in high-traffic areas of the county reading, \"For us, Our kids, Their kids, Their ... Save our courthouse.\"

Diane Oestreich, of the Rock Island Preservation Society, said she hopes the signs drum up more support from the community.

\"We have a lot of quiet supporters, but nobody seems to be calling their county board representatives,\" Oestreich said. \"Those signs show a stylized dome, which is a great idea. If anyone wants a (yard) sign, contact the (groups.)\"

Oestreich said both preservation groups will host a Fourth of July event at the Civil War monument near the courthouse to draw attention to the building.

\"People who survived the Civil War are the ones who built this building,\" Oestreich said. \"This building matters; it's a celebration of the building.\"

The historic courthouse, built between 1895-97, was designed by the Kansas City architectural firm of Gunn & Curtis in the Spanish renaissance style. Rock Island stonecutter Charles Larkin constructed the Bedford limestone exterior. Floors in the central rotunda area are made of marble and tile.

Meanwhile, the deadline of July 18 by which county officials may make a decision on the courthouse is less than a month away.

County board members passed a resolution at the May 15 meeting stating the Public Building Commission would retain $1.6 million for the county until July 18 if a decision was made to demolish the courthouse. After that date, the county will be on its own to pay for demolition of the structure.

Bill Handel, a retired architect, presented an idea to board members at the May meeting showing his plan of what a re-imagined courthouse would look like with a lighted, metal frame dome.

Handel made another pitch to county board members at the June 19 board meeting.

Handel said he recently visited the Element Hotel rooftop bar, 316 12th St., Moline, where he could see the courthouse in the distance. He was struck by the potential view that a reconstructed and lighted dome could offer.

\"Looking toward the courthouse, I was imagining what it would look like with that (lighted) dome,\" Handel said. \"There are so many outside visitors to the Quad-City area who would come over the Centennial (Talbot Memorial) Bridge and say, \u2018what is that?\u2019 I want to give you some idea of what it might do to raise the image of the city of Rock Island if the courthouse is preserved.\"

Handel again presented his idea of a reconstructed dome atop the courthouse that could sit on a base made out of inexpensive synthetic plaster. A skeleton metal-frame dome would be placed on top of the base, each arm of the dome lined in lights.

Handel also showed a \"before\" photograph with an \"after\" overlay, showing how the building would look of the completed project.

The Bedford stone in the Rock Island County Courthouse is of such high quality, Handel said it would cost $15 million to $25 million to replicate just the exterior of the building.

Handel said many historic buildings have been renovated in Davenport with successful results.

\"A city that respects its old buildings respects its old people, its history, and it has a stake in its future,\" he said. \"If you believe Rock Island has a future, you\u2019d revere that old courthouse.\"

The weather that has rolled through the Quad-Cities the last few days should have come with a spoiler alert.

The new Quad-Cities hockey franchise unveiled its name and logo Thursday at the TaxSlayer Center, the Quad-City Storm taking its place in the 23-year history of hockey in the community.

\"Anybody that comes here is now a storm chaser,\" team co-owner Ryan Mosley said. \"We have a hockey team that we hope has energy on and off the ice, through the community, and if we can continue that through our players and our fans, we want to make this an exciting place to be and funnel all that energy right into here.\"

Mosley said nine people submitted the Storm name through the naming contest, one of the top choices.

He declined to list the other choices but did say that a lot of options were variations on the Quad-City Mallards name, which wasn't an option due to the ECHL owning the trademark on the former franchise.

\"We went with the Storm because it's one of those things that I cannot think of anything else with more energy,\" Mosley said.

The announcement, complete with an introduction video and jersey reveal, was met with cheers from the fans in attendance, their excitement about the continuation of hockey evident.

\"It's only fitting after the tornado last night,\" head coach Dave Pszenyczny said. \"Go with something new and I think we're going to be a force to reckon with, and Storm is going to be a perfect logo and team name for the Quad-City area,\"\u00a0

The Storm will make their home debut on Oct. 20 against the Peoria Rivermen, which will be a reunion for Pszenyczny, who played for Peoria the last three seasons.

\"It's never easy after you play for a team, go to face them again,\" Pszenyczny said. \"There's so many familiar faces, but at the end of the day, it's hockey. My job is to win those games, and there's no friends out there. That's the way I played when I was playing, and that's how I'm going to coach.\"

The team name and logo is a big step for a franchise that didn't exist until Mosley and fellow co-owner John Dawson stepped in a month ago to keep hockey in the Quad-Cities after the Mallards announced they were ceasing operations in March.

The team now has a name, coach and website, QuadCityStorm.com, as well as a social media presence.

\"When we made the first announcement, the guys were like, 'We don't have anything,'\" SPHL commissioner Jim Combs said. \"They've really stepped up to the plate with getting the logo, the trademarks and everything done. That part's been really good.\"

Combs said the entire league schedule will be released in the next two to three weeks, and the Storm are already working on getting their season ticket base established.

They've been contacting people who put down deposits on season tickets back in April, and Mosley said he expects season ticket sales to be open to the general public in early July.

The team released season ticket price points Thursday, with packages costing either $378, $490 or $840.

\"The last three weeks have been extremely hectic,\" Mosley said. \"Long hours, 15, 17 hour days and now we're finally getting, not in the home stretch, but a more organized stretch because we've been incognito for two weeks about this name, going back and forth with logo, drafting, the jersey so there's been a lot of buildup to get this done.

\"It's not going to get any easier, but we're going to keep working as hard as we need to.\"

Meanwhile, Pszenyczny is working on recruiting players to take the ice.

\"I was kind of soft recruiting before everything was announced a few weeks ago, and then after it got announced my phone has been non-stop, emails, any sort of social media,\" he said. \"It's nice because I do have strong ties with former players and players that I know know somebody else.

After making a number of roster moves including the addition of two of the Mariners' selections\u00a0from the 2018 draft,\u00a0Thursday's Clinton LumberKings game at Ashford University Field was postponed because of rain and wet grounds.

The opening game of the second half of the\u00a0Midwest League season against Kane County is now scheduled to be made up as part of a doubleheader beginning at 5 p.m. today.

The LumberKings' roster for the game will have a new look following the promotion of pitcher Nick Wells, infielder Louis Boyd and catchers Nick Thurman and Ryan Scott by Seattle to its high-A Modesto affiliate in the California League.

Outfielder Jack Larsen was also placed on the disabled list because of a shoulder injury he suffered during a game on June 10.

Recent Mariners draft choices Keegan McGovern and Zach Scott have joined Clinton.

A ninth-round pick from Georgia where he earned third-team all-American and first-team all-Southeastern Conference honors, McGovern hit .313 in four games at short-season Everett after batting .319 and hitting a team-leading 18 home runs this spring.

Scott, the son of former major leaguer and current New York Mets director of player development\u00a0Dick Scott, started his pro career at Modesto where he hit .167 in two games. A 32nd-round pick from St. Leo, he hit .312 with eight homers.

Pitcher Randy Bell and catchers Ranis Silva and Juan Camacho also join the LumberKings.

Bell arrives from Modesto, where the 2017 10th-round pick from South Alabama was 3-4 with a 4.95 ERA in 13 starts this season.

Silva, who spent 2016 with Cedar Rapids, joined the Mariners in a trade with Minnesota in March, while Camacho will be seeing his first action this season after playing last year at Everett.

Fans with Ohnward Bancshares Night tickets for Thursday's game can use them only for admission to tonight's doubleheader. Fans with other regularly purchased tickets for Thursday's game can exchange them for tickets to any other LumberKings regular-season\u00a0home game this year.

A Davenport sex offender who has convictions for sexually abusing children in Iowa and Missouri has been indicted in federal court on receiving and possessing child pornography earlier this year.\u00a0

A federal grand jury on Wednesday handed up the two-count indictment against Elwyn Lee Vanmeter Jr., 61, in U.S. District Court, Davenport.

He will make an initial appearance on the charges Tuesday.

In February 2017, Vanmeter was sentenced to 24 months in federal prison on a charge of failure to register as a sex offender. He also was placed on 84 months of supervised release once he completed his prison term.

His supervised release began Jan. 8, according to court records. The federal indictment states Vanmeter received child pornography Jan. 21.\u00a0

On Feb. 1, a probation officer made an unannounced visit to his home and found images of child pornography on his tablet.

The probation officer also found adult pornography, which Vanmeter cannot possess under the terms of his supervised releases.

The tablet, as well as a laptop and wireless modem, were seized from the home.

He was arrested the same day. On Feb. 2, the U.S. Probation Office filed a motion seeking to revoke his supervised release on the failure to register charge. A revocation hearing has not yet been set as of Thursday.

Vanmeter was convicted in 1999 of third-degree sexual abuse in Polk County and sentenced to up to 10 years in prison.

He was convicted again in 2005 in Alton, Missouri, on three counts of first-degree child molestation and was sentenced to 9\u00bd years in prison.

Sex offender faces federal child porn charges

A Davenport sex offender who has convictions for sexually abusing children in Iowa and Missouri has been indicted in federal court on receiving and possessing child pornography earlier this year.

A federal grand jury on Wednesday handed up the two-count indictment against Elwyn Lee Vanmeter Jr., 61, in U.S. District Court, Davenport.

May 11 assault case closed, cannot substantiate report

Davenport police said Thursday that they cannot substantiate that a robbery or assault took place in regards to a man who was found with serious injuries May 11.

Police said they came to that conclusion after reviewing several hours of video footage and conducting \u201cnumerous\u201d interviews.

The case is considered closed \u201cunless new evidence arises,\u201d according to police. No other information was released Thursday.

At 3:37 a.m. Friday, May 11, officers responded to the 300 block of West Kimberly Road for a report of a man who had been assaulted.

Police initially said that preliminary reports indicated that the man was walking and was assaulted by unknown subjects. Several personal items also were stolen from him, police initially said.

The man was transported to a local hospital for treatment of serious injuries.

Teen charged as adult with killing her mother

A 15-year-old Morrison, Illinois, girl accused of fatally shooting her mother will be tried as an adult.

A Whiteside County judge on Thursday dismissed the juvenile case, allowing prosecutors to immediately charge Anna Schroeder in adult court with first-degree murder, arson and concealment of a homicide.

If convicted, the teen could spend decades in prison. Had she been convicted in juvenile court, Schroeder could not have been held beyond her 21st birthday.

The teen is accused of killing 53-year-old Peggy Schroeder last July. The mother's body was found in a burning home in Morrison. A friend of the daughter \u2014 16-year-old Rachel Helm \u2014 has been charged as an adult with arson and concealing a homicide.

Woman accused of tossing infant gets 2 years of probation

A Clinton woman accused of shaking her infant daughter and tossing her into a bassinet has been given a suspended sentence.

Naelynn Trude, 22, was sentenced to five years suspended and two years of probation. She pleaded guilty in May to child endangerment resulting in injury, which had been reduced in return for Trude's plea.

Investigators say Trude acknowledged shaking the little girl and tossing her into the bassinet while she continued to cry.

A doctor says the baby's injuries included a skull fracture and retinal bleeding.

Mother accused of failing to properly buckle children before crash

A Davenport woman will be arraigned July 12 on charges that she failed to properly buckle up her three children in a vehicle that was involved in a crash on Elmore Avenue last month.

Nina Sherre Lacefield, 33, last known address in the 1500 block of West 14th Street, was arrested June 13 on two counts of child endangerment-serious injury and one count of child endangerment-bodily injury.

The first two charges are a Class C felony each punishable by up to 10 years in prison, while the third charge is a Class D felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

She remained in the Scott County Jail Wednesday on $15,000 cash or surety bond.

The crash happened at 5:21 p.m. June 13 in front of the entrance to the Cross Creek Apartment complex, 5901 Elmore Ave.

Police said the driver of a Chevrolet HHR driving south on Elmore Avenue was attempting to make a left turn into the entrance of the apartment complex when it turned into the path of a northbound Ford F-150 pickup.

The HHR was struck broadside on the passenger side, injuring all eight occupants, according to police.

Davenport firefighters had to use mechanical means to get some of the occupants of the HHR out of the vehicle.

Lacefield was the front seat passenger in the HHR and her three children ages 3, 6, and 10 inside the vehicle. The driver, who was not named in arrest affidavits, and three other children also were inside the vehicle.

There were not enough safety restraints within the vehicle to secure all six children safely, according to police.

The 3-year-old was taken to Genesis Medical Center-East Rusholme Street, and later flown to University Hospitals, Iowa City, for brain bleeding and injuries to the child\u2019s left arm, according to police.

The 6-year-old also was transported to Iowa City for severe right foot and right leg injuries \u201clikely to cause permanent disfigurement,\u201d according to police.

The 10-year-old, who was sitting in the back cargo area, was transported to Genesis with a possible concussion, according to police.

Lacefield also was cited for having an open container after police say they found an open bottle of vodka on the floor of the front passenger side of the HHR.

Two constants have guided the Quad-Cities River Bandits through the first half of the Midwest League season\u00a0\u2014 an ever-evolving roster and consistent pitching.

\"It doesn\u2019t matter who is out there, the results have been the same,\" said pitcher Parker Mushinski, one of nine players on the River Bandits roster who took the field for Quad-Cities on opening day.

The River Bandits open the second half of the season with a seven-day homestand at 6:30 p.m. today against Beloit. Quad-Cities looks to build on a 40-30 start, which was good enough to win the first-half title in the Western Division by one game over Peoria and Clinton.

\"There\u2019s no reason no matter who is on the mound that they can\u2019t continue to have the same type of success,\" pitcher Peter Solomon said. \"It\u2019s about believing in the system, trusting the coaches and then executing from one game to the next.\"

The results are easy to see.

The collective work of Quad-Cities pitchers dominates Midwest League pitching charts at the midseason break, leading the league in seven statistical categories starting with ownership of the strike zone.

River Bandits pitchers have struck out 714 batters through 70 games, 61 more strikeouts than the next-best effort in the league owned by Clinton and on pace to break the Midwest League record of 1,307 established last season by Fort Wayne.

There is value in the strikeout and in attempting to work the inner half of the zone, something that also leads to a few walks.

Opponents have drawn 280 of them this season, the second-most allowed by Midwest League pitchers and among the biggest areas for potential improvement in the second half.

Quad-Cities pitchers have also limited opponents to fewer hits (486), fewer runs (254) and fewer home runs (27) than any pitching staff in the league.

That has added up to a Midwest League-best collective earned run average of 2.94 and a share of the league lead with eight shutouts.

\"When you are holding people to around three runs per game, it gives you a pretty good chance to win a lot of baseball games,\" Quad-Cities manager Mickey Storey said.

\"We\u2019ve moved some guys up already, and I\u2019m sure there will be more, but the guys who have stepped in continue to get the job done. Pitching and defense have been the story of our season.\"

Four of the five River Bandits who took the field at Tuesday\u2019s Midwest League All-Star Game were pitchers, and three, All-Star starter Patrick Sandoval, Mushinski and Solomon, finished the first half with earned run averages below 3.00.

All three say there is some friendly internal competition within the pitching staff.

\"When one guy has a great outing, you want to follow it up with a good outing of your own,\" Sandoval said. \"It\u2019s not pressure. It\u2019s just wanting to do your part on the team.\"

Mushinski describes the group overseen by pitching coach Graham Johnson as \"pretty relaxed\" as they work from one outing to the next.

\"We all get along really well, and most of us are pretty relaxed,\" Mushinski said. \"There aren\u2019t a lot of over-the-top guys here. We trust our stuff and have good confidence in ourselves to go out and compete. It helps knowing that you have a defense to back you up.\"

Solomon believes the roots of the success can be found before the first pitch of any game is thrown.

He sees it as a byproduct of the philosophy of the Houston organization, one which puts a premium on the strikeout as part of a developmental approach designed to lead to efficiency as pitchers progress through the system.

\"We\u2019re given a good plan to work with, not only game-by-game, but overall, and everybody here sticks to the plan,\" Solomon said. \"We can see that it works. That makes buying into it an easy thing to do.\"

Mushinski sees teamwork as a factor as well.

\"We\u2019re here for each other, and I feel like that\u2019s a big part of it, too,\" he said. \"We like hanging around each other, working together, and at the end of the day it does make a difference. We know pitching and defense work well together with timely hits. It\u2019s a combination that has won us a lot of games.\"

WASHINGTON (AP) \u2014 States will be able to force shoppers to pay sales tax when they make online purchases under a Supreme Court decision Thursday that will leave shoppers with lighter wallets but is a big win for states.

More than 40 states had asked the high court to overrule two, decades-old Supreme Court decisions that they said cost them billions of dollars in lost revenue annually. The decisions made it more difficult for states to collect sales tax on certain online purchases.

On Thursday, the Supreme Court agreed to overturn those decisions in a 5-4 ruling. The cases the court overturned said that if a business was shipping a customer's purchase to a state where the business didn't have a physical presence such as a warehouse or office, the business didn't have to collect the state's sales tax. Customers were generally responsible for paying the sales tax to the state themselves if they weren't charged it, but most didn't realize they owed it and few paid.

Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote that the previous decisions were flawed.

\"Each year the physical presence rule becomes further removed from economic reality and results in significant revenue losses to the States. These critiques underscore that the physical presence rule, both as first formulated and as applied today, is an incorrect interpretation of the Commerce Clause,\" he wrote in an opinion joined by Justices Clarence Thomas, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch.

In addition to being a win for states, the ruling is also a win for large retailers, who argued the physical presence rule was unfair. Large retailers including Apple, Macy's, Target and Walmart, which have brick-and-mortar stores nationwide, already generally collect sales tax from their customers who buy online. That's because they typically have a physical store in whatever state the purchase is being shipped to. Amazon.com, with its network of warehouses, also collects sales tax in every state that charges it, though third party sellers who use the site to sell goods don't have to.

But sellers that only have a physical presence in a single state or a few states have been able to avoid charging customers sales tax when they shipped to addresses outside those states. Online sellers that haven't been charging sales tax on goods shipped to every state range from jewelry website Blue Nile to pet products site Chewy.com to clothing retailer L.L. Bean. Sellers who use eBay and Etsy, which provide platforms for smaller sellers, also haven't been collecting sales tax nationwide.

Under the Supreme Court's decision Thursday, states can pass laws requiring sellers without a physical presence in the state to collect the state's sales tax from customers and send it to the state.

The National Retail Federation trade group, said in a statement that the court's decision was a \"major victory\" but the group said federal legislation is necessary to spell out details on how sales tax collection will take place, rather than leaving it to each of the states to interpret the court's decision.

Chief Justice John Roberts and three of his colleagues would have kept the court's previous decisions in place. Roberts wrote that Congress, not the court, should change the rules if necessary.

\"Any alteration to those rules with the potential to disrupt the development of such a critical segment of the economy should be undertaken by Congress,\" Roberts wrote in a dissent joined by Justices Stephen Breyer, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor.

The case the court ruled in has to do with a law passed by South Dakota in 2016. South Dakota's governor has said his state has been losing out on an estimated $50 million a year in sales tax that doesn't get collected by out-of-state sellers. Lawmakers in the state, which has no income tax, passed a law designed to directly challenge the Supreme Court's 1992 decision. The law requires out-of-state sellers who do more than $100,000 of business in the state or more than 200 transactions annually with state residents to collect sales tax and turn it over to the state.

South Dakota wanted out-of-state retailers to begin collecting the tax and sued several of them: Overstock.com, electronics retailer Newegg and home goods company Wayfair. The state conceded in court, however, that it could only win by persuading the Supreme Court to do away with its physical presence rule. After the decision was announced, shares in Wayfair and Overstock both fell, with Wayfair down more than 3 percent and Overstock down more than 2 percent.

The Trump administration had urged the justices to side with South Dakota.

The case is South Dakota v. Wayfair, 17-494.

Summer Reading is in full swing at the LeClaire Community Library! The Summer Reading Program is an annual event hosted by the library. It helps encourage children and teens to read over summer vacation, in an effort to prevent learning loss or \u201cthe summer slide\u201d. Studies have shown students who continue to read outside of the classroom will likely perform better academically than their peers who do not. We are happy to report that the LeClaire Library\u2019s Summer Reading Program has seen significant growth. From 2013 to 2017 we have had a 300 percent increase in registrations for the reading challenge!

The theme of this year\u2019s Summer Reading Program is \u201cLibraries Rock!\u201d and the library is celebrating with a reading challenge, fun activities that focus on music, and programming and prizes for all ages \u2014 yes, adults too! All events can be found on our website, leclairelibrary.org, and our Facebook page.

Because of the growing interest in our Summer Reading Program, we have formed partnerships with community businesses to cover the increasing costs of supplies, program performance fees, and prizes for participants. Small libraries depend on the support of local businesses.

DJ Carton has not had much time to be a kid so far this summer.

He spent almost a week in Colorado Springs trying out for USA Basketball's U18 national squad. He was in Charlottesville, Virginia, for six days last week at the National Basketball Players Association Top 100 camp.

It has been a chaotic stretch for the Bettendorf point guard.

\"It has gotten to the point where it is kind of a job, and I'm working to make basketball a job for me,\" Carton said Wednesday. \"I want to go to the NBA, and you've got to do things that people aren't doing.

\"Sure, it sucks not hanging out with your friends as much, but I'm trying to do this for my family and my community. I want to fulfill my dreams.\"

The 6-foot-2 rising senior also is deep into the college recruiting process.

Carton has official visits scheduled next week at Michigan and Indiana, schools listed among his top six released last month. Iowa, Marquette, Ohio State and Xavier also are finalists.

Just because Michigan and Indiana are his first officials, Carton said there is no frontrunner.

\"I feel like people think I already have my decision made, but I have no clue at this point,\" Carton said. \"That's why I'm doing this. I'm not just going on visits for fun.\"

Carton plans to visit the other four schools this summer or early in the fall. He's also started to gain interest from Kansas, Duke and North Carolina.

Kansas coach Bill Self, who coached the U18 team to a gold medal, talked with Carton during the tryout camp in Colorado Springs. He hasn't had any direct conversations with Duke or North Carolina.

\"My top six isn't a final six,\" Carton said. \"I'm still open with my recruiting.\"

Carton admitted if a blue blood offered, it would change his outlook.

\"They all kind of fit my style of play, and at the end of the day, they win and get guys to the NBA,\" Carton stated. \"I'm not going to commit, though, right away if they give me an offer. I'm going to go through the process, get to know them and see what really is the best fit for me and my family.\"

Because of that, a decision likely won't come until September or October. Carton is adamant a choice will be made before his high school basketball season commences in November.

\"I don't want to stress and worry about that during my senior season,\" he said. \"I really want to focus on the team, and I feel like we're on to something good here. We want to win a state championship.\"

Ranked 25th in the 2019 class by 247 Sports and 30th by Rivals, Carton will play with his Bulldogs this weekend at the 15th annual Justin Sharp Memorial Shootout in Rock Island.

Bettendorf has compiled a 6-2 record this summer without him. Carton practiced with the team for just the second time Wednesday.

\"Up to this point, it has been a blessing in disguise,\" Bettendorf coach Curtis Clark said. \"With him not being around, it has forced other guys to play outside their roles.\"

Carton believes the experiences of the last month will pay significant dividends in leading the Bulldogs this winter.

The southpaw made the first cut for the national team and was one of 18 players vying for 12 spots.

\"That was honestly a blessing to hear my name, a feeling I'll never forget,\" Carton said of surviving the first cut. \"Then getting cut, it was hard. You put so much work into it, 3- to 4-hour practices two times a day, and to not make it stings.

\"Still, the experience is something I'll never be able to have again.\"

Self had Carton serve more as a facilitator at the camp, which was more one-on-one drill work than up-and-down live scrimmaging.

\"I feel like I held my own and surprised some people,\" Carton said. \"I went in there as an underdog, not very well known being from Iowa. I made a name for myself and gave myself a label.\"

Carton performed well at the Top 100 camp, too. He played for a team coached by New Orleans point guard Rajon Rando.

More than skill development, the camp focused on areas off the court such as leadership skills and keeping your inner circle small.

\"We were in the gym or classroom from 7 in the morning until 10:30 at night so I didn't see any sunlight,\" Carton said. \"Still, the competition was really good.\"

Carton felt that competition has helped him evolve and he'll be a much improved player for the Bulldogs this winter after averaging a school-record 23.6 points per game last season.

\"I feel like my explosiveness and my mentality going to the rim is way different and more aggressive than last year,\" Carton said. \"In a way now, I try to dunk everything.

\"My game is on a different level than last year, but I've still got a lot of things to work on. I want to sharpen those areas and see how high I can get.\"

Clark has witnessed a transformation already in Carton.

\"DJ always has been a confident person, but looking through those names before he went to (Colorado Springs), it was the first time where his eyes got kind of big,\" Clark said. \"I said, 'DJ, you're on that list now.'

After a century of leading boys on wilderness adventures throughout the U.S., Boy Scout Troop 109 in Moline is eager to take a sister troop under its wing.

The enthusiasm swelled this week, leading up to Saturday's public celebration of the troop\u2019s 100th anniversary with Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Moline, the group\u2019s charter sponsor since 1918.

\u201cOur troop is very family-oriented,\u201d said Shellie Houtekier, assistant scout master, whose two sons, Zachary, 12, and Connor, 14, are advancing through the ranks. \u201cA lot of sisters are excited about earning the same badges and awards their brothers have been earning.\u201d

Her husband, Jeremiah Houtekier, joined the troop in 1985 and eventually became an Eagle Scout. His wife began volunteering by his side in 1998.

\"It just stuck with me,\" said Shellie Houtekier, an outdoors enthusiast. \"I\u2019ve gone on numerous campouts with the boys, so to me, it just seems natural to have the girls involved.\"

As of June 11, families were able to enroll their daughters, age 6-10, in Cub Scouts\u00a0associated with the Illowa Council, which oversees 82 troops in Iowa and Illinois.

\"We have three girls who are registered Cub Scouts now at our day camp this week,\" said Chris Kangas, director of the district that encompasses 24 troops in Rock Island, Henry and Mercer counties.\u00a0

Under the new guidelines, existing Cub Scout packs are not required to allow girls into their groups, known as dens. The chartered organization that sponsors the pack may make that decision, establish a new all-girl pack or create one that consists of separate boy dens and girl dens.

Girls ages 11-18 may begin earning the prestigious Eagle Scout rank in February, when Boy Scouts of America officially becomes Scouts BSA.\u00a0

Although they may share some equipment and leaders, sibling troops will be divided into all-boy groups and all-girl groups.\u00a0

\"Boy

\"They might even go camping together, but they\u2019ll be at different campsites,\"\u00a0Kangas said.

The national organization, which was incorporated in 1910, plans to use its traditional curriculum for its future girls\u2019 program.

\"The same things we ask of the boys we\u2019ll ask of the young women,\" said Jeremiah\u00a0Houtekier, Troop 109's church liaison, who supervises fellow adult leaders, among other duties.

John DeWitt currently serves as scoutmaster of the 30-member group.

Troop 109's roots also date back to 1910, but it has continuously rechartered since 1918. In the past century, 107 scouts from the Moline troop have achieved the Eagle Scout rank, a \"very impressive\" statistic, Kangas said.\u00a0Just 7 percent of boys who join troops reach that level of scouting, he added.\u00a0

Shellie Houtekier said they encourage their boys to pursue the Eagle Scout rank before they get their driver's licenses, when life gets busy with other activities. She enjoys watching the scouts mature as they climb the ladder.\u00a0

Merit badge challenges and outdoor excursions around the country teach them a variety of skills, including responsibility, leadership, loyalty and service,\u00a0Shellie Houtekier said.\u00a0

In July, members of Troop 109 will venture to\u00a0Philmont Scout Ranch in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains \u2014 the southernmost sub-range of the Rocky Mountains \u2014 of northern New Mexico for hiking and camping. They routinely take trips to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota as well as the National Scout Jamboree in West Virginia.\u00a0

Geneseo Boy Scout Troop 131 hit the century mark last year, and several other groups in the region are approaching that same mark, Kangas said.

\"Anyone that\u2019s getting up to that level is pretty substantial,\" he said.\u00a0

A line of thunderstorms that developed over Muscatine and tracked over Davenport and the Quad-Cities on Wednesday produced some heavy winds, a lot of rain, and spawned a funnel cloud.

But reports of damage have been minimal, according to the National Weather Service Davenport.

The storms produced a tornado warning, but there were no reports of damage late Wednesday, said meteorologist Tim Gross.

Police and fire departments responded to numerous cars that were stuck in flooded roadways, as heavy rains caused flash flooding, mostly in Davenport.

\u201cIt\u2019s June and for how many years have we had some type of flash flooding,\u201d Gross said.

The storms developed quickly and came in fast, he said, adding that most of the water came down in Davenport.

Through 8 p.m. Wednesday, the rainfall totaled 3.22 inches at the Davenport Municipal Airport, Gross said.

During that same time frame, 1.18 inches was recorded at the Quad-City International Airport, Moline, he said.

Winds stayed between 30-40 mph, he added.

Pea-size hail was reported in Bettendorf.

Gross said that meteorologists will be on the ground Thursday checking for any damage from the funnel cloud.

Since most of the rain fell over Davenport, that is where most of the reports of flash flooding and stalled cars came from. There were no reports of injuries.

Gross said that there are chances for showers and thunderstorms through Friday as an upper level storm system that has been rotating over Nebraska moves over Iowa.

The forecast calls for a 70 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms Thursday and 60 percent during the daylight hours Friday.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday reversed course after days of digging in on a policy that resulted in immigrant family separations at the border, signing an executive order that will keep far more families together at the border.

The order also seeks more authority to detain those families together until the end of their immigration proceedings. That process will begin immediately, which is likely to be met with swift legal challenges, though the order does acknowledge that current law may restrict their hands.

But the order has not changed anything in terms of putting back together families that have already been separated, a government official confirmed Wednesday.

It's a reversal from days of claiming that, in its decision to refer all adults crossing the border illegally for criminal charges and thus sending them away from their kids and into the hands of the Justice Department, the administration had no choice but to separate families.

Here is what the executive order does do:

\"Boy

More than 2,300 minors have been separated from their families crossing the border to the U.S. under a zero-tolerance policy where everyone caught crossing illegally is prosecuted. (AP Photo/Eric Gay)

Keeps families together, for the most part

The executive order states it is the policy of the administration \"to maintain family unity,\" a new position from the administration which had been defending the separation of families and blaming the families themselves for putting themselves in the position of being separated by crossing the border illegally -- saying the administration's hands were tied.

While the Justice Department will continue to prosecute adults who cross the border illegally in federal court, the order says, Trump asks that families be housed together \"where appropriate and consistent with law and available resources.\"

It was not immediately clear whether the caveats would still result in a substantial number of separations.

Keeps families with DHS

In a major change, adults will not be turned over to the Justice Department when they face criminal charges, and will instead stay with their children in detention with the Department of Homeland Security.

That's a change the administration previously said it could not do.

The order maintains an exception for when the child is at risk or there is concern about the child's well-being.

But there's a catch, saying the families will be detained \"extent permitted by law and subject to the availability of appropriations\" -- again something that remains to be worked out.

\"Shelter\"

Doesn't reunite families already separated

The order does not speak to any families that have already been separated -- and existing policies place the onus on parents to find their children in the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services and seek to reunite with them.

There are no new special procedures for those children, an agency official said.

\"For the minors currently in the unaccompanied alien children program, the sponsorship process will proceed as usual,\" Health and Human Services spokesman Kenneth Wolfe told CNN.

That process -- which finds friends, relatives or other suitable volunteers in the US for children in the custody of HHS -- is currently built mainly for the children who come to the US illegally alone, as has traditionally been the focus of Health and Human Services.

But Trump's decision to criminally prosecute all adults caught crossing the border illegally -- even if they have children with them -- has resulted in thousands of children being separated from their parents and essentially defined as alone, then placed in HHS custody.

The existing sponsorship process does not include any procedures for reuniting children with the parents who brought them to the US and may be in government custody, though theoretically once released from custody, a parent could apply to sponsor their child's release.

\"Beds\"

Jumps families to the front of the line in court

In the order, Trump also makes an effort to have families' cases in immigration courts decided more rapidly.

Currently, if a family has a potentially valid claim of asylum, they could have an immigration court date months or years in the future, during which time they are allowed to live and work in the US.

In order to expedite the process for deporting the family or giving them legal status, Trump orders the Justice Department to \"prioritize\" cases \"involving detained families\" -- presumably jumping them in line at immigration court and cutting down substantially the length of time before a judge hears their case.

Seeks indefinite detention

Though the order does not immediately attempt to flout a court settlement that requires children who come with family to be released from detention within three weeks, it does initiate a process to challenge that settlement.

Trump ordered Attorney General Jeff Sessions to file a request in court to change the settlement in Flores v Reno -- setting up a likely lengthy and intense litigation process that would seek the power to detain families in government custody indefinitely.

The settlement, however, is overseen by a judge and an appellate court that already imposed these conditions, making the court challenge an uphill climb for the Trump administration. The administration will have to seek the change from the judge who oversaw the settlement -- over the objection of the previous administration -- in the first place.

\"This is narrower than I anticipated,\" said Cornell Law professor Stephen Yale-Loehr. \"Politically, this allows the administration to assert that it wants to detain families indefinitely -- but a court won't let them do it.\"

In a call with reporters, Gene Hamilton, counselor to the Attorney General, seemed to acknowledge that the administration will need to convince the judge in the Flores case, Judge Dolly Gee, to reverse the previous settlement -- even as he criticized her for making it in the first place.

\"The result of this decision and this ruling has placed the executive branch in an untenable position. Do we catch and release every alien who comes with a child across our southwest border, or do we release (them)?\" Hamilton said. \"It's on the judge, it's on Judge Gee to render a decision here. ...The simple fact of the matter is Judge Gee has put the executive branch into an untenable position, that's why we're seeking for Congress to make a permanent fix.\"

The order also instructs federal agencies -- especially the Defense Department -- to begin to prepare facilities that could house the potentially thousands of families that will now be detained by the government.

There are currently far more beds for single adults in the government than for families, who require different conditions.

With a few thousand families apprehended crossing the border illegally on average each month, detaining all of them could rapidly tax government resources.

HHS has reviewed three Defense Department locations in Texas and will be examining one in Arkansas for potential use in the Unaccompanied Alien Children program, Lt. Col. Jamie Davis, a Pentagon spokesman said.

The military would have no responsibility for any of the HHS-led activities, defense officials say. Officials liken it to being a 'landlord' but not responsible for the management of the housing, security, food services or other activities.

Blames Congress

The order also blames Congress -- specifically its failure to pass immigration legislation -- for the separation of families in the first place, saying the administration had no choice, even as the administration reversed course.

\"It is unfortunate that Congress's failure to act and court orders have put the Administration in the position of separating alien families to effectively enforce the law,\" the order states.

When Davenport aldermen take up the final reading of the ordinance creating the Elmore Corners Overlay District at the next city council meeting, they likely will need to decide if one of the biggest developers in the area will be included in the district.

Alderman Richard Clewell, 6th Ward, has decided to go against the recommendation of the city\u2019s Planning and Zoning Commission and offer a resolution that will include developer THF in the Elmore Corners Overlay District.

Since 2001, THF has been the major developer for many projects in the area, including Walmart, Dick's Sporting Goods, Hobby-Lobby and Field and Stream.\u00a0

The company has asked the council to accept the Planning and Zoning Commission's recommendation to exclude THF from the district.\u00a0

Representatives of THF has said that new requirements of the overlay district would change the design and building agreements that are now in place.

Changing those specifications would place a financial burden on THF in that companies may not decide to come based on the new overlay design specs.

Clewell announced his intentions Wednesday during the council's committee-of-the-while meeting.

Clewell said it has been nearly two decades since development began in the Elmore Corners area.

\u201cI think it\u2019s reasonable to believe that over time there would be additional requirements placed on those occupants of that area,\u201d Clewell said.

\u201cTHF has been a good neighbor, there is no doubt about that,\u201d he said. \u201cBut I believe that due the circumstances, due to the change in time, due to the commitment of the city for the vision for the future that the best thing to do would be to include THF in this resolution.\u201d

In addition to making the area attractive to businesses and shoppers as well as making it bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly, the overlay district will create new building design guidelines that will require buildings to \u201ccontribute to the Elmore Corners destination appearance,\u201d according to the site plan drawn up by architectural and economic development firm of Vandewalle & Associates of Madison, Wisconsin.

The overlay is located on about 264 acres on the northeast side of Davenport at the intersection of interstates 80 and 74.

Alderman Ray Ambrose, 4th Ward, said he would not support Clewell\u2019s resolution.

\u201cI think that\u2019s a horrible message to send businesses in our community, particularly for one that for 17 years has been an outstanding business partner with the city of Davenport,\u201d Ambrose said. \u201cIt (THF) has been the economic engine to billions of dollars of economic impact and construction to our great city.

\u201cWhen government starts to over regulate businesses it sends a very negative message and they (THF) have made a very compelling case why they request that (staying out of the Elmore Corners Overlay District). The zoning commission supports it.\u201d

Alderman Rita Rawson, 5th Ward, said, \u201cI actually agree with Alderman Ambrose.\u201d

\u201cI\u2019m usually a proponent of raising the bar for everyone, but when I look at this particular situation I actually tend to agree with Planning and Zoning,\u201d she said. THF has done \u201ca very good job out there. It\u2019s very professional looking.\u201d

Where the bar does need to be raised is south of Locust Street, \u201cwhere we have a lot of haphazard things happening,\u201d she added.

Alderman Kyle Gripp, at large, said he does not see Clewell\u2019s resolution as anti-business.

\u201cI think we need to get away from creating places with humongous parking lots in front of them, and buildings that cannot be reused or repurposed and I think we need to have consistency in that corridor,\u201d Gripp said.

\u201cIt\u2019s not much to ask them (THF) to go the extra length,\u201d he said.

Iowa and other Midwestern states on the front lines of a trade war are likely to be fertile grounds for the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, predicts Julian Castro, a potential contender for the nomination himself.

\u201cIowa has front-row seat to the danger of this sort of scrambled, reactionary policy on trade,\u201d Castro said in an interview Wednesday. \u201cDemocrats have a better vision for how we can grow our economy and make sure we have fair trade.\u201d

The U.S. Housing and Urban Development secretary under President Barack Obama, Castro, 43, had planned to be in Iowa on Saturday to raise funds for Democrats. But he canceled visits to Iowa City and Cedar Rapids to join activists protesting the Trump administration policy on separating immigrant families that enter the United States illegally.

That \u201ccruel policy,\u201d he said, is \u201canother example of why we need much greater accountability in Congress. The answer is to put Democrats in charge of at least the House.\u201d

His visit \u2014 which Castro said he will reschedule \u2014 was to have been part of the run-up to a decision later this year whether to seek the 2020 presidential nomination.

The former San Antonio, Texas, mayor plans to spend from now through the Nov. 6 election traveling the country in support of Democratic candidates. He will use that time to \u201cget a sense of where our country is at, what Americans are thinking.\u201d

The United States must be the strongest, safest, smartest country in the 21st century, Castro said.

\u201cNow more than ever, all of those three things go together,\u201d he said. \u201cIf we make the right investments in brainpower, in infrastructure, in good jobs, it will make us stronger at home and around the world \u2014 and safer.\u201d

If the United States approaches allies \u201cwith a sense of how we can mutually benefit from success, it will make us economically stronger and safer,\u201d he added.

As a result of the Trump administration taking the country backward \u2014 \u201cIowa is a good example of the challenges that farmers are facing\u201d \u2014 and in terms of alliances abroad, Castro is convinced Iowa and other Midwest states will play a pivotal role in the 2020 presidential contest.

Democrats will have a strong shot to win Wisconsin and Michigan that in 2016 favored Trump over Democrat Hillary Clinton by very narrow margins, he said.

\u201cAdmittedly, Iowa and Ohio, there\u2019s more work to do there,\u201d Castro said. Iowa went for Trump by almost 10 points and Ohio by nearly 9.

\u201cBut Iowa and Ohio are feeling the impact of the decisions this administration has made and its empty promises,\u201d he said. \u201cThey will be very competitive next time.\u201d

Nicole Wallace's son spent three weeks of school days in a barren room where, at one point, he urinated on himself.

When Wallace's son, Keagan, told her he spent his days at Smart Intermediate School in \"the skills room,\" Wallace didn't know that meant an isolation room. She also had no idea why he was sent there.

One day, Keagan, who had an individualized education program, or IEP, to address special education needs, told her he had been \u201cin skills\u201d for three weeks.

She asked school officials what that was, and was taken to a room.

\u201cWhen I walk into this room, there was pee in the corner,\u201d she said. The room was barren, with a bump-out that served as a makeshift bench.

\u201cOne of the boys did that a week ago,\u201d Wallace said a para-educator told her about the urine. \u201cThe janitor hasn\u2019t cleaned it up.\u201d

School administrators told her he had the opportunity to use the bathroom.

Sometimes, he shared the room with the students who had bullied him, Wallace said. Another day, a girl grabbed his testicles and squeezed. Keagan filed a report about the assault, Wallace said, and she filed a state complaint last fall.

Keagan\u2019s last day at Smart was Sept. 29. His mother is home-schooling him until he enters Central High School in the fall.

Now Wallace is one of three Davenport mothers of children with disabilities who want to correct flaws they see in district processes and ensure fair treatment for special education students. All are members of the District Wide Davenport PTO. They went public after a state audit of the district special-education program found \"systemic non-compliance\" with several parts of the federal law that governs education of students with disabilities. As a result, the district must work with a state-selected adviser to address the problems.

After the audit in late January, the Iowa Department of Education said the district must reconvene IEP meetings for hundreds of special education students and provide them compensatory education services, if they're owed them, at the district's cost. It must also work with a national expert to address a disproportionate number of students of color identified for special-education services, and the disproportionate number of minority special-education students subjected to disciplinary actions.

The district did not respond to questions about its special-education program.

Another parent, Gina Hale, wrote to three lawmakers Wednesday to seek help for her daughter, whom she describes as \u201cmedically fragile and non-verbal.\u201d

Hale first contacted U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, and U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds, R-South Dakota, last summer, as her family moved from South Dakota to Iowa.

\u201cSince that time, things have only deteriorated and no one seems positioned to help,\" she said.

Before Hale's family moved, her disabled daughter was placed in a residential school in South Dakota and Hale remained behind to coordinate her daughter's transfer to the Davenport district.

\u201cBoth districts used school tuition residency laws to refuse services to my disabled child while simultaneously continuing to provide services and initiate transfer for my non-disabled children,\u201d Hale said in the letter. \u201cSince then, she has been without educational services for all but about 30 days of school.\u201d

Hale's daughter has not attended school since July, and has become incontinent and no longer can walk, she said.

In the letter, Hale expresses concerns about the district being found to be out of compliance.

\u201cIf the district can walk all over us, what are they doing to those that do not have the social, financial and education resources to fight for their children?\u201d Hale asks in her letter. \u201cThe answer is clear in Davenport: isolation rooms, disproportionate representation, lack of prior written notice, predetermined placements \u2014 in short a hostile and intimidating environment.\u201d

Hale wants to discuss her daughter\u2019s situation with the senators and find \u201cideas to strengthen existing laws.\u201d

\u201cOur procedural safeguards in Iowa are compromised,\" Hale said in the interview. \"They are broken.\"

\u201cWhen I started talking to these moms, I was horrified,\u201d said Kari Dugan, one of the PTO organizers who met Wallace at a school board meeting.

Dugan\u2019s daughter was disqualified from special education her freshman year. \u201cAfter that her grades declined because she was not receiving the supports she needed,\u201d Dugan said. \u201cShe went from a 3.75 (grade point average) to 3.0 and eventually to a 1.5 GPA. As her grades fell her resolve to graduate faded.\u201d

Dugan said her daughter is old enough to know the school district had services available. \u201cThey just did not want to help her,\u201d Dugan said. \u201cIt hurts her that they do not care whether or not she is successful. So she stopped going to school.\u201d

\u201cWe spend all our lives trying to help our kids,\" she added. \"Parents are taught that we should trust the school.\"

Dugan completed home-school paperwork to protect her daughter from truancy. Then the girl enrolled at Scott Community College.

\u201cIt was like night and day,\u201d Dugan said. \u201cWe are really grateful to Scott.\u201d Her daughter needs support at home, Dugan said. \u201cShe is not your average college student, but she is willing to work hard and I am willing to work hard to support her.\u201d

Similarly, Wallace says her son has a new beginning ahead of him. \"He's got a fresh start\" coming at Central, she said. He is academically behind, but \"I do feel like he's going to get his opportunity at Central.\"

CEDAR RAPIDS \u2014 Sen. Chuck Grassley was not encouraged by what he heard from Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross at a Wednesday morning Finance Committee hearing.

What Grassley gathered from Ross\u2019 testimony and an earlier meeting at the White House is that there will be no de-escalation of trade tensions because the Trump administration thinks the United States can outlast China in a trade war.

His take-away from that White House meeting was that if China imposes retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods, the Trump administration will impose more tariffs.

\u201cAnd if they put on more tariffs, we\u2019ll put on more tariffs,\u201d Grassley said. \u201cLet\u2019s say that goes back three or four times, the conclusion, with regard to China, is that because we export only about a third of what they export to us, they need us worse than we need them and soon they will, in a sense, surrender.\u201d

Those were not the exact words used at the White House briefing, he added.

\u201cSo that\u2019s the attitude that\u2019s coming out of the White House, so I don\u2019t see a de-escalation,\u201d Grassley told reporters Wednesday. \u201cWe may never see a de-escalation because China is the second-largest economy in the world and might have more staying power than the president has concluded they have.\u201d

Ross seemed to confirm that outlook with his pronouncement that \u201cwe\u2019ve been at a trade war forever.\u201d

The rest of Ross\u2019 testimony was no more encouraging to Grassley. Ross told senators the Commerce Department has issued determinations on 98 requests for exceptions from steel and aluminum tariffs, granting 42 and denying 56. The Commerce Department will accelerate the process of reviewing those requests.

Grassley said he couldn\u2019t believe what he was hearing.

\u201cIt sounds to me like we\u2019ve got a government-run American mercantilist economy compared to our free-market economy that we all brag about,\u201d he told Ross.

He was referring to the past practice in Europe that promoted governmental regulation of the economy to supplement the state\u2019s power at the expense of rival national powers.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Luka Doncic is about to become an NBA player, though he's unlike the other top prospects who will be drafted.

He's already a pro. He's already a champion.

And he might just be the most accomplished and intriguing player in this class.

After capping his brilliant stay in Spain with another title, the Slovenian guard heads the list of international players expected to be selected Thursday, a teenager whose resume is already more complete than even some of the most season veterans.

\"He may be the most accomplished European teenager to ever come into the draft,\" ESPN draft analyst Jay Bilas said. \"You know, there's very little that is unknown about him. He's not some workout wonder that people are projecting. He's accomplished things, and he has been seen in 5-on-5 against high-level competition for a number of years. He's played professional basketball since he was 13.\"

Doncic couldn't join Deandre Ayton, Marvin Bagley III and the other headliners in New York on Wednesday because he was en route from Spain after finishing off his dream season by helping Real Madrid win its ACB league championship Tuesday. The 6-foot-7 guard made a 3-pointer off one leg with the shot clock running down and Real Madrid clinging to a three-point lead, and his team held on to win the series in four games and allow him to get to Barclays Center in time for Thursday's festivities, rather than stay behind for a Game 5.

He had already been the MVP of both the Euroleague season and its Final Four, the youngest player ever to win both honors, as Real Madrid won that title as well.

\"I'm speechless,\" he told the team's website after Tuesday's victory. \"It has been the season of my life. It's incredible.\"

The Phoenix Suns have the No. 1 pick and are widely expected to draft Arizona center Deandre Ayton, even though new coach Igor Kokoskov coached Doncic last summer on the Slovenian national team that won the nation's first EuroBasket gold medal.

Then it's Sacramento, Atlanta, Memphis and Dallas, and any of them could consider a player who's only 19 but has been playing against some of the toughest competition outside the NBA for years. And while there may always be some skepticism of European players because Darko Milicic bombed so badly after being taken right behind LeBron James and ahead of Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade 15 years ago, it would be a surprise if Doncic failed after all he's already done.

\"He should easily transition to the league really well,\" Miami guard Lonnie Walker IV said. \"I mean, look at what he's doing in the Euroleague. You've got to respect what he's doing. You can't say he's not good and he's the MVP and everything of that spot. So pay respect where it's due. He's a great player. All you can say is tell him to continue to work hard and prove everyone that's doubting him wrong.\"

Even with Ayton, a native of the Bahamas, and Doncic at the top of the list of international candidates, the strength of this draft is at the college level. Power programs such as Duke (Bagley and Wendell Carter Jr.), Michigan State (Jaren Jackson Jr. and Miles Bridges), national champion Villanova (Mikal Bridges and Donte DiVincenzo) and Kentucky (Kevin Knox and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander) could have multiple players taken in the top 10-15 selections of the two-round draft, and teams looking for point guards could choose between freshmen Trae Young of Oklahoma and Collin Sexton of Alabama.

They could give the NBA a second straight strong rookie class, after Utah's Donovan Mitchell, Boston's Jayson Tatum and 2016 No. 1 pick Ben Simmons of Philadelphia all helped their teams advance to at least the second round of the postseason.

\"I think it's a transformational class,\" Missouri's Michael Porter Jr. said. \"I think we've got a lot of different kinds of players: Deandre, Marvin, the big dudes who are special, and then me along with a couple other wings who can do a lot of different things, and then point guard, Trae, Collin Sexton, and then I heard that Luka dude \u2014 I ain't seen much on him but I heard he's special, too. So I think we're a great draft, one of the best in a while.\"

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Collin Sexton isn't asking for much.

All the point guard wants out of Thursday's NBA draft at Barclays Center is to be picked by a good team. Then, he wants a long and injury-free career. Playoff and championship runs would be an obvious \u2014 and desired \u2014 bonus.

\"And to just be happy,\" Sexton said Wednesday. \"Because that's the main thing. Be happy with what you're doing because now it's a job. It's something that's going to feed your family. You have to take it seriously.\"

This is a 19-year-old speaking.

Opting for the fast lane, Sexton declared for the draft after his freshman season at Alabama, a program that hasn't had a player drafted in the last decade. He's only the second Crimson Tide freshman to do so, the first since the one-and-done rule was installed in 2006.

That year was enough.

\"It was amazing,\" Sexton said. \"I learned a whole lot \u2014 good, bad, everything. I feel like just being there and being around the group of guys I was with, I connected pretty well and had a good season.\"

Sexton helped the Crimson Tide reach the NCAA Tournament for the first time in six years. He then scored 25 points in a victory over Virginia Tech to send Alabama to the second round, a feat it had not accomplished in 12 years.

The Southeastern Conference named Sexton SEC Co-Freshman of the Year \u2014 with Kentucky's Kevin Knox, who is also in the draft \u2014 and The Associated Press awarded him Newcomer of the Year. Sexton finished second in the conference with 19.2 points per game, adding 3.8 rebounds and 3.6 assists per contest. He had 29 double-digit scoring games \u2014 16 were 20 or more points, three were 30-plus points.

\"A guy who plays extremely hard, he's an overall great competitor,\" said Oklahoma's Trae Young, the draft's other top point guard prospect. \"Whenever you're a competitor like me, you like playing against people like that.\"

The Young Bull \u2014 a nickname Sexton plans to keep in the NBA \u2014 grew up fast.

\"Well, you have to,\" he said. \"Because you have to leave.\"

But he hasn't had to say goodbye. Not yet.

Alabama coach Avery Johnson has been keeping up with Sexton and will be at draft. Johnson, a former NBA champion and coach, taught Sexton everything he could as a player and as an adult. He keeps reminding the young star to embrace this opportunity, soak it all in because it only happens once.

\"Also, off the court, he just told me to always respect people,\" Sexton said. \"You never know what they can do for you, and you never know who's watching.\"

Good advice, considering all the eyes on him this week.

Sexton's eyes are wide, too. The excitement he feels is obvious. A smile sneaks on his face every time he talks about Thursday's festivities. It's a relief knowing all his hard work has paid off, and there's an eagerness to get back out there.

Since Alabama's season ended, Sexton has been working on his individual game. He's already fast but thinks he can be faster. He went back and watched film to figure out where he can improve \u2014 and has done so.

Next time he's on the court?

\"It'll be a big surprise,\" Sexton said.

There's that excitement.

A year ago, Sexton was fresh out of high school \u2014 his days at Pebblebrook High School in Mableton, Georgia, he said 'feel like forever ago' \u2014 and had just moved into his dorm at Alabama, where he watched the 2017 draft. Pick after pick, he enjoyed players' reactions. They were so genuine; that has always been his favorite part.

\"I just envisioned myself doing it one day,\" Sexton said.

That day is here. It's his turn to experience that life-changing moment and, as he said, just be happy.

It'll be both a dream come true and a job for the future.

\"You grow up wanting to do this,\" Sexton said. \"Everybody knows what's going to come with it.\"

Two men face meth charges

Two Davenport men face numerous charges after a search of their home Tuesday night turned up crystal \u201cice\u201d methamphetamine, packing materials, cash and guns, according to police.

Rodolfo Tellez Gutierrez, 35, was booked into the Scott County Jail early Wednesday on two counts of a controlled substance violation and possession of marijuana. Bond was set at $75,000 cash or surety.

Louie Adan Gutierrez, 33, was booked on two counts of a controlled substance violation and one count each of possession of a firearm or offensive weapon by a felon, unauthorized possession of an offensive weapon, failure to affix drug tax stamp, and unlawful possession of prescription drugs. Bond was set at $75,000 cash only.

Both men have a preliminary hearing June 29.

Just before 8 p.m. Tuesday, Davenport police executed a search warrant at the Gutierrez home in the 300 block of East 11th Street.

Police say Rodolfo Gutierrez was in possession of two clear plastic bags of crystal methamphetamine. Total weight of the bags was 2.7 grams, according to police.

He also had a clear plastic bag containing 4.4 grams of marijuana, according to police.

Louie Gutierrez was in possession of 139.4 grams of methamphetamine, according to police.

Police say he also had 13 different types of prescription pills for which he did not have a prescription. He also had a pistol, a double-barrel shotgun and a sawed off shotgun in his \"living quarters,\" according to police.

The sawed off shotgun had a barrel length of less than 16-inches, which makes it an offensive weapon, according to police.

Louie Gutierrez is a convicted felon and is prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm. He admitted to officers that he sells methamphetamine, according to police.

Officers also found packaging, drug notes, cash and digital scales, which police say is consistent with narcotics trafficking.

Police seek more information in death of 23-year-old

The Moline Police Department seeks the public's help in determining the last hours of the life of Taylor Kirklin, 23, of Moline.

Police and fire were dispatched at 5:18 a.m. Monday to the 26000 block of 16th Street for a welfare check and found him dead in the yard of a residence.

Rock Island County Coroner Brian Gustafson said earlier this week a preliminary autopsy disclosed \"no anatomical cause\" for the death, adding toxicology results are pending. Toxicology tests detect the presence of chemical substances, including alcohol and drugs.

Moline Police Detective Michael Griffin said police have launched a criminal investigation into Kirklin's \"suspicious\" death.

They seek any information regarding the whereabouts and the acquaintances of Kirklin during the last afternoon/evening hours Sunday through the early morning hours Monday.

Police ask anyone with information to call the Moline Police Department\u2019s Criminal Investigation Division at 309-524-2140 or Crime Stoppers of the Quad-Cities at 309-762-9500.

Stolen car defendant faces new charges

An Illinois man free on bond after he crashed a stolen car in Davenport earlier this month was arrested Monday in Cedar Rapids for possessing a stolen vehicle.

Jeremiah R. Cruz, 18, faces charges of second-degree theft, a Class D felony, and no valid driver\u2019s license in Linn County.

Cedar Rapids police were dispatched at 11:42 a.m. to Target West, 3400 Edgewood road SW, for a report of a suspicious person prowling vehicles in the store parking lot.

A witness got a license plate of the vehicle, which was reported stolen Sunday in Davenport.

The vehicle left the parking lot as officers were responding and an officer spotted it in the 2400 block of Edgewood Road SW and pulled it over and arrested Cruz, according to police.

Cruz was not in the Linn County Jail as of Wednesday afternoon, according to jail officials. A preliminary hearing is tentatively scheduled for June 29.

He has been free on his own recognizance in a stolen vehicle case in Scott County District Court.

Police say Cruz stole a 2013 Volkswagen Jetta at the EZ Stop, 2923 Brady St., at 12:10 p.m. June 6.

The owner of the vehicle identified Cruz as being present at the scene prior to it being stolen, according to police.

Later that afternoon, Cruz was driving the stolen vehicle south on Division Street and through the intersection of Division and West 36th Street, according to police.

A 1999 Plymouth Voyager was driving north on Division and was turning left on West 36th Street when the two cars collided, according to police.

Both cars were totaled and the driver of the Plymouth Voyager suffered minor injuries.

Witnesses told police that Cruz retrieved items from the vehicle and then left on foot. He was followed by witnesses and detained until police arrived, according to police.

He was charged with second-degree theft, leaving the scene of an accident, and no valid driver\u2019s license.

Ex-teacher gets prison time for sexual abuse

A former Geneseo math teacher was sentenced to two consecutive five-year prison terms on two counts of sexual abuse Wednesday in Henry County Circuit Court.

Jayme K. Farrell, 33, of Morrison entered a fully negotiated plea to two counts Class 2 felony criminal sexual abuse of a female between the ages of 13 and 17. Six other counts were dismissed.

In addition to the prison terms, Farrell will have three years to life of mandatory supervised release on his release, fines and fees including a $500 sexual offender fee and a $200 sexual assault fine on each count. He will also be required to register as a sexual offender.

Henry County State's Attorney Matt Schutte offered the factual basis for the charges, saying Farrell was a Geneseo High School math teacher prior to his arrest. He noted Farrell's teaching license may be revoked because of the case.

He said Geneseo police were called to investigate the report of inappropriate contact between a teacher and a student. Farrell admitted to having an inappropriate relationship in the summer months of 2015 while tutoring a student. Schutte said it was reported that after the first sexual encounter the female told Farrell she was still 17 and he did not seem to care and still continued a sexual relationship.

Judge Clayton Lee accepted the plea.

Saying it was time to celebrate, not separate, immigrant families, Lt. Gov. Evelyn Sanguinetti led an Immigrant Heritage Month program Wednesday in Rock Island.

It was co-sponsored by the Illinois Department of Human Rights, Western Illinois University and the Chicago Minority Supplier Development Council.

Dream awards were given to four individuals or organizations for their work for immigrants in the community.

Human Rights director Janice Glenn presented the awards to Bob and Blenda Ontiveros, the Quad-Cities Alliance for Immigrates and Refugees, the Greater Quad-Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and World Relief, Moline, during the program held at the Martin Luther King Center.

\u201cToday we celebrate those who embody the American spirit and work to ensure that everyone can achieve the American dream,\" Glenn said. \"Each of our honorees has made it a priority to ensure that immigrants have the opportunity to achieve the life they came to Illinois to pursue.\"

Sanguinetti's parents had fought for her to have the opportunity to achieve her dreams and she utilized her heritage to accomplish those dreams, she said.

\u201cAs our nation\u2019s first Latina lieutenant governor and the daughter of immigrant parents \u2014 my mother a refugee from Fidel Castro\u2019s Cuba and my father an immigrant from Ecuador \u2014 I'm proud of Illinois\u2019 rich cultural diversity and heritage. It's what makes us special,\" Sanguinetti said. \u201cWe are a country of immigrants. Our ancestors came to America for freedom and opportunities. This month, I urge everyone to reflect on the values that make us the greatest nation on Earth.\u201d

It hit home to her, she said. \"As a Mom, no one could rip my children out of my arms,\" she said.

Families should not be separated, Sanguinetti said. \"Bruce Rauner and I are together on that,\" she said.

\"But this is a day we're celebrating immigrants,\" Sanguinetti said.
