Technically speaking

According to one web-site In 2015, a storm blew through Amber, Iowa. When it had passed, two hula hoops were dangling off the limbs of a tree on County Home Road. No one is sure if someone put the hula hoops there, or if they were somehow blown in the wind and lodged into the tree during the storm, as the local story goes.

Racial reconciliation remains a mission for the Rev. Donald Johnson who is marking his 25th year as pastor and preacher this weekend.

Johnson will mark his silver anniversary during services at 11 a.m. Sunday at Destiny Baptist Church of Christ, in a suite at the Holiday Inn Rock Island, 226 17th St. The event will be followed by a dinner at Flavour Fine Foods, 1720 E. Kimberly Road, Davenport.

His anniversary theme will be \"Ambassador of Reconciliation\" based on II Corinthians 5:20.

Special guest speaker will be the Rev. Richard P. Wilson, a past pastor of the People's Missionary Baptist Church of Rock Island and the retired pastor of Tried Stone Baptist Church in Detroit. Wilson presided over Johnson's 1993 installation service.

Destiny Baptist Church of Christ is in its ninth location after starting in a former Christ Scientist Church building. It also has met in the YWCA, Fort Armstrong, the Hickman Center, a Walgreen\u2019s, the Villa de Chantal, a Disciples United of Quad-Cities location and Rock Valley Baptist Church.

Johnson graduated from Black Hawk College in Moline, the American Baptist College of the Bible in Nashville, Tennessee, and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He attended Augustana College in Rock Island and Howard University School of Religion in Washington, D.C.

Johnson said he relishes his church's Isaiah 56:7 mission statement of being \"a house of prayer for all people,\" but said he's long been troubled by an 1845 Southern Baptist Convention decision letting church missionaries own slaves. The ruling wasn't revoked until 1995, and Johnson has since made it his mission to apologize to blacks and reconcile races.

\"I've been trying to figure out how to bless all people since,\" Johnson said. \"It's in my job description.\"

SAN DIEGO \u2014 On her darkest days, Kathleen McCartney couldn't fathom ever competing in the Ironman World Championship triathlon again.

The La Jolla, Calif., resident had won the competition on Hawaii's Big Island in 1982, famously passing a stricken Julie Moss in the final yards. Deeply in love with the sport, McCartney raced a handful more times after that.

But in 2007, the mother of four was suffering debilitating back pain from a ruptured herniated disk that had the iron woman curled up on the couch in agony.

\"I was starting to lose leg function. I couldn't walk properly. I was stumbling around,\" McCartney recalled. \"I had three kids who I was driving all over. I would somehow crumple myself into the car, take them to school, get through the day, cook dinner, and be on the couch with a heating pad.

\"I couldn't live with the pain the rest of my life. It was unimaginable.\"

Knowing the depth of that despair, McCartney has a message: Don't ever lose hope.

The 59-year-old competed in her 12th Ironman World Championship recently, amid a celebration of the 40th edition of the race. She finished the race in 15 hours, 52 minutes and 28 seconds. It has been 11 years since she underwent successful back surgery.

McCartney has said the surgery saved her life, but that still didn't put her back on track for the Ironman.

\"I decided to take a very, very conservative route,\" she said. \"I made the decision to never run again, to never do a triathlon. The pain was so dark that I couldn't risk it.\"

Another kind of pain flipped her thinking. In 2010, McCartney went through a devastating divorce after 25 years of marriage and felt as if she'd lost the essence of herself in the process.

\"I needed to get my power and strength back,\" she said. \"Where am I going to find that? Of course, it was Ironman that makes me feel like a champion again.\"

Having worked diligently to strengthen her core to avoid further back injury, McCartney resumed training again and did the 2012 Ironman, and she's rarely slowed down since.

For the Ironman race that requires its participants to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and run a 26.2-mile marathon, McCartney no longer runs in training. But in a normal week she puts in 160 miles on her bike, swims 90 minutes and walks about 12 miles.

McCartney's commute to work would make most of us exhausted just thinking about it. Twice a week from her home in La Jolla, she rides the coast highway for 25 miles to Carlsbad, where she serves as a patient liaison at the Tri-City Wellness and Fitness Center. The commute north includes a steep grade, and the return trip entails a long climb.

\"Oh my gosh, psychologically, it's tough,\" she said of the big climb. \"I know that it's there at the end of every single ride. But I have to do it. There's no way around it.\"

On weekends, McCartney does one 60-mile round-trip speed ride from her home with a friend, Max Affarano, whom she drafts behind. They average 20 to 25 mph, though there is a coffee break that comes in each direction.

\"You've got to have some fun, right?\" McCartney said with a laugh.

And let's remember: She is 59.

For McCartney, it's never been about her age because so much about competing in Ironman is mental.

From the time she first watched the finish of the Ironman in Kailua-Kona in 1981, she believed it was something she was destined to do, no matter how audacious, considering she'd never extensively worked at any of the three disciplines.

\"I had a dream. I believed I could do it,\" McCartney said. \"Once I believe I can do something and am committed, quitting isn't an option. I don't mean this to sound cocky, but Ironman gave me the belief that anything is possible. I believe that so deeply.

\"Every single day since I did my first Ironman, I've believed that if someone came up to me and said, 'Kathleen, can you do the Ironman tomorrow?' I would have said yes. That's the gift the Ironman has given me. It's given me that strength, mentally and physically.\"

In preparing for last year's race, McCartney had a singular focus. She wanted to cross the finish line with Mike Levine, a Stage 4 pancreatic cancer patient whom she was mentoring. Levine's body, wracked by chemotherapy treatments, held up through the swim and 53 miles of the bike ride until he and McCartney had to stop.

\"Mike wanted me to go on and finish,\" McCartney recalled. \"I said, 'We're here together. I don't need another medal.' We decided to stay together, and it was actually beautiful. It was as deeply moving and as rich an experience as any finish I've ever had.\"

Levine began training for this year's Ironman, but his limited lung capacity didn't allow him to continue, McCartney said.

She dedicated this year's effort to Paul Smith, a cancer patient with whom she worked through her \"Ironman in Minutes\" program at Tri-City. Smith died in July. Another patient in the program who is an inspiration is Katie Gutzwiller.

\"I'm racing it for them,\" McCartney said before the race. \"And also just for life. This gives me life. It breathes life back into me every day.\"

For the first time in months, I put on my Hunter boots to walk to yoga. It was pouring rain, and I didn't want (another!) ClassPass cancelation fee. So, I sucked it up and plodded along, meandering around the puddles. And halfway there, I began to enjoy it. \"How refreshing a bit of rain is!\" my mum always says.

She's right: I even laughed when a whoosh of wind knocked my umbrella behind me and soaked my butt. We can't control the change in seasons. But we can decide not to hate them!

What might you have more control over than you realize? Just because other people complain about certain things doesn't mean you have to. You can be a rebel and enjoy whatever comes your way instead (or at least tolerate it in style)\u00a0\u2014 and you can begin by taking control of events that most people whine about.

1. WHETHER YOU GIVE SOMEONE THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT.

Are you quick to criticize or call someone out before you know the full story? A friend of mine was being snappy and short with me at drinks recently. She said she was tired and left early. \"What's her deal?\" I thought initially. I even mentally chastised her for wasting my Friday night fun. I'm not texting or calling her back for days, I decided, as punishment.

The next afternoon, as I walked out of a 7-Eleven, I had a voicemail. I listened. She was sorry: She'd been embarrassed to tell me that right before we hit the bar her doctor had called to tell her she had an STI. She was a mess. Naturally, all was forgiven and forgotten in an instant. But even if you never receive a truthful voice explanation, where might you be holding back the benefit of the doubt \u2014 just like I did?

2. IF YOU MAKE THE EFFORT.

All we can ever control is effort. And in every situation, our level of effort is up to us. Are you gonna sweat at that Spin class or peace out, pretending you're leisurely cycling through France? Will you prepare for that big meeting or roll up with a hangover and a pen that doesn't work? Are you going to bite your partner's head off when you're tired or bite your tongue when he's late ... again?

I find it comforting to know that effort level is all me. Even when I decide it's a lower-level day and I just can't deal, that's fine. I take the pressure off and dial my energy back up the next day.

3. HOW YOU CHOOSE TO TALK TO YOURSELF.

It still astounds me \u2014 and I still cringe a little \u2014 when I hear people say stuff ranging from \"my muffin top\" to \"I failed at my marriage,\" and \"I'm so terrible at X or Y.\" You can be nicer to yourself! It's critical that you are!

When you consciously choose kinder language \u2014 language that you'd use with a friend who you love and respect \u2014 your self-esteem will shift in an instant. Would you tell a friend she has a muffin top or that she's a failure or that she's terrible at something? I doubt it. Whatever you'd tell him or her, tell yourself. And see the magic that happens within you.

4. IF YOU DECIDE TO GO FOR IT OR NOT.

I Instagrammed one of my favorite statements a couple of weeks ago:

As a kid who grew up on welfare with dysfunction, who \"should\" carry a lot of shame, I've worked on myself (see No. 3!) to the point where I give myself permission to pursue my dreams even though I'm not as qualified as other people. I have a high-school education. I don't have fancy qualifications or credentials. But I believe in myself.

And believing in yourself? It's so underrated. Because it's the greatest force there is. And the best part? It's 100 percent up to you.

Take one look at the Kuno Struck mansion, and you'd probably not guess that it's in central Davenport.

With its style of architecture, stone-and-red brick facade and gables with ball toppers, the looming structure looks more like something you'd expect to find in France or England or on some old-money estate on the East Coast.

But, no, the Struck mansion is definitely in Davenport, hiding out in the trees next to what used to be the former Marycrest College campus, just east of the Putnam Museum.

Retired Quad-City Times columnist Bill Wundram wrote about the home in 1958 when he was the Sunday editor of the Times-Democrat. The article was one in his series of \"Magnificent Mansions of the Quad-Cities.\"

He described its rooms \u2014 the grand central staircase in the foyer, the stone fireplace in the massive living room, the honeycomb ceiling in the dining room and the curved walls with arched, colored glass windows in the solarium.

Patterned cloth wallpaper covered the walls and some of the ceilings and just about every room had leaded glass windows, most with some colored glass as well, he reported.

Those features still exist and on Oct. 8, when Realtor Rich Bassford listed the property for sale with photos posted online, he began getting inquiries from all over the country.

\"We have had so much interest,\" Bassford, owner of Re/Max Elite Homes, Moline, said on Wednesday. \"Pennsylvania, Florida, California, Georgia. In fact, there was a guy going to fly in today from Ohio. And we had a crew from Florida that wanted to film two scenes for a horror movie here.\"

Pictures of the home received 88,000 \"shares\" and \"likes\" in four days when they were posted on the \"For the Love of Old Homes\" Facebook page, he said.

And then just like that \u2014 in little more than a week \u2014 Bassford had an offer from a Quad-City area buyer. The asking price was $300,000 because, obviously, the place needs work. Some walls and ceilings have water damage, the grounds are overgrown and everywhere there is a need for fix-up.

But what architecture, what history.

Long-time Quad-Citians may remember the mansion from its former lives \u2014 as a private home with lavish parties, a meeting place for the former Marycrest College, and as a show home for the Tri-City Symphony Orchestra, now the Quad-City Symphony.

History

The home was built during 1910-11 by Dr. Kuno Struck and his wife, Norma Petersen Struck, daughter of Max D. Petersen, the oldest son of the founder of Petersen's Department Store, a forerunner of the present Von Maur chain, according to Quad-City Times archives.

It was designed by Walter Kruse and Rudolph J. Clausen; the latter was the son of Davenport's most prominent 19th century architect, Frederick J. Clausen.\u00a0

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.

Although Struck was a medical doctor, he practiced only a short time after his marriage, instead devoting his time to extensive travel, according to a biography included in the national register nomination. He also was a vice-president of the former Davenport Bank & Trust Co.

After Struck's death at the age of 63 in 1947, his wife and daughter, Dorothy, continued to live in the house, along with Dorothy's husband. A gardener and chauffeur also lived on the grounds, according to the \"Magnificent Mansion\" article. (The car was a Lincoln Continental limousine.)

Those were the years \u2014 the mid '50s to mid '60s \u2014 of the lavish parties, with musicians playing on the terrace in the summer and a pianist at the Steinway grand piano inside, according to the late Shirley Davis, writing in the Times.

The home eventually was sold out of the family and in 1978 it was acquired by Marycrest College, whose leaders planned to use it for offices and as a community gathering place that could be rented for weddings, receptions and meetings.

In 1984, a bevy of interior designers made over the home as a Decorators' Show House fundraiser for the symphony.

In 2002, the then-Marycrest International University closed due to declining enrollment, and the campus was purchased by Quad-City developer Chris Ales. His company redeveloped the campus into Marycrest Senior Living but the Struck mansion was not part of that.

In 2005, Ales sold the home to Marlene and Donald Talbot. It is now being sold by a holding company. The house comes with a three-car-plus garage and 3.2 acres of land.
