Purple celosia flowers and a Barbie doll appeared Tuesday at the edge of a man-made lookout along the Rock River in Milan, where emergency personnel spent most of the day searching for the body of a 5-year-old girl.

The impromptu memorial recognizes the child who fell into the river Monday night near the Steel Dam, along with members of her family.

Three others were rescued, including the child's mother and brother. All were wearing life jackets when their canoe entered the dam.\u00a0

A 34-year-old woman was paddling the boat with two of her children and a family friend when \u201cthe current swept them into the dam,\u201d Illinois Conservation Police Capt. Laura Petreikis said.

Rescuers were called around 6:30 p.m. They said life jackets are not a sure thing when it comes to safety near the dam's powerful undercurrent.

\"It's so strong, it can rip life jackets off or pull you under, whether you have a life jacket on or not,\" Petreikis said.

\"Steel

What appears to be a small memorial sits Tuesday on the bank of the Rock River near the Steel Dam in Milan while emergency personnel search for the body of a 5-year-old girl in the river.

First responders rescued an 8-year-old boy and a 9-year-old boy from waters downstream, but the woman and her 5-year-old daughter were trapped below the dam before the mother was pulled to safety, Conservation Police said. The search for the girl was suspended about 9 p.m. due to darkness, Illinois Department of Natural Resources spokesperson Tim Schweizer said.\u00a0

The mother and the two boys were treated and released from an area hospital,\u00a0Petreikis said.\u00a0

Conservation Police, the Moline Fire Department and representatives from Ted's Boatarama, Rock Island, resumed the recovery effort Tuesday morning. A Conservation Police boat used sonar to take underwater images near the dam. Storms halted the search for about two hours Tuesday afternoon before emergency personnel returned to the river shortly before 5 p.m.

\"We're trying to bring closure to the family as fast as we can, but the river is unpredictable, so it's difficult,\"\u00a0Petreikis said.

Conservation Police and the Moline Fire Department planned to continue the search and recovery operation Wednesday morning.\u00a0

The Steel Dam is a chronically dangerous place.

The undercurrent is swift and has caught many people by surprise, including several who lost their battle with the raging river in recent years.

In 2014, two men were rescued from the Rock River at the Steel Dam when they were sucked under the water and clung to a tree branch to survive.

A year earlier, a 40-year-old Cambridge man died at the perilous Steel Dam after being thrown from a personal watercraft. The deceased and a friend ignored warning signs and attempted to ride over the dam.

A boil, or \u201chydraulic roller,\u201d is created when water rolls over the top of the low-head dam, eroding the river bottom over time. A turbulent, washing machine-like effect in the water is the result.

In 2008, a 20-year-old woman was wading upstream of the dam when she too was sucked under the water and drowned.

And in 2007, a 70-year-old fisherman died after he fell into the Rock River at the Steel Dam.

Justin Lockett was just 30 years old and in the prime of his life when he fell down some steps and hit his head. He never regained consciousness.

Two days after the fall, as his wife and soulmate, Kate, stood by his side in an Iowa City hospital room, the machines to which he was attached sounded an alarm.

Lockett's vital functions had been declining hourly since he was flown to Iowa City from a Davenport hospital emergency room, and the alarm indicated brain activity had ceased.

On May 5, 2014, Lockett \u2014 an\u00a0 Army National Guard veteran of Iraq, a summa cum laude graduate of Western Illinois University-Macomb and a fan of fishing, golf and poker \u2014 lost his life.

But because the Davenport man was an organ donor, other people found life.

His heart, liver, pancreas and both kidneys and lungs were removed and transplanted, saving five lives, Kate Howard, now remarried, said.

His corneas gave sight to two people.

More than 50 people stood to benefit from his gift of bone and connective tissue, according to the Iowa Donor Network, the nonprofit organization that coordinates organ donations and transplants in Iowa.

And four years later, Howard continues to advocate for organ donation in Justin's memory.

On Saturday, May 5, she organized her fourth annual Rusty Revolution, a fundraiser event held at Pub 1848, at Bass Street Landing in Moline, that netted $9,000 for the Iowa Donor Network to be used for donor awareness.

The money provides materials for volunteers to use in speaking to clubs or schools about organ donation as well as grief resources and special events for donor families. It also funds after-care materials for recipients, encouraging them to tell their stories, Tony Hakes, public outreach manager for the donor network, said.

The event Howard sponsors is called \"Rusty\" because that was Justin's nickname from his junior high days when \"Justy\" somehow became \"Rusty,\" and \"Revolution\" because she wants to bring about a revolution in which many more people register to become organ donors, she explained.

Her first event in 2015, held at O'Keefe's, her and Justin's favorite bar, raised $7,000. The next two years brought in $8,500 each, for a four-year total of $33,000.

That amount is one of the largest single-family donations in the state, Hakes said.

People attending the fundraiser pay \"admission\" for a commemorative glass: This year the design said \"4th annual Rusty Revolution\" (with the triangular recycle symbol taking the place of the \"o\" in revolution) and the words \"Recycle Yourself.\"

Last year it was, \"Who wouldn't want a piece of this?\", representing a bit of humor in the organ donation community.

With the glass comes free beer for four hours, music (sometimes a deejay, sometimes a band), a bags tournament, a 50-50 raffle and a silent auction of gift baskets solicited from businesses. About 200 people attended this year's event.

Howard, a real estate agent with ReMax Elite Homes, also drums up sponsors. This year they were Amber Ernst with New American Funding, a mortgage company; ReMax Elite Homes; Roger Harrington; Gomez May law offices; QC Roof Drs.; and Country Financial.

Hearing from recipients

Immediately after the transplants in 2014, Howard was eager to hear from the people who had received Justin's organs. \"I know better now,\" she said. \"I don't fully understand it, but they have guilt. They know a loved one passed away, and they don't know what to say.\"

The procedure is for the donor's family to reach out to the recipients first. Howard did that, writing to \"every single one of them.\" She heard back from several, including an 83-year-old cornea recipient named Frances.

\"Dear Donor Family,\" begins the letter that Howard keeps among her things. \"There is no way I can thank my donor for the way it has changed my life.

\"I am a grandmother, but I used to be a school librarian. I am an avid reader and have really missed being able to go on an adventure through books.

\"My gratitude is never ending.\"

Becoming a donor

For Justin, the decision to become an organ donor was made when he was a teenager getting his first driver's license, Howard said. A clerk asked him if he wanted to be a donor, and when he said yes, the preference was indicated on his license with a \"Y\" next to \"organ donor.\"

It was as simple as that.

And about 15 years later, five strangers received the gift of life.

Some Davenport Portillo's fans said it was a \"gut punch\" when they learned one of their favorite restaurant chains would likely be built in their neighborhood.\u00a0

\u201cA cake shake and two dogs from Portillo\u2019s is one of my favorite meals, but if it\u2019s going to be in my backyard and if I lose access to 53rd Street and my neighborhood, that\u2019s concerning,\u201d resident Adam Brunner said Thursday night.

Brunner was one of more than 60 residents at a neighborhood meeting, following the city of Davenport\u2019s announcement Wednesday that a developer is working to build Portillo\u2019s across from Costco Wholesale along 53rd Street. Most residents said they would be happy to see a Portillo's built in Davenport, but begged the city for street repairs and a traffic plan.

Developer William Torchia, who spearheaded Portillo\u2019s opening in Peoria this spring, has requested the rezoning of 6.5 acres, south of East 53rd Street and east of Lorton Avenue, from a residential to commercial development. The property is south of the new Costco, which is expected to open in October.\u00a0The city Plan and Zoning Commission will hear the request Tuesday.

To make way for the multi-use development, which would have room for three other businesses in addition to Portillo\u2019s, he said nine residences would have to be torn down.

\u201cThose nine homeowners are now under contract,\u201d he said.

Plus, a portion of Fairhaven Road would be vacated, according to Civil Engineer Devin Birch, with Austin Engineering. That concerned several homeowners in the area, who expect vehicles to begin cutting through Lorton Avenue to avoid the increased traffic.

\u201cI have four little kids all under the age of 5, and they like to run in the yard and play. My big concern is for them to have the increase in traffic and then having something happen to them,\u201d Lorton Avenue resident Courtney Wilson said. \u201cIt was already bad because we knew it would increase with Costco, and now having this, I feel like we\u2019re getting shut out of our neighborhood.\u201d

Several residents, including Peg Neilson, said Lorton Avenue is deteriorating and not built to handle more traffic.

\u201cI\u2019m not opposed to a new restaurant coming to town. That\u2019s great,\u201d she said. \u201cBut my biggest concern is the dangerous situation that\u2019s being created and how the city would allow rezoning when the existing thoroughfares don\u2019t support it.\"

In the next two years, planner Ryan Rusnak said the city will widen 53rd Street from Brady Street to Elmore Circle to five lanes with a center turn lane. The city will also interconnect all of the traffic signals and monitor the timing from a remote location.

Birch said a firm is conducting a traffic study to learn how Portillo\u2019s would impact 53rd Street. The proposed four-building development, with 208 parking spaces, would share a signalized intersection with Costco.

\u201cI have not been able to get Lorton or Fairhaven on the priority list for streets to be done yet,\" Alderman Rich Clewell, 6th Ward, said. \"But we\u2019re looking at no trucks being able to go through Lorton. Speed limits may need to be adjusted. There are ways we can try to control some of that on Lorton.\u201d

Other residents voiced concerns about flooding on Lorton Avenue and Fairhaven Road, stormwater run-off and their neighborhood\u2019s changing landscape. With Costco and now plans for Portillo's, Clewell said 53rd Street \"will never be the same.\"\u00a0

Birch said an underground stormwater detention plan should reduce run-off.

Several neighbors said they had mixed feelings about the plans, especially those who are fans of Portillo\u2019s. Casey Carothers moved to Lorton Avenue in October, he said, and the announcement of both Costco and Portillo\u2019s came as a shock.

\u201cIt\u2019s hard because I love the idea of a Portillo\u2019s right down the street,\u201d he said. \u201cBut I wish it wasn\u2019t so close. I want a Portillo\u2019s in my town but not my backyard.\u201d

While the two-hour meeting was filled with heated discussion, thousands of Quad-City residents on social media are rejoicing at the plans to bring Portillo\u2019s to Davenport.

\u201cI\u2019m really excited about Davenport,\u201d Peggy Hart, vice president of real estate with Portillo\u2019s, said. \u201cWe\u2019ve focused on the Quad-Cities for a long time because of the level of retail here. And with Costco coming in, it\u2019s a really dynamic area.\u201d

She said the Davenport spot would be Portillo\u2019s first Iowa location.

Birch said Portillo\u2019s has not officially agreed to the proposal. He added there aren\u2019t plans for what other businesses could open at the site.

A public hearing will be held at the Tuesday Plan and Zoning meeting. Rusnak expects a vote July 2, and then a recommendation could be made to the city council.

A Davenport felon was arrested Wednesday night in connection with two shootings, a high-speed car chase while his children were inside the vehicle, and other offenses.

Davenport Police Maj. Jeff Bladel called the arrest of Devario Dewayne Talley, 28, \u201csignificant,\u201d adding there has been \u201cincident after incident that we\u2019ve been close to grabbing him but he\u2019s been very elusive.\u201d

Talley faces charges in connection with six cases in Scott County District Court:

At 6:20 a.m. Jan. 28, police were dispatched to the 100 block of North Division Street for a disturbance and a shooting.

Witnesses said Talley fired a gun multiple times at his brother, according to police. At least one of the shots struck the man in the leg, according to police.

Talley was convicted of a felony in January 2012 and is prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm.

At 5:27 p.m. March 27, police were called to the Talbot Memorial (Centennial) Bridge area for a wanted person who had fled from Rock Island Police in a gold 2003 Chevrolet Suburban.

The vehicle, which was driving south in an alley at 1420 N. Harrison St., fled from officers. Three children ages 11, 6, and 1 were inside the vehicle at the time.

Talley, the children's father, was observed driving the vehicle. Police say he continued the high-speed chase and reached speeds of more than 60 mph, and more than 25 mph over the posted speed limit. He also drove at high speeds in the wrong direction into oncoming traffic.

Talley eventually stopped the vehicle and fled. A search of it found .6 grams of marijuana, according to police.

A second man, Queshan Terrell Harris, 22, was charged with eluding, two counts of child endangerment and possession of marijuana, in connection with the case. He remained in the Scott County Jail Thursday.

At 10:22 p.m. May 16, officers were called to the 1200 block of East 35th Street for a disturbance. Police say Talley had an argument with someone and discharged one round from a firearm at a vehicle the alleged victim was driving.

The round became embedded in the rear seat of the vehicle, according to police.

At 5:25 p.m. May 21, police were called to the 3800 block of Spring Street for an assault. Police say Talley struck a woman multiple times in the face and head with his fists and then threw her to the ground.

At 11:51 a.m. May 24, police searched a home in the 300 block of East 7th Street that Talley is associated with and found approximately 6.7 kilograms of high-grade marijuana; 4.9 grams of crack cocaine; 3.9 grams of powder cocaine; 237 dosage units of ecstasy in three separate plastic bags and 8.3 grams of powder ecstasy. Police also found a vacuum sealer machine, scales and packaging materials.

None of the drugs has a drug tax stamp affixed to it. Talley was not present when the home was searched.

On Wednesday, Davenport police learned Talley was driving a silver Chevy Impala in the 7100 block of Hillandale Road.

Officers got behind it as it drove south on Northwest Boulevard. Before officers could pull the car over, the Impala hit a curb and crashed.

Talley fled and was arrested after a short foot chase. He was in possession of a Taurus .380-caliber handgun.

Bond in the felony cases was set Thursday at $115,000 cash-only. He has a preliminary hearing June 22.\u00a0

According to court records, Judge Mark Fowler found Talley in contempt and sentenced him to 60 days in the Scott County Jail for repeatedly using \"foul language\" and being disruptive.

Police are continuing to investigate what appears to be a bizarre coincidence \u2014 discovering the body of a young man just a block from a shooting scene.

A Moline police officer heard shots being fired around 2:30 a.m. Monday in the 2400 block of 16th Street. The officer saw two vehicles fleeing the area and gave chase, police said.

\"... the vehicle did not stop, increasing its speed as we pursued the vehicle,\" according to a news release by Moline police. \"The vehicle then turned off its lights and was traveling at speeds in excess of 100 mph.\"

Given the dangers associated with the chase, police said, they discontinued the pursuit.

However, Davenport police engaged in a pursuit of a vehicle just minutes after the shots were fired in Moline, and police confirm the chases were related. The Davenport pursuit ended when the suspect vehicle headed back into Illinois via Interstate 280.

Meanwhile, Davenport police responded shortly before 3 a.m. to a report of a gunshot victim at Genesis Medical Center-East Rusholme Street. The man sustained a gunshot wound to the shoulder, which police said was not life-threatening.

Confirmation is pending on whether the Moline shooting and the Genesis shooting victim are related.

Police working the shooting scene in Moline discovered a vehicle with several bullet holes in the parking lot of The Belgrade, the tavern that neighbors Teske's at 2431 16th St.

Within a few hours of the shots-fired incident, Moline police were called back to the neighborhood \u2014 one block south of the Belgrade. Police discovered the body of Taylor Kirklin, 23, of Moline.

Rock Island County Coroner Brian Gustafson said 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.

Gustafson later said Kirkland apparently died of an overdose.\u00a0

Asked whether police are certain, given the absence of gunshot wounds to the body, that the incidents are unrelated, Moline Police Detective Michael Griffin responded, \"We don't believe it is (related) but are certainly doing everything to make sure they are separate incidents.\"

Police are looking at surveillance video from the Belgrade and surrounding areas for possible clues. The tavern contains video poker machines, which require on-premises security cameras.

\"Any time we can get video surveillance of suspects or an actual incident, it certainly helps us piece together crimes,\" Griffin wrote in an email Monday.

Moline Police ask anyone with information about the shots-fired incident, the vehicle pursuits or the deceased to call Moline Police Criminal Investigations at 309-524-2140 or Crime Stoppers of the Quad Cities at 309-762-9500.

Davenport Police ask anyone with information regarding the vehicle pursuit and/or the apparent shooting to call 563-326-6125 or submit an anonymous tip via the mobile app \u201cCityConnect Davenport, IA\u201d or \u201cCrimeReports by Motorola.\u201d

Five people were injured Thursday night in a two-vehicle crash just east of Eldridge.

At 5:50 p.m., the Scott Emergency Communication Center received a 911 call about a crash at the intersection of 210th Avenue and 240th Street.

The Scott County Sheriff\u2019s Office Accident Investigation Team responded to the scene.

The initial investigation found that a 2014 Toyota Avalon driven by a 61-year-old Princeton woman was traveling westbound on 240th St., according to the sheriff's office.\u00a0

The second vehicle, a 2011 Toyota Sienna driven by a 44-year-old Bettendorf man, was traveling northbound on 210th Avenue, according to the sheriff's office.\u00a0

The intersection has stop signs for traffic traveling north and southbound, but not east and westbound.

Deputies determined that the Toyota Sienna failed to yield the right of way to the Toyota Avalon, causing a \u201ct-bone\u201d type collision, according to the sheriff's office.\u00a0

The driver of the Avalon and a 7-year-old girl in the vehicle also were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the sheriff's office.\u00a0

An 81-year-old woman in the back seat of the Avalon suffered serious injuries and was transported to University Hospitals, Iowa City, where she remains in critical condition, according to the sheriff's office.\u00a0

The accident remains under investigation by the Scott County Accident Investigation Team.
