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.\"

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.

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

Emergency personnel search for the body of a 5-year-old girl Tuesday on the Rock River near the Steel Dam in Milan. An Illinois Conservation Police boat used sonar to take underwater images near the dam.

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.

An attraction at West Lake Park is muddying the waters.

On the boathouse dock at Lake of the Hills, just west of Interstate 280 in Davenport, children enjoy feeding giant grass carp with fish food from a vending machine. It costs 25 cents a handful.

\u201cThey\u2019re trained,\u201d Scott County Conservation Board Deputy Director Marc Miller said of the Asian carp species stocked almost 40 years ago to control aquatic vegetation. But the fish, two of which staff nicknamed popcorn and nacho, keep unwanted sediment and phosphorus suspended in the water, fueling algae growth and lowering the lake\u2019s clarity. \u201cIt\u2019s like having a mixer on all the time,\u201d Miller said. \u201cThey keep it circulating.\u201d

These issues landed the 54-acre Lake of the Hills, the biggest and busiest body of water at West Lake Park, on the Iowa Department of Natural Resources\u2019 Impaired Waters List.

\u201cIt means our water\u2019s not very good,\u201d Miller said. \u201cIt\u2019s safe to swim in, but it could be better.\u201d

In an effort to improve water quality and recreation at West Lake Park, Scott County and the DNR are teaming up on a major $3 million-plus restoration project.

Within the next few years, Lake of the Hills, plus the three lakes around it, will be drained to scoop out the buildup of sediment with heavy mechanical dredging equipment.

Blue Grass, Railroad and Lambach lakes originally were designed to serve as retention ponds to protect Lake of the Hills. They did their duty, but erosion eventually won, carrying runoff into the water.

\u201cThey\u2019re old,\u201d Miller said of the chain of man-made lakes built with a 35-year life expectancy almost 50 years ago.

Although they will miss anglers, paddlers and swimmers during the dry spell, \u201cIt\u2019s something we need to do, and once we do it, it will last for another 40 to 50 years,\u201d he added. \u201cIt\u2019s going to be great for the community and great for the environment.\u201d

Splitting the costs

Work is slated to begin this fall with the addition of eight or nine new retention ponds to the 1,680-plus acre watershed that encompasses West Lake Park. Existing fixtures will be rehabilitated, too.

The county will cover 25 percent of the costs and the state will pay for the remaining 75 percent with funding secured through Iowa\u2019s Lake Restoration Program. Since its inception in 2006, legislators have appropriated about $100 million for water quality improvement projects across the state, 22 of which are complete, said George Antoniou, program coordinator for the DNR.

West Lake Park is one of 19 active projects across the state, and there are 16 others in the initial planning stage. The program currently receives $9.6 million each year.

Scott County and the DNR began discussions about West Lake Park in 2014, Miller said. Last year, they hired FYRA Engineering of Omaha, Nebraska, for $43,369 to develop conceptual designs and cost estimates for the project.

Boathouse clerk Morgan Caves, 16, pushes off lifeguard Emily Monroe, 17, to kayak this week at West Lake Park in Davenport.

Representatives from all three entities are hosting a public meeting Thursday in Blue Grass.

\u201cWhen you\u2019ve worked with a community for a long time, this is the fun part, when we get to start building things,\u201d Antoniou said.

Although an official construction timeline has not been released, they plan to begin lowering water levels in August 2019. The job also calls for stabilizing shrinking shorelines, improving fish habitat and updating the lakes' outlet infrastructure.\u00a0

Users of the park\u2019s challenging 24-hole disc golf course may be the only regulars not disappointed by the temporary loss of water, or hazards, in their case, which apparently drown a lot of discs.

\u201cI would expect we will find a number of them,\u201d Miller said, noting regional and national disc golf tournaments are held at the park. \u201cAnd I expect a number of the public will be hanging out in select locations as the lake is draining.\u201d

Last weekend, the 620-acre park hosted the Quad-Cities Triathlon, and twice each year, the DNR loads Lake of the Hills with 2,000 rainbow trout to support area anglers. More than half a million people, including thousands of campers, visit the park on an annual basis.

'The best place ever'

Even on a \u201cslow\u201d day, shaded by scattered clouds and showers, West Lake Park sees a lot of action.

Visitors celebrated the official start to summer on Thursday by picnicking, fishing and paddling around Lake of the Hills.

\u201cRight here\u2019s, like, the best place ever to catch fish,\u201d 6-year-old Colton Tindle said, casting from a fishing pier on the northeast side of the lake.

Twice this week, mother Megan Richmond brought Colton and her other children to the park from Wilton, Iowa, about a 30-minute drive. \u201cYou could spend a whole day here doing different stuff,\u201d shes said.

On the sandy shore around the bend, Scott County naturalist Dave Murcia led four boathouse employees through a basic introduction to kayaking while a visitor toured Lake of the Hills on a stand-up paddleboard.

Guests may rent kayaks, paddle boats and fishing boats from the park\u2019s boathouse, which was built in 2005 and includes changing rooms, showers and a concession stand.

Part of the planning process for this project is figuring out how to draw crowds back to West Lake Park when the work is done, the lakes fill up with rainwater and the fishery is restocked.

\u201cWe can\u2019t accurately predict weather, so say we don\u2019t open in 2020,\u201d Miller said. \u201cOur clients will find somewhere else to go.\u201d

In the meantime, he is open to suggestions.

A 76-year-old Davenport man was arrested early Wednesday after police say he stabbed his son in the chest with a knife late Tuesday night.

Leo J. Condon faces charges of willful injury causing serious injury, a Class C felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison, and domestic abuse assault display or use a weapon, an aggravated misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison.

Davenport police were called around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday to the 500 block of Cedar Street, where Condon and his 53-year-old son live.

Police say Condon stabbed his son in the chest with a straight blade knife, which caused life-threatening injuries that required emergency surgery.

Condon's son was taken to Genesis Medical Center-East Rusholme Street, Davenport.\u00a0

Bond was set Wednesday at $50,000 cash or surety. He has a preliminary hearing June 29.

Condon had a knife when officers arrived at the home, according to police.

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
