URBANDALE \u2014 U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst sharpened her stance on special counsel Robert Mueller\u2019s investigation of the Trump administration, telling a conservative group Wednesday it\u2019s time for Democrats to \u201cmove on.\u201d

Ernst, a first-term Republican and member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told members of the Westside Conservative Club that the report has been made public and there is no evidence of collusion or need for further investigation.

\u201cThe Mueller report came back with absolutely zero, zero evidence of collusion with Russia from the Trump campaign. Zero evidence of that, so this really needs to stop,\u201d she said. \u201cThe report is there. We can read the report. It proves absolutely nothing, but the Democrats want to keep going and keep going. No more investigations. No \u2018Let\u2019s call Mueller in, let\u2019s have him in front.\u2019 I don\u2019t think it\u2019s necessary, folks. We have the report. It\u2019s exactly what they wanted, the problem is it doesn\u2019t say what they wanted it to say. So I think it\u2019s time that we move on from this.\u201d

A redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller\u2019s report was made public last week, and a less-redacted version was delivered to Congress.

Ernst said the Democrats \u201cwere hounding\u201d for the special prosecutor\u2019s investigation and he did his job. Now, the Red Oak Republican said, \u201cThey keep making demands. We keep meeting those demands but we\u2019re at a point now, no more demands, folks.\u201d

Ernst, 48, who has raised $2.8 million for her 2020 re-election campaign, said she expects a \u201ccontentious\u201d election with both her crucial Senate seat and President Donald Trump on the ballot in Iowa. Ernst defeated Democrat Bruce Braley by 8.5 percent in 2014 to become Iowa\u2019s first female U.S. senator and the first female military veteran in the chamber\u2019s history. She plans to use her annual \u201cRoast and Ride\u201d fundraiser on June 15 to formally launch her reelection bid.

The general election is Nov. 3, 2020.

The River Music Experience on Tuesday named Tyson Danner its new executive director. The nonprofit organization, which will celebrate its 15th\u00a0anniversary this summer, has provided educational programs and concerts at 129 Main St. since 2004.

\"Through my years as a participant in school music programs, a private vocal coach, a pianist, a choir director and a music director for various local theater groups, I have witnessed the life-changing power of music firsthand,\" Danner, 34, said in a Tuesday release from RME. \u201cI'm honored to lead an organization that reaches so many people with the power of music.\"

Since September, he has acted as RME's interim executive director through a partnership with Quad City Arts, where he's been community arts director since 2016. Previously, he was theater coordinator at Davenport Junior Theatre. He also brings nonprofit executive leadership experience to the role, having served as founder and artistic director of the QC Theatre Workshop from 2012 to 2018.

Danner will continue to direct Quad City Arts community art programs through the summer.

\u201cOur partnership with Quad City Arts proved to be the perfect transition,\" said Tracy Schwind, longtime RME board member and current chair. \"Tyson led us through a great strategic planning process, which has resulted in exciting growth. I am very pleased with the momentum we have as an organization, and I'm happy that Tyson will continue to move us forward as our executive director.\u201d

\u201cTyson's collaborative leadership and visionary outlook are a perfect fit for\u00a0moving the organization into the future,\u201d said Rene Gellerman, RME vice chair and president/CEO of United Way of the Quad Cities.

\u201cTyson sees the RME as a community connector and collaborator. Whether it's identifying ways we can\u00a0support the local music sector, be a good\u00a0ally in the\u00a0region's growing music scene, or expanding partnerships that will result in more Quad-Cities kids getting unique music education experiences, Tyson keeps people,\u00a0impact and mission top of mind.\"

In September 2018, Danner was named interim executive director of RME, a position he expected to hold through June. He continued to be a member of the staff at Quad City Arts, but was on loan full time to RME.

Carmen Darland, former CEO of Quad City Arts, retired in December after leading that organization for 10 years. He was succeeded by Kevin Maynard, a Geneseo native and former executive director of Galesburg\u2019s Orpheum Theatre.

The RME board asked her and Danner last summer to analyze RME's status and recommend options for the future, since former CEO Deb Sandry-Powers left in May 2018 after four years to pursue other career opportunities.

Rather than having an open search, the board decided \u201cbased on the fact the past six months have gone so well, it seemed like a good fit,\" and offfered the position to Danner, he said Tuesday.

Quad City Arts will fill the community arts job, which includes overseeing the Metro Arts summer apprenticeship program, by the end of the summer, he said.

The RME will conduct a fundraising campaign April 26-May 10 to support its educational outreach programs. It plans to raise $15,000 in 15 days. Each day on its website and social media channels, the organization will tell a story about the impact and outcomes of its programs.

The campaign will support the following programs:

The RME has seen expansion of its programs in recent years, according to the release, noting this year it will reach more than 22,000 people with educational programming, host over 100 concerts for more than 10,000 adults and youths, and create over $1 million of local economic impact.

Ira Dunsworth made his Drake Relays debut in 1950 as a 15-year-old sophomore at what was then Davenport High.\u00a0

The combination of a cinder track and about 3 to 4 inches of snow resulted in sloppy conditions for Dunsworth and his teammates in the two-mile relay.\u00a0

\"It was a quagmire by the time we ran in the afternoon,\" Dunsworth said. \"I never ate so many cinders in my life.\"

During the past seven decades, the Quad-City Sports Hall of Famer has seen every condition imaginable at America's Athletic Classic\u00a0\u2014 cold, rain, sleet, snow and sunshine.

Regardless, the 84-year-old Dunsworth keeps coming back.\u00a0

This weekend marks his 70th consecutive year at the Drake Relays.\u00a0

He ran at the state's premier track and field meet three years in high school for Davenport High and in college for the University of Iowa. He was a spectator his first year at Iowa because true freshmen weren't eligible for competition.

As a coach, he brought Davenport Central's program here for more than three decades. He was on the Drake Relays high school jury of appeals for 26 years. And since 2004, he has served as the high school boys meet referee.\u00a0

\"It has been unreal to be a part of this for that long,\" Dunsworth said. \"It has been a nice ride and a lot of fun. You feel privileged to be able to do it.

\"It has been a great situation because I get to see all the kids, specifically the local kids and get to come over and congratulate them.\"

Dunsworth has stored away a multitude of memories.

He remembers seeing Parry O'Brien shatter his own world record in the shot put in 1954.

In a torrential downpour, he saw a 19-year-old Dave Sime hand Abilene Christian's Bobby Morrow his first loss in more than 30 100-yard dash races with a time of 9.4 seconds in 1956. Morrow won three Olympic gold medals later that year.

He witnessed brothers Curtis and Marvin Mills leading Texas A&M to a world record in the 880 relay out of Lane 8 in 1970.\u00a0

He recalls watching nine-time Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis run here in the snow ... and win.\u00a0

\"There have been so many great athletes and teams come through here,\" he said, \"and it just continues to get bigger and bigger.

\"They started bringing in the elite athletes and the high schools started adding more events. It really has taken off.\"

Sponsorship has ballooned. The stadium has undergone a major facelift. The old cinder track has gave way to a Mondo Super X surface, the same used in the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.\u00a0

There are 34 events in the high school division (17 each for boys and girls). When Dunsworth came here in 1950, there were 12 events -- none for girls.

Dunsworth didn't medal in his first year as a competitor at Drake, but he anchored the mile and two-mile relays to second-place finishes as a junior. Then in 1952, he anchored Davenport to victory in both of those relays.

\"That was a big thrill to win here my senior year,\" he said.

Dunsworth was on Iowa's victorious distance medley relay in 1956.

As a coach at Davenport Central, his athletes captured 35 Drake Relays titles and 20 runner-up finishes. The Blue Devils won the 400 relay at Drake four straight years, 1981-84.\u00a0

Dunsworth remains a fixture in track and field across the Q-C. Central has hosted an invitational for the past 23 years in his name.\u00a0

\"In my mind, he's an absolute legend,\" Central activities director Brian Ehlinger said, \"but his personality isn't like that at all. When he comes to a track meet, he's just one of the people there. He treats everybody exactly the same.

\"You wouldn't know how many state championships he's won being around him because he's humble beyond belief.\"

Dunsworth served more as an assistant starter at meets in Davenport last year. He's been in the press box as a spectator this spring.

\"When he was regularly starting meets, he was still coaching kids like he always did,\" Ehlinger said. \"It didn't matter the school. If he saw something, he'd pull a kid aside and start coaching him. He knows the sport inside and out.\"

Because of that, Dunsworth has formed a connection with many of the top-tier runners in the metro. When those participants make it to Drake, they've had a familiar face to greet them on the starting line.

\"I'd always tell the local ones, 'Do good now. Remember to represent eastern Iowa well,'\" he said. \"You just try to relax them a little bit. It is definitely a fun situation.\"

How long will Dunsworth's iron man streak last at Drake? His health will determine that, he said.\u00a0

\"It all depends on how I feel and what the weather is like,\" he said. \"Even if I'm not working, I can go as a spectator.\"

Rain is in the forecast for Thursday and Saturday. Still, it won't match what he encountered as a teenager in his first trip here.

\"The only thing not to like about the Drake Relays is the miserable weather,\" he said. \"There have been more nice days than bad days, but you definitely remember the bad ones.\"

Four people face charges after a Wednesday morning gun incident at Pinehill Cemetery in Davenport.

About 2:15 a.m. police were called to 1530 E. 39th St. (Pinehill Cemetery), after a report of a police officer hearing a single gunshot in the vicinity.

Officers arrived within one minute and blocked the entrance to the cemetery and did not observe any vehicles leaving the area, according to court documents.

One officer observed\u00a0Lmykalah R. Cooke, Aliyah Teyanna Dantzler, Kyneisha Shanell Robinson, and Darvion Jawar Lard, all of Davenport, at the north end of the cemetery get into a parked car, drive northbound around a roundabout and back south, the affidavits stated.

The officer then stopped and detained the suspects.

Officers located a live round in the grass where the officer first observed the suspects, then located a silver \"Star\" pistol in the grass along side the roundabout.

The firearm had a spent casing lodged inside the gun preventing it from firing a second time. The round was the same .380 caliber as the pistol.

Police say the suspects possessed the loaded gun within city limits and they did not have a valid permit to carry.

Charged were:

Lmykalah R. Cooke, 20, of 6208 Appomatox Road, with carrying a weapon and reckless use of a firearm.

Aliyah Teyanna Dantzler, 24, of 1530 N. Ripley St., Apt. 1,\u00a0 with carrying a weapon, possession of a controlled substance and reckless use of a firearm.

Kyneisha Shanell Robinson, 23, of 2312 W. 60th Place, with carrying a weapon and reckless use of a firearm.

Darvion Jawar Lard, 19, of 1916 W. 76th Place, with carrying a weapon and reckless use of a firearm.

Vanessa Woelfel, says her family \"bleeds red and blue\" but her daughter had to leave a disruptive Davenport classroom and a district that failed to address the problems.

Woelfel was one of two parents who spoke to the Davenport School Board about their requests to open enroll their children in other districts. During the meeting, the school board denied 13 students from 10 families the ability to open enroll outside the district, citing its diversity plan.

\u201cWe have wanted Addison to go through Davenport schools \u2014 my entire family bleeds red and blue \u2014 but I will not allow her academics and personal growth to be hurt because of what was happening in the schools,\u201d said Woelfel, a Davenport graduate who said generations of her family went to Davenport. \u201cDavenport Community Schools failed to provide my daughter a safe, happy, calm learning environment.\u201d

Woelfel said her daughter\u2019s principal wouldn\u2019t let her out of a \u201cdisruptive\u201d classroom, and former Superintendent Art Tate would not allow a transfer to another elementary school within the district. Tate said she\u2019d meet with Associate Superintendent Bill Schneden, Woelfel said, but the meeting never occurred. The family ultimately transferred Addison to a private school and was seeking a waiver to enroll her in a Bettendorf school.

\u201cIt wasn\u2019t just one event, it was multiple things happening in the classroom that weren\u2019t addressed: disruptions, interruptions, kids screaming on the floor, on the tables,\u201d Woelfel said.

Parent Jason Smith said he wanted to open enroll his children in Bettendorf because one wasn\u2019t receiving the reading intervention services he deemed necessary.

\u201cWe need a school that has adequate resources so that he does not continue to fall behind,\u201d he said.\u00a0

Davenport is one of five Iowa districts with a diversity plan, created to maintain the balance between students from lower- and higher-income families. The goal is to attempt to grant approvals for students on free or reduced lunch, or who get fee waivers, with the same number of similar applications to enter the district.

The administration\u2019s recommendation to deny the appeals was unanimously approved by the board; Director Clyde Mayfield was not present to vote, and Director Allison Beck abstained because she knew two of the families personally. But some showed hesitation.

\u201cI personally feel as parents, we know what\u2019s best for our children, and we should have the right to send them anywhere. Unfortunately, we have to deny, due to not meeting the criteria laid out in our policy,\u201d said Vice President Linda Hayes.

Director Julie DeSalvo hesitated when called to vote, but denied the requests.

\u201cAfter having read all of these letters, I\u2019d hope that administration would take some of these comments and talk to these families,\u201d DeSalvo said. \u201c\u2026 We heard from several parents tonight that follow-up was not presented as should have been.\u201d

\u201cIt\u2019s clear that parents requested assistance and didn\u2019t get it, and I hope we never have to hear that again,\" Beck said.

Seven of the 10 families requested a move to Bettendorf; one to North Scott, and two to Iowa Virtual Academy.

In 2018, a bill in the Iowa Legislature would have eliminated diversity as grounds for denying open enrollment requests. It failed to advance.

Davenport denied 109 requests to leave the district in 2018, all based on the diversity plan; 16 requests were approved.

\"The Curse of La Llorona\"

This is part of the \u201cThe Conjuring\u201d universe, which has ranged from less-than-stellar to smart and fascinating.

La llorona, \u201cthe crying woman,\u201d is the ghost of a mother who drowned her children hundreds of years ago in an act of revenge. The ghost of the woman, horrified by what she did, now tries to steal other people\u2019s children.

Anna Tate-Garcia (Linda Cardellini, on a neighboring screen in \u201cAvengers: Endgame\u201d) is a social worker whose husband recently has died, leaving her with two children to raise.

At the beginning of the story, Anna discovers two children behind a door with strange markings \u2013 a door the kids\u2019 mother begs her not to open.

Anna sees terrible burn marks on the children, who are terrified and reluctant to talk with her. She thinks they are afraid of their abusive mother.

After tragedy ensues, Anna\u2019s children become haunted by the specter. Although Anna knows about the legend, she still cannot believe what she has been told until she must face the fact her children\u2019s lives and her own are at stake.

Not much about the story in general will surprise you, but will enjoy a few scare moments, including an incredibly effective sequence involving an umbrella that\u2019s worth a few shudders and another set in a parked car. This has some really cool visuals.

I\u2019ve always enjoyed Cardellini, a versatile actress who is really good here at being a terrified mother who doesn\u2019t want to believe what\u2019s right in front of her. Also convincing are the children, who really make the viewer believe they\u2019re in the midst of something frightening: Watch their reactions when the ghost appears.

It\u2019s cool to see Father Perez (Tony Amendola) again, and Raymond Cruz (recognizable from television\u2019s \u201cBreaking Bad\u201d) is on hand as a one-time priest who uses \u201cunorthodox methods\u201d to deal with the paranormal.

The finale really devolves into the standard horror fare. This franchise, which can branch off into so many different incarnations, if you will, is far from over \u2013 you can hear the crying woman weeping at the end of the credits.

As long as people continue to embrace \u201cThe Conjuring\u201d spinoffs, the franchise will stay alive. Something tells me La Llorono will make at least one more appearance on the big screen.

Porter, a state runner-up in the event last year, ran 48.51 in his only open 400 this season at the Deac Ryan Relays in Eldridge. This will be the first year Porter has run in an individual event at Drake. He's also among the top five seeds in the 100.

King, a Class 3A state champion in the quarter-mile last May, posted a state-best time of 56.39 at the Assumption Invitational earlier this month. She won the 400 at the Kansas Relays last Saturday.

Muscatine sophomore Noah Yahn also is in the boys 400 field.\u00a0

Tough luck for Nichols

Pleasant Valley's Kent Nichols has the 20th fastest time in the state this spring in the 3,200 at 9 minutes, 44.65 seconds.

Still, Nichols wasn't accepted as one of the 21 entrants for Thursday evening's two-mile race at Drake Stadium.

A recent rule change by the Drake Relays committee allows one school a maximum of three participants per event. Parker Huhn (9:34.55), Max Murphy (9:34.71) and Kole Sommer (9:43.66) ran faster times and will represent PV.

Nichols was an all-stater (top 15) in cross country last fall.

PV coach Erik Belby said the school had four participants qualify and run the mile at the 2008 Drake Relays. He reached out to the Iowa High School Athletic Association and Drake Relays, but they refused to budge on the rule.

Among the 22 individual high school events (11 girls, 11 boys), the boys 3,200 was the only one where a school had more than three competitors above the cutoff mark.

Small-school flavor

Other than the 400 relay which has 96 teams this season, the majority of high school events at the Drake Relays are comprised of individuals and relays from Class 3A and 4A programs.

Still, there are several 1A and 2A schools in the Quad-Cities area represented quite well this weekend.

On the boys side, Calamus-Wheatland is entered in two events -- Ray Venditti (100 meters) and the 1,600 medley relay. Austin McMichael qualified in the 110 hurdles and will be part of West Liberty's shuttle hurdle relay team. Northeast is led by high jumper Braeden Hoyer.

Tipton's Andrew Stewart is in the high jump, Wapello's T.J. Dirth will throw the discus and North Cedar's Caden Wendt qualified in the shot put.

For the girls, Northeast qualified in four events -- Ellie Rickertsen (100 hurdles and 400 hurdles), Claire Abbot (shot put) and the 400 relay.

Tipton's Jamie Kofron is back to defend her discus and shot put titles. West Liberty's Macy Daufeldt is in the long jump field, Bellevue's Shayla Oster throws the discus and North Cedar's Kelly Proesch qualified in the 100 hurdles.

Relay success

The Q-C will not have a girl running in the 800, 1,500 or 3,000 this weekend, but the area has plenty of firepower in the relays.\u00a0

Davenport Assumption and Pleasant Valley have multiple relays seeded in the top eight. Assumption enters with the top time in the sprint medley and 800 relays. PV is qualified in all six relays, including second in the 800 relay and third in the 400 relay.\u00a0

On the boys side, Bettendorf's 400, 800 and 1,600 relays are seeded among the top three. The Bulldogs will have to run without Porter on one of those relays as he's allowed only four events and is slated to run the 100 and 400.\u00a0

PV comes in with the top seed in the 3,200 relay in 8:04.14.\u00a0

The Q-C area didn't win any of the 12 relays (six boys, six girls) last year.\u00a0

College scene

There will be numerous former Q-C high school standouts competing this weekend in the college/university division.

Former Rock Island sprinter Courtney Lindsey is scheduled to run the 100 and 200 for Iowa Central Community College. Teammate Olivier Soglohun (United Township) is in the triple jump.\u00a0

The University of Iowa has a strong contingent of former Q-C preps -- Mallory King (Assumption), Kelli DeGeorge, Carly Donahue and Addie Swanson (PV), Erika Hammond (Clinton), Tyler Olson (Muscatine), Tanner Iske (West Liberty), Cole Moeller (Cal-Wheat), Konnor and Karson Sommer (PV).

Former Geneseo star Erika Furbeck is slated to be in the long jump for Iowa State. North Scott alum and Northern Iowa sophomore Erica Loussaert is expected to be in Wednesday and Thursday's heptathlon. Moline's Darius King is in the javelin and shot put for UNI.

St. Ambrose and Augustana have runners scheduled to participate, too.\u00a0

Iowa has completed its 2022 football schedule, adding a home nonconference game against a Nevada team currently coached by former Hawkeye Jay Norvell.

The Wolfpack will visit Kinnick Stadium on Sept. 17, 2022, the first-ever meeting between the two programs.

Iowa opens its Big Ten schedule the following week at Minnesota after opening the season with three nonconference home games. The Hawkeyes host South Dakota State on Sept. 3 in the season opener and play Iowa State at Kinnick Stadium on Sept. 10 before hosting Nevada.

Norvell earned first team all-Big Ten honors as a defensive back at Iowa in 1985, when he was named the team\u2019s co-most valuable player after leading the Big Ten with seven interceptions on a team which shared the Big Ten title and represented the conference in the Rose Bowl.

After an NFL career, Norvell began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Iowa. His resume includes working as a collegiate assistant at Northern Iowa, Wisconsin, Iowa State, Nebraska, UCLA, Oklahoma, Texas and Arizona State and in the NFL with Indianapolis and Oakland.

He was named Nevada\u2019s head coach in 2017 and has led the Wolfpack to an 11-14 record over the past two seasons, including an 8-5 record last season which concluded with a bowl win over Arizona.

The Hawkeyes\u2019 schedule in 2022 also includes home games against Michigan and Northwestern in October before concluding with back-to-back home dates against Wisconsin and Nebraska in November.

In addition to Minnesota, Iowa visits Purdue, Ohio State, Rutgers and Illinois in 2022.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) \u2014 A docked replica of a Christopher Columbus ship that sank in 2017 days after Hurricane Harvey struck Texas has swamped again.

Officials say divers will examine La Nina at the Corpus Christi Marina before efforts begin to refloat the ship that sank Tuesday.

The\u00a0La Nina and Pinta ships made Quad-Cities stops on the Mississippi River in 2016, 2013 and 2010.

La Nina, although in disrepair, has been a tourist attraction. The 75-foot (22.86-meter) ship sank in August 2017 after Harvey, but was repaired and refloated.

The volunteer Columbus Sailing Association said it could no longer maintain the ship after Harvey. Corpus Christi leaders are also trying to find someone to restore the replica built by Spain in the 1980s to mark the 500th anniversary of the Columbus voyage to the New World.

Association president Kim Mrazek said Tuesday that donations have funded prior La Nina repairs.

You warily fight through a punishing world in the newest game from\u00a0\"Dark Souls\"\u00a0developer FromSoftware, \"Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.\" Even the lowliest enemies can kill you in a few swift hits, and death costs you the progress you made to that point. Checkpoints offer repose and replenishment, but they often lie behind a boss who will slice your guts into ribbons before you can land a blow.

So, you might wonder, how is \"Sekiro\"\u00a0any\u00a0different from \"Dark Souls\"?

For all that FromSoftware's new brutally difficult action game has in common with its\u00a0previous\u00a0five brutally difficult action games, \"Sekiro\" marks a significant and successful departure for the developer. That's mostly because, throughout the game, it manipulates the degree of freedom you have to determine how you engage its formidable enemies. In \"Souls\" games, as well as\u00a0\"Bloodborne,\"\u00a0you approached almost every one of those enemies head-on, teeth grit. But you approached them with a blank canvas: sword or staff, armor or cloth, strength or speed.

\"Sekiro,\" however, widens the first of those freedoms and narrows the second.

With stealth resources like vegetation that masks your presence, as well as the ability to jump and grapple to rooftops and random tree branches, your titular shinobi protagonist can dispatch whole garrisons before a single sword of theirs is drawn. He can even knock down half the health of some bosses with a backstab. And as its platforming goes, FromSoftware gets outright generous: Sekiro's feet softly fasten to surfaces, so stepping against edges no longer means tumbling into one of the game's many mountain abysses. Nor do falls cost you your life, just a fraction of health.

But when enemies spot Sekiro, and when he has to duel away the remaining health of those bosses, the game makes you fight the same way every other player does. There are skills and auxiliary weapons to acquire, but their use is limited and they don't make nearly as much of a difference as, say, magic spells or daggers. The auxiliary weapons, fitted onto Sekiro's prosthetic arm, actually function more like puzzle inputs than equalizers. Also, in a change that some FromSoftware players may find particularly jarring, you can't summon others to fight at your side, either.

So it's one sword, one Sekiro.

Of course, not every enemy he faces is the same. It's a game set in 16th century feudal Japan, so many of them are bandits and samurai. But it's also a game made by FromSoftware, so the humans are joined by overgrown beasts and spectral head-scratchers. And if you follow the conversation about \"Sekiro\" \u2014 the conversation that\u00a0doesn't\u00a0devolve into whining that an easy mode would ruin the game, that is \u2014 you'll see little consensus on the relative difficulty of those enemies. I beat one of the most fussed-over bosses on my first try. And yet I died time after time to others thought easy.

That lack of consensus shows how uniquely each player experiences \"Sekiro.\" But, unlike \"Dark Souls\" or \"Bloodborne,\" the experience isn't made unique by weapons to select or stats to level up. It's made unique strictly by what\u00a0we\u00a0bring to the game, to those enemies. It's made unique by our adaptivity, our reflexes, our attention to detail and our willingness to endure. I wonder whether some algorithm, were it fed the data on our every death, could map those traits like a Myers-Briggs test. At the very least, maybe it could explain why I struggle against enemies with spears so much.

Sure, the way we play other games, and particularly FromSoftware's, tell us about, well, us. Through the choices we make and the emotions we feel, we have an active hand in shaping\u00a0every\u00a0game experience. But there's something about \"Sekiro\" that penetrates deeper. And it emerges from the razor-thin space between the game's strategic rigidity and its maddening difficulty.

(Is \"Sekiro\" really the\u00a0hardest\u00a0FromSoftware game, as some have declared? Maybe. It certainly killed me more times than \"Dark Souls,\" its sequels or \"Bloodborne.\" But who knows.)

In my case, it was the endgame of \"Sekiro\" that provoked \u2014 at the risk of being melodramatic and dropping a bad pun \u2014 some\u00a0soul-searching.

The game's last two bosses, one optional and one not, broke me, frankly. One's a flailing demon that'd be more at home in \"Bloodborne,\" the other's the most legendary swordsman in \"Sekiro\" lore. And both have far more health to whittle down than any enemy I had previously encountered in the game. So it wasn't just the prospect of chipping away at those two bosses who could wipe me out in one swipe that led me to\u00a0say, last week, that I would probably never defeat them. It was the prospect of fighting them for\u00a0so\u00a0long, minutes that feel like months, in order to do so.

I had died and died again. Sometimes I died in a few discouraging seconds, sometimes I died after progressing further into the battle than ever before. Sometimes I just laughed and said \"f--k this,\" sometimes I punched the couch to vent the steam generated by my racing pulse. But I\u00a0knew I would beat those bosses eventually. Even when I said I wouldn't, I just\u00a0knew\u00a0I would.

I don't know how, precisely, I knew. But I had reached a point with each boss where I realized beating them was\u00a0possible. I had already begun to read their movements and hardwire my responses. I just had to accept that there was only one curved steel path through them \u2014 no backstabs, no leveling \u2014 and muster the will to walk it. I knew what I had to do, and that I was capable of doing it.

I just had to do it.

Resolved, I killed the demon first. But the swordsman took far longer. And it's fitting that he, the boss who most embodies the agony and the ecstasy of \"Sekiro,\" is its final one. (In most endings.)

That's because dueling that boss also embodies everything that sets \"Sekiro's\" combat apart from that of FromSoftware's previous games. Enemies have not only health, but also posture, which can be broken with steady strikes and well-timed parries long before their health depletes. And the end of either meter renders enemies vulnerable to deathblows. So the game is like \"Bloodborne\" in its priority on aggression, but between his deflecting strikes and specialized counters, Sekiro can be just as deadly on defense. And against the game's virtuosic final swordsman, he\u00a0has\u00a0to be.

So I sharpened myself to stand with the boss, to answer each of his attacks, to hold it together for 10 minutes. And the first 49 times I fought him, I was doubtful. But the 50th, the time I finally survived all four of his lethal phases and landed the executioner's blow, I was euphoric. It was as if all the despair of my failures was redirected into one exhilarating rush. It lasted for days.

It wasn't the first rush I felt playing \"Sekiro,\" to be sure. Several of its bosses may be less demanding, but plunging the shinobi's sword into their chests still delivers the thrill of hard-won triumph, the kind that prompts you to involuntarily raise your arms in the air. Often compounding that thrill is the new ability to resurrect. It's limited, so exhausting it adds yet another layer of tension.

And FromSoftware expertly crafts the game's world around those thrills. Sekiro journeys past thatched roofs, cherry blossoms and smoldering battlefields to save the Divine Heir, a boy whose blood gave the shinobi the power to resurrect, from a besieged castle. Unlike \"Bloodborne,\" the imagery is bright, sometimes beautiful. Unlike \"Dark Souls,\" the story makes sense, and moves forward.

Unlike either of those games, though, \"Sekiro\" asks you to look only inward to complete that journey.

A good Wednesday to all. We hit mid-week and are looking at some more rain. Here are the weather details from the National Weather Service.

1. Mostly cloudy today

\"NWS:
NWS: Summary

It will be mostly cloudy today with a high near 65 degrees and a low around 45 degrees.

Thursday brings a 40 percent chance of showers after 1 p.m. Skies will be partly sunny with a high near 70 degrees and a low around 44 degrees.

\"NWS:
NWS: Flooding

As of Tuesday night, the Mississippi River at Lock and Dam 15 is expected to crest at 20.6 feet some time Monday into Tuesday.

But that forecast could change as a storm system with the potential for a lot of rain moves into the U.S. 20 corridor north of the Quad-Cities over the weekend, said meteorologist Pete Speck of the National Weather Service, Davenport.

\u201cIt appears to have the potential to drop up to 1\u00bd inches of rain this weekend,\u201d Speck said Tuesday night.

That could send the Mississippi River higher, or prolong this second crest, depending on how much rain actually falls, he said.

The Mississippi River at Lock and Dam 15, Rock Island, crested at 20.68 feet on April 8. Flood stage there is 15 feet.

Speck said they are keeping an eye on the system that is expected to move in Friday night into Saturday to see how and where it sets up.

Speck said that as the weather forecasts become clearer in the models, the North Central River Forecast Center in Chanhassen, Minnesota, will calculate what rainfall is expected into the forecast for the Mississippi River.

\u201cThere is a lot of uncertainty right now,\u201d Speck said Tuesday night.

3. No dogs allowed\u00a0\u2014 State health code bans dogs from patios

\"042319-mda-nws-patiopets-02a.jpg\"

A handwritten sign on the window of Redband Coffee Co., in downtown Davenport, asks that patrons not bring pets into the store Monday. Pet-towing patrons are directed to a specialty walk-up window for orders.

Patio season is almost here. That means months of warm weather and clear skies at your favorite restaurants and bars. But your dog can\u2019t come. Blame state rules.

Both Illinois and Iowa have banned non-service animals from restaurants and bars. That includes outdoor eating areas, such as patios and beer gardens.

Unlike California and Florida \u2014 where municipalities or individual businesses can decide whether or not to allow pets into restaurants \u2014 Illinois and Iowa have statewide prohibitions.

Both states have adopted versions of the Food and Drug Administration\u2019s Food Code, which bans most animals from the premises of a business that serves food.

\u201cIt\u2019s a state code. We have to do what they say is their program,\u201d said Eric Bradley, environmental health coordinator at the Scott County Health Department, which enforces the state policy. Read more.

Patio season is almost here. That means months of warm weather and clear skies at your favorite restaurants and bars.

But your dog can\u2019t come.

Blame state rules.

Both Illinois and Iowa have banned non-service animals from restaurants and bars. That includes outdoor eating areas, such as patios and beer gardens.

Unlike California and Florida \u2014 where municipalities or individual businesses can decide whether or not to allow pets into restaurants \u2014 Illinois and Iowa have statewide prohibitions.

Both states have adopted versions of the Food and Drug Administration\u2019s Food Code, which bans most animals from the premises of a business that serves food.

\u201cIt\u2019s a state code. We have to do what they say is their program,\u201d said Eric Bradley, environmental health coordinator at the Scott County Health Department, which enforces the state policy.

In Illinois, a restaurant can petition the county or in some cases a municipality for a variance, according to local municipal officials and a spokesperson with the Illinois Department of Health. Businesses in Iowa can apply for a variance, or exemption, from the state government.

But local health officials said that few businesses in the Quad-Cities area have applied. When asked about the number of variances in the local area, public health officials on both sides of the river counted fewer than four.

\"The department is\u00a0open to the possibility of waiving the regulation concerning dogs on patios, provided the facility is willing to institute rules that provide equal protection\" for all patrons, said Stefanie Bond, public information officer at the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals.

The lack of applications might reflect ignorance of health code, or the red tape in obtaining a variance.

Ken Croken, a supervisor on the Scott County Board, called the requirements to obtain an exemption \u201coverly onerous.\u201d

\u201cI\u2019ve talked to a lot of restaurateurs who say that they\u2019d very much like to accommodate pets,\u201d Croken said. \u201cIt could be very good for business.\u201d

The no-pets rule has two exceptions. The first is service animals, which in general are not considered \u201cpets\u201d and are allowed into public places.

The second exception is the city of Chicago.

In Illinois, a state\u00a0law allows any municipality with a population of 1 million or more to legislate whether or not to allow dogs in outdoor areas of businesses where food is served. Chicago is the only municipality in Illinois with more than 1 million residents.

On both sides of the river, Quad-Citians said they want the policy to be made at the local level, not by state. An Iowa petition from 2017 to amend the health code received 1,230 signatures.

\u201cCounties are not at liberty to just pass a different law,\u201d Croken said. \u201cSince service animals are allowed in outdoor seatings and even inside the restaurant, it becomes a pointless exercise in overreaching government.\u201d

Many who live in the area have said that they enjoy seeing dogs on the grounds of local bars. Some local businesses have even admitted to allowing dogs on their patios, in violation of health code. Violators risk losing their license.

But Bradley said that the Scott County Health Department has received few complaints and has not penalized local businesses for infractions.

\u201cWe get calls now and then,\u201d he said. \u201cWe really haven\u2019t written anybody up for that, or given any citations. It\u2019s about education right now.\u201d

With a potential showdown for the Western Big 6 Conference title next week in Quincy looming, the Moline girls soccer team picked a good night to earn its first home win of the season in a 4-0 victory over Rock Island on Tuesday.

The win for Moline (5-5-2, 3-0-1 Big 6) kept things even with Quincy, which won 1-0 at Alleman.

Moline coach Jonathan Dreasler said a total effort from the team was needed to remedy a recent stretch of two straight losses, which was fed by a lack of challenging 50-50 balls.

\u201cThe football program\u2019s team slogan is 'total effort' and I said, there\u2019s a reason,\u201d Dreasler said. \u201cAnd for us to be successful and do what we need to do, we need to win every ball. We started to see what we\u2019re capable of tonight and hopefully we can build off that going into next week and at Quincy.\u201d

The Maroons\u2019 first goal of the night came when playing through a deflection by the RI (5-8, 1-3) keeper, which Arianna Raya finished for the goal in the third minute.

Dreasler said it was \u201cfantastic\u201d to see the effort to finish the junk ball for the opening goal, in what he called a good coaching moment.

Karima Rangel added a goal in the 28th minute off an assist from Caroline Hazen, who scored Moline\u2019s next goal after halftime in the 45th minute. Raya assisted Rangel in the 65th minute on the fourth goal for Moline, which outshot the Rocks 13-3 on goal.

Lauren Parker was keeper for Moline in the first half, and Morgan Hemmen finished the shutout at keeper in the second half.

Hazen said an effort to be more aggressive helped fuel the team\u2019s Tuesday success.

\u201cI think we really came out and did what we wanted to do,\u201d the freshman said. \u201cIt felt really good to finally get a win. We\u2019ve been in a slump for a while, so getting this win was really good for us.\u201d

Hazen shared Dreasler\u2019s opinion on effort equaling goals on the way to victory.

\u201cA lot of our goals just came off of us not giving up on any ball and going for every ball in the air,\u201d Hazen said. \u201cWe played really strong tonight.\u201d

Moline now has a shot at winning its first outright conference title since 2014. The Maroons shared the crown last season with Quincy and United Township. UT\u2019s only shot at another share rests on a win at Rocky and a tie between Quincy and Moline.

Hazen said she and the team are excited to control their own destiny in the final week of conference play before the league adds Geneseo and Sterling next year.

\u201cI think we\u2019re ready now,\u201d Hazen said. \u201cI think we\u2019ve been preparing all these games leading up to it, and I think we should be able to pull off what we want to do.\u201d

Finding the right touch on corner kicks can be a challenge for soccer players.

You have to gauge the playing surface, the weather and the force of the attempt to put the ball in the most dangerous spots.

Assumption junior Sully Kelly put on a clinic in that department Tuesday in a Mississippi Athletic Conference contest against North Scott.

Kelly had two assists off of corner kicks and then added a goal of her own from 30 yards out on a free kick to help the Knights roll past the Lancers 6-0 at the St. Vincent Center.

\"It's just a lot of repetition in practice,\" Kelly said of her ability to send in dangerous kicks. \"We definitely work on (corner kicks) a lot to prepare for situations. You have to look for your runners and try and find good spots.\"

Kelly seemed to hit the same spot on the five corner kicks she took during the contest. All five were roughly in the middle, near the goal or back post. It forced the Lancer keepers to make a tough decision whether to play the ball or let it drop five or six yards out. All of her kicks created dangerous opportunities for her teammates.

Lauren Herrig and Carly King scored off her corner kick decisions while the other three attempts had to be cleared at the last moment by the North Scott defense.

\"We've been practicing for the last week or so with her service on corners and set pieces and (Kelly) definitely delivered,\" Knights coach Elizabeth Maus said. \"Her service was spot on and she executed everything very well tonight.\"

Kelly, who is an experienced starter for the top-ranked team in Class 1A, added that knowing where her attackers are going to be in certain spots also helps.

\"I try to put (free kicks) on goal or where my girls are going to be,\" Kelly said. \"We are really close off the field which helps on the field, knowing each other and how we play.\"

Kelly was not the only one handing out great passes. Assumption (7-0, 4-0) got assists from Herrig, Kylie Hulsbrink and one particularly smooth assist from freshman Jade Jackson.

Early in the second half, Jackson slipped a low ground pass behind the defense into perfect position for King who was on the doorstep to finish a hat trick, which also gave the Knights a 4-0 lead. Elli Ivanic also scored for Assumption while Knights keeper Anna Vonderhaar had a relatively quiet night with three saves.

North Scott (6-4, 3-2) came into the game already in a hole after losing junior and key contributor Sophie Hughes to a season-ending knee injury on Saturday. Lancers coach Dion Ayers had to shift things around with his lineup, which left the middle of the field more exposed and the Knights took advantage by controlling most of the game from that position.

But Ayers did not take anything away from the winners, saying Assumption's excellent speed and passing punished any kind of defensive mistake his team made.

\"The thing with Assumption is, they probably have eight starters that are faster than our fastest kid on the field,\" Ayers said. \"We have to manufacture our offense and connect on passes down the field. Assumption gave us time to possess the ball but we were not moving off the ball to give ourselves options. We were standing there waiting for someone to drive by two people and that's not going to work against a team like Assumption.\"

As of Tuesday night, the Mississippi River at Lock and Dam 15 is expected to crest at 20.6 feet some time Monday into Tuesday.

But that forecast could change as a storm system with the potential for a lot of rain moves into the U.S. Highway 20 corridor north of the Quad-Cities over the weekend, said meteorologist Pete Speck of the National Weather Service, Davenport.

\u201cIt appears to have the potential to drop up to 1 \u00bd inches of rain this weekend,\u201d Speck said Tuesday night.

That could send the Mississippi River higher, or prolong this second crest, depending on how much rain actually falls, he said.

The Mississippi River at Lock and Dam 15, Rock Island, crested at 20.68 feet on April 8. Flood stage there is 15 feet.

Cooler weather will be moving into the Quad-City region during the week and over the weekend, he added. There is a slight chance of rain Wednesday with a high of 65, while the mercury on Thursday will reach into the lower 70s.

The high Friday is expected to be 64 degrees under sunny skies, while Saturday\u2019s high under cloudy skies will be in the upper 50s with an overnight low dipping into the upper 30s.

Speck said they are keeping an eye on the system that is expected to move in Friday night into Saturday to see how and where it sets up.

While Sunday is expected to be sunny with a high of 59, there is a 40 percent chance of rain Sunday night into Tuesday.

Speck said that as the weather forecasts become clearer in the models, the North Central River Forecast Center in Chanhassen, Minnesota, will calculate what rainfall is expected into the forecast for the Mississippi River.

\u201cThere is a lot of uncertainty right now,\u201d Speck said Tuesday night.

DES MOINES \u2014 A protracted debate Tuesday on a $602.5 million Justice Systems budget wasn\u2019t about the money.

It was, Republicans and Democrats agreed, about politics.

For the record, the Justice Systems budget would include $583.8 million from the general fund \u2014 a $13 million increase that would raise most agencies\u2019 budgets to cover, among other things, salary increases for contract and non-contract employees.

But it was a Republican proposal to limit the state attorney general\u2019s independence that sparked an hour-plus debate before the Iowa House approved the budget, 54-45.

\u201cThis is a political move,\u201d Rep. Marti Anderson, D-Des Moines, said about language that would require the attorney general to get permission from the governor, Legislature or Executive Council before joining lawsuits that do not originate in the Iowa.

Because both she and her husband worked for Attorney General Tom Miller in the past, Anderson said she knows \u201cevery action taken in his office is carefully vetted for its legal basis and effect on the people and the state of Iowa.\u201d

\u201cI would agree that it\u2019s political, but that sword cuts both ways,\u201d countered House Justice Systems Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman Gary Worthan, R-Storm Lake. \u201cIt\u2019s political because this attorney general has taken part in out-of-state lawsuits completely contrary to actions taken by Legislature and signed by governor. Those are the types of action we are trying to restrict \u2026 because it\u2019s the governor and Legislature that sets the agenda for state, not attorney general.\u201d

His approach won\u2019t remove politics from the attorney general\u2019s actions, Worthan said, \u201cbut will control the politics.\u201d

If majority Republicans don\u2019t like his politics, there\u2019s another solution, Rep. Brian Meyer, D-Des Moines, told Worthan.

\u201cRun someone who can beat him,\u201d said Meyer, who worked for Miller at one time.

Miller, a Democrat, has been elected 11 times and is the nation\u2019s longest serving state attorney general.

\u201cI feel the decision to file a lawsuit is so fundamental to the authority of the attorney general,\u201d Miller said after watching the debate from the House gallery. \u201cI believe that I\u2019ve made those decisions to the best of my ability. The public seems to have agreed. They have elected me many times by big margins.\u201d

In 2018, he did not have a GOP challenger.

An effort to remove the restrictive language was defeated 48-51, with two Republicans joining Democrats.

Miller said he will fight the restrictions when the budget goes back to the Senate, where Republicans have an even larger majority than in the House.

\u201cI will keep fighting and battling it over it,\u201d he said, but called it premature to talk about filing a lawsuit to challenge the restrictions.

Miller has a record of joining fellow attorneys general in multi-state suits, many aimed at blocking actions by President Donald Trump.

In 2018, for example, he joined a half dozen lawsuits started in other states, including one to stop family separations on the U.S.-Mexico border and another adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census.

Miller also has joined multi-state consumer protection lawsuits, often winning monetary settlements for the state and Iowans.

Worthan\u2019s amendment would require the attorney general to report all court and money settlement awards made to the state as well as report which funds are designated to receive the moneys and cite the legal authority to designate the funds.

He said it\u2019s important to look at whether the lawsuits Miller joined involved federal issues or state issues. Most addressed national issues.

Although Miller filed at least one action opposing the Obama administration \u2014 challenging the Waters of the United States rule \u2014 Miller said \u201cDemocrat attorneys general tend to check Republicans. Republican attorneys general tend to check Democrats.\u201d

The House approved a $184 million budget for the judicial branch, a $3.5 million increase.

The House also accepted a Senate amendment to Senate File 188 that would prohibit community colleges and regents universities from enforcing any rule preventing people from carrying a weapon \u201cproducing a non-projectile high-voltage pulse designed to immobilize a person\u201d \u2014 or a stun gun.

On Monday, senators added a provision that would allow the regents to bar carrying of stun guns inside of a stadium or hospital under the regents\u2019 oversight.

Girls track and field

Cajigal leads Alleman at Sailer Invite: Asked to describe Alexandra Cajigal, the Alleman senior who won the Mary Welling Award for the top athlete at Tuesday\u2019s 14th annual Sailer Girls\u2019 Track & Field Invitational, Alleman coach Scott Stoll offered two words.

\u201cWest Point,\u201d he said. \u201cThat\u2019s all you really need to know.\u201d

The U.S. Army is Cajigal\u2019s destination when her Pioneer days are over, and success in her last Sailer Invite was her determination.

Cajigal won the 3200 in a meet record time of 11:47.57, eclipsing the 2012 mark of 11:50.99 set by Sherrard\u2019s Skye Corken. She later won gold in the 1600 in 5:37.83.

\u201cI gave her a tough night,\u201d said Alleman coach Scott Stoll. \u201cAfter the 1600, she had about a 15-minute break before she came back and ran a leg in the 4x400 (which placed third). She\u2019s one of those who still do it and don\u2019t complain. The bigger the challenge, the more she comes through.\u201d

The Welling Award wasn\u2019t the only one captured by the Pioneers. They also won the Sailer trophy for the top team, running away with the championship by scoring 165 points. United Township, the largest school in the nine-team field, was second with 96 points. Sherrard was third with 67.

IOWA CITY \u2013 The more things change, the more they remain the same in Phil Parker\u2019s world.

While spring has been a time of experimentation, the Hawkeye defensive coordinator said Tuesday one thing remains a constant no matter how Iowa aligns its personnel.

\u201cWe\u2019re running the same defense,\u2019\u2019 Parker said. \u201c\u2026 Our philosophy of what we are doing structure-wise hasn\u2019t really changed. Our thoughts of how we are attacking somebody or how we are trying to defend somebody, those haven\u2019t changed.\u2019\u2019

Parker\u2019s point is that whether Iowa opts to put a fifth defensive back in its \u201ccash\u2019\u2019 position or chooses to insert a linebacker into a spot normally filled by a defensive end, the expectations remain unchanged aren\u2019t all that different from what the Hawkeyes have used in the past.

\u201cAre you calling the right things? Are you playing the right coverages? Are you doing the right things?\u2019\u2019 Parker said. \u201cAs long as everybody understands what we\u2019re doing and they can execute it, it\u2019s okay.\u2019\u2019

Parker concedes that the proliferation of spread offensive attacks have changed the way teams defend, among the reasons Amani Hooker shifted into hybrid defensive back/linebacker role he filled over the final two thirds of the 2018 season for Iowa.

He said the decision to implement the look that made a difference in the Hawkeyes\u2019 9-4 season wasn\u2019t a difficult move at all given the way the game has evolved.

\u201cWe\u2019ve been cheating the system for a while,\u2019\u2019 Parker said, pointing to the work and athletic ability of Christian Kirksey and Ben Niemann in recent seasons. \u201cWe were getting away with some guys, but those were our best guys to put on the field.\u2019\u2019

Hooker provided the same abilities.

\u201cI figured if we put a guy there who had a little more skill and can move a little better, he can help us out in the passing game when they are trying to attack us there,\u2019\u2019 Parker said. \u201cTo me, it wasn\u2019t much of a decision. It was time to move forward on that.\u2019\u2019

Iowa has spent the spring working to dissect who will move into the \u201ccash\u2019\u2019 spot.

D.J. Johnson, Matt Hankins, Michael Ojemudia and Julius Brents have all spent time at the position and while Hooker shifted over from a safety position, Parker suggested that cornerbacks may be better suited for the role.

\u201cAnybody that plays a corner, they have a chance to go down there, play inside,\u2019\u2019 Parker said. \u201cIt\u2019s a lot of the same techniques that we\u2019re teaching to the outside.\u2019\u2019

The same principles apply as Hawkeye coaches flirt with a three-player defensive front, replacing a lineman with a linebacker.

Before suffering an ankle injury that has sidelined him for the final weeks of spring drills, senior Amani Jones was getting a look at that position.

Parker said in the practices since, Barrington Wade, Kristian Welch, Dillon Doyle and Joe Evans have been inserted into that stand-up spot.

\u201cUsually, it\u2019s almost like playing the Leo linebacker. Sometimes you\u2019re going to play on a tight end and sometimes, you\u2019re going to be playing on an offensive tackle,\u2019\u2019 Parker said. \u201cWhat we\u2019re looking for is some toughness and guys that have a lot of energy and effort. I think our guys have been doing a good job.\u2019\u2019

He said what they are being asked to do doesn\u2019t vary that much from what Iowa expected out of Parker Hesse when he shifted from a linebacker to defensive end position late in the 2014 season as he redshirted during his freshman year.

\u201cHe was a big-sized linebacker when he first got here, too,\u2019\u2019 Parker said. \u201cIt\u2019s all about the way you can put guys in a certain position where they are not always going to be taking on the power-O with a double team on a tackle and a guard.\u2019\u2019

The ability of the player to work against a tight end or an open end is what Iowa coaches are looking for at the position.

\u201cIt gives them a little more freedom and it\u2019s not like they are going to be pounding all the time,\u2019\u2019 Parker said. \u201cIt\u2019s very similar to what sometimes an outside backer would do.\u2019\u2019

Those similarities have allowed the experimentation to work.

Parker said Iowa defenders have been shuffled between positions more this spring than at any time in his 21 seasons with the program, working to gain knowledge with hopes that more players will understand the concepts that are at the root of what Iowa wants to accomplish.

\u201cIt\u2019s always been a chess-match game,\u2019\u2019 Parker said, \u201cbut after a while it\u2019s still 11 guys on 11 guys.\u2019\u2019

ROCK ISLAND \u2014 The families of two men killed on July 3 when a tree limb fell on them as they watched fireworks from the lawn of the Rock Island County Courthouse have filed a wrongful death suit against the county.

The 35-count suit, filed in the county courts, also names the Rock Island County Sheriff's Office, the city of Rock Island and Raney Horticultural Inc./Raney Tree Care as defendants. The plaintiffs are the estates of Lawrence K. Anderson and Daniel Mendoza, the men who were killed, and the men's wives, Randy Anderson and Eva Mendoza. Also named as plaintiffs are Kathleen Carter and Kataivreonna Carter.

The Carters were also struck by the limb or its branches, the suit states.

In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs detail what responsibilities they believe the defendants had in regard to the tree\u2019s care and why they believe the defendants were negligent in those responsibilities.

RI COUNTY, SHERIFF'S OFFICE

The county and its sheriff\u2019s office were responsible for the trees on the courthouse lawn, including their inspection, maintenance and \u2014 should it be needed \u2014 removal.

The sheriff\u2019s office either knew or should have known the danger the tree, which the plaintiffs argue was visibly decayed, represented.

On Tuesday, Rock Island County Sheriff Gerry Bustos said he was aware of the suit and that it was in the hands of the county\u2019s legal department. He declined to comment further.

CITY OF ROCK ISLAND

The city cares for trees near or on its public rights of way, the suit states. The tree at issue had limbs and branches that stretched over a city sidewalk and 15th Street.

Rock Island also recognized or should have recognized the tree\u2019s ailing condition and the threat it posed, the suit states.

Dave Morrison, Rock Island\u2019s city attorney, declined on Tuesday to comment on the suit.

RANEY TREE CARE

The plaintiffs argue Raney was hired by the county to care for the courthouse trees before the July 3 incident. The company, they contend, knew or should have recognized that the tree was decaying and was a danger.

Raney should have removed the tree and/or notified the government entities responsible about its condition, the suit states.

A message was left Tuesday afternoon at the Raney business number, but a representative of the company had not returned the call as of 6 p.m.

The plaintiffs are asking for damages in excess of $50,000, the suit states.

When suits are filed, the defendants can file answers to the plaintiffs\u2019 complaints. In these filings, the defendants respond to the allegations filed against them.

None of the defendants in the tree suit had filed an answer as of Tuesday.

A Davenport man was sentenced Thursday to up to seven years in prison for a hit-and-run crash that killed bicyclist David Freeland in July.

Andre Marcus Shaw, 34, also was ordered to pay $150,000 in restitution to Freeland\u2019s estate, court records show. He received credit for nearly 180 days already served in the Scott County Jail.

Shaw pleaded guilty in March in Scott County District Court to homicide by vehicle-drag racing, a Class D felony, and failure to stop at the scene of an accident resulting in serious injury.

Davenport police responded to a hit-and-run crash in the 1700 block of Brady Street at 1:30 a.m. July 31.

Police say Freeland, 53, of Davenport was riding a bicycle north on Brady Street in the east (curb) lane just north of 17th Street when he was struck from behind by a 1995 Buick Park Avenue with no plates. Shaw was identified as the driver, according to an arrest affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint.

The vehicle fled and was recovered in the 1000 block of Charlotte Street.

Prior to the crash, the Buick was one of five vehicles traveling together, in what one witness in a vehicle described as \"joyriding,\" and swerving across four lanes of traffic. Speed surveys done from surveillance videos confirmed they were traveling at speeds ranging from 62-72 mph.

After hitting Freeland, Shaw continued speeding and ran stop signs in a residential area.

He was arrested in October.

Court records show that he also was sentenced Thursday to up to two years in prison on one count of third-degree criminal mischief in a separate case. The sentence will run consecutively, or back-to-back, with the sentence in the hit-and-run case, for a total of up to nine years in prison.

PEORIA, Ill.\u00a0\u2014 Austin Hansen and R.J. Freure combined on a one-hit shutout Tuesday, leading the Quad-Cities River Bandits to an 8-0 Midwest League victory at Peoria.

Hansen didn\u2019t allow a hit over a five-inning start, striking out five batters and walking three before exiting with a 3-0 lead that came as Quad-Cities put together a 13-hit attack led by a 4-for-5 game at the plate by David Hensley.

Jonathan Lacroix and Hensley drove balls out of Dozer Park in the fourth inning, the first back-to-back home runs of the season for the River Bandits.

Freure took over on the mound in the fifth, matching Hansen\u2019s strikeout total and surrendering the only hit managed by the Chiefs.

A leadoff single by Leandro Cedeno was Peoria\u2019s lone hit of the game as Freure earned the save, striking out five batters and walking two batters.

Quad-Cities scored the only run it needed in its second shutout win of the season in the top of the second inning when Hensley drove base hit into left which scored Scott Schreiber from second. Schreiber was hit by a pitch to open the inning and stole second to move into scoring position.

After Lacroix and Hensley homered, back-to-back doubles by Ross Adolph and Trey Dawson extended the River Bandits\u2019 lead to 4-0.

Quad-Cities doubled its lead in the ninth on RBI singles by Jeremy Pena and Schreiber, a sacrifice fly by Lacroix and a run-scoring single by Hensley.

Clinton rallies past Beloit

Nick Ward belted a first-inning grand slam for Beloit, but Clinton rallied for a 5-4 win on Tuesday at LumberKings Stadium.

Brayan Hernandez drove home the game-deciding runs in the bottom of the seventh inning on a rare two-run sacrifice fly.

Marcos Rivera had walked to open the inning and took third when Thomas Jones doubled off the wall in left-center. Hernandez followed by driving a ball that was caught to center, but Rivera and Jones both tagged up and came home to score on the play.

The runs allowed Clinton\u2019s Sean Guenther to earn his first win of the season in relief of starter Humberto Mejia, who pitched five shutout innings as the LumberKings chipped away at the deficit after Ward belted his first home of the season.

An RBI single by Rivera in the second and a two-run home run in the sixth by Sean Reynolds, his second homer in as many games, positioned Clinton to complete the rally in the seventh.

Mackenzie Rice, Bettendorf, got the thrill of a lifetime Easter Sunday along with 242 of her Iowa State University classmates as they performed at world-famous Carnegie Hall in New York City.

\u201cI think we sounded pretty good,\u201d the violinist said Monday before catching her flight back from New York. She's a 2018 Bettendorf High School graduate and associate concertmaster of the 76-member ISU Symphony Orchestra. \u201cThe concert hall is absolutely beautiful. It didn't even feel real that I was there.\u201d

The orchestra joined the Iowa State Singers,\u00a0Iowa Statesmen,\u00a0ISU Cantamus Women's Choir\u00a0and the Lyrica Women's Choir in performing \u201cDona nobis pacem\u201d (which means \u201cGrant us peace\u201d), a\u00a0cantata\u00a0written by English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams\u00a0in 1936. The student orchestra separately played Edvard Grieg's Symphonic Dance No. 4 at the concert Sunday night.

\u201cCarnegie was very strict about using the space,\u201d said Rice, who's played violin for nearly 10 years. \u201cThey made everybody leave really soon after the concert ended. They were strict about who goes where. I have a friend in choir, and they wouldn't let me go through dressing rooms.\u201d

Students also couldn't take photos from the stage during their pre-concert sound check, and no one could shoot during the concert, she said. \u201cIt was still really cool overall.\u201d

\u201cIt's really special if you can get there once every 20 years,\u201d Tom Cunningham, interim director of the ISU orchestra, said Tuesday, noting it's common for Carnegie Hall to be rented to student groups from across the country. As a singer at Westminster Choir College, he performed at Carnegie in 2012 with the Berlin Philharmonic in Mahler's Symphony No. 2.

\u201cAs a performer, you make the sounds, create so much of the experience, and as a conductor, you're more a conduit to get the experience together,\u201d Cunningham said of performing in the hallowed hall. \u201cThey're both wonderful.\u201d

\u201cIt's been incredible,\u201d he said of the ISU preparation and performance. \u201cThey've been so focused, so connected. What's so special about this, they've grown so much closer together. The day of the concert, there was so much excitement, energy. I think they handled it very well. The hall is so spectacular.\u201d

ISU, based in Ames, has been no stranger to Carnegie Hall in recent years. The Cantamus Women's Choir did a collegiate concert there April 1, 2018; the same Vaughan Williams piece was done with a professional orchestra in 2014; and the Iowa State Singers also performed there about three years ago, said James Rodde, ISU director of choral activities, who conducted every time.

\"It's always special for new students, new music, challenges with the music,\" he said Tuesday of singing at Carnegie. \"It's always fun, always a fulfilling experience. We really strive to achieve at a high level.\"

\"I do think it plants great memories and seeds for continued choral experiences in the future.\" Rodde said.

The Iowa State Singers have toured throughout North America, as well as in England, Poland, Russia, Australia, Scandinavia, the Baltic States, China and Korea.

In March 2013, conductor Laura Lane brought the Knox College Choir to the majestic Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall to perform Haydn's \"Lord Nelson Mass\" with the Monmouth Chorale, members of the Galesburg Community Chorus, Knox alumni in Chicago, and students from St. Ambrose University in Davenport and Galesburg and Rock Island high schools.

The Augustana College Choir and Handel Oratorio Society performed at Carnegie Hall in 2010 and 2011.

A man accused earlier this year of illegally having a gun in downtown Moline is serving his sentence after pleading guilty as part of a negotiation with prosecutors.

Scottie S. Smith, 21, Chicago, has been sentenced to two years in the Illinois Department of Corrections on a count of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, according to Rock Island County court records. He must serve a year of mandatory supervised release once his prison term is complete.

Smith was arrested on Jan. 14 after a foot chase in downtown Moline near the Kone Center, according to the Moline Police Department. During that chase, Smith allegedly threw away a 9 mm handgun with an extended magazine that could hold up to 30 rounds.

Officers initially were called to the area to respond to a report of suspicious activity, police said. In total, the incident resulted in three arrests, including that of Smith. The other two were identified as Mimi Boots, 41, of Cedar Rapids, and Jeremiah Taylor, 23, of Cedar Rapids.

Boots has been charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, according to court records. She is accused of being armed with a .25-caliber pistol without the proper Illinois concealed carry or firearm owner identification paperwork.

During Boots' initial hearing in January, Judge Frank R. Fuhr said she had the proper paperwork to go armed in Iowa, but that permit is not valid in Illinois.

Her case was pending as of Tuesday, and her next court date is scheduled for Thursday.

Taylor was never charged in Rock Island County. He was arrested on warrants out of Iowa\u2019s Linn and Polk counties.

Smith was first charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to court records. He is accused of carrying a pistol despite a felony conviction out of Cook County.

The unlawful use of a weapon charge was added later, records state.

Smith pleaded guilty on April 11, records state. He chose to waive a presentence investigation and so was sentenced during the same hearing.

A presentence investigation gathers information about a defendant\u2019s background and is presented to the sentencing judge, who uses it to help determine the appropriate sentence.

DES MOINES \u2014 Rep. Andy McKean, the longest-serving Republican in the Iowa Legislature, is now the newest member of the House Democratic caucus.

McKean\u2019s departure from the GOP was announced Tuesday, shaving Republicans\u2019 margin in the chamber to 53-47. He is now listed on the legislative website as \u201cno party specified,\u201d but plans to change his registration when he is back home in Jones County.

McKean, 69, an Anamosa lawyer who was elected to the Iowa House in 1978, said there was no single issue that precipitated his move, but cited the election of President Donald Trump in 2016 and a Republican Party he found \u201cvery changed\u201d when he returned to the Legislature in 2017.

\u201cI found myself increasingly uncomfortable with the stance of my party,\u201d he said. \u201cQuite frankly, in listening to the discussion on the critical issues of the day since I\u2019ve been back in Des Moines, I\u2019ve felt in great sympathy with the Democratic Party on most of those major issues.

His announcement came as Republicans, who control the House and Senate, are pushing to wrap up the 2019 session yet this week, ahead of the May 3 scheduled adjournment when lawmakers\u2019 daily expense money runs out.

Depending on how the rest of this current term goes, McKean said he plans to run for re-election as a Democrat in 2020.

Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann wished him luck running in a district Trump carried by 20 points, Gov. Kim Reynolds carried by 15 and Sen. Joni Ernst won by 8.

\u201cWhen he was running for office a mere five months ago, he made a commitment to the voters of District 58, running on the Republican platform. Today, he has violated the trust of the voters in his district,\u201d Kaufmann said.

Although he believes the party \u201chas veered very sharply to the right,\u201d McKean, who has voted with Democrats several times this year and has stated his opposition to Republican bills yet to be called up for debate, allowed that his decision wasn\u2019t solely a reaction to changes in the Republican Party.

\u201cPerhaps we both changed. I guess we all evolve over the years,\u201d he said. \u201cI certainly don\u2019t want to put it all at the feet of the party. Probably it\u2019s some changes in me, too, as I\u2019ve grown older.\u201d

House leaders \u201cweren\u2019t happy\u201d when he told them of his decision Monday, he said, \u201cbut couldn\u2019t have been nicer than they were.\u201d

House Speaker Linda Upmeyer, R-Clear Lake, told Radio Iowa that his departure from the GOP \u201cwill not distract us from moving forward with the conservative agenda that Iowans have tasked us with. As a majority of 53 strong Republicans, we are committed to completing our work.\u201d

Across the aisle, House Minority Leader Todd Prichard, D-Charles City, was \u201cthrilled\u201d to have McKean join the caucus.

\u201cMcKean has a long history of bipartisanship and understands the value of working together to get things done,\u201d Prichard said. He expects McKean to \u201ccontinue to be a strong, pragmatic voice\u201d for his district.

Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Troy Price also welcomed McKean\u2019s decision to \u201cput people over politics.\u201d

One factor in his decision to change parties, McKean said, was election of Trump.

\u201cIt is just a matter of time before our country pays a heavy price for President Trump\u2019s reckless spending and shortsighted financial policies, his erratic, destabilizing foreign policy, and his disregard for environmental concerns,\u201d McKean said. The president\u2019s \u201ccrude and juvenile\u201d insults and bullying set a bad example for children, he added.

\u201cIf this is the new normal, I want no part of it,\u201d McKean said.

He considered following the example of former state Sen. David Johnson of Ocheyedan, who responded to Trump\u2019s GOP nomination by leaving the party and finishing his term as \u201cno party.\u201d

\u201cBut it was clear to me he was marginalized in the Senate and I want to continue to be an active member of the House, and thought there was much more likelihood of that in the Democratic Party,\u201d McKean said.

Party switches have been unusual in the Iowa Legislature. In 2004, Rep. Doug Struyk of Council Bluffs left the Democrats to join the Republican majority. In 2007, Democrat Rep. Dawn Pettengill of Mount Auburn left the Democratic majority to become a Republican. Pettengill retired in 2016 and Struyk is a lobbyist.

Ironically, McKean succeeded Rep. Brian Moore of Bellevue, who first ran as a Democrat, but joined the Republican Party before being elected to the House.

McKean served 24 years in the House and Senate. He was Senate Judiciary Committee chairman and president pro tempore when he left in 2002. He then was elected to the Jones County Board of Supervisors. In 2015, after retiring from a 35-year law practice, he ran for the House in 2016.

His wife, Connie, serves as his clerk. They have four adult children.

You don't have to have a dog in the courthouse fight to feel bitten.

And I'm not talking about the legal dispute over demolition of the Rock Island County-owned building. There's been so much bad information floating around, it's a wonder taxpayers aren't gathering on the lawn with pitchforks.

The chief problem, at least in recent experience, has been the misinformation dished up by a member of the construction team, which has been in direct conflict with intel supplied by county officials.

The latest confusion centers on two issues: The \"dead\" trees on the courthouse property and repairs to holes in the roof.

Phil Thiele, project manager for primary contractor Gilbane Building Co., said Sheriff Gerry Bustos asked an expert to study the courthouse trees and determined a half-dozen of them are dead. As a result, red X marks were spray painted on the trees to identify which ones are to be removed.

The problem is: An arborist did look at the trees last summer after two people were killed by a fallen limb at a Fourth of July event. But only one of the remaining trees was declared a danger, Bustos said Tuesday.

So why, I asked, are at least four other trees marked for removal, including two magnolia trees that currently are in bloom?

\"I don't know,\" Bustos said. \"I've instructed virtually everyone I can find to leave everything alone.\"

Could it be that the spray-painted trees are simply inconveniently located, and the demo contractor has decided to get them out of the way?

\"There may be a day that comes true,\" the sheriff said Tuesday. \"That's not today.\"

Bustos has been in contact with those who are fighting the courthouse demo to let them know of the necessity to remove the one dangerous tree, he said, and it's likely to happen in coming days.

Seems reasonable.

What about Thiele's statements earlier this week about a pending contract for repairs to the courthouse roof?

\"I don't want anyone else talking about that building but me,\" Bustos said. \"It's just conflicting (information). That building is owned by Rock Island County. Me, as sheriff; I'm in charge of it.\"

Speaking of which, I asked Bustos why so many people are acting like the damaged roof is news. He told the county board all about the damage \u2014 even showed them pictures \u2014 at their Feb. 19 meeting.

\"I told them before that!\" he said, clarifying that he told the County Board in January about holes in the roof that resulted from asbestos removal. At the time, the courthouse was slated for demolition, and the asbestos had to go. Though the demo status now is in legal limbo, county officials were cool at the time, Bustos said, to get rid of the material hazard.

\"The court has said to hold on, so that's what we're doing now,\" he said.

The sheriff said he insists on being \"very respectful\" of the court order to halt demolition, but he is \"unaware of any order to fix the roof.\"

And he's said before that he's not interested in spending taxpayer money \"on a building with no future,\" but the decision on whether to repair the roof belongs to others, so he's been talking it over with the County Board chairman and county administrator.

The cost of roof repairs would come out of the general fund, he said, and a decision is expected in the next couple of days.

\"If they want to do something with it, I'll be respectful of that,\" Bustos said. \"But I'll contend as I've always contended: Rock Island County is broke.\"

True that. But broke people deserve the truth, too.

\"What may have seemed confusing a day ago \u2014 we've gotten to the bottom of, and we're all on the same page now,\" the sheriff assured.

Cool.

But something else occurred to me while walking the perimeter of the safety fence around the courthouse this week: Remember when the sheriff declared that one reason the courthouse has to go is that it presents security threats to the new building? He talked about the potential for sniper fire from various elevations of the old building.

If the courthouse is torn down, though, I noticed Tuesday that it would open up a direct line of fire from the bell tower on the old church across the street (and TV has taught us that snipers love bell towers). There's also another vacant building on the north side of the new courthouse annex. Are we going to tear those down, too?

But I exercised uncharacteristic restraint and let the argument lie.

Given the seemingly endless frustrations to befall the sheriff, regarding the whole courthouse issue, it seemed best to let it go. Plus, I reminded myself I don't have a dog in this fight.

Woof!

After playing the first 19 games of the season on the road, the Quad-Cities River Bandits are coming home.

Midwest League baseball returns to Modern Woodmen Park on Friday, when Quad-Cities will host Clinton at 6:35 p.m. in the first of four weekend games at the Davenport riverfront stadium.

The River Bandits and LumberKings will play games in the Quad-Cities at noon and 5 p.m. on Saturday and 1:15 p.m. on Sunday. Saturday's doubleheader includes the make-up of a game rained out in Clinton on April 11 and will consist of two seven-inning games.

Gates for the public for Friday\u2019s home opener will open at 5:35 p.m. and a VIP party originally set for the team\u2019s scheduled April 4 opener will be held beginning at 4:45 p.m.

To show appreciation for the community support the River Bandits have received since being forced out of their home stadium more than three weeks ago by Mississippi River flooding and an unexpected project to raise railroad tracks adjacent to the stadium, no admission will be charged for Saturday\u2019s noon game.

\u201cWe have a lot to be thankful for and finally, we\u2019re going to be home and getting back some semblance of a normal routine,\u2019\u2019 first-year River Bandits general manager Jacqueline Holm said.

With the Mississippi River still out of its banks and the elevated railroad tracks forming a barrier between Modern Woodmen Park and the rest of downtown Davenport, access to the stadium will be over a ramp which was constructed in recent days and covered with asphalt on Tuesday.

Parking will be available in a lot on the north side of the stadium as well as on streets and in ramps in downtown Davenport.

The River Bandits will be the home team on the road one more time before opening their home schedule.

Thursday\u2019s series opener between Quad-Cities and Clinton will be played at LumberKings Stadium at 1 p.m., giving River Bandits staff members a chance to set Modern Woodmen Park up for the start of the season.

\u201cWe will be receiving season-opening deliveries of concessions items and other deliveries throughout the day Thursday over the ramp after some new cement over the tracks dries, so logistically, the turnaround was just too quick to get everything ready for Thursday,\u2019\u2019 Holm said. \u201cWe should be good to go Friday.\u2019\u2019

All tickets for Thursday\u2019s game in Clinton will be priced at $5.

It will be the ninth scheduled home game Quad-Cities will play on the road, having also taken the field in Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Peoria.

\u201cWe can\u2019t thank the other teams in our league enough for the way they have reached out to help us,\u2019\u2019 Holm said. \u201cWe\u2019re grateful for the cooperation we\u2019ve received.\u2019\u2019

The River Bandits have rescheduled several opening-weekend promotions for this weekend, with a magnet schedule giveaway set for Friday and a pennant giveaway scheduled for Saturday.

Quad-Cities' annual helicopter candy drop remains on the schedule following Sunday's game.

Visit Quad-Cities officials have selected a firm to assist the regional convention and visitors bureau in developing a long-term strategic plan.

The Quad-Cities destination management organization announced Tuesday it's initiating a process to create a new vision and strategic plan. Officials selected Resonance Consultancy to help develop the long-range plan over the next six to eight months.\u00a0

\"We are at the right time in our region\u2019s story to engage one of the best teams in the world to help create a long-range, comprehensive and, what we believe will be a transformative vision and plan, for our unique regional destination,\" said Dave Herrell, president and CEO, in the news release. \"This project will be well thought-out, a team-based approach and an opportunity to look in the mirror and window to our future.\"

The strategic plan will assess how to competitively position the Quad-Cities in the tourism industry. Visit Quad-Cities is collaborating with its stakeholders and the Q2030 Regional Action plan, according to the release.

The Quad-Cities Convention and Visitors Bureau named Herrell, previously of Jacksonville, Fla., its leader last fall. Since he took over, Herrell has said developing a new strategic plan and rebranding the Quad-Cities are some of his top priorities.\u00a0\u00a0

With offices in New York and Vancouver, Resonance has produced tourism strategy work for groups such as Travel Portland, Tourism Vancouver, Visit Tulsa, Destination Cleveland and others. Resonance provides tourism, economic development, strategy, branding and real estate development consulting.\u00a0

According to the release, Resonance's process will include stakeholder and community engagement. A steering committee will provide guidance in helping change how the Quad-Cities markets itself as a tourism destination.

\"Resonance Consultancy is looking forward to working with Visit Quad-Cities to help the region and its stakeholders understand its key competitive advantages and weaknesses,\" Resonance Consultancy President & CEO Chris Fair said in the release. \"Our collaboration with the community will build the foundation to create a destination strategic plan to guide the planning, product development, programming, policy and promotion of the Quad-Cities' tourism industry and the vast economic benefits it generates.\"

Resonance Executive Vice President Richard Cutting-Miller and Vice President of Destination Development Jim McCaul will lead the project.

Cutting-Miller has produced more than 50 strategic plans for tourism focused economies, from Hong Kong to South Carolina, according to the release. McCaul manages destination development planning, programs and resources for clients and stakeholders.\u00a0

Davenport Alderwoman Rita Rawson officially announced her candidacy for mayor Tuesday morning, promising to focus on affordable housing, urban revitalization and economic development if she\u2019s elected in November.

\u201cI look forward to being the next mayor of the city of Davenport,\u201d Rawson told a group of about two dozen attendees on the top floor of the German American Heritage Center & Museum, adding: \u201cI really do see Davenport as being that city that other municipalities can look to for having progressive stances and positive momentum (and) development for economic infrastructure as well as growth in jobs.\u201d

Rawson, who\u2019s represented the city\u2019s 5th Ward since 2016, pointed to her community involvement with groups like the East Bluff Neighborhood Association, the Riverfront Improvement Commission and the Plan & Zoning Commission, saying she understands the wants and needs of everyday residents. She also referenced affordable housing, development along the Riverfront and downtown and building up the city\u2019s older corridors as key components of her campaign platform.\u00a0\u00a0

Rawson also said she\u2019ll advocate for being \u201cvery wise\u201d with the city\u2019s tax dollars, adding she\u2019d encourage various public-private partnerships to make some of her visions for the city come true.

Rawson\u2019s announcement comes more than seven months since Mayor Frank Klipsch surprised many in City Hall circles by choosing not to seek a third term. His bow out of city politics set the stage for a wide-open contest to succeed him.

Speaking to news reporters following her announcement, Rawson said Klipsch\u2019s decision not to run partially influenced her choice.

\u201cIt\u2019s always been something I\u2019ve been interested in,\u201d Rawson said. \u201cI had actually talked to Mayor Klipsch three years ago about running for mayor when he was done. What precipitated this obviously is that he surprised us all by announcing last December that he wasn\u2019t going to run. So, that put me in the position of kind of thinking about, \u2018Hey, do I want to do this?\u2019 And I do.\u201d

Rawson also said more needs to be done about extending affordable housing options in the city. She referenced reports indicating affordable housing options are lacking in the area and the \u201chundreds of abandoned, boarded up structures across the city.\u201d

\u201cThat\u2019s a math equation to me that\u2019s easily a 1+1=2,\" she said. \"We need to start to put some programs together to start to effect change with some of those abandoned houses and turn them into housing that people can actually live in.\"

Roughly two-dozen people attended the event. Among them was Alderwoman Maria Dickmann, 2nd Ward, who stopped short of offering a formal endorsement for Rawson but said she \u201chas some great ideas.\u201d

Rawson\u2019s bid for the mayor\u2019s office is the second by a sitting council member. Alderman Mike Matson, 7th Ward, announced in February that he would seek the office, saying his No. 1 priority if elected would be enhancing public safety.

Also expected to announce his candidacy this week is Steve Duffy, a member of the Davenport Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. Duffy, a former insurance policy manager who retired about 10 years ago, is scheduled to kick off his campaign Wednesday morning at the unfinished Miracle Field in Prairie Heights Park.

Health care once is likely to be one of the major issues in the 2020 elections.

With bipartisan support, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) is working to pass three pieces of legislation to combat the rising prices of prescription drugs. Durbin spoke about the bills at UnityPoint-Trinity's Rock Island campus last Wednesday.

Durbin's pieces of legislation\u00a0\u2014 the REMEDY Act, FLAT Prices Act and REFUND Act \u2014 purport to lower prices by cracking down on patent abuses and removing barriers to approval for lower-cost generic drugs, reduce the government-granted monopoly period for medications if their prices are \"significantly increased\" and reduce wasted spending on discarded medications which are the result of excessively large single-use vials.

\"If you ask the American people what their major economic concern is today, it turns out to be prescription drug pricing number one,\" Durbin said, saying number two is saving for retirement.\u00a0

Looking into the history of prescription drugs, Durbin said when the patent for insulin was surrendered, it was sold for $1 to the University of Toronto. \"Now fast forward almost 100 years later and look what's happened\u00a0\u2014 the price of insulin and insulin products have risen dramatically,\" he said, highlighting the brand name insulin, Humalog. What had been $29 a dose has risen to over $329, and Durbin says the price has increased about 34 times in 10 years. Even if the price has dropped for some, Durbin charged, that same drug is sold in Canada for $38 dollars.

Durbin's FLAT Prices Act would counteract the high prices of drugs when companies have exclusivity by imposing a penalty if the price of the drug goes up more than 10 percent in a year. The company would lose six months of exclusivity, making companies think twice about raising that price, says Durbin.

The REFUND Act, which Durbin says has the support of the Trump Administration's Department of Health and Human Services, would reduce spending on medication that's dosed too large for people. He used the example of Takeda Pharmaceutical Company, which sells anti-cancer drug Velcade. \"It turns out that Takeda will only sell this drug Velcade in 3\u00a0\u00bd-milligram vials in the United States, but the drugs are administered by doctors based on the person's size,\" he said, saying that dosage would be proper for Chicago Bears player Khalil Mack, who's 6'6 and over 250 pounds. \"But for everyone else who happens to be smaller, which would be most of the adult population of America, you have to throw away the drug that you don't use.\"\u00a0

$310 million of Velcade is thrown away every year due to the 3 \u00bd-milligram vials, Durkin said. That's not the case in Canada or Europe, where 1\u00a0\u00bd-milligram vials are sold. That adds to the cost, Durkin said, and it's something he and many others want to see brought under control.

Lastly, Durbin's REMEDY Act, co-sponsored with Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), would help counteract patent abuse by companies that make minor modifications and request a patent to keep its monopoly.\u00a0

While Durbin says his bills have bipartisan support, he says he's working to build Republican support before bringing it to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The Children's Therapy Center of the Quad Cities is not reimbursed for 70% of the services it provides.

Because of area flooding, three of the center's major spring fundraisers have been set aside. If and when they will come to life is Mother Nature's guess.

Because it is an organization that is dependent on grants and fundraising, the CTC, which has served the Quad-Cities for 70 years, is walking a financial tightrope.

But help is on the way.

Megan Gustafson, a University of Iowa All-American who was arguably the top women's basketball player in college hoops this past season, is stepping up. The No. 17 pick in the recent WNBA draft, who led the Hawkeyes to an Elite 8 appearance, will sign autographs from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 27, at Davenport's Black & Gold Shop, 102 E. Kimberly Road.

All proceeds from autographed items bought by customers will benefit the CTC.

\"We lost our Spring Scrabble Social Ride in April, and we will lose our high school bass fishing tournament in May and our First Step Riverfront 5K in May, all because of flooding,'' said Angie Peterson, CTC CEO/president. \"We are talking about funds that represent in the neighborhood of 300 units of service to our kiddos. We have reached a critical stage for the overall well-being of the center.''

Gustafson, a three-time All-American at Iowa, became the fourth player in Division I history to score 1,000 points in a season.\u00a0

A four-year starter for Coach Lisa Bluders' Hawkeyes, Gustafson holds\u00a0 nearly every offensive record in Iowa women's basketball. She was a finalist for the 2019 Leslie Award, given by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and the Women\u2019s Basketball Coaches Association, as well as the Women\u2019s\u00a0Basketball Coaches Association\u2019s Wade Trophy, the John\u00a0Wooden Award, the Naismith Trophy and the Naismith\u00a0Defensive Player of the Year Award.

In March,\u00a0state senators in Iowa introduced a resolution to honor the Iowa great \u201cfor her\u00a0outstanding academic and college basketball career\u00a0at the University of Iowa.\u201d

Senators Zach Wahls, D-Coralville, Joe Bolkcom, D-Iowa City, and Chris Cournoyer, R-LeClaire, brought\u00a0Senate Resolution 14\u00a0to life to honor Gustafson, who was also named the 2018-19 ESPNW college basketball Player of the Year.

\"Megan is an inspiration to so many,'' Peterson said while sharing a break with CTC client Hallee, a 6-year-old born at 34 weeks.

Hallee was diagnosed with spina bifida and hydrocephalus, and her family was told she would never walk.

Thanks to therapy and determination, Hallee proved them wrong and did walk in her first year. She then developed kidney reflux and suffered a series of painful infections for a period of four years.

But in the past 12 months, Hallee\u00a0\u2014 with help from CTC therapists\u00a0\u2014 has made great strides. She walks, rides a therapy bike and is doing things physically doctors never believed she would.

\"It's key for us to continue to help create success stories like Hallee,'' Peterson said. \"Jeff Collins, who owns the Black & Gold Shops, has long been amazing to us and is again stepping forward to help.

\"I don't know a female basketball hopeful or\u00a0 young athlete\u00a0\u2014 male or female\u00a0\u2014 that has not been moved to be better after watching Megan. We are so lucky she understands our mission.''

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) \u2014 Saudi Arabia on Tuesday beheaded 37 Saudi citizens, most of them minority Shiites, in a mass execution across the country for alleged terrorism-related crimes. It also publicly pinned the executed body and severed head of a convicted Sunni extremist to a pole as a warning to others.

The executions were likely to stoke further regional and sectarian tensions between rivals Saudi Arabia and Iran.

Saudi dissident Ali Al-Ahmed, who runs the Gulf Institute in Washington, identified 34 of those executed as Shiites based on the names announced by the Interior Ministry.

\"This is the largest mass execution of Shiites in the kingdom's history,\" he said.

Amnesty International also confirmed the majority of those executed were Shiite men. The rights group said they were convicted \"after sham trials\" that relied on confessions extracted through torture.

It marked the largest number of executions in a single day in Saudi Arabia since Jan. 2, 2016, when the kingdom executed 47 people for terrorism-related crimes in what was the largest mass execution carried out by Saudi authorities since 1980.

Among those executed three years ago were four Shiites, including\u00a0prominent Shiite clericNimr al-Nimr, whose death sparked protests from Pakistan to Iran and the ransacking of the Saudi Embassy in Tehran. Saudi-Iran ties have not recovered and the embassy remains shuttered.

King Salman ratified by royal decree Tuesday's mass execution and that of 2016. The king, who has empowered his son Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has asserted a bolder and more decisive leadership style than previous monarchs since ascending to the throne in 2015.

The kingdom and its Sunni-led Arab allies have also been emboldened by U.S. President Donald Trump's unwavering dedication to pressuring Iran's Shiite clerical leadership, which includes his decision to pull out of a nuclear agreement with Iran and re-impose punishing sanctions to cripple its economy.

Al-Ahmed described Tuesday's executions as a politically motivated message to Iran.

\"This is political,\" he said. \"They didn't have to execute these people, but it's important for them to ride the American anti-Iranian wave.\"

The Interior Ministry's statement said those executed had adopted extremist ideologies and formed terrorist cells with the aim of spreading chaos and provoking sectarian strife. It said the individuals had been found guilty according to the law and ordered executed by the Specialized Criminal Court in Riyadh, which specializes in terrorism trials, and the country's high court.

The individuals were found guilty of attacking security installations with explosives, killing a number of security officers and cooperating with enemy organizations against the interests of the country, the Interior Ministry said.

The statement was carried across state-run media, including the Saudi news channel al-Ekhbariya. The statement read on the state-run news channel opened with a verse from the Quran that condemns attacks that aim to create strife and disharmony and warns of great punishment for those who carry out such attacks.

Al-Ahmed said among those executed was Shiite religious leader Sheikh Mohammed al-Attiyah, whose charges included seeking to form a sectarian group in the western city of Jiddah. Al-Ahmed said the sheikh publicly spoke of the need to work closely with Saudi Arabia's Sunni majority and would lead small prayer groups among Shiites.

In a speech he gave in 2011 under then King Abdullah, the sheikh was quoted as saying that frank and open dialogue between Sunnis and Shiites could help strengthen Saudi unity. He urged patience and expressed hope in a national dialogue that had taken place among Shiite dissidents and Sunni leaders.

\"As long as we live in the same country, we have no choice but to accept one another and live with one another, no matter the degree of difference between us,\" he said.

Amnesty International said 11 of the men were convicted of spying for Iran and sentenced to death after a \"grossly unfair trial.\" At least 14 others executed were convicted of violent offences related to their participation in anti-government demonstrations in Shiite-populated areas of Saudi Arabia between 2011 and 2012.

Among those put to death was a young man convicted of a crime that took place when he was 16 years-old, said Amnesty.

Saudi Arabia's supreme council of clerics, who are all ultraconservative Sunnis, said the executions were carried out in accordance with Islamic law.

The Interior Ministry said the body of one of the executed men \u2014 Khaled bin Abdel Karim al-Tuwaijri \u2014 was publicly pinned to a pole. The statement did not say in which city of Saudi Arabia the public display took place.

He appears to have been convicted as a Sunni militant, though the government did not give a detailed explanation of the charges against each individual executed.

The government defends such executions as a powerful tool for deterrence.

Saudi analysts and pro-government writers brought in to discuss the executions on al-Ekhbariya said they are a powerful sign that the country's leadership will not hesitate to use the full might of the judicial system to punish Saudis who seek to disrupt the kingdom's security.

Those executed hailed from Riyadh, Mecca, Medina and Asir, as well as Shiite Muslim populated areas of the Eastern Province and Qassim. The executions also took place in those various regions.

It brings the number of people executed since the start of the year to around 100, according to official announcements. Last year, the kingdom executed 149 people, most of them drug smugglers convicted of non-violent crimes, according to Amnesty's most recent figures.

Executions are traditionally carried out after midday prayers. Public displays of the bodies of executed men last for around three hours until late afternoon prayers, with the severed head and body hoisted to the top of a pole overlooking a main square.

This latest mass execution comes days after four Islamic State gunmen were killed by Saudi security forces while trying to attack a security building north of the capital, Riyadh.

It also comes on the heels of Sri Lanka's Easter Day attacks that killed over 300 people, including two Saudi nationals. The attack was claimed by the Islamic State group.

Local affiliates of the Islamic State group and Saudis inspired by its ideology launched several attacks in Saudi Arabia between 2014 and 2016, killing dozens of people, including security officers and Shiite worshippers. The last major attempted attack is believed to have been two years ago.

The group, like al-Qaida in the past, has sought to undermine the Al Saud royal family's legitimacy, which is rooted in part in its claim to implement Islamic Shariah law and to be the protectors of Islam's most sacred sites in Mecca and Medina that are at the center of hajj.

Davenport police are investigating a report of shots fired that occurred Tuesday in the area of 13th and Sturdevant streets.

Officers responded to the area around 11:30 a.m. and found broken glass from a vehicle in the street.

Preliminary information described a vehicle speeding from the scene. No injuries or damage was reported.

At 12:08 p.m., officers located an unoccupied vehicle with a broken window in an alley in the 2100 block of West 4th Street. The vehicle was suspected of being involved in the shots fired call, police say.

Officers searched the area for possible suspects, and schools in the area were placed on lockdown as a precaution. No suspects were located and the lockdown was lifted.

Detectives are following up. No other information was released Tuesday afternoon.

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

Davenport police are investigating a report of shots fired that occurred Tuesday in the area of 13th and Sturdevant streets.

Officers responded to the area around 11:30 a.m. and found broken glass from a vehicle in the street.

Preliminary information described a vehicle speeding from the scene. No injuries or damage was reported.

At 12:08 p.m., officers located an unoccupied vehicle with a broken window in an alley in the 2100 block of West 4th Street. The vehicle was suspected of being involved in the shots fired call, police say.

Officers searched the area for possible suspects, and schools in the area were placed on lockdown as a precaution. No suspects were located and the lockdown was lifted.

Detectives are following up. No other information was released Tuesday afternoon.

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

Why did assistant coach Andrew Francis leave to take a job on the staff at the University of California?

Hard to say. It looks to be a lateral move at best. After 12 years of working for Fran McCaffery at Siena and Iowa, it seems odd that Francis left to go to a place where he has no obvious connections.

There was no inkling of dissatisfaction at Iowa. Francis was extremely well liked and was probably the Hawkeyes\u2019 best recruiter although it\u2019s not as though they have a roster filled with 4- and 5-star recruits.

Francis\u2019 parting message on Twitter was entirely positive. He thanked the people of Iowa for treating him like family and said \u201cI fell in love with this amazing place because of all the amazing people.\u2019\u2019

But he\u2019s still leaving. Maybe after nine years he\u2019s just looking for a change of scenery?

At Cal, Francis will be working for former Georgia coach Mark Fox. The other full-time assistants on the staff will be Marty Wilson, the former Pepperdine head coach who is a holdover from the previous Cal staff, and former New Mexico, Nebraska and St. Louis assistant Chris Harriman. Fox also has brought in Trent Johnson, the former head coach at Stanford, Nevada, LSU and TCU, as an analyst on his staff.

Who is likely to replace Francis?

The names of several former Iowa players have been thrown out in early speculation, including Dean Oliver, Jeff Horner, Matt Gatens and Ryan Bowen.

Oliver is in his second year as an assistant at Wisconsin. Horner, formerly the head coach at West Des Moines Dowling and the director of basketball operations at North Dakota, went 14-15 last season in his first year as the head coach at Division II Truman State. Gatens was the director of basketball operations (a part-time position) at Drake last season. Bowen is in his eighth year as an assistant coach with the Denver Nuggets after briefly serving as a video coordinator and administrative assistant under McCaffery at Iowa.

Since McCaffery\u2019s other two assistants \u2014 Sherm Dillard and Kirk Speraw \u2014 are in their 60s, Francis\u2019 replacement will almost certainly be someone much younger and all those candidates qualify. Bowen is 43, Oliver 40, Horner 35 and Gatens 29.

But this would be a step down for Bowen and a lateral move (at best) for Oliver. It would be a major step up for Gatens and Horner has only been at Truman State for a year.

Don\u2019t be surprised if the answer to this question is none of the above.

What will the Hawkeyes do with the scholarships vacated by NBA-bound Tyler Cook and Akron-bound Maishe Dailey?

Maybe nothing, for now. It\u2019s likely that McCaffery and his staff will opt to hold onto them and use them for recruits in the 2020 class. It\u2019s possible they could use them on transfers or 2019 recruits but any high school player they might sign this late is likely to be a secondary type prospect.

It\u2019s not as though they are in a desperate situation with big holes to fill in the rotation for next season anyway.

If the Hawkeyes were to take a Division I transfer, who are the most likely possibilities?

First of all, remember that Iowa has not taken a Division I transfer since Jarrod Uthoff. This isn't something McCaffery likes to do very often.

However, the Hawkeyes have been linked with several possible transfers in recent weeks. They already have been eliminated in two of those cases. Akron\u2019s Daniel Utomi decided to go to USC and South Dakota State\u2019s David Jenkins has narrowed his list to seven schools. Iowa isn\u2019t one of them.

They also have been mentioned in connection with Notre Dame forward D.J. Harvey and the Hauser brothers\u00a0\u2014 Sam and Joey\u00a0\u2014 who have announced plans to leave Marquette.

Getting the Hausers would be a major coup for the Hawkeyes. Sam, a 6-foot-8 forward, has one year of eligibility remaining and Joey, a 6-9 forward who was a 5-star recruit coming out of high school, has three.

Both players are cut from the same mold. Both are 40-percent-plus 3-point shooters who can pass and rebound. Sam averaged 14.9 points and 7.2 rebounds per game while making 88 3s last season. Joey made the All-Big East freshman team last season after averaging 9.7 points, 5.3 rebounds and making 44 3s. They also were second and third on the team in assists.

The competition to get the Hausers will be tough. They have said they plan to visit Wisconsin, Michigan State and Virginia in addition to Iowa. They're from Wisconsin and they would fit in very well at Virginia so the Hawkeyes probably are a longshot. But they are in the rare position of having two scholarships open.

It doesn't hurt that Joey Hauser was an AAU teammate of Joe Wieskamp on the Iowa Barnstormers.

D.J. Harvey, a 6-6 forward, was a top-50 recruit coming out of high school. He played in 19 games as a freshman with the Fighting Irish before being sidelined by a knee injury. He underwent microfracture surgery, then started the first 29 games last season, averaging 10.7 points and 4.2 rebounds per game. His shooting percentages weren\u2019t the greatest \u2014 39.0 from the field, 29.9 from 3-point range \u2014 and there was speculation that Harvey was slow to recover from the knee problems.

Harvey, who played AAU ball in Washington D.C. with Iowa\u2019s Luka Garza, reportedly is also considering Marquette, USC, Houston, Georgetown, Auburn, Maryland, Xavier, Cincinnati and Nevada.

Whoever takes him will be gambling that he can regain his former level of athleticism while sitting out next season.

When Mississippi River floodwaters went down late last week, a temporary solution went up which will allow baseball to return soon to Davenport\u2019s Modern Woodmen Park.

Asphalt is scheduled to be placed over the top of a newly-installed gravel walkway today that will allow fans to cross recently-elevated railroad tracks and enter the stadium\u2019s plaza by walking down a ramp that was being put in place Monday.

While the stadium has remained unaffected by flooding, floodwaters in the vicinity and an unanticipated project that raised the railroad tracks that run adjacent to the facility by two feet have prevented the Quad-Cities River Bandits from playing at home through the first three weeks of the season.

Quad-Cities is scheduled to open a four-day, five-game homestand against Clinton on Thursday at Modern Woodmen Park and a conference call this afternoon between officials from the City of Davenport, the River Bandits and the Midwest League will determine if those games will be played in Davenport.

Representatives of the Houston Astros and Miami Marlins, parent clubs of the two teams scheduled to play in the Quad-Cities this week, have also been invited to participate.

If all goes well, gates for the River Bandits\u2019 first home game of the season will open to the public at 5:35 p.m. on Thursday, 60 minutes before the scheduled first pitch.

A contingency plan is in place if the games can not be played in Davenport.

\u201cWe feel like we\u2019re getting closer to being able to finally open the home season,\u2019\u2019 River Bandits general manager Jacqueline Holm said. \u201cI think we\u2019re all anxious for that to happen.\u2019\u2019

The River Bandits have had to move eight games of their 70-game home schedule to other venues in the first three weeks of the season, playing as the home team in games at Burlington, Cedar Rapids and most recently, in a neutral setting last week against Kane County at Peoria.

While the team has opened the season with an extended road trip, the River Bandits front-office staff worked out of a conference room provided by the Downtown Davenport YMCA until it was allowed to move back into its offices at Modern Woodmen Park last Thursday.

\u201cWhile we appreciate everything the people at the Y did for us, it feels good to be back at the ballpark,\u2019\u2019 Holm said. \u201cI know the players are anxious to get in there, too. Some of them haven\u2019t even been inside since getting here from spring training.\u2019\u2019

The asphalt-covered elevated walkway is being built to the height of the new rail crossing by Carl Bolander & Sons Co., a St. Paul, Minnesota, company hired by the Canadian Pacific Railroad.

It is being built at a level that has been topped by only two floods in Davenport history.

The City of Davenport is installing the new ramp inside the stadium\u2019s portable flood wall that was put in place in late March.

The fixes are considered temporary, but Holm suspects they will likely be in place throughout most if not all of remaining games during the 2019 season.

Parking areas west of the stadium remained covered by water Monday but even after waters recede, the newly-elevated railroad tracks will prohibit vehicle access until a new crossing can be constructed on Gaines Street.

The new elevated walkway into the stadium, constructed on top of a sidewalk that runs along the east side of Gaines Street south of its intersection with River Drive, will change access to parking areas north of the stadium.

The entry off of Gaines Street to that lot has been closed and the only entry point for the north lot will be located at the intersection of River Drive and Western Avenue.

\u201cThere will be some changes for fans coming to games and we ask for some patience as we work through it all. This should get us back to playing baseball in the Quad-Cities. It\u2019s been a tough few weeks, but we\u2019ve been taking things as they come,\u2019\u2019 Holm said.

\u201cIt\u2019s been challenging. We\u2019ve all gone from optimistic to disappointed and then back to optimistic again. In the past week, I think we\u2019re finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and we\u2019re excited to have baseball back.\u2019\u2019
