3. Davenport rewriting zoning laws to 'create and form the city we want'

\"Davenport-Aerial-002\"

Davenport as seen in an updated aerial photo. The city is reviewing its zoning use codes and ordinances in an effort to \"create and form the city we want.\"

Davenport officials are on track to rewrite the city\u2019s zoning laws to take effect in January, wrapping up a long-term project that will have spanned nearly two years once complete.

The proposed rules deal with the way the city will classify land use for everything within the city\u2019s boundaries \u2014 including businesses, residences, open land and industrial spaces. City officials have long said the existing law is outdated, pointing to references to blacksmith shops and downtown horse stables as a testament to its age.

Over the last several months, the city has sought input from residents, developers and service providers operating in the city through meetings and one-on-one conversations to help craft the proposed rule change, which applies to roughly 44,000 parcels around Davenport. Among the goals is to clarify the permitted land uses for future development and improve some of the city\u2019s older corridors to \u201ccreate and form the city we want,\u201d said Matt Flynn, the city\u2019s head of the planning and zoning department.

The Iowa Attorney General\u2019s Office has filed a lawsuit against a Davenport man that alleges that his business promised to create and distribute promotional items \u2014 including posters promoting high school sports teams \u2014 but instead defrauded small businesses across the country.

The lawsuit, filed Dec. 4 in Polk County District Court, alleges that Alphonso Barnum; his wife, LaFayia Kay Barnum; his mother, Willie Nance, and several limited liability corporations, including City Wide Promotions, Top Faith Solutions, and New Start Media, violated the Iowa Consumer Fraud Act.

At Hayes Elementary School, the old popcorn ceiling has been replaced with ceiling tiles and new LED lighting in the hallways, shown Dec. 5.

Voters in the Iowa Quad-Cities will weigh in on two major school ballot measures Tuesday. No matter the outcomes, they are sure to shape the future of education in Bettendorf and Iowa.\u00a0

Bettendorf School District is pursuing a General Obligations Bond that is set to go toward athletic facilities, \u201cclassroom modernizations\u201d and new classroom space, while Davenport Community School District is pursuing a Physical Plant and Equipment Levy (PPEL) that, if it were to fail, would put the district\u2019s already strained general fund in even more of a bind.

So what's in each of the proposals, and what can taxpayers expect once the votes are tallied? We have everything you need to know for the Bettendorf and Davenport special school elections. Read more.

6. Camanche woman enjoys herding retro reindeer

If you ever want to buy some vintage, mid-century reindeer and can't find any, blame Terri Seibel. She probably has already bought them all.

Or so it might seem if you visit her Camanche, Iowa, home when it is decorated for the Christmas holidays. Everywhere you look there are decorations, but a preponderance of them \u2014 600, by her daughter's count \u2014 are reindeer. They come in all shapes, sizes, colors and materials. Read more.

Davenport officials are on track to rewrite the city\u2019s zoning laws to take effect in January, wrapping up a long-term project that will have spanned nearly two years once complete.

The proposed rules deal with the way the city will classify land use for everything within the city\u2019s boundaries \u2014 including businesses, residences, open land and industrial spaces. City officials have long said the existing law is outdated, pointing to references to blacksmith shops and downtown horse stables as a testament to its age.

Over the last several months, the city has sought input from residents, developers and service providers operating in the city through meetings and one-on-one conversations to help craft the proposed rule change, which applies to roughly 44,000 parcels around Davenport. Among the goals is to clarify the permitted land uses for future development and improve some of the city\u2019s older corridors to \u201ccreate and form the city we want,\u201d said Matt Flynn, the city\u2019s head of the planning and zoning department.

\u201cI think everybody\u2019s looking for things to be more clear and that goes for staff as well,\u201d Flynn said.

Up until now, city planning and zoning staff members have had to make interpretations in cases where the city code is unclear, Flynn said. A clearer code is also a draw for out-of-town developers who are considering setting up shop in Davenport, he said.

\u201cIf you\u2019re an out-of-town developer, you\u2019ll kind of breathe a sigh of relief knowing that you have up-to-date codes \u2026 versus one that\u2019s old and maybe even tired,\u201d Flynn said.

City officials have also largely relied on Chicago-based planning and zoning consulting firm Camiros, Ltd., which has assisted with code rewrites in Baltimore, New Orleans and Las Vegas. But the proposal that\u2019s before the council is something of an unfinished product, with some aldermen and community members seeking last-minute changes before it goes up for final consideration.

For example, an amendment was made by aldermen last week that applies to the process of allowing duplexes to be approved. Separately, concerns have been raised by nonprofit groups that want a carve out for operating needle exchange centers in more populated parts of the city with the hope that an Iowa law is changed to allow for such use.

Bruce Berger, the city\u2019s director of economic development, has promised council members more changes are likely to come with whatever the city settles on. He said another package of changes could go before the city council in a few months after progress assessments have been made.\u00a0

Zoning experts say the changes will not eliminate requests for rezoning, pointing to the process of city-planning as ever-changing and requiring periodic alterations.

\u201cWhen there are controversial re-zonings, it\u2019s stressful,\u201d Flynn said. \u201cWe get it because it involves people\u2019s homes and their way of life \u2026 we totally get that. The new code is not going to make requests for rezoning go away.\u201d

Bob Inghram, chairman of the city\u2019s planning and zoning board, agreed.

\u201cIt may solve some issues for the foreseeable future,\u201d he said. \u201c\u2026 but there\u2019s always something.\u201d

Concerning the proposed code and the process so far, Inghram says city staff has done an excellent job trying to get the word out and work through potential issues that could arise. He doesn\u2019t expect to see the process changing at all for the commission aside from a slight learning curve that comes with getting used to the new designations under the proposed code.

Davenport aldermen have already presided over three public hearings concerning the rezoning process. The matter goes before the council next for a second round of voting, and it is expected to be discussed for final consideration in January.

Voters in the Iowa Quad-Cities will weigh in on two major school ballot measures Tuesday. The two measures are asking taxpayers for different things\u00a0\u2014 Bettendorf School District is pursuing a General Obligations Bond that is set to go toward athletic facilities, \u201cclassroom modernizations\u201d and new classroom space, while Davenport Community School District is pursuing a Physical Plant and Equipment Levy (PPEL) that, if it were to fail, would put the district\u2019s already strained general fund in even more of a bind.

In Bettendorf, some residents worry that the school district has not been fully transparent in how and when the bond was presented to voters. And in Davenport, recent financial strife in the form of a mandatory $13 million budget cut over the next two fiscal years has made the PPEL essential. If voters don't support the\u00a0levy, those financial challenges will become even more critical.

No matter the election results Tuesday, the two school ballot measures are guaranteed to shape the future of schools in the Iowa Quad-Cities. So what exactly are in the ballot measures, and what can voters expect once the votes are tallied?

How do schools budget?

School funds are divided into \u201cseparate buckets,\u201d said Dallon Christensen, director of finance and business services for Bettendorf. General fund money can technically be used for anything in the school district but \u201cno school district, realistically, is going to do that,\u201d he said.

\u201cEspecially when 80 percent of your general fund is spent on salaries, to go and build anything using general fund money would be very difficult,\u201d Bettendorf Superintendent Mike Raso said. \u201cThat\u2019s why those other pots were brought in, why we have the PPEL and now the sales tax. You just can\u2019t do it with the general fund, with the funding we get.\u201d

Though districts cannot use PPEL dollars toward general fund budgets, the two are not completely unrelated. In Davenport, PPEL dollars have been used to complete projects such as installing LED lighting, which in turns saves money on the electrical bill that is charged through the general fund. According to Dawn Saul, communications and media relations at Davenport, changing the lights has saved the district 30 percent on electrical use.

Claudia Wood, Davenport Chief Financial Officer, said the \u201cdrastic reductions\u201d required by the School Budget Review Committee \u2014 $13 million over the next two fiscal years, because of overspending on its spending authority \u2014 will come out of the spending authority for the general fund.

\u201cNow that we can pay for it out of PPEL, we want to do that because it relieves that expenditure out of the general fund, which is where we need to reduce our expenditures,\u201d she said.

G.O. bonds, like PPEL, are funded by a property levy and go toward the general fund.

In the past three years, Margaret Buckton, a partner at Iowa School Finance Information Services, said the state has seen the number of districts asking for bonds \u201ctick up\u201d because the state-wide penny sales tax is set to expire in 2029.

\u201cBack before we had a local option tax, before 1998, there were 45 to 55 bond elections every year\u00a0\u2014 that\u2019s out of, at that time, probably 370 districts,\u201d she said. \u201cWhen we got the local-option tax, that dropped to about 25. When we got the state-wide penny, 10 to 15 districts per year might call for bonds.\u201d

Of the 29 districts in Iowa to issue bond elections during the 2017-2018 school year, 22 had their proposals approved by voters.

Bettendorf G.O. Bond

While PPEL funds can pay for many of the same things as a G.O. bond, Buckton said there are advantages to pursuing a bond instead.

\u201cYou can do it all at once; with PPEL, it\u2019s piecemeal,\u201d she said. \u201cEspecially today, with fairly low interest rates \u2026 it\u2019s a pretty good time to think about school construction.\u201d

The Bettendorf School District is asking for residents to vote for a general obligation (G.O.) bond for up to $30 million on Tuesday. The bond includes projects intended to \u201crenovate, remodel, improve, furnish and equip\u201d the high school, middle school and Herbert Hoover, Paul Norton and Neil Armstrong elementary schools.

The bond requires a 60 percent supermajority to pass.

Christensen and Superintendent Mike Raso said the estimated timeline for the projects is three to six years, with projects being \u201cphased\u201d by type, location and priority.

But some Bettendorf residents, including Joanna Doerder, are unconvinced that everything on the list of projects is an immediate need.

\u201cIt seems to me that this is a way to get all that they want, right now. It\u2019s very impatient,\u201d she said. \u201cIt\u2019s very pushy on the taxpayer. If given five to eight years, they could probably do the majority of these things with the other taxes they bring in.\u201d

But without the bond, Raso said it would take between 12 and 15 years to accomplish everything on the list.

Athletics\u00a0\u2014 including high school facilities, a pool upgrade and an athletic track and grass field at the middle school\u00a0\u2014 account for 37.8 percent of the current plans for the $30 million bond. Another of Doerder\u2019s concerns was whether the district had been transparent about the bond money going toward athletics.

\u201cI have no concern with any item on the list. I think they are all, and a lot of us think, that everything on this list should absolutely be done, primarily because most of it is maintenance and security,\u201d she said. \u201cEven the athletics facilities, I don\u2019t think, are things that shouldn\u2019t get done. I don\u2019t have an objection to any of them, frankly. What I do have an objection to is just the fact that they\u2019re presenting this as an investment in our kids\u2019 future and their education and it\u2019s really a way to get it all, get it now and get the taxpayers to pay for it immediately.\u201d

Bettendorf is land-locked, so its growth depends on open-enrollment, which Raso said was \u201chuge\u201d for the district, and that the district needs to stay \u201ccompetitive.\u201d

\u201cAs new families move into the area, they\u2019re looking not only at our educational system, but maybe it comes down to a gym, or a fine arts program, or even a particular program,\u201d he said.

One item on the list\u00a0\u2014 more secure entrances at Herbert Hoover and Paul Norton Elementary Schools\u00a0\u2014 will be happening \u201ceven without the bond.\u201d

\u201cThose will be done whether the bond is passed or not,\u201d Raso said. \u201cIf the bond is passed, it will allow us to do more things in those buildings that are more connected to the front entrance.\u201d

The district already approved to borrow $10 million over 10 years against the sales tax revenue to complete replacing the high school\u2019s HVAC, and to construct Grant Wood and Mark Twain elementaries.

\u201cTo do the rest of the projects, and to do them in a shorter period of time, the general obligation bond helps do that,\u201d Raso said.

The district recently completed the construction of Grant Wood Elementary, and broke ground on another new elementary school, Mark Twain. Both were funded through sales taxes; Grant Wood came in under budget at $13.7 million, below the original price tag of $16.7 million.

Bettendorf initially planned to renovate the existing Thomas Jefferson Elementary, but Raso said since those renovations were going to cost around $9 million, the board decided to build a new elementary school\u00a0\u2014\u00a0Mark Twain\u00a0\u2014 instead.

\u201cIn the long term, it was just the better investment,\u201d Raso said.

At the community forum Nov. 27, several attendees questioned whether everything on the list was a \u201cneed.\u201d But others, including Doerder, readily acknowledge that everything on the school\u2019s list of projects is necessary. They just question whether a G.O. bond is the right way to fund it.

\u201cI think we need them all,\u201d Raso said. \u201cIf we didn\u2019t, I don\u2019t think it should be up there.\u201d

If you ever want to buy some vintage, mid-century reindeer and can't find any, blame Terri Seibel.

She has already bought them all.

Or so it might seem if you visit her Camanche, Iowa, home when it is decorated for the Christmas holidays. Everywhere you look there are decorations, but a preponderance of them \u2014 600, by her daughter's count \u2014 are reindeer. They come in all shapes, sizes, colors and materials.

The counting begins outside where nine painted plywood deer pull Santa's sleigh across the front yard.

Inside, Seibel has arranged groupings of different reindeer types throughout the first floor. On a foyer table, for example, there's a collection of nine pink reindeer, backed by bottle trees. \"Pink is a rare color,\" Seibel said. \"You don't see pink anymore.\"

Also rare is turquoise. You'll find two of those on a bathroom counter.

On a table in the living room stand eight deer that look as though they were cut out of sheet metal and painted white, embellished with mercury glass beads. Seibel doesn't know if these are handmade or if they were manufactured.

Husband Brad, who joins her in her collecting hobby, thinks the cutting is too precise to be homemade, but on the other hand, the family has never found anything similar on eBay or other internet sites, and they certainly have looked.

Most of Seibel's reindeer \u2014 and other decorations, for that matter \u2014 are retro pieces from the 1950s and '60s, the years when she was growing up. \"I want the stuff that I had in my house and what was in the stores like Ben Franklin and Woolworth when I was little,\" she said. \"It brings me back home.\"

Her collecting began early; she'd go with her parents to the Salvation Army thrift store, for example, and while her dad hunted for old clocks and her mom picked up books, Seibel \"gravitated to Christmas items.\"

As an adult, she \"was going to garage sales before people were going to garage sales,\" she said. She also frequents estate sales, auctions and flea markets and makes purchases online. \"It's just fun,\" she said. \"It's the hunt.\"

When she started, she bought most items for a nickel, dime or a quarter. Nowadays, many items sell for much more, if one can find them at all.

\"They're very hard to find now,\" she said of retro decorations in general.

Because she has so many reindeer by now, she is especially happy to find the unusual. Like a small fuzzy green deer holding salt and pepper shakers, or a Rudolph head whose nose lights up.

\"They are so silly and quirky,\" she said. \"They make me happy.\"

The home's dining room is painted red and the breakfast room green, both to provide complementary backdrops for the Christmas decorations.

The breakfast room also has a poinsettia tablecloth, chair covers that look like Santa hats and year-round curtains that are red (well, really more like watermelon) and green.

And there are reindeer everywhere: standing on the windowsill, on the table, in a cabinet. And two nearly life-size papier mach\u00e9 faces that Terri believes were part of a store display hang on the wall.

\"They always put a smile on your face,\" Terri said.

Honors for Sam Brincks and Gary Dolphin, a walk-on kicker commits to Iowa and George Kittle does all sorts of George Kittle things in the NFL, it’s been a busy weekend at the Hawkeye 10@10.

Your daily dose of Iowa football news and notes is delivered in-season each weekday at 10 a.m. at Hawkmania.com, your home for all things Iowa.

Here is today\u2019s Hawkeye 10@10:

1. The hype doesn\u2019t exactly match the Heisman, but Iowa defensive lineman Sam Brincks will learn today if he the winner of the Piesman Trophy, presented by the website SB Nation to \u201clinemen who do un-lineman-like things\u2019\u2019 during the course of the season.

\"111018-Iowa-Football-025\"

Iowa's Sam Brincks puts an arm up to block the pass by Northwestern quarterback Clayton Thorson, Saturday, November 10, 2018, during first half action at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City.

Brincks is one of five finalists for the award.

He is being honored for his over-the-shoulder touchdown catch on a fake field goal the Hawkeyes successfully executed against Penn State. The 6-foot-5, 260-pound senior gave Iowa a 12-0 lead with his score.

2. Iowa held its annual awards banquet Sunday and among the honorees was long-time Iowa play-by-play voice Gary Dolphin.

\"Gary

Dolphin

He was presented the Distinguished Service Award by Iowa coaches for his work for Learfield Sports and the Iowa radio network.

Dolphin was selected as the recipient of the award before his recent \u201chot mic\u2019\u2019 comments he thought were off air led to a two-game suspension for broadcasting Iowa basketball games.

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz praised Dolphin\u2019s work in presenting him the award.

\u201cGary is not only a nationally respected broadcaster, he is a tireless ambassador for Iowa football here in our state and across the country,\u2019\u2019 Ferentz said. \u201cRight after the Nebraska game, our coaches came together and unanimously selected Dolph as the recipient of this year\u2019s award. No one bleeds black and gold more than Gary Dolphin and this is our opportunity to say thank you.\u2019\u2019

3. For the second time in four years, underclassmen swept MVP honors on the Iowa football team. Junior defensive back Amani Hooker and sophomore tight end T.J. Hockenson shared the Roy J. Carver Most Valuable Player Award.

\"Amani

Hooker

\"TJ

Hockenson

The last set of underclassmen to split the award were C.J. Beathard and Desmond King in 2015.

4. T.J. Hockenson could add to his collection of all-American honors today.

The Associated Press and the Football Writers Association of America are both scheduled to release their all-American teams today.

Hockenson was named a second team all-American last week by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

5. Among the issues Iowa will face in the Outback Bowl against Mississippi State is a mobile quarterback.

\"Mississippi
Mississippi State

The Bulldogs\u2019 Nick Fitzgerald has topped 1,000 rushing yards this season.

\u201cAt first glimpse, it looks like a lot of what they do runs through the quarterback,\u2019\u2019 Iowa free safety Jake Gervase said. \u201cWe\u2019ve seen a couple of guys like that this season, but he\u2019s a threat to run, so we know we\u2019ll be dealing with that over the next few weeks.\u2019\u2019

6. Iowa added a kicker as a preferred walk-on to its 2019 recruiting class over the weekend.

Iowa Hawkeyes logo

Mary Junck, longtime leader of Davenport-based Lee Enterprises, Inc., plans to transition from executive chairman after the annual shareholders meeting in February 2019 and will continue as chairman of the board of directors.

The change in responsibilities will complete a transition plan that included the advancement of Kevin Mowbray to president and chief executive officer in 2016.

As executive chairman since then, Junck has served as an adviser to the CEO and continued to guide Lee\u2019s overall strategy and direction. As chairman, she will provide leadership for the board of directors and lead projects as requested by the board and the CEO.

Junck, 71, joined Lee in 1999 as executive vice president and chief operating officer. She became president in 2000, chief executive in 2001 and chairman in 2002.

Under her leadership, Lee has grown from publishing 18 daily newspapers into an industry-leading provider of print and digital local news, information and advertising in 49 markets in 21 states.

In July, Lee also began managing Berkshire Hathaway\u2019s BH Media operations in 30 markets.

\u201cThe Board of Directors is deeply grateful for Mary\u2019s strategic guidance during this transition,\u201d said Herb Moloney, lead independent director. \u201cIn the last three years, she has been a very positive resource for Lee managers, and her strategic involvement led to the innovative management agreement with BH Media. With her extraordinary leadership, we expect to keep Lee fully in the forefront of the industry\u2019s transformation.\u201d

The 2019 Lee annual meeting of shareholders is scheduled for February 20 in Davenport.

Lee's markets include St. Louis, Missouri; Lincoln, Nebraska; Madison, Wisconsin; the Quad-Cities of Iowa-Illinois; Billings, Montana; Bloomington, Illinois; and Tucson, Arizona.

Lee also operates TownNews.com, a state-of-the-art provider of digital media services for more than 1,700 news organizations in the United States and Canada.

Lee Common Stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol LEE.

Some kids struggled to hide behind their parents Sunday as Krampus stalked around Christkindlmarkt Quad Cities just outside of the Freight House. But not Moses Nissley.

The 5-year-old Tipton boy proudly posed with the towering half-goat, half-demon figure while his mother, Jennifer, snapped some photos.

His brother, Jaxon, 7, on the other hand, wanted nothing to do with Krampus, but all Moses could do was giggle.

Polar-opposite reactions to Krampus like theirs were quite common throughout the whole of the new Christkindlmarkt Quad Cities, a traditional open-air holiday market that took place Saturday and Sunday to celebrate the community's historic relationship with Kaiserslautern, Germany, according to its website, christkindlmarktqc.com.

Thankfully, the demented, horned character stuck to photos and storytimes throughout the weekend, and shied away from punishing wicked children as he does in centuries-old legends.

About 10 years ago, the Quad-Cities had a similar market, which was a sort of international holiday fair, said event co-chair Sarah Mullins, adding that Christkindlmarkt Quad Cities is kind of a \u201crebirth\u201d of that event. Mullins is associated with Davenport Sister Cities, which is part of an international network that works to advance cultural awareness, exposure and exchange.

The group partnered with Davenport's German American Heritage Center to host the Christkindlmarkt in conjunction with other area sponsors, including the Freight House Farmers Market and the city of Davenport, Mullins said.

\u201cWe thought this area really was ready for it and excited about it,\u201d Mullins said. \u201cWe (Davenport Sister Cities) actually looked at the German American Heritage Center initially as a partner,\u201d she said. \u201cAnd so this is the year, we decided.\u201d

Planning began about a year ago, Mullins said, adding that organizers visited similar events in Des Moines and Chicago to get prepared.

And it was a \"huge success,\u201d she said.

Between the outdoor market and the indoor Freight House merchants, the event included some 45 vendors offering everything from German goods and jewelry to hand-painted gourds and Christmas trees, plus the standard farmers market fare. There was live music, including holiday favorites and traditional tunes, as well as live artist demonstrations.

\u201cWe've had the wool spinner ... spinning all weekend; we've got a clock maker over here working on cuckoo clocks; we\u2019ve got a slate carver and a wood turner,\u201d Mullins said.

As a first-time event, it was not \u201cwithout some trials,\u201d she said. \u201cThe sheer numbers of people who came out (Saturday) were so overwhelming to us. We had 4,000 people here I think before 1 (p.m.), and I was making Gl\u00fchwein (a warm, spiced wine drink), and I could not stay on top of it,\u201d she said.

A heater went out; the group ran out of commemorative mugs Saturday morning; and some vendors left early because they sold out of their items.

Mullins said at least 8,000 people visited the market throughout the weekend, and next year, the crew will be better prepared for the crowd.

\u201cPeople have really just surrounded us and supported us, and it's been really good. The Quad-Cities always comes out,\u201d she said.

Throughout the market on Sunday, people were buying Christmas trees and ornaments; noshing on bratwursts, schnitzel and sauerkraut from food trucks; and enjoying German beers, mulled cider, hot chocolate and more.

Children happily ran between the Freight House's outdoor playground and the KinderHaus children's tent, which offered traditional German tales; crafts such as making an Alpine hat; and appearances by Sankt Nikolaus (Saint Nicholas), Christkind (the \u201cChrist child\u201d) and, of course, Krampus, or as Prophetstown's Zach Cameron called him, \u201cSatan Claus.\u201d

Cameron came out with his wife, Amy, and son, Ashton, 12, to enjoy the day.

\u201cIt was something different. They haven't been to one before,\u201d he said.

Amy said she read about the event on Facebook.

\u201cIt turned out to be a nice day for it,\u201d Cameron said. \u201cIt worked out well.\u201d

While Ashton didn't get his photo taken with Krampus, \u201che shook his hand,\u201d Cameron said.

Nearby, Krampus lurked. He carried a bouquet of sticks in one hand, ominously smacking against each other.

\u201cThose sticks are for you,\u201d Cameron teased Ashton.

\u201cI like getting out and supporting the smaller businesses and stuff,\u201d Cameron said, adding that the family enjoys coming to the Freight House Farmers Market, too.

Other attendees echoed his sentiment.

\u201cWe just wanted to check it out,\u201d said Melissa Blank, of Tipton, who came to the market with her husband, Adam, and children Rosie, 5, and Thatcher, 2.

\u201cWe've never seen this. My parents just went to one in Chicago, and they had a good time, so we wanted to see what was going on.\u201d

The family giggled when Krampus approached. An outstretched claw waved toward Thatcher, who ducked behind his dad.

\u201cThe kids were a little afraid, but it's OK,\u201d Blank said, giggling. \u201cIt's nice just to get a reason to get out, especially in the winter when everybody's kind of stuck inside.\u201d

Mullins said organizers soon would be ready to work on next year's event. She said folks already are interested in attending or performing, and organizers will be looking for more sponsors and volunteers to pull it all off. It has been a learning experience for all involved, she said, but she's proud of what they put together.

\u201cWe'll definitely be restructuring a little bit for next year,\u201d she said, \u201cbut I think that this is absolutely (an) event that is going to grow.\u201d

Two underclassmen who were named the best players in the Big Ten in their position groups were named Sunday as the Roy J. Carver Most Valuable Players on the 2018 Iowa football team.

Junior defensive back Amani Hooker and sophomore tight end T.J. Hockenson received that recognition Sunday when the Hawkeyes held their annual awards banquet, the first set of underclassmen to be honored since C.J. Beathard and Desmond King shared the award in 2015.

A Minneapolis native who played strong safety and outside linebacker, Hooker shared the team lead with four interceptions, broke up a team-leading seven passes, was second on the team with 59 tackles and recorded 3.5 tackles for a loss during the regular season.

Hokenson, who last week won the Mackey Award as the nation\u2019s best tight end, led Iowa with 46 receptions covering 717 yards during the regular season. The Chariton, Iowa, native caught six touchdown passes and rushed for a seventh score.

Three seniors, defensive back Jake Gervase, defensive end Parker Hesse and offensive lineman Keegan Render, and junior quarterback Nate Stanley were named as the permanent captains for the 2018 season.

Gervase, a senior free safety from Davenport Assumption who led Iowa with 83 tackles, intercepted three passes and broke up three more passes, received several honors during the banquet.

He joined Hesse and Render in receiving the Hayden Fry Award, which is presented to team members who show exemplary leadership and dedication throughout the year.

Gervase was also among four Hawkeyes to receive the Brett Greenwood Award, joining defensive tackle Sam Brincks, receiver Nick Easley and kicker Miguel Recinos. Like the Pleasant Valley alum whose name the award carries, all four arrived at Iowa as walk-ons and developed into team leaders at their positions.

Since its inception in 2011, four former Hawkeyes who competed prior to Greenwood\u2019s career but followed the same path from walk-on to scholarship athlete are also honored annually as Brett Greenwood Award recipients.

This year\u2019s winners included Sam Brownlee, Andy Fenstermaker, Zach Gabelmann and Devan Moylan. Gabelmann, from Bettendorf, competed as a linebacker at Iowa from 2003-06.

Hesse received the Forest Evashevski Scholastic Achievement Award, presented to a senior with the highest scholastic record, and the Iron Hawk Award, while Recinos shared the Reggie Roby Special Teams Award with return specialists Ihmir Smith-Marsette and Kyle Groeneweg.

Senior offensive lineman Dalton Ferguson and senior defensive tackle Matt Nelson shared comeback player of the year recognition after overcoming significant injuries in their career, while linebacker Jack Hockaday, fullback Austin Kelly and defensive back Geno Stone shared the Next Man In Award.

Coaches Appreciation Award recipients included senior guard Ross Reynolds and sophomore receiver Brandon Smith on offense, Hesse, Hooker and sophomore defensive end A.J. Epenesa on defense and juniors John Milani and Amani Jones on special teams.

Team Hustle Awards were presented to Groeneweg, Hockenson and running back Toren Young on offense, Hesse, Matt Nelson, ends Anthony Nelson and Chauncey Golston on defense and junior Devonte Young on special teams.

Team Leader Awards were given to junior quarterback Ryan Schmidt and freshman fullback Monte Potteaum on offense, lineman Austin Schulte and linebacker Colton Dinsdale on defense and freshmen Terry Roberts and Mike Timm on special teams.

Iowa also honored several individuals for their support of the program.

Mary and Brian Lohse of Bondurant, Iowa, received the Player Appreciation Award for the support the Lohse Family Foundation has given the Kinnick Edge Campaign as well as the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the Child and Adolescent Psychology programs at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children\u2019s Hospital.

Former Iowa quarterback Chuck Hartlieb was presented the Bump Elliott Appreciation Award and long-time Iowa play-by-play broadcaster Gary Dolphin received the 2018 Distinguished Service Award.

Coach Kirk Ferentz described Dolphin as \u201ca tireless ambassador for Iowa football here in our state and across the country,\u2019\u2019 saying coaches selected him following the final game of the regular season because \u201cno one bleeds black and gold more than Gary Dolphin and this is our opportunity to say thank you.\u2019\u2019

Freshly hired by Mississippi State as its new football coach, Joe Moorhead liked what he saw while observing practices before a bowl game a year ago.

After working with the Bulldogs in the spring, he was convinced the Mississippi State defense had a chance to be \"something special.\"

Moorhead used those words when talking about the potential he saw in his team\u2019s defense during a July interview with the SEC Network.

Today, Iowa coaches are working to figure out how to deal with an opposing defense in the Outback Bowl that has lived up to the preseason expectations of its first-year coach.

\"When you see their defense is rated ahead of Alabama, it catches your eye,\" Hawkeye coach Kirk Ferentz said Thursday when he joined Moorhead at a bowl contract signing event at Raymond James Stadium, the site of the New Year\u2019s Day match-up between Iowa and Mississippi State.

Iowa\u2019s challenge in the 11 a.m. game at Raymond James Stadium begins dealing with a defense that has dominated statistically throughout the Bulldogs\u2019 8-4 season.

Mississippi State leads the nation in scoring defense, surrendering 12 points per game.

The Bulldogs held seven of their opponents to their lowest point total of the season, frustrating offenses of six bowl qualifiers including top-ranked Alabama.

Opponents have scored only 12 touchdowns in 12 games against the Mississippi State defense, seven fewer than the next-best defense in the nation.

The Bulldogs have the only defense in the country which has not allowed a play from scrimmage of 50 yards or more this season.

Mississippi State has given up 26 plays of 25 yards or more, but that also ranks as the fewest allowed by a defense in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

Those numbers illustrate the challenge that awaits the Hawkeyes as they prepare for an opponent that has adjusted to a new coaching staff this season after Dan Mullen left to become the head coach at Florida.

Moorhead is no stranger to Iowa.

He was the offensive coordinator at Penn State in 2016-17, calling the shots for the Nittany Lions in their 41-14 win over the Hawkeyes in 2016 and in Penn State\u2019s 21-19 walk-off win at Kinnick Stadium in 2017.

\"I\u2019ve had the opportunity to coach against Iowa the last two years, and coach Ferentz\u2019s program is a model of consistency,\" Moorhead said. \"They play good defense, have an excellent quarterback and a great tight end. This is a match-up of two good teams.\"

Moorhead views his hiring of Bob Shoop as the Bulldogs\u2019 defensive coordinator as a critical component to his team\u2019s success.

Like Moorhead, Shoop worked under James Franklin at Penn State, although they did not work together there.

Franklin hired Shoop as his defensive coordinator at Vanderbilt in 2011, and he followed Franklin to the Big Ten in 2014, working two seasons at Penn State before taking on the same role at Tennessee in 2016.

He spent two seasons with the Volunteers before joining Moorhead at Mississippi State a year ago.

Moorhead and Shoop inherited a veteran group that Moorhead found a lot to like about even before he began to work with them.

\"I was observing their bowl practices last year, and what I saw was a very competitive group that was willing to work hard, practice hard and showed me then that they were willing to do what it took to win,\" Moorhead said.

The Bulldogs defense starts up front where a pair of NFL prospects, end Montez Sweat and tackle Jeffery Simmons, were named last week as first-team all-Southeastern Conference selections for a second straight year.

Sweat leads the SEC with 11 sacks among his 13.5 tackles for a loss while Simmons leads the Bulldogs with 14.5 tackles for a loss.

Mississippi State shifted from a 3-4 to a 4-3 defensive alignment this season under Shoop, although not unlike Iowa, the Bulldogs have played a 4-2-5 look more frequently as the season progressed.

The use of a safety in place of a linebacker \u2014 something Iowa has done against spread attacks with Big Ten defensive back of the year Amani Hooker \u2014 has been effective in creating a defensive edge for Mississippi State.

Shoop uses the so-called \"star\" position to blitz out of frequently at a spot where injuries have led to opportunities for three players. Johnathan Abram has filled the position after Brian Cole suffered a season-ending shoulder injury and Jaquarius Landrews was sidelined by an ankle problem.

Abram earned second-team all-conference honors after recording 7.5 tackles for a loss, 2.5 sacks, five pass break ups, two interceptions, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery this season.

Both Sweat and Abram are ranked by ESPN\u2019s Todd McShay as top-30 prospects for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Collectively, they have helped Mississippi State\u2019s defense improve over a year ago when it allowed a respectable 20.9 points per game.

\"For them to be able to elevate their level of production and performance, I had high expectations, but in a lot of ways they have probably exceeded my expectation level,\" Moorhead said. \"That is hard to do, because we have very high standards.\"

Zina Ellis, a 25-year-old Moline native, has made a theatrical dream come true by earning a key role in a national tour of the musical \u201cCinderella\u201d and winning critical raves in the process.

The New York-based singer, actor and 2015 Yale graduate is the Fairy Godmother in the updated 2013 version of the Rodgers & Hammerstein show. The tour, which began in Milwaukee last month, comes to the University of Illinois\u2019 State Farm Center in Champaign at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 16.

\u201cI\u2019m very excited and very happy,\u201d Ellis said.

The third national tour of the fairy tale, featuring the Tony-winning costumes of six-time winner William Ivey Long, is running through April. Ellis is the third African-American to be cast in the role originated by Victoria Clark, who is white, on Broadway.

The production originally starred Laura Osnes in the title role and Santino Fontana as the Prince and ran 770 performances. It was nominated for nine Tony Awards, winning one for best costumes.

Ellis said she was a Yale student when she first saw it in New York.

\u201cI loved it. It was delightful,\u201d she said. \u201cIt was so fun, so cute. I never thought I\u2019d be in it. It\u2019s delightful, a full-circle moment for sure.\u201d

She auditioned for the tour last June and thought she\u2019d be considered for one of the stepsisters and they would cast an older women as Fairy Godmother. When she got her final callback, she searched online and saw a good sign: the girl in the part in the previous tour looked a lot like her.

A BroadwayWorld.com review of a recent show in San Jose, California, said the fresh new book by Douglas Carter Beane for the musical contains “some social satire and feminist moxie.” It also re-thinks the Fairy Godmother as a woman who undergoes profound change from poverty to glittering magic, including an amazing costume change without leaving the stage.

\u201cZina Ellis is wonderful as the homeless-woman-turned-fairy-godmother, her soaring soprano as impressive as her magical costume transformations,\u201d the review states.

Another on theaterbythebay.com said Ellis is resplendent in the role. “Ellis’ voice alone would be enough to make her stand out, but her performance is equally good.”

\u201cThe Fairy Godmother is usually glamorous from the beginning, but this one, they wanted to give this character a back story,\u201d Ellis said. \u201cSo you have a better understanding of why did she decide to help Ella.

\u201cShe disguises herself as someone who a lot of people might write off,\u201d she said.

\u201cCinderella is kind to her, respectful; other people aren\u2019t. She decides this is a girl who deserves to have this magic, have this opportunity, a girl who can make most of this opportunity.\u201d

The inspirational message for audiences is to \u201ctreat people well,\u201d she said, \u201ca lot of paying it forward, using what you have, your influence to help others.

\u201cMy character might not look like the fairy godmother when you see her, but it\u2019s really cool,\u201d Ellis said. \u201cI geek out about it.\u201d

On Nov. 10, her Moline mom, Thea, and a group from her church, Christ Family Church in Davenport, came to see Ellis open in Milwaukee. Thea saw it there twice and, soon after, again in Ames. She plans to see Ellis in it in Champaign, then over the Christmas holiday when the show plays in Boston Dec. 18 to 30, for 16 performances.

\u201cIt is perfect; everything was perfect,\u201d Thea said of the show, sharing that she cried when she saw her only child in it for the first time.

\u201cThe feeling is so consuming, that she was getting to do what she really wants to do, enjoying it and doing it well,\u201d Thea said.

She said about 20 people from the Quad-Cities made the drive to Milwaukee to see \u201cCinderella.\u201d \u201cWe have some very loving and supportive people in our circle,\u201d she said. \u201cThey just love her to death.\u201d

She said the positive reviews confirm her confidence in her daughter\u2019s talent, abundant since she starred as Marian the librarian in Moline High School production of \u201cThe Music Man.\u201d

Last January, Zina Ellis brought her one-hour cabaret, \u201cLegally Black,\u201d to Augustana College. It\u2019s based on her Yale senior thesis; her mom also saw it at Yale.

\u201cIt really expressed who she was as an artist; she was influenced by women in my family,\u201d her mother said. \u201cShe was talking about women of color in theater. I never beat her over the head about experiences of African-Americans in other times. The way she portrayed different roles, different songs, she was digging deep in her DNA.\u201d

With Christmas just 15 days away, hopefully you have your shopping completed, or at least close to being done.

Christmas and New Year\u2019s bring the joys of good food, time with family and friends and the challenges of staying active. Every year, it seems that the time from Thanksgiving to New Year\u2019s flies by. These next two weeks until Christmas will move at mach speed. As you prepare for the holiday festivities ahead, it doesn\u2019t hurt to put together a game plan to have an idea of what your priorities will be during this time.

My recommendations to navigating the holidays are below.

1. Focus on family. If you\u2019ve trained for any events over the last year, you\u2019ve probably had to sacrifice some time with loved ones. If there is a Christmas or New Year\u2019s tradition in your family, that should be your focus. Missing a run or two to keep your loved ones happy isn\u2019t going to break your training cycle. Appreciate and enjoy time with your loved ones while you can. There is never a guarantee of a tomorrow or next Christmas, so enjoy your time with them!

2. Be flexible with your runs. If you plan on staying active during the holidays, you will probably need to be a little flexible around family gatherings. The old saying \u201csomething is better than nothing\u201d is true here. Donning the headlamp and heading out early or late might be the best opportunity to not create a conflict with a gathering. You might also have to cut your run short to get something in. As always, it doesn\u2019t hurt to run your plans by the boss (significant other) to make sure everyone is on the same page.

This past week, Costco announced it was committed to restricting the use of antibiotics in its meat and poultry products.

On Friday, Costco Wholesale\u00a0\u2014 which opened a Davenport location this year\u00a0\u2014 announced it updated its animal welfare standards to include a policy on the responsible use of antibiotics. \"Medically important\" antibiotics will be allowed for therapeutic uses only, according to a news release, and under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian.\u00a0

The new restrictions will affect the company's new chicken processing facility under construction in Nebraska, among other facilities.\u00a0

According to the release, As You Sow filed a shareholder proposal with Costco this summer, listing the harmful impacts of using antibiotics in raising animals for meat. The World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have studied the harmful effects of antibiotics in meat.

\"We are particularly encouraged by the company\u2019s plans to create mechanisms through which they will be able to verify supplier compliance with their antibiotics policy,\" said Christy Spees, environmental health program manager at As You Sow. \"This is a significant undertaking, and one that we hope will cause a ripple of change in the meat industry and set a standard for other retail chains.\"

The overuse and misuse of antibiotics in animal agriculture is recognized by the CDC and WHO as a significant contributor to the problem of antibiotic resistance, according to the release.

Lately, investors investors are more often pouring their money into companies they can stand behind, according to\u00a0Quad-City financial adviser Brian Ramsay.\u00a0

Sustainable investing\u00a0\u2014 or considering environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors when investing\u00a0\u2014 has grown increasingly common. That means several investors are prioritizing how companies respond to climate change, manage resources and supply chains, or other responsibility factors.\u00a0

\"Clients have been making it known they're conscious of the environment, or making sure they aren't investing in tobacco or firearms, things like that,\" said Ramsay, with WealthSpan Partners in Davenport. \"Some people flat-out request they want me to build them a socially conscious portfolio.\"\u00a0

The Wall Street Journal reported, for example, after the U.S. withdrew from the Paris climate accord, investors moved more money into sustainable funds. Similar trends have taken place after mass shootings.\u00a0

Ramsay said sustainability is becoming an increasingly important factor in companies' successes. And, for individuals, investing money in companies that align with certain values can prove, \"your money is your vote.\"\u00a0

Here is some of his advice on sustainable investing.\u00a0

Start with socially responsible funds

While it's important to research companies on your own, investing in sustainable funds is a good place to start, Ramsay said.\u00a0

There are hundreds of ESG funds\u00a0that offer diversification and an evaluation of a company's records. Socially conscious funds often do the vetting for you, plus offer a shareholder screening or voting process, he said.

Some funds allow investors to put their money toward certain causes, such as supporting clean energy, avoiding contributing to the weapons industry or prioritizing gender diversity on boards of directors.\u00a0

The focus of investing depends on the individual, Ramsay said. But, like with any investing, it's important to stay diversified.\u00a0

Understand the risk

ESG investing is on the rise, as is the profitability of companies holding themselves to sustainable standards, according to Forbes.\u00a0

But Ramsay said investors need to understand the risk.\u00a0

\"They need to understand the risks involved,\" he said. \"The biggest thing here is proof of a fund's performance. Is your money actually making a difference in social responsibility and the initiatives that companies are taking?\"\u00a0

It's important to screen funds for performance, to target funds with strong returns and sustainability ratings. Plus, he advises regularly monitoring funds on your own or with a financial adviser.\u00a0

Investing in smaller sustainable companies, or even a clean energy fund, can be risky, he said, because they're not always as profitable as other mutual funds. He said investing in causes you care about might mean \"giving up a little bit of performance to make change.\"

\"It's tough to prove whether or not a company will make more money, but what has been noticed is because of this wave of socially responsible investing, more of your money is actually causing change,\" Ramsay said. \"When the country gets together and invests in funds that focus on climate change and gender equality and things like that, their investment dollars are forcing change.\"\u00a0

We all recognize that hot weather will increase our dog\u2019s water intake, and we take steps to make sure an unlimited supply is available during the warmer months of the year.

But as winter sets in, we should be just as diligent to ensure adequate intake, and we should make sure dogs have access and don't encounter frozen water bowls.

Pet owners should know what a normal daily water requirement is and what factors might increase that. Here is a guide for minimum water intake for adult dogs in normal environments and activity levels:

\u2022 10 pound dog, 14 ounces of water per day.

\u2022 20 pound dog, 23 ounces of water per day.

\u2022 40 pound dog, 39 ounces of water per day.

\u2022 60 pound dog, 50 ounces of water per day.

\u2022 80 pound dog, 63 ounces of water per day.

\u2022 100 pound dog, 75 ounces of water per day.

This guide illustrates that small dogs and smaller pets in general have an increased need on a pound per pound basis than a 100-pound Chesapeake Bay retriever!

Puppies will require even more fluids per pound of body weight and, for this reason, they are highly susceptible to dehydration when sick. The increased surface area of smaller pets versus their weight in pounds dictates this necessity.

Fever, panting, exercise and higher outside temperatures will drastically increase water requirements. In fact, a sudden change in water consumption can signal disease such as diabetes or kidney diseases.

Conscientious owners should also be aware that dehydration can set in even more rapidly with these issues \u2014 especially in young pets \u2014 if inadequate intake occurs.

Pet owners should keep in mind that the quantities listed above are minimums, not the amount your pet should have available when faced with any of these difficulties. The best bet is a bottomless bowl when thirst strikes your pet.

In fact, your pet\u2019s hydration status and water needs should be discussed with your veterinarian at every visit. Research suggests that cats, as indoor confined pets, historically have been shortchanged with fluids and the addition of more fluid intake can treat and perhaps prevent some common diseases.

Always discuss your pet\u2019s water intake with your veterinarian at every appointment and mention any change in their consumption.

Sixteen windows from a 100-year-old Rock Island house were restored and weatherized last weekend during a window \"boot camp\" taught by historic preservationist Bob Yapp of Hannibal, Missouri.

The camp was conducted on behalf of Bill Rowand who, with his wife Wendy have been rehabbing a house on 23rd Street. A serious health issue has forced Rowand to step back, so Yapp, a friend from when he lived in Rock Island, stepped up to help.

Yapp volunteered his time to teach the boot camp class \u2014 that's what he does for a living \u2014 and 17 people from around the Quad-Cities as well as Michigan, Wisconsin and Kentucky came to learn how to rehab original, double-hung wood windows by actually doing the work. Some also were motivated by the desire to help out.

Yapp lived in the Quad-Cities from 1991 to 2003, rehabbing numerous houses, including several high-profile projects in the Broadway Historic District of Rock Island.

He now operates the Belvedere School for Hands-On Preservation in Missouri.

The Rock Island Historic Preservation Commission, the Broadway Historic District Neighborhood Association and Preservation Resources, Inc., provided sponsorship and Theo's Java Club and Dunkin' Donuts provided discounted breakfasts and lunches.

The house the Rowands are rehabbing is next door to their own. It had been vacant for about eight years when they bought it through a tax sale in October 2017.

The purchase was a way to protect the investment in their own home. They are rehabbing with plans to rent it out as an Airbnb targeted to families of students at Augustana College. They hope to finish by the end of the year.

Students working over the weekend learned sash removal, safe paint and glass removal, architectural epoxy repairs, glazing putty application, priming, painting, weather-stripping and sash re-installation that includes re-roping the sash weights.

After sitting through an extended delay, a sluggish start cost the Quad-City Storm Saturday night.

The Storm's game against the Huntsville Havoc was delayed an hour and 19 minutes due to unsafe ice conditions caused during a transition between events at the TaxSlayer Center.

Once the game got going, the Storm gave up two goals in the first 2:33 en route to a 3-2 shootout loss to the defending Southern Professional Hockey League champion Havoc.

Christian Powers scored the only goal of the shootout to give Huntsville the win.

\"We came out very, very sloppy, myself included,\" goaltender Eric Levine said. \"We were just running all over, not picking guys up and I was very scrambly. You can't spot two goals to the defending champs.

\"It's mentally hard to stay engaged, and I think it was about the team that was going to come out and play more offense than try to play defense.\"

Huntsville scored just 57 seconds into the game when John Schiavo buried a pass from Sy Nutkevitch past Levine.

The Havoc quickly made it 2-0 when a weak shot from Ryan Salkeld slid past the pads of Levine, who was down on the ice after a scramble behind the net.

\"You try and stay focused as much as you can but you're in a half-hour delay, then a 45, then an hour ... you've got guys putting gear on, taking gear off but obviously we can't use that as an excuse,\" forward Taylor McCloy said. \"We came out flat and that's on us.\"

To their credit, the Storm battled back to force overtime and earn a point, moving into a tie with the Pensacola Ice Flyers for eighth place in the league standings.

Levine rallied with 48 saves as the Storm were outshot 51-32 in the game.

\"It's just the want factor that I'm really upset about with my team right now,\" head coach Dave Pszenyczny said. \"Even in the shootout, you could see ... it's just the fact of, when you have a game tied with 16 shots on net, that kind of tells you something, so keep shooting, keep doing the little things. It seems to me we have guys that don't want the puck and are looking for someone else to get the job done for them.\"

Joe McKeown put the Storm on the board with his fifth goal of the season at 6:10 in the second period. Seconds after Huntsville killed off a Storm power play, McKeown picked the puck up along the boards and beat Havoc goaltender Max Milosek with a shot just under the crossbar.

The Storm looked to have tied the game later in the period, only for a call to go against Quad-City. Following a big save from Levine on Colton Wolter, Taylor McCloy got behind a Havoc defenseman for what looked like a breakaway goal. Referee Kevin Corbett whistled McCloy for tripping, negating the goal and sending the Storm to the penalty kill.

\"Obviously I don't think that was the call, you saw it on the Jumbotron afterward,\" McCloy said. \"The fans didn't agree, whether that's biased or not, but I didn't touch him, I know I didn't. He dove for the puck and tried to get it, he missed and I scored. You can't blame anything on that, we gave up a two-goal lead right off the start and put ourselves behind the 8-ball.\"

Pszenyczny also vehemently disagreed with the call, his voice hoarse following the game.

\"You can tell by my voice right now that it's frustrating to me when there's calls being made when the person's not looking and then there's calls made where I don't know what he's watching,\" he said. \"Granted, we tied it later but they still got a power play out of it so if they score on that power play, my team is down 3-1 instead of being tied 2-2. ... At the end of the day, I'm sure the league will look at it.\"

John Scully tied the game with his first career SPHL goal just 1:10 into the third period. Scully\u2019s goal came on the power play as Quad-City's top-ranked unit was 1-for-4 on the night.

Powers scored in the first round of the shootout, burying a shot under the crossbar while the Storm couldn't beat Milosek, who made 30 saves on the night.

\"It's tough, you've got to read a goalie and you're trying to get up high, but you know he's good up high so you're trying to beat him low and you're trying to make moves around us,\" McCloy said. \"At the end of the day, we saw he was a little shaky towards the end and myself personally, I should have just went down and put a shot on net and hopefully caught him. I think that's where I started, I tried to deke and then everyone else tried to as well. Maybe if I shot the first time, maybe it goes a little bit different.\"

With another game on the line, Nolan Ebel again stepped up big for the Agustana men's basketball team in a clutch situation Saturday night.

Ebel hit four straight free throws to keep the Vikings in a nip-and-tuck CCIW showdown with No. 8-ranked Illinois Wesleyan. The senior point guard then applied the dagger with a mid-range jumper from the right wing with :25.7 left that spurred the third-ranked Vikings to a thrilling 67-60 victory at Carver Center.

That bucket finished a possession in which Augie had three shots before getting a fresh 30-second clock with an out-of-bounds call.

\u201cHe's really a great clutch player,\u201d said Augie coach Grey Giovanine of his senior, who has been a go-to guy in late-game situations. \u201cHe really rises to the occasion. But I think our whole team did. We had guys step up and make key free throws and we played tremendous defense down the stretch.\u201d

Ebel was humble, knowing full well that it took a complete 40-minute team effort \u2014 especially on defense \u2014 to pull out the victory in the marquee Division III matchup on Saturday's slate.

\u201cThat was a really big win because they're a great team and picked to finish second in the league,\u201d said Ebel, who finished with a game-high 23 points. \u201cTo get this at home was really big for us. It was physical. We didn't play great through the whole game, but we played hard when it mattered.\u201d

The final score was not indicative of the way the game played out. The seven-point spread was Augie's largest of the game. IWU (7-2, 1-2 CCIW) led for much of the contest before the game went back and forth after a tie at 50. In fact, there were 10 ties and seven lead changes before Augie (7-1, 2-0 CCIW) took the lead for good at 58-56 on two Ebel charity tosses.

Augie's defense was especially sound. IWU came in averaging 82.8 points per game and were held to their lowest total of the season. Usually relying on the 3-pointer, the Titans were just 2 of 15 from beyond the arc. Leading scorer Brady Rose was held to a team-high 13 as Alex O'Neill added 11.

\u201cIt was a tremendous defensive effort,\u201d said Giovanine, \u201cto hold that team 23 points under its average.\u201d

\u201cWe're always going to play hard and give ourselves a chance to win,\u201d said IWU coach Ron Rose. \u201cThis was a winnable game that came down to one or two possessions at critical times.\u201d

Micah Martin was a force inside for the Vikings despite the Titans packing their defense and not giving Augie many good looks inside the 3-point arc. The junior center added 13 points and five rebounds. Augie's 45-35 rebounding edge was led by Pierson Wofford's seven caroms.

This one was there for the taking.

Even without standout guard JaMir Price, the Rock Island boys basketball team did plenty of things well Saturday night to knock off Class 3A eighth-ranked Ottawa.

The Rocks held the Pirates to a season-low point total, dominated the boards and had ample opportunities at the foul line.

Rock Island could not finish at the offensive end.

Held to 29-percent shooting and 9 of 19 from the free-throw line, coach Thom Sigel\u2019s squad dropped a 48-43 non-conference tilt to Ottawa at the Rock Island Fieldhouse.

\u201cWhen you\u2019re inept at times offensively, your defense has to be great,\u201d Sigel said. \u201cBut I thought as a whole to hold them to 48 (points), that would have given us a great chance to win.\u201d

Price, a Bradley recruit, was required to sit out after collecting two technical fouls in Rock Island\u2019s conference loss to Moline on Friday night.

The Rocks missed his shot-making.

\u201cHe has the ability to go get some buckets on his own, which always makes everything easier for any coach at any level,\u201d Sigel said, \u201cbut I looked at it as an opportunity for other guys to step in and see if we could pull off a win. We had our opportunities.\u201d

Rock Island (5-3) misfired on 14 of its 16 shot attempts in the third quarter. It had one sequence late in the period where it missed three uncontested shots from beyond the arc.

Ottawa (8-0) wasn\u2019t much better from the perimeter, but the Pirates did get 3-pointers from Alex Stevenson and Myles Tucker to turn a two-point lead into an eight-point margin early in the fourth quarter.

The Rocks never got closer than four points the remainder of the way.

\u201cThere wasn\u2019t a lot of freedom of movement on the floor, and both teams guarded pretty well,\u201d Ottawa coach Mark Cooper said. \u201cWe struggled to compete on the boards, but we made enough winning plays late in the third quarter and the fourth to get it done.\u201d

Rock Island finished with a 39-25 advantage on the glass. Aaron Voss hauled in a dozen boards, and Tauren Holtam came off the bench to score a team-high 15 points and snatch seven boards.

\u201cThat was the main priority to bring some intensity off the bench,\u201d Holtam said. \u201cJaMir is good, but we also have to play without him. He\u2019s not always going to be there for us.

\u201cWe just have to go back to practice and work on finishing.\u201d

Ottawa\u2019s Tyler Carson led all scorers with 19 points. Tucker finished with 11 points as the Pirates survived despite 3 of 18 shooting from behind the 3-point line.

Rock Island, meanwhile, was 15 of 51 from the field. Jordan Rice buried three treys en route to 12 points, but the rest of the Rocks were a combined 1 of 12 from beyond the arc. Rock Island also missed a slew of looks around the basket and had five different players miss free throws.

\u201cWe had some decent looks,\u201d Sigel said, \u201cbut we didn\u2019t shoot it with confidence tonight.\u201d

IOWA CITY \u2014 Max Murin figured he had something to prove when he stepped on the mat Saturday night at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

\"I started slow and didn\u2019t wrestle the way I was capable of last week,\" Murin said. \"You can\u2019t wrestle for 6 minutes and 30 seconds and expect to win. I wanted to show that I was better than that.\"

He wasn\u2019t alone.

One week after a generally lethargic collective effort in a one-point win over Iowa State, the fourth-ranked Hawkeyes started fast and\u00a0doubled up\u00a0Lehigh 28-14 in front of a crowd of 7,434.

Murin was among the tone setters in a dual that saw Iowa collect bonus points in its first four matches and in five matches overall as the Hawkeyes improved to 6-0 on the season.

He collected a quick takedown and added a four-point near fall in the first period of his 14-3 major decision over the Mountain Hawks\u2019 Dan Moran.

\"The idea was to come out and wrestle the whole seven minutes,\" Murin said. \"The coaches have been on that all week. Come out, force the action and capitalize on every opportunity.\"

Murin followed the lead of top-ranked Spencer Lee at 125 and Austin DeSanto at 133, who both dominated from the start.

Lee needed 2 minutes, 32 seconds to earn a 15-0 technical fall over Luke Resnick in the meet\u2019s first match, and DeSanto finished off a 19-8 major decision over Brandon Paetzell with a series of four third-period takedowns.

\"Start fast and finish, finish, finish,\" DeSanto said. \"I didn\u2019t win my match last week. I was like a lot of guys. I wanted to come out and make a statement.\"

Lee proved his point as well.

\"My job is to come out and set the tone, put some points up and get everybody on the team going,\" Lee said. \"I always try to come out fast.\"

That approach was the norm for Iowa against Lehigh.

\"I\u2019ve got two guys in front of me in the lineup in Lee and DeSanto who are great examples of how we need to approach things,\" Murin said. \"They got us going.\"

And once the Hawkeyes got going against the 16th-rated Mountain Hawks, they built an insurmountable lead.

Iowa\u2019s Pat Lugo tacked on a 12-3 major decision at 149, and Alex Marinelli earned a 21-5 technical fall in 6:27 at 165 as the Hawkeyes won the first six matches of the meet.

That included a 4-1 decision by fifth-ranked Kaleb Young over 15th-ranked Josh Humphreys at 157. Young scored the only takedown of the match in the opening period, using an escape and a point for riding time to earn his winning margin.

Iowa\u2019s seventh win came at 184, where Cash Wilcke collected a takedown with 15 seconds remaining in the first sudden-victory overtime to claim a 6-4 decision.

Lehigh, with three losses to top-five teams on its 0-4 record, earned bonus points with wins by rated wrestlers in three of the final four matches.

Jeremiah Moody wrestled for Iowa at its injury-riddled 174 lineup spot and dropped a 12-3 major decision to sixth-rated Jordan Kutler.

Jake Jakobsen, ranked 14th at 197, pinned Steven Holloway in 1:01, and sixth-ranked Jordan Wood collected a 13-3 major decision over Aaron Costello at 285.

The meet was the last for Iowa until competing at the Midlands Championships on Dec. 29-30.

\"The way we competed from the start, this sends a statement that we know what it\u2019s about to be ready,\" DeSanto said. \"We learned a lesson last week.\"

PORT BYRON\u00a0\u2014 Sherrard wrestling coach Jeff Garrett\u2019s primary goal on Saturday was for his team to repeat as champions of the Jim Boyd Invitational at Riverdale High School.

Mission accomplished.

The Tigers racked up three weight class championships, two second-place medalists, four medalists for third place and three fourth-place medalists to outpoint Seneca, Dubuque Senior and the host Riverdale Rams in the nine-team field.

\u201cOur team works very hard in the wrestling room, and we pride ourselves on being in better shape and more mentally prepared than the majority of our opponents,\u201d said Garrett. \u201cWe only have three seniors on our team, and our younger kids are starting to embrace the work ethic needed to consistently win.\u201d

Davenport North placed fifth at the meet, spurred by a pair of champions. Kyp Ridenhour topped Dubuque Senior's Declan Sisler 3-0 in the 220-pound title match, and Eleazar Valerio pinned Seneca's Luke Sangaton in 46 seconds in the 106-pound title tilt.

North also got top-three finishes from Sam Hamma (second at 145), Zane Beebe (third at 138) and Jack West (third at 182).

Riverdale coach Myron Keppy was satisfied with the performance of his team, earning a fourth place finish.

\u201cWe earned three individual championships, and some of our younger guys were also able to pick up medals,\u201d said Keppy. \u201cI pretty much expected Bryan Caves to win at 195 pounds, and Colton Reiman at 145, but Andrew Walker winning the heavyweight championship was a nice bonus for us.\u201d

Sherrard and Riverdale went head-to-head in two marquee championship matches, with Sherrard\u2019s Jacob Hanson pinning Riverdale\u2019s Carson Ebenroth at 138, and Caves returning the favor by pinning Sherrard\u2019s Gavin White at 195.

Sherrard\u2019s other weight class champions were Carson Caldwell (152) and Josh Bynum (182).

The ebb and flow in Saturday's CCIW women's basketball game was nothing short of incredible.

However, the biggest turn of the game proved to be too much for the Augustana Vikings to overcome as they couldn't dig out of an early deficit in an 83-76 loss to the 13th-ranked Illinois Wesleyan Titans at Carver Center.

At the outset, it appeared as if the Vikings (4-5, 1-2 CCIW) might have found a recipe for success against one of their biggest rivals as the hosts forced the Titans into six early turnovers and were the aggressors.

But that changed quickly as the Titans finished the first quarter on a 15-0 run and added the first eight points of the second frame to blow out to a 32-10 lead just over a minute into the second.

However, down by 22 and looking out of the game, the Vikings found a way to turn it around. With IWU's shooting slipping a bit and the Vikings only committing three turnovers in the frame and hitting shots, Augie pulled within 40-34 by halftime.

The Vikings, though, could only get as close as five in the second half as the Titans moved to 8-2, 3-0 in league play.

Despite the setback, Augie coach Mark Beinborn was optimistic about the rally and the final two-plus quarters his squad played after not packing it in early.

\u201cThey didn't give up,\u201d said Beinborn. \u201cI loved their energy, and I loved a lot of the things they did. We weren't perfect, but if we play like that every single night the rest of the way out, we'll win a lot of games.\u201d

IWU had a lot to do with that big deficit. The Titans shook off a rough start to finish the first quarter hitting nine of 15 shots from the field and then scored eight points on their first three possessions of the second quarter to go up 32-10.

Augie finished the first frame with turnovers on seven straight possessions and totaled 22 in the game (while forcing IWU into 21).

After a rough three quarters, Izzy Anderson found her shooting touch and finished with 21 points to lead the Vikings. Alexis Jones added 16, and Rock Island's Justice Edell added 10 in a reserve role.

Maddie Merrit (28 points) led four IWU players in double-digit scoring.

CHAMPAIGN \u2014 Samba Kane and Cheikh Mbacke Diong used to dream about this moment: to come to the United States and play college basketball.

The two went to Florida Prep Academy together after leaving Dakar, Senegal. Diong ended up at UNLV, where he's now a sophomore starter. Kane has been battling for minutes after missing the entire summer as a freshman at Illinois.

Long before Illinois (3-8) beat UNLV 77-74 on Saturday at the State Farm Center to snap a three-game losing streak, Kane sent Diong a text.

\u201cI was like, \u2018Bro, it\u2019s kind of like a dream for us. We both had the dream to come to the states and play basketball here. God helped us. We are playing against each other now,'\" Kane said. \"That\u2019s a great feeling.\"

It just so happened, that Kane was the first one off of head coach Brad Underwood's bench and turned in the best performance of his young career. He hammered home a pair of dunks, swatted shots and gave the Illini a spark, finishing with eight points, two blocks and two rebounds.

Kane's performance was a welcomed sight on a team that has seen him improve by leaps and bounds in practice. He's started to turn in plays that were made out of instinct, not instruction, including a thunderous dunk in the first half where he faked a handoff to guard Andres Feliz and plowed though the lane for a dunk.

\u201cMVP tonight,\" Illinois junior Kipper Nichols, who had 12 points, said of Kane. \"He stepped up in a major way. Confidence is everything in the game of basketball. I think he got a little bit of that tonight. We\u2019ve known what he could do since day one, it\u2019s just about getting caught up to speed.\"

In the first half, Kane swatted away UNLV (4-4) big man Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua and channeled his inner Dikembe Mutombo with a finger wag that sent a jolt of swagger and confidence through the team.

Nichols hadn't seen Kane pay homage to Mutombo in practice, but on Saturday, he joined in on the finger wag.

\u201cThat was big time,\" Underwood said of the move. \"That\u2019s fun. Some people look at that stuff as taunting or whatever. I think one of the dumbest rules we have is letting kids not enjoy moments on the bench. That\u2019s probably 40 times a game we get people telling us to sit down.

\"The game\u2019s about energy, about enthusiasm, about kids having fun. That little moment was pretty cool I\u2019m happy for him.\"

But the Illini flirted with disaster and came dangerously close to punting the chance to capitalize on Kane's performance or the 19 points Feliz provided off the bench.

Illinois led by 14, 61-47, with 8:23 left in the game after freshman Giorgi Bezhanishvili converted two free throws, then disaster started to show it's head.

A 6-0 UNLV run in just over a minute cut the lead to eight points, 61-53 with 7:01 left. Illinois got back up by double figures after a Nichols layup with 4:41 left, but UNLV didn't budge. The Runnin' Rebels went on a 5-0 run in just over a minute again and ended up as close as two points with 18 seconds left in the game after a Diong (13 points) dunk.

Illinois freshman Ayo Dosunmu hit one of two free throws with 13 seconds left, and Feliz stole the ball from Amauri Hardy with two seconds left and dribbled out the clock.

A 14-point lead was gone in a hurry, but Nichols thought it was an important stretch for his team, even if Underwood wouldn't necessarily agree.

\u201cWhat happened was very important for us,\" Nichols said. \"On top of getting the win, I think those last three or four minutes, I think we grew up. We grew up as a team, having to actually win the game. It didn\u2019t come easy for us. We could have kept a 14-point lead until zero and it might have been a little different.\"

After games this season where the Illini have let games slip and slide away in the second half, they finally found themselves on the right side of a close game.

\u201cThis one was a pretty big win, after a while where we had not won,\" Feliz said. \"We\u2019re still there. We keep working hard every single day and stay together as a team.\"

As for Kane, he was all smiles after the game, playing a big role in the most important win of the season for Illinois. He saw Diong sit behind Brandon McCoy last season and bide his time behind a standout player.

Now, Kane was in the spotlight with a budding confidence after being pushed and pushed by his teammates. He made his season debut just four games ago against Mississippi Valley State. Underwood never even thought about redshirting the player who missed a majority of the summer.

\u201cIt means a lot, just knowing that coach trusts me in this game to get the win, it meant a lot to me,\" Kane said.

IOWA CITY \u2014 After reaching another milestone Saturday, Megan Gustafson rescued the Iowa women\u2019s basketball team.

The senior scored 16 of her 32 points in the fourth quarter to help the 16th-ranked Hawkeyes fight off upset-minded IUPUI 72-58 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

\"In the fourth quarter, I knew I had to make some plays,\" said Gustafson, who became the third player in Iowa history to score 2,000 points when she collected her 10th point of the game on a field goal with 7 minutes, 32 seconds left in the first half.

Gustafson\u2019s work in the final quarter extended beyond hitting four of the five shots she took and knocking down eight of the 10 free throws she attempted.

It started with an assist that came after the Jaguars had forged the game\u2019s ninth tie on two of Macee Williams\u2019 team-high 15 points to open the quarter.

Hannah Stewart broke the 48-48 tie on the ensuing possession, taking a feed from Gustafson and laying the ball in to put Iowa in front to stay with 9:32 remaining in the game.

The Hawkeyes worked the ball into Gustafson\u2019s hands on four of their next five trips down the floor, allowing Iowa to extend a 19-6 run that had started in the final minutes of the third quarter.

By the time Gustafson laid the ball through the basket with 4:51 to play, Iowa had built a 61-52 advantage and was able to maintain a lead of at least seven points for the rest of the game.

\"We knew this would be a hard game to get. They came in with a 29 RPI, they won at Ole Miss and Virginia Commonwealth, took Wisconsin to overtime, there wasn\u2019t going to be anything easy about this one,\" Iowa coach Lisa Bluder said.

The Hawkeyes\u2019 1-of-14 touch from 3-point range didn\u2019t help.

\"We\u2019ve got to find a cure for that,\" Bluder said. \"Our guards did a better job in the second half of driving the ball to the basket and getting us to the line instead of just throwing the ball inside. It was something we needed to do.\"

Makenzie Meyer collected Iowa\u2019s only basket from behind the arc in the final seconds of the first half, cutting the IUPUI halftime lead to 33-31.

The Jaguars held a five-point advantage midway through the third quarter before Tania Davis began Iowa\u2019s final surge.

Her steal and lay-in with just under three minutes remaining in the quarter cut into the Jaguars\u2019 46-42 lead.

A pair of free throws by Stewart, who finished with 10 points, and a basket by Gustafson allowed Iowa to take a 48-46 edge into the final quarter.

Still cold from the perimeter, the Hawkeyes helped themselves over the final two quarters with improved defense, limiting the Jaguars (6-3) to 25 second-half points.

In addition to finding Gustafson more frequently on the offensive end, Iowa (7-2) guards traded long-range shots for a willingness to attack the basket and work their way to the free throw line, where the Hawkeyes connected on 17-of-19 attempts over the final two quarters.

\"There are going to be nights when the shots aren\u2019t falling, and when that happens, you have to find other ways,\" said Amanda Ollinger, who came off the bench to score five points and grab six rebounds. \"This is a good time of year, before we get to Big Ten games, to learn that lesson and fix what we need to fix.\"

It wasn\u2019t a big shock that Illinois retained Lovie Smith as its head football coach.

After all, it would have cost the school a $12 million buyout to rid itself of the former Chicago Bears coach. The price tag was too high. Had to keep him.

The thing that raised eyebrows around the Big Ten was when athletic director Josh Whitman announced that Illinois was giving Lovie a two-year extension. He now is under contract through 2023.

\u201cWe wanted to demonstrate firmly and strongly that this is a direction that we believe in,\u201d Whitman said. \u201cThis is a person we believe in. This is a program that\u2019s on the rise.\u201d

Sure. Whatever you say, Josh.

The Illini did have their best won-loss record in three years under Smith (4-8) but one victory was against an FCS team (Western Illinois), one was against 1-11 Rutgers and one was against 2-10 Kent State, the worst team in the Mid-American Conference.

The big win was against Minnesota and had that game been played a few weeks later, it might have had a different outcome because the Golden Gophers actually improved as the season progressed. They really were a team \"on the rise.\"

The Illini really weren\u2019t. In the next-to-last game of the season, they suffered a 63-0 loss at home to an Iowa team that came in with a three-game losing streak. They gave up 63 points in two other games and 54 in another. Two of those games were against sub-.500 teams.

Lovie made his name in coaching as a defensive guru, which makes those point totals especially embarrassing. His program seemingly has taken backward steps on that side of the ball in his three years on the job. The Illini gave up 45.6 points per game in Big Ten play, 11 points worse than any other team.

Does that sound like a program \"on the rise?\"

The reasoning behind giving him an extension is that if a coach in a major sport doesn\u2019t have at least four years remaining on his contract, he is considered to be handcuffed from a recruiting standpoint.

You also could reason that giving a coach with such a rotten record an extension sends the message that this school has really low standards for its football program. That could handcuff your recruiting, too.

According to published reports, the Big Ten is considering doing away with its East-West divisional set-up for football. The thinking apparently is that if the conference championship game were to match the two best teams in the league instead of the best in each division, it might help the Big Ten land a spot in the four-team playoff, something that hasn\u2019t happened the past two years.

Sorry, but that probably wouldn\u2019t have made any difference this year. We would have had Ohio State and Michigan meeting in the title game just a week after their regular-season meeting. Even if Ohio State won again, the Buckeyes probably still would have lost out to Oklahoma for a playoff berth. If Michigan had won, it would have guaranteed that the Big Ten wouldn\u2019t get a playoff spot.

Even though the West never has won the Big Ten title game, it doesn\u2019t make sense to change it right now.

***

The Chicago Cubs signed a new pitching coach this week. Some guy named Tommy Hottovy, who formerly served as the team\u2019s run-prevention coordinator. I guess that\u2019s what pitching is, right? Run prevention.

It seems as though most major league pitching coaches these days are paunchy older guys whose only exercise is the occasional stroll to the mound.

Hottovy is 37. He\u2019s six weeks younger than Ben Zobrist and only a couple of years older than Jon Lester and Cole Hamels. In fact, Hottovy was drafted by the Red Sox in 2004, two years after they selected Lester, and briefly was a teammates of Lester's with the Portland Sea Dogs in 2007 and the Red Sox in 2011.

His entire major league career as a situational lefthander was comprised of 17 games and 13 1/3 innings with Boston and Kansas City.

***

We're still trying to determine who was the youngest pitching coach in major league history, but Hottovy appears to be the youngest one currently.

The youngest one last season was 40-year-old Kyle Snyder of the Tampa Bay Rays.

It all begins Saturday.

A total of 39 games in 18 days (not counting the Jan. 7 national championship game) played in 35 different stadiums in 16 states plus the Bahamas and televised by seven different networks.

The college football bowl season is bigger than ever.

A look at the bowl season by the numbers:

1\u00a0 \u00a0

Bowl game matches two teams from the same state. Louisiana and Tulane will travel to Orlando, Florida, to play one another in the Cure Bowl, which is the very first game of the bowl season.

2\u00a0 \u00a0

Of the three Heisman Trophy finalists will oppose one another in the Orange Bowl when Oklahoma and Kyler Murray take on Alabama and Tua Tagovailoa.

3\u00a0 \u00a0

Bowl games have matchups between two teams that won conference championships. Alabama takes on Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl, Ohio State plays Washington in the Rose Bowl and Northern Illinois goes up against UAB in the Boca Raton Bowl.

4\u00a0 \u00a0

Bowl games match teams that formerly were members of the same conference. Syracuse and West Virginia (Big East) meet in the Camping World Bowl, Missouri and Oklahoma State (Big 8/Big 12) play in the Liberty Bowl, South Carolina and Virginia (ACC) are in the Belk Bowl and Virginia Tech and Cincinnati (Big East) clash in the Military Bowl. Virginia Tech and Cincinnati actually were never together in the Big East. The Hokies left the league the year before the Bearcats came in.

5\u00a0 \u00a0

Teams with the nickname Tigers (Clemson, LSU, Missouri, Auburn and Memphis) will be participating in bowl games.

5\u00a0 \u00a0

Teams (Baylor, Houston, Troy, South Florida and Hawaii) won\u2019t need to leave their home state to play in a bowl game.

7\u00a0 \u00a0

Bowl games will begin prior to noon Central time.

9 (at least)

NFL-bound players plan to skip their teams\u2019 bowl games, including Iowa tight end Noah Fant, Michigan defensive lineman Rashad Gary, Houston defensive lineman Ed Oliver and Oklahoma State running back Justice Hill.

10\u00a0\u00a0

Teams with 6-6 records are playing in bowl games.

14\u00a0\u00a0

Points is the largest opening point spread for any bowl game. That\u2019s how much Alabama was favored to beat Oklahoma by in the Orange Bowl and the spread for BYU over Western Michigan in the Idaho Potato Bowl.

14\u00a0\u00a0

Schools that are playing in bowl games also have teams ranked in this week\u2019s Associated Press men\u2019s basketball Top 25.

18\u00a0\u00a0

Schools have played in more than 40 bowl games but five of those teams (Nebraska, Florida State, USC, Tennessee and Arkansas) are not adding to their total this season.

20\u00a0\u00a0

Teams with 7-5 or 7-6 records are playing in bowl games.

33\u00a0\u00a0

States are represented among the 78 bowl participants, led by Texas with six and North Carolina and Florida with five each.

80\u00a0\u00a0

Previous games for Iowa State against current members of the Pac-12 (with a record of 21-58-1), but the Cyclones never have played Washington State, their opponent in the Alamo Bowl.

729\u00a0

Points have been scored by Iowa in its 31 bowl games while it has given up 766 points. The Hawkeyes are 15-15-1 in those games.

4,030

Miles is the longest distance any team will travel to play in a bowl game. That\u2019s how far Louisiana Tech will go to face Hawaii in the Hawaii Bowl.

As recent college graduates take on increasingly heavy burdens of student loan debt, one Quad-Cities grocer is offering relief to its employees.\u00a0

This month, Fareway Stores Inc. became the latest company to offer programs to assist employees with student loan payments. Fareway official Chad Carter, vice president of benefits, said the Boone-based grocery chain will provide full-time employees $100 a month toward student loan costs, or up to a total of $5,000.

\"We feel that we have a pretty competitive benefit package now for our employees, but we're always looking to improve,\" said Garrett Piklapp, Fareway senior vice president. \"Our wheels are constantly turning internally regarding how we can recruit and retain excellent talent.\"

The loan payments will be administered by a third party, with payments made directly to the lending company and applied to the principal balance, he said. According to a news release, about 3,000 Fareway employees are eligible for the benefit, and Piklapp said those employees range from current college students to older adults continuing education.

Analyst Mark Kantrowitz said adding loan payments to employee benefit packages is now as important as offering retirement contributions.

\"College graduates worry more about their student loans than they worry about retirement,\" said Kantrowitz, vice president of research for SavingforCollege.com. \"Student loan payments are certainly a good recruiting and retention tool. It's why Amazon raised minimum wage to $15, because we have very low unemployment right now. Employers have to compete more to attract employees. This is one way for employers to recruit college students and grads.\" 

Kantrowitz, who analyzes student loan data and college costs, said he's starting to see more companies offering student loan payments as benefits. But nationally, only 4 percent of companies offer student loan repayment matching or assistance, according to the 2018 Benefits Report, a survey by the Society for Human Resource Management.\u00a0

Nationally, employers offering loan payments include Staples, Estee Lauder and Fidelity Investments.

Few Quad-City companies offer such a benefit. But Deere & Co., Arconic and other major employers offer tuition assistance programs, to help employees continue education and obtain higher roles in the companies.\u00a0

Fareway, with several stores in the region, is one of the first to offer Quad-City employees student loan assistance. But Kantrowitz believes this is only the beginning.\u00a0

Average student loan debt nationwide has been growing by around $1,000 to $2,000 each year. In 2011, the average bachelor's student graduated with about $17,616 in debt. Last year, the average four-year grad took home $29,812 in student loan debt, according to SavingforCollege.com.\u00a0

In Iowa, student debt has grown about 28 percent over the past decade, averaging close to $30,000, according to the Institute for College Access & Success. About 70 percent of four-year students graduate with debt in Iowa.

And those numbers increase if you take into account Parent PLUS loans and private loans under parents' names, Kantrowitz said. Last year, average parent loan debt nationwide rose to $35,584, according to his data.\u00a0

Student loan debt has reached several milestones in recent years, he said, including surpassing the amount of outstanding credit card and auto loan debt. The soaring cost of college is a major contributor to the problem, he said.\u00a0

\"Debt is also growing so much because government grants and appropriations have not been keeping pace with increasing college costs,\" he said. \"The cost of education is going up, but money from the government is not, shifting the burden to the families.\"

For students and families unable to afford the higher cost of college, Kantrowitz said student loans provide the \"only degree of elasticity.\"\u00a0

\"At the same time, family income has been almost flat since 2000. There was a slight uptick last year, but nothing major. So families don't have any other way to pay for college, but to rely on loans,\" he said.

Kantrowitz said student loan debt \"can be affordable,\" depending on the borrower's income after college, but he added the debt-versus-income ratio varies greatly.

\"We have to realize student loans are paid back over decades, not months or years like credit card debt,\" he said. \"So each new class is graduating with debt, while the paying back of debt for existing borrowers is relatively slow. For parents, they often cannot afford to pay off debt for their children. Students are often the ones making agreements to pay off the parent loans, too.\"\u00a0\u00a0

As the burden of student loans makes it more challenging for this generation to afford housing and basic necessities, he said offering employee loan assistance programs is one way employers can help out their workforce.\u00a0

\"Just as an observation, I've seen health care firms, especially in nursing, tend to offer loan repayments,\" he said. \"They have a hard time recruiting nurses, so some of them have even gone beyond loan repayments and are giving employees bonuses sufficient enough to pay off student loans.\"\u00a0

Kantrowitz said several lawmakers in recent years have pushed for legislation regarding employers' student loan repayments. The Student Loan Repayment Acceleration Act, introduced in October, would offer companies the ability to make annual tax-free contributions toward employees' student loans.\u00a0

The debt repayment plays would work similarly to a 401(k).\u00a0

\"The watershed moment will be when Congress takes action to make loan repayments tax free,\"\u00a0Kantrowitz said. \"Then, all of a sudden, most employers will want it. HR departments are already dealing with 401(k) and other benefits. This'll just be an additional part of the workload of HR staff. And it's something they will quickly adopt, especially if they're in a very competitive environment for employees.\"\u00a0

Kantrowitz predicts employers soon won't be the only ones struggling to recruit young talent. If college costs continue to rise, he argued, schools will also face a recruitment problem.\u00a0

Fareway officials said they're happy to be one of the first companies in the area offering a loan payment program.\u00a0

\"We are excited to provide this additional benefit to our employees,\" Fareway CEO Reynolds Cramer said in a statement. \"It will help reduce the financial stress of paying student loan debt and encourage employees to consider higher education who may not have previously due to its cost.\"\u00a0

WASHINGTON (AP) \u2014 President Donald Trump said Saturday that chief of staff John Kelly will leave his job by year's end amid an expected West Wing reshuffling reflecting a focus on the 2020 re-election campaign and the challenge of governing with Democrats reclaiming control in the House.

An announcement about Kelly's replacement was expected in the coming days, the president told reporters as he departed the White House for the Army-Navy football game in Philadelphia.

Only a day before, Trump named his picks for attorney general and ambassador to the United Nations, and two senior aides shifted from the White House to Trump's campaign.

Kelly had been credited with imposing order on a chaotic West Wing after his arrival in June 2017 from his post as homeland security secretary. But his iron first also alienated some longtime Trump allies, and he grew increasingly isolated, with an increasingly diminished role.

Known through the West Wing as \"the chief\" or \"the general,\" the retired Marine Corps four-star general was tapped by Trump via tweet to try to normalize a White House riven by infighting and competing power bases.

\"John Kelly will leaving \u2014 I don't know if I can say retiring \u2014 but he's a great guy,\" Trump told reporters. \"John Kelly will be leaving at the end of the year. We'll be announcing who will be taking John's place \u2014 it might be on an interim basis. I'll be announcing that over the next day or two, but John will be leaving at the end of the year. ... I appreciate his service very much.\"

Kelly had early successes, including ending an open-door Oval Office policy that that had been compared to New York's Grand Central Station and instituting a more rigorous policy process to try to prevent staffers from going directly to Trump.

But those efforts also miffed the president and some of his most influential outside allies, who had grown accustomed to unimpeded access. Kelly's handling of domestic violence accusations against the former White House staff secretary also caused consternation, especially among lower-level White House staffers, who believed Kelly had lied to them about when he found out about the allegations.

In any administration, the role of White House chief of staff is split between the responsibilities of supervising the White House and managing the man sitting in the Oval Office. Striking that balance in the turbulent times of Trump has bedeviled both Kelly and his predecessor, Reince Priebus.

Trump Friday announced that he would nominate William Barr, who served as attorney general under President George H.W. Bush, to the same role in his administration. He fills the slot vacated by former Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, who was jettisoned by Trump over lingering resentments for stepping aside from overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Trump also said that State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert was his pick to replace Nikki Haley as the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Earlier Saturday, he announced that he wanted Army chief of staff Gen. Mark Milley as the next chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Among the other changes, two veterans of Trump's 2016 campaign, White House political director Bill Stepien and Justin Clark, the director of the office of public liaison, are leaving the administration to work on Trump's re-election effort. The moves had long been planned, but will give Kelly's eventual successor room to build their own political team.

Trump had discussed replacing Kelly on multiple occasions, including following the negative publicity surrounding Kelly's handling of domestic violence accusations against then-White House staff secretary Rob Porter. Some lower-level White House staffers believed Kelly had lied to them about when he knew of the allegations and when he made clear to Porter that he'd have to leave.

Trump had often tossed around potential replacements, but sensitive to charges that his administration has been marked by record turnover, he said in July that he would keep Kelly in the job through 2020.

But inside the White House, it was viewed largely as an attempt to clamp down on speculation about Kelly's fate during the midterm elections, rather than a true vote of confidence.

Kelly, too, made no secret of the trials of his job, and often joked about how working for Trump was harder than anything he'd done before, including on the battlefield. In private, Kelly, whom friends said took the job out of a sense of duty to his country, cast himself as safeguarding the public from an impulsive and mercurial president. Reports of those conversations infuriated the president, who is especially sensitive of attacks on his competence and perceptions he is being managed.

At an event celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Department of Homeland Security, Kelly joked that he missed everyone in the department \"every day,\" offering a deadpan eye roll and smile that drew laughs and applause.

\"At six months, the last thing I wanted to do was walk away from one of the great honors of my life, being the secretary of Homeland Security, but I did something wrong and God punished me, I guess,\" he joked.

Kelly, who had threatened to quit on several occasions, told friends he would be happy if he lasted until his one-year anniversary: July 28.

The Iowa Attorney General\u2019s Office has filed a lawsuit against a Davenport man that alleges that his business promised to create and distribute promotional items \u2014 including posters promoting high school sports teams \u2014 but instead defrauded small businesses across the country.

The lawsuit, filed Dec. 4 in Polk County District Court, alleges that Alphonso Barnum; his wife, LaFayia Kay Barnum; his mother, Willie Nance, and several limited liability corporations, including City Wide Promotions, Top Faith Solutions, and New Start Media, violated the Iowa Consumer Fraud Act.

The Attorney General\u2019s Office alleges in the lawsuit that the businesses started by selling advertising space on posters and calendars that promote high school sports teams, and then expanded to direct mail advertisements, city information guides, magnets, and brochures.

The advertisements, which range in cost from a few hundred dollars to more than a thousand dollars, are sold to real estate and insurance agents and other small business people.

The Barnums\u2019 companies often promise to make up to 5,000 of the promotional items and distribute them throughout the community, including mailing to all households and sending to supermarkets or other popular locations, according to the suit. They also falsely claim they are working with local schools to distribute the items, according to the suit.

The companies sometimes create mock-up ads or produce a few samples for customers. But often that is the only product that gets made or distributed, the lawsuit alleges. The defendants charge the customers\u2019 credit card or bank account and ignore complaints from customers or delay responding until after the money is gone and the victims cannot get the money back, according to the suit.

When the defendants get too many complaints, they create new LLCs and switch credit card processors and banks, according to the suit.

The lawsuit says the defendants also use confusion and high-pressure sales tactics to convince consumers that they have previously agreed to purchase advertising and that the amounts are past due. They threaten to turn consumers over to a collection agency if they refuse to pay the fictitious debt immediately, according to the suit.

The Attorney General\u2019s investigation and news stories indicate that consumers have complained about the defendants\u2019 practices across the country, including in New York, Idaho, Michigan, Texas, Massachusetts, California, Florida, Georgia, and Missouri, as well as Iowa. New Start Media has an \u201cF\u201d rating from the Better Business Bureau.

According to the suit, filing the lawsuit in Polk County is proper because \"defendants did business in Polk County, made advertising sales to residents of Polk County, and one or more consumer victims of defendants' unlawful practices in question reside in Polk County.\"

The Barnums have refused to respond fully to the Iowa Attorney General\u2019s investigative efforts. \u201cDefendants have exhibited a complete indifference to the investigative efforts of the Iowa Attorney General,\u201d according to the suit.

The suit also states that Alphonso Barnum has a \"lengthy\" criminal history in Illinois and Iowa for multiple felony and misdemeanor convictions, including deceptive practices, forgery, theft and felon in possession of a firearm.\u00a0

The Attorney General\u2019s Office is seeking penalties against the defendants for up to $40,000 for each violation, in addition to reimbursing victims for all money wrongfully obtained.

They also are asking a judge to permanently dissolve each of Barnum\u2019s limited liability companies and prohibit the Barnums from operating any business in Iowa involving advertising or selling of promotional items.

In last month's column, I said there would be more gift ideas for shooters and anglers coming in December. So as we turn our attention to the holiday season, let's look at some\u00a0gift ideas for the outdoors recreationists in your life.\u00a0

The first gift idea is one that I just learned of from Guy Tal, CEO of Maglula. I\u2019ve used the Maglula for speed loading 9mm magazines, and it has been great. Now the company offers speed loading for one of the toughest loading magazines around\u00a0\u2014 a Ruger 10/22 box magazine.

These rotary magazines are tough to load, so you'll want plenty of spares. That's one reason I\u2019ve never purchased one of the higher capacity magazines, as the 10-round units are bad enough. But, Maglula, based in Israel, has solved that problem with a unit that works for the Ruger 10/22. For further information about this unit and all of the Maglula magazines visit www.maglula.com.

In my prior column, Walt Matan, of Custom Jigs & Spins, had an idea about their available\u00a0kits. These are excellent ideas, which Terry Vance, president of Blitz Lures, and Ron Stallings, a jack-of-all-trades at TTI-Blakemore/Gun Protect, have also added.

Vance suggests one of Blitz Lure's combo packs, consisting of six \u00bd-ounce Blitz Blade Baits or Phrogs. The blade is a great lure for fishing in all sorts of weather at a variety of depths and for a variety of fish, while the Phrog is one of the best topwater floating frogs for fishing heavy weed cover. These can be found at www.blitzlures.com.

TTI-Blakemore has several available kits, including Road Runners and Team Catfish Kit (which comprises double action circle hooks, Jack Hammer \"J\" hooks, Titan Treble Hooks, sinker Sinker Slides and Sinker Bumperz). A few more of my favorites include Daiichi, Tru-Turn and Xpoint hooks. The Xpoint is my main hook for worm and tube fishing, and I use the Daiichi Copperhead with Natural Forage Baits\u2019 Jerk Shad. The TTI-Blakemore kits can be found at www.ttiblakemore.com.

Gifts ideas for hunters and shooters

On the shooting side of things, targets are always needed, and Do-All Outdoors has some great offerings. One of my picks is the Blast Back, a group of three reset targets. The first two fold back when they're hit, while the third resets all three when shot. You can see the complete line of Do-All Outdoors targets at www.doalloutdoors.com.

Another of my favorite targets is produced by Twisted River Targets in LeClaire. While they have several of the AR500 steel types, I like the bullseye target with the larger outer target and middle 4-inch plate as the bullseye. Twisted River targets and other items are found at www.twistedrivertargets.com.

Looking to teach a young one how to shoot? There are plenty of airgun options that will do the trick.\u00a0

The Freedom PCP from American Tactical is a great shooter with open fiber optic sights. American Tactical also offers a new line of PCPs that come with wooden stocks, unlike the Freedom's polymer stock. Both air and powder gun accessories are available at www.americantactical.com.

Another airgun that has worked well for me, and has been very popular on my YouTube channel, is the Gamo Swarm Maxxim. This is a break barrel pellet rifle that uses 10-round magazines. It also comes with a nice full-size scope. Information on this and other Gamo products can be found at www.gamousa.com.

If you're looking for an accurate semi-auto 22LR rifle, you'll want to check out the Rossi RS22. The open fiber optic sights that come on this unit are great. It is lightweight, with a polymer Monte Carlo stock, floating barrel and 10-round magazine. It also has a rail for mounting a scope, but the fiberoptic sights have been so much fun and accurate that I haven\u2019t been using a scope. This is one of those guns that you enjoy for shooting targets and plinking all day long. Information on this and other Rossi firearms, including the RB22M (bolt action 22 WMR unit) can be found at www.rossiusa.com.

More fishing gift ideas

In all my years in the fishing industry, one of my favorite and most productive lures has been a Rat-L-Trap. In contacting Richard Broadwell of Bill Lewis Outdoors, I found that Bill Lewis Outdoors has a new lure that will make for a great gift.

The new lure is called the MR-6 Mark Daniels Jr. Signature Series Mid-Range crankbait. Unlike the Trap, this lure has a diving bill. It features a compact, 2 \u00bc-inch body length containing an internal weight-transfer system for long-casting abilities for a small-sized lure. The flattened sides and tapered tail combine for extreme vibration on a tight wiggle action.

The MR-6 can carry large Size 4 Mustad Triple Grip hooks while still maintaining superb action. The buoyancy is perfectly balanced with a slow rise when the lure retrieve is stopped, and it gives off a subtle knocking sound when coming through the water. If you need a gift for the angler in your life, especially a gift that's sure to become one of the hottest \"fish catchers\" on the market, take a look at the MR-6. Further information is available at www.rat-l-trap.com.

The Davenport Police Association will host its 16th annual Domestic Violence Christmas Toy Drive Saturday and Sunday at NorthPark Mall in Davenport. It benefits children who will spend Christmas in a Family Resources Inc. domestic violence shelter or safe house.

The toy drive will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. nex Sunday.

Davenport police will collect new unwrapped toys and tax-deductible monetary donations.

\u201cThe Davenport Police Association is proud to continue the tradition started in 2002 with Family Resources by hosting the 2018 Christmas Toy Drive,\u201d said Davenport Police Cpl. Kris Mayer, who has long been the Police Association\u2019s coordinator for the event.

Family Resources staff distributes what is collected, he said. \u201cThis event benefits children and families throughout the Quad-City Metro Area,\u201d he added.

\u201cThis past September I received a call from a woman whose 13-year-old daughter wanted to help out kids in need,\u201d Mayer said. \u201cIn talking further with her I learned that about 5 years ago they were in a bad place in life and benefited from this program, and her daughter remembered it and now that they are in a better place in life are looking to help others.

\u201cIt is the little differences like this that make the entire program worthwhile,\u201d Mayer said.

The toy drive began in 2002 when Family Resources' domestic abuse shelter was burglarized and all of the toys were stolen. At that time, the Davenport Police Association and the Union of Professional Police stepped in, along with Gold's Gym, to mount a drive that replaced the toys. There was no drive the next year, but the Davenport Police Association resumed it in 2004 and it has been a staple of the Quad-City Christmas season since. .

Donors also may drop off toys at the Davenport Police Department, 416 Harrison St.; US Adventure RV, 5120 Brady St.; or Matt Sturdevant State Farm Insurance, 1903 Pershing Ave., and Chuck\u2019s Tap at 6th and Division streets, all in Davenport.

MOLINE \u2014 McLaughlin Holding Company, the holding company for SENB Bank, on Friday announced a definitive merger agreement with Gateway Banc Corp., parent company of Gateway Community Bank in Roscoe.

Under the terms of the agreement, McLaughlin will acquire all of the outstanding stock of Gateway Banc Corp. in an all cash merger transaction.

\"We are proud to bring together two banking teams focused on high service and progressive, high value products to serve the banking needs of our customers,\" said SENB Bank President/CEO Dan Daly. \"Together, we will remain loyal to our customers and our communities.\"

As of Sept. 30, Gateway Bank had about $90 million in assets, $68 million in loans and $67 million in deposits. With the merger, SENB Bank enters the greater Rockford area and Beloit, Wisc.

The merger agreement has been approved by the board of directors of both firms. The acquisition is expected to close in the first quarter of 2019.

Gateway Bank CEO Allen Brewer said they expect a smooth transition and are confident SENB Bank \"will continue to provide the high-quality banking services that our customers have come to expect from us.\"

SENB Bank has served the Quad Cities and neighboring communities since 1961, growing to $219 million in assets with five banking centers in Moline, Bettendorf, Davenport and Buffalo.
