2. Bettendorf High School receives threat; school adds more security

\"Bettendorf

Bettendorf High School

Bettendorf High School received a message on Thursday indicating a potential threat on the campus on Friday.

District and high school administration have been working with the Bettendorf Police Department and the FBI investigating the situation, school officials said.

Both agencies do not believe this is a credible threat and support the high school proceeding with school on Friday. Although determined a prank, out of an abundance of caution, the high school will have added security on campus on Friday.

The additional security is designed to provide a measure of assurance and peace to students, staff and families. It is not being placed because of any credible safety concern, school officials added.

3. White supremacist flyers still being circulated

Flyers from the National Alliance, a white supremacist group based in Tennessee, still are being circulated in the Quad-City area, with a Moline woman finding one Wednesday on a sidewalk while walking her dog.

The flyers first began being reported in the summer of 2017. Read more.

\"111518-welcoming-signs-001\"

Co-founder of One-Human Family Rev Rich Hendricks talks about the \u201cwelcoming business\u201d signs being distributed to Quad-City area businesses. During a press conference Thursday, Hendricks said the campaign will fight against hate.

To counteract growing incidence of hate crimes and speech, a new campaign was launched Thursday to encourage local businesses to display \"We Welcome All People\" signs. Read more.

4. Spartans rule All-Metro boys, girls cross country teams

\"101818-Cross-Country-005\"

Pleasant Valley's Kent Nichols runs ahead of Dubuque Hempstead's Mason Suarez during the state-qualifying cross country meet at Crow Creek Park in Bettendorf on Oct. 18. Nichols earned all-state honors with a 14th-place finish at the Class 4A state meet.\u00a0

Pleasant Valley swept the Mississippi Athletic Conference boys and girls cross country titles this season. Both teams qualified for state and finished in the upper half in Fort Dodge.

Those two squads are at the center of this year's Quad-City Times All-Metro cross country teams. Read more.

5. Hawkeyes use defense, foul shooting to stun No. 13 Oregon

\"Iowa

Iowa forward Tyler Cook (25) dunks past Oregon guard Victor Bailey Jr. (10) during the first half Thursday in the 2K Empire Classic at Madison Square Garden in New York.

If someone had told Fran McCaffery that his Iowa basketball team was going to shoot 35.2 percent from the field Thursday night and make only one field goal in the final 12 minutes, he would have been, well \u2026 worried.

But it\u2019s amazing what vastly improved defense and superb free throws shooting can do for a team.

The Hawkeyes played the sort of hard-nosed defense that was missing most of last season and made 28 of 30 shots from the foul line in the second half to upset No. 13 Oregon 77-69 in the semifinals of the 2K Empire Classic at Madison Square Garden.

Iowa (3-0) will take on UConn in the championship game Friday at 6 p.m. The Huskies sprung an upset of their own earlier Thursday evening, taking down No. 15 Syracuse 83-76. Read more.

Whatever you imagined, it's even better. Driving on a certain section of U.S. 67, heading upriver from Davenport, remind yourself to keep your eyes on the road. A beautiful distraction, just past LeClaire proper, threatens a center-line violation every time.

Built upon the edge of a steep limestone bluff, high above the blue-green waters of an abandoned quarry, the house nearly screams out the name, Frank Lloyd Wright. It's just one of our Off Limits stories from Barb Ickes.\u00a0 Read more.

Bettendorf High School received a message on Thursday indicating a potential threat on the campus on Friday. District and high school administration have been working with the Bettendorf Police Department and the FBI investigating the situation, school officials said.

Both agencies do not believe this is a credible threat and support the high school proceeding with school on Friday. Although determined a prank, out of an abundance of caution, the high school will have added security on campus on Friday.

The additional security is designed to provide a measure of assurance and peace to students, staff and families. It is not being placed because of any credible safety concern, school officials added.

After-thoughts from Iowa\u2019s 77-69 victory over No. 13 Oregon:

--If Iowa\u2019s defense can play like this all season, the Hawkeyes are going to do very well. Oregon allegedly one of the best point guards in the country and a 7-foot-2 center who is one of the top freshmen around, but the Ducks struggled all night to find quality shots. Other than graduate transfer guard Ehab Amin, none of them ever really got rolling. Iowa\u2019s zone defense was especially good but it looked solid in the man-to-man as well.

--That being said, it\u2019s hard to believe Oregon is anywhere close to the 13th best team in the country. That point guard, Payton Pritchard, looked horrible. It\u2019s a team with some size and length but it didn\u2019t appear to have much firepower at all.

--Backup center Ryan Kriener continues to make really big plays for the Hawkeyes. After 7-foot-2 Bol Bol blocked four Iowa shots early in the game, Kriener came and gave a clinic on how to get off shots inside against a guy with a 7-8 wingspan. He also hit a 3-pointer and was tremendous on the boards. He brings an element of toughness that this team needs.

--When someone asked one of Iowa\u2019s veterans at media day, which player they felt could succeed Nicholas Baer as the team\u2019s \u201cenergy guy\u2019\u2019 off the bench. He said Riley Till and the reporters present had to stifle their laughter. On Thursday, it stopped being a joke. With his high school teammate, Cordell Pemsl, out with an injury, Till came in to play some significant minutes in the first half. The walk-on played great defense, grabbed three offensive rebounds and did not look at all like a walk-on who\u2019s hardly played. The kid is going to help this team as the season goes on.

--Tyler Cook again committed a handful of silly turnovers, but he still had a decent game: 9 points, 10 rebounds. It wasn\u2019t the superstar performance he undoubtedly hoped for on the big stage but he helped the Hawkeyes win the game.

--The Hawkeyes generally did a very nice job against the fullcourt press when Oregon began using it consistently in an attempt to get back in the game in the second half. Jordan Bohannon, Baer and Connor McCaffery, in particular, remained calm and made very good decisions. The Hawkeyes again had too many turnovers (14) but very few of those came against the press.

--Luka Garza didn\u2019t fare quite as well inside against Bol, but he made several clutch plays down the stretch. His 3-point field goal from the top of the key with 3:35 remaining was Iowa\u2019s only field goal in the final 12 minutes.

--In fact, Iowa made only four field goals in the entire second half: Dunks by Cook and Kriener and 3-pointers by Garza and Joe Wieskamp. You can do that when you go 28 for 30 at the foul line.

--For the second straight game, Fran McCaffery removed his entire starting five in the first few minutes of the second half because he was angry at the way they were playing.

To counteract growing incidence of hate crimes and speech, a new campaign was launched Thursday to encourage local businesses to display \"We Welcome All People\" signs.

\"111518-welcoming-signs-001\"

Co-founder of One-Human Family Rev Rich Hendricks talks about the \u201cwelcoming business\u201d signs being distributed to Quad-City area businesses. During a press conference Thursday, Hendricks said the campaign will fight against hate.

The signs aim to reflect the community's commitment to diversity and openness to customers of all backgrounds, including race, ethnicity, country of origin, age, religion, gender and sexual identities.

\u201cEncroachments on the rights and freedoms of any of us affects all of us,\u201d said Rev. Rich Hendricks of Metropolitan Community Church of the Quad-Cities who started One Human Family QCA with Rabbi Henry Karp in 2016.

\"111518-welcoming-signs-003\"

One of the \u201cWelcoming Business\u201d signs being distributed to Quad-City area businesses by the One-Human Family organization.

\"We must stand together,\" he said. \"We are, in fact, one human family. There is no 'other'; it's a myth. We are all part of the same species.

\"111518-welcoming-signs-002\"

\u201cIt\u2019s not about being politically correct,\u201d said Rabbi Henry Karp, who co-founded the nonprofit organization, One-Human Family, \u201cIt\u2019s about how we treat one another as human beings.\u201d

\"That doesn't mean we don't celebrate our individuality and our diversity,\" he said. \"It does mean we are here to support each other. We are stronger and better as a community when we are diverse and inclusive.\u201d

Hendricks said it has become fashionable in some circles to \"other,\" or put down people of \"fill in the blank\" \u2014 African-Americans, Muslims, Jews, gays, trans people and women. But human rights are universal, he said; they go beyond partisan political arguments.

Hendricks urged people to speak out and organize.

\"Bullies thrive when good people are intimidated from acting,\" he said. \"But the reverse is also true \u2014 where people speak out, and act out of kindness, inclusivity and love, bullies fear to raise their ugly head.\u201d

Karp, rabbi emeritus of Davenport's Temple Emanuel, said the FBI reported 7,175 hate crimes nationwide in 2017, a 17 percent increase, the biggest surge since 2001.

\"Hate crimes against Jews rose 37 percent,\" he said, noting the Oct. 27 Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, which killed 11 people, was the deadliest anti-Semitic attack on U.S. soil.

The Quad-Cities has seen few actual hate crimes, he said. But the National Alliance, a white nationalist group, has been actively recruiting in the area, Karp said.

This week, he said, One Human Family received reports of Moline and Rock Island neighborhoods targeted with its flyers. At Thursday's news conference in Scott Community College's downtown Davenport Urban Campus, Karp read one that said, in part, that \"no multi-racial society is a healthy society.\"

The white-supremacist flyers are protected by the freedom of speech, Karp said.

\"We respond by using our freedom of speech, by making statements throughout the community, showing that this is a community which embraces diversity,\" he said.

Becky Dawson, the owner of SIS International Fair Trade Center at 108 E. 2nd St., Davenport, has a business welcoming sign on display. Free signs of varying sizes can be obtained at the Chamber's Moline and Davenport and the Metropolitan Community Church, 2930 W. Locust St., Davenport.

\u201cThis is so exciting; I've had so many businesses ask me, why are you doing this? Aren't you afraid?\" Dawson said. \"No. Absolutely not. This is a message that needs to come out. We need everybody.\"

Dawson said she's seen people take pictures of the sign and share them.

\"It's OK to say, 'We need you and we want you. You are us,'\" she said.

Chamber President/CEO Paul Rumler recently posted one at the entrance of the organization\u2019s office at 1601 River Drive, Moline. Greg Aguilar, director of the Chamber's Q2030 regional action plan, said the group has a \u201cwelcoming and inclusive\u201d work group to promote diversity.

\"We are going to set a tone in our region, letting everyone know we truly value inclusion and will work to ensure we have equitable opportunities for all Quad Citizens,\" Aguilar said.

\u201cPeople want to move to diverse places that are welcoming,\u201d said Jack Cullen, Q2030 project manager. \u201cThat's what makes a cool community.\u201d

About two years ago, One Human Family QCA created a red, white and blue yard sign with a similar message of acceptance in Spanish, English and Arabic. More than 1,500 of the signs have been given out, according to the group.

White supremacist flyers still being circulated

Flyers from the National Alliance, a white supremacist group based in Tennessee, still are being circulated in the Quad-City area, with a Moline woman finding one Wednesday on a sidewalk while walking her dog.

A 12-year-old boy accused of trying to shoot a North Scott Junior High School teacher in August will have to wait at least a few more weeks to learn whether he will be tried in adult court as a youthful offender.\u00a0

A waiver hearing was scheduled Thursday in Scott County Juvenile Court. The same day, Assistant Scott County Attorney Dion Trowers filed a motion to delay the hearing to give him more time to go over a psychological evaluation that he received late Wednesday afternoon, according to the motion.\u00a0

Associate Judge Christine Dalton granted Trowers' request and set the hearing for Dec. 7. She also ruled during a hearing that was closed to the public that the boy will remain in custody at the Scott County Juvenile Detention, according to court documents.

He is charged with attempted murder, carrying weapons on school grounds, and assault while displaying a dangerous weapon.

Court documents allege the boy, armed with a loaded black Smith & Wesson .22-caliber gun, walked into a classroom at the junior high at 8:38 a.m. Aug. 31 and ordered everyone to the ground.

He pointed the gun in the teacher's face and pulled the trigger, but forgot to take the safety off. The teacher got the gun away from him and it was secured by law enforcement.

Scott County prosecutors in September filed a motion to try the boy as a youthful offender. If granted, he would be tried in adult court and, if convicted, would be sentenced in and remain under the supervision of the juvenile court until just before his 18th birthday.

The case then would return to adult court, where a judge could dismiss it or sentence the boy to adult prison, among other sentencing options.

The Quad-City Times is not naming the boy because it has not been determined if he will be tried as a juvenile or as a youthful offender in adult court.

Moline police are seeking the public's help in resolving a burglary to Uncle Pete's.

According to police, on Nov. 2, Uncle Pete\u2019s 3629 Avenue of the Cities was burglarized. The entrance door glass was smashed using a small hatchet which was left behind in the business.

Video showed the suspect enter and pull a cash register to the floor. He then put a second register on the floor and attempted to open both of them. The suspect picked up one of the registers and left with it.

He was inside the business for only one minute.

The register the suspect left with was located on the street in the 1800 block of 40th Street Court in Moline.

Video showed a light colored minivan dumping it out of the sliding rear passenger door as the vehicle was moving.

The suspect is described as possibly being a male in his early 20\u2019s wearing a light colored coat.

ROCK ISLAND \u2014 The owner of Abbey Station in Rock Island believes it may have been vandalized Wednesday night because of his opposition to razing the Rock Island County courthouse.

Joseph Lemon, Jr., said that at 1 a.m. Thursday, Rock Island Police notified his staff that someone had vandalized the business at 3031 5th Ave., Rock Island. Hours earlier, Lemon had told county board members he wanted to save the historic courthouse scheduled for demolition.

\u201cThe (vandals) didn\u2019t steal anything, but they broke a bunch of windows,\u201d Lemon said. \u201cThey went into the kitchen and ran the fire suppression system and sprayed fire retardant all over. There is about an inch of it on the ground.\u201d

A thermostat also was ripped from the wall and plates were broken.

Lemon said he thinks the vandalism is related to his support of the courthouse.

\u201cWe\u2019ve owned Abbey Station for almost 20 years, and we\u2019ve never had a problem like this,\u201d Lemon said.

\u201cI go to a public meeting and say I\u2019m concerned about the courthouse, and later this happens,\u201d he said. \u201cIt seems likely it\u2019s more than a coincidence on that particular night that this happened.\u201d

Rock Island Deputy Police Chief Jason Foy could not be reached for comment.

The Lemon family bought the former Rock Island train depot in 1999 and restored it, creating a banquet hall and event space. Lemon also is founder of The Abbey Addiction Treatment Center in Bettendorf.

Lemon said Rock Island Police reported that a passerby saw at least two individuals spraying fire extinguishers at the exterior of the building and, fearing a fire, called 911.

Lemon said some of his employees met with police shortly after the crime was reported. He viewed the damage firsthand Thursday morning.

\u201cThe reason (the vandalism) seems suspicious is I don\u2019t understand why the people in favor of tearing down the courthouse are so angry,\u201d Lemon said. \u201cThat part eludes me.

\u201cUsually when someone has an economic argument, it\u2019s dispassionate,\u201d he said. \u201cHere, we have people arguing \u2018Robert\u2019s Rules of Orders\u2019 (at Wednesday\u2019s county board meeting of the whole) over a historic building. A few hours later Abbey Station is vandalized.

\u201cWhen you\u2019re a victim of crime, it\u2019s pretty unsettling,\u201d Lemon said. \u201cPerhaps a completely random person has it out for an unoccupied building. But it\u2019s possible someone said, \u2018Joe Lemon wants to save the courthouse so let\u2019s go show him a lesson.\u2019\u201d

MAGALIA, Calif. (AP) \u2014 At least 63 are now dead from a Northern California wildfire, and officials say they have a missing persons list with 631 names on it in an ever-evolving accounting of the missing after the nation's deadliest wildfire in a century.

Officials were scrambling to pinpoint everyone's whereabouts, and Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said Thursday that the high number of missing people probably included some who fled the blaze and didn't realize they had been reported missing.

Authorities were making the list public so people could see if they were on it and let authorities know they were safe, Honea said.

\"The chaos that we were dealing with was extraordinary,\" he said of the early crisis hours last week. \"Now we're trying to go back out and make sure that we're accounting for everyone.\"

Honea released the list as others questioned the chaotic evacuations of Nov. 8.

Ten years ago, as two wildfires advanced on Paradise, residents jumped into their vehicles to flee and got stuck in gridlock. That led authorities to devise a staggered evacuation plan \u2014 one that they used when fire came again last week.

But Paradise's carefully laid plans quickly devolved into a panicked exodus last week. Some survivors said that by the time they got warnings, the flames were already extremely close, and they barely escaped with their lives. Others said they received no warnings at all.

Now authorities are facing questions of whether they took the right approach.

It's also a lesson for other communities across the West that could be threatened as climate change and overgrown forests contribute to longer, more destructive fire seasons .

Reeny Victoria Breevaart, who lives in Magalia, a forested community of 11,000 people north of Paradise, said she couldn't receive warnings because cellphones weren't working. She also lost electrical power.

Just over an hour after the first evacuation order was issued at 8 a.m., she said, neighbors came to her door to say: \"You have to get out of here.\"

Shari Bernacett, who with her husband managed a mobile home park in Paradise where they also lived, received a text ordering an evacuation. \"Within minutes the flames were on top of us,\" she said.

Bernacett packed two duffel bags while her husband and another neighbor knocked on doors, yelling for people to get out. The couple grabbed their dog and drove through 12-foot (4-meter) flames to escape.

In the aftermath of the disaster, survivors said authorities need to devise a plan to reach residents who can't get a cellphone signal in the hilly terrain or don't have cellphones at all.

In his defense, Honea said evacuation orders were issued through 5,227 emails, 25,643 phone calls and 5,445 texts, in addition to social media and the use of loudspeakers. As cellphone service went down, authorities went into neighborhoods with bullhorns to tell people to leave, and that effort saved lives.

Honea said he was too busy with the emergency and the recovery of human remains to analyze how the evacuation went. But he said it was a big, chaotic, fast-moving situation, and there weren't enough law enforcement officers to go out and warn everyone.

\"The fact that we have thousands and thousands of people in shelters would clearly indicate that we were able to notify a significant number of people,\" the sheriff said.

Some evacuees were staying in tents and cars at a Walmart parking lot and in a nearby field in Chico, though volunteers are planning to close the makeshift shelter by Sunday.

A Sunday closure \"gives us enough time to maybe figure something out,\" said Mike Robertson, an evacuee who arrived there on Monday with his wife and two daughters.

On Thursday, firefighters reported progress in battling the nearly 220-square-mile (570-square-kilometer) blaze that displaced 52,000 people and destroyed more than 9,500 homes. It was 40 percent contained, fire officials said. Crews slowed the flames' advance on populated areas.

California Army National Guard members, wearing white jumpsuits, looked for human remains in the burned rubble, among more than 450 rescue workers assigned to the task.

President Donald Trump plans to travel to California on Saturday to visit victims of the wildfires burning at both ends of the state. Trump is unpopular in much of Democratic-leaning California but not in Butte County, which he carried by 4 percentage points over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

The Paradise fire once again underscored shortcomings in warning systems.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill in September requiring the development of statewide guidelines for Amber Alert-like warnings. A few Northern California communities are moving to install sirens after wine country residents complained they didn't receive warnings to evacuate ahead of a deadly wildfire in October 2017 that destroyed 5,300 homes.

In 2008, the pair of wildfires that menaced Paradise destroyed 130 homes. No one was seriously hurt, but the chaos highlighted the need for a plan.

Paradise sits on a ridge between two higher hills, with only one main exit out of town. The best solution seemed to be to order evacuations in phases, so people didn't get trapped.

\"Gridlock is always the biggest concern,\" said William Stewart, a forestry professor at the University of California, Berkeley.

Authorities developed an evacuation plan that split the town of 27,000 into zones and called for a staggered exodus. Paradise even conducted a mock evacuation during a morning commute, turning the main thoroughfare into a one-way street out of town.

Last week, when a wind-whipped fire bore down on the town, the sheriff's department attempted an orderly, phased evacuation, instead of blasting a cellphone alert over an entire area.

Phil John, chairman of the Paradise Ridge Fire Safe Council, defended the evacuation plan he helped develop. John said that the wildfire this time was exceptionally fast-moving and hot, and that no plan was going to work perfectly.

When the fire reached the eastern edge of Paradise, six zones were ordered to clear out about 8 a.m. But almost simultaneously, the gusting winds were carrying embers the size of dinner plates across town, and structures were catching fire throughout the city. Less than an hour later, the entire town was ordered evacuated.

\"It didn't work perfectly,\" John said Thursday. \"But no one could plan for a fire like that.\"

Likewise, Stewart, the forestry professor, said the wildfire that hit Paradise disrupted the orderly evacuation plan because it \"was moving too fast. All hell broke loose.\"

Satellite images show half the town on fire less than two hours after the first evacuation order.

Stewart said experts continue to debate how best to issue evacuation orders, and no ideal solution has been found.

At the other end of the state, meanwhile, crews continued to gain ground against a blaze of more than 153 square miles (396 square kilometers) that destroyed over 500 structures in Malibu and other Southern California communities. At least three deaths were reported.

ROCK ISLAND \u2014 With seven members of his 10-player rotation making their varsity debut, Rock Island got quite the test in the season opener.

A Peoria High team that played the style veteran prep basketball players will remember from the 1980s by the Peoria Manual and Peoria High teams \u2014 fast, athletic and in your face the entire length of the court.

That style never allowed the Rocks to get into a flow but they still held on for a 69-60 win over the Lions.

\"That's no fun to play against,\" RI coach Henry Hall said after his first varsity win. \"They are physical and right in your face. It's hard to move and cut but it is good for us. We will have some film to watch and see what we did.

\"Not only did we have those seven girls in their first varsity action, we also had Carlee Camlin who had limited minutes last year. We found a way get through it and get the 'W.'''

Of course, it never hurts to have the two-time Illinois Ms. Basketball on your team.

Brea Beal struggled early with her shot but still found a way to do plenty of damage. She finished with 26 points, 20 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal.

\"I didn't get my shot going so I decided to use my size and take advantage of that,\" Beal said.

Beal wasn't exactly thrilled with the Peoria style that had two players all over her. When she got the ball, often times there were three or even four defenders clawing away at her.

With the Rocks up 19-14, things got a little ugly. On a rebound, Beal was fouled hard and she pushed a Peoria player. Two other Lions came in and shoved Beal before officials broke up the battle. Peoria was called for a foul and two technicals and the Rocks went on a 10-0 run that made it 29-14.

\"I realized early how it was going to be where they want to push you to the edge,\" Beal said. \"I am surprised I didn't get a technical as well. I shouldn't have allowed myself to get into that but after that incident I just had to get back under control.

\"It was at that point that we realized, as a team, that we were stronger and more competitive.\"

Hall knows Beal will be tested in many ways this season.

\"She was probably guarded as hard as she has been in a long while,\" he said. \"That's what she is going to see every game. She battled all the way and you saw she can dominate even when she is being hounded for 32 minutes.\"

It wasn't as if Beal was alone. Junior guard Bre Williams and freshman guard Imari McDuffy each had 11 points, and Camlin (six points) and Hannah Simmer (four points) each had seven rebounds.

\"That's the type of team we are going to be,\" Hall said. \"We will have Brea but I like the group we have around her.\"

The Rocks probably could have won the game much more handily if they made 3-pointers. RI finished the night 1-for-18 from beyond the arc, most of them wide-open shots.

\"We got what we wanted out of the offense and everyone was doing the right things,\" Beal said. \"We are going to make those shots most nights. We have trust in each other and we have players who can make those 3s.\"

Peoria's Jenna Beck did make five triples and led the Lions with 18. Shooria Metts added 16 points and nine rebounds.

NEW YORK \u2014 If someone had told Fran McCaffery that his Iowa basketball team was going to shoot 35.2 percent from the field Thursday night and make only one field goal in the final 12 minutes, he would have been, well \u2026 worried.

But it\u2019s amazing what vastly improved defense and superb free throws shooting can do for a team.

The Hawkeyes played the sort of hard-nosed defense that was missing most of last season and made 28 of 30 shots from the foul line in the second half to upset No. 13 Oregon 77-69 in the semifinals of the 2K Empire Classic at Madison Square Garden.

Iowa (3-0) will take on UConn in the championship game Friday at 6 p.m. The Huskies sprung an upset of their own earlier Thursday evening, taking down No. 15 Syracuse 83-76.

The Hawkeyes did not shoot well in the game, especially in the second half, but they held Oregon to 37.1-percent shooting and dominated the boards, outrebounding the taller Ducks 46-34.

\"I think what you saw tonight was a team that really fought together and shared the ball ...'' McCaffery said. \"I thought it was really an unselfish group tonight.''

Iowa grabbed control of the game from the opening tip, which 6-foot-9 Tyler Cook was able to win from 7-2 freshman phenom Bol Bol.

It opened an early 8-0 lead and never looked back. In the second half, the Hawkeyes' lead never dropped below seven points.

The Ducks (2-1) came out for the second half determined to get back in the game but the Iowa defense forced them to miss their first five shots of the half.

\"We could start to see the frustration in them then,'' Iowa guard Jordan Bohannon said. \"That's when we knew we had them.''

Bohannon led a very balanced attack with 16 points with Luka Garza adding 12 and Ryan Kriener 11. Cook finished with nine points and 10 rebounds.

The Hawkeyes even got a lift from walk-on Riley Till, who came in to grab three rebounds while playing significant minutes in the first half.

\"I'm really proud of Riley Till,'' McCaffery said. \"He really came in and fought. We're down Cordell (Pemsl) so I told him yesterday 'You're No. 10. You're going to be in there.' He did a great job.''

Ehab Amin led Oregon with 25 points and Bol added 14 but the towering son of former NBA player Manute Bol wasn\u2019t that big a factor in the contest. He blocked four shots within the first few minutes of the game, then never swatted another and appeared to have problems with cramps in the second half.

\"I know me personally and I think our entire team, we were looking forward to the challenge of defending Bol and the rest of their team,'' Cook said.

Kriener made some of the biggest plays of the game. After Oregon whittled Iowa\u2019s lead to four points late in the first half, he led an 11-0 scoring run. Kriener scored inside over Bol and Jordan Bohannon, Kriener and Maishe Dailey followed with 3-pointers to make it 39-24.

Kriener scored Iowa\u2019s next-to-last field goal with 12 minutes, 19 seconds remaining in the game, slipping past Bol for a dunk off a great entry pass from Bohannon.

Iowa held on from there by consistently making free throws. Seven different players combined to sink 22 of 24 foul shots after that.

The only Iowa field goal in those final 12 minutes was a 3-pointer by Garza with 3:35 remaining.

In Connecticut, the Hawkeyes will be facing a once-great program that is rebuilding under new head coach Dan Hurley.

\"It's a great challenge,'' McCaffery said. \"It's a storied program with a great coach. We need to be ready.''

PELHAM, Ala.\u00a0\u2014 Another tight game ended with another loss for the Quad-City Storm.

The Storm gave up two goals in the third period to fall 4-2 to the Birmingham Bulls, Quad-City's sixth straight loss after winning the season opener.

Garrett Schmitz scored the game-winner at the 13-minute, 14-second mark of the third period, burying a one-timer past Storm goaltender Peter Di Salvo for a power-play goal at the Pelham Civic Center.

Mike Davis scored an empty net goal in the closing minute to ice the game after the Storm pulled Di Salvo for an extra attacker.

Di Salvo made 32 saves as the Storm were outshot by the Bulls 36-21. Mavric Parks made 19 saves for the Bulls, who won their seventh straight game to start the season, the lone undefeated team in the Southern Professional Hockey League.

Sean Kacerosky, who was claimed off of waivers by the Storm on Wednesday, scored the first goal of his career, burying a slap shot past Mavric Parks just before the end of a power play to put the Storm up 1-0 at 2:31 in the game.

The Bulls countered with a pair of goals in the second period to take a 2-1 lead as Josh Harris and Justin Larson scored in a 36-second span.

Taylor McCloy tied the game up at 12:46, his first goal since the season opener.

Don Olivieri had two assists for the Storm, who were 1-of-5 on the power play and 3-of-4 on the penalty kill.

The Storm head to Pensacola, Florida, to take on the Ice Flyers today at 7:35 p.m.

IOWA CITY\u00a0\u2014 Austin DeSanto brings his own unique brand of energy to the Iowa wrestling room.

His attacking style helped the Drexel transfer earn a spot in the Hawkeye lineup at 133 pounds, where he won a preseason wrestle-off by winning back-to-back matches against Bettendorf\u2019s Paul Glynn.

He carried that over into Iowa\u2019s season opener, recording a technical fall over 18th-rated Sean Nickell of Cal State-Bakersfield in his first match as a Hawkeye last Friday.

DeSanto followed that up with an 8-7 win in his second match of the day against Raphael Rodriguez of Kent State and now finds himself preparing for the Hawkeyes\u2019 7 p.m. home opener today against Princeton.

\u201cIt\u2019s going to be crazy, I can\u2019t wait,\u2019\u2019 DeSanto said at the Hawkeyes\u2019 preseason media day last week.

Offense is at the core of what DeSanto is all about.

He was an NCAA qualifier last season as a true freshman, posting a 29-7 record during his one season at Drexel. His work there included earning bonus points in 18 of his victories including 11 wins by technical fall.

\u201cI like to score points and I\u2019ve heard people here like to see guys put points on the board, so that will be a good thing,\u2019\u2019 DeSanto said. \u201cIowa is the perfect spot for me. Everybody has that same mindset.\u2019\u2019

Coach Tom Brands can\u2019t wait either to see just what DeSanto brings to the Iowa program over time.

\u201cThe way that he competes, sometimes he takes it overboard a little bit, so we have to temper that. At the same time, we\u2019re going to temper that without taking anything away from him edge-wise,\u2019\u2019 Brands said. \u201cWe want him to have that edge. We want him to have that competitive fire.\u2019\u2019

That fire caught the eye of Iowa assistant coach Terry Brands as he watched DeSanto compete at the high school level in Pennsylvania.

It was there in the 2017 state championship match where DeSanto, already signed to begin his career at Drexel, showed the world what type of competitor he was.

He had lost to current Iowa 125-pounder Spencer Lee in the state finals by a 15-0 score in 2016.

The following year, DeSanto spent the majority of the season at 132 pounds, but dropped to 126 for the postseason with hopes of getting another chance to step on the mat with Lee.

That\u2019s how it played out and DeSanto stunned Lee and the crowd, using a late takedown to collect a 6-5 victory over the Hawkeyes\u2019 2018 NCAA champ who is now his teammate.

\u201cHe brings a lot of energy and a fire to everything he does,\u2019\u2019 Lee said. \u201cIf you\u2019re working as hard as Austin DeSanto, you\u2019re working pretty dang hard.\u2019\u2019

Brands wants the energy and competitive approach that Lee and DeSanto bring to training to be replicated throughout the wrestling room.

\u201cThe hope is that it\u2019s contagious,\u2019\u2019 Brands said. \u201cThere\u2019s a lot out there about how there\u2019s maybe only one program from him, that\u2019s this program.\u2019\u2019

DeSanto doesn\u2019t shy away from thinking big.

DES MOINES \u2014 Iowa\u2019s state-run lottery is doing great, thanks to two recent mega-jackpots that drove sales and profits, but other parts of the state budget aren\u2019t faring as well under status-quo funding.

Iowa Lottery CEO Terry Rich said the recent $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot won by a player in South Carolina and a $687.8 million Powerball jackpots split by winners in Iowa and New York created such a sales frenzy his operation is about a month ahead of where it normally is.

\u201cIt appears we\u2019re going to be around an extra month of profit, around $20 (million) to $25 million ahead of what we were in a normal year,\u201d Rich told Gov. Kim Reynolds during a state budget hearing Thursday. He said that should translate into about $71 million in proceeds to the state treasury for the current fiscal year that ends next June 30.

Rich said the mega-jackpots are a mixed blessing in that they generate a lot of interest but also set up an expectation that\u2019s hard to maintain.

\u201cIt worries me a little that we have jackpot fatigue,\u201d he said. \u201cIt used to be that at $10 million we had lines out the door; now it\u2019s probably $400 million before the press starts to take a look at it.\u201d

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

Rich\u2019s enterprise is somewhat unique in that it\u2019s run like a business and doesn\u2019t rely on state general funds to operate, unlike most of the other government functions where managers are struggling with a directive to once again present status-quo budget requests for the 2020 fiscal year that begins next July 1.

Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, who like Reynolds was elected to a four-year term in last week\u2019s midterm election, said years of flat state funding or midyear cuts have created what he described as a \u201cperilous\u201d situation for the state\u2019s Department of Justice.

Because of inadequate funding, he said, there is not enough money to cover the costs of working with county attorneys on criminal cases, working to uphold criminal convictions that are appealed and representing the state against civil lawsuits.

\u201cEarlier this year, we really had a crisis or a semi-crisis in representing the state in civil litigation,\u201d Miller told the governor during his budget hearing. \u201cA whole sort of \u2018perfect storm\u2019 came at us. I was extremely concerned, and we worked through that, at least temporarily, but we\u2019re just teetering on what the citizens of Iowa want us to do and expect us to do.\u201d

To \u201cavert total disaster\u201d over the past two years, Miller said, legislators gave him authority to use proceeds from legal settlements paid to the state by companies accused of bilking Iowa consumers to make up for shortfalls in other areas of his office\u2019s budget.

\u201cOur budget has been cut repeatedly, and it\u2019s difficult to have enough people to do everything that we want to do,\u201d Miller said in an interview, noting his office has roughly the same number of attorneys as five years ago but is dealing with about 40 percent more cases. \u201cThere\u2019s a real struggle to keep up the high quality of work that we\u2019re doing.\u201d

Miller is asking the governor and legislators for a $500,000 boost in fiscal 2020 and a $1 million increase in his agency\u2019s budget for the following fiscal year to help remedy the situation.

IPERS

Also Thursday, Donna Mueller, CEO of the 360,000-member Iowa Public Employees\u2019 Retirement System, said investments made in the past year had a 7.97 percent rate of return, increasing the IPERS trust fund to $32.3 billion.

The system paid $2.1 billion in benefits to eligible retirees and has a ratio of assets to liabilities of 82.4 percent \u2014 an improvement of about 1 percent over fiscal 2017, Mueller said, and reported a deferred investment gain of $487 million.

Given current conditions, she does not expect participants will see high contribution rates, and some may see a slight reduction.

CULTURAL AFFAIRS

Chris Kramer, acting director of the state Department of Cultural Affairs, requested a status-quo general-fund budget for the next two fiscal years, but asked for more than $56 million in Rebuild Iowa Infrastructure Fund money to renovate the State Historical Building near the state Capitol.

Kramer said the $28.4 million in fiscal 2020 and $27.6 million in fiscal 2021 would be used to make needed upgrades to protect art works, cultural artifacts and historical treasures housed at the downtown site.

In the current budget, she said, her agency had maintenance money to replace pipes and drainage and to make improvements to the roof and skylight.

But she hopes work could commence in July to install vapor barriers and upgrade heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems to create a safe, controlled environment within Iowa\u2019s \u201cflagship\u201d museum.

No serious injuries were reported in a multi-vehicle crash Thursday morning that snarled traffic on Interstate 280 for about two hours.

According to Illinois State Police, at 6:57 a.m. three vehicles were moving slowly through one lane of construction on the Iowa-bound I-280 bridge. A 1993 dump truck driven by Steve M. Bonynge, 36, of Aledo, was stopped or slowing due to traffic when it was struck by a 2017 Peterbilt truck/trailer driven by Larry Adams, 54, of Monroe City, Indiana.

Adams' vehicle failed to stop, state police said, crashing into the back of Bonynge's truck.\u00a0A 2015 Ford box truck, driven by Cameron B. Muske, 25, of Joy, then struck the back of Adams' vehicle.

State police said there were no injuries reported from the crash and no hazardous materials were involved.

The fire was quickly knocked down and hot spots were extinguished, Nahra said.

No injuries were reported.

Kevin Maynard, executive director of Galesburg's Orpheum Theatre, will be the next CEO of Quad-City Arts.

Maynard, a 30-year-old Geneseo native, will begin his new job Dec. 4. He succeeds Carmen Darland at the nonprofit arts organization that serves six counties in western Illinois and eastern Iowa.

Maynard, who's been executive director of the Orpheum for five years, has more than quadrupled the number of events there annually. He also more than doubled rental revenue, increased attendance, and oversaw a successful $1-million capital campaign, according to the theater.

\"He has a proven track record of success, which is always important to us,\" Quad-City Arts board president Chris Rayburn said Thursday. \u201cHe has an interesting combination \u2013 experience in managing a cultural arts organization, and an MBA with a concentration in finance.

\"We try and operate ourselves financially responsibly,\" said Rayburn. \"And he has been a successful fundraiser himself. The Orpheum needed a lot of help to take it from a negative to positive situation.\"

\u201cKevin has been a tremendous asset to The Orpheum Theatre and our community, and while we will miss him greatly, we are all excited for this great opportunity for him,\u201d board chairman Mark Blackburn said in the release.

The 2016 campaign for the 920-seat 1916 Orpheum was completed in just four months, Maynard said. It funded projects such as a state-of-the-art sound system and new carpeting, flooring and HVAC system. The Orpheum has a $500,000 annual budget, whereas Q-C Arts has a $1.4 million budget.

\u201cIt kind of checked off a lot of things for me \u2013 an increase in programming, responsibility, challenges,\u201d Maynard said. \u201cTheir mission, the things they're doing aligned with what the arts can be doing, should be doing for the community. It is a very impressive organization.\"

He was drawn to the position partly because he'll be closer to his parents and sisters who live in Moline and Colona.

Maynard attended Black Hawk College and graduated from Western Illinois University in 2011. He earned his MBA at Western in 2013. Before WIU, Maynard acted in local theater productions. His wife, Lily, is a performer and choreographer.

Rayburn, who led the Q-C Arts search process with Dan Portes of Management Resources Group, said the opening attracted 200 applicants, mainly from the region.

\"We have an amazing talent pool in the Quad-Cities,\u201d Rayburn said. \"We couldn't be more thrilled with our choice. We were looking for the best person, and feel very strongly we found that.\"

In late July, Darland \u2014 CEO since 2008 \u2014 announced she would retire in December. She has expanded programming and raised awareness of the impact of arts in the community, according to the group.

During her tenure, the organization grew its Visiting Artist Series to reach more than 70 percent of school children in Scott and Rock Island counties. It also hired dozens of 15- to 21-year-old artists to create public art while earning a stipend for their work as part of the summer Metro Arts Youth Apprenticeship Program, which also is expanding to serve more students.

The organization presents more than 25 juried exhibitions by regional artists at two area locations: the gallery inside the Quad-City International Airport and its own gallery at 1715 2nd Ave., Rock Island. It also facilitates and installs several public sculptures every year throughout the area.

Since 2001, it also has granted more than $1.1 million to artists, arts educators and arts organizations through its Arts Dollars program.

\u201cKevin is taking over a very strong financial situation,\" Rayburn said, noting he'll work with Darland during a transition in December and spend a day with her during this month's Festival of Trees, the nonprofit's largest fundraiser.

\u201cIt was important for us to find somebody who could come in, pick up from where we are, continue to work with our very talented staff and grow the organization,\u201d Rayburn said.

About 18 months after the last permanent music director of the Quad-City Symphony Orchestra Youth Ensembles left for a new job, the board has hired a replacement.

Ernesto Estigarribia, a 27-year-old native of Paraguay and doctoral candidate in orchestral conducting at the University of Minnesota studying with QCSO conductor Mark Russell Smith, will be new head of the Youth Ensembles and assistant conductor for the professional QCSO.

\u201cErnesto is passionate about music and its profound ability to enrich and shape young lives,\u201d Smith said in a news release.

\u201cI know that the young musicians of the QCSYE will be inspired by his energy and enthusiasm for music and the arts,\" Smith said. \"He will be a fantastic addition to the Quad-City Symphony family, and is poised to make a tremendous impact on the lives of many Quad-Citizens.\"

After three years, Ben Klemme stepped down from the position in May 2017 to become the Vermont Youth Orchestra Association\u2019s music director. A search committee received more than 40 applicants for the job from across the U.S. and other countries.\u00a0

Daniel Chetel, director of the Augustana Symphony Orchestra, was interim conductor for the QCSO Youth Symphony and Youth Philharmonic orchestras last school year. Christopher Ramaekers will remain as interim conductor through a transition to summer 2019.

Estigarribia is currently music director of the Southeastern Minnesota Youth Orchestras and conductor of the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphonies' Sinfonia East. Smith also is artistic director of the Youth Symphonies, which is made up of several groups.

Estigarribia\u00a0\u2014 who will complete his doctorate next May\u00a0\u2014 has co-directed the Campus Orchestras at University of Minnesota, been an assistant conductor of the University Symphony Orchestra and the University Opera Theater and is a recipient of the James Sample Fellowship.

\"He will bring energy and enthusiasm to his engagement with the student musicians,\" QCSO education committee chair Annette Tephly said in the release. \"I look forward to him enhancing the musical excellence of the youth ensembles.\"

Estigarribia has performed as a violinist and conductor in North and South America, the Caribbean and Europe. In 2017 he was the first Paraguayan guest conductor to appear in the International series of Orquesta Sinf\u00f3nica del Congreso Nacional (Paraguay) and was invited to return this year.

\u201cI am thrilled to have Ernesto joining our team, not only because of his great musicianship and technical skills but also because of his passion for working with youth and the vision he has for our youth ensembles program,\u201d QCSO executive director Brian Baxter said.

Baxter said that, as part of the search, two finalists were brought in to rehearse with the Youth Symphony and Youth Philharmonic. Students and parents had input into the hiring, he said.

The five ensembles \u2014 which serve about 300 area students\u00a0\u2014 include the Youth String Ensemble, Prelude Strings, and Youth Choir, each which has its own conductor. Estigarribia, who will conduct the top two orchestras, will start part-time in March 2019 while he completes his studies. He will become full-time over the summer.

IOWA CITY\u00a0\u2014 Last Chance U?

Not quite.

For Iowa wide receiver Nick Easley and his 2016 teammate at Iowa Western Community College, Illinois quarterback AJ Bush, time spent at the junior-college level provided a launching pad toward future opportunities.

Feeling he was under-recruited during his Iowa high school career at Newton in central Iowa, Easley opted for junior-college competition to showcase his skills for coaches at the next level.

For Bush, it provided playing time after spending two years buried on the depth chart at Nebraska.

\u201cHe came in late in camp, but you see right away that he was an athletic kid with a big arm and he was there to work. He was pretty motivated,\u2019\u2019 Easley said of Bush. \u201cHe shared the job that year, but he was a good player, a good leader, a good teammate.\u2019\u2019

As Easley piled up 954 receiving yards as a sophomore at Iowa Western, the 6-foot-4, 225-pound Bush rushed for 285 yards and passed for 602 that season.

Easley signed with Iowa shortly after that season ended while Bush picked Virginia Tech, where he filled a reserve role before joining the Illinois program this fall as a graduate transfer.

Iowa\u2019s leader with 51 receptions a year ago, an eight-catch game last weekend against Northwestern moved Easley into second on Iowa\u2019s receiving charts this season with 39 catches for 351 yards.

Bush has completed 82-of-150 passes for 1,050 yards and five touchdowns in seven starts this season for Illinois and has rushed for 659 yards and eight scores on 110 carries.

\u201cIt doesn\u2019t surprise me that he\u2019s doing what he\u2019s doing,\u2019\u2019 Easley said. \u201cHe\u2019s a pretty talented player who loves to compete, a real good guy. We still keep in touch.\u2019\u2019

Bush, who couldn\u2019t get past Tommy Armstrong and Ryker Fyfe on a crowded depth chart at Nebraska, has finally made the most of his opportunities.

\u201cIowa Western gave me a chance to regroup and put myself in a position to be where I\u2019m at now,\u2019\u2019 Bush said. \u201cIt\u2019s been a long journey, but I feel like I\u2019ve grown and learned every step of the way.\u2019\u2019

Among a group of 18 players from that 2016 Iowa Western team to sign with NCAA Division I programs, their careers intersect again Saturday when Iowa visits Illinois for a 2:30 p.m. game at Memorial Stadium.

It will be the final home game for Bush, who returned to Nebraska last weekend and rushed for three touchdowns against the Cornhuskers while piling up 187 yards, 13 better than the previous Fighting Illini single-game record for rushing yards by a quarterback established by Juice Williams in 2008.

As has been the case with Easley helping an otherwise young group of Hawkeyes grow into their roles, Bush has helped other young quarterbacks on the Fighting Illini adjust to the routine needed to compete at the collegiate level.

\u201cAJ has had such a big impact in the short time he has been with us on campus,\u2019\u2019 Illinois coach Lovie Smith said. \u201cHe\u2019s shown a good deal of leadership that will impact our program moving forward.\u2019\u2019

Easley has found the lessons learned during his time at Iowa Western to be beneficial as he has worked to help grow the consistency in an Iowa receiving corps built around sophomores and freshmen.

\u201cAt the juco level, it\u2019s about being able to adjust and take your game to the next level,\u2019\u2019 Easley said. \u201cGuys who try to get by with what they were doing in high school, they don\u2019t make it. It\u2019s a tough route to go, but if you\u2019re willing to work and open to learn, it can lead to good things.\u2019\u2019

Easley initially found the competition level to be challenging, but something he could handle by pushing himself to improve.

That willingness to work helped him then, and has continued to help him once he arrived at Iowa in time for the spring semester in 2017.

\u201cSo much of it is mindset and a willingness to do what it takes to get better and give yourself a chance,\u2019\u2019 Easley said. \u201cIt\u2019s hard. There isn\u2019t anything easy about playing Big Ten football. But, it\u2019s something I always wanted to do and I was willing to commit myself to doing what it took to make it happen.\u2019\u2019

In many ways, Bush has traveled the same path.

\u201cIt takes some patience and perseverance and a lot of sweat, but when you keep the faith, keep believing in yourself, it can happen,\u2019\u2019 Bush said.

As their careers intersect once again, Easley understands.

\u201cWhen you invest a lot into something, you want to get the most out of it as you can. We only have a couple of games left in the season and for all of us, the idea is to finish the year as strong as we can,\u2019\u2019 Easley said.

\u201cThe last couple of weeks have been tough. Things haven\u2019t always gone our way, but how we finish, that\u2019s important to all of us. That\u2019s all we can control right now, how we finish. We go into this week\u2019s game wanting to make the most of it.\u2019\u2019

MUSCATINE\u00a0\u2014\u00a0Rehearsing a play about a family for months, it makes sense that the actors in Muscatine Community College's upcoming fall play became one themselves.

\"This play is about family, and we definitely made our own here,\" said Mika Rangel, who plays \"Brigid Blake\" in Stephen Karam\u2019s \u201cThe Humans,\u201d which opens Friday night.\u00a0

The play centers on the Blake family during Thanksgiving dinner. As the Blake's discuss issues including aging, illness, economics, sexuality, politics\u00a0\u2014 hot-button topics that some families talk about when they get together\u00a0\u2014 family secrets are revealed.

First-year student Madison Sloan, who plays \"Deirdre Blake,\" said, it was hard to talk about some of the serious situations brought up in the play, but most of them are so common now, it was \"easy to connect because we've all kind of been through them in one shape or form. And we're still going through them.\"

The play, which opened on Broadway in 2016, addresses the state of middle-class Americans following 9/11 and the 2008 financial crisis. Although the play is a drama\u00a0\u2014\u00a0at times, full of tension\u00a0\u2014 humor is in there, too.

\"You're going to find yourself going, 'Oh, wow, I've said that to my family,'\" Sloan said.

Sloan and other cast members Micah Dennis, as Erik Blake and Mason Brown, as Richard, had been involved in theater prior to \"The Humans.\" But for Rangel and Violet Anaya, who plays the matriarch \"Momo\" Blake, rehearsing the play has been a welcoming experience. \"I always was into acting,\"\u00a0Anaya said,\u00a0\"so, it's been really fun.\"

The play is also the first production at MCC by Alyssa\u00a0Oltmanns, the new theater instructor. Oltmanns has worked in higher education for a decade.

Working through some complex emotions was a challenge for the cast, with some actors understanding their characters more than others.

\"I personally feel that I relate to my character's beliefs,\" said Brown, and he knows what drives his character. But for Dennis, it was harder to get in his character's head.

\"Personally, I don't relate to my character, and that's been difficult,\" Dennis said of the conservative father.

The cast held a special dinner theater for the Kiwanis Club, Muscatine Rotary and Lion's Club \u2014\u00a0community supporters of production\u00a0\u2014 Thursday night.

Dennis was quick to praise his new instructor.

\"We would not be the actors we are, up on this stage right now, at this point in time without this fabulous person,\" Dennis said of Oltmanns, also adding he believes he is the \"favorite\" cast member, bringing friendly competition much like a family.

Prior to making the move to Muscatine, Oltmanns completed her Master of Fine Arts in creative writing at Columbia College in Chicago, where she was also an instructor of writing and rhetoric in the program. She also has a Master of Arts in Educational Theater from New York University and directed her own play, \"Transgression\" that appeared off-Broadway and in festivals.\u00a0

\"I have been involved in theater nearly my whole life,\" Oltmanns said first performing as \"Meeko\" the Raccoon in Pocahontas through a \"College for Kids\" program at Sauk Valley Community College in Dixon, Illinois, near her hometown of Sterling. She said she performed in theater competitions in high school and taught at Woodlawn Arts Academy in Sterling, where she was also most recently preparing students for college theater auditions as an acting coach.

\"What I love about theater is its ability to inspire introspection; whether for an audience member or an actor; whether for a director or a technical designer,\" she said.

\"Theater forces people to think more closely about social issues, personal issues and relationships between people,\" she added. \"It doesn't explicitly answer questions about these topics, but through the medium of entertainment, critical thinking and deeper self-awareness is developed at an individual's own pace.\"

The cast believes that is reflected in the show.

\"It's a typical family Thanksgiving,\" Rangel said. \"I mean, we all have our problems ... \"

\"But at the end of the day,\" Sloan said, \"we all love each other.\"

A Durant man was arrested Wednesday for pointing a gun at someone during a road rage incident in Davenport in August, according to police.

Steven James Lorenz, of the 200 block of Golfview Drive, faces one count of assault while displaying a dangerous weapon, an aggravated misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison.

He posted $2,000 through a bail bond company and was released from the Scott County Jail Wednesday after spending a little more than two hours in custody.

Lorenz will make an initial court appearance Friday morning.

The incident happened around 3:30 p.m. Aug. 29, according to an arrest affidavit filed by Davenport police.

Lorenz was westbound on Interstate 290 near the Northwest Boulevard exit and pointed a two-tone black/silver pistol at the driver of another vehicle as they were driving side by side, according to the affidavit.

He was upset because he was not able to pass the person in the area of Interstate 74 and Middle Road, according to the affidavit.

Lorenz followed the other driver to the area of I-280 and Northwest Boulevard, where the incident occurred.

The driver began recording Lorenz using a cell phone, according to the affidavit, and Lorenz displayed a derogatory, hand written sign stating that the \u201cleft lane was for passing\u201d when the driver drove past his vehicle.

This part of the incident was recorded and given to police; the video showed the vehicle registration and Lorenz\u2019s face.

On Wednesday, a search warrant was executed on Lorenz\u2019s vehicle and home. A handwritten sign stating \u201cSlower traffic keep right dumba**\u201d and an Iowa nonprofessional permit to carry weapons out of Cedar County was confiscated.

Inside the home, police confiscated three pistols, one of which was a two-tone black/silver 9mm Taurus.

Flyers from the National Alliance, a white supremacist group based in Tennessee, still are being circulated in the Quad-City area, with a Moline woman finding one Wednesday on a sidewalk while walking her dog.

The flyers first began being reported in the summer of 2017.

Colleen Sibthorp said the flyer she found had a picture of a young white woman with the words \"Love Your Race\" and the web address of the National Alliance, but no other text. It was wrapped with a March issue of the Quad-City Times sports section and an ad for Menards.

Sibthorp said the discovery was upsetting, and reported it to Moline Police and to One Human Family QCA.

Of particular concern, Sibthorp said, is that the area in which she found it is culturally diverse. Within a block there are four churches \u2014 Catholic, Baptist, evangelical and Greek Orthodox, and a mosque. The Catholic Church, Christ the King, has sponsored immigrants.

In addition, families from other countries whose parents work for Deere & Co. live in a large apartment complex in the area, she said. \"Our neighbor school at one time boasted of 23 languages spoken within their walls,\" she added.

Police representatives have said they appreciate getting reports about the flyers so that they can track activity.

No serious injuries were reported in a multi-vehicle accident Thursday morning that snarled traffic on Interstate 280 for about two hours.

According to Illinois State Police, at 6:57 a.m. three vehicles were moving slowly through one lane of construction on the Iowa-bound I-280 bridge. A 1993 dump truck driven by Steve M. Bonynge, 36, of Aledo, was stopped or slowing due to traffic when it was struck by a 2017 Peterbilt truck/trailer driven by Larry Adams, 54, of Monroe City, Indiana.

Adams' vehicle failed to stop, state police said, crashing into the back of Bonynge's truck. A 2015 Ford box truck, driven by Cameron B. Muske, 25, of Joy, then struck the back of Adams' vehicle.

State police said there were no injuries reported from the crash and no hazardous materials were involved.

Early season storm dumps snow across much of Illinois

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) \u2014 An early season snowstorm dumped up to 6 inches of snow in parts of southwestern and central Illinois, causing widespread school closures and some traffic snarls.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for the area and said some additional snowfall into Thursday evening was possible.

The heaviest Illinois snowfall totals reaching half a foot in spots were reported in a band from the St. Louis area to around Springfield. Up to 3 inches of snow had fallen by Thursday morning in the Peoria and Carbondale areas. The Chicago area had about an inch of snow.

Police say electricity was knocked out in Lebanon, about 20 miles east of St. Louis, when a vehicle crashed into a utility pole early Thursday.

By the end of this weekend, you could discover your new favorite musician, and, maybe share a conversation or whiskey drink with them.

That\u2019s the brief version of what GAS Feed & Seed Festival, which returns to downtown Davenport this weekend for the fourth time since February 2017, is all about.

About 20 rising musical acts, representing a variety of genres and based in cities spanning the country, and a handful of comedians are on the lineup for GAS Feed & Seed, presented by Moeller Nights, which kicks off Thursday evening and runs through Saturday at two downtown Davenport music venues: the Triple Crown Whiskey Bar & Raccoon Motel, 304 E. 3rd St., and the nearby Stardust, 218 Iowa St.

The festival aims to introduce attendees to up-and-coming bands as well as bring back acts who have played, to receptive audiences, in the area within the last year or so. And, because of its intimate settings, the three-day event comes with a close-knit feel, allowing fest-goers and musicians to interact in between shows. Think of it like this: Each set comes with an informal meet-and-greet that you don\u2019t have to stand in line or upgrade your ticket to experience.

Speaking of tickets, here is some info about those: One-day passes cost between $20 and $30, a two-day pass for Friday and Saturday shows costs $40 and a three-day pass costs $50. To purchase tickets, visit moellernights.com/gas.

With all of that being said, many of the names on the schedule (which you can find in full attached to this story) may be new to you and to the Quad-City market.

So, read on for details on seven acts you don\u2019t want to miss at this weekend\u2019s GAS Feed & Seed Festival.

7 musical acts not to miss at GAS Fest

As the Rock Island Arsenal continues to pursue a partnership with the private sector to manage its golf course, clubhouse and historic mansion-turned-venue, the military base\u2019s top commander says he\u2019s \u201coptimistic\u201d a deal will be struck by summertime.

Col. Stephen Marr, who took command of the arsenal in June, said Thursday that the plan to partner up with a business that\u2019ll manage all three properties is on schedule. He also said a handful of businesses have expressed an interest so far, and the arsenal is set to host some folks on Friday to showcase the island. And he noted \u201cwe\u2019re getting a lot closer\u201d to getting it done.

\u201cLittle bit of red tape and bureaucracy that we\u2019re working our way through, but that comes with everything we do and so I don\u2019t see any major roadblocks or hiccups there on that front,\u201d he said.

\u201cIt\u2019s a lengthy process and \u2026 there can be delays, and we\u2019re working to accelerate it as much as we can,\u201d he added. \u201c\u2026 (I\u2019m) very confident by next summer that the ink on the paper will be dry, and we\u2019ll have a private commercial partner that we\u2019re working closely with to again preserve the unique aspects here on the island.\u201d

Marr\u2019s remarks come months after a study was commissioned to assess the feasibility of getting a private partner to manage the property. And the Army has already given the go-ahead for the concept. So far, they\u2019ve put out a \u201cpre-notice\u201d for potential contractors who might be interested, and a more formal solicitation is supposed to come after that.

Marr also said the properties, which are longstanding fixtures of the island with historic significance, are a draw that brings people from around the Quad-Cities there to visit. He also said the arsenal wants to continue to be a part of the community, and is working to be highly accessible to visitors. \u00a0

The golf course is the oldest in the region, dating back roughly 120 years \u2013 and the clubhouse is about the same age. Quarters One, which served as the home of the arsenal\u2019s top commander up until 2008, is now primarily used as a venue for weddings and private parties.

Many of the details have yet to be worked out over what new management will look like. But whoever takes over the properties will likely have to invest big to get some of the structures up to code. Quarters One, for example, is in need of millions of dollars in upgrades.

If the arsenal is indeed able to find a private manager, it won\u2019t be the first time a private company ran the golf course.

In 2009, the arsenal signed an agreement with a Washington, D.C.,-based firm to run the golf course, an arrangement that lasted less than two years. Afterward, the Army took back control of the course and made it public.

Camanche firefighters responded to a fire Wednesday night that destroyed a semi-tractor and damaged a building next to where the truck was parked.

Firefighters were dispatched at 9:07 p.m. to ADM Trucking, 504 21 St.

Upon arrival, firefighters found the 2012 Mack semi-tractor totally engulfed in fire with heavy black smoke coming from the vehicle.

The 14 firefighters on the scene were able to bring the fire under control in about 15 minutes.

The fire caused an estimated $35,000 in damage to the vehicle and another $10,000 to the building that was next to the parked semi. The semi was considered a total loss.

There were no injuries reported.

The cause of the fire appears to be a mechanical malfunction.

Assisting the Camanche Fire Department were the Camanche Police Department and MidAmerican Energy.

Ihmir Smith-Marsette\u2019s eye on the end zone, running back by committee and Illinois\u2019 big-play offense are all part of today\u2019s Hawkeye 10 @ 10.

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

Here is today\u2019s Hawkeye 10 @ 10:

1. One of few constants for the Iowa football team during its 6-4 start has been the work of Ihmir Smith-Marsette and the Hawkeye kickoff return unit.

Smith-Marsette averages 31.9 yards on returns, ranking second in the country after 15 returns this season.

As a group, Iowa ranks third nationally with an average of 28.5 yards per return and Smith-Marsette believes that success is a result of keeping his eye on the prize.

\u201cWhat I think about is it could potentially go to the house,\u2019\u2019 he said. \u201cI always thank everybody that blocks, and before we go out there, I tell them, \u2018Hey, listen, this one could go to the house. Let\u2019s go get it.\u2019\u2019\u2019

That hasn\u2019t happened yet, but Smith-Marsette and the kick return unit is giving Iowa an edge in field position.

\u201cGo out there and attack each and every drive,\u2019\u2019 Smith-Marsette said. \u201cOnce I cross the 30, I\u2019m confident the offense is going to do what they have to do to put the ball in the end zone.\u2019\u2019

Illinois has allowed one kick to be returned for a touchdown this season.

2. Offensive guard Ross Reynolds said the little things are separating the Hawkeye offense from achieving its objectives on the ground, where the goal is to average 4.5 yards per carry.

\u201cIt\u2019s the detail things. I know that\u2019s cliche, but it is the truth,\u2019\u2019 Reynolds said. \u201cWe have to keep focused on the details because they do make a difference.\u2019\u2019

Illinois has the Big Ten\u2019s most porous run defense, allowing 247.9 yards per game on the ground.

3. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz does not believe that Iowa\u2019s running backs by committee approach is impacting performance.

The Hawkeyes plan to continue to rotate Mekhi Sargent, Ivory Kelly-Martin and Toren Young at the position, where the three have combined to rush for 1,275 yards through 10 games.

\u201cI think it\u2019s a matter of us being a little more cohesive and trying to push this thing through,\u2019\u2019 Ferentz said. \u201cIt\u2019s kind of like our team overall. We\u2019ve got to push this thing through and do things a little better.\u2019\u2019

4. Reggie Corbin became Illinois\u2019 first 1,000-yard rusher since 2010 last week when he topped that plateau with a 59-yard game on nine carries at Nebraska before exiting with a foot injury.

\"Minnesota

Illinois running back Reggie Corbin (2) is ushered into the end zone by teammate AJ Bush, Jr. in the second half of Saturday's game against Minnesota in Champaign, Ill.

Coach Lovie Smith said he is \u201chopeful\u2019\u2019 that Corbin will be available to play against the Hawkeyes.

Before the junior reached 1,000 yards the last Illini back to top that mark was Mikel Leshoure who ran for a school-record 1,697 yards in 2010.

5. Receiver Tyrone Tracy saw action in his third game for Iowa last week and coaches have said the hope is for the freshman to still redshirt this season if at all possible.

That would limit Tracy to action in one more game for the Hawkeyes.

It\u2019s part of the juggling act that is occurring as coaches work with changes made to redshirt rule.

Coach Kirk Ferentz has said Iowa\u2019s objective remains to preserve potential redshirt candidates wherever possible, but position needs will ultimately dictate how that plays out.

6. Illinois quarterback A.J. Bush ran for 187 yards at Nebraska last week, breaking Juice Williams\u2019 school record for rushing yards by a quarterback in a sing game but 13 yards.

\u201cHe\u2019s a threat to run with it any time he has the ball in his hands,\u2019\u2019 Iowa defensive end Parker Hesse said. \u201cHe\u2019s someone we\u2019re going to have to be aware of and do what we can to take him off of his game.\u2019\u2019

7. Coach Kirk Ferentz said it is possible that sophomore punter Ryan Gersonde could see some action for Iowa moving forward, while still preserving a redshirt year.

\"081018-media-day-013\"

Iowa punter Ryan Gersonde poses for a picture, Friday, August 10, 2018, during Hawkeye football media day held at the practice facility in Iowa City.

Gersonde has not appeared in a game yet this season, but would still be able to redshirt if he were to punt in any of the Hawkeyes\u2019 remaining games.

\u201cRyan is in a spot where we can play him without being penalized now, which is really nice,\u2019\u2019 Ferentz said. \u201cThere are probably a couple of other guys, too, that we\u2019re looking at who might be able to help us in some way, maybe small roles, that type of thing, to help us win games.\u2019\u2019

Starting punter Colten Rastetter averaged 34.9 yards on seven punts last week.

8. From the perspective of NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr., three Hawkeye underclassmen rank among the top-10 draft picks at their respective positions if as draft-eligible players they were to leave college early and put their name into consideration for the 2019 NFL draft.

\"Iowa

Iowa tight end Noah Fant runs from the defense of Purdue safety Jacob Thieneman in the first half of Saturday's game in West Lafayette, Ind.

Updating his \u201cbig board\u2019\u2019 of prospects on Wednesday, Kiper lists Noah Fant as the No. 1 draft-eligible tight end and has T.J. Hockenson as the fifth-best draft-eligible tight end.

Kiper also has Iowa quarterback Nate Stanley listed at number nine among quarterback prospects.

9. The Illinois offense Iowa is preparing for is one of the most explosive in the nation.

\"New
New Illini logo

The Fighting Illini rank fifth nationally with an average of 6.29 yards per carry and trail only Pittsburgh (7.63) and Clemson (7.07) with an average of 6.93 yards per carry in conference games at the FBS level.

Illinois leads the FBS with 30 runs of 30 or more yards this season, a collection that includes eight runs that have gone for 50 or more yards.

10. The National I-Club will host a Hawkeye Huddle on Saturday prior to the game at Illinois.

The free, pregame reception is scheduled to run from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at the Illinois Activities and Recreation Center, 201 E. Peabody St., in Champaign and is open to the public.

The huddle will include cash refreshments, snacks, door prizes and appearances by Herky and the Iowa cheerleaders.

IOWA CITY \u2014 Mekhi Sargent may miss the warm temperatures and sandy beaches he enjoyed growing up in Key West, but in a lesson-filled first season at Iowa, the sophomore running back has found football paradise.

\"It hasn\u2019t always been easy, but this is where I want to be,\" Sargent said. \"To be playing in the Big Ten, it\u2019s everything I always wanted. It\u2019s what I dreamed of growing up.\"

Sargent made the first start of his career for the Hawkeyes last week against Northwestern and tops the depth chart at running back again as Iowa works toward Saturday\u2019s 2:30 p.m. game at Illinois.

He\u2019s earned that opportunity with his work as part of a three-player rotation at running back, and Sargent continues to split time with Toren Young and Ivory Kelly-Martin.

Sargent brings a level of elusiveness to the position, using his 5-foot-10, 210-pound body to effectively work inside and out in the run game in addition to providing quarterback Nate Stanley with an effective option as a receiver.

Through 10 games, Sargent has carried the ball a team-leading 109 times for 454 yards, second on the team to the 480 yards Young has gained in 101 rushes.

He has also caught 12 passes for 142 yards and is currently Iowa\u2019s fifth-leading receiver.

Sargent earned his starting opportunity after leading Iowa with 91 rushing yards at Penn State and collecting two of his team-leading six rushing touchdowns the following week at Purdue.

He also led Iowa with 27 rushing yards last week as the Hawkeye ground game was limited to 64 yards by Northwestern.

He also had the first of Iowa\u2019s two fourth-quarter fumbles, the first lost by an Hawkeye back in 490 carries dating to a James Butler fumble in the second quarter of a late-October game in 2017 against Minnesota.

\"All you can do is try to learn from those situations and make certain that the next time you\u2019re in that position that you do your job, take care of the football and keep things moving in the right direction,\" Sargent said.

For the most part, Sargent has helped the Hawkeye offense more forward.

He arrived at Iowa in June following an all-American redshirt freshman season at Iowa Western Community College, where he rushed for 1,449 yards on 205 carries last season.

Sargent arrived in Council Bluffs having never visited the campus before enrolling at the junior college but knowing how highly coach Scott Strohmeier\u2019s program was regarded in helping players get to the next level.

\"It turned out to be a great decision,\" Sargent said. \"Growing up in Key West, it\u2019s not a place that a lot of recruiters get to. Our road games in high school, they were all pretty much a three-hour bus ride. It\u2019s hard to get noticed when you play high school ball there.\"

That didn\u2019t deter Sargent from competing. His playing weight has been over 200 since his sophomore year of high school, and he\u2019s learned how to use that size to complement his quickness.

A first-team all-state selection as a senior at the high-school level in Florida, Sargent made the most of his time at Iowa Western, including adjusting to a different climate.

\"The cold, it was something new for me. I continued to compete but there were a couple of days that first winter, it almost chased me back home,\" Sargent said.

Both Sargent and the Hawkeyes are glad that didn\u2019t happen.

Coach Kirk Ferentz said beyond the team-wide struggles offensively against Northwestern, Sargent has been showing the type of growth Iowa coaches hoped to see from him this season.

\"Nobody had a great night the other night, but the two weeks prior to that, I really thought he was playing really well and doing a lot of great things. But, we\u2019ve got to get him started,\" Ferentz said.

\"It\u2019s not fair to hand a back a ball and expect him to go do it. We didn\u2019t give him enough opportunity or give any of the guys carrying the ball the other night enough opportunity. That\u2019s what we\u2019re going to try to get going a little better this week.\"

Sargent counts on being part of the solution.

Ten games into his Big Ten career, he\u2019s discovered what it\u2019s like to compete at 110,000-seat Beaver Stadium at Penn State, he\u2019s experienced success and dealt with failure, trying to learn from it all.

\"I\u2019ve found that at this level, every little detail is key,\" Sargent said. \"Part of Division I football is that every little thing makes a difference, and I feel like I\u2019ve seen that and understand it. I\u2019m still working, still figuring things out just like the other sophomores are, but we\u2019re all working hard.\"

Following last week\u2019s struggles in the run game, Sargent considers that to be a necessity as the Hawkeyes prepare to face an Illinois run defense that ranks 14th in the Big Ten, allowing 247.9 yards per game on the ground.

\"We\u2019ve watched film. We\u2019ve got to clean up our mistakes. The coaches, they\u2019re putting us in a good position to have success but we have to execute. That\u2019s on us, not them,\" Sargent said.

\"We have a young running back group, but we\u2019ve got to keep being driven and determined to get better to make it all work. We know we can get it done. We just have to make it happen.\"

Key West to Kinnick, it's all paradise for Sargent

A good Thursday to all. Some parts south and east of the Quad-Cities are getting scattered snow showers. The Quad-Cities proper is not expected to get any snow until Friday night and Saturday.

Here are the weather details from the National Weather Service.

The Quad-City region is under a Hazardous Weather Outlook.

The outlook states, \"Light snow will skirt in across the far eastern and southeastern portions of the Outlook Area today. Areas generally along and east of a line from Macomb, to Princeton Ill., may receive from a half inch up to an inch of snow accumulation this morning through early afternoon before the snow moves off to the east. This may lead to localized slick spots on area roads in these areas.

\"Snow is likely Friday night through Saturday, with accumulations of 1 to 3 inches possible. This may lead to slick spots on area roads. Also, brisk northwest winds could potentially cause some visibility restrictions. There is still uncertainty on the exact track and strength of the system.\"

Stay tuned for later updates and forecasts.

1. A high near 40 degrees

Today will be sunny with a high near 40 degrees and a low around 30 degrees.

Friday will be partly sunny with a high near 42 degrees.

Chris Stapleton won the most awards at the 2018 Country Music Association Awards and had the show's best performance, almost capping a perfect night. That was until Keith Urban surprisingly won the top prize \u2014 entertainer of the year \u2014 moments before the three-hour show wrapped Wednesday night.

Urban last won entertainer of the year in 2005 and also beat out Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney for the prize. Stapleton, however, cleaned house at the CMAs, winning four awards including male vocalist, song and single of the year.

The CMAs, which aired on ABC, also took time to honor those affected by the deadly wildfires in California.

\"We send our love to you,\" said Carrie Underwood, also mentioning the \"brave firefighters.\" Underwood worked triple-duty as co-host, performer and nominee at the CMAs. She was teary-eyed when she won female vocalist of the year. Read more.

\"110218-248-Homecoming-007\"

Soldiers from the Iowa National Guard 248th Aviation Support Battalion participated in a homecoming ceremony Nov. 2 at the Davenport Army Aviation Support Facility. Now, nearly every member of the\u00a0 Battalion \u2014 about 366 out of 400 soldiers \u2014 is being told that they must return wages they were overpaid by the federal government during their deployment.

The day after soldiers from the Iowa National Guard were celebrated in a homecoming ceremony in Davenport this month, they were told the bad news.

Nearly every member of the 248th Aviation Support Battalion \u2014 about 366 out of 400 soldiers \u2014 were overpaid by the federal government. And the government intends to get its money back.

During the battalion's recent year-long deployment to Kuwait and Iraq, soldiers were overpaid amounts ranging from a few dollars to several thousand dollars each, Lt. Col. Michael Wunn, a spokesman for the Iowa National Guard, confirmed this week. Read more.

Quad City International Airport

A Quad-City Times reader has this to say: \"My family travels via the Quad-City International Airport several times a year and one thing we've noticed is that the hours that the restaurant and gift shop are opened aren't very accommodating to passengers. Last week we arrived before 5 p.m. and the restaurant was already closed and the gift shop was locking their gates. Passengers who may have traveled all day don't have the opportunity to get a warm bite to eat before heading to a hotel or a road trip to their destination. We've personally received meal vouchers from an airline due to a flight cancellation and as the restaurant was closed, the voucher wasn't of much use. As the airport is trying to attract customers, can you find out if they plan on expanding their services to passengers?\" Check out the answer from our Ask the Times columnist Roy Booker.\u00a0

6. Amanda's pick: Festival of Trees

\"111817-Festival-of-Trees-003\"

Festival of Trees began as the brainchild of founder Diane Sulg to pull the Quad-Cities out of the economic doldrums of the 1980s. It has grown into a 10-day celebration that heralds the holiday season.

Every Thursday, entertainment reporter Amanda Hancock puts out a list of six fun things to do in the Quad-Cities. This week the spotlight shines on the annual Festival of Trees celebration.

Here's what she says about the festival.

The 33rd Annual Kwik Star Festival of Trees kicks off Saturday and runs through Nov. 25 at the River Center in downtown Davenport. Check out the display\u00a0of over 150 designer trees and other holiday items that are sold to raise money for Quad-City Arts, an area nonprofit arts organization.

Also on Saturday is the\u00a0Festival of Trees Holiday Parade, featuring helium balloons, marching bands, clowns, floats and more, which steps off at 10 a.m.\u00a0at the intersection of Pershing Avenue and 3rd Street. Admission costs\u00a0$10 for adults, $6 for those over 60 and $3 for kids ages 2-10. For more info, visit\u00a0qcfestivaloftrees.com. Read the rest of her list.

The day after soldiers from the Iowa National Guard were celebrated in a homecoming ceremony in Davenport this month, they were told the bad news.

Nearly every member of the 248th Aviation Support Battalion \u2014 about 366 out of 400 soldiers \u2014 were overpaid by the federal government. And the government intends to get its money back.

During the battalion's recent year-long deployment to Kuwait and Iraq, soldiers were overpaid amounts ranging from a few dollars to several thousand dollars each, Lt. Col. Michael Wunn, a spokesman for the Iowa National Guard, confirmed this week.

\"When National Guard Soldiers deploy in a federal status supporting an overseas contingency, their pay is managed by the active duty Army component,\" Wunn explained in an email Tuesday. \"This includes starting and stopping pay according to each Soldier's dates of duty.

\"It appears the problem stems from an issue at the demobilization station (Ft. Hood, Texas) that caused some members of the battalion to continue receiving their active duty pay and/or entitlements once their active duty orders ended.

\"As a result, impacted Soldiers incurred a debt to the federal government for pay they should not have received but did that now must be recouped. The Iowa National Guard took immediate action to notify Soldiers of this problem as soon as it was discovered. In fact, many Soldiers have already taken steps to repay this money.\"

The wife of a Bettendorf man who serves with the 248th said news of the error was conveyed the day after a homecoming celebration at the Davenport Army Aviation Support Facility. Each soldier was required to sign a paper, acknowledging the debt, she said. But the soldiers were not provided any paperwork explaining when or how the overpayments were made, she said.

The woman spoke on the condition of anonymity, saying that her husband feared \"backlash\" from leadership. She said the situation creates a hardship for many returning soldiers, given they are being told to repay the money by the end of the year, but the 248th has only one opportunity for drill pay remaining this year.

Wunn said withholding drill pay is one of several options for the soldiers.

\"We understand this creates a hardship for those affected,\" he wrote. \"The Defense Finance and Accounting Services provides Soldiers with a variety of options to repay the debt they incurred as a result of the overpayment.\"

Options are: Army keeps 100 percent of monthly checks until the debt is paid; solider decides on a monthly payment to be taken from pay; two-thirds of base pay is taken each week; soldier can write a check for the entirety of the debt.

Money owed ranges from $2 to $4,500, depending on rank, years of service, entitlements and duration of the payment error, Wunn said.

\"Soldiers are not required to have the debt paid in full before the end of the year, but they must understand that if they don't have their debt settled before the end of the current tax year, they will need to file an amended tax return for 2018 once the debt is repaid,\" he wrote.

U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa, reacted angrily to the request.

\u201cIt is completely unacceptable that a payroll error made by the Army could now cause financially harmful consequences for our soldiers, who already sacrifice so much in service to our nation,\" he said Wednesday afternoon. \"The Army must work with each individual soldier to ensure that they do not face any financial harm or difficulty. I encourage any service member in Iowa who was affected by this failure at the Department of Defense to reach out to my office if you are in need of assistance.\u201d

A white satin wedding dress with lace and pearl beading hangs on a side wall. Fold it into a plastic grocery bag, and it's yours for $1.

Such are the bargains you'll find these days at what may be the Quad-Cities' longest-running resale operation \u2014 the King's Daughters Thrift Shop in Moline \u2014 that is going out of business on Wednesday.

The shop opened in 1927 and has operated at several locations before settling in the 1960s in a street-level commercial space in the Berglund Building at 1321 5th Ave., Terry Iams, a King's Daughter officer, said. That's nearly 92 years.

King's Daughters, now the International Order of the King's Daughters and Sons, is a nonprofit, interdenominational Christian service organization incorporated in 1888 in Chautauqua, New York, where it is headquartered, Iams said. The \"king\" refers to God.

The first Quad-City group was organized by Katherine Deere Butterworth, John Deere's granddaughter, Iams said.

Everyone who works in the store is strictly a volunteer, with all proceeds going to charity, including scholarships for nursing students at Trinity-Unity Point and Black Hawk College.

\"People like to donate here because no CEO is getting a big salary,\" long-time volunteer Sue Lingris said earlier this week as she helped with sales in the rapidly emptying store. \"After we pay the heat and light, everything goes to scholarships.\"

But it is the \"volunteer\" aspect that forced the decision about two months ago to close the store, Iams said. As membership in King's Daughters has declined \u2014 an experience shared by many long-time clubs and organizations \u2014 the group has found it increasingly difficult to muster enough volunteers to cover the shifts. And with a certain percentage of members leaving the Quad-Cities in winter for Florida, Arizona and Texas, the decision became inevitable.

As Iams said, \"It's hard to get people to work for free.\"

Clearance sales began three weeks ago with the store so jam-packed with merchandise that customers had a difficult time walking through, Lingris said. By now, the selection is pretty picked over. Even so, numerous racks of clothing remain \u2014 men's, women's and children \u2014 and miscellaneous items such as books, board games, dishes, lamps and a few chairs.

On Tuesday afternoon, Pearla Hernandez, a St. Ambrose University student, was having a great time trying on suit jackets and blazers. She's a long-time \"thrifter\" and is \"always on the hunt for good quality,\" she said, gesturing toward a small pile of \"keepers.\"

\"I mean, just look, it's wool. Can you imagine? These could easily be $100 a jacket. And what a timeless piece,\" she said, referring to a gray jacket with a \"Made in U.S.A.\" label.

Because the store has been in business for so long, some customers are fourth-generation, and the women who volunteer there will miss them and the camaraderie of working with other members of their circle, Lingris said.

\"Some of our customers are real melancholy about it,\" she said of the closing.

People came in looking for different things. For many, it was clothing. One long-time customer bought all her children's clothing there and stashed away the money she saved into their college funds.

Monday was always a big day for collectors to swoop through because new merchandise was set out on Saturday, Lingris said.

\"People who came here frequently got to know each other, and we got to know what they were looking for,\" Lingris said. \"We'd take their number and call them if we got something in.

\"Certain people were looking for Pyrex\" and another customer was always on the hunt for Boyds Bears, she said.

Others sought items to use in craft projects, or scouted for wool sweaters to refashion into mittens or \u2014 especially since the advent of eBay \u2014 picked out items they could resell for more online or at a consignment shop.

But closing is not entirely sad in that the store's mission to help others is being picked up by other groups and organizations. \"Churches are giving away clothing,\" Iams said. \"Many other places are meeting the needs.\"

And nowadays there are many more resale and thrift shops than when King's Daughters first opened.

The store is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, and is closed Friday and Sunday. The last official day will be Wednesday, but only \"if we have business,\" Iams said.

Meanwhile, St. Ambrose student Herandez was happy with her $1 purchase of four jackets, two belts and a camisole. As an afterthought, she asked whether the store still had any buttons.

\"Oh, those went a long time ago,\" Lingris said.
