DAVENPORT \u2014 To celebrate its 100th birthday, American Legion Post 26 hosted dozens of veterans, relatives, and civic leaders at its building in Davenport on Sunday afternoon.

The lunchtime event featured speeches from local military and political leaders as well as music, food, reflections on the organization\u2019s century of advocacy and ruminations on its future.

\u201cIn the 100 years of the American Legion\u2019s existence, it has absolutely lived up to the highest ideals of advocating for veterans,\u201d said Maj. Gen. Chris Gentry, U.S. Army Reserve Support Command, First Army at Rock Island Arsenal, in a speech at the Legion hall.

The American Legion is a 501(c)(19) war veterans\u2019 nonprofit based in Indianapolis. It was founded in Paris, in March 1919, by American soldiers following World War I.\u00a0

As of its 100th birthday, the organization boasts some 2 million members across more than 13,000 posts worldwide. Its greatest achievements include the passage of the 1944 \u201cGI Bill,\u201d or Servicemen's Readjustment Act, a sweeping act that democratized college and paved for the way for the suburbanization of America.

In 1982, the Legion became the single largest contributor to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, in Washington, D.C., with a $1 million donation. The wall, a black granite structure that has become an icon of American architecture and patriotism, draws around 5 million visits each year.

Members of Post 26 in Davenport said that they joined the American Legion for the same reason many enlisted in the military: to serve.

\u201cI felt like I owed my country something,\u201d said Donald L. Howard, a 14-year member of the American Legion.

In the early 1960s, Howard served as an airman first class in the U.S. Air Force. He was only 19-years-old when he moved to Colorado Springs, Colo., a hub of training and operations for the Air Force. In Colorado Springs, he met two things that changed his life: his wife, a mathematics teacher, and life outside the family farm, in Pennsylvania.

\u201cI was a hick out in Pennsylvania, living on a farm. I was one of the few in my family that got out of Pennsylvania,\" said Howard, who remembered fondly his three-and-a-half years in Colorado Springs. \"I had a good time there.\u201d\u00a0

In 2017, the American Legion elected its first-ever female national commander, Denise Rohan, an Iowa native who currently lives in Wisconsin.

A few years before, Davenport's Post 26 elected its own first-ever female leader, Marlene Marolf, a former marine who was present at Sunday\u2019s event.

\"I was raised in a patriotic family,\" she said. Her father served in the Army, and she had two sons serve in the Marines. She benefited from the GI Bill's provisions for a college education. \"The military has given me so much,\" Marolf said.

Members of the American Legion come from a wide range of positions with the U.S. Armed Forces. A full list of membership eligibility requirements can be found at\u00a0legion.org/membership/faq.\u00a0

\u201cThere is no rank in the American Legion,\u201d said Mike Novak, commander of Post 26, in his speech before the hall. \u201cWe\u2019re all legionnaires, we\u2019re all comrades. We work together for the same common goals.\u201d

Congressman Dave Loebsack, a Democrat who has represented Iowa's second congressional district since 2007, spoke about the Legion's policy advocacy.

\u201cI have witnessed personally the importance of the American Legion since I\u2019ve been in office,\u201d Loebsack said, discussing how Legion members and officials frequently lobby him about various issues.

\u201cWhile people think lobbying is a bad word, it\u2019s not a bad word. All it means is that you\u2019re coming to advocate your causes and concerns to me,\u201d he said. \u201cAnd there are a lot of things we have to do for veterans.\u201d

Loebsack has announced that he will retire from Congress after the end of his seventh term. On Sunday he was candid about the difficulties facing the Legion, as veterans of the \u201cgreatest generation\u201d age and the share of the U.S. population with military experience declines, according to Pew Research Center.

\u201cI know that you struggle to get younger veterans to come and be a part of this post, and other posts,\u201d Loebsack said. \u201cI will get the word out so long as I\u2019m in office, and even when I\u2019m not, as much as I possibly can, about the benefits of the American Legion and posts like this.\u201d

Other members at the centennial celebration acknowledged past problems recruiting younger veterans. But few expressed panic or concern.

\u201cWe\u2019ll survive,\u201d said Mike Matson, Davenport alderman, 7th Ward, and the previous commander of Post 26. \u201cOur membership is still pretty good. We\u2019re the third-largest legion in the state of Iowa.\u201d

According to Matson, he and the late Allan Johnston, another former commander of Post 26, helped find and rescue the Legion\u2019s 4,000-pound, 2-foot-thick concrete and marble emblem from destruction.

Years ago the emblem was buried under rubble at The Dock restaurant. The emblem was removed soon before the building was demolished.

The emblem now stands outside the Legion building\u2019s front entrance, a symbol of the organization\u2019s pride and heritage.

\u201cThe American Legion is important because we take care of our veterans,\u201d said Dave Jones, vice-commander of Post 26. He called himself \u201cblessed\u201d for his 12-years with the American Legion.

Like others, Jones acknowledged the need for \u201can infusion of younger veterans.\u201d

\u201cSome posts die out due to membership,\u201d he said. \u201cBut I think as long as we are active in the community, we will maintain. I don\u2019t have any doubts. It\u2019ll persevere.\u201d

For the first 5\u00a0\u00bd months of 2019, the number of shots fired incidents in Davenport are down.

Preliminary numbers released by the Davenport Police Department show that 58 shots fired/shootings were reported between Jan. 1 and May 16.

That's down from 86 reported over the same time period in 2018\u00a0\u2014 a 32.5 year-over-year percent decrease\u00a0\u2014 said Davenport Police Maj. Jeff Bladel.

Still, though shots fired incidents are down, gun crimes remain a challenge for police.

\u201cWhen we talk about guns and violent crime, one is just too many,\" Bladel said.

Between Jan. 1 and May 10, nine people have been injured by gunfire, according to the police department.

The most recent shots fired incidents happened within minutes of each other Thursday afternoon in the 2200 block of West 13th Street and at the corner of 12th Street and Wilkes Avenue.

No injuries were reported, but a parked car was damaged in the area of 12th and Wilkes. That incident prompted a 30-minute lockdown at Children's Village West.

Police have not said whether the two incidents are related.

Bladel said the police department is \u201call in\u201d and focused on violent crime and gun crime in the city. One technique they're trying is adjusting staffing levels to put more officers and squad cars out on patrol on all shifts, he said.

The department last year launched a gun unit that is \u201cvigorously investigating all shooting incidents, as well as targeting the most violent offenders in our community,\u201d Bladel said.

He added, \u201cWe\u2019ve also implemented some technologies to include information-led policing. We tried to figure out through information that we received, not only from field contacts from the officers but also from the community. So the community does submit tips, the community does provide some information, but by utilizing information that we have, it allows us to put more focus on on violent crime.\u201d

Police have made 81 arrests on gun-related offenses in that same time period. That number does not include the number of cases that have been kicked up to the federal level, Bladel said.

As of May 15, 143 guns have been confiscated. Of those, 107 were seized in crime incidents, he said.

Officers seized 351 firearms in 2018, compared to 277 in 2017.

Those increases are no coincidence\u00a0\u2014 over the last few years, officers are encountering more guns on the street, Bladel said.

\u201cWe've had two officers that were actually shot in the line of duty within the past 18 months,\u201d he said. \"Officers are encountering them (guns) in more crime calls, foot pursuits, vehicle stops, drug investigations.\"

Last year, the department was approved to purchase a machine that pairs with the National Integrated Ballistic Information Network run by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that will match guns and shell casings to assist in solving gun crimes.

Bladel said the machine could be up and running by early to mid-summer.

The department has a mapping program that shows police areas where there is frequent gun crime and couples it with information about potential suspects.

\u201cFrom time to time, we do get calls in an area that is concentrated in or frequent,\u201d he said. \u201cWe do put extra enforcement in those areas, but we also have to monitor, too, because once you start putting resources in an area, sometimes it just moves the problem.

\u201cIt's definitely something that we have to look at it in a spatial sense of that. We have to be able to know where things are going on so we can deploy resources effectively.\u201d

Other cities in the region have also experienced gunfire, and the frequency has been mixed.\u00a0

According to data provided to the Times, Rock Island had 20 shots fired/shooting reports, up from 12 for the same period in 2018; Moline had three, down from five in 2018; and East Moline had seven. Data was not available from the Bettendorf Police Department.\u00a0

\u201cWe closely analyze all shots fired within the city to look for emerging trends,\u201d Rock Island Police Chief Jeff VenHuizen said via email. \"Based upon trend analysis, as well as intelligence information gathered from a variety of sources, we attempt to best deploy a variety of different resources to address areas impacted by gun violence.\u201d

The basement at the Ward household is scheduled to undergo some renovations.

That's thanks to the family's four sons, Owen, Isaac, Rhys and Evan, who spent hours growing up playing soccer against each other, the result of which was more than a few holes and scratches in the walls.

\"Before school, after school, we'd just be down there getting physical with each other. Passing, doing drills, coming up with ideas that would happen in a game and repeating it over and over,\" Isaac said. \"Whenever the ball hit the wall, my dad would know because he could hear it upstairs so we had to make sure our passes were perfectly set, our touches were perfect so the ball wouldn't hit the wall.\"

That time spent down there is paying off, especially for Isaac and Rhys, who have led the Class 3A No. 4 Spartans to a 14-1 regular season record, which included a dominant undefeated run to an outright Mississippi Athletic Conference title.

The Spartans outscored conference opponents 48-0 en route to winning their second straight title after sharing the honor with Bettendorf last year. They'll open up their postseason Wednesday in a substate semifinal against the winner of Dubuque Senior and Independence.

It's truly a family affair this year for the Spartans, who are coached Isaac and Rhys' father Wayne Ward.\u00a0

\"I'm just taking it all in. We've had an unbelievable season this year,\" said Isaac, a senior midfielder. \"It's really nice to have this opportunity and to have such a good team.\"

Soccer has always been a part of the Ward household. Wayne, Owen and Isaac were all born in England and brought the nation's passion for the sport to the United States when they moved overseas to DeKalb, Illinois in 2002.

After moving to the Quad-Cities in 2008, Wayne began coaching with the Bettendorf Soccer Association, where he had a hand in coaching each of his sons at the club level.\u00a0He took over the helm at Pleasant Valley last season after spending a year as the girls head coach.

Owen graduated from Pleasant Valley in 2017 and Evan is currently in seventh grade, so getting a chance to now coach his sons at the high school level is something the family patriarch doesn't take for granted.

\"It\u2019s always special whenever I get a chance to be with my boys and fortunately they enjoy the same sport that I do and it gives us a chance to be together.\" Wayne said.

That family dynamic could present challenges, but for the most part, they're able to separate the soccer from family.

The familiarity has also helped.

\"It\u2019s pretty nice because we think the same,\" Isaac said. \"Whenever he\u2019s talking about something that people don\u2019t understand or pick up on, I know instantly what he\u2019s talking about.

Isaac has been a key piece for the Spartans the past four years, entering the postseason with 21 goals and 41 assists in his career. With solid field vision and great creativity, he's been especially good at facilitating this season, breaking the school's single-season assist record held by his brother Owen, now with 16 on the year.

\"I think the creativity and the vision come from the fact we watch a lot of soccer at home,\" Wayne said. \"We\u2019re fortunate, when you watch soccer, the camera angles are perfect \u2026 people analyzing the game, slow motion, different angles and I truly think that helps.\"

Rhys, meanwhile, has enjoyed a strong freshman season, scoring nine goals and adding four assists to finish the regular season third on the team in points. He admitted the high school game presents challenges the club game doesn't, but has been able to settle in and be a key piece this season.

Playing with Isaac has helped in that regard.

\"He knows the game so well and he can read the play and it\u2019s great because he\u2019s an amazing soccer player,\" Rhys said of his brother. \"He tries to critique everything I do and tells me what I need to work on and I always listen to him. He knows what he's doing.\"

While winning the MAC is always a goal, it's not the biggest one the Spartans set for themselves at the beginning of the season.

There have been plenty of opportunities for Pleasant Valley to reach the state tournament, including last season when the Spartans fell to Bettendorf in the substate final. The Spartans have been to nine substate finals since 2003 but have never broken through.

Owen and Isaac reached a substate final in 2017, falling 1-0 to Iowa City High, so Isaac knows full well the heartache that comes with losing the final game of a high school career.

It's motivating both him and Rhys this postseason.

\"I remember coming home and how mad and how frustrated they were,\" Rhys said. \"(Owen) always tells me when he comes home, you better win state, you better take it to state because he knows that we can do it. ... It makes me want to work harder and give (Isaac) what he's earned because he puts a lot of effort into our team to make it successful.\"

Following the season, Isaac will attend Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Michigan. He committed to play soccer there this past winter, thanks in part to Jon Sandoval, who coached Davenport West before becoming the Wildcats' assistant coach last fall.

\"I instantly fell in love with the campus and loved everything about it,\" Isaac said. \"Being far from home is something I've always wanted to do after high school, just start a whole new life and being able to get this opportunity is amazing.\"

Isaac leaves for college in August but right now, he's focused on trying to extend his high school career and keep the family together on the soccer field for a couple more weeks.

\"We've been talking about this ever since my dad started coaching high school,\" Isaac said. \"Knowing it's my last opportunity to play in the area, with people that I know and with Rhys as my brother and my dad as a coach, it all plays a huge role.\"

As Nicholas Baer waits for the next chapter in his basketball career to be written, he prepares to continue to script his own unique story.

Since completing his career at Iowa earlier this season, the 6-foot-7 forward from Bettendorf has continued to work on a game he is preparing to take overseas.

\u201cThe work never ends,\u2019\u2019 Baer said prior to joining his brother, current Hawkeye Michael Baer, in speaking to the crowd last week at the Hawkeye Fan Event at the Quad-Cities Waterfront Convention Center in Bettendorf.

\u201cI\u2019m keeping my conditioning at a high level and I\u2019m always getting some shots in. I want to go into this playing at a high level and see where it can lead.\u2019\u2019

The only senior on a 23-12 Iowa team which reached the second round of the NCAA tournament, Baer has plenty to offer a potential employer.

From the start of his collegiate career as a walk-on to becoming the only player in Hawkeye history to top 750 points, 500 rebounds, 100 assists, 100 steals, 100 blocks and 100 3-point field goals, Baer\u2019s growth and progression combine with the versatility in his game to make him a marketable player.

It also provides him with an opportunity to fulfill a dream.

\u201cGetting the chance to go overseas and play, to get paid to play basketball, is something I want to do and something I\u2019ve worked hard to put myself in a position to accomplish,\u2019\u2019 Baer said.

Baer has signed with an agent, Michael Hart, who has a considerable amount of experience in working with players who have found success after college in leagues outside the United States.

His clients include former Hawkeye Mike Gesell.

\u201cI talked to Mike Gesell a bit and I feel good with where everything is at,\u2019\u2019 Baer said. \u201cYou want the right person and organization representing you. It was a big step for me and part of the process to get to the next level. I\u2019m excited about the possibilities.\u2019\u2019

There\u2019s an excitement in that part of things for Baer.

In upcoming weeks, he expects to get a chance to show teams his skills and ultimately, receive an opportunity that will lead to the point on the planet where his professional career will begin.

\u201cI\u2019m anxious to have it all come together and get started,\u2019\u2019 Baer said. \"I'm anxious to find out where I\u2019ll be going and when I\u2019ll be going, all of those things.\u2019\u2019

Until all of that comes to fruition, Baer will continue to do what he has always done.

He\u2019ll continue to work on his game.

He's splitting time between Iowa City and the Quad-Cities, continuing to train on a regular basis and make the most of the time he has right now to spend time with family and friends.

That time has also provided Baer with an opportunity to think not only about where he may be going, but about how far he has come.

\u201cI had a great experience at Iowa and that has given me the chance to be where I am at right now,\u2019\u2019 Baer said.

\u201cThe coaches and the staff there, my teammates, they\u2019ve all prepared me for the next opportunity. It\u2019s up to me to be ready to make the most of it when it comes and every day, I\u2019m working on that to continue to develop as a player and become the best I can become. I\u2019m working every day to make that happen.\u2019\u2019

Baer has always felt right at home in Wells Fargo

The last two months have been something for the history books in this area. An unfortunate slew of new records were registered in the region: 22.7 foot flood crest and 51 consecutive days above major flood stage. I hope the cleanup is going well for everyone that has been impacted by this historic event.

Recreational activities near and around the river have been limited if not completely cut off over the past two months. With cleanup expected to continue in the coming weeks, we will still likely see some closures as things start getting back to normal.

With our weather starting to trend toward the warmer side, it\u2019s time to brace for our hot summer months.

  1. Try to not get too salty over the heat. Even though the humidity isn\u2019t at oppressive levels yet, don\u2019t underestimate the warmth of the sun in the afternoon. If you are finishing runs and you seem to be excessively salty, it\u2019s signaling your body is adjusting to the heat. It\u2019s probably going to take a few runs to get your new sweat rate in order so make sure you are hydrating properly pre/post run.
  2. It doesn\u2019t hurt to cover up a bit. A hat and/or sunglasses should always be on hand to keep the sun from ruining a nice day out. Knocking out the glare from the sun has shown that runners are more relaxed than those who are squinting to block out the rays. If you are anything like me, I can use all the help I can get to make a run easier!
  3. Say no to UVA and UVB rays. Yes, your sunglasses will help block these out but it\u2019s worth noting that you should be using sunscreen to keep yourself from getting a nasty sunburn. Your arms, legs, head and neck are all likely to get roasted especially if you are out in peak hours. Don\u2019t forget to re-apply every few hours due to sweating.

With the heat comes summer race season! We are lucky to live in an area filled with an abundance of races. A quick search will reveal a myriad of race distances to choose from. With all these great events, they provide a great opportunity to gauge fitness for two of our biggest events of the year. In case you aren\u2019t keeping track, the Bix 7 and QC Marathon are approaching. And like clockwork, they will be here before you know it.

Bix 7 \u2013 9 weeks

Wilton Republican Rep. Bobby Kaufmann has decided not to run for an open seat in Iowa\u2019s 2nd Congressional District.

Kaufmann, who is serving his fourth term in the Iowa House, had received encouragement to run in the 24-county district that has been represented by Iowa City Democratic Rep. Dave Loebsack since 2007. Loebsack announced in mid-April he will not seek re-election in 2020.

Kaufmann said he was humbled by the support he received from people who encouraged him to run for Congress. But after giving it thought, Kaufmann said Sunday that he instead will seek re-election in Iowa House District 73, which includes all of Cedar County and eastern parts of Johnson County.

\u201cMy heart lies with the people of House 73 and my Cedar County farm,\u201d Kaufmann said.

In addition to crop and livestock farming, Kaufmann, 33, operates a steel hauling, construction and demolition business.

\u201cI feel my time is much better spent serving here in Iowa rather than in Washington,\u201d said Kaufmann, chairman of the House State Government Committee.

His decision leaves Osceola Mayor Thomas Kedley as the only Republican who has filed for the race. Others mentioned as possible GOP candidates include first-term state Sen. Mariannette Miller-Meeks of Ottumwa, who ran against Loebsack in the past, and Bobby Schilling of Le Claire, who previously served in the U.S. House representing a western Illinois district. Also mentioned have been Sens. Roby Smith of Davenport and Chris Cournoyer of Le Claire, and Republican Fort Madison Mayor Brad Randolph.

Democrat Rita Hart has filed for the seat. The Wheatland farmer and educator is a former state senator and was the Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor in 2018.

When Loebsack, who carried the district 55 percent to 43 percent in 2018, announced his retirement, national political forecasters shifted the race from likely Democratic to tossup.

The 2nd District is one of 21 congressional districts nationwide that flipped from supporting Democratic President Barack Obama to backing Republican Donald Trump in 2016, despite a Democratic voter registration advantage.

In 2018, Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds carried all but five of the 2nd District\u2019s counties \u2014 Johnson, Scott, Lee, Des Moines and Jefferson \u2014 but the Democratic ticket of Fred Hubbell and Hart carried the district by 3 percentage points.

DES MOINES \u2014 Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller admits he has a lot on his plate these days.

Miller, 74, just finished a week in which he and his consumer-protection legal team took on some major players in the pharmaceutical industry and lent his support to one of the newest entries in the 2020 Democratic presidential sweepstakes by traveling the campaign trail with Montana Gov. Steve Bullock.

A 10-term Democrat in his 37th year as the longest-serving attorney general in the nation, Miller has built a reputation as a fighter for the people he is elected to defend through his work on major litigation that resulted in tobacco, Microsoft and bank mortgage settlements.

But as the state\u2019s chief litigator, Miller soon may have to decide whether he will litigate on his own behalf if Gov. Kim Reynolds does not exercise her item-veto power on legislation sitting on her desk that includes restricting his office\u2019s power to join multistate legal actions outside of Iowa.

Tucked in Senate File 615, a budget bill that appropriates $584 million for a variety of justice-system functions including more state troopers and criminal investigators, is a provision that would require the attorney general to get permission from the governor, Executive Council or Legislature before joining an out-of-state lawsuit.

Iowa law gives the governor authority to veto line items of appropriation bills. So the Republican governor must decide whether she approves the bill passed by the Republican-controlled Legislature in its entirety or strikes the provision that would be the only limitation of its kind on a state attorney general in the country.

Reynolds has not tipped her hand on wat she will decide, but faces a May 27 deadline.

Miller said he has made his case to her.

\u201dI had a good visit with the governor. She heard me out and I had my say,\u201d Miller said in an interview last week. \u201cIt\u2019s in her hands now.\u201d

A bipartisan group of current and former state attorneys general also recently wrote Reynolds imploring her to veto the provision that was sparked in part from Miller\u2019s participation in suits challenging Trump administration policies.

Imposing such limitations on multistate lawsuits would jeopardize the checks and balances inherent with an independently elected attorney general\u2019s ability to challenge deceptive or fraudulent practices, protect consumers and recover financial damages, they argued.

During legislative floor debates last month, Democrats argued the action was politically motivated in the wake of Miller\u2019s decision to join multiple coalitions of state attorneys general in opposing federal policies under Republican President Donald Trump, including a federal clean energy policy, the immigration practice of separating immigrant children from their families and an attempt to place a citizenship question on the upcoming Census.

Republicans countered that Miller was less aggressive in challenging federal policies under the administration of President Barack Obama, a Democrat who won Miller\u2019s early endorsement.

Rep. Gary Worthan, R-Storm Lake, a justice-systems appropriations subcommittee co-chairman who favored the restriction, noted the issue was political \u201cbut that sword cuts both ways.\u201d

\u201cIt\u2019s political because this attorney general has taken part in out-of-state lawsuits completely contrary to actions taken by the Legislature and signed by the governor,\u201d Worthan said during the House floor debate. \u201cThose are the types of action we are trying to restrict \u2026 because it\u2019s the governor and Legislature that sets the agenda for the state, not the attorney general.\u201d

Miller said he believes he has a special obligation to protect the powers and duties of the attorney general but he called it premature to say whether he would bring a legal challenge should the governor sign the restriction into law.

\u201cThat\u2019s something we would look at a little later on,\u201d Miller said. \u201cWe would want to be secure on the law. There are arguments both ways that we would consider.\u201d

Along with the separate of powers concerns, Miller said there also are questions raised by the legislative wording \u2014 such as what would happen if two of the three deciding entities approved an out-of-state action but the third didn\u2019t?

\u201cI don\u2019t know what would be the case,\u201d the attorney general said.

Miller noted that he would not have been barred from taking action last week to join a multistate consumer-fraud legal battle by suing Purdue Pharma and its former corporate leader, alleging the drug company helped stoke the nation\u2019s opioid crisis by engaging in deceptive marketing of highly addictive OxyContin. That lawsuit was filed in Iowa.

However, Miller might have been required to get approval, if the provision becomes law, to join an out-of-state lawsuit alleging a scheme to fix prices for 100-plus drugs. Miller joined 43 attorneys general last week in announcing a lawsuit against Teva Pharmaceuticals and 19 of the nation\u2019s largest generic drug manufacturers alleging a broad conspiracy to artificially inflate and manipulate prices, reduce competition and unreasonably restrain trade for more than 100 different generic drugs.

That lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Connecticut and named 15 individual senior executive defendants at the heart of an alleged collusion conspiracy who were responsible for sales, marketing, pricing and operations.

Iowa consumers could gain substantially from those challenges to pharmaceutical industry practices if the suits are successful. But the financial recovery would not approach the magnitude of the 1998 landmark Master Settlement Agreement with tobacco companies in which Miller played a major role. Iowa has received more than $1.25 billion from tobacco companies over the last 21 years in what was the largest settlement in U.S. history.

Miller counts the anti-smoking efforts in that case, settlements in the Microsoft case and the mortgage foreclosures, and work on criminal sentencing reform by his office, as the hallmarks of his legacy with the possibility that his run could end when his current term expires.

During a recent appearance on Iowa Public Television\u2019s \u201cIowa Press,\u201d Miller offered a caveat to reporters who asked about indications he has made that this term could be his last, telling the panel, \u201cI said that last time and changed my mind, but I think it\u2019s likely that this will be my last term.\u201d

Asked again last week, Miller said, \u201cI\u2019m saying that\u2019s possible. That\u2019s maybe likely but not definite. I haven\u2019t closed any door yet.\u201d

PEORIA, Ill. -- The Quad-Cities River Bandits scored in six different innings to outlast the Peoria Chiefs 11-9 Sunday at Dozer Park, moving to a season-best 13 games over .500.

Trey Dawson's three-run home run in the seventh inning broke a 5-5 tie, the second consecutive game in which a Dawson home run gave the Bandits the lead.

Peoria answered with a two-run single from Brady Whalen in the bottom of the inning to cut the lead to 8-7 but Quad-Cities responded with some insurance runs in the top of the ninth.

The Bandits loaded the bases, setting up a two-out, two-run single from Michael Wielansky to up the lead to 10-7. Jeremy Pena followed that up with an RBI single to widen the gap to 11-7.

Peoria cut into the lead with an RBI double from Leandro Cedeno and a sacrifice fly from Whalen. With the tying run at the plate, Riley Cabral struck out Brendan Donovan to end the game.

Whalen finished 3-of-4 with two doubles and six RBIs to lead all hitters. Cesar Salazar led the Bandits with three hits while Wielansky added two hits and has reached base safely in all 11 games he's played with Quad-Cities.

The Bandits led 2-0 and 4-1 before Peoria battled back, taking its only lead of the game with four runs in the fifth inning off Bandits starter Matt Ruppenthal.

Humberto Castellanos (2-0) earned the win.

Prior to Sunday's game, the River Bandits made a roster move.

Pitcher Felipe Tejada returned to Quad-Cities from extended spring training while outfielder Alex McKenna was placed on the seven-day injured list.

Tejada pitched for the River Bandits in two games earlier this season, allowing two runs while striking out seven batters in five innings of work.

Clinton rallies for win: The Clinton LumberKings scored four runs in the eighth inning to rally for an 8-7 win over the Cedar Rapids Kernels at LumberKing Stadium.

Trailing 7-4 entering the inning, J.D. Osborne hit an RBI double to cut the lead to 7-5. Ricardo Cespedes followed that up with an RBI single to cut the lead to 7-6, then Christopher Torres hit a two-run single to give Clinton its first lead of the game.

Cedar Rapids took a 2-0 lead on a home run from Andrew Bechtold in the second inning, then the Kernels added onto that lead with four runs in the third inning. Gilberto Ceslestino hit a two-run home run, Chris Williams added an RBI triple, then scored on a wild pitch.

Clinton got on the board with a two-run home run from Will Banfield in the bottom of the third inning, then cut the lead to 6-4 on a two-run double by Banfield. Banfield was 2-for-4 with 4 RBIs on the day.

For people who need their lawns mowed, but also want to reduce their carbon footprint, Christian LaCarte, of Park View, has the answer.

He has founded a business called Sustainable Stewards in which he'll mow your yard with an electric mower, powered by batteries that are charged by a solar generator that he created.

And he'll come to your place with the Ego Power mower from The Home Depot in a trailer pulled by his three-cylinder Smart Car.

He also will fertilize, using a natural product.

LaCarte is an environmentalist, and when he worked as a naturalist for the Scott County Conservation Board, he researched sustainability and ways to be more efficient on an individual scale. He looked at alternative energy, lighting, gardening, composting and harvesting rain, and he would teach the public how to be more sustainable at home, on an individual scale.

Although he's changed jobs \u2014 he works for the Scott County Y as director of eight before- and after-school programs for children \u2014 his goal continues.

\"As the Earth changes, we are in need of more sustainable practices,\" the Western Illinois University graduate, said. \"We can all do something as individuals to make our homes and properties more sustainable.\"

He cites Environmental Protection Agency statistics that say that more than 17 million gallons of gasoline are spilled each year while refueling lawn equipment.

The agency also estimates that 5 percent of air pollution comes from gas-powered lawn equipment and that, hour for hour, gas mowers produce 11 times as much pollution as a new car. Among the pollutants are carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, and other volatile organic compounds.

So far he has about a dozen clients. And not to worry if the day is cloudy; LeCarte's lawn mower will work anyway.

Dating to the start of her coaching career at St. Ambrose, Iowa women\u2019s basketball coach Lisa Bluder has annually built teams around their own unique strengths.

That philosophy allowed Iowa to thrive last season by playing a game centered on the skill set of consensus national player of the year Megan Gustafson in the post.

It will also help the Hawkeyes move forward after Gustafson\u2019s graduation following Iowa\u2019s run to the Elite Eight of the NCAA tournament and a school-record 29-win season.

\"We\u2019re not married to a system like some coaches, never have been, and I feel over time that has really benefited our program,\" Bluder said prior to making an appearance at the Hawkeye Fan Event at the Quad-Cities Waterfront Convention Center in Bettendorf last week.

Bluder said her staff has spent the past three-plus weeks formulating plans for just what the Hawkeyes could look like as they prepare to replace not only Gustafson, but Hannah Stewart inside and Tania Davis on the perimeter as well.

\"We\u2019ll be a different looking team next season, but the culture will still be there,\" Bluder said. \"That part of it doesn\u2019t change.\"

The Hawkeyes return an all-Big Ten guard in Kathleen Doyle, who is among 35 players participating this weekend in USA Basketball\u2019s Pan American Games team trials in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

For Iowa, Doyle will be part of an offense that will likely shift to more of a four-out, one-in look next season after being built around the strengths of its inside attack the past few years.

\"We have the perimeter players to make that work, and at this point, I feel like that\u2019s where we are headed heading into next season,\" Bluder said. \"We\u2019ve had success with four out and one in before, and I think we\u2019re excited about the possibilities.\"

Bluder, who has led Iowa to 18 postseason appearances in her 19 seasons with the Hawkeyes, considers putting the different pieces of the personnel puzzle together one of the more enjoyable aspects of her job.

\"Every year, things are at least a little different and figuring out how to put it all together and make it work, that\u2019s coaching,\" Bluder said. \"We\u2019ve been talking about it for nearly a month now as a staff. Certainly when you lose somebody like Megan who has led the country in scoring the past two years, it\u2019s going to be different.\"

The Hawkeyes will get an early opportunity to test things out.

Iowa begins the first of its practices prior to the foreign trip it is allowed to take once every four years in a little over a month.

The Hawkeyes will travel to Spain in early August, and with a significant amount of roster turnover, including the addition of four freshmen to the program, Bluder believes this is the perfect time for that trip to occur.

\"We\u2019ll get a chance to experiment a bit, see how things work and see how they don\u2019t work,\" Bluder said. \"If we try something that isn\u2019t working, we can leave it behind overseas and we still have some time to figure things out before season starts.\"

Despite a rising risk of more frequent and significant flood events, few Iowans and Scott County residents carry flood insurance policies.\u00a0

As of Feb. 28, 2019, there were 11,659 insured residential and commercial structures across the state, including 1,034 structures in Scott County, said Alex Bruner, a spokesperson with Federal Emergency Management Agency. Only 1.5% of residential structures in Scott County were insured against flooding, including only 24% of residential structures located in the Special Flood Hazard Area.\u00a0

The hazard area designated by FEMA is where the National Flood Insurance Program requires the purchase of flood insurance for homeowners with mortgages, and where floodplain management regulations must be enforced.\u00a0

But Scott County is above Iowa's state average, where fewer than 1% of residential structures, including fewer than 12% of structures in the high-risk area, are covered by flood insurance, said Bruner.\u00a0

\"(Iowa) ranks fairly low when compared with the residential insurance uptake of other states,\" Bruner said. \"Motivating factors for purchasing flood insurance include household budget, understood risk, legal requirement to purchase and an awareness that homeowner's insurance and renter's insurance does not provide coverage.\"\u00a0

With the most recent, record-breaking flood that drowned a portion of downtown Davenport, Insurance Agent Jeff Kaisler, with Nelson Brothers Agency in Bettendorf, said there's a chance he'll gain more clients seeking flood insurance.\u00a0

After major flooding, such as in 1993 and 2008, FEMA data show the number of flood insurance policies in Iowa skyrocketed.

\"A notable spike in the number of Iowa structures insured by the NFIP occurred after the 2008 flooding event and lasted for a few years (until 2011),\" Bruner said, adding one reason for the increase was the issuance of group flood insurance policies as part of disaster assistance provided to qualifying residents after the flood.\u00a0

But, Iowa is still a tough state to market flood insurance. And policyholders remain in the minority.

Kaisler argued the main reason for the lack of flood insurance policies is, \"they aren't cheap.\"\u00a0

\"It's very cost prohibitive,\" he said. \"The problem is it's a no-win situation. Homeowner's insurance doesn't cover flood, so the vast majority of the people who buy flood insurance are those who need it. But if you're in the main flood zone, it's very expensive.\"\u00a0

Homeowner insurance policies don't cover flooding, which is broadly defined as an excess of water on two or more adjoining properties or two more acres of normally dry land.

Flood insurance covers physical damage to buildings caused by any water that comes through the foundation or floor. If a sewer backup is caused by flooding, that's also covered.\u00a0

Kaisler said another reason many property owners don't have flood insurance is that it often doesn't cover personal property in basements or below ground.

\"The biggest problem with flood insurance is it's below ground. It covers structures and mechanical only. So if a homeowner has a finished basement, the drywall, carpeting, furniture, electronics\u00a0\u2014 none of that is covered below ground,\" he said, adding there are some exceptions for ground level, walk-out basements.

He said most people who carry flood insurance do so because they're required to by their mortgage company, and others typically carry building or personal property coverage, so above-ground belongings are insured.

For vehicles, most comprehensive auto insurance policies will protect against flooding.

For downtown businesses that were recently flooded out, Kaisler said many building owners are insured against flooding, but the tenants\u00a0\u2014 the business owners\u00a0\u2014 are not.\u00a0

\"I know of one business down there that's renting, and they do not have flood insurance because it's not cheap,\" he said. \"For tenants, it's their personal property, such as furniture and tables and equipment. So many don't have flood insurance to cover that kind of thing. Flood insurance would only cover the building in the interest of the owner.\"\u00a0

As the Quad-Cities dry out\u00a0\u2014 excluding recent rains\u00a0\u2014 and property owners assess damage, organizations are promoting other resources available.\u00a0

Residents impacted by recent flooding now can apply for aid from FEMA for help with repairs or temporary housing, thanks to the federal disaster declaration. The federal Individual Assistance program can provide homeowners, renters and businesses with grants and low-interest loans to help pay for temporary housing, home repairs and other disaster-related expenses.\u00a0

In addition, the\u00a0U.S. Small Business Administration opened a recovery center in Davenport to offer services to businesses affected by the recent disaster.

In 1993, Davenport received $1.9 million in federal assistance funds\u00a0\u2014 a small portion of the $1.1 billion spent across deluged Midwestern states. Small Business Administration low-interest loans for Scott County totaled around $4.1 million, according to previous Quad-City Times reporting.\u00a0

Whether the most recent historic flood will encourage more Scott County residents to purchase flood insurance remains to be seen. But, as heavy rains caused flooding across western Iowa in March, Bruner said more than 200 NFIP claims were filed in the state that month.\u00a0

\"The value of having flood insurance cannot be ignored,\" Bruner said. \"Just one inch of water can cause $25,000 in damage to a home.\"

The Amana Heritage Society (AHS) has announced its intention to purchase the Ruedy Home and Communal Kitchen Museum in Middle Amana, one of the most historically significant properties in the Amana Colonies, a National Historic Landmark.

This 1863 structure served as one of more than 50 communal kitchens feeding a communal-era population peaking at 1,800 members around 1890. The property retains all of its original structures, including residence, kitchen, wash house, woodshed, and chicken house.

During modernization in the Amanas, most wash houses and woodsheds fell out of use and were then demolished.

Unlike most families after the Great Change in 1932, the Ruedy family required no additional living space, leaving the communal kitchen untouched. In 1955, the kitchen and dining room opened as a museum and the AHS has leased it since 1983. Over the past decade, the Ruedy family has been donated its extensive artifact collection to the site.

Owning the entire property now allows AHS to offer a wider range of interpretation of Amana\u2019s culinary heritage, how the kitchens functioned, and the high degree of organization in this highly successful planned community. Authentic communal dinners have been a major part of programming for the past two seasons, along with sampling opportunities that will expand.

Members have already donated more than two-thirds of the funds required to purchase the property.

It began as a hardware store with apartments on the second floor and, during its 124-year history, it had many uses. When the building was purchased in 2007 by David Wise and Dick Ryan it was in very bad condition and in need of major restoration. Wise urged the city to apply for National Register designation for the downtown so he could qualify for the listing\u2019s 15 percent tax credit to help with renovation costs. This was accomplished and the Sundeen was the first downtown building to use this economic development tool.

The field has solidified. It should be done growing.

We think.

We hope.

With two more entrances this week, the record-setting field of Democratic presidential candidates grew to 23 or 24, depending on whether one counts one particular candidate\u2019s disruption campaign.

Either way, that\u2019s a lot of candidates. There are as many Democratic presidential candidates as there are hours in a day, or carats in pure gold.

That should be the end of the seemingly endless line of candidates, although it seems dangerous to say so conclusively. Let\u2019s leave just the tiniest bit of wiggle room for, \u201cYou never know,\u201d and hope it doesn\u2019t come to that.

Meantime, let\u2019s break down the field into more easily digestible portions as we try to get a handle on this thing.

There\u2019s Joe Biden, the expansive field\u2019s leader in early polling and a former vice president and U.S. Senator.

There are seven current U.S. Senators: Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Kirsten Gillibrand and Michael Bennet.

There are seven current and former U.S. House members: John Delaney, Tulsi Gabbard, Seth Moulton, Tim Ryan, Eric Swalwell, Beto O\u2019Rourke and Julian Castro.

There are three current or recently former governors: Steve Bullock, John Hickenlooper and Jay Inslee.

There are three mayors: Pete Buttigieg, Bill de Blasio and Wayne Messam.

There is businessman Andrew Yang and author Marianne Williamson.

And then there\u2019s the final candidate, Mike Gravel, a former U.S. Senator who said when he got into the race his only goal was to qualify for and make noise in the debates.

(For this reason, some media outlets do not count Gravel as an official candidate, even though he has filed the official paperwork and in his effort to qualify for the debates has surpassed some of the other, more \u201cserious\u201d candidates in fundraising efforts.)

We recall with longing the 2016 election cycle, which despite featuring no incumbent at the end of President Barack Obama\u2019s second term was essentially a two-candidate race for the Democratic nomination between Sanders and Hillary Clinton, the eventual nominee.

That\u2019s right, last cycle there were essentially two Democratic candidates; this cycle there are two dozen.

Experts say the field has exploded largely due to a mixture of no clear national leader for the Democratic Party and an incumbent Republican president in Donald Trump who has stoked Democrats\u2019 passion and has weak national job approval ratings.

Early polling on the race favors Biden, but time will tell whether that\u2019s entrenched support or more a product of strong name recognition for a former vice president.

Sanders, who has his own strong name recognition after his 2016 primary run, is second in most polls.

From there, the field tightens and there is a pack of candidates averaging in the high single digits.

The Iowa caucuses are still roughly nine months away. There is still more than enough time for the field to change, perhaps even dramatically. Iowa Democrats have a big decision to make, and a deep field of candidates from which to choose. Likely, many of those Democrats will use most of these nine months to make their decision.

Meantime, those two dozen or so candidates will continue to frequent Iowa coffee shops, event centers the state fair and everywhere else in-between.

Raygun, the T-shirt story in Des Moines\u2019 East Village known for its quirky sense of humor, has a shirt that says \u201cHi, do you live here or are you running for president?\u201d

Brother, if that isn\u2019t the truth.

At the end of the day, let us all cheer the true heroes of this story: Michael Bloomberg, Sherrod Brown, Eric Holder, Terry McAuliffe and Jeff Merkley. To you fine gentlemen who considered presidential runs but ultimately made the rare decision to stay out of the race, we salute you.

And we thank you.

Because, jeez, Iowa will find a way to manage these 24 candidates. But 29 would just be too many.

Top officials in the Bettendorf School District were discussing whether to close Thomas Jefferson Elementary School months before a decision was made.

\u201cPrior to the August vote, I did speak with Ryan [Fick of Mel Foster] about that property, started looking at prices of property, in case the board did approve to consolidate the two buildings,\u201d Superintendent Mike Raso said in a closed meeting Oct. 8.

The board unanimously approved a consolidation between Mark Twain and Thomas Jefferson Elementary Schools at the end of this school year, which turned contentious for the Jefferson community. While the school technically closes at the end of this school year, it will still be used for at least the first half of next year to house students while construction on the new Mark Twain building is completed.

Ultimately, the district announced its plan in April to sell the Thomas Jefferson Elementary School property to Applestone Homes. While the company is paying $100,000 for the property, that money will immediately be paid into an escrow account, and they are set to receive a $10,000 rebate for each of the first 10 homes that are ready for occupancy, provided they\u2019re move-in ready by Dec. 31, 2028. After that date, any money left in the account goes back to the district.

While Iowa Code allows for closed meetings to discuss the sale or purchase of property, the minutes and audio become public once the agreement is official; the district on Wednesday shared minutes and audio from five closed meetings between March 19, 2018, and April 15, after Applestone had signed the agreement.

Here\u2019s what they talked about.

Short-term versus long-term revenue

\u201cAs long as we don\u2019t lose money, we should walk away smiling,\u201d Director Gordon Staley said at the Oct. 8 meeting. \u201c... I don\u2019t think this is money-making for the district.\u201d

During the Oct. 8 meeting, those present threw out anywhere from $200,000 to $250,000 as a possible sale price for the Jefferson property, but even then the board was looking to bring in more tax revenue\u00a0\u2014 and potential students\u00a0\u2014 for the district.

\u201cIt\u2019d be nice to make $150,000, $200,00 on it, but if we can break even, then I say we get out,\u201d Staley said.

Director Andrew Champion said the Neil Armstrong Elementary property that was sold to a California-based church was a \u201clesson learned.\u201d

\u201cOne of my biggest concerns with leaving the building standing is someone comes and buys it and we get another Armstrong\u00a0\u2014 a building that sits there for 10 years and nothing happens to it,\u201d Champion said at the Oct. 8 meeting, adding that he thinks removing the building should be in any contract. \u201cI think, as a board, our goal needs to be getting that property to tax-paying property.

\u201cEspecially in a district with our closed boundaries\u00a0\u2014 what would have happened if Armstrong had been sold with the condition of being demoed? There could be housing there now, and that could be feeding our schools and our enrollment.\u201d

Raso said this week that because schools are such a \u201cspecific purpose,\u201d they\u2019ll never make a \u201cbunch of money\u201d on a sale.

\u201cDown the road, we get families and the tax base in there,\u201d he said.

By the next closed meeting on the Jefferson property, Dec. 20, the board had moved to discussing the best way to make sure the property sale would benefit the district in the long-run, by increasing revenue from property taxes and attracting families.

Board President Adam Holland said he thought it would be best to have the district\u2019s attorney draw up a request for proposals, rather than list the property with a real estate agent who would need commission.

\u201cWe\u2019re still going to have to hire a lawyer,\u201d he said. \u201cAt that point, we distribute for RFPs. Most developers are looking for these anyways.\u201d

The need to develop the land into something else continued to be reiterated.

\u201cThat standing building will haunt this district\u201d Champion said, while other Dec. 20 meeting attendees can be heard agreeing. \u201cIt will come back to bite us.\u201d

The other bidder

Bettendorf received two bids at the March 18 closed meeting: one from Applestone, proposing single-family homes, and one from Sagic, proposing townhomes. Both were offering $100,000 for the property. Applestone\u2019s proposal, though, included a rebate from the district of $10,000 per home for the first 10 homes; Sagic\u2019s did not, but its proposal would require the property to be rezoned by the city for multi-family homes.

Even in October, before any bids were put in, the board and administration noted issues with multi-family homes on the land.

\u201cI don\u2019t know what the rules are about how big or how small those lots could be, but there would need to be a zoning change to get condominium-types,\u201d former Finance Director Dallon Christensen said.

\u201cI don\u2019t think there\u2019s any appetite for rezoning down there,\u201d said Champion, who lives in the Jefferson neighborhood. \u201cThat\u2019s coming from a neighbor.\u201d

Further, the board was concerned about the \u201ccapacities beyond a cover sheet\u201d with the proposal, which was littered with typos and misspellings, including two different spellings of \u201cSagic.\u201d

Ultimately, the board settled on Applestone Homes, even with the rebates.

\u201cThey pay $100,000. They cover demolition. Then we rebate them up to $100,000 back for the price they paid us. But we\u2019re off the hook for demolition and abatement,\u201d Champion said. \u201cAnd, in the end, the developer has some accountability for getting stuff built down there, rather than letting it sit vacant and not paying taxes, or minimal taxes, and we also hopefully have the incentive of kids moving.\u201d \u00a0

Negotiations

In Applestone\u2019s initial proposal, there was no deadline for when the first 10 houses had to be completed in order to earn back $10,000 each, which drew some concern from the board.

At the March 18 meeting, Champion suggested there needs to be a time frame for the money to be returned back to the district, so it\u2019s not just sitting in an account somewhere for \u201c80 years.\u201d

Still, the board noted that Applestone\u2019s subdivisions have usually been pulled up in three to five years.

\u201cThis is not his first rodeo,\u201d Staley said.

While several board members were skeptical of, or even irritated by, the rebates, no one strongly advocated that they push to eliminate them from the contract.

This week, Raso said the rebates were reasonable because the developers were taking on \u201csome risk\u201d with the project.

Some of the board\u2019s other concerns were addressed and returned for discussion on April 15.

\u201cIt appears to me that this has addressed, as far as its possible, the counter-offer requests,\u201d Vice President Richard Lynch said.

Now, there\u2019s some pressure for Applestone to get houses up as soon as possible\u00a0\u2014 after Dec. 31, 2028, any money left in the district\u2019s escrow account returns to the district.

\u201cIf they don\u2019t demolish, they don\u2019t get the money,\u201d Lynch said. \u201cIf they don\u2019t build single family lots, they don\u2019t get the money.\u201d

David Farmer, board treasurer, estimated that the $100,000 would be earned back in five years, once 10 houses are occupied\u00a0\u2014 and that\u2019s not including any state money for students brought in.

\u201cWe\u2019re not giving away everything,\u201d Staley said.

The Quad-Cities River Bandits scored six runs in the fourth inning and that was all they needed in a 6-2 win over the Peoria Chiefs on Saturday.

The rally started with a two-out walk to Jonathan Lacroix, who came around to score one batter later when Trey Dawson hit his second home run of the season.

Ross Adolph and Austin Dennis then had back-to-back doubles to make it 3-1, and Ramiro Rodriguez singled home Dennis. Jeremy Pena followed with a single, and both he and Rodriguez came home on Alex McKenna's double to complete the scoring.

R.J. Freure (2-1) scattered three hits and four walks over five on-run innings for the Bandits. Joey Gonzalez gave up one unearned run over four innings to get his first save on the season.

LumberKings outslugged

Cedar Rapids tallied 15 hits in topping the Clinton LumberKings 8-2 on Saturday.

Cedar Rapids tagged Clinton starter George Soriano (0-4) for six of those runs in his five innings of work.

Ricardo Cespedes provided a bright spot for the LumberKings, going 3-4 and finishing a home run short of the cycle. Cespedes' ninth-inning triple plated Clinton's second run.

Their first came when Sean Reynolds tripled home Connor Scott in the first inning.

Tricia Collins, owner of Polished Hair Lounge at 735 Federal St. in Davenport, spent Saturday night with other family members, friends and a few of her employees filling and hauling sandbags to put around the building in which her business is located.

With the floodwaters returning, Collins said she is going to try her best to protect her building.

At 18 feet, she said, the floodwaters will be right at the front doorstep.

\"I hope this helps even just a little bit,\u201d Collins said, as she carried a sandbag and placed it on her sandbag wall.

\u201cI\u2019m not just trying to protect myself but my employees,\u201d said. \u201cWe were fortunate the last time we were displaced to split up and go do a bit of work at other salons. But we\u2019re also paying money to them to rent that space for a few days. Meanwhile, the rent doesn\u2019t stop here. We\u2019re trying to avoid that situation this time and keep our clients.

\u201cEverybody understands, and nobody was mad,\u201d she said of her clientele. Even if her building is not flooded, with River Drive closed her clients have to find the back roads to get to the business.

\u201cWe lost eight business days this last time,\u201d Collins said. \u201cThat\u2019s about $10,000 worth of business. That\u2019s a lot of money for a small business. It\u2019s going to take a long time to dig ourselves out of that hole created by the flood. We\u2019re doing whatever we can to keep our head above water.

\u201cWe\u2019re lucky we have friends and family, employees and clients helping with this because our landlord isn\u2019t helping at all,\u201d she added.

Three other business share the building, Collins said. One is the Davenport School of Yoga and there are two call centers in the building.

Meteorologist Tim Gross of the National Weather Service, Davenport, said Saturday night there is a high confidence of the Mississippi River at Lock and Dam 15, Rock Island, will reach 18 feet sometime between May 25 and June 7.

Resident hydrologist Jessica Brooks said in a news release about the rising floodwaters that a break in the rain is expected Sunday afternoon through much of the day Monday. But the threat of heavy rain returns Tuesday.

Brooks said that the distribution of where the heavier amounts of rain fall will make a difference in how high the Mississippi River rises.

Gross said there is low confidence of the river rising to a range of 18.5-20 feet due to the distribution of the rainfall over the next seven days.

Collins said she will be out again Sunday with friends and family, filling, hauling and stacking sandbags.

\u201cI\u2019m on standby for a third load of sand and another thousand sandbags from the city,\u201d she said.

Gross said that there is one benefit from the rains that have hit the middle of the country from Texas all the way to the Canadian border. There are no pockets of drought, or even abnormally dry conditions, throughout the middle of the country, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.

In fact, outside of the normal desert areas, there are very few dry or drought conditions in the U.S.

\u201cIt\u2019s been a long time since the Midwest, from north to south, has been drought free,\u201d Gross said. \u201cBeing completely drought-free is very abnormal for this time of year.\u201d

But it has been a wet spring. In the past 30 days, the Quad-City region and northwestern Illinois has received more than 5 inches of rain. It is the same way in Missouri.

\u201cRainfall amounts have been 125 percent to 175 percent of normal during the last 30 days, from April 18-May 17,\u201d Gross said. \u201cIn Missouri, it\u2019s the same thing.

It\u2019s been a very active late April and early May,\u201d he said.

Collins\u2019 sister, Sarah Collins, owns What A Gem in downtown Davenport, right next door to Me & Billy, which is owned by her parents and her sister, Frances Maus.

Me & Billy will be holding a bar-crawl beginning at 2 p.m. Sunday. Entry is $25. All proceeds will be going to Grow Quad-Cities Fund to help flood victims.

CHARLESTON \u2014 The Alleman girls' track team came into Saturday with hopes of a Class 1A state team trophy, but tough competition and talented teams led to a sixth-place Pioneer finish.

Alleman coach Scott Stoll was proud of how his girls performed, with six finalists accumulating 32 points. The Pioneers were sitting in third in the team race with two events left but missed hardware and a third-place tie by six points.

\u201cWe\u2019re feeling good about what we did,\u201d Stoll said. \u201cMost of the girls improved upon their performances, which is all you can ask for. We were second for most of the meet before some other teams caught up to us at the end, but we were able to dream for a while.\u201d

Two Pioneers just missed gold. Senior Kiah O\u2019Neal (high jump) and sophomore Tori Thomas (pole vault) both earned silver medals.\u00a0

\u201cI had high expectations for myself and I wanted to get first,\u201d said O\u2019Neal, who tied for the top jump at 5-7, but lost out on misses to Arthur junior Kenli Nettles. \u201cBut second is good, just not quite what I wanted.\u201d

The senior reflected on her time as a Pioneer and talked about her experience with the third-place 800 relay (1:46.09) with teammates Natika Woods, Gabbi Loiz and Thomas.

\u201cI loved my track family,\u201d O\u2019Neal said. \u201cWe push each other so much, and the team experience is fun.\u201d

In addition to her pole vault silver with a best of 12 feet, Thomas also placed sixth in the 100 meters with a time of 12.44.

\u201cThe team was pushing me to do my best all year,\u201d Thomas said. \u201cThe team leaders helped me out a lot throughout the day today as well.\u201d

Sophomore Lynleigh Schram also earned points for Alleman, placing seventh in the triple jump with a top leap of 36-11\u00bc.

Stoll knew that the team had set high expectations, but he had words of encouragement following the solid finish.

\u201cI wanted everyone to know they had a good day,\u201d Stoll said. \u201cIt wasn\u2019t an example of anything that we did wrong, it was just other teams performing on all cylinders. It was a good weekend with good moments, and we had smiles on our faces the whole day. I know that we did the best that we could.\u201d

Of the six athletes competing Saturday for the Pioneers, half were seniors. Stoll will miss the leadership that he had on the team but knows that other girls will step up into the leadership roles.

\u201cWe\u2019re losing some great girls. It was an emotional day with many tears of joy,\" he said. \"They have taken us on a journey and we\u2019ve been successful and grown together through the good and the bad.\u201d

CHARLESTON \u2014 One local defending Class 1A state champion was able to repeat at the IHSA Girls Track and Field State Finals on Saturday, while another came up short in both of her title defenses.\u00a0

Orion\u2019s Danielle Taets was looking for repeat titles in both the 100 hurdles and triple jump, but finished third in the triple jump (37 feet, 8\u00bc inches) and fourth in the 100-meter hurdles (14.87).

\u201cThe result is definitely not what I wanted, but I did my best,\u201d said the Illinois State-bound Taets. \u201cWhat more could you ask for?\u201d

The Chargers' senior reflected on her high school career and didn\u2019t seem to regret anything.

\u201cIt\u2019s kind of crazy that it\u2019s all over and that it\u2019s my last time down here,\u201d Taets said. \u201cI\u2019m excited to start a new chapter, but I\u2019m going to miss the awesome people I was lucky to call teammates.\u201d

Fulton's Chloe\u00a0Lindeman was up to the task of defending her shot put title and left little doubt as to the outcome. The Wisconsin-signed thrower's top toss of 47-9\u00bc was over 3\u00bd feet better than the field.\u00a0

However, she was not the only Steamer to walk away with gold around her neck. Fellow senior Daekota Knott unseated Taets as the 1A triple jump queen with a best leap of 38-1\u00be.

Knott also was a member of the Fulton 400 relay team that placed second with a school-record time of 49.90. The rest of the team consisted of Alyjah Carter, Kearra Kohrt and Julia Lehman.

Lindeman, thrilled with her defense, was happy to have more of her team succeeding alongside her this year.

\u201cIt\u2019s good to have even more people here from Fulton and succeeding at the highest level,\u201d Lindeman said. \u201cWe have a lot of freshmen here with us, and it\u2019s good for them to get the state experience. It\u2019s a really great feeling to win here again. I\u2019m really happy to be able to do this with my team here to support me.\u201d

Knott had mixed emotions following her win in the triple jump, which was a senior-year best for her.

\u201cIt was bittersweet,\u201d Knott said. \u201cIt\u2019s great to go out on top, so I\u2019m overwhelmed with happiness. We\u2019ve been working hard together all season, and it\u2019s good to show everyone what Fulton\u2019s got.\u201d

The Fulton relay team surprised the field with their mark, but Kohrt knows that they deserved it.

\u201cIt feels like an honor,\u201d Kohrt said. \u201cThis wasn\u2019t something that was handed to us. We worked really hard to be here and get this done.\u201d

Fulton finished seventh in the Class 1A team results with 28 points, just behind Alleman's sixth-place total of 32.

Morrison sophomore Jordan Gallentine reached the podium in her first year of running track, with an eighth-place finish in the open 400 and a time of 1:01.71, earning valuable experience.

\u201cI was just really grateful to be here,\u201d Gallentine said. \u201cWith this being my first year doing track, it\u2019s surprising and humbling to be able to make it here. I felt a lot of support from my teammates along the way.\u201d

Finally making the podium in her senior year was Geneseo's Josie Brown, who medaled in the 800, as well as the 1,600 and 3,200 relays.

\u201cSuper excited to finally make it onto the podium,\u201d Brown said. \u201cThe goal for my senior year was to get there and it\u2019s so great to be here. ... It took a lot of work to get here, and I\u2019m just thinking about what I\u2019ve overcome.\u201d

Brown earned bronze in the 800 with a time of 2:21.40, and the 1,600 and 3,200 relay teams each finished seventh.

Freshman Ali Rapps opened her Geneseo career with a podium finish, placing fourth in the 100 hurdles with a time of 15.04. She also anchored the 1,600 relay.

Wrapping up her career with one last state final was Moline\u2019s Megan Pittington, who finished eighth in the Class 3A open 400 with a time of 58.85. The state medal was a fitting end to a storied Maroon career.

Justin Sehlin hates losing but loves second chances.

So when the No. 1 singles player for the Pleasant Valley boys tennis team found out he\u2019d be facing Linn-Mar\u2019s No. 1 player Luke VanDonslear Saturday afternoon in the Class 2A state quarterfinals, Sehlin embraced the opportunity.

\u201cAny time you lose, you obviously want to come back and do better,\u201d he said. \"Once I saw that substate pairing, I was pretty excited.\"

The senior got revenge in what turned out to be a dual-clinching win for the second-ranked Spartans.

Sehlin went to his backhand at match point to break VanDonslear\u2019s serve and triumph in straight sets to put the finishing touches on a 5-0 victory over fifth-ranked Linn-Mar at the Quad-City Tennis Club in Moline.

It marks the second time in the last three years and third overall PV will make the trip to Ankeny on May 28 for the team state semifinals.

\u201cI executed a little bit better this time and I think that's why I was able to pull it out,\u201d Sehlin said.

Sehlin, up 3-0 in the second set after winning the first set 6-3, dropped the next two games.

It led PV head coach Randy Brockhage to some encouragement.

\"He's such a student of the game,\" Brockhage said. \"Telling him to move your feet and play to your strengths.\"

After holding serve to make it 5-4, Sehlin felt confident in his ability to break VanDonslear.

As did Brockhage.

\"All the pressure was going to be on Luke and that would play into Justin's favor,\" Brockhage said.

Once Sehlin won the match, the Spartans' celebration began.

\"This puts in it into perspective that we actually can do well at state,\" Jake Dolphin said. \"It'll be fun.\"

With heavy rain impacting the area, the meet was moved to Moline. The location change didn\u2019t faze the Spartans.

Cruising 5-0 over Cedar Falls in the substate final set up a rematch with the Lions, who they beat 5-1 on April 26.

The Spartans, who moved to 11-0 in duals on the season, jumped out to an early 3-0 advantage with straight-set victories by Nathan Wong (No. 2), Muneeb Nadeem (No. 4) and Kiran Marla (No. 5).

Dolphin had to battle adversity in order to claim his victory.

After winning the first set 6-0, Dolphin found himself down 2-1 to start the second set. He needed to break the serve of Kartik Tharwani in order to regain control.

The freshman did just that.

Dolphin turned it around to lead 3-2 and held serve the rest of the match to claim the second set 6-4.

\"The momentum was all in his favor,\" Dolphin said. \"It was a good swing.\"

Brockhage felt his No. 3 singles player didn't play his best, but did just enough to win.

\"His opponent wasn't laying down,\" he said. \"So Jake needed to get his act together, and he did.\"

The Spartans now await their semifinal opponent. It will most likely be third-ranked Waukee, who the Spartans beat 5-4 in the final regular season dual.

\"Focus on Waukee and just think about that first match,\" Brockhage said. \"We'll come in pretty confident knowing we'll be in a dog fight.\"

Danzel McDaniel was playing with a heavy heart. So, too, was Quad-City Steamwheelers teammate Zavier Steward.

However, both battled through their sorrow to celebrate a 48-29, must-win for the local Indoor Football League squad Friday night at the TaxSlayer Center.

\"My aunt and uncle died in a house fire six years ago (Friday), and I woke up thinking about it. It didn't even seem like game day,\" McDaniel said. \"But when I got into the building, the competitive juices started flowing, and I wanted to do something special for my family.

\"I really wanted two interceptions, one for each of them. But I think they'd be happy with the interception and the win.\"

The first pick of the season for the IFL's tackles leader came at a crucial time. The Wheelers were nursing a four-point lead, having just turned the ball over on downs late in the third quarter.

\"I saw the quarterback throw it, and I just dove for the ball,\" said McDaniel, a Chicago native and All-Big 12 Conference defensive back from Kansas State.

\"I didn't realize a teammate was right there behind me, too. I said, 'Sorry, but whoever gets there first.' I couldn't wait for him. I couldn't chance them having a receiver go get the ball. We needed that in the worst way.\"

Five plays later, Steward scored a rushing touchdown from 6 yards out to push the lead to 11 at 34-23 early in the fourth period.

\"I wasn't even going to be here, but my mom talked me into playing,\" said Steward, who skipped a Friday funeral for an older second cousin who died last Sunday in his mother's hometown, nearby rival Cedar Rapids.

\"She said the best thing I could do was score a touchdown and win a game we needed (to honor their cousin's memory).\"

The Wheelers defense followed by posting their fourth stop of the game, with Malik Duncan breaking up his second big pass of the night on a fourth-down throw.

Q-C then averted completely blowing a 21-point, second-quarter lead, with Carlos Wiggins catching his second TD pass of the game to stake Q-C back to a comfortable 41-23 edge with 5:25 remaining.

\"It doesn't get easier from here on out,\" said Steward, a running back and Minnesota native who planned to spend the rest of the weekend with his grieving family.

\"We have three more we have to win. So we can't get too happy about this. But we really needed this one to get the ball rolling in the right direction.\"

With Wheelers greats Jack Walker Jr. and Damon Williams in the Kids' Night crowd of 4,012, the Wheelers snapped a three-game losing streak by winning for just the second time since a 22-point victory at Cedar Rapids on March 15.

In a string of six setbacks in seven games before Friday, the Wheelers had contended into the final minute each time, four of the defeats by a touchdown or less thanks to late scores by their opponents.

\"Our defense has been on the hot seat, so it was great to see them come up clutch,\" quarterback E.J. Hilliard said. \"Our offense didn't score a point in the third quarter and yet we won. That says a lot about our defense overcoming adversity and continuing to battle.\"

The Wheelers (4-7) edged within 1.5 games of the last two playoff spots, shared by Tucson (5-5) and Nebraska (5-5).

QC hoped to gain more ground Saturday night with Nebraska visiting reigning nine-time finalist Sioux Falls (8-2), and Tucson at Bismarck (2-7). Both contests ended after the newspaper deadline.

\"We'll be tuned in,\" receiver Keyvan Rudd said. \"We've got a little rooting interest because we need a little help. Plus, we'll be scouting our next opponent.\"

Sandwiched around the June 7 home finale with Bismarck, the 'Wheelers face road trips to both Nebraska (next Friday) and Tucson (June 15 regular-season finale).

Nebraska's finishing kick also includes trips to basement-dweller San Diego (1-9) and defending champ Iowa (9-1). Tucson also faces unbeaten top-seed Arizona (9-0) twice.

\"Hopefully the odds work in our favor,\" Rudd said. \"Like coach says, if we're clicking, nobody is going to want to see us in the playoffs.\"

DES MOINES\u00a0\u2014 When Raymond Venditti learned Calamus-Wheatland surpassed 40 points at Saturday\u2019s Class 1A state meet, he was stunned.

\u201cIt is very shocking,\u201d he said. \u201cThat\u2019s a big number, especially at a state meet.\u201d

The reward for Cal-Wheat was its first state trophy in boys\u2019 track and field.

Seven months removed from a state runner-up finish in boys\u2019 cross country, the Warriors placed third with 41 points.

George-Little Rock, spurred by a 1-2 finish in the 800, claimed its first championship with 52 points. Council Bluffs St. Albert edged Cal-Wheat for second, 42-41.

\u201cThat\u2019s huge for us,\u201d middle distance ace Chase Knoche said. \u201cThese guys worked so hard since last year, and this has been a dream of ours. Calamus-Wheatland deserves this.\u201d

The 1,600 medley relay championship Friday was the highlight, but the Warriors added to their point total Saturday behind Knoche and Venditti.

Knoche was third in the 800 meters and sixth in the 1,600. Venditti snared bronze in the 200 and sixth in the 100. That was enough to nudge Cal-Wheat in front of Lynnville-Sully.

\u201cIt just shows the tremendous effort that has come out of this squad,\u201d said Venditti, who will run at Mount Mercy College next year. \u201cEven the guys that weren\u2019t here with us, they helped push everyone on this team.\u201d

Knoche, a sophomore, anchored the medley relay Friday in 1:57. He came back to post 2:00.19 in the open 800 after what he called a rough start. He rebounded to pass three individuals in the closing 200 meters to collect bronze.

\u201cThat\u2019s experience,\u201d he said. \u201cI\u2019ll be back next year and be able to finish that one out.\u201d

Venditti exploded out of the blocks in the 200 and was in the lead coming around the curve. He finished in 22.60 seconds.

\u201cI got out quick like I knew I needed to, but the head wind really hit me hard when I came around the turn,\u201d he said.

Bellevue just missed getting a top-three finish in 2A. The Comets finished fourth with 45 points, two in back of third-place finisher South Central Calhoun.

Dike-New Hartford and Williamsburg went 1-2 with 60 and 51 points, respectively.

Bellevue placed second in the 400 relay in a school-record 43.34 seconds with Hunter Clasen, Mason Jackson, Andrew Swartz and Ben Parker. It was third in the sprint medley relay and fourth in the 1,600 relay.

Brady Griebel also placed sixth in the 1,600.

The Comets scored in nine of the 19 events.

\u201cIt is huge for our culture moving forward,\u201d Parker said. \u201cWe\u2019ve always been about winning in other sports, but track and field has never really had a full team. This should energize our school.\u201d

Bellevue came into the week projected to score less than 20 points.

\u201cWe exceeded a lot of expectations and broke school records,\u201d Griebel said. \u201cThat\u2019s going to motivate a lot of guys and younger people coming up to do track.\u201d

Durant junior Jake Willkomm placed fourth in the 2A 200 in 23.21 seconds. Camanche was fifth in the sprint medley relay.

DES MOINES\u00a0\u2014 Carly King has her fingerprints all over Davenport Assumption\u2019s track and field record book.

One of the most decorated careers in school history came to a close Saturday afternoon at Drake Stadium with two more championships and a runner-up finish.

King, headed to run at Duke University this fall, anchored the Knights to a Class 3A title in the sprint medley, registered a championship in the 100 meters and took second in the 200.

In all, King finished with 15 career state medals, six of those titles.

\u201cIt has been a dream,\u201d she said. \u201cBeing a part of this program is something that\u2019s indescribable. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be in a high school program that\u2019s so successful.\u201d

Assumption earned some team hardware, too. After missing out on a trophy last year, the Knights snatched third with 59 points.

Glenwood, paced by four individual titles from Iowa State recruit Janette Schraft, edged Dubuque Wahlert by a half-point for its first team crown, 65-64.5.

\u201cWe\u2019re actually rebuilding now,\u201d King said. \u201cObviously, we\u2019ve had so much success in the past decade or so, but this weekend definitely shows we\u2019re on our way back up.

\u201cWe made some mistakes, but in the end we\u2019re improving.\u201d

King came to Drake Stadium to watch former Assumption standouts like Madison Irmen and Rose Ripslinger growing up. Her name is now part of school lore.

\u201cThose girls definitely inspired me, and the reason I\u2019m here today,\u201d King said. \u201cI hope I can be that for future generations as well.\u201d

Amaya Jackson, Natalie Moore and Lea Nelson joined King for the victory in the sprint medley relay in 1 minute, 46.60 seconds. King ran the 400 anchor in 55.7 seconds.

It was the school\u2019s first state title in that event since 2012 and backed up their Drake Relays championship from last month.

\u201cThe chemistry we have in that relay is big,\u201d Nelson said. \u201cThese are some of my best friends. I grew up with Carly while Nat and Amaya are so close to me. We just had the best of times, and it works on the track.\u201d

The Knights were just 0.14 seconds off the 3A state meet record.

\u201cIt was kind of in the back of our head, but honestly the only thing we really focused on was getting across the line and getting 10 points for our team,\u201d Nelson said.

The Knights earned 28 points in the 100 and 200 with King and Jackson.

Jackson, in her first year competing on Assumption\u2019s varsity squad following a transfer from Davenport Central, was fourth place in both sprints.

It was King\u2019s second 100-meter title, the other coming as a freshman.

\u201cTo get back that title is really special,\u201d she said.

Wahlert\u2019s Libby Wedewer nipped King in the 200, 24.74-24.87.

\u201cI felt really good out of the blocks, especially coming after the 100 start,\u201d King said. \u201cJust a tough race. I\u2019ve got to tip my cap to Libby. She deserved that one.\u201d

King, who will turn her focus to the finish of the soccer season and a chance at a fourth straight championship, leaves quite a legacy for future Assumption track and field athletes.

\u201cPutting your name on the record board at Assumption is definitely an achievement in this program,\u201d she said. \u201cJust to be that person that some might look up to is special.\u201d

Northeast freshman Ellie Rickertsen picked up her second medal of the weekend. She took third in the 100 hurdles in 15.33 seconds after taking the same place in the 400 hurdles.

\u201cTwo third-place finishes as a freshman is very overwhelming, but I\u2019m always going to be hungry for next year and the years to come,\u201d she said. \u201cI always want to get better.\u201d

North Cedar\u2019s Kelly Proesch was sixth in the 100 hurdles in 15.94 seconds.

DES MOINES\u00a0\u2014 Adrea Arthofer took her final lap around Drake Stadium on Saturday afternoon. It also probably signaled the last chapter of her competitive running career.

A fixture on Pleasant Valley\u2019s sprint relays the past four years, Arthofer added three more medals to her collection Saturday afternoon at the Class 4A state meet.

After a third-place finish in Friday\u2019s 800 relay, Arthofer was a member of PV\u2019s runner-up sprint medley, third place 400 and eighth place 1,600 relays.

\u201cI think looking back as a senior now, it is all getting very nostalgic,\u201d she said. \u201cComing out and getting (personal bests) is definitely the way you want to end your career.\u201d

Waukee rolled to its fourth straight championship and sixth in eight years with 81.33 points. Cedar Falls and Southeast Polk snatched the other two team trophies.

PV, which scored in seven of the 19 events, placed seventh with 36 points.

\u201cObviously, the goal was to get that trophy, but you can\u2019t help it if other teams come out and have some of the best races of their careers,\u201d Arthofer said. \u201cThere were a lot of areas where I don\u2019t think people expected or projected us to do as well as we did.\u201d

Third the past three seasons in the sprint medley, Arthofer teamed with Carli Spelhaug, Morgan Ramirez and Harmony Creasy for a runner-up finish in 1:48.04. Creasy anchored in 57.4 seconds.

Then in the 400 relay, it was Spelhaug, Ramirez, Emily Wood and Arthofer. They crossed in fourth place, but Waterloo East was later disqualified to move up a spot.\u00a0

Arthofer had a chance to run the anchor leg against seven-time state champion Kerris Roberts of Waterloo East and Ankeny sprinter Mytika Mayberry.

\u201cIt kind of motivates me and makes me proud of myself that I was even in that position and was trusted to fulfill that anchor spot,\u201d Arthofer said.

Ramirez, a junior, was part of three relays that medaled.

\u201cI felt we ran very well today,\u201d she said. \u201cWe're coming home with a lot of medals, very excited about how we finished. We were a little nervous going into it, but we trusted our coaches and all the workouts (coach) Kenny (Wheeler) had us doing leading up to this.\u201d

For Arthofer, she will attend the University of Denver this fall to major in biology.

\u201cThere is a lot of pressure from Kenny and other people to keep going with track,\u201d she said. \u201cI\u2019ll think about it this summer, but I kind of want to go to Denver and focus on school.\u201d

Bettendorf just missed getting a medal in two events. The Bulldogs were ninth in the sprint medley and shuttle hurdle relays.\u00a0

MOLINE\u00a0\u2014 The Moline boys\u2019 tennis team fell short of a sectional title for the first time in 13 years, but Maroon\u00a0singles runner-up Dylan Wiemers hopes the challenge is a primer for state next weekend.

Normal Community captured the team title of the 2A Moline Sectional on Saturday inside the Quad City Tennis Club, ending the Maroons\u2019 12-year streak of sectional titles. NCHS lost just two matches and posted 28 points.

Moline had 16 points, followed by United Township (eight) and Rock Island (eight).

Wiemers, seeded second in singles, fell 6-1, 6-0 to the Ironmen\u2019s top-seeded Parker Honegger in the singles final. Wiemers, a junior, said the skill and experience of his senior opponent made for a frustrating finish.

\u201cHe just doesn\u2019t miss,\u201d Wiemers said. \u201cHe\u2019s a really good singles player and he knows how to beat tough opponents.\u201d

Wiemers says with every opponent a challenge at state, hopefully Saturday was beneficial for his preparation.

\u201cIt\u2019s good experience and what I have to look forward to. Obviously I didn\u2019t play my best, but I\u2019m hoping I can bounce back at state,\u201d Wiemers said. \u201c This week is a big week and I need to prepare for some tough matches this weekend.\u201d

The Maroons also were the runners-up in doubles as second-seeded Mason Lapaczonek and Bhanu Pujari fell 6-3, 6-3 to Normal Community\u2019s top-seeded pair of James Broach and Adarsh Kurumbail in the final.

United Township\u2019s No. 4 seed Bennett Downey\u00a0\u2014 who became the Panthers\u2019 first boys\u2019 tennis state qualifier since his coach, Diego Cross, qualified in 2000\u00a0\u2014 was defeated 6-3, 6-2 in the third-place match by third-seeded Maxim Paviovic of NCHS.

Rock Island\u2019s fifth-seeded junior doubles pair of Peyton Jones and Kowen Wilhelm\u00a0\u2014 the Rocks\u2019 first state qualifiers in doubles since Gerard Sabb and Geo Slaughter in 2003 \u2014 fell 6-1, 6-1 to a third-seeded NCHS duo in the third-place match.

RI coach Chris Gabany said Friday\u2019s excitement of their win over Moline and qualifying for state may have led into a let-down in Saturday's play, but the two showed what they are capable of this weekend with the 6-0, 6-4 win over Moline\u2019s fourth-seeded duo on Friday to reach state.

\u201cThey really had a good game plan, went in and played well,\u201d Gabany said of his duo. \u201cThey kept a level head, faced adversity, and they pulled it out. I was pretty proud of them.\"

Gabany said the two have played together since grade school and their game\u2019s have meshed well. Wilhelm was the Rocks\u2019 No. 1 singles player at the start of the season before moving to doubles a couple weeks in.

Gabany says the two are supportive as a doubles pair, which is important in having success, like what showed up in Friday\u2019s wins.

\u201cWhen you get divided, you fall apart,\u201d Gabany said, \u201cand they stay unified and they really played well.\u201d

The Maroons have historically kept plenty of Rocks from reaching state, making Friday\u2019s win feel even more noteworthy. It also fed into Moline\u2019s run of consecutive sectional titles ending at 12.

\u201cAny time you take down a higher seed,\u201d Gabany said, \u201cwho wouldn\u2019t be happy with that?\u201d

1A Rochelle Sectional: Two future Western Big 6 teams went one-two in the team standings, with Sterling (23 points) edging Geneseo (18 points). Alleman was third with 17 points.

The semifinals nearly followed the seeds, but Alleman\u2019s Sean Gelski (seeded fifth) topped fourth-seeded Jonathan Rhodes of Sterling Newman 6-1, 6-2 to qualify for state.

Gelski met his Pioneer teammate, third-seeded Jesse Dyer in the third-place match, with Dyer winning 6-4, 6-4. Dyer defeated Geneseo\u2019s No. 6 seed Mason Miller 6-4, 6-1 to qualify for state.

In doubles, Geneseo\u2019s No. 2 pair of Luke Chaney and Ryan Morgan finished fourth but qualified for state by topping a Sterling duo 6-4, 6-1 to reach the semis.

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock said Saturday that he was recently asked why it took him so long to announce his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for the 2020 presidential election.

\u201cTruth is, I was governing,\u201d he told a crowd of about 50 people that came to hear him speak at Baked Beer & Bread in the Village of East Davenport. \u201cI signed my last bill on Monday, announced on Tuesday, and by Thursday I was in Iowa.\u201d

Bullock\u2019s stop in Davenport was the eighth and final city he visited on his first trip to Iowa as a presidential candidate. He is the 24th Democratic candidate to announce a run for president.

Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, who endorsed Bullock this week, was on hand Saturday to introduce him at Saturday\u2019s meet and greet.

Miller said Bullock was not a moderate; rather, he is \u201csort of a mainstream progressive liberal.\u201d

He described the Governor as a man of \u201cvery high character\u201d who connects with people.

\u201cIf he\u2019s president, this is exactly the kind of person we want as president,\u201d Miller said, \u201cto bring our country together in a real way, to work for things that will affect Americans in a positive way, and bring character back to the White House.\u201d

Bullock, 53, who is serving his second term as governor, said Saturday that \u201cfar too many of us have seen the impact of a broken economy\u201d and that the average American is working harder but making less money.

In the 1970s, 90 percent of people of at least 30 years old were doing better than their parents. Today, only half are, he said. And two-thirds of towns across the country have lost business, Bullock said.

\u201cYou look at a broken economy, you look at a broken political system, no wonder folks get frustrated,\u201d he said. \u201cNo wonder folks get cynical and angry about the system. But instead of actually doing something to fix that, Donald Trump has poured gasoline on that fire.\u201d

He added, \u201cThat\u2019s why, first things first, we have to win this election. We have to make sure to bridge some of the divide so Washington is working for us. Not the Koch brothers or the Trumps or others.\u201d

Bullock talked about his efforts in Montana to expand Medicaid and tackle campaign reform to keep \u201cdark money\u201d from impacting elections.

During Saturday\u2019s event, he fielded several questions about diversity, gun violence, health care and education from members of the audience.

Speaking about gun violence, Bullock said the issue should be looked at as a public health issue rather than a political issue.

\u201cForty percent of households in America own a gun,\u201d he said. \u201cBut from a public health approach, gun owners and those that don\u2019t both want to keep their families safe, and they don\u2019t want guns falling in the wrong hands.\u201d

Bullock said a majority of Americans think universal background checks would be a \u201cdang good idea,\u201d as well as \u201cred flag\u201d laws where guns are removed from a household or area where domestic violence occurs.

Bullock said the country has to address the \u201ccorrupting influence of dollars\u201d from organizations like the NRA and find common values to approach it as a public health issue.

DES MOINES\u00a0\u2014 Austin Kalar was emotional. Carter Bell was smiling. Leo Desequeira was hollering in celebration. Darien Porter raised his arms in exhilaration.

Even though Bettendorf didn\u2019t walk out of Drake Stadium on Saturday afternoon with a team trophy, four seniors left with a state championship and an all-time Iowa best.

Kalar, Bell, Desequeira and Porter, all starters on Bettendorf\u2019s state semifinal football squad last fall, teamed for a Class 4A sprint medley relay title in a blistering 1 minute, 30.92 seconds.

\u201cFor us to go out like that, this means the world to me,\u201d Kalar said. \u201cWe woke up this morning, looked at each other and said this is our last race together. I\u2019m just glad we went out like this.\u201d

West Des Moines Valley claimed its third straight title with 89 points, followed by Ames (63) and Waukee (60). Bettendorf was fourth with 45 points.

After the final race, the majority of Bettendorf\u2019s state qualifiers cried and exchanged hugs on the infield. The Bulldogs captured their second straight conference title, a district championship and won three events at the state meet.

\u201cThis is something I\u2019m going to really, really miss,\u201d senior Brendan Scott said. \u201cThe memories I made with these guys the last four years are something I\u2019ll never forget.\u201d

Porter, once again, was the catalyst.

Besides the sprint medley relay, Porter won the 200 meters in 21.76 seconds and took second in the 100 in 10.97. He became Bettendorf\u2019s first state champion in the 200 since Marshall Frazier in 1996.

Porter used a strong kick to fend off 2018 state champion Bernard Bell of Ames.

\u201cI just think it was my training that helped,\u201d Porter said. \u201cI had to remember to relax, trust form and that helped get the edge.\u201d

The 6-foot-4 Porter finished his career with five state championships and three runner-up medals.

\u201cIt is bittersweet knowing I\u2019ve been able to accomplish everything I have and all the memories with the team and coaches, but also knowing I will never wear this jersey or compete for this team again sucks,\u201d Porter said.

The Iowa State recruit is expected to play only football in college. He didn\u2019t completely shut the door on track.

\u201cThe opportunity is always there,\u201d he said. \u201cI haven\u2019t thought about it too much. Track has been a huge part of my life, just as much as football the past seven years. It would be really hard to drop and never be able to compete again.\u201d

Porter admits it is enticing.

\u201cThe times I\u2019ve put up shows I could really hold my own and compete with all the college athletes,\u201d he said. \u201cIt is something I\u2019ll have to think about.\u201d

First, this was a day for him and his teammates to savor.

Kalar, Bell and Desequeira put the Bulldogs in position for the sprint medley title. Porter did the rest.

Thanks to a 46.6-second split on Porter\u2019s 400 anchor, he chased down Urbandale\u2019s Jay Marcotte and sprinted past Waukee\u2019s Sam Yeaway for the win.

It was Porter\u2019s second all-time best of the weekend after winning the open 400 in a record 46.99 seconds on Friday afternoon.

\u201cIt was really my goal to send my seniors, my best friends out with a state title,\u201d Porter said. \u201cWe\u2019re together like nine to 10 months out of the year. I\u2019m going to miss them like hell next year.\u201d

With the exception of Porter, it was the first state championship for the other three.

\u201cI\u2019m eager to win, so to win something this weekend, I\u2019m grateful for it,\u201d Desequeira said.

Bell planned to focus on the long jump and do no running events this spring. When the Bulldogs needed to plug in another sprinter to fill out the relay, he stepped in.

\u201cOur last day together, it is really great to win this,\u201d Bell said. \u201cEspecially when track isn\u2019t my main sport, it is special to be in the (record books) with a name like Darien Porter.\u201d

Davenport West\u2019s Camren Carter was the other Quad-City metro boys\u2019 competitor to medal Saturday.

Carter, a junior, was seeded last among the 24 qualifiers in the 110 hurdles. He placed sixth in 15.22 seconds.

\u201cI\u2019ve worked really hard, had a huge chip on my shoulder because people weren\u2019t bringing me up,\u201d Carter said. \u201cNow, it is a case of I\u2019ve been here and done that. I\u2019m ready to win it next year.\u201d

I leaned forward in my seat and said, \u201cEw!\u201d Not just once, but on multiple occasions.

That\u2019s because \u201cJohn Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum\u201d is one of the most violent, cringe-worthy actioners I\u2019ve ever seen. For 32 years now, I have watched about 200 movies per year. This has to be in the top 25 of the most violent.

It\u2019s also smart, acknowledges that its audience is intelligent, and often delivers its violence with a tongue-in-cheek approach. It\u2019s what we\u2019ve come to expect from this series that stars Keanu Reeves in the titular role.

Speaking of titles, this is a play on words. \u201cParabellum\u201d is Latin for \"Prepare for war.\" It\u2019s often used with dialogue you\u2019ll hear in this script: \u201cSi vis pacem, para bellum,\u201d which means \u201cIf you want peace, prepare for war.\"

A \u201cParabellum\u201d also is a kind of gun or cartridge.

The movie starts moments after the second one, just minutes before a guild of international assassins places a bounty of $14 million on Wick\u2019s head. Suddenly, it seems that everyone in New York is hunting down Wick, who already is wounded.

A desperate Wick begs a crime boss (an icy Anjelica Huston \u2013 \u201cArt is pain. Life is suffering,\u201d she declares) for a favor to get him out of the United States. He ends up in Casablanca, but not for long.

Throughout his adventures, he survives ghastly injuries, one of which he causes himself. And he dispatches his enemies with knives, guns, fists and anything else that\u2019s on hand.

He finds sorta/kinda support from other characters, including those played by Halle Barry, Ian McShane and Laurence Fishburne.

There are nods to so many other films I know I missed most of them. Most noticeable, perhaps, is that Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Tiger Hu Chen and Randall Duk Kim are reunited here from \u201cThe Matrix.\u201d

Additionally, in one sequence, Wick considers a number of revolvers in his quest for the best weapon. This is a nod to a scene with Eli Wallach who assembles a gun from other weapons in \u201cThe Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.\u201d

Once again, the director is Chad Stahelski, a brilliant helmsman who cleverly covers the faces of most of Wick\u2019s foes, choreographs fight scenes with the grace of dance numbers and uses backdrops from glass cases to psychedelic environments that keep the eyes dazzled.

This is a terrific film for action aficionados. It\u2019s not a beginner\u2019s movie by any means. If you aren\u2019t familiar with the John Wick mythos, you wouldn\u2019t want to start here.

This reminds me of action films by John Woo, Ringo Lam and Gareth Evans, particularly Evans\u2019 \"The Raid\" movies.

A simple \u201cYeah\u201d at the finale will have Wick fans grinning \u2026 and waiting for more.

Some people have mowed their lawns five times or more this season.

Tara Witherow hasn't mowed hers once. And she doesn't plan to.

Witherow is anti-lawn. She looks up and down her Davenport street at the nicely shorn rectangles of bright green in front of the homes and she sees \"wasted space.\"

That is because mowed turfgrass provides no habitat or food for pollinators, and this is important to Witherow because she is deeply concerned that, as natural habitats and biodiversity shrink worldwide, the future of life on Earth is at risk.

So instead of mowing her lawn, she is bit by bit replacing the grass with other kinds of plants. At first she planted just about anything, without regard to whether it was native or not.

Then she learned that in order to quality for the city of Davenport's Native Roots program in which a homeowner can be exempted from the mowing ordinance, her yard had to contain at least 80 percent specifically native plants.

So she moved the hostas and daylilies to her backyard and concentrated on buying \u2014 or acquiring free from friends \u2014 native plants such as asters, goldenrod and spiderwort.

Native plants are preferred because they provide food for native insects and birds. They generally are deep-rooted, helping to reduce reduce storm water runoff by infiltrating water into the soil and reducing pollution. They provide habitat and their long-roots sequester more carbon than short-rooted varieties.

\"Now is the time to bring back biodiversity, to feed pollinators, to catch carbon and put it back into the soil,\" Witherow said, standing on her sidewalk, looking up and down the street. \"They (scientists) say we have only a few years left.\"

By this she means the urgency of reducing greenhouse gases to keep the rise of the Earth's temperature below 1.5 degrees C, thereby avoiding the worst effects of runaway climate change.

By the amount of space they cover, lawns are this country's biggest single crop \"and they don't do anything for us,\" Witherow said.

\"My dream is to get lawns switched over to where (they are) helping the environment, not hurting the environment. Imagine the impact we could have. That would be huge. I'd like to see people at least add flowers.\"

A United Nationals science report issued earlier this month says 1 million species of plants and animals are at risk of going extinct. Planting native species, even in window boxes or patio containers, encourage the native insects upon which birds depend, particularly for feeding their young, according to the National Audubon Society.

As Witherow gets started talking, the words just pour out. No wonder she feels so comfortable speaking to groups, such as churches, libraries or service groups. And her concern is palpable.

\"We're in a climate crisis, and now is the time. Don't put it off.

\"There's no reason we can't. It's easier than you think. If I can do it anyone can do it. I'm not a scientist, I'm not a botanist. I'm just a regular person. It's something you can do. It's tangible.\"

Another reason Witherow is critical of manicured lawns is that they require inputs to maintain the \"carpet\" look \u2014 extra water in dry times, which she sees as a waste of resources, plus fertilizer and weed and bug killers that can wash away and affect water quality. Not to mention the greenhouse gas emissions produced by most lawn mowers.

Between agriculture and cities, \"we've pretty much eliminated all the wilderness,\" she said. \"The one empty spot we could use to re-wild is the front lawn.\"

She said she hasn't received any complaints from neighbors, just questions about what she is doing and why.

She is more than happy to explain.

Recycling, native plantings help the planet

In reaction to the reality of shootings, in places of worship, businesses and schools, a Geneseo, Ill., pastor is inviting security personnel, from area churches and businesses to a security training session at his church.

Rev. David Murphy, a pastor at First Baptist, is spearheading the training effort. Detective Mike Chavez, of the Geneseo Police Department, will lead the session.

\u00a0\u201cIt seems that over the last decade or two, there has been an increase in violence with mass shootings. The motives vary for such crimes\u00a0\u2014\u00a0race, religion, retaliation or just rage,\u201d Murphy said.

Officer Chavez will outline the signs to look for in a possible shooter. \u201dWe also will discuss procedures for church leaders to go over with their parishioners if a shooter makes entry into the facility.\u201d

The session will include information on how to respond to the shooter and notify law enforcement during the crisis.

\u201cIn conclusion, we will discuss how law enforcement will respond and the effects the event will have on the rest of the community,\u201d Chavez said.

The training will be at 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 25, at First Baptist Church, 15300 Ford Road, in Geneseo. For more information, call 309-944-3735.

Murphy said he is hoping that the upcoming training will provide an opportunity to think through questions dealing with security, \u201cand at the same time remain welcoming and open to worshipers.\u201d

Having had an inner-city ministry in Long Beach, Calif., for 25 years prior to his call to the Geneseo church, violence is not new to Murphy.

\u201cWe had people who came into our church who were intoxicated or high on drugs, homeless, thieves, vandals, child custody cases, and those who suffered from PTSD or other emotional/mental disorders,\u201d he said.

\u201cAlthough Geneseo is a different place than inner-city Long Beach, we would be foolish to think that someone wanting to do harm to people could never come to a place like this,\u201d Murphy said. \u201cBecause we live in a different world than what we grew up in, it is wise for us to take precautions in order to deter crime and to protect people.\u201d

\u201cOur police department is actively involved in our community and has agreed to come to First Baptist to help train our security personnel,\u201d he said. \u201cWe extend our invitation to any and all churches or businesses who would like to have security training in facing violent people wanting to do harm to others.\u201d

Troy Harrington and Brian Thomas have teamed up for more than 30 years to write songs, four of which were included in the 2010 movie \u201cStanding Ovation.\u201d

But their latest song and video focuses on a subject that Harrington has seen too much of while he worked security for 12 years at Davenport\u2019s West High School and for six years at the district\u2019s Keystone Academy: bullying.

It was Harrington, 49, of Davenport, who called up Thomas, 46, a graphic designer in Minneapolis, and told him his idea, and as usual, the two clicked and got to work.

\u201cWith so much of the bullying going on in our society, in our schools, along with the shootings, I felt it was necessary that we try to address it in a positive way and see if we can reach some kids and try to prevent some of it,\u201d Harrington said.

\u201cThere\u2019s bullying even on social media,\u201d he added. He no longer works in the school district because of an injury caused by a student, but Harrington said his 18 years working security taught him that there's something new every day for kids.

\u201cIt starts with the parents, or the lack of parents, but it\u2019s also a combination of everything in society,\u201d Harrington said. \u201cWith the whole social media thing, what\u2019s being said on Facebook and who\u2019s saying it and how it\u2019s being said and how it\u2019s being portrayed, I had to deal with a lot of those issues.\u201d

Harrington said that when he was in junior high and high school, \u201cwe had sports as our outlet.\u201d

\u201cThere were so many kids out there the schools had to have two or three different teams,\" he said.

\u201cNow they can barely get enough kids to be on a team to make a team, sometimes, at the smaller schools,\u201d he said. \u201cThe kids these days seem too busy with Facebook and Twitter and Instagram and other social media outlets.\u201d

Harrington said his education into what words can mean to a child began back in elementary school. Back then, it was common for young boys to throw insults back and forth at one another in what was then called \u201ccapping,\u201d he said. It\u2019s a game of words between two people, he explained.

\u201cI was doing that with one kid and we were going back and forth, and I said something and he started crying,\u201d Harrington said. \u201cI didn\u2019t know what was going on, and making someone cry wasn\u2019t the point. We were just supposed to be having fun. And then the next day he came to school with a knife to come after me. That taught me at that moment this is not a good thing. I\u2019ve never talked to anyone to hurt them.

\u201cWhen I started working at West High School in 2002, we were dealing with the \u2018wannabe\u2019 gang stuff,\u201d he said. \u201cNow, it\u2019s the internet stuff, the social bullying, people making threats through the computer. The gangs are not as prominent, but today it\u2019s what was said on Facebook, and one group of kids saying to another group, \u2018We\u2019re going to meet you here because of what you said on Facebook.\u2019

\u201cBefore the internet and Tweeting and posting on Facebook, people seemed to be a lot more careful and cautious about what they said and did,\u201d Harrington said. \u201cYou had to be face-to-face with someone. Now people say anything and everything, whatever comes to mind because now there are no filters. You can be anybody you want to be on the internet, and that can be dangerous.\u201d

Harrington\u2019s outlet growing up was poetry, and that outlet has served him well today. He is often the wordsmith while Thomas, who plays keyboards, is the music portion of the duo.

They met in junior high school and have been best friends and co-writers ever since.

\u201cWhen Troy told me about the anti-bully song I thought it was a great idea,\u201d Thomas said. \u201cFrom a mainstream standpoint, you don\u2019t hear a lot of songs that focus on bullying.

\u201cWhen you come up with an idea, you want to get it together and get it out fast and we were thinking there had to be other bullying songs out there,\u201d Thomas said. \u201cWe always do searches on YouTube and other search engines and we didn\u2019t find a much.\u201d

Harrington said the demographic they are trying to reach is the elementary school kids, such as Harrington\u2019s 7-year-old son, but also have the song current enough to reach older kids.

\u201cBack when we were younger, we didn\u2019t have social media,\u201d Thomas said. \u201cWe were taught values and how to behave in public and how to behave toward other people. But social media today is a whole other issue when it comes to teaching your kids to have the same values and apply them to social media. That\u2019s not happening.

\u201cIt\u2019s hard to control,\u201d Thomas said. \u201cMy wife and I have had to have discussions with our daughters. We tell them that a lot of the time you may not know or realize you\u2019re bullying somebody, or you may not realize you\u2019re involved in the internet chain that\u2019s bullying somebody. You have to be on it and talk to them.

\u201cOnce you say something on social media, it\u2019s out there,\u201d Thomas said. \u201cYou can\u2019t take it back. There are too many people out there who want to stir the pot and attend to their own agenda.\u201d

Eventually, they want to expand their video to include local kids, but for now, the two men said, it\u2019s the message that\u2019s important.

Boys soccer

Bettendorf 6, Davenport West 0: Reed Shea tallied a hat trick and Bettendorf finished MAC play with a shutout win over West.

The game was suspended Thursday with 11 minutes left in the first half and Bettendorf leading 2-0.

George Elias and Ian Silva each had two assists on the night.

The win leaves Bettendorf alone in second in the MAC, 8-1 in conference. West finished in a tie for sixth in the conference at 4-5.

Girls soccer

Linn-Mar 1, Assumption 0: The Class 3A third-ranked Lions scored the lone goal in the 28th minute Friday night to hand the Class 1A top-ranked Knights their first loss of the season.

The Knights were without Carly King, who leads the team with 26 goals, as well as senior Livy Lansing and freshman Morgan Jennings, all of whom were at state track.

Geneseo 8, Morris 0: Powered by a hat trick from Taylor DeSplinter, the Leafs cruised to a regional championship and advance to play Peoria Notre Dame on Tuesday night in the first game of sectionals.

DeSplinter also registered an assist as Geneseo jumped out to a 3-0 halftime lead and scored its final five goals in the second half. The Leafs out shot Morris 13-1.

Boys track

Sottos reaches state in two events: Junior Seth Sottos will be carrying the torch for the Alleman Pioneers at the Class 2A State track & field meet next week.

Sottos was the lone Pioneer to advance out of the 2A Macomb Sectional on Thursday night, qualifying for state in two events.

Sottos topped the 200 in 22.06 seconds, nearly a half-second ahead of runner-up Job Knapp of Eureka. In the 100, it was much, much closer. Sottos' time in the shortest sprint was 10.96 seconds, and his win over Peoria Manual's Mechai White was by just four hundredths of a second.

Lee sweeps throws as Chargers claim sectional title: Competing on its home track at Charger Field for the final time this spring, the Orion boys' track and field squad had its sights set as high as possible.

Hoping to capture a Class 1A sectional team championship on a gray and windswept Friday evening, the Chargers got off to a strong start as senior Logan Lee swept both the shot put and discus title and classmate Trent Scharpman scored a silver medal in the pole vault.

With Lee and another Orion senior, Ryan Wegerer, each pocketing two sectional gold medals, the Chargers gave their hometown fans a fitting sendoff as they racked up 96 points to outdistance runner-up Spring Valley Hall (78 points) for the team crown.

\u201cThis week, the No. 1 goal was qualifying for state; the No. 2 goal was to get as many points as I can for the team,\u201d said Lee, who threw 52 feet, 2 inches to strike gold in the shot put, then followed up with a heave of 157-6 to take the discus title.

\u201cRight now, this is a team sport. We've done well with our past track teams, but we've had a lot more success this year because of our numbers. We've had a lot of people stepping up and putting the work in at practice, and it's shown.\u201d

Rockridge 10, Mercer County 0: Rockridge softball coach John Nelson knows his team very well. So, when he announced early this season that senior Amelia \"YaYa\" Thomas was not going to be at the top of the team's pitching rotation, it really was no big surprise.

Thomas showed why that decision was made on Thursday, firing a one-hit shutout in a 10-0 win over Mercer County in the championship game of the Class 2A Knoxville Regional.

The Rockets (29-6) advance to the Brimfield Sectional to play Quincy Notre Dame on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.

Central DeWitt headed to state: Led by a 78 from Tucker Kinney, the Sabers shot a 324 at a 3A district meet at Pin Oak Links to qualify for the state tournament Friday.

Central DeWitt edged Clear Lake by two strokes to win the district title.\u00a0

Dylan McAleer added a 79 for the Sabers and Jacob Brainerd an 82.

Townsend claims state berth: Jared Townsend qualified as an individual by shooting a 75 at Friday's district finals, the second-lowest score of any individual qualifier in Class 2A.

\"I was getting off the tee box really well, making some putts and getting up and down,\" Townsend said. \"I had a pretty good day.\"

The Beavers shot a 353 to place fifth at the district meet. Brock Hartley (82) Cory Anderson (83) and Brayton Wade (86) all broke 90 for Wilton. West Branch won the meet with a 304, Williamsburg was second with a 310 and Durant seventh with a 353.

Lucas Callison and Logan Callison both shot an 82 to lead Durant.

BLOOMINGTON \u2014 Alleman sophomore forward Kendall Wendt makes it sound kind of easy.

\"When they're passing it across, we run onto it and we just have to touch it into the net,\" she said. \"You just look for the corner.\"

Although in the heat of a soccer battle scoring goals is actually easier said than done, Wendt was able to \"touch it into the net\" four times to lead Alleman to a 7-2 win over Bloomington Central Catholic in the championship game of the Class 1A BCC Sectional on Friday at Hundman Field.

The victory gave the Pioneers an 11-6-2 record and a spot in Tuesday's Mendota Super-Sectional where they will face the winner of today's Manteno Sectional title game between Kankakee McNamara and Herscher.

Freshman Kaylie Eckhoff scored both Central goals as the Saints saw their season end at 16-9-1.

\"I'm very proud of our kids and what they accomplished from where we started (in the season) and where we are tonight,\" said BCC coach Reza Ghasemi. \"We basically gave up too many goals early against a good team and couldn't recover.\"

Executing its game plan to near perfection, Alleman scored three goals in the first 22 minutes of the match and had two others negated by offside penalties.

\"We tried to possess the ball and control the flow of the game,\" said Alleman coach Randy Bollman. \"We worked on exactly what you were seeing here for the past two or three weeks and it's finally coming together. You couldn't ask for a better time for it to start working.\"

It started working early when Wendt found the back of the net 4:19 into the game. She added her second goal with 52-seconds remaining in the first half with a blast from about 25 yards out. Sandwiched in between were Alleman goals by Ella DeSmet and Isabelle Pinc that gave the Pioneers a 4-0 halftime lead.

\"I think we did a really good job with our passes,\" Wendt said. \"We really started clicking and communicating and I think we did a good job.\"

\"We had a couple of defensive breakdowns that they took advantage of,\" Ghasemi said. \"We adjusted a little bit in the second half.\"

Central was first on the scoreboard in the second half when Eckhoff lifted a shot past Alleman goalkeepr Billi Fleck. The goal induced a bit of a momentum shift, until Wendt scored her third of the game with 29:01 remaining in the contest.

Eckhoff would bring the Saints to within 5-2 when she rocketed a free kick from the left perimeter that found the back of the net untouched.

Alleman answered when freshman Skylar Thorpe executed a takeaway deep in Saints territory and left-footed it home. Wendt closed out the scoring with a rebound goald with 8:37 remaining.

Alleman outshot Central 19-15.

\"We had our opportunities,\" Ghasemi said. \"We didn't finish and it gave them the edge.\"

One down, three big obstacles to go.

Desperately needing a victory to stay in the Indoor Football League playoff race, the Quad-City Steamwheelers delivered a 48-29 decision Friday night over the Cedar Rapids River Kings.

With Wheelers greats Jack Walker Jr. and Damon Williams in the Kids' Night crowd at the TaxSlayer Center, Q-C snapped a three-game losing streak and possibly lifted the hex hounding the local club since a 22-point win at Cedar Rapids on March 15.

The Wheelers (4-7) had dropped six of seven between meeting their nearest IFL rival, contending for victories into the final minute each time, including four defeats by a touchdown or less.

Now with three games left, the Wheelers edged back within 1.5 games of the last two playoff spots, currently shared by Tucson (5-5) and Nebraska (5-5).

Q-C can gain more ground tonight when Nebraska visits reigning nine-time finalist Sioux Falls (8-2), and Tucson is at Bismarck (2-7).

Sandwiched around the June 7 home finale with Bismarck, the Wheelers face road trips to both Nebraska (next Friday) and Tucson (June 15 regular-season finale) in their final three games.

Besides welcoming Q-C next weekend, Nebraska's finishing kick includes trips to basement-dweller San Diego (1-9) and defending champ Iowa (9-1). Tucson also faces unbeaten top-seed Arizona (9-0) twice before hosting the Wheelers.

Despite building a lead as large as 21 points in the first half, the Wheelers again managed to make things exciting.

Cedar Rapids (1-10) battled back from a 27-9 halftime deficit to get within four points midway through the third quarter, recovering a Q-C fumble to score the first two touchdowns after intermission.

The Wheelers followed by suffering a turnover on downs in Cedar Rapids territory, but the defense covered up that hiccup with the first interception of the season by IFL tackles leader Danzel McDaniel.

Five plays later, after a pair of clutch catches by IFL scoring leader Quinton Pedroza, Zavier Steward walked in from 6 yards out to put Q-C ahead 34-23.

Cedar Rapids then posted its fourth empty possession of the game, thanks to the second clutch pass breakup of the night by Malik Duncan, and the Wheelers scored again on the second TD catch of the night by Carlos Wiggins.

Davenport Central grad Keyvan Rudd provided the premature exclamation point, scoring a pair of touchdowns in the first half, one each rushing and receiving.

Rudd celebrated the last score with a backflip off the wall after flying into the stands to snare the short TD pass from quarterback E.J. Hilliard.

The IFL's passing leader, Hilliard finished 15-for-23 passing for 199 yards and three TDs. He also accounted for one of three rushing TDs by Q-C.

Augustana grad Jacob Stytz added two field goals in the first half to help stake Q-C's 18-point halftime pad.

Q-C's other defensive stops came in the first half against the IFL's second-worst offensive statistically.

Pass breakups by McDaniel and Duncan, and a shared sack by La'Kel Bass and Howard Stephens highlighted the effort. The only River Kings TD came on a kickoff return by Nathaniel Chavious.

DES MOINES\u00a0\u2014 Carli Spelhaug had a Drake Relays to forget in the long jump. Three jumps, three scratches.\u00a0

\u201cI wanted to redeem myself after Drake,\u201d she said.

The Pleasant Valley senior finished fourth Friday evening in the Class 4A state competition at Drake Stadium with a leap of 17 feet, 3 \u00bd inches.

Spelhaug, an Iowa State softball recruit, made the finals with three jumps over 16-7 \u00bd. Then on her final jump of the competition, she had her best jump.

\u201cBeing a multi-sport athlete really helped,\u201d Spelhaug said. \u201cYou have to have a quick mindset that it happened, learn from it and move on. That helped me.

\u201cWe worked really hard on getting my steps really consistent. Props to (coach) Kenny (Wheeler) for helping me with that.\u201d

It was one of two medals for Spelhaug in about a 2-hour window.

She led off the Spartans\u2019 third place 800 relay which included Adrea Arthofer, Morgan Ramirez and Harmony Creasy.

PV, which won the 2018 state championship in that event, ran a season-best time of 1:42.34. It was beaten out by Waukee (1:41.00) and Ames (1:42.30).

\u201cSimilar to districts, we wanted to come out hard,\u201d Arthofer said. \u201cIf you do that and don\u2019t win, you did what you could. We put it all out on the track and there was nothing else we really could ask for.\u201d

Davenport Central\u2019s Brooklyn Johnson medaled with a fifth-place showing in the long jump. The freshman tallied a jump of 17-0 \u00bc.

Johnson came in seeded 13th and was in the first of two flights.

\u201cThis means a lot because I\u2019ve worked on this for a long time,\u201d she said. \u201cThe coaches definitely have helped get me to this point. We really focused on accelerating, getting to the board faster and having more pop off the board.\u201d

With two of the girls in front of her graduating, including three-time champion Darby Thomas of Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln, Johnson has her eyes on a championship next season.

\u201cIt definitely makes me want to push harder to get that first place,\u201d Johnson said.

Bettendorf\u2019s Erin McQuillen (long jump) and Pleasant Valley\u2019s Ilah Perez-Johnson (shot put) each collected seventh-place medals.

The Spartans qualified for the finals in Saturday\u2019s 400 and 1,600 relays.

Even with George-Little Rock\u2019s Payton Mauldin and Hudson\u2019s Collin Luck right on Knoche\u2019s heels, the sophomore didn\u2019t flinch.

Knoche anchored the 800 in 1 minute, 57 seconds to carry Cal-Wheat to its first Class 1A state championship in a running event in 20 years in a school-record time of 3:34.47.

\u201cTrust yourself and stay calm is what I kept telling myself,\u201d Knoche said. \u201cI really had to breathe on that backstretch and trust myself I had what it took to bring it home.\u201d

Venditti, Tyler Rowold and Hunter Rickels joined Knoche on the relay. It was just the school\u2019s second state title in a relay, joining the 3,200 squad of 1999.

\u201cIt means everything,\u201d Rickels said.

It was particularly important for a team chasing the school\u2019s first state trophy.

The Warriors were disqualified in the 800 relay earlier Friday.

\u201cThat\u2019s what we needed to get us back into that team race,\u201d Venditti said. \u201cWe knew that (800 relay) didn\u2019t put us out of the team race. We had to put it behind us and get stuff done.\u201d

Rickels ran a 51.3 split on his 400 leg in the medley relay.

\u201cThe entire time I was like, \u2018You\u2019re doing this for your teammates,\u2019\u201d he said. \u201cI do my best when I\u2019m doing it for my team. It was a relief I ended on a high note.\u201d

George-Little Rock leads the 1A standings with 24 points, followed by Cal-Wheat (23), Lynnville-Sully (22) and Earlham (16).

\u201cIt puts us in a really good position,\u201d Rickels said.

Positioned in Lane 8 and in the second of three sections, Bellevue\u2019s 800 relay of Hunter Clasen, Mason Jackson, Andrew Swartz and Ben Parker finished second in a season-best time of 1:30.70. Williamsburg, out of the final section, prevailed in 1:29.71.

A one-hour weather delay didn\u2019t impact Bellevue.

\u201cWe knew it was going to be tough, but we stayed inside as long as we could, came out here and just hoped we didn\u2019t have anything happen to us like slipping or a dropped handoff,\u201d Parker said. \u201cThe puddles can be pretty dangerous, but we stuck to it and knew we were going to run a good race.\u201d

It was Bellevue\u2019s best time by nearly two seconds this season.

\u201cIn these conditions, that\u2019s great,\u201d Swartz said.

Bellevue is in the mix for the team title, too.

Dike-New Hartford leads 2A after 10 of 19 events with 24 points. Bellevue is second at 23, followed by Northeast 20, New Hampton 20 and Williamsburg 19.

The Comets weren\u2019t even projected to reach 20 points for the week but have performed above their seed multiple times. Brady Griebel had a top-five finish in Thursday\u2019s 3,200, and the 3,200 relay took bronze.

Griebel is the top seed in Saturday\u2019s 1,600 while the 400 and 1,600 relays qualified for the final.

\u201cComing out here, coach told us to think more of it as we\u2019re out here to perform and not a vacation,\u201d Clasen said. \u201cThis is our main focus, and that really helps. When you have this kind of success, it makes it a lot more fun.\u201d

Northeast\u2019s Braeden Hoyer was runner-up in the 2A long jump with a leap of 6-6. Sibley-Ocheyedan\u2019s Grant Brouwer cleared 6-9 to follow up his Drake Relays title with a state championship.

\u201cI wish I could have gotten first and wish I could have jumped better, but I\u2019m happy with second place,\u201d Hoyer said. \u201cWhen it is wet like this and you plant in the high jump, it kind of scares you that you\u2019re going to slip. It gives you a little hesitation, not as confident.\u201d

Hoyer was second at the Drake Relays last month as well. It\u2019ll likely be his final high jump competition as he\u2019ll attend to Wartburg College to play football in the fall.

\u201cI\u2019ve been working at it since my freshman year, so it is great to go out on a high note my senior year,\u201d Hoyer said.

Wapello\u2019s T.J. Dirth was second place in the discus with a heave of 152-10, just one inch behind champion and Iowa football recruit Noah Fenske of New Hampton.

Dirth eclipsed 148 feet on four of his six attempts.

\u201cI\u2019m pretty happy with the way things went,\u201d Dirth said. \u201cThat\u2019s a good way to end my senior season.\u201d

River Valley Conference members Northeast, Bellevue and Camanche went fourth, fifth and eighth, respectively, in the 2A 1,600 medley relay.

Northeast\u2019s Grant Rickertsen placed fourth out of the second heat in the 400 hurdles in 56.27 seconds. Tipton\u2019s Andrew Stewart was fourth in the high jump with a leap of 6-1.

Camanche\u2019s Blake Hardison was seventh and Louisa-Muscatine\u2019s Chase Kruse eighth in the 400 hurdles.

DES MOINES\u00a0\u2014\u00a0Jamie Kofron has a flair for the dramatic.

She won back-to-back shot put titles at the Drake Relays on her final throw.

And when the Tipton senior stepped into the discus ring for the final time of her high school career Friday morning in a steady rain, Kofron was in second place.

The Iowa recruit came up clutch again.\u00a0

Kofron unleashed a toss of 140 feet, 5 inches to pass South Hardin\u2019s Brylie Zeisneiss and repeat as the Class 2A state champion.

\u201cIt kind of feels fitting to go out my senior year on my last throw in a Tipton jersey and do it,\u201d Kofron said. \u201cIt was definitely a cool thing.\u201d

It was a storybook ending to an illustrious career.

Kofron finished with four Drake Relays titles, two state championships and three runner-up finishes in the discus and shot put.

\u201cI haven\u2019t grown that much in distance the past four years in the discus or shot put,\u201d she said. \u201cMine is more about fight. I show up when I need to. I show up at Drake and state and get things done when I need to.\u201d

Kofron, second to Zeisneiss in Thursday\u2019s shot put, trailed the Arizona recruit by 13 inches going into her final throw.

In difficult conditions, Kofron was more concerned about having a dry discus than the magnitude of the moment.

\u201cWe had towels on top of towels trying to keep it dry,\u201d she said. \u201cWhen it was my turn, I took the towel off, threw it, walked in the ring and threw it as fast as I could to see if I could do it.

\u201cI knew I had it in me if I got those conditions right.\u201d

The 140-5 was the identical distance Kofron threw to claim last year\u2019s state competition.

\u201cI had a lot of expectations coming into this meet, and I wasn\u2019t able to fulfill it (Thursday),\u201d she said. \u201cComing into today, it was less about me and more about wanting to bring one more title back to Tipton and bring out the firetrucks one more time (for a celebration).\u201d

Kofron\u2019s throwing career continues down the road in Iowa City next season.

\u201cI didn\u2019t feel like I belonged yet with the Iowa throws crew,\u201d she said. \u201cBut with one more state championship, it makes me a little more comfortable going in. Maybe I do deserve to be there.\u201d

Northeast\u2019s Ellie Rickertsen earned her first state medal with a third-place finish in the 2A 400 hurdles. Rickertsen used a strong kick in the final half of the race to clock in at 1 minute, 6.54 seconds.

\u201cIt was definitely a different experience racing in those conditions,\u201d she said. \u201cIt was something I\u2019m not used to, but I really enjoyed it.

\u201cFor a freshman, I\u2019m very pleased. It gives me a place to work off of in the upcoming years.\u201d

Influenced by an older cousin who did the hurdles and the school records set by former standout Aleenah Marcucci, Rickertsen has plenty of motivation moving forward.

Rickertsen, who qualified for the finals of Saturday\u2019s 100 hurdles, said she and Marcucci plan to train together this summer.

\u201cI just need to keep pushing myself to always become better, get better placings and times,\u201d she said. \u201c(Aleenah) has most of those records. I just need to keep pushing to get to that point.\u201d

Davenport Assumption collected two medals Friday.

The 800 relay of Alaina McConnell, Amaya Jackson, Lea Nelson and Natalie Moore placed fourth in 1:45.86. Dubuque Wahlert rolled to the title in 1:41.42, its fifth in six years in that event.

McConnell also was part of Assumption\u2019s sixth place distance medley. She was joined by Amil Combs, Olivia Lansing and anchor Laney Fitzpatrick. The quartet crossed in 4:16.42.

Wahlert leads the 3A race after the second day with 26.5 points, followed by Glenwood (26) and Assumption (22).

The Knights failed to make the finals in the 1,600 relay and false-started in the 400 relay preliminaries, but they\u2019ll have opportunities for substantial points in the sprint medley relay along with Carly King and Amaya Jackson in the 100 and 200 Saturday.

Bellevue\u2019s Shayla Oster was fifth in the discus with a heave of 121-7.
