Storm warning

The warning states: \"Another winter storm will bring accumulating snow and a wintry mix to portions of Iowa and Illinois. The heaviest precipitation will fall this afternoon through tonight. Due to temperatures near or slightly above freezing, there will be a very tight gradient in snowfall accumulations on the southern edge of the moderate to heavy snow band.

\"For areas that rise above freezing, pavement temperatures will be slow to respond because of the very cold conditions the past several days. This increases the risk for light icing amounts from freezing rain. Temperatures will quickly fall through the 20s and into the 10s tonight, which will keep roads hazardous into Wednesday morning. Areas that change to all rain today will change to snow tonight as temperatures fall through the 20s. This could lead to a flash freeze situation on untreated surfaces.\"

\u2022\u00a0WHEN: Until 9 a.m. Wednesday.

\u2022\u00a0ADDITIONAL DETAILS: Travel could be very difficult. The hazardous conditions will impact the commute this evening and Wednesday morning.

4. Urban hunts keep deer in check

\"012319-qct-qca-deerhunt-001\"

A deer peers from behind a tree in a ravine behind a residential neighborhood near the Saukie Golf Course in Rock Island.

The number of deer killed in urban Quad-City hunts this season is in line with the past several years, and people in charge of the activity say that, in general, they accomplish the goal of keeping the population at a level good for deer and people.

The cities of Davenport, Bettendorf/Riverdale, Rock Island and Moline all allow a bow hunting season, as does the Scott County Conservation Department in Scott County Park and the Rock Island County Forest Preserve District in Loud Thunder.

According to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, Iowa's deer herd \u2014 if left unchecked \u2014 could grow at a rate of 20 to 40 percent each year. At that\u00a0 rate, deer numbers would double in as few as three years.

Urban hunting was highly controversial when it first came to the Quad-City area in 1996 in Scott County. At that time, the deer population in the park had exploded, with an estimated 400 animals in an area capable of supporting only about 150, according to accounts from the time. Advocates said the herd had to be thinned for the animals' own well-being, as food was scarce. Read more.

5. Reports: Arconic is close to a sale

\"Arconic

Arconic is close to a sale to Apollo Global Management, according to several news outlets. The company operates its Davenport Works plant in Riverdale.

Several national news outlets are reporting that a sale of Arconic Inc. is imminent, but officials from the aluminum-products maker have not confirmed the claims.

The Wall Street Journal, Reuters and Bloomberg have published stories that say Arconic is closing in on a $10 billion deal with Apollo Global Management to acquire the New York-based company with a manufacturing plant in Riverdale.

Arconic, which specializes in the manufacture of aluminum parts for aerospace and auto makers, announced its largest contract in July \u2014 to supply aluminum sheet and plate products for Boeing. Read more.

6. Clinton firefighter Adam Cain now is walking

\"Clinton

For the first time since he was critically injured in a grain-silo explosion at ADM in Clinton on Jan. 5, firefighter Adam Cain had visitors Monday from the Clinton Fire Department.

After nearly two weeks in intensive care and critical condition in Iowa City, the injured Clinton firefighter is making big strides. Adam Cain, 23, now is listed as stable and has been relocated to a different level of care. Read more.

Today's photo gallery: The evolution of the phone

Where would we be without our communication \u2014 smart phone, cell phone, landline telephone\u00a0\u2014 device? Just the thought sends a shiver down many people's spine.

Landline telephones have been around for more than a century and have evolved from the crank model to cordless ones with rechargeable bases.

And wireless mobile units have evolved from the \"brick\" models of the 1980s and the bag models of the 1990s to the smartphones (sophisticated minicomputers that not only allows one to communicate with others by phone, but also by text, emails and allows one to surf the internet, as well as thousands of other things as long as you have the proper app.)

A tip of the hat to Alexander Graham Bell who on March 10, 1876 made the first successful telephone transmission\u00a0 when he spoke into his device and said, \"Mr. Watson, come here, I want to see you.\" Watson heard each word distinctly and the rest, as they say, is history.

Here's a photographic look at the evolution of the telephone.

The number of deer killed in urban Quad-City hunts this season is in line with the past several years, and people in charge of the activity say that, in general, they accomplish the goal of keeping the population at a level good for deer and people.

The cities of Davenport, Bettendorf/Riverdale, Rock Island and Moline all allow a bow hunting season, as does the Scott County Conservation Department in Scott County Park and the Rock Island County Forest Preserve District in Loud Thunder.

In the season that ended this month, 88 deer were harvested in Davenport, 41 in Bettendorf/Riverdale, 41 in Scott County, 35 in Rock Island, 15 in Moline and 42 in Loud Thunder.

\"We're at a good maintenance level,\" Bettendorf Chief Keith Kimball said of the harvest numbers. \"The first year (2003), it was 170 some. There's definitely a need. If we skip a year or two, we lose a lot of ground.\"

According to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, Iowa's deer herd \u2014 if left unchecked \u2014 could grow at a rate of 20 to 40 percent each year. At that rate, deer numbers would double in as few as three years.

Urban hunting was highly controversial when it first came to the Quad-City area in 1996 in Scott County. At that time, the deer population in the park had exploded, with an estimated 400 animals in an area capable of supporting only about 150, according to accounts from the time. Advocates said the herd had to be thinned for the animals' own well-being, as food was scarce.

In addition, the deer were consuming the park's grasses and shrubs, reducing habitat and food for other creatures, including birds, they said.

Bettendorf began its hunt in 2003, followed by Davenport in 2004, Rock Island in 2013 and Moline \u2014 the latest to approve \u2014 in 2017. As in Scott County more than 20 years earlier, there were sometimes-heated arguments on both sides, with advocates saying the population had gotten out of hand and was consuming their landscapes in addition to posing a safety hazard with vehicle crashes. Others just wanted to leave the deer alone.

But the hunts are doing their job, managers say.

In Rock Island, where vehicle safety and browse damage caused by deer eating leaves and twigs were both concerns, Deputy Police Chief Jason Foy said, \"I definitely think it's helped.\"

\"Has it greatly reduced the number? Deer have quite a range, and they know Moline as well as Rock Island,\" he said. \"One day you might see 20 and the next day, 50. So it's hard to say. But our deer-vehicle accidents have decreased the last couple of years. So to me, that would say, 'Yeah, maybe we're doing a better job.' \"

In Loud Thunder, where hunting began in the mid-2000s in response to a deer density count that was double the carrying capacity of the park and where the browse line in the timber was visible, the hunts have reduced the population to a healthier rate, said Ben Mills, Loud Thunder superintendent.

\"We're holding at a healthy level for our carrying capacity,\" he said. \"We don't have an obvious browse line anymore, and we can plant trees and they don't all get eaten. We still lose a few, but it's nowhere near what I heard it was,\" Mills said, referring to a time before he started with the district.

Statewide, historical perspectives

When European settlers first arrived in the Midwest, white-tailed deer were abundant, but uncontrolled hunting for food and hides rapidly reduced their numbers.

By the late 1890s, deer had been virtually eliminated from Iowa, and deer hunting was made illegal, according to the Iowa DNR.

Re-establishment efforts were made and, by 1936, a conservative estimate was 500 to 700 animals in the state. These numbers grew until deer hunting was reinstated in 1953 and, in 1996, the harvest exceeded 100,000 for the first time.

Then, around the mid-2000s, the population exploded, and the state became more aggressive in getting the numbers under control by targeting does beginning in the 2013-14 season, Tyler Harms, DNR deer specialist, said.

The goal was to return deer population levels to those that existed in the mid-to-late 1990s, and this goal has been achieved, he said.

In Illinois, the approach is a bit different. \"Illinois does not try to achieve a certain statewide deer population level,\" Dan Skinner, forest wildlife program manager with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, wrote in an email.

Rather, the state looks at deer-vehicle accident rates. Such accidents were peaking in the early 2000s, and a joint task force on deer population control was created by the state general assembly. One of its recommendations was to use deer-vehicle accident rates as an objective for deer population management and the statewide number was set at 161 deer-vehicle accidents per billion miles traveled.

Specific deer-vehicle accident rate goals also were set for each county, with numbers ranging as low as 20 to 1,000 or more, but statewide, it was 161, Skinner said.

This was achieved in 2012 and hasn't been exceeded since, he said.

Statewide in Illinois, the annual deer harvest as held relatively steady in the period from 2013-17, hovering between 144,000 and 155,000.

In Iowa, likewise, annual harvest has been relatively consistent since 2013, Harms said. A sustained harvest of 100,000 is consistent with population goals established by the Iowa Deer Study Advisory Group and is indicative of a stable deer population statewide, he said.

ROCK ISLAND -- Veline Shukoru, 12, a Rock Island Academy student, still knows how important it is to study the life of Martin Luther King Jr., even after his 1968 assassination.

It remains important to learn about racism, and realize that the \"same stuff\" is faced even today, Veline said.

Celebrating King's birthday \"means the world to me,\" agreed Valerie Mayberry Mayes, of Davenport, originally from Rock Island. She was clad in a 2008 sweatshirt from President Barack Obama days, and left the Martin Luther King Center on route to a similar event at Davenport's Sacred Heart Church.

The 36th annual event at the King Center,\u00a0630 Ninth Street in Rock Island, lasted just about two hours in length.

The theme was \u201cAccepting evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.\"

The Rev. Darryl Keith Thompson, of House of Fire Ministries, delivered an inspiring keynote address.

\"My message was that we need unity in our community, and\u00a0 if we see something, we need to say something. We need to speak up against evils,\" Thompson said.

\"We need to stand up and be like Moses, a leader who stands up for justice,\" he said, citing Scripture from Biblical chapters of Exodus.\"We need more Moseses to say 'Let my people go,' from predatory loaning institutions, slum lords, rent-a-centers, and other things that are not good for our communities.

\"We need more Moseses like our educators, police officers, public servants and fair-minded politicians,\" he said.

More than 450 people attended the program, according to center executive director Jerry Jones.

The program also highlighted award presentations, such as to Brandy Donaldson, 36, of Rock Island, who received\u00a0the \u201cI Have A Dream Award\u201d for exceptional community service.

Anthony Collins, a Black Hawk College student majoring in music business was honored with the M.L. Lockhart Scholarship, while\u00a0Juana Perez Morales, a sixth grader at Rock Island Center for Math and Science, and and an interpretive dance group performing to John Legend's \"Glory\" claimed Youth Expression Contest Awards.

Rock Island Mayor Mike Thoms shared an official welcome, while pastor Earlye Julien from Living Water Christian Center delivered the invocation, and pastor Doug Rowland, of Rock Island Bible Church, gave the he benediction.

The program was gratifying to Jones because of having so many people coming to remember and honor Dr. King, he said.

PRESTON, Iowa \u2014 Dan Beck felt his Easton Valley boys basketball team gift-wrapped a victory for Calamus-Wheatland last month.

Turnovers, missed free throws, foul line violations and a last-second 3-pointer allowed the Warriors to rally from a double-digit deficit in the second half of a Dec. 11 meeting.

The inside duo of Kaleb Cornilsen and Curtis Hartung made sure the rematch wouldn\u2019t slip out of Easton Valley\u2019s hands.

Cornilsen and Hartung combined for 42 points and 21 rebounds as Easton Valley clobbered Class 1A 10th-ranked Calamus-Wheatland 80-55 Monday night.

\u201cI think tonight shows how determined we were,\u201d Beck said. \u201cOur guys knew we gave the one away at their place. Everything we could have screwed up, we did at the end.

\u201cThis was a real nice win for our team.\u201d

The Tri-Rivers East has been a three-way battle all winter. Clinton Prince of Peace has yet to drop a game in divisional play. Easton Valley and Cal-Wheat each have two division losses now.

For the River Hawks and Warriors to get a share of the league title, they\u2019ll both need to beat the Irish in the next two weeks.

\u201cWe\u2019re still in the running for tying for the conference,\u201d Cornilsen said. \u201cThis was a big game because of that, and it shows the community we\u2019re better than that first game.\u201d

Cal-Wheat came out in a zone defense. Easton Valley (14-2) made them pay with five 3-pointers in the first 9 \u00bd minutes.

When the Warriors shifted to man, they couldn\u2019t handle the 6-foot-5 Hartung and 6-3 Cornilsen.

Cornilsen had a team-high 23 points and nine rebounds while Hartung chipped in 19 points, 12 in the third quarter, and 12 boards. They were a combined 18-for-26 from the field.\u00a0

\u201cWe\u2019re hard to guard when we do a good job of getting them the ball,\u201d Beck said. \u201cThey\u2019ve both got really good skills.

\u201cKaleb can hit that mid-range jumper, and Curtis has a nice, soft touch inside. He\u2019s become a lot better athletically in the last year, year-and-a-half. They\u2019re a handful together.\u201d

The Warriors (12-3) trimmed an 11-point second-quarter deficit to six by halftime. The River Hawks pushed the margin to 19 points late in the third.

Cal-Wheat\u2019s leading scorer, Hunter Rickels, was limited to just two field goals and six points.

\u201cCoach talks all game about keeping it on \u2018em, don\u2019t let up,\u201d Hartung said. \u201cWhen the outside game isn\u2019t working, we\u2019re working it down low.

\u201cWhen we work together, we\u2019re tough to stop. We just feed off each other and play really well together.\u201d

The River Hawks, just outside the state\u2019s top 10 this week, have won seven straight. They haven\u2019t allowed more than 55 points in that stretch.

\u201cWe\u2019ve really come together and played better as a team,\u201d Cornilsen said. \u201cIn the first half of the season, we were being kind of selfish. We\u2019ve started to feed off each other, move the ball well and really find the open looks.\u201d

Nate Trenkamp and Cooper Kunde joined Cornilsen and Hartung in double figures with 16 and 12 points, respectively.

Sophomore Kaden Schnede had 23 points and 10 rebounds for the Warriors, who were 5 of 19 from beyond the arc.

Easton Valley welcomes Prince of Peace on Friday. Cal-Wheat plays host to Bellevue Marquette on Tuesday.

ROCK ISLAND\u00a0\u2014 Residents had an opportunity to voice their opinions Monday night on how to spend $1 million from the Housing and Urban Development Agency.

The fourth and final listening session for the five-year consolidated plan was held in the Southwest Community Room at the Southwest Library, 9010 Ridgewood Road.

Budgets and Grants Manager Colleen Small-Vollman conducts the meetings each year to gather input from residents and listen to ideas on how best to spend money that comes from the federal Housing and Urban Development agency.

Two men who spoke suggested the city should work on a lighting project for 11th Street. It was an idea that was well received, but Small-Vollman explained it would take working with the city works department and gathering support from others in the community.

Although almost all parts of the city would qualify for community development block grants, that may not always be true.

\"There are some things that I am noticing economically in Rock Island that are starting to adjust, and the trend is starting to change,\" Small-Vollman said.

Funds can be spent on anything from repairs to homes through the neighborhood housing program to projects such as the Glenhurst Court safety surveillance cameras installed in 2017.

\"What HUD wants to see with these funds is, they want to see us take it into an area that has been identified as needing a great deal of help, and focus our efforts and funding in that area,\" Small-Vollman said. \"Public works may not have the money to do it, but I might.\"

Out of the $1 million given by HUD, anywhere between $100,000 to $200,000 is unspoken for.

\"That's not set in stone,\" Small-Vollman said. \"We are looking at reworking a lot of the inner workings of how and where our funds are spent. We want it to be more project focused.\"

Small-Vollman said that attendance was better now than it was a couple of years ago when she first started, but there's still a lot of room for growth. Recent sessions in other parts of town garnered little to no participation, with one meeting having been held on a day with heavy snowfall.

At the listening session Monday night, four people were in attendance.

Participants were given sheets to fill out to express their ideas and priorities, and the sheets will be analyzed by a consulting firm. The report will be revealed to the public. From there, public hearings will be held at two consecutive Rock Island City Council meetings seeking further input and comments.

The number of deer killed in urban Quad-City hunts this season is in line with the past several years, and people in charge of the activity say that, in general, they accomplish the goal of keeping the population at a level good for deer and people.

The cities of Davenport, Bettendorf/Riverdale, Rock Island and Moline all allow a bow hunting season, as does the Scott County Conservation Department in Scott County Park and the Rock Island County Forest Preserve District in Loud Thunder.

In the season that ended this month, 88 deer were harvested in Davenport, 41 in Bettendorf/Riverdale, 41 in Scott County, 35 in Rock Island, 15 in Moline and 42 in Loud Thunder.

\"We're at a good maintenance level,\" Bettendorf Chief Keith Kimball said of the harvest numbers. \"The first year (2003), it was 170 some. There's definitely a need. If we skip a year or two, we lose a lot of ground.\"

According to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, Iowa's deer herd \u2014 if left unchecked \u2014 could grow at a rate of 20 to 40 percent each year. At that rate, deer numbers would double in as few as three years.

Urban hunting was highly controversial when it first came to the Quad-City area in 1996 in Scott County. At that time, the deer population in the park had exploded, with an estimated 400 animals in an area capable of supporting only about 150, according to accounts from the time. Advocates said the herd had to be thinned for the animals' own well-being, as food was scarce.

In addition, the deer were consuming the park's grasses and shrubs, reducing habitat and food for other creatures, including birds, they said.

Bettendorf began its hunt in 2003, followed by Davenport in 2004, Rock Island in 2013 and Moline \u2014 the latest to approve \u2014 in 2017. As in Scott County more than 20 years earlier, there were sometimes-heated arguments on both sides, with advocates saying the population had gotten out of hand and was consuming their landscapes in addition to posing a safety hazard with vehicle crashes. Others just wanted to leave the deer alone.

But the hunts are doing their job, managers say.

In Rock Island, where vehicle safety and browse damage caused by deer eating leaves and twigs were both concerns, Deputy Police Chief Jason Foy said, \"I definitely think it's helped.\"

\"Has it greatly reduced the number? Deer have quite a range, and they know Moline as well as Rock Island,\" he said. \"One day you might see 20 and the next day, 50. So it's hard to say. But our deer-vehicle accidents have decreased the last couple of years. So to me, that would say, 'Yeah, maybe we're doing a better job.' \"

In Loud Thunder, where hunting began in the mid-2000s in response to a deer density count that was double the carrying capacity of the park and where the browse line in the timber was visible, the hunts have reduced the population to a healthier rate, said Ben Mills, Loud Thunder superintendent.

\"We're holding at a healthy level for our carrying capacity,\" he said. \"We don't have an obvious browse line anymore, and we can plant trees and they don't all get eaten. We still lose a few, but it's nowhere near what I heard it was,\" Mills said, referring to a time before he started with the district.

Statewide, historical perspectives

When European settlers first arrived in the Midwest, white-tailed deer were abundant, but uncontrolled hunting for food and hides rapidly reduced their numbers.

By the late 1890s, deer had been virtually eliminated from Iowa, and deer hunting was made illegal, according to the Iowa DNR.

Re-establishment efforts were made and, by 1936, a conservative estimate was 500 to 700 animals in the state. These numbers grew until deer hunting was reinstated in 1953 and, in 1996, the harvest exceeded 100,000 for the first time.

Then, around the mid-2000s, the population exploded, and the state became more aggressive in getting the numbers under control by targeting does beginning in the 2013-14 season, Tyler Harms, DNR deer specialist, said.

The goal was to return deer population levels to those that existed in the mid-to-late 1990s, and this goal has been achieved, he said.

In Illinois, the approach is a bit different. \"Illinois does not try to achieve a certain statewide deer population level,\" Dan Skinner, forest wildlife program manager with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, wrote in an email.

Rather, the state looks at deer-vehicle accident rates. Such accidents were peaking in the early 2000s, and a joint task force on deer population control was created by the state general assembly. One of its recommendations was to use deer-vehicle accident rates as an objective for deer population management and the statewide number was set at 161 deer-vehicle accidents per billion miles traveled.

Specific deer-vehicle accident rate goals also were set for each county, with numbers ranging as low as 20 to 1,000 or more, but statewide, it was 161, Skinner said.

This was achieved in 2012 and hasn't been exceeded since, he said.

Statewide in Illinois, the annual deer harvest as held relatively steady in the period from 2013-17, hovering between 144,000 and 155,000.

In Iowa, likewise, annual harvest has been relatively consistent since 2013, Harms said. A sustained harvest of 100,000 is consistent with population goals established by the Iowa Deer Study Advisory Group and is indicative of a stable deer population statewide, he said.

Urban hunts keep deer in check

A title fight press conference can oftentimes be more of a show than the actual main event.

However, that hyper-kinetic kind of hype was missing Monday at the Rhythm City Casino, where a locally-flavored pro boxing card was announced for Feb. 2.

Setting a friendly tone for an event titled \"Destiny\" were the main event combatants, Rock Island's Limberth Ponce and Davenport's Stephen Edwards, and two truly intertwined camps competing for the Iowa State Junior Middleweight championship.

Ponce's long-time trainer, Moline's Jeff Perez, is working the other corner while Edwards' one-time coach, East Moline's Nile Pena, is on the opposite side, too.

\"It's hardly personal. This is just business,\" Pena explained with a laugh.

Perez, a longtime local trainer, added this is hardly the first time he's ever faced one of his fighters, and noted that more than a half dozen of his proteges are also appearing on the card.

\"Jeff and I have known each other a long time,\" added Pena, who also has worked with several boxers as a local amateur coach. \"We've traveled together to (amateur) tournaments. So there's no animosity there, only respect.\"

That also helps explain why neither fighter wanted to make a fist Monday when goaded into the normal pre-fight photo featuring boxers squaring off.

Instead, both Ponce and Edwards extended an index finger, claiming to be No. 1, but also pointing in deference to each other while posing with the title belt for which they are battling.

\"We used to be sparring partners,\" Edwards explained. \"Limbo's a hard-working family man just like me. We're friends. I have nothing but respect for him. Us fighting is just what's best for boxing right now in the Quad-Cities.\"

Ponce (16-3, 10 KOs) and Edwards (10-0-1) are a combined 18-0 in their backyard, led by 11 victories from Ponce.

Edwards has won the Continental Boxing Association's Super Middleweight and Mid-American Middleweight championships while Ponce is a 2012 Chicago Golden Gloves winner who has fought on ESPN and CBS Sports Network in televised fight cards around the country.

\"I've been training hard for this because I plan to keep myself unbeaten in the Quad Cities,\" Ponce said in what qualified for trash talk Monday.

Among the other locals on the card are veteran journeymen such as Rock Island's Ted Muller and East Moliner's Joe Perez and Lionel Jimenez.

Also making their boxing debuts are a pair of Mixed-Martial Arts standouts from Davenport -- Shawn West is opposing Jimenez, and former Scott County Sheriff's deputy Kristine Ion-Rood is appearing in the first women's pro bout locally since 1993.

Tickets are on sale now online or by phone through the casino, or at The Market gift shop inside the facility. Tickets range from $75 ringside to $25 general admission.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. fight night, with action starting at 7, and the main event going off around 9:30.

DES MOINES \u2014 A survey of Eastern Iowa Democratic base and swing voters found a nervous electorate either supporting President Donald Trump for re-election or unsure of how to defeat him in 2020.

The Front Porch Focus Group report found 21 percent of swing voters plan to back Trump. At the same time, the electorate is up for grabs with 42 percent of Democratic base voters and 53 percent of swing voters undecided on who they will support.

The results are based on 304 face-to-face interviews from late October to mid-December in Cedar Rapids, Cedar Falls, Dubuque and smaller communities in Eastern Iowa. It was done for Working America, the community affiliate of the AFL-CIO, to gauge the mood in working-class neighborhoods of Democratic base and swing voters.

Although dozens of Democrats have indicated they\u2019re considering 2020 presidential bids, survey participants were not confident that any one of them would beat Trump. Less than half, 49 percent, are confident a Democrat will win the presidency.

Tim Hagle, a University of Iowa political-science professor, was struck by that.

\u201cThe 2018 results in Iowa were mixed, but Democrats should still be pretty fired up,\u201d he said.

The interviews found widespread disaffection with politicians. Nearly half of swing voters said it doesn\u2019t make any difference to their economic prospects whether Democrats or Republicans are in control. A similar percentage could not name an elected official who is fighting for them.

It was even higher \u2014 81 percent \u2014 in May when Working America sampled Eastern Iowa voters, Executive Director Matt Morrison said. When controlled for who they voted for in 2016, about two-thirds of Trump voters and about three-quarters of Hillary Clinton voters said they don\u2019t see anyone fighting for them. \u201cThey don\u2019t see a system that speaks to them,\u201d Morrison said.

The survey also found that Iowans \u201chold some of the grimmest views of personal economic well-being in the country,\u201d according to the report. Democrats, Working America said, need to re-establish credibility on jobs and the economy.

The survey found that the farther a population is removed from a large, dynamic economy the less confident its members are about their economic prospects, Morison said. There were differences between the level of optimism for people in Cedar Rapids, for example, and in rural areas. Personal economic confidence, he added, is closely tied to employment opportunities and the perception of opportunities for the next generation, he said.

In looking at the results, Hagle and Chris Larimer, a political-science professor at the University of Northern Iowa, had concerns about the survey methods.

\u201cVote history is typically the strongest predictor of whether someone will vote,\u201d Larimer said. However, Working America did not survey a random sample of voters, the report lacked definitions of swing and base voters and included no information about the demographics of those who were interviewed.

\u201cAre the 300 voters in this survey likely voters? We don\u2019t know,\u201d Larimer said. \u201cIt\u2019s hard to know how representative the findings are of rural or Eastern Iowa voters.\u201d

Hagle speculated many who expressed frustration \u201care likely the same folks who were so fed up with the establishment of both parties they took a chance on Trump as an outsider who might actually get things done.\u201d

\u201cOf course, if Trump doesn\u2019t \u2018get things done\u2019 in one way or another, then those swing voters could very well swing the other way,\u201d Hagle added.

Voters in the survey also said they are frustrated by politicians who \u201cparachute\u201d into Iowa to campaign, and they are looking for candidates who understand the complexities of Iowa.

\u201cThey told us most candidates don\u2019t understand we have a very diverse economy \u2014 we\u2019re not all farmers,\u201d Morrison said.

Joe Wieskamp\u2019s week began with one of the worst first halves of his first season of college basketball.

But it ended perfectly with the former Muscatine High School star winning his first \u2014 but almost certainly not his last \u2014 Big Ten weekly award.

Wieskamp was named the Big Ten\u2019s freshman of the week Monday after he made all eight of his field goal attempts \u2014 including six 3-pointers \u2014 while matching his career high of 24 points in a 95-71 rout of Illinois on Sunday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

The performance was a testament not only to his marksmanship but to his resilience because a few days earlier you never would have thought this was going to be the week that he finally broke through and won the award.

In the first half Wednesday night on the road at Penn State, Wieskamp was 0 for 4 from the field and had enough early defensive lapses that Iowa coach Fran McCaffery removed him from the game within the first three minutes.

Wieskamp bounced back to score 10 points in the second half against the Nittany Lions and was much better at the defensive end. He also finished with seven rebounds for the third straight game.

Then on Sunday he was flat-out amazing.

He admitted he couldn\u2019t ever recall having a game in which he made every shot he took.

\u201cI\u2019m not sure if I ever have before or not, but it\u2019s a great feeling,\u2019\u2019 he said. \u201cI have the confidence every game that every shot I take is going to go in and luckily today that\u2019s what happened.\u2019\u2019

Illinois coach Brad Underwood insisted that he saw Wieskamp make 19 straight shots during pregame warmups, but Wieskamp wasn\u2019t sure about that. He said he didn\u2019t really feel any different before this game.

\u201cI try to do the same preparation before every game, get a lot of shots up,\u2019\u2019 he said. \u201cI\u2019m not sure if that (making 19 in a row) is true or not. I just go out there and shoot.\u2019\u2019

In any case, Underwood was impressed. Who wasn\u2019t?

\u201cThat kid is going to make a lot of money someday,\u2019\u2019 Underwood said.

Winston wins: The Big Ten player of the week award was won by someone the Hawkeyes will see in the next few days. Michigan State point guard Cassius Winston, who comes to town with the No. 6-ranked Spartans on Thursday, scored 29 points and handed out six assists in a victory over Nebraska last week.

Hot shooting: In case you were wondering where Wieskamp\u2019s 8-for-8 shooting effort ranks nationally in NCAA Division I this season, there actually have been 11 instances in which a player was perfect from field with 10 or more attempts.

One of those came against Iowa. Michigan State\u2019s Nick Ward, who the Hawkeyes will see again Thursday, was 10 for 10 against them back on Dec. 3.

The top shooting performance of the season so far is by Northern Illinois\u2019 Levi Bradley, who was 13 for 13 in a Nov. 25 game against Oakland.

More hot shooting: On a day when Iowa was lighting it up from 3-point range, making 15 of 21 shots from behind the arc, a former player who could still be playing for the Hawkeyes was doing the same.

Brady Ellingson, who went to Drake as a graduate transfer after last season, was 7 for 8 from 3-point range in helping the Bulldogs to a victory over Missouri State on Sunday. That was enough to earn Ellingson both Missouri Valley Conference player and newcomer of the week honors.

Rising: After extending their winning streak to five games Sunday, the Hawkeyes moved up four spots in the Associated Press Top 25. They\u2019re now No. 19.

Among other Big Ten teams, Michigan is No. 5, Michigan State No. 6 and Maryland No. 13. Nebraska, Purdue and Wisconsin all are still receiving votes but three Big Ten teams who had been mentioned on ballots in previous weeks \u2014 Indiana, Minnesota and Ohio State \u2014 are no longer getting any votes.

Looking older: You may have noticed that Iowa point guard Jordan Bohannon has allowed his facial hair to propagate lately.

The junior point guard just thought it might reinforce his status as one of the team\u2019s most experienced players if he wore a beard.

\u201cI looked at pictures of me from the last few years and I said \u2018Man, I look really young,\u2019\u2019\u2019 Bohannon said. \u201cSo I decided to spice it up a little bit and look like a veteran for once.\u2019\u2019

No DQs: With Illinois\u2019 Giorgi Bezhanishvili and Aaron Jordan fouling out Sunday, there have now been 14 players disqualified from games on fouls against Iowa this season.

The Hawkeyes haven\u2019t had a single player foul out.

In fact, there have been only nine instances in which an Iowa player committed even four fouls in a game. Isaiah Moss, Connor McCaffery and Tyler Cook have done it three times each and Luka Garza, Nicholas Baer and Ryan Kriener each has done it once.

Before tipping off its game against league-leading Rutgers on Wednesday, the Iowa women\u2019s basketball program will honor the coach of the opposing team.

Scarlet Knights coach C. Vivian Stringer, who spent 12 seasons as the Hawkeyes\u2019 coach and led the program to its only Final Four appearance, will be recognized prior to the start of 14th-ranked Rutgers\u2019 7 p.m. game against the 17th-ranked Hawkeyes at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Iowa coach Lisa Bluder said the recognition is being given to honor Stringer for reaching 1,000 career victories earlier this season.

\u201cWe hope that people will come out and cheer for Vivian for all that she has meant to women\u2019s basketball before the game and then we hope they\u2019ll cheer for the Hawkeyes during the game,\u2019\u2019 Bluder said.

Stringer became the sixth coach of an NCAA Division I women\u2019s or men\u2019s team to win 1,000 games when Rutgers defeated Central Connecticut State on Nov. 15.

Of those victories, 269 came during her tenure at Iowa from 1983-95.

Stringer arrived in Iowa City from Cheyney State in 1983 and guided a program which had only two winning seasons in its first nine years of existence to unprecedented success.

Her first 11 Iowa teams finished with winning records and Stringer coached the Hawkeyes to six Big Ten championships, eight NCAA tourney berths and an appearance in the 1993 Final Four.

\u201cShe\u2019s a hall of famer, led our program to the Final Four. Vivian brought the program a lot of respect and really put Iowa women\u2019s basketball on the map,\u2019\u2019 Bluder said. \u201cIt\u2019s a unique situation, honoring the coach of the opposing team before a game, but it\u2019s deserved.\u2019\u2019

This season, Stringer\u2019s Scarlet Knights are 15-3 and bring a 10-game winning streak into Wednesday\u2019s game, including victories in their first seven Big Ten games. Iowa enters the game in a three-way for second in the conference, two games back at 5-2.

ROCK ISLAND\u00a0\u2014 Old Main at Augustana College has been cleared after a refrigerant leak forced the building to close and staff and students to evacuate Monday.\u00a0

Augustana Director of Public Relations Ashleigh Johnston said the building would remain closed the rest of Monday, but students and faculty would be allowed a window of time to go in and collect any items they left behind.\u00a0

Johnston said classes would resume as scheduled today.\u00a0

Johnston said the leak occurred between\u00a09:30 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. Monday when a non-toxic fog was accidentally released by an HVAC worker performing routine maintenance at the building, 639 38th St.

\"It was during our regular class period, so students had to be evacuated, in addition to other personnel,\" Johnston said Monday.\u00a0

Johnston said she did not know how many people had to be evacuated. She said there were no known injuries due to inhaling the substance.\u00a0

\"We do have crews on the scene doing air quality maintenance,\" Johnston said. \"We want to make sure all air quality tests are done before we open it.

\"The building has been cleared, but we are keeping it closed for the remainder of the day,\" Johnston said.\u00a0 \u200b \u200b

Johnston thanked the Rock Island Fire Department and \"other community partners\" for their quick response to the scene and their assistance in making sure the building was cleared.\u00a0

Johnston has advised people to avoid the area until Old Main has been cleared for re-entry.\u00a0

MUSCATINE\u00a0\u2014\u00a0Muscatine County residents want the use of slag to end. Period.

\"It's better than nothing,\" said Daryl Sywassink, a leader of the residents slag committee regarding last week's decision by the Muscatine County Board of Supervisors to suspend the use of slag on county roads until more information about the material is available.

Committee leader Doug Hoag made brief comments Monday before the board. He said reports of testing results from samples taken from Harsco slag piles in 2012 and Jan. 4 were available from the State Hygenic Lab at the University of Iowa. Heavy metals, arsenic, cadmium and mercury were tested in January but not in 2012. In the recent report, all three metals were present in the Harsco sample.

According to the Jan. 4 report, the manganese level in the sample was 19,000 mg/kg. When the slag committee did its own testing of the material, the results showed 22,000 mg/kg concentration of manganese in the sample. Both concentrations are well over the allowable amount for children.

Edward Askew, a resident and scientific consultant who analyzed the sample while working with the slag committee, said the values were \"basically the same number\" from a scientific perspective.\u00a0

As far as the toxicity of slag, Askew doesn't want to be right about it being harmful to humans.

\"I want to be 100 percent wrong, but I haven't been wrong so far,\" he said. \"It's terrible to be right on things like this.\"

Hoag gave the board information from three reports; a November, 2012 analysis of a Harsco sample sent to Iowa DNR; a May 30, 2018 analysis of slag found on a county road by the slag committee and a Jan. 1 analysis of a sample collected by Iowa DNR from a slag pile at Harsco that was cited as being the same kind used on county roads.

\"So it shows that these analysis we had the first time are pretty darn close so, it is toxic material,\" he said. \"We need to get it taken\u00a0care of and we need to get it stopped on county roads.\"

Planning and Zoning Administrator Eric Furnas also spoke briefly about slag during the meeting. He said a conference call took place last Wednesday with some county staff, Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) and IDNR about the most recent slag testing and the amount of manganese present in the sample.

Furnas confirmed that the discussion revealed \"the manganese numbers were considerably higher than what we had seen previously.\" In high quantities, manganese may lead to negative health affects in children, especially children that ingest the slag.

\"After reviewing the information that you provided on the slag that is being deposited on roads in Muscatine County,\" said state toxicologist Stuart Schmitz in a correspondence with Askew, \"I would conclude that children living and playing in areas where the slag was deposited could experience adverse health impacts from the manganese within the slag. The health impacts would potentially be more severe for children exhibiting pica behavior (eating it).\"

Furnas said during the conference call with IDNR and IDPH, \"they did indicate that at this time, there is no evidence to suggest that there's a public health issue with it as far as what are out on the county roads.\"

He said both departments collectively plan to conduct sampling of county roads \"at their choosing, using their methods and then they would get us some information.\"

The slag committee wants transparency in the collection process and how Iowa DNR will conduct testing of samples. If information from the state departments shows there is a need to remove slag from the roads, the committee wants to know how and when it will be done.

\"Just being suspended is not cutting it for us,\" Hoag said.

Well, we made it through another year. With 2018 ushered out the door, 2019 brings a time for new beginnings. Over the past month we\u2019ve had everything from 50s to a few inches of snow. Winter wants to keep things interesting.

If you are anything like me, you might have enjoyed your holidays a bit too much. While I continued to run, I did step my mileage back so I could spend that extra time with family and friends.

With this being a new year, I thought I would cover a few items for folks dipping their toes back in the water and for those who\u2019ve been running consistently for at least the past few months.

Returning Runners (inactive for at least a few months):

  1. Remember to walk before you run. Going from no physical exertion to running can wreak havoc on your body. Spend at least a few weeks walking to help get your muscles and tendons ready for what\u2019s to come.
  2. When you do start running, ease back into it. Incorporating a run/walk system is a good way to get back up to speed safely. You can base this on time (preferred) or mileage.
  3. Don\u2019t get discouraged. It seems that a few weeks after the new year, a lot of people abandon their fitness goals. Don\u2019t be hard on yourself if things aren\u2019t as easy as they used to be. Think of the character you will build by working through those tough points and what the result of your hard work will be!

Veteran Runners:

  1. You more than likely have an event penciled in this year if not written in sharpie somewhere. What you need to be doing now, is dependent upon the timing of such event.
  2. If your event is in the next 10-16 weeks, if you aren\u2019t doing any effort-based work (intervals, tempos, etc.) you should start adding in at least a day\u2019s worth each week.
  3. If your event is over 16 weeks out, you really don\u2019t need to spend much time doing effort work. If you like having a hard effort day, certainly keep it in the rotation. I would certainly recommend adding some strides as well as changing up the terrain you run on if you aren\u2019t already. Being over four months out from a goal race, you want to make sure you aren\u2019t burning yourself out.

Two area nonprofit groups that help people build safe homes are merging to build their own stronger, more effective organization.

Habitat for Humanity Quad Cities, founded in 1993, and Rebuilding Together Quad Cities, begun in 1990, are merging, Habitat announced Monday. As of Feb. 4, RTQC will be Habitat\u2019s home-repair program and cease to be an independent organization.

Steve Barton, the RTQC's executive director and only staffer, will become an employee of Habitat. He will continue to lead the repair program.

\"This change will allow us to be more effective and efficient in serving the housing needs of low-income families and allow us to have a greater impact on our community as a whole,\" Barton said in a release. \"Administrative costs will decrease, our volunteer base can be better utilized and our resources will stretch further.\"

Kristi Crafton, Habitat's executive director, said the merger would allow more people to be served by the effort.

\"We believe everyone deserves a safe and affordable place to call home,\" Crafton said. \"We work well with the RTQC volunteers and welcome them and Steve into our Habitat family.\"

The release said HFHQC was \u201ccommitted to helping low-income families build strength, stability, and self-reliance\" through new home construction, a neighborhood revitalization program, a wheelchair ramp-building program and the Habitat ReStore in Davenport.

Founded as Hearts and Hammers QCA, Rebuilding Together began as a way for volunteers to provide free emergency and critical home repairs for elderly, disabled and low-income homeowners. In 2001, it became affiliated with the national Rebuilding Together and changed its name to Rebuilding Together Quad Cities.

HFHQC, part of a worldwide effort is\u00a0a partnership that has worked on 114 Quad-Cities homes since 1993, Crafton said. Homeowners buy houses Habitat builds and renovates, investing hundreds of hours of their own labor while working with volunteers. She said it had produced payment of more than $1.1 million in local property taxes from the new homes.

RTQC has completed 1,000 projects, Barton said. The groups have partnered on projects such as \u201cRock the Block\u201d Sept. 26, 2015, in Moline's Floreciente neighborhood when more than 30 repairs and a cleanup were conducted.

Crafton said they were working together on a pilot program to build modular wheelchair ramps. A partnership formed last year has built and installed eight handicap-accessible ramps for low-income families with funding from the Scott County Housing Cluster and the Day and Rauch foundations.

\"It makes sense we join forces,\u201d Crafton said.

In 2014, Habitat launched its own repair program, a revitalization initiative in the Floreciente neighborhood. There it has done 66 house projects, including 50-plus property beautifications and cleanups and critical home repairs, which are bigger projects like siding, roofing or plumbing with work done on a sliding-fee scale for homeowner based on income, Crafton said.

In Floreciente, HFHQC also has done 228 physical condition surveys to help homeowners assess needs and make repair recommendations, she said.

In 2016, RTQC started a partnership with Rock Island's\u00a0KeyStone Neighborhood Association,\u00a0St. John's Lutheran Church, the city and\u00a0Augustana College\u00a0to provide free needed home repairs/modifications in KeyStone.

Crafton said the merger would allow HFHQC and RTQC to expand services into other parts of the community and build on its base of often common volunteers. She and Barton also have discussed with funders about what the changes will mean.

\u201cMy biggest concern is that people who maybe supported the repair programs, and others supported us, will just think they can give the one organization a smaller amount of money,\u201d she said.

\"We'll have lower administrative costs, lower overhead, share tools,\" she said. \"It literally makes good business sense. We hope funders would consider that, to fund both home-building and the repair.\u201d

RTQC, which has been based at 2435 Kimberly Road, Bettendorf, will consolidate at Habitat's office at 3625 Mississippi Ave., Davenport. For more details, call Habitat at 563-359-9066 or visit habitatqc.org.

SIOUX CITY \u2014 This isn't the 2019 in the U.S. House that Steve King had in mind when he won a ninth term in November.

King, a full-throated social conservative, was looking to fending off Democratic initiatives and support fellow Republican President Donald Trump against possible impeachment proceedings. Instead, the Iowa 4th district congressman is now fighting for his own political life, and vowing not to resign, after recent remarks on white supremacy\u00a0elicited calls for his censure within the very first week of the 116th Congress.

It has been a contentious few weeks for King.

House Republican leaders voted Jan. 14 to take away all of his committee assignments for the next two years in the wake of a New York Times story in which he was quoted as saying, \"White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization \u2014 how did that language become offensive?\" The next day, the House overwhelmingly approved a resolution of disapproval intended to rebuke King\u00a0and denounced \u201chateful expressions of intolerance that are contradictory to the values that define the people of the United States.\u201d

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Sen. Mitt Romney, a former GOP presidential candidate, and Rep. Liz Cheney, the third-ranking GOP House member and daughter of a former vice president, were among the elected officials who suggested King resign his seat. The Journal and three other daily newspapers that circulate in the 4th District \u2014 The Ames Tribune, Des Moines Register and Fort Dodge Messenger \u2014 also published editorials calling for King to step down.\u00a0

Despite the uproar, a defiant King refuses to leave.\u00a0

\"No, no chance at all. I'll go out of this place dead before that happens and the Lord will have to make that decision,\" King told WHO Radio on Tuesday.

To the contrary, King quickly sent out an email urging supporters to donate to his re-election campaign, casting himself as a victim of a cabal of the \"unhinged left\" and \"NeverTrumpers\" who are out to \"destroy\" him because of his unwavering opposition to illegal immigration.

In the email, King tied himself to President Donald Trump, noting the Times \"relentlessly and dishonestly attacks\" the Republican president and now is \"coming after me by shamelessly twisting my words, quoting me out of context, and using their Leftist comrades in the media to parrot their false talking points.\"

\u201cWe have seen this playbook before \u2026\u00a0like when the media tried to defeat President Trump by calling him a racist,\u201d he continued. \"We know how that worked out, don't we?\"

Before the latest controversy, King was in line for seats on the Agriculture, Small Business and Judiciary committees. As one of the president's \"strongest allies,\" King claimed, in his fundraising letter this week, he was targeted because his Judiciary seat put him in \"perfect position to defend Donald Trump against the impeachment charges that are so likely to be brought.\"

In a Dec. 18 interview with The Journal, King promised to vigorously defend Trump if\u00a0Democrats attempted to impeach him over charges related to special prosecutor Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

King dismissed accusations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. He called for a deadline for Mueller to finish the investigation.

He said Americans are divided on whether Trump was involved in issues being investigated by Mueller, \"based on who they want to believe,\" since the president has supporters and detractors, depending on how they view his policies and personal life.

Minority party

In the December interview, King also said he would support Trump's quest to build a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico. Democrats have refused Trump's demand for at least $5 billion for the wall, leading to the shutdown of non-essential parts of the federal government since Dec. 22, the longest in U.S. history.

King described the wall as the \"most pivotal\" and \"contentious\" piece of legislation this year. King, who had been in line to be the ranking member of the Judiciary's subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice after serving as chairman of the panel, argues the wall would stem the tide of illegal immigration from Mexico and Central and South American nations.

In his latest email to donors, King insisted he also was targeted by his political opponents because \"(they) know full well I've been pushing for tougher immigration law for years\" and \"they universally understand that, were it not for me in Congress, amnesty would be the law of the land for tens of millions of illegal aliens.\"

Even before the latest setbacks, King was adjusting to life in the minority party after Democrats won 40 seats in the mid-term elections.\u00a0

\"(House Majority Leader) Nancy Pelosi will take that big gavel and kill off anything I want,\" King said in December.

With Democrats in charge, King in the interview said he would be forced to resort to more House floor speeches and media interviews to counteract the bad public policy pieces he assumes will be introduced.

Primary challenge

The uproar over King's white supremacist comments came just days after Randy Feenstra, a prominent Republican state senator from Northwest Iowa, announced he would challenge\u00a0King in the 2020 GOP primary.\u00a0

Feenstra, an assistant Senate majority leader who also chairs the powerful Ways and Means Committee, has argued King's long history of racially-charged comments has embarrassed the district and the state and reduced his influence in the House. King's recent removal from all House committees has compounded that problem, Feenstra said.

\"Today, Northwest Iowa doesn't have a voice in Congress because Steve King's caustic nature has left us without a seat at the table,\" Feenstra said in a tweet. \"It's time to #RetireSteveKing.\"

King's weak showing in last fall's election led Feenstra to enter the race. After winning re-election by 23 points in 2016, King squeaked by Democrat J.D. Scholten by just 3 percent in November in a district where there are 70,000 more registered Republicans than Democrats.\u00a0

A recent poll suggested King's political standing in the district has fallen even more following the wave of negative publicity.\u00a0

The\u00a0poll, published by a PAC created by Jim Mowrer, a Democrat who previously ran for the 4th District seat, showed 42 percent of voters have a favorable opinion of King, while 54 percent have an unfavorable opinion. That's a far worst split than for Republican Gov. Kim Reynolds (61/31), Sen. Joni Ernst (59/30), and Trump (57/42).

When asked whether voters would choose King or a generic Democratic candidate for Congress right now, King lost to the generic Democrat, 45 percent to 37 percent, with 18 percent saying they were unsure. Poll respondents also chose Scholten over King, 44 percent to 39 percent. The poll did not test King against Feenstra or other challenges in a hypothetical primary.

20-20 Insight LLC, an Atlanta-based firm founded by Democrats, surveyed 472 likely voters in the 4th District on Jan. 16 and 17.

Mixed constituent reviews

Hannah O'Callaghan, of Sioux City, said she doesn't support King, contending reports of his support for white supremacists constitute \"baggage\" that makes him less effective as a congressman. In\u00a0a Jan. 7 interview with the Journal, prior to publication of the Times story, she referred to King having to\u00a0defend his remarks on race\u00a0and support for political candidates and parties with ties to white supremacy in the final weeks of last fall's campaign.

\"I don't think he should be (serving), with all the things he had going on,\" O'Callaghan said.

In a separate interview, also on Jan. 7, Gordon Thompson, of Sioux City, said King has been responsive to voters needs of the 4th District.

While Thompson likes King's stance on policies and has repeatedly voted for him, he said he's glad King announced two weeks ago he would break with his recent practice and\u00a0hold public town hall meetings in all 39\u00a0counties of the district.

The first forum is scheduled for Thursday, but King's office has not yet announced where it will be held.

\"He does care. I'm just glad someone shook him up, because now he is paying attention,\" Thompson said.

In the email appeal last week, King also claimed the \"rabid leftist media\" because they were \"unable to defeat my campaign in the 2018 midterm elections\" are now \"blasting the airwaves in a pathetic attempt\u00a0to paint me as a 'racist.' \"

King has repeatedly insisted the Times \"completely mischaracterized\" his comments during a nearly hour-long interview. The congressman said he rejects the ideology of white supremacy, adding that he comes from a family of abolitionists who \"paid a price with their lives to make sure that all men and now all women are created equal.\"

\"Like the Founding Fathers, I am indeed a champion of Western Civilization and American culture \u2014 I'm an American Nationalist \u2014 not a 'White Nationalist' or 'White Supremacist,'' as the Times imply in their biased coverage,\" he wrote in the fundraising email.

Want to know who filled at least two Quad-City movie auditoriums over the weekend?

Fans of the animated \u201cDragon Ball\u201d franchise flocked to see the latest release. Although I can\u2019t count myself as a true aficionado, I enjoyed my first exploration into this series that\u2019s been around since the 1980s.

Although it\u2019s far from what would be considered a mainstream movie, as of this writing (Sunday) \u201cDragon Ball Super: Broly\" ranks number four at the box office (the new release \u201cGlass\u201d is at the top).

The movie is a sequel to \u201cDragon Ball Super,\u201d which is an Akira Toriyama series that began in 2015.

And now that I have some of you\u00a0\u2014 those more accustomed to seeing, say, the latest Disney or DreamWorks animation\u00a0\u2014 scratching your heads, please allow me to share some of the research I did before I saw the movie.

Toriyama created the series in 1984 as a \u201cmanga,\u201d Japanese comics that are aimed at people of all ages (if you really want to go down an interesting rabbit-hole, do some internet research yourself about when manga actually began\u00a0\u2014 arguably centuries ago).

Some of the more popular manga become anime, or animated series. Thus it was with \u201cDragon Ball,\u201d which was produced as two different anime series in Japan beginning in 1986.

It will come as no surprise that action figures and video games are part of the franchise, too.

The main character of the series is Son Goku, a martial arts expert who wants to find the seven Dragon Balls. When they are collected, they summon a dragon that will grant one wish to the person who possesses them. Throughout his adventures, Son Goku meets all kinds of creatures and people, and engages in all kinds of battles.

This is an origins story about Goku and Broly, a villainous character.

The tone is fantasy\u00a0\u2014 a tinge of \u201cHarry Potter,\u201d a sprinkling of \u201cSuperman\u201d and a dash of \u201cStar Wars\u201d\u00a0\u2014 with a lot of intergalactic travel and ships as well as a variety of characters, some more human-appearing than others.

Much of the script, when it isn\u2019t dwelling on the battles so lengthy they make the fight scene in \u201cThey Live\u201d seem seconds long, is focused on Broly and his sad, lonely plight.

There is an abundance of character development, especially toward the beginning of the story, including themes about rivalry, power, cruelty and friendship that transcend animation and are as old as storytelling itself.

Part of the movie\u2019s appeal is its music, including my favorite number, \u201cBlizzard\u201d by Daichi Miura.

The animation is glorious at times, full of color, action and environments.

I like the look of it. And I also like the way the big screen brings us together to enjoy global pop culture.

He has trimmed and tamed his beard and at least once formed it into a goatee, but the 45-year-old\u2019s face hasn\u2019t been clean-shaven since he was 25.

For the past five years, Long has let his beard grow to a condition his friends describe as \u201cglorious\u201d and \u201clike a Viking.\u201d If it was up to him, he\u2019d probably never shave again. He doesn\u2019t own a razor.

But it\u2019s not up to him anymore.

If his friends and strangers raise a little more than $2,000 by mid-February, then Long, who lives in Orion, Ill., has promised to publicly shave his beard off.

\u201cMy chin hasn\u2019t seen sunlight in 20 years,\u201d he said. \u201cI wouldn\u2019t shave it all off, just because. There\u2019s no way.\u201d

As Long says, the cause\u00a0\u2014 the annual Quad-Cities Red Dress Run, which this year is raising money for the Friendly House\u00a0\u2014 is more important than his beard.

\u201cThe more I thought about it, I figured it\u2019s only hair,\u201d Long said of his \u201csignature\u201d beard. \u201cAnd if seeing my chin can help raise money for a good cause, I\u2019m all for that.\u201d

'Our Christmas'

The Red Dress Run, which will mark is ninth annual run on Feb. 16, is by far the biggest event of the year for Long and the 300 or so members of the Quad-City Hash House Harriers, a self-described \u201cdrinking club with a running problem\u201d that meets for weekly runs.

\u201cIt\u2019s like our Christmas,\u201d Long said. \u201cIt\u2019s a day we all really look forward to.\u201d

That too goes for Betsy\u00a0Green, a longtime member and former club captain, who considers the Red Dress Run her \u201cfavorite day of the year.\u201d

\u201cIt\u2019s a day full of silliness and fun,\u201d she said. \u201cEveryone is just in a good mood.\u201d

The Red Dress Run gets its name from the red dresses participants don as they run around the Quad-Cities, following, in true \u201chashing\u201d tradition, a trail devised that day by leaders of the group. The trail is marked by chalk or flour and includes stops for games and contests and, as Green said, \u201cplenty of beer.\u201d

\u201cIt\u2019s basically a scavenger hunt with booze,\u201d she said. \u201cAnd we all just happened to be wearing red dresses. Because everyone looks good in a red dress.\u201d

And by the way, they mean everyone: The Red Dress Run is open to the public, including runners of any pace and walkers.

\u201cIt\u2019s really not about the running,\u201d Long said. \u201cYou just have to be willing to have fun.\u201d

In the past, the event\u2019s participants have stopped at parks or bars to chug beers or have a giant snowball fight.\u00a0

Naturally, the red dress-clad runners draw attention from passersby.

\u201cWe pass by some people and they\u2019re like, \u2018What is this crazy spectacle?\u201d Green said. \u201cWe kind of like to make people smile, though. You can\u2019t see a group of 250 people wearing red dresses running around in the middle of winter and not smile.\u201d

'Generous people with big hearts'

Last year, proceeds from the Red Dress Run raised $13,000 for Ribbons for Kellsey, a non-profit that promotes epilepsy awareness.

\u201cThis year, we want to meet or exceed that,\u201d Green said.

Along with registration fees and other extras, the Hash House Harriers strive to raise money in creative ways\u00a0\u2014 such as the shaving Long\u2019s beard, which will likely happen during a pre-run party on Feb. 15.

\u201cWe were all brainstorming and someone said, \u2018I would pay good money to see his beard shaved off,\u201d Green said. \u201cSo, we just went with that.\u201d

Other members have raised their hands to help raise additional funds, too. One woman said she\u2019ll dye her hair red. Another offered up dyeing her armpit hair. A couple of male runners said they\u2019ll wax their chests.

\u201cThis is a group of very generous people with big hearts,\u201d Green said. \u201cWe like to have fun, but the most important thing to us is raising money for a good cause.\u201d

Like family

If one member of the Quad-City Hash House Harriers needs help moving a couch, training for a race or a last-minute babysitter, another has their back. Over years of running and drinking beers,\u00a0they have become as close as family.

That\u2019s why Long, who said his beard is a signature part of his appearance, committed to shaving his beard ahead of the Red Dress Run.

When he joined the group several years ago, he weighed more than 400 pounds.

He's now lost around 75 pounds and completed feats, such as a 50-mile race, he previously viewed as impossible.

\u201cThat all happened because of the support of people I met through this group,\u201d Long said. \u201cWe\u2019re a big band of weirdos. And we\u2019re always there for each other.\u201d

His bond with other runners is the reason Long shows up to weekly Quad-City Hash House Harriers runs and events.

\u201cIt\u2019s the people that make it,\u201d he said. \u201cIt\u2019s sort of a safe place to be yourself.\u201d

It\u2019s the same reason he\u2019s willing to give up his beard. With less than a month to go, Long said he has accepted his beard will likely soon be shaved off.\u00a0

\u201cIt\u2019s pretty nerve-wrecking,\u201d he said. \u201cBut it\u2019ll be worth it.\u201d

A good Martin Luther King Jr. Day to all. Do you have the day off? If not, carry on, but bundle up. It's a cold one out there this morning.

Here's the latest weather details from the National Weather Service.

1. Cold, wind today; freezing rain, snow Tuesday

Today will be mostly cloudy with a high near 18 degrees and wind-chill values as low as -15 degrees. Southeast winds between 5 to 10 mph will increase to 10 to 15 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 30 mph.

Tonight will be mostly cloudy and breezy with a temperature falling to near 17 degrees by 8 p.m., then rising to around 22 degrees during the remainder of the night. Winds could gust as high as 30 mph.

\"NWS:

2. 'Blood' moon over the Quad-Cities

\"Lunar

This combination photo shows the totally eclipsed moon, center, and others at the different stages during a total lunar eclipse, as seen from Los Angeles, Sunday, Jan. 20, 2019. It was also the year's first supermoon, when a full moon appears a little bigger and brighter thanks to its slightly closer position. During totality, the moon will look red because of sunlight scattering off Earth's atmosphere. That's why an eclipsed moon is sometimes known as a blood moon. In January, the full moon is also sometimes known as the wolf moon or great spirit moon. (AP Photo/Ringo H.W. Chiu)

Did you see the lunar ecilpse? Last night the moon passed into the shadow cast by Earth.\u00a0 Viewers were able to see the full eclipse which entirely covered the moon for an hour and two minutes.

What\u2019s more, the moon made its closest approach to Earth, making it a \u201csupermoon,\u201d meaning it appeared slightly larger in the sky. It was the last total lunar eclipse until May 2021.

3. It's Martin Luther King Jr. Day


Martin Luther King Jr. speaks in the Q-C: Pacem in Terris 1965

Today many schools, businesses and government offices are closed today in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Did you know that King once visited the Quad-Cities? It was back in 1965 for the Pacem in Terris.\u00a0 Listen to his speech.

4. Road work in Davenport

Road sign

Beginning Tuesday the right westbound lane of Kimberly Road will be closed between Thornwood Avenue and Pine Street for Phase 1 of the Silver Creek Streambank Stabilization Project.\u00a0The lane reduction is estimated to last through\u00a0 March 22.\u00a0

5. Davenport weighs future of public transportation

\"012019-qct-qca-transport-005\"

A Davenport CitiBus leaves the ground transportation center in Davenport Jan. 9.

When Davenport\u2019s CitiBus service changed its route map more than two years ago, many riders worried the updated system would leave them out in the cold.

Then the routes changed. And with those changes came a staggering statistic the following year: On paper, there was a 50 percent drop in the number of trips that riders made on CitiBus. But city officials say those year-over-year numbers don\u2019t paint a full picture of what\u2019s happening with Davenport\u2019s public transportation system.

They estimate declines were actually around 15 percent that year, determined by the amount of annual revenue collected in fares.

\u201cWhile we know that there was a drop in ridership, we don\u2019t believe it was as severe as the numbers would indicate because of the reduction in transfers,\u201d said Nicole Gleason, Davenport\u2019s public works director.

Now city officials say CitiBus is making slight gains in ridership, something they attribute to recent investments aimed at making riding easier. But they acknowledge challenges remain to make the service sustainable and gain riders in an age when the use of public transportation is trending the other direction. Read more.

CEDAR RAPIDS \u2014 A gun violence prevention group is launching a digital campaign encouraging Iowans to tell legislators to oppose a constitutional amendment it believes would weaken state gun safety laws.

Giffords, the gun violence prevention group founded by former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Capt. Mark Kelly, launched a digital campaign urging Iowans to stand against the proposal by pointing out to their legislators how this puts Iowa\u2019s gun laws at risk.

According to gun rights supporters in the Iowa Legislature, the proposed amendment simply would add the right to bear arms in the U.S. Constitution\u2019s Second Amendment to the Iowa Constitution. It would say: \u201cThe right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The sovereign state of Iowa affirms and recognizes this right to be a fundamental individual right. Any and all restrictions of this right shall be subject to strict scrutiny.\u201d

In its 30-second online ad, https://youtu.be/duExsXouC8Y Giffords doesn’t address that language. Instead, Nico Bocour, Giffords’ state legislative director, said the intention is to inform and educate voters that legislators are trying to pass “a really dangerous amendment that would undermine Iowa gun laws, make it incredibly difficult and prohibitive to pass new gun laws in the future and we think really goes against what the Iowa public wants.”

Giffords warns that even background checks intended to keep guns out of the hands of felons and domestic abusers could be challenged if the amendment is adopted.

Polling has shown Iowans support background checks, added Charlotte Eby, a lobbyist who represents Giffords at the Iowa Statehouse.

\u201cThis measure could put those in peril and make it easier for a court challenge of smart gun laws\u201d because of the \u201cstrict scrutiny\u201d language, she said.

Giffords calls that a \u201cdangerous and radical policy that would constrain the discretion of Iowa\u2019s legislature to regulate guns and force state judges to apply a legal standard under which laws evaluated are more frequently struck down.\u201d

Iowa lawmakers have approved the amendment twice, as required by law, and the next step was for it to be put on the ballot for voters to approve or reject. But because of an error, it was not published before the November election. Lawmakers will have to restart the process of amending the constitution. That means it won\u2019t be on the ballot before 2022.

\u201cThe amendment has been a priority for over a decade now,\u201d according to Rep. Matt Windschitl, R-Missouri Valley, who led the effort to get the amendment on the ballot. \u201cI believe this is a priority for Iowans. We will continue to do what is right, by Iowans, in giving them the opportunity to have this on the ballot and have their voices heard.\u201d

Bocour acknowledged that the fact the language has been approved may make it more difficult to stop lawmakers from putting it on the ballot, but it also gives advocates for gun safety legislation another opportunity.

Giffords thinks the tide of public opinion is turning. Sixty-seven gun laws were adopted by 26 states and Washington, D.C., last year. She also pointed to NBC exit polling last year that found among Democrats, gun policies ranked as the second most important issue, behind health care and ahead of the economy. Guns were the fourth issue on voters\u2019 minds regardless of party.

\u201cSo the movement and momentum on this issue has been going toward gun safety,\u201d Bocour said. \u201cWe saw the gun lobby\u2019s efforts to pass these extreme and dangerous laws fail in states across the country.\u201d

The November election showed the public is prioritizing gun safety legislation as one of their top voting issues, she said. Several candidates who back \u201csmart\u201d gun legislation were elected by voters \u201cturning out to make their voices heard on this issue.\u201d

Unfortunately, she added, \u201cit does seem that Iowa lawmakers have been listening more to the gun lobby than people who elected them.\u201d

\u201cWe\u2019re hoping that with this additional information \u2026 lawmakers will hear those calls and understand that tide really has turned,\u201d she said.

IOWA CITY \u2014 They\u2019re 16-3. They\u2019ve reeled off five Big Ten victories in 15 days, more than it had all of last season. They likely are inside or near the top 20 when the new rankings come out Monday.

Selection Sunday is two months out, but this Iowa men\u2019s basketball team has positioned itself through Jan. 20 to have its name called come mid-March.

It has experience. It has oodles of offensive firepower. The defense still takes an occasional vacation, but is vastly improved since last year\u2019s 14-19 dumpster fire.

\u201cI wouldn\u2019t want to play them in the postseason,\u201d Illinois coach Brad Underwood said after the Hawkeyes dismantled his team 95-71 Sunday afternoon at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, \u201cbecause of that inside-out mentality and the ability to score in transition.

\u201cI\u2019ve said it many times; I think Iowa is one of the top three teams in our league talent-wise.\u201d

But, just how good is this Iowa team?

It has knocked off the programs in the middle or at the bottom of the Big Ten pecking order \u2014 Nebraska, Northwestern, Ohio State, Illinois and Penn State. The road wins against Northwestern and Penn State were noteworthy with leading scorer Tyler Cook out.

Conversely, in its opportunities against the upper-tier, it has been a disaster. The Hawkeyes were blown out at Michigan State and Purdue \u2014 two of the more difficult venues to play at in the Big Ten.

In the next two weeks, Iowa has two of the conference\u2019s giants coming into its arena \u2014 Michigan State (Thursday) and Michigan (Feb. 1.) \u2014 sandwiched around a road trip to Minnesota.

Iowa can make the Big Dance dropping both of those games, but a split or even possibly two wins changes the entire perception of this group.

Besides a signature win or two on its resume, it gives the thought this team could have staying power in March.

\u201cWe feel like we\u2019re one of those top teams in the Big Ten, but obviously we\u2019ve got to prove that and beat those teams,\u201d freshman Joe Wieskamp said following a 24-point performance where he didn\u2019t miss a shot in eight attempts. \u201cIt starts with Michigan State on Thursday.\u201d

Wieskamp remembers the film session the day after Iowa was humbled 90-68 in East Lansing on Dec. 3.

\u201cIt was not fun,\u201d he said. \u201cWe had a lot of mistakes in that game. We\u2019re really going to lock into them, really get focused and get after them on Thursday.\u201d

There has been a lot to like about this Iowa team.

Cook is an athletic freak and has shown he can take over games. Luka Garza, out for much of the preseason with a nine-pound cyst in his spleen, has evolved into a consistent low-post presence.

Isaiah Moss has turned a corner in his development on both ends of the court. Jordan Bohannon has proved his worth with late-game heroics against Nebraska and Penn State.

Nicholas Baer, Connor McCaffery and Ryan Kriener have had moments of brilliance off the bench. Even Maishe Dailey has brought energy on the defensive end of the floor in spurts.

And Wieskamp, who has reached double figures in nine of the last 10 games, is making a case as one of the four or five best freshmen in the conference.

You are seeing a team that is connected, more mature and has more resolve.

Iowa has won with offense, evident by the 89 points it scored at Penn State. Or the arena-record 68 percent it shot Sunday where it made 15 of 21 shots from beyond the arc and had 29 assists on 34 baskets.

It has played well on defense at times, too.

It stymied Ohio State to 26 first-half points. It limited Illinois, coming off a 95-point performance against Minnesota, to 24 points in the first half.

\"We were really locked in and we were grinding hard,\" coach Fran McCaffery said.

We didn't see that very often last season.

\u201cThere were too many instances last year where a team would go on a 15-4 run and that\u2019d be game,\u201d Garza said. \u201cThis year, we\u2019re finding a way to stand back up and throw our punch.

\u201cWe\u2019re communicating a lot better. We just have a lot better mindset, a more positive mindset. We\u2019re not hanging our heads.\u201d

They\u2019ve been dropped to the canvas a couple times this year. On the scoreboard. And with injuries.

Each time, it has mustered a response. That's a sign of growth.

\u201cI\u2019m not sure if it is a maturity thing, but we never get too down,\u201d Connor McCaffery said. \u201cIt is never we\u2019ve got to bounce back from this. We don\u2019t want to be too high right now or don\u2019t want to get too low.

\u201cWe just need to keep fighting, keep playing. That\u2019s what we\u2019re doing.\u201d

So far, the resume looks good.

If it can add a win or two over Michigan State and Michigan, it would look even rosier.

IOWA CITY \u2014 Illinois coach Brad Underwood normally doesn\u2019t go out to watch pregame warmups but he had heard about this Joe Wieskamp kid who played for Iowa so he decided to sneak a peek Sunday.

\u201cI heard he was a great shooter and I\u2019m fascinated with guys who can put the ball in the basket,\u2019\u2019 Underwood explained. \u201cI watched him make 19 in a row and none of them even hit the rim. I said \u2018I\u2019m going to make myself sick\u2019 so I stopped.\u2019\u2019

Nothing that happened during the ensuing two hours made him feel any better.

Wieskamp didn\u2019t miss a shot in the game and matched a career high with 24 points as he and his teammates set all sorts of offensive milestones on the way to extending their winning streak to five games with a 95-71 rout of Underwood\u2019s Illini at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

The 23rd-ranked Hawkeyes broke an arena record by shooting 68 percent from the field. They had 29 assists on 34 made baskets. Two different players had career highs in assists. They had three players top the 20-point mark as Isaiah Moss tossed in 21 points and Luka Garza added 20.

They shot 71.4 percent (15 for 21) from 3-point range and would have broken the school record had they not missed their last two attempts. As it is, it was the Hawkeyes\u2019 best 3-point percentage in a game in 21 years.

\u201cThat\u2019s being taken out behind the woodshed and getting whupped,\u2019\u2019 Underwood said.

\u201cI\u2019ve said all along that I thought Iowa was one of the top three teams in the league talent-wise. They\u2019re experienced and a veteran team. Wieskamp \u2026 everybody knows how good a player he was in the high school ranks and he obviously has made the adjustment at a very high level.\u2019\u2019

The Muscatine freshman ended up making 8 of 8 shots from the field with six of them being 3-pointers. He even was seen to crack a rare smile or two as the game progressed.

\u201cIt was a lot of fun,\u2019\u2019 Wieskamp admitted. \u201cWhen the crowd\u2019s getting into it, you can just feel that energy.\u2019\u2019

In a game filled with offensive superlatives, the Hawkeyes (16-3, 5-3 Big Ten) really took control of the game early with some suffocating defense.

It was especially good during a 12-0 scoring run in which Illinois missed 11 consecutive shots and mixed in four turnovers. That allowed the Hawkeyes to open an 18-6 lead.

Another 8-0 run that was helped by a flagrant foul on Kipper Nichols pushed the margin to 15 and the Hawkeyes finished the half with a flourish when Connor McCaffery\u2019s cross-court pass set up Moss for a corner 3 at the horn to make it 39-24.

\u201cThat first half was as bad as we\u2019ve executed in a long time,\u2019\u2019 Underwood said.

Iowa coach Fran McCaffery described the Hawkeyes\u2019 first-half defense as \u201cspectacular.

\u201cWe were locked in and grinding hard,\u2019\u2019 he said. \u201cWe put a lot of attention on stopping them in transition \u2026 We got back and walled off.\u2019\u2019

The Hawkeyes didn\u2019t defend quite as well after halftime but they didn\u2019t need to because the offensive assault only intensified. They made six straight 3s over a span of little more than three minutes to further widen the lead.

Moss, who had three 3-pointers in that stretch, said he\u2019d never been a part of a binge like that, even back in high school or the AAU ranks.

\u201cAnd it made it so much better being in Carver with the fans,\u2019\u2019 Moss said. \u201cThey riled us up. That was so much fun.\u2019\u2019

Wieskamp said it reminded him of the night he scored 54 points against Bettendorf last season.

\u201cYou just kind of get into one of those zones where you feel like every shot\u2019s going in,\u2019\u2019 he said.

\u201cI\u2019ve been struggling shooting a little bit the past couple of games so I just tried to come out and be efficient,\u2019\u2019 he added. \u201cWhen that first shot went down, I got a lot of confidence. Guys were finding me open shots, got me going early and it kept going throughout the game.\u2019\u2019

Leading scorer Tyler Cook returned to action for the Hawkeyes after missing a game with a sprained ankle and he said he felt as though he was able to just ease back into things. He only attempted two shots.

\u201cI didn\u2019t have to do much, just run up and down the floor \u2026\u2019\u2019 Cook said. \u201cIt was a lot of fun. I can just run up and down the floor and get some cardio in, just let those guys do what they do.\u2019\u2019

Illinois (5-13, 1-6 Big Ten) was coming off its first Big Ten win, a 95-68 thrashing of Minnesota on Wednesday, but it never recovered from a first half in which it shot only 28.6 percent from the field.

Ayo Dosunmu led the Illini with 15 points and six assists but almost all of that came in the second half after the outcome had been decided. Trent Frazier netted 12 points in the first half but never scored again, finishing just 4 for 18 from the field.

MELBOURNE, Australia \u2014 For a quarter of an hour, Elina Svitolina served and served, and served again, tossing the ball into the sun, in a desperate bid to hold a game in the third set against Rock Island native Madison Keys.

The sixth-seeded Svitolina fended off five break points in game that went to deuce 11 times, contained 28 points, and was pivotal in a momentum-swinging 6-2, 1-6, 6-1 win that earned her a place in the Australian Open quarterfinals.

At her first opportunity in the next game she broke the 17th-seeded Keys, runner-up at the 2017 U.S. Open and a semifinalist or better at three of the last five majors. It was all one-way from then on.

\"I was happy I could handle the pressure at 1-1 in the third set,\" Svitolina said. \"It was very hard because the sun was just burning my eyes when I was tossing the ball. Very happy I could win that game.\"

Svitolina is trying to emulate what Caroline Wozniacki did here last year \u2014 coming to the season-opening major as winner of the season-ending WTA Finals and winning a breakthrough major title.

She's 0-3 in Grand Slam quarterfinals to date, and next plays either U.S. Open champion Naomi Osaka or No. 13 Anastasija Sevastova.

Apart from the second set, Keys didn't quite find her range with her ground strokes and 34 unforced errors.

She dropped her first two service games in the match, and she missed very narrowly on some crucial points and wasn't really able to break down Svitolina, particularly in that game that lasted more than 15 minutes.

Both players reached the quarterfinals here last year, but Keys had more success at the majors in 2018 when she progressed to the semifinals at the French and U.S. Opens.

Elsewhere in the tournament, U.S. Open champion Naomi Osaka is into her second Grand Slam quarterfinal after another comeback win at the Australian Open, this time over Anastasija Sevastova.

Osaka had to work for nearly two hours on Rod Laver Arena to subdue the gritty Sevastova 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 in a fourth-round match studded by service breaks. She'll next play sixth-seeded Elina Svitolina, who had a 6-2, 1-6, 6-1 win over 2017 U.S. Open finalist Madison Keys.

Osaka won a tight three-setter when she met Sevastova at the Brisbane International in the first week of the season.

Sevastova grabbed the lead in the opening set on Monday, and clinched it with a deft drop shot that forced Osaka to fly a forehand over the baseline.

Osaka had to stave off two break points in the third game of the second to edge ahead.

The fourth-seeded Osaka grew in confidence from the narrow escape and lifted her tempo and shot-making consistency, grabbing the crucial service break in the sixth game.

Serving to level the match, Osaka fended off a break-back point with a brilliant forehand volley after a long, tense baseline rally. Two points later, the match was heading into the deciding set.

Osaka broke serve to open third set to maintain the momentum.

Sloane Stephens' best Australian Open in five years has ended with a 6-7 (3), 6-3, 6-3 loss to unseeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the fourth round that lasted 2\u00bd hours and finished at nearly 2 a.m.

The fifth-seeded Stephens was the 2017 U.S. Open champion and 2018 French Open runner-up, but she hadn't won a match at Melbourne Park since 2014, when she also lost in the fourth round.

Roger Federer's bid for a third consecutive Australian Open title ended in a surprising 6-7 (11), 7-6 (3), 7-5, 7-6 (5) loss to 20-year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas, the first player from Greece to reach a Grand Slam quarterfinal.

The key stat Sunday night: Federer failed to convert any of the 12 break points he earned. Tsitsipas went 1 for 3 in that category, getting his only break in the last game of the third set.

At 37, Federer was the oldest man left in the field. Tsitsipas is the youngest.

This one was a thriller from beginning to end, both in terms of the high quality and entertaining style of play from both men \u2014 long expected of Federer; the world is still learning what Tsitsipas can do.

Second-seeded Rafael Nadal swept to his 20th victory in 24 attempts over Tomas Berdych with a 6-0, 6-1, 7-6 (4) win to advance to the Australian Open quarterfinals.

Frances Tiafoe celebrated his 21st birthday in style with a 7-5 7-6 (6), 6-7 (1), 7-5 win over No. 20-seeded Grigor Dimitrov to advance to his first Grand Slam quarterfinal.

Tiafoe, who received treatment on his right forearm at the end of the third set, broke Dimitrov's serve in the 11th game of the fourth then held serve to end the 3-hour, 39-minute match.

It seemed football fans everywhere were suddenly on the Chiefs' bandwagon, enthralled by Kansas City's record-setting young quarterback and exciting playmakers and hopeful the amiable coach can finally win the big one.

The New England Patriots took an early lead over the Chiefs and then prevailed\u00a0in an unprecedented second overtime NFL championship to win the AFC championship game 37-31, their offensive and defensive lines manhandling Kansas City on a crisp, cold night.

RAMS PREVAIL

A big comeback. A blown call. And, finally, a booming kick that sent the Los Angeles Rams to the Super Bowl. After rallying from an early 13-0 deficit, the Rams stunned the New Orleans Saints with Greg Zuerlein's 57-yard field goal in overtime for a 26-23 victory in the NFC championship game Sunday \u2014 an outcome that might not have been possible without an egregious mistake by the officials in the closing minutes of regulation.

ROCK ISLAND \u2014 The visitors wandered the rows Sunday \u2014 not rows of corn or soybeans, but of booths \u2014 seeing what was on offer by the vendors at the Quad Cities Farm Equipment Show.

Now in its 28th year, the show annually puts agricultural companies together in the QCCA Expo Center with the farmers who need them. The QCCA website states about 200 vendors were scheduled to appear at this year\u2019s show, and on Sunday, their booths filled much of the center. Much of the rest of the building was filled by visitors, both shoppers and enthusiasts.

\u201cThe entire New Holland equipment line,\u201d Rob Spengler, of Cove Equipment in Moscow, Iowa, said of what Cove sells. A hulking blue tractor representative of that line loomed nearby. That particular model, new, costs about $460,000 and might last 30 or 40 years, he said.

Cove also sells grain carts and planters made by Kinze and KuhnKrause tilling equipment, among other things, Spengler said.

This is Cove\u2019s second year at the show, he said. Being there is less about selling things on the floor than it is making sure Cove\u2019s potential buyers in Illinois and Iowa \u2014 what Spengler described as Cove\u2019s base \u2014 know the company.

\u201cGetting the name out there,\u201d he said.

Machines dominated the floor, from elephant-sized combines and tractors destined for fields to smaller motorized riding mowers and tractors better suited to small-scale gardening and landscaping. Deere & Company models in green and yellow were there, as were blue New Hollands, red Case IH models, yellow Vermeers and many more.

Comparing some of theses machines to elephants is not an exaggeration. A Case combine towered above visitors, its tires so big a teen was able to sit in the wheel hub and only bend his torso and head a little to fit inside. There were also smaller vehicles on display, including runabouts like Gators, car-sized excavators, and bulldozers.

Other machines probably looked familiar to people who work in agriculture, but to the uninitiated, they were less comprehensible\u2014 a confusion of spokes, spikes, hoses or claws.

It was not all about machinery. There were a series of tables overflowing with handheld tools that would be recognizable in anyone\u2019s toolbox, as well as shovels and brooms. There were bank representatives and sellers of seeds.

Show attendee Rob DeFauw, 34, Geneseo, grows corn and soybeans and has been doing so for about five years.

DeFauw said it was his first time at the show, though he has been to similar shows in Peoria and Decatur. He did not have a particular purchase in mind, but he was paying attention to the vendors.

Attending was also helping his family deal with cabin fever, he said. Moments before, he\u2019d been helping his children into the massive red Case vehicles.

He said the show offered lots of vendors and lots of opportunities to talk to people and get answers to questions.

Dan Friedman, of Friedman Distributing, had items for farms that deal in livestock. His wares included hay feeders, metal chutes for controlling an animal\u2019s movement, and even a small chamber for keeping a newborn calf warm until it could get up and moving.

\u201cWe do sell some hog stuff, but mostly cattle,\u201d Friedman said.

His business serves Iowa, Illinois and a handful of other states in whole or in part, Friedman said. It largely serves other vendors, who in turn sell to farms, but it also does direct sales.

Like Spengler, Friedman said attending was largely about recognition: letting potential buyers see his wares and know his business is out there. Friedman Distributing, based in Belle Plaine, Iowa, visits about 40 such shows a year.

Hundreds of potential customers of all ages were present, speaking with exhibitors, inspecting the machinery and other goods, or clambering about on them. More than one cab had a child in it, handling the controls or exploring the consoles.

Earl Wear, 86, Moline, grew up on a farm, though he became a teacher not a farmer. He, however, still attends the farm equipment show. This year, he and his wife, Cathy, were exploring.

Wear, now retired, said the items displayed Sunday were a far cry from what he was used to as a boy. He had not seen one wheelbarrow at the show.

\u201cI like to see what\u2019s here that I didn\u2019t have when I was a kid,\u201d Wear said.

\u201cWhich is just about everything,\u201d his wife added.

ROCK ISLAND \u2014 The visitors wandered the rows Sunday \u2014 not rows of corn or soybeans, but of booths \u2014 seeing what was on offer by the vendors at the Quad Cities Farm Equipment Show.

Now in its 28th year, the show annually puts agricultural companies together in the QCCA Expo Center with the farmers who need them. The QCCA website states about 200 vendors were scheduled to appear at this year\u2019s show, and on Sunday, their booths filled much of the center. Much of the rest of the building was filled by visitors, both shoppers and enthusiasts.

\u201cThe entire New Holland equipment line,\u201d Rob Spengler, of Cove Equipment in Moscow, Iowa, said of what Cove sells. A hulking blue tractor representative of that line loomed nearby. That particular model, new, costs about $460,000 and might last 30 or 40 years, he said.

Cove also sells grain carts and planters made by Kinze and KuhnKrause tilling equipment, among other things, Spengler said.

This is Cove\u2019s second year at the show, he said. Being there is less about selling things on the floor than it is making sure Cove\u2019s potential buyers in Illinois and Iowa \u2014 what Spengler described as Cove\u2019s base \u2014 know the company.

\u201cGetting the name out there,\u201d he said.

Machines dominated the floor, from elephant-sized combines and tractors destined for fields to smaller motorized riding mowers and tractors better suited to small-scale gardening and landscaping. Deere & Company models in green and yellow were there, as were blue New Hollands, red Case IH models, yellow Vermeers and many more.

Comparing some of theses machines to elephants is not an exaggeration. A Case combine towered above visitors, its tires so big a teen was able to sit in the wheel hub and only bend his torso and head a little to fit inside. There were also smaller vehicles on display, including runabouts like Gators, car-sized excavators, and bulldozers.

Other machines probably looked familiar to people who work in agriculture, but to the uninitiated, they were less comprehensible\u2014 a confusion of spokes, spikes, hoses or claws.

It was not all about machinery. There were a series of tables overflowing with handheld tools that would be recognizable in anyone\u2019s toolbox, as well as shovels and brooms. There were bank representatives and sellers of seeds.

Show attendee Rob DeFauw, 34, Geneseo, grows corn and soybeans and has been doing so for about five years.

DeFauw said it was his first time at the show, though he has been to similar shows in Peoria and Decatur. He did not have a particular purchase in mind, but he was paying attention to the vendors.

Attending was also helping his family deal with cabin fever, he said. Moments before, he\u2019d been helping his children into the massive red Case vehicles.

He said the show offered lots of vendors and lots of opportunities to talk to people and get answers to questions.

Dan Friedman, of Friedman Distributing, had items for farms that deal in livestock. His wares included hay feeders, metal chutes for controlling an animal\u2019s movement, and even a small chamber for keeping a newborn calf warm until it could get up and moving.

\u201cWe do sell some hog stuff, but mostly cattle,\u201d Friedman said.

His business serves Iowa, Illinois and a handful of other states in whole or in part, Friedman said. It largely serves other vendors, who in turn sell to farms, but it also does direct sales.

Like Spengler, Friedman said attending was largely about recognition: letting potential buyers see his wares and know his business is out there. Friedman Distributing, based in Belle Plaine, Iowa, visits about 40 such shows a year.

Hundreds of potential customers of all ages were present, speaking with exhibitors, inspecting the machinery and other goods, or clambering about on them. More than one cab had a child in it, handling the controls or exploring the consoles.

Earl Wear, 86, Moline, grew up on a farm, though he became a teacher not a farmer. He, however, still attends the farm equipment show. This year, he and his wife, Cathy, were exploring.

Wear, now retired, said the items displayed Sunday were a far cry from what he was used to as a boy. He had not seen one wheelbarrow at the show.

\u201cI like to see what\u2019s here that I didn\u2019t have when I was a kid,\u201d Wear said.

\u201cWhich is just about everything,\u201d his wife added.

After-thoughts from Iowa\u2019s 95-71 victory over Illinois:

--The Hawkeyes\u2019 final field goal percentage of 68 percent is the second best in school history, the best ever in Carver-Hawkeye Arena and a school record for a Big Ten game. The only better effort was a 69.6-percent night against Northeastern in the championship game of the 1986 Great Alaska Shootout. That would have been the third game the Hawkeyes played under Dr. Tom Davis.

--A few other things to put their Sunday shooting display into sharper perspective: The Hawkeyes only had one more missed shot (16) than they did turnovers (15). They never at any point in the game missed more than two shots in a row. They missed only six shots in the first half. They made 12 of their first 14 3-point attempts and would have tied the school record of 75 percent in that category if not for a miss in the final minute by walk-on Austin Ash. Their four primary 3-point shooters who account for a majority of their long-range attempts (Jordan Bohannon, Joe Wieskamp, Isaiah Moss and Nicholas Baer) were a combined 15 for 17.

--Tyler Cook appeared to be a little rusty in his return to action after missing a game with a sprained ankle, but he seemed to be running, cutting and jumping well. It\u2019s doubtful Fran McCaffery would have played him 29 minutes in a lopsided game if he wasn\u2019t healthy. Cook only attempted two shots but still collected seven points and seven rebounds. He also turned the ball over five times, pushing his team lead to 56.

--It goes without saying that this was the best game of Joe Wieskamp\u2019s brief college career. It\u2019s hard to remember ever seeing any player at any level score 24 points in a game in which he attempted only eight shots. The kid also had five rebounds and three assists, and should have a really good shot at being this week\u2019s Big Ten freshman of the week.

--As good as Wieskamp was, Isaiah Moss nearly matched him. He didn\u2019t even score until there was two minutes left in the first half but he then scored 17 points over the next seven minutes of game action and finished with 21. While Wieskamp was 6 for 6 on 3-point shots, Moss was 5 for 6. He also matched his career high in assists with six and played a major role in limiting Illinois\u2019 potent guards at the defensive end.

--Forgive us for not being all that impressed with Illini freshman Ayo Dosunmu, who arrived as a highly-hyped five-star recruit. Almost all of his game-high 15 points came in garbage time. He doesn\u2019t look lightning quick and he was 1 for 6 from 3-point range. His backcourt mate, sophomore Trent Frazier, scored all of his points in the first half when it was still a competitive game and kept the Illini alive for awhile by scoring 12 of their first 15 points.

--Iowa center Luka Garza has become an Illini killer. He had 39 points and 19 rebounds in two games against them last season and tossed in another 20 Sunday. Illinois\u2019 focus on double-teaming the 6-foot-11 sophomore in the paint contributed to the Hawkeyes getting so many open looks from the perimeter and he still managed to get 20 on them. After the game, Illini coach Brad Underwood likened Garza to former NBA star Jack Sikma in that \u201che\u2019s a guy with a million moves.\u2019\u2019

--About the only thing the Hawkeyes did not do well Sunday was to keep the Illini off the offensive boards. The visitors actually got more offensive rebounds (17) than defensive rebounds (13). The 17 offensive boards matched a season high against Iowa this season. Alabama State also did it. Iowa only had three offensive rebounds but then again it\u2019s hard to get too many when you only miss 16 shots.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. \u2013 Winning for the third time in seven days, the pieces are falling into place for the Iowa women\u2019s basketball team.

The 22nd-ranked Hawkeyes routed Illinois 94-75 on Sunday, using a blend of 62-percent shooting, a 38-21 edge on the boards, a 50-percent touch from 3-point range and a selfless collection of 24 assists on 39 field goals to earn the road win.

\u201cIt was the kind of game where if you\u2019re an opposing coach watching on tape, you\u2019re pulling your hair out because we\u2019re doing a lot of things well right now,\u2019\u2019 Iowa coach Lisa Bluder said during her Learfield Sports postgame radio interview.

\u201cThis has been a big week for us, winning three games in seven days, two on the road and the start of (spring semester) classes. I\u2019m proud of the way we handled it.\u2019\u2019

Bluder particularly liked the way the Hawkeyes finished off the Fighting Illini in a game that started as a shootout.

\u201cIn all three of our games this week, we\u2019ve played well in the third and fourth quarters,\u2019\u2019 Bluder said. \u201cI like the way we\u2019re closing out games.\u2019\u2019

Iowa needed to after leading by just 10 points despite scoring 31 in the first quarter.

The Hawkeyes maintained that margin at the break as well, scorching the nets at a 71.2-percent clip through two quarters on its way to a 55-45 lead at the State Farm Center.

Led by an 8-for-8 start from the field by Megan Gustafson, the Hawkeyes knocked down 23 of the 32 shots they took during a half which saw Iowa riddle the Fighting Illini both inside and out.

Tania Davis, Kathleen Doyle and Makenzie Meyer each dropped in a pair of 3-point baskets during a half which saw Iowa combine for an 8-of-14 start from behind the arc.

By that point, Gustafson had already hit the first 3-point basket of her collegiate career, a buzzer-beating effort that was part of a 27-point, 12-rebound performance which led a group of four Hawkeyes in double figures.

\u201dWe\u2019re on a roll right now, playing good basketball,\u2019\u2019 Gustafson said. \u201cOur offense is on fire and in the second half, we buckled down on defense.\u2019\u2019

The Fighting Illini pulled within 61-56 on a Brandi Beasley jumper with 6:18 remaining in the third quarter, but a 3-pointer by Davis fueled a run of seven unanswered points that left the Hawkeyes in control.

Jumpers by Hannah Stewart and Gustafson allowed Iowa to regain a 68-56 advantage with 4:48 left in the quarter and Illinois came no closer than eight points the rest of the game.

In addition to Gustafson collecting her 17th double-double of the season, Davis finished with 19 points, Doyle added 17 and Stewart had 13 for the Hawkeyes (14-4, 5-2 Big Ten).

Beasley finished with a team-leading 21 points and Alex Wittinger scored 14 of her 20 in the first half for the Fighting Illini (9-9, 1-6).

Bluder pointed to the way Iowa defended Wittinger in the second half as an example of the focus she has seen from her team in making second-half adjustments during wins in the past week.

\u201cIt\u2019s been a good week for us to build on,\u2019\u2019 said Bluder, whose team now sits two games behind Big Ten-leading Rutgers in the conference standings.

The teams meet for the only time during the regular season on Wednesday when the Scarlet Knights (15-3, 7-0) visit Carver-Hawkeye Arena at 7 p.m.

Art pottery comes to Figge

Distinctive art pottery created in the Art Nouveau style by Amphora, an Austrian manufacturer, is on display through June 16 at the Figge Art Museum, Davenport.

Art Nouveau or the \u201cnew Art\u201d is a style that emerged in the late 19th century and is recognized for the use of curvilinear forms inspired by nature and a focus on beauty, according to a news release. Art Nouveau influenced art, architecture, illustration and decorative arts.

Amphora started as Riessner, Stellmacher and Kessel (RSt&K) in Turn-Teplitz, Austria (now the Czech Republic), producing distinctive art pottery. Its elaborate creations often were finished with striking glazes and gold accents. Some artisans sculpted mythical beasts, while others decorated vessels with images of beautiful women.

A genetic condition may severely impair her eyesight, but it has done little to impact the vision Grace Johanns has for herself and her future.

The freshman on the St. Ambrose women\u2019s swimming team shares the same goals as her teammates, hoping to one day qualify for the NAIA national championships.

She wants to continue to entertain as she plays the flute in the university\u2019s symphonic band while working toward a degree in elementary special education.

She has a career objective of teaching and coaching young children who live with the same types of vision impairment she has lived with throughout her life.

\"You can do whatever you put your mind to,\" Johanns said. \"It\u2019s about your abilities, what you can do and not what you are not capable of accomplishing.\"

That mindset and spirit guides Johanns on a daily basis and provides inspiration for those around her at the onset of her career as a student-athlete at the college level.

\"This is something that I\u2019ve always dreamed about doing, competing in college,\" Johanns said.

She welcomed the chance to bond with teammates during a recent weeklong training trip to Phoenix.

\"It's great to be a part of a team and work together to do big things. We had a lot of fun and had a chance to get in a lot of work on our trip to Arizona,\" Johanns said. \"It\u2019s not easy. It isn\u2019t easy for anyone on our team, the hours everybody trains and putting what we have into the sport as well as staying on top of our academics. It\u2019s a lot of work.\"

That work is paying dividends for Johanns, part of a second-year St. Ambrose swimming program that has quickly become one of the best in the NAIA.

The Bees\u2019 women\u2019s team is currently ranked 10th in the country, and the men\u2019s team is rated eighth. They practice and compete in the pool at Davenport Central High School.

\"It\u2019s been a great experience. I\u2019m swimming the best times I\u2019ve ever had in every event, and in the short time I\u2019ve been here, I\u2019ve learned so much,\" Johanns said.

She arrived at St. Ambrose as a sprinter, competing in shorter 50- and 100-yard freestyle races for Burlington High School over the past three seasons, but Johanns now finds herself adjusting to swimming in distance races at the collegiate level.

\"It\u2019s a totally different deal, but I\u2019m catching on,\" Johanns said. \"I\u2019ve competed in the 1,000 freestyle and in the mile, things I never thought I would do.\"

St. Ambrose coach Rob Miecznikowski believes Johanns is just beginning to achieve what she can ultimately accomplish in the sport.

\"Qualifying for the NAIA Championships at some point down the road is a reasonable goal, certainly something I believe she can do,\" Miecznikowski said. \"If she can drop 28 seconds off of her time in the 500 freestyle by the end of the season \u2014 an obtainable goal \u2014 that leaves her 10 seconds away from a qualifying time heading into next season. It\u2019s a real possibility.\"

Not unlike her teammates, turning that potential into reality centers on the development and growth of her skills.

Unlike her teammates, that growth is rooted in improvement in areas that have always been a challenge for Johanns because of the ocular albinism she was born with that creates vision impairments.

The genetic condition reduces the pigmentation of the iris and the retina, leaving her with a severely impaired sharpness of vision in both eyes, which also limits her depth perception.

Johanns, who underwent surgery as a youth, said she has 20/80 or 20/90 vision. Glasses help improve that to 20/50 or 20/60.

Large-print textbooks and a front-row seat in classrooms help her with academics. She lives in a first-floor dormitory room at St. Ambrose, and with an off-campus pool, she relies on catching a ride with teammates to get to and from practice or wherever she needs to go in the Quad-Cities.

\"I\u2019ve always looked at it as being fortunate that I have the vision that I have, that I can see as well as I can,\" Johanns said. \"Other people don\u2019t have it as good as I do.\"

Born in Waterloo, Johanns lived in Muscatine from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade.

Like most kids that age, she tried her hand at a lot of sports.

She played soccer and T-ball, sampled basketball, volleyball and tennis and even ran track, but with her lack of depth perception, the results were predictable.

\"It wasn\u2019t pretty,\" Johanns said.

Her parents, Tom and Andrea Johanns, suggested that swimming might be an option, and her first competitive experience in the sport took place with the program at the Muscatine YMCA.

The family moved to Cedar Falls after Johanns completed fifth grade but returned to Muscatine two years later.

She attended Central Middle School, swimming there and with the YMCA program before eventually joining the program at Muscatine High School as a freshman.

Johanns competed her final three years of high school at Burlington, and her passion for the sport grew with each passing year.

\"I found that swimming was something I could do reasonably well,\" Johanns said. \"I had great coaches growing up and learned so much and had so much fun in high school with Judd Anderson in Muscatine and the last three years in Burlington with Jeff Kristensen.\"

That fueled Johanns\u2019 desire to continue to compete in college.

Her sister, Emma, is a sophomore on the women\u2019s tennis team at Monmouth College, and like her sister, she wanted to attend a smaller school.

\"I probably visited 10, 12 private schools in Iowa, but St. Ambrose was the first one I visited, and I kept coming back to it when I was deciding,\" Johanns said. \"It was the place I wanted to be. I felt comfortable here.\"

Miecznikowski welcomed her to the Bees\u2019 swimming program.

\"We\u2019re a young, growing program, and we\u2019re building our roster with competitors from Iowa and Illinois,\" Miecznikowski said. \"Grace was very upfront about her visual impairments, and to me, it was no big deal. I\u2019ve been coaching 32 years now, and over that time, I\u2019ve worked with a lot of kids dealing with all sorts of challenges.\"

With her lack of depth perception, Johanns closes her eyes at the start of races, relying on sound instead of vision to determine when to start.

Depth perception impacts her ability to gauge the distance to the wall as she races, so Johanns is able to rely on seeing the painted \"T\" on the bottom of every pool to guide her as she makes turns and finishes races.

\"The biggest thing is gauging the distance to the wall. The \u2018T\u2019 helps me there. Right now, I\u2019m working to adjust my strokes before I make the turn or touch the wall. That\u2019s a part of what I\u2019m learning,\" Johanns said.

Miecznikowski is also working with her focus on keeping her head down.

\"In her first practice, I noticed she had a real tendency to have her head up, but she will help herself by keeping it down, keeping it focused on that \u2018T\u2019 that\u2019s always going to be there, always going to be the same distance from the wall,\" Miecznikowski said. \"She\u2019s getting it down.\"

With longer races now than she was used to at the high-school level, Johanns has more chances to work on and improve her turns.

\"As they get better, her times will get better,\" Miecznikowski said. \"There\u2019s a big upside there.\"

Johanns, who is also learning how to stretch her pace out over the longer distances she now swims, appreciates that.

She welcomes the chance to celebrate the progress and improvement.

That motivation carries over to other aspects of what Johanns is about.

Growing up, she attended Camp Abilities, organized by the former Iowa Braille and Sight Saving School, and eventually throughout junior high and high school she swam on teams organized by what is now known as Iowa Educational Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired.

Those teams competed against teams from the schools for the visually impaired from other states in the region, providing Johanns with additional competitive experience.

In high school, Johanns returned to Camp Abilities to work with younger youths dealing with the same visual challenges she has.

It provided her with a hands-on opportunity to make a difference, something which led Johanns to decide to pursue her present career objectives.

\"To see those kids do something they\u2019ve never done before, to encourage them to try something new and to watch them ultimately have success, that\u2019s a great feeling,\" Johanns said. \"It let me know, too, that I want to teach. I hope to someday be a TVI (teacher of students with visual impairments) and teach and coach and help kids the way I\u2019ve been helped over the years.\"

Miecznikowski said Johanns\u2019 willingness to work, her determination and the way she is approaching her newest challenges as a distance swimmer provide inspiration.

\"Every day,\" Miecznikowski said, \"she\u2019s teaching us as much as we\u2019re teaching her.\"
