Since Dane and Sarah Moulton purchased the historic Renwick Mansion in Davenport, they have opened it up to comedy shows, rock concerts, ghost-hunting expeditions and costume parties. 

When Dane Moulton used to ride his bike up and down Tremont Avenue in Davenport as a kid, he always made sure to sneak a glance at the mansion towering over the hillside. 

He’d think to himself, “I wonder what’s going on in there?”

For Moulton, who grew up less than 1-mile away from the Renwick Mansion, there was plenty of mystery surrounding the property built in 1877 by lumber baron William Renwick.

“I’ve always been fascinated by it,” he said. “There’s nothing else like it.”

Moulton eventually got to see inside the historic mansion when he attended family weddings there. He never imagined, though, that he’d one day hold its keys.

5. Q-C Sports Hall of Fame: 'Longshot' Lingner was an elite long snapper

Adam Lingner became the first Alleman athlete to place in a field event at the state track meet when he finished eighth in the shot put in 1979.

Adam Lingner kind of figures his entire athletic career was a longshot.

He received one of the last available football scholarships at the University of Illinois in 1979. He was selected in the ninth round of the 1983 NFL draft. The draft doesn’t even have that many rounds anymore.

And yet, the former Rock Island Alleman multi-sport star somehow ended up spending 13 years in the NFL and playing in four consecutive Super Bowls as a member of the Buffalo Bills.

It all happened because Lingner was astonishingly accurate at rifling a football backward between his legs. Read more.

6. Man seriously wounded in East Moline shooting

A 24-year-old man suffered serious gunshot wounds early Sunday, East Moline Police Lt. Darren Gault said.

While investigating officers learned the shooting occurred in a parking lot on the south side of 1300 block of 13th Avenue where officers located shell casings.

Police are seeking help in identifying witnesses to the shooting.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the East Moline Police Department at 309-752-1546 or Crime Stoppers of the Quad-Cities at 309-762-9500, or use the smartphone app P3 Tips.

6 PLUS 1. ICYMI: The best view on the water

042218-QCT-QCA-BIGSTORYCELEBRATION-024

A system of barges are seen on the Mississippi River for the Interstate 74 bridge project from aboard the Celebration Belle in Bettendorf.

It was our Big Story from Sunday: The largest passenger boat on the Upper Mississippi River — Moline's Celebration Belle — has a new calling. As the vessel heads downstream from its home port for the first cruises of the season, passengers are getting something many didn't expect: They find themselves smack in the middle, literally, of a billion-dollar spectacle on the water.

Beginning on the Bettendorf and Moline shorelines, miniature cities made of platforms, cranes, portable toilets, shipping containers, cement trucks and workers press inward toward the channel. But they have to keep the passageway clear so boats and barges can use the river, too.

As the pleasure-boating season approaches, many Quad-Citians soon will get their chance to see for themselves what's been going on in the water. And, just like the people driving cars and trucks in construction zones on land, boat pilots are likely to encounter an obstacle or two that tries their patience. Read more.
