Is there a more fitting song for our tense, troubled times than “Together”, by the contemporary Christian act For King and Country ?

Dance students from Sudlow Junior High School in Davenport and the Creative Arts Academy of the Quad Cities recently did an interpretive dance to the song, and made it into an inspiring video for the Time Capsule of Hope project. The video premiered Monday, Jan. 11 on Paula Sands Live on KWQC.

The Lumberkings have joined the Prospect League, a collegiate, wood bat, summer league.

The Eastern Iowa Community Colleges want to help the state train the workers it'll need for the future. So last week, the board of trustees approved a 40 million dollar bond referendum for the ballot in March (3/2).

Chancellor Don Doucette says the money will pay for new and expanded facilities in Clinton, Jackson, Muscatine, and Scott counties - to offer training in everything from robotics and welding, to agriculture and nursing.

This is Roald Tweet on Rock Island.

Ed Lamp is 97 years old. He still lives by himself in one of a cluster of small homes and cottages along the Rock River, a mile or so from where the Rock empties into the Mississippi. The homes are hidden from busy Black Hawk Road by a row of industries. The only access is a nearly invisible gravel road. The owners prefer it that way.
