Alleman student worries about paying for college after yardwork equipment is taken from his driveway

An Alleman High School student is in shock after he claims he had something stolen last night. Security camera footage provided by student Sam Maynard shows a van pulling up in an alley near his driveway, a woman getting out of the car, and then returning with what Maynard says is his backpack blower. That equipment is part of the gear he uses to do yardwork for people in order to earn money to pay for his upcoming college tuition. “It’s paying for my college,” said Maynard. “I plan to go to school but to do that I have to pay for all my living expenses plus tuition. When I saw the video I couldn’t help but get a little sad. I know they didn’t know what they were doing or who I was personally, but it still hurt.” Local 4 News reached out to Moline Police Department for information on the incident. They say a theft report was filed on September 17 just before 4:30 PM. If you have any information regarding this incident, please contact the Moline Police Department.

Quad City Arts celebrates 50 years

Quad City Arts has inspired individuals young and old to follow their dreams since 1970. This month, the organization celebrates fifty years of serving the Quad Cities. One of those individuals is Fiona McGrath Nagle, who said the group led her to her career. “It showed me that I could actually have a career in dance, and enjoy it, and make an impact on others,” she said. McGrath Nagle is a former QC Metro Arts Dance Apprentice that now works in theatre, and said the arts can bring people together. “It’s the feel good vibes of just seeing people perform, and being happy on stage,” she said. “You just feel like you’re closer together when you get to see the arts live.” One club the group supports are the Quad Cities Wood Turners, who went virtual recently, with the help of new equipment from Quad City Arts. “They have been tremendous partners with us since we’ve been around. We haven’t been around for fifty years, but we’ve been around for sixteen years and they’ve always been here to support us,” Bob Mattison, the club’s secretary said. The new technology that allows the club to host classes via Zoom has helped the group reach people from Wisconsin, Oregon and Colorado alongside their regular club members. “It’s really allowed us to expand and do much more,” Mattison said. Expanding arts programs locally is exactly what Quad City Arts Executive Director Kevin Maynard is pushing for. “Our goal will always be to enrich the quality of life in the Quad City region through the arts. The other impacts we hope to make are to provide an arts-rich experience for every Quad Citizen,” Maynard said. For more information about Quad City Arts, click the link here.

Bettendorf High School teachers remember ‘one of a kind’ para- educator who suddenly died

Students and staff at Bettendorf High School are saying good bye to an educator who made a big impact on their community. A para-educator at the school died last week. Delia Ford worked with special needs students for the last five years. People who knew her couldn’t believe it when they heard what happened. She was only 51 years old. “Crazy, nuts and loving all in one. She was very protective and loving with her kids. We all liked to have fun, and fun and games, but that was the type of person she was,” says Fletcher Ford, Delia’s brother. Those are words he says best describes his sister. “It was just immediate, and they really couldn’t give us a cause,” says Ford. “Her daughter Isabella went to check on her about 7:30 in the morning she was fine. She went to get doughnuts and coffee she came back and she wasn’t.” Although she’s no longer here, the impact she left in the community is ever lasting. Teachers like Jason Hamann says she went above and beyond for her students. “She was one of the most caring, and loving people that I know. She always had what kids needed at the forefront of her daily work. She will be missed by staff, and by quite a few students as well,” says Hamann. Sarah Paris, a para-educator says Delia will be missed. “She was my best friend she was a highly respected educator here at the high school,” says Paris. Ford says it’s heartwarming to know the effect she had on many in the community. “It was one of those situations where I didn’t realize how many people she impacted until this happened,” says Ford. He says it serves as a reminder to cherish your loved ones. Ford says, “I literally spoke to her the night before. We were talking about church, and things coming up. It’s one good thing out of this I guess. Is that it’s a reminder that tomorrow is not guaranteed on this earth.” Delia Ford leaves behind two children Isabella, and Logan who are now living with her brother. Ford says that’s what is giving him the strength to stay strong. “Her kids, they need stability in their life. They’re living with us now. Delia did such a wonderful job making sure they had school opportunities, and did the things they were suppose to do. I just want to make sure that continues,” says Ford. Ford’s family is holding a service at the Community Fellowship Church in Bluegrass Saturday. Visitation begins at 10a.m., and the service is expected to begin at Noon. The public is invited to attend.

Hearing set for Davenport man accused of striking another person with a car

A preliminary hearing has been set for a Davenport man accused of trying to run over another person in May at a Davenport gas station. Roemello Jones, 25, was held briefly Wednesday in Scott County Jail before he posted bond. He faces felony charges of willful injury causing bodily injury and fourth-degree criminal mischief, along with a misdemeanor charge of simple assault, in connection with the incident. According to the arrest affidavit: Shortly before 4 p.m. May 30, Davenport police responded to the area of 1200 Brady Street for a report of someone being struck by a vehicle. Another person said Jones struck him with a gray Chevrolet Impala without plates, an incident that stemmed from a child-custody situation. Jones entered the Shell Gas Station at 1139 Brady St. and tried to assault the other person, tackling him into a counter at the gas station. Several other people saw the altercation, which smashed a food warmer, valued at $500, off the counter and destroyed it. The altercation continued into the parking lot, where Jones entered the car and struck the other person, who suffered injuries to his feet consistent with being run over by a vehicle. A recording of the incident shows Jones entering the car and leaving the parking lot at a high rate of speed in the direction the other person was running. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Sept. 25 in Scott County Court.

The first group in 1984 was made of 15 students now fastforward to 2020 and the group has 60 students learning traditional Mexican Dances. Caillou De La Paz joined the Quad Cities Ballet Folklorico when he was 11-years-old and hasn’t looked back since. “I would watch the Quad Cities Ballet Folklorico before I joined and I would just be in awe and never really thought I could do something like that until I came to a practice and learned the basic steps and it all snow balled from there and they created a really good dancer out of me,” said De La Paz.The Quad Cities Ballet Folklorico was established by Arnulfo Camarillo with the help of his wife Beatriz Camarillo in 1984 in hopes of keeping the Mexican traditions alive in the area. But their reach goes futher than just the Quad Cities they’ve performed thoughout the U.S. and Mexico. “We’ve been fortunate in the past to travel all the way to Arizona, California and even Texas,” said Ray Terronez, QCBF Director. Members of the group learn how to dance but that’s not all. “We also teach them some of the background and some of the history so maybe one month we’ll focus on Veracruz while we’re performing that state that way the kids know where the costumes came from,” said Sonia Herrera QCBF Dance Instructor. Andrea Martinez went from a student to a dance instructor and now hopes to help her students come out of their comfort zone. “I started off really shy I didn’t know anything I wanted to help them,” said Martinez. “I was not nervous at all when I was going to perform for the first time I remember it was an Azteca traditional dance, I was really excited to perform for the very first time.” The Quad Cities Ballet Folklorico understands money can be an obstacle for students becoming involved in their community but the group does everything they can to ensure those interested can learn the traditional Mexican dances. “Always been free the classes don’t cost anything our director Arnulfo was very insistent we do not charge anything and we to this day we do not charge our students our dancers for anything,” said Sonia Herrera QCBF Dance Instructor. The lessons students learn are priceless. As for De La Paz every dance step he takes brings him closer to his culture. “Gives me the you know strength and the courage to go out there and perform infront of peope without any nervous or any types of emotions that would stop me doing what I do,” said De La Paz. “After I joined Quad Cities Ballet Folklorico my Mexican roots just florished and that’s all I really think about when I’m dancing is my family in Mexico and my family here and everything they’ve done to make my life how it is today.” Quad Cities Ballet Folklorico has also been able to learn dances from professional Mexican dancers.

Harvest 2020: Picking derecho-damaged corn

MADRID, Iowa – Harvest time is here for the Cokemiller family. Thursday found them working in their second field of corn bent over by August’s Derecho. Kody Cokemiller spoke with us as his father and uncle picked the corn they could. Cokemiller said they are pleased with the results so far considering the damage. They chose to harvest while the corn was a little green before it got dry and they would lose more ears to breakage. The result is corn with higher moisture but they are leaving less in the field. They are also only able to harvest in one direction, resulting in twice as many passes and more time spent picking less corn. Overall Cokemiller estimates this field northwest of Madrid is 30 percent short of the potential it had on the morning of August 10, before the storm hit. And while he would like to forget this year he knows they will be planting in the spring of 2021. He adds “I’d say it can’t get any worse than this but I don’t wanna say that cuz you never know.”

Local Girl Scout achieves highest honor

Bettendorf Girl Scout Ramya Subramaniam received the Gold Award from the Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois, which is the highest honor an organization member can achieve. She says her project is about more than the recognition. “I’m really proud looking back, that I’ve not only finished my Gold Award project, but I’ve also helped people and the environment, and that’s all stuff that I care about,” she said. Maura Warner, the vice president of marketing for Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois, says the project helps people think twice about their school supply use. “The environment is a big topic right now. We need to make sure that we’re conserving our resources,” Warner said. “Instead of just throwing away that notebook at the end of the year, how do we give back and keep using that?” Subramaniam says notebooks, binders, folders and writing utensils are the main resuable items. “With a notebook, like, even though there is writing on the back, I just go in and erase it all, or just put a drawing on top of it,” she said. Her supplies have helped thirty local families, and she plans to help students beyond the U.S. “I went on a service-learning trip to Peru last year with my school, and I realized all of those kids could use the supplies that we don’t finish,” she said. The pandemic halted her plan for international donations, but she is excited to help her peers locally and reduce waste. “That’s how we’re going to lower our environmental footprint,” she said. The Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois reports that fifteen organization members are working towards their Gold Award, which requires eighty service hours and substantial planning.

Soles for Children plans to give away more than 500 pairs of shoes, coats to area families

Organizations and businesses in the Quad Cities are coming together to give away more than 500 pairs of shoes and coats before winter gets here. For the last five years the ‘Soles for Children’ free shoe give-away has helped hundreds of area families. Organizers say it’s a way to help kids who may struggle to get essentials like shoes, coats, haircuts and food. They say the need has increased during the pandemic. Julio Guevara, Owner of Campos Mufflers and Brakes in Rock Island has been one of the sponsors of the event since it’s start. “We want to make sure they see us as a repair facility of course, so we can also provide not just repairs, but more than that to the community,” says Guevara. Guevara says there has been a great response from the community. “Kids and parents who are struggling providing for their children this is big. Especially around this time with school starting fresh. It plays out perfect for the children in our community,” says Guevara. A community that Guevara says has been affected more due to the pandemic. Guevara says, “A lot of parents are with no jobs, they can’t afford to buy new shoes for their children. By doing this it’s a big relief off their back.” Especially for parent Dionne Williams who has benefited from the event in the past. She says she’s grateful for the helping hand. “Being a single mom of two my thing is to make things stretch, and make things durable during the year. Especially when the winter weather gets here,” says Williams. “If there is something that I can do or the community can contribute to me, and my family to help us prepare for the winter I’m all about it.” The ‘Soles for Children’ coat and shoe giveaway event will be held September 27th from 3p.m- 6p.m. It’s being held at the Martin Luther King Center in Rock Island. All donations can be dropped off at Campos Mufflers and Brakes in Rock Island up until the event.
