Though the river is still at flood stage, revised plans are moving forward for the Mississippi Valley Blues Festival!  Blues Fest will be moving to accommodate for the high water. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for more details as they are announced. Similarly, an announcement regarding revised plans for Red White & Boom will be coming no later than early next week.

 

 Quite a mix of things await you this weekend at River Music Experience! Sing your heart out solo or with a friend or two tonight during Falbos Karaoke Night. Let Modern Mythology do the singing tomorrow night at Friday Live at 5. On Saturday, find your rhythm and beat by participating in the monthly Community Drum Circle. Keep in mind G. Love & Special Sauce perform in the Redstone Room next Thursday, and RME is closed Friday for 4th of July.

 

 Venture outside and enjoy the summer weather by starting your Saturday off at the Freight House Farmer's Market. Find tons of unique, local treats, veggies, crafts, herbs, and more all in one spot. Have the kids bring a white t-shirt to decorate on Saturday with red and blue paint for a fireworks theme. The QC Food Hub will also host a Composting 101 class for all of those gardeners out there!

 

 Cookies, cinnamon rolls, scones, cakes, cupcakes, poptarts, pies, and MUCH more...where might you find these scrumptious sweets? Oh So Sweet by Tiphanie, of course! Stop by and welcome our newest addition to downtown and enjoy a modern twist on vintage recipes.  Trust us, folks, you won't regret it!

 

 Help celebrate the second anniversary of Boho Chic Fine Art Gallery in Bucktown Center for the Arts on Friday. Head on over and take advantage of 20% off anniversary pricing. From art created from clay, paint, fabric, photography, and more, here's your chance to find a one-of-a-kind gift while supporting local arts. Cake will also be provided!

 

 Summer calls for good times with good tunes. Find yourself a new CD, record, or cassette at Ragged Records to jam out to this summer. Open from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, make sure you stop in and check out their collection! While you're in the area, stop by Abernathy's and pick up a unique summer outfit- jewelry, shoes, perfume, and all.

 

We'll be celebrating the historic Democrat Lofts ribbon cutting later this afternoon!  If you're looking for an amazing apartment downtown, be sure to check out the website and get a great room while you still can.

 

See you downtown!

Loebsack to Host “Serving Those Who Served” Events Across District PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Local Events

Wednesday, 25 June 2014 14:49

Third annual series of veterans town halls to coincide with July 4th holiday

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced that he will host a series of veterans town halls on his Serving Those Who Served tour with stops across the Second District. These forums will give veterans and their families an opportunity to speak directly with Loebsack. Staff will also be on hand for veterans to seek assistance if they are having issues with the Veterans Administration, or any Federal agency. At each stop, Loebsack will be joined by representatives from local Veteran Service Organizations, County Veterans Affairs Officers and other groups.

“As Iowans come together to celebrate the birth of our nation, we must take time to remember those men and women who fought for the freedoms we treasure. As a military parent and member of the House Armed Services Committee, I take great pride in Serving Those Who Served. I strongly believe that there is no greater responsibility we have as a nation than to ensure our servicemembers have the support, equipment, and training they need to safely carry out their mission and that we care for our veterans with the same dignity and honor with which they served. I look forward to meeting with veterans and their families to discuss issues important to them and provide any assistance my office can help with.”

Loebsack will hold forums in Muscatine, Iowa City, Ottumwa, Ft. Madison, Burlington, Newton, Knoxville, Davenport, Clinton and Washington. This is the third year that Loebsack has hosted town halls specifically for veterans around the July 4th holiday. Veterans, their families and media are invited to attend.

Paralympic Games Gold Medalist to Discuss “Creating Positive Outcomes” PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Local Events
Written by Mark McLaughlin   
Tuesday, 24 June 2014 14:51
IA/IL QUAD-CITIES – Always a hockey fanatic, Andrew “Andy” Yohe of Bettendorf, Iowa, was a roller hockey player for the Bettendorf Young Guns before losing both legs in 1994. He was run over while trying to jump onto a train. But he did not allow the accident to prevent him from continuing with his athletic career. Andy became an ice sled hockey player and went on to serve as captain of the U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team that won the gold medal at the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games in Vancouver and the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

Andy has an indomitable spirit, as well as a vital message to share with the public. He will give a presentation called “Creating Positive Outcomes” at a Think Tank session to be held 6 to 8 p.m. June 26, at Rivermont Collegiate, 1821 Sunset Dr., Bettendorf. Cost of the session is $20 ($10 for students 18 and younger) and includes complimentary hors d’oeuvres. The Think Tank is a division of Results Marketing in Bettendorf.

“The Think Tank provides a forum for the Quad-City area’s most compelling thinkers and doers,” said Todd Ashby, Managing Partner of Results Marketing. “We are pleased to have Andy as a presenter and believe that attendees will find his presentation both inspiring and informative.” Results Marketing is also the creator of the Idea Lab, a progressive discussion group, and is the hosting sponsor of Leadercast in the Quad-Cities area.
“To receive positive outcomes, you must first be positive,” said Andy. “This may sound simple, but you must focus and make an effort to be positive in all aspects of your life. Make sure to talk about things you like, and why your day is going good. Compliment someone or tell them, ‘Good job.’” His presentation will stress the need to “Evaluate, Educate, Adapt, and Believe” in life. According to Andy, these abilities are “the reason humans are so amazing.”
A Winning Attitude
After his accident, Andy got back into hockey when he joined the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) Blackhawks. His winning attitude prevailed when he set the club’s record for points in a season by a rookie. Andy was a member of Team USA in 2006 and helped the team win a bronze medal at the Paralympic Winter Games in Torino, Italy.
Excited to compete again four years later, Andy helped the U.S. capture the gold medal at the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games in Vancouver, Canada. After the Vancouver Games, Andy took a three-season hiatus to begin a family with his wife Katie. Andy returned to the game as the oldest member and team captain of the 2014 U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team.
Andy manages a prosthetic and orthotic facility and currently resides in Bettendorf with Katie, three-year-old daughter Abby, and newborn son Levi. He is a 2009 graduate of Ashford University with a degree in Business Administration.
The Paralympic Games is a major international multi-sport event, involving athletes with a range of physical challenges. The Paralympics have grown from a small gathering of British World War II veterans in 1948 to become one of today’s largest international sporting events. Paralympians strive for equal treatment with non-disabled Olympic athletes. The Paralympic Games are organized in parallel with the Olympic Games.
