Moline, IL… Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford will be at the Moline Public Library on Tuesday, September 25, 2012 along with State Representative Rich Morthland (R-Cordova) in a joint effort to connect Illinois residents with their cash and assets through the Treasurer’s new I-Cash program.

“When people move or loved ones pass away, businesses and banks are required to turn over unclaimed accounts to the treasurer’s office,” explained Morthland. “It’s common for people to lose track of those assets. This is a great opportunity to get the help you need to reclaim what’s yours.”

Some examples of unclaimed property currently held by the treasurer’s office include:

  • Money from inactive savings and checking accounts
  • Unpaid wages or commissions
  • Stocks, bonds, and mutual funds
  • Money orders and bill overpayments
  • Paid-up life insurance policies
  • Safe deposit box contents

I-Cash staff will be onsite from 10 am to 12 pm to help residents locate unclaimed property. Rutherford will be available to the media from 11:15-11:45.

To find out if you have unclaimed property through I-Cash, you can visit the treasurer's website at www.treasurer.il.gov and follow the I-Cash link. You can contact the Unclaimed Property Division by calling (217) 785-6998 or emailing This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Presents Congressional Record Statement to Veterans

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack today welcomed ninety-two Iowa veterans of the Greatest Generation and forty-three Gold Star family members to the nation’s capital and presented them with copies of the Congressional Record statement he submitted honoring their service.

The group traveled to Washington as part of the Honor Flight, which is an all expense paid trip for veterans so that they can visit our nation’s capital and the memorials that were built in their honor.  Today’s Honor Flight is particularly notable because Korean War veterans and Gold Star families, who have lost loved ones in Iraq and Afghanistan, are also joining the World War II veterans on the trip.  The Honor Flight left from the Quad Cities Airport this morning and will return tonight.

“This is truly a special Honor Flight because it brings together World War II and Korean War veterans with families of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan,” said Loebsack.  “I am tremendously proud and humbled to welcome members of the Greatest Generation and our Gold Star families to our nation’s capital today.  On behalf of every Iowan I represent, I thank them for their service and sacrifice.”

Loebsack is an avid supporter of our veterans. As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, he has worked to increase veterans’ health care and benefits funding by over 70 percent and has worked to make sure that each and every veteran is treated with the dignity and honor that they deserve.

A copy of the Congressional Record statement can be found here.

The Arc of the Quad Cities Area announces the Quad Cities Chamber will conduct a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Friday, September 21, 2012 at 1 pm at The Arc’s Opportunity Center located at 5101 52nd Avenue in Moline. The Ribbon Cutting celebrates a $275,000 property reinvestment in the Opportunity Center facility. Senator Mike Jacobs of the 36 th Senate District in Illinois was instrumental in facilitating the funds on behalf of The Arc through an energy efficiency grant offered by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. The $275,000 investment converted the 40 year old HVAC system at the Opportunity Center into a geo-thermal system. The Opportunity Center houses day programs, community supports, and community employment services for 144 individuals
with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

The Ribbon Cutting is open to the public. Ambassadors from the Quad Cities Chamber, Senator Mike Jacobs, Board members of The Arc of the Quad Cities Area, The Arc’s executive management team, staff, and individuals served through The Arc will be present.

The Arc of the Quad Cities Area serves more than 300 individuals with intellectual and other disabilities. Programs foster the highest degree of independence possible, offering residential services, developmental and vocational skills training, supported employment, and respite care. From its humble beginnings in the living room of a privately-hired teacher in 1952, The Arc has evolved to a $13.5 million non-profit which employs a staff of more than 250.
