But I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Iowa Quad-Cities covid numbers, and probably statewide numbers as well, are going to see a rise in 10-14 days. Over the weekend, my social media feed was flooded with pictures of people at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds, downtown Davenport, the Village of East Davenport, and really all over, enjoying the good weather and the premature St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. What did all of those pictures have in... Read More

At age 16, Irish pirates invaded his family’s home. Maewyn was kidnapped, taken to Ireland and enslaved. Those green beers are already sounding more refreshing, right? The young man that is now known as St. Patrick eventually... Read More
