I am surprised that this money could be used for something else as I thought it was received by states from the Cigeratte companies in a class action court settlement of money for the states to use to encourage people to stop smoking or to encourage people to not smoke.

Not only should we be concerned about the jobs, we should also be concerned about the unreliable nature of "green" energy. The money we (government) have given away to solar and wind we could have "given" in the form of subsidies to develop scrubbers on coal plants. Coal, cheap, efficient, and abundant. With all of the green energy we will see our electric bills raise - all one has to do is look to…

WarCry- I believe that the city had the opportunity a year ago to give the firefighters a much lower pay increase and voted it down. If money is the real issue here why would they now give them such a good contract. Also, is it fair to close one station to save money? Shouldn't the people in that area be the ones to receive the tax break since they won't have the service any more? "By…

Two Iowa priests suspended over allegations of touching minors

1 year, 11 months ago by Bob Gough

Rev. Robert Harness of Davenport and Rev. John Stack, chaplain at Mercy Medical Center in Clinton, have been removed from their positions during the investigation; incidents allegedly happened more than 20 years ago

The Diocese of Davenport has temporarily removed two priests from their ministries after allegations surfaced that they inappropriately touched minors.

The Rev. Robert Harness, pastor at Holy Family Church, Davenport, and the Rev. John Stack, chaplain at Mercy Medical Center, Clinton, have been removed from their positions while an investigation is conducted, according to a news release Monday from Bishop Martin Amos.

The allegations have been reported to the Scott County Attorney's Office in compliance with a memorandum of understanding between the diocese and the county attorney.

Scott County Attorney Mike Walton said Monday the office will review the cases, according to the terms of the agreement.

"The diocese reports any and all allegations of sexual abuse to the county attorney’s office," Walton said in a statement. This is done without screening or investigation by the diocese regarding truth of the allegations.

"This office reviews the information provided to determine whether further investigation or filing of criminal charges is warranted," Walton said. "It would appear these most recent allegations occurred too long ago to pursue as criminal cases."

The county attorney's office determines whether the relevant statute of limitations has expired. In most cases, charges must be filed within 10 years of the complainant turning 18, according to Walton.
