PETER JOK WINS 2017 GREAT CLIPS THREE-POINT CHAMPIONSHIP - Black Heart Gold Pants

And there you have it. Peter Jok has ended what will go down as an all-time Iowa career on top after winning the Great Clips 3-Point Championship. How fitting that a man best known for his sharp-shooting abilities was able to show off those abilities in his last appearance in an Iowa uniform, on his birthday no less!

In the first round, Peter Jok shot at the same time as Iowa State’s Naz Mitrou-Long, outshooting his interstate counterpart by a score of 21 to 11. Most importantly, he hit four of his five money balls, giving him an extra four points. Jok’s 21 was the best score of the first round.

Trump: Flynn 'should ask for immunity' in Russia 'witch hunt' | TheHill

Flynn's lawyer told The Wall Street Journal one day earlier that the retired lieutenant general is willing to talk to the House and Senate intelligence panels as part of their probes into Russian election meddling and Trump and his aides' alleged ties to Moscow. But any testimony or interview would have to come with a promise that Flynn would not be prosecuted.

Work resumes to complete Washington Streetscape Project

Crews will begin work to put the finishing touches on the Washington Streetscape Project, beginning Monday, April 3, 2017.

The bulk of the remaining work will take place at the intersection of Washington and Linn Streets. To accommodate the work, Linn Street will be reduced to allow only one lane of north-bound traffic between Iowa Avenue and College Street. Crews will finish street and sidewalk paving, as well as the remaining electrical work within the 200 block of Washington Street. The other project work to be completed will not impact traffic along Washington Street.

New traffic signals will not be installed at the Washington Street/Dubuque Street and Washington/Linn Street Intersections. Instead, the Iowa City City Council voted in March to make those intersections four-way stops with stop signs. 

Work on the project should wrap-up with Linn Street reopening at the end of May, weather permitting.

All businesses on Washington Street will remain open and accessible while work is completed.

The Washington Streetscape Project was done to update the look and feel of the street, while also replacing underground infrastructure. It is part of the City’s larger Downtown and Pedestrian Mall Streetscape plan.


What 'Trump in a truck' means for the American Trucking Associations | PR Week

The American Trucking Associations got an unexpected surge of attention once photos of a very animated President Donald Trump in a truck cab went viral after the organization’s White House meeting last Thursday.

The event was picked up by nearly every major news outlet—and even turned into a children’s book by BuzzFeed—largely due to Trump’s enthusiastic reaction to the two semi-trucks parked in front of the White House.

Iowa House advances fireworks, impaired driving bills

DES MOINES — Legal fireworks and tougher penalties for distracted drivers involved in fatalities were approved by Iowa House committees ahead of a Friday deadline for legislation to win support in both chambers of the Legislature.

Both bills had been approved in other committees, as well as in the Senate, but had to win passage in the House Ways and Means Committee because of fees and taxes involved.

Senate File 489 legalizing fireworks went off but not without several committee members trying to douse the bill that would allow the sale and display of pyrotechnics around the Fourth of July and during the Christmas-New Year’s day holiday period. It was approved 14-10 with bipartisan support and opposition.

US oil export surge steals more OPEC share

As OPEC tries to keep oil off the world market, U.S. oil producers are pouring more onto it.

The U.S. last week sent more than 1 million barrels a day of crude out of the country, the third biggest export week ever, and double the average amount exported in 2016. It is also the third time this year that U.S. exports exceeded a million barrels a day, an industry record.

"It should be somewhat supportive of [U.S. oil prices] in the short run, particularly if the exports keep up. But it obviously is a challenge for the global market and a renewed threat to OPEC and their designs of keeping prices up," said John Kilduff of Again Capital.

While the U.S. exported oil, it also exported fuel last week — a steadily growing business. The U.S. sold 1.1 million barrels of diesel fuel, in line with the recent average, but 608,000 barrels a day of gasoline, up from less than 400,000 barrels a day a year ago.

John Fox sees a Bears team in “striking distance”

It is easy to be skeptical of the Bears’ outlook for 2017.

Of their current quarterbacks, Mark Sanchez attempted the most passes last year; he threw 18 as a backup in Dallas. They finished in last place in the NFC North for a third straight year. Their 3-13 record was the franchise’s worst, in the terms of loss total, since 1969.

But John Fox expressed optimism in December. He’s expressing it still.

Near the end of last season, the Bears coach said his club was “closer than people think” and in “striking distance.” He dug himself deeper into that position Wednesday, again telling reporters he believes the Bears are in “striking distance.”

He cited the amount of roster turnover since he and GM Ryan Pace arrived in 2015.

“Going back to a lot of the changes, we’ve had a lot of change,” Fox said, via CSN Chicago. “I think we’re better for it. Unfortunately, you can’t walk around with your chest out about that because of our record the last two years. But I have total confidence, and (Pace) has done an outstanding job and will continue to.

“I understand you have to win. And I finally feel like we’re in striking distance.”

About

Cville Electric owner, Brad Moore got his start in 1983 working for a small electrical contractor in the Iowa City area.  After training and working on remodel and new building projects he took a maintenance electrician job at the University of Iowa Power Plant in 1990.  At the power plant he gained experience with elecrtic motor controls, water and high pressure steam handling systems, boiler and turbine generator controls, and the electrical and electronic controls that run these systems.  During his time at the Power Plant he was promoted to an Electronic Technician supervisor.

In 1996 Brad decided to open his own business- Moore Electrical Service. This business wired many new houses and apartment buildings in the Coralville and Iowa City areas. Rewiring historic homes and working on remodel projects was also a large part of this business.

Since starting Cville Clean Power LLC in 2010, Brad and crew have installed wiring for more than 25 solar PV systems.
