Craig’s List: 4 Things to Know – 3/1

Tornado and Lightning
Clint Spencer

“Rabbit, rabbit!”  Make it the first thing you say this morning. It is supposed to bring you good luck for the month.

1 – It may be March 1 – the beginning of meteorological Spring – but, February went out like a lion with hail, funnel clouds and tornadoes reported throughout our area. One Ottawa-area resident is dead as a result of the storm. WQAD Meteorologist Eric Sorensen has the details on how March will come in. The warm temps and rain is also causing minor flooding on areas rivers.

2 – Rock Island County primary elections held yesterday will likely result in both East Moline and Silvis having new mayors. In Moline, write-in ballots won’t be counted until today, but the clerk’s office says write-in candidate Stephanie Acri will advance to the general election ballot to face incumbent Scott Raes.

3 – The Bettendorf boy’s basketball team squeaked by North Scott in Iowa District Class 4A action last night. Ottawa had an emotional win over United Township to setup a final against the winner of tonight’s Rock Island vs Moline game in Friday’s Illinois Class 4A Regional Championship game. Details when we do That Sports Thing at around 7:35am on The Morning KIIK Start.

4 – Chris Pratt showed up to Jimmy Kimmel, Live! last night with the new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2. The trailer is thrilling fans on the internet this morning. More entertainment news when we do That Hollywood Things around 8:35am this morning on FM 104.9.

Have a great start to the month of March.

– Craig
