The presidential election is very important. The American people need to compare Mitt Romney and President Obama on character.

Mitt Romney cannot be trusted. He only released 2011, 2010 tax returns. He has something to hide -- money in Swiss bank accounts and Cayman Islands; avoiding his share of taxes.

Mitt Romney will manage our country like Bain Capital. The American people better think twice before they cast their vote for Mitt Romney. Character, honesty and loyalty are very important to hold the title of president.

1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
