    The Bix 7 is a tradition for area families and world class runners every year. Many runners and walkers challenge themselves on this course. While some are participating for the first time, others say they haven't missed a year on the course or the sidelines. They say it's as much about the race as it is the atmosphere and being a part of something this big."I did the quick Bix last year and this year. The other times I've run or limped the Bix," said Jamie Snyder, who is a Bix 7 participant....More >>

A Moline woman offers to give her pregnant sister a ride to the hospital when she goes into labor and ends up delivering the baby herself.

"Five little fingers on each hand, five little toes on each foot," said Sarah York of her newborn niece, Taylor.

At six lbs 13 oz -- baby Taylor was born happy and healthy early Wednesday morning. And she already has a lifelong bond with her Aunt Sarah.

"It was the most amazing thing I've ever seen, ever witnessed, ever done!" 

York delivered Taylor shortly after her sister called to let her know it was "time."

"I received a phone call about 1 in the morning," York said. "Melissa's in her bedroom and she's like, 'I can't move! I'm in too much pain, I cannot get up, I cannot get ready.'"

It was clear, Melissa was ready to push.

"At first I panicked. No, no. You cannot have it here, you need to get ready we're going to the hospital. Don't push." But mom and baby would not make it to the hospital.

"Contraction on top of contraction," said Melissa Livengood on her labor pain. "There was no break in between, she was ready to come."

"Instinct kicked in," York said. "I stayed calm and there wasn't much time to do anything else."

York did call an ambulance but baby Taylor wasn't waiting for the paramedics to arrive.

"Within six minutes from calling the dispatcher, she was already here," said York.

"We've always been a really close family and done a lot together," said Livengood. "So, now this is just another experience that we have to share."
