Rockford Rotary is investigating claims that a "juiced" Big Daddy Duck has been spotted in the river the day before the Big Daddy Duck race.  Residents were alarmed to see a Big Daddy Duck moving "unnaturally fast" down the river.  One woman claimed that it was able to turn sharply to avoid objects and even seemed to back up at one point.  A local man added his own observations stating that the duck seemed to "have a mind of its own".  He said it was "disturbing" how quickly and smoothly it moved.  Wild rumors circulated that Bill Knape of Knape Industries in Rockford was responsible.  Rockford Rotary immediately dispatched volunteers to the dam area.  However, the spotters only found the usual array of healthy turtles swimming and enjoying themselves.  Rest assured we will keep an eye on the situation and check all race competitors thoroughly before Saturday's 6 p.m. race.  Come downtown Saturday and help us spot the "juiced" duck.
