Success!  I eliminated the asserts.  Thanks for help, everyone.

 ie = Watir::IE.attach(:title, "FooBar Report")
 if ie.text_field(:id,'ctl140_ctl00_ctl09_txtValue').value == 'FOO'
   puts "    FOO Found"
 else
   puts "    FOO Not Found"
 end
 if ie.text_field(:name,'ctl140$ctl00$ctl09$txtValue').value == 'FOO'
   puts "    FOO Found"
 else
   puts "    FOO Not Found"
 end
 if ie.text_field(:value,'FOO').exists?
   puts "    FOO Found"
 else
   puts "    FOO Not Found"

Returns the following:

     FOO Found
     FOO Found
     FOO Found
