SHS students learn history first-hand at POW/MIA event

SOLON– Imagine living for six weeks, only eating one handful of field corn per day. Ted Sprouse doesn’t have to imagine it.
He lived it.
Sprouse was serving the US Army in Korea in 1950 when the Chinese swarmed the American and UN lines. He was wounded and captured, wearing a summer-issue uniform as winter set in. For six weeks, a daily handful of corn, his only ration, sustained him.
“We survived that,” he told students at the Solon High School.

Connecting with kindness and kolaches

ELY– Anyone can postmark a card, send flowers and maybe even pay a short visit to friends who are under the weather or feeling blue.
But to bake a batch of kolaches? Now, that’s a heartfelt sentiment.
When Ely Presbyterian Church elder Lacey Stockdale was searching for new ways to reach out to the community, she and church member Joanne Chadima landed on a time-honored, generations-old tradition.

New public works building completed

SOLON– “The new shop is completed,” Solon Public Works Director Scott Kleppe reported to members of the city council last week. “Thank you very much for your support.”
Kleppe has moved his office and the city’s fleet across the street from its old location into a new 64-by-45 foot Energy Panel Structures (EPS) post frame building.
The new Solon Public Works building features three front bays and a side bay, and something the old shop was lacking– a floor drain.

Have you read this?

A new thriller by Swedish author Lars Kepler has been added to the collection but is usually checked out and not on the shelf. “The Hypnotist” is impossible to put down. Placed in Sweden, a gruesome triple-homicide gathers the attention of Detective Inspector Joona Linna. The killer is still on the loose, and there’s only one surviving witness– the boy whose family was killed in front of him.
