September 19th

Hawk Talk

You start out with the Hawkeyes making stupid penalties on both sides of the ball, the offense getting sacked and not finding a running game, the defense missing tackles and blowing coverage and special teams missing two field goals and kicking off out of bounds again.
What does that add up to?
THE GREATEST COMEBACK IN THE HISTORY OF IOWA FOOTBALL, 31-27, OVER PITTSBURGH!
Since I didn’t make it to the first game, this felt like the home opener for me.

Keeping farm families alive and well

IOWA CITY– According to the National Institute of Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH), agriculture is one of the nation’s most hazardous occupations. On average, 550 farmers die in agriculture related incidents every year. One-hundred kids, on average, are also killed on the farm. In Iowa, approximately 30 deaths per year occur, with three to four of those being children.
Obvious dangers include machinery, livestock and chemical exposure. However, death also comes from chronic conditions built up over time.
Roger Stutsman of Hills knows the dangers all too well.

Lady Spartans move to 16-1

SOLON– The Lady Spartans have become an efficient volleyball machine.
Solon ranks high in Class 3A in kills, kill efficiency, serving success and serving efficiency.
Last week was a light one for the Solon varsity volleyball squad, but the rest of September has been busy.
The Lady Spartans dusted off Western Dubuque last Tuesday, 25-7, 25-18, 25-15 to move to 16-1 on the season, their sole loss coming at the hands of No. 10 4A Dubuque Hempstead at the Linn-Mar tournament Sept. 10.

Both sides clicking now

TIFFIN– It took a little time to get rolling.
After a shaky end to Solon’s first drive, the Spartans put up four touchdowns in the first half to spoil Clear Creek Amana’s (CCA) Homecoming Friday night, 38-9.
Solon had marched all the way to the CCA 1-yard line in its opening possession, but a holding penalty negated a touchdown, a snap sailed over the head of Solon quarterback J. J. Hanus, and he was subsequently sacked for a 7-yard loss.
Josh Proehl, however, was up to the task, and a 41-yard field goal put the Spartans on the scoreboard with a 3-0 lead.

City prepares to educate the public on $1.35 million city hall bond issue

By Doug Lindner
Solon Economist
SOLON– If you have questions about the city’s plan for a new city hall, you should have answers soon.
The Solon City Council met last week in a special session to discuss the promotion and potential repayment of a $1.35 million bond issue, which will appear on the Nov. 8 general election ballot.
Council members approved the language for the bond issue during the Sept. 14 meeting, and also decided on a 65/35 split for repaying the 12-year bond through Tax Increment Finance (TIF) money and the city’s debt service levy.
