Hawk Talk

This is the second part of a preseason preview of Hawkeye football.
Last week, I looked at the offensive line, the tight ends, receivers and fullbacks.
This week I’ll break down the quarterbacks, the running backs and defensive line.
There is no doubt that James Vandenberg (6-3, 212) is the straw that stirs the drink on the Hawkeye football team.
James Ferentz leads the offensive line and Micah Hyde the defense, but the Hawks will go as far as Vandenberg leads the team.

Official dedication for nearly completed Spartan Stadium set for Sept. 7

SOLON- Kickoff is still set for 5:30 p.m., Aug. 24, against the Mount Vernon Mustangs in the first game to be played at the new, nearly-completed Spartan Stadium.
But a few items remain to be completed for the 3A-rated football arena and home of the Solon marching band, track and field, and soccer teams.
Thanks to some otherwise welcome rain, the construction schedule slowed and Solon will have to hold off on the fanfare and hoopla of a grand unveiling until Sept. 7, when the Solon footballers play the Panthers of Mt. Pleasant.

City forgives sewer usage for watering sod

SOLON– To err is human, to forgive divine.
If so, the members of the Solon City Council were in a divine mood last week, forgiving over $1,000 in sewer fees for two new residents who were forced to use large quantities of water to keep their new sod alive over the summer drought.
The council members were not as sympathetic to another family with a high water bill apparently stemming from a leaky toilet.

September Book Club selection

The September selection for the Solon Area Book Club is “Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal,” by Christopher Moore. This divinely hilarious yet heartfelt work is reminiscent of Vonnegut and Douglas Adams. No one knows about the early life of the Son of God except Biff, the Messiah’s best bud, who proceeds to tell the story.
