DES MOINES– The Solon Spartans let a 14-point lead escape them, but hung on for a 50-46 defeat of Mid-Prairie in the opening round of the 2A state basketball tournament Tuesday (Mar. 9).
Senior guard Hale Rickels and junior forward Jesse Carson sparked the Solon squad with 14 points each. The Spartans shot 50 percent from beyond the arc and forced the Golden Hawks into 17 turnovers, but Mid-Prairie won the battle of the boards and shot better overall from the field.

County pursuing Shueyville road repair loan

IOWA CITY — An improved 120th Street through Shueyville is one mile closer to reality, but don’t consider the project shovel-ready just yet.
During a Feb. 17 key issues work session, the Johnson County Board of Supervisors directed Executive Assistant Andy Johnson to continue discussion and pursue an agreement with the city of Shueyville to fund the work.

Solon teenager charged with burglary, attempted murder in Iowa City

IOWA CITY– A Solon teenager will face felony charges after an attempted burglary in Iowa City last week.

Times they are a-changing– to broadband

NORTH LIBERTY– In a new initiative, South Slope Communications will spend approximately $10 million every year over the next five or six years to install fiber optic cable throughout its coverage area, greatly increasing the company’s ability to provide high speed broadband Internet to its customers.
First stop – North Liberty.

Walkin'

Playing golf was pretty much out of reach when I was a kid. A set of clubs and green fees were, and still are, expensive.
Sometime in my late teens I tried the game a couple of times using borrowed clubs, but I never really got hooked. Somewhere along the line I picked up a set of used clubs but played sporadically in my 20s.

Food for Thought

American social habits are confusing sometimes. We ask people how they are but don't want to hear the truth. We expect a pleasant, predictable answer of three words or less. “Fine, thanks,” usually does it. If we actually try telling the person how we feel, their eyes glaze over or wander off to somebody else and we find we are basically talking to ourselves because no one is actually listening. You can usually tell, by their response, that they're not interested because they'll say something totally unrelated.

Hawkeye women finish strong

IOWA CITY– Do you believe in miracles?
It might not have been as big as the US hockey win over Russia in the 1980 Olympics, but for the Hawkeye women to start out 1-6, last in the Big Ten, and then to finish 9-2 has to be one of the best turnarounds in recent history.
Iowa’s 68-60 overtime win at Wisconsin last Sunday gave the Hawks a 17-10 record, 10-8 in the Big Ten which will give them the third place seed in the Big Ten tournament this weekend.

Hawk men also win last home game

IOWA CITY– Iowa finished their home stand with a 73-57 win over Indiana last Sunday but lost to Northwestern at Evanston.
I don’t know what to say about the men’s 74-57 loss to the Wildcats last Thursday.
In Iowa’s first game against the 'Cats in Iowa City they might have played their best game of the year.
The Hawks jumped out to a 35-22 lead at half and won 78-65.
Iowa shot 50 percent from the floor, 50 percent from 3-point range, won the rebound battle, 36-28, and had four players in double-figures.

Guest Opinion from the Iowa State Senate

During these tough economic times, everybody is cutting back and doing more with less.
That’s why it was shocking to learn that Wellmark Blue Cross/Blue Shield is demanding an 18-percent insurance rate hike. More than 80,000 Iowans would be hit.
Iowa families can’t afford these outrageous insurance premium increases, and they deserve to know if it is justified.
