Getting to State: Only half the battle

A strong regional performance is one thing. Solon not only moves up to Class 3A this season, but has to battle seven other regional champions, as well as the rest of the field for points at State. Tops in the field may be Dubuque Wahlert. Mount Vernon-Lisbon is the defending Class 3A champ, though Solon has beaten them a couple of times. “They have some of the top individuals and relays; they can count on scoring high. They have the experienced runners that are used to being there,” noted Solon Coach Brent Sands.

North Bend, North Central students and staff plant trees for energy efficiency

NORTH LIBERTY– “It blows out here even when the wind isn’t blowing,” said North Bend Elementary Principal Brenda Parker as she looked toward the expanse north and west of the Clear Creek Amana school in North Liberty. In the winter, strong northwest winds buffet the school building and often fill the faculty parking lot with snow.
But, thanks to a unique partnership and a little effort on the part of the students and staff, relief should be coming within the next few years.

Cooper, Vice President of National Services for Pearson, said he would still be able to maintain his current position while moving to Minneapolis to spend more time with family members who live there.
