September 5th

Overpowered

IOWA CITY– It was just too much.
Iowa City Regina powered past Solon 31-7 Friday night, dropping the Spartans to 1-1 on the young football season.
Untimely penalties and turnovers plagued Solon throughout the evening, perhaps evidenced best by the closing minutes of the second quarter.
Up to that point, Solon’s defense had kept it close, while the offense had been stagnant.
The Spartans were trailing 10-0, but they had the ball and had strung together a few first downs, driving all the way to the Regina 15-yard-line.

JCHT to host Family Day Sept. 16

JOHNSON COUNTY– Take a day off from the back-to-school blues, and rejuvenate with a day of getting back to nature.
Join Johnson County Heritage Trust members for the organization’s third annual Family Day at Belgum Grove, Sunday, Sept. 16, from 1-3 p.m.

Full time dilemma

JOHNSON COUNTY– The Johnson County Veterans’ Affairs Commission has a new, full-time leader.
For the time being, anyway.
At least one Johnson County supervisor is hesitant to bring another full-time employee aboard, equating a salary increase to a tax increase for Johnson County taxpayers.

Pantry receives capstone donation

NORTH LIBERTY– Their shovels runneth over.
Members of the North Liberty Community Food and Clothing Pantry board had much to celebrate last week, as they conducted a ceremonial groundbreaking to mark the beginning of construction on a 2,376 sq. ft. facility that has been the goal of a $250,000 capital campaign since March 2011.
They also learned on Wednesday morning the pantry was accepted as a United Way organization,
And finally, they were celebrating a $25,000 donation from Centro, Inc. of North Liberty.
It was the donation that tipped the fundraising effort into the black.

More joy, less stress

By B. Adam Burke
North Liberty Leader
NORTH LIBERTY– Last year, Julie and Ben Tweedt’s wedding went off with just one hitch, but they said if they’d had a wedding coordinator, it would’ve been smoother.
“Even an expert needs help,” Ben said.
So when they were putting their heads together to create a small business earlier this year, they didn’t have to go far to find something that would work for both of them.
Growing up with older siblings, Julie has been helping the bride and groom on the biggest day of their lives since she was a little girl.

You’re HOW old?

NORTH LIBERTY– First known as Squash Bend, North Bend, Big Bend and Scales Bend, the town of North Liberty incorporated on Nov. 18, 1913.
Throughout next year, the city plans to celebrate that historic event.
The North Liberty Centennial Committee is already hard at work, preparing for the party.
The committee is made up of a group of about 20 volunteers, at least so far, said assistant city administrator Tracey Mulcahey.
“I sent out a request inviting anybody who was interested in May,” Mulcahey said. “I had several people respond, and have seen the committee grow since then.”

Volunteers wanted for Education Fun Hour at Penn

NORTH LIBERTY– Volunteers are wanted for the Corridor Educational Fun Hour to be held each week at Penn Elementary School in North Liberty.
Scheduled on Tuesdays 4:30-5:45 p.m. and/or 6-7:15 p.m. from Sept. 25 through Nov. 13, the Corridor Educational Fun Hour is designed to give kids fun opportunities to improve math and reading skills through play.

NLYBS to hold Fall Fun Ball

NORTH LIBERTY– North Liberty Youth Baseball and Softball (NLYBS) will offer Fall Fun Ball for girls and boys ages six through 10 years. The purpose is to provide a fun, relaxed fall baseball/softball experience for kids who want to play for the first time, want to continue playing for a few more weeks or are considering playing in a more advanced league next spring. The primary focus of Fall Fun Ball is to help kids transition into rookie and junior leagues, as well as to provide some additional fall recreation to those age groups that may not have other activities.
