May 26th

Walkin'

“If you can’t say something nice about someone, don’t say anything at all,” is instruction I received from my mother early and often as a primer to righteous, Christian living.
If you weren’t sure whether something was “nice” or not, then you applied a simple test: “If you’re embarrassed to say something to somebody’s face then it must not be very nice.”
The Solon school board appears to have adopted a completely different and opposite operating procedure: If we can’t say something nice then let’s go into closed session and say it behind their backs.

Community Stories May 16 Open House spotlights communities

CORALVILLE–What stories do you have, just waiting to be told?
Johnson County has many, and for the past few months, people throughout the county have gone in search of them. They opened their scrapbooks, rummaged through old papers, and hunted in the archives to put together accounts of times gone by as well as the present. The result is the Community Stories Project—a permanent museum exhibit showcasing the cities, towns and villages that make Johnson County special.
The exhibit is a collaborative effort between the historical society and people from each community.

Food for Thought

I look out of my window and see one of the more glorious signs of spring: my magnolia tree in full bud, just ready to bloom. It has been close to 30 years since we planted the magnolia. We planted it in a poorly thought-out location, as it is visible from only one window (what was once a bedroom and is now a study), and the soil was poor in that part of the yard, so it took many years to become established and flourish.
