Sheriff's Office files charges in burglary cases

IOWA CITY– The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office has filed charges on individuals believed to be involved in some residential burglaries in Northern Johnson County. Areas included North Liberty, Solon and the rural areas around those cities. The Sheriff’s Office worked this investigation with the North Liberty Police Department. The residences affected were located off of the following streets or roads: Sugar Bottom Road, Spring Breeze Ct., Pine Ridge NE, Willow Ct. and Maple Circle and some addresses in North Liberty.

From the heartland to the mountains

NORTH LIBERTY– For Arlene Kaczinski, what started out as boxful of good intentions turned into a truckload of them.
In February, Arlene watched a production of ABC’s “20/20” television program, when Diane Sawyer gave the world an inside look into one of the nation’s poorest regions, deep in the mountains of Appalachia.
“It showed the terrible poverty of these people,” said Arlene. “One month later, I was surfing the web and saw more about it. It mentioned the Homecoming Church in Inez, Ky.”

From the firehouse to your house

NORTH LIBERTY — Firefighters are known for many things: bravery, strength, heroism, and cooking. Yes, cooking. While volunteer firefighters aren’t cooking meals at the station with the frequency of their career brothers and sisters, they still tend to know their way around the kitchen.

CCA facilities update highlighted by the routine

OXFORD — In an impromptu report, Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Facilities Director Ray Willoughby described progress on the district’s various projects June 17 during the regular monthly meeting of the school board.
“The weather has everything fouled up…as usual,” Willoughby joked in reference to recent rainfall affecting work on the athletic complex and new auditorium in Tiffin. Willoughby described the recently dug and concrete lined orchestra pit as a swimming pool.

Windham Community Church to host annual Ice Cream Social

OXFORD– On Sunday, June 28 from 4-7 p.m. the Windham Community Church, located at 1424 Black Diamond Road SW, Oxford, is hosting its annual Ice Cream Social. The Social will feature old fashioned, hand-cranked, homemade ice cream along with cakes and pies. There is a free will donation.

Facilitating excellence in the corridor

NORTH LIBERTY– Michael Tryon doesn’t equate a floundering economy with inevitable business disaster.
In fact, Tryon and his family have launched a new start-up of their own geared toward helping other businesses thrive, even in these trying economic times. Tryon Enterprises opened an office at 745 Community Drive, next to Quiznos in Liberty Centre. Though Tryon Enterprises is a brand new venture, Tryon and his associates have a wealth of experience and a long history of helping others succeed.

The end is here: New CCA High School complete

TIFFIN — It began with a proposal. A bond issue was debated to finance it. Weather added delays in the construction schedule. Now, as the 2008-2009 school year comes to an end, the new Clear Creek Amana (CCA) High School is entering the final phase of construction and preparation so as to be ready for the start of school in the fall.

Fresh food, al fresco

NORTH LIBERTY– Another North Liberty restaurant will soon offer outdoor dining.
The North Liberty City Council supported a proposed revision to the property at 405 N. Dubuque Street, the location of the popular dining spot occupied by Red’s Alehouse. Owners Matt and Faye Swift have asked to build an outdoor dining area in the point area between Main Street and Dubuque Street.
“The proposal is for a highly developed area,” City Planner Dean Wheatley told the council last Tuesday, June 9. “There will be a gas fire pit feature, trees, and up-lighting.”

New Kum and Go store to offer additional convenience

NORTH LIBERTY– The North Liberty City Council approved a site plan for a new convenience store located on the northeast corner of Kansas Avenue and Penn Street.
Kum N Go, LC, has proposed a 3,391 sq. ft. building to be built on Lininger Lane, just off Kansas Avenue. The store will have a masonry façade and offer eight gas pumps.
Dave Lemons, real estate development representative for Kum N Go, presented the concept for the new store to the City Council last Tuesday, June 9. Lemons said the city’s growth was the main attraction for the convenience chain to locate in North Liberty.
