December 5th

Watching the watchers

IOWA CITY- A Great Blue Heron is quickly located on a distant shoreline. A Mallard couple is mucking in the water near the shore. The water is lower than anyone can remember, the result of a dry spell continuing into autumn this year.
Then, an urgent call:
“Mystery sparrow!”
Instantly, there is a flurry of movement as 20 pairs of hands move optical aids to their own eyes to scan the brush, shore or tree line.
“What do we got?”
The “mystery” bird is identified as a Lincoln’s sparrow.

One more winter

SHUEYVILLE– Commuters and residents will have to wait a few months more for the reconstruction of 120th St. from this northwest Johnson County community west toward I-380.
Plans for the project have been reviewed, according to Mayor Bryan Bredman, and are currently being finalized.
“All necessary permits have been acquired and we anticipate a January-February time frame for bid letting, with construction then beginning in the spring of 2012,” Bredman said.

Spartan wrestlers take third

MONTICELLO– The Solon varsity wrestling team crowned four individual champions during its first tournament competition of the year this past Saturday at Monticello.
First place winners included :
– Cody Fritz, 152 pounds
– J.J. Hanus, 170 pounds
– Lance Evans, 182 pounds
– Jay Pike, 215 pounds
Other place winners included:
– Louis Gnida, fourth at 106 pounds
– Trevor Yahr, fifth at 113 pounds
– Brian Haight, fifth at 126 pounds
– Taylor Walkner, fourth at 138 pounds
– Elijah Kane, fifth at 138
– Jarrett Paulson, third at 145
– Aaron Shulista, third at 170

Cedar Ridge Vineyards honored for wine making excellence

SWISHER– It’s the best wine in the state of Iowa, and it’s grown right here in the Corridor.
Cedar Ridge Vineyard’s La Crescent wine took the top honor of “Best Iowa Grown Wine” at the 5th annual Mid-American Wine Competition, held this summer in Ankeny. The contest involved 82 commercial wineries from 14 Midwestern states and over 530 entries. The La Crescent also won a gold medal as did Cedar Ridge’s Reserve and Edelweiss wines. The winery and distiller also brought home a gold medal for Best Series Label Design.

Come-from-behind wins

SOLON– The Spartans are 2-0, but it took two dramatic come-from-behind wins to get there.
Solon Head Coach Brad Randall is happy the team’s where it’s at.
“We’re playing kids at every grade level,” Randall said. “This is probably one of the most inexperienced teams we’ve had.”
The Spartans got off to a slow start, but rebounded to win Tuesday at Marion 58-52, and then at home against Center Point-Urbana (CPU), 72-42 Friday night.

Rebound on the road

SOLON– The Solon girls let the lead slip away against Marion at home, but not on the road at Center Point.
The Lady Spartans moved to 2-1 on the young basketball season last week, dropping a 58-52 home opener to Marion, but rebounding for a 47-43 win at Center Point-Urbana (CPU).
Foul trouble spoiled the home opener for the Solon Lady Spartans against WaMaC foes from Marion Tuesday, Nov. 29. Solon led by eight after Mel Breza hit a buzzer-beater to close the first half.
“We had a nice lead throughout, but we committed way too many fouls,” Solon Head Coach Mark Sovers said.
