New site for city hall?

SOLON– To most Solon council members and the mayor, it’s an opportunity too unique to pass up.
The City of Solon is at least considering the purchase of the Brosh Chapel and Community Center on South Cedar Street for use as city offices and a community center.
With the $1.3 million price tag would come the building, built in 2003, as well as the parking lot across Cedar Street to the west.
“It’s a package deal,” said council member Brad Kunkel. “We get offices, it’s room for growth and it’s also the opportunity to use the downstairs for however we decide.”

Hawk Talk

Tim Fangman has lived in North Liberty since he was two years old.
During that time, he followed the Chicago White Sox, led by Frank Thomas, and was a Minnesota Vikings fan, but deep down he wanted to play for the Hawkeyes.
“He was always a Hawkeye fan,” said Tim’s mom, Gwen Fangman. “It was his dream to play for the Hawkeyes. He never thought he’d be good enough but he worked hard.”
The only question was… what sport?
Tim played little league baseball in the area and developed into a real good pitcher.
He played at Koser Park in North Liberty and didn’t have a great start on the mound.
