Food For Thought

I keep hearing statements that, at first, seem to be perfectly logical but, upon reflection, don’t make sense at all. A month or two ago, I heard two vastly different films touted as “classics.” One was a new animated movie which was described as being “a new seasonal classic” and the other was Ken Burns’ documentary about the Civil War. I find it difficult to believe that two such diverse films have enough in common to be described by the same adjective.

SOLON– It was Senior Night for the Spartans last Thursday as they hosted their friendly rivals, the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers in a varsity/JV match. The seniors, indeed the bulk of the Spartan bench, shined in an 8-2 hammering of the Clippers.
“It was a great night,” Spartan Coach Jeremy McMurrin said of the win which improved Solon’s record to 13-2. The Spartans had already taken co-champion status in the East Division of the WaMaC, and were ranked fourth in Class 1A heading toward post-season play.
