Fesler makes bid for supervisory seat

By Lori Lindner
North Liberty Leader
JOHNSON COUNTY– Dave Fesler doesn’t present himself as a belonging to any politician’s club.
He doesn’t offer pat answers, doesn’t ask to go off record– at least, not during the interview for this newspaper– and he doesn’t have a campaign manager. He expects to get elected not with the backing of an established party and its accompanying resources, but through good, old-fashioned neighborhood canvassing.

A plea for paving

TIFFIN– The Bella Sala (which translates to “beautiful room”) reception and banquet facility opened on Jasper Avenue in Tiffin in 2010 and has since become a popular venue for weddings, fundraisers and corporate events. Bella Sala owners Melissa Fontanini and Lyndsie Schnoor brought two not-so-beautiful issues to the Tiffin City Council at its Wednesday, Sept. 26, council meeting.
Citing a misunderstanding, Fontanini reminded the council of the history of Bella Sala’s two-year tax abatement.

Penn Street Overlay District may get overhaul

NORTH LIBERTY– A proposed change to zoning requirements for development along North Liberty’s Penn Street won’t have to wait through three readings for approval.
Therefore, one developer with plans to expand his business there can move forward with his project.
The North Liberty City Council was asked to approve changes to the Penn Street Overlay District section of the code last Tuesday, Sept. 24, and to condense all three readings into one.

Methodist family meals start Oct. 3

SOLON– The annual Wednesday night meals will begin at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 3, at the Solon United Methodist Church, 122 N. West St. Solon. Their purpose is to give families and community members an opportunity to build friendships and ensure no one must eat alone. United Methodist men will barbecue hot dogs and hamburgers. Other diners may bring a covered dish or dessert. Monetary donations are also accepted. Dave and Carol Richards will spearhead the 2012-2013 family meals. All Solon community members are invited to participate.

Cross Country girls take title at Williamsburg invitational

WILLIAMSBURG– The scoring was as easy as one-two-three at the Sept. 25 Williamsburg cross country invitational. Spartan black came across first, second and third in the girls’ 4-kilometer race. With the rest of the varsity crowded into the top 12, Solon ran away with the team title.
Lauren Benzing was first across (15:22) the finish line. Alex Smith, who has pushed into the top three or four in most meets this season, took it up a notch, grabbing meet runner-up honors (15:59) with Mallory Carr (16:10) a few strides behind in third.

Lady Spartans sweep Anamosa, host West Delaware Thursday

ANAMOSA– Solon’s Lady Spartans did what they were supposed to do.
The varsity volleyball squad had a single match and no tournaments scheduled last week, traveling only to Anamosa for a 3-0 conference win.
Solon defeated Anamosa 25-12, 25-7, 25-12 to move to 17-3 on the season.
“Jordan Runge swung really well, and our serving game took them out of the match from the start,” reported head coach Peter Gustin.

Running away

ANAMOSA– It was all Solon.
The Solon varsity football team’s offense scored 49 points in the first half and the defense held the Anamosa Raiders scoreless in a 56-0 win Friday night.
The only statistic that was close was the number of plays run– 47 for Anamosa, 46 for Solon.
The rest was the Spartans’ first defensive shut-out of the season, and a runaway win against a winless team.
Solon rolled up 424 yards of total offense, 235 on the ground and 189 through the air. Seven different Spartans scored touchdowns, three passing, five rushing.
