Turkey to Table for Solon families

SOLON– The Solon Community Pantry is organizing a “Turkey to Table,” ready-to-cook Thanksgiving dinner to be delivered to area families who might not otherwise have a Thanksgiving meal.
Families who are unable to attend Our Lord’s Church free Thanksgiving meal may call 319-430-8655 or 319-333-5037 to arrange for a meal that will contain a frozen 8-10 pound turkey or larger plus all the fixings for a holiday meal. The meals will be delivered to homes Tuesday, Nov. 20.

Solon’s first Habitat house becomes a home

SOLON– “You know, think what this lot looked like, even six months ago,” said Pastor Carol Kress of the Solon United Methodist Church. “Pretty darn amazing.”
Kress, Pastor Dennis Arnold of Our Lord’s Church and Father Jim Vrba of St. Mary Catholic Church led the blessing of the new Solon Habitat for Humanity house. The Dubuque Street house was dedicated Tuesday, Oct. 23, and the keys were ceremoniously presented to the new owners, Kurt and Vicki Shover, and their son Chanse.

With 120th Street done, what’s next?

SHUEYVILLE– “It’s nearly complete,” said Dave Schechinger of Veenstra & Kimm, Inc. about the 120th Street reconstruction project through Shueyville. Schechinger’s comments came during the Tuesday, Oct. 9, city council meeting, a joint meeting held with the Johnson County Board of Supervisors.
Supervisors Pat Harney, Rod Sullivan, Sally Stutsman, Janelle Rettig and Terrance Neuzil met with the council to learn first hand what issues are prevalent in the community.

Hawk Talk

I’m not into moral victories and I’m not sure that Iowa’s loss, 28-17, Saturday would even seem like a moral victory.
At least Iowa still had a chance in the middle of the fourth quarter, down 28-17 with the ball at midfield and over four minutes left in the game.
Almost all of the preseason magazines, the Big Ten media and the ESPN football guys picked Iowa to finish in the bottom half of the Legends division.
The scary part of all that is sometimes those guys are right.
Before the season I thought the Iowa State and Northwestern games were tossups and Iowa lost both.
