Free Christmas Meal at Our Lord’s Church

SOLON– Our Lord’s Church will be serving a free Christmas meal Tuesday, Dec. 25. All are welcome. Reservations are not required but would be helpful. The meal will be served at noon at the church, 131 N. Market St., Solon. Rides and deliveries are also available. Call Duane and Anna at 841-2243 (a local call from Solon) with questions or reservations.

Solon takes down Maquoketa and Anamosa, remains undefeated

ANAMOSA– So far, so good.
The Solon Spartans remained undefeated in the young varsity basketball season last week, capturing wins on the road at Maquoketa and Anamosa, and entering the Associated Press high school poll, ranked No. 4 in Class 3A.
After two lopsided wins to start the season, the Spartans moved to 4-0 against an always pesky Maquoketa team and a surprising Anamosa squad.
“I like where we’re at,” said head coach Brad Randall. Solon has had four of its first five games on the road, and if the Spartans can win Tuesday at Central DeWitt, seven of the next nine will be at home.

Solon Lady Spartans handle Maquoketa, Anamosa

SOLON– After a 1-2 start, the Solon Lady Spartans have reeled off three straight wins.
Solon’s varsity girls hosted Maquoketa and Anamosa last week, outscoring their opponents 123-63.
After Tuesday’s home game against Central DeWitt, however, it’s five straight on the road, including a Dec. 18 matchup with No. 9 Western Dubuque.
“I am pleased with the progress of the team at this point in the season,” first-year head coach Tony Nicol said. “The transition into my system has gone more smoothly than I had expected.”

Historic Dillon’s Furrow marked in Solon

SOLON– History was marked in Solon on Sunday, Nov. 25, when a plaque was set next to Highway 1 on Main Street. The marker recognizes a point in time along the line that 173 years ago was known as the new military road from Iowa City to Dubuque.
It was built for $20,000 and, after surveying, was plowed by Lyman Dillon, of Cascade. Dillon, 39 years old and born in Utica, N.Y., was single and the owner of a saw mill.

NL's diamonds under pressure

NORTH LIBERTY– North Liberty’s comprehensive plan for developing its city parks has been in place since 2009, but increasing demand for organized recreation has kicked it into high gear.
The North Liberty City Council and the city’s parks and recreation commission met jointly last Thursday, Dec. 6, to talk about plans for two of the city’s major park spaces: one of the oldest of the community’s parks, and the newest to date.

Warriors edge out Women of Troy

IOWA CITY– Maybe if they’d just had a few more minutes to play.
Time was not on the Women of Troy’s side Friday night as both the sophomore and varsity squads came up short despite fourth-quarter rallies. The sophomores trailed most of the game, put up a fierce fight in the fourth, and fell, 39-34. Jessie Harder led the sophs with an 18-point effort.

Clipper boys fall to Vinton-Shellsburg Vikings

TIFFIN– The Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers fell to 1-2 overall and 0-2 in the WaMaC Tuesday night after the Vinton-Shellsburg Vikings came to town, sacking and looting for an 83-57 win.
A Tony Pederson 3-pointer gave CCA a 10-9 lead in the first period, the only Clipper lead of the night. The Vikings took the quarter 17-10 and never looked back as the Clippers struggled to maintain possession of the ball.
A salvo of 3-pointers by Mitch Stopko, Konrad Moore and Kam Kahler in the second period helped the Clipper cause, but the home team still lagged behind 38-21 at the half.
