Construction begins next week on Highway 1

SOLON– The summer of construction for Solon residents begins next week.
The city’s two major infrastructure improvement projects for 2012– Highway 1’s intersection with 5th Street, and a facelift for Main Street– have been awarded to contractors.
Construction on the Highway 1 intersection is slated to begin June 20 with substantial completion by mid-August, while no schedule has been set for the Main Street streetscape project.
For Solon residents, both will present difficulties over a good part of the summer, with the Main Street overhaul stretching into the fall.

Harvesting agricultural education from Lakeview teaching garden

SOLON– With a grant from the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS), Solon school nutrition director Kelly Crossley and the Lakeview PTO have teamed up to bring students the freshest produce you can get.
On five raised beds on the primary school’s campus, five classes and one preschool class planted carrots, onions, peppers, tomatoes and more on May 15.
“These beds are meant to be primarily a teaching tool for the classroom,” Crossley said, adding her biggest concern was watering the garden during a dry spring.

PET SERVICES

Lonnie Olson

Lonnie Olson (Mrs. Bill Olson) passed away quietly and before her time, in Haines City, Fla. late last month. Lonnie was a good friend and wonderful neighbor to many of us in the Solon area. While she was gone before most of us knew the details and could express our sympathy, we have found many of us would like to have some kind of memorial for her in lieu of flowers. Sadly, the Olson’s lost their oldest son, Tim, some years back, and a tree was planted in his honor near the School’s Sports Center.

Sara Myrick

Sara Stimmel Myrick, 60, of Solon, died unexpectedly on Saturday, June 2, 2012. Funeral Services were held June 7 at Lensing Funeral Home. Private family burial followed the service. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be directed to Friends of the Animals, PO Box 383, 320 W. 6th St., Tipton, IA 52772.
