Finding clarity in a new company

SOLON– Isaac Russell was underemployed when he moved back to Iowa after many years in New York and California.
His family helped him out with some work, and Isaac with his wife, Daisy, tried freelance sign language interpreting, something they’d done for many years on both coasts.
Then Isaac decided to take matters into his own hands.
He’d always wanted to start a business. In 2009, he said, “I’m going to give it a shot.”
He set up a window-washing business by late 2009 and started calling on potential commercial clients that winter.

Skilled care facility open house July 18

SOLON– The Solon Retirement Village has announced the opening of its dedicated skilled/acute care building and therapy center for Tuesday, July 24, the newest addition to the retirement campus. An open house for the general public will be held Wednesday, July 18, from 5 until 7 p.m. The skilled/acute care area will accommodate 13 individuals with needs for short-term skilled care in an addition constructed on the southeast side of the Solon Nursing Care Center. The campus received approval from the state to add these skilled beds last November.

Reality check

IOWA CITY– In November, Johnson County voters will see a bond referendum on the ballot to fund a new criminal justice center to replace the existing sheriff’s office, jail and courthouse. The board of supervisors will be asking the taxpayers for $46.8 million while dipping into reserves for the balance of the $4.8 million (estimated) project.
As part of a campaign to make the case for the new combined facility, the board arranged a tour of the jail and courthouse for the quarterly meeting of local governments, held June 20 in Iowa City. Supervisor Rod Sullivan explained why.
