August 20th

ICCSD’s Ehly named 2012 Iowa Talented and Gifted administrator of the year

IOWA CITY– Pam Ehly, director of instruction for the Iowa City Community School District (ICCSD), has been honored as the 2012 Iowa Talented and Gifted (ITAG) administrator of the year. The announcement was made to the ICCSD school board on Aug. 7. Recognition was also given at the ITAG booth at the School Administrators’ of Iowa Convention in Des Moines. In October, Ms. Ehly will receive formal recognition at the ITAG state conference in Des Moines.

Focused on service

NORTH LIBERTY– It’s all about you.
At Blink Vision by Veatch, Dr. Ryan Veatch and his staff are committed to providing every patient an exceptional experience. And they have an exceptional facility in which to do just that.
Dr. Veatch opened the doors to his new office earlier this summer in the StoneBridge Promenade, a commercial development he also owns. From the upscale stone façade outside to the meticulously assembled woodwork inside, everything about Blink Vision by Veatch attests to attention to detail and precision.

A Promenade of prominence

NORTH LIBERTY– In the 1989 movie Field of Dreams, the phrase “if you build it, they will come” was coined. In 2011 Dr. Ryan Veatch said to himself, “If you build something nice, hopefully people will notice and come to it.”
An optometrist by trade, and owner of Blink Vision by Veatch, Dr. Veatch’s vision transformed a vacant parcel of land at the corner of Hwy. 965 and West Cherry St. in North Liberty into a thriving and upscale commercial development. Construction on StoneBridge Promenade began in the fall of 2011, and businesses began opening their doors this spring.

Ely Fire Dept. hosts Waterball Fights

ELY– For as long as there have been firefighters, there has been competition between fire companies. In the earliest days of organized departments, fist fights often broke out between competing companies to see who would put out the fire. Later firefighters would square-off in contests such as working hand-powered pumpers to see who could shoot a stream of water the furthest.
Then came waterball fights.

JC Heritage Trust calls for public comment

JOHNSON COUNTY– Land trusts are organizations that protect natural areas and preserve land for public use, and Johnson County Heritage Trust has been carrying out that mission in Johnson County since 1978. With the support of generous donors and members, Johnson County Heritage Trust (JCHT) has helped set aside eight local natural areas for the enjoyment and education of the public, and holds conservation easements on eleven properties to help sustain the county’s prairies, woodlands, wetlands and sites of historic or scenic interest.

Movie Clips

The computer glitch from the week of Aug. 6 has the staff a little behind in cataloging, so there’s only one new movie this week, and since it’s an animated title, here are three other older animated films that you’ll love to watch again or watch for the first time. The kids will love them, but adults will too. All are rated PG.

September Book Club selection

The September selection for the Solon Area Book Club is “Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal,” by Christopher Moore. This divinely hilarious yet heartfelt work is reminiscent of Vonnegut and Douglas Adams. No one knows about the early life of the Son of God except Biff, the Messiah’s best bud, who proceeds to tell the story.
