September 18th

Main Street may lack holiday decorations

SOLON– Solon’s Main Street may not look quite as festive this holiday season.
The Christmas decorations traditionally attached to utility poles on Solon’s main thoroughfares are apparently not compatible with the period lighting being added as part of a Main Street reconstruction project.
As a result, there may be no holiday lights hanging around downtown.
Members of the Solon City Council discussed the pending problem at a special meeting Aug. 29, but no solution was reached.

Solon department’s new fire engine due next spring

By Chris Umscheid
Solon Economist

Asbestos removal next for new city hall project

SOLON– It might be a while before Solon’s new city hall takes shape.
The City of Solon took possession of 100 W. Main St. in July, intending to convert the two-story location formerly known as the Candy Store into city offices and council chambers.
Asbestos removal has been scheduled for the beginning of October, but council members are in no hurry to rush the project.

Dedication of Ciha Fen Sept. 22

SOLON– The Johnson County Conservation Board (JCCB) is excited to announce the celebration of one of its crowning achievements in conservation– the acquisition of the Ciha Fen Preserve. On Saturday, Sept. 22, the JCCB will be hosting a public dedication to celebrate the protection of this rare natural area which was purchased with funds from the Iowa DNR Resource Enhancement and Protection (REAP) cost-share grant and Johnson County Conservation Bond funds. The celebration will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Ciha Fen Preserve, which is located at 5656 145th St. NE, Lisbon.

Hawk Talk

Iowa 27 / UNI 16

One of the great things about following college football (or pro football) is that it only happens once a week.
If your team wins (like the Hawkeyes) you have all week to enjoy the victory, watch the replay of the game  (if you tape it like me) and break down the win.
The dark side is if you lose, you have a whole week of some sport writers ripping the Hawks, the message boards ready to fire every coach and a long week to deal with the negatives.
It’s even worse when your pro team (Da Bears) loses like they did to the Packers Thursday.
