Another building fills up

OXFORD– The space crunch in the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) school district is now squeezing Clear Creek Elementary in Oxford.
At their regular meeting on Oct. 17, the CCA board of directors approved invoking the district’s insufficient space policy for the aging building.

The Black Amgel:portent of doom, subject of movie

IOWA CITY– She reigns silently over a set of graves in the midst of an Iowa City cemetery. She is both alluring and formidable, dreaded and loved, world-renowned and yet forever shrouded in dark mystery.
The Black Angel of Iowa City’s Oakland Cemetery is now the subject of an artistic collaboration between past Solon High School graduates Travis Drahozal and Jordan Kessler.
Like Iowa City’s notable urban legend, the pair’s “Black Angel Movie” is also a study in contrasts. Part documentary and part horror movie, Drahozal said the Black Angel was a perfect subject for this latest venture.

Benzing runs final cross country race for Solon

For three seasons, it has seemed automatic. Lauren Benzing. Cross Country meet? First place. Through three seasons (she played volleyball as a freshman) the Solon senior was first in every regular season and state qualifying meet. Add to that a state title in 2010 and a state runner-up finish in 2011…. and the stage was set for this year.

Shaking off the rust

VICTOR– The Lady Spartans have their chance to play for a state tournament berth.
Solon’s varsity volleyball team advanced in the Class 4A regionals with a 3-1 win over Pella Thursday (Oct. 25) in Victor.
The Lady Spartans lost the first game 23-25, but stormed back to capture the next three, 25-19, 25-11, 25-12.

Spartans out

Solon scored the first three points, but the next 35 points came from No. 1 Decorah in Monday night’s second round game in the Class 3A playoffs. The Spartans took the opening kickoff and scored a field goal, but the Vikings went on to score 35 unanswered points on the way to a 35-10 win, bouncing Solon from the football postseason.

Solon controls Cadets

SOLON– There was plenty of time on the clock and the Crestwood Cadets had put together a drive.
Solon, having built a 21-7 lead in the first half, had just missed a field goal, and Crestwood had taken over on their 20 and marched (aided by a 15-yard Solon late hit) to Solon’s 20.
A touchdown would make it a one-score game with almost 10 minutes left.
Crestwood quarterback Kolter Friedhof went deep twice, looking for receiver Spencer Bohr against Solon’s Chris McNutt (a match-up that worked well on a long hook-up earlier in the game), with no success.

Fourth at state for Lady Spartans

FT. DODGE– Solon outran two teams it needed to beat but saw a couple new threats rise on their way to fourth place in the 2012 Class 3A girls’ cross country meet Oct. 27 at Fort Dodge.
Ranked fourth for much of the season, the Spartans matched that ranking, with senior Lauren Benzing taking individual runner-up honors among the 126 girls in the field.

Early out movie, Thursday, Nov. 1

The next early out program will be on Thursday, Nov. 1, with the showing of the movie, “Pirates: Band of Misfits” (PG) which is 88 minutes long. Movie time will be from 1 until 3 p.m.
Movies are shown in the meeting room and most attendees prefer to sit on the floor. The library does have a few bean bag chairs but not enough for everyone. Kids are more than welcome to bring in pillows or comfy seat-like things of their own for early out movies.
