By Doug Lindner

Why not Solon?

“I’ve raised chickens the last four years, and I’d like to continue to do that in Solon,” Kober told council members. He asked what could possibly be done to allow backyard chickens within the Solon city limits.

Solon schools lunchrooms to serve local farm food

SOLON– Corn means something more to us here in Iowa, and nothing shows it off better than events like the corn-shucking party at Solon High School Aug. 25.
The party, which ended when the work was done, was expected to take place from 2 until 5 p.m. Surprisingly, though, it finished an hour and a half after the fun started. The corn was served to students during the first week of school during lunch.
“It was great to see everybody working together,” Laurie Broghammer said as she cleaned up the last bits of corn from the cafeteria kitchen.

Hawk Talk

By Don Lund
Sports Writer

A win is a win, but when you have a team down 21-0, like Iowa had the Missouri State Bears, you want to put the pedal to the metal and blow them out.
I would have liked to see C.J. Beathard or Cody Sokol get some snaps at quarterback, but Missouri State had other ideas.
The Bears scored a touchdown pass with 14:25 left in the game.
Ten seconds later, they intercepted a pass and went 28 yards for the score.
I was stunned! What could have been a rout turned into a tight game.
