Honor Tour overwhelms Solon WW II veteran

RURAL SOLON– Thank you. Two words which often seem insignificant, or are casually tossed about. But, to a veteran, they can be overwhelming when offered with sincerity.

Hawk Talk

Chris Street remembered

I doesn’t seem like it was 20 years ago last Saturday that Chris Street died in an auto accident.
The Hawkeyes honored Chris by beating Wisconsin, the only undefeated team left in the Big Ten, 70-66, before a jam-packed, very loud and excited crowd.
I remember that night of the accident 20 years ago as I was sitting at home watching TV around 7:30 p.m.
I got a call from Deanna Slade, who was a neighbor of mine.
Deanna asked me, “Is there a football player named Chris Street?”
I said, “No, he plays basketball.”
