Prep work on local landmark underway

SUTLIFF– A diesel crane lifted a steel column into the air and set it upright in the murky waters of the Cedar River. With a pile driver attached, and a man in full-body harness and with fall protection in place hanging on the side; the crane operator rhythmically pounded the column into the river bed.

District ‘hiring for fit’ at Lakeview, middle school

SOLON– The board of directors for the Solon Community School District last month expanded the job search for guidance counselors at Lakeview and Solon Middle School. In the job description, the “guidance counselor or other” job title was changed to include an option for a facilitator with an administrative degree.
Many see the new positions as a step away from having assistant principals in the two Solon schools.
Tony Nicol will fill the position at the middle school and Lori Grimoskas will start at Lakeview in 2012-2013.

Hue Hill Farms: Locavorists thriving in corridor

MORSE– Many in the Iowa City-Cedar Rapids corridor know locavore numbers are growing. A locavore, for those not familiar with the Oxford American Dictionary’s 2007 word of the year, is someone who eats locally-grown food.

Our Lord’s Church July 4 sale

Garbage pickup not affected by Fourth of July holiday

Garbage and recycling pick-up for residents of Solon will remain the same for the week of the Independence Day holiday. Curbside collection will be Friday, July 6.

City’s fourth well to come to the rescue soon

SOLON– One big shock to the system and hopefully all will be well.
The city’s fourth well will be put into production soon, if a large-dose shock chlorination treatment does what it’s expected to do.
Well No. 4 was substantially completed in February 2011, but delays in the construction of an associated project have kept it on the shelf, allowing bacteria to breed.
The bacteria do not present a health issue, according to Solon Public Works Director Scott Kleppe, but have created an odor.
“The water’s fine,” Kleppe said, “it just stinks.”

Sign up now for July Brad Randall Youth Spartan basketball camp

From the Oprah Book Club comes, “Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail” by Cheryl Strayed. “Wild” is the story of an eleven-hundred-mile solo hike that broke down a young woman reeling from catastrophe and built her back up again. “Wild” captures the terrors and pleasures as Strayed forges ahead against all odds. “Rather Outspoken:
