Burning passion to serve

ELY– For 35 years, when the fire phone or pager would signal an emergency in Ely, volunteer firefighter Jim Miller would respond. At the age of 79, like the fire horse of old, he still turns out when the alarm sounds.
And he’s not going away anytime soon if he can help it.
“I told them I’ll quit when they carry me out or throw me out, and I’m sticking to it,” Miller said.

Gerdin family grants $400k to OEC

SOLON– The Gerdin Family Foundation has pledged to donate $400,000 toward the completion of the Solon school district’s Outdoor Events Center (OEC).
“Last month, the Gerdin family donated new lighting at Solon Middle School gymnasium and with the announcement of this large donation, they continue to show they are major supporters of the Solon Community School District,” said School Superintendent Sam Miller, adding, “the Gerdin donation may allow the district to complete the OEC.”

Solon veteran gives presentation during Veterans Day dinner

NORTH LIBERTY– Veterans Day was declared a national holiday- originally Armistice Day- in 1919, to mark the signing of the agreement that ended WWI.
But for veterans of war, it is never over.
Even those who serve in our nation’s military in times of peace know loss, hardship, and the strength of a fraternity that no amount of time or separation can weaken.
That familiarity with sacrifice was evident during the North Liberty American Legion Auxiliary’s annual Veterans Day dinner, held Nov. 15 at the South Slope Community Room in North Liberty.
Also evident was gratitude.

Site for food pantry sought

SOLON– Local families in need may soon find help by way of a planned food pantry in Solon.
The Crisis Center of Johnson County is teaming with Solon Senior Advocates, Our Lord’s Church, St. Mary Catholic Church, and Solon Methodist Church to establish a Solon food pantry that will also serve the greater north Johnson County area.
Solon Senior Advocates President Sandy Hanson said the Crisis Center will provide the framework for the Solon pantry, so the group isn’t starting from scratch.
The Crisis Center is offering technical support and guidance.
