Cornering the art market

By Lori Lindner
Solon Economist
ELY– A new art gallery and studio in Ely offers not just space for art, but a place where artistic spirits can soar.
It’s not entirely a new gallery; Ely Corner Art Studio and Gallery is a reincarnation of a dream.
The Shueyville Art Gallery opened just one year ago, at the crossroads in the center of the small Iowa community. The vision of Hal Hart, musician and abstract artist from Cedar Rapids, he created the gallery as a beautiful and welcoming space for regional artists to showcase their work.

Most wins EVER

SOLON– The Lady Spartans gutted out a nail-biter against West Delaware last week to capture the WaMaC Tournament championship and move to 29-1 for the season.
According to Head Coach Kurt Trout, it’s the most wins in a season for a Solon varsity volleyball squad.
The Lady Spartans swept to the tourney title by defeating Central DeWitt, Benton Community and Waterloo Columbus at home Tuesday during pool play; then besting Western Dubuque and Marion in the championship bracket before a title tilt rematch with West Delaware.

Spartans hang on against Washington

SOLON– A win is a win.
The Solon Spartans rode workhorse Cody Fritz and his 165 rushing yards to a narrow 21-19 victory Friday night at home against visiting Washington.
Fritz scored once and quarterback J.J. Hanus broke the plane twice, with all three touchdowns coming in the first half, and the Solon defense held off Washington in the second half for the win.
Colton Dall recovered one fumble and intercepted Washington’s Jake Redlinger twice, the second ending the Demons’ fourth-quarter attempt to steal a win.

Girls win WaMaC; boys take third

MOUNT VERNON– A warm, windy day… a fast start… and another cross country title for Solon’s girls. It was a two-team race at the WaMaC meet Oct. 13 in Mount Vernon. Solon grabbed three of the top eight spots in the 93-runner field to hold off Williamsburg, which used better finishes from its four and five runners to stay close. It was the first conference title for Solon since 1997, when it took the EIHC crown… also in Mount Vernon.

Pack attack gets boys third at conference

MOUNT VERNON– Solon’s pack attack is picking up momentum. The boys finished third in the WaMaC cross country meet last week, with their aim now on Thursday’s state qualifying race.
