The Game Time league opened Wednesday, June 22, in North Liberty and it was nice to see the five new Iowa recruits in action.
The very first game had Bethany Doolittle, a 6-3 center from Minnesota, going up Morgan Johnson, a 6-5 starter the last two seasons at center.
Bethany actually held her own against Morgan. She was 7-10 from the floor and hit a 3-pointer to help her team to an 85-61 win.

Fox Ridge friends come together in Solon

By Stephen Schmidt
Solon Economist
SOLON– It was all started by one innocent Fourth of July picnic.
Last year, Kathy Borowski, a resident of the Fox Ridge housing development who moved to Solon with her husband to be closer to her family, decided to get to know her neighbors a bit better by organizing a picnic on the Fourth of July.
As the fiesta commenced, Borowski and the others noticed that most of her neighbors shared an interesting connection: all of them had also moved to Solon from somewhere else in Iowa to be closer to their families.

PNE to build Solon support center for wind farm

SOLON– Officials from PNE WIND USA Inc (PNE), based in Chicago, have announced plans to locate an operations and maintenance center in Solon.  This new facility would support a planned 3,000-acre, 30-megawatt wind farm which was announced in February.
The project is contingent upon Johnson County passing a new land use ordinance for wind farms specific to how and where wind turbines can be sited in the county.

Solon council leans toward Brosh building

SOLON– It’s narrowed down to one choice.
If there’s going to be a new city hall anytime soon, it’s either going to be the Brosh Chapel and Community Center or nothing.
At a special meeting last week, Solon City Council members decided against considering the Solon Public Library as a potential city hall site and continued discussions about the possible purchase of the Brosh location.

Lakeview furniture coming from Prison Industries

SOLON-Lakeview Elementary School is set to receive furniture from a rather popular manufacturer: Iowa Prison Industries.

As planned, Iowa Prison Industries will build items that include a Madison chair lounge, an oak library table and bookcases for Lakeview’s media center. The project is funded by the Physical Plant and Equipment Levy, said Board President Dave Asprey.
