Citizens fume over planned burn days

SOLON– The city fanned the flames last week.
Arguments for and against a proposed burn ban heated up at Wednesday night’s regular city council meeting.
By the end, three council members agreed to look at the next step– restricting the open burning of residential yard waste to certain established dates– and possible dates will be discussed at a March 21 session.
The action came despite a petition signed by 62 residents asking the council to refrain until a special committee could consider the issue.

Emily Wears wins Colorado’s auctioneer championship

DENVER, Colo.— History was made in January as Solon native Emily Wears became the first woman to be named the Colorado Auctioneers Association Bid Calling Champion.

Growing up in the auction business– Brent has owned Wears Auctioneering for 30 years– made an early impression on Emily, as she started working auctions at the age of 10, handling clerking duties.
