Kenneth Kelchen

Kenneth G. Kelchen, 63, of Dyersville, died Saturday, March 17, 2012, at his residence after a brief but courageous bout with cancer. Mass of Christian burial was held March 21 at St. Francis Xavier Basilica, with burial in St. Paul’s Cemetery, Worthington. The Rev. Dennis Quint officiated.

Hawk Talk

Basketball and wrestling seasons are over so it’s time for some spring football.
Kirk Ferentz had his first press conference for spring football last week and he talked about the energy the new football coaches brought to the program.
The next couple of weeks I’ll break down the offense, defense and special teams.
This week I’ll talk about the offensive line, tight ends and fullbacks.
I like to start with the O-line because for most programs, including Iowa, the line is a big reason you win or lose.

CHILD CARE

Old Creamery visits Lakeview

SOLON– Crayons that talk, monkeys working in a smoothie shop, and bottles of soda that can’t get along with cans from another pop machine.
Whirl them all together and you’ve got “The Very Best Me,” an original musical comedy with a message performed by the Old Creamery Theatre for Young Audiences’ touring cast.
Students at Lakeview Elementary were again treated to one of the troupe’s 2012 performances last week.

Burning to be resticted, not banned

SOLON– An ordinance revision to seasonally restrict the burning of landscape waste will come before the Solon City Council at an April 4 meeting.
Council members last week endorsed a proposal limiting burning to three days a week between April 1 through May 25 and Oct. 1 through Nov. 25. If adopted by the council, residents would be allowed to burn plant material generated on their property on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. during those periods.
And that may be as far as it goes, at least for a while.

Judge allows Coralville to proceed with Von Maur project

IOWA CITY– A district court judge has ruled that Coralville may proceed with a multi-million dollar economic development deal, at least for now.
Plaintiffs in a March 1 petition had asked the court for a temporary injunction to halt the City of Coralville’s proposed land sale to Von Maur department store. The deal would give Von Maur an estimated $14 million in incentives to relocate from Sycamore Mall to Coralville’s Iowa River Landing (IRL) area, paid for through Tax Increment Financing (TIF).
