School supply fundraiser in progress through August

JOHNSON COUNTY– Imagine starting school without a pencil or a package of markers like all of the other kids have. For some children in Johnson County, the first day of school is yet another reminder that they don’t have all the tools they need to succeed.
Forever Green Garden Center, 125 Forevergreen Rd., Coralville, will donate 10 percent of the proceeds from the sale of plants from Aug. 1-15 to ToGather Together to purchase school supplies for students in need in Johnson County.

Food For Thought

My dad’s father had died quite young of tuberculosis, soon after my dad graduated from high school. An immigrant from Norway, as a young man it seems he had been a bit of a dreamer; poetic, musical, a man who made violins as a hobby, and was the only photographer in the small Wisconsin town where my father grew up. He and my grandmother ran a grocery store with the help of their children. A large photo portrait of a handsome but sober-faced man was all I knew of my Grandpa Hanson.

Walkin'

This time of year Buzz, my 12-year-old hound, likes to spend the last few minutes of the night in the backyard barking at nothing in particular.

Solon council: Main Street site too costly

SOLON– It took only a week for the members of the Solon City Council to decide against pursuing a recently-available Main Street location.
After independently visiting the location, 100 W. Main St., and having the city engineer and building inspector do the same, council members determined renovation costs and other concerns have ruled out the building known as the “Candy Store” as a possible city hall site.
After learning that estimated renovation costs could be as high as a half-million dollars, council members decided during a special session last week they would pass on the property.
