Spartans escape

SOLON– The first half was business as usual.
The second half wasn’t.
Senior quarterback J.J.Hanus scrambled for a 48-yard touchdown with less than a minute to go to salvage a 28-21 victory over the Central DeWitt Sabres in the season opener for the Solon varsity football team Friday night at Spartan Stadium.
Solon scored 14 unanswered points in the first quarter and the Spartan faithful were feeling pretty comfortable.

Spartans sweep CCA on opening night

SOLON– But for one game, the 2011 season opener last Thursday night pitting the Lady Spartans against the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers would’ve been perfect.
Solon’s freshmen won 25-22 and 25-22, the sophomores won 25-17 and 25-9; and the JV squad prevailed 25-21 and 25-12. The marquee match-up put the varsity squads in action with Solon reigning 3-1.

Cross country squads tackle Prairie meet

CEDAR RAPIDS– The crowded Prairie High campus looked more like a county fair than a cross country meet Saturday, Aug. 27. The mega-meet was the season opener for two dozen high school teams. And the multi-class scoring format worked well for Solon. The Spartan girls won all three levels– varsity, junior varsity and freshman-sophomore– in the Class 3A division and Lauren Benzing added the overall individual title. The boys grabbed first in their JV and fresh-soph divisions.

North Liberty Leader
NORTH LIBERTY– Now appearing in the national who’s who, what and where of America’s best small cities: North Liberty, Iowa.
North Liberty ranked 74th on CNN Money Magazine’s 2011 list of 100 Best Places To Live.
It’s not just a feel-good sobriquet; there are, in fact, actual statistics and a step-by-step formula for skimming down from the nation’s approximately 30,000 incorporated cities to find the crème de la communities.

Golf cart ordinance no hole-in-one

NORTH LIBERTY– Looking for a fuel-efficient way to tool around North Liberty?
Don’t buy a golf cart just yet.
The North Liberty City Council put off the first reading of an ordinance that would allow golf carts to be driven on city streets, last Tuesday, Aug. 23.
They just aren’t completely sold on the idea.
In April, a resident of Goose Lake Circle requested that council consider allowing golf carts to be street legal. At that time, the council directed city staff to review what other cities had on the books for golf cart use in town.
