City’s fourth well to come to the rescue soon

SOLON– One big shock to the system and hopefully all will be well.
The city’s fourth well will be put into production soon, if a large-dose shock chlorination treatment does what it’s expected to do.
Well No. 4 was substantially completed in February 2011, but delays in the construction of an associated project have kept it on the shelf, allowing bacteria to breed.
The bacteria do not present a health issue, according to Solon Public Works Director Scott Kleppe, but have created an odor.
“The water’s fine,” Kleppe said, “it just stinks.”

From the Oprah Book Club comes, “Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail” by Cheryl Strayed. “Wild” is the story of an eleven-hundred-mile solo hike that broke down a young woman reeling from catastrophe and built her back up again. “Wild” captures the terrors and pleasures as Strayed forges ahead against all odds. “Rather Outspoken:

Customize school district notification system preferences

The Solon Community School District’s primary method to report school closings and delays is local television (KCRG, KGAN, and KWWL) and radio station (WMT, KHAK, KDAT, KRNA, KZIA, and KCJJ) announcements. The School Messenger Notification System is a secondary public announcement that delivers personalized phone, text message and/or e-mail messages to parents, staff or other groups via home, office and or cell phones.

PowerSchool e-registration

For the 2012-2013 school year, Solon Community Schools will be once again be using an e-registration process accessible through PowerSchool.

Parents of incoming preschool and Kindergarten students will be mailed access IDs and passwords in early June. We are encouraging all families to use e-registration, therefore we will be setting up computers at the central office to assist families with completing e-registration.

School Calendar

Pesky Solon nettling ranked teams

SOLON– After what seems like a month on the road, the Solon varsity softball team returns home this week.
The last home game for the Lady Spartans was June 4.
Since then, the squad has been taking on the best teams in the state with mostly successful results. In the last week alone, Solon played the No. 6 team in Class 5A (Ottumwa), the No. 1 team in 4A (Clear Creek Amana) and the No. 4 team in Class 3A (Mid-Prairie), losing only to CCA as part of a four-game weekend at the CCA’s tournament in Tiffin.

Spartans lose heartbreaker to CR Jeff

DAVENPORT– It was another week of hard lessons for the Solon varsity baseball team.
The Spartans went 2-4 over the last seven days on the road, sweeping a doubleheader from Vinton-Shellsburg, but losing a heartbreaker in extra innings to Cedar Rapids Jefferson.
The good news is that the offense has been coming to life– Solon scored fewer than five runs in only one of the games and scored in double-digits twice.
But wins have continued to be a premium.
