Walkin'

This past year I began cutting back on substitute teaching.
Subbing in the junior or senior high schools is easy enough: take attendance and play the video. Subbing in the elementary grades, however, can be as enjoyable as nicking yourself while shaving and then going for a swim in piranha-infested waters.

Hawk Talk

By Don Lund
Sports Writer
I went to the College Football Hall of Fame about 10 years ago and thought it would be fun to check out the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
I’ve been planning the road trip to Canton, Ohio, for a few years and a couple of weeks ago finally pulled the trigger.
Two of my homeboys, Tim Nolte and Kirk Neustrom, loaded up my car with refreshments, reading material and tunes on Sunday, June 5, and hit the road. It was a 590-mile, nine-hour journey. It probably would have been eight hours except for the road construction in Illinois (not one of our favorite states).

Joette Meyer:<i> A beautiful send-off</i>

“Late in August, it’s going to hit me that I’m not going back,” Meyer said of retiring from the Solon Community School District in May after 37 years of teaching local kids.
Meyer, 60, spent all but one of her 38 years in education in the Solon district.
A native of the Solon/Iowa City area, she attended country school for a few years before she and a relative were moved to the Solon district by their respective parents.
