Calendar conundrum

SOLON– For one Solon family, the committee responsible for setting Solon’s academic schedule has graced them with a difficult decision.
Though Lisa and Jeff Kaefring were forced to pick between attending the May 20 graduations of their son Adam– honors student and speaker for Mount Mercy University’s 2012 commencement exercises– and their daughter Hillary, who will walk across the stage in Solon the same day, Lisa says she still feels blessed.
“I am very proud of all my children, and how hard they have worked and what they’ve accomplished,” she said. “It’s a good kind of problem to have.”

Stone Academy to host open house events

SOLON– The Stone Academy, a country school located on Highway 1 just north of Solon, will host open house events as follows:

• Beef Days weekend: July 21 from noon until 2 p.m.
