A family affair at the Johnson County Fair

Solon's five Düsters participate in Johnson County Fair

SOLON– Seven ribbons and five days later, the Düster family came to the conclusion of yet another Johnson County Fair.
It’s a busy week for many families in the county. But the Düsters are unique in that they have five children in 4-H– at the same time.
All five kids started 4-H in fifth grade and are still going strong– although the oldest, who just graduated from Solon High School, participated in his last fair this year.

Sidewalk cafes can serve May to November

City lowers fees for outdoor eateries

SOLON– The Solon City Council significantly reduced the price of hosting outdoor service for Main Street restaurants.
In response to feedback from two downtown eateries, council members voted, at an Aug. 17 meeting, to slash the cost of renting public sidewalk and street space and eliminated a per-day fee. The city also extended the outdoor service season from May 1 to Nov. 1.
The ordinance and its accompanying policy have been in place since June, but none of the qualifying Main Street establishments have taken advantage.

Part Three: Iowa Defense and Special Teams

Hawk Talk


This is the final piece of a three-part series on the Iowa Hawkeye football team. This week, I’ll look at the Hawkeye linebackers, defensive backs and special teams.
Next week…football!

Hawkeye
linebackers

The Hawks have talent and depth at linebacker and it starts in the middle, with one of the leaders on the defense, Josey Jewell (6-2, 235).
Jewell, a junior, was second team All-Big Ten last year, leading Iowa with 126 tackles. He also had four interceptions, second behind Desmond King, and 7.5 tackles for loss.

Would I kid you?

Walkin'

From the outside, I think we look normal enough in our white, two-story house along the highway. We keep the yard mowed, buy Girl Scout cookies, wave to neighbors, walk to church and live a fairly quiet life. I like to run around naked in the yard when there’s a full moon, but I only do that in the early morning hours when everyone else is safely tucked asleep. The low profile worked to my advantage while I raked in the dough from my marijuana growing operation and stacked the hundred dollar bills in the closet.

The back-to-school-sale

Food For Thought

As I look at all the things advertised as necessary for the coming school year, I remember the simple list of supplies needed for school during the 1940s when I was in elementary school. Up until third grade, about all that was required could be bought for under a dollar. A box of at least 16 crayons, two No. 2 pencils with erasers, and a tablet of lined paper.
