City plans for expansion amidst mild deficit

NORTH LIBERTY– As the City of North Liberty expands services and hires new employees, the upcoming fiscal year appears to hold steady. The city budget will climb ever so slightly from last year’s approximately $48 million, to a total of $51,552,360. North Liberty’s taxable valuation will grow by about 6.74 percent from FY18’s 8.68 percent, every spending category in the general budget will see an increase and for the eighth consecutive year, the tax rate will remain $11.03, thanks in large part to a steady growth in property values.
But it was no easy feat.

Lady Spartans fall 4-0 to Indians

Marion is Solon’s Little Big Horn

MARION– “Sometimes the magic works, sometimes it doesn’t,” or so said Old Lodge Skins in the 1970s movie, “Little Big Man,” a comical fictionalization of the lone survivor of the Battle of Little Big Horn. The Lady Spartans, third place in the WaMaC East, moved to 1-1 on the season Tuesday, April 10, following a windswept 4-0 defeat by the second-place WaMac West Marion Indians on the grass at the Marion High School soccer field, just up the hill from the high school.

Lady Spartans hit the greens

SOLON– With the loss of four seniors from last year’s squad, a big bunch of newcomers and a winter that just won’t go away, it’s been a slow start for the Solon girls’ golf season.
The Lady Spartans launched their year by hosting Vinton-Shellsburg and West Delaware in a triangular at Lake MacBride Golf Course April 5. Solon finished second out of three teams, led by junior Reegan Helle’s 52.

Beckman Catholic serves Solon first home loss of 2018

SOLON– Mother Nature appeared to shake off all her unlucky perspiration from the seasonal temperatures on Thursday over the noticeably colder and windswept Spartan Stadium as the Trailblazers of Beckman Catholic, from Dyersville, served the Lady Spartans their first home loss of the 2018 season on Friday, April 13.
Beckman Catholic, first place in the WaMaC East, faced the Lady Spartans under windy and cool conditions as the heavens occasionally spat upon both teams.
