April 17th

Ladies golf league meeting April 24

SOLON– Attention ladies, it’s that time of year again. Easter has passed, and flowers are in full bloom. Spring also means the start to golf season. Ladies league is just round the corner.
This year’s informational meeting will be held at Lake MacBride Golf Club on April 24 at 7 p.m.
There will be a free dessert bar. Come out and see what we have planned for this year. If you would like to get in a round of golf before the meeting, call and set up a tee time. 319-624-2500. We officially start our season on May 8 with a best shot.

District nutrition program operating at $100k deficit

SOLON– The school nutrition program, while being heralded for its success in bringing fresh produce and a daily salad bar to the schools, fell in a $116,000 hole this year.
The kitchen budget shortfall was inflated by the purchase of new kitchen equipment and fix-ups that ran about $50,000, according to Kelly Crossley, Solon’s nutrition program director. After federal reimbursements, a school’s kitchen should be self-sustaining and essentially pay for itself, she said.

Solon girls run away with Tipton, Iowa Valley meets

Three meets in a week... a couple more this week... and invites to the Drake Relays?

Tipton Tigerette Relays
Track meets are hard to follow. Who’s ahead? How many points for that? But there was no doubt Friday the 13th at the Tigerette Relays. No two or three point victory eked out here. Solon’s margin over the 15-school field? 100.5 points. “I didn’t expect that,” admitted coach Brent Sands. “We had a hard practice Wednesday, ran a meet Thursday. We knew with all the teams coming, there would be good competition in every event. I told the girls they should rise to that challenge.”

Factions lobby for support in bids for new ICCSD schools

IOWA CITY- Two groups are in the hunt for ICCSD facility funding.
Each group has started online petitions outlining their immediate priorities. One petition calls for a new elementary school on the east side of Iowa City, while supporters of the second petition last week lobbied their city council on April 10 for aid in convincing the Iowa City Community School District (ICCSD) to keep plans to build a high school in or close to North Liberty.
Over 1,000 signatures had been gathered in support of the new high school as of April 16.
