Forte Performance Dancers to host “Tip Night” Nov. 20

Saving money with ENERGY STAR CFLs and LEDs

NORTH LIBERTY– We’re all looking to lower our electric bills. But what’s the cheapest, easiest way to do it? The answer is light bulbs. By changing out your old, traditional incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) in your five most-used light fixtures, you can save more than $65 each year in electricity costs. Plus, when used properly, average CFLs last about 7-10 times longer than average incandescent bulbs.
If you’re ready to give LED light bulbs a try, you’ll save a bit more on electricity, but the real benefit is in the features.

Lady Spartans hammer their way into state tournament

SOLON– When that last point fell against them, tears streamed down the faces of the Lady Spartans’ volleyball team.
They hugged, then they wiped their eyes and stood with the runner-up trophy in the center of the Cedar Rapids Ice Arena.
Solon, ranked No. 6 in Class 4A, had taken on the top three seeds in the tournament and had almost run the table, just running out of points to play against the No. 1 team, Charles City, in the 4A final Saturday in Cedar Rapids.

Gustin named Solon head coach

SOLON– Solon Community School District Activities Director Keith McSweeney announced Tuesday that Peter Gustin will have the "interim" tag removed from his title as the head volleyball coach at Solon High School.
"Coach Gustin did a fabulous job this year and we couldn't have been happier with his performance," McSweeney stated in an email. "We have been impressed with Peter since the first time he walked through our doors, and we are even more confident in his abilities after observing him this season."

More data, more questions

OXFORD– They know how many kids are in seats now, and where those seats are. What they don’t know is how many more are coming, or when.
The Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Facilities Committee held their second meeting Monday, Nov. 12, at Clear Creek Elementary in Oxford, a school recently closed to open enrollment and the second in the district to do so due to lack of space. Committee Co-Chairs Malinda Lamb and Laura Kay Sheely distributed a revised proposed timeline, including data through the month of November.

Food For Thought

Until I graduated from high school, I was quite unaware of college sports, professional teams, and such things as college bowl games. About the only sport I was aware of, besides my own hometown football and basketball teams, was the World Series, and that was only because the teachers, as well as many of the students, in my high school insisted on having a radio playing in the study hall and broadcasting those games that were being played on school days.

Beer, coke, coal and potatoes

Even though we started the day using socks for gloves because of the mountain cold, we arrived in Connellsville about 5 p.m. hot and tired. Before finding our lodgings, we stopped at the Mile Marker Lounge for a beer.
