Heating up at home

SOLON– The Spartan boys’ soccer team controlled the tempo in the first half of a match against Western Dubuque on May 8, but did not score until the second half when Nick Brown and Austin Dall scored a goal apiece.

But when a few city employees entered the house to take a closer look, they were surprised by its still-handsome interior.
