School calendar

Continue to check the school’s online calendar during the summer months for many events and changes as they occur. Also the one page 2012-13 school year calendar is available on the web site under ‘Calendars.’ The first day of school will be Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2012. Have an enjoyable summer.

PowerSchool e-registration

For the 2012-13 school year, the Solon Community School District (SCSD) will be once again be using an e-registration process accessible through PowerSchool.

Spartan six start senior softball season

SOLON– After at least five years of Solon softball, this summer will be the last one for six Spartan seniors playing in their final season together.
In fact, some of the recently-graduated Spartans will become opponents next year at the college level.
“It’s going to be weird playing against each other,” catcher Hannah Turkal said.
Turkal will play for University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Others will attend schools around Iowa, with one at Minnesota State.

Solon boys advance to substate semifinal

The Solon varsity boys’ soccer team defeated Mid-Prairie 1-0 in a soccer substate semifinal Wednesday, advancing to a substate final against Albia Saturday, May 26, at noon in Solon (subsequent to the publication of this edition). A win places the Spartans in the state soccer tournament in Des Moines.

Spartans upended by CCA

TIFFIN– Sometimes a loss can rejuvenate a team and spur them on to victory the next go-around. For the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) boys’ varsity soccer squad, a recent loss to West Delaware may have added a little more fuel to their fire Thursday, May 17, as friendly rival Solon came to town.
“We remembered how to win,” coach Tim Benson said after CCA’s 2-1 WaMaC victory, the first over the Spartans in recent years and a much better showing than last year’s blowout in Solon.

Mebus’ throw lands gold medal

DES MOINES– Connor Mebus threw the shot put 57 feet, 11.75 inches, shattering his own school record and bringing home a gold medal from the state track meet held at Drake Stadium in Des Moines. The monster throw came on his third throw in the preliminaries after he had tossed an impressive 54 feet on his second throw. Mebus peaked at the best time possible, as the second place thrower from Decorah hit 56 feet, 7 inches. Mebus became the 14th state champion for throwing coach Brad Wymer, and the first to come from Solon.

Round one to Regina

IOWA CITY– Last Tuesday’s intense battle went to Regina but round two is coming up this Friday.  
The Solon Lady Spartans travelled to Iowa City Regina last week for a fierce competition. Solon and Regina are know for having a stiff rivalry and this game was no exception. Both teams kept up their intensity throughout the entire game. Solon struck early with an Alison McKinnie goal, but the Regals answered with four goals in the first half.  

Schwab to press on for permit

JOHNSON COUNTY– The builder and owner of the Celebration Barn finally has something to celebrate.
Or, at least, there is a celebration to work toward.
Rural Solon resident Dick Schwab has been seeking a special events permit from Johnson County since his original five-year Conditional Use permit for a home business expired in 2011, the county amended its ordinance for special events in January of this year, and the Johnson County Board of Adjustment disagreed on its interpretation last month.

Loebsack is our voice in Washington

I support Dave Loebsack for U.S. Congress in the June 5 Democratic primary.
Dave deserves a fourth term because he did what he said he would in 2005 when he started his exploratory committee: he has been the voice for Iowans who have no voice in Washington.
While I don’t agree with every vote Loebsack has taken, he is approachable. He and his staff will listen, and take action on issues that are important to me and to Iowa’s Second Congressional District.

Beaver Kreek Fire contained mostly to attic, roof

NORTH LIBERTY– A fire destroyed the roof of a combined commercial and residential apartment building in North Liberty’s Beaver Kreek Centre last Tuesday.
Building 335, to the west of Pizza Ranch, Dairy Queen and Jewelry By Harold, is the location of JMI Laboratories and a single residential apartment on its first floor, with eight one- and two-bedroom apartments on the second story. All nine of the residences were occupied, but only one unit reportedly had someone inside at the time of the fire. They got out, and none of the residents were injured.
