Jerry Starbuck

Jerry Thomas Starbuck, 79, of Solon, died peacefully Saturday, Oct. 8, 2011, at Iowa City Rehabilitation and Health Care Center after a long illness. Jerry’s funeral was celebrated Oct. 14, with military honors, at Lensing Funeral Home in Iowa City.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be directed to the Jerry Starbuck memorial fund. A grove of trees will be planted in his memory at F.W. Kent Park.

Hawk Talk

I know Northwestern has only beaten Iowa three years in a row (right, Stacy?) but it seems like it’s been 30 years since Iowa has knocked off the Wildcats.
2002 was the last time the Hawks won in Iowa City over the ‘Cats so Saturday’s 41-31 victory at Kinnick Stadium was big time– sort of like getting the 900-pound gorilla off Iowa’s back.
I’ve said this before about not liking night games at Kinnick.
The good part was the crowd was electric, the card display was really cool and the Hawkeyes played great.

Hawk Talk

Fran McCaffery enters his second season as Iowa’s head basketball coach with at least three things going for him.
1. More experience;
2. More talent;
3. More depth.
The Hawkeyes have six players that started last year, including senior guards Matt Gatens (6-5, 215) and Bryce Cartwright (6-1, 188).
Matt is one of the best free throw shooters ever to play at Iowa, and Bryce, who didn’t even start the first couple of games, led the Big Ten in assists.

Serbian Spartan is entrepreneur, journalist

By B. Adam Burke
Solon Economist
SOLON– If you’ve heard there’s a Serbian student at Solon High, you’ve really only heard half the story.
Levente Cipak, 16, has a dual citizenship: Serbian and Hungarian. He’s Hungarian but lives in Serbia, part of a tiny minority of Hungarians that have spilled from northern Hungary into the southeast European country of Serbia. He speaks both languages, some German, and is nearly fluent in English.
But this is not your typical teen, even a European one. Levente (pronounced Luh-vent-uh) is an entrepreneur, a journalist and a camp organizer.

St. Mary youth collecting food Oct. 30

SOLON– Students from St. Mary Catholic Church youth group will be going door-to-door in Solon on Sunday, Oct. 30, collecting canned and non-perishable goods for the needy. All proceeds will benefit the Johnson County Food Bank.
In the case of inclement weather, the event will be canceled.

Livable Communities making aging easier

IOWA CITY– Livable Communities for Successful Aging, the Johnson County initiative that’s at the forefront of advancing issues on successful aging, held a Fall Celebration on Sept. 23 in Iowa City.
From 2000 to 2030, the county is expected to more than double the number of citizens over age 55, so it’s good news that Livable Communities is leading the charge to organize and develop welcoming programs for seniors.

Sure Steps to decrease injuries and high cost of falls

JOHNSON COUNTY– A year ago, my mother fell and broke her hip. The accident was painful for her and scary for my sister and I. Luckily, it wasn’t very serious, just a tiny chip. As we waited for the diagnosis, I researched hip fractures and found falls can be the first slippery step in a downward decline.
People who fall and break bones can become dependent on others for food and doctor visits. If confined to bed or unable to get around, overall health can quickly deteriorate when someone’s seemingly small injury affects general health, mobility and independence.
