TIFFIN– It took a little time to get rolling.
After a shaky end to Solon’s first drive, the Spartans put up four touchdowns in the first half to spoil Clear Creek Amana’s (CCA) Homecoming Friday night, 38-9.
Solon had marched all the way to the CCA 1-yard line in its opening possession, but a holding penalty negated a touchdown, a snap sailed over the head of Solon quarterback J. J. Hanus, and he was subsequently sacked for a 7-yard loss.
Josh Proehl, however, was up to the task, and a 41-yard field goal put the Spartans on the scoreboard with a 3-0 lead.

SOLON– If you have questions about the city’s plan for a new city hall, you should have answers soon.

October events

• The next time you are in the library, notice the new hummingbird and goldfinch feeders visible from the window in the children’s area. We’ve already seen many beautiful birds and they are so interesting to watch. The hummingbirds have been very plentiful. Be sure and catch a glimpse of them before they migrate.

Check out a puzzle

Before the holiday schedule bogs you down, check out a puzzle and enjoy a few cool evenings around the table putting together a jigsaw puzzle. All the puzzles in the library collection have been donated. There are several 300-piece puzzles with easy-to-grip pieces which have proved to be popular. If you have one that you no longer want, consider donating it to the library collection. Or, if you’d like to try one, be sure to come and check one out.
