Walkin'

As a mailman I got to know many a dog.There were a couple of Dobermans, for example, which camped out behind the door with the mail slot. With my first footfall on their property they would go into a snarling frenzy, sticking their narrow snouts out the slot while snapping their teeth like investment bankers anticipating a government handout. Holding the mail gingerly from one end, I’d feed it to the canines one piece at a time. Just audible among the snorts and growls, I could hear the day’s mail being torn to shreds.

Food for Thought

History is about people. It’s about you and me and the things we do, both as individuals and as a community. The Solon History Group has been making strides – well, maybe baby steps – toward assuring that the unique stories of our community are not forgotten. Solon and other Johnson County towns played important roles in the settlement and development of this part of the state. Its population has its own character, its history is an intriguing story, its place in the annals of the county and the state are essential parts of Iowa’s picture.

Spring Football Part Two

IOWA CITY– This is the second of a three-part series on spring football.
Last week I looked at the skill positions on offense: quarterback, running backs and receivers.
This week I’ll look at the offensive and defensive lines.
The Hawkeyes need to replace two All-Big Ten players on the offense and defensive lines in order to have a successful season.
Starting on the offense, gone are all-conference picks Seth Olsen and Rob Bruggeman.
Seth was one of those versatile linemen that could play guard or tackle. He played both from his freshman year to his junior season.

Yes For All PAC supports Local Option Sales Tax

JOHNSON COUNTY– In just a few days, all Johnson County voters will go to the polls to decide on a four-year, one-cent Local Option Sales Tax (LOST) referendum.
Hinged upon the outcome are the fates of several flood mitigation projects that can’t be built too soon for some.
In February, legislation allowed for counties in Iowa designated as disaster areas in 2008– and not already imposing such a tax– to hold a LOST election. Each jurisdiction filed a statement outlining specifically how the money would be spent.

Simplicity and service

TIFFIN — The desire for something better: it’s what led Nicolle and Rob Folkers into owning their own business. It’s also what they hope leads customers to their door.
Simply Floors, the business venture started by the Folkers, has been open since April 2008 and is located in an industrial park on the south edge of Tiffin. Nicolle said she grew up in the business, working for her Dad by installing flooring. Rob spent approximately 10 years in the flooring industry, and also spent his fair share of time on his hands and knees installing products.
