November 21st

Arthur Collins

Arthur L. Collins, 84, formerly of West Liberty died Saturday, Nov. 12, 2011, at his home in West Branch.
Funeral service was held Nov. 18, at the Henderson-Barker Funeral Home in West Liberty. Burial with military honors was in the Oak Ridge Cemetery, West Liberty.

Grace Clark

Grace Leona Clark, 95, a resident of the Solon Care Center, formerly of Ely, died Thursday, Nov. 10, 2011, at the care center, on what would have been her 74th wedding anniversary. Funeral services were held Nov. 15 at St. John Lutheran Church in Ely by the Rev. Erika Uthe. Burial was in Rogers Grove Cemetery, Ely. Arrangements were by Murdoch-Linwood Funeral Home & Cremation Service in Cedar Rapids.

Walkin'

The problem with writing any kind of murder mystery in stories based in Solon is picking someone to make the killer.
Maybe, for example, I could assign the role to Gene, the somewhat gruff manager at the time of the Solon American Legion, which is located two buildings and an alley over from my apartment.

Food For Thought

It’s hard to find good black walnuts that are ready to use. I sometimes find them at farmers markets, church bazaars, or in the classified ads, but somebody else usually gets there first and they’re all gone by time I arrive. I usually end up shopping in a health food store or the Stringtown Grocery near Kalona, where they are much fresher and considerably cheaper than those bitty little packages in the grocery store.

Still the best!

CEDAR RAPIDS– All season long, the West High Women of Troy volleyball team had two phrases they lived by: Live Like Line and Remember Us. The first was a tribute to friend and teammate Caroline Found (nicknamed “Line”), who died in a moped accident in August. The second was a message to fans, friends and foes alike. It was not a question, it was a statement: “Remember us; we’re coming back to state.” Not only did the team overcome its grief to dominate the regular season as the top-ranked team in Class 4A, the Women of Troy made it to the state tournament for the fourth year in a row.

One soup-er supper to help feed hundreds

By Lori Lindner
North Liberty Leader
NORTH LIBERTY– “Stone Soup” is a tale meant to teach the value of cooperation amidst scarcity; hungry travelers come to a village and, starting with nothing but a rock and a pot of boiling water, gradually gain the trust and cooperation of the townsfolk, who each share small bits of food that collectively become a savory stew, enough to feed the entire village.

Great news from Iowa’s Great Places
