IOWA CITY– Let the Johnson County Historical Society (JCHS) be your guide to summer fun in 2011! A camp rooted in the history and cultural heritage of Johnson County, Little School on the Prairie, will be hosted at the 1876 Coralville Schoolhouse. With camps focused on having fun and learning, campers will enjoy exploring the history of the community that they live in.

By Chris Umscheid
North Liberty Leader
SOLON– It was Senior Night for the Spartans last Thursday as they hosted their friendly rivals, the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers in a varsity/JV match. The seniors, indeed the bulk of the Spartan bench, shined in an 8-2 hammering of the Clippers.
“It was a great night,” Spartan Coach Jeremy McMurrin said of the win which improved Solon’s record to 13-2. The Spartans had already taken co-champion status in the East Division of the WaMaC, and were ranked fourth in Class 1A heading toward post-season play.

Making the scene

NORTH LIBERTY– Susan Miller has a room with a view.
Though Miller has lived in the same modest two-story at 245 N. George St. in North Liberty for 33 years, through many different seasons, she is treated to a springtime view overlooking a pastoral pond teeming with wildlife every day of the year.
Miller painted the scene on her fence.
“I wanted a deer,” she said. “My neighbor had seen deer in our alley, but I never had, so I wanted to be able to see a deer in the alley, too.”
She first painted a whitetail buck, and then added a doe for company. But the scene was too austere.
