Pantry to co-host public forum on hunger issues July 21

NORTH LIBERTY– The North Liberty Community Food and Clothing Pantry, in collaboration with HACAP (Hawkeye Area Community Action Program) Food Reservoir and other area food pantries, are hosting a public forum, “Focus on Hunger,” on July 21 from 12 to 2 p.m. at North Liberty First United Methodist Church, 85 N.

City slides Peterson from contract to staff

NORTH LIBERTY– The City of North Liberty now has an attorney on staff.
He’s a familiar face; Scott C. Peterson has served as North Liberty’s City Attorney since August 2006. Until now, Peterson has been a contractual employee. It is a common practice, particularly in smaller cities, to obtain certain services through contractual agreements, including those of an attorney, an engineer, and even law enforcement officers.
In North Liberty’s case, said City Administrator Ryan Heiar, it was a good idea, as well as a cost savings, to bring Peterson on as a regular staff person

NORTH LIBERTY– North Liberty Food Pantry Executive Director Tina DuBois is concerned the pantry’s inventory could be pared down considerably, if federal legislators continue to trim agriculture-related appropriations spending.

Lady Spartans homer happy

The Lady Spartans moved to 22-7 on the season and 13-2 in the WaMaC East, going 5-1 against No. 8 West Delaware, Vinton-Shellsburg, Mid-Prairie and No. 6 Keokuk. Solon is sixth in the Class 3A rankings released June 24 by the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union.

Solon picks up first two losses

SOLON– Solon’s varsity baseball team picked up its first two losses of the season last Friday hosting No. 9 Davenport Assumption.
The Spartan bats hit a quiet spell, and that was enough to drop both ends of a home doubleheader, 1-4 and 4-6.
Marshall Koehn went 2-4 in the first game, during which Solon was limited to six hits. Nick Day contributed the lone RBI.  Ryan Butler pitched well, striking out seven batters over six innings, but picked up his first loss of the season taking his record to 4-1.
