Former Solon resident puts his chainsaw to work for Penn school

NORTH LIBERTY– A panther has been unleashed at Penn Elementary School; not from chains or the bars of an iron cage, but from a 500-pound log of soft pine.

He came to Penn school in North Liberty on Friday, April 13, to craft a wooden rendition of the school’s mascot for a permanent display honoring Penn’s 50th year in the Iowa City Community School District.
