This is only a test

SOLON– Imagine a large tornado had passed north of Solon.
That’s what a statewide emergency response team was doing.
Members of the Iowa Task Force-1 Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) team spent a good part of two days in late June at the Lakeview OHV (Off Highway Vehicle) Park, formerly known as 600 acres, simulating their reaction to widespread tornado activity.
Headed by director Dan Dall of rural Solon, the team is trained to perform a variety of search and rescue operations in the aftermath of natural or manmade disasters.

Movie Clips

There are no new films this week but here are a few older ones you may have overlooked. They are really great films. Check them out.

“The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill” This poignant documentary chronicles the true story of a modern-day St. Francis of Assisi, a homeless San Francisco street musician by the name of Mark Bittner who adopts a flock of wild parrots as he searches for meaning in his life. With a surprise ending that left festival audiences cheering, director Judy Irving’s film celebrates urban wildness– human and avian– and links parrot antics to human behavior.
