Dedication of Ciha Fen Sept. 22

SOLON– The Johnson County Conservation Board (JCCB) is excited to announce the celebration of one of its crowning achievements in conservation– the acquisition of the Ciha Fen Preserve. On Saturday, Sept. 22, the JCCB will be hosting a public dedication to celebrate the protection of this rare natural area which was purchased with funds from the Iowa DNR Resource Enhancement and Protection (REAP) cost-share grant and Johnson County Conservation Bond funds. The celebration will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Ciha Fen Preserve, which is located at 5656 145th St. NE, Lisbon.

Homecoming parade to change

The Solon High School Homecoming Parade route (Sept. 19) will be changing due to Main Street construction. The parade will begin at the middle school, then follow Short Street to Sovers Street to Racine Avenue to Spartan Stadium, where the pep rally and king coronation will occur.

Hawk Talk

Iowa 27 / UNI 16

One of the great things about following college football (or pro football) is that it only happens once a week.
If your team wins (like the Hawkeyes) you have all week to enjoy the victory, watch the replay of the game  (if you tape it like me) and break down the win.
The dark side is if you lose, you have a whole week of some sport writers ripping the Hawks, the message boards ready to fire every coach and a long week to deal with the negatives.
It’s even worse when your pro team (Da Bears) loses like they did to the Packers Thursday.

Walkin'

We left the Great Allegheny Passage on our second day, picked up the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal (C&O) as we rolled out of Cumberland, Md. (home to the city-wide happy hour every Friday night) and headed eventually to Washington, D.C.
We had the odd fortune of bicycling every day with rain predicted but never felt a drop until the seventh. On that day no rain was expected but we rode thru a steady drizzle, sat out one shower and rode through another. Nevertheless, every day of the first week was hot and very humid.
