The suite life for dogs

New boarding, daycare and grooming salon opens in NL

By Lori Lindner
North Liberty Leader
NORTH LIBERTY– Kristine Bauer has gone to the dogs, and she’s loving every minute of it.
Grooming dogs was something that came naturally to the Cedar Rapids resident, who learned the craft from a friend with a grooming salon in Missouri. But when Bauer’s son graduated from high school and went on to Iowa State University to be part of the wrestling program, Bauer said her pet project became opening a new location where she could add doggie daycare and boarding.

Grass and weeds: How high can you get?

City wants more control over habitual offenders

By Lori Lindner
North Liberty Leader
NORTH LIBERTY–North Liberty City Council members want to keep things equal on both sides of the fence, at least when it comes to mowing.
The council considered proposed changes to the city’s weed and grass heights ordinance at its meeting last Tuesday, Oct. 8, some of which were rejected by council.
The city administration regularly fields complaints about residents who let their grass and weeds go, and city employees were seeking a way to eliminate sending perennial reminders to repeat offenders.

Good late season finish, tough road ahead for XC

No conference title for Lady Spartans

Solon pushes past Mount Vernon, but West Delaware delivers first WaMaC loss

MOUNT VERNON– It was a rollercoaster ride for the Lady Spartans last week.
Solon dropped its first conference match of the year against West Delaware at Manchester Thursday, and that left the Lady Spartans in second place for the WaMaC East.
The Lady Spartans had two tough road games, and only came out on top in one.
The win came at Mount Vernon Tuesday night, a 3-1 conference win.

D-fense!

Spartans hold Indians to 63 yards in 42-0 conference victory; Maquoketa up next

SOLON– After a shaky first quarter, Solon kicked it in gear.
At least that’s the way it looked as Marion came to town for a conference game on the gridiron Friday night.
Solon was plagued by penalties in the early going, but soon shook it off and rolled to a 42-0 blanking of the Indians.
The win moves Solon to 6-1 on the year, 4-0 in Class 3A District 6 and headed for a showdown on the road with co-leader Maquoketa this Friday.
The Spartan defense held Marion to 63 total yards for the game, and scoreless for the first time this year.
