Come on, let’s play ball

Golden retriever Bo gets an invitation to play ball with this golden lab at the Sept. 8 Doggie Plunge, hosted by the North Liberty Recreation Department and the City of North Liberty, but Bo isn’t biting. The event is held every year at the end of summer, just before the outdoor facility at the North Liberty Aquatic Center closes, so people and their pooches can enjoy a dip in the pool before it is prepared for the winter season.

City reviews proposal for new elderly, dementia care facility

Would require adding new use to city’s O/RP zoning ordinance

By Lori Lindner
North Liberty Leader
NORTH LIBERTY– A developer has approached the City of North Liberty, hoping to build a residential care facility for elderly patients and individuals with dementia.
A group of investors has tentatively proposed to build a three-story, two-wing facility with 12 adjoining cottages in the city’s Liberty Executive Park, just north of the new University of Iowa Community Credit Union (UICCU) member support center off Jones Boulevard.
The property is zoned O/RP, designated for office and research park businesses.

Tie goes to the (No. 6) runner

Solon boys and girls third at Anamosa

By Joe Wilkinson
Special to the Economist

ANAMOSA– In high school cross country scoring, only a team’s first five runners figure into the scoring. But Solon’s David Coberly learned that finishing sixth can be vital.
Led by Patrick McGill and Ty Appleget at the Sept. 28 Anamosa Invitational, Solon was tied with Fort Madison as each team’s top five crossed the finish line. McGill (12th) and Appleget (14th) each medaled for the Spartans; followed by teammates Taylor Walkner (21st), Simon Düster (25th) and Nik Rehnke (28th).

Big road games coming next week

Top conference rivals Mt. Vernon and West Delaware on tap

SOLON– Solon head coach Peter Gustin knows better than to look ahead on the schedule.
“When teams look ahead, they falter,” Gustin said. “The little things and discipline start to go out the window and there isn’t a team that can just flip a switch and play its “A” game. We focus on certain areas of improvement in every match, regardless of our opponent.”
But Gustin admitted with looming conference showdowns on the road at Mount Vernon and West Delaware, he may be looking at a little more film than usual, and the regular goofiness at practice will be tapered off.

307 yards

Solon quarterback Jacob Black rushes for near-record yardage in 35-14 win over Sabers

DeWITT– The Central DeWitt Sabers just could not figure out Solon quarterback Jacob Black.
Black was 0-4 from the pocket and finished with a quarterback rating of 0.0, but he did something no other Solon quarterback has done, and that’s rush for 300 yards.
Black compiled 307 yards rushing on 26 carries Friday night, just shy of the school individual record of 329 yards set by Randy Beranek in 1978, to lead the Spartans to a 35-14 win of the Sabers of Central Clinton at DeWitt.
“I don’t think we have had a 300-yard rusher for over 20 years at Solon,” remarked head coach Kevin Miller.
