Solon Economist holiday schedule

The Solon Economist has several more changes coming at the end of the year.
There will be an early deadline of Thursday, Dec. 19, for the Dec. 25 issue. The Dec. 25 issue will also be mailed a day early.
Beginning with the Jan. 8, 2014, edition, the publication date of the Economist will be permanently changed by one day, with the result that our papers will be arriving in most mailboxes on Thursday instead of Wednesday.
This change is being made to align our publication with the other newspapers in our small chain.

Changes on tap for Old Gold

Solon Retirement Village to provide meals beginning in 2014

SOLON– Solon’s Old Gold Dining began providing congregate meals to area seniors in May 1980, the year after the Solon United Methodist Church built its fellowship hall. In the three decades since its inception, the program has undergone various changes, from cooking meals on-site to contracting with a meal provider, serving a fluctuating number of people throughout the years to a current roster of 93 participants age 60 and older.
Over time, Old Gold Dining has become much more than a place to get hot food once a day for the price of a free-will donation.

Wrestlers escape, 22-19

The Hawkeye wrestlers traveled to Edinboro last week and had to come from behind to stay undefeated.
Top-ranked Tony Ramos lost 3-2 at 133 pounds, Josh Dziewa was pinned at 141, Brody Grothus lost a major at 149 and Tomas Lira was pinned at heavyweight.
Iowa countered with six wins, including majors at 125 by Thomas Gilman, Derek St. John at 157, Mike Evans at 174 and Sammy Brooks at 197.
“We made it hard on ourselves, but we also had guys that wrestled hard,” said Iowa head coach Tom Brands. “Battling back for the dual win is a testament to their toughness.”

Hawkeyes are going bowling

Iowa will be playing LSU in the Outback Bowl on Wednesday, Jan. 1, at noon.
The LSU Tigers, ranked 15th in the nation, finished the season 9-3. That includes a win over Auburn, which is playing in the BCS championship game.
The only time Iowa has ever played LSU was in the Capital One Bowl in 2005. Drew Tate found Warren Holloway for a 56-yard game-winning touchdown with time running out and Iowa won, 30-25.
Also congratulations to James Morris for being named Capital One First Team Academic All-American.

Hawkeye men with big win over Irish

By Don Lund
Sports Writer

The Hawkeye men are 9-1.
They opened with a big 98-93 win over Notre Dame last week at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
A really good back-and-forth game with the Hawks holding on.
Great shooting from the floor (57 percent), from 3-point range (54 percent) and from the free throw line, where the Hawkeyes were 25-28.
How about Iowa’s bench and the crowd?
The Fighting Irish had a seven-man rotation and Iowa went 10 deep.
In the first half, the Hawks had nine players score… none of them in double-figures.

Women Go 2-0

Hawk Talk

By Don Lund
Sports Writer

Iowa’s women won two games last week and now have won six in a row.
The Hawkeyes picked up a big 97-91 win over 22nd-ranked Syracuse Thursday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
When I take pictures at Iowa games I usually sit under the basket that the Hawks will be shooting at in the first half.
That is also closest to the visitors’ bench.
When I saw the Syracuse players lined up at their bench I noticed a lot of size, length and depth.
They played 10 players and were 8-0 coming into Carver.

Iowa’s shotgun deer season preview

By Joe Wilkinson
Iowa Department of Natural Resources
DES MOINES– Iowa deer hunters likely stepped out into single-digit cold Saturday, the opener for the first shotgun season. That’s closer to typical weather than the balmy 30s and 40s the previous weekend. What better way to kick off the 60th anniversary of Iowa’s deer season, than by stocking up on hand warmers?
