Annie

Orphans, billionaires, the President and a charming little dog

SOLON– There are no hard knocks when it comes to the Solon High School (SHS) drama department; only rave reviews.
Roughly 60 students comprised the cast, crew and orchestra of SHS’s production of “Annie, the Musical,” a Broadway adaptation performed Nov. 13-15 to nearly sold-out crowds at each show. With the help of several volunteers to help with set decoration and props, director Jessica Frerich said the community came together to create another successful show.

Women win two

The Hawkeye women played two games last week, winning both.
They knocked off Virginia, 85-73, in the Big Ten/ACC challenge last week.
Alexa Kastanek was 8-11 from the floor, including 4-7 from 3-point range, as she led the Hawks with 22.
Ally Disterhoft finished with 18 points, seven rebounds and four assists.
Sunday, the Hawk women beat Robert Morris, 69-50, at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
It wasn’t an easy win, as Iowa got behind 10-0 and had to fight back to sit at 7-1.
The Hawk men won two games last week at Carver, beating Florida State, 78-75, in the Big Ten/ACC challenge.

Hawkeyes going to Rose Bowl

Hawk Talk

I’ve waited 52 years for a season like this.
It’s still a good season, even though the Hawks lost a knock-down drag-out slugfest to Michigan State, 16-13, last Saturday night.
The Hawks went undefeated in the regular season and their 12-0 record has never happened before.
Even though they lost, their consolation prize is playing Stanford in the Rose Bowl!

County to allow poultry processing on more agricultural parcels

IOWA CITY– The Johnson County Board of Supervisors passed an ordinance amendment to allow for up to 999 birds to be raised, slaughtered and processed annually on agriculturally zoned parcels for sale to household consumers only. The change was made in response to a recommendation from the Johnson County Food Policy Council and research conducted by County Planning, Development and Sustainability staff.

Surviving the zombie apocalypse

Walkin'

If I kept all the cash selling marijuana to the jet set, I’d have filled several closets with hundred dollar bills.
But, I was smarter than your average bear and I invested it wisely.

Holidays

Food For Thought

We generally refer to this time of year, roughly the period including Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year, as “the holidays.” My dictionary defines the word itself as: absence, celebration, day off, interim, pause and vacation. My thesaurus gives a mind-boggling list of well over a hundred official holidays worldwide, many of which are unknown to most people. Some of those are regional or state holidays which, I suppose, are or were, at one time, important to the people who live there, but I wonder just how many of them are still significant enough to be celebrated annually.
