Movie Clips

“Bridesmaids” (2011, R, Comedy)– This unexpected hit, of the summer movie season, is a wild and raunchy comedy about a lovelorn and broke woman (Kristin Wiig) who is picked as her best friend’s maid of honor, and has to bluff her way through the expensive and bizarre rituals with an oddball group of bridesmaids.
“Conan O’Brien Can’t Stop” (2011, R, Documentary) – Conan O’Brien’s comedy tour of the U.S. and Canada after leaving his post at “The Tonight Show” and severing his relationship with NBC.

New Adult Fiction

Readers who have begun the Jennifer Donnelly multi-generational series with the first book, “The Tea Rose,” will be happy to learn that the second book of the series has arrived. “The Winter Rose” picks up with turn-of-the-century London at the center of the story. You will be taken in with the historical drama and the novel’s heroine– her courage, a lost love and a tragic family. It’s entertaining to read and a brilliant story.

School board seeks public input on Outdoor Events Center

SOLON– The Solon Community School District has been planning, developing and implementing the Outdoor Events Center over the past few years. We were delighted to be able to hold our first athletic events there during the spring track season last year. However, the project is far from complete and the Board has now turned its attention to making it fully functional for the fall of 2012. The purpose of this message is to share with the community the options the Solon Board of Education (BOE) is considering to make the Outdoor Events Center (OEC) a functional facility.

Solon’s 5th Street Jazz and the freshman band provided music for the event.
