Hawk Talk

By Don Lund
Sports Writer
The last couple of years I’ve been doing a flashback to talk about the Hawkeye football season plus basketball, wrestling and what was going on in the world at that time.
This time we’re going back to the year 1977.
Once again I have to thank the late Al Grady for getting most of my information on the Hawkeye football team. I used the book Al wrote, “25 Years with the Fighting Hawkeyes,” and I still enjoy reading it today.
Bob Commings was head coach for the Hawkeye football team, Lute Olsen was the head man for basketball and Dan Gable led the wrestlers.

Calf Classic artists preparing

SOLON– The design “Blooming Beef,” submitted by mosaic artist Kelsi Fobian for the Solon Library Foundation’s Calf Classic project, was selected by Calf Classic sponsor Tom Cardella. Fobian’s concept has a calf covered in flowers, each small piece of hand-cut glass placed in such a way as to create a whole flower. The glass, purchased from Northern Lights Stained Glass in Iowa City, is cut with a hand glass cutter from sheets of glass and cut into smaller pieces with glass nippers. The design was first drawn on the calf’s body, with each piece of glass then glued into position.
