Walkin'

The problem with writing any kind of murder mystery in stories based in Solon is picking someone to make the killer.
Maybe, for example, I could assign the role to Gene, the somewhat gruff manager at the time of the Solon American Legion, which is located two buildings and an alley over from my apartment.

Hawk Talk

Road trip win...Finally

After the Hawkeyes got smoked by Michigan State last week a lot of the “experts” wondered if Iowa would win another game.
They hadn’t won on the road all season and finished at Purdue and Nebraska.
“Not so fast my friends,”  said the Hawks, and they rolled over Purdue Saturday, 31-21.
The usual suspects led the Hawks once again.
Marcus Coker had over 100 yards rushing, Marvin McNutt had over 150 yards receiving and James Vandenberg had over 250 yards passing.
