Spooky story, pictures

Don’t overlook this spooky debut novel because it is cataloged in the YA (Young Adult) section. “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” by Ransom Riggs has already been snapped up by Twentieth Century Fox for movie adaptation. Sixteen-year old Jacob witnessed his grandfather’s horrifying death and decided to journey to a small Welsh island to see if the stories about his growing up were actually true. Grandfather claims to have been raised in an orphanage populated by children with powers like invisibility and levitation.

New best selling books

Local best-sellers are listed in the Sunday paper and several of those listed have arrived on the library shelves this week. The number one book in eastern Iowa this week, “The Sacred Acre: The Ed Thomas Story,” by Mark Tabb is a title all will recognize. Ed Thomas was 58 years old and helping his community recover from a tornado when he was gunned down by one of his former students while working with a group of Parkersburg football and volleyball players. The murder of this hometown hero shocked the nation. Ed’s family and community reeled from the shock.

Lakeview PTO fundraiser

Back on the beam

SOLON– Now that’s trust.
Up by a single touchdown and facing fourth down and 13 from their own 17-yard line, the Solon Spartans attempted a fake punt. Junior Rory Siddell took the snap and mailed a pass 25 yards to senior Cody Fritz.
Fritz leapt high, curling his body backward and extending his right arm. It was just a few inches too high.
The visiting Benton Community Bobcats now had the ball deep in Solon territory, and moments later were at the Solon 7 with first down and goal to go.
The Solon defense, however, had earned the confidence displayed by their coaches.
