Food For Thought

Newsflash! In England, chocolate has been declared a health food. The flavinoids (whatever those are) in dark chocolate have been proven to be beneficial in helping the body absorb some of the nutrients in food. And it is now recommended even to diabetics, who long have been deprived of such decadent treats. There’s one catch, though. Contrary to most people’s thinking that if a little is good, more is better, you should have no more than the equivalent of half a candy bar per week. Hardly enough for a good chocolate binge– or even a mild self-indulgence.

Walkin'

I break several laws every day...
There’s a stop sign near our house I regularly roll through in my car, for example. If police were present, I’d get a ticket but I don’t, never have, as I always make sure no one is around. If a pedestrian, another vehicle or, most decidedly, a squad car is in sight, I come to the complete stop law requires. If no one hears or sees it happen, like the proverbial tree falling in a forest, then it didn’t happen or matter.

Hawk Talk

Media day was Monday, Aug. 6, and it’s time to break down the offense, defense and special teams and then we can play some football.
I usually start with the offense when talking about Iowa football and I always start with the offensive line.
As I’ve said many times, if you have a good O-line, you can control the line of scrimmage, have more possession time, you can keep your defense fresh and usually come out with a win.

East side park proposal stirs residents again

SOLON– It would be nice to have a plan for that green space.
And residents of the neighboring Fox Ridge subdivision would like to be a part of it.
Before things get built.
In a continuation of a discussion that started in 2008 and stalled out somewhere in between, residents of Fox Ridge approached members of the Solon City Council Aug. 1 to voice their concerns about the development of city-owned property smack-dab in the middle of their subdivision.
