Switching SEATS ?

Supervisors counting on cities to help fund service

IOWA CITY– Contracts with Iowa City and Coralville for the county-wide para-transit bus service, SEATS, will expire at the end of June. But Johnson County supervisors have already decided they want to end their subsidy of the service.
The program provides riders around the county with door-to-door transport and anyone outside the city limits of Iowa City, Coralville, North Liberty and University Heights can request a ride that comes with a half-hour window for pick-ups.

Brushing up at Solon’s Corridor Arts

SOLON– Corridor Arts opened a Main Street studio in mid-October last year, and interest in art classes and painting lessons is growing.
Offering watercolor, acrylic and drawing lessons for children and adults, the studio is run by Susan Kennicott and Lianne Westcot as a space to practice art. Their lessons and classes are a great way for artists at all levels to set aside time and create with color, line, shape and the other components of two-dimensional aesthetics.

Wilderness Studio decks the halls

SOLON– Dick Sjolund and Wilderness Studio assistant Emilee McNeal were delivering gifts a bit ahead of Santa at the Solon Nursing Care Center in December.
Sjolund surprised residents with framed photos (printed at his studio in rural Solon) and little fanfare. Sjolund has been taking portraits of the care center staff at his Wilderness Studio. He decided against a holiday sale of his pictures in favor of gifting his photos, many of which were taken and exhibited around the world.

First day of Solon school up for grabs

School board to hold hearing Jan. 14 to take input on start date

Christmas wishes

Hunter Jones, 7, told Santa she wants a parrot and a trampoline for Christmas. She was visiting jolly old St. Nick at Bridge Community Bank in Solon.

Historic Dillon’s Furrow marked in Solon

SOLON– History was marked in Solon on Sunday, Nov. 25, when a plaque was set next to Highway 1 on Main Street. The marker recognizes a point in time along the line that 173 years ago was known as the new military road from Iowa City to Dubuque.
It was built for $20,000 and, after surveying, was plowed by Lyman Dillon, of Cascade. Dillon, 39 years old and born in Utica, N.Y., was single and the owner of a saw mill.
