Booted!

West High suffers first 2013 loss, loses the Boot

IOWA CITY– It had to happen sooner or later. However, the West High Trojans probably would’ve preferred to suffer their first loss of the 2013 season after The Battle for the Boot.
The City High Little Hawks stymied and denied the Trojans with a 14-7 win Friday night at City, taking the golden Boot in the process. West captured The Boot last year in a 44-0 shutout at home, ending a City streak. The night started out on a promising note as the sophomores pounded out a 48-20 win.

Lady Spartans overwhelm Raiders

SOLON– The Anamosa volleyball team looked like a deer in the headlights.
The Solon Lady Spartans rattled off 10 straight points behind the serving of junior Taylor Nearad and never looked back, sweeping the Anamosa Raiders 3-0 in a conference match-up last Tuesday in Solon.
Nearad was a serving machine for the Lady Spartans, going 24-27 with 10 aces from behind the service line. No other Lady Spartan had more than seven serves.
Solon won 25-6, 25-12 and 25-6, with liberal substitutions throughout the match.

NL resident finds solar power a hot commodity

Jason Hall building his energy business across the state of Iowa

NORTH LIBERTY– Although solar power is not a novel idea, successfully harnessing the power of the sun requires sleek, cutting-edge equipment and software; and it’s not cheap. Markets in sunny California, Arizona, and Hawaii have become inundated with solar power industry, but the Midwest has yet to reach the same saturation.
North Liberty resident, and CEO of Moxie Solar, Jason Hall believes now is the time for his home state to begin utilizing the sun’s power for energy.
“We’re assuming now that Iowa is now ready to adopt this technology,” Hall said. “It makes sense.”

Come on, let’s play ball

Golden retriever Bo gets an invitation to play ball with this golden lab at the Sept. 8 Doggie Plunge, hosted by the North Liberty Recreation Department and the City of North Liberty, but Bo isn’t biting. The event is held every year at the end of summer, just before the outdoor facility at the North Liberty Aquatic Center closes, so people and their pooches can enjoy a dip in the pool before it is prepared for the winter season.
