What if we’re just a little bit naughty?

It was HIS idea. Jolly Old Saint Nicholas conspired with Anushka Dervesh, whispering something in her ear just before her mother snapped this photo of the two of them sticking out their tongues. Santa Claus visited the North Liberty Community Center on Saturday, Dec. 7, to visit with local kids during the community’s annual Breakfast With Santa event. Children were able to enjoy a pancake breakfast, do a craft, play with Jumbe the Lion, view a toy train in action and watch a holiday video before jumping in the long line of kids waiting to sit on Santa’s lap.

Changes on tap for Old Gold

Solon Retirement Village to provide meals beginning in 2014

SOLON– Solon’s Old Gold Dining began providing congregate meals to area seniors in May 1980, the year after the Solon United Methodist Church built its fellowship hall. In the three decades since its inception, the program has undergone various changes, from cooking meals on-site to contracting with a meal provider, serving a fluctuating number of people throughout the years to a current roster of 93 participants age 60 and older.
Over time, Old Gold Dining has become much more than a place to get hot food once a day for the price of a free-will donation.

First win for girls comes against Demons

Alex Henry 3-pointer gives Lady Spartans the lead with 5 seconds

SOLON– The Lady Spartans earned their first victory of the young basketball season after a clutch Alex Henry 3-pointer completed a comeback win against the Washington Demons Saturday, 47-46.

Clipper girls one and one

Clipper girls 10 points better than Independence

TIFFIN– The ship is back on an even keel. After a season-opening loss to Center Point-Urbana, the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) varsity girls battled the Mustangs of Independence for a 67-57 win Tuesday, Dec. 3, at home.
The Clippers took an early lead with a Kelsey Hall 3-pointer and led 11-2 before an end-of-the-first period rally by the Mustangs narrowed the gap to 11-8 in favor of CCA.
Emily Wieland opened the second period for CCA by scoring on a rebound, Molly Villhauer added a pair of baskets and Lauren Stopko nailed a 3-pointer. The Clippers enjoyed a 27-22 lead at the half.

The Dock asks for a second date

SOLON– The owners of the Dock want you to take a second look.
John and Kristen Ahlf opened the restaurant at 101 Windflower Ln., in June with the intent of providing a dining experience to satisfy the most refined tastes.
“The reviews were about 60-40,” said John Ahlf, referring to the comments several early customers posted online; sixty percent being positive, and the rest, not so much. “We read every single comment, good and bad.”
That’s what inspired the Ahlfs to make changes to the restaurant’s décor, menu and staff.
