Ada, Arizona? Nope, Ada, Ohio

Not all cactus grow in Arizona, some are hardy, as shown in this photo taken on the first day of summer at the Pilger home in the 400 block of North Gilbert Street. The many bright yellow blooms of a cactus plant are from a start that was given to Bob Pilger 20 years ago. The starts have since spread and provide a mass of color by the front door this time of year.

Do you plan a yard/garage sale this summer? Check out the Ada Icon ad offer by scrolling down to near the bottom of this Homepage and opening "Contact Us."

The ONU Department of Art and Design recently held a week-long, intensive design camp for high school artists.

This year's theme was urban forests, something the Ada Tree Commission was glad to see and something any tree lover would support.

Zohie Dysert of Ada was among the campers, who all came up with dramatic posters. A few examples are posted below, including the one by Zohie.

The campers explored the fundamentals of visual communication. The program called on the artists and designers to make a powerful visual statement about trees to be put on banners.
