"Where the green grass grows." (check the photo at bottom of story)

Is this phrase a 1949 movie title, a 1998 song lyric, the public tennis courts in Ada, or all of the above. Yup, all of the above.

The four tennis courts in Ada need resurfacing after 17 years because the cracks in the courts are getting bigger...and green grass grows there.

Redbuds on S Main

Every year several varieties of trees and shrubs out do themselves when they bloom in the spring. Redbud trees are among the winners this year, filling the village with their light purple blooms wherever they are planted. We chose to photograph the Mary Bowden house at Main Street and Lima Avenue because redbuds have grown there for many years and have caught the eyes of passers-by for a very long time. Spring wouldn't be spring in Ada if for some reason they didn't bloom at this house on South Main.
