Icon dog of the week - Crater

Meet Crater. Crater is a 1 year old neutered male dachsund mix. He weighs 18 pounds. Can you give Crater his forever home?

To give a dog a forever home, contact the Hardin County dog shelter. It is located at 49 Jones Road on the west side of Kenton.

Hours: 9 am to 4 pm on Monday, Thursday, and Friday. Phone: 419-674-2209.

Generally, about 20 to 25 dogs are available for viewing.

The shelter is also the place to contact for giving up a dog, if you find a lost or stray dog, or if you come in contact with a vicious dog. It costs $20 to surrender a dog, which pays for deworming and immunizations for when it is rescued.

The UN comes to ONU

High school students discuss important issues facing the world

By Monty Siekerman
Nearly 100 high school students – from Tipp City to Toledo – participated in a Model UN on the ONU campus on Saturday.

Before arriving in Ada, the students were given a country to represent and studied that nation, especially its politics. Then, on campus, the students voted in a mock General Assembly how they thought the country they represented would vote.

The difficult issues discussed were:
• Nuclear disarmament and non-profileration;
• Children in armed conflict;
• Terrorism, cybersecurity and the threat of cyberwarfare.
