Alzheimer's awareness supper

"Carrie the Musical" set for Oct. 19-22 at Freed Center

ONU music and theatre arts students will present "Carrie the Musical" at the Freed Center from Oct. 19-22.

The show is adapted from Stephen King's horror novel "Carrie" but has gone through many rewrites from the time the musical was originally produced in England to a limited 1988 Broadway production to an 0ff Broadway revival.

Briefly, here's the story: Carrie White is a misfit - awkward, unattractive, heavy.  At school, she’s an outcast who’s bullied by the popular crowd and virtually invisible to everyone else.

Thirsty for a Bulldog or Ram shake?

You probably never thought you'd see your teachers working behind the counter at McDonald's, but it's going to happen...for a good cause, to raise money for the Ada and Upper Scioto Schools.

About a dozen elementary teachers from each school will compete at Ada McDonald's to see which school has the highest sales during a set time. A percentage of all sales goes to the schools.

Ada teachers will be at McDonalds from 5-8 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 9 while USV teachers' shift is the same time on Monday, Oct. 16.

Teachers will welcome customers, handle order taking and cashiering, and hand out food orders in the dining area and drive thru.
