A Former Citizen Writes Interestingly of the Old Days

The Ada Record, Ada, Ohio Nov. 21, 1900

      Brief mention was made last week of the Record having received a letter from Mrs. M. Tremain who was the first pupil present on the first day of school at the first schoolhouse in Ada. Another letter has been received from Mrs. Tremain which is very interesting indeed. It is as follows:

Library hosts Halloween party Thursday

During trick or treat night on Thursday, the Ada Public Library will host a Halloween party with pizza, goodies, crafts, and a costume contest with prizes. The Library asks that you make them one of your stops on Oct. 25 between 4:30-7 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Fiends of the Library. 

Library Director Rhett Grant and his wife Jenny welcome Halloweeners last year.

ONU junior quarterback recognized.

Junior quarterback Anthony McFadden has been tabbed the OAC Offensive Player of the Week.


McFadden racked up a career-high 373 yards through the air and accounted for five Polar Bear touchdowns in last Saturday's 49-46 victory over OAC foe Capital in Columbus. The junior completed 24-of-34 passing attempts and toss four touchdowns in the weekend shootout. His remaining touchdown was scored on the ground as the third-year signal caller registered a one-yard rushing touchdown to give Northern a 49-39 lead late in the fourth quarter.

Gierson wins honor for 3rd time

Junior goalkeeper Meagan Grierson has claimed her third Ohio Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week award this season.


In a pair of 1-0 victories over Heidelberg and Capital last week, the junior netminder registered two clean sheets and six total saves while playing all 180 minutes in net. All six saves would come in Saturday's triumph over the Crusaders after she would go uncontested in Wednesday evening's win.

Freshman best in OAC last week

Freshman middle hitter Madi Ellis (Delphos/St. John's) has been awarded OAC Player of the Week honors.


Last week, Ellis paced the Polar Bear offense with 24 kills (3.43 kills per set), five blocks, and an impressive .524 hitting percentage in 3-2 and 3-0 victories over Heidelberg and Capital, respectively. In seven sets, the freshman would also register 42 total attacks with just two errors.

Ohio Northern is slated to return to action Tuesday evening, October 23 as they travel to Otterbein for a pivotal OAC clash.
