Linda Dearth: "I've always been blessed"

Your invitation to her ReStore retirement party on Friday

By Monty Siekerman
They come through ReStore door - the rich and poor, short and tall, with canes and walkers or on their own two feet, some a little puggy or not, the young and old, some very old--to have a meal, socialize, and get a hug from Store Manager Linda Dearth. Now, Linda has announced her retirement.

A retirement reception, with refreshments, will be held in her honor from 4-6 p.m. on Friday at ReStore, 210 N. Main. All are invited.

"I've met some awesome people and have had wonderful people to work with," she said. "I've been very blessed."

Icon dog of the week - Sammy

Meet Sammy. Sammy is a  4 year old neutered male shepherd mix. He weighs 47 pounds.  No kids, please. Can you give Sammy a 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.

Get ready for the darkest event of the summer

THIS STORY FROM NIKON CAMERA - On Aug. 21, you’ll have the first chance in decades to view a total solar eclipse from within the continental US.

The last time a total solar eclipse was visible in the continental United States was in 1979.

If you miss it, you’ll have to wait until 2024 for another chance; that is unless you want to travel around the world to chase the next eclipse.

Nothing more American than apple pie

Japanese college students spending five weeks at ONU

By Monty Siekerman
Japanese students learn there is nothing as American as apple pie.

Here, Mana Hashimoto of Mie, Japan, learns how to make apple pie with crumb topping. Has she ever made a pie in her home country? No, one sees pies only in hotels or specialty bakery shops there.

Mana is one of 28 Japanese students studying at Ohio Northern for five weeks this summer as part of a program to acclimate international students to American college life.

hey were having a great time peeling apples and rolling out crust, soon to be a tasty treat rarely found in Japan.

Update on the at-large rooster

Note: Last week we asked if anyone was good with roosters. CLICK HERE for that story.

Update on Rooster - Still Available, running circles around our cops (specifically the Chief).

Good News - the owner of the Rooster has been identified. Seems the little guy got away when he discovered news of a Chicken Swap and wanted no part of it.

The owner is attempting to capture him now - Good Luck.

Hey, I've seen that car in Ada!

The Ada VFW Post 9381 third annual car show Saturday brought out many people displaying their vehicles,

Here are some of the cars on display.

• Kevin  Mierzejewski and daughter Angela, 1968 Chevy Impala Super Sport with only 61,000 original miles. You can find Kevin just about anywhere...on land, in the air, and on the sea. Besides having this Impala, he owns the Ada Airport, loves to fly ultralights, and has a boat, as well.
