The early bird gets...the blackberries

(Answer to the question: Where is the art? Presser Hall on the ONU campus.)

By Mary Pannabecker Steiner
One of my brothers lives in the mountains of Virginia where he regularly picks a variety of wild berries on his runs up the mountainside and into the woods.  This never really impressed me because I don’t like blackberries and raspberries so why bother picking them?

Okay, here's my opinion on how the college football playoffs should work

By Jake Dowling, Icon intern
If anyone watches college football, many would agree that the sport is fun to watch, with all of the upsets and great matchups. But, one would also know that it can be frustrating at times as well, especially if your team was not selected by a hand full of computers to play in the National Title Game.

University presidents and Notre Dame approved a playoff system, set to take place for the beginning of the 2014 football season, on June 27. This playoff system would pin the four best schools against each other in two semi-final games. Then the winners of the semi-finals would go on to play in the National Title Game.

Anything on Wheels Poker Run planners "get things done"

Brett and Dana Walters are  ReStore June Volunteers of the Month.

Their most recent endeavor was planning and coordinating the First ever Anything on Wheels Poker Run which was held last Saturday. This event was coordinated by Brett and Dana.

Because of their hard work, caring attitudes, and determination to get things done, the Poker Run was a huge success.

"You may call me Inspector Jacques Clouseau"

"You may call me Inspector Jacques Clouseau of the Pink Panther,"  insisted visiting Major LeBlanc, who spoke at a combined Ada Rotary-Kiwannis meeting on June 26 at The Inn at ONU.

He said this, speaking in a French accent. In fact, he started out his talk in French, switching to English - as an obvious joke. His opening lines broke the ice as he related his friendship with Mike Harnishfeger, Ada police chief.

LeBlanc talked about his one and one-half year experience in Afganistan. A video showing several Ada gifts being presented to the major are at the bottom of this story.

A story on the top of the home page includes the substance of his talk.
