'Gators competing in Kenton this weekend

The Ada swim team, known as The Gators, have their last meet of the season at the Kenton pool Friday and Saturday.

Swimmers from the eight league teams will vie for championship status from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. those two days.

So far this year, the Ada Gators are 50-50 against league foes.

Anyone good with roosters?

We have a lost rooster in the village that needs to be relocated to a farm home.  We have no idea how it got to Ada and if anyone can assist in taking the rooster, please call the Ada Police Department at 419-634-0010, Phone Option #2.

We interrupt this program

Heavy rain is on the northwestern Ohio weather radar on Monday evening, July 10.

Icon dog of the week - Molly

Meet Molly. Molly is a 1 year old female shepherd mix. She weighs 40 pounds, Molly is very shy, but lovable. Can you offer Molly 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.
