Looking for employment?

Job fair response at the library indicates full employment here

By Monty Siekerman
Most everyone in Ada who wants a job must have one because only three people attended the three-hour jobs fair at the Ada Public Library on Thursday afternoon.

In comparison, about 40 people showed up in the first half hour at a similar jobs fair in Kenton, according to representatives from Jobs and Family Services, who sponsored the fair at the library.

The Village of Ada, The Inn, Adecco, ONU grounds department, and Vancrest of Ada all had representatives at the Ada jobs fair seeking employees. One sees many Help Wanted signs around town, especially at McDonalds and Dollar General, but they did not attend.

Ada's snow-capped mountain

The snow-capped mountains of Ada. See the skier? Actually, this is just a tall pile of rocks to be used for the Willeke Street project. Stones are covered in this morning’s snow. The Ada Icon has readers from all 50 states each month, so we might need to explain to those who have never been here that Ada is hill-less, very much so...flat but good for growing corn.

Old Man Winter won't leave

Golden retriever Abby enjoys a game of football in the snow this morning. It’s more football weather than tennis time this year on April 19. You look out the window and think, “I’m going to cry.” Or, you can say, “How beautiful.” No matter how you look at it, Old Man Winter doesn’t want to leave this year. 2018 may just be one of those years when we go from cold right into hot summer. Stay tuned.

Ada...a year ago.
