Going on an Ada bear hunt - send the Icon addresses of bears in windows

Send the Icon addresses where you've seen a bear in a window. If you can take photo of it, even better. Send to: info@adanicon.com.

It's a great distraction for bored children – or for bored people of any age.

'We're Going On A Bear Hunt" has hit Ada. The Icon is aware of several bears - even the polar bear type, that have popped up in town.

Certainly viewers are aware of other bears showing up around Ada.

Ohioans encouraged to wear cloth masks in public

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has urged Ohioans to begin wearing cloth masks while in public, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

The CDC issued the recommendation that citizens wear face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, especially in areas of significant community-based transmission. 

"In many cultures around the world, wearing a mask is just part of the culture - it is a socially accepted act of kindness," said Governor DeWine. "Wearing a mask should not scare people.  It is a good thing.  It is a considerate thing.  It is a courageous thing." 

Open for business

The bridge over Hog Creek on the west side of Ada, on County Road 15, has reopened to traffic. The bridge was closed in mid-March for draininge work.
