An Ada Halloween story

The little girl twirling in her blue skirt

Note: Here's an Ada Halloween story. Leland Crouse alerted the Icon about it, which was originally posted in Betty Miller's Small Town Sampler on Oct. 24, 1990. 

Sitting in a group of friends one of the ladies brought up a story about seeing a ghost at her downtown apartment. I had to hear the whole story and went to visit my friend.

My friend’s husband bought a building in Ada. For several years the couple had lived on the second floor apartment while they remodeled the third floor, a former lodge hall where meetings and entertainment were held from 1905 until sometime in the 1940s.

A real "town and gown" event

Some thoughts, photos and a neat video from Friday

All kidding aside, it was the real “town and gown” event.

Before we ring your doorbell for Halloween, let’s revisit Friday’s world-record football toss attempt.

It involved all Ada school classes from 2019 to 2032, more ONU students and faculty than you could count, just about every village official you could name plus a supporting community cast who wouldn’t have missed it for the world-record setting event it was billed to be.

To help set the stage, imagine bussing nearly 1,000 Ada students from the school to the football stadium. That started at 11:30 a.m., with kick off – in this case, pass off – slated for 2 p.m.
