3 Brothers Family Pizza collecting care packages for overseas battalion

Brian Clum: “I’ve been deployed twice. I know what it’s like after the holidays. It’s a long period.”

Brian Clum knows the feeling of being deployed away from home during and after the Christmas holidays. 

“I’ve been deployed twice. I know what it’s like after the holidays. It’s a long period,” said Clum. “I want soldiers to know that they are thought of and appreciated.”

As a retired 31-year armed services veteran, the owner of 3 Brothers Family Pizza decided to do something about it.

This winter he and his wife, Kelly, started an organization called Friends of 1-145 AR RGT (EIN 84-3584886).

That’s a long title that translates in support of their son’s  (Corp. Matthew Clum, Ada HS graduate) battalion currently deployed overseas.

Talking silently 

New skill for Ada High School students

Students are not only learning a new language, but learn about a culture that exists in thousands of communities across the U.S.  It’s not just an academic lesson, but a life lesson.

By Barbara Lockard
Fifty Ada High School students have been learning a language that requires hand gestures, facial expressions and whole-body engagement.  

American Sign Language (ASL) is being offered as a foreign language credit and has really caught on with the students.  As the third most spoken language in the U.S., ASL is becoming increasingly popular as a foreign language option in high schools and colleges across the country.
