Possibility that spring sports could extend to June and July

With Ohio's no-contact period extending to May 1

Ada schools released information on spring athletics. This is information from the school website.

Yesterday’s announcement by Governor DeWine extended mandatory school closures through May 1.

As a result:
 The mandated No-Contact period has been extended through this date (May 1). This is to assist with the Governor’s ‘stay at home’ order, to prohibit coaches from privately meeting with student-athletes and to put all schools on an equal level relative to future competitive opportunities.

Ada Schools: "No plans to cancel graduation; may have to move the date"

Heres updates on graduation requirements, spring tests, cancellations

Here is the March 31 update from Ada schools, from the school website. Information about spring athletics is in the story below, or click here.

Spring Testing
 There will be no state spring testing. This, then, negates the third grade guarantee. If you are the parent of a third grade student and have questions, please reach out to Mr. Thaxton.

Rising country singer has recorded a song about Ada

All due to a fluke vehicle breakdown north of town on SR 235

Thanks to a fluke vehicle breakdown north of Ada on State Route 235 last summer, a rising star on the national country music scene will soon release an album featuring one song about Ada.

That rising star is Sal Walker and his band April Shortbread.

Late Sunday evening last July 21, Jamie Hall stopped to help a group traveling in a Tuscany Thor Motor Coach stalled near the Hardin-Hancock county line.

Assessing the situation, Hall drove to the Beaverdam travel center. There he explained the breakdown problem to a mechanic who returned with Hall and repaired the stranded vehicle.
