Bike safety tips prompt a reality check

As an enthusiastic if fairly timid cyclist, I was interested to find a list of bicycle safety safety tips in the Icon’s inbox from the Allen County Health Department. With my “step through” ladies’ frame and wicker basket, I probably resemble Miss Gulch from the Wizard of Oz, minus the bright-eyed terrier captive. In a town the size of Ada, a bike is a great transportation option. In the days of $4/gallon gas, it’s looking even better.

A visit to the Ada Rotary Club

By Paula Scott, Ada Icon

As the new Ada Icon editor, I was invited to attend a weekly meeting of the Ada Rotary Club. While I’ve known about the Rotary for as long as I can remember, this was my first time attending a meeting. The experience taught me that I had a lot to learn about Rotary International and the Ada club.

My first impression: great turnout for a weekly meeting. Fourteen of the club’s seventeen members came for lunch, club business, and a presentation by Hardin County board of elections director Stephanie McCullough and board member Michael Hubbell.
