Letter: Volunteerism furthers the mission of non-profits

Volunteerism! Most of, if not all non-profits depend on the volunteers to further their mission. Without volunteers the Boy Scouts of America would not be able to serve millions of youth nationwide over the past 120 years with the leadership, character, citizenship and fitness training that makes youth prepared for life and the leaders of tomorrow.  

Letter: Thank you to Ada police officers

I just want to say thank you to our police officers. They are always ready to help and they really seem to get know the people in Ada.

They are great officers for our kind of town. Thank you all and be safe.

Letter: 3rd annual Days of Caring

Dear Ada Icon readers,

The United Way of Hardin County “Days of Caring” is a yearly event that takes place each June. This event started with around 20 volunteers  and is continually growing with last year's event having 100 volunteers completing 9 service projects in Hardin County. Days of Caring is established to promote the spirit and value of local volunteerism.  We aim to increase the awareness of local human service agencies and schools while demonstrating what people working together for the community’s good can accomplish.  Our goal this year is to double last year's volunteers and service projects.

Letter to the Icon: Proposed election maps don't fairly represent Ohioans

In a democracy, should elected representatives listen to the will of the

State Senators Matt Huffman (Allen County) and Rob McColley (Hardin County)
say no.

They've proposed new election maps that don't fairly represent Ohioans.
Instead, these rigged districts continue the "gerrymandering" that means that
in many Ohio elections, the winner is pre-determined.
