 Protect baby birds - Keep cats inside

Icon viewers: 

It's a wonderful time of the year, with baby birds leaving their nests and learning how to fly. But unfortunately, it's easy for cats to catch the baby birds. This is a great time of year to keep your cat inside, and give the birds a chance to fly.

Letter: Thanks to all you assisted us in snow removal

Ada Icon viewers:
Thank you to all who have assisted us in snow removal by moving your vehicles off of the street; we all benefit from your efforts.

Please remember to clear the snow from your sidewalks. For you younger folks, take care of the elderly in your neighborhood by clearing their sidewalks too.

Thanks again and enjoy the snow.

Letter: I remember the Carol Channing concert at Freed Center

Icon viewers:
Note: The Icon asked viewers if they attended the first-ever Freed Center concert, which feature Carol Channing. Don Traxler offers this remembrance:

 My wife Myra, my son, Ty, and I attended the sold-out Carol Channing Concert at the opening of the Freed Center on April 27, 1991.  Ty was 14 years old and Myra and I basically had to force him to go with us.
