Permanent Improvement Levy is important to Ada schools

Icon viewers:

The Nov. 6 ballot includes an important issue for voters in the Ada Exempted
Village Schools community who have the opportunity to help the district
continue its excellence.

This is not a new tax or a tax increase. Renewal of the five-year, 2.9-mill
permanent improvement levy will ensure the district has the needed funds for
textbooks, new technology, security upgrades, new buses, building repairs and
school equipment.

Voters in Ada have approved permanent improvement levies since 1975, with
strong support. Doing so also has helped ensure a strong community.

Letter: Continue the excellence in our schools

Support November’s Ada school levy

Dear Ada Community,
It didn’t take me long to learn that our vision of “Aspiring to excel in all areas of the school experience” is not just words.  

Ada Schools really lives this vision. We share it with students and staff alike, and refer to it when making decisions. Recent successes at Ada Schools include improvements in technology, significant increases in the number of College Credit Plus courses offered on campus, a new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) series of classes, additions to middle school electives, and continued implementation of the Literacy Collaborative to improve reading skills for elementary students.  

Letter to the Editor

Support United Way in 2019

Dear Editor,

   During the last few years, as a board member of The United Way of Hardin County, I have been so pleased with the support we have received from our county residents and business.  Hardin County people taking care of Hardin County people!   

  In the words by Nelson Mandela,  "It is in your hands to create a better world for all who live in it" is an immeasurable characteristic of Hardin County! With your assistance, United Way can continue to fulfill it's mission, mobilizing the caring power of our community. Through the communities support, our 21 non-profit agencies are able to continue the many services provided to our residents.

Letter: 75 students participated in Red Cross swim lessons

Thank you volunteers and for all the Ada community support

Icon viewers:

2018 Red Cross Learn To Swim Program is completed for this summer.  75 students participated in the nine days of lessons!  We had great weather again this year, although a cooler second week.  I would like to thank the Village of Ada for the facility to hold the lessons.  The pool staff had the facility open and ready for the volunteers and swimmers each morning.  The water was wonderful, the pool area was always clean and ready for our use and the lifeguards were very attentive to the swimmers.       

Ada EMS chief's message to the community

Addressing negative and unjust information

Letter to the Editor -
To the residents of Ada and Liberty Township

By Thomas Miller
Chief, Ada/Liberty EMS

I would like to share some information to dispel the negative and unjust information that seems to be floating around Facebook and the community.

Ada/Liberty EMS is a volunteer emergency medical crew consisting of 14 skilled medical providers of various levels. We are the second busiest EMS department in Hardin County next to BKP on 911 calls with about 600 runs a year, or about 50 calls a month. Our 14 members cover the majority of these runs all hours of the day and night.

Thank you, Christina Haught, who found my ring!

I would like to thank Christina Haught, who found my lost key ring and turned it in to the Ada

Police Department. All my very important keys where on this large key ring. You could have easily thrown them away,

and not worried about it, but you proved you are a kind, caring, and considerate person by turning them in!

I hope that you will know how very much I appreciated it, and how much you gave me back hope that

there still are some wonderful people in this world! Thank you Christina, God bless you.
