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.

Letter: School board manages a school system that exceeds expectation

Icon viewers:
I appreciate the Ada School Board/OSBA recognition for me/Ada Icon that was announced at this month's School Board meeting. Presenting the certificate and the listing in the OSBA Journal was kind, thoughtful, and considerate. 

As I said around the table at the end of the meeting, you, the board, and the fiscal officers do a terrific job managing a school system that EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS. 

You follow a legacy in Ada where public education has been in the forefront of community importance. When settlers first arrived in Ada, they began building small schoolhouses for their sons and daughters. That interest continues today.
