Letter: RENEW 4-H - Vote YES on Issue 6

Hardin County Voters:

On November 6, I ask for your support on Issue 6, OSU Extension Levy. This RENEWAL levy generates financial support for programs in our county such as 4-H, Agriculture & Natural Resources, Family Consumer Science, and SNAP Education. Because of the local share, financial support is returned to our county in matching state, federal and grant dollars. Without local dollars, the state and federal dollars would not be provided to OSU Extension.

Letter: Issue 1 on Nov. 6 is wrong for crime victims

Icon viewers:

Issue 1 on the Nov. 6 ballot does not just reduce sentences for non-violent drug crimes, it also shortens the amount of time spent in prison by 25% for almost all violent crimes.  

Thousands of criminals could be released early for Aggravated Murder (but not “murder,”) Aggravated Rape (but not “rape,”) Human Trafficking, Kidnapping, Felonious Assault, Aggravated Robbery, and every other horrific felony crime you can think of, due to its specific language.

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.
