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.

Thank you volunteers and for all the Ada community support

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.

Darren Gibson

Letter: Red Cross learn to swim program needs volunteers

Icon viewers:

Summer is here and so is the time for Red Cross Swimming Lessons!  As in past years the Ada Learn To Swim Program is in need of aides to assist with the lessons.

Ages 12 and up, including adults are encouraged to sign up to help others learn swimming skills. As little as an hour each day of lessons is helpful.  Lessons begin the week of July 16 for 2 weeks, Monday through Friday each week.

Help is needed on deck for paperwork as well as in the water.  You do not need to be a good swimmer to help others...we'll help you as well:) A training session will be held on TUESDAY, July 10, from 9-11 am. 

VFW ‘Thank You” letter

The Ada VFW Ream McElroy Post 9381 held its second annual “Tee up for a Vet” Golf Scramble at the Colonial Golfer’s Club on Saturday. It turned out to be a beautiful day as 13 teams teed off at 10 a.m.


Along with many other golfer’s games along the way, on Hole # 4, we had a competition for a hole-in-one.  Tommy Tire of Ada provided a truck as the prize.

Sad to say, no one won the truck.


The team of Austin Oglesbee, Ryan Risner, Jeremy Wilson, and Troy Hunsicker won the first place prize of $300 with a round of 60.
