The impact of two serious “illnesses” at the same time is very significant

Not unlike humans, a culture can suffer illness too. Current events prove the point

Letter: Successful May 18 Ada blood drive

Icon viewers:
We had a very successful blood drive on Monday despite the rain. Almost everyone who was on the schedule came in and gave their donation and the majority of those people signed up for our July 20th blood drive.

The Red Cross informed me that those donations helped save 126 lives. Thank you all.

And a very special Tthank you to the Ada VFW  for hosting it. 

The Red Cross personnel deserve a huge thank you. Setting up and tearing down for a blood drive is a tremendous amount of work. Kudos to all of those people...dedicated and hard working.

The following is a letter to the editor from Meri Skilliter, Ada school superintendent.

Icon viewers:
I wanted to take this opportunity to clear up some misinformation that has circulated regarding the Ada School’s levy that will appear on the ballot on Tuesday:

Misinformation: “This levy should not be called a “renewal” because the one expiring was for a five-year term, and this one the Board of Education is asking to put on for a continuing period of time.”
