Letter: 4-H programing cancelled through July 6; 4-H camps cancelled through Aug. 31

Dear 4-H members, families, volunteers, and supporters:

It is with a heavy heart that I share this news with you.

Due to ongoing health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision has been made to cancel all Ohio State University Extension in-person programming through July 6. 

This includes all 4-H programs, activities, and events. Additionally, we’ve made the very difficult decision to cancel all 4-H camps through Aug. 31. 

Although in-person programming is canceled, we will continue to offer virtual 4-H experiences.

Ada superintendent addresses school levy "misinformation"

The board of elections determined that this levy would be considered a renewal

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.”

Letter: Ada Police Department stands ready to assist our residents

Ada Icon viewers:
FROM THE ADA BULLDOGS FACEBOOK - I just wanted to pass on that the Mayor and I attended a briefing this morning in Hardin County related to the COVIS-19 situation and to advise you of two important bits of information that we learned.

1. An important phone number for any and all questions related to the virus is 1-833-427-5634. This is the public information number for the Ohio Department of Health Call Center which has been established specifically for COVIS-19 issues.

Letter: Need for a balanced perspective on school levy

Ada Schools will need to regain our trust before we can support any, let alone a permanent, tax levy

Ada Community:
We write not to direct an outcome, but to ensure a balanced perspective. Ada Schools has a levy set for our vote this March. However, it is out opinion that the approach to this levy has thus far proven concerning. The levy is being placed on the ballot as a “continuous renewal”. This means that the tax is essentially permanent. 

Letter: Levy is not a new tax

Monies generated are for general operations

Dear Ada Community:
On March 17, 2020, the Ada School District is seeking a renewal of a .75% income tax levy for a continuing period of time.  This is NOT new tax, but a renewal, which means NO new monies. The monies generated from this levy will be used for general operating expenses.
