Letter: Sad and somewhat angered that Ada athletics have gotten to this point

What we are experiencing is a systemic issue that has to be addressed

Icon viewers:
The news this week of the resignation of Coach White has prompted me to write this letter. I am sad and somewhat angered that Ada athletics have gotten to this point.  

My family, in one way or another, has been involved in Ada athletics since the late 1970s.  This has included myself, my siblings, my children, nieces and nephews and now my grandchildren. Our family has participated in football, basketball, baseball, tennis, soccer, volleyball, softball, track, cheerleading and even a bit of coaching at Ada.  

So it is easy to see and say that we care a great deal about Ada athletics.

Letter: A big thank to all those who made summer a little more like a “normal” summer with the pool being open

I just want to send out a big thank to all those who made summer a little more like a “normal” summer with the Ada swimming pool being open!

A big thank you to the Ada Village Council for having the courage to say “yes!” to having the pool open; knowing it was a big risk, knowing it was going to take a lot of work to get the pool ready, and knowing there was not much money to be made from this (if any).

A big thank you to the Village administration for all their work in preparing the pool. The entrance and exit set-up were both safe and smooth, following all the protocols necessary. Well designed!

Letter: Ada SAFE encourages masks in schools for first nine weeks

Early reports seemed to show little incidence rates of COVID-19 among children, leading health officials to speculate that children were less likely to contract and spread the illness.

However, recent surges in cases around the country have revealed a clearer picture about how COVID-19 impacts children. The most current data shows that now, unlike the early months of the pandemic, there is adequate testing for all individuals, not just those who are older adults or those who are hospitalized.

In a report released by the American Academy of Pediatrics released on July 17, 2020, children represent 8% of all confirmed COVID-19 cases.  

Letter: Table One restaurant is now open for good eating

Icon viewers:
Table One restaurant is now open for good eating.  We are now in our fifth
year of operation.  During the pandemic while we were closed down, we worked
to become fully certified by the local Health Department.  We have also been
a food distribution point for the West Ohio Food Bank.

The restaurant hours are 11:00 to 2:00 Tuesdays through Saturdays with an all
new menu.  However, we still have the famous T-1 burger and fries.  You can
check out our menu on our FaceBook – Table1ministries.  We hope to continue
or Thursday evening free community meal in the near future.

A message from doctors and nurse practitioners about covid-19

We are part of your communities. We know you, and you know us. As we all deal with COVID-19, we want to be a part of the solution; we want to educate and empower you to be a part of the solution also

Note: Ada Icon supports the opinions put forth in this letter.

We, your doctors and your nurse practitioners, are living and working together with you as the COVID-19 pandemic is unfolding.  

We are currently seeing an increasing number of people with this infection in Putnam county and surrounding areas.  We want to do everything we can to limit the spread of COVID-19 and need your help.  

What you do matters. The basic actions you keep hearing about, i.e. washing hands, social distancing, wearing masks, and staying home when you are sick, actually do much to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  

Our petition is just about freedom of choice

If you don’t feel comfortable sending your child to school and have the resources to keep them home, keep them home. We just want what is best for the majority of the community.

Thank you very much for allowing our group to express our concerns, there have been many  false premises regarding our petition.  "Unmasked" is a group
of concerned, like-minded parents, that have pulled our resources together to
fight for the rights of our children.
