Terra State announces guest artist for arts festival

Preparations are well underway for Terra State Community College’s annual “Celebration of the Arts” Festival, April 5-14. 

Each spring the college celebrates the fine, digital, performance, and culinary and literary arts with exhibits, presentations, performances and activities. This year includes special features such as the unveiling of a new monumental sculpture in Building D, collaborations with the Northcoast Arts Alliance in presenting a new regional Arts Showcase and Symposium and the annual recital and art show with Fremont City School’s art and music educators.

National Mobility Awareness Month

May is National Mobility Awareness Month. As such, on the website of the same name; there are thumbnail sketches of hundreds of deserving people who hope to win a wheelchair lift van. The top vote-getters will be considered for the prize. Of course, one of those "local heroes" featured is near and very dear to us, our granddaughter, Sarah Elizabeth Huffman. She's a cancer survivor with Pitt Hopkins Syndrome and a jazzy purple wheelchair. She and her family have a tired, old van that no longer meets the needs of a growing family with a handicapped child. I urge your readers to go to the following website, http://www.mobilityawarenessmonth.com/entrant/sarah-huffman-englewood-oh/, read why Sarah and her family deserve to win; and vote for her. Voting continues until May 10th, and winners will be announced May 31st. Thank you for participating in something that could make a big difference for a deserving family!

Spring events at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge!

Red-winged Blackbirds have started to sing and the goldfinches have begun turning a bright sunny yellow. All winter we have waited for these signs of spring. 

Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge (ONWR) is happy to announce that they are offering more free public programming than ever before during this spring. ONWR’s completely remodeled website, www.fws.gov/refuge/ottawa, has updates on refuge events, guided hikes and bus tours. All programs offer insight into the National Wildlife Refuge System and bring you up close to native wildlife.
