Ada —  

"For all those locked up for crimes you have committed, think of this. Suppose you were the victim. In the end you will face the final judge — God. It will be too late to complain then and there will be no appeals."


"Everyone in Ada looks forward every year to Relay for Life. It is family oriented and tasteful.

Not this year! The men who dressed as women was a disgraceful display and an insult to women. It was very distasteful.

The people who pomote this are sure hard up for ideas to raise money, if this is the best they can do."

B.C.: It is a shame you allow one activity to shape your view of such a wonderful fundraiser that raises many thousands of dollars each year for the American Cancer Society for research on this deadly disease. The activity you described has been done successfully for many years.
