Steel-driving good time


Bob Lucas, Mad River Theater Works creative director, left, and actor Ernest Jordan perform the original one-act play with music John Henry for Adriel School students Thursday morning. In the legend of John Henry, the prowess of the steel driver who worked on the railroad was measured in a race against a steam-powered hammer. John Henry won the contest, only to die in victory with his hammer in his hand after his heart stopped. Mad River Theater Works also presents John Henry at 7 p.m. Thursday at the MRTW building, 2790 Sandusky St., Zanesfield. There is a $10 suggested donation for the all-ages show. This summer, the theater company will conduct a residency with Adriel students as well. (PHOTO | ADRIEL SCHOOL)

Students attend We Are the Majority Rally


Approximately 75 students from Indian Lake, Benjamin Logan and Bellefontaine City schools recently participated in the third annual We Are the Majority Conference and Rally in Columbus to represent the thousands of youth who are the “majority” in being drug and alcohol free.


The Logan County Drug Free Youth Coalition helped to arrange the students’ trip to the rally hosted by the Ohio Youth-Led Prevention Network.


The local pupils joined about 1,800 students from across the state for a march to the Ohio Statehouse to share with lawmakers and public safety advocates. Participants also listened to various speakers and a concert by recording artist Mario.


We Are the Majority aims to combat the misconception that a majority of young people are making detrimental decisions that affect the rest of their lives. Research has continuously shown that a vast majority of youth are making positive, healthy choices to be drug and alcohol free.
