Bluffton participates in "Virtual Ride of Silence" tonight

Honoring cyclists or trikers injured or who lost their lives in accidents

Bluffton cyclists and trikers are invited to join in the Northwest Ohio Virtural Ride of Silence at 6:45 p.m., Wednesday, May 20, according to Corwin Croy.

"If riding on the Lions Way Bike path and or community streets, you are advised to ride as an individual and to provide ample space for seniors, couples, families, families with baby carriages, dog walkers, and other cyclists," he said. 


Here yesterday, gone today

With floods in our memories, what should we call yesterday's Riley Creek conditions?

Bluffton’s flood experiences require news outlines like the Icon to select with care words fitting the weather conditions of the day.

To call Tuesday’s waterflow a flood might be overkill. To call it a deluge, well, that too, is in question. Same with torrent, saturation of water, flash flood and even high waters.

To view the bank of the Riley overflowing into the Buckeye once upon a time was a rare and frightful experience. Not so in 2020. Tuesday’s rain blocked roadways, but hardly touched East College Avenue at Harmon Field. Same to Vance Street and Cherry.

Today's BHS seniors in the spotlight

Here's today's installment of the Bluffton High School Class of 2020 Senior Spotlight. Each weekday until the end of May the Icon will feature photos and future plans for four BHS seniors.  Students will be featured in a four-set random order.
