Kids and their music these days.
Seems some Ladd residents were none too happy with the music the village was piping out of speakers along Main Street in recent months. The “Music on Main” program had featured holiday music, Rat Pack tunes, and a summer playlist. The songs created a soundtrack of sorts for Main Street from 11 to 8 every day and, according to Village Clerk Diane Chandler, the effort had received great feedback.
Just like ants at a picnic, though, some folks had to ruin it. Five locals who didn’t like the music told them to keep it down at recent village board meetings. And so the speakers went off. And the quiet village of Ladd is a bit quieter now.
