“Adopters have the opportunity to go home with a fantastic cat that is spayed or neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, and micro chipped,” said Jessie Sullivan, Director of Adoption and Placement Services at SICSA. “We invest a lot of time, money, and care into each of the animals at our facility, so adopters looking to add an adult cat to their family should definitely take advantage of this great, limited-time offer of fee-waived cat adoptions.”

Ichiro dons fake mustache, hoodie to sit in Mariners' dugout

A mysterious man was sitting in the Seattle Mariners’ dugout Thursday night, sporting a bushy mustache and wearing a hoodie. 

>> Read more trending news

And shades -- shades reminiscent of Bobby Valentine’s failed disguise in 1999 when he was ejected from a game and tried to sneak back into the dugout.

The mystery man was no stranger to Mariners fans -- Ichiro Suzuki, now an executive in the Seattle front office.

Suzuki sneaked into the Seattle dugout Thursday to watch the first inning of the Mariners’ game at Yankee Stadium against the New York Yankees, The New York Post reported.

"He was perfect. I never would have known it was him,'' Valentine texted to the The Associated Press.

Officially, Suzuki, 44, is not allowed to be in the dugout during games, ESPN reported. He was removed from the Mariners’ roster in May and moved into the front office as a special assistant to the team chairman, the AP reported.

AP photographer Bill Kostroun spotted Suzuki hiding in the dugout during the first inning. He had exited the dugout by the second inning as the Mariners lost 4-3 to the Yankees.Perhaps Suzuki had dropped a hint when he moved into his new position.

"During the game I will be doing the same preparations I've been doing the entire time. Nothing is going to change for me that I did as a player," Suzuki said. "But I can't say for certain that maybe I won't put on a beard and glasses and be like Bobby Valentine and be in the dugout."

Valentine, who was managing the New York Mets in 1999, was ejected from a game in the 12th inning. He later put on a fake mustache and sunglasses and attempted to sit in the dugout.

Valentine was caught and was suspended for two games. He also was fined $5,000.

New Dayton Inspires mural revealed for local brewpub’s 6th birthday

They’re big, they’re iconic and they’re one of people’s favorite ways to flaunt their Gem City swagger. 

>>Dayton Inspires wants your crazy, ‘off-the-wall’ photos

The Dayton Inspires murals can be spotted around downtown Dayton, where people frequently stop to pose beneath the scrawled slogan. Announced earlier this week, a brand new mural is in the works at Fifth Street Brewpub

>>These 3 projects to make Dayton better just won funding

“No we aren't entering a blue period or feeling sad. We are preparing for the upcoming installation of our patio mural with Dayton Inspires. Thanks to member-owner Caleb Stapleton for doing the base painting today,” read a Fifth Street Brewpub Facebook post. 

In addition to unveiling the brand new ink, Fifth Street Brew will be celebrating their sixth anniversary all day Saturday, June 23rd. 

“Come celebrate all day long as we have a tap list full of FSB beers including some new and some throwbacks, a special food menu, live music 6 to 9 p.m. with Nothing But Treble, and Dayton-centric prize giveaways,” read a Fifth Street Brewpub Facebook post.

>>Mexican restaurant to build a new area location 

In 2012, Fifth Street Brewpub, located at 1600 E. Fifth Street, opened in the St. Anne’s Hill neighborhood as Dayton’s first co-op brewery. The initiative started to save a historic building, and has since grown to be a whistle-wetting staple in the community. 

Soon, the brewery will add to the collection of Dayton Inspires murals scattered about the city including 5th Street in the Oregon District on the side of Brim, one on the side of the Cannery building on 3rd St. and one located on Courthouse Square at the entrance of Catapult Creative’s office.

You can see the oldest American-made locomotive at Rail Festival this weekend

The oldest existing American built locomotive, the B&O #1, John Quincy Adams, is one of the transportation treasures that will be on display this weekend during the Carillon Park Rail Festival

The origin of the John Quincy Adams, how it took on an unusual nickname, and its’ twisting path to Dayton is an intriguing adventure. 

“The Baltimore & Ohio, the first commercial railroad in the United States, ran a contest in the early 1830s to design an engine, “said Bob Limoseth, a volunteer at Carillon Historical Park. 

»»RELATED:  7 things to know about Dayton’s trailblazing travel history

“Phineas Davis, a watch maker from York, Pennsylvania submitted a design which was different from all the others in that the rods and the pistons ran in an up and down position as opposed to a horizontal position. From that design it gained the nickname the “grasshopper.” 

The John Quincy Adams was one of seven locomotives built with this unique design and put into service. Originally it was on a line from Baltimore to Washington D.C. carrying passengers who paid $2.50 for a ticket. 

Over the years its name was removed and changed as the engines with this design were scrapped. 

The provenance of the John Quincy Adams became even more muddled in 1893 when it was altered to appear as an 1833 locomotive named Traveler, to appear in what was billed as the “greatest historical railroad show in the world” at the Chicago World’s Fair. 

»»RELATED:  Cash registers marry artistry and commerce

The “grasshopper” returned to Baltimore and sat in a scrap yard before it was placed in a museum unrestored, according to Dayton History research. 

In 1947 Col. Edward Deeds, chairman of the board of The National Cash Register Company, approached the B&O for a train engine for his new museum. 

The railroad company had Traveler available and Deeds sent it off for restoration. During rebuilding the true identity of the locomotive was revealed. Deeds had acquired the John Quincy Adams.

“The uniqueness of the train, the uniqueness of the design, and the fact that it is the only remaining American made steam engine from that time period makes it special,” said Limoseth. 

Today the B&O #1, John Quincy Adams, is on display in the James F. Dicke Family Transportation Center at Carillon Historical Park. A Barney & Smith wooden parlor car, an Interurban and more transportation history are also on display in the center. 

The two-day rail festival will feature live steam engines, model train displays, and free miniature train rides.
