Every high school student at South Adams will soon be getting a laptop computer for school use.
The one-to-one laptop program moved forward at a meeting on Tuesday when school board members approved a four-year lease agreement with Medical and Municipal Funding to purchase 420 computers.
Additionally, 100 computers will be purchased to replace some of the computers in a lab at the middle school.
The Back 40 Junction, which has been in business for approximately 60 years, is unfortunately losing a piece of its well-known vintage decor as the executive railroad car, located on the north side of the restaurant, is being dismantled and removed this week.
Clete Miller, the original proprietor of the historic attraction, said that back when he was establishing the restaurant he heard of a railroad company in Garrett that rented the railroad cars for weddings and celebrations, similar to the Trolley Cars in Fort Wayne.
