The enthusiasm bubbled as Mayor John Schultz and Adams County Economic Development Director Larry Macklin discussed at Tuesday night's Decatur City Council meeting their trip to China last week.
Both men labeled the trip highly successful and at one point Macklin talked about "a definite lead towards cultivating a possible new business" in Decatur.
Despite what Fire Chief Les Marckel described as dry conditions as severe as he's ever seen, Decatur's Fourth of July fireworks celebration is still a "go" ... for now.
The fireworks are scheduled for two weeks from tonight and no one is ready to cancel yet.
"Let's hope for some rain between now and then," chief organizer Adam Eguia said at Tuesday night's city council meeting.
Decatur police today released the name of the individual involving in the stabbing incident early Sunday morning in the 200 block of N. 17th Street.
Police Chief Ken Ketzler said Shelby Affolder, 20, heard a knock on the front door of her apartment and went to answer it around 12:25 a.m. After opening it, a man appeared, stabbed Affolder in the abdomen with a knife and then fled.
