The Adams County Courthouse was evacuated late Wednesday morning and remained closed for the rest of the day after a gas line near the rear of the building was ruptured. The evacuation was the second in Decatur in two weeks, coming on the heels of a Nov. 18 incident which saw residents of Master Drive and Mix and Lewis streets forced from their homes after a similar gas line mishap. See Page 2 for more on Wednesday’s evacuation.

BERNE— The Starfire swim squads defended their home pool on Tuesday night against county-rival Adams Central in a tight girls meet, 84-82, while the boys coasted to a 104-73 victory.
Despite their limited numbers this season, South Adams has been dominant in their individual events leaving the final numbers a bit misleading this season. The Lady Stars finally earned a “W” to go along with the excellent times against Central.
