Funeral services for Wayne H. Hirschy, 91, of Decatur, who died Tuesday, will be held at 10 a.m. Monday at Monroe United Methodist in Monroe.
An incorrect time for the funeral was listed in Thursday’s edition. We apologize for the error.
Decatur Mayor John Schultz, honored Thursday night with the Chamber of Commerce's annual Stephen Decatur Award, said he sees the honor as "the acknowledgment that there is still much more to do."
The award, first presented in 1988 to Rita Setser, is presented for outstanding service to the community. It is named for naval war hero Commodore Stephen Decatur.
Schultz, who served 16 years as a city councilman, is in his sixth year as mayor.
What started as an investigation by Department of Natural Resources (DNR) officers into an illegal turtle selling operation ... yes, turtles .. .turned into a drug arrest for a Monroe resident, according to Monroe Town Marshal Dio Hernandez.

Bellmont came a few free throws short of upsetting DeKalb at the Teepee on Thursday night as the Barons escaped with a 65-61 win over the Braves in NHC action.
The Braves were down by as many as 10 points early in the fourth quarter but some gutsy baskets kept the game interesting down the stretch including a basket plus the foul for Logan Baker that cut the lead to five points at 51-46.
