Landon Patterson, director of the Adams County Data Processing Board, requested the purchase of a software program for the scanning and storage of documents at the regular meeting of the Adams County Commissioners last week.
The program will allow for “reliable document imaging and sharing” between the clerk of courts, auditor’s and recorder’s offices, Patterson said, noting the software will not create a public portal, but is for internal use only.
PORTLAND— The Starfire boys basketball team braved the snows while most of the region postponed on Saturday night falling big to Jay County on the road 61-32.
Jay County, the up and coming ACAC squad, got a taste from the smallest conference school in SA taking a 17-10 lead after one quarter and never looking back en route to a 3-1 start to their season. The Stars fell to 2-3 on the year with the loss.
Due to weather and road conditions, the basketball game has been postponed Saturday night. The DDD will try to coordinate when this game will be replayed and resume broadcasting that night tentatively. Sorry for the inconvenience.
FORT WAYNE— Free throws down the stretch made the difference for Canterbury in a home win against Adams Central Friday night, 58-53.
Although the non-conference game is usually a good one between the Cavaliers and the Jets, the contest Friday held more meaning as Canterbury has joined the ranks of class 2A and could be a potential sectional opponent for the Starfires and Central later.
