A new day, a new month and another deadline passed. "And I don't see anything has happened," Decatur Mayor John Schultz said at Tuesday night's city council meeting, referring to the George Craig property at Second and Jackson streets.
Councilman Ken Meyer raised the issue, asking at the meeting if anything had been done to clean up the place.
"I haven't seen any progress; we're going to have to address that," the mayor said, promising a visit to the home yet this week.
It’s that time of year — late summer — when morning and evening skies often tend to take on an eerie look and feel. Such was the case Wednesday morning, as shown in this photo looking north down 1st Street in Decatur.
