Mayor John Schultz left Adams Memorial Hospital Friday afternoon after minor surgery.
He is expected to rest at home for a few days before returning to City Hall.
Third District Councilman Bill Crone took over for Schultz in the Mayor's Challenge Saturday morning against Berne Mayor Bill McKean. Mayor Pro Tem and Fourth District Councilman Ken Meyer represented the city at the Peace Monument rededication on Saturday.
County Treasurer Tom Krueckeberg recently updated the county commissioners on a few finance changes from the state.
Krueckeberg reported that the county can establish a payment plan for those in tax sale to keep them out of such a sale. People qualify for tax sale when they fall a year and a half or more behind on their taxes, so the county will sell their property to pay the debt and then those people have about a year to try to make up the debt to the county or move from that property.
With 42 sectional titles between them and both gunning for a state title run in their respective classes, Bellmont and Adams Central's county-rival grudge match on the volleyball court lived up to the billing.
For one set at least.
Despite a spirited effort from the Lady Jets in the opening set, Bellmont won a decisive three-set sweep at the Teepee 25-18, 25-12, 25-19.
