Locating a new jail and court building downtown may not be ideal in all ways, but its a far better option than constructing it out of town, Decatur City Councilman Cam Collier said Tuesday in lending the city’s support to the decision by county officials to place the building on First Street.
County officials have not announced any specific location, but speculation holds that it will be a block or two south of Monroe Street.
The annual Decatur Easter Egg Hunt, sponsored by WZBD radio, will be held at noon Saturday at Riverside Center.
Limberlost State Historic Site will sponsor an egg hunt at 11 a.m. Saturday at the baseball diamond in Geneva. Guests may also arrive early and enjoy seeing critters such as bunnies, Silkie chickens and guinea pigs at a petting zoo provided by Roll Farms of Marion.
