Another week, another opponent.
Decatur resident Jason Brune appeared before the Adams County Commissioners Monday afternoon with an information packet he had assembled in an attempt to dissuade county officials from the concept of locating the proposed jail/superior court complex in the downtown area.
After a week of cold, wet weather, Monday’s temperatures were more conducive to spring activities. Youth baseball teams took to the diamond to practice for the upcoming seasons, including the two young hardballers spotted at Hanna-Nuttman Park.

The Braves made due with what they had at the plate Monday night rocking another conference victory over Columbia City at home, 3-1.
Ryan Okoniewski pitched a complete game victory for the Braves allowing just one run on seven scattered hits with zero walks and four K's.
"Tonight was a great game," Bellmont coach Ben Fawbush noted. "Ryan pitched extremely well and I couldn't have asked for more of him. His off-speed stuff was working well mixed with his fastball."
