More than two dozen boys and girls from Adams County got some warm clothes and a toy or two at the Decatur Walmart store on Sunday, courtesy of the Adams County Fraternal Order of Police. The FOP accepts donations and raises money throughout the year to hold the annual event, in which children in need are treated to an hour-long shopping spree with an officer from one of the law enforcement agencies in the county. Following their shopping trip, the children were treated to pizza at Pizza King.
Nearly .25 inches of freezing rain and light snow moved into the area during the overnight hours, coupled with a low temperature around 20 degrees, making for poor road conditions throughout Adams County this morning. The icy roads resulted in all three county schools closing for the day, as well as those in neighboring Jay and Blackford counties in Indiana and Van Wert and Mercer counties in Ohio. Schools in Allen and Wells Counties remained on a two-hour delay at press time this morning
