    Without a storm water management director since the mid-December resignation of Joan Eichhorn, it now appears Decatur soon will be without its storm water committee, too.

Fuelling’s charge keys mat Jets past Lions 56-21

January 5, 2012

    LEO-CEDARVILLE — Adams Central heavyweight Joe Fuelling fought for some leverage then chucked the bigger Bryce Hager to the mat twice in the final minute for a 9-6 win Wednesday, igniting a seven-match win skein as the Jets dumped ACAC rival Leo 56-21.
    The win put the Jets clearly in control of the ACAC regular-season race with a 5-0 mark. A victory tonight over Heritage would clinch the crown for the Jets, now 19-2 overall.

Fire death fifth in 26 months

January 4, 2012

    It confounds and disappoints Decatur Fire Chief Les Marckel and the entire Decatur Fire Department: a department which had gone 20 or more years without a fatality in a home fire has now had five in a little more than 26 months.  Dean Ingmire, a longtime member of the Decatur Police Department, is the latest, having died in a fire in his home early Tuesday morning.

Building vote said likely next fall

    That possibility came to light near the end of Tuesday night's Decatur City Council meeting when new councilman Cam Collier asked Mayor John Schultz the status of the ongoing discussions.
    Schultz replied that monthly meetings are being held, with the next one coming up soon, and it appeared that the matter would be taken to the voters in the fall.
