The Walmart store in Decatur and the Adams County Community Foundation have begun an effort to collect donations of food and other products to be sent to United States military personnel from Adams County in time for Christmas. The project is called Salute Our Soldiers (SOS).
The goal is to have enough items for local service members to be able to share them with others in their units.
Longtime county commissioner Ed Coil, a Republican, and Democratic newcomer, Robert Frock, will square off on November 2 for the Second District commissioner seat.
Both men talked at the candidate forum provided by the Decatur Rotary Club last week.
Coil pointed out that he is a Korean War veteran, a 35-year employee and official for the former Zollner Corp. in Fort Wayne, and for 10 years was the general manager of the Detroit Pistons.
