Question: What do those years have in common?
Answer: They are all anniversaries not only of Decatur, but also Adams County, since both came into being in 1836, 20 years after Indiana became a state in 1816.
Decatur held celebrations for the centennial in 1936 and for the sesquicentennial in 1986 and, now, city leaders are gearing up to celebrate the 175th birthday next year.
A new wave in family practice medicine in Adams County is on the horizon as it was learned that the first woman general practitioner in county history will locate her office in Decatur after the first of the year.
Dr. Crystal Jencks has signed a contract with Adams Memorial Hospital to become the latest physician who is a hospital employee. She will start her practice in the middle of January in suite C of the Physician's Office Building at 815 High Street.
