PATCHING ...

March 29, 2011

A crew of men from the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) was at work on Monday along US 27 north of Decatur cleaning debris from roadside cracks with a high-pressure blower, then filling the cracks with a black tar-like substance. The busy highway's northbound side was down to just one lane where the work was under way. INDOT officials said traffic will be restricted through mid-August for concrete patching. Motorists are urged to slow down and stay alert for traffic changes in the area. Officials said no detours are anticipated.

Fiber optics line OK sought

    A presentation was made to the Adams County Commissioners on Monday on a multi-use fiber-optic communications line that's being proposed to run through the county from Jay County up to Fort Wayne.
    The commissioners will vote soon on whether to approve the plans of Community Fiber Solutions (CFS), a firm founded in Ohio last October and registered for operation in Indiana in November. The firm provides telephone, television, and Internet access.

Required checks could pose problem

March 29, 2011

    The county commissioners discussed at their meeting on Monday a provision of county insurance coverage that would require all people within county government who deal with children to have criminal background checks by law enforcement agencies.
    Steve Krull, superintendent of the Decatur-Adams County Parks and Recreation Department, said, for example, that he has 160 people who help coach soccer. So if each one has to have a full-fledged background check, that would cost $35 per person for a total of $5,600.
