Despite one of the harshest winters in recent memory, spring nonetheless is in the air.
That means that golf carts are coming out of winter storage. And accordingly, complaints about restrictions on the operation of those vehicles are beginning to find their way to public officials.
Such is the case in Berne, where Mayor John Minch on Monday evening updated the city council on a "golf cart situation" which has resurfaced there.
Conditions were mostly on hold in Decatur and Adams County today as everyone waits to see what happens in the next 48 or so hours.
"Not a lot has changed. Everything that was closed yesterday is still closed today," Decatur Street/Sanitation Superintendent Jeremy Gilbert said early this morning.
Two more water rescues were performed on Tuesday by Decatur and Berne firefighters, with the Decatur rescue occurring several miles inside Ohio.
Decatur Fire Chief Les Marckel said the local firefighters were called out just before 6 p.m. to a location along the Harrison-Willshire Rd., near Willshire, Ohio, after an elderly woman drove into deep water and her car was swept an estimated 100 yards off the road into a farm field.
Marckel said the woman stayed in the car as the water reached up to the windows.
