Northeast Indiana residents turned out en masse Sunday to honor the service and memory of Berne native Spc. Nick Taylor, who was killed two weeks earlier while serving with the Indiana National Guard in Afghanistan.
Taylor's body returned to Indiana soil sometime after noon on Sunday, arriving at the 122nd Fighter Wing base adjacent to the Fort Wayne International Airport. Following a private ceremony on the air base, Taylor's body then made the 32-mile trip home.
And he was not alone on that journey.

A recent storm that hit the area was well-documented for the damage that it did to businesses, restaurants, and residences.
Members of the Adams Health Network Board of Trustees were informed of a situation on June 29 that occurred as a result of the storm when total power was disrupted to the hospital's Adams-Heritage nursing home in Monroeville.
