Two businessmen from China toured Decatur and Adams County this week.

Governor Becky Skillman and Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership CEO John Sampson.
Back in June, Adams Health Network (AHN) President and Chief Executive Officer Tom Nordwick discussed a looming situation that was going to have a negative effect on the financial picture of the network.
