SPENCERVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Solomon Wickey doesn’t remember much about his trial. At least, that’s what he says.
Wickey puts his fingers to his lips and gazes down. His hair, in a traditional bowl cut, is a deep white now and his beard gray. He sits in a small chair in his office wearing a blue shirt and black pants that note his Amish heritage.
Everything looks "real well" with the work that has been completed on the courthouse, according to Dave Meyer of the county's building and maintenance department.
Meyer told the county commissioners on Monday that he met with architect Dave Sholl, of Schenkel and Schultz Architecture, last Friday to inspect the nearly completed restoration of the courthouse.
The Decatur Chamber of Commerce resumed its monthly luncheon series Monday at the Woodcrest retirement community with a talk from Lisa Smith, Ivy Tech Community College outreach coordinator for Adams County.
Smith said Ivy Tech currently has 150,000 students at 29 locations in Indiana, and offers classes in more than 75 individual communities. The college's northeast division, which includes campuses in Fort Wayne, serves more than 10,000 students, she said.
