The Adams County Republican Party will hold its quadrennial reorganizational meeting at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 2, at GOP headquarters at 149 N. 2nd St. in downtown Decatur.
According to county Party Chairman Rob Noetzel, the state rules of the Indiana Republican Party set the guidelines which call for a reorganizational caucus every four years for the election of the county Republican Central Committee, including the selection of a county chairman, vice chairman, treasurer and secretary.
The Decatur Fire Department was dispatched at 9:59 a.m. on Saturday to the home of Luke Snyder, 1116 Cross Pointe, in response to a house fire.
The fire appears to have started in an attic area above the garage, which was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, according to a spokesperson for the department.
Crews were able to stop the blaze from spreading to the rest of the home, but the garage area received approximately $50,000-$60,000 in damages, according to the spokesperson.
Ralph Kenworthy, 107, believed to be Decatur's oldest resident — and probably Adams County's — died Sunday.
Kenworthy had observed his 107th birthday on January 6.
Arrangements are pending at Haggard-Sefton & Hirschy Funeral Home.
Kenworthy was born in Camden, Ohio, but lived most of his life in Decatur.
