Adams County Commissioners and County Attorney Mark Burry revisited discussions surrounding the possible construction of a telecommunications tower during Monday’s regular weekly meeting.
Last April the commissioners accepted bids for the construction of a 180-foot tower to accommodate and upgrade the county’s 911 and sheriff’s dispatch communications system, which is prone to dead zones and areas with severe interference problems with other communication devices.
The voting has concluded and winners have been announced in the 2013 Callithumpian Baby Photo contest.
Photos of area toddlers have been on display throughout most of October at the Decatur Walgreens pharmacy,123 N. 13th Street. Store patrons have had the opportunity to vote for their favorite photo during that time, with every dollar donated to the Callithumpian Festival good for 10 votes.
Prizes have been awarded to the top three entrants.
Dave Haggard, shown with his family, was the Grand Marshall of this year's Callithumpian Parade.
