The board of directors of Habitat for Humanity of Adams County recently was stunned by receipt of one of the largest monetary bequests in county history, one which will allow the organization to complete a number of homes for local families who cannot afford to buy houses.
The bequest of almost $125,000 came in the will of Pauline M. DeBolt of Berne, who died on April 4, 2012 in Decatur at the age of 81.
Adams County Attorney Mark Burry reminded the commissioners this week that the date for compliance with the new Fertilizer Use Rule was February 16.
This rule will be enforced by the office of the Indiana chemist's office and affects operations who use more than 10 cubic yards of dry fertilizer or 4,000 gallons of liquid fertilizer per year. Its purpose is largely regulation of organic fertilizer usage, such as manure.
