The fall harvest is in full swing in Adams County. Local farmer Bruce Barger said his family began harvesting soybeans Monday evening and “we expect the early beans to be real good.” Barger said yields are averaging in the mid-60’s (bushels per acre) with moisture content measured at 13 percent, which Barger called “perfect.”
Former Indiana Pacers head coach Bobby “Slick” Leonard reportedly is an occasional reader of the Decatur Daily Democrat.
The photo above shows Leonard, a resident of Carmel, enjoying a story in the Aug. 30 edition of the Democrat.
