MONROE—Adams Central doubled up Churubusco in the second half erasing a six-point halftime deficit in their first win of the season, 33-27.

With two minutes left in the second quarter, the Lady Jets faced a 15-5 deficit, the biggest of the game for either team. Up until that point, AC was shooting 1-15 from the floor and simply could not buy a basket.

Adams County IT Manager Landon Patterson reported on Monday that the replacement of the phone system in the Adams County E911 Dispatch Center is a problem with the phones that are used by all Adams County government offices, not with the E911 system itself.
Patterson said the issue is that the phones used by Adams County employees, including the dispatch center, have been discontinued by the manufacturer and are now obsolete, meaning if there is a problem Patterson will be unable to fix it.

Safety was a concern, with a major street near one wall, another building near another wall, and even City Hall close by. But the operation went off without any major hitches.
