    Decatur City Council on Tuesday night approved an outlay of a little more than $15,000 for an environmental study at the site of the former city street department garage, located behind the current police station on 3rd Street.
    The street department moved from the area several years ago to the former Baker & Schultz property on Patterson Street, taking its fuel tanks along. Eventually, the entire building in which the former street department was located was demolished.

All Saints Day

November 6, 2014

    In celebration of All Saints Day on Nov. 1, these St. Joseph School fourth-graders dressed as their patron saints.  The students research the lives of their patron saint, made posters (now on display at school) and dressed up. They attended Mass at the coliseum in Fort Wayne with other diocesan schools in the Fort Wayne area and also attend mass at St. Mary’s in costume and share information about their saint. Pictured above are Ashten Miller, Addie Kintz and Astrid Barrientos.
