A large subterranean washout caused by a break in a storm water line running from the Adams County Service Complex to Third St. was accidentally found last week (the last week of June, 2011) and the problem is in the process of being repaired. Photos were taken on the east side of the Service Complex on Wednesday after the hole had been partially excavated. The repairs will include not just a new drain pipe to carry rain after it flows from the roof, but also gravel to fill the hole, a new section of sidewalk, new asphalt on a parking lot, and maybe even asphalt on a portion of Third St.

Springlike temperatures of late in Adams County have brought various wildlife out of their winter seclusion and into full view. A rafter of wild turkeys (the term for a group of the large upland game birds) strolls through an open pasture along County Road 200 East, just north of U.S. 224, over the weekend of April 9-10. Judging by increased sightings of the birds, the county's turkey population appears to be on the rise.
