>Boil advisory …

>… for West George Street in Arcanum.

Update … This message from the village administrator: The boil advisory is for water customers on West George Street between Jones Street and North Main. The Village will take 3 water samples Saturday morning and take them to a lab in Dublin, OH. The Lab will test the water for bacteria. If all three samples come back negative for bacteria the boil advisory can be lifted. The Village will find out the official results early Monday morning and notification will be given to lift the boil avisory if Saturday’s test is negative. If any one of the three tests come back positive for bacteria, the boil advisory will remain in effect. The Village will use the county 911 reverse calling feature and other local media outlets to notify customers of any changes.

>On October 29th, 2009 at approximately 7:33 PM, Darke County Deputies, along with Greenville Township Area Rescue and Greenville Township Fire Department, were dispatched to US Route 127 just South of Kruckeberg Road in reference to a two vehicle injury accident.

A preliminary investigation revealed a John Deere Tractor pulling a grain cart, driven by David M. Fourman, 41, was traveling Southbound on US Route 127 when a blue Chevy Pick-up, driven by Garry L. Flatter, 60, struck the rear tire of the grain cart. Flatter’s vehicle drove off the left side of the road, rolling onto the driver’s side and coming to a rest in the median.

Flatter and Fourman were transported to Wayne Hospital by Greenville Township Area Rescue with non-life threatening injuries.

Motorists are reminded that it is harvest season and to be aware of slow moving farm equipment on Darke County roadways.

This accident remains under investigation. [DCSO press release]
