Minus the letter “y” in the word county becomes the word count, which began a question in my mind, “What counts in Adams County?”

The things that count are what make us unique and a place to be desired. With a combination of county features that count, we create a desirability index, if you would. It probably involves economics, community life, natural resources and their condition, and the quality of life in general. There are likely more factors, but antidotally we blend them together and then decide if we are content and satisfied to live in Adams County.

Jim Martin is an Adams County commissioner.
