Ben Hillyer/The Natchez Democrat — Even though Halloween is 30 days away, the Cub Scouts of Pack 158 got a frightfully informative tour Monday evening of the old Adams County jail from Sheriff Chuck Mayfield as part of their scouting learning experience. Joseph Garrity, right, watches as Mayfield talks about the entrance to the jail which is now the records room and offices of the Adams County Board of Supervisors.
