AKRON — This winning thing is beginning to repeat itself for Whitko boys’ cross country.

FORT WAYNE — The postseason left a tall order for Columbia City boys’ soccer to take on Thursday night.

The Whitley County Republican Party will hold a caucus Oct. 20 to select a new member to the Whitley County Council to replace outgoing at-large Councilman Jim Banks.

According to the Voter Registration Office, seven candidates have thrown their hat into the ring for the position. Banks said Tuesday he knows of at least one more who intends to file.
â€śI expect a few more to jump in as well,â€ť he said.
