COLUMBIA CITY — The second annual Veterans Marathon will take off down Van Buren Street Saturday morning with over 750 runners signed up to take part in the day’s three different races.
After a successful first run, marathon officials are asking Whitley County residents to use safety and patience while on the road and at home.
The average American might reflect daily on the household budget, the rising cost of essentials like fuel, food, clothing or how to pay for the childrenâ€™s higher education.
Not much thought is probably given to the benefits associated with increased economic development.
Following that logic, the â€śman or woman on the streetâ€ť may not have much understanding at all of what a TIF, or Tax Increment Financing district is or what role it plays in a communityâ€™s growth.
