Economist dissects recession, looks at future

November 18, 2010

FORT WAYNE — Does a dead cat bounce? Economists would say yes, but not because they tried it with a real cat.
The theory is that if you have a live cat and a dead cat and you drop them both off a building, the dead cat will bounce higher than the live cat. Or, the longer and deeper the recession, the stronger and more robust recovery there will be when it hits bottom, as opposed to a shallow recession with a shallow recovery, or the “live cat.”

WHITLEY COUNTY — A new group is organizing meals for those down on their luck, by a new church which meets in the Ag Museum, “The Warehouse.”
Called “The Forklift” the meals will be served from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Mondays at The Center for Whitley County Youth, 201 W. Market Street, Columbia City.
“Jeff Wike has worked tremendously for us,” said organizer Hank Workman. They had to bring the kitchen up to Health Department standards which required quite a bit of renovation. But the work is done, inspection completed and they are ready to serve.

More than 200 people crowded the sweltering lower level meeting room in the Whitley County Government Center, some having to listen to the proceedings out in the hall, as eight members of the nine-member board listened to public input on the controversial Whitley County Wind Ordinance.
