Putts drop as City beat North Side

August 24, 2010

   COLUMBIA CITY — Putting is the ultimate test of any golfer’s game. It can make a bad tee shot be forgotten when a long putt is sunk or it can turn against you making a great start turn into a snowman on the scorecard.
   Monday, Columbia City girls’ golf had just enough putts to post its fifth consecutive dual match score under 200 as a team.
   In the process, the Lady Eagles matched their own win total from a year ago beating North Side on the back nine at Eagle Glen Golf Course 198-260.

Mother warns against K2 dangers

August 24, 2010

Linda Ramsey of Columbia City lost her 28-year-old daughter less than a month ago, and as hard as it is, she says she’s talking about it — albeit with teary eyes — to just about anyone who will listen.
Her daughter, Lilly Helsley, of Middletown, died July 30 after smoking K2 for the first time.
Responders found a package of the substance commonly considered to be synthetic marijuana at her home, and her family discovered text messages she’d sent to her friends that day proclaiming that K2 was “just as good as weed.”

Family fun found at Squawbuck Days

August 24, 2010

If you’re looking for family entertainment this weekend, travel no farther than Larwill.
The 156th annual Squawbuck Days festival kicks off Friday night, but the bulk of the activities take place Saturday.
Squawbuck is the name that early settlers used when referring to Chief Mes-qua-buck, a Potawatomi Indian whose village and home was near Oswego, located in what is now Kosciusko County, according to the Squawbuck Days guide.
Now the festival named in his honor is used to help give residents a chance to renew old acquaintances and enjoy Larwill’s past and present.

Schools join push for Central Time

August 24, 2010

In the summer of 2009, a group of Hoosiers concerned about the time zone in which Indiana was placed began a push to get the state on Central Time.
Since then, the momentum has continued to grow and in next year’s legislative session, a State Representative will introduce a resolution to have the state on Central Time.
In the meantime, the Central Time Coalition sent resolutions to Indiana’s public schools to see if they would endorse the group’s efforts.
