One shot: two kills

November 28, 2011

COLUMBIA CITY — A young girl shot two deer with one bullet Wednesday, a feat many hunters don’t experience in a lifetime.
Kelly Schwenn of Etna-Troy Township walked into the woods with her rifle, and walked out of the woods with two does.
Schwenn and her mom, Wendy, have spent the season in a blind in a field west of Albion.
The eight-year-old Northern Heights Elementary School third-grader put down one game to engage another type of game; two in fact.
Kelly was playing her Nintendo DS, a handheld video game, when her mom tapped her on the shoulder to tell her there was a deer in sight.

Columbia City boys basketball falls to Warsaw

November 28, 2011

COLUMBIA CITY — Warsaw proved that even the best of teams can be beaten.
Columbia City, ranked in the Associated Press and Indiana Coaches Association polls, as well as semi-state qualifier last season, was taken down by the Tigers Saturday night.
The Eagles’ 28-17 lead in the second quarter turned into a four-point loss, 63-59, in Columbia City’s home-opener.
“The good news is, we’re pretty good. The bad news is, (we think) we’re pretty good,” Columbia City Head Coach Chris Benedict said. “We let them back in the game and it deflated our momentum. It’s frustrating.”
