COLUMBIA CITY â€” With the matter in discussion since March 2010, the Whitley County Plan Commission finally began revising itâ€™s zoning ordinance to add regulations for wind energy conversion systems (WESC).
The commission met Wednesday for a rescheduled session to review and offer proposed amendments to a draft which, if approved, will put standards in place should a wind company seek the opportunity to make an economic investment in Whitley County.
â€śWe certainly have not come to a precise conclusion up to this point,â€ť said Planning and Building Department Executive Director Dave Sewel.
SOUTH WHITLEY â€” The Lady Wildcats basketball team trailed the entire first quarter Saturday in South Whitley. They took the lead early in the second period. They never trailed again, beating the Southwood Lady Knights, 52-44.
Southwoodâ€™s Mollie Harn-ish scored the first bucket and four of the Lady Knightâ€™s first eight points as Whitko went down to an early 8-2 lead.
Lady Wildcat Michaela Sylvester scored the only goal for Whitko in the series until senior Katie Reiff hit a trey nearly three minutes into the game to make the score 8-5.
GOSHEN â€” Two of the three Whitley County schools â€” Columbia City and Whitko â€” competed Saturday in the 44th Annual Goshen Invitational, with the Eagles finishing in third place while the Wildcats came in seventh.
At 182 pounds, Eagle Russell Hazelet came in second overall after defeating Bronsonâ€™s (Mich.) Leo Mora almost six minutes into the match and falling to Fairfieldâ€™s Dalton Hinen in almost identical fashion.
Representing the 220-pound weight class was Columbia Cityâ€™s Tristan Anglin, who made it all the way to the finals before being pinned.
