COLUMBIA CITY â The payment deadline for the fall installment of property taxes is Nov. 13.
In addition to tax bills being paid, Whitley County Auditor Jennifer McGuire also encourages county residents to turn in Homestead Verification sheets to receive homestead deductions on property taxes.
McGuire said this is the third year the auditorâs office has asked property owners to verify their homestead, and approximately 1,724 homesteads have yet to be verified in Whitley County.

COLUMBIA CITY â âItâs personal.â That is the recurring thought between numerous cast members of Columbia City High Schoolâs fall production of âOnce Upon a Town.â
The playâs plot centers around a small town initiative to feed, encourage and applaud World War II soldiers passing through North Platte, Neb.
COLUMBIA CITY â The Columbia City Street Departmentâs goal is for leaf pick up trucks to service the city each week.
According to Columbia City Street Superintendent Kelly Cearbaugh, even with the rain earlier this week, the street department is getting the job done.
âIn the past, there have been weeks where itâs all we can do to get through the city in a week. We then go back through it the next week,â said Cearbaugh. âWe have two machines, one for each side of the city, and if one side gets done before the end of the week, they try to help the other side.â
COLUMBIA CITY â The streets of Columbia City will once again play host to the Veterans Marathon, set to take place Saturday, Nov. 10.
This year the race will focus particularly on the U.S. Air Force. Four to five vintage military aircraft will start off the marathon events. The aircraft will meet at the Huntington airport Friday in preparation for the annual event.
The vintage aircraft club has members flying from Louisville, Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Huntington.
CHURUBUSCO â While Churubuscoâs football season seemingly ended the same as it did last year â a lopsided loss at Bishop Luers.
But Fridayâs 21-0 score is hardly comparable to last seasonâs 34-7 loss to the Knights.
The Eagles held the score to a one-possession game for the first 39 minutes of play, had several threatening offensive drives and a defense that forced Luers to multiple 4th-and-longs. The Knights were scoreless for two quarters, only reaching the end zone in the final seven minutes.
