COLUMBIA CITY â Mobile home assessment notices have been sent out for 2012, according to Whitley County Auditor Jen McGuire. âThe assessments were done and turned in by Jan. 15. Everyone should have received their assessment by now,â said McGuire.
The deadline for submitting applications for property tax deductions is March 31, 2012.

This is the first time Iâve written about a person Iâve not actually interviewed. Sometimes itâs easier to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission.
Thankfully, I know Richard Zollinger is full of grace and Iâm banking on him extending it to me. Either that or I think Iâm officially off the guest list for the best annual Super Bowl Party in the state of Indiana. I told him, âIâm writing this article with you or without you.â He kept declining an interview, telling me how there are so many more worthy people in Whitley County than he.
