COLUMBIA CITY â€” David Sewell, executive director of the Columbia City/Whitley County Joint Planning and Building Department, came before Columbia Cityâ€™s Common Council last week to request a change of zoning for a parcel of land within the cityâ€™s jurisdiction.
Sewell requested the parcel be re-zoned from agricultural to general business.
â€śThe size of the parcel that is being requested is just shy of 1.5 acres, located on the north side of West Lincolnway, west of 150 west,â€ť said Sewell.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Freedom isnâ€™t free. That was the theme of the ceremony at Greenhill Cemetery Monday presented by American Legion Post 98 and VFW Post 5582.
Under the direction of Richard A. Stark, current adjutant and past commander of Post 98, several speakers told of the meaning behind Memorial Day to hundreds of people carrying American flags.
The day began with a parade going through downtown Columbia City and ending at the cemetery. The parade was directed by Joe Pittenger.
COLUMBIA CITY ÂÂ Ââ€” Tammy Gross will never forget that day in August, almost six years ago, when she heard the words â€śbreast cancerâ€ť attached to her diagnosis.
â€śAugust 15, 2006, I received my diagnosis of breast cancer. On that day I became a survivor,â€ť said Gross.
In the months that followed, Gross underwent four surgeries, over five months of chemotherapy and more than six weeks of daily radiation.
